Browns | Josh Gordon needs time to acclimate?

Thu, 20 Nov 2014 13:00:24 -0800

Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon was amped up and excited to take part in his first practice with the team this year Wednesday, Nov. 19, but QB Brian Hoyer cautioned that Gordon may need some time to acclimate to offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan's new offense. "It's not so much the physical aspect as knowing the plays, the heat of the battle," said Hoyer. "We do a lot of no-huddle stuff. Obviously, we're working with him on that." Hoyer mentioned that last year's offense was more set on getting the ball downfield, and he said he's never been one to force the ball to one specific player.

Fantasy Tip: Don't expect too much from Gordon ($6,900) in his first game back, although the matchup against the Atlanta Falcons is very tempting. It could be a boom or bust day for Cleveland's most talented offensive weapon.

Browns | Josh Gordon sore after practice

Thu, 20 Nov 2014 11:23:13 -0800

Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon was "sore" after returning to practice Wednesday, Nov. 19, but the plan is to increase his activity each day this week, according to head coach Mike Pettine.

Fantasy Tip: Remember, Gordon ($6,900) hasn't practiced with the team all year, so he's working himself back into peak football shape. Still, he'll be suiting up for his first game of the season this weekend against the Atlanta Falcons, and the beautiful matchup will make it hard for you to keep him out of FantasyScore lineups right off the bat.

Browns | Expect Josh Gordon to be limited

Thu, 20 Nov 2014 09:22:54 -0800

Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon is expected to be limited in Week 12 because it will be his first game of the season, and the team does not want to rush him into the offense, according to head coach Mike Pettine. Atlanta Falcons head coach Mike Smith said he believes Gordon will have a significant role in the game because of his ability to make plays.

Fantasy Tip: It is not known how much playing time Gordon will receive during the game, but he likely will receive plenty of targets when he is on the field. Gordon has an expensive price tag of $6,900 on FantasyScore but has a good matchup against the Atlanta Falcons.

Browns | Josh Gordon doesn't do all drills

Wed, 19 Nov 2014 14:59:31 -0800

Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon (non-injury) practiced on a limited basis Wednesday, Nov. 19. Gordon looked happy and was in great shape, and he caught passes from the quarterbacks in the portion that was open to the media. Head coach Mike Pettine indicated that Gordon will be limited throughout the week. "The trap to fall into is, 'Hey, he's back and let's just go ahead and throw him out there for a bunch of plays.' There's certainly danger inherent in doing that and we have to be smart with how we do it and have a plan to progress through the week," Pettine said. Pettine also cautioned that Gordon isn't back to full football shape, and it'll take him some time to learn a new offense.

Fantasy Tip: Gordon will cost $6,900 at FantasyScore this weekend against the Atlanta Falcons. The matchup is a good one if you trust that Gordon will be a big part of the offense immediately. It's certainly tempting after how Gordon came back from his suspension last year to dominate right off the bat.

Wed, 19 Nov 2014 10:48:35 -0800

"(He said) 'I'm going to try to evoke a pride in Cleveland that can hopefully lead us to the playoffs.' He's excited about coming back."

Fantasy Tip: Gordon could have a huge impact on your fantasy team this weekend with a favorable match up against the Atlanta Falcons. Gordon will cost $6,900 (13.8% of cap) in FantasyScore this week.

Falcons | Atlanta expects heavy dose of Josh Gordon

Tue, 18 Nov 2014 09:32:14 -0800

Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon will make his season debut against the Atlanta Falcons in Week 12, and Falcons head coach Mike Smith doesn't expect the Browns to ease their best receiver back in. "Absolutely I do," Smith said. "They've stated that they want to get him out on the field as quickly as possible. And he's a game-changer. He's a guy that with the ball in his hands, he can make plays. So we're anticipating that we're going to get a full dose of him this week." Gordon had a league-leading 1,646 yards and nine touchdowns in 14 games in 2014. Smith said they aren't afraid to put CB Desmond Trufant, their best cornerback, in a shadow role on Gordon.

Fantasy Tip: Gordon could be an immediate boost to your fantasy club if you've been stashing him. He could also be an immediate asset to FantasyScore lineups against a Falcons squad that has been generous to wide receivers, especially ones with Gordon's ability.
