Gordon (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Sunday night's game against the Lions. The newly-acquired wideout was limited at practice all week, and he's new to the Patriots offense, so it hard to predict how much of an impact he might make Sunday night, assuming he suits up. A wait-and-see approach seems prudent Week 3, but beyond that, Gordon carries undeniable rest-of-season fantasy upside.
Gordon (hamstring) was listed as a limited participant in Thursday's practice, Mike Reiss of ESPN.com reports. Gordon wasn't able to increase his level of participation in his second practice with the team, but the Patriots were at least able to tie up some loose ends in their acquisition of the wideout, which was made official Wednesday afternoon, per Mary Kay Cabot of The Cleveland Plain Dealer. With the trade now finalized, Gordon's health -- in addition to familiarizing himself with the Patriots' playbook -- remain the only obstacles he'll need to clear to suit up Sunday in Detroit. Gordon may only handle limited snaps in his first game with New England, but the 27-year-old offers undeniable rest-of-season fantasy upside if he's able to stay focused and build quick chemistry with quarterback Tom Brady.
Gordon (hamstring) was limited at Wednesday's practice, Mike Reiss of ESPN.com reports. Gordon, whose locker was perhaps strategically placed alongside quarterback Tom Brady's, could well end up in uniform with his new team Sunday against the Lions. In such a scenario, it's expected that he would be eased into the team's wideout mix, with a limited snap count likely on tap. As he picks up the New England offense and moves past the hamstring issue, there's some fantasy upside to be had here, considering Gordon's obvious talent and potential to build an on-field rapport with a Hall of Fame-caliber signal-caller.
Gordon (hamstring) was in attendance for practice Wednesday, Mike Reiss of ESPN.com reports. The Patriots agreed in principle Monday to acquire Gordon from the Browns, but the trade hasn't been finalized due to the language of the deal, according to Tom Pelissero of NFL.com. Gordon is still listed on the Patriots' active roster and depth chart, however, suggesting it won't be long before the two sides make the deal official. As far as Gordon's health is concerned, it remains to be seen if he'll be listed as a full or limited participant on Wednesday's practice report after the hamstring injury prevented him from suiting up for the Browns in Week 2. Gordon's presence on the field in any capacity suggest that issue likely isn't much of a concern, but it's still difficult to predict when Gordon might make a fantasy impact with his new squad. In addition to proving he's healthy and focused, Gordon will need to get up to speed with the team's offense, something that could impact his snap count if he plays in Week 3.
Gordon (hamstring) must take a physical for Monday's trade from Cleveland to New England to be made official, Michael Giardi of NFL Network reports. Gordon arrived late to training camp and played 69 of 89 offensive snaps in the Browns' regular-season opener, but a late-week snafu during a promotional shoot Friday caused the team to announce their intentions to release the mercurial wideout. Instead, he garnered significant interest on the trade market, and the Patriots bit Monday, sending a 2019 fifth-round pick to the Browns. Once the deal was announced, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network relayed that Gordon underwent an MRI on his injured hamstring that "came out fine." However, Gordon appears as if he has to face the Patriots' medical staff before his next destination is confirmed.
