Free-agent wide receiver Josh Gordon said he intends to play in 2020 as he works his way back from an indefinite suspension, according to a source. Commissioner Roger Goodell will oversee Gordon's attempt to be reinstated by the league. Gordon played for the Patriots and Seahawks in 2019 but was suspended on Dec. 16 for violating the league's policy on performance-enhancing substances and substances of abuse, which was his sixth NFL suspension since 2013. He'd become an unrestricted free agent for the first time if he is reinstated. The 28-year-old had seven catches for 139 yards in five games for Seattle. He still has plenty of talent, but whether he's reinstated and for whom he's playing will determine his 2020 fantasy value.
Seattle Seahawks WR Josh Gordon (Seahawks) intends to play next season, assuming he is cleared by the league to return after another indefinite suspension, according to ESPN's Jeremy Fowler. Gordon was suspended Dec. 16 for violating the NFL's policies on performance-enhancing substances and substances of abuse - his sixth NFL suspension since the 2013 season.
Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Josh Gordon has been suspended indefinitely by the NFL for violating the league's policy on performance-enhancing substances and substances of abuse. The NFL does not announce what type of substance the player tested positive for, but Gordon has a long history of struggles with substances of abuse. From a football standpoint, this does not seem like a huge blow for Seattle since they still have Tyler Lockett and D.K. Metcalf as their top two receiving threats. From a personal standpoint, this is likely the end of Gordon's career in the NFL as he has been given chance after chance and is unable to stay clean.
Seattle Seahawks WR Josh Gordon has been suspended indefinitely by the NFL for violating the league's policies on performance-enhancing substances and substances of abuse.
Fantasy Spin: Gordon has been suspended multiple times during his career, so his future in the NFL is uncertain at this point. Fantasy players will need to keep an eye on his situation during the offseason to see if he will have a chance to be reinstated. Tyler Lockett and DK Metcalf may see more targets with Gordon out and both are must-start options.
The Seattle Seahawks are never boring, and they're certainly not predictable when it comes to players like wide receiver Josh Gordon. Coming into Sunday's game against Carolina, Gordon had caught all of six passes for the Seahawks so far in four weeks with the team, and he had only been targeted 10 times. In Week 15, Gordon was only targeted once, but it was for a 58-yard bomb that was an absolutely magnificent throw by Russell Wilson. Ever more surprisingly, the newest and rarely-used member of the squad was then tagged late in the third quarter to be the passer in a trick play. Gordon promptly threw a deep interception into double coverage. Maybe they'll have him do an onside kick next week.
Seattle Seahawks WR Josh Gordon had one grab for 58 yards on his only target in Week 15 against the Carolina Panthers and he also threw a pass and was picked off.
Fantasy Spin: Gordon is a big-play receiver capable of being a fantasy contributor. He just still isn't 100 percent part of the offense yet. Avoid him outside of deeper fantasy leagues in Week 16 against the Cardinals.
Seattle Seahawks WR Josh Gordon (knee) fully participate in practice Friday, Dec. 13, and is not on the injury report for Week 15.
Fantasy Spin: Gordon has caught only six passes in four games since joining the Seahawks and likely will not have a big role in the passing game this week. He can be avoided in all fantasy leagues.
Seattle Seahawks LB Mychal Kendricks (hamstring) and RB Rashaad Penny (knee) did not practice Friday, Dec. 13, and have been ruled out for Week 15 versus the Carolina Panthers. TE Luke Willson (hamstring) and CB Shaquill Griffin (hamstring) also did not participate in practice Friday but are listed as questionable. DE Jadeveon Clowney (core, illness) and DE Ziggy Ansah (neck) were limited in practice Friday and are also listed as questionable. DT Al Woods (ankle) did not practice Friday but is expected to play. OT Duane Brown (knee, biceps) was limited Friday but no longer appears on the injury report. FB Nick Bellore (quad), TE Jacob Hollister (thigh), OG Mike Iupati (neck), WR Tyler Lockett (shin), OG Jordan Roos (back), LB Cody Barton (knee, ankle), WR Josh Gordon (knee) and OT George Fant (knee) logged a full practice Friday and have also been removed from the injury report.
Seattle Seahawks WR Josh Gordon (knee) was listed as a full participant on the injury report for Thursday, Dec. 12.
Fantasy Spin: Gordon has been talked up by coaches this week as a player who could break out at any time. He's a very risky flex play against the Carolina Panthers, as he hasn't yet received enough work in the passing game.
Seattle Seahawks WR Josh Gordon 'has done really well,' according to head coach Pete Carroll Wednesday, Dec. 11. Carroll added Gordon 'could have a big game anytime.'
