Detroit Lions WRs Jeremy Ross, Corey Fuller, Ryan Broyles and Lance Moore will all be candidates for the slot receiver job during training camp. Ross worked with the first-team offense during offseason workouts, but his roster spot is uncertain at this point.
Fantasy Tip: The Lions have several other options in the passing game, so it is not known if the winner of the competition will have a lot of fantasy value. The winner of the competition could be a late-round option in fantasy leagues but would not be a weekly starting option.

Fri, 06 Mar 2015 19:25:16 -0800

Fri, 17 Oct 2014 13:12:22 -0700
Detroit Lions TE Joseph Fauria (ankle) and LB Travis Lewis (quadriceps) both did not participate in practice Friday, Oct. 17, and have been ruled out for the team's Week 7 game. RB Theo Riddick (hamstring) did not practice and is doubtful. DE Ziggy Ansah (toe) was limited in practice and is probable. WR Jeremy Ross (ankle) fully practiced and is probable.
Fri, 17 Oct 2014 09:12:34 -0700
Detroit Lions WR Calvin Johnson (ankle) didn't practice for the sixth straight day Friday, Oct. 17. Head coach Jim Caldwell isn't ruling him out for Week 7 against the New Orleans Saints, but he also didn't make it sound like Johnson would play, either. Johnson said earlier this week that he sees no reason to rush back to the field until he's completely healthy. The team will lean heavily on WRs Golden Tate, Corey Fuller and Jeremy Ross, along with RBs Joique Bell and Reggie Bush if Johnson doesn't play again.
Fantasy Tip: It's highly unlikely that we see Megatron play against the Saints. Avoid him everywhere. Tate's price ($6,300; 12.6% of cap) has gone up with Johnson hobbled, but he could still return a profit against a weak New Orleans defense.

Wed, 15 Oct 2014 13:49:03 -0700

Fri, 10 Oct 2014 09:42:32 -0700
Detroit Lions WR Calvin Johnson (ankle) skipped his third straight practice of the week Friday, Oct. 10, for the first time this year. Head coach Jim Caldwell said a decision on Johnson's status for Week 6 against the Minnesota Vikings has not been determined, however. "And also, you never know. There's a possibility. A couple weeks ago, I really didn't think he'd be available but the fact of the matter is he came out after doctors looked at him and said, hey, you know what, he can go," Caldwell said. WRs Corey Fuller, Jeremy Ross and Ryan Broyles and TE Eric Ebron would be tasked with replacing Johnson as a committee if he doesn't play.
Fantasy Tip: Despite Caldwell being non-committal on Johnson, it seems unlikely that he'll play. Keep him out of your FantasyScore lineups this weekend. Golden Tate and Ebron stand to benefit the most with added targets.
Sat, 13 Sep 2014 07:33:48 -0700
Detroit Lions WR Jeremy Ross wants to be known for more than just returning kicks. "There's been a lot of return people, guys who don't really do well at receiver or are just known for returns," Ross said. "I don't want to just be that guy. I don't want to be a one-dimensional guy, I want to be a multidimensional guy. I want to have success at return, but then also wideout, too."
Sat, 16 Aug 2014 23:37:47 -0700
The Detroit Lions have a huge competition at the wide receiver spot for a starting role behind WRs Calvin Johnson and Golden Tate. WRs Jeremy Ross, Kris Durham, Ryan Broyles and Corey Fuller are all in contention at this point.
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.
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.
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.
Mon, 09 Jun 2014 05:56:05 -0700
Detroit Lions WR Jeremy Ross is likely the unquestioned punt returner for the team. WR Golden Tate has offered to return punts, but the team wants him to focus on offense.
Mon, 07 Apr 2014 14:24:19 -0700

Sat, 15 Mar 2014 08:58:33 -0700
Detroit Lions WR Golden Tate said he is not sure if the team will use him as a punt returner, but he would like to compete for that job. Tate likely would have to compete with WR Jeremy Ross if he is given the chance for the job.
Sat, 08 Mar 2014 08:36:04 -0800

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.
Sat, 09 Nov 2013 17:36:51 -0800
Detroit Lions WR Jeremy Ross and TE Joseph Fauria could see time as slot receivers during the team's Week 10 game.
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.
Fantasy Tip: Fauria is the wiser choice if you're desperately seeking a flex option in a much deeper league.
Sun, 27 Oct 2013 19:33:08 -0700
Detroit Lions WR Jeremy Ross started at kick return in Week 8 against the Dallas Cowboys, and he finished as the punt return man, too, after WR Ryan Broyles (Achilles') left with a serious injury.

Sun, 22 Sep 2013 13:11:06 -0700

Green Bay Packers WR Jeremy Ross got the first crack at punt returns in practice Monday, Aug. 26, followed by WR Randall Cobb, CB Tramon Williams and CB Micah Hyde.
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.
Tue, 23 Jul 2013 09:32:00 -0700
Green Bay Packers WRs Jarrett Boykin, Jeremy Ross, Myles White and Charles X. Johnson will head into training camp battling for the fourth and fifth receiver jobs behind mainstays Randall Cobb, James Jones and Jordy Nelson.
Mon, 31 Dec 2012 09:40:14 -0800
Green Bay Packers WR Randall Cobb (ankle, knee) is expected to play in the team's Wild Card game Saturday, Jan. 5.

Thu, 27 Dec 2012 18:51:24 -0800
Green Bay Packers WR Jeremy Ross likely will be the kick and punt returner for Week 17 if WR Randall Cobb (ankle, knee) is not able to play in the game.
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."
