Is Josh Gordon still worth starting?
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

If you caught any of the Browns' game Week 15 against Cincinnati, chances are the Bengals had the ball. After all, they had it for nearly twice as long as the Browns did, running 71 plays to their 38.

Of course, we all know the reason why. Quarterback Johnny Manziel was making his first NFL start. It resulted in zero points for the Browns and all of five first downs.

The good news for wide receiver Josh Gordon is he was responsible for more than half of Manziel's passing yards. The bad news is Manziel had only 80 passing yards. A three-catch, 48-yard performance isn't what you expect from a stud wide receiver and may well be why you were eliminated from your league's playoffs this weekend.

Worse yet is that it came on the heels of a two-catch, 15-yard performance for Gordon. Of course, this one wasn't his fault, but that's not entirely relevant, is it? If Manziel remains under center for the Browns, Gordon will have to take whatever he gives him.

It's risky, sticking with Gordon in Fantasy. If any Browns player is worth giving the benefit of the doubt, it's him. He's just that special. But with Manziel throwing him the ball, it may not matter. After the performance the rookie just had, you're going on blind faith Week 16 at Carolina, which is reason to ask yourself if the best wide receiver on your bench is as likely to lose it for you as Gordon.

Browns WR Gordon OK in miserable team performance
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Wide receiver Josh Gordon was the offensive player of the game for the Browns on Sunday against Cincinnati - but that's not saying anything.

Gordon caught three passes for 48 yards and the only two decent downfield throws by rookie quarterback Johnny Manziel all afternoon.

Browns WR Gordon upset with benchings on third downs
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Browns struggling wide receiver Josh Gordon admitted Thursday that he was irked about not being on field for some third down plays in the Week 14 loss to Indianapolis, particularly when they were not converted, per the Cleveland Plain Dealer.

Gordon caught just two passes for 15 yards in the defeat and has been criticized for not completing routes and for what is perceived by some as a poor work ethic.

Not all bad for Josh Gordon
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

Josh Gordon's third game back from suspension Week 14 against Indianapolis didn't live up to the first two. Not only did he catch just two passes for 15 yards, but he also saw his playing time reduced -- and by design, apparently.

But what gets overlooked in the disappointment is just how close Gordon came to having a monster game. There was the overthrow on what could have been an 80-plus yard touchdown early in the second half and the decision to pull up early only to turn on the jets again on a 50-yard pass that would have put the Browns in position for a game-winning field goal with about 20 seconds to go if it hadn't slipped through his fingertips. If he converts on either of those long catches, we're not talking about him now, and if he converts on both, we're lauding every Fantasy owner who had the foresight to stash him away for 11 weeks.

And for all the talk of reduced playing time and poor conditioning, the fact Gordon had a chance to put the Browns in position for the game-winning field goal tells us a couple things: He was involved in the game plan right up until the very end, and his indecision and rust were the only things preventing him from turning in a big play at that critical moment.

It may not all be smooth sailing for Gordon, but I'm sticking with the player who led the NFL in receiving last year despite having no better quarterback to work with than ... well, than Hoyer.

Browns WR Josh Gordon a mess against Colts
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Browns ballyhooed wideout Josh Gordon had a disastrous game Sunday against Indianapolis. He was again out-of-sync with quarterback Brian Hoyer and finished with only two catches for 15 yards.

Surprisingly, Gordon was often removed from the game on third downs. He tied for the team lead in targets with seven, but will have to wait until Week 15 against Cincinnati to bounce back.
