Is Josh Gordon Worth a Draft Pick?

Josh Gordon has applied for reinstatement following a ban from the NFL in 2018. He could return as Tom Brady’s primary deep threat if the league allows him to play in 2019, though that’s not a guarantee. Our experts discuss whether Gordon is worth grabbing in the final rounds of Best Ball drafts.

Is Josh Gordon worth a draft pick, and if so, what round?

STLCards: I suppose you could consider it in the final rounds, but someone else will likely pounce before I am willing to do so. Have you ever seen the movie “Groundhog Day?” We’ve seen this movie before. As the old adage goes, “play stupid games, win stupid prizes.” Gordon is unlikely to be a fantasy difference-maker in 2019 even if he gets cleared at some point.
