Now that Gordon has been reinstated, his ADP will surely fly upwards, but don't be so quick to draft him as a WR1 considering he is suspended for the first four games, the Browns might not even take him back, and the reinstatement is conditional, which is a serious threat with Josh Gordon. If he does get on the field for 12 games, we don't even know if he will return to previous performance levels since he has been out of the league for so long.

Josh Gordon had a great catch, at the goal line, towards the end of the first half during the Browns third preseason game. Gordon ended the night with two catches for 87 yards and a TD.

Fantasy Impact: Gordon played behind Corey Coleman and Terrelle Pryor but he outproduced them significantly. Gordon looked like he was still the same dominate receiver he was before his long suspension. He will likely move up draft boards after this performance.

Gordon has been reinstated for this season, but will be suspended for the first four games. He does get to participate in training camp, which should be a big help to get him back into the swing of the NFL before he has to sit again. Gordon's good enough to put up numbers with any quarterback, and Hue Jackson will know how to use him, but the Browns are still a run-first team, so don't get overly excited about Gordon this season

Josh Gordon will be reinstated after he serves his 4 game suspension this season. Draft him as a WR3 with WR1 upside. I have him ranked 99th overall. Josh Gordon should be in near peak shape when he returns in Week 5. He is still only 25 years old, But he's only played in just 5 NFL games over the past 2 seasons.
