FFL: Browns’ Josh Gordon Could be Back in Play
Is it 4:20 Yet?
Josh Gordon, one the most dangerous receivers in the NFL may be permitted to play for the Browns again soon. Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer, reports the Cleveland Browns are cautiously optimistic the receiver could be reinstated this week. The suspended WR has all-pro potential, but a checkered past with weed. Do any of our fantasy football team owners have the sack to pick him up as a free agent? We don’t expect Gordon to return to the field soon. FTS spoke to a few NFL sources who don’t believe the receiver’s suspension will be lifted anytime soon. So, if you were taking a chance on Gordon and select him from the waiver wire, beware.
By the way, have you ever played football, on weed?
In the Weeds
Thirty-two representatives of the Players’ Association (NFLPA) are meeting to vote on a new drug policy this week. “Gordon wouldn’t have tested positive for marijuana under the terms of the new NFLPA agreement. His suspension should, therefore, be lifted.” “The NFL and NFLPA will bump the marijuana metabolite threshold up from 15 ng/mil to 50. Gordon’s positive test was a 16, sources have told cleveland.com.”
What’s the big deal about Josh Gordon? In 2013, Gordon played in 14 games and averaged 16.2 fantasy points in standard scoring leagues. His numbers were even better in PPR leagues. Gordon averaged 22.5 points weekly.
