Ryan Tannehill - QBPosted 5/23/18 11:34am ET
Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill (knee) is fully cleared for all football activities as of last week. Tannehill no longer wears a knee brace and said he's feeling 'really good right now' after recovering from a torn anterior cruciate ligament he suffered two years ago.
Huddle Up: Tannehill hasn't played football since 2016 and only played 13 games then. Even when he's healthy he's not a reliable fantasy starter, not to mention the sizable injury risk. At best he's a bye-week fill-in.
Ryan Tannehill - QBPosted 5/22/18 5:34am ET
Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill (knee) will participate in full in organized team activities Tuesday, May 22.
Huddle Up: Tannehill has given plenty of evidence of the kind of quarterback he is, and that's just not a fantasy starter. He's a midrange QB2.
Danny Amendola - WRPosted 5/17/18 7:15pm ET
Miami Dolphins WR Danny Amendola's work ethic has been impressing the coaching staff and rubbing off on the locker room, according to head coach Adam Gase. 'Any time you can get a guy who can not only produce for you but can be a great example for other guys in your locker room, he's making other guys better,' Gase said. 'He makes 24 other offensive guys better if they watch him work.'
Huddle Up: Amendola should have a steady role as Miami's slot receiver this year, but injuries are always a concern. He's a potential WR3 in PPR formats.
Ryan Tannehill - QBPosted 5/15/18 3:08pm ET
Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill (knee) will not be limited much if he is limited at all during organized team activities next week, according to sources. The coaching staff may choose to limit him more no matter what team doctors say, though.
Huddle Up: Tannehill seems geared for a productive offseason if his knee can handle it. Brock Osweiler and David Fales should see plenty of repetitions, too, in order to keep Tannehill fresh and to avoid aggravation. Tannehill's production isn't at a QB1 level when healthy, so draft him as a backup, per usual.
Danny Amendola - WRPosted 5/14/18 10:08am ET
Miami Dolphins WRs Danny Amendola and Albert Wilson will be candidates to return punts this upcoming season, according to special teams coordinator Darren Rizzi.
Huddle Up: Amendola and Wilson will have roles in the passing game, so their work as returners probably would be limited. Amendola has a chance to be a late-round option in deeper leagues, while Wilson probably can be avoided in most leagues.
Mike Gesicki - TEPosted 5/12/18 6:56pm ET
Miami Dolphins offensive coordinator Dowell Loggains said they could use more sets with three tight ends this year in order to utilize TE Mike Gesicki.
Huddle Up: All signs continue to point to Gesicki having a sizeable role in the offense. The rookie isn't a complete package at the position, but he is ready to contribute as a receiver immediately. He is a TE2 with a bunch of upside.
Mike Gesicki - TEPosted 5/11/18 6:25pm ET
Miami Dolphins TE Mike Gesicki said his best attributes right now are 'scoring touchdowns in the red zone' and making contested catches. 'That's one of reasons I was picked where I was,' Gesicki said.
Huddle Up: Gesicki isn't ready to contribute as a blocker, but he should make an immediate impact as a receiver. His potential in the red zone makes him worth grabbing as a TE2.
Kenyan Drake - RBPosted 5/10/18 10:13am ET
Miami Dolphins RB Kenyan Drake is ready to 'bust out' this season, according to head coach Adam Gase.
Huddle Up: We can only assume that 'bust out' and 'break out' are the same thing. Gase is right, though, Drake is a prime breakout candidate heading into 2018. His main competition will be soon-to-be 35-year-old Frank Gore, but Gore should primarily be used in short-yardage and goal-line scenarios. Drake sits comfortably in RB2 territory with added PPR appeal.
DeVante Parker - WRPosted 5/10/18 11:36am ET
Miami Dolphins WR DeVante Parker has done a great job so far this offseason and seems to be playing with more of a purposed, according to head coach Adam Gase. Gase posited that injuries have been the main hindrance to Parker's growth and development, including a high-ankle sprain last season. Furthermore, he believes the presence of fellow WRs Kenny Stills and Danny Amendola will aid Parker's growth.
Huddle Up: Here we are again - another offseason in which Parker is being talked up. Last year was supposed to be Parker's breakout party, but the ankle injury was legitimate. If he can stay healthy in 2018, we might finally see that long-awaited season. View him as a WR3.
Mike Gesicki - TEPosted 4/28/18 2:13pm ET
Miami Dolphins TE Mike Gesicki has a good chance to start as a rookie since the team released TE Julius Thomas earlier this offseason.
Huddle Up: Owners should keep an eye on the situation to see if Gesicki can win the job during training camp. He should have a solid role in the passing game this season and could be a No. 2 fantasy tight end in most leagues.
Mike Gesicki - TEPosted 4/27/18 9:54pm ET
Miami Dolphins TE Mike Gesicki needs to improve as an in-line blocker, according to general manager Chris Grier, but Grier said it is normal for tight ends with big frames to need time to develop that part of their game.
