Arguably the game’s best receiver last year will be rejoining the 6-4 Cleveland Browns on Monday. Josh Gordon, who had his season long suspension reduced to 10 games, will be set to make his season debut on Sunday in Atlanta against a Falcons team that is giving up the second most yards in the league to wide receivers at 288.8 yards per game, and the second most yards per reception at 13.1 yards per catch. That’s almost like a convicted pot smoker that’s jonesing for a bong hit getting out of jail to find out that they’ve legalized marijuana in his home state. [Jay’s Note: Uhh… if someone is jonesing for pot, they have deeper issues.]

He’s gonna light it up!

Cleveland’s remaining games after the Falcons include the Bills, Ravens, Colts, Bengals and Panthers. Only the Bills find themselves in the top half of the league with regards to receiving yards allowed to opposing teams. Things couldn’t be laid out more nicely for Gordon to succeed. To make matters even better, the Browns are having a decent season and are right in the playoff hunt and have every incentive to win. The pressure will not be on Gordon to save the offense or to turn around a failing season. Instead he will be needed to just do what he does. Catch passes.

Gordon should be owned in 100% of leagues. I picked him up in both of my leagues way back in week 2 and have been waiting for this week for 10 weeks. Until now the most productive fantasy player plucked off the wire this season has likely been Justin Forsett. Well move over Justin because Commissioner Gordon is calling on the red phone to tell you to “move bitch, get out the way. Get out the way bitch, get out the way”. If not suspended Gordon would have undoubtedly been a first round selection in fantasy drafts. Getting a first rounder off the wire, even if only for a few weeks, is like Christmas come early. And guess what, it’s mid-November and I already have my Christmas tree up. And I’m Jewish! Congratulations and good luck to every Josh Gordon owner out there. Start and he shall receive.

Free Josh Gordon. Unleash the Kraken!

      @Dom B: Colts

        @malamoney: Ok…how about SF or NE?

        • malamoney

          @BTDRNKS: SF over NE this week

    time to cut the cord on Cord Patterson and pick up Latavius Murray for playoff stretch insurance?

    • malamoney

      malamoney says:

      @Murray: I’d be ok with that move, since I probably wouldn’t be starting either player. It depends a little on your other WRs and what WRs are available on your wire.

    I need a fill in for Big Ben this week and I have no faith in RG3. Does Hoyer get a bump with Gordon back or roll with McCown @ Chi this week?

    • malamoney

      malamoney says:

      @Teddy Heater: If I had to choose one I’d roll with Hoyer. Atlanta is giving up the most passing yards in the league. Add Josh Gordon to the mix and I see Hoyer as the better of two sh!tty options.

    Picked up Gordon in week 2 also, feeling happy about that though my Peterson pick up looks less hopefulwith todays news.
    However, what WR do you start for week 14,15,16? I have Gordon, D Thomas, J. Jones, M Evans.

    • malamoney

      malamoney says:

      @Brion: I rank them Thomas, Gordon, Jones and then Evans. But Evans is challenging Jones for 3rd place so I’d have to look at it week by week.

    I’m considering a variety of trade offers before tomorrow’s deadline. Because of the time crunch, there isn’t a ton of time for back-and-forth negotiation, so I’m trying to make opening offers that will be appealing to the other team (while helping me improve my lineup). In general, I’m trying to convert my RB depth into studs, but it’s complicated by the fact that several of my RBs (Gio/Hill, Gray, Mathews) have somewhat ambiguous trade values at this point and the deadline will come before we get much more clarity.

    Do any of the below trades seem like good offers (both advantageous, and reasonable) in a 12-team, non-ppr league? Thanks!
    1) Give Ryan, Mathews, and Hopkins for Peyton
    2) Give Ryan, Gray, and Hopkins for Peyton
    3) Give Bernard and Hill for Foster
    4) Give Bernard, Hill, and Hopkins for McCoy and Hilton

    QB: Ryan
    RB: Charles, L. Bell, Bernard, Hill, Mathews, Gray
    WR: Calvin, Dez, Hopkins, Andre Johnson
    TE: Olsen, Donnell

      @friar: In every trade you listed I would want the right side.

      1) Unless the Peyton owner is hurting at RB and WR then there is no way he gives up Peyton
      2) Same a #1
      3) If Foster misses this week too you might have a shot at this one. But if they are all healthy I take Foster 10 out of 10 times here
      4) I want McCoy over Benard and Hill and I want Hilton over Hopkins

    Start a johnson, k Allen or Sanu at WR3, non ppr..

    Also do you like Ingram at RB2 & R Jennings at flex when I have Mathews & McKinnon on my bench?

    • malamoney

      malamoney says:

      @Nick: Allen and yes.

      • Nick says:
        (link)

        @malamoney: 1 vote Allen, 1 vote Andre Johnson.

        Fantasy Pros has Andre at 60%/40% over Keenan…which means more fantasy experts rank Andre higher than Keenan…hmm…

        • malamoney

          malamoney says:
          (link)

          @Nick: Well this fantasy “expert” is going with the 40 percenters.

          • Nick says:

            @malamoney: fair enough. Sky went Sanu, you went Allen & Jay went Andre Johnson..ugh!
