Cleveland Browns wide receiver Josh Gordon is emerging as No. 1 option for team. We breakdown the fantasy implications.

Cleveland Browns wide receiver Josh Gordon is emerging as the No. 1 threat in the team's passing attack. The rookie receiver has quickly become a favorite of quarterback Brandon Weeden. In two consecutive weeks now, Gordon has scored on deep balls from Weeden.

This is a good sign of chemistry developing between quarterback and receiver. Gordon finished Week 6 with three receptions for 99 yards and a touchdown.

Fantasy Analysis: It's time to start considering Gordon as a potential flex option in leagues. If you're looking for a sleeper or decent contributor that may not be a household name, you might like what you find in Josh Gordon. Weeden has felt comfortable going to Gordon and they've shown the ability to connect on the long ball. If the Browns need a big play downfield for a potential score, there is a good chance Gordon has his number called. Consider him a low-end match-up flex play or bye week sub.
