Josh Gordon continues hot start to season for fantasy owners

Jason Miller

The Browns wide receiver has averaged more than 100 yards a game since his return from suspension. We break down the fantasy implications.

Cleveland Browns wide receiver Josh Gordon continued his hot start to 2013 Sunday, catching seven passes for 126 yards as the Browns fell 31-17 to the Detroit Lions.

Gordon has averaged just over 107 yards per game in the four games he's played this season. The wide receiver missed the first two weeks to a suspension. He has two scores on the season.

Fantasy impact: There was some concern that, with quarterback Brian Hoyer lost for the year to a torn ACL, Gordon's production would suffer with Brandon Weeden back at the helm. Those concerns were apparently unfounded, as the two connected for a touchdown after Weeden took over a week ago, and averaged 18 yards a completion together Sunday.

In a deeper league, Gordon could be a defensible WR1 going forward. He's almost certainly a fine WR2 at worst. The Browns take on the Green Bay Packers next Sunday in a game that should see plenty of points scored; odds are Gordon continues his hot ways.