Huddle Up: Gesicki may have his snaps limited while he develops as a blocker, but that shouldn't stop him from using his size and athleticism to cause havoc in the red zone. He'll be worth a look as a TE2.
DeVante Parker - WRPosted 4/24/18 12:46pm ET
Miami Dolphins WR DeVante Parker's fifth-year option was exercised, as expected, Tuesday, April 24.
Huddle Up: Many thought Parker would break out last season, which he didn't, but his 2018 campaign is tailor made for a breakout with Jarvis Landry now out of the picture. As Miami's No. 1 wide receiver, he'll have WR2 upside but is a safer draftee as a WR3.
DeVante Parker - WRPosted 4/19/18 7:10am ET
Miami Dolphins WR DeVante Parker's fifth-year option is expected to be exercised. It would be worth around $9.5 million.
Huddle Up: Three years in the league, and he has a 139-1,908-8 line. However, the team let Jarvis Landry walk this offseason, which leaves Parker as the lead wide out. It's a make-it-or-break-it year for him as a WR3 in fantasy.
Ryan Tannehill - QBPosted 4/18/18 11:45am ET
Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill will be the starter this season. That proclamation was recently reiterated by Miami executives, who added that a rookie quarterback would spend their season watching and learning fromTannehill.
Huddle Up: The Dolphins can't be totally confident in Tannehill given his serious knee injury last year and overall underwhelming performance throughout his career. He is capable of being a quality starter but is not consistently good enough to warrant weekly QB1 merit.
Kenyan Drake - RBPosted 4/14/18 6:56pm ET
Miami Dolphins RB Kenyan Drake said Friday, April 13, that he has added more than five pounds this offseason to handle a full season as the starting back.
Huddle Up: The Dolphins added Frank Gore during free agency, but Drake should still be the lead back. After impressing as the starter down the stretch last season, he's a RB2 candidate heading into 2018.
Danny Amendola - WRPosted 4/14/18 8:18pm ET
Miami Dolphins WR Danny Amendola said New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick's unwillingness to give him a competitive offer caused him to sign with the Dolphins in free agency. 'When free agency broke, I came to the realization that he wasn't going to really come close to any of the other offers I had,' Amendola said.
Huddle Up: If Amendola can actually stay on the field, he should slide into the slot to replace Jarvis Landry in Miami. He will have WR3 potential, especially in PPR formats.
DeVante Parker - WRPosted 3/27/18 5:28pm ET
Miami Dolphins WR DeVante Parker still has the support of head coach Adam Gase, who believes health is about the only thing keeping Parker from reaching his potential. "I don't think there is any question what anybody feels he can do. I don't even think it's a potential thing. I think it's a health thing. I think it's just about however we can keep him healthy. I think that's when we get our best DeVante Parker. So I think we're trying to do as much as we can to figure out a way that when we hit spring we start from there and keep building on it. ... We need a little bit of luck. We need him to do the right things. And he has been. He's been trying to do everything the right way. And it's just kind of have to see where the chips fall," Gase said.
Huddle Up: Parker was a puff-piece all-star last offseason and lived up to his hype for the most part in September, but an ankle injury in early October pretty much was the beginning of the end to what was supposed to be a breakout season. With Jarvis Landry no longer around and Parker entering a contract year, the stage is set for Parker yet again. The good news for fantasy owners is that since so many have been burned by him, he has a shot to deliver WR2 production at a WR4 draft cost.
Ryan Tannehill - QBPosted 3/14/18 1:44pm ET
Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill restructured his contract to give the Dolphins more salary cap space. Instead of a $17.48 million base salary he will earn $16.7 million.
Huddle Up: Tannehill has battled injuries and mediocrity throughout his career, so why not help out the team that has kept him around? The starting job will be Tannehill's to lose this offseason, but Miami is in the market for a quarterback, too. Tannehill is no more than a QB2 even if/when he does start.
Julius Thomas - TEPosted 3/14/18 1:36pm ET
The Miami Dolphins released TE Julius Thomas on Wednesday, March 14. He was due to make $6.5 million in 2018, with $2 million guaranteed. If the contract contains offset language, the team will get dollar-for-dollar credit if/when he lands with another organization.
Huddle Up: Thomas had two huge seasons with back-to-back 12-touchdown campaigns in Denver from 2013-14. He parlayed that into big money with stops in Jacksonville in Miami over the past two seasons. However, he has been unable to reproduced that success, totaling 12 scores from 2015-17. He'll likely get a chance elsewhere, but take a wait-and-see approach with him as far as fantasy is concerned in 2018.
Jarvis Landry - WRPosted 3/9/18 1:52pm ET
The Cleveland Browns agreed to trade two draft picks - one in 2018 and 2019 - to the Miami Dolphins in exchange for WR Jarvis Landry to the Cleveland Browns on Friday, March 9, according to sources. ESPN's Adam Schefter also reports the Browns are working on signing Landry to an extension.
