Gordon caught four of 12 targets for 81 yards in Sunday's 34-10 loss to the Titans.

EDGE Analysis

Gordon and Julian Edelman both topped 80 yards on 12 targets apiece, while the rest of New England's passing game was kept quiet. The trade acquisition is starting to look comfortable with his new team, totaling 353 yards and a touchdown on 17 catches over the past four weeks. Gordon and the Patriots will be on bye in Week 11.

Gordon does not appear on the Patriots' Week 10 injury report, Zack Cox of NESN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

This is notable, since Gordon had been limited with a hamstring issue since joining the Patriots in mid-September. Wednesday's non-listing confirms that the dislocated finger Gordon played through in this past weekend's 31-17 win over the Packers is not a concern as Sunday's contest against the Titans approaches. Now that Gordon has carved out a starting role with the Patriots that yields plenty of snaps and led to 10 targets in Week 9, he carries weekly fantasy appeal.

Gordon downplayed the dislocated finger issue he played through in Sunday's 31-17 win over the Packers, ESPN's Mike Reiss reports. "I guess it's like a freak accident, nothing too crazy," Gordon said after the game. "One of the slant routes, I think some pressure fell on it and it dislocated, so I popped it back into place a couple of times during the game. It's fine."

EDGE Analysis

Gordon was on the field for 57 of a possible 71 snaps on offense Sunday, en route to hauling in five of his 10 targets for a team-high 130 yards and a TD. Though Gordon's finger injury isn't something that should impact his Week 10 availability, the wideout is likely to continue to be listed as a limited practice participant Wednesday due to a hamstring issue that he's been managing since the Patriots traded for him in mid-September.

Gordon (hamstring) is listed as active for Sunday night's game against the Packers.

EDGE Analysis

Now that Gordon has carved out a starting role with the Patriots that entails plenty of snaps, he carries weekly fantasy appeal. Moreover, some big play opportunities could be on tap for him Sunday night, with a potential offensive shootout in the making and star tight end Rob Gronkowski (back/ankle) inactive.

Gordon (hamstring) is among the 13 players the Patriots listed as questionable for Sunday night's game against the Packers, Mike Reiss of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Patriots' Week 9 injury report is pretty robust, with two players listed as out on top of the slew of questionables. Gordon was able to practice all week -- in a limited fashion -- but there's nothing to suggest that his Week 9 status is in danger. We'll let you know if that assessment changes leading up to Sunday night's 8:20 ET kickoff. Now that Gordon has carved out a starting role with plenty of snaps, he carries weekly fantasy appeal, more so this weekend, with a potential offensive shootout on tap.

Gordon (hamstring) remained limited at practice Thursday, Mike Reiss of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Despite Gordon's continued listed limitations at practice, there's been nothing to suggest that his availability for Sunday night's game against the Packers is in any danger. The Patriots' robust injury report goes 15-deep this week, so there's a decent chance that Gordon will end up with an official "questionable" injury designation come Friday.

Gordon (hamstring) was limited at Wednesday's walk-through practice.

EDGE Analysis

Despite pre-game reports that Gordon would be disciplined for tardiness Monday night against the Bills, the wideout ended up starting and logging 84 percent of the team's snaps on offense. Moreover, Ryan Hannable of WEEI.com relays that Patriots wide receivers coach Chad O'Shea "had nothing but praise" for Gordon when quizzed about the lateness report. "Josh has done everything we've asked him to do here," O'Shea said. "He's worked very hard. He's done a great job of learning our offense, which at times can be difficult with the multiplicity of it and working with a veteran quarterback. I think he has done a great job of being a good teammate and certainly there's a lot to improve on, but he's continued to make progress and he's really done everything we've asked him to do." Despite Gordon's listed limitation Wednesday, there's nothing to suggest that his availability for Sunday night's game against the Packers is in any danger.

Gordon (hamstring) logged 64 of a possible 76 snaps on offense in Monday night's 25-6 win over the Bills, en route to catching four of his six targets for 42 yards.

EDGE Analysis

The wideout was officially listed as a starter in the contest, despite a pre-game report via Ian Rapoport of NFL Network that Gordon was expected to sit out a few series as punishment for tardiness. When asked about the report after his team's win, Gordon noted "that's going to be a question you're going to have to ask (coach Bill Belichick) about. In relation to the game, I was available, so that's a plus." We don't expect Belichick to elaborate, but we'll operate under the assumption that Gordon will handle his regular duties in this coming Sunday's game against the Packers, a matchup that has shootout potential.

Gordon (hamstring) is listed as active for Monday night's game against the Bills.

EDGE Analysis

It's no surprise that he's suiting up after practicing in limited fashion this past week. However, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports that due to some recent tardiness, Gordon is expected to be "kept off the field for several series -- about a quarter" Monday night before returning to his normal role as the Patriots' No. 2 wide receiver. That anticipated reduction in snaps represents something of a hit Gordon's Week 8 fantasy upside, but it won't necessarily stop him from having a productive outing Monday, given his play-making ability. The Patriots are evidently fine with minor discipline for the talented wideout this time around, but they may not be so tolerant if Gordon shows up late for future practices/meetings, given his off-field history.
