The seventh-year veteran receiver was removed from the commissioner’s exempt list Monday and added to the team’s active 53-player roster with coach Pete Carroll saying the expectation is that he will play Sunday against the Los Angeles Rams.
Carroll also said veteran tight end Greg Olsen “is returning this week’’ after having practiced last week.
Carroll said the team is planning the week like Gordon has a chance to contribute. For fantasy purposes, he's probably a bit of a risk especially since it's the finals for most leagues, but the story said Gordon could resume his role as the team's WR3. That would mean passing Moore in the pecking order. Moore has played about 46% of the snaps this year and is having a career year as far as receptions go. Gordon has not played since last Dec 15 at Carolina.
As for Olsen, he practiced last week but wasn't activated so one can assume he was close. Carroll said via the story, assuming Olsen makes it through the practice week that “he’ll be back in, ready to go.’’ Olsen suffered a plantar fascia injury on Nov. 19 against Arizona and was then placed on injured reserve.
SEA WR Josh Gordon - Week 12 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 12 at Philadelphia
Josh Gordon got his first action as a member of the Seahawks. He caught two passes for 27 yards. It will be a settling in process for the veteran, but his stock should keep rising as we get to the end of the regular season. There is little doubt about the talent on the field. Eventually, he could be a fantasy factor.
If Gordon is available on the waiver wire, scoop him up. He is not a fantasy factor for Week 12, but it could be a good investment as we get closer to playoffs.
