Player Notes

  • Albert Wilson suffers hamstring strain Wed.
    Chiefs WR Albert Wilson suffered a strained hamstring in Wednesday's OTA.

    Advice: He'll likely miss the remainder of OTAs and seems unlikely to participate in minicamp later this month. Wilson came on late in the season and finished with a 16-260-0 receiving line. He's expected to compete with rookie Chris Conley for the starting job opposite new No. 1 receiver Jeremy Maclin.

  • Tre McBride working as backup to K. Wright
    Titans seventh-round pick Tre McBride explained that he is working as Kendall Wright's backup at OTAs.

    Advice: Like Wright, McBride is practicing at "F" (slot) and "Z" (flanker) in Ken Whisenhunt's offense. McBride is well built at 6-foot, 210, but the Titans' decision to place him at Wright's position suggests the coaching staff views McBride as a possession-type receiver. Once Dorial Green-Beckham's hamstring gets healthy, he will begin pushing Justin Hunter at the "X" (split end) spot.

  • Raiders sign KR/WR Trindon Holliday
    Raiders signed KR Trindon Holliday.

    Advice: Holliday is a "wide receiver" for position's sake, but doesn't play a lick of offense at 5'5/166. He'll push seventh-rounder Andre Debose for return duties.

  • Malcom Floyd may retire after 2015 season
    Malcom Floyd said 2015 will likely be his final season in the NFL.

    Advice: "I'm just trying to throw all of my chips in this year, especially because it's the last year of my contract and just go all out," Floyd said. "I've got four kids and it's taking time away from them. So I'm thinking about shutting it down at the end of this season." The soon-to-be 34-year-old suffered a scary neck injury in 2013 but returned healthy last year to post a 52-856-6 line.

  • Aldrick Robinson has sprained MCL
    Updating a previous item, Ravens WR Aldrick Robinson suffered a Grade 2 MCL sprain in Tuesday's OTA practice.

    Advice: He'll be out until training camp. Signed to a reserve/future pact in January after spending the final couple weeks of the season on the Ravens' practice squad, Robinson faces long odds of cracking the 53-man roster. It's possible he'll be let go with an injury settlement. The Ravens have plenty of No. 4/5 WR types.

  • Jeff Janis getting 1st-team reps
    With Jordy Nelson recovering from hip surgery, second-year WR Jeff Janis is getting first-team reps at Packers OTAs.

    Advice: He's running in three-wide sets alongside Randall Cobb and Davante Adams. Coach Mike McCarthy said Janis still needs to polish his fundamentals, but was "ready to play" by the end of his rookie season. 24 years old with big-time athleticism, Janis is someone to monitor closely in case of a Jordy setback.

  • Dwayne Bowe 'tweaks' knee on Tuesday
    Dwayne Bowe "tweaked" his knee in Tuesday's OTA.

    Advice: Bowe went up for a pass and landed awkwardly. He was escorted off the field for further tests, but coach Mike Pettine is confident it "isn't anything serious." Bowe will likely sit out the rest of the week, though he should be fine for minicamp. The Browns' No. 1 receiver, Bowe is a value grab at his current 14.02 ADP.

  • Rams get Bud Sasser under contract
    Rams signed sixth-round WR Bud Sasser to a four-year contract.

    Advice: Sasser has an NFL frame at 6-foot-3, 219 pounds, but is more of a slot type than outside threat. He'll fight to bring up the rear of the Rams' weak receiver corps, but should see the majority of his rookie snaps on special teams.

  • Mike Evans back at Bucs OTAs
    Mike Evans (hamstring) has resumed practicing.

    Advice: Evans' "tweak" was never a concern. He's a WR1 for 2015.

  • Green-Beckham (hamstring) still sidelined
    Dorial Green-Beckham (hamstring) remains sidelined from Titans OTAs.

    Advice: The No. 40 overall pick has been on the shelf since rookie minicamp. He's supposedly nearing a return, but the Titans have little reason to push DGB and risk a setback. Green-Beckham has unique physical skills, but hasn't played a live game in well over a year. With the Titans breaking in a rookie quarterback, DGB will be hard pressed to make a 2015 impact.

  • Marvin Jones doing 11-on-11 work
    Marvin Jones (hamstring) participated in 11-on-11 work Tuesday.

