Josh Gordon emerging as Browns' top fantasy receiver

Matt Sullivan

Josh Gordon is having a nice hot streak and emerging as one of the Browns' top playmakers. We break down the fantasy implications.

Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon is quickly emerging as the "top dog" at receiver, according to the Canton Repository. Gordon has been on a nice little hot streak lately, with five catches for 181 yards and three TDs in just the last two games.

Mohamed Massaquoi and Travis Benjamin are expected to be back this week, but the Browns expect Gordon to continue playing a prominent role in their offense.

Fantasy Impact: The Browns raised some eyebrows when they spent a 2013 second-round pick to grab Gordon in the supplemental draft, but they're getting a nice return on their investment so far. Gordon has emerged as Brandon Weeden's favorite deep threat and is capable of taking it to the house every time.

That said, he's still extremely raw and doesn't see that many targets a game. Right now, Gordon is a boom-or-bust fantasy player that you can't really trust to produce consistently every week. On the other hand, he has a good matchup against the Colts' defense this week, so pencil him in as a WR4 or WR3 if you're feeling lucky.
