Report: Seahawks sign Josh Gordon

Seahawks WR Josh Gordon passed his physical and looks poised to play in Week 10. We break down the fantasy football implications for the Seattle receivers.

He’s back! Josh Gordon has signed with the Seahawks and will rejoin the team pending reinstatement, per ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler and Adam Schefter. Gordon, who has been suspended multiple times for failed drug tests, spent last season with the Patriots and Seahawks before his last suspension.

Between the two teams, Gordon caught 27 passes for 426 yards and a touchdown. With Seattle, he played five games and only saw 11 targets. It’s now been seven years since Gordon’s monster 2013 season when he had 87 receptions for 1,646 yards and nine touchdowns.

Gordon is 29-years old and should still have some real game value, but sitting behind D.K. Metcalf and Tyler Lockett won’t give him a real chance for fantasy value unless there is an injury. Even then, it’s hard to trust him as a fantasy asset until we see him truly back making plays consistently.
