WR - FA
Week 12 Outlook
2011 second-round WR Greg Little, who hasn't played a down in the NFL since 2014, has made so many positive plays this summer that he has a serious chance at winning a job in Arizona's rebuilt receiving corps. Outside of Larry Fitzgerald and Christian Kirk, the roster spots for Arizona's receiving corps are wide open. Little is competing with J.J. Nelson, Brice Butler, and Chad Williams for the club's reserve spots.
Little, 29, has drawn the praise of first-year head coach Steve Wilks. “We’ve all seen his skill-set over the years,” Wilks said. “For whatever reason, he’s bounced around, he can’t find a home. He’s very talented. To be honest, he probably realizes this is his only and last opportunity.” Little hasn't done anything of note since catching 41 balls for Cleveland in 2013. It's a feel-good story, but even if Little makes Arizona's final roster, he's unlikely to have much fantasy value.
Veteran wideout Greg Little worked out for the Cardinals again during mandatory minicamp. The former second-round pick previously worked out for Arizona during rookie minicamps but tweaked a hamstring. Kent Somers of AZCentral Sports tweeted that he expects the club to sign Little after minicamp.
Little hasn't played in the NFL in over three years so this comes as a bit of a surprise. Arizona's receiving corps is quite thin, so it stands to reason that Little could make a play at a roster spot, but the odds are against him making the club.
Greg Little was targeted seven times, second on the Bills to Walt Powell's 10, in their preseason game Friday night in Washington. Little caught three of those targets for 27 yards. He had what would have been a game-winning touchdown nullified by an offensive pass interference call with 16 seconds left in the game.
The key fact is that Little got his first target on the Bills' third series, after Sammy Watkins called it a night. Greg Salas opened the game in three-receiver sets, and that's where you want to be on the depth chart. Marquise Goodwin, who's in concussion protocol, had locked down the No. 3 job behind Watkins and Robert Woods, but the pecking order behind him isn't set in stone.
With Sammy Watkins sitting out Buffalo's preseason game Saturday against the New York Giants, Greg Little played with the Bills' first-stringers in three-receiver sets, along with starters Robert Woods and Marquise Goodwin. Little was targeted a team-high six times, caught three passes for 35 yards and a touchdown, and almost scored again on a controversial no-catch call.
Goodwin is locked in as the Bills' No. 3 wide receiver behind Watkins and Woods, but the competition is wide open behind them, and Little made a good case in this game.
The former Cleveland Browns pass catcher, Greg Little, and veteran defensive end, Robert Geathers, were both released on Friday by the Cincinnati Bengals. Not a huge surprise considering neither of the players made a huge impact on the team last season.
There was really not much fantasy value between these two players in Cincinnati. The only thing that can be noticed after these players being released is that it gives the younger players on the Bengals more opportunities. Pass catcher like James Wright and Dane Sanzenbacher could see an addition to their workload, and Will Clarke could see more reps at defensive end. That being said, look for the Bengals to make some more intriguing roster moves this offseason.
