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.

Atlanta Falcons CBs Robert Alford and Desmond Trufant gained plenty of experience in their rookie season of 2013, and they're already considering the possibility of being one of the better duos at cornerback in the league. "We want our names to be out there as the Seahawks cornerbacks and the other cornerbacks. We want to put ourselves out there and let the league know we're top-tier cornerbacks in Atlanta, too," Trufant said.
