2014 Outlook: With Josh Gordon's questionable status and Nate Burleson's penchant for injury, Hawkins could carry his share of fantasy value either as a starter or as the Browns' primary slot receiver. That sounds great in theory, but in his breakout 2012 campaign, Hawkins' 10.5 yards per reception ranked 73rd among wide receivers. The lack of big-play ability translated to a mediocre 71 fantasy points in standard leagues in that campaign, but Hawkins did tally 8.7 points per game in a PPR environment, a total worthy of WR6 status.
2014 Outlook: Already facing a possible suspension for violating the league's substance abuse policy, Gordon's recent arrest on a DWI charge makes it more likely that he will face significant NFL discipline. Without knowing how many games, if any, he will play this season, drafting Gordon carries with it plenty of risk.
