Julius Thomas - TEPosted 2/22/18 1:17pm ET
Miami Dolphins TE Julius Thomas will be released this offseason, according to sources. The team will save $6.6 million in salary cap space with the move.
Huddle Up: Thomas was able to play in 14 games this season and finished with 388 yards and three touchdowns. He may be able to find a starting job with a team this offseason but should only be considered a No. 2 fantasy running back.
Kenyan Drake - RBPosted 2/22/18 11:24pm ET
Miami Dolphins RB Kenyan Drake ranked as the third-most elusive running back under an NFL 'Next Gen Stats' metric that measured yardage gained after defenders got within a yard of the ball-carrier. Drake finished third (4.55 yards), behind only New Orleans Saints RB Alvin Kamara (4.76) and Kansas City Chiefs RB Kareem Hunt (4.63).
Huddle Up: Drake definitely showed something special last year after the team jettisoned Jay Ajayi right before the trade deadline. Overall, the second-year tailback rushed for 644 yards on 133 rush attempts -- good for an impressive 4.8 yards per carry -- to go with three touchdowns. He also accumulated 32 catches in the passing game for 239 yards and one receiving score. Assuming he's the full-time starter next year, Drake is looking like a solid RB2.
Jarvis Landry - WRPosted 2/21/18 2:19pm ET
Miami Dolphins WR Jarvis Landry is believed to be looking for a contract similar to the four-year, $58 million contract Green Bay Packers WR Davante Adams recently signed. The Dolphins have offered Landry a contract worth around $13 million per season, according to a source.
Huddle Up: The Dolphins have placed the franchise tag on Landry but may look to trade him at some point. Landry has been a solid receiver over the last several years and can be a No. 3 fantasy receiver next season even if he is traded.
Jarvis Landry - WRPosted 2/20/18 5:20pm ET
Miami Dolphins impending free-agent WR Jarvis Landry received the non-exclusive franchise tag Tuesday, Feb. 20.
Huddle Up: The non-exclusive franchise tag means Landry will have the opportunity to negotiate with other teams and sign an offer sheet, but Miami has the right to match any offer or receive two first-round picks as compensation if it chooses not to match. This move goes against the year-long rhetoric that the Dolphins were willing to let Landry walk and build around DeVante Parker and Kenny Stills. Regardless of what happens moving forward, Landry has proven himself to be a capable fantasy WR2 at the very least.
Jarvis Landry - WRPosted 2/20/18 8:04pm ET
Miami Dolphins impending free-agent WR Jarvis Landry received the non-exclusive franchise tag Tuesday, Feb. 20 - the first day teams could assign the franchise tag to players - which is being interpreted as a desire by the Dolphins to trade him, according to a league source.
Huddle Up: This seems like a likely scenario considering Miami has had over a year to sign Landry to a long-term deal and not been overly aggressive in doing so. A trade would probably be the best thing for Landry, who is coming off a season in which he led the league with 112 catches and caught a career-high nine touchdowns but did so averaging a meager 8.8 yards per reception. Look for the trade talk to heat up at the NFL Combine at the end of next week.
Jarvis Landry - WRPosted 2/11/18 8:14pm ET
Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr formed a connection with Miami Dolphins impending free-agent WR Jarvis Landry at the Pro Bowl, and Paul Gutierrez of ESPN.com believes head coach Jon Gruden could push the front office to pursue Landry.
Huddle Up: Landry is coming off a career-high 112 receptions, and he is averaging 100 catches per year through his first four seasons. He'll be a WR1 candidate in PPR formats no matter he signs.
Julius Thomas - TEPosted 2/7/18 3:12pm ET
Miami Dolphins TE Julius Thomas is expected to be released this offseason.
Huddle Up: Thomas was able to play in 14 games this season and finished with 388 yards and three touchdowns. He could find another starting job if becomes a free agent this offseason but would not be more than a No. 2 fantasy tight end.
Jarvis Landry - WRPosted 1/25/18 11:31am ET
Miami Dolphins impending free-agent WR Jarvis Landry said contract negotiations are moving along, but slowly. Landry said he's not worried about the negotiation process and will let it take care of itself, adding that he would love to stay with the Dolphins.
Huddle Up: Landry is headed for a big payday either way and could be one of the top 5-10 paid wide receivers in the NFL when all is said and done. The reliable pass-catcher will be a solid PPR WR1 candidate wherever he suits up.
Jarvis Landry - WRPosted 1/24/18 7:03am ET
Miami Dolphins impending free-agent WR Jarvis Landry could strike renewed interest from the Baltimore Ravens, who inquired about his availability last offseason.
Huddle Up: Landry posted career highs with 112 receptions and nine touchdowns but a career-low 8.8 yards per catch as he had just 987 receiving yards. Landry should be a WR2 in next year's drafts regardless of the jersey he dons.
