Kevin Ogletree WR DET 4 Days

The Lions may use a rotation behind starting wideouts Calvin Johnson and Golden Tate, ESPN's Michael Rothstein reports.

Ogletree and Kris Durham are the leading candidates to work behind the starters, with Jeremy Ross and Ryan Broyles also in the picture. None of the bunch has really stood out this preseason, and there probably won't be many targets left for the third and fourth wide receivers in Detroit's offense.

Ogletree dropped his only target in Saturday's preseason opener against the Browns.

While a lone miscue shouldn't harm Ogletree's bid for the No. 3 wideout role, his drop was rather embarrassing, as the ball went through his hands and smacked his facemask, before popping up in the air for a near-interception. While Kris Durham got the start in place of Calvin Johnson, bot Ogletree and Durham played a good number of snaps early in the game.

Lions WR Kevin Ogletree has "spent time" with the first-team offense during the first two days of training camp.

Ogletree is competing with the likes of Kris Durham, Ryan Broyles, and Jeremy Ross for the third receiver role in Detroit. Though he seems like the front runner now, Ogletree will carry little fantasy value even if he wins the job. The Lions love to utilize their running backs in the passing game, and rookie TE Eric Ebron should see most of his snaps in the slot this season.

Bucs released WR Kevin Ogletree.

Ogletree was third on the team in catches (8), targets (21) and yards (70). Perhaps there's more to this story, but it looks like he was cut after too many drops. The Bucs will promote Chris Owusu from the practice squad to take Ogletree's place.

Kevin Ogletree caught five passes for 30 yards in Tampa's Week 4 loss to the Cardinals.

The five catches more than doubled Ogletree's season total (six) coming into Week 4. With 70 yards through four games, Ogletree remains a fantasy nonentity.

Kevin Ogletree is expected to open the season as the Bucs' No. 3 receiver.

Ogletree will see the majority of his playing time as an outside receiver in three-wide sets, with Vincent Jackson moving to the slot. It's a position that has little upside in OC Mike Sullivan's offense. Through three preseason games, Ogletree has 10 receptions for 114 yards (11.4 YPC) and one touchdown. The Bucs lack quality receiver depth, but he'll be pushed for snaps by Tiquan Underwood.
