Huddle Up: If you've already taken a late-round fantasy flier on Gordon, you certainly have nothing to lose in hoping for some sort of injunction, but overall, this is exactly what we need: More uncertainty, red tape and legal wrangling over the playing status of 2013's top wideout. You'll have no choice but to stay tuned.

Huddle Up: Condolences to those re-draft league GMs who took a mid- or late-round gamble on Gordon. Cincy import Andrew Hawkins stands as our highest-ranked Browns WR, but he only rates bench status in all but the larger leagues at this point. Meanwhile, the stock of TE Jordan Cameron is higher than ever as should be the team's runaway leader in all receiving categories if he stays healthy.

Huddle Up: The seemingly endless wait for the Gordon decision continues. Meanwhile, fantasy GMs have had to make their calls, and Gordon currently owns the 44th-highest ADP among WRs, coming off the board with the 116th pick on average

Huddle Up: The expectation was that the two sides might meet in the middle, with the league offering an 8-game suspension as a settlement option. With no settlement talks, it's tough to expect a settlement--and that means unless the judge hearing the appeal decides to step outside the NFL's guidebook it's either a year off as expected for Gordon, or he gets off without punishment. And you can guess where this is most likely headed.

Huddle Up: Quite possibly the WR's mind was more on his looming suspension, which likely -- hopefully -- will be announced this week.
Posted: 8/14/2014 11:51pm ET
Huddle Up: Bad news for the fantasy world as another week of drafts will enter the books without official word on Gordon's status for the season.
Posted: 8/12/2014 9:11am ET
Huddle Up: The sooner the better, for both the Browns and fantasy owners wondering what draft pick to toss at the possibility of eight games from last season's top receiver.
Posted: 8/7/2014 3:59pm ET
Huddle Up: Nope, nothing definitive yet, as fantasy leaguers near and far await some sort of decision.
Posted: 8/6/2014 10:22am ET
Huddle Up: Eight games would actually be a step up from the year-long ban the Browns originally thought Gordon would be facing--and of course there's no guarantee Gordon's appeal will be successful anyway. At this juncture you can stash Gordon at the end of a large roster and hope the appeals process gives him half a season in 2014.
Posted: 8/5/2014 12:42am ET
Huddle Up: This ongoing will-he-or-won't-he-be-suspended saga certainly isn't doing fantasy GMs any favors with drafts approaching, but bank on Gordon missing more time than less this coming season to err on the safe side.
Posted: 8/1/2014 6:03pm ET
Huddle Up: Really, what's another few days in this saga which has been dragging on all offseason?
Posted: 7/31/2014 12:06am ET
Huddle Up: There was speculation Gordon's suspension could be reduced from 16 to 8 games but that won't be the case. Gordon will either miss the entire 2014 season or be in the Browns' starting lineup Week 1.
Posted: 7/30/2014 2:36pm ET
Huddle Up: Uh, anything else you want to say in your defense, Mr. Gordon? Not looking good . . .
Posted: 7/29/2014 5:59pm ET
Huddle Up: Nothing definitive here to alter any draft strategies -- just the latest update on 2013's top fantasy WR and his ongoing battle to avoid a year-long suspension.
Posted: 7/28/2014 9:07pm ET
Huddle Up: Gordon will try to tap some of Suh's legal magic as he attempts to shave whatever he can off his looming 1-year suspension.
Posted: 7/24/2014 11:53pm ET
Huddle Up: Hopefully, the stint did some good for Gordon who will appeal his one-year suspension on Aug. 1. Even if he wins the appeal, expect 2013's top fantasy wideout to miss at least half of the upcoming season.
Posted: 7/18/2014 5:16pm ET
Huddle Up: At this point it's unlikely Gordon sees the field in 2014. The Browns need to figure out a way for Gordon to get his life in order so a return to action in 2015 is possible. And fantasy owners need to determine if a potential Gordon return is worth carrying on their dynasty roster through the 2014 season.
Posted: 7/13/2014 3:57pm ET
Huddle Up: When the problem clearly -- and continually -- outweighs the production, then a player will be let go, but Gordon is by far the Browns' top offensive weapon after leading the league -- and shattering the franchise single-season record -- with 1,646 receiving yards last year, so the squad likely isn't at the waiver- wire stage with the wideout quite yet.
Posted: 7/7/2014 10:25pm ET
Huddle Up: That's not going to play well with the league offices if/when Gordon applies for reinstatement. But more than that, as everyone from current and former teammates to Hall of Fame receiver (and recovering addict) Cris Carter has noted, is that Gordon needs to sort out some life issues first before he can start worrying about returning to the NFL.
Posted: 7/6/2014 3:27pm ET
Huddle Up: This latest incident may have been the proverbial "last nail" for last season's top-ranked fantasy wideout, who already was staring at a possible season-long suspension. The hope is now that any suspensions and/or decisions will be made soon enough for fantasy GMs to adjust their plans accordingly.
Posted: 7/4/2014 12:51am ET
Huddle Up: Any reduction will be a bonus after the prevalent year-long suspension reports, and hopefully fantasy GMs will receive a definitive word early enough to make draft and personnel plans accordingly.
Posted: 6/12/2014 11:11pm ET
Huddle Up: The sooner the better for keeper-league owners and the Browns, who know they're going to have to make contingency plans for at least some length of the season.
Posted: 6/4/2014 4:48pm ET
Huddle Up: Maybe the good news here is that it's a speeding ticket and not a DUI for Gordon. Silver linings.
Posted: 5/19/2014 3:19pm ET
Huddle Up: The suspension continues to loom over Gordon and the Browns, but for now all they can do is carry on as if he'll be with the team.
Posted: 5/13/2014 11:38pm ET
Huddle Up: The Gordon news certainly did its best to try and rain on the Johnny Football draft parade in Cleveland, and this is no doubt potentially devastating given the Browns otherwise lack a No. 1 WR option. At the same time, even if it turns out to be a year suspension, the franchise isn't going to pull the quick trigger and dump the best offensive playmaker the squad has seen in years.
Posted: 5/12/2014 12:43pm ET
Huddle Up: The Browns were poised to be an explosive offense, but Gordon's likely absence sets them back a bit. Keep an eye on which back (or backs) climb to the top of the depth chart, as there will be plenty of carries in Cleveland.
Posted: 5/9/2014 8:08pm ET
Huddle Up: The Browns were already expected to be looking for a wide receiver in this draft class, and the fact they didn't pull the trigger on Sammy Watkins in the first round might suggest they think Gordon will escape punishment. Conversely, maybe they were stockpiling picks for 2015 knowing that they'd be without their top receiver for all of 2014. It's a developing situation, to be sure.
Posted: 12/9/2013 1:35am ET
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.
Posted: 12/6/2013 6:21pm ET
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.
Posted: 10/24/2013 12:52pm ET
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.
Posted: 10/21/2013 11:12pm ET
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.
Posted: 10/8/2013 11:33pm ET
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
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.
Posted: 10/4/2013 12:00am ET
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.
Posted: 9/22/2013 7:28pm ET
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
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
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.
Posted: 9/11/2013 9:56am ET
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
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.
