|Patriots sign WR Corey Coleman|
Former Browns standout shuffled around during training camp

|Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) on Twitter: "The #Patriots are signing former first-round WR Corey Coleman, I’m told. A huge opportunity for Coleman to restart his career catching passes from Tom Brady." (Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: Once again, the Pats swoop in to rescue an embattled player and give him fantasy relevance. Phillip Dorsett looked fine in Week 1, but it's possible Brady wants more weapons and Coleman could certainly find a home in New England. He's on the WR3/4 radar and could be worth a flier in waivers this week.

A few weeks not enough time to grab roster spot

|Source: The #Bills are releasing former first-round pick WR Corey Coleman, who the acquired from the #Browns. A few weeks just not enough time to grab a roster spot. He’s looking for another fresh start. (Ian Rapoport on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: The Bills gave up a 2020 7th round pick for Coleman but has quickly decided he can't crack their underwhelming receiving group. Kelvin Benjamin, Zay Jones and Jeremy Kerley are currently the top 3 options for... whoever starts at quarterback. The Bills are a nightmare for fantasy owners.
|Dez Bryant to Browns?|
Embattled WR still drawing Cleveland's interest
By: Antonio D'Arcangelis | Tue Aug 7, 8:54 am
|Dez Bryant hasn't accepted any offers or made any official visits to Cleveland, but he's still on the Browns wish list, according to Ian Rapoport. With Corey Coleman in Buffalo and Josh Gordon yet to report, there's a need for a talented veteran WR alongside Jarvis Landry, who'll mainly operate out of the slot. (NFL on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: Bryant's fantasy stock wouldn't be solidified too perfectly in Cleveland, but there's some opportunity for high-end WR2 numbers if something comes together. Still -- there are more proven commodities in better spots for his ADP.
|Stock rising for Antonio Callaway|
Browns WR rising to top of depth chart with Corey Coleman in Buffalo
By: Antonio D'Arcangelis | Tue Aug 7, 8:48 am
|Slot specialist Jarvis Landry may have emerged as Tyrod Taylor's go-to guy in Cleveland, but in the absence of Josh Gordon and recently traded Corey Coleman, WR Antonio Callaway has risen to the top of the depth chart. (PFT)|
FFToday's Take: Callaway has looked exactly how he was described by general manager John Dorsey shortly after the Browns selected him early in the fourth round. Off-field issues torpedoed his draft stock, but many scouts believed Callaway could have been the first or second receiver selected in the draft if it were based just on overall talent and ability. He's drawn comparisons to Santonio Holmes and could be a sneaky fantasy pick.
|Browns trade WR Corey Coleman to Bills|
Making room for Dez Bryant?
By: Mike Krueger | Sun Aug 5, 8:16 pm
|Cleveland is trading former first-round pick WR Corey Coleman to the Buffalo Bills for a draft pick, per source.

FFToday's Take: The Browns are expected to get Josh Gordon back in camp sometime soon but you have to wonder if this move doesn't clear a path for the signing of Dez Bryant. The Bills are desperate for offensive playmakers so depending on the compensation returned, this seems like a good gamble on a former first round 2016 pick.
