Former All-Pro WR Josh Gordon, who is being reinstated, is planning to sign with the Kansas City Chiefs, sources tell ESPN. His agents, Eric Dounn and Matt Leist, confirmed Gordon is headed to Kansas City.
This is a nice landing spot for Gordon who could easily climb to the team's WR2 role, however behind Tyreek Hill and Travis Kelce. Still, the team certainly has a need for a WR2 as Hardman has 11 catches for 107 yards and a TD over the first three weeks and Pringle has a 5-81-1 line over the same span. Gordon is worth grabbing on the waiver wire this week just for being a Chief and having Patrick Mahomes as his QB. Back in 2019 Gordon appeared in 11 games, playing for both the Patriots and Seahawks. Gordon only caught seven passes from Russell Wilson while playing limited snaps, but averaged a robust 19.9 yards per reception. Of course, Gordon's history makes him a risk.
KC WR Byron Pringle - Week 6 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 6 vs. Houston Texans
Byron Pringle came out of nowhere to finish 6-103-1 in Week 5. While it's a highly productive game, he's just so far down on the depth chart in Kansas City, it's hard to see him having success like that again. He's worth monitoring, but not worth playing.
