  Buccaneers | Donteea Dye in lead for fifth spot    Fri Aug 26, 01:00 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Donteea Dye is in the lead for the fifth receiver spot. Dye's ability to return kicks has stood out, but he needs to become a more consistent weapon in the receiving game.

  Browns | Josh Gordon for a second rounder?    Fri Aug 26, 11:23 AM

Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon was part of trade discussions, and the package Cleveland sought was a second-round pick and more, according to sources. The team denied listening to offers.

  Saints | Brandon Coleman not standing out    Fri Aug 26, 10:18 AM

New Orleans Saints WR Brandon Coleman has had a 'pedestrian' camp and preseason, according to head coach Sean Payton. His roster spot is in question nearing the final week of camp.

  Falcons | Justin Hardy out for the game    Thu Aug 25, 10:15 PM

Atlanta Falcons WR Justin Hardy (ankle) will not return against the Miami Dolphins Thursday, Aug. 25, after suffering an ankle injury.

Footballguys view: Hardy has looked more settled this summer, but he's still the third wheel behind Julio Jones and Mohamed Sanu and not worth a roster spot.

  Falcons | Julio Jones' ankle injury not serious    Thu Aug 25, 10:06 PM

Updating a previous report, Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (ankle) will not return against the Miami Dolphins Thursday, Aug. 25, but head coach Dan Quinn said Jones could have returned if needed.

Footballguys view: Nothing to see here, move along. Jones will be fine by Week 1 and we expect him to put up solid WR1 numbers this season.

  Falcons | Julio Jones injures ankle    Thu Aug 25, 09:05 PM

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (ankle) is questionable to return against the Miami Dolphins Thursday, Aug. 25, after injuring his ankle.

Footballguys view: They won't take any chances with Jones, even if it is the third preseason game. It's not as if they are unsure what he is capable of. Jones remains a WR1 for fantasy purposes and this ankle injury should amount to nothing.

  Dolphins | Griff Whalen on roster bubble    Thu Aug 25, 08:44 PM

Miami Dolphins WR Griff Whalen has not done anything to cement the need for the team to carry a sixth wide receiver, especially if they have to go into the regular season with three quarterbacks and three centers.

Footballguys view: With Jarvis Landry, DeVante Parker and Kenny Stills ahead of him, Whalen would have had a hard time generating any production.

  Browns | Browns not trying to trade Josh Gordon    Thu Aug 25, 08:37 PM

Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon said he wants to stay put, while the team has said there are no plans to trade the 25-year-old wideout. 'Listening (to trade offers) is probably a mischaracterization,' said Browns executive vice president of football operations Sashi Brown. 'We've said all we needed to say about it. We're not looking to trade Josh.'

Footballguys view: It makes sense. If Gordon can stay clean, he's a huge building block for the offense and given his off-field issues, the Browns can probably get him at a decent bargain when his contract is up. Missing four games keeps his value down, as does the general offensive outlook, so we have him at WR4.

  Bengals | A.J. Green could miss early-season game    Thu Aug 25, 07:29 PM

Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green said there is 'no way' he is missing the birth of his first child, and he would miss a regular season game if it comes to that. His first child is due in about a month.

Footballguys view: Fantasy owners need to keep this in mind when Green's child is born. He may not miss any time, but who knows when the stork is going to deliver that new bundle of joy.

  Jets | No Quincy Enunwa Saturday    Thu Aug 25, 04:46 PM

New York Jets WR Quincy Enunwa (concussion) will not play versus the New York Giants Saturday, Aug. 27, according to head coach Todd Bowles.

Footballguys view: They're going to play it safe with Enunwa, whose flexibility to play receiver as well as tight end could be critical to the offense. He's not worth more than a flier as a WR7 or so, but is worth keeping one eye on as the season progresses.

  Ravens | Two Baltimore receivers won't play    Thu Aug 25, 04:29 PM

Baltimore Ravens WRs Steve Smith (Achilles') and Breshad Perriman (knee) are not expected to play Saturday, Aug. 27, against the Detroit Lions. They did not practice Thursday, Aug. 25.

