“Should I bid 100% of my faab or 100% of my faab on Josh Gordon l?” “-Max K.
This question was inevitable, and I thought about just saying “no” and moving on. However, I will briefly explain why.
Gordon missed part of 2014 due to a suspension, all of 2015 and 2016, then part of 2018. That was before being suspended in December 2019 and having his previous reinstatement revoked in 2020. Gordon n ‘has only played 28 games since 2014.
That seems like more than enough reasons to say no, even as a gap with an opportunity to catch some assists from Patrick Mahomes. Gordon hasn’t played a snap since 2019 and then manages to generate enough value to rank 79th in Fantastic Points Per Game. If that wasn’t enough, option number three in the Chiefs’ passing attack (behind Hill and Kelce) has always been inconsistent from week to week.
Has Josh Gordon ever had a campaign of 87 catches, 1,646 yards and nine touchdowns with the Browns? Yes, he did in 2013. Quarterback was Jason Campbell and running back Willis McGahee. This is where you say “yes” out loud.
In short, no thanks. Difficult pass. I would strongly prefer someone like Tim Patrick and I wouldn’t bid more than maybe one percent of my FAAB on Josh Gordon.
I would definitely keep an eye out for anyone in your league spending a lot on the old standout. They appear to be a solid person to send some business offers to.
