Hard to pin Josh Gordon's struggles on him
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Browns wide receiver Josh Gordon hasn't been nearly the dynamic playmaker we expected since his return from suspension, as he put together yet another subpar performance in Week 16 against the Panthers.

Gordon had four receptions on seven targets to finish second on the team with 45 yards, but continues to disappoint Fantasy owners. Gordon, who was arguably the top receiver in the league a year ago, has just one 100-yard effort in five games, and has yet to find the end zone. Of course, it's not all Gordon's fault, as the Browns' quarterbacks have thrown just one touchdown in that time, compared to 10 interceptions.

Gordon made the most out of a bad quarterback situation last season too, but at some point, it is just too much to overcome. The Browns' quarterbacks have just 12 touchdowns to 15 interceptions on the season, production they almost have to improve on next season.

Gordon's upside remains tremendous, but it's awfully tough to rely on him heading into Week 17 against the Ravens. Owners in long-term Dynasty and keeper leagues shouldn't let five bad games with zero help from the quarterbacks dictate how they view him, however.

Gordon leads small group of Browns contributors Sunday
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Rather than play a standout role, Browns wideout Josh Gordon merely led a small group of minor contributors to a Sunday loss against the host Panthers.

Gordon finished with four catches for 45 yards. Also chipping in were tight end Jim Dray and wideout Taylor Gabriel, both of whom caught just one short pass.

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.
