Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon posted 151 yards and a touchdown in Week 14 against the New England Patriots. He set an NFL record with 774 receiving yards over a four-game span.

Huddle Up: It seems Gordon is almost matchup-proof. Aqib Talib was supposed to slow him down. He did manage to prevent Gordon from hitting 200 yards this week, we suppose.

Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon will likely face off against New England Patriots CB Aqib Talib in Week 14, and Gordon vows to make plays against the star cornerback. Gordon owns the highest yards per game average this year at 124.9. Talib hasn't allowed more than 121 yards all year to receivers he's covered. 'I'm pretty sure he'll make some plays, but I'm definitely going to make more plays,' said Gordon.

Huddle Up: A 3rd straight 200-yard receiving game is almost certainly out of the question, but there's no way you're even thinking of tinkering with fantasy's hottest wideout no matter who's covering him or where he's playing.

Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon said Wednesday, Oct. 23, that it is his understanding that another violation of the league's substance abuse policy would result in a season-long suspension, which might be part of the reason the team is open to dealing him. Gordon said he is glad head coach Rob Chudzinski has supported him, and he wants to make a difference for the team. 'I'm here in Cleveland, and I want to make a difference here in Cleveland. This is where I am right now. Whatever happens tomorrow, I'll have to deal with that then. But my head and my space is right here, and that's what I'm focusing on,' Gordon said.

Huddle Up: Despite his off-field issues and the team's QB struggles, Gordon has shown he'll produce when playing -- something that's clearly been in short supply in the Browns' organization -- and right now the team seems willing to go forward with Gordon as part of the latest rebuilding effort.

At least three teams have contacted the Cleveland Browns about trading for WR Josh Gordon, and two have standing offers of a high pick and a player. The Browns are reportedly balking.

Huddle Up: With 27 receptions for 450 yards and 2 TDs in 5 games, the second-year Gordon has cemented his status as the Browns' unquestioned No. 1 WR, but if the offer is too good to pass up, he'll follow RB Trent Richardson out of town.

The Atlanta Falcons are not currently seeking to swing a deal with the Cleveland Browns for WR Josh Gordon or any other wide receiver, according to a source. The team has a giant hole at the position following the injury to WR Julio Jones (foot) which may keep him sidelined for the rest of the season.

Huddle Up: Gordon going to Atlanta -- or San Fran as also has been rumored -- would certainly raise his fantasy value, but unless a team bowls over the Browns with too-good-to-refuse offer, look for the talented second-year WR to stay put.

Posted: 10/7/2013 4:32pm et

The San Francisco 49ers have talked with the Cleveland Browns about the possibility of acquiring WR Josh Gordon, but a trade is unlikely because 49ers are expected to get WRs Mario Manningham (knee) and Michael Crabtree (Achilles') back at some point this season.

Huddle Up: It would be intriguing to see Gordon in San Francisco, but this seems unlikely given the risk and the fact Michael Crabtree and Mario Manningham are on track to return in the next several weeks.

Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon caught 4 passes for a game-high 86 yards, including a 37-yard TD catch, in his team's 37-24 win over the Buffalo Bills on Thursday, Oct. 3.

Huddle Up: Gordon's season got off to a late start thanks to a 2-game suspension, but he's been one of the league's top fantasy wideouts with 18 receptions for 303 yards and 2 TDs over the past 3 weeks. Keep rolling with the 2nd-year WR no matter who the Browns' starting QB is.

Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon made his regular season debut in Week 3 against the Minnesota Vikings, posting 10 receptions for 146 yards and a score. Gordon was targeted a whopping 19 times in the victory.

Huddle Up: He looked every bit like the star in the making he was last season, right out of the gate. Gordon should be in your starting lineups from here on out.

Posted: 9/18/2013 8:20pm et

Some anonymous NFL executives feel that if Cleveland Browns chief executive officer Joe Banner could trade WR Josh Gordon, he will do it before the NFL trade deadline of Oct. 29.

