Recent Player News

  • Posted: 9/17/2018 4:53pm ET

    New England Patriots WR Josh Gordon (hamstring) will be healthy enough to play in the team's Week 3 game, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: Gordon will need to learn a new offense but should still have a role this week against the Detroit Lions. Owners could consider him at least a flex option in leagues but should not expect big numbers.

  • Posted: 9/17/2018 1:30pm ET

    Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon was traded to the New England Patriots Monday, Sept. 17, in exchange for a fifth-round pick, according to sources. If Gordon is not active for 10 games the Patriots will receive a late-round pick.

    Huddle Up: With Gordon gone Jarvis Landry, Antonio Callaway, Rashard Higgins and David Njoku will all benefit. Higgins and Callaway should be available on waivers and are both worth picking up. Landry maintains his status as a low-end PPR WR1 to high-end PPR WR2.

  • Posted: 9/17/2018 1:25pm ET

    Updating a previous report, Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon was acquired by the New England Patriots Monday, Sept. 17, in exchange for a fifth-round pick, according to sources. If Gordon is not active for 10 games the Patriots will receive a late-round pick.

    Huddle Up: The fresh start Gordon needed has arrived quickly. Gordon's presence all but eliminates Phillip Dorsett's value. As stated earlier, Gordon may need some time to acclimate to his new team, so he's not startable right away. Once he's seeing regular snaps he'll be a WR3 consideration.

  • Posted: 9/17/2018 12:12pm ET

    Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon is close to being traded to the New England Patriots, according to a source. There is no official agreement, but signs are positive.

    Huddle Up: The Patriots need a wide receiver, especially for the next two weeks while Julian Edelman finishes his suspension. Gordon is one of the most talented receivers in the league, but his off-field struggles are well documented. If/when he does sign, it's best to wait a week before starting him in order to see how the Patriots use him and how much he plays.

  • Posted: 9/17/2018 5:29am ET

    Updating previous reports, Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon (hamstring) has received interest from eight to 10 teams about acquiring him, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: Gordon should still be rostered, but it may be a few weeks for him to have an impact with his new team depending on how serious the hamstring injury is.

  • Posted: 9/16/2018 8:06am ET

    Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon is interested in joining the Dallas Cowboys in a possible trade or a free-agent signing, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: Gordon likely would be the top receiving option if he joins the Cowboys over the next week. His potential makes him a No. 2 receiver in all leagues as long as he does not have any off-field problems.

  • Posted: 9/16/2018 8:05am ET

    Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon is interested in joining the San Francisco 49ers in a possible trade or a free-agent signing, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: Gordon will be with another team next week and likely would be a top three receiver for the 49ers if he joins them. He is a risky option because of his off-field issues but can be a No. 2 fantasy receiver in all leagues because of his potential.

  • Posted: 9/15/2018 4:38pm ET

    Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon will be released Monday, Sept. 17.

    Huddle Up: Gordon has had his share of off-field issues, but this move comes out of relatively nowhere. He had already been ruled out for Week 2, but one wonders if he's struggling with non-football issues more than he's let on. In the meantime, Rashard Higgins and Antonio Callaway will see more repetitions at wide receiver, but the Browns could bring back Dez Bryant for another visit. If there's nothing deeper to be delved from the release, then perhaps another team will give Gordon, who is still only 27 years old, another chance.

  • Posted: 9/15/2018 10:53am ET

    Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon (hamstring) has been ruled out for the team's Week 2 game.

    Huddle Up: Gordon was able to play in Week 1 but appears to have aggravated his hamstring injury. Rashard Higgins and Antonio Callaway probably will receive more playing time but neither is a must-start in fantasy leagues. Jarvis Landry and David Njoku are the only Browns pass catchers that could be in most fantasy lineups.

  • Posted: 9/11/2018 11:17am ET

    Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon is listed as a starter opposite WR Jarvis Landry heading into Week 2.

    Huddle Up: Gordon saw just three targets in his long-awaited return, but his lone catch was a touchdown. Those three targets will assuredly increase this week, especially in what should be a positive game script for the passing game versus the New Orleans Saints. Don't start Gordon as a WR1 just yet, though. He's more serviceable as a low-end WR2 or flex.

  • Posted: 9/10/2018 6:50am ET

    Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon played in 69 of the team's 89 offensive snaps, for 78 percent of the offense, in Week 1.