Huddle Up: The Browns have a ton of cap space and will not give up a first or second-round pick in this trade, so Cleveland fans should be happy. Landry gives the Browns an imposing duo if Josh Gordon can stay on the field and may end up replacing Corey Coleman, whose future with the team is reportedly uncertain. Landry's 2018 fantasy stock will depend somewhat on what Cleveland does at quarterback this offseason, but he should remain a high-volume target and top-30 fantasy wideout.
Jarvis Landry - WRPosted 3/9/18 1:40pm ET
The Miami Dolphins agreed to trade WR Jarvis Landry to the Cleveland Browns in exchange for two draft picks - one in 2018 and 2019 - on Friday, March 9, according to sources.
Huddle Up: It's another vote of confidence in DeVante Parker, who should emerge as the clear top receiving option in Miami if he can finally stay healthy. Parker has teased fantasy owners for years, but this deal gives him one more chance to prove he can be a top-20 wideout. Kenny Stills also stand to benefit as well and should be considered a low-end WR3. The move also give Jakeem Grant an opportunity to shine as well.
Jarvis Landry - WRPosted 3/8/18 8:18am ET
Miami Dolphins impending free-agent WR Jarvis Landry signed his franchise tender Thursday, March 8, according to a source.
Huddle Up: The move makes it possible for Landry to be traded, which is probably still likely. He's a solid WR2 no matter where he goes.
Jarvis Landry - WRPosted 3/8/18 9:09am ET
Miami Dolphins WR Jarvis Landry has drawn trade interest from the Cleveland Browns, according to The Miami Herald's Adam Beasley. A trade is not imminent, however.
Huddle Up: Several teams have been linked to Landry already and he can now be traded since he has signed his franchise tender. He's the best slot receiver available this offseason and should retain low-end WR1 to high-end WR2 value in PPR formats.
Jarvis Landry - WRPosted 3/4/18 7:48pm ET
The Baltimore Ravens are one of at least five teams inquiring about a potential trade for Miami Dolphins WR Jarvis Landry, according to a source.
Huddle Up: Landry would provide a needed upgrade to the Baltimore receiving corps, and he would immediately become the go-to option. No matter where Landry ends up, he's a safe bet to deliver WR2 production in PPR formats.
Jarvis Landry - WRPosted 3/3/18 10:29am ET
Miami Dolphins WR Jarvis Landry is not a trade target for the New Orleans Saints even though the Saints had interest in him earlier in the week, according to a source.
Huddle Up: The Saints are expected to look to add a receiver this offseason but have two terrific starters in Michael Thomas and Ted Ginn Jr. Thomas should be a No. 1 receiver in all fantasy leagues next season, while Ginn can be a solid No. 3 fantasy receiver. Landry likely will be traded at some point this offseason and can be at least a No. 3 receiver no matter where he goes.
Jarvis Landry - WRPosted 3/3/18 11:16am ET
Miami Dolphins WR Jarvis Landry said he likely will not play on the one-year franchise tender next season and wants a long-term deal.
Huddle Up: Landry has been allowed to seek a trade and likely will be moved if a team is willing to sign him to a long-term deal. He has been a solid receiver for the last several years and should be a No. 2 or No. 3 fantasy receiver in most leagues.
Jarvis Landry - WRPosted 3/3/18 6:43pm ET
Miami Dolphins WR Jarvis Landry has informed the team that he will be signing his franchise tag, according to a source.
Huddle Up: The Dolphins have told Landry that he may seek a trade, and once he signs his franchise tag, he can officially be traded. He's averaged 100 catches per year since entering the NFL, so Landry should at least be a WR2 in PPR formats no matter where he ends up playing.
Jarvis Landry - WRPosted 3/2/18 6:11pm ET
Miami Dolphins WR Jarvis Landry has the Tennessee Titans on his list of preferred destinations as he seeks a trade, but the Titans have not engaged the Dolphins in any trade discussions, according to an NFL source.
Huddle Up: With Eric Decker a pending free agent, Landry would represent a massive upgrade in the slot. He has been a reception machine since coming into the league, and Landry should be a solid WR2 in almost any offense, especially in PPR formats.
Jarvis Landry - WRPosted 3/1/18 6:10pm ET
Miami Dolphins WR Jarvis Landry has received permission from the Dolphins to seek and facilitate a trade, according to sources.
Huddle Up: It appears that Landry will be playing with a new team next season, but the Dolphins will need to complete the trade. Landry has been a solid receiver of the last several years and could start for a team if he is traded. He can be considered a No. 3 fantasy receiver in 2018.
Jarvis Landry - WRPosted 3/1/18 8:57pm ET
Updating previous reports, the Chicago Bears are among the teams that have emerged as a possible landing spot for Miami Dolphins WR Jarvis Landry.
Huddle Up: If the Kirk Cousins drama is the top storyline of the offseason, the pursuit of Landry might be right behind it. After all, the former LSU star holds the NFL record for most receptions (400) over a player's first four seasons in the league and has the ability to single-handily reinvigorate an offense. If he were to end up in Chicago, recording another 100-catch, 1,000-yard season would be very possible, as he'd far and away be the club's No. 1 option in the passing game.
