Browns | Josh Gordon makes presence felt

Fri, 26 Aug 2016 21:04:23 -0700

Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon caught two passes for 87 yards and a touchdown in a 30-13 preseason loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Friday, Aug. 26.

Fantasy Tip: Gordon reminded fantasy owners of his upside, and he is a high-risk, high-reward option to target in the middle rounds. He could end up providing WR2 numbers for a discounted price.

Browns | Josh Gordon for a second rounder?

Fri, 26 Aug 2016 08:23:52 -0700

Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon was part of trade discussions, and the package Cleveland sought was a second-round pick and more, according to sources. The team denied listening to offers.

Fantasy Tip: Gordon will miss the first four games, but his masterful 2013 season is still fresh in people's minds. The risk and reward is vast, and while it may be tough to do, he's best pegged as a WR3.

Browns | Browns not trying to trade Josh Gordon

Thu, 25 Aug 2016 17:37:25 -0700

Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon said he wants to stay put, while the team has said there are no plans to trade the 25-year-old wideout. "Listening (to trade offers) is probably a mischaracterization," said Browns executive vice president of football operations Sashi Brown. "We've said all we needed to say about it. We're not looking to trade Josh."

Fantasy Tip: It appears unless an offer comes along that completely wows Browns management, Gordon is indeed going nowhere. He's slated to serve a four-game suspension to begin the campaign, but once he's done with that, Gordon will have WR1 potential. At the same time, owners shouldn't be surprised if he ultimately settles in as a solid WR2 due to the rust he'll probably be dealing with after only playing in five games the past two seasons.

Browns | Josh Gordon set to play Friday

Wed, 24 Aug 2016 09:07:31 -0700

Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon (quadriceps) will play against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Friday, Aug. 26, according to head coach Hue Jackson.

Fantasy Tip: Gordon will miss the first four games of the season due to a suspension, but he projects to return to a starting role once eligible in Week 5. He's two years removed from his dominant 2013 campaign, but fantasy owners shouldn't count out WR2 numbers from Gordon once he's back on the field. He's an enticing risk to take in the middle rounds of drafts once you're comfortable with your core selections.

Browns | Teams calling about Josh Gordon

Tue, 23 Aug 2016 05:52:27 -0700

Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon has had multiple teams call the Browns inquiring about his availability, according to sources. A team source said the Browns aren't looking to trade Gordon, and many around the league believe head coach Hue Jackson is the right coach for Gordon to thrive with.

Fantasy Tip: Gordon will miss the first four games of the season, but Joe Haden raved about how well Gordon looks in practice as if he hasn't missed a step from a long hiatus. Gordon is a low-end WR2, but he makes a dynamite WR3 as the risk and reward are pretty high.

Browns | Josh Gordon runs with starters

Mon, 22 Aug 2016 06:53:58 -0700

Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon (quadriceps) is running with the first-team offense in practice Monday, Aug. 22.

Fantasy Tip: Gordon will be suspended the first four games of the season, and there's some uncertainty as to how productive he'll be after such a long layoff. He's a boom-or-bust WR2 in fantasy, but you can't go wrong with him as a third receiver.

Browns | Josh Gordon likely to play this week

Mon, 22 Aug 2016 05:24:36 -0700

Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon (quadriceps) is likely to play his first preseason game Friday, Aug. 26. "He still looks the exact same and it's just crazy,'' CB Joe Haden said. "He looks a little bigger. I don't know how that happened, but he's still out there running around, looking the same, running his routes, floating. It still looks effortless.''

Browns | Josh Gordon starting to drop weight

Sun, 21 Aug 2016 18:40:44 -0700

Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon was about 10 pounds overweight after missing time with a quadriceps injury, but beat writer Mary Kay Cabot said the weight is already coming off now that he is back practicing.

Fantasy Tip: It remains to be seen if Gordon can return to the form he showed before his career was derailed by suspensions, but there is no denying the talent. He is worth gambling on in the middle rounds as a WR4.

Browns | Josh Gordon may practice

Sun, 21 Aug 2016 09:37:44 -0700

Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon (quadriceps) hopefully will be able to participate in practice this week, according to head coach Hue Jackson.

Fantasy Tip: Gordon has been dealing with the injury throughout training camp but appears to be close to returning. He has been suspended for the first four games of the 2016 season but still has plenty of value in fantasy leagues. He should be considered a No. 3 or No. 4 receiver in most fantasy leagues.

Browns | Josh Gordon unlikely to play

Thu, 18 Aug 2016 11:14:38 -0700

Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon (quadriceps) is not expected to play in the preseason game against the Atlanta Falcons Thursday, Aug. 18.

Fantasy Tip: Gordon has been dealing with a quadriceps injury and only returned to practice earlier in the week, so he probably will need to practice more before playing in a game. Gordon will miss the first four games because of a suspension but should have a decent role when he returns. Gordon has a chance to be a No. 3 or No. 4 receiver in fantasy leagues.