    Huddle Up: He only had three targets, and one catch for 17 yards and a score, but he was only supposed to play about 20 snaps. Gordon will have to produce more as a WR2 in fantasy, but the play count is encouraging.

  • Posted: 9/9/2018 4:35pm ET

    Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon had just one catch in Week 1 against the Pittsburgh Steelers, but that catch was good for a 17-yard touchdown.

    Huddle Up: Gordon made a highlight-reel leaping catch with 1:58 left in regulation, tip-toeing inside the pylon to help the Browns force overtime. Fantasy owners have to be pleased with the score, but want to see more targets. He could be more productive in New Orleans next week, as the rain was limiting the downfield passing game in Cleveland.

  • Posted: 9/9/2018 9:13am ET

    Updating a previous report, Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon is expected to be on the field for around 20 offense snaps in Week 1.

    Huddle Up: Gordon is coming off a hamstring injury and missed most of the preseason, so he is being worked into the offense slowly. He has the ability to make big plays and can still be a No. 3 receiver or flex option in fantasy leagues.

  • Posted: 9/7/2018 6:35pm ET

    Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon is a 'big-time talent,' according to offensive coordinator Todd Haley, and Haley said he hopes Gordon is 'involved a lot' against the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 1.

    Huddle Up: Even if Gordon plays limited snaps, his ability to produce big plays makes a worth starting as a WR3.

  • Posted: 9/7/2018 11:44am ET

    Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon (hamstring) fully participated in practice Friday, Sept. 7, and is not on the injury report for Week 1.

    Huddle Up: Gordon will be on a snap count but should be a focal point in the passing game. He has the ability to make big plays during games and can be a No. 2 or No. 3 receiver in all leagues this week.

  • Posted: 9/6/2018 1:14pm ET

    Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon (hamstring) was limited during practice Thursday, Sept. 6.

    Huddle Up: Gordon is expected to play in Week 1 but likely will see limited snaps after missing the entire preseason. He has the ability to make big plays and should still be considered a No. 2 or No. 3 receiver this week even without a normal workload.

  • Posted: 9/5/2018 12:25pm ET

    Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon (hamstring) took part as a limited participant in practice Wednesday, Sept. 5.

    Huddle Up: Head coach Hue Jackson already confirmed Gordon would not start in Week 1, although the receiver is expected to play. Don't build your weekly or DFS lineup around him this week. Consider him more of a WR4 with upside, as his snaps could potentially be limited.

  • Posted: 9/5/2018 9:47am ET

    Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon (hamstring) said he feels 100 percent and is without limitations Wednesday, Sept. 5. He thinks he can have a big impact against the Pittsburgh Steelers even without starting.

    Huddle Up: Gordon is worth consideration for your WR3 spot this week, but he's a boom-or-bust option.

  • Posted: 9/3/2018 8:28am ET

    Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon (hamstring) is practicing Monday, Sept. 3.

    Huddle Up: Gordon is a boom-or-bust WR2 in fantasy that might be a worse Week 1 play than that.

  • Posted: 8/30/2018 1:26pm ET

    Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon (hamstring) traveled with the team for their final preseason game Thursday, Aug. 30, but will not play in the game.

    Huddle Up: Owners will need to monitor his practice participation next week to see if he is in any danger of missing Week 1. He has the talent to be a low-end No. 1 or a No. 2 receiver in all fantasy leagues if he is healthy.

  • Posted: 8/28/2018 8:47am ET

    Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon (hamstring) is doing individual work on the side Tuesday, Aug. 28. Head coach Hue Jackson says Gordon has been catching passes and doing other light training while getting closer to practicing.

    Huddle Up: Gordon remains a combustible WR2 in fantasy. He still has time to be ready for the season, but he has had no training camp.

  • Posted: 8/27/2018 9:41am ET

    Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon (hamstring) will not start Week 1 even if he is completely healthy but will play in the game, according to head coach Hue Jackson.

    Huddle Up: Gordon has missed most of the preseason, so he probably will be eased into the offense in the first few games. He has the talent to be a low-end No. 1 or a No. 2 receiver, but owners may want to lower expectations early in the season.

  • Posted: 8/25/2018 1:43pm ET

    Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon (hamstring) probably will not be able to play in the final preseason game because of his hamstring injury, but the team is hoping Gordon will be ready for Week 1.

    Huddle Up: Gordon may be eased back in to practice over the next week since he has been away from the team. He should be a low-end No. 1 or a No. 2 receiver in leagues this season, but owners should keep an eye on his status over the next few days.

