Josh Gordon explodes for 132 yards and a touchdown for fantasy owners

Peter Aiken

The Browns' No. 1 wide receiver bounced back with a 100-yard performance versus the Chiefs. We break down the fantasy implications.

Cleveland Browns wide receiver Josh Gordon played with his third quarterback of the season, but it didn't stop him from lighting up the score sheet.

It hasn't mattered which quarterback the Browns have trotted out under center, because Gordon has thrived with all of them. This time, with Jason Campbell at the helm, Gordon led the team with five catches for 132 yards and a touchdown while also leading the Browns with 10 targets. His highlight of the game came on a nifty double-move that left the Kansas City Chiefs secondary in the dust on a 47-yard touchdown catch near the end of the first half.

Fantasy Spin: It's not common for receivers to thrive with shaky quarterback situations, but the Browns have made the most of what they've been dealt. Gordon is a huge reason for that, as he has averaged 97 receiving yards per game and now has three touchdowns on the season.

Though the Browns offense is not a powerhouse, it's clear that Gordon is what keeps the chains moving in Cleveland. There's no reason to expect that to change, and with the Baltimore Ravens next on the schedule, he should get plenty of looks once again.
