Many will want to move on from Gordon after his two-catch, 19-yard performance against the Dolphins, but you shouldn't be one of them. He was second to only Brown in targets and saw a whole lot of Xavien Howard in that game. Now that opponents have seen Brown play, he's going to get the No. 1 treatment from opposing defenses. Fortunately, the Jets don't have a true No. 1 cornerback. In fact, they may not have a cornerback who'd be starting on most rosters. If the alignment remains the same, Gordon will see a lot of Darryl Roberts in coverage. He's a former seventh-round pick who's never seen more than 53 targets in a single season. Over the last 18 games with the Jets, he's allowed five touchdowns on just 65 targets in coverage. Gordon won't be nearly as consistent with Brown on the field, but he's going to have some big weeks. This could/should be one of them. Keep him in lineups as a high-upside WR3 who makes for a great tournament option.

Josh Gordon leads Patriots in targets in Week 3 win

Josh Gordon rushed once for one yard and caught six of his 11 targets for 83 yards in the Patriots' Week 3 win over the Jets.

Fantasy Impact

Gordon was the team leader in targets in the first game after releasing Antonio Brown. With the target share now more consolidated. Gordon's value returns to Week 1 levels, making him a strong start on a weekly basis. Gordon could draw a shadow in Week 4 from Tre'Davious White, so be prepared for a down week if you start him.
