Roger Goodell, on reinstating Josh Gordon: “Playing for the Browns is a harsher punishment than not playing at all, so I’m all for it.”

Gordon has nobody to blame but himself, but it's shocking to hear how much he was enabled at Baylor. A coach shows him how to pass a drug test? LOL. You have to be kidding me.

He bared all in that documentary. I think you have to root for this kid.

Only 3 of 8 copies of him have been claimed in the Interboard Challenge.  I'm sure you we can get you a team.

As much as I want on this ride I dropped him in redraft. 5 weeks is too long to hold right now for an unknown.

He was on the WW in my league too. Bench is 8 deep. I guess people gave up with the bye weeks?

I picked him up expecting him to give me absolutely nothing this year. But he'll only cost me a 10th round pick in next year's draft (assuming he doesn't follow his pattern and screw it up again). So it was worth the roster spot.

I was with him every step of the way. Literally   

Exactly. Isn’t that the definition of blind love???  Ha maybe that’s just love?

Wait... if you were literally with him every step of the way, does that mean you are actually Josh Gordon?!?!  Now it all makes sense.  Good luck with your recovery. I’m really pulling for you. And not just cause I have you on my roster!

One night Josh had a dream. 

He dreamed he was walking along the beach with Soulfly3.

Across the sky flashed scenes from his life.

For each scene, he noticed two sets of footprints in the sand: 

one belonging to him, and the other to Soulfly3.

He noticed that many times along the path of his life

there was only one set of footprints.

He also noticed that it happened at the

very lowest and saddest times in his life.

This really bothered him and he questioned Soulfly3 about it.

"Soulfly3, You said that you'd walk with me all the way.

But I have noticed that during the most troublesome

times in my life, there is only one set of footprints.

I don't understand why when I needed you most

You would leave me."

Soulfly3 replied, "I love you and would never leave you.

During your times of trial and suffering,

when you see only one set of footprints,

it was then that I carried you."

He was a FA in my dynasty league most of the last two years.  I picked him up as a free agent week 1 this year.  Was just offered Josh Doctson for him straight up.  Pondering that.

It's crazy. Also just 8 months older than Docston.

I already had him on a bunch of redraft teams(and dynasty), but a few redraft leagues I had to cut last week due to bye week issues.  Timing was almost perfect for him to get reinstated because I was going to cut him in all redraft leagues yesterday. My thought was he had to get reinstated, would likely need at least 4 weeks of practice prep to have a shot and no longer seemed worth it.

Instead I went nuts on bidding for him in FA last night, and I mean redraft.  Now these are national type contests with weeks 14-16 carrying most weight, I would think of it different if this was local type leagues. I got some teams I feel reasonably confident will advance to final round and for a lot of teams the bye weeks are almost done or really manageable. This are 20 man rosters and on 20 man roster I just think I can find room to roster Josh Gordon just in case.  I don't think it works out, but just in case.

I can't remember the last time when he was a FA in any of my dynasty leagues. He seems to always have had his die hard believers.

I did just get him in a 6 keeper than has a shallow in season roster of 17, but was still surprised that one of the doormat teams hadn't stashed him when talks of reinstatement seemed to be getting serious a few months back.

Yeah, Gordon hasn't been on any of my Dynasty waivers ever, that I can remember. He's certainly been passed around as a throw in trade piece as previous owners got sick of waiting, but someone has always been willing to hold the ticket, it seems.

Actually he hasn't done more yards and TDs than any of them individually.  Only has Benjamin on the yards by a couple of hundred.

I was lucky to get this guy with 82% of FAAB.

This pretty much locks in my 8-0 team to finish out undefeated.

This guy is younger than Antonio Brown and should produce on the same level.

When I found out he was younger than Dante Stallworth, I immediately traded my buddy LeShon McCoy and Mike Evans for him.

Questions:

Was anybody in front office leadership or on the Browns coaching staff three years ago?

Are the Browns a competent offense?

Do the Browns have a quartback who can get him the ball?

Are you going to start him right out of the gate in the final regular season FF Week?

Knowns:

Succeeded in 2013 primarily on physical dominance because of his rare combination of strength, speed, & agility.

Is not a good route runner.

When he last played (2014) he didn’t know the playbook.

 

 

Worth a flyer but personally I’m happy with the production I’m getting out of my current WR corps.

Coleman seemed to start off ok before he got hurt.

Too bad he's still in Cleveland though, the team that desperately needs a better QB but can't be bothered to fill out the paperwork for one.

He’s a no brainer pickup for teams that are going to get a bye in the playoffs. Those teams will have two weeks to see where he stands before deciding if they should use him in the playoffs or not.

Wasn't interested at all, but then I saw that Chuck Norris wishes he was as young as Josh Gordon.

Now I'm all in!

Completely forgot he played pre-season last year. It's just preseason but still alot better than no football at all these past three years. He's still available in my league and I've been on the fence since yesterday. **** it I'm going to pick him up in redraft.

Yep - it’s why I wasted a 6th round pick on him. :doh: 

it was also preseason. Never read into preseason that much. Especially for a guy who hasn’t seen an NFL DB in a year & a half.

If you bother coming into this thread, and he's still available, you should own him. If you already own him and you're in this thread, you should hold him. I think I cut a guy like perine to pick him up (for the second time this year, and probably fifth time in three years). If there's an ounce of interest in his upside, I'm don't see what's to debate. Take the flyer. Hold.
