Jarvis Landry - WRPosted 7/13/17 7:02pm ET
Miami Dolphins WR Jarvis Landry has not been offered a contract extension, but Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald believes that could change in the coming weeks.
Huddle Up: Landry is one of the best slot receivers in the game. He hasn't shown enough touchdown potential to be considered a WR1 yet, but he is a quality WR2 with more value in PPR formats.
Jarvis Landry - WRPosted 7/11/17 4:55pm ET
Miami Dolphins WR Jarvis Landry will not talk about a possible contract extension once the regular season commences. The potential extension is expected to be around $11 million per year. If an extension is not agreed upon by next offseason, then the Dolphins will have the option of placing the franchise tag on Landry.
Huddle Up: Landry is indubitably Miami's best, most consistent receiver and Ryan Tannehill's go-to guy. He has more value in PPR formats, but he's still a viable low-end WR1 to high-end WR2 in standard leagues.
Kenny Stills - WRPosted 7/9/17 6:10pm ET
Miami Dolphins WR Kenny Stills' nine receiving touchdowns last year were the sixth-most in the NFL, and Hal Habib of the Palm Beach Post believes Stills' success will continue this season and can be largely credited to head coach Adam Gase.
Huddle Up: Stills emerged as one of the better deep threats in the league, but it is important to keep in mind that he had just 42 catches all of last season. Draft him as a WR4, but he can be a touchdown-dependent WR3 against the right matchups.
Ryan Tannehill - QBPosted 7/2/17 7:28pm ET
Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill said this year's offense is the best he has been a part of. 'Honestly, I can say it's definitely the most talent we've had with the receiving corps, bringing everyone back, having a second year together in the same offense,' Tannehill said.
Huddle Up: Tannehill does have a bunch of weapons at his disposal, but it remains to be seen if it will lead to a breakout campaign. Grab him as an upside QB2. You could end up with a potential starter or valuable trade chip if he puts its all together.
Jay Ajayi - RBPosted 6/25/17 6:31pm ET
Miami Dolphins RB Jay Ajayi had the second best yards after contact percentage in the league last year, and he averaged 115.8 rushing yards per game over the final 12 games.
Huddle Up: Ajayi grabbed the starting job and didn't look back last season, and he enters 2017 as the clear lead back in Miami and a safe bet to provide RB1 production.
Jarvis Landry - WRPosted 6/20/17 9:03am ET
Miami Dolphins WR Jarvis Landry will not negotiate with the Dolphins regarding a contract extension after the start of the season, according to his agent, who added the receiver will not hold out training camp if the deal is not reached in the next few weeks.
Huddle Up: It's more than a bit surprising Miami hasn't already locked him up, but at least owners should be able to breathe easier regarding his status for the upcoming season. With no fewer than 84 catches in any of his first three seasons, he's a solid WR2 who only needs to find the end zone a bit more often in order to become a WR1.
Jarvis Landry - WRPosted 6/20/17 7:50pm ET
Miami Dolphins WR Jarvis Landry has secured 199 catches out of the slot over the last three seasons, more than any other receiver in the NFL over that time.
Huddle Up: Much of Landry's production out of the slot came in his first two seasons, but that doesn't diminish just how consistently he gets open regardless of where he lines up. The fourth-year wideout is a rock-solid WR2 in most leagues and only needs to find the end zone more often in order to become a WR1.
Jay Ajayi - RBPosted 6/18/17 8:04am ET
Miami Dolphins RB Jay Ajayi looks much smoother running routes and finishing receptions than he did last year, as catching the ball out of the backfield became a major focus during his offseason training. 'The questions that he brings up to us are very detailed. They're really beyond next-level questions. They're almost kind of quarterback-ish questions for a running back,' head coach Adam Gase said.
Huddle Up: Ajayi managed only 27 receptions for 151 yards and averaged only 5.6 yards per catch during his breakout 2016 season. Despite Miami's desire to get Kenyan Drake more involved in the passing game, the third-year back doesn't want to come off the field and is working toward that end. Ajayi is a rock-solid RB1 and only needs to carry his improvement as a receiver into the regular season in order to become an elite fantasy back.
Julius Thomas - TEPosted 6/18/17 8:23pm ET
Miami Dolphins TE Julius Thomas has been a non-factor in practices and appears to have chemistry issues with QB Ryan Tannehill, according to Omar Kelly of the Sun-Sentinel.
Huddle Up: The Dolphins are hoping that Thomas can be the weapon he was in Denver and not the bust he was in Jacksonville, but the early returns don't sound encouraging. You can stash him as a TE2 in case he returns to form, but don't count on him being a fantasy starter.
Jay Ajayi - RBPosted 6/13/17 10:07am ET
Miami Dolphins RB Jay Ajayi began working on his route running with QB Ryan Tannehill and the wide receivers in March.
Huddle Up: Ajayi is poised for a huge workload and isn't receiving the kind of fanfare most RB1's in fantasy garner. He's an option after the first few backs are off the board.
Jay Ajayi - RBPosted 6/13/17 3:04pm ET
Miami Dolphins RB Jay Ajayi is ready to receive more touches this season. 'I'll be ready to carry the ball however many times I have to,' Ajayi said. 'I feel like I'm a workhorse and I get better as the game keeps going and I continue to be a part of the game.' Head coach Adam Gase admitted that Ajayi is Miami's bell cow running back.
