ESPN - [Full Article]

With Corey Coleman gone and Josh Gordon still away from the team, the Browns will look at a number of possibilities at wide receiver to go along with Jarvis Landry.

"The demand is that much higher now for other guys to step up, for other guys to get opportunities to make plays and earn their keep," Landry said. "In the first team meeting, coach Hue [Jackson] said you have to earn what you get. Other guys have opportunities to do that now."

The top two guys who figure to get those opportunities are Antonio Callaway and Rashard Higgins.

Fantasy Impact:

The story said Callaway's emergence in camp could be a big reason the Browns shipped off Coleman. Callaway hasn't played since his college sophomore season because of a suspension at Florida. Higgins is also in the mix and played in 15 games with Cleveland last year.

Scouting Report

Fantasy Upside

If the Bills took the time to trade for Corey Coleman, they must see something in him. He is a former first-round draft pick who is entering his third season. Many receivers finally figure it out in their third year and Coleman could be one of those guys. He will probably be the starter opposite Kelvin Benjamin and that means potential targets and receptions. Coleman escaped Cleveland which is always a positive.

Fantasy Downside

Coleman only played 19-of-36 games for Cleveland and his production was poor—56 receptions in two seasons isn't much for a featured receiver. He might be better off in Buffalo but the QB situation for the Bills is far from settled.

2018 Bottom Line

A change of scenery might help Coleman but he is probably someone to monitor on the waiver wire. Even as a Bill, he isn't getting drafted. We have him ranked as our No. 107 receiver. Stay away.
