Do not be tempted by Josh Gordon’s return
Don’t do it. We all know you’re going to be tempted, however don’t. Simply say no. Don’t choose up Josh Gordon.
The troubled Seahawks receiver was given clearance to return to motion the ultimate two weeks of the NFL season. He had been suspended since Week 15 of final season for PEDs. He’s eligible to return in Week 16 this season.
This ought to be apparent, however we really feel like we should state it anyway. First, he hasn’t performed all season. He performed simply 5 video games for Seattle final season, and caught simply seven passes. He has totaled — totaled — simply 110 catches since 2014. That encompasses yearly since his lone fantasy standout season in 2013.
Plus, you’ll get him for precisely one recreation. Why waste a roster spot on somebody who hasn’t produced in additional than six seasons? And play him in fantasy championship week? In his first recreation again?
No approach, no how. Simply don’t do it.
However Gordon isn’t the one lure to keep away from as we head into the final week of the fantasy common season. There are others who may even tempt you to make use of them this week.
Don’t play Giovani Bernard. With the quarterback issues in Cincinnati, it makes it too straightforward for groups to concentrate on the run. Although Samaje Perine didn’t have a carry final week, we’re not satisfied he has disappeared for good. He received nearly equal work and outperformed Bernard the earlier three video games. Don’t be shocked if he’s again within the combine Sunday, reducing into Bernard’s touches. Simply don’t do it.
Even when Todd Gurley is within the Falcons’ lineup Sunday, don’t put him in your fantasy lineup. The Saints are the stingiest protection in opposition to fantasy working backs. If Gurley doesn’t rating, he’s a drag in your fantasy crew, failing to achieve double-digit PPR output this season when he does rating. He has only one 100-yard recreation all 12 months. The Saints have allowed a league-low 5 dashing TDs all season. Simply don’t do it.
Don’t bench Jonathan Taylor. The rookie Colts RB has given us matches all season. We anticipated a sluggish rise, however Marlon Mack received damage and Taylor was thrust into motion early. As quickly as we began to get comfortable, his manufacturing took a nosedive, and Jordan Wilkins started reducing into his work.
But, Taylor re-established his position with a powerful recreation two weeks in the past in opposition to a poor Packers protection. He missed final week due to shut contact with COVID, however didn’t have the virus himself — so there is no such thing as a purpose to worry any slowdown. And he will get to face a comfortable Texans run protection. Count on he’ll get the lion’s share of touches amongst Colts RBs. Don’t bench him. Simply don’t do it.
Don’t gamble on a Patriots vast receiver. New England has bother passing with Cam Newton at QB, and significantly Damiere Byrd and N’Keal Harry have powerful matchups with Chargers defensive backs. Simply don’t do it.
