  Eagles | Jeremy Maclin expects offense to be fine    Thu Apr 24, 08:52 PM

Philadelphia Eagles WR Jeremy Maclin said he expects the offense to be fine even though they lost Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson this offseason. '[Head coach Chip Kelly] said it himself: The offense is not built around one guy,' Maclin said. 'We have multiple guys that go out there and make plays.'

Footballguys view: Maclin is taking the leadership role seriously. The Eagles have enough weapons to support that confidence even without Jackson and especially if Maclin is healthy.

  Bears | Marquess Wilson top candidate for No. 3 WR job    Thu Apr 24, 08:42 PM

Chicago Bears WR Marquess Wilson is considered the leading candidate for the No. 3 wide receiver job this upcoming season.

Footballguys view: There aren't many fantasy points after Alshon Jeffery and Brandon Marshall - especially with Martellus Bennett and Matt Forte in the rotation. So while it's great for Wilson, his impact on fantasy teams is apt to be very minimal.

  Seahawks | Armanti Edwards worked out    Thu Apr 24, 07:11 PM

The Seattle Seahawks worked out free-agent WR Armanti Edwards (Browns) Thursday, April 24.

Footballguys view: A converted quarterback, Edwards never amounted to much in his previous stint as a Carolina Panther. If he were signed, it more than likely be as a camp body.

  Giants | Victor Cruz wants team to target wide receiver    Thu Apr 24, 03:27 PM

New York Giants WR Victor Cruz said he would like the team to target a wide receiver in the NFL draft. 'A (big-play receiver) is something we need in this offense to be successful,' Cruz continued. 'An outside guy that can do the job and that can help fuel all the other receivers in the locker room and put some fire up under them to get them where they have to be.'

Footballguys view: Losing Hakeem Nicks isn't the worst thing in the world, but it does leave them a little short of big-play veteran wide receivers. Analysts have mocked North Carolina tight end Eric Ebron to them, but could they aim for a guy like Mike Evans or Odell Beckham Jr? It's not that big a stretch and quarterback Eli Manning needs some more weapons. A rookie across from Cruz could be a very productive fantasy rookie wide receivers.

  Eagles | Jeremy Maclin fully recovered    Thu Apr 24, 01:10 PM

Philadelphia Eagles WR Jeremy Maclin (knee) said he is fully recovered from a torn anterior cruciate ligament. Maclin said if training camp started today, he would be a full go and have no limitations.

Footballguys view: Great news for the Eagles, especially with DeSean Jackson out of the picture. Maclin is a very productive receiver when healthy, though he has yet to break 1,000 in a season. This will be his best chance since he won't have a lot of competition which gives him some potential upside but we see him as a WR2 to start.

  Jaguars | Cecil Shorts not fully recovered    Wed Apr 23, 11:49 PM

Jacksonville Jaguars WR Cecil Shorts (groin) is still not quite a full strength, but he said Wednesday, April 23, that he expects to be soon. 'I'm on the right path where I'm able to run without any pain,' Shorts said. 'I still have some work to do and I'm not 100 percent yet, but I'm looking to get there soon. Now, I have to get my strength back and confidence back. Head coach Gus Bradley said Shorts' rehab has gone well, and the receiver is leaner and in great shape.

Footballguys view: We'll see if Shorts gets a lighter workload until the team hits training camp. As it stands right now, Shorts is the best receiving option on the roster. He's a WR3 with upside for your fantasy team if healthy.

  Giants | Victor Cruz fully healthy    Wed Apr 23, 04:23 PM

New York Giants WR Victor Cruz (knee) said he is 100 percent healthy and will not be limited during offseason workouts.

Footballguys view: Cruz's fantasy stock crashed and burned with the rest of the Giants offense last year, but he should bounce back in a west-coast offense that suits his ability to get open with ease in the slot.

  Bills | Sammy Watkins to visit    Wed Apr 23, 12:01 PM

The Buffalo Bills are meeting with Clemson WR Sammy Watkins Wednesday, April 23. The team likely would have to trade up in the first round of the 2014 NFL Draft if they want to select Watkins.

