Throughout this year, one of the biggest fantasy surprises has to be Cleveland Browns second year WR Josh Gordon.

After starting the year with a 2-game suspension, Josh Gordon made up for it, and then some. He returned this season in Week 3 when the Browns took on the Minnesota Vikings with Brian Hoyer at QB following a Brandon Weeden injury.

First game back, ease him in…. No. Josh Gordon finished with 10-146-1 and that was just the beginning.

What stopped Josh Gordon from being even more dominant was inconsistent and injury plagued QB play. He shuffled between Brandon Weeden, Brian Hoyer and Jason Campbell.

In 2 full games with Hoyer, Gordon averaged 7-109-.5, a small sample size indeed, but every Browns receiver was much more productive with Hoyer in the lineup.

This year Josh Gordon had some of the most insane game we’ve ever seen including becoming one of the only WRs in NFL history to have back-to-back 200 yard receiving games.

So the question is: Will Josh Gordon be fantasy footballs No. 1 WR option in re-draft formats?

My guess is he’ll be number two. Dynasty, is a different story, but in re-draft formats it’s really hard to dethrone the all mighty Calvin Johnson as he has been much more dominant over the years.

The Browns QB situation is in disarray. Do they draft a QB? Who will be available? Manziel? Bortles? Do they trade up and get Bridgewater? Do they stick wit Hoyer? What about Weeden. Too many uncertainties, but no matter, Gordon will still be dominant as he’ll be any QBs favorite target.

My predictions for next year for Josh Gordon? The Browns will draft Johnny Manziel and finish with over 100 catches and over a dozen TDs.

Josh Gordon is worthy of a 1st round pick in PPR formats.

 

Top-5 WRs for 2014

1. Calvin Johnson

2. Josh Gordon

3. AJ Green

4. Brandon Marshall

5. Julio Jones

2014 NFL schedule to be released Wed at 8 pm ET

Wait no more, as the NFL will release the 2014 Regular Season Schedule on Wednesday at 8 PM ET.


Chris Johnson signs with Jets

Chris Johnson has agreed to a 2- year  deal with the New York Jets.  It is my guess he is on a trial basis, working on an incentive program.  The quarterback situation is ambiguous, so the Jets look to lean on the ground game.  Johnson will join Chris Ivory in the backfield in what looks to be another NFL platoon. CJ2k is an intriguing pick in fantasy land.


Andre Brown signs with the Texans

Andre Brown is headed to Houston to join the Texans. Brown is an intriguing player that saw his season derailed due to injury in 2013. As a back up to Arian Foster, he will have flex value certain weeks. Brown should see a decent amount of carries. Training camp will give indication on what the split may be. In addition he could see regular snaps if Foster were to miss any significant time, Brown would have tremendous value.

MLB Latest News
Clay Buchholz

Clay Buchholz struggled in Monday’s outing, lasting only 2 1/3 innings. He gave up six runs on seven hits, with only one strikeout. Buchholz has been somewhat inconsistent this year, he’s had two quality starts but two awful starts as well. Buchholz is looking to regain his form from a great 2013 season. He will look to bounce back Saturday against Toronto.


Hunter Pence

Hunter Pence continued to struggle on Sunday afternoon, going 0 for 3 with a strikeout. He is hitting .157 on the season. Pence could be dropped in the lineup or get a couple of days off to help him get back on track.


Martin Perez

Martin Perez threw eight scoreless innings on Sunday against the Astros. Perez induced four double plays on Sunday, which helped his cause. He makes for a interesting spot starter for your fantasy teams depending on the matchup, but he is not one to count on. Perez is sporting a 2.70 ERA through three starsts this season.

Coming as a bit of a blow to Everton’s efforts to pass Arsenal for the 4th spot in the table and Champions League participation, manager Roberto Martinez announced Tuesday that Mirallas suffered a small tear in his groin muscle and will miss the remaining three fixtures in the season. The injury occurred in the defeat of Manchester United this past weekend as the forward limped off the pitch after the completion of the match.

Petr Cech, Chelsea – GKP

Chelsea continued their quest in the Champions League on Tuesday earning a 0-0 draw at Athletico Madrid, but the result came at a cost. Cech was forced off the pitch in just the 18th minute after taking a hard fall on a corner. The club already has announced that Cech is set to miss the rest of the season with a dislocated shoulder. Also leaving with injury was John Terry, who is set to miss a month after limping off in the 73rd minute. A blow to Chelsea’s EPL title chase as they face Liverpool this Sunday.