Jarvis Landry - WRPosted 1/24/18 12:00pm ET
Miami Dolphins impending free-agent WR Jarvis Landry is set to hit the free-agent market this offseason. The Miami Herald's Armando Salguero pointed out that the Dolphins have not once said they would like to re-sign Landry. Last year Miami repeatedly declared they wanted to bring back WR Kenny Stills when he was a free agent.
Huddle Up: Not much should be read into this, but Landry is one of the top free-agent wide receivers on the market and the Dolphins' most consistent pass-catcher by a wide margin. No matter where he plays in 2018, Landry has WR1 upside with more value in PPR leagues.
Jarvis Landry - WRPosted 1/24/18 12:53pm ET
Miami Dolphins WR Jarvis Landry has a better chance of being re-signed if his asking price is around $11-12 million per year. If the asking price is more around $14-15 million then he could very well be on a different team next season, in the opinion of The Miami Herald's Armando Salguero.
Huddle Up: The latter price range would make Landry one of the top 5-7 paid wide receivers in the NFL. In a relatively shallow wide receiver market Landry will be offered a significant chunk of dough. Either way, He's a PPR WR1 candidate again this year, as mentioned earlier.
Jarvis Landry - WRPosted 1/17/18 8:26am ET
Miami Dolphins impending free-agent WR Jarvis Landry is believed to be seeking a contract similar to the one Green Bay Packers WR Davante Adams received. Adams signed a four-year, $58 million deal with $32 million guaranteed.
Huddle Up: Landry was really underrated this season and was overshadowed by DeVante Parker's potential breakout that never came. Landry posted career highs with 112 receptions and nine touchdowns but a career-low 8.8 yards per catch as he had just 987 receiving yards. Landry should be a WR2 in next year's drafts.
Jarvis Landry - WRPosted 1/17/18 8:51pm ET
Updating a previous report, Miami Dolphins WR Jarvis Landry does not plan on taking any sort of hometown discount, according to his agent, Damarius Bilbo. 'Absolutely not,' said Bilbo when asked about the issue. 'This may be Jarvis' first and last time to set himself up and his family up. He needs to strike and strike while the iron is hot.' Bilbo also mentioned that he is waiting on the Dolphins to respond to his contract proposal.
Huddle Up: Landry is looking to garner big money, and rightfully so after yet another productive season in his fourth year with the Dolphins. Although he finished short of the 1,000-yard plateau for the first time since his rookie campaign, Landry did manage to record career bests with 112 receptions and nine touchdowns. He also continued his iron man streak, having played in all 64 games since being drafted. The 25-year-old will enter next year as a WR2 with a high ceiling.
Kenny Stills - WRPosted 1/5/18 6:52pm ET
Miami Dolphins WR Kenny Stills (finger) said he played most of the 2017 season with a torn finger tendon on his right hand. The injury is not expected to require surgery.
Huddle Up: Stills has big-play ability, and he finished the year with 847 yards and six scores despite the injury. He tends to be a boom-or-bust fantasy play from one week to the next, but that could change if Jarvis Landry signs elsewhere in the offseason.
Damien Williams - RBPosted 1/5/18 7:08pm ET
Miami Dolphins RB Damien Williams will be an unrestricted free agent this offseason, but he said he wants to remain with Miami. 'I'm confident this is where I want to be,' Williams said. 'They understand that.'
Huddle Up: Williams suffered a shoulder injury late in the year, allowing Kenyan Drake to grab the reins in the Miami backfield. If Williams is back with the Dolphins in 2018, he will likely open the year as the No. 2 option behind Drake.
Jay Cutler - QBPosted 1/3/18 10:48pm ET
Miami Dolphins QB Jay Cutler is not expected to be back with the team in 2018, according to head coach Adam Gase.
Huddle Up: Assuming Ryan Tannehill will be fully recovered it's no surprise that Cutler would move on; whether that's to another club or the broadcast booth is less clear. Given his uneven performance in South Beach, however, Cutler is unlikely to resonate with fantasy owners no matter where he ends up.
Jay Cutler - QBPosted 12/30/17 7:54am ET
Miami Dolphins QB David Fales could get some playing time in Week 17's game against the Buffalo Bills, although QB Jay Cutler will start the game, according to multiple sources.
Huddle Up: The 27-year-old Fales received first-team repetitions in practice during the week and the Dolphins would like to give him playing time in the regular-season finale to determine if he would make a viable backup quarterback option for Ryan Tannehill in 2018. However, Gase still wants to win the game, so Fales might not see the field if the contest remains close. Cutler should be viewed as a low-end QB2 for Week 17, while Fales does not have any fantasy value.
Jarvis Landry - WRPosted 12/28/17 10:51am ET
Miami Dolphins impending free-agent WR Jarvis Landry said he is encouraged by negotiations regarding a new contract and wants to remain in Miami. He added, however, that he wants what he deserves as far as a contract is concerned.
