Josh Gordon now has a slight chance of avoiding an indefinite suspension for the upcoming NFL season. The plan outlined by Gordon's agent and lawyer is to use the argument that Gordon was subjected to secondhand smoke and therefore failed the subsequent drug test. Grossi feels there is a perfect storm of events working in Gordon's favor by putting pressure on the NFL. These include Ray Rice only getting suspended two games for domestic violence and Colts Owner Jim Irsay getting arrested in March for driving while intoxicated. (Source: Tony Grossi)

Fantasy Impact: Fantasy owners would be wise to keep an eye on the proceedings this Friday, August 1. If Gordon's expected year-long suspension is lowered to eight games or less, he becomes an attractive target in dynasty leagues and worth a late round pick in redraft leagues with deep benches.

Fantasy Impact: Gordon's future still remains up in the air until his appeal is heard by the NFL. Fantasy owners should plan on him not being available for the 2014 season and he is undraftable except perhaps as a flier in deep leagues. Gordon's presence at camp, however, may indicate that he remains in Cleveland's plans for the future. There was some speculation that the team would cut ties with the talented but troubled wide receiver. He remains a hold in dynasty leagues.

Fantasy Impact: Without any specific details as to when Gordon's hearing will take place, the expectation for fantasy owners should be that he won't play in 2014. Nothing is confirmed, but the Browns' star cornerback, Joe Haden, was suspended in 2012 for four games after his first failed drug test. In Gordon's case, he has had a history with violations of the substance abuse policy leading most to believe he won't be a factor in 2014.

Fantasy Impact: Gordon was already facing a 16 game suspension for a failed drug test. There was some hope that the suspension would get reduced but he'll almost assuredly be suspended for the year now (and possibly longer). It goes without saying that Gordon should not be drafted in redraft leagues in 2014.

Josh Gordon's appeal will be "all or nothing," either resulting in no ban at all or a full-year suspension.
ProFootballTalk | Jul 30th
Despite a belief in some league circles that the person designated to handle the appeal of Browns receiver Josh Gordon’s one-year suspension can split the proverbial baby by imposing a suspension somewhere between zero and 16 games, the NFL characterizes the substance-abuse policy in a way that makes clear the absence of discretion. “The disciplinary…

The substance-abuse policy gives full power over any disciplinary appeals to the Commissioner or his designee.  When it comes to crafting a specific punishment, however, it’s unclear how much discretion the designated hearing officer has. For players (like Browns receiver Josh Gordon) who are in Stage III of the substance-abuse program, a player who tests…

In early May, we found out that Browns receiver Josh Gordon was facing a one-year suspension for violating the league's substance-abuse policy.
