The Miami Dolphins could face wintry weather in their Week 14 game against the Pittsburgh Steelers Sunday, Dec. 8. The forecast currently calls for a wintry mix with temperatures in the low 30's with an east wind around 10 mph. 'Snow is probably last because it's really not as wet or causes as many problems,' WR Brian Hartline said Tuesday, Dec. 3. 'Wind can be a pain in the butt because ball location changes really quickly. Rain, it depends because if it's soaking wet, it's maybe not as bad because you can adjust.'
Huddle Up: Hartline is coming off his best fantasy game (9-127-1 TD) but chances are he'll slip back to the pack given the weather forecast and the Steelers' success against opposing WRs (12th fewest fantasy points allowed) and QBs (8th fewest).

Miami Dolphins WR Brian Hartline (calf), DE Jared Odrick (groin) and DE Olivier Vernon (groin) are expected to play Friday in the second preseason game. All three players did not play in the team's first preseason game.
Huddle Up: Hartline, the Fins' leading receiver last year at 74-1,083 doesn't need the extra reps, but his on-field presence sure aids in the continuing development of second-year QB Ryan Tannehill.

The Miami Dolphins re-signed WR Brian Hartline to a five-year, $30.775 million deal that includes $12.5 million guaranteed.
Huddle Up: The Dolphins are hoping that Harline winds up being a very well-compensated WR2, as they would like to sign Mike Wallace in free agency and/or pursue a wideout with an early pick in the upcoming draft. Hartline was an inconsistent fantasy contributor, and if he winds up as the second option in Miami the peaks will likely become fewer and farther between.

The Miami Dolphins are close to re-signing WR Brian Hartline to a multiyear deal worth between $6 million and $6.5 million per season.
Huddle Up: Even if Miami does retain Hartline, the Dolphins are still expected to pursue a big-name, No. 1 wideout in free agency.

Drew Rosenhaus, agent for Miami Dolphins impending free-agent WR Brian Hartline, said Hartline wants to re-sign with the team this offseason but the two sides are not close to an agreement at this point.
Huddle Up: Hartline, who led the Fins in receiving with 74 catches for 1,083 yards, may find himself the odd-man out in South Beach with the Dolphins expected to pursue a big-name free-agent wideout (Greg Jennings?) this offseason, leaving him free to test the open market.

Impending free-agent WR Brian Hartline (Dolphins) will likely be looking for $5-6 million per year on the open market if he gets there when free agency opens in March. It's uncertain if the Miami Dolphins will be able to retain him at that price, or if they have any interest in doing so.
Huddle Up: In a status-quo situation, Hartiline likely would be OK, but it's expected to be anything but in South Beach this offseason with the Dolphins expected to aggressively pursue a top-level free-agent wideout.

Miami Dolphins WR Brian Hartline (back) practiced in full Thursday, Dec. 27.
Huddle Up: With fellow wideout Davone Bess (back) expected to miss a third straight game, Hartline will be the Fins' go-to receiver again, but he hasn't done much the past 2 weeks with 7 catches for 89 yards.

Miami Dolphins WR Brian Hartline (back) was limited during practice Friday, Dec. 21, and is listed as questionable for Week 16.
Huddle Up: With fellow wideout Davone Bess already ruled out, the effectiveness of the Dolphins' passing game -- and Ryan Tannehill's fantasy value -- might hinge on Hartline's health. It was at least a good sign that Hartline was on the practice field Friday after sitting out Thursday, but fantasy owners are likely going to need to check The Huddle's Game Day Inactives, Injuries and Weather report prior to kickoff Sunday morning.

Miami Dolphins RB Marcus Thigpen expects WR Brian Hartline (back) to play in Week 16.
