Gordon is an elite talent who has had trouble staying clean off the field, but when he is on the field, he is one of the most dynamic receivers in the game. After catching 50 balls during his rookie season, he blew up in 2013 with a 87/1,646/9 statline. In a back-to-back game stretch in 2013, Gordon collected a total of 24 receptions, 498 yards and three touchdowns. The troubled receiver only played five games in 2014 before failing a drug test and being suspended for the remainder of the season. He also sat out the 2015 season with another failed drug test. Hopefully Gordon has distanced himself from “friend” Johnny Manziel and gets his act together, as he is a special talent and a fantasy football monster.
We will break down Josh Gordon’s fantasy outlook in the near future.
Per source, Josh Gordon will be permitted to be with the team during the first four weeks of the season under his conditional reinstatement.
