Gordon hauled in five of eight targets for 96 receiving yards during Sunday's 34-33 loss to Miami.
Gordon has been a steady 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 (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 that allowed 14 receiving touchdowns to opposing 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 caught four of 12 targets for 81 yards in Sunday's 34-10 loss to the Titans.
Gordon and Julian Edelman both topped 80 yards on 12 targets apiece, while the rest of New England's passing game was kept quiet. The trade acquisition is starting to look comfortable with his new team, totaling 353 yards and a touchdown on 17 catches over the past four weeks. Gordon and the Patriots will be on bye in Week 11.
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.
