Browns | Josh Gordon has high praise for receiving corps

Wed, 13 Jun 2018 05:50:16 -0700

Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon believes the Browns have the NFL's best receiving corps, he said after the team's first day of mandatory minicamp, Tuesday, June 12. "I think we're the best receiving corps in the league, in my opinion, already just based off of talent alone,'' Gordon boasted. "So, you put in the playbook and some guys that are hungry enough to go do it, and hopefully, we go out there and show and prove that. That's just my opinion, but we're not short on talent at the wide receiver position at all." This is Gordon's first offseason program since 2014.

Browns | Josh Gordon could receive extension

Sat, 09 Jun 2018 09:26:37 -0700

Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon could be the next player in line for a contract extension, in the opinion of ESPNCleveland.com's Tony Grossi. He is scheduled to make $790,001 in 2018 and will be a restricted free agent next offseason.

Fantasy Tip: Gordon returned to the field last season after a long suspension and played well in his limited time. He has a chance to be the No. 1 receiver for the Browns this season and will see a significant amount of targets. He can be at least a No. 3 receiver in most fantasy leagues in 2018.

Mon, 16 Apr 2018 06:26:20 -0700

Browns | Josh Gordon fine with new teammate

Sat, 17 Mar 2018 17:49:07 -0700

Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon cleared the air with new FS Damarious Randall on Wednesday, March 14. Gordon took exception on Twitter last season after Randall bragged to the media about holding Gordon to one catch, and then the defender fired back later alluding to Gordon's battle with alcohol and drug addiction. "We just had a great, great dinner," Randall said of the meeting. "We're looking forward to being great teammates and just winning a lot of games."

Browns | Josh Gordon tendered by Cleveland

Tue, 13 Mar 2018 09:19:51 -0700

Cleveland Browns exclusive-rights free agent WR Josh Gordon received a one-year tender worth $790,000 on Tuesday, March 13. He will not be able to negotiate with other teams as a result.

Fantasy Tip: Gordon's options were limited as an exclusive-rights free agent, but this tender does give him the right to sign a long-term deal down the road. If he has truly moved past his off-field problems, he should have no problem doing so. He has long had fantasy WR1 upside, but owners would be wise to draft him more like a low-end WR2 or WR3 given his history.

Browns | HC wants Josh Gordon to remain a Brown

Fri, 02 Mar 2018 00:04:10 -0800

Cleveland Browns head coach Hue Jackson said that he wants WR Josh Gordon to remain with the club "for a long time," adding that he's been having a "really good offseason." Jackson also believes Gordon "is going to have a great year for us."

Fantasy Tip: There can be no denying Gordon's immense talents and the 26-year-old reminded everyone of that at times in his five games this past season following his reinstatement. While his overall numbers weren't of the spectacular kind, that could mainly be attributed to poor quarterback play, which the team will address as its top priority this offseason. Gordon is worth watching in all drafts for his WR2 potential.

Browns | Josh Gordon to be ERFA

Wed, 21 Feb 2018 15:12:32 -0800

Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon will be an exclusive rights free agent this offseason because he did not play in enough games this season for an accrued season.

Fantasy Tip: Gordon will not be allowed to talk with other teams, so he will be with the Browns for at least one more seasons. He recorded 335 yards and one touchdown in five games this season and should be a focal point in the passing game in 2018. He can be at least a No. 3 receiver in fantasy leagues.

Browns | Josh Gordon quiet in Week 16

Sun, 24 Dec 2017 13:26:39 -0800

Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon caught two passes for 19 yards against the Chicago Bears in Week 16.

Fantasy Tip: Gordon was targeted eight times during the game but was not able to be a big factor in the passing game. He should continue to receive a lot of targets next week against the Pittsburgh Steelers and could be a No. 3 receiver or a flex option.

Browns | Josh Gordon catches five pass

Sun, 17 Dec 2017 14:49:45 -0800

Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon caught five passes for 47 yards against the Baltimore Ravens in Week 15.

