During a Tuesday conference call, offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels shed some light on how far Josh Gordon has come in catching up to the rest of the Patriots offense since he was traded from the Cleveland Browns.

McDaniels praised the work that Gordon has put in, but stressed that he and the Patriots "still in the growing phase" of acclimating him into the offense.

"I don't think we've been together long enough to say he has a foundation that's completely finished," McDaniels said. "We're gonna continue to work on that each week."

Fantasy Impact:

While the Patriots offense is known for being famously difficult for receivers to grasp, Gordon has bucked the trend by seeing the field early in his tenure -- as well as getting targets from Tom Brady in key situations. Gordon is coming off a 5-130-1 line against the Packers, so things continue to trend up for Gordon in this offense.

The Patriots are disciplining WR Josh Gordon during tonight’s game vs. the Bills because of tardiness. He’s expected to be kept off the field for several series — about a quarter — as they continue to work with & manage him.

Fantasy Impact:

It’ll be regular playing time after that, according to Rapoport. Reports say Gordon missed a meeting last week and was late for the team bus on Sunday. After what seemed like a great start to his time in New England, this is something to keep an eye on. Other reports say the Patriots are interested in adding WRs Demaryius Thomas and Golden Tate before the trade deadline.

Belichick on Josh Gordon: "I would just say his role is expanding weekly and we'll just see how it all plays out."

Fantasy Impact:

Gordon saw his snaps increase from 26.1% in Week 5 against the Colts to over 80% against the Chiefs last week. Gordon was targeted nine times and caught five balls for 42 yards. It seems like at this point Gordon is only going to improve on those numbers

Patriots WR Chris Hogan (thigh, questionable) returned to take limited reps Friday after missing practice Thursday and is questionable for Week 6. Hogan’s return means that he’s likely to play Sunday night against the Colts. He’s playing a ton of snaps, so his absence would lead to more opportunity for Josh Gordon.

Patriots WR Josh Gordon (hamstring, questionable) took limited practice reps all week and is questionable for Week 6. Gordon is likely to play on Sunday night. He hasn’t cracked a 30% snap rate since joining the Patriots, but the team should be ramping up his snaps soon.

Thursday, October 11, 2018, 7:19pm

Patriots WR Chris Hogan (thigh) missed practice Thursday after taking limited reps Wednesday. It’s a midweek downgrade so suddenly Hogan is questionable for Week 6. With Julian Edelman back and Josh Gordon in the fold, Hogan’s targets are getting squeezed, though he’s still playing a lot of snaps. His fantasy production will be sporadic. If Hogan is out, the other New England receivers would each get a small bump in expected production.
