Josh Gordon, who was picked up from waivers by the Seattle Seahawks after getting released by the Patriots, has passed his physical according to The Seahawks Wire’s Andy Patton. He will not play in Week 9 against the Buccaneers, but he should be ready to go for Monday Night Football when Seattle takes on division rival, the San Francisco 49ers.
Fantasy football analysis: Seahawks wide receivers
Josh Gordon may not be the same player he was when he took over the league in 2013, but Gordon continued to make plays with the Patriots that show that he is still a starting receiver in this league.
With Gordon in the mix, Seattle’s starting wide receivers will be D.K. Metcalf and Gordon on the outside with Tyler Lockett in the slot. That’s a formidable group, especially for a team that instead run the ball than throw it.
Lockett will remain the top receiver while Gordon and Metcalf will roam the sidelines, likely making inconsistent splash plays. As usual, the Seahawks receiving opportunities will only see a boost when opposing teams get out to quick leads, but they will also remain efficient with Wilson throwing them the ball.
D.K. Metcalf stands to see the most significant reduction in targets with Gordon in the fold, but his touchdown upside should remain good while Jaron Brown and David Moore lose their fringe value.
