Kudos to those of you who either drafted Josh Gordon or snagged him off waivers when word about a reduced suspension came down. It looks as if he'll be allowed to play for the Browns starting in Week 12.

But it's just Week 3. So now what?

Gordon is going to have an impact in most every Fantasy league's postseason, guaranteed. That's because those who hold on to him and make their league's playoffs will use him and those who have to fight for a wild card berth will trade him to one of the top teams for a player who can help win now. Even if he's a free agent in your league right now, he won't be for much longer.

The beauty of Gordon in Fantasy is that he's a trade chip based on his potential. So if you're in need of a quick fix to solve a bye-week problem, Gordon's a guy you can trade for help. He's also a throw-in on a two-for-one deal to upgrade to a quality starter. And he can be a sweetener in a transaction to help get a deal done. But in all of those scenarios, his value isn't very high ... for now.

That's because there are two clear downsides to owning Gordon: One, he takes up a roster space, and if your league only has five or six bench spots, that can become a real pain in the butt to manage around. Two, there's no guarantee that Gordon will be as good as he was last year when he does return. Can we say with absolute certainty that Gordon is keeping himself in game shape between selling cars in Northeast Ohio? Or that he knows the new offense? I don't mean to put a damper on the optimism here, but he had just three catches for 40 yards in the preseason and really didn't quite look the same as he did last year.

I have Gordon on my bench in a few of my leagues and the plan for now is to sit on him until I either have to make a move or try to make a move when interest in him picks up after Week 10. Teams that have a great shot at a playoff berth will also aim to move players to get Gordon on their bench for the postseason run that starts in Week 14.

But it doesn't mean people aren't making deals right now. Here are some actual trades people are making involving Gordon:

Josh Gordon for Antonio Gates and Anquan Boldin: There's no telling how much glue the owner who parted with Gates and Boldin sniffed before making this deal. Maybe the guy had Jimmy Graham and Gates, so Gates was expendable. But why throw in Boldin? This was too much to give for Gordon.

Via @SidCohen32 on Twitter: Josh Gordon and Matt Asiata to the Adrian Peterson owner for Percy Harvin and Jonathan Stewart: Again, this is just too much for Gordon, though it's a deal the Peterson owner probably felt he had to make.

Via @CitizenZac on Twitter: Josh Gordon for Jeremy Maclin and Terrance West (before Week 2): Insanity. There's no reason to give this much for Gordon.

Josh Gordon for Larry Fitzgerald: Owners are definitely disenchanted with Fitzgerald right now, but they shouldn't be this impatient with him. He nearly scored last week and he's still playing a bunch with the Cardinals. He's not going to be terrible forever. Trading him for Gordon is basically quitting on Fitz. Now's not the time to do that.

Josh Gordon for Philip Rivers: Though I believe Rivers is more valuable, I understand why this trade makes sense. To many owners, Rivers is a backup quarterback. Dealing him for a player who can be helpful down the line (or helpful in making another deal) makes sense. Rivers is worth starting pretty much every week.

Josh Gordon for Knile Davis: This deal makes sense, especially if Davis is being acquired to help replace Jamaal Charles, Knowshon Moreno or Ryan Mathews. In fact, Gordon is the perfect trade chip to fill a hole in your lineup, be it with a high-value handcuff or otherwise.