Footballguys view: No sense in rushing either one back before Week 1. We see Smith as a solid WR5, as it is unlikely he gets back into the groove he was in before his injury last season. Having missed a whole season, Perriman is a bit behind and so we see him as no more than a WR7, if that.

  Cardinals | Larry Fitzgerald's status uncertain    Thu Aug 25, 03:15 PM

Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald (knee) is not participating in practice Thursday, Aug. 25, and head coach Bruce Arians said he is not sure if Fitzgerald will be able to play in the preseason game against the Houston Texans Sunday, Aug. 28.

Footballguys view: They might as well rest him. It's not like they don't know what he can do. We know it too, and see him as a solid WR3 this season, right where his current ADP is as WR26, No. 56 player overall.

  Cardinals | John Brown practicing    Thu Aug 25, 02:25 PM

Arizona Cardinals WR John Brown (concussion) is participating in practice Thursday, Aug. 25.

Footballguys view: We're not sold we'll see him against the Houston Texans on Sunday but he should be OK for Week 1. We see Brown as a WR4 behind Michael Floyd and Larry Fitzgerald, with occasional production but not enough consistency if everyone else is healthy.

  Giants | Victor Cruz has good chance to play    Thu Aug 25, 01:51 PM

New York Giants head coach Ben McAdoo said he is very optimistic about WR Victor Cruz's (groin) availability for the preseason game against the New York Jets Saturday, Aug. 27.

Footballguys view: We aren't optimistic about Cruz's fantasy impact though. His ADP is brutal, as he stands as WR68 and we can't blame early drafters for avoiding him. You should take your cue from them.

  Lions | Detroit going no-huddle often    Thu Aug 25, 09:12 AM

Detroit Lions QB Matthew Stafford and the other Lions quarterbacks have run a no-huddle offense 62% of the time this preseason. The Lions ran a no-huddle offense just 7% of the time last season. According to ProFootballFocus, Stafford has completed all six of his passes for 108 yards when targeting WRs Golden Tate and Marvin Jones out of the no-huddle. He's 6-for-11 passing for 63 yards on the rest of his throws combined. Overall, Stafford has completed 70.6% of his passes this preseason.

Footballguys view: We like the sound of this as it keeps Stafford moving and avoids letting him sit in the pocket too long while he waits for a downfield option to get open. Of course, you have to execute or your defense gets back on the field too quickly and can't rest. Stafford is a rock-solid QB2 but you can add in a dash of upside this year if the high-tempo offense works.

  Titans | Kendall Wright remains sidelined    Thu Aug 25, 12:52 AM

Tennessee Titans WR Kendall Wright (hamstring) continues to miss practice due to a hamstring injury.

Footballguys view: Wright's time with the team could be short. Free agent acquisition Rishard Matthews and rookie Tajae Sharpe are both playing well, and there is some veteran depth the team has brought in with Andre Johnson and Harry Douglas. Wright has to get healthy, and soon, or he will have no impact this season. As it is, we see him as no more than a WR6.

  Bengals | Brandon LaFell yet to lock up job    Thu Aug 25, 12:27 AM

Cincinnati Bengals WR Brandon LaFell (hand) has yet to play in a preseason game due to a hand injury. He and rookie WR Tyler Boyd are considered the top two candidates to start opposite WR A.J. Green. LaFell is likely to play in the preseason game Sunday, Aug. 28, against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Footballguys view: It looks very much like Boyd will win this job since LaFell is stuck on the trainer's table. Boyd's ADP is currently sitting at 165 overall and WR58, while LaFell has fallen completely off the map. That means you can get him cheap and late, but we're feeling it isn't worth it or at least that the payoff might never come.

  Chiefs | KC parts with Mike Williams    Wed Aug 24, 10:23 PM

The Kansas City Chiefs released WR Mike Williams Wednesday, Aug. 24, the team confirmed.

Footballguys view: And that's a wrap (likely) for Williams' career in the NFL. He was trying to get things back on track with the Chiefs but didn't impress in camp or the preseason. We don't think many -- if any -- teams will be interested now that he's on the open market...again.

