  • Jets rookie WR Devin Smith has fractured ribs
    Second-round WR Devin Smith suffered broken ribs in the first practice of Jets camp and may miss all of the preseason.

    Advice: Smith has been hospitalized with the painful injury. It should be emphasized that Smith broke multiple ribs, not just one. The injury occurred while Smith was "making a leaping catch" in Friday's practice. The 37th pick in this year's draft, Smith was going to compete for third receiver duties with Jeremy Kerley behind Brandon Marshall and Eric Decker. While we didn't have high hopes for Smith's re-draft league prospects, so much lost practice time in OC Chan Gailey's system may prevent Smith from making any meaningful early-season impact.

    Chris Hogan struggled with drops on the first day of training camp.

    Advice: It’s not a good start for a player that’s on the roster bubble. Hogan is battling Marquise Goodwin for one of the final receiver spots. Rotoworld.com Today, 3:34 pm

  • Steve Smith likely to remain full-time player
    Steve Smith Sr. expects to remain a full-time player in the Ravens' offense this season.

    Advice: Back in May, coach John Harbaugh mentioned reducing Smith's snaps in an effort to save on his wear and tear at age 36. Doing so is idealistic and ultimately unrealistic for the Ravens, who are otherwise counting on major roles for rookies Breshad Perriman and Maxx Williams in their pass-catching corps. "I think it's going to be hard for both of us to do that," Smith said Friday. "Because we're both competitors and we both want to win." Smith is a solid fantasy WR3 pick this year.

  • Seahawks place Paul Richardson on PUP
    Seahawks placed WR/KR Paul Richardson (ACL surgery) on active/PUP.

    Advice: Although coach Pete Carroll stated in the middle of the month that Richardson could return "early in training camp," the 2014 second-round pick's knee injury was known to be severe, and was suffered in January. Richardson is unlikely to be a factor for the Seahawks early in his sophomore NFL year. Richardson is a prime candidate to stay on the reserve/PUP list into the season. Rotoworld.com Today, 12:36 pm

  • Saints activate Marques Colston
    Saints activated WR Marques Colston from the active/PUP list.

    Advice: Colston's injury was never disclosed. The Saints intend to take it easy on their declining 32-year-old slot receiver, probably for most of camp. "We have to be smart with where Marques is at," coach Sean Payton acknowledged. "The reps are one thing, but making sure he’s getting into football shape. ... I think we’ll do a good job with some veteran players, he being one of them." Rotoworld.com Today, 12:33 pm

  • Hakeem Nicks getting bulk of 1st-team reps
    Hakeem Nicks opened Titans training camp getting the "bulk" of the first-team wideout snaps across from Kendall Wright.

    Advice: This shouldn't last long with rookie Dorial Green-Beckham waiting in the wings, and Harry Douglas and Justin Hunter also in the mix for snaps. Nicks is still only 27 years old, but he's looked all out of juice in recent seasons. Nicks managed a 38-405-4 receiving line on 68 targets with Andrew Luck's Colts last year.

  • Green-Beckham ballooned to 246 lbs. in spring
    Dorial Green-Beckham revealed he weighed 246 pounds at the end of offseason practices.

    Advice: It's nine pounds heavier than his Combine listing, where Green-Beckham weighed in at 6'5/237. DGB missed the entire offseason due to a hamstring injury, which presumably contributed to his weight gain. He says he's down to 240 pounds now, and hopes to get to 230 by the end of camp.

  • Brandon Coleman getting lots of early targets
    Saints WR Brandon Coleman has seen "a lot of throws" early in training camp, while mixing in with both the starters and backups.

    Advice: Beat writer Mike Triplett hints Coleman has pulled ahead of Seantavius Jones in their battle for snaps. Coleman still needs to gain ground on Nick Toon and/or Marques Colston to become a 2015 fantasy factor, however. Coming out of Rutgers in 2014, Coleman ran a 4.56 forty at 6-foot-6 and 225 pounds.

  • Nelson Agholor 'looks like the real deal'
    Philly Voice's Jimmy Kempski expects first-round WR Nelson Agholor to "produce immediately" and added that Agholor "looks like the real deal."

    Advice: Agholor projects as an immediate Week 1 starter in the old Jeremy Maclin role opposite Jordan Matthews. Outside of Amari Cooper, Agholor has the easiest path to targets among this year's rookie receivers. Anything less than 800-900 yards and a handful of touchdowns would come as a disappointment, and we'd consider that his floor. Agholor has a chance to be 2015's top rookie producer.

    Advice: Dobson's first two seasons were ruined by injuries. By all accounts, he's healthy for 2015. He'll have to keep it that way as he competes for a role behind Julian Edelman and Brandon LaFell. Dobson will be a player to keep an eye on in camp and preseason after the Patriots didn't add any receiver help. Rotoworld.com Today, 7:22 am

  • Terrelle Pryor shined on day one of camp
    ESPN Cleveland's Tony Grossi called Terrelle Pryor "the most intriguing player on hand," at Browns camp, and "a possible playmaker who could be a game-changer."

    Advice: On the opening day of Browns camp, Pryor stole the show. He didn't drop a single pass and "looked like a natural" at receiver after having never played the position at any level. "I’ve never seen anybody make that transformation in person," said CB Joe Haden. "It looks like it would work." The thing Pryor has going for him is no other Browns receiver has his size-athleticism combo. Rotoworld.com Today, 6:37 am

  • Jarvis Landry likely to stay active on return
    Jarvis Landry is considered the "front-runner" to keep the Dolphins' punt return job in 2015.

    Advice: Landry will assume every-down duties at receiver, but he remains the Fins' best option on kick and punt returns, as well. Landry ranked fourth in the NFL in kickoff return average as a rookie. Landry's low aDOT (Average Depth of Target) in some ways caps his fantasy ceiling, but he set a 105-catch pace over the final nine weeks of 2014 and has added value in return-yardage leagues.

    Advice: Green-Beckham is being babied along after missing all of OTAs with a hamstring injury. It's far from ideal for a player who enters the league as an exceptionally-raw prospect.

Quick and Kenny Britt should line up as St. Louis' Opening Day starters at wideout, with Stedman Bailey and Tavon Austin mixing in for sub-packages.

    Advice: The WR-needy Ravens didn't use the No. 26 overall pick on Perriman to have him sit. Although Kamar Aiken soaked up plenty of first-team reps during the spring, Perriman is the prototypical size/speed specimen that will have to fall flat on his face to lose the job.

    Advice: Perhaps Pettine is beginning to confront the reality that Josh McCown and Johnny Manziel are his top-two quarterbacks.
