WR - FA
The New York Giants and wide receiver Kevin Ogletree have parted ways after one season.
Kevin Ogletree played sparingly with the Giants last season recording only 5 catches and 50 yards. Ogletree was originally signed after Victor Cruz went down in week four.
Giants have re-signed WR Kevin Ogletree to a one-year deal, per source.
According to a source, Kevin Ogletree will return to the Giants next season. Ogletree, who played sparingly last season, will be in competition for the fourth wide receiver position once camp opens.
Kevin Ogletree hauls in three receptions for 25 yards.
Kevin Ogletree finished Sunday's win against Washington with three catches for 25 yards. Ogletree took advantage of his rare opportunity catching all three passes thrown his way. With Rueben Randle continuing to be a disappointment in the last few weeks, Ogletree could factor more into the Giants offense the last two weeks of the season.
Offensive coordinator Joe Lombardi singled out Ogletree for his play during OTAs, and he's continued to impress throughout the first few days of camp. If he can keep up his spectacular play, the third receiver spot looks to be all his.
If Ogletree ends up holding onto the number three receiver role, he'll still be Matthew Stafford's fifth option in the passing game behind Calvin Johnson, Golden Tate, Eric Ebron and Reggie Bush. This leaves Ogletree with little fantasy upside outside of the deepest leagues.
Kevin Ogletree has been playing with the first team offense to start Lions' camp.
Even if Olgetree wins the third receiver spot behind Megatron and Golden Tate, he won't have much fantasy value. The Lions and Matthew Stafford love to incorporate their running backs and tight ends on passing plays which will limit the amount of balls Ogletree sees. Still, it's something to keep an eye on as an injury to someone significant could lead to Ogletree having fantasy relevance once again.
