Wide Receiver Player Notes
For The Last 15 Days
Jarrett Boykin, WR, CAR3/27/2015 3:45:00 PM
Description: Wide receiver Jarrett Boykin signed a one-year deal with Carolina.
Insight: Boykin was beaten out by Davante Adams for the No. 3 receiver spot in Green Bay. He could win the job opposite Kevin Benjamin, currently owned by Jerricho Cotchery, but that still might not make him fantasy worthy.
Darrius Heyward-Bey, WR, PIT3/27/2015 10:24:00 AM
Description: Steelers receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey re-signed with the team.
Insight: Barring numerous injures at the position, DHB has no fantasy value. The seventh-overall pick of the 2009 draft (by Oakland) and never developed as hoped. Ignore him on draft day.
Victor Cruz, WR, NYG3/25/2015 3:21:00 PM
Description: Coach Tom Coughlin suggested that wide receiver Victor Cruz could miss the beginning of the 2015 season according to the New York Post.
Insight: It is the Giants goal to have him ready, but if he isn't, Odell Beckham proved he can be the team's No. 1 recever. Cruz is trying to return from a patellar tendon tear which is supposedly even tougher to come back from than ACL tears.
Jordy Nelson, WR, GBP3/25/2015 3:18:00 PM
Description: Packers receiver Jordy Nelson is recovering from offseason hip surgery according to Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.
Insight: Nelson should be fine in six-to-eight weeks as the operation was simply to "clean it up". Based on his numbers, it didn't appear Nelson needed to get his hip "cleaned up" as he set a team record with 1,519 receiving yards and made his first Pro Bowl. Nelson will be one of the first receivers taken this fall.
Dwayne Bowe, WR, CLE3/19/2015 2:32:00 PM
Description: Wide receiver Dwayne Bowe, released by the Chiefs after they signed Jeremy Maclin, has agreed to a two-year deal with the Cleveland Browns, according to Ian Rapoport.
Insight: Bowe's fantasy value may just go from low to lower with this move. In Kansas City at least he had a solid, though unspectacular, quarterback in Alex Smith while he'll now be catching passes from either Josh McCown or Johnny Manziel. In either case it doesn't bode well for Bowe who caught zero touchdown passes last season.
Percy Harvin, WR, BUF3/18/2015 2:04:00 PM
Description: Wide receiver Percy Harvin has officially signed with the Bills.
Insight: It is a one-year, $6 million deal. This is one of the worst landing spots for Harvin from a fantasy perspective.
Stevie Johnson, WR, SDC3/17/2015 2:32:00 PM
Description: Wide receiver Stevie Johnson, who spent last season in San Francisco, will stay in California, playing for San Diego in 2015 after signing a three-year deal, according to Dianna Marie Russini of NBC4 in D.C.
Insight: Johnson will be playing in a group including Keenan Allen, Malcom Floyd and Jacoby Jones. He should be the No. 2 or No. 3 guy and could have WR3 fantasy value.
Cecil Shorts III, WR, HOU3/16/2015 3:35:00 PM
Description: Wide receiver Cecil Shorts has agreed to a deal with Houston, according to John McClain of the Houston Chronicle.
Insight: Shorts had a nice season back in 2012 (55-979-7), but his fantasy value has been slowed by poor quarterback play and injuries. He'll have similar quarterback issues in Houston. He'll also be a No. 2, at best, with DeAndre Hopkins seeing the most targets.
