Josh Gordon led the Browns in receiving in Week 5 against the Bills, hauling in four passes for 86 yards and a touchdown on six targets. Gordon's lone score came on a pass that was initially tipped and bobbled, but he was able to maintain possession while getting two steps inbounds.
Brian Hoyer's first pass of the game to Gordon hit him in the hands on a post route, but it was dropped. Gordon had the potential on it to break away for a huge score. He missed another pass that went straight through his hands on an intended bubble screen.
Fantasy impact: It's tough to be frustrated with his stat line, but Gordon could've finished with a monster night. His first target looked like it could have turned into a 90-yard touchdown.
There's no denying his talent. Gordon caught his fourth pass on an out route, as he had time to adjust his facemask while shaking off a defender. Hoyer suffered a knee injury, but Brandon Weeden is still intent on pushing the ball downfield to Gordon, whose value continues to rise.
