  Buccaneers | Chris Godwin impressing     Sun May 28, 09:42 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Chris Godwin's hands and physicality have stood out during OTAs, and head coach Dirk Koetter said Godwin is 'off to a fast start.'

Footballguys view: That's the best part of his game as Godwin was known as a fighter coming out of Penn State as a third-round pick this year. Godwin doesn't have the speed to separate, so he'll fight contested passes more than most. He's a determined receiver who reminds some in the scouting community of Jermaine Kearse (Seahawks).

  Buccaneers | Adam Humphries expects big year    Sun May 28, 09:31 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Adam Humphries said he is confident entering his third year in the offense. 'I feel like I know the plays and I feel like I can play all three positions if needed,' Humphries said. 'With the additions we've had on the offense, I think it will be a great year for me.'

  Jets | Three Jets could be used as returners    Sun May 28, 04:27 PM

New York Jets RB Elijah McGuire, WR Jalin Marshall and WR Frankie Hammond Jr. are expected to be kick and punt return options during training camp, but the team could also look to add a veteran returner at some point. Marshall is facing a four-game suspension for a performance-enhancing drug violation.

  Patriots | Andrew Hawkins contract update    Sun May 28, 04:14 PM

Updating a previous report, New England Patriots WR Andrew Hawkins' one-year deal includes a $900,000 base salary.

Footballguys view: Hawkins is going to compete with Danny Amendola for the likely final spot at the WR position. He's lightning quick and fits the mold of what the Patriots are looking for. Hawkins took less money for a chance to compete for a championship with the Patriots.

  Patriots | Danny Amendola in fight for last WR spot    Sun May 28, 01:45 PM

New England Patriots WR Danny Amendola is expected to battle Andrew Hawkins for the sixth and likely final receiver spot in camp, according to ESPN's Mike Reiss.

Footballguys view: Amendola took a pay cut earlier this year to help his case for making the final roster. Now scheduled to count $3 million against he cap, Amendola will have to beat out Hawkins for that final spot. He's familiar with the offense, so that gives him an edge, but Amendola has been injury prone during his pro career. The smallest setback could be all Hawkins needs to win a job on the 53-man roster.

  Vikings | Marcus Sherels could return kickoffs    Sun May 28, 09:12 AM

Minnesota Vikings CB Marcus Sherels, who already serves as the club's punt returner, is a candidate to return kickoffs in 2017. Rookie WRs Rodney Adams and Stacy Coley are also under consideration for the job.

  Colts | T.Y. Hilton in rare company    Sun May 28, 12:40 AM

Indianapolis Colts WR T.Y. Hilton's 5,861 receiving yards through his first five seasons rank in the top 10 in NFL history, but Hilton said he is still focused on improving. 'Leave no stone unturned,' Hilton said. 'I work on everything - footwork, speed work. Just continue to train everything - my hands, eye-hand coordination.'

Footballguys view: Hilton has had over 1,000 yards receiving each of the last four years. During that time, he's finished as a top-10 fantasy WR twice...including his no5 ranking in 2016. His role is well established, and he's one of Andrew Luck's favorite targets. Hilton is a WR1 for fantasy owners with a current ADP of WR8 (2.04) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Bengals | Cody Core dedicated to improving     Sun May 28, 12:30 AM

Cincinnati Bengals WR Cody Core said he dedicated himself to eating better and training during the offseason and was able to add muscle without losing his speed.

Footballguys view: Core was the team's leading receiver in their Week 17 finale against the Ravens last year. He played in eight games as a rookie in 2016, and the sixth-round pick out of Ole Miss has intriguing upside. However, with the addition of WR John Ross in the first round of the 2017 NFL draft it leaves Core further down the depth chart. We're still interested in him in deep dynasty leagues.

  Eagles | Torrey Smith to return to form?    Sun May 28, 12:04 AM

Philadelphia Eagles WR Torrey Smith will look more like the receiver he was with the Baltimore Ravens, according to beat writer Tim McManus.

