Browns WR Nate Burleson, who's played with the likes of Randy Moss and Calvin Johnson, knows there are no superstars in the bunch without Gordon, but says that coach Mike Pettine's "receiver-by-committee" plan is sound. It features 12th-year pro Burleson; two-time Pro Bowler Miles Austin; Anthony Armstrong, who played for offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan in Washington; and Andrew Hawkins, who's itching to break out of the shadows of A.J Green and Co. in Cincinnati, where he played last season.

"I think we've got some pieces to the puzzle that can be really powerful,'' said Burleson. "We've got some guys that can go up and get it. Miles is a beast, man. He looks like a linebacker and he's fast, he's strong, he snatches everything. You've got guys at one point were top five. Miles was, man! He's come out here these last couple of days and shown why he was so good here in Dallas, and he wants to prove that he can stay healthy and make plays."

Fantasy Impact:

Browns receivers are confident they'll be ok without Gordon if it comes to that. But from a fantasy perspective, owners are just going to have to wait and see. They aren't seeing a lot of action in typical drafts so these guys will likely end up as waiver wire targets. The QB situation could also play a role. Brian Hoyer looked pretty good in limited action last year and Johnny Manziel is a wild card. In terms of receivers, TE Jordan Cameron looks to have the most value at this point.

The Miami Herald - [Full Article]

The Dolphins hoped that one or two of their backup receivers would have emerged by now, but offensive coordinator Mike Sherman said that still has not happened.

Sherman indicated Monday that Davone Bess and Brian Hartline “have separated themselves,” but “we’re still looking for the next two guys to step forward.”

On Sunday, Anthony Armstrong received the most receiver snaps (26) after Hartline (77) and Bess (76). But Armstrong caught only two of the six passes thrown to him, for 9 yards, and failed to latch onto a catchable ball on a third-down play in the fourth quarter.

Legedu Naanee played 18 snaps and wasn’t thrown a pass.

“I would like us to get Naanee in position to get some balls,” Sherman said.

Fantasy Impact:

Hartline is a fantasy WR4 and should be owned in most formats. Bess has more value in PPR leagues than he does in standard formats.

Redskins wide receiver competition — Leonard Hankerson appeared to have an edge in the battle for the wideout spot opposite Pierre Garcon, but Josh Morgan — after a week on the sideline – had a decent showing in the preseason opener.

Santana Moss looks like the favorite at slot receiver, and then a gang of young players find themselves battling for the final few spots on a crowded receiver corps. Anthony Armstrong (shoulder) is expected to return to action after missing the last week.

Meanwhile Brandon Banks aims to bounce back from a disappointing preseason debut, and Aldrick Robinson and Terrence Austin also aim to catch up.

Redskins QB Robert Griffin III will conduct passing sessions with several of the team's receivers in Waco, TX.

“I’m going to go back and work out with some of my teammates who are coming into town with me to Waco,” RG3 told me. “So, it’ll be a busy time, but I’m gearing up for this long year that I know it’s going to be in the NFL with the long season and the type of grind I have to be ready to go through.”

He still has an apartment in Waco, where he attended Baylor University. So, he’ll live out his time there, but he won’t do it alone. As for names, the Heisman Trophy winner dropped Santana Moss, Pierre Garcon, Anthony Armstrong, Aldrick Robinson, Fred Davis, Brandon Banks and others who will join him.
