  • Terrelle Pryor will be 'limited' on Thursday
    The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports Terrelle Pryor (hamstring) is expected to be "limited" in Thursday's preseason game.

    Advice: Pryor could end up playing only a series or two. That would be his most action of the preseason, of course, but it's not going to offer anything meaningful to his roster odds. Pryor's 53-man chances live and die with what he did in pad-less offseason practices. Rotoworld.com Today, 10:54 am

  • Titans rookie WR Green-Beckham is 'a beast'
    Titans CB Jason McCourty called rookie WR Dorial Green-Beckham "a beast."

    Advice: "There’s certain things you can’t teach," McCourty continued, "and you can’t teach a guy to be that big, and to be physical." DGB is an imposing figure at 6'5/237 pounds, but he is a rough around the edges prospect who has yet to earn a spot with the first-team offense. With only Harry Douglas and Hakeem Nicks to beat out, Green-Beckham should earn a starting role at some point this season. He is a decent late-round flier. Rotoworld.com Today, 8:36 am

    Advice: Crowder was accused of domestic violence through his Instagram account on June 4. He was never formally accused of any crime, and the NFL's investigation has apparently found nothing to suggest Crowder violated the personal conduct policy.

    The Charlotte Observer believes WR Corey Brown could be on the roster bubble.

    Advice: Brown was expected to open the season in the starting lineup following the season-ending injury to Kelvin Benjamin (ACL), but he has struggled mightily with drops both in games and in practice over the last several weeks. Brown has at least five drops in the last two preseason games, including two would-be touchdowns. If he cannot show the drops are behind him in the final preseason game, he could find himself off the final roster. Rotoworld.com Today, 6:06 am

"So all we can do is try to prepare him in practice. When you get to the season, it’s about matchups." Green-Beckham was held out of last week's dress rehearsal with an ankle injury. He hasn't played with the first team during the preseason, but remains a high-upside late-round flyer. Green-Beckham will open the season behind Kendall Wright, Harry Douglas, and Hakeem Nicks.

  • Packers WR Janis 'hasn't won over' Rodgers
    Packers second-year WR Jeff Janis is behind rookie Ty Montgomery because Janis "hasn't fully won over his quarterback yet."

    Advice: Trust is critical between pass catchers and their quarterbacks. Aaron Rodgers apparently doesn't yet trust Janis enough for him to have a significant role in Green Bay's offense. "Jeff will have some great days and some days where mentally he's making too many mistakes," Rodgers said. "The talent and athleticism is there. We just need to see from all those guys battling for those two spots just some more consistency." Janis has a higher ceiling than Montgomery, but needs to start climbing the depth chart to make any 2015 fantasy noise. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 3:37 pm

    Advice: Playing outside at Z receiver, Montgomery is coming off a third preseason game where he posted a 2-71 receiving line working in three-wide sets alongside Randall Cobb and Davante Adams. Montgomery is very clearly ahead of Jeff Janis, who "hasn't fully won over" Aaron Rodgers. Montgomery is a worthy late-round flyer in re-draft leagues, with an up arrow on his Dynasty value.

With Jace Amaro (shoulder) done for the season, Enunwa could have a real role on offense. OC Chan Gailey used four-receiver sets on a league-high 586 snaps from 2010-2012 in Buffalo.

    Advice: Pryor has missed the entire preseason slate after going down with a hamstring injury early in camp, and Pettine said last week the window was closing on him making the team. Pettine appears to have softened that stance, perhaps because Pryor represents the most athletic upside in the Browns' nondescript receiving corps.

    Advice: Coleman ran with the Saints' first-team offense in two-wide sets, playing ahead of Marques Colston, who entered for three-wide packages at slot receiver. Coleman's lowlight was a drop on a pass from Luke McCown. His highlight was a 27-yard second-quarter gain on a deep crosser. Coleman is a legitimate threat to Colston's playing time, but his snap share remains somewhat unclear, and Coleman's lack of preseason production is a slight concern.

  • Whisenhunt: Green-Beckham a work in progress
    Coach Ken Whisenhunt indicated rookie Dorial Green-Beckham remains a work in progress entering the Titans' third preseason game.

    Advice: Green-Beckham has flashed big time on the field, ripping off a 32-yard gain in the Titans' preseason opener and catching four balls for 40 yards in the second exhibition week. Whisenhunt, however, noted that Green-Beckham cost the team a 37-yard gain with a miscue on Sunday night and says Green-Beckham is "still finding his way" and "has some catching up to do." Green-Beckham did run with the ones a bit on Sunday. He's climbing the ladder. Rotoworld.com Monday, 1:24 pm

  • Terrelle Pryor back on the roster bubble?
    ESPN Cleveland believes Terrelle Pryor's (hamstring) roster odds could come down to the next 72 hours.

    Advice: Reporter Tony Grossi believes Pryor "has" to practice this week and play in Saturday's regular season dress rehearsal to have a realistic shot at making the team. Coach Mike Pettine has basically said the same. Pryor was looking like a lock in early August, but at this point, his odds are probably worse than 50-50. Switching positions, he simply couldn't afford to miss as much camp time as he has. Rotoworld.com Aug 24, 11:16 am
