From the upgrade/downgrade report (Mon Oct 15): Gordon's snaps and targets went way up in Week 6. He didn't have a big game, but Gordon drew a pass interference at the goal line and got some 50/50 downfield shots that are his forte. He's at least in boom/bust WR3/Flex range now, but his value still has a lot of room to grow.

Recent Game Summaries

2018 Week 5 vs IND (4 / 2 / 50 / 1 rec)

Though he was once again on a limited snap count, Gordon made the most of it, catching Tom Brady's 500 touchdown pass. The ball was a prayer deep shot into the end zone, and Gordon managed to snag it between two defenders in what surely reminded viewers of a Brady-Moss connection. It showed good trust in Gordon, who should continue to work his way to a larger role.

2018 Week 4 vs MIA (2 / 2 / 32 / 0 rec)

Gordon was clearly on a snap count, but made two grabs and a couple key blocks as he earns Tom Brady's trust. The pitch count was likely due to a short upcoming week and monitoring his hamstring, but he came out unscathed and did what he needed to do. His role should continue to grow.

2018 Week 1 vs PIT (3 / 1 / 17 / 1 rec)

Gordon was rumored to be in on roughly only 20 snaps in Week 1, but he wound up playing on 78% of the offensive snaps (69-of-89). That being said, he was not used extensively, seeing just three targets. Gordon was able to get open frequently against one-on-one coverage but quarterback Tyrod Taylor preferred the short and intermediate passes to Jarvis Landry, David Njoku, and Duke Johnson. Gordon did manage to make his presence felt, turning his only catch into a 17-yard touchdown. Taylor threw the ball to the outside and Gordon went up over the defender to secure the catch right at the goal line. He had another deep end zone target in the fourth quarter but he was well-covered by cornerback Joe Haden. Gordon was the intended target on Taylor's fourth quarter interception but the pass was underthrown. The two didn't get much time to work together in the preseason with Gordon away from the team. Hopefully Gordon and Taylor develop more chemistry as the season goes on.
