  • Damaris Johnson unlikely to make Eagles
    Coach Chip Kelly recently stated in a radio interview that the Eagles don't have a single receiver on their roster under 190 pounds.

    Advice: They actually have two -- Damaris Johnson and Jeff Maehl -- but neither is expected to make the Eagles' 53. 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 made an emphasis on increasing his team's size at wide receiver.

  • Mohamed Sanu having a 'monster' camp
    According to, Mohamed Sanu is having a "monster" training camp.

    Advice: Sanu is getting plenty of reps with the first-team offense while Marvin Jones is sidelined with a tweaked hamstring. 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.

  • 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.

    Rod Streater suffered a concussion in Sunday's training camp practice.

    Advice: Streater led Oakland in receiving last season with a 60-888-4 line and figures to man the slot in three-wide sets. Streater has one previous concussion on his NFL record after suffering one last preseason. He's day-to-day.

  • Drops a 'recurring theme' for T.J. Graham
    T.J. Graham dropping passes has been a "recurring theme" during training camp.

    Advice: According to ESPN Bills reporter Mike Rodak, "time may be running out" for Graham. The third-year receiver is competing for No. 5 duties and doesn't contribute on special teams. Graham is a long shot to make the 53-man roster. Another team will likely give him a chance thanks to his blazing 4.34 wheels.

  • 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.

  • Odell Beckham undergoing tests on Monday
    Odell Beckham was absent from Giants practice Monday to undergo tests on his injured hamstring.

    Advice: The move comes one day after coach Tom Coughlin expressed frustration with Beckham's slow recovery. Beckham is likely undergoing an MRI, which would give the Giants a much-better idea of when he might return. Beckham is falling behind as the Giants sort out their post-Hakeem Nicks receiver corps.

    CSN Bay Area reports the 49ers are not "remotely close" to new contracts with walk-year players Michael Crabtree and Mike Iupati.

    Advice: That's according to "multiple sources." GM Trent Baalke insists the sides are "going to work at it," but added "at some point, you got to stop negotiating deals and let these guys concentrate on playing football." There's a chance the Niners end up letting both players walk.

  • Kelvin Benjamin day to day with bone bruise
    Panthers first-round WR Kelvin Benjamin has been diagnosed with a bone bruise in his left knee, and is day to day.

    Advice: According to coach Ron Rivera, there's no structural damage, but Benjamin's knee is "inflamed." 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. He'll be a boom-or-bust option as a rookie. The Panthers' offense will be in dire straits if Benjamin doesn't "boom."

  • Rivera 'optimistic' about Benjamin's injury
    Coach Ron Rivera insists the Panthers are just being cautious with Kelvin Benjamin's knee injury.

    Advice: Benjamin underwent a "precautionary" MRI on his left knee Monday. "We want to be smart with it," Rivera said. "It could just be one of those things where if he had iced it right away and not finished (Sunday's) practice, maybe it would have been better. ... I'm optimistic that is what it's going to be." Although MRIs always signal at least some level of concern, it sounds like Benjamin should be back on the practice field before the end of the week.

  • Cards GM: Rookie WR Brown un-coverable
    Cardinals GM Steve Keim has called third-round WR John Brown un-coverable in camp.

    Advice: "I can tell you so far we haven't been able to cover him," were Keim's exact words. Brown has been creating buzz all offseason, drawing comparisons to past under-sized Bruce Arians wideouts like T.Y. Hilton and Antonio Brown. Brown's 5-foot-10, 179-pound frame comes with 4.34 wheels. He'll have a hard time making a re-draft impact behind Michael Floyd, Larry Fitzgerald and perhaps even Ted Ginn, but is obviously a name to pursue in Dynasty formats.

  • Kevin Norwood has looked 'sensational'
    Fourth-round WR Kevin Norwood has reportedly looked "sensational" early in Seahawks camp.

