Fantasy Tip: Cameron could very well sit again this week, once again paving the way for Gary Barnidge and Jim Dray to take over tight end duties. Neither is worth starting, however.

Fantasy Tip: Gordon ($6,900, 13.8%) will still make his long-awaited season debut this weekend. He has a tasty matchup facing the Atlanta Falcons, who are one of five defenses to give up 1,900 or more yards to opposing wide receivers.

Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon was amped up and excited to take part in his first practice with the team this year Wednesday, Nov. 19, but QB Brian Hoyer cautioned that Gordon may need some time to acclimate to offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan's new offense. "It's not so much the physical aspect as knowing the plays, the heat of the battle," said Hoyer. "We do a lot of no-huddle stuff. Obviously, we're working with him on that." Hoyer mentioned that last year's offense was more set on getting the ball downfield, and he said he's never been one to force the ball to one specific player.
Fantasy Tip: Don't expect too much from Gordon ($6,900) in his first game back, although the matchup against the Atlanta Falcons is very tempting. It could be a boom or bust day for Cleveland's most talented offensive weapon.

Fantasy Tip: Remember, Gordon ($6,900) hasn't practiced with the team all year, so he's working himself back into peak football shape. Still, he'll be suiting up for his first game of the season this weekend against the Atlanta Falcons, and the beautiful matchup will make it hard for you to keep him out of FantasyScore lineups right off the bat.

Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon is expected to be limited in Week 12 because it will be his first game of the season, and the team does not want to rush him into the offense, according to head coach Mike Pettine. Atlanta Falcons head coach Mike Smith said he believes Gordon will have a significant role in the game because of his ability to make plays.
Fantasy Tip: It is not known how much playing time Gordon will receive during the game, but he likely will receive plenty of targets when he is on the field. Gordon has an expensive price tag of $6,900 on FantasyScore but has a good matchup against the Atlanta Falcons.

Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon (non-injury) practiced on a limited basis Wednesday, Nov. 19. Gordon looked happy and was in great shape, and he caught passes from the quarterbacks in the portion that was open to the media. Head coach Mike Pettine indicated that Gordon will be limited throughout the week. "The trap to fall into is, 'Hey, he's back and let's just go ahead and throw him out there for a bunch of plays.' There's certainly danger inherent in doing that and we have to be smart with how we do it and have a plan to progress through the week," Pettine said. Pettine also cautioned that Gordon isn't back to full football shape, and it'll take him some time to learn a new offense.
Fantasy Tip: Gordon will cost $6,900 at FantasyScore this weekend against the Atlanta Falcons. The matchup is a good one if you trust that Gordon will be a big part of the offense immediately. It's certainly tempting after how Gordon came back from his suspension last year to dominate right off the bat.

Cleveland Browns S Johnson Bademosi (concussion), LB Karlos Dansby (knee), WR Marlon Moore (hamstring), DT Ahtyba Rubin (knee), LB Jabaal Sheard (foot) and OT Joe Thomas (non-injury) didn't practice Wednesday, Nov. 19. DE Desmond Bryant (wrist) and LB Barkevious Mingo (shoulder) practiced in full.

Cleveland Browns RB Isaiah Crowell doesn't have a fumbling problem, according to head coach Mike Pettine. "I think if we get his fundamentals cleaned up [he'll be OK]. How he holds the ball is not an issue," Pettine said.
Fantasy Tip: Crowell is still Cleveland's starting running back, with Terrance West splitting time and Ben Tate now out of town. Crowell ($5,300, 10.6%) has a tremendous matchup against the Atlanta Falcons in Week 12. Atlanta is tied for a league-high 12 rushing touchdowns allowed to the position.

Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon has big plans in his return to game action in Week 12. Gordon told reporter Nate Burleson that he plans to tear up the league when he returns. "He told me: 'Starting on practice this Wednesday, I'm going to outwork everybody on the field,'" Burleson said Tuesday. "(He said) 'I'm going to try to evoke a pride in Cleveland that can hopefully lead us to the playoffs.' He's excited about coming back."
Fantasy Tip: Gordon could have a huge impact on your fantasy team this weekend with a favorable match up against the Atlanta Falcons. Gordon will cost $6,900 (13.8% of cap) in FantasyScore this week.

Fantasy Tip: It looks like Cameron may miss another week because of his concussion, but owners will need to see if he is able to practice at any point this week. Gary Barnidge and Jim Dray likely would continue to work at tight end, but neither should be used by owners on FantasyScore even though they only costs $3,000 each.