    Advice: It was just a minor tweak. The real story is that Jones is fully over the foot/ankle issue that ruined his 2014 campaign. He's expected to immediately slide back in opposite A.J. Green, pushing Mohamed Sanu into his natural slot role.

  • Colts ran a lot of three-wide last season
    The Colts used three wide receivers on 50.4 percent of their offensive plays last year.

    Advice: Three receivers, one tight end and one running back was Indy's most common formation. That may have been skewed a bit by Dwayne Allen missing three games, but it's still notable. The Colts clearly plan on using lots of three- and four-receiver sets this year after using a first-round pick on Phillip Dorsett even though they already had talented Donte Moncrief in the role.

  • Wes Welker says he is healthy, wants to play
    Free agent Wes Welker said he's healthy and wants to keep playing.

    Advice: Welker is 34 years old, a major health risk thanks to his concussion history and was ineffective when he played for the Broncos last season. Interest has been and will be very scant, but he sounds desperate. Welker even said he'd be willing to play for the Patriots, the team that essentially chose Danny Amendola over him in 2013 free agency. That's an unlikely landing spot with Amendola and Julian Edelman manning the inside receiver positions.

  • Jaron Brown looking fine at OTAs
    Cardinals WR Jaron Brown (shoulder) is participating without issue at OTAs.

    Advice: Brown avoided surgery on the fractured shoulder blade he sustained in the Wild Card loss to the Panthers. He'll battle for the No. 4 wideout job at training camp.

  • Odell Beckham downplays hammy issue
    Odell Beckham downplayed his hamstring issue.

    Advice: Beckham's left hamstring is sore, but it's nothing compared to the right hamstring issue that temporarily crippled him a year ago. He said it's just "typical" soreness and added that if he had to practice right now he could.

  • Allen Robinson (foot) running routes at OTAs
    Allen Robinson (foot) participated in individual drills at OTAs on Monday.

    Advice: Robinson ran routes in his first team action since breaking his foot in Week 10. "I haven't had any setbacks," Robinson said of his recovery. "It's been going well." The Jaguars will certainly take it slow with Robinson, who was one of the bigger winners of the offseason after the Jaguars failed to add an outside receiver. He'll man the X spot as a sophomore and be a red-zone weapon.

  • Fuller expected to win No. 3 receiver job
    Corey Fuller is expected to win the Lions' No. 3 receiver job.

    Advice: While it sounds like a nice job to win, the Lions' third receiver won't be a reliable fantasy option. Detroit is expected to use the fullback and plenty of two-tight end sets with Brandon Pettigrew and Eric Ebron, leaving Fuller mostly useless outside of extremely deep leagues. He'd do well to see 30 targets.

  • Seantavius Jones ahead of Brandon Coleman
    Saints second-year WR Seantavius Jones appears to be ahead of Brandon Coleman on the depth chart at OTAs.

    Advice: Prepare yourself for plenty of Jones and Coleman blurbs on Rotoworld over the next few months. They are competing for playing time with Nick Toon behind Brandin Cooks and Marques Colston. 6-foot-3 and 208 pounds, Jones ran 4.53 with impressive vertical (38 1/2") and broad (10'5") jumps before going undrafted in 2014. He's worth monitoring in a fairly wide-open Saints receiver corps.

  • Toon in lead for low-ceiling No. 3 WR gig
    ESPN Saints reporter Mike Triplett says "in a best-case scenario" Nick Toon could approach Kenny Stills' 2013 numbers.

    Advice: Stills posted 32 catches for 641 yards and five touchdowns while playing in all 16 games that year. It's a reminder that although Toon is favored to win the No. 3 wideout job, it's a low-volume role in the Saints' scheme. That was the case even before they shifted to the ball-control mentality Sean Payton is installing this offseason.

  • Whisenhunt puts Justin Hunter on alert
    When asked about Justin Hunter, coach Ken Whisenhunt said, "At some point, you either get it or you won't be in this league anymore. That's the natural order of the NFL."

    Advice: The Titans continue to try to wake Hunter up from his career-long doldrums. Last year, they outfitted him in a practice jersey that said JAG (just a guy) on the back -- even though he's 6-foot-4 with 4.4 speed and serious leaping ability. That didn't work and we doubt Whiz's comments will light a fire under Hunter either. After performing as one of the league's worst wideouts last year, Hunter will enter camp behind rookie Dorial Green-Beckham, Kendall Wright and Harry Douglas.
