Josh Gordon continues his huge performance for Browns, fantasy owners

The Browns wide receiver had a huge game Sunday, his second in a row. We break down the fantasy implications.

When Cleveland Browns wide Josh Gordon had 237 receiving yards and a touchdown a week ago, fantasy owners probably thought it couldn't get much better. And then Week 13 happened. Gordon put together another, even huger game Sunday in the Browns' 32-28 loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Gordon caught 10 passes for 261 yards and two touchdowns Sunday, becoming the first wide receiver in NFL history to have back-to-back 200-yard games. His first score came on a 21-yard pass early in the second quarter, then his second was on a 95-yard connection with Weeden with four minutes left in the game. It put Cleveland ahead 28-25 and in line to win the game until Jacksonville scored another touchdown with 40 seconds left.

Fantasy impact: Had Gordon not missed the season's first two games with a suspension, he'd likely be No. 2 in fantasy points among wide receivers, behind only Calvin Johnson of the Detroit Lions. He's been a super-stud at the position, even as the Browns have struggled to get much from the quarterback position.

There is no reason to think Gordon's production will be going away any time soon. He's a must-start in every league, but everyone knew that already.
