Kevin Ogletree favored to be Lions' No. 3 receiver


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/31/2014) Lions receiver Kevin Ogletree has opened training camp by running with Calvin Johnson and Golden Tate on the first team, reports MLive.com. Ogletree took the lead for the No. 3 job with stellar play during OTAs and "several nice catches during minicamp," the report said.

"This is the biggest opportunity of my career," Ogletree said, "and it would be selfish of me not to indulge in it and bury myself in the playbook. Just overcommit myself to getting better every day.

"I've always felt confident about my game. But like I said, this is the biggest opportunity of my career. And there was no way I was going to mess this thing up."

Ogletree caught 13 passes for 199 yards and a touchdown after signing with Detroit for the final 12 games last year. He went through a grueling training program to get ready for 2014, the website said. While he lacks Johnson's size or Tate's speed, Ogletree "runs nice, consistent patterns and has had a knack for getting separation from defensive backs."

Ogletree also has had few, if any drops in camp, the website said.


Four receivers for one spot in Detroit?


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/17/2014) The Lions official team website believes four receivers will compete for one roster spot in camp this summer. Kevin Ogletree, Kris Durham, rookie T.J. Jones and second-year wideout Corey Fuller are considered "leading candidates" for the job. Ogletree and Durham lead the way in terms of experience but Fuller and Jones are younger and might have more explosiveness to contribute. 

Lions bring back Kevin Ogletree


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(3/11/2014) The Lions have re-signed receiver Kevin Ogletree to a one-year deal, reports Pro Football Talk.

Ogletree had 21 catches for 269 yards and two touchdowns in 2013.


Lions wide receivers do little Week 17


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/29/2013) Lions pass catchers Kevin Ogletree, Nate Burleson and Joseph Fauria didn't play a big role Week 17.

Ogletree led the way for the club, picking up 75 yards on five catches. Burleson also caught five passes, and gained 64 yards. Fauria caught three passes for 20 yards. 


Lions get minor contributions in Week 16


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/22/2013) The Lions received minor contributions from a few role players during Sunday's loss to the Giants in Week 16.

Kevin Ogletree shines late for the Lions


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(11/28/2013) Lions reserve receiver Kevin Ogletree saw a little bit of playing time on Thanksgiving, making a sensational 20-yard catch with one hand in the front right corner of the end zone for a touchdown. It was his lone opportunity to make a reception on the game. 

Ogletree played in place of starter Kris Durham, who hurt his shoulder in the fourth quarter. The Lions play at the Eagles in Week 14. 


Two Lions receivers each contribute two catches Week 7


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/20/2013) Lions wide receivers Kevin Ogletree and Ryan Broyles each contributed two catches during a 27-24 loss Week 7 vs. Cincinnati. Ogletree totaled 50 yards, while Broyles had 16 yards.

Ogletree had the second-longest catch of the game for Detroit -- a 43-yard reception on a 3rd-and-20 play in the second half. Broyles was targeted on a 16-yard touchdown pass in the first half, but he was overthrown by quarterback Matthew Stafford.

The Lions are back in action Week 8 vs. Dallas.


Kevin Ogletree working to become deep threat for Lions


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/17/2013) With Lions receiver Pat Edwards being demoted to the practice squad, Kevin Ogletree could become the team's top vertical threat opposite Calvin Johnson, according to MLive.com.

"For sure," coach Jim Schwartz said. "We wouldn't bring a guy in unless we thought he had good enough skills that he could do those kind of things."

Ogletree said he's fine with running deep routes since it fits his skill set.

"That's what I been comfortable doing throughout my years of playing football," Ogletree said. "That goes back to baseball, playing center field, just tracking the ball, being able to run, seeing it off the bat, or in this case, out of the quarterback's arm."


Two Lions make minor contributions in defeat of Browns


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10/13/2013) Seven Lions receivers caught passes Sunday in Cleveland, including six on the first two possessions. The only exception was wide receiver Kevin Ogletree, who caught one second-half pass for 5 yards. Also contributing offensively was running back Mikel Leshoure, who added 9 yards on two carries.

Kevin Ogletree has 20 yards in Lions debut


by Nando Di Fino | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/6/2013) Lions receiver Kevin Ogletree, who joined the team earlier this week and was making his Detroit debut on Sunday, caught two passes for 20 yards in the team's 22-9 loss to the Packers. Ogletree was targeted three times. 

Lions star wideout Calvin Johnson was declared inactive with a knee injury prior to the game, likely forcing Ogletree into more action than he would have otherwise seen. Through five games this season (four with Tampa Bay), Ogletree has 90 yards and a receiving touchdown. 

The Lions face the Browns in Week 6. 


Kevin Ogletree wants to play days after signing


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/3/2013) Newly signed Lions receiver Kevin Ogletree is hoping a cram session of Detroit's playbook will get him in the lineup Week 5 at Green Bay.

"I hope (to play)," Ogletree said Thursday, per MLive.com. "I'm in my playbook at night time, until I close my eyes, so all the work is being put in for that. I just want to help us. I want to play Sunday for sure. It's a Sunday in October, so I expect to play. We'll see what happens when that time comes around."

Ogletree has experience playing in the slot and on the outside.

"I think he'll give us some depth there that will help us," offensive coordinator Scott Linehan said. "We looked at quite a bit of his target tapes from the last couple years, and (he) showed some promise. It's early, we don't know a whole lot about him yet. We'll see. He'll probably be asked to do something for us because of our receiver depth, but we'll decide when that'll be. This week, next week, we'll see. We're just really thin at receiver right now."

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com

Vincent Jackson was targeted four times and only finished with one catch for 13 yards. Kevin Ogletree finished with two catches for 13 yards on four targets.

Kevin Ogletree appears to be edging out Tiquan Underwood


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(8/17/2013) With Vincent Jackson and Mike Williams taking limited snaps in the preseason, the Buccaneers' understudies received plenty of work Friday against the Patriots. Tiquan Underwood and Kevin Ogletree both put up solid performances as part of their battle for the No. 3 receiver spot.

Ogletree was a bigger factor in the offense, as he was targeted six times and saw more time with the first -team offense. He brought in three passes for 36 yards, including a 13-yard touchdown, while being targeted six times to lead the team.

Underwood was more explosive, but featured less in the offense's plans. He was targeted just three times, bringing two passes in for 43 yards.

The Tampa Bay Times speculated after the game Ogletree has taken the lead for the No. 3 spot in the preseason.

by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer

Cowboys could move on from Ogletree


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(2/19/2013) The Dallas Morning News reports the Cowboys will likely let No. 3 receiver Kevin Ogletree leave as a free agent this offseason. The report says the Cowboys gave Ogletree a chance to establish himself as their No. 3 receiver the last two seasons and both times he has failed to hold onto the job. By the end of 2012, Dwayne Harris had surpassed Ogletree in terms of production and playing time. Though the Cowboys don’t have much depth at receiver, Ogletree isn’t likely to get a third chance at the No. 3 receivers job