Fantasy Tip: Gordon has received 28 targets in the three games since being added to the roster and will continue to see plenty of targets in the last two games. He can be at least a No. 3 fantasy receiver next week against the Chicago Bears.

Browns | Josh Gordon back into end zone

Sun, 10 Dec 2017 16:18:46 -0800

Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon finished with three receptions for a team-high 69 yards and a touchdown on six targets in Week 14 against the Green Bay Packers for his first touchdown since the 2013 season, or 1,078 days.

Fantasy Tip: Gordon has scored 10 or more fantasy points in PPR leagues in his first two games back, just the fourth player in NFL history to do that after such a lengthy absence. He is a special talent and is back as a fantasy standout as long as he can stay out of trouble.

Browns | Josh Gordon makes impact in return

Sun, 03 Dec 2017 16:35:10 -0800

Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon finished with four receptions for 85 yards on 11 targets in the Week 13 game against the Los Angeles Chargers.

Fantasy Tip: Gordon was suspended for more than two seasons due to substance addiction, but he satisfied the NFL and Commissioner Roger Goodell to earn another chance. He looked awfully good and didn't show a lot of rust. Fantasy owners in need of a receiver should trust him down the stretch.

Browns | Josh Gordon will start in return

Thu, 30 Nov 2017 10:38:06 -0800

Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon will start, as expected, against the Los Angeles Chargers in Week 13, according to head coach Hue Jackson.

Fantasy Tip: Jackson has done nothing but rave about the prodigal receiver over the last week or two. Gordon is a physical specimen and a gifted receiver, but he hasn't played real football in three years. Take the risk if you're out of the playoffs, but starting him with a postseason berth on the line is playing with fire.

Browns | Josh Gordon to play 'as much as possible'

Mon, 27 Nov 2017 11:56:09 -0800

Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon, who was reinstated on a conditional basis earlier in November, is poised to play his first regular season game in nearly three years in Week 13 against the Los Angeles Chargers. Head coach Hue Jackson told reporters he hopes to play Gordon "as much as possible."

Fantasy Tip: Considering the talent and the amount of time he has been away from the game, the potential range of outcomes for this week and the remainder of the season is huge. Gordon led the league with 1,646 yards receiving in only 14 games in 2013, then looked like a shell of himself after a long suspension in 2014. Owners owe it to themselves to give him at least one prove-it week before even they even consider trusting Gordon in their playoff lineups, but the talent is obviously there for him to be a league-winner.

Browns | Josh Gordon could play in Week 13

Sun, 26 Nov 2017 07:19:32 -0800

Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon is expected to be activated by the team from the Reserve/Commissioner Exempt List this week, according to a source informed of the team's thinking. This means he would return to the field for Week 13's game versus the Los Angeles Chargers.

Fantasy Tip: The 26-year-old Gordon is set to play for the first time since Dec. 21, 2014, following multiple suspensions for repeated violations of the league's substance abuse policy. He was impressive after returning to practice last week but there has never been any doubt about his ability. Gordon is worth rostering in all fantasy formats but he should not be started in his first game back.

Browns | Josh Gordon back at practice Wednesday

Wed, 22 Nov 2017 11:29:43 -0800

Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon took part in practice in a regular season full-squad practice Wednesday, Nov. 22, for the first time since Dec. 26, 2014.

Fantasy Tip: It's impossible to say with any conviction whether or not Gordon can have an impact in fantasy this season, but he seems to have turned his life around. The talent has never been in question with him, and it wouldn't be a surprise if he has an immediate impact in Week 13 - the first week he is eligible to play. With that said, owners would be wise to let him prove it for a game or two before sticking him in their lineups during the fantasy playoffs.

Browns | Josh Gordon will practice soon

Thu, 16 Nov 2017 11:21:43 -0800

Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon is slated to begin practicing Monday, Nov. 20, according to head coach Hue Jackson. Jackson added that Gordon is doing all the right things, including showing up for meetings on time, and has been a "pleasure to be around."

