Huddle Up: At last, confirmation here following some scattershot reports -- unless, of course, Gordon manages to find more trouble in the meantime.
Posted: 9/17/2014 10:46am ET
Huddle Up: And now we have a return date. Those of you squatting on Gordon, you get to determine if returning in Week 12--essentially the last couple regular season games and the fantasy playoffs--is worth holding a roster spot.
Posted: 9/17/2014 12:02am ET
Huddle Up: This is the best-case scenario for those holding on to last season's top fantasy wideout and, if there are no further alterations, that makes him eligible to return in Week 12.
Posted: 9/16/2014 4:05pm ET
Huddle Up: Most reports indicate -- and, hey, they've been off base on this before -- that Gordon will receive an extra 2 games tacked on to his expected 10-game ban if and when this new drug policy is finally approved. So if you're stashing Gordon and don't feel you can spare the roster space until the fantasy playoffs, move on and find someone else.
Posted: 9/12/2014 8:51pm ET
Huddle Up: Gordon would be available for Weeks 12-17, assuming he doesn't get into anymore trouble in the meantime. Fantasy owners holding onto Gordon have a tough decision to make. In competitive leagues, it will be difficult to burn a roster spot for 11 more weeks but having Gordon during the stretch run is enticing. It's going to depend on one's league and roster makeup.
Posted: 9/12/2014 5:06pm ET
Huddle Up: That's still most of the fantasy season, but that would leave him as a factor for the stretch run and playoffs. Continue to hold on to him if you can spare the space.
Posted: 9/12/2014 2:37pm ET
Huddle Up: Hey, congrats to all those who have held on to Gordon as it's looking like you could have the services of 2013's top fantasy WR for this season's homestretch.
Posted: 9/6/2014 9:10pm ET
Huddle Up: Gordon is worth picking up and stashing if he's still available in your league. Gordon's on-field production makes him worth rolling the dice on at better than a 50-50 chance to play.
Posted: 8/28/2014 3:42pm ET
Huddle Up: The big problem is that Gordon is still under contract with the Browns, so it's back to the drawing board for the wideout and his legal team.
Posted: 8/27/2014 3:37pm ET
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.
Posted: 8/27/2014 2:01pm ET
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.
Posted: 8/26/2014 3:40pm ET
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
Posted: 8/20/2014 10:33am ET
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.
Posted: 8/19/2014 5:41pm ET
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.