Footballguys view: That's all nice and well, but Smith hasn't had 1,000 yards receiving in a season since 2013. He should be more productive than he was in San Francisco (33 and 20 catches over the last two years), but don't expect Smith to get much fantasy production behind Alshon Jeffery, Jordan Matthews and Zach Ertz in the pecking order.

  Broncos | Carlos Henderson picking up offense    Sat May 27, 11:38 PM

Denver Broncos WR Carlos Henderson is 'swimming' when it comes to learning the offensive schemes, offensive coordinator Mike McCoy said Thursday, May 25.

Footballguys view: Henderson is an exciting rookie to add in dynasty leagues. He reminds some in the scouting community of Randall Cobb (Packers) with a dash of Hines Ward because of his aggressive run-after-the-catch ability. Henderson is the front-runner to win the no3 job behind Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders.

  Dolphins | Drew Morgan shining in OTAs    Sat May 27, 10:44 PM

Miami Dolphins WR Drew Morgan was able to repeatedly create separation and make catches during practice Thursday, May 25.

Footballguys view: Morgan was picked up as an undrafted free agent out of Arkansas this year. He has great feet and knows how to run a clean route, so the fact he's getting open in OTAs is no surprise. Morgan is not fast and has an upright running style that prevents him from beating the jam consistently. A slot/possession receiver, Morgan is a poor man's version of Wayne Chrebet. Buried on the Dolphins depth chart, Morgan is looking to impress in order to win a spot on the practice squad.

  Redskins | Terrelle Pryor focused on chemistry     Sat May 27, 09:55 PM

Washington Redskins WR Terrelle Pryor said he is spending as much time as possible with QB Kirk Cousins in order to build trust, and head coach Jay Gruden said the relationship between Pryor and Cousins off the field in translating to success on the field.

Footballguys view: The chemistry is a work in progress, but by the time the regular season rolls around we should see them on the same page. Cousins needs to find a new favorite target with DeSean Jackson and Pierre Garcon leaving in free agency. Pryor is the most likely candidate, and fantasy owners look at him as a WR2. He's going off the board at WR20 (4.03) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Lions | Marvin Jones more comfortable    Sat May 27, 09:51 PM

Detroit Lions WR Marvin Jones said he is a lot more comfortable with offensive coordinator Jim Bob Cooter's system entering this season after struggling to master the offense last year.

Footballguys view: Jones began last season on a tear, going over 100 yards receiving in two of the first three games. After his 205-yard game, Jones didn't eclipse triple digits as a receiver and some weeks he was almost invisible in the box score. If he's more comfortable this year, perhaps Jones can be more consistent.

  Redskins | Terrelle Pryor working out the kinks    Sat May 27, 09:22 PM

Washington Redskins WR Terrelle Pryor said the offense was a little sloppy when OTAs began but is improving thanks to a total team effort. 'We're getting better, and we're a long ways away, but I think tomorrow is going to be a brighter day.'

  Jaguars | Allen Hurns looking to improve    Sat May 27, 03:29 PM

Jacksonville Jaguars WR Allen Hurns said he knows he has to play better than he did in 2016 and has been working to improve during the offseason. Hurns has added some weight but has cut his body fat. He has also worked on improving his change of direction during routes and has been strengthening his legs to help avoid hamstring injuries.

Footballguys view: Fantasy owners would like to see him get back to the numbers he posted a couple of years ago. In 2015 he had 64 catches for 1,031 yards and 11 touchdowns. Hurns finished as the 15th fantasy wide receiver that year, but fell to 75th in 2016 as his numbers fell off and he only made it through 11 games. His current ADP of WR66 (14.05) in 12-team PPR leagues cooks in the risk associated with his up-and-down career so far.

  Bears | Three Bears kick returner options    Sat May 27, 02:49 PM

Chicago Bears RB Tarik Cohen, RB Benny Cunningham and WR Deonte Thompson are expected to compete for the kick returner job during training camp.

