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.
Huddle Up: The Lions throw the ball enough that even with a couple of talented tight ends and pass-catching backs in the mix, the WR3 still has some fantasy value. Ogletree's stiffest competition will likely come from Broyles, if he's healthy; otherwise he's a good name to keep on the speed dial list for when bye weeks take a bite out of your roster.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Kevin Ogletree and RB Brian Leonard and
shined for the team in the first preseason game. Leonard showed good
instincts in picking up blitzes. Ogletree led the team in receptions
Huddle Up: Both players got an early leg up in their respective competitions
for prime backup positions, but they remain off the fantasy radar
barring injuries to the Bucs' starters.
