Jarvis Landry - WRPosted 8/28/15 6:09pm ET
Miami Dolphins WR Jarvis Landry could produce a lot in the red zone this season, in the opinion of ESPN.com's James Walker. Walker cited Landry's precise route-running, good hands and his trust of QB Ryan Tannehill as reasons for why Landry should do well in that area this season.
Huddle Up: With 84 receptions last season, Landry finished second among all rookie wideouts, but the big plays were lacking as he averaged only nine yards per catch and snared five TD passes. With Landry being one of Tannehill's few returning weapons, though, it wouldn't be surprising if both those numbers saw upticks.
DeVante Parker - WRPosted 8/25/15 11:29pm ET
Miami Dolphins rookie WR DeVante Parker has not begun cutting on his injured foot yet. Parker is not practicing yet, either, but has been running hard.
Huddle Up: The first-round pick was removed from the PUP list last week but clearly isn't yet ready for game action. The Dolphins are maintaining their hope that he'll be ready for the Sept. 13 season opener, but that's looking more questionable by the day with a little more than two weeks remaining.
DeVante Parker - WRPosted 8/19/15 9:55am ET
Miami Dolphins WR DeVante Parker (foot) was activated from the Physically Unable to Perform list but is not practicing Wednesday, Aug. 19.
Huddle Up: Good that Parker is off the PUP, not good that he has yet to rejoin his teammates. He's missed out on valuable reps with Ryan Tannehill and the Miami offense, so once he does return to practice he'll have some catching up to do to make a fantasy impact.
Ryan Tannehill - QBPosted 8/19/15 9:55am ET
Miami Dolphins WR Jarvis Landry is considered the 'go-to receiver' for QB Ryan Tannehill, according to beat writer Armando Salguero.
Huddle Up: Landry was a high-volume target last year, so this won't be anything new for either pitcher and catcher. And with Mike Wallace gone, Landry can step into the red zone role as well to further enhance his fantasy prospects.
Louis Delmas - SPosted 8/19/15 1:22pm ET
Miami Dolphins FS Louis Delmas (knee) has been diagnosed with a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee. Delmas went down in practice Wednesday, Aug. 19 and was coming off of surgery on the same knee
Huddle Up: The star-crossed Delmas, who had 60 total tackles and an interception last season in 12 starts, only has played one full season (2013) in his six NFL campaigns and the Dolphins now will have to dig deeper on their FS depth chart.
Kenny Stills - WRPosted 8/17/15 9:53am ET
Miami Dolphins WR Kenny Stills (calf) returned to practice Monday, Aug. 17.
Huddle Up: Stills needs to get on the field to carve out a spot in a suddenly crowded Dolphins' receiver rotation, so his return from injury is a positive development for his fantasy value.
DeVante Parker - WRPosted 8/17/15 3:04pm ET
Miami Dolphins WR DeVante Parker (foot) was able to do some light jogging during practice Monday, Aug. 17. Head coach Joe Philbin said he is optimistic about the possibility of Parker playing in a preseason game.
Huddle Up: Parker was expected to miss the entire preseason, so the fact that Joe Philbin said he may play is a good sign. The Dolphins are hoping to have Parker back by Week 1 but his fantasy impact could be limited early in the year after missing most of training camp.
Kenny Stills - WRPosted 8/17/15 10:43pm ET
Miami Dolphins WR Kenny Stills (calf) returned to practice Monday, Aug. 17, and he finished practice with several acrobatic receptions.
Huddle Up: Stills, who paced the Saints with 931 receiving yards last season, is expected to replace Mike Wallace as the Dolphins' new downfield threat and currently owns a late-round ADP of 130 -- third among Miami wideouts.
Lamar Miller - RBPosted 8/14/15 9:32am ET
Miami Dolphins RB Lamar Miller ran for 32 yards on three carries in a preseason game against the Chicago Bears Thursday, Aug. 13.
Huddle Up: Miller flashed a taste of what he hopes to bring to the table full-time for the Dolphins as he plays out his contract year.
Jay Ajayi - RBPosted 8/13/15 9:59pm ET
Miami Dolphins rookie RB Jay Ajayi (hamstring) did not play in Miami's preseason opener Thursday, Aug. 13.
Huddle Up: A definite missed opportunity for the fifth-round pick who has fallen to fourth on the Fins' RB depth chart. He definitely has some ground to make up when he's able to get back on the field.
Damien Williams - RBPosted 8/12/15 2:31pm ET
Miami Dolphins RB Damien Williams is listed as the second-string running back on the team's first depth chart. RB LaMichael James is third, and RB Jay Ajayi is fourth on the chart.
