Josh Gordon, WR, Cleveland Browns (owned in 2.0 percent of ESPN leagues)
The Cleveland Browns wide receiver corps is in shambles and just took another hit this week. Reserve Jordan Norwood, who sparked the Browns offense in recent weeks in relief duty for the already injured Mohamed Massaquoi and Travis Benjamin, has now landed on injured reserve, though he is eligible to return later this season.
That leaves virtually no one other than Greg Little, who can't catch, and Joshua Cribbs, who is an average-at-best receiver with exceptional return skills.
Sure, the Browns have called up quarterback Brandon Weeden's college teammate, Josh Cooper, from the practice squad. But will that impact Gordon's playing time and targets?
He's had 15 targets over the past three games, and that number will be going up with the news of the loss of Norwood.
His ceiling is the sky, as he has the raw physical ability to be a tremendous downfield target for Weeden. His 62-yard touchdown reception against the New York Giants should be testament enough to that.
Hopefully with another week of practice under his belt he'll establish a better rapport with Weeden and find himself putting together one of the biggest breakout performances of Week 6.
