WR Josh Gordon, KC

Realistically, this may just be the safest week to place him in your lineup.

Reid will do the Belichick thing...the outcast's first game back, he'll make sure Gordon gets some catches and will really be trying to get him in the end zone if they can do it without going way off the game script. Get his confidence up quickly, make him feel like he's a part of the team.


Please don’t tempt me.

Well, he finally got claimed in my league. Not by me. 

1-3 team, and they’re taking a wait & see approach with Gordon on the bench this week. 

IMO thats the sensible approach. 

On another note, I hope Gordon is at peace mentally, and plays this season out uneventfully, regardless of his on-field production. He’s been through a lot and I’d love to see him come full circle. At 30, I can’t imagine he’ll have many more chances.

As far as trusting a QB wanting a WR - Aaron Rodgers wanted Jake Kumerow and a washed up Randall Cobb.  So, I'd take their input with a grain of salt. 

Cobb was pretty salty Sunday...

#### it. I'll be the first one here to step up. I'm starting him. (Very deep dynasty league), but my only other decent flex option (considering I'm down my top 3 WRs and my #2 RB) is Melvin Gordon.

I'm just gonna go for it.

 

Hell yes, with the Ridley news I now have to start Corey Davis instead.....BUT, if I didn't have Corey Davis I would have started Gordon...... best of luck!!!!

 

4 for 134 and 2!!!!!!!  :suds:

There's an old saying in Kansas City — I know it's in Texas, probably in Kansas City — that says

Fool me once. Shame on you.
Fool me twice. Shame on me.

Fool me thrice. Shame on me.

Fool me four times. Shame on me.
Fool me five times. Shame on… shame on… Well you can’t get fooled again.

Josh Gordon was not targeted in the Chiefs' Week 6 win against Washington. 

Gordon barely played against the Football Team following his one-catch debut for Kansas City in Week 5. Byron Pringle and Demarcus Robinson had decent fantasy days in Gordon's place and Mecole Hardman caught four of his five targets for 62 yards. Gordon doesn't need to be rostered in 12-team formats.

Chiefs head coach Andy Reid said the team would "keep bringing [Josh Gordon] along" after Gordon did not see a target in Week 6 against Washington. 

Gordon played just 11 snaps agains the Football Team after his nine-snap, one-target Week 5 debut against Buffalo. Byron Pringle and Demarcus Robinson each had solid outings against Washington, and both players should remain ahead of Gordon in the short term. Fantasy managers' desire for a third fantasy-relevant pass catcher in the KC offense may never come to fruition. Gordon should remain on the waiver wire this week.

Josh Gordon failed to catch his lone target in the Chiefs' Week 7 loss to the Titans.

Gordon got the start, but his one target was one where he was well covered. The ball was tipped into the air and picked off. Gordon is still trying to find his way in this Kansas City offense ahead of a Week 8 date with the Giants.

FTR: Most of the time, wherever Gordon lands and gets that opportunity to show he can still make a play or two, not just him but the entire team around him FAILS miserably it seems. 

For the last time, close the book on this guy and ship off to Canada and let him go be an Argonaut or something. 

KC is on their last legs for the season and this guy is on the team...simple release on Monday and he is gone.  The notion that Gordon was going to inform everyone his intentions of where he was signing, you'll sign with the worst team in the worst situation or you won't sign at all should be the message.

Strangely misplaced hatred of a guy who has nothing at all to do with all the Chiefs various issues. Very very weird to read the above post. The part I bolded—the disdain and entitlement to dictate someone else’s career opportunities because (I assume) you don’t like that they’ve continued to get chances at a career after struggling with substances, is even weirder. The tone is like the way a (bad) parent would chastise and punish a child. 
 

No idea what your issue with the dude is. As if having already thrown away the opportunity  to put together a great career and make generational wealth over his substance abuse issues isn’t punishment enough for you, when he does get his stuff together enough to play again he should also only be allowed to play for the worst team in the league? I’ll repeat—very weird to focus on this as some sort of superstitious reason the Chiefs are doing poorly. Strange agenda to stomp on the (very unlikely) potential of a redemption arc of a guy who has already wasted the majority of his own prime over his issues. The damage is done man, it’s not like he’s hurt anyone but himself. 
 

Only thing I can think of is you’re one of those people who still think his only issue was resisting the urge to light up a joint, so you don’t respect him at all over that. But it’s been well established that he has plenty of other substance abuse issues including alcoholism. Everyone talks about the “what if” of Justin Blackmon’s career. Well, you’re seeing the attempt of a similar dude who has tried again and again to pull out of the tailspin their life was in. Not sure what’s so detestable about that. You have rapists and abusers in the NFL but a dude with a substance abuse issue can’t get a few chances with teams who decide he’s worth the time to try to salvage? Please.

That was a weirdly placed victory lap, MoP. Anybody with addiction struggles will tell you that they lament the loss to their life and organizations within whose trust they're placed. 

Very rarely do you get an unrepentant addict of any sort. We're sort of human in that way.

Chiefs coach Andy Reid has told Josh Gordon "to be patient because it's going to happen."

Obviously, Reid's words leave some room for interpretation but the coach also said it's only a matter of time before Josh Gordon is a productive part of the Chiefs' offense. It's clear that Reid intends for Gordon to become more involved at some point. When or how that happens remains to be seen. Gordon has four targets and one catch in his time with Kansas City. He can be left on waiver wires for now but his usage is worth monitoring going forward.

Chiefs placed WR Josh Gordon on the reserve/COVID-19 list. 

Gordon is COVID positive, but he is also vaccinated. That means that, though he can't get cleared in time for Thursday evening's game against the Chargers, he should be ready to rock for Week 16 vs. the Steelers. Gordon scored his first Chiefs touchdown in Sunday's humiliation of the Raiders, but he has caught just four passes in nine games. The bigger concern than Gordon's absence for Week 15 will be the state of the rest of the Chiefs' receiver corps. Keep your head on a swivel if you are counting on Tyreek Hill for the first week of the fantasy playoffs.

Chiefs activated WR Josh Gordon from the reserve/COVID list.

With Tyreek Hill and Travis Kelce still on the list, Gordon could be in for a much bigger role against the Steelers if Hill and/or Kelce don't gain clearance in time for Sunday. Gordon has four catches for 27 yards and one touchdown since joining the Chiefs but has seen his snaps rise in recent weeks.
