Fantasy Football start/sit advice, TNF: Josh Gordon

Hannah Foslien

After an enormous 2013 debut, the Browns wide receiver had a slightly quieter second game. What can we expect in his third game?

Wide receiver Josh Gordon made a huge splash in his 2013 debut for the Cleveland Browns. He caught ten of his 19 targets in Week 3 for 146 yards and a touchdown, even adding a 22-yard rush. In his second game, last Sunday against the Bengals, Gordon was much quieter. He caught four of his nine targets for 71 yards.

The Browns went 0-2 while Gordon was out with suspension, and are 2-0 since his return. They head into a Thursday night matchup against a Buffalo Bills secondary that is battling injury, with safety Jairus Byrd (foot) and cornerback Leodis McKelvin (hamstring) both questionable.

Fantasy impact: Considering the Bills' injuries, and the fact that Buffalo already struggles against the pass, Gordon, tight end Jordan Cameron, and quarterback Brian Hoyer have to be salivating entering this game. Four different receivers (including two Jets) have amassed 100-yard games against Buffalo already this season, and Gordon appears likely to be the fifth.

Even in a Thursday night game - a night that has tempered offensive production throughout its NFL history - Gordon has to be a must-start against Buffalo. He's a stout receiver poised to have a huge game.
