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.

The NFL is reinstating Seahawks WR Josh Gordon, Fox Sports' Jay Glazer reports. Glazer adds that Gordon will be eligible to play in the final 2 games of the season, so it sounds like it's not an immediate reinstatement. The timing means that you can continue to ignore Gordon in redraft leagues. Perhaps he'll make an impact in the playoffs for Seattle.

The Seahawks have released WR Paul Richardson, less than a week after re-signing him. That timeline makes it surprising. But since bringing Richardson back, Seattle has also re-signed WR Josh Gordon and re-worked WR David Moore's contract. So it's not ultimately a shock to see Richardson left out. Phillip Dorsett also remains in the WR3 picture. And, of course, we're talking about 1 of the league's most run-leaning offenses. So none of these wideouts is likely to make a significant fantasy impact.

The Seahawks have re-signed WR Josh Gordon. The 29-year-old played 5 games for Seattle last year, tallying just 7 catches on 11 targets for 139 yards. He didn't catch more than 2 balls in any of those 5 outings. Gordon is still waiting to hear back from the league on his application for reinstatement, so it's unclear when he'll actually be available. We'll also need to see how the back of the Seahawks' WR depth chart shakes out between Gordon, Phillip Dorsett and Paul Richardson -- but none will be a viable fantasy option without an injury to Tyler Lockett or D.K. Metcalf.

The Seahawks will try to re-sign WR Josh Gordon if he's reinstated by the league, according to ESPN's John Clayton. Gordon spent 5 games with Seattle last year, totaling 7 catches for 139 yards. He'd have a good shot to slide in as the #3 WR behind Tyler Lockett and D.K. Metcalf this season -- but would likely struggle for reliable fantasy value in the Seahawks' run-leaning offense. Still, there are worse late-round fliers in best-ball drafts. Gordon filed for reinstatement a month ago and is hoping to get a decision from the league soon.

Seahawks WR Josh Gordon has been suspended indefinitely for violating the league's policies on performance-enhancing substances and substances of abuse. It's his 5th suspension. This could and probably should be the end of Gordon's NFL career. Seattle will go back to WRs David Moore and Malik Turner behind Tyler Lockett and D.K. Metcalf.

Seahawks WR Tyler Lockett injured his lower left leg late in Monday night's game against the 49ers and missed overtime. HC Pete Carroll revealed afterwards that Lockett was hospitalized for a "really bad" contusion. “It will be OK but it’s a pretty severe situation for right now," Carroll said. “I think there was a lot of swelling ... We’re ahead of it so we should be in good shape.” We'll keep a close eye on this, but Lockett has a Week 11 bye to heal up. His absence could push WR Josh Gordon into an expanded role.

Seahawks WR Josh Gordon is active for tonight's game against the 49ers. We'll be keeping a close eye on how big a role he plays in his team debut, but he's nothing more than a DFS flier tonight.

Seahawks HC Pete Carroll said there's a "good chance" WR Josh Gordon plays against the 49ers on Monday night. "He did really well," Carroll said of Gordon's first week of practice with the team. "He was very impressive in terms of picking stuff up, studying overtime. He fit in really well. He's a really good athlete. You can really tell that he's got a lot of potential to be a big-time player, so it was fun to see him on the practice field. He did a nice job." We'll see exactly how big a role Gordon plays after joining the team a little over a week ago, but he shouldn't be in Week 10 fantasy lineups.

The Seahawks have claimed WR Josh Gordon off waivers. It's an interesting landing spot, to say the least. We'll see when Gordon is healthy enough and comfortable enough in Seattle's offense to play, but he's worth a stash in deeper fantasy leagues.

The Patriots are releasing WR Josh Gordon from IR, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. We'll see where he lands and then when he's able to return from his knee injury. Gordon is worth stashing in deeper fantasy leagues but isn't a great bet to re-emerge as a bankable fantasy asset down the stretch.

The Patriots have placed WR Josh Gordon on IR with 2 bone bruises to his knee. The injuries are reportedly minor, though, and New England plans to release Gordon as soon as he's healthy. NFL Network's Mike Garafolo hears that could happen "soon," which would free up Gordon to sign elsewhere. With his status in limbo, he might be worth holding on to in fantasy leagues with deeper benches. But he's also droppable if you need immediate help. The Patriots, meanwhile, will move forward with Julian Edelman, Phillip Dorsett and the newly acquired Mohamed Sanu as their top 3 WRs. They're also expected to get 1st-round rookie WR N'Keal Harry back in Week 9.
