Gordon has been reinstated from his indefinite suspension


Josh Gordon is back. Again. The talented but star-crossed receiver was granted eligibility and it appears he'll step back into a starting role for the Patriots. Gordon played 11 games for the Patriots last year, but was a part-time decoy in his first two contests. In the nine games as a full-time player, Gordon was WR32 on a per-game basis. With another year in the system, assuming he's in game shape, Gordon becomes one of the ultimate boom-or-bust options. You can make the case for Gordon to deliver Top 20 numbers if he plays 12+ games, but you can just as easily argue for another disappointing bust year considering how his career arc has turned out. It'll be vital to see how quickly Gordon integrates into the offense over the final few weeks of the preseason. (August 17)

Latest News

Patriots | Josh Gordon placed on non-football injury list (Sun Aug 18, 05:03 PM) - New England Patriots WR Josh Gordon was placed on the Non-Football Injury list Sunday, Aug. 18, upon his conditional reinstatement.

Our View: This is basically just a procedural move for the Patriots and was not unexpected. Gordon has been reinstated but the team wants to clear some room for him and will use the NFI list to get him some time to get used to being with the team again. When healthy and motivated, Gordon has WR1 upside and ability. With Gordon reinstated, Fantasy GMs can grab him as a flex play at a current ADP of WR46 (10.03) in 12-team PPR leagues.

Patriots | Josh Gordon's status for CAR game unknown (Sat Aug 17, 08:17 AM) - Updating a previous report, New England Patriots WR Josh Gordon may be in attendance for the team's next preseason game against the Carolina Panthers Thursday, Aug. 22, but it is unknown if he will play.

Patriots | Josh Gordon conditionally reinstated (Fri Aug 16, 06:36 PM) - New England Patriots WR Josh Gordon has been conditionally reinstated after serving an indefinite suspension. He will be allowed to go to the Patriots facility starting Sunday, Aug. 18.

Our View: Gordon applied for reinstatement earlier this month and the league responded quickly. He's back and gives a boost to Tom Brady and the passing game. The Patriots have a clouded WR corps outside of Julian Edelman. If healthy and motivated, Gordon could be a playmaker. There are some hurdles he needs to clear before playing in the preseason but he should be ready for Week 1 of the regular season.
