He came on strong in the second half of last season, Six of his last seven games included games with seven or more targets, and he was far from a polished route runner. Gordon barely had any preseason last year in his rookie campaign and most signs point to him being a player that has established a rapport with Brandon Weeden.
Weeden has really struggled in getting the ball to his receivers in Week 1 and the team really needs Gordon to be back. The good news is that Weeden has had some time to throw the ball and the drops from the lack of open guys has been his primary undoing.
Fantasy impact: The Browns are starving for Gordon to come back and outside of Jordan Cameron, there is tremendous opportunity. He has to be owned in all leagues and can be viewed as a low-end WR2 against the Vikings in Week 3.
