Browns | Terrelle Pryor no fluke

Sun, 21 Aug 2016 18:26:22 -0700

Cleveland Browns WR Terrelle Pryor will continue to make big plays and score touchdowns during the regular season, according to beat writer Mary Kay Cabot, who noted Pryor beat Pro Bowl CB Desmond Trufant for a 50-yard against the Atlanta Falcons in the preseason.

Fantasy Tip: Pryor is still raw, but his size and speed make him great late-round pick. He will probably be a boom-or-bust option in the early weeks, but he should only improve as the year goes on.

Falcons | Atlanta expects heavy dose of Josh Gordon

Tue, 18 Nov 2014 09:32:14 -0800

Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon will make his season debut against the Atlanta Falcons in Week 12, and Falcons head coach Mike Smith doesn't expect the Browns to ease their best receiver back in. "Absolutely I do," Smith said. "They've stated that they want to get him out on the field as quickly as possible. And he's a game-changer. He's a guy that with the ball in his hands, he can make plays. So we're anticipating that we're going to get a full dose of him this week." Gordon had a league-leading 1,646 yards and nine touchdowns in 14 games in 2014. Smith said they aren't afraid to put CB Desmond Trufant, their best cornerback, in a shadow role on Gordon.

Fantasy Tip: Gordon could be an immediate boost to your fantasy club if you've been stashing him. He could also be an immediate asset to FantasyScore lineups against a Falcons squad that has been generous to wide receivers, especially ones with Gordon's ability.