Huddle Up: Williams compiled 309 yards from scrimmage on 36 rushes and 21 receptions last season, but he doesn't exactly inspire much confidence as a fantasy handcuff. Ajayi, the team's fifth-round pick, still is expected to wind up in this spot come the regular season, but the bottom line out of all this is that Lamar Miller is firmly entrenched as the No. 1 back.
Jay Ajayi - RBPosted 8/9/15 4:39pm ET
Miami Dolphins RB Jay Ajayi (hamstring) is not participating in practice Sunday, Aug. 9.
Huddle Up: The fifth-round pick, expected by many to push for a healthy share of carries, has had a disappointing camp so far, further cementing Lamar Miller's clear lead-back status.
DeVante Parker - WRPosted 8/8/15 10:36am ET
Miami Dolphins WR DeVante Parker (foot) said he is not sure if he will be able to play in any of the preseason games because of his foot injury. Parker said he does not know if he will be allowed to play in Week 1 if he misses the entire preseason.
Huddle Up: Parker is hoping to play in Week 1 against the Redskins. If he's healthy, expect him to see some snaps but not enough to make him a viable fantasy option.
Lamar Miller - RBPosted 8/7/15 9:15pm ET
Miami Dolphins RB Lamar Miller said he hopes to receive more carries this season and did add 15 pounds of muscle this offseason to prepare for the season.
Huddle Up: Miller closed 2014 strong and he's in line for the best season of his career. There's very little behind Miller in Miami. Some are worried about rookie Jay Ajayi but he's not even guaranteed to win the No. 2 job. Miller is a great value pick at the end of Round 3.
Ryan Tannehill - QBPosted 8/6/15 11:06am ET
Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill has connected on a lot of deep passes in the first week of training camp. Beat writer Barry Jackson tweeted that he has never seen Tannehill as consistent with his deep ball before.
Huddle Up: Tannehill's lack of/inability to throw the deep ball has been one of the biggest knocks against him. However, this offseason the Dolphins loaded up his receiving corps with speed, and if the improving Miami offensive line provides time Tannehill could put those criticisms in the rear view mirror and put up some gaudy fantasy numbers in the process.
Kenny Stills - WRPosted 8/6/15 2:27pm ET
Miami Dolphins WR Kenny Stills (calf) is out of practice Thursday, Aug. 6.
Huddle Up: The Dolphins have been anxious to get their newly acquired deep threat acclimated to the new offense, but Thursday's absence was the former Saint's fourth straight missed practice.
Kenny Stills - WRPosted 8/5/15 10:22am ET
Miami Dolphins WR Kenny Stills (calf) returned to practice Wednesday, Aug. 5.
Huddle Up: Stills hopes to carve out looks in a crowded Miami receiving corps. At least he's back on the field, which gives him a leg up on rookie DeVante Parker.
LaMichael James - RBPosted 8/5/15 10:22am ET
Miami Dolphins RB LaMichael James is working as the third-down back Wednesday, Aug. 5, and appears to be pushing RB Damien Williams for the role.
Huddle Up: James is filling the role Miami had hoped rookie Jay Ajayi could claim, but thus far in camp Ajayi has struggled. It's also worth noting that if James is on the field on third downs it will cut into any PPR value Lamar Miller once had.
Jarvis Landry - WRPosted 8/5/15 3:29pm ET
Miami Dolphins WR Jarvis Landry has a chance to become a deep threat for the team this season, according to head coach Joe Philbin. 'I think he's got a chance to do that,' Philbin said. 'He's lined up in a variety of spots. He's done some things outside. I think his natural home base is still inside, but he certainly has shown the ability. He's a real quality route runner. He can run different routes that you want on the outside. The beauty of him is he doesn't slow down when he's coming out of cuts. So if he can get on top of the DB (defensive back), he doesn't waste any time whatsoever. That's really, to me, is what makes him effective.'
Huddle Up: Landry, a second-round pick last season, finished second among the stacked 2014 rookie WR class with 84 receptions but finished sixth in yards with 758 thanks to a 9.02 yards-per-catch average as he stuck mainly to underneath routes. Expanding his route tree would certainly expand his fantasy value.
DeVante Parker - WRPosted 8/4/15 2:40pm ET
Miami Dolphins WR DeVante Parker (foot) is still three to four weeks away from being able to practice. He'll need to do jogging, running and conditioning before beginning light practices.
Huddle Up: As feared, the rookie's recovery from foot surgery is threatening to linger far into the preseason -- and likely beyond -- and his draft stock should continue to fall as a result, particularly in re-draft leagues.
Jay Ajayi - RBPosted 8/4/15 9:36pm ET
Miami Dolphins RB Jay Ajayi fumbled in practice Tuesday, Aug. 4, and has been a bit of a disappointment in camp, in the opinion of beat writer Adam Beasley.
Huddle Up: The fifth-round pick is being counted on to win the No. 2 job and spell starter Lamar Miller, but 2014 undrafted rookie Damien Williams or ex-49er LaMichael James might assume that role if the rookie can't show he's ready.
