Those that took a chance on Gordon received some serious Week 3 dividends: He caught 10 balls for 146 yards and a score while being targeted a whopping 19 times.
He won't have such an easy time on Sunday. The Bengals have shut down a few receivers throughout the season and Gordon owners are going to have to temper expectations. The Browns still can't run the ball at all, so they're going to sling it again at home.
Fantasy impact: Despite the sub-par matchup, there's no way owners are going to sit Gordon. He's the only player on the Browns that is really a starting-caliber receiver since Greg Little can't catch and Travis Benjamin can't run routes. He has big upside, but don't panic if he flops.
