  News Statistics Roster  
Brandon Gibson - WR Posted 4/19/14 10:12pm et
Miami Dolphins WR Brandon Gibson (knee) said he expects to be ready to go for Week 1 of the NFL season.
Huddle Up: Gibson was an under-the-radar fantasy contributor when healthy last season, so if he's good to go for the start of the season he's a guy who can be looked to for spot start/bye week duty.

Dion Jordan - DE Posted 4/15/14 10:19pm et
Miami Dolphins general manager Dennis Hickey is expecting big things from DE Dion Jordan in his second season this year. "He's a very talented player, and this is a big offseason for him," Hickey said. "Last year with his shoulder he didn't have an opportunity to have a full offseason. That's so important. Developing and getting your body -- not just the physical reps but the mental reps -- getting in the weight room and all those things is such an important part to get these guys ready to make that jump."
Huddle Up: The third-overall pick had to deal with a preseason shoulder injury and never found a groove, recording only 2 sacks and accounting for 26 total tackles as a rookie. From there, the only place to go is up.

Damian Williams - WR Posted 4/10/14 11:11pm et
The Miami Dolphins have signed free-agent WR Damian Williams (Titans) to a one-year deal worth $800,000.
Huddle Up: Williams, a 2010 3rd-round pick of the Titans, has seen his numbers steadily decrease since his 45-592-5 season in 2011, and will be battling for targets with backups Brandon Gibson and Armon Binns behind base starters Mike Wallace and Brian Hartline.

Dion Jordan - DE Posted 4/10/14 11:11pm et
The Philadelphia Eagles reportedly made a play to trade for Miami Dolphins DE Dion Jordan roughly two months ago, according to a respected league source. The Eagles are believed to have offered a second-round pick and LB Brandon Graham for Jordan. The Eagles would have picked up the remainder of Jordan's 4-year, $20.572 million deal.
Huddle Up: No surprise that Chip Kelly has tried to deal for his former Oregon standout, but the Dolphins obviously want to give the 2013 third-overall pick a chance to flourish after his disappointing 2-sack, 24 total-tackle rookie-year showing.

Mike Wallace - WR Posted 4/2/14 1:10am et
The Miami Dolphins, privately, have vehemently denied a report that they are shopping WR Mike Wallace. Meanwhile, Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill has been throwing to receivers for more than two weeks, but Wallace has been out of town. Wallace has said previously that at some point this offseason, he and Tannehill need to work on their deep-ball chemistry.
Huddle Up: Wallace did hit a career high in receptions with 73 last season, but his yards-per-catch average (12.7) and TD total (5) were career lows. Look for those latter numbers to rebound, especially if Tannehill is afforded more time to throw deep after being sacked an NFL-high 58 times in 2013 -- 10 times more than any other QB.

Mike Rios - WR Posted 4/2/14 5:45pm et
The Miami Dolphins signed WR Mike Rios (Cardinals) Wednesday, April 2. Terms of the contract were not disclosed.
Huddle Up: No reason to think Rios is anything more than a depth guy in Miami.

Knowshon Moreno - RB Posted 3/27/14 6:03pm et
The Miami Dolphins on Thursday, march 27 agreed to terms with RB Knowshon Moreno on a 1-year, $3 million contract.
Huddle Up: Moreno hit career highs with 1,586 yards scrimmage and 13 total TDs last season and now joins a suddenly crowded Miami backfield with Lamar Miller (879 total yards, 2 TDs) and Daniel Thomas (469, 2 TDs).

Brian Hartline - WR Posted 3/24/14 10:27pm et
Miami Dolphins WR Brian Hartline (knee) is making good progress in his recovery from a torn posterior cruciate ligament and should be ready to play Week 1.
Huddle Up: Hartline should return in plenty of time to have that one monster week when he's not even on a fantasy roster, then be a hot pickup and do almost nothing until getting kicked back into the free agent pool a month or so later.

Mike Pouncey - C Posted 2/16/14 6:38pm et
The Miami Dolphins could start the 2014 season with an entire new offensive line, in the opinion of of Miami Herald beat reporter Adam Beasley. Beasley believes OGs John Jerry and Richie Incognito will not return to the team, and C Mike Pouncey could be suspended for his role in the bullying scandal.
Huddle Up: We've probably only seen the tip of the iceberg in terms of the looming personnel changes in South Beach. Stay tuned . . .