Huddle Up: Landry is already one of the best wide receivers in franchise history. He's posted a career-high eight touchdowns this season to go along with 103 catches. He'll be a low-end PPR1 to high-end PPR2 target wherever he's playing next year.
DeVante Parker - WRPosted 12/28/17 12:55pm ET
Miami Dolphins WR DeVante Parker (ankle) fully participated in practice Thursday, Dec. 28.
Huddle Up: Parker should be active for the Week 17 game as long as he does not suffer a setback in the next few days. He has been a big part of the passing game over the last several games and can be a No. 3 receiver for owners this week.
Damien Williams - RBPosted 12/28/17 12:50pm ET
Miami Dolphins RB Damien Williams (shoulder) was limited during practice Thursday, Dec. 28.
Huddle Up: Williams has a chance to be active for Week 17 but probably would serve as the No. 2 running back and see limited touches. Owners in all leagues should avoid him even if he plays.
Damien Williams - RBPosted 12/27/17 3:54pm ET
Miami Dolphins RB Damien Williams (shoulder) was limited during practice Wednesday, Dec. 27.
Huddle Up: Williams appears to have a chance to play in Week 17 but would only see limited touches since Kenyan Drake has taken over as the starter. He should be avoided in all fantasy leagues.
DeVante Parker - WRPosted 12/27/17 3:58pm ET
Miami Dolphins WR DeVante Parker (ankle) was limited during practice Wednesday, Dec. 27.
Huddle Up: Parker probably is on track to play in Week 17 despite the injury, but owners can keep an eye on the situation to make sure. He has been targeted 28 times over the last three games and should have a solid role against the Buffalo Bills. Owners can consider Parker as a No. 3 fantasy receiver this week.
Jay Cutler - QBPosted 12/27/17 6:06pm ET
Miami Dolphins QB Jay Cutler said he is open to playing again in 2018 but will only continue his playing career if he is a starting quarterback.
Huddle Up: Cutler has thrown for 2,660 yards so far this season with 19 touchdowns and 14 interceptions. He could receive some interest from teams looking for a starting quarterback this offseason, but he would not be more than a No. 2 fantasy quarterback.
DeVante Parker - WRPosted 12/24/17 5:59am ET
Miami Dolphins WR DeVante Parker (ankle) is expected to play in Week 16's game against the Kansas City Chiefs.
Huddle Up: Parker was listed as questionable on the injury report but was a full practice participant Friday, Dec. 22. He had six receptions for 89 yards last week against the Buffalo Bills and should be viewed as a solid WR3 option in all fantasy formats.
DeVante Parker - WRPosted 12/24/17 9:23am ET
Miami Dolphins RB DeVante Parker (ankle) is officially active for the team's Week 16 game.
Huddle Up: Parker is coming off a terrific Week 15 game and should have a solid role in the passing game against the Kansas City Chiefs. He can be considered a No. 3 receiver in most fantasy leagues this week.
Jarvis Landry - WRPosted 12/24/17 5:39pm ET
Miami Dolphins WR Jarvis Landry finished with five receptions for 51 yards on seven targets in Week 16 against the Kansas City.
Huddle Up: Landry continues to be a PPR dream, posting at least five receptions in each of his 15 games so far this season, totaling 103 catches overall.
Kenny Stills - WRPosted 12/24/17 5:38pm ET
Miami Dolphins WR Kenny Stills was good for four receptions for 54 yards on six targets in Week 16 against the Kansas City Chiefs.
Huddle Up: Stills has posted just 80 yards on seven grabs over the past three games and he lost a fumble in this outing. It's not good news for Stills, who appears to unofficially have been passed by Jakeem Grant on the depth chart down the stretch.
DeVante Parker - WRPosted 12/24/17 5:37pm ET
Miami Dolphins WR DeVante Parker posted five receptions for 63 yards on 10 targets in Week 16 against the Kansas City Chiefs on a game-high 10 targets.
Huddle Up: Parker has all the potential in the world but his only issue during the early days of his career has been staying healthy and on the field.
Jakeem Grant - WRPosted 12/24/17 5:36pm ET
Miami Dolphins WR Jakeem Grant posted four receptions for 107 yards and a touchdown on six targets in Week 16 against the Kansas City Chiefs.
Huddle Up: Everyone talks about Jarvis Landry, Kenny Stills and DeVante Parker, but Grant has made a name for himself with two scores over the past three games. He is a player to watch heading into 2018 if you're looking for a fantasy sleeper.
Kenyan Drake - RBPosted 12/24/17 5:36pm ET
Miami Dolphins RB Kenyan Drake rushed 13 times for 57 yards in Week 16 against the Kansas City Chiefs and he did not have a catch on three targets.
Huddle Up: Drake is wrapping up the season as the team's bellcow, but he isn't doing a lot with his opportunity. It's uncertain if the team has seen enough from Drake to rely on him as the top ball carrier heading into 2017.