  Broncos | Bennie Fowler shooting for Week 1    Wed Aug 24, 10:12 PM

Denver Broncos WR Bennie Fowler (elbow) showed up at practice Wednesday, Aug. 24, without a brace on his right elbow for the first time since fracturing it in a preseason game against the Chicago Bears two weeks ago. He was able to do some running before practice. He and the team are shooting for a return for the regular season opener Thursday, Sept. 8, against the Carolina Panthers.

Footballguys view: Fowler was competing with Cody Latimer to be the team's no.3 WR before this elbow injury. He's a big-bodied receiver who isn't afraid of catching passes over the middle. Fowler is not as dynamic as Latimer, but he's more reliable. Fantasy owners in super deep dynasty leagues should be monitoring him.

  Eagles | Jordan Matthews promises to play Week 1    Wed Aug 24, 08:15 PM

Philadelphia Eagles WR Jordan Matthews (knee) promised he'd be ready for Week 1. The wideout hasn't played yet this preseason.

Footballguys view: The Eagles have been working towards this all along. Matthews should be able to get some practice time in before the start of the regular season. Fantasy owners need to consider him a potential value pick where he's going off boards right now. He's WR29 (5.10) in 12-team PPR leagues, but there's a chance he could finish as a mid-range WR2 as the primary target in the Eagles passing game in 2016.

  Eagles | Dorial Green-Beckham to work with starters    Wed Aug 24, 06:41 PM

Philadelphia Eagles WR Dorial Green-Beckham will receive snaps with the first-team offense during the preseason game against the Indianapolis Colts Saturday, Aug. 27, according to head coach Doug Pederson.

Footballguys view: Talent has never been a question with Green-Beckham. If properly used and motivated, Green-Beckham could develop into one of the best WRs in the game. We're not counting on that, but we will be watching to see how he transitions with his new team.

  Cardinals | John Brown not practicing    Wed Aug 24, 05:03 PM

Arizona Cardinals WR John Brown (concussion) is not participating in practice Wednesday, Aug. 24, because he is dealing with a headache.

  Cardinals | Larry Fitzgerald not rushing back    Wed Aug 24, 03:37 PM

Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald (knee) said he could be taking part in practice but does not want to suffer a setback this close to the start of the season.

Footballguys view: The veteran knows his body better than anybody else. There's no need to rush him back to the field as Fitzgerald plans for Week 1 of the regular season. Fantasy owners should consider Fitzgerald a WR3 with upside. He's going off the board at WR28 (5.07) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Browns | Corey Coleman past hamstring injury    Wed Aug 24, 12:24 PM

Cleveland Browns WR Corey Coleman (hamstring) said he is over his hamstring injury and will be ready to play against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Friday, Aug. 26.

Footballguys view: Good news for the rookie here. Coleman's game is built on speed, speed and more speed. The hamstring injury has slowed him down, but it sounds like he's on track for this game and Week 1 of the regular season. Coleman should be the lead WR for the Browns while Josh Gordon is suspended the first four games of the year.

  Eagles | Jordan Matthews not practicing    Wed Aug 24, 12:16 PM

Philadelphia Eagles WR Jordan Matthews (knee) did not practice Wednesday, Aug. 24.

Footballguys view: He's got a bone bruise on his knee, but all signs indicate that Matthews will be ready for Week 1 of the regular season. Fantasy owners should consider him a WR3 in 2016. He's going off the board at WR29 (5.10) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Browns | Josh Gordon set to play Friday    Wed Aug 24, 12:07 PM

Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon (quadriceps) will play against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Friday, Aug. 26, according to head coach Hue Jackson.

Footballguys view: We're excited to see Gordon on the football field this week. He's suspended the first four games of the year, but when he returns Gordon could put up WR1 numbers. He's currently WR31 (6.02) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Panthers | Corey Brown out of practice    Wed Aug 24, 10:17 AM

Carolina Panthers WR Corey Brown (shoulder) is out of practice Wednesday, Aug. 24, with a shoulder injury.

Footballguys view: Brown added 10 pounds of muscle this offseason to help with his durability. A shoulder injury is going to set him back for a time, but he's still only the no.4 WR on the depth chart in Carolina.

  Patriots | Nate Washington let go    Wed Aug 24, 10:02 AM

New England Patriots WR Nate Washington was released Wednesday, Aug. 24.

