Shark Bites

Patriots WR Josh Gordon announced Thursday that he's stepping away from the team to focus on his mental health. NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reports that Gordon is facing another indefinite suspension for violating terms of his reinstatement under the substance abuse policy. Don't expect to see him on the field again this season -- and this could spell the end of Gordon's NFL career. It's obviously a significant loss for the Patriots. Gordon has played over 70% of New England offensive snaps since arriving and averaged 6.2 targets per game. WR Chris Hogan would seem like the big winner, but he averaged just 4.7 targets and 2.3 catches over the first 3 weeks before the Gordon trade. We should see some more WR Cordarrelle Patterson, while WR Julian Edelman, TE Rob Gronkowski and RB James White could also pick up an extra target or 2.

Update: Gordon has been suspended indefinitely for violating the terms of his reinstatement under the substance abuse policy. It's the 5th suspension of his NFL career and could result in permanent banishment from the league.

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 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 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.
