Browns | Cleveland in contact with Josh Gordon

Wed, 24 Jun 2015 14:34:36 -0700

Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon has been in contact with an official from the team this offseason, according to a source. Gordon is serving a one-year suspension for multiple violations of the NFL's drug and alcohol policy but is allowed to be in contact with a front office member.

Fantasy Tip: Gordon will not play in the 2015 season because of the suspension, so owners should avoid him in all leagues. Gordon could be reinstated next season and may be a fantasy option at that point.

Browns | Josh Gordon's teammates didn't know rules

Tue, 21 Apr 2015 18:15:43 -0700

Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon's latest suspension came as a surprise to his teammates, as they didn't know he couldn't drink alcohol, according to CB Joe Haden, Tuesday, April 21. "Everybody's 21. We're going to Vegas on a vacation. We know he can't do certain things, but we had no idea he couldn't have a drink. If I knew he couldn't have a drink, everybody would have tried to it wouldn't have been that. But Josh Gordon is a grown man and sometimes you have to know what decisions you make, but nobody was aware that he couldn't drink," Haden said. Gordon is suspended for a minimum of one full season.

Browns | NFLPA files grievance for Josh Gordon

Tue, 17 Feb 2015 07:34:06 -0800

Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon's one-game suspension late last season prompted the NFLPA to file a non-injury grievance on his behalf Tuesday, Feb. 17.

Fantasy Tip: Gordon is facing a one-year ban for testing positive for alcohol, and his fantasy status is dormant for the 2015 season. He still has dynasty league value due to his tremendous talent, but he's facing an uphill battle to return to the league.

Eagles | Philly rejected trade for Josh Gordon

Mon, 16 Feb 2015 15:27:42 -0800

Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon was offered to the Philadelphia Eagles at the start of the 2013 season, but the Eagles did not want to trade QB Nick Foles for Gordon, according to a source. The Eagles were concerned about Gordon's two-game suspension, while the Browns wanted Foles to be their starting quarterback.

Fantasy Tip: Gordon struggled in the five games he played in this past season after he served his suspension and is in danger of missing the entire 2015 season since he tested positive for alcohol. Owners should monitor Gordon's status during the offseason but should not count on him as a top fantasy receiver. Foles likely will have to compete for the starting job during training camp and should not be seen as a No. 1 fantasy quarterback even if he wins the job.

Browns | Jimmy Haslam supports Josh Gordon

Thu, 12 Feb 2015 11:35:09 -0800

Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon received support from team owner Jimmy Haslam, in an interview with, Haslam was critical of Gordon's off-field behavior and hopes Gordon can get proper help during his suspension. When asked if the Browns would cut Gordon, Haslam said they have a year to decide, and the decision would be made "at the proper time."

Fantasy Tip: Provided Gordon is eligible to play in 2016, his physical talent alone keeps in the conversation. Way too much can happen between now and then to properly assess his fantasy value. He is the classic example of a risk-reward draft pick when that time comes.

Browns | Cleveland plans to pursue impact WR

Tue, 03 Feb 2015 18:51:09 -0800

Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon "no longer factors into any plans," and the team plans to pursue an impact wide receiver via the draft, trade or free agency, according to a league source.

Fantasy Tip: Gordon should be crossed off all draft boards in 2015, and any guy they actually add will have some shaky value because of the uncertainty at the quarterback position in Cleveland.

Browns | Josh Gordon suspended by league

Tue, 03 Feb 2015 15:16:47 -0800

Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon has been suspended without pay for at least a year for violating the league's Policy and Program for Substances of Abuse. Gordon's suspension commences immediately.

Fantasy Tip: You can officially cross Gordon off your draft board for the 2015 season. When he's not having off-field troubles, Gordon is an elite fantasy football wide receiver, as he proved in 2013. It remains to be seen if Gordon will even play football again considering his extensive history of troublemaking.

Browns | Josh Gordon unlikely to win an appeal

Mon, 26 Jan 2015 11:04:40 -0800

Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon is in Stage 3 of an alcohol program, which requires him to be tested for alcohol for a minimum of two years. His failed drug test came after the end of the 2014 season, and it's unlikely that an appeal will work to eliminate or lessen a one-year ban for the 2015 season.

Fantasy Tip: Unless anything changes as we get closer to the start of the 2015 season, prepare to avoid Gordon at all costs in your traditional fantasy football drafts this year.

Browns | Josh Gordon tested positive for alcohol

Mon, 26 Jan 2015 09:20:19 -0800

Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon tested positive for alcohol, according to sources, and his failed test will subject him to a possible one-year suspension. Gordon caught 24 passes for 303 yards in five games last year after leading the NFL with 1,646 yards in 14 games in 2013.

Fantasy Tip: Gordon is one of the special talents in the league, but his off-field demeanor is clearly getting in his way. More clarification on whether he'll be suspended for the whole year will go a long way in determining if fantasy football drafters need to completely avoid him for the 2015 season.

Browns | Josh Gordon contract affected

Sun, 25 Jan 2015 18:06:58 -0800

Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon will be under contract through the 2016 season, and he will only be a restricted free agent after that year due to his looming suspension for another failed substance test.

Fantasy Tip: For the second consecutive season, Gordon heads into the year with a giant cloud of uncertainty. Fantasy owners will want to stay away on draft day, although by then there is certain to be more clarity on his playing situation.
