Description: Browns receiver Josh Gordon is set to appeal his suspension at an Aug. 1 hearing in New York, according to Ian Rapoport.
Insight: We think there is little chance of his one-year suspension being reduced, but at least the final answer will come before most fantasy leagues hold their draft. Gordon was a fantasy stud last season catching 87 balls for 1,646 yards and nine touchdowns.
 
7/5/2014 3:33:00 PM
Description: Browns receiver Josh Gordon has reportedly been arrested for DWI in Raleigh, North Carolina.
Insight: If Gordon was hoping to catch a break from the league concerning his upcoming suspension he's certaining not behaving like a man who cares about his NFL future. Fantasy owners should not plan on Gordon stepping onto the field during the 2014-15 season.

Description: According to wkyc.com, Browns receiver Josh Gordon was issued a speeding ticket for going 74 mph in a 60-mph zone and his passenger was given a citation for possession of marijuana on May 25.
Insight: Obviously not a good move for a guy who is facing a one-year suspension for failing a drug test for marijuana and is hoping the NFL shows some leniency when it hears his appeal.
 
5/28/2014 3:44:00 PM
Description: According to the Cleveland Plain Dealer, Browns receiver Josh Gordon was already in Stage 3 of the NFL's substance-abuse program when he failed his latest drug test.

Description: ESPN's Adam Schefter expects Josh Gordon's suspension to last the entire 2014 season.
Insight: That's not what fantasy owners want to hear. Gordon (87 catches, 1,646 yards, 9 TD in 2013) has filed an appeal but it sounds like the Browns are expecting the worst. His absence cerainly clouds quarterback Johnny Manziel's fantasy value heading into his rookie season.
 
5/12/2014 8:38:00 PM
Description: Peter King of Sports Illustrated believes Josh Gordon's suspension will fall somewhere in the range of 8-to-16 games.
Insight: Even if the ban is reduced to eight games on appeal, Gordon will still be missing a significant chunk of the season. Drug issues have followed Gordon throughout his career as this is the fifth drug test he's failed since college.
 
5/9/2014 6:19:00 PM
Description: According to ESPN's Outside the Lines, Browns receiver Josh Gordon could face a season-long suspension after failing a second drug test, this time for marijuana.
Insight: Cleveland was feeling good after the team drafted QB Johnny Manziel with the 22nd-overall pick Thursday night, but it didn't last. Gordon was suspended the first two games last year for using cough syrup that contained codeine, a banned substance in the NFL, and he was also suspended from Baylor's football team for failing a drug test for marijuana in 2011. He he ended up breaking out with 87 catches, 1,646 yards and nine touchdowns in 14 games last season.

Description: Browns wideout Josh Gordon set a team record for receiving yards in a season by racking up 151 yards through the air Sunday in a one-point loss to New England.
Insight: Gordon has been the best receiver in football over the last month, catching at least 125 yards worth of passes in each of his last four contests. Even superstar corner Aqib Talib was no match for Gordon on Sunday. Don't expect Gordon to slow down next week against Chicago.

Description: Browns receiver Josh Gordon is a must-start in Week 4 given Cincinnati's injuries in the secondary.
Insight: Gordon, who hauled in 10 catches for 146 yards and a touchdown in his 2013 debut following a two-game suspension, was expected to face a tough matchup in Bengals shutdown cornerback Leon Hall. However, Hall, CB Dre Kirkpatrick and S Reggie Nelson are all doubtful for Week 4.
 
9/26/2013 11:40:00 AM
Description: According to the Akron Beacon-Journal, Browns receiver Josh Gordon said coach Rob Chudzinski told him the team does not plan to trade him.
Insight: After missing the first two games due to a suspension, Gordon caught 10 passes for 146 yards and a touchdown on 19 targets Sunday against the Vikings, but the Browns current regime is not the one that picked him in the second round of the 2012 supplemental draft. In fact, current Browns GM Mike Lombardi criticized the selection as a "waste" when he was an analyst for the NFL Network. If the Browns receive an offer they like, they won't hesitate to move the troubled Gordon, who is one infraction away from a season-long suspension.
 
9/22/2013 6:02:00 PM
Description: Josh Gordon thrived in his return to the lineup Sunday versus the Vikings.
Insight: The second-year Browns wideout tortured Minnesota all day, finishing with 146 yards on ten catches. Gordon was a late-round flier in most drafts because of his two-game suspension but those who kept him have to be pleased with the results so far.
 
9/22/2013 11:18:00 AM
Description: ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that the Browns are willing to trade Josh Gordon and Greg Little.
Insight: The new Browns regime is trying to burn down everything the previous group built in a short time. As an analyst for the NFL Network, new Browns VP of player personnel Mike Lombardi criticized Cleveland's selection of Gordon in the second round of the 2012 supplemental draft, so it's not surprising that he is putting the talented but troubled receiver on the block. As for Greg Little, he has the worst hands of any receiver in the NFL and isn't likely to draw much interest.
 
9/16/2013 1:46:00 PM
Description: Browns receiver Josh Gordon, who was for suspended two games for violating the NFL's substance-abuse policy, is now eligible to return to the field for Week 3 versus Minnesota.
Insight: The second-year receiver has the talent to be a solid fantasy player but will have to grow up. He caught 50 balls for 805 yards and five TDs last season.
 
7/24/2013 3:20:00 PM
Description: Browns receiver Josh Gordon, who has been suspended two games for violating the NFL's substance-abuse policy, won't get many more chances to prove he can be a reliable part of the team, according to a Mary Kay Cabot report.
Insight: Gordon has the talent to be a solid fantasy player and Browns' teammate, but he'll have to show the team he's matured both on and off the field. Gordon tested positive for marijuana multiple times in college and now is missing the first two games this season because of a positive codeine test. Fantasy owners shouldn't want to gamble a high or even middle pick for a player with this kind of track record.
