Josh Gordon stays atop Browns depth chart: Fantasy implications

Matt Sullivan

Josh Gordon will remain No. 2 on the Browns' depth chart even when Mohamed Massaquoi returns from a hamstring injury. We break down the fantasy implications.

Josh Gordon is likely to retain his starting spot in the Cleveland Browns' receiving corps even when Mohamed Massaquoi is able to return from injury, Tony Grossi of ESPN Cleveland reports. Massaquoi practiced for the first time Wednesday since injuring his hamstring in Week 3 against the Buffalo Bills.

Gordon has been very impressive with Massaquoi and Travis Benjamin out, catching five passes for 181 yards and three touchdowns off 12 targets over the last two weeks.

Fantasy Impact: If you are going to own a wide receiver on the Browns outside of Greg Little, Gordon appears to be your best bet going forward. He certainly put up great numbers for fantasy owners the last two weeks, though it should be noted that his production was almost entirely dependent on the deep ball. Gordon could put up a dud if Brandon Weeden can't connect on a difficult throw.

Massaquoi is still ostensibly ahead of Benjamin, but considering the latter is just a rookie, Massaquoi may soon be losing ground there, too. Wait to see how he is targeted Sunday against the Indianapolis Colts before moving him back into your fantasy lineup.
