Wide Receiver Player Notes
For The Last 15 Days
Allen Hurns, WR, JAC6/29/2015 1:38:00 PM
Description: Jaguars second-year wideout Allen Hurns is ahead of Marqise Lee in the battle for the wideout spot opposite Allen Robinson, according to a Florida Times-Union report.
Insight: Hurns caught 51 balls for 677 yards and six touchdowns last season and has had a better offseason than Lee who has been dealing with knee issues. Robinson is probably going to be the team's only consistent fantasy wideout with newly-acquired TE Julius Thomas as the No. 2 target for Blake Bortles.
Jeremy Kerley, WR, NYJCold6/27/2015 11:15:00 AM
Description: The trade for Brandon Marshall and the drafting of Devin Smith all but ended the hopes of any fantasy value for New York Jets wideout Jeremy Kerley.
Insight: Kerley caught 38 balls for 409 yards and a touchdown last season, but should be almost exclusively a return man in 2015, accordin to Jets reporter Rich Cimini.
Terrelle Pryor, WR, CLE6/23/2015 11:42:00 AM
Description: Former quarterback Terrelle Pryor has been signed by the Cleveland Browns to compete for a wide receiver roster spot.
Insight: He couldn't have picked a better team to try out for. The Browns have one of the weakest groups of wideouts in the league with Dwayne Bowe, Brian Hartline, Andrew Hawkins as the "leaders" at the position.
Marquise Goodwin, WR, BUF6/23/2015 11:37:00 AM
Description: Buffalo wideout Marquise Goodwin will be a participant in the long jump at the weekend's U.S. Outdoor Track and Field Championships..
Insight: Goodwin has yet to prove himself on the football field and might have a better future on the track. He's caught just 18 balls for 325 yards and three touchdowns in two seasons. The Bills have Sammy Watkins, Percy Harvin and Robert Woods to see most of the wideout targets.
Eddie Royal, WR, CHI6/22/2015 4:19:00 PM
Description: New Bears receiver Eddie Royal has been receiving a lot of praise/hype this offseason.
Insight: Royal put together a solid season in 2014 for the Chargers with 62 catches for 778 yards and seven touchdowns. It was his best season since his rookie year in Denver when, you guessed it, Jay Cutler was his quarterback. The Bears may use Royal in the slot and let Cutler throw him short, safe passes.
Calvin Johnson, WR, DET6/21/2015 4:00:00 PM
Description: Lions receiver Calvin Johnson thinks the 2015 Lions offense is way ahead of the 2014 version, according to a Detroit News report.
Insight: "Everybody's a little more comfortable with what we're doing," Johnson said of the second season in the Joe Lonbardi offense. For fantasy owners, it appears that Megatron is healthy and that in itself would make the offense better.
Tavon Austin, WR, STL6/20/2015 1:00:00 PM
Description: Rams receiver Tavon Austin is entering his third season with the team and new Rams OC Frank Cignetti said he's had "a great offseason," according to a St. Louis Post-Dispatch report.
Insight: His first two seasons were a disappointment to fantasy owners after coming out as the No. 8 overall pick of the 2013 draft. The hope is he'll follow a trend of breakout seasons for third-year receivers.
Miles Austin, WR, PHI6/20/2015 12:54:00 PM
Description: Wide receiver Miles Austin just has impressed coach Chip kelly, according to a CSN Philly report.
Insight: Austin is a veteran who knows how to play the position. He's been a mentor to the young wideouts which is good for the Eagles, but unlikely to make Austin a fantasy-worthy option. The former Cowboys and Browns receiver hasn't been on radar screens since 2012.
Jordan Matthews, WR, PHI6/19/2015 9:06:00 PM
Description: Eagles rookie receiver Jordan Matthews is expected to stay in the slot during his second season according to CSN Philly.
Insight: Matthews is the most-talented receiver on the Eagles roster, but Chip Kelly wants to continue to use him in mismatches in the slot, which actually might work out better for fantasy owners. He had 67 catches, 872 yards and eight touchdowns in his rookie season, and as Sam Bradford's No. 1 target this season, he should easily surpass those totals.
Allen Robinson, WR, JAC6/19/2015 8:52:00 PM
Description: Jaguars rookie receiver Allen Robinson has been "unbelieveable" at Jaguars OTAs.
Insight: Robinson has impressed in OTAs and minicamp and is poised to get a ton of targets this season. Even with the developing Blake Bortles throwing him the ball, Robinson could be a sneaky fantasy play in 2015.
Victor Cruz, WR, NYG6/18/2015 10:19:00 AM
Description: Giants wide receiver Victor Cruz told Ebenezer Samuel of the New York Daily News that he would be 100 percent by late July, early August.
Insight: A combination of a healthy Cruz and talented second-year wideout Odell Beckham Jr. could be one of the best pair of receivers in the league. Hopefully, there will be no setbacks in Cruz's return to the field.
Julio Jones, WR, ATL6/18/2015 10:18:00 AM
Description: Falcons receiver Julio Jones has been at practice everyday despite being in contract negotiations with the team.
Insight: Jones knows he needs to be on the field to learn the new Kyle Shanahan offense and that to sit out would be selfish. This has to earn him the respect of his teammates. Demaryius Thomas and Dez Bryant are you paying attention?
