Josh Gordon Fantasy Football News, Notes, Rumors and Statistics
Sun, 09 Jun 2013 08:10:45 -0700
Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon could face a one-year suspension if he fails another drug test because he already has two drug violations. His two-game suspension for codeine was his second violation, which means he had another violation at some point. Gordon likely has been moved to State 3 of the NFL's drug program, which could lead to a year suspension if he fails another test.

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.

Fantasy Tip: While this hurts Gordonís value early in the season, Greg Little, Davone Bess and David Nelson will all likely see their roles increase in the first two games. Gordon will still play a large role in the offense when he returns.

The Cleveland Browns won't always have WRs Josh Gordon and Greg Little line up on the outside with Davone Bess in the slot. In early workouts, they've been shifting spots to keep defenses guessing; all have run routes from the inside and outside. Gordon made some of his most dynamic plays last year from the slot. David Nelson (knee) will also be incorporated into this rotation once healthy.
Fantasy Tip: Gordon is an alluring fantasy WR3 in Norv Turner's offense under head coach Rob Chudzinski, but preseason hype will probably make the second-year snare a pricey middle-rounds commodity. He might meet expectations, though, thanks to his deep prowess and Turner's history with big-play wideouts. Little, Bess and Nelson might cap each others' ceiling for production, but they all could serve as solid fantasy depth.

Cleveland Browns offensive players have raved about their first impression of OC Norv Turner's scheme. "Defenses will be shocked to say the least with how much we're running downfield,"WR Josh Gordon said. WR Greg Little said Turner "calls more post and go routes than I've ever run before."ESPN Stats and Information cites that the Browns threw the ball 10 yards or fewer downfield on 73.3 percent of their 2012 passes, and 20 yards or more on only 9 percent.
Fantasy Tip: The Air Coryell elements in Turner's vertical-based game give Gordon and Little some fantasy sleeper potential and should sustain Trent Richardson's RB1 stock. It's a stretch to say Weeden, if he gets the gig, will be anything more than a low-end No. 2 fantasy QB, but he could be useful in the right matchup plays for bye weeks. Keep an eye on the development of talented but unpolished TE Jordan Cameron, as well.

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."
Fantasy Tip: Gordon is coming off a successful rookie season and will be a big part of the passing game this season. Even though the team's quarterback situation is uncertain at this time, Gordon should still be seen as a No. 3 or 4 fantasy wide receiver this season.

Cleveland Browns QB Brandon Weeden indicated that he and WR Josh Gordon are jelling nicely at organized team activities (OTAs). "I have so much confidence in him. I'm not afraid to throw at any corner with him," Weeden said. "He's that good."

Fantasy Tip: The wideout had spurts of brilliance in his deep-threat play last year. This system could help him take another step forward, but with the expected erratic performance under center -- whether it be Brandon Weeden, Jason Campbell or Brian Hoyer -- Gordon can only be trusted as a fantasy WR3, more so in non-PPRs.

The Cleveland Browns are likely out of the running for Arizona Cardinals restricted free-agent QB Brian Hoyer. The quarterback received a second-round tender, meaning Hoyer's new club would have to surrender a second-round pick to sign him. The Browns used their second-round pick for 2013 on WR Josh Gordon in the supplemental draft last year.

New Cleveland Browns vice president of player personnel Michael Lombardi said he will keep an open-mind on QB Brandon Weeden and WR Josh Gordon. Lombardi has been critical of both players on NFL Network. Lombardi said he will watch plenty of film on both players and also watch two days of practice from 2012 before making an evaluation on the players. Lombardi also told Gordon he has nothing to worry about.
