Lions WR Kevin Ogletree caught five balls for 75 yards in Detroit's Week 17 loss to Minnesota.

Ogletree drew the Week 17 start with Calvin Johnson (knee) inactive, getting the nod across from Nate Burleson with Kris Durham playing in three-wide sets. A free agent in 2014, Ogletree won't be coveted on the free agent market.

Kevin Ogletree caught a 20-yard touchdown in Detroit's Week 13 win over the Packers.

The score was Ogletree's lone catch of the afternoon, and his first since Week 8. It's quite possible it will be his last of the season.

Lions signed WR Kevin Ogletree.

Ogletree was released by the Bucs on Tuesday because he is an ineffective receiver. Not familiar with Lions OC Scott Linehan's offense, Ogletree could easily be cut next week without ever playing a snap in Detroit. He's likely to be inactive for Week 5 against the Packers.

Bucs released WR Kevin Ogletree.

Ogletree was third on the team in catches (8), targets (21) and yards (70). Perhaps there's more to this story, but it looks like he was cut after too many drops. The Bucs will promote Chris Owusu from the practice squad to take Ogletree's place.

Kevin Ogletree caught five passes for 30 yards in Tampa's Week 4 loss to the Cardinals.

The five catches more than doubled Ogletree's season total (six) coming into Week 4. With 70 yards through four games, Ogletree remains a fantasy nonentity.

Kevin Ogletree caught one pass for five yards in Sunday's Week 2 loss to the Saints.

Operating as the No. 3 receiver, Ogletree was targeted on two unsuccessful deep bombs. He was held without a catch or target in Week 1.

Kevin Ogletree is expected to open the season as the Bucs' No. 3 receiver.

Ogletree will see the majority of his playing time as an outside receiver in three-wide sets, with Vincent Jackson moving to the slot. It's a position that has little upside in OC Mike Sullivan's offense. Through three preseason games, Ogletree has 10 receptions for 114 yards (11.4 YPC) and one touchdown. The Bucs lack quality receiver depth, but he'll be pushed for snaps by Tiquan Underwood.

Kevin Ogletree led the Bucs with five catches for 65 yards in Thursday night's preseason opener against the Ravens.

Ogletree was first in line for three-wide sets alongside Vincent Jackson and Mike Williams, running ahead of Chris Owusu and Tiquan Underwood. Unfortunately for Ogletree, the third receiver in Tampa's offense holds scant fantasy value.

The Tampa Bay Times projects Kevin Ogletree as the Bucs' primary kick and punt returner.

Roscoe Parrish served as the Bucs' return man last season, but he wasn't re-signed. Ogletree has returned just 20 kicks and three punts in his four-year career, so he doesn't have a ton of experience. Tampa Bay did acquire speedster Jeff Demps from the Patriots during the draft, but his status is up in the air due to Demps' preference for track and field.

The Tampa Tribune says the Bucs are "very high" on WR Kevin Ogletree.

Ogletree appears to have a leg up on the competition for the No. 3 job behind Vincent Jackson and Mike Williams. Tiquan Underwood posted a 28/425/2 line on 55 targets in that role last year. It's not a battle fantasy owners need to watch closely.
Tue, Jun 11, 2013 12:41:00 PM

Bucs agreed to terms with WR Kevin Ogletree, formerly of the Cowboys.

Ogletree put up the flukiest game of the 2012 season, catching eight passes for 114 yards and two touchdowns in Week 1. He went on to catch 24 passes in 14 games thereafter. Ogletree, 26 in August, will likely slot in as the No. 3 receiver as the Bucs try and unload Arrelious Benn. Ogletree could face competition from Tiquan Underwood and perhaps a middle-round draft pick.
Thu, Mar 14, 2013 05:12:00 PM does not expect free agent Kevin Ogletree back "at all."

Jerry Jones' in-house website also considers Felix Jones, Mike Jenkins and Kenyon Coleman as good as gone. A perennially underachieving wideout who doesn't hack it on special teams, Ogletree will be greeted by a harsh market.

The Dallas Morning News expects the Cowboys to move on from free agent Kevin Ogletree.

Ogletree whiffed on his latest opportunity to lock down Dallas' No. 3 receiver job last season, and doesn't provide value on special teams. Behind Dwayne Harris on the depth chart and more expensive than second-year pro Cole Beasley, Ogletree is as good as gone in Big D.
Tue, Feb 19, 2013 03:26:00 PM

ESPN Dallas believes it's time for the Cowboys to move on from impending free agent Kevin Ogletree.

Ogletree's Week 1 outburst against the Giants that saw him catch eight passes for 114 yards and two touchdowns was easily the biggest fluke of the 2012 fantasy football season. He went on to reel in just 24 passes in 14 games after that, and was pushed down the depth chart as the season went on. Ogletree is merely a No. 3 or 4 receiver who doesn't play special teams.