Huddle Up: Take this with a grain of salt because it's coming from an anonymous source but if Cleveland is willing to part with Trent Richardson, it will move any player for the right price. The Browns are obviously already looking ahead to 2014.

Posted: 9/16/2013 1:58pm et

Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon said he believes he would be suspended for an entire season if he fails another drug test.

Huddle Up: It's good that the second-year receiver is self-aware. Hopefully he stays out of trouble and produces. Pick him up off waivers if he happens to be there.

Cleveland Browns WRs Greg Little and Josh Gordon pleaded no contest to traffic offenses in separate cases. Little was fined $472 for license plate and parking violations. Gordon was fined $296 for a speeding charge. Head coach Rob Chudzinski said their driving behavior was unacceptable, and he has talked to both about their actions.

Huddle Up: Gordon is wrapping up a two-game suspension for other questionable off-field decisions, and the Browns have to hope he returns with more maturity in order to avoid further league- and legal-mandated absences.

Posted: 8/28/2013 12:44am et

Cleveland Browns head coach Rob Chudzinski said Tuesday, Aug. 27, that WR Josh Gordon will play in the preseason finale Thursday, Aug. 29, against the Chicago Bears.

Huddle Up: Gordon ranks third on the squad with 5 preseason catches for 99 yards so far, but will miss the first 2 games of the regular season while serving his substance-abuse suspension. He obviously needs to be dinged for that on draft boards, but don't drop him too far as he remains the Browns' No. 1 wideout.

Posted: 7/30/2013 10:15am et

Updating a previous report, Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon is dealing with patellar tendonitis.

Huddle Up: No reason to push Gordon during training camp, as he'll miss the first two games of the season due to suspension. Better to have Cleveland's stud receiver healthy and ready to go in Week 3 than continuing to battle knee issues.

Posted: 7/29/2013 9:12pm et

Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon (knee) was limited during practice Monday, July 29, because of tendonitis in his knee. Head coach Rob Chudzinski said he is not sure if Gordon will need to undergo an MRI but does not think the injury is serious.

Huddle Up: Gordon already has seen his fantasy value take a hit due to the 2-game suspension he'll serve to open the season, and any injury concerns could ding him even more. Just don't let him fall too far, though, on your draft board as he still figures to the Browns' top target once he returns -- and if he's healthy.

Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon, who will start the season with a two-game suspension for codeine usage, will be on a short leash, according to CEO Joe Banner. "He's talked to (head coach Rob Chudzinski) a lot," Banner said Wednesday, July 24. "He knows he has work to do. He gets that the rope that's left isn't long. He needs to be accountable."

Huddle Up: Gordon had some question marks coming into the league via the supplemental draft, and his suspension this season does nothing to erase those questions. He flashed plenty of talent last year, but the Browns are at least talking like he needs to perform well off the field as well to keep his job.

Posted: 6/7/2013 5:10pm et

Updating a previous report, Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon said he had strep throat in February, and did not realize the cough medicine he took had codeine in it, which resulted in the two game suspension.

Huddle Up: On the bright side, it's a different tune than the Adderall that is usually blamed for positive drug tests. We'll have to see if the league buys the cough syrup defense and if it results in Gordon's suspension being reduced or overturned.

Posted: 6/7/2013 5:05pm et

Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon has been suspended two games for an NFL substance abuse violation. Gordon will also be fined four games pay.

Huddle Up: Sigh. So much for Gordon being an undervalued sleeper grab for fantasy teams. Does anything positive ever happen for the Browns?

Posted: 5/26/2013 11:24pm et

Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon said he likes the offense head coach Rob Chudzinski and offensive coordinator Norv Turner are bringing to the team because of the passing attack. 'Defenses will be shocked to say the least with how much we're running down field,' Gordon said. 'I've never ran this much as a wide receiver ever in my life, and that's a good thing. And not just me, everyone from the slot guys to running backs, everyone's got passing plays in the system.'

Huddle Up: Gordon's 16.1-yard-per-catch average -- on 50 receptions -- tied for eighth in the league a year ago, and that could increase as Turner is a big proponent of throwing downfield.