Fantasy Tip: Whether or not Gordon's attitude and focus translate to the field remains to be seen. He's been out of the game since 2014, so the risk involved in starting him right away is obvious. Gordon's upside is clear, but don't start him immediately. Pick him up if he's still on waivers though.

Browns | Josh Gordon returns to Browns

Tue, 07 Nov 2017 11:37:26 -0800

Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon officially returned to the Browns' facility Tuesday, Nov. 7, and is expected to participate in team meetings Wednesday, Nov. 8.

Fantasy Tip: Gordon won't be able to take the field for a few more weeks still, so don't think about starting him yet. When he does play, there is plenty of rust to shake off and the quarterback play has been some of the worst in the NFL. Gordon should merely be a fun, desperation flex play for teams eliminated from the playoffs.

Browns | Josh Gordon reinstated on conditional basis

Wed, 01 Nov 2017 15:35:11 -0700

Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon has been reinstated by the NFL on a conditional basis and will begin practicing with the Browns starting Monday, Nov. 20. He can immediately take part in meetings and individual workouts and can be added to the active roster Monday, Nov. 27.

Fantasy Tip: There is a chance that Gordon will be able to play in December, so owners will need to monitor the situation. He has been successful when he has played and could be added in deeper leagues, but the team's quarterback situation will hurt his fantasy value.

Browns | Josh Gordon to meet with NFL

Tue, 31 Oct 2017 22:28:26 -0700

Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon is set to meet with the NFL Wednesday, Nov. 1, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Gordon, who hasn't played since 2014, is seeking reinstatement.

Fantasy Tip: There were some rumblings that Gordon's rights would be dealt, but the deadline came and went without any action. If Gordon were to be reinstated it'd be interesting to see what the Browns did with him. He was a legitimate big-play receiver prior to his issues so he'd definitely be of interest if he were to return to the NFL.

Browns | Josh Gordon could be traded

Tue, 31 Oct 2017 11:19:13 -0700

Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon may be reinstated by the NFL soon, and it's possible the Browns are willing trade the rights to him before the traded deadline Tuesday, Oct. 31, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: This is an interesting development considering Gordon has not played this year and all the off-field trouble he's been in in his young career. The talent is obviously there, though, and Gordon is still young at 26 years old. It would take a brave team to take another chance on Gordon. If he is traded, and reinstated, then he becomes a top waiver wire priority.

Browns | No reinstatement yet for Josh Gordon

Tue, 03 Oct 2017 11:14:52 -0700

Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon has not yet applied for reinstatement, a source said Tuesday, Oct. 3.

Fantasy Tip: It's uncertain if Gordon will apply for reinstatement soon and how it will go when he does try. He has a long way to go before potentially seeing game action and therefore he warrants no fantasy consideration at this time.

Browns | Josh Gordon reinstatement not on horizon

Thu, 17 Aug 2017 11:16:21 -0700

Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon's potential reinstatement to the NFL is not being actively considered, according to commissioner Roger Goodell. Gordon is eligible to re-apply for reinstatement in September after being denied reinstatement three months ago.

Fantasy Tip: Gordon has serious recurring off-field issues. He can be avoided altogether in fantasy leagues until at least next season, at which point he may still not be reinstated.

Browns | Cleveland not writing off Josh Gordon?

Thu, 11 May 2017 18:28:29 -0700

Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon would be welcomed back if he is reinstated and is able to put his life back together, according to team sources.

Fantasy Tip: You can stash Gordon on the end of your bench in keeper formats if you want, but he is probably just dead weight.

Browns | Josh Gordon's reinstatement denied

Thu, 11 May 2017 08:40:33 -0700

Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon's reinstatement petition was denied Thursday, May 11. He can reapply this fall.

Fantasy Tip: Gordon is a bit of an enigma and can't be trusted for fantasy purposes. He has all the talent in the world when he is on the field. He'd be a WR3 if reinstated, but that doesn't look promising in the interim.

