Gordon caught five of his team-high nine targets for 42 yards in Sunday's 43-40 win over the Chiefs.
In his third game with the Patriots, Gordon (who logged 18 snaps in each of his first two outings with the team) was on the field for 63 of a possible 78 snaps. Meanwhile, Julian Edelman logged 71 snaps and Chris Hogan was out there for 47 snaps. Looking ahead, we expect Gordon to remain a key weapon in the Patriots attack, and as he gains added familiarity with the team's playbook and gets more in sync with QB Tom Brady, production will follow. He'll take aim at the rugged Bears defense on the road in Week 7, which poses a challenge, but the arrow is clearly pointing up for Gordon now that his workload is on the upswing.
Gordon (hamstring) is listed as active for Sunday night's game against the Chiefs.
Gordon -- who was acquired from the Browns last month -- was active for the Patriots' last two games, en route to logging 18 offensive snaps in each contest. With his comfort with the team's offense growing, the talented wideout's workload could see an uptick in a potential Week 6 shootout, making the 6-foot-3, 225-pounder an intriguing fantasy lineup option in his third outing catching passes from QB Tom Brady.
Gordon (hamstring), who is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Chiefs, is expected to play, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
With no reports of any setback with the hamstring injury he first suffered back in September when he was still a member of the Browns, Gordon never seemed to be in much peril for the Week 6 matchup. Though Gordon seems on track to suit up, it's unclear if an active status would come with an expanded role in the game plan. Gordon has been limited to 18 offensive snaps in both of his appearances with New England, hauling in four of six targets for 82 yards and a touchdown in those contests.
Gordon (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Sunday night's game against the Chiefs after practicing in a limited fashion all week.
The wideout has been managing a hamstring issue since he was acquired from the Browns last month, but Gordon suited up for both of the Patriots' last two games, logging 18 offensive snaps in each contest in the process. With a 6-foot-3, 225-pound frame and top-flight playmaking skills, Gordon carries obvious upside in the New England offense. Assuming he's a go this weekend, which we believe will be the case, Gordon's workload could see an uptick in a potential shootout Week 6, making him an intriguing fantasy lineup option in his third game catching passes from Tom Brady.
Gordon (hamstring) remained listed as a limited participant at practice Thursday.
We doubt that there's much concern over Gordon's Week 6 status, but one story line that could impact his fantasy prospects this week is that Chris Hogan (thigh) did not practice Thursday. Hogan's 63 snaps (out of a possible 69) on offense in Week 5 were tops among the Patriots' wideouts, so if he is limited or out Sunday night against the Chiefs, Gordon (18 snaps in Week 5) would likely see an uptick in playing time.
