Josh Gordon 2019 Fantasy Football Outlook

Read Josh Gordon’s 2019 Fantasy Football Outlook!

On Friday Patriots wide receiver Josh Gordon was officially reinstated into the National Football League. On Sunday, Gordon can officially rejoin the Patriots. This development obviously is great news for a team that lost some considerable receiving talent over the course of the offseason.

When Josh Gordon is on the field he is an electric talent and has the ability to bust a game wide open. A lot of people are going to put him in the top 20 wide receivers and I just don;t quite see that right now.

Josh Gordon has never played 16 games in his entire career. The most he has ever played was in 2013 with the Cleveland Browns when he played 14 games. In those 14 games Gordon was a cheat code. He only caught 87 of 159 targets for 1,646 yards and 9 touchdowns. He averaged an astronomical 117.6 yards per game. He also rushed 5 times for 88 yards.

In all his other seasons Gordon has been right around that 63 yards per game compared to that incredible 2013 season. He also has only played in 22 games since 2013.

There was hope for Gordon in New England, when he was on the field he looked great and Tom Brady targeted him when it mattered most. In Gordon’s 11 games in New England in 2018 he caught 40 of 68 targets for 720 yards and 3 touchdowns. He was a quality flex play for you in 2018.

Josh Gordon finished as a wide receiver 1 or 2, 41.67% of the time. This is a number I realistically think can stay the same or maybe go up to around 55% of the time. When Gordon receives targets he has a good game because he can break the game open.

Josh Gordon is someone who if he catches 8 plus touchdowns and plays 14 games I think he will be really solid for you. I just don’t think he will play that much.

There is no suspension looming for Gordon which is a great thing to hear. My worry is what happens during the season. Will Gordon be able to play 16 without having to leave the team or be suspended? These are the questions that give me headaches when I draft him. If he plays 14 or more he is incredible and can finish in the top 24.

Josh Gordon Average Draft Position

ADP from Fantasy Football Calculator

Josh Gordon is currently the 51st wide receiver off the board at the 11.06. I think I would be comfortable spending an 8th round pick on Gordon or maybe a late 7th round pick if i feel like he will not come back to me. If you draft him you must have good wide receiver depth in order to save yourself if he does get a suspension, leaves the team, or gets injured.
