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.
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.
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.