Dustin Keller - TE Posted 2/9/14 4:32pm et
The Miami Dolphins are not expected to re-signing impending free-agent TE Dustin Keller (knee) because of the injury he is coming back from and that TE Charles Clay played well as the starting tight end this season.
Huddle Up: Keller didn't make it out of the preseason in his Miami debut, tearing an ACL, MCL and PCL and dislocating the knee in an exhibition against the Texans. He's come a long way in the 6 months since the injury, but it looks like he'll be starting over again in NFL terms.

Brandon Gibson - WR Posted 2/9/14 4:52pm et
Miami Dolphins WR Brandon Gibson (knee) could miss some of the team's offseason workouts but should be close to 100 percent by the time training camp begins.
Huddle Up: Don't forget about Gibson, who got off to a hot 2013 start and led the 'Fins with 29 receptions through the first 5 games. His healthy return gives Ryan Tannehill a solid trio of wideouts to throw to.

Mike Wallace - WR Posted 1/26/14 4:12pm et
Miami Dolphins WR Mike Wallace said he wants the offense to change to use the deep ball more in 2014. "We have to," Wallace said. "Definitely have got to get the deep ball going. That's the difference between winning and losing a couple games. I should have had 15 or 20 more touchdowns. And that's being modest. If you press me, you have no shot to cover me. Once I get you to stop your feet, it's over."
Huddle Up: Judge for yourself: Wallace finished 14th among NFL WRs with 138 targets in 2013, but caught only 73 passes. Moreover, only 7 of those receptions resulted in gains of 30 yards or more, and just 2 of 7 30-yard gains resulted in TDs.

Jeff Ireland - GM Posted 1/7/14 11:08pm et
The Miami Dolphins and general manager Jeff Ireland have agreed to part ways Tuesday, Jan. 7.
Huddle Up: Ireland has helped bring a lot of talent to South Beach, but the reported in-fighting between the GM and the coaching staff only served to sabotage the team's progress, and a change was probably the best option for both parties.

Brian Hartline - WR Posted 12/30/13 12:45am et
Miami Dolphins WR Brian Hartline (knee) suffered a knee injury in the Week 17 game against the New York Jets, and he will have an MRI Monday, Dec. 30, to determine the severity of his injury.
Huddle Up: A major injury at this time of year could be a huge blow for Miami, at least to start the 2014 season. If you were thinking of keeping him for a cheap draft pick, you might want to wait and see the results of his MRI.

Ryan Tannehill - QB Posted 12/27/13 10:20pm et
Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill (knee) fully participated in practice Friday, Dec. 27, and is listed as probable for Week 17.
Huddle Up: Tannehill, who left Miami's Week 16 game in the fourth quarter, has practiced in full each of the past 2 days and will start against the Jets. The Dolphins and his fantasy owners, meanwhile, are hoping for better protection after the Bills racked up 7 sacks in a 19-0 Week 16 win.

Ryan Tannehill - QB Posted 12/24/13 5:57pm et
Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill (knee) was practicing with the team Tuesday, Dec. 24, after injuring his knee in the fourth quarter of the team's Week 16 loss to the Buffalo Bills. He was wearing a sleeve on his left leg after being sacked seven times by the Bills.
Huddle Up: Tannehill was forced out of the Week 16 loss in Buffalo, but early indications are that it won't carry over into Week 17. Still, follow Miami practice reports to be sure.

Ryan Tannehill - QB Posted 12/23/13 12:49am et
Updating a previous report, Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill (knee) left the Week 16 game against the Buffalo Bills due to a knee injury. While the team feels the injury is minor, Tannehill will undergo an MRI Monday, Dec. 23.
Huddle Up: Tannehill had a nice game against the Jets last time out. He should be fine, but keep an eye on him this week.

Daniel Thomas - RB Posted 12/17/13 10:24pm et
Miami Dolphins RB Daniel Thomas (ankle) worked off to the side during practice Tuesday, Dec. 17.
Huddle Up: Thomas, who followed up his 109-yard, 1-TD Week 14 effort with only 18 total yards and a receiving TD Sunday, is still not over the ankle issue and will be extremely tough to depend on, especially now that the fantasy stakes are higher.

