Gordon's upside comes with obvious risk (1:55)

Matthew Berry talks about how Gordon can be a fantasy superstar, but has risk in that he's on thin ice and could become "unavailable" at the drop of a hat. (1:55)

Few players offer a greater range of outcomes than New England Patriots wide receiver Josh Gordon. Unfortunately, it has been this way for a long time, since Gordon was fantasy's No. 2 scorer at the position in 2013. That was quite a long time ago! Peyton Manning was awesome that season, except in the Super Bowl. Andy Dalton was a top-five fantasy quarterback (no, really, he was). Running back Eddie Lacy was the top rookie and a fantasy star. Gordon, in 14 games for the 4-12 Cleveland Browns and with Jason Campbell, Brandon Weeden and Brian Hoyer at quarterback, led the NFL in receiving yards with 1,646, and scored nine touchdowns.
