Fantasy MasterpiecesWeek 13

Josh Gordon Cle - WR 2013 vs. Jacksonville 10 catches, 261 yards, 2 touchdowns Gordon’s best game en route to being the top fantasy receiver in ’13 came in Week 13, when he lit up the Jaguars secondary for 261 yards and two scores.

It amounted to the third-best Week 13 fantasy output by a receiver since the AFL/NFL merger, but the most receiving yards. This outing contributed to a historic run for Gordon (from Weeks 11-14) in which he posted at least 125 receiving yards and a TD in four straight games. In fact, he owns NFL records in that stretch for most receiving yards over a two-, three- and four-game stretch, including becoming the first player to record 200-plus receiving yards in back-to-back weeks (Weeks 12-13)
Each week of the season we will bring you the top fantasy football performances of the past 10+ years for that week.
