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 | Jeremy Ross has chance to win slot job

Wed, 16 Jul 2014 10:17:45 -0700

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.

Lions | Reggie Bush won't return kicks

Mon, 09 Jun 2014 09:40:22 -0700

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.

Lions | Nate Burleson likely to line up in slot

Fri, 22 Nov 2013 14:57:25 -0800

Detroit Lions WR Nate Burleson (forearm) is likely to see most of the snaps out of the slot position in Week 12 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, meaning WRs Jeremy Ross and Kris Durham will see less playing time. Burleson practiced in full pads both Thursday, Nov. 21, and Friday, Nov. 22, and is probable for this weekend.

Fri, 08 Nov 2013 13:44:51 -0800

Detroit Lions WR Jeremy Ross or TE Joseph Fauria could see snaps out of the slot position in Week 10 against the Chicago Bears with WR Nate Burleson (forearm) being ruled out.

Packers | Jeremy Ross might have roster made

Wed, 14 Aug 2013 09:25:11 -0700

Green Bay Packers WR Jeremy Ross might make the 53-man roster due to his play on special teams, and not necessarily his play in the passing game. He has been a good tackler on special teams, and also appears to be the frontrunner for both kickoffs and punt returns, at least while WR Randall Cobb (biceps) is not 100 percent.

Fantasy Tip: Ross has no fantasy appeal in re-draft leagues, but could be somewhat valuable in those specialty leagues which reward individual return yardage if he lands both kickoff and punt return duties.

Packers | Jeremy Ross could return kicks

Tue, 04 Dec 2012 10:30:49 -0800

The Green Bay Packers may decide to let WR Jeremy Ross be the alternative kick returner in order to let WR Randall Cobb focus more on his offensive duties. Special teams coach Shawn Slocum said Ross is "a natural catcher of the ball" and has "excellent speed…good vision." "Let's don't put the cart before the horse," Slocum said. "Let the week's progression take its natural course. We'll make those decisions. Randall's our returner and at this point I don't anticipate changing a whole lot."
