  Dolphins | Knee issue for Ricardo Louis    Sat May 18, 09:10 PM

Miami Dolphins WR Ricardo Louis (knee) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list with a knee injury, according to a league source. It was initially reported that Louis was dealing with a neck injury.

Footballguys view: Louis missed the 2018 season with a neck injury. Now, he's lost for the year due to a knee injury suffered this offseason. Louis is going to have a difficult time continuing his pro career that had some minor flashes early on when he was with the Browns. He's set to be an RFA for the Dolphins following this season.

  Browns | Ricardo Louis to miss season    Wed Jul 25, 12:19 PM

Cleveland Browns WR Ricardo Louis (neck) will miss the entire 2018 season.

Footballguys view: A fourth-round pick out of Auburn in the 2016 NFL draft, Louis injured his neck late last year but still managed to catch 27 passes on the year. With Louis out for the year and Josh Gordon taking some time to address his mental health, the Browns may consider making a move for a veteran wide receiver. Dez Bryant has been a consideration for the team according to their General Manager John Dorsey.

  Browns | Ricardo Louis primed for bigger role    Tue Sep 19, 01:07 PM

Cleveland Browns WR Ricardo Louis 'figures to move in the pecking order' following the Week 2 injury to Corey Coleman, according to ESPN's Pat McManamon, who adds he expects Rashard Higgins to remain the team's slot receiver.

Footballguys view: Like Higgins, Louis was picked in the 2016 NFL draft by the Browns. While Higgins was a fifth-round pick for the Browns, they actually selected Louis in the fourth round. Coming out of Auburn, Louis had a nice size/speed combination at 6'2" 215 pounds. He can make plays after the catch and is developing as a route runner.

  Browns | Ricardo Louis continues to draw praise    Sat Jul 8, 11:49 AM

Cleveland Browns WR Ricardo Louis has 'really helped himself' and 'is a talented young man,' according to senior offensive assistant Al Saunders.

Footballguys view: The Browns wide receiver group is unsettled after Kenny Britt and Corey Coleman, so an opportunity is there for Louis and other youngsters like Jordan Payton and Rashard Higgins. This isn't a pass offense that can support three fantasy relevant wideouts, but Louis's top-end measureables and possible separation from his fellow 2016 third-day picks merits attention in deep dynasty leagues.

  Browns | Ricardo Louis could be No. 3 WR    Sun Jun 18, 04:24 PM

Cleveland Browns WR Ricardo Louis appears to be one of the leading candidates for the No. 3 receiver job this season because of his versatility and run after the catch ability, in the opinion of The Cleveland Plain Dealer's Dan Labbe.

Footballguys view: There has recently been a flood of positive stories about Louis coming out of Browns camp. His main competition for the no3 spot could be Rashard Higgins or Jordan Payton. The Browns QB situation is a hot mess, but they'll be supported by a strong offensive line and a solid rushing attack. Louis likely has little fantasy value in redraft leagues even if he's the no3 WR for the Browns, but dynasty owners should be monitoring his progress through training camp.

  Browns | Ricardo Louis to train with Brandon Marshall    Fri Jun 16, 12:26 PM

Cleveland Browns WR Ricardo Louis expects to spend some of his down time this summer working out with New York Giants WR Brandon Marshall. He also hopes to pick the brains of Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown and retired receiver Andre Johnson - each of whom is a Miami native like he is.

  Browns | Ricardo Louis ready to step up?    Thu Jun 15, 09:11 PM

Cleveland Browns WR Ricardo Louis is more confident and comfortable in the offense this year, according to ESPN.com's Pat McManamon, and McManamon believes Cleveland's lack of depth at the receiver position could lead to Louis playing an important role.

Footballguys view: It's a steady and interesting drumbeat that has been there this offseason. Louis is someone that beat writers are pegging as an improved player. A fourth-round pick in 2016, Louis had a 5-for-65 stat line against the Titans in Week 6 last year and then it was all downhill for him as he barely saw the field.

  Browns | Ricardo Louis could draw a start    Wed Oct 19, 10:01 PM

Cleveland Browns WR Ricardo Louis might start opposite WR Andrew Hawkins in Week 7 against the Cincinnati Bengals if WR Terrelle Pryor (hamstring) is unable to go.

Footballguys view: Louis is a good route-runner, but he's not the athlete that Pryor is. If Pryor doesn't play, then we can't recommend any target in the Browns passing game.

  Browns | Ricardo Louis injures hamstring    Mon Aug 15, 12:13 PM

Cleveland Browns WR Ricardo Louis (hamstring) pulled up in practice Sunday, Aug. 14, with a hamstring injury. He is the third Browns receiver to suffer such an injury this offseason, joining WRs Corey Coleman and Andrew Hawkins.

Footballguys view: Louis is the best physical specimen of the trio of rookie wideouts taken on the third day. He's still at best competing for the #5 job once Josh Gordon is back.
