  • Ogletree seeing time with first-team offense
    Lions WR Kevin Ogletree has "spent time" with the first-team offense during the first two days of training camp.

    Advice: Ogletree is competing with the likes of Kris Durham, Ryan Broyles, and Jeremy Ross for the third receiver role in Detroit. Though he seems like the front runner now, Ogletree will carry little fantasy value even if he wins the job. The Lions love to utilize their running backs in the passing game, and rookie TE Eric Ebron should see most of his snaps in the slot this season. Rotoworld.com

  • Toliver headed for second opinion on foot
    Bears WR Terrance Toliver is seeking a second opinion on his injured foot.

    Advice: Toliver has been sidelined a week with what the Bears fear could be a small fracture in his foot, which would likely end his season. A prototypical Bears' receiver at 6-5/204, Toliver is a dark horse to make the 53-man roster if his health cooperates. Rotoworld.com

  • Lloyd 'most consistently productive' in camp
    The Sacramento Bee's Matt Barrows said WR Brandon Lloyd has been the 49ers' "most consistently productive receiver" this offseason.

    Advice: Colin Kaepernick agrees, saying Lloyd has almost always been "open by a step or two." Lloyd does not appear to have much rust after sitting out an entire season, but already 33 and with little to no value on special teams, Lloyd's roster spot is still anything but secure. Continued stellar practice play like this will go a long way to solidifying his spot on the 49ers' roster. Rotoworld.com

  • Report: Gordon blaming second-hand smoke
    ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Josh Gordon will argue in his appeal hearing that his positive marijuana test was the result of second-hand smoke.

    Advice: The news comes to light after it was revealed that Gordon's positive test was barely above the NFL's strict threshold. Gordon would have tested negative for marijuana in Major League Baseball, the Olympics and even the federal government. It shines a light on just how odious the NFL's marijuana policy is. Gordon's appeal will be heard on Friday. Rotoworld.com

  • Stephen Hill looking 'healthy and confident'
    Jets WRs coach Sanjay Lal calls Stephen Hill "healthy and confident" through the first week of camp.

    Advice: "I think he's believing, and believing in himself - and it's starting to show," Lal said. "It's been the injuries that have hindered (him). ... He's taken the coaching the whole time. Now, he's able to do it physically, so it's just kind of coming together right now." It's notable, because Lal's comments come one month after he said he was "unsure" if Hill would ever break through because of his health. Hill remains a long-shot to make a fantasy impact this season, but the upside is still there. He's someone to monitor. Rotoworld.com

  • Kaep: Crabtree looks 'step or two quicker'
    Colin Kaepernick believes Michael Crabtree is a "step or two quicker now" than he was last season as he recovered from his torn Achilles' tendon.

    Advice: "He has a burst out of his routes," Kaepernick said. "He has burst when he catches the ball. (He) looks really good out there." We don't normally place much stock in "so-and-so looks much quicker this summer" reports, but it's actually believable in Crabtree's case, as he's now more than a year removed from the injury that cost him 11 games in 2013. Crabtree is primed for a big bounce-back campaign as he plays in a contract year. Rotoworld.com

  • PFT: Gordon barely tested positive for drugs
    A source informed Profootballtalk that suspended WR Josh Gordon's failed drug test barely generated a positive, and it would have been a negative had luck been on Gordon's side.

    Advice: Gordon was summoned for a urine sample. Those samples are split into two bottles, one marked "A" and the other "B." It's completely random which one is marked "A" and which is labeled "B." "A" is tested first, and if it generates a positive test, then "B" is tested. The limit is 15 nanograms-per-milliliter. Gordon's "A" bottle showed a concentration of 16 ng/ml, while his "B" registered a 13.6 ng/ml. The result was a failed test. If urine sample handlers would have by chance marked the "A" bottle "B" and the "B" bottle "A," then Gordon would be free to play. Gordon is appealing the ban, and his hearing will be held on Friday. There seems to be a decent chance he wins. Rotoworld.com

  • Robert Woods listed as starter over Williams
    Robert Woods was listed as the first-team receiver opposite Sammy Watkins on the Bills' first training camp depth chart.

    Advice: Mike Williams is directly behind Woods, while Marquise Goodwin is backing up Watkins. Woods hasn't generated much fantasy hype, but qualifies as a sleeper to lead Buffalo in receptions this season. Watkins is talented, but a rookie, and Woods will play the "movement" wideout role in Doug Marrone's offense, running high-percentage routes at Z and slot receiver. He's a sleeper for 70 catches.

    Aaron Dobson had a screw permanently inserted in his foot during his March 10 surgery.

    Advice: The surgery was actually more significant than initially thought. It explains why Dobson has still yet to begin practicing despite originally receiving a 2-3 month recovery timetable. Dobson didn't even begin running until July. The Patriots are going to be careful with their second-year receiver. The injury red flags are there, and he remains on the active/PUP list. It's now a long-term concern. Rotoworld.com

Hailed as a sleeper in some fantasy circles before last year, 175-pound Johnson managed two catches for 14 yards in 13 games. Kelly has emphasized increasing his team's size at wide receiver.

Sanu has been lining up all over the field, playing receiver, quarterback, and running back. There's speculation he could have a role similar to Raiders FB Marcel Reece, who was coached by new Bengals OC Hue Jackson. Sanu will be more valuable in real life than fantasy. Rotoworld.com

  • Odell Beckham to miss at least another week
    Odell Beckham (hamstring) will miss at least another week after his MRI came back negative for a tear on Monday.

    Advice: While it's good he doesn't have a tear, Beckham's strain has lingered since the spring and become a fairly major concern early in training camp. The Giants hope he'll be back by their second preseason game. OBJ is competing for snaps with Jerrel Jernigan behind Victor Cruz and Rueben Randle. If he can't kick the injury, it's conceivable Beckham would open the season as the Giants' No. 4 receiver. We don't see much reason to take a flier on OBJ in re-draft leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • Josh Gordon hires Richard Sherman's attorney
    Suspended WR Josh Gordon has hired the same attorney, Maurice Suh, that helped Richard Sherman win his suspension appeal in December 2012.

    Advice: Sherman was facing a four-game ban two seasons ago, but won his appeal and was available for Seattle in the playoffs. Gordon has been participating in training camp, and was even running with the starters Monday after previously working with mostly backups. Hopefully for Gordon's sake, the Browns know something we don't. If Gordon simply wins and gets his 16-game ban chopped in half, it'd be a colossal victory. We should have a resolution within a week.

The Panthers can breathe a sigh of relief, but Benjamin is still going to miss some all-important practice time as he attempts to get up to speed as the Panthers' de facto No. 1 receiver.

But he's clearly ascending at 25 years old, hasn't missed a game in three seasons and is set to be new OC Gary Kubiak's Andre Johnson this season. We're expecting Smith to set career-highs in both catches and yards, so agent Drew Rosenhaus could make a savvy gamble by putting off negotiations as long as possible. Rotoworld.com