Lamar Miller - RB Posted 12/16/13 11:05pm et
Miami Dolphins RB Lamar Miller was on the field for 38 offensive snaps in the Week 15 game against the New England Patriots, while RB Daniel Thomas saw only 18 snaps.
Huddle Up: That's did little to help Miller's fantasy owners Sunday as Thomas still found the end zone for the 2nd straight week negating Miller's 61-18 total-yardage advantage. Weigh your options very carefully before starting either back, even with this week's favorable matchup against the Bills.

Lamar Miller - RB Posted 12/13/13 8:11pm et
Miami Dolphins RB Lamar Miller (concussion) fully participated in practice Friday, Dec. 13, and is listed as probable for Week 15.
Huddle Up: Miller and Daniel Thomas will split carries a Patriots' defense allowing 136 yards a game on the ground. However, both are risky flex plays because it's hard to know which one will get the majority of touches on a weekly basis.

Lamar Miller - RB Posted 12/11/13 11:17pm et
Miami Dolphins RB Lamar Miller (concussion) was listed as a full participant in practice Wednesday, Dec. 11.
Huddle Up: Miller is on track to play Sunday against a Patriots' rush defense allowing 136 yards a game. He'll split carries with Daniel Thomas though, making Miller a risky flex play this week.

Lamar Miller - RB Posted 12/10/13 2:03pm et
Miami Dolphins RB Lamar Miller (concussion) is participating in practice Tuesday, Dec. 10.
Huddle Up: Presumably, Miller's participation was limited, but it's nonetheless a huge first step in his bid to play this Sunday in Week 15. If you own Miller, of course you're going to have to see how the rest of the practice week plays out before making any lineup decisions.

Daniel Thomas - RB Posted 12/8/13 10:45pm et
Miami Dolphins RB Lamar Miller (concussion) suffered a concussion in the Week 14 game against the Pittsburgh Steelers. RB Daniel Thomas came on and posted 105 rushing yards and a touchdown on 16 carries.
Huddle Up: It seemed like Thomas might be out for a while, but he came back and had an excellent game after Miller exited with a concussion. He might well be worth an add if Miller is going to miss any time.

Daniel Thomas - RB Posted 12/7/13 12:23pm et
Miami Dolphins RB Daniel Thomas (ankle) is not expected to play in the team's Week 14 game. He is listed as questionable for the game.
Huddle Up: Lamar Miller got 22 carries last week with Thomas out, so expect him to be the feature back again on Sunday. Miller has a tough matchup against the Steelers but he's a strong flex play for fantasy playoffs with Thomas no longer in the mix for carries.

Brian Hartline - WR Posted 12/4/13 12:52am et
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).

Daniel Thomas - RB Posted 12/3/13 9:10pm et
Miami Dolphins RB Daniel Thomas (ankle) was at practice and riding a bike on the side while the team worked out Tuesday, Dec. 3.
Huddle Up: Thomas also is reportedly walking without a limp, but it remains likely that he'll miss a second straight game Sunday in Pittsburgh.

Daniel Thomas - RB Posted 11/29/13 5:13pm et
Miami Dolphins RB Daniel Thomas (ankle) did not practice Friday, Nov. 29, and has been ruled out for the team's Week 13 game.
Huddle Up: As expected, Thomas won't play Sunday against the Jets, paving the way for more touches for the severely struggling Lamar Miller.

Daniel Thomas - RB Posted 11/26/13 5:22pm et
Miami Dolphins RB Daniel Thomas (ankle) may not miss the rest of the season due to a high-ankle sprain. There were several reports indicating he would miss the remainder of the season, but he hopes to return in a few weeks.
Huddle Up: In the meantime, Thomas' absence should benefit the fantasy fortunes of fellow RB Lamar Miller, but Miller simply has been unstartable with a total of 27 rushing yards on 21 carries -- no, there's not a missing numeral -- over his last 3 games.

Daniel Thomas - RB Posted 11/25/13 1:09am et
Miami Dolphins RB Daniel Thomas (ankle) is questionable to return to Week 12's game against the Carolina Panthers after suffering a left ankle injury.
Huddle Up: It was a terrible matchup for the Dolphins run game, but this could be good news for Lamar Miller going forward.

Daniel Thomas - RB Posted 11/25/13 11:14am et
Miami Dolphins RB Daniel Thomas (ankle) was on crutches and in a walking boot after the Week 12 game.
Huddle Up: If Thomas can't go in Week 13 the bulk of the Dolphins' backfield work would go to Lamar Miller. You might also see Charles Clay get a couple short-yardage carries from the fullback position.
