    Cleveland Browns exclusive rights free-agent WR Josh Gordon signed his tender Monday, April 16.

    Huddle Up: Gordon will be a WR2 with a whole lot of risk in fantasy this season.

  • Posted: 3/13/2018 9:19am ET

    Cleveland Browns exclusive-rights free agent Josh Gordon received a one-year tender worth $790,000 on Tuesday, March 13. He will not be able to negotiate with other teams as a result.

    Huddle Up: Gordon's options were limited as an exclusive-rights free agent, but this tender does give him the right to sign a long-term deal down the road. If he has truly moved past his off-field problems, he should have no problem doing so. He has long had fantasy WR1 upside, but owners would be wise to draft him more like a low-end WR2 or WR3 given his history.

    Cleveland Browns head coach Hue Jackson said that he wants WR Josh Gordon to remain with the club 'for a long time,' adding that he's been having a 'really good offseason.' Jackson also believes Gordon 'is going to have a great year for us.'

    Huddle Up: There can be no denying Gordon's immense talents and the 26-year-old reminded everyone of that at times in his five games this past season following his reinstatement. While his overall numbers weren't of the spectacular kind, that could mainly be attributed to poor quarterback play, which the team will address as its top priority this offseason. Gordon is worth watching in all drafts for his WR2 potential.

  • Posted: 2/21/2018 3:12pm ET

    Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon will be an exclusive rights free agent this offseason because he did not play in enough games this season for an accrued season.

    Huddle Up: Gordon will not be allowed to talk with other teams, so he will be with the Browns for at least one more seasons. He recorded 335 yards and one touchdown in five games this season and should be a focal point in the passing game in 2018. He can be at least a No. 3 receiver in fantasy leagues.

  • Posted: 12/24/2017 1:26pm ET

    Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon caught two passes for 19 yards against the Chicago Bears in Week 16.

    Huddle Up: Gordon was targeted eight times during the game but was not able to be a big factor in the passing game. He should continue to receive a lot of targets next week against the Pittsburgh Steelers and could be a No. 3 receiver or a flex option.

  • Posted: 12/17/2017 2:49pm ET

    Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon caught five passes for 47 yards against the Baltimore Ravens in Week 15.

    Huddle Up: Gordon has received 28 targets in the three games since being added to the roster and will continue to see plenty of targets in the last two games. He can be at least a No. 3 fantasy receiver next week against the Chicago Bears.

  • Posted: 12/10/2017 4:18pm ET

    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.

    Huddle Up: 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.

  • Posted: 12/3/2017 4:35pm ET

    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.

    Huddle Up: 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.

  • Posted: 11/30/2017 10:38am ET

    Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon will start, as expected, against the Los Angeles Chargers in Week 13, according to head coach Hue Jackson.

    Huddle Up: 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.

  • Posted: 11/26/2017 7:19am ET

    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.

    Huddle Up: 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.

  • Posted: 11/22/2017 11:29am ET

    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.

    Huddle Up: 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.

  • Posted: 11/16/2017 11:21am ET

    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.'

    Huddle Up: 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.

  • Posted: 11/7/2017 11:37am ET

    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.

    Huddle Up: 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.

  • Posted: 11/1/2017 3:35pm ET

    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.

    Huddle Up: 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.

  • Posted: 10/31/2017 10:28pm ET

    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.

    Huddle Up: 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.

  • Posted: 10/31/2017 11:19am ET

    Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon may be reinstated by the NFL soon, and it's possible the Browns are willing trade the rights to him before the traded deadline Tuesday, Oct. 31, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: This is an interesting development considering Gordon has not played this year and all the off-field trouble he's been in in his young career. The talent is obviously there, though, and Gordon is still young at 26 years old. It would take a brave team to take another chance on Gordon. If he is traded, and reinstated, then he becomes a top waiver wire priority.

  • Posted: 10/3/2017 11:14am ET

    Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon has not yet applied for reinstatement, a source said Tuesday, Oct. 3.

    Huddle Up: It's uncertain if Gordon will apply for reinstatement soon and how it will go when he does try. He has a long way to go before potentially seeing game action and therefore he warrants no fantasy consideration at this time.

  • Posted: 8/17/2017 11:16am ET

    Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon's potential reinstatement to the NFL is not being actively considered, according to commissioner Roger Goodell. Gordon is eligible to re-apply for reinstatement in September after being denied reinstatement three months ago.

    Huddle Up: Gordon has serious recurring off-field issues. He can be avoided altogether in fantasy leagues until at least next season, at which point he may still not be reinstated.
