The league took its damned time, but we finally have a ruling on Josh Gordon’s appeal of his year-long suspension, so I hope you either haven’t had your draft yet or you were smart enough to pass on the troubled receiver.

With the punishment upheld and last year’s top fantasy WR out for the season, it goes without saying that he shouldn’t be taken in redraft leagues. The interesting dilemma is what to do with him in keeper leagues.

The Browns receiver is obviously talented and could be a staple for your team for years to come. But holding on to a guy who won’t play this entire season while taking up a roster spot is a gamble that some owners won’t be willing to take.

The amount of keepers allowed in your league and your availability of roster spots will go a long way toward your decision to investing for the future with Gordon.
