Josh Gordon remains nondescript in Seahawks offense

The Seahawks spread the wealth in Week 12. We break down Josh Gordon’s fantasy football performance and look ahead to Week 13.

Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Josh Gordon is getting work in the offense, but for the second straight week, he saw limited targets. In his debut two weeks ago against the San Francisco 49ers, Gordon was targeted twice and had two catches for 27 yards. This week against the Philadelphia Eagles, he was again targeted twice and had one catch for ten yards.

This was an odd game for the passing game. Wilson attempted 25 passes and split them pretty evenly among all his pass catchers. Wide receiver DK Metcalf led the team with six targets, grabbing three receptions for 35 yards. Running back Chris Carson and tight end Jacob Hollister were tied with four receptions. Carson caught all four for 31 yards while Hollister caught two for 22 yards.

Gordon joined Tyler Lockett, David Moore, and Malik Turner in each getting two targets in the passing game. It’s hard to tell whether or not Gordon will develop any kind of significant role in the Seahawks offense. This is an offense that is built around the ground game. I could see Gordon improving with an offseason, but for these remaining five weeks, it’s hard to see Gordon generating much in the way of consistent fantasy value.

Next week, the Seahawks host the Minnesota Vikings. It’s a tough defensive matchup, so Gordon should be avoided once again in traditional fantasy leagues and DFS contests.