Footballguys view: Watkins could go off of the board as high as #2 to St. Louis, but somewhere between #3 (Jacksonville) and #7 (Tampa Bay) is more likely.

  Dolphins | Mike Wallace digs new scheme    Wed Apr 23, 10:25 AM

Miami Dolphins WR Mike Wallace said the team's new offensive system fits his big-play style.

Footballguys view: Wallace actually had a better season than his stats last year indicate. Ryan Tannehill had trouble throwing an accurate deep ball, and the west coast offense wasn't the best fit for Wallace's abilities. He'll be undervalued in redraft leagues if he falls out of the top 5 or 6 rounds.

  Lions | Golden Tate off to quick start    Tue Apr 22, 10:47 PM

Detroit Lions head coach Jim Caldwell said Tuesday, April 22, that he can already see a rapport between QB Matthew Stafford and new target WR Golden Tate. 'Matthew is certainly getting a good feel for Golden,' Caldwell said. 'Those two I think are going to function well.'

Footballguys view: Tate is set up to make a splash as a WR3/Flex play with upside as long as the Lions don't take a wide receiver early in the draft. Calvin Johnson draws coverage and we have not seen the numbers possible with a talent of Tate's caliber lining up on the other side of the formation.

Baldwin said Tuesday, April 22, that he has not yet signed his second-round contract tender, and he said his goal is to play in Seattle 'for a long time.'

  Chiefs | Staff treating Dwayne Bowe like an adult    Tue Apr 22, 06:58 PM

  Chiefs | Dwayne Bowe focused on winning    Tue Apr 22, 06:34 PM

Kansas City Chiefs WR Dwayne Bowe is focused more on working hard with his teammates and winning than individual statistics entering the 2014 season. Bowe also hired a personal trainer and nutritionist.

Footballguys view: Bowe was trending up coming out of last season, and he is still an undisputed #1 receiver with a decent quarterback. He is vastly undervalued in early drafts, often falling out of the top 10 rounds.

  Bills | Visit with Mike Evans    Tue Apr 22, 02:25 PM

The Buffalo Bills visited with Texas A&M WR Mike Evans Tuesday, April 22.

Footballguys view: Evans might not make it past the Buccaneers at #7, but if he does, he could easily go to any of the three teams picking after them in the top 10, including the Bills at #9. Wide receiver is not a pressing need for the team, and Mike Williams will get a shot to fill the role of the big downfield passcatcher if they pass on Evans.

  Falcons | Julio Jones to be limited    Tue Apr 22, 01:02 PM

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (foot) will be limited during the team's offseason workouts while he recovers from offseason foot surgery. 'Julio is participating with our athletic performance department,' head coach Mike Smith said. 'He will be able to get out on the field and do some walk-through stuff with us when we start going. Our focus on Julio is one thing, and that's having him prepared for our opener. ... He's progressing well. We're not going to do anything to hinder his timeframe in terms of getting back to work with us.'

Footballguys view: Jones still appears to be on track to be his old self by the time the season opens. He'll be drafted as a mid-low WR1 in fantasy leagues with a likely second-round price tag.

  Bears | Joshua Morgan signed    Mon Apr 21, 03:54 PM

The Chicago Bears have signed free-agent WR Joshua Morgan (Redskins) to a one-year deal. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Morgan is a good blocker and a rugged receiver, but a leg injury on a meaningless play in 2011 seems to have sidetracked his career development after Washington gave him a much too large two-year deal for over ten million dollars. He'll push second-year receiver Marquess Wilson and free agent Domenik Hixon to be the #3 in a potent passing offense.

  Bengals | A.J. Green puts on some weight    Mon Apr 21, 03:23 PM

  Bengals | Exercise A.J. Green's option    Mon Apr 21, 03:13 PM

The Cincinnati Bengals have exercised the fifth-year option in WR A.J. Green's contract.

  Steelers | Like two WR prospects    Mon Apr 21, 02:53 PM

The Pittsburgh Steelers have interest in Louisiana State WR Odell Beckham and Oregon State WR Brandin Cooks. Both could be available when the team selects in the first round of the 2014 NFL Draft if they want to take a wide receiver.

