Browns | Josh Gordon decision not imminent

Fri, 22 Jul 2016 06:15:26 -0700

Updating previous reports, Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon has no timetable for a decision on his potential reinstatement, but one source said it isn't expected for at least six weeks.

Fantasy Tip: That would take us very close to the start of the season. Even then, there's no guarantee he would be able to play and contribute immediately. Gordon has WR1 talent, but with the dearth of talent at the position in fantasy, taking him as anything more than a WR3 with a WR4 that has significant upside isn't a shrewd move.

Browns | Josh Gordon meets with commish

Thu, 21 Jul 2016 09:54:26 -0700

Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon met with commissioner Roger Goodell Wednesday, July 20, regarding his possible return to football, according to sources. Gordon can reapply for reinstatement Aug. 1.

Fantasy Tip: There's still a lot to be determined with Gordon, including how many games he'd have to miss before rejoining the Browns. Stay tuned, but Gordon has elite potential at his position, and we've seen him put up WR1 numbers before with a less-than-ideal situation at quarterback in Cleveland.

Browns | Cleveland would welcome Josh Gordon

Tue, 19 Jul 2016 19:01:58 -0700

Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon would be welcomed back by the team if he is reinstated after eligible to apply Aug. 1, according to beat writer Mary Kay Cabot. Head coach Hue Jackson has said everyone will begin with a clean slate and that includes Gordon.

Fantasy Tip: If Gordon is able to return, he could be a tremendous fantasy asset. It's uncertain if and when he'll be reinstated, and even when he is it remains to be seen whether he can stay clean or not. He is the definition of a high-risk, high-reward pick.

Browns | Jim Brown talks Josh Gordon's progress

Thu, 02 Jun 2016 12:16:00 -0700

Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon has received help for his off-field issues, according to team official Jim Brown. "His way of expressing himself, the responsibility he was taking made me feel really very motivated about his chance of getting back,'' Brown said.

Fantasy Tip: Gordon can apply to be reinstated from his indefinite suspension Aug. 1, so he remains a viable stash candidate in keeper/dynasty leagues. You'll want to keep your expectations in check, and there are no guarantees Gordon will even be reinstated, but there is plenty of fantasy upside.

Browns | Josh Gordon phased out in Cleveland?

Wed, 11 May 2016 06:56:13 -0700

Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon may not have a roster spot to return to if he's reinstated after the team drafted four wide receivers in the 2016 NFL Draft. The new regime in the front office has also said that high-character players were something they stressed in the draft.

Fantasy Tip: Gordon is supremely talented, but he has missed 27 of the last 32 games due to suspension. If he's let go, he's sure to find another suitor and be a WR2 option in fantasy with serious risk.

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.
