Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon didn't get off to a good start by getting suspended the first two games of the season for violating the NFL's drug policy. He drew the ire of Cleveland fans by hanging out too much with public enemy No. 1 in LeBron James in the offseason. It was publicly said that Gordon was on a short leash' and had one last opportunity with the team. When RB Trent Richardson was traded to the Colts, it was assumed Gordon was next as CEO Joe Banner had said he wasn't sure Gordon was worth the second round pick the team used on him. With all that swirling around his head, Gordon returned Sunday, and like a stock that had dropped off the charts on the market, his value suddenly shot sky high with a 10 catch, 146 yard and a touchdown performance against the Vikings.

Josh Gordon led the league in targets this week and that trend could continue (Week 3 touches and targets)

The final numbers tell one part of the story, but fantasy football is a game of volume. When predicting performance touches and targets on a weekly basis play as big a role as the name on the back of the jersey.

Cleveland Browns Can Turn Attention to Improving the Running Game

Now that the Cleveland Browns have enjoyed the warm glow of their first victory, it’s time for them to improve their running game. Brian Hoyer wasn’t perfect at quarterback, but since he threw three touchdowns in the 31-27 victory at Minnesota, the Browns can examine the fact that their running backs didn’t combine for 50 yards. Nobody can blame Willis McGahee for gaining nine...

Jim Brown: Trent Richardson trade was a ‘brilliant move’ for Browns

For whatever reason, Cleveland Browns legend Jim Brown was never a fan of Trent Richardson. Brown disagreed with the team’s decision to use the No. 3 overall pick on Richardson in last year’s draft, saying that he felt the former Alabama star is “ordinary” and was simply the best back in a class that was […]

The Browns could give the Bengals a run for their money with Brian Hoyer at the helm

The Cleveland Browns can climb back to .500 with a win against their intrastate rival, the Cincinnati Bengals. Two weeks ago, the Browns wouldn’t have stood a chance against the Bengals, but adding a passing game, even if it is erratic, can change the odds of any outcome. Brian Hoyer wasn’t spectacular in the Browns’ win last weekend, but he did something that Brandon Weeden...
