Gordon hauled in five of eight targets for 96 receiving yards during Sunday's 34-33 loss to Miami. Gordon has been a steady fantasy WR2 option over the past month and a half, with at least four receptions and 70 receiving yards in four of his past five outings (with a touchdown catch in two of those five games as well). He was slowly integrated into the offense after being acquired by New England on Sept. 18, but the ultra-talented Gordon has carved out a sizable workload for himself within the high-powered Patriots passing attack. The 27-year-old garnered just six combined targets between his first two games with the team but has averaged 7.5 targets per contest since Week 6, second to only Julian Edelman's nine targets per game among Patriots wideouts during that span. Week 15 brings a matchup against a Pittsburgh defense that ranked top-10 against the pass entering Sunday (228.5 yards allowed per game) but allowed 14 receiving touchdowns to wideouts in 2018 (12th-most).
Gordon caught all three of his targets for 58 yards and a touchdown during Sunday's 24-10 win over the Vikings. Gordon finished fourth on the team in targets, but he averaged a healthy 19.3 yards per catch and trailed only James White in receiving yardage. He also marked the occasion with his fourth touchdown of the season on a 24-yard play to break a tie game in the third quarter. After a turbulent start to the season, Gordon has finally achieved some consistency and now has at least 70 receiving yards or a touchdown in five of the last six games. He'll look to keep it up next Sunday against the Dolphins.
Gordon caught all five of his targets for 70 yards in Sunday's 27-13 win over the Jets. Gordon finished second behind Julian Edelman in receiving yards while leading the team with five catches. His five targets tied Edelman and James White for second on the team behind tight end Rob Gronkowski, who had the ball thrown his way seven times in his return from back and ankle injuries. Unfortunately for Gordon's owners, both of those other guys found the end zone while Gordon didn't. Heading into a Week 13 clash with the Vikings, Gordon has mustered only three touchdowns this season in his time with the Browns and Patriots.
Gordon doesn't appear on the Patriots' Week 10 injury report, Zack Cox of NESN.com reports. This is notable with Gordon having been playing through a hamstring issue since joining the Patriots in mid-September. His absence from Wednesday's report also confirms that the dislocated finger Gordon dealt with heading into Sunday's 31-17 win over the Packers isn't a concern as a Week 10 matchup with the Titans looms. Now that Gordon has carved out a starting role with the Patriots that yields plenty of snaps and led to 10 targets in Week 9, he carries weekly fantasy appeal.
Gordon caught five passes (10 targets) for 130 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 31-17 win over the Packers. Gordon's 10 targets tied Julian Edelman for the team lead, highlighted by a 55-yard touchdown that essentially sealed a victory. Gordon has now reached 100 yards in two of the last three weeks, and it's no coincidence his two big performances came with Rob Gronkowski (back/ankle) sidelined. Expect Gordon's projections to get a bump if Gronk is unable to suit up against the Titans in Week 10. He also has a good chance to appear on the injury report, however, as he's been bothered by his hamstring all season and then dealt with a finger injury Sunday against the Packers. The new issue obviously didn't prevent Gordon from having a productive night, but he did go to the sideline on a few occasions to have the training staff pop his finger back into place, per Doug Kyed of NESN.com.