    Advice: Norwood is buried on the depth chart, currently operating in the No. 5 or 6 spot. But it's unlikely Seattle would get him through waivers and onto the practice squad, so they'll have to end up making room for him on the 53-man roster. If Norwood can show well on special teams, Ricardo Lockette may lose his job.

Maclin will be playing the DeSean Jackson "Z" role, a spot that led to D-Jax posting career outlier numbers in his first year under Chip Kelly.

  • No contract imminent for Torrey Smith
    Contract talks are not heating up between Torrey Smith and the Ravens.

    Advice: Smith's value may be difficult to figure out as he's been more of a play-making deep-threat than true No. 1 receiver, and has yet to go to a Pro Bowl. 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.

    Charles Johnson has reportedly been a "revelation" in the first days of Browns camp.

    Advice: Johnson is on our radar because he's 6'2/215 with 4.38 jets and the Browns are desperate at the wideout spot. ESPN Cleveland says he's "surprisingly up to speed on the Kyle Shanahan offense" and "could be the receiver that comes out of nowhere to lessen the impact of - if not offset" the Josh Gordon suspension.

So the Jags' two rookies are being handed first-team work right out of the gate. We're still not high on either as more than WR4/5s as they find their way in a run-first, ball-control scheme quarterbacked by Chad Henne.

Over the last two seasons, Bryant has 185 catches, 2,615 yards and 25 touchdowns -- and now he has Scott Linehan on his side. Linehan has proven to be an expert at getting alpha receivers open, as evidenced by Randy Moss in Minnesota, Torry Holt in St. Louis and most recently Calvin Johnson. Linehan even coaxed a top-ten fantasy season out of Chris Chambers in Miami.

    Jermaine Kearse has consistently run as a first-team receiver in three-wideout sets at Seahawks camp.

    Advice: Percy Harvin is playing Z and slot receiver, with Kearse and Doug Baldwin primarily on the perimeter. (Baldwin is playing Golden Tate's old position.) At 6-foot-1, 209 with impressive high-pointing ability, 24-year-old Kearse has a chance to take a step forward this season, and is a sneaky bet to lead Seattle in touchdown receptions. He scored TDs in the NFC title game and Super Bowl 48.

"I went on YouTube and watched his Grand Valley (State) highlights. They were impressive," said Pettine. "... It's worth taking a peek at. He's explosive. He's a guy that is deceptively fast. He doesn't look like he's covering a lot of ground but he is. I think his catch radius is bigger than most. He's got long arms and he's got (big) hands. He's a guy that we hope can emerge from this as a guy that can help us."

    The New York Daily News sees rookie Odell Beckham as "more complement than competition" for a starting job in two-wide sets.

    Advice: The Giants will play a lot of three wides, but Beckham won't be on the field in two-receiver packages, and a hamstring injury has bothered him since the spring, keeping the rookie behind. A rookie-year stat line similar to DeAndre Hopkins' in Houston last year (52-802-2) would be a success for "OBJ."

After running mostly go routes down the right sideline under old OC Mike Sherman, Wallace is "running a variety of patterns" under new play caller Bill Lazor. Wallace is currently being drafted as a WR3, but we like his odds for having a bounce-back breakout year.

"I feel like as long as I take care of business on that field, the rest will be taken care of," Bryant said Thursday. Making $1.78 million in the final year of his rookie contract, Bryant is one of the biggest bargains in the league. The Cowboys' salary-cap disaster will surely make any long-term talks complex.

It would be a shock if the 16-game suspension is reduced. The Browns are just hoping to get Gordon back in 2015.

    Advice: "He missed part of spring ball with a hamstring and he tweaked it yesterday. Obviously there is a concern," Reese said. Beckham first injured the hammy in the spring, and then re-tweaked it on his first route on the opening day of training camp Tuesday. Coach Tom Coughlin said after Wednesday's practice that he has no idea when Beckham will be back on the field. Rookie receivers tend to struggle in year one anyway, so any missed practice time for Beckham is a concern. Jerrell Jernigan ran with the starters in three-wide sets on Wednesday.
