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.
