Browns | Josh Gordon to start camp on NFI list

Tue, 26 Jul 2016 13:56:21 -0700

Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon (quadriceps) will begin training camp on the Non-Football Injury list. He is working out on his own and is expected to miss a couple of weeks.

Fantasy Tip: Gordon has plenty of time to recover and get back into the swings of things, especially considering his four-game suspension. If he doesn't suffer any setbacks with the quad injury, the safe bet will be to look at him in the WR3 range.

Browns | Josh Gordon being reinstated

Mon, 25 Jul 2016 11:03:30 -0700

Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon is being reinstated by the NFL conditionally, according to a source. He will be suspended for the first four games of the season.

Fantasy Tip: Gordon is an elite fantasy receiver when he's on the field. The problem is he's played in only 19 games since 2013 and was suspended all of 2015. He did total 1,646 yards on 87 catches in '13, though, so he certainly has high-end potential. However, don't overvalue Gordon, since he hasn't played in forever and will be in a new system with a new QB. Take him for upside as a WR3.

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.

Wed, 23 Mar 2016 08:21:03 -0700

Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon's reinstatement issue hasn't been decided upon, according to commissioner Roger Goodell. Goodell said he'll seek an update next week.

Fantasy Tip: Keep your eye on this situation as Gordon has WR1 talent.

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.

Browns | Josh Gordon on track to return

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.

Browns | Josh Gordon has a chance to play?

Sat, 13 Feb 2016 16:51:32 -0800

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.

Browns | Josh Gordon must convince commissioner

Sat, 06 Feb 2016 17:48:07 -0800

Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon must convince NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell he won't slip up again in the future in order to be reinstated. "Our No. 1 issue here is to prevent these things from happening," Goodell said Friday, Feb. 5. "I'm hopeful that Josh understands that he's going to have to conduct himself differently going forward to be a member of the NFL and to be representing the Cleveland Browns, or any team in the NFL."

Fantasy Tip: Gordon has WR1 upside, but it remains to be seen if he will be reinstated and when a decision will be made. Until his fate is decided, he is a late-round flier in drafts.

Browns | Josh Gordon confident in a return

Sat, 06 Feb 2016 10:35:36 -0800

Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon is confident that he has met the terms of his indefinite suspension in order to be reinstated, according to a source. If Gordon is reinstated, he would revert back to Stage 3 of the NFL's substance abuse policy. He would receive random testing and would still be one more incident away from another indefinite suspension.

Fantasy Tip: If reinstated, Gordon would immediately supplant Travis Benjamin as the Browns' No. 1 wide receiver. Gordon, Benjamin and TE Gary Barnidge would make for a nice pass-catching threesome in Cleveland, but the quarterback situation is currently less than ideal. There's no guarantee that Gordon receives his reinstatement, so continue to track his status throughout the offseason.

Browns | Josh Gordon vows to change

Mon, 01 Feb 2016 13:27:24 -0800

Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon said he plans to "disassociate" himself from those that could be contributing to keeping him out of the NFL. Gordon has been suspended a year for multiple violations of the league's substance abuse policy, and he recently applied for reinstatement. NFL commissioner Roger Goodell will make a decision within 60 days of Gordon's application.

Fantasy Tip: It's hard not to envision Cleveland's new management not being on board with Gordon shaping up to play for this football team. He's still only 25 and clearly has the tools to be an elite receiver if he can get his head straight. There's obviously risk involved, but if Gordon is reinstated for next season, he's likely to be a early-round draft pick.

Browns | Cleveland not rushing Manziel decision

Thu, 21 Jan 2016 10:24:07 -0800

The Cleveland Browns are in "no panic" to make a quick decision on the future of QB Johnny Manziel, according to new vice president of football operations Sashi Brown. The Browns will also assess the future of suspended WR Josh Gordon once they know if he'll be reinstated by commissioner Roger Goodell.

Fantasy Tip: The overriding belief is that Manziel has no future in Cleveland, and new head coach Hue Jackson isn't believed to be high on him. Time will tell, but Manziel has the physical traits to be successful in the NFL. He could find more success with another organization, and the Dallas Cowboys are rumored to be a possible destination if he becomes available.

Browns | Josh Gordon applies for reinstatement

Wed, 20 Jan 2016 05:10:27 -0800

Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon has applied for reinstatement to the league, confirmed a source with knowledge of the process who requested anonymity because of the league's confidentiality rules. Gordon's fate will be known within 60 days of the receipt of his application, per rules of the reinstatement process. He is under the Browns' control for 2016. If reinstated, Gordon can become a restricted free-agent in 2017.

