Didn't seem so long ago that people were viewing Greg Little as Cleveland's future franchise receiver.  Some bad drops and Josh Gordon later and Greg Little has faded out of the fantasy limelight.  With Gordon suspended for two games and Little entering his third season, is anyone high on him?  He's a guy who has the measurables of a good receiver, just wondering if people are giving up on him too early.

For redraft purposes, are you suggesting Greg Little will have a big third year and then fall totally off the map? 82/1310/7 this year and then we never hear from him again? :lol:

I think once Roy Williams fell out of the NFL, he needed money so he had his stone hands amputated and sold them to Greg Little.

Actually not a bad guy to target with one of your last picks or in a deep league.  As the OP mentioned, he's a forgotten man in fantasy but is actually in a really good spot to succeed this season in CLE (improved offense, clear path to playing time, 3rd year WR).  Plus, Little will have at least a 2 week audition as the #1 WR in CLE, while JGordon is suspended.  If he flames out, then at least you can cut bait after week 1 or 2 for a hot FA.

I'm not sold on him, nor am I sold on his QB... it looks like a messy situation to me.  I already got burned by him last year, I'd rather sit back and let him prove himself then taking another shot with him.

Need to see more than one preseason game where he doesn't have stone hands. It can't be discouraging though. Definitely monitoring him the rest of the preseason.

I actually think he will do well all year long, this time last year he was a sleeper on most draft boards and is entering his 3rd year in the league. Wouldnt surprise me if he leads the browns in receiving.

Only thing for sure is he'll probably do better than Gordon this week. Otherwise, all bets are off for this dud.
