I don't think so. His qb is brandon weeden, not eli manning. He has only 5 receptions in those 3 games. He's a rookie.

neither, gordon got two grabs that ran all the way with it, other games he did nothing... cobb is decent, but with jennings back he won't put up numbers like he is now

I really like Gordon's raw talent and ability to get deep against single coverage. Weeden is inconsistent but his best attribute is his deep ball, which fits Gordon's skill set. I don't think Gordon will be able to keep up the insane pace from the past two weeks, but I picked him up as a stash play in multiple leagues and actually started him last week as a desperation play in a deep 14 teamer. (Boom goes the dynamite!)

I think Jennings' return will hurt James Jones a lot more than Cobb. Cobb has a unique skill set and far more reliable hands than Jones. I'm actually a bit surprised that GB hasn't lined Cobb up in the backfield more often after having success on both runs and screens from that position. The Packers are smart and Cobb creates match-up problems whenever he's on the field, I think he continues to have a nice season and like him considerably more than Gordon going forward.

I drated Cobb in a .33 ppr league that also awards 1 point per 25 return yards -- Cobb has been a standout WR3 thus far, (only two games under double digits and already two games over 20 points) in that format.

Both (Cruz & Gordon) have big play ability but the difference in QB talent throwing them the ball is too big at this point to even remotely hope Gordon goes on to put up 2012 Cruz numbers.

With that said, Gordon is a guy you absolutely want on your dyno team for 2013 and beyond. Promising WR if he keeps his head and CLE gets another QB, the latter of which I think does happen in next years draft or, Weeden actually does progress which is possible but less likely.

For future years production & upside, there are probably only 2 maybe 3 rookie WR's I'd rather have than him at this point in a dyno.

He hasn't caught more than 3 balls in a game, which means his production is entirely dependent on 1 or 2 big plays. With a weak QB and poor offense in general, I don't want to bet on that on a regular basis.

With that said, I do like him as a WR3 this week against the Colts.

Shades of Mike Wallace, Desean Jackson and Torrey Smith. I don't see why everyone is so caught up in the catches when the production is there

Right, and those guys weren't reliable fantasy options in year 1 either.
But all have progressed and become larger pieces in their respective offenses.

I like his potential long term, but right now he's still as likely to post 3 points as 13, and is a very risky option week to week.

Two interesting things about this topic:

1) Amazing how football has to be so black and white. Both the QB and the WR are rookies. Rookie performance is no guarantee of future success or failure...
2) Amazing that there are more potential fantasy players on the Browns than Cribbs

But very deserving of roster spots in any league. We seen last year the power of a rookie to rookie combo could be. Wheedon is not Dalton and Gordon far from Green but a rookie who's comfortable with a rookie will throw to who their most comfortable. Also IMO Gordon is their #1 receiver

I didn't say he doesn't belong on a roster, just that most weeks he belongs on your bench and not in your starting lineup.
This week is one of the exceptions, but I certainly wouldn't want to count on him as an every week starter.

So, with all the wk7 byes, who's rolling with this cat this week? With confidence? It's a good matchup. You can't argue with two productive games like that in a row. Weeden does have a good deepball it seems too.

As of now, I'm pluggin' him in over Alex Green @ Flex but could go either way.

As for him being this year's Victor Cruz, highly doubtful.