Footballguys view: Cohen may be the most exciting player to watch here. Nicknamed "Tarik the Freak" in college at North Carolina A&T, Cohen has some Darren Sproles (Eagles) to his game because of his compact build (5'6" 179 pounds) and incredible foot frequency.

  Rams | Robert Woods eyeing lead receiver role    Sat May 27, 01:00 PM

Los Angeles Rams WR Robert Woods is determined to be a 'No. 1 receiver,' according to the Los Angeles Times' Gary Klein.

Footballguys view: Woods is out to prove that he's more than a decent no2 wide receiver in the NFL. That's the role he played in Buffalo behind Sammy Watkins, but with his new team Woods will have a chance to be the main man. We see him as a low-ceiling WR1 for the Rams, especially since they made moves in the draft to add pass-catching talent like WR Cooper Kupp, WR Josh Reynolds and TE Gerald Everett. Projecting Woods to catch around 60-ish passes is fair, but that doesn't make him much of a fantasy asset. Woods is getting drafted as a late-round flier (WR73, 14.09) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Steelers | Martavis Bryant works with first-team    Sat May 27, 12:27 AM

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Martavis Bryant worked with the first-team offense during OTAs and 'looked great on the field while showing a more mature demeanor,' according to a team source.

Footballguys view: Most fully expect Bryant to win the starting job opposite Antonio Brown in 2017. Coming back from his suspension, Bryant will have to get back into football shape and stay clean in order to play up to his potential this year. He's a boom/bust fantasy propect this year, and Byrant is getting drafted at WR26 (5.07) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Redskins | Kirk Cousins working on timing    Sat May 27, 12:11 AM

Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins is still adjusting to throwing jumps ball and back-shoulder fades to WR Terrelle Pryor, according to head coach Jay Gruden.

Footballguys view: It will only take some time for Cousins to get used to his new target. DeSean Jackson (Buccaneers) and Pierre Garcon (49ers) left in free agency, so it will likely be Pryor playing as his top WR option in 2017. Pryor has a current ADP of WR20 (4.03) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Texans | DeAndre Hopkins learning from Wes Welker    Fri May 26, 11:40 PM

Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins said it has been great learning from assistant coach Wes Welker.

Footballguys view: Welker was a fine route runner during his time in the NFL. Hopkins is a different type of wide receiver from what Welker used to be, but he can still learn about setting up routes and getting open from the former Pro Bowler. With better QB play in 2017, Hopkins should get back to his expected level of production after a down season in 2016.

  Eagles | Nelson Agholor turning a corner    Fri May 26, 09:57 PM

Philadelphia Eagles WR Nelson Agholor has benefited from the offseason additions to the receiving corps, according to head coach Doug Pederson. 'As I've said all along, competition, man, sharpens you,' Pederson said Tuesday, May 23. 'And that's what I've seen from Nelson. He's done a great job already this spring.'

Footballguys view: A first-round pick in 2015, Agholor has been a bust as a pro. Even if he's better in 2017, Agholor is still fourth (at best) on the depth chart behind Alshon Jeffery, Torrey Smith and Jordan Matthews.

  Dolphins | Jakeem Grant working on route running    Fri May 26, 06:24 PM

Miami Dolphins WR Jakeem Grant has been working on improving his route running this offseason. Grant receiving some snaps at outside receiver during organized team activities Thursday, May 25.

Footballguys view: Grant is small (5'7" 172 pounds) but he can absolutely break ankles in the open field. He's lightning quick and can change direction without losing much speed. His main contributions should come as a return man, but the Dolphins could make a package of plays for him as a wide receiver too. In fantasy leagues that reward points for return yards, Grant is a player to monitor.

  Broncos | Denver inks Carlos Henderson    Fri May 26, 03:28 PM

Denver Broncos third-round pick WR Carlos Henderson (Louisiana Tech) signed his four-year rookie contract Friday, May 26. Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: We are excited about Henderson in dynasty leagues. Henderson is a tough, physical receiver who excels at running after the catch. Some in the scouting community have compared his game to Randall Cobb (Packers), and Henderson is an aggressive player who can win at the catch point. Henderson will work as the no3 WR for the Broncos behind Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders. He's got little value in redraft leagues but the skill set to be a Pro Bowl player in dynasty formats.

