NFL fantasy football: Ravens seeking receivers

Baltimore wants WR help: Of the many losses the Baltimore Ravens suffered in the offseason, Anquan Boldin’s might resonate the loudest. It places plenty of pressure on Torrey Smith to fill the veteran’s big shoes, which might not be something he’s ready to do alone. At least that’s the impression you get when you hear assistant general manager Eric DeCosta say “the hunt goes on” for help at the receiver position. Right now, it’s hard to imagine the Ravens will find someone to be a dedicated No. 2 receiver. If you’re seeking value at the position in Baltimore, it’s likely to begin and end with Smith.

Giants expect to sign Cruz: Another week has passed in the budding standoff between Victor Cruz and the New York Giants. The difference between the two sides is somewhere in the neighborhood of $3 million, though co-owner John Mara expects both parties to come to an agreement. Sure, it would be nice for Cruz to be around for OTAs, but we’re not going to get too concerned as long as a deal can get done in time for the wideout to be available for training camp.

Browns optimistic about Cameron: The Cleveland Browns are attempting an offensive makeover, shifting most of the focus to running back Trent Richardson, with Brandon Weeden and the passing game becoming a secondary option. Part of that option could include tight end Jordan Cameron. Now that Ben Watson has headed south to New Orleans, Cameron will have his shot to take over the gig. He’ll have a good support system around him. Both head coach Rob Chudzinski and offensive coordinator Norv Turner have mentored some of the league’s most productive tight ends. It doesn’t mean Cameron will immediately blossom into a huge fantasy factor. But it does make him a player to keep an eye on late in drafts.
