Corey Coleman Fantasy Football News 2019

The Giants have activated WR Corey Coleman from their practice squad. The 2016 first-rounder has bounced around to 4 different teams already this season and has yet to make an appearance. We'll see if he gets on the field for the rebuilding/tanking Giants. There's opportunity behind Odell Beckham and Sterling Shepard.

The Patriots have signed WR Corey Coleman to a 1-year deal. It's an intriguing landing spot considering New England's shallow WR corps and the presence of one Tom Brady. But Coleman has already flamed out with 2 teams this offseason, including a Bills squad with the worst WR corps in the league. We'll keep an eye on him, but Coleman isn't worth a roster spot in redraft leagues right now.

The Bills will release WR Corey Coleman, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. The move comes on cutdown day, where every team must pare its roster to 53 players. But this comes as a surprise given that Buffalo gave Cleveland a draft pick for Coleman -- and, of course, the continued fall for the 2016 first-round pick. The Bills will enter 2018 with 1 of the league's worst WR groups. Coleman figures to find a 3rd team quickly, as he heads into his age-24 season. He remains worth a dynasty stash but will obviously need to work his way back onto the redraft radar in fantasy football.

Bills insider Sal Capaccio says the team's top 5 WRs are set -- and Corey Coleman isn't 1 of them. That would put him in danger of not making the final roster, as the team is also reportedly enamored with rookie Ray-Ray McCloud as a potential special-teams contributor and reserve WR. Keeping guys like Rod Streater and Andre Holmes over Coleman would seem crazy, but HC Sean McDermott will make the former Brown earn his spot. Coleman is no more than a late-round flier in best-ball leagues at this point. Capaccio says Kelvin Benjamin, Zay Jones and Jeremy Kerley are the Bills' top 3 WRs.

The Bills announced Sunday night that they've acquired WR Corey Coleman from the Browns for an undisclosed draft pick. Coleman lost 13 games to injury over his 2 seasons in Cleveland after arriving as a 1st-round pick. Coleman dealt with weak QB play while posting a 42.7% catch rate and just-OK 12.8 yards per catch. In Buffalo, he should compete for the #2 WR role behind Kelvin Benjamin, who will hit unrestricted free agency in the spring. Zay Jones, a 2017 second-round pick, and veteran journeyman Jeremy Kerley figure to supply the primary competition. Coleman remains signed through 2019, with a team option for 2020.

Browns WR Antonio Callaway is back on the field after missing most of the spring with a groin injury. And he's been impressing. Callaway "tore up the defensive backs in 1-on-1 drills" on Thursday, according to insider Mary Kay Cabot. He "looked fast and healthy." Callaway lasted into the 4th round of this year's draft due largely to character concerns. Some had him pegged as a 2nd-round talent. Cabot believes the rookie could push Corey Coleman for his spot on the depth chart. That battle becomes more and more interesting the longer Josh Gordon is away from the team.

Browns WR Antonio Callaway missed 7 of 12 offseason practices with a groin injury, per beat writer Nate Ulrich. He should be back at full health by the time Cleveland opens up training camp on July 26. The rookie will spend camp battling Corey Coleman for the #3 role behind Josh Gordon and Jarvis Landry. Callaway will be given a chance to earn return duties, too.

Browns HC Hue Jackson said Friday that he's giving OC Todd Haley "total autonomy" of the offense. He's "one of the best in the business," Jackson added of Haley. Consider this good news for all of Cleveland's skill-position guys. The Browns have ranked 31st and 32nd in points scored under Jackson the past 2 seasons. Haley arrives with 11 years of experience as a HC or OC. Eight of his squads have finished in the top half of the league in total points, including 6 top-10 finishes.

The Browns officially added WR Corey Coleman to the active roster on Thursday. He'll play this weekend for the 1st time since breaking his hand in mid-September. Coleman should quickly re-emerge as the top option in Cleveland's passing attack. His problems are shoddy QB play and the league's toughest remaining WR schedule. Don't consider him more than a WR3 the rest of the way -- and a WR4 in this week's brutally tough matchup against Jacksonville.

Browns WR Corey Coleman (hand) has been designated 1 of the team's to-return-from-IR players and will practice on Monday. It means that he's on track to return when 1st eligible in Week 11. Coleman figures to quickly re-emerge as Cleveland's top WR. The problems are that he'll be playing in the league's 22nd-ranked passing offense and face a brutal schedule that includes 4 top-10 WR defenses among the last 6 games.

The Browns have placed WR Corey Coleman (hand) on IR, knocking him out for at least the next 8 weeks. He's only worth stashing in dynasty/keeper leagues and deep redrafts. Coleman's absence leaves Rashard Higgins, Kenny Britt and Ricardo Louis as Cleveland's top 3 WRs.

Browns WR Corey Coleman is expected to miss 6-8 weeks with his broken hand, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. No surprise there after Coleman missed 6 games with a broken hand last year. Rapoport calls him a "prime candidate" for IR-designated-to-return, which would cost him 8 weeks.

X-rays confirmed that Browns WR Corey Coleman broke his hand in Sunday's loss to the Ravens, according to ESPN's Josina Anderson. We haven't seen a timetable for return yet, but Coleman missed 6 weeks with the same injury last year. Expect something similar this time around. He could re-emerge as a fantasy asset over the 2nd half of the season but is droppable in shallower fantasy leagues. Coleman's injury is theoretically a big opportunity for Kenny Britt, but he's been invisible through 2 games. WR Rashard Higgins led the team with 11 targets, 7 catches and 95 yards in Week 2. He's worth a look in deeper leagues.

The Browns "fear" WR Corey Coleman broke his hand in Sunday's loss to the Ravens, according to insider Mary Kay Cabot. Coleman exited early in the 4th quarter and underwent an x-ray after the game. The team should already know if the hand is broken, so we should get confirmation soon. Coleman missed 6 games last season with a broken hand. It's unclear if this is the same one.

Browns WR Corey Coleman led the team with 66 yards on 4 catches in Saturday's preseason game against the Bucs. Three of those 4 grabs came from QB DeShone Kizer, including this impressive leaping grab. Coleman has quietly put together a healthy August and looked good in preseason action. There's some breakout potential for the 2016 first-rounder. And Coleman's ADP is sitting in the 9th round.