  • Posted: 8/25/2018 11:20am ET

    Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon, activated from the Active/Non-Footbal Injury list earlier in the day, was working out on a side field during the open portion of practice Saturday, Aug. 25. He has been cleared to practice, but is dealing with a tight hamstring.

    Huddle Up: Gordon enters the 2018 campaign with a rather cloudy outlook. On one hand, he has all the potential in the world and could be a major fantasy asset. However, there is always the risk of an off-field situation cropping up. When he is on the field he is a low-end WR1 or must-start WR2 across all formats. Just plan to have plenty of depth on hand in the event of trouble.

  • Posted: 8/25/2018 9:07am ET

    Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon was activated from the Active/Non-Football Injury list Saturday, Aug. 25, and has been cleared for all football activities including games.

    Huddle Up: Gordon could play in the final preseason game so he can get some game repetitions and will be ready for Week 1 as long as he is healthy. He should be considered a low-end No. 1 or a No. 2 receiver in all fantasy leagues.

  • Posted: 8/24/2018 1:12pm ET

    Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon has been cleared to participate in walkthroughs during practice starting Saturday, Aug. 25.

    Huddle Up: Gordon is slowing working his way back to the field and appears to have a solid chance to be ready for Week 1. Gordon has the talent to be at least a No. 2 fantasy receiver in all leagues.

  • Posted: 8/23/2018 2:53pm ET

    Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon may play in the final preseason game if he is cleared to practice in the next few days, according to head coach Hue Jackson.

    Huddle Up: Gordon is still on the Active/Non-Football Injury list but will be cleared after he meets some conditions. Gordon can be considered a No. 1 or No. 2 fantasy receiver when is on the field but does come with some risk because of his off-field issues.

  • Posted: 8/21/2018 7:25pm ET

    Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon should be on the practice field very soon, according to head coach Hue Jackson.

    Huddle Up: Gordon appears to be on track to meet the conditions needed to return to the field. Gordon should be considered a No. 1 or No. 2 fantasy receiver as long as he is on the field but is a risky option because of his previous off-field issues.

  • Posted: 8/20/2018 4:34pm ET

    Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon (personal) will not be active for Week 3 of the preseason. Gordon remains on the Active/Non-Football Illness list and has not resumed practicing.

    Huddle Up: Gordon's situation is ongoing. It has already been reported that he has a chance to play Week 1, but his long-term potential is obviously risky. Feel free to grab him as a mid-range WR2, but have a contingency plan in place.

  • Posted: 8/19/2018 9:33am ET

    Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon has a chance to be ready for Week 1, according to head coach Hue Jackson.

    Huddle Up: Gordon has about three weeks to return to the field and prepare for the start of the season. He has shown that he can be a No. 1 or No. 2 fantasy receiver when he is on the field but will be a risky option for Week 1.

  • Posted: 8/18/2018 10:38am ET

    Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon is still in the substance abuse program and will not be allowed to participate in practice until certain conditions are met, according to NFL spokesperson Brian McCarthy.

    Huddle Up: Owners will need to keep an eye on the situation to see when he will be able to return to the field. He should be a No. 2 fantasy receiver in all leagues when he plays.

  • Posted: 8/18/2018 9:18am ET

    Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon has ended his leave of absence and has rejoined the team. General manager John Dorsey said Gordon will initially participate in meetings and conditioning and then will be eased into football activities.

    Huddle Up: Gordon probably will not receive much preseason playing time but should be ready for the start of the regular season. He is one of the better receivers in the NFL when he is on the field and can be a solid No. 2 receiver in all fantasy leagues.

  • Posted: 8/9/2018 3:21pm ET

    Cleveland Browns general manager John Dorsey said there is still 'no updated timetable' for WR Josh Gordon's return to the team.

    Huddle Up: There's arguably nothing worse than hearing when a potential impact player has 'no timetable' right around fantasy draft season, which essentially puts Gordon in limbo as it pertains to average draft position. While the 27-year-old may still have the ability to carve out WR2 or WR3 value this year, he remains a risk right now due to the uncertainty of his return.

  • Posted: 8/7/2018 2:34pm ET

    Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon will remain on the Reserve/Did Not Report list because he will still receive an accrued season despite being on the list. There is an exception to the rule if a player does not report because of an illness or hardship.

    Huddle Up: Gordon is expected to report at some point, but the timetable is still uncertain at this point. Gordon can be at least No. 2 fantasy receiver when he is on the field, but there is some risk with him because of his uncertain status.