Fantasy Tip: It's somewhat hard to believe, but he just turns 25 in April. Gordon could be a WR1 in fantasy if reinstated, and it sounds like they're trying to shore up the locker room around him.

Browns | Josh Gordon doing well

Wed, 16 Dec 2015 19:28:39 -0800

Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon is eligible to apply for reinstatement Feb. 3, a year after his indefinite drug ban was announced by the National Football League. According to sources Gordon is doing "outstanding."

Fantasy Tip: All indications are the Browns will stick with the talented, yet troubled, wide receiver. If he can return and keep his head on straight he can be one of the biggest playmakers in the league. Fantasy owners will certainly want to tread lightly next summer based on his history, however, and not draft him terribly high in seasonal leagues.

Browns | Josh Gordon not arrested again

Mon, 10 Aug 2015 14:36:28 -0700

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 Cleveland.com, 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.

Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon "has to go," according to several members of the organization. His drug suspensions and lax behavior has become a growing problem.

Fantasy Tip: Gordon seems like a story built to land in New England. Whichever team he plays for in 2015, expect him to be one of the top 10-15 receivers off the board come draft day.

Browns | Josh Gordon will be restricted free agent

Sat, 27 Dec 2014 12:28:04 -0800

Updating a previous report, Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon will be a restricted free agent following the 2015 season. He will not be an unrestricted free agent because he was not active for the required six games this season after being suspended for Week 17.

Fantasy Tip: Gordon will have all offseason to refocus his priorities. There is plenty of time for this situation to turn for the better or get even worse. Keep tabs on his status throughout the offseason as he could still be one of the top wide receivers in fantasy leagues.

Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon was suspended for the final game of the 2014 regular season Saturday, Dec. 27. Gordon only had five active games this season and now may not be eligible for unrestricted free agency when his current contract runs out after the 2015 season.

Fantasy Tip: Gordon certainly seems to be on thin ice and has not done much this year except be a headache to the Browns. His future fantasy value remains in flux. Keep tabs on this situation throughout the end of the season and during the offseason.

Browns | Josh Gordon suspended

Sat, 27 Dec 2014 10:46:34 -0800

Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon was suspended for Week 17 for violating team rules.

Fantasy Tip: Andrew Hawkins and Jordan Cameron will likely be the main beneficiaries with Gordon out. However, rookie QB Connor Shaw will be making his first career start, so it's probably best to stay away from any Browns pass-catchers.

Browns | Josh Gordon's reps limited

Sun, 07 Dec 2014 15:00:26 -0800

Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon had his reps limited in Week 14 against the Indianapolis Colts. Head coach Mike Pettine said Sunday, Dec. 7, that the staff felt he was getting too many reps, so they took him out on third downs.

Fantasy Tip: Gordon was a fantasy killer, posting just two receptions and 15 yards in the loss. He was targeted seven times. With Brian Hoyer struggling, even a talented player like Gordon isn't worth using in FantasyScore heading into Week 15 against the Cincinnati Bengals.

Browns | Josh Gordon still learning offense

Thu, 04 Dec 2014 15:35:21 -0800

Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon has 195 receiving yards in his two games this year, but his timing has been off with QB Brian Hoyer, resulting in three interceptions on passes thrown his way despite a team-high 29 targets in the last two weeks. Gordon has said that it is taking time to understand offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan's system and terminology. "You have to master your offense that we're running here," Gordon said. "When you do that, you think a lot less and you move a lot faster. That's really the point I'm trying to get to. I'd like for it to be second nature, for me not to even think about it. I can hear half the play in the huddle and know what to do. But it's not like that right now."

Fantasy Tip: Gordon ($7,600) is getting the targets, and that's all that really matters for fantasy football. On paper, the Indianapolis Colts have been impressive holding down receivers this year, but that shouldn't stop you from playing Gordon at FantasyScore, especially if Vontae Davis is unable to play.

Browns | Josh Gordon strong in debut

Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon posted eight receptions for 120 yards in his regular season debut in Week 12 against the Atlanta Falcons. He was targeted a game-high 16 times in the win.

Fantasy Tip: There were some signs of the layoff, including some route running mistakes and a play in the back of the end zone where he allowed an interception where he appeared to give up on the route. However, he also didn't have much rust, and he appears to be a must-play in FantasyScore going forward, especially when the matchup is favorable.

Fantasy Tip: Gordon should be on the field for the rest of the season and should have an impact on fantasy teams. Gordon is expected to be limited in Week 12 but can make an impact. Gordon costs $6,900 on FantasyScore, which may be too expensive for some owners.
