UPDATE: Josh Gordon is ACTIVE
The Seattle Seahawks face the San Francisco 49ers in Week 10 on Monday Night Football, and there is a good chance wide receiver Josh Gordon will make his debut. Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll said as much when team wrapped up their practice week on Saturday. He would not commit to it, but went with a coy “good chance.”
The Seahawks claimed Gordon off the waiver wire a week ago Friday, after the New England Patriots waived him off injured reserve. Gordon was dealing with a knee injury that was expected to be cleared up in short order. Gordon passed his Seahawks physical that weekend but did not play that Sunday against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
He joined the team on the practice field for Week 10, but showed up on the practice participation report with an ankle injury. He was listed as limited on Thursday and Friday, and then a full participant on Friday. He was not included on the final injury report, suggesting he’s healthy enough to go.
Fantasy football analysis: Seahawks wide receivers
Tyler Lockett is a solid start in all leagues in Week 10, while DK Metcalf is better suited in standard leagues. Gordon is someone fantasy owners should sit for this week and see how he fits into the offense. If you are counting on him, then go ahead and roll him out if he’s active, but lower your expectations.
