Cleveland Browns (+3)
Josh Gordon ($6300 – WR16)
I fully believe that the Gordon hype train has completely run off the tracks and I expect him to be VERY highly owned. Now, that might not be wrong! It’s an amazing matchup as a WR1 going against the Falcons, who’ve allowed 4 TDs in the last five games to WR1s.
Andrew Hawkins ($4900 – WR35)

Brian Hoyer ($5900 – QB20)
Hoyer becomes an interesting play for the price tag. The matchup is juicy and he returns the 2013 NFL receiving leader. Also, if you subscribe to small sample size stats, the last time Hoyer played in a dome, he threw for 321 yards and 3 TDs. Want high risk, high upside? Stack Hoyer and Gordon!
