Josh Gordon posted on twitter this morning, "I will be stepping away from the football field for a bit to focus on my mental health."
Tom Pelissero reports that Gordon "is facing another indefinite suspension for violating terms of his reinstatement under the substance abuse policy, per source." Obviously this is a blow to the Patriots, and could be the end of the line for Gordon, who has flashed on the field but struggled to stay unsuspended. Chris Hogan and Phillip Dorsett's playing time figures to get a bump, but the Patriots will use Cordarrelle Patterson as well. No one stands out as a great add at this point.
NE WR Josh Gordon - Week 15 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 15 at Pittsburgh Steelers
As usual, there are a lot of reasons to like Patriots players in fantasy this week. New England has an implied team total of 27.5, among the highest in the league. Only Baltimore is averaging more offensive plays per game this season than New England, and only Baltimore and Dallas have more offensive plays over the past three weeks. Plus, this game has an over/under of 52, among the highest of Week 15. Pittsburgh ranks fifth in aFPA to WRs, but with Josh Gordon's play-making ability and the previously stated factors, he's again a boom-or-bust WR2 option.
