Browns | Josh Gordon's agent confident in return

Fri, 15 Apr 2016 18:19:46 -0700

Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon's agent, Drew Rosenhaus, said he is confident that Gordon will play in the NFL this year.

Fantasy Tip: It's not like Rosenhaus was going to say anything to the contrary, and as long as Gordon's status remains in limbo, he is a complete roll-of-the-dice pick.

Browns | Josh Gordon can reapply in August

Wed, 13 Apr 2016 13:37:15 -0700

Updating a previous report, Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon will be able to reapply for reinstatement Aug. 1, according to a source. Gordon's application for reinstatement was denied Tuesday, April 12.

Fantasy Tip: Gordon could still be reinstated and join the Browns this season. For now, though, Andrew Hawkins, Brian Hartline and Taylor Gabriel will serve as Robert Griffin III's primary targets. Terrelle Pryor is also an intriguing option. None of them should be viewed as viable starting fantasy wide receivers.

Browns | Josh Gordon's petition denied

Tue, 12 Apr 2016 14:04:36 -0700

Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon's petition for reinstatement from his indefinite drug ban was denied by the NFL, according to a source. Gordon will be able to apply for reinstatement later in the year.

Fantasy Tip: This isn't a big surprise after Gordon failed another drug test last month. For the time being, the Browns are now stuck with Andrew Hawkins, Brian Hartline and Taylor Gabriel as their top wide receivers, although Terrelle Pryor has intriguing upside. Hartline is better suited for standard scoring leagues while Hawkins has more value in PPR formats, but none of Cleveland's receivers are really worth starting. The denial of Gordon also lessens the fantasy value of Robert Griffin III, who is safely in backup fantasy quarterback territory.

Browns | Josh Gordon decision delayed

Tue, 12 Apr 2016 06:22:56 -0700

Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon's potential reinstatement decision has been delayed until the NFL feels more comfortable. He has 60 to 90 days to steer clear of red flags, according to a league source.

Fantasy Tip: This is actually good news as it sounds like he could be reinstated for the 2016 season if he doesn't have any issues for the next two or three months. He'll be a WR2 consideration if he is reinstated with obvious risks and rewards.

Browns | Josh Gordon fails another test

Mon, 11 Apr 2016 15:54:54 -0700

Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon failed another drug test last month when the test showed a diluted sample and traces of marijuana, according to sources. Gordon still has a chance to be reinstated since NFL commissioner Roger Goodell can rule on his status at any time.

Fantasy Tip: Gordon's fantasy value will depend on if he will be able to play in 2016. He should be considered a starter in all leagues if he is allowed to play because of his skills. Gordon is a risky option for now because of his uncertain status.

Browns | Cleveland not counting on Josh Gordon

Mon, 21 Mar 2016 10:38:48 -0700

Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon has applied for reinstatement, but the NFL has stated that they will rule on Gordon's status when appropriate. The Browns are not counting on Gordon for the 2016 season because they do not know when he will be reinstated and are not sure of his mental status at this point.

Fantasy Tip: Owners will need to keep an eye on the situation during the offseason to see if Gordon will be reinstated before the 2016 season. Gordon plays well when he is on the field and could be a middle-round option if he is able to play next season.

Browns | Josh Gordon has worked down weight

Mon, 29 Feb 2016 20:28:53 -0800

Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon added approximately 30 pounds more than his playing weight, according to S Donte Whitner, but he said the receiver has whipped himself back into shape. Gordon has applied for reinstatement into the NFL and is awaiting word from NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell.

Fantasy Tip: Gordon can be a tremendous fantasy asset when he is on the field, and he is a bit of an X factor going into 2016. If he can return to his 2013 form when he had 87 receptions, 1,646 yards and nine touchdowns, he would obviously be an early-round fantasy selection. But you simply cannot risk it early on draft day with his checkered history. He had just 24 grabs before running aground in 2014, and missed the entire 2015 season, so it's been a while since we've seen 'good' Gordon.

Thu, 25 Feb 2016 06:41:55 -0800

Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon is on the right path, and signs are pointing towards him being reinstated, according to executive vice president Sashi Brown. Brown also said there's a spot on the roster for Gordon "if he's doing the right things."

Fantasy Tip: Gordon has WR1 talent in fantasy and is worth a later selection if he's indeed reinstated.

Updating an ongoing story, Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon has a chance to return in 2016 as ESPNCleveland.com's Tony Grossi said that he thinks Gordon will play at some point next season

Fantasy Tip: Gordon will be a late-round flyer until there is more leaning towards him being reinstated. He has WR1 talent and is worth the later pick.
