Josh Gordon gets 4th score for Browns, fantasy owners

Ken Blaze-USA TODAY Sports

The Browns wide receiver had one big play that salvaged his value Sunday. We break down the fantasy implications.

Cleveland Browns wide receiver Josh Gordon has been one of the league's best wide receivers since making his season debut in Week 3. That continued Sunday in the Browns' 41-20 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals.

Gordon's value came primarily from one play in the third quarter of the game. Overall, he caught five passes for 125 yards and a touchdown, but his big play was a 74-yard touchdown reception. Outside of that play, he had only 51 yards on four catches.

Fantasy impact: Gordon was targeted 15 times in the game, nine more than any other wide receiver on the team, and three more than the second-most targeted Browns player, running back Chris Ogbonnaya. He has quickly become the favorite target of quarterback Jason Campbell.

Sunday was Gordon's fourth 100-yard game and he grabbed his fourth touchdown of the season. It brought him to 751 receiving yards overall, and cemented his status as a low-end WR1/high-end WR2 going forward.