  Cowboys | Ryan Switzer to have 'significant' role    Fri May 26, 02:19 PM

Dallas Cowboys fourth-round pick WR Ryan Switzer is getting first-team reps in the slot while WR Cole Beasley is dealing hamstring soreness. However, while head coach Jason Garrett has made it clear while Switzer was drafted in part for his ability to back up Beasley, the Cowboys are working on packages for both to be on the field at the same time to take advantage of mismatches.

Footballguys view: Switzer plays a lot like Wes Welker. He's small but lightning fast and electric with the ball in his hands. Switzer has great foot frequency and can change direction on a dime without losing speed. He does have a small catch radius so passes need to be on point for him to be properly utilized as a receiver.

  Dolphins | Leonte Carroo not a lock to make team    Fri May 26, 01:46 PM

Miami Dolphins WR Leonte Carroo is expected to be the front-runner for the No. 4 receiver job, but it is far from certain he will make the team, according to the Miami Herald's Barry Jackson.

Footballguys view: Carroo may be the front-runner for the no4 job, but watch out for a guy like Rashawn Scott or Jakeem Grant behind him. Grant is more of the small-bodied, lightning quick returner while Scott plays a little like Allen Hurns. We'd be shocked if the team gave up on their third-round pick from the 2016 NFL draft. Carroo has the size/hands to be a reliable target but hasn't put it all together yet. He needs to be a better route runner as his speed won't get him separation at the pro level.

  Vikings | Michael Floyd contract info    Fri May 26, 02:37 AM

Minnesota Vikings WR Michael Floyd's one-year deal that contains no guaranteed money, according to ESPN's Ben Goessling. That means the team has no financial commitment to Floyd should he fail to make the final cut.

Footballguys view: The Vikings had to structure his deal this way. Floyd got bounced from the Cardinals after his "extreme DUI" last year and did nothing with the Patriots when they picked him up late in the season. Going back home to Minnesota should help him, but the team wasn't going to throw around money carelessly for a player with Floyd's backstory.

  Bills | Zay Jones injury update    Fri May 26, 02:03 AM

Buffalo Bills WR Zay Jones (knee) is 'progressing well,' according to head coach Sean McDermott. Jones' status remains week-to-week.

Footballguys view: Good news for the rookie here. Jones was one of the most productive players in this draft class at any position. He can become a reliable target for QB Tyrod Taylor, but the rookie needs to get healthy and build chemistry this offseason and through training camp.

  Eagles | Carson Wentz talks up Alshon Jeffery    Thu May 25, 11:21 PM

Philadelphia Eagles QB Carson Wentz said he loves what WR Alshon Jeffery brings to the table and is looking forward to developing chemistry with the receiver. 'He plays on time, he knows what he's doing, his catch radius is impressive,' Wentz said 'That's the first thing that jumps out at me. I'm just looking forward to continuing to build that relationship.'

Footballguys view: Imagine how happy Wentz is after the lack of talent he had to work with last year. The second-year quarterback has a legitimate no1 WR in Jeffery, and the duo could produce at a high level for the Eagles this year. Wentz is still learning and more of a bye week QB2 for fantasy owners. Jeffery is proven and is getting drafted at WR16 (3.07) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Panthers | Devin Funchess remains out    Thu May 25, 10:37 PM

Carolina Panthers WR Devin Funchess (ankle) remained out of drills during OTAs Thursday, May 25.

Footballguys view: A second-round pick in 2015, Funchess has had a disappointing pro career. With the additions of RB Christian McCaffrey (1st round) and WR Curtis Samuel (2nd round), Funchess is going to find himself behind in the pecking order. He needs to get healthy and start impressing on the practice field.