Fantasy Spin: Gordon received five targets against the Los Angeles Rams in Week 14, matching his combined total from his first three games with the Seahawks. He's a high-risk play, but he could be used as a flex play by fantasy managers dealing with injuries.
Seattle Seahawks WR Josh Gordon had two receptions for 34 yards on Sunday, Dec. 8, against the Los Angeles Rams.
Fantasy Spin: Gordon might pay dividends for the Seahawks at some point, but there's no way you can justify playing him in fantasy leagues right now.
Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Josh Gordon remains undefeated this season, but he was mostly a ghost again in Week 13. Gordon's timely release by New England and signing by Seattle means he's yet to personally take a loss, but he's also been relegated to a tiny role. Gordon caught every target slung his way once again, but unfortunately, it was just one. With Seattle's variety of receiving talent, Gordon simply can't find regular enough opportunities to be worth much in fantasy right now. There's some potential that he could become Pete Carroll's weekly star of choice at any moment, but for now, it's looking like the Seahawks are happy rolling with the primaries they've used all season.
Seattle Seahawks WR Josh Gordon had one grab for 10 yards on his only target in Week 13 against the Minnesota Vikings.
Fantasy Spin: Gordon remains useful only in deeper fantasy leagues at this point. The Seahawks travel to meet the Los Angeles Rams in Week 14.
Seattle Seahawks WR Josh Gordon (ankle) practiced in full Saturday, Nov. 30.
Fantasy Spin: Gordon was removed from the injury report and will play his third game with the Seahawks. He still isn't fully incorporated into the offense, as he received just two targets in each of his first two games with the team. He should be left on the bench in all but the deepest leagues.
Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Josh Gordon has played a minor role so far since joining the team, but he could be in for a more central spot on Monday night against Minnesota. Tyler Lockett is one of a number of Seahawks that have been slowed down by an infection going around the locker room, and so he's questionable to play on Monday night. If he's not able to go, D.K. Metcalf will take over the top spot and Gordon will likely be thrust into a No. 2 spot that could be extremely important. With weeks of study of the playbook under his belt, it would be a great time for Gordon to put his stamp on a game.
Seattle Seahawks WR Josh Gordon (ankle) fully participated in practice Friday, Nov. 29.
Fantasy Spin: Gordon has not been a big part in the passing game since joining the Seahawks but may receive a few targets this week. He could be a possible flex option in deeper leagues but probably can be avoided in most leagues.
Seattle Seahawks WR Josh Gordon (ankle) was limited during practice Thursday, Nov. 28.
Fantasy Spin: Gordon has played in two games for the Seahawks and has been limited to three catches and 37 yards. He should be avoided in fantasy leagues until he is more involved in the passing game.
Seattle Seahawks FB Nick Bellore (quad), OT Duane Brown (biceps), TE Luke Willson (hamstring), DT Al Woods (ankle), DE Jadeveon Clowney (core), DT Jarran Reed (ankle), CB Neiko Thorpe (groin), OG Mike Iupati (neck) and LB Shaquem Griffin (illness) did not practice Thursday, Nov. 28. TE Jacob Hollister (toe), WR Tyler Lockett (shin), WR D.K. Metcalf (knee), WR Josh Gordon (ankle), Shaquill Griffin (non-injury), S Quandre Diggs (hamstring), LB K.J. Wright (shoulder, knee) and LB Bobby Wagner (non-injury) were limited. Seattle did not hold a practice Thursday, so all designations are estimates.
Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Josh Gordon was the focus of a lot of media speculation this week as everyone predicted big things for the ex-Patriot. Gordon caught a pair of clutch passes against San Francisco a week after he joined the Seahawks, so everyone figured that with two extra weeks of practice study, he'd likely play a bigger role in Sunday's game against the Eagles. Instead, it appears head coach Pete Carroll used Gordon as a lure. Carroll switched up the whole gameplan, giving Rashaad Penny carries in the backfield instead of Chris Carson, drawing up a flea flicker with a deep pass to Malik Turner instead of Tyler Lockett, and only having Gordon see two passes all day. That's one of the dangers of having a receiver on a team with a lot of options.
Seattle Seahawks WR Josh Gordon posted just one grab for 10 yards on two targets in Week 12 against the Philadelphia Eagles.
Fantasy Spin: Gordon is still acclimating to Seattle and learning the playbook, so you can expect his presence to be fairly limited until he fully learns the offense. He remains more of a WR4 or flex fantasy play in leagues of 12 or more teams heading into Week 13 against the Minnesota Vikings.