Ryan Tannehill - QBPosted 7/31/15 10:30am ET
Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill has looked sharp so far in training camp, according to Chris Perkins, of the Sun-Sentinel. Tannehill's accuracy has improved, which is an indication of enhanced footwork.
Huddle Up: Expectations continue to grow for Tannehill, as the Dolphins have surrounded him with dynamic receivers and are putting together a solid offensive line in front of him to give him time to throw. Positive reports on Tannehill only help his fantasy stock, as well as those of Jarvis Landry, Jordan Cameron, and the rest of the Phins' fantasy prospects.
Jay Ajayi - RBPosted 7/31/15 2:40pm ET
Miami Dolphins RB Jay Ajayi left practice Friday, July 31, with an apparent right shoulder injury.
Huddle Up: No immediate word on the severity of the injury, but it's not the way the fifth-round pick -- who already slipped in the draft because of health concerns -- wanted to hit the ground running in South Beach. Many have penciled him in as the No. 2 RB and possible goal-line back behind starter Lamar Miller, but let's see about this shoulder issue first and then go from there.
DeVante Parker - WRPosted 7/30/15 11:01pm ET
Miami Dolphins WR DeVante Parker (foot) has no timetable for his return from the Physically Unable to Perform list, according to head coach Joe Philbin on Thursday, July 30.
Huddle Up: The first-round pick just had foot surgery -- his second within the last year -- and the last thing the Dolphins are going to do is rush him back and risk a re-aggravation. That could mean that many fantasy GMs will have to draft Parker without seeing him suit up in as much as an intrasquad scrimmage. Still, there's some value to be had as he currently owns an ADP of 79 -- ranking 32nd among all WRs.
Lamar Miller - RBPosted 7/29/15 8:50am ET
The Miami Dolphins and RB Lamar Miller have had preliminary talks about a contract extention, but there have been no in-depth negotiations. Miller is a year away from unrestricted free agents, and the team is uncertain if they will be able to retain him.
Huddle Up: The Dolphins may be waiting to see what they have in Jay Ajayi before committing long-term to Miller, or they may just want to see what Miller brings to the table this season. Either way he's the incumbent, and there's a contract carrot dangling in front of him this season.
DeVante Parker - WRPosted 7/29/15 2:31pm ET
Miami Dolphins WR DeVante Parker (foot) was placed on the Active/Physically Unable to Perform list Wednesday, July 29.
Huddle Up: The first-round pick, who underwent foot surgery in June, can still be activated off the list at any time so there's still plenty of time for the rookie to get on the field and ready for the start of the games that count. His camp progress will be closely monitored.
Lamar Miller - RBPosted 7/28/15 11:19pm ET
Miami Dolphins RB Lamar Miller may see an increase in carries in 2015, according to head coach Joe Philbin. 'If he's cranking and he got it 24 times a game and he's healthy and he's fast and he's explosive, it doesn't both me one bit,' Philbin said.
Huddle Up: Miller had a career-high 254 touches last season, including 216 rushes. Miami did draft Jay Ajayi in the fifth round, but as long as he's not showing any signs of wear and tear, it'll be Miller's show in South Beach and he ranks as a solid RB2 fantasy prospect.
Dion Sims - TEPosted 7/25/15 10:00pm ET
Miami Dolphins TE Dion Sims' improvement could make it possible for the Dolphins to use more two-tight end sets with fewer wide receivers on the field, according to head coach Joe Philbin. '
Huddle Up: With Sims and Jordan Cameron getting snaps it reduces the opportunity for Miami's secondary receivers; that means DeVante Parker needs to earn a starting gig to live up to his draft position, while Jarvis Landry, Kenny Stills and Greg Jennings are apparently battling for two spots.
DeVante Parker - WRPosted 7/25/15 10:00pm ET
Miami Dolphins WR DeVante Parker (foot) will not be ready for the start of training camp and could be placed on the Physically Unable to Perform list. Head coach Joe Philbin believes Parker will be ready for the start of the regular season.
Huddle Up: Parker missed time during his final collegiate season due to a foot injury, but the Dolphins remain optimistic he'll be good to go for the opener. However, with Jarvis Landry, Kenny Stills and Greg Jennings on the roster Parker will be battling for snaps once he returns.
Josh Freeman - QBPosted 7/24/15 5:57pm ET
Miami Dolphins QB Josh Freeman was released by the team Friday, July 24.
Huddle Up: Freeman, a 2009 first-round selection of the Bucs, had solid seasons in both 2010 (3,451 yards, 25 TDs, 6 INTs) and 2012 (4,065, 27 TDs, 17 INTs) but only has started four games since and now is starting anew after being released by his third team in as many years.