Browns | Josh Gordon sticking with Cleveland?

Wed, 29 Mar 2017 11:01:15 -0700

Updating previous reports, Cleveland Browns general manager Sashi Brown said Cleveland may not release WR Josh Gordon. "We're not in a position at wide receiver to turn down a guy like Josh if we feel like he's settled himself," Brown said Tuesday, March 28, at the Annual League Meeting in Phoenix, per the Akron Beacon Journal. Head coach Hue Jackson previously said the Browns were expected to move on from Gordon.

Fantasy Tip: Gordon remains suspended and is nothing more that a late-round flier in fantasy until that changes.

Browns | Josh Gordon working with speed coach

Sat, 25 Mar 2017 19:09:36 -0700

Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon has been training with speed coach and former Olympian Tim Montgomery.

Fantasy Tip: Gordon's issues off the field have ruined a promising career. He will likely receive another shot in the NFL, but he is nothing more than a late-round lottery ticket.

Browns | Josh Gordon unlikely to stay with CLE

Sat, 25 Mar 2017 05:06:58 -0700

Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon likely will be traded or released if he is reinstated by the NFL, according to a source. The Browns would own Gordon's rights for two more years if he is reinstated.

Fantasy Tip: Gordon has not played since 2014 because of suspensions but there is a chance he could play in 2017. He has played well when he has been on the field but has been suspended multiple times because of substance abuse. He will be a risky option in all fantasy leagues and could only be a No. 5 receiver in deeper leagues if he plays.

Wed, 01 Mar 2017 07:43:40 -0800

Browns | Josh Gordon can be traded

Mon, 31 Oct 2016 06:38:45 -0700

Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon is allowed to be traded despite his indefinite suspension from the NFL. Gordon was released from an inpatient rehabilitation center Sunday, Oct. 30.

Fantasy Tip: Gordon can still be held in dynasty leagues depending on your roster restraints, but that's really pushing it right now after this long of a layoff.

Browns | Josh Gordon stays suspended

Mon, 03 Oct 2016 15:00:11 -0700

Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon will remain on the NFL's Reserve/Suspended list pending further notice. Gordon recently checked himself into a rehabilitation facility.

Fantasy Tip: Gordon's future in Cleveland is all but over, and he may not play in a professional football game ever again. Terrelle Pryor remains the only fantasy relevant receiver for the Browns for the time being, but Corey Coleman will make a nice No. 2 when he returns from injury. Their ceiling is lowered with Cody Kessler at the helm, although Pryor has played like a low-end WR1 to high-end WR2 the last two weeks with Kessler.

Browns | Josh Gordon likely to be released

Fri, 30 Sep 2016 13:30:37 -0700

Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon is expected to be released shortly in the wake of his announcement Thursday, Sept. 29, that he will an in-patient rehabilitation facility and after head coach Hue Jackson suggested the team was looking to move forward without the troubled receiver. "We wish him well. We need to close that chapter right now. We're moving on," Jackson said Friday, Sept. 30.

Fantasy Tip: It seems hard to believe a single team isn't willing to part with the conditional seventh-rounder to land Gordon, but the Browns may simply want to move on with their rebuilding process as quickly as possible. The supremely talented receiver will almost certainly get another shot, but let's first hope he can get his life in order first. He should be considered out indefinitely.

Browns | Josh Gordon done with the Browns?

Thu, 29 Sep 2016 15:45:34 -0700

Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon's career with the team is "likely over," as he's not expected to receive another shot with this regime.

Fantasy Tip: Gordon has been given several chances in Cleveland to stay out of trouble, but unfortunately, the talented wide-out just hasn't been able to abide. There's no doubt he'd get another shot elsewhere if the Browns do dispose of him, but who knows when that will be with the 25-year-old just checking into rehab. Whenever Gordon is able to emerge from this, he's still capable of being a force again.

