Josh Gordon Fantasy Football News | Shark Bites

Shark Bites are the latest fantasy football news & NFL updates. Draft Sharks has been in business since 1999. And when we started, redraft was the dominant form of fantasy football. Check out what we've learned about this most basic form of fantasy football along the way.

The Chiefs are releasing WR Josh Gordon, NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reports. Gordon, now 31, remains well off the redraft radar and is cuttable from dynasty rosters.

The Chiefs on Tuesday re-signed WR Josh Gordon ahead of free agency. The wideout -- who will turn 31 in mid-April -- caught only 5 passes (among 14 targets) in 12 games for the 2021 Chiefs. Odds remain against him becoming a fantasy factor.

The Chiefs waived WR Josh Gordon. The team is hoping to re-sign him to the practice squad if he clears waivers, according to NFL Network's Tom Pelissero. Gordon caught just 5 balls in 12 regular-season appearances and was a healthy scratch for Kansas City's first 2 playoff games. The 30-year-old's dynasty value has just about vanished.

Chiefs WR Josh Gordon is a healthy scratch for tonight's Wild Card game vs. the Steelers. Tyreek Hill, Byron Pringle, Demarcus Robinson and Mecole Hardman will operate as Kansas City's top 4 WRs.

Chiefs WR Josh Gordon has landed on the COVID list after a positive test Monday. That almost certainly knocks him out for Thursday night's game against the Chargers. Gordon ran 4th among Chiefs WRs in snaps Sunday against the Raiders, just 1 snap ahead of Mecole Hardman. So his absence doesn't make much of a fantasy impact but probably helps Hardman and Demarcus Robinson a little.

Chiefs WR Josh Gordon has been promoted from the practice squad to the active roster. It makes him eligible to play vs. the Bills on Sunday night -- but doesn't guarantee that he will. Gordon shouldn't be in Week 5 fantasy lineups regardless, but he's a fine stash in deeper leagues. He's reportedly impressed since joining the team a week ago.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport hears that Chiefs WR Josh Gordon impressed in his 1st week with the team and could be promoted to the active roster next week. "He was described looking like a No. 1 receiver, 230 pounds and fast," Rapoport writes. "One source said you would never know he's 30. He has really flashed in practice." It's an encouraging report on a guy who hasn't played in an NFL game since December 2019. We'll continue to keep a close eye on Gordon but would still only be stashing him in fantasy leagues of 12+ teams.

WR Josh Gordon is planning to sign with the Chiefs, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. It's bullish news for Gordon because of the landing spot, of course -- but also because he signed just a few days after being reinstated. That suggests there was plenty of interest in the 30-year-old. Gordon hasn't played since December 2019, so he's a total wild card. But this landing spot makes him worth a potential stash at least in deeper fantasy leagues.

Update: Gordon is being signed to Kansas City's practice squad for now, "with the goal of elevating him at some point when he gets up to speed," per NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.

WR Josh Gordon has been reinstated by the NFL and is eligible to play as early as Week 4, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. Gordon is 30 now and hasn't played since December 2019. We'll see if a team takes a shot on him but wouldn't bother adding Gordon to fantasy rosters right now.
