I honestly didn’t think I would recommend that you add any of the Cleveland Browns’ wide receivers to your fantasy roster this year. There appeared to be a dearth of talent at the position and, you know, the whole Brandon Weeden thing factored in as well.
Alas, Josh Gordon has changed my mind.
The rookie has been fantastic in the past two weeks, with 35 combined fantasy points. In total, he’s logged five receptions for 181 yards and three touchdowns over those two games after managing just seven catches for 93 yards and no touchdowns in the first four games.
Now, I know you see the danger here. Any time a player has just 12 receptions and 26 targets in six games, he presents a risk to fantasy owners since all of his value is coming from touchdowns.