  Raiders | Amari Cooper wants more    Thu May 25, 09:35 PM

Oakland Raiders WR Amari Cooper said he can have 'a lot more production' and is working to be 'dominant' this season.

Footballguys view: The last two years, Cooper has had over 1,000 yards each season. He's finished as a WR2 in each season, one as a low-end WR2 (2015, 23) and one as a high-end WR2 (2016, WR14). With a healthy Derek Carr and an improved rushing attack, we could see Cooper avoid the late season swoon that he's suffered each year. The ability to be a WR1 is clearly there, and fantasy owners are currently drafting Cooper at WR10 (2.08) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Panthers | Coach defends Kelvin Benjamin    Thu May 25, 09:22 PM

Carolina Panthers WR Kelvin Benjamin has been facing unfair criticism, according to head coach Ron Rivera, and Rivera said Benjamin has 'looked great' on the field.

Footballguys view: It seems like everyone on social media has been fat shaming Benjamin over photos surfacing from camp where he looks out of shape. Benjamin is not where he needs to be physically, but he's got plenty of time to get there before training camp starts.

  Saints | Michael Thomas has put on weight    Thu May 25, 05:47 PM

New Orleans Saints WR Michael Thomas has added some extra weight this offseason, increasing from 210 pounds to 220 pounds.

Footballguys view: The added weight should help Thomas absorb the punishment of the NFL. It may also help him push around defenders that will be much smaller. With Brandin Cooks (Patriots) gone, Thomas should once again finish as a top-10 fantasy WR (he was 9th last year in standard leagues).

  Broncos | Demaryius Thomas feels better than ever    Thu May 25, 05:29 PM

Denver Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas said he's feeling the best he's felt in his entire career.

Footballguys view: Thomas was not himself last year as he struggled through hip problems and an injury he sustained on the first play in Week 1 of 2016. A healthy Thomas in a Mike McCoy offense crafted to help him be dominant, means the veteran could bounce back as a top-15 fantasy WR in 2017 (he was 18th in standard leagues last year).

  Giants | Odell Beckham will be at minicamp    Thu May 25, 04:47 PM

New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. is not participating in voluntary workouts, but he will 'for sure' attend minicamp June 13.

Footballguys view: Voluntary workouts are not high on his priority list, but when the work becomes mandatory expect Beckham to be there. It's not a big deal as some are making it out to be....but hanging around Johnny Manziel will do that sort of thing.

  Ravens | Breshad Perriman impressing at OTAs    Thu May 25, 04:13 PM

Baltimore Ravens WR Breshad Perriman is making his mark at organized team activities. TE Dennis Pitta said no one on the Ravens is making more plays at OTAs than Perriman.

Footballguys view: Perriman is a player to watch so long as he can stay healthy. A first-round pick in 2015, Perriman missed his rookie season due to a knee injury. Last year (also a bit banged up), Perriman had 33 catches for 499 receiving yards and three touchdowns. He's worth taking a late-round flier on just because of his size/speed combination and the lack of proven WRs not named Mike Wallace in Baltimore.

  Jets | ArDarius Stewart signs rookie deal    Thu May 25, 03:45 PM

New York Jets WR ArDarius Stewart signed his four-year rookie contract Thursday, May 25. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Eric Decker and Quincy Enunwa are the top two receivers in a passing offense which is terrifying for all the wrong reasons. Stewart has the chance to contribute immediately, but that doesn't stand for much, given how bad the offense has the potential to be. Long term, though, Stewart has the talent to contribute when they actually put together an offense.

  Vikings | Rodney Adams signs contract    Thu May 25, 02:44 PM

Minnesota Vikings WR Rodney Adams signed his four-year rookie deal Thursday, May 25. Financial terms were not disclosed.

  Vikings | Laquon Treadwell impressing coordinator    Thu May 25, 02:36 PM

Minnesota Vikings WR Laquon Treadwell is having a good offseason so far, according to offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur. Treadwell has been 'on point' from a mental standpoint. He has done well route-running, catching the ball and blocking, too. Shurmur said he's pleased with the progress Treadwell has made from a year ago.

