WR - SEA - Suspended
Week 12 Outlook
The Seattle Seahawks have officially re-signed free agent WR Josh Gordon, who is currently awaiting results after applying for reinstatement.
Gordon appeared in five games for Seattle in 2019, catching seven passes for 139 yards and according to Jeremy Fowler of ESPN, his reinstatement process is going "very well". His presence should bolster an already solid receiving core of DK Metcalf, Tyler Lockett and Phillip Dorsett II. The 29-year-old receiver is always a threat to produce fantasy value when on the field, but he comes with great risk due to his off-the-field issues.
Free agent WR Josh Gordon (suspension) expects a decision on his reinstatement within 30 days, per Jeremy Fowler of ESPN.
Gordon recently applied for reinstatement and is expected to receive an answer within 30 days. He was suspended indefinitely in December for violating the NFL’s substance abuse policy. If the NFL reinstates Gordon, it would be the first time in his career that he would become an unrestricted free agent. He has been running routes and training for his return in the meantime. Gordon is currently 127th among all wideouts in latest ECR. If reinstated, and depending on what team signs him, the 29-year-old could rise up in the WR ranks.
Free agent WR Josh Gordon applied for reinstatement on Wednesday.
Gordon has been in Seattle running routes and training for his return. He is hopeful to have his indefinite suspension lifted before training camp starts. Gordon was suspended indefinitely on December 16th for violating the NFL's substance abuse policy. The 29-year-old hauled 27 receptions for 426 yards and one touchdown across 11 games for the Seahawks/Patriots in 2019. Gordon has been suspended six times in his career. If reinstated, he should be able to latch onto another team. Gordon is currently 127th among all wide receivers in the latest expert consensus rankings.
WR Josh Gordon will apply for reinstatement into the NFL soon, per Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk.
Gordon was suspended indefinitely December 16th for violating the NFL's substance abuse policy. It was the sixth time that Gordon has been suspended in the NFL. "Gordon is doing well. He’s working out and he’s ready to play. The goal is to get him cleared to return before training camp," per Florio. Gordon hauled in 27 receptions for 426 yards and one touchdown across 11 games for the Patriots/Seahawks in 2019. The 29-year-old WR is expected to apply for reinstatement and will look to play in the NFL in 2020 and beyond. Gordon is currently 125th among all wideouts in the latest expert consensus rankings.
Jeremy Fowler from ESPN is reporting that according to a source, Josh Gordon is working his way back from an indefinite suspension and intends to play in 2020. Gordon was suspended on December 16th, for violating the NFL’s policies on performance-enhancing substances and substances of abuse for the sixth time since joining the league in 2013.
As per the report, Commissioner Roger Goodell will oversee Gordon’s reinstatement attempt. If Gordon were to be reinstated he would become an unrestricted free agent for the first time in his career. The wide receiver played for the Patriots and Seahawks last season and totaled 27 receptions, 426 yards, and one touchdown. In dynasty leagues Gordon is a hold for now, until an outcome for his reinstatement is determined.