Browns | Josh Gordon entering rehab

Thu, 29 Sep 2016 14:42:37 -0700

Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon announced Thursday, Sept. 29, that he is stepping away from pursuing his return to football in order to enter a rehabilitation facility.

Fantasy Tip: Whether or not Gordon's football career is completely over remains to be seen, but the prospect of him playing in 2016 doesn't sound promising. Terrelle Pryor will continue to be the best fantasy option in Cleveland's passing game with Gordon not returning and has WR2 appeal for the rest of the season. Aside from Pryor, Corey Coleman, when he makes a healthy return, and Gary Barnidge are really the only other startable pass-catchers going forward for the Browns.

Browns | Warrant for Josh Gordon rescinded

Wed, 21 Sep 2016 22:40:32 -0700

An arrest warrant for Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon was withdrawn after the receiver complied with a year-old court order to take a DNA test in a paternity suit. In a statement, Gordon's attorneys said he was unaware until noon Wednesday, Sept. 21, that he had been requested to take the test.

Fantasy Tip: Gordon remains on track for a return from his four-game suspension in Week 5. He might have a little rust initially, but he has WR2 upside if he can get up to speed quickly.

Browns | Josh Gordon on track for Week 5

Wed, 21 Sep 2016 11:27:23 -0700

Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon is still on track to return for the team's Week 5 game even though a warrant has been issued for his arrest stemming from a paternity case, according to an NFL spokesperson.

Fantasy Tip: Gordon should have a role in the passing game when he returns, but he may be a risky option because of his latest off-field incident. Gordon could be a No. 3 receiver in leagues starting Week 5 with a chance to be more valuable depending on his play.

Browns | Josh Gordon makes presence felt

Fri, 26 Aug 2016 21:04:23 -0700

Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon caught two passes for 87 yards and a touchdown in a 30-13 preseason loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Friday, Aug. 26.

Fantasy Tip: Gordon reminded fantasy owners of his upside, and he is a high-risk, high-reward option to target in the middle rounds. He could end up providing WR2 numbers for a discounted price.

Browns | Josh Gordon for a second rounder?

Fri, 26 Aug 2016 08:23:52 -0700

Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon was part of trade discussions, and the package Cleveland sought was a second-round pick and more, according to sources. The team denied listening to offers.

Fantasy Tip: Gordon will miss the first four games, but his masterful 2013 season is still fresh in people's minds. The risk and reward is vast, and while it may be tough to do, he's best pegged as a WR3.

Browns | Browns not trying to trade Josh Gordon

Thu, 25 Aug 2016 17:37:25 -0700

Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon said he wants to stay put, while the team has said there are no plans to trade the 25-year-old wideout. "Listening (to trade offers) is probably a mischaracterization," said Browns executive vice president of football operations Sashi Brown. "We've said all we needed to say about it. We're not looking to trade Josh."

Fantasy Tip: It appears unless an offer comes along that completely wows Browns management, Gordon is indeed going nowhere. He's slated to serve a four-game suspension to begin the campaign, but once he's done with that, Gordon will have WR1 potential. At the same time, owners shouldn't be surprised if he ultimately settles in as a solid WR2 due to the rust he'll probably be dealing with after only playing in five games the past two seasons.

Browns | Josh Gordon set to play Friday

Wed, 24 Aug 2016 09:07:31 -0700

Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon (quadriceps) will play against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Friday, Aug. 26, according to head coach Hue Jackson.

Fantasy Tip: Gordon will miss the first four games of the season due to a suspension, but he projects to return to a starting role once eligible in Week 5. He's two years removed from his dominant 2013 campaign, but fantasy owners shouldn't count out WR2 numbers from Gordon once he's back on the field. He's an enticing risk to take in the middle rounds of drafts once you're comfortable with your core selections.

Browns | Teams calling about Josh Gordon

Tue, 23 Aug 2016 05:52:27 -0700

Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon has had multiple teams call the Browns inquiring about his availability, according to sources. A team source said the Browns aren't looking to trade Gordon, and many around the league believe head coach Hue Jackson is the right coach for Gordon to thrive with.

