Browns WR Josh Gordon (not injury related) took limited practice reps again Thursday. Gordon is currently ranked as our #13 WR for Week 12. Last year, after being suspended for the first two games, Gordon returned (with QB Brian Hoyer) in Week 3 and caught 10 passes for 146 yards and a touchdown against the Vikings. It’s very difficult to bench him in a great matchup with the Falcons even if he is a bit limited in his first game back.

Browns Beat: Falcons wise to expect a 'full dose' of WR Josh Gordon

ESPN - [Full Article]

Browns beat writer Pat McManamon on WR Josh Gordon's potential workload in Week 12: Who in the world doesn't give a full dose of Gordon if he's ready to play? The guy has superstar ability and superstar talent. He opens up the field, draws double-teams, has excellent hands and runs like a gazelle. To think you hold a guy back who brings that to the field is borderline lunacy. The only thing Gordon might lack is being in game shape, but last season he stepped in after a two-game suspension and had a huge game. The Browns are tempering expectations, and they might be wise to do so. I believe nothing will hold Gordon back. The Falcons are wise to plan for him to be full-go.

Fantasy Impact:

In Week 3 of last year, Gordon came off of a two-game suspension (with Brian Hoyer at QB) and turned 19 targets into 10 catches for 145 yards and a touchdown. It was a shorter suspension and a different coaching staff, but even if Gordon doesn't play 90 percent of the snaps, he can still post a great fantasy line against a shaky Falcons pass defense.
