2018 Outlook
Depth Chart
It seems like every season there's a guy (maybe it's you!) in your fantasy league who drafts Josh Gordon hoping this will be the year Christmas finally comes and they'll get a gift. By some miracle, this actually happened last year, when Gordon returned after a 2+ year absence to show flashes of brilliance. Everything seemed to finally line up for the ultra-talented, baggage laden star receiver. Coming off a five-game stretch to end the season that saw him average 7.9 points per game and 18.6 yards-per-reception, Gordon seemed poised to lead the new look Browns back to the promised land. But the more things change, the more they stay the same, as word came out that Gordon would miss the start of camp for personal health reasons. No one knows exactly what this means, and it seems to change on a daily basis, but it's certainly not good news.

The conundrum with Gordon is that he possesses league winning talent, but you just can't trust him enough to pick him in the upper rounds. I sincerely hope he's back in camp quickly, and if his situation is figured out by the time you draft, go ahead a feel free to invest in him as a WR2. Anything out of the normal with Gordon is going to raise eyebrows, so I don't behoove anyone for being risk averse. But understand this. This guy still has a job because he's an elite talent, and it would be smart to figure out a round you feel comfortable pulling the trigger. Tyrod Taylor is an underrated deep ball thrower and won't do anything to hinder Gordon and before this latest bizarre news I would have been happy to take a risk on his talent, but this recent news is a reminder that Gordon's ceiling is as high as his floor is low, so proceed with caution.

News From The Past 90 Days
Patriots in the market for Demaryius Thomas?
Broncos WR drafted by New England OC in 2010
By: Doug Orth | Mon Oct 29, 9:45 pm

Denver Broncos
Multiple league sources confirm the Patriots have been active on the trade front for weeks. That’s not abnormal for them. One name that’s been discussed is Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas. Thomas was drafted by Pats OC Josh McDaniels when he was HC at Denver. (Mike Girardi on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Thomas has been the subject of trade rumors for at least a few weeks. It's unclear if the Patriots would be eyeing an upgrade on Chris Hogan or Josh Gordon insurance, as it's hard to see the current version of Thomas being an upgrade for New England. In the event Thomas gets traded before Tuesday's 4 pm ET deadline, rookie Courtland Sutton would almost certainly become an immediate high-upside WR3 in most 12-team leagues.

Josh Gordon will miss about a quarter on MNF
Discipline for for tardiness
By: Mike Krueger | Mon Oct 29, 3:45 pm

New England Patriots
Sources: The #Patriots are disciplining WR Josh Gordon during tonight’s game vs. the #Bills because of tardiness. He’s expected to be kept off the field for several series - about a quarter - as they continue to work with & manage him. It’ll be regular playing time after that. (Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: It sounds like he was late for the plane when the team left for Buffalo on Sunday. Gordon owners should remember that he is likely on a short leash in New England but will be in the WR2 conversation whenever he's on the field.

Injury Gronkowski doesn't travel with team
Highly unlikely to play in Week 7
By: Mike Krueger | Sat Oct 20, 4:30 pm

New England Patriots
Patriots’ TE Rob Gronkowski is “highly unlikely” to play Sunday vs. Bears as he didn't travel with the team to Chicago, per source. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Gronkowski has yet be ruled out officially but that will likely come tomorrow. He's battled ankle and back injuries recently and doesn't seem to be his usual "Gronk" self on the field. In his absence, Dwayne Allen will likely start but isn't a viable fantasy options. Julian Edelman Josh Gordon and James White should lead the team in receiving.

Josh Gordon traded to New England
Browns get conditional 5th round pick
By: Mike Krueger | Mon Sep 17, 2:37 pm

New England Patriots
Trade now agreed to: Patriots are sending Cleveland a 5th-round pick and if Josh Gordon isn't active for 10 games, Patriots get back a late-round pick from Browns, sources tell ESPN. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: We learned over the weekend that Gordon was going to be released or traded by the Browns. The Pats will get a 2019 7th round pick if Gordon isn't active for 10 games. Gordon's "hamstring injury" is apparently healed enough to play in Week 3. The impact Gordon will have moving forward is debatable. The Pats have been searching since the pre-season for a difference maker that position but it's often difficult for receivers to fully grasp an offense on short notice. Gordon can be viewed as a WR3 once he's able to play a full complement of snaps.

Injury Browns working to trade Josh Gordon
Showed up late for meeting an "not himself"
By: Mike Krueger | Sun Sep 16, 1:10 am

Cleveland Browns
Multiple league sources believe the Browns will trade WR Josh Gordon before they release him by the Monday date they announced they would let him go. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Gordon was declared out on Saturday with a hamstring injury, even though he practiced all week. Then it was revealed that Cleveland expects to release Gordon on Monday who is rumored to being having trouble off the field. The Browns will be moving forward with Jarvis Landry Rashard Higgins and Antonio Callaway as their top three receivers. Gordon may land somewhere else but his fantasy value is in limbo for the time being.
