  Raiders | Sign Devon Wylie    Tue Aug 18, 05:33 PM

Free-agent WR Devon Wylie (Rams) signed with the Oakland Raiders Tuesday, Aug. 18.

Footballguys view: Wylie is a super quick slot receiver who has bounced around the league. He's not a fantasy factor--or a player you should be monitoring even in super deep dynasty leagues.

  Rams | Seven signed to Futures contracts    Tue Dec 30, 07:36 PM

The St. Louis Rams signed OT Steven Baker, WR Emory Blake, OG Travis Bond, DB Christian Bryant, LB Marshall McFadden, DT Doug Worthington and WR Devon Wylie to Reserve/Futures contracts Tuesday, Dec. 30.

Footballguys view: Oh if Wylie could only stay healthy. Coming out of Fresno State, Wylie was impressive at the Shrine Game and reminded scouts of Wes Welker. However, (just like in college) Wylie has struggled with injuries as a pro.

  Rams | Sign two to practice squad    Tue Oct 21, 05:14 PM

The St. Louis Rams signed free-agent WRs Kadron Boone (Eagles) and Devon Wylie (49ers) to their practice squad Tuesday, Oct. 21.

Footballguys view: Wylie was once an interesting prospect in dynasty leagues. He's been unable to stick on more than one roster despite having incredible natural ability. Wylie is quick, fast and agile--but he struggles staying healthy and with consistency. We're no longer interested in him...even in the deepest of deep dynasty leagues.

  49ers | LaMichael James top candidate for return jobs    Sat Jul 19, 12:01 PM

San Francisco 49ers RB LaMichael James will be entering training camp as the leading candidate for the kick and punt return jobs. WR Bruce Ellington, WR Devon Wylie, WR Quinton Patton and CB Perrish Cox are expected to compete with James for the jobs.

Footballguys view: James has to do something to stand out in the league's most crowded backfield. He's buried on the depth chart behind Frank Gore, Kendall Hunter and rookie Carlos Hyde (at least). James has little fantasy value--even in dynasty leagues.

  49ers | Two work on punt returns    Tue Jun 3, 11:57 PM

San Francisco 49ers RB LaMichael James and WR Devon Wylie were the only two players working on fielding punts during practice Tuesday, June 3, during voluntary workouts. James looked more comfortable catching the ball on a windy day.

Footballguys view: James will have to prove himself on special teams if he wants to make the final roster. "Wiggles" Wylie is a fantastic option at punt preturner. He's quick, fast and can make defenders miss. Too bad he struggles to stay healthy dating back to his days at Fresno State.

  49ers | Two signed to futures deals    Mon Jan 20, 03:35 PM

The San Francisco 49ers have signed WR Devon Wylie and DE Lawrence Okoye to futures contracts. Terms of the contracts were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Wylie is a shifty, speedy return man/slot receiver who has been unable to stay healthy or stick on a roster for very long after going in the fourth round to the Chiefs two years ago.

  49ers | Two signed    Tue Dec 10, 06:59 PM

The San Francisco 49ers signed OG Ryan Seymour (Seahawks) and WR Devon Wylie (Seahawks) Tuesday, Dec. 10.

Footballguys view: The 49ers/Seahawks rivalry continues here. They have been poaching players the other team has cut in recent weeks.

  Titans | Devon Wylie to handle returns    Wed Nov 13, 12:08 AM

Tennessee Titans head coach Mike Munchak said Tuesday, Nov. 12, that WR Devon Wylie will handle punt and kickoff returns in the Week 11 game against the Indianapolis Colts Thursday, Nov. 14. He said it is a challenge since Wylie hasn't played all season.

Footballguys view: "Wiggles" Wylie is incredibly quick and elusive in the open field. Fantasy owners in super deep dynasty leagues should have him on the radar.

  Titans | Jake Locker to IR    Tue Nov 12, 03:30 PM

The Tennessee Titans placed QB Jake Locker (foot) on the season-ending Injured Reserve Tuesday, Nov. 12, and elevated WR Devon Wylie from the practice squad to the active roster in a corresponding move.

Footballguys view: It's a shame that Locker's season has to end like this. He was starting to show off his skill set and was playing well when healthy this year. Locker should be back in time for training camp next year.

  Steelers | Devon Wylie signs    Wed Oct 16, 11:17 AM

The Pittsburgh Steelers signed free-agent WR Devon Wylie (Cardinals) to the practice squad.

Footballguys view: Wylie has bounced around the league during his short pro career. He's a talented player, and has a little Danny Amendola to his game. However, Wylie has had trouble staying healthy both as a collegian at Fresno State and as a pro.

  Patriots | Work out a few    Tue Oct 15, 11:06 PM

The New England Patriots worked out free-agent WRs Jordan Shipley (Jaguars), WR LaQuan Williams (Ravens) and WR Devon Wylie (Cardinals) Tuesday, Oct. 15.

Footballguys view: The Patriots are likely just updating their emergency list here. When Wylie came out of Fresno State in 2012 there were some in the scouting community who compared him to Danny Amendola because of his quickness and ability to make tough catches underneath.

The Arizona Cardinals added LB Kenny Demens from the practice squad and signed free-agent WR Devon Wylie (Chiefs) to the practice squad.

Footballguys view: "Wiggles" Wylie is an interesting player to watch in super deep dynasty leagues. He's incredibly quick in and out of his breaks and can make difficult catches over the middle. Wylie has a long injury history dating back to his days at Fresno State.

Kansas City Chiefs WR Devon Wylie (hamstring) left the team's preseason game early Thursday, Aug. 29, because of a hamstring injury.

Footballguys view: "Wiggles" Wylie is an exciting playmaker with the ball in his hands. However, he has a long injury history dating back to his days in college at Fresno State. Hamstring injuries are known to linger if not given the proper time to heal.
