Dolphins WR Armon Binns came along, and was so dominant in practice during his three weeks with the team last year, coaches made him the slot receiver for the final three games and began calling plays for him. Fast forward six months and, fortunately for Miami, this waiver-wire find continues to deliver.
The articles continues that if Binns continues on his present pace during training camp and the exhibition season, he could push Brandon Gibson for his role as Miami's slot receiver.

Nobody in the Dolphins' offense helped his stock more this offseason than WR Armon Binns, who dropped two passes in the season finale. “That left a bad taste in my mouth,” he said. “I want to show Ryan I can be consistent, show them who the real Armon Binns is.”
Joe Philbin likes having bigger receivers in the slot: 6-0 Brandon Gibson or 6-3 Binns. “Sometimes, it’s easier when you have a bigger body at times cruising through the middle,” Philbin said. “I don’t want to jinx him – I’m usually the kiss of death – but [Binns] is playing faster.”

An update on the Bengals depth chart:
At the receiver spot opposite A.J. Green, Brandon Tate is listed as the starter over Armon Binns. Tate missed part of last week’s practices with a hamstring injury, but did play in Sunday’s mock game and had a touchdown to complete the Black team’s two-minute drill. When healthy, the fourth-year receiver has taken the early snaps with the first unit in 11-on-11 drills.
We're expecting TE Jermaine Gresham to be the de facto WR2 in Cincinnati this year.

Tate, who did both last season, is going to have a more extended role on offense.

Late last season, teams could take away the passing game by shutting down WR A.J. Green because the Bengals did not have a receiver who excelled on short to medium routes. With Jerome Simpson and Andre Caldwell gone, it looks to be a three-player competition among Brandon Tate, Armon Binns and Mohamed Sanu. Tate and Binns showed improvement during OTAs and minicamp, but Sanu, a third-round pick, might have the edge because he is a physical receiver who excels between the numbers.
Tate appears to be in the lead for the WR2 job, though it's early. We're expecting TE Jermaine Gresham to get the second-most targets in the Cincy passing game.

Bengals OC Jay Gruden on WR Brandon Tate, who has spent some time running with the first-team in workouts: “He’s been one of the best surprises of camp for me. Last year he came in late (after being acquired on waivers from New England) and was mainly a return guy and our fifth receiver and never really got in the flow with the group at wide receiver. Now I think he’s more confident, he sees that he belongs as an NFL wide receiver, and I think the confidence level that he has is showing. He’s got all the ability. He runs all of the routes great, he’s got great feel, and he’s done an outstanding job.”

Head coach Marvin Lewis did say last week that if the season started tomorrow either Brandon Tate or Armon Binns would be the starter because they have experience in the offense. Mohamed Sanu and Marvin Jones are just learning it.
Whoever wins the WR2 job in Cincy will be fantasy relevant, so this is something to monitor as the summer progresses.
