Detroit Lions WR Kevin Ogletree has been spent time on the top unit each of the first two days of training camp, working as the No. 3 receiver. He is battling WRs Ryan Broyles, Kris Durham, Corey Fuller and Jeremy Ross, among others, for the No. 3 job behind starting WRs Calvin Johnson and Golden Tate. Offensive coordinator Joe Lombardi singled out Ogletree during the spring as a player that impressed him.
Fantasy Tip: If Ogletree was able to work into a No. 3 role, he would still be more of a WR4 or flex play in fantasy leagues of 12 or more teams. However, all it would take is one injury to Johnson or Tate for him to see more targets and relevance.

Detroit Lions WR Jeremy Ross has a good chance to win the slot receiver job during training camp. Ross likely will make the team even if he does not win the job, because he is a returner.

Detroit Lions RB Reggie Bush has no plans to be considered for kick or punt returns in 2014. "As of right now, no," Bush said. "And hopefully, no. I'd like to think I graduated from returning kicks and punts," Bush said. WR Jeremy Ross will continue to be the man for kick and punt returns.
Fantasy Tip: It's probably best that Bush stick to running back duties to preserve his body for the long haul in a new offense that he could see a lot of action in.