  • Posted: 8/6/2018 9:07am ET

    Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon is expected to be moved from the Reserve/Did Not Report list to the Active/Non-Football Injury list in order to prevent Gordon from losing an accrued season toward free agency, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: Gordon is still expected to return to the team at some point, but it is not known if he will report before the start of the regular season. He has shown he can be a No. 2 fantasy receiver when he plays, but owners will need other players ready to use in case Gordon misses more time.

  • Posted: 8/4/2018 1:05pm ET

    Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon has been in communication with WR Rashard Higgins, and Higgins said that Gordon is in good spirits. General manager John Dorsey said he still believes that Gordon will return to the team this season.

    Huddle Up: Owners will need to continue to monitor the situation to see when Gordon reports to the team. He has shown that he can be a No. 1 fantasy receiver when he plays but is currently a risky option because of his uncertain status.

  • Posted: 7/25/2018 11:36pm ET

    Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon will be required to make a written request to the team for reinstatement, and Commissioner Roger Goodell would need to approve it, according to a league source. GM John Dorsey, who would not comment when asked if Gordon could be facing a suspension, did acknowledge on Wednesday, July 25, that he doesn't know when Gordon will rejoin the team.

    Huddle Up: There's a whole lot not being said right now, and it's starting to muddy the waters as to Gordon's outlook for 2018. His upside is obviously enticing, and if things get resolved in a timely fashion he's a borderline top-20 option. The longer this drags out, however, the bigger the downside becomes. This is definitely a story to keep an eye on given Gordon's history and the lack of concrete information available.

  • Posted: 7/25/2018 11:52am ET

    Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon (personal) is expected to play at some point during the 2018 season, according to general manager John Dorsey. Gordon will be placed on the Did Not Report list instead of the Non-Football Injury list.

    Huddle Up: Owners will need to monitor the situation to see when Gordon will be able to report to training camp. He is an attractive fantasy option when he is on the field, but his value may take a dip because of this situation. He can be considered a No. 2 fantasy receiver if he is ready for Week 1.

  • Posted: 7/24/2018 6:16am ET

    Updating previous reports, Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon is seeking additional counseling to deal with his mental health and anxiety, sources told ESPN's Adam Schefter. Gordon has regularly been in touch with his counselors and was told to take the extra time in a proactive move, sources said.

    Huddle Up: If I'm on the fence about drafting Gordon, this actually gives me more optimism that the obstacles of his past are no longer immovable. He's going as a WR2 in leagues, and he's still a boom-or-bust project. However, the talent is clearly still there for more.

  • Posted: 7/23/2018 9:23am ET

    Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon is in no danger of being released even though he will not be present for the start of training camp because of his treatment plan, according to a source. Gordon performed well during offseason workouts and has the support of the team in his recovery.

    Huddle Up: It is not known when Gordon will report to training camp but will continue to be a big part of the team's passing game this season. He can be a solid No. 2 receiver in most fantasy leagues as long as he is ready for Week 1.

  • Posted: 7/23/2018 7:22am ET

    Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon tweeted Monday, July 23, that he will not report to training camp as part of his overall health and treatment plan laid out by the team.

    Huddle Up: The 27-year-old still very much looks the part. He is a boom-or-bust option as a WR2 in fantasy.

  • Posted: 7/6/2018 6:29pm ET

    Cleveland Browns WR Jarvis Landry called WR Josh Gordon 'unstoppable' after watching him during spring practices. 'The size that he has and his ability to be able to get in and out of cuts, I think that's one of the most impressive things I've recognized and noticed about him,' Landry said.

    Huddle Up: Gordon's production on the field has never been a problem, but he has had more than his fair share of trouble off the field. He is far from a save pick, but if he's available as a WR3, the upside is worth the gamble.

  • Posted: 6/9/2018 9:26am ET

    Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon could be the next player in line for a contract extension, in the opinion of ESPNCleveland.com's Tony Grossi. He is scheduled to make $790,001 in 2018 and will be a restricted free agent next offseason.

    Huddle Up: Gordon returned to the field last season after a long suspension and played well in his limited time. He has a chance to be the No. 1 receiver for the Browns this season and will see a significant amount of targets. He can be at least a No. 3 receiver in most fantasy leagues in 2018.

  • Posted: 4/16/2018 6:26am ET

    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.

  • Posted: 3/2/2018 12:04am ET

    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.
