NESN's Doug Kyed reports that a return to the Patriots is "still possible" for WR Josh Gordon. He's currently serving an indefinite suspension after turning in diluted drug test samples. Gordon is reportedly in a Gainesville-area rehab center, where his treatment is being paid for by the Pats. We wouldn't consider him any better than 50/50 to get back on an NFL field -- but the 27-year-old is still worth stashing in most dynasty leagues.

The Patriots have placed an original-round tender on restricted free agent WR Josh Gordon. That means he'll get a 1-year, $2.025 million contract from New England if he doesn't sign elsewhere. And signing elsewhere seems unlikely for Gordon, whose status remains uncertain following his latest drug-program violation. The Browns originally spent a 2nd-round pick on Gordon in the supplemental draft, so it looks like any new team would have to give such a pick to New England to sign Gordon.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport hears that it's "possible" WR Josh Gordon is reinstated for the 2019 season. He's suspended indefinitely and will need to show the league he's clean for a "sustained period of time," according to Rapoport. Frankly, we weren't betting on Gordon ever stepping on an NFL field again. So hearing that he could be back next season is surprising. Still just 27, Gordon is worth stashing in most dynasty leagues.

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 Patriots plan to bench WR Josh Gordon for "several series" during tonight's game against the Bills because of tardiness, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. His absence will reportedly amount to about a quarter of action, with "regular playing time after that." This situation isn't likely to change many redraft plans for tonight, but it adds risk to Gordon if you're building any DFS lineups that include tonight's game. Throw in the matchup with CB Tre'Davious White and Gordon's extreme popularity for fantasy, and he looks like a good player to fade in DFS. We'll see if any off-field issues persist for Gordon in New England.

Patriots WR Josh Gordon (hamstring) is questionable for Monday night’s game against the Bills. He put in limited practices all week, though, and played through the exact same setup last week. We’d bet on Gordon playing but will confirm his status Monday evening.