Footballguys view: Washington had been doing nothing of note during training camp, so this move comes as no surprise. There might be some team out there willing to take a chance on the veteran if injuries hit at the position during the rest of the preseason.

  Raiders | Seth Roberts not standing out    Tue Aug 23, 10:50 PM

Oakland Raiders WR Seth Roberts hasn't been standing out in training camp or the preseason, as he head coach Jack Del Rio did not seem overly impressed Tuesday, Aug. 23. 'I would say Seth has been OK. Yeah, he's been OK. He made a really nice catch last week in practice. I think he's been working at it. I think he's starting to feel pushed a little bit, which is what we'd like to have. Yeah, he's been a good player for us,' Del Rio said.

Footballguys view: It sounds like the no.3 wideout in Oakland is in the coach's doghouse. Earlier this offseason QB Derek Carr praised Roberts, and his emergence could help further strengthen this passing game. However, Roberts needs to pick it up if he wants to duplicate or best his numbers from last year (32 catches, 480 yards, 5 touchdowns).

  Packers | Jordy Nelson remains on limited duty    Tue Aug 23, 09:57 PM

Green Bay Packers WR Jordy Nelson worked with QB Aaron Rodgers in practice Tuesday, Aug. 23, but Nelson was once again held out of competitive, 11-on-11 periods. He might not play in any preseason games, and he and Rodgers might only have a handful of practices together before the Week 1 opener against the Jacksonville Jaguars. However, Rodgers believes it will be enough. 'Because I know exactly where he's going to be,' Rodgers said. 'That's the beauty of us playing together for a long time.'

Footballguys view: Nelson is working his way back from the tendinitis that was bothering him earlier this month. The team is taking it easy on him with a plan on Nelson being near full strength for Week 1 of the regular season. Nelson is a WR1 for fantasy owners, and you can snare him around WR10 (2.05) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Giants | Victor Cruz impresses at camp    Tue Aug 23, 08:20 PM

New York Giants WR Victor Cruz (groin) did not show any signs of a lingering groin injury at practice Tuesday, Aug. 23, and he displayed quickness off the line of scrimmage. Cruz was a full participant in practice for the first time since Aug. 8.

Footballguys view: Let's see how Cruz does the day after a big day on the practice field. Oftentimes when returning from an injury, it's the day after that can show some soreness. If all signs look good, Cruz might be able to participate in the team's third preseason game this week. We feel the Giants will likely keep him out until the start of the regular season.

  Redskins | Josh Doctson could be ready soon    Tue Aug 23, 06:52 PM

Washington Redskins WR Josh Doctson (Achilles') could take the field as early as the Redskins' final preseason game. Head coach Jay Gruden said the 'total expectation' is for Doctson to be good to go by Week 1, although he is not at 100% health yet. Gruden does believe that Doctson is in a good place from a mental standpoint.

Footballguys view: Achilles' injuries are nothing to mess around with. Doctson is a savvy route-runner who could compete for the team's no.3 WR spot with Jamison Crowder. Look for Washington to ease him in the lineup.

  Lions | Golden Tate back at practice    Tue Aug 23, 06:10 PM

Detroit Lions WR Golden Tate (undisclosed) returned to practice Tuesday, Aug. 23. The extent of his participation was not disclosed, however.

Footballguys view: Tate should catch a ton of passes for the Lions this year as a featured WR. We see him as a low-end WR2 for fantasy owners in standard-scoring leagues.

  Panthers | Corey Brown leaves early    Tue Aug 23, 04:55 PM

Carolina Panthers WR Corey Brown (shoulder) left practice early Tuesday, Aug. 23, with a shoulder injury. His removal from practice simply appeared to be a precaution.

Footballguys view: Brown took a small step forward last season with four touchdowns 18 more targets and 10 more catches. That only added up to just over 150 yards though, and happened when Kelvin Benjamin was hurt. Brown will not likely be a factor unless injuries strike again.

Washington Redskins WR Jamison Crowder (knee) did not practice Tuesday, Aug. 23, because of a sore knee, according to head coach Jay Gruden. He is rehabbing.

Footballguys view: Crowder was slated for some work out of the slot but he cannot stay healthy. We don't love the fit or the injuries and wouldn't waste a roster spot on him.
