New England Patriots WR Josh Gordon caught three of his four targets for 73 yards and a touchdown in Week 1 against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Huddle Up: Gordon scored the game's first touchdown, breaking a couple of tackles on a 20-yarder after hauling in a short drag route. He also impressively held on to the ball at the end of a 44-yard catch in which he got drilled after a deep shot. Fantasy owners hoping he can live up to the fifth or sixth-round pick they used on him in recent drafts will likely have to readjust their expectations now that Antonio Brown is headed to Foxboro, but Gordon should still be able to post more lines like this a few times this season.

New England Patriots WR Josh Gordon caught two of his six targets for 30 yards in a 31-29 preseason loss to the New York Giants Thursday, Aug. 29.
Huddle Up: Gordon was productive when he was on the field last year, and while there is no guarantee he will stay out of trouble for a full season, he has WR3 upside.

New England Patriots WR Josh Gordon (undisclosed) was activated from the Active/Non-Football Injury list Sunday, Aug. 25, and participated in practice.
Huddle Up: Gordon has two weeks to prepare for the start of the regular season. Gordon has played very well in the past but is a risky option because he has missed so much time. He has a chance to be a No. 2 or No. 3 receiver in fantasy leagues if he does not have any problems.

New England Patriots WR Josh Gordon was placed on the Non-Football Injury list Sunday, Aug. 18, upon his conditional reinstatement.
Huddle Up: It's largely a procedural move for the Patriots while Gordon is brought up to speed. He remains one of the most tantalizing fantasy prospects at wide receiver, but his off-field issues continue to carry immense risk when drafting him.

New England Patriots WR Josh Gordon has been conditionally reinstated after serving an indefinite suspension. He will be allowed to go to the Patriots facility starting Sunday, Aug. 18.
Huddle Up: Consider Gordon a WR3 with upside entering your fantasy football draft. His return comes at a good time, as the Patriots are depleted at wide receiver. While he has upside, there is plenty of risk associated with him. He hasn't been meaningful in fantasy since 2013 (84-1,646-9), appearing in just 22 games since then.

New England Patriots WR Josh Gordon, who is on the Reserve/Commissioner Suspended list, posted a video of him working out with Patriots QB Tom Brady Wednesday, June 19.
Huddle Up: There has been speculation that Gordon could be reinstated again, and he's still such a tease of a fantasy asset. Keep tabs on his situation.

New England Patriots WR Josh Gordon could be reinstated by the NFL around the time training camp starts if he stays in contact with his doctors and continues his treatment, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.
Huddle Up: Owners will need to monitor the situation to see if Gordon suffers any setbacks this offseason. He is a very good player when he is on the field but is a risky fantasy option because of his off-field issues. He could be a late-round option if he is reinstated but may not be a reliable starting option.

Former New England Patriots WR Josh Gordon, who remains indefinitely suspended by the NFL for repeated violations of the substance abuse policy, will spend Super Bowl LIII in an in-patient treatment facility in Gainesville, Fla. There is no exit date yet for when Gordon will leave rehab, but the hope is that it's relatively soon.
Huddle Up: Even though Gordon still will only be 28 this April, he won't be able to pick up and resume his career any time soon with his league suspension. And at the moment, it's hard to imagine him being able to make it back anywhere else if he couldn't in a near-ideal situation in New England.

New England Patriots WR Josh Gordon remains at an inpatient drug treatment facility, according to a source. The Patriots are paying for Gordon's treatment while the NFL's Players Association is working with Gordon to help treat his addiction. Gordon is serving an indefinite suspension for diluted drug test samples - a violation of his reinstatement.
Huddle Up: It remains to be seen if Gordon will ever play in the NFL again. He will turn 28 years old this offseason and has ostensibly exhausted his opportunities. As of now, he's not worth selecting in redraft leagues.

New England Patriots WR Josh Gordon had several violations of the NFL's substance abuse policy prior to being officially suspended Thursday, Dec. 20, and marijuana was not the only drug that he tested positive for, according to multiple sources.
Huddle Up: Gordon's suspension is for an indefinite period of time and there's a possibility that he might not play in the NFL again unless he can prove that he can remain clean for a sustained period of time. He can be dropped in all fantasy formats, with the possible exception of full dynasty leagues.