Footballguys view: All this is great and we're happy to hear it. However, as Han Solo would say (and we're paraphrasing, so pardon us) but good in shorts and a T-shirt is one thing. Good against the living? That's something else. We're looking to see him perform against actual defenses before we get too carried away. Add in the fact that he has to claw past Stefon Diggs and Adam Thielen and we're thinking Treadwell's impact could remain on the low side.

  Bears | Victor Cruz joins Bears    Thu May 25, 02:22 PM

Free-agent WR Victor Cruz (Giants) is signing a one-year deal with the Chicago Bears Thursday, May 25. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Cruz actually could have an impact with the Bears if he has even an ounce of gas left in the tank. Kevin White is always hurt and other than Markus Wheaton, there's nobody else there who seems like they have promise behind White and Cameron Meredith. Mind you, Cruz looked done last season with the New York Giants, so buyer beware.

  Giants | Odell Beckham absent Thursday    Thu May 25, 11:44 AM

New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. was absent from voluntary workouts again Thursday, May 25.

Footballguys view: He's very busy hanging out with Johnny Manziel and signing Nike contracts. Listen, Beckham Jr has the timing with Eli Manning down. Skipping OTAs won't hurt that. But the optics are less than awesome considering our last two impressions of him were 1) a boat trip right before a 2) playoff game he was terrible in. We hope Beckham Jr has grown up as his talent is undeniable and the only thing stopping him is himself.

  Redskins | Josh Doctson impressing    Thu May 25, 11:38 AM

Washington Redskins WR Josh Doctson (Achilles') has been impressive in organized team activities, according to head coach Jay Gruden. 'The big thing for him is the confidence in his Achilles', and I think he's got that right now,' Gruden said. 'The past two days he's looked better and better. It looks like he can run down the field. He made a good catch down the sideline today and (he has) strong hands, we know that about him.'

Footballguys view: Doctson had tweeted out he was close to 100 percent back in March, so this is continued good news. A lot of folks thought he was the best receiver in the 2016 NFL Draft, but his Achilles injury hurt his draft stock. With DeSean Jackson and Pierre Garcon gone, Doctson only has Terrelle Pryor to jump over for a significant amount of targets. He'll start behind Jordan Reed and Jamison Crowder in terms of target distribution, but that can change with a solid preseason.

We're also hoping Ryan Tannehill finally has it all click and the offensive line gives him to find Landry more in the red zone.

Minnesota Vikings WR Laquon Treadwell has reported the run with the first-team offense alongside Stefon Diggs and Adam Thielen during OTAs, according to Minneapolis Star Tribune's Matt Vensel.

Footballguys view: The Vikings brought Treadwell along slowly, and they could do that because Diggs and Thielen were so good. It's going to be hard for Treadwell to push his way into the mix but we like what he brings to the table but he has to show more consistency and better execution than he did last season and now has Michael Floyd to compete with as well.

Chicago Bears WR Kevin White has spent the last few months working to align his stride after a stress fracture in his left tibia ruined his rookie season and a left fibular spiral fracture and severe ankle ligament damage cost him 12 games last season, according to the Chicago Tribune's Rich Campbell.

Footballguys view: White has a lot to catch up on after missing his rookie season in 2015. A first-round pick in 2015, White needed to refine his route-running ability coming out of college...and that's still the case. He should be considered a potentially high upside WR5 for fantasy owners. White will compete for targets with Cameron Meredith in the starting lineup.

Cleveland Browns WR Kenny Britt (undisclosed) did not participate in organized team activities Wednesday, May 24, but head coach Hue Jackson said he expects Britt will be back on the field next week.

Footballguys view: Britt is going to be the top WR for the Browns in 2017 after signing a four-year, $32.5 million contract earlier this year. Coming off the first 1,000 yard season of is career, Britt will have to overcome bad QB play (again) in order to match or best that production.