Fantasy Tip: Gordon will miss the first four games of the season, but Joe Haden raved about how well Gordon looks in practice as if he hasn't missed a step from a long hiatus. Gordon is a low-end WR2, but he makes a dynamite WR3 as the risk and reward are pretty high.

Mon, 22 Aug 2016 06:53:58 -0700

Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon (quadriceps) is running with the first-team offense in practice Monday, Aug. 22.

Fantasy Tip: Gordon will be suspended the first four games of the season, and there's some uncertainty as to how productive he'll be after such a long layoff. He's a boom-or-bust WR2 in fantasy, but you can't go wrong with him as a third receiver.

Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon (quadriceps) is likely to play his first preseason game Friday, Aug. 26. "He still looks the exact same and it's just crazy,'' CB Joe Haden said.

Fantasy Tip: Gordon will be suspended the first four games of the season, and there's some uncertainty as to how productive he'll be after such a long layoff. He's a boom-or-bust WR2 in fantasy, but you can't go wrong with him as a third receiver.

Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon was about 10 pounds overweight after missing time with a quadriceps injury, but beat writer Mary Kay Cabot said the weight is already coming off now that he is back practicing.

Fantasy Tip: It remains to be seen if Gordon can return to the form he showed before his career was derailed by suspensions, but there is no denying the talent. He is worth gambling on in the middle rounds as a WR4.

Browns | Josh Gordon may practice

Sun, 21 Aug 2016 09:37:44 -0700

Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon (quadriceps) hopefully will be able to participate in practice this week, according to head coach Hue Jackson.

Fantasy Tip: Gordon has been dealing with the injury throughout training camp but appears to be close to returning. He has been suspended for the first four games of the 2016 season but still has plenty of value in fantasy leagues. He should be considered a No. 3 or No. 4 receiver in most fantasy leagues.

Fantasy Tip: Gordon has been dealing with a quadriceps injury and only returned to practice earlier in the week, so he probably will need to practice more before playing in a game. Gordon will miss the first four games because of a suspension but should have a decent role when he returns. Gordon has a chance to be a No. 3 or No. 4 receiver in fantasy leagues.

Browns | Josh Gordon limited Monday

Mon, 15 Aug 2016 14:17:13 -0700

Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon (quadriceps) was limited to individual drills during practice Monday, Aug. 15. Head coach Hue Jackson said Gordon likely will not play in the preseason game against the Atlanta Falcons Thursday, Aug. 18.

Fantasy Tip: Gordon will be eased back into practice but should be able to play in the final two preseason games. He is scheduled to miss the first four games of the 2016 season but should be a main part of the passing game when he returns. Owners in most leagues should consider Gordon a No. 3 or No. 4 receiver with upside.

Browns | Josh Gordon should return soon

Mon, 15 Aug 2016 09:16:52 -0700

Updating a previous report, Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon (quadriceps) is not expected to miss much practice time with a strained quadriceps muscle, according to Browns head coach Hue Jackson.

Fantasy Tip: Strains and dings are to be expected from a player who has been away from the team as much as Gordon. Even with a four-game suspension, he's a high-upside WR3 in fantasy drafts.

Browns | Josh Gordon limited at practice Sunday

Sun, 14 Aug 2016 15:07:56 -0700

Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon (quadriceps) took part in the walkthrough portion of practice Sunday, Aug. 14.

Fantasy Tip: Gordon reported to camp out of shape in the eyes of head coach Hue Jackson and quickly pulled his quad shortly thereafter. The enigmatic playmaker will serve a four-game suspension to begin the season and may be asked to play second fiddle to Corey Coleman in the passing game if the rookie can get off to a good enough start. With Terrelle Pryor also looking like he may be an option in the Browns' run-heavy attack, it seems unlikely Gordon will live up to his sixth-round ADP in PPR formats.
