These guys have been mentioned in other posts. Their team has a lot of buzz because of Hardknocks and the QB position...but they're still the Browns. Who would you take if you're drafting a Brown this year? Why? What do you think their floor and ceiling is?
For me its real simple but others don't want to take the risk. Its Josh Gordon.
I get that hes only played like 6 games out of the last 48...but i really believe were finally going to see him play a full season. He knows hes on his last straw and I really believe hes taking care of himself. So lets assume he does play...
1 - He is a Calvin Johnson or T.O...the guy is a beast.
2 - Opportunity - The Browns traded Coleman and have now lost Callaway as their #3. Assuming they don't make any additions to the unit, hes in for a major target share. He is splitting with someone who will no doubt take looks away from him, but will also reward by extending so many more possessions. Landry is the best #2 that Gordon has ever played with.
3 - The defense's strength of schedule is ranked DEAD LAST. They're going to be playing behind in every game (whats new?)
4 - He has Landry as a role model and a guy to fire him up. Landry is changing the culture. He will inspire and work with Gordon to be a better man not just a better player.
5 - LAST but NOT LEAST!!! His price. In my auction league he is HALF the cost of a top-tier WR, but could be the #1 WR in the league.
Again, assuming he DOES play ...how could you not take Gordon? He gives you 1600 yard / 12+ TD upside.
