Josh Gordon: Past News Updates   ( ▲ View most recent update )

Gordon has been suspended for one year by the NFL for violating the league's substance-abuse policy, ESPN's Adam Schefter and NFL Network's Albert Breer report.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Per Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer, with the league's ruling on the matter having now been upheld on appeal, Gordon will be eligible to apply for reinstatement with NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell one year from now. Gordon's 2014 fantasy utility is obviously gone with the news, unless he were able to sue the NFL for an injunction, staying the suspension. If Gordon declines to file suit, or the court rejects it, you can safely drop him, but otherwise wait a couple days until his legal options have been ruled out.
Gordon's hearing on a drunken driving charge stemming from a July arrest in North Carolina has been rescheduled for November 18th, the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

Gordon (abdomen) returned to practice Saturday, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Limited throughout most of the week by an abdominal injury, Gordon was back in pads Saturday morning and still has a chance to play in Monday's preseason game against the Redskins, according to coach Mike Pettine. Gordon suffered the injury in the Browns' first exhibition contest last weekend, but the team has said from the get-go that it's just a minor issue. Of more importance for prospective owners is the ruling on his suspension appeal, which could come down by the end of next week.

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

The Browns took a chance on Gordon, forgoing a second-round pick to draft him in the supplemental round last year, and it panned out. Gordon managed a robust 8.5 YPT and 16.1 YPC on a below-average passing team, while scoring five touchdowns on just 95 targets. At 6-3, 221 and with 4.5 speed, Gordon is a prototypical No. 1 target with red-zone size and enough explosiveness to beat defenses deep. He enters 2013 as the team's No. 1 receiver and its most dangerous outside playmaker as Greg Little has shown himself to be little more than a possession threat, and only an average one at that. Just keep in mind Gordon is suspended for the regular season's first two games after violating the league's substance abuse policy.

2012

After failing to address the wide receiver position in April's draft until selecting Travis Benjamin in the fourth round, the Browns made a splash when they took Gordon in the second round of the supplemental draft. It's a calculated risk as he missed all of 2011 after being suspended from Baylor before transferring to Utah. In his sophomore season in 2010 at Baylor he posted 42 catches for 714 yards (17.0 YPC) and seven touchdowns. He has the prototypical size (6-foot-3) and speed (4.52 40-time) to be successful at the professional level, but it's unclear how much rust he'll have to knock off first. The opportunity is there for Gordon as there isn't a tremendous amount of talent in Cleveland he must leap to get looks, and the Browns made a significant commitment to get him by sacrificing next year's second rounder, so he could be an interesting sleeper pick in the later rounds of drafts this summer.
