The Eagles nabbed WR Nelson Agholor with the 20th overall pick of the 2015 NFL Draft.  A versatile receiver, Agholor played all over the formation at USC and was also 1 of the top returners in the nation.  He exploded for a 104-1,313-12 line this past season.  Agholor goes 6'0, 198 pounds with 4.42 speed and impressive short-area quickness.  We see lots of Golden Tate in Agholor's game.  He figures to spend most of his time outside the numbers in HC Chip Kelly's offense.  That'll leave WR Jordan Matthews in the slot and Riley Cooper, Miles Austin and Josh Huff to battle for the other outsider spot.

The Eagles are expected to sign WR Miles Austin, as long as he passes his physical, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.  Austin turns 31 in June and has averaged just 11.4 yards per catch over the past 2 seasons.  He's also played in all 16 games just once in the last 4 seasons.  As the roster stands now, Austin would battle 2nd-year WR Josh Huff for the #3 spot on the depth chart.  The Eagles are still likely to add at least 1 more WR in the draft.

Update: Philly has signed Austin to a 1-year deal, $2.3 million deal.

The Browns have placed WR Miles Austin on IR.  He remains in the hospital after suffering a kidney injury in Sunday's loss to the Bills.  Austin's troublesome hamstring cooperated for 12 games, allowing him to post a 47-568-2 line.  A free agent this offseason, Austin should be able to land another cheap deal.  He's just a possession receiver at this point of his career.  His absence for the rest of the 2014 will mean a few extra targets for WRs Josh Gordon and Andrew Hawkins.

Browns WR Miles Austin suffered a kidney injury in Sunday's loss to the Bills and is spending the night in a Buffalo hospital.  It's unclear how long the injury will keep him sidelined.  Austin 86-yard outing this week marked the 1st time all season he's topped 64 yards.  He hasn't scored since Week 3.  Austin isn't worth rostering in fantasy football.

The Browns have released WR Nate Burleson.  The fact that he couldn't make this roster tells you all you need to know about what Burleson has left to offer.  His NFL career is likely over.  Miles Austin and Andrew Hawkins will open the season as Cleveland's top 2 WRs.  Burleson's release makes WR Charles Johnson a more intriguing sleeper.

The NFL has upheld WR Josh Gordon’s full-year suspension. As ESPN’s Adam Schefter points out, the delay in the appeal process now means that Gordon will miss all of next year’s training camp, as well. (The 1-year clock on the ban starts now.) The Browns are sticking by Gordon through the situation, though, so he’ll return as the #1 WR in 2015. Meanwhile, Cleveland is left with Miles Austin, Andrew Hawkins and Nate Burleson as its likely Week 1 starting wideouts. It’s the worst group in the league. TE Jordan Cameron is a good bet to lead the team in targets.

Update: The league will reportedly consider reinstating Gordon in time for practice next spring.

Browns WR Miles Austin has "stood out" in camp so far, according to insider Pat McManamon.  Cleveland, of course, has one of the worst WR groups in the league.  But Josh Gordon has been on the field for most of camp, which makes Austin standing out a bit more impressive.  More importantly, his bum hamstrings have held up so far.  As long as that's the case, Austin looks like a lock to open the season in the Browns' starting lineup.  But his declining skill-set, plus Cleveland's run-first offense, leaves him with little fantasy upside.

The Browns have released WR Earl Bennett.  It's an awful sign that he couldn't even make it to training camp on a team with one of the worst WR groups in the league.  The 27-year-old Bennett figures to get scooped up by another team this summer, but he won't be a 2014 fantasy factor.  Cleveland has Miles Austin, Andrew Hawkins and Nate Burleson atop its Josh Gordon-less WR depth chart.
