Lions | Kevin Ogletree sees more first-team reps

Wed, 30 Jul 2014 19:21:43 -0700

Detroit Lions WR Kevin Ogletree was getting extra work with the first-team offense in practice Wednesday, July 30, working primarily out of the slot.

Fantasy Tip: Ogletree has reportedly been impressive during the early portion of training camp, and he appears to have a leg up for the No. 3 receiver job at this point. But it's still early in training camp, so don't get crazy and scoot him way up your draft sheet just yet. Still, if he can secure the No. 3 job, he might emerge as a nice WR4 or 'flex' fantasy option in leagues of 12 or more teams.

Lions | Joique Bell appears agile

Wed, 30 Jul 2014 19:19:21 -0700

Detroit Lions RB Joique Bell (knee) missed organized team activities (OTAs) and minicamp while recovering from a knee injury, but he looked good cutting and accelerating with ease during team portions of practice Wednesday, July 30.

Fantasy Tip: A healthy Bell appears to be slotted behind starter Reggie Bush for the primary job, so he should get his fair share of touches. He is a decent low-end RB2 or flex option, especially in leagues which reward points per reception (PPR). Bell needs to stay healthy to hold off a charge from sleeper Theo Riddick and holdover Mikel Leshoure, among others.

Wed, 30 Jul 2014 19:18:52 -0700

Sims said after practice Wednesday, July 30, that he is surprised with how well his body is responding and feels he can return to the level of play from his 2012 campaign.

Lions | Kevin Ogletree working as No. 3 WR

Tue, 29 Jul 2014 21:44:23 -0700

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.

Lions | TEs working on blocking

Tue, 29 Jul 2014 21:43:37 -0700

Detroit Lions TE Brandon Pettigrew and the other tight ends have split time between working on the offensive line and working with the pass-catching receivers and running backs catching passes. Pettigrew worked with the line while TEs Eric Ebron and Joseph Fauria worked on catching passes Tuesday, July 29. "We rotate and go down there during periods," Pettigrew said. "We have five guys here, why not split up and have some guys down there and some guys down here." Pettigrew said this helps his blocking fundamentals, and aids Ebron and Fauria as well.

Lions | Calvin Johnson adjusting approach in practice

Tue, 29 Jul 2014 17:19:19 -0700

Detroit Lions WR Calvin Johnson is taking part in fewer reps in training camp this year than in years past and said he is trying to be smarter about his approach to practice with the goal of staying healthy the entire season. "I'm older now," Johnson said. "I'm not diving for the balls anymore (in practice). Coach Caldwell has a big emphasis about us staying off the ground. I'm not playing every play in practice but they're working me in. I'm out here trying to get my extra running in after (practice) so I can keep my wind up."

Fantasy Tip: Anything that Johnson can do to avoid the nagging injuries that forced him to miss time down the stretch last season is a good thing for fantasy owners. He should be the first WR off the board in any format.

Tue, 29 Jul 2014 16:49:41 -0700