Footballguys view: Beckham is unlikely to fall out of the top 20 and could join the Steelers passing game, which has been without a big wide receiver since Plaxico Burress left and Limas Sweed busted as a second-round pick. Beckham would give them three speedy, shifty wideouts, along with Antonio Brown and Markus Wheaton - a college teammate of Cooks.

  Eagles | Odell Beckham to visit    Mon Apr 21, 02:22 AM

LSU WR Odell Beckham plans to visit the Philadelphia Eagles sometime in the coming week.

Footballguys view: The Eagles could use a playmaker like Beckham. He's dangerous in the open field, and Beckham is not afraid to run routes over the middle. He would be a perfect replacement for DeSean Jackson (Washington) in the Chip Kelly offense.

  Jets | Mike Evans to visit    Sun Apr 20, 11:24 PM

The New York Jets are scheduled to meet with Texas A&M WR Mike Evans Monday, April 21.

Footballguys view: Even though they added Eric Decker in free agency, the Jets need a true number one wide receiver. Evans could be that guy. He reminds some in the scouting community of Jimmy Graham because of his size, wingspan and ability to win at the point of the catch.

  Jets | Jarvis Landry to visit team    Sun Apr 20, 03:40 PM

Louisiana State WR Jarvis Landry will visit the New York Jets Monday, April 21.

Footballguys view: Landry is a talented receiver who can make difficult catches in traffic. He doesn't get much separation in his routes, but Landry has good concentration. Landry's game is reminiscent of Eric Decker, the veteran free agent who came over from the Broncos earlier this year. He should be a second-round pick.

  Jets | Odell Beckham to visit team    Sun Apr 20, 03:34 PM

Updating a previous report, Louisiana State WR Odell Beckham will visit the New York Jets Monday, April 21, and Tuesday, April 22.

Footballguys view: Beckham is likely to go off the board in the first round. Many consider him the third-best receiver available in the draft behind Sammy Watkins and Mike Evans. He's incredibly athletic, has insane body control and Beckham as the speed to be a threat after the catch. Even though the Jets added Eric Decker in free agency, they are still looking for a true number one wide receiver.

  Jets | Marqise Lee to visit team    Sun Apr 20, 03:31 PM

Southern California WR Marqise Lee will visit the New York Jets Sunday, April 20, and Monday, April 21.

Footballguys view: Lee is a good route runner who does a good job of quickly making his break at the top of the route. He body catches too many passes which leads to bobbled catches, incompletions and interceptions. This also holds back how much he can gain after the catch. Lee is likely a second-round pick.

  Dolphins | Odell Beckham to visit    Sun Apr 20, 02:30 AM

The Miami Dolphins plan to bring in LSU WR Odell Beckham with one of their 30 allotted non-local visits.

Footballguys view: Beckham is likely to go off the board in the first round. Many consider him the third-best receiver available in the draft behind Sammy Watkins and Mike Evans. He's incredibly athletic, has insane body control and Beckham as the speed to be a threat after the catch. Beckham would add another weapon around Ryan Tannehill.

  Dolphins | May be last season for Brian Hartline in Miami    Sun Apr 20, 02:15 AM

The Miami Dolphins may let WR Brian Hartline walk following the 2014 season if the team succeeds in drafting a receiver in the second round of the NFL Draft. Releasing Hartline would save the team $4 million.

Footballguys view: The Dolphins need better weapons in the passing game. Hartline is a sure-handed receiver, but he lacks much danger after the catch.

  Redskins | Andre Roberts could be a returner    Sat Apr 19, 11:18 AM

The Washington Redskins may consider using WR Andre Roberts as a kick and punt returner this upcoming season, but he did not have great numbers when handled the role with the Arizona Cardinals.

Footballguys view: Roberts saw his potential playing time cut when the team added DeSean Jackson. They want to get him on the field as much as they can as a third receiver and return man. Roberts has good speed and elusiveness in the open field.

  Redskins | DeSean Jackson unlikely to be used as returner    Sat Apr 19, 11:07 AM

The Washington Redskins likely will not use WR DeSean Jackson as a punt returner very often because they want him to make plays on offense.

Footballguys view: Maybe just maybe the team would use him in a critical situation. He's too valuable to risk injury as a regular return man.