Huddle Up: Ajayi took the league by storm last season en route to over 1,300 total yards and eight touchdowns. As a featured running back -- a rarity in today's NFL -- Ajayi possesses RB1 appeal even after just one season of starting.
Kenny Stills - WRPosted 6/13/17 5:39pm ET
Miami Dolphins WR Kenny Stills (undisclosed) participated in practice Tuesday, June 13. Stills missed the last two organized team activities because of a minor injury.
Huddle Up: Stills should receive a solid amount of playing time in 2017 after posting 726 yards and nine touchdowns this past season. Owners in most leagues should consider Stills as a No. 3 or No. 4 receiver.
Jarvis Landry - WRPosted 6/13/17 5:45pm ET
Miami Dolphins WR Jarvis Landry reported for the start of minicamp Tuesday, June 13, even though he is looking for a new contract. Landry would like to sign an extension before the start of training camp.
Huddle Up: The Dolphins will have a little over a month to work something out with Landry, so owners should keep an eye on the situation. Landry ranked 10th in the NFL with 1,136 yards in 2016 and tied for seventh with 94 receptions. He is the main target in the passing game for Miami and should be low-end No. 1 of a No. 2 receiver in fantasy leagues.
Ryan Tannehill - QBPosted 6/13/17 6:02pm ET
Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill's accuracy has been really good during offseason workouts, according to head coach Adam Gase.
Huddle Up: Tannehill completed 67.1 percent of his passes in 2016, which was tied for sixth in the NFL. He struggled a bit with 12 interceptions but did finish with 19 touchdowns and 2,995 passing yards before suffering a season-ending injury. He will have plenty of weapons to work with in the offense and would be a fine No. 2 fantasy quarterback.
DeVante Parker - WRPosted 6/12/17 5:03pm ET
Miami Dolphins WR DeVante Parker has been making things look easy during offseason workouts and will be a big part of the offense in 2017, according to QB Matt Moore.
Huddle Up: Parker was able to play 15 games this past season but dealt with back and hamstring injuries during the season. He will have a solid role in the passing game in 2017 and should be considered a No. 3 receiver in leagues if he is healthy.
Jarvis Landry - WRPosted 6/8/17 2:55pm ET
Miami Dolphins WR Jarvis Landry must 'zero in' on the small details of the game that kept the Dolphins from 'clicking' last year, according to The Miami Herald's Adam Beasley. Head coach Adam Gase has been pleased with how consistent Landry has been practicing and doing the little things. 'When he's rolling he was today, you just keep trying to find ways to get him the ball,' Gase said.
Huddle Up: Little things or no little things, Landry has been a solid fantasy player during his first three professional seasons, averaging 96 catches for 1,017 yards and 4.3 touchdowns. Those numbers put him in prime low-end PPR WR1 territory.
Kenny Stills - WRPosted 6/7/17 11:51am ET
Miami Dolphins WR Kenny Stills (undisclosed) left practice early Wednesday, June 7, after suffering a minor injury, according to WR Leonte Carroo.
Huddle Up: Stills could miss a practice or two, but the injury is not considered serious. Stills will continue to be a top three receiver for the Dolphins in 2017 and can be considered a No. 3 or No. 4 receiver in all fantasy leagues.
Julius Thomas - TEPosted 6/7/17 11:52am ET
Miami Dolphins TE Julius Thomas has the chance to be a 10-touchdoown player if he can stay healthy, according to offensive coordinator Clyde Christensen.
Huddle Up: Thomas has played well when he is healthy, but the problem is that he has not played more than 14 games in any season since entering the NFL. He should have a solid role in the passing game this upcoming season and probably should be considered as a No. 2 fantasy tight end because of his injury history.
DeVante Parker - WRPosted 6/7/17 9:05pm ET
Miami Dolphins WR DeVante Parker is showing more consistency during organized team activities, according to offensive coordinator Clyde Christensen. 'He's run fast every day where last year it was kind of up and down,' Christensen said. 'One day you'd think you had a Hall of Famer and the next you weren't sure if he was going to make it to the game. Just his health and staying consistent. I think his routine and how fast he's played has been really, really different from last year.'
Huddle Up: Parker looks like a prime sleeper candidate despite Miami's tendency to be a run-first offense. The Dolphins are more loaded in their receiver corps than they've been in recent memory, which should open things up for the third-year wide-out. Parker progressed last season from his rookie campaign, registering 56 catches for 744 yards and four touchdowns, and he looks like a good bet to build on that.
Jarvis Landry - WRPosted 6/6/17 9:41am ET
Miami Dolphins WR Jarvis Landry is entering the final season of his four-year rookie contract, and the Miami Herald's Armando Salguero believes there is a 60 percent chance Landry will sign an extension prior to the start of the season.
Huddle Up: Landry has frustrated owners by scoring only 13 touchdowns over his first three seasons, but that is about the only thing lacking on his resume - real or fantasy. His yards per catch has increased every year and he has yet to finish with fewer than 84 receptions in a season, which makes him a pretty solid WR2 option more often than not in PPR. Miami cannot afford to let him walk, so expect negotiations to pick up fairly soon.
Matt Moore - QBPosted 6/6/17 11:57am ET
Miami Dolphins TE Julius Thomas is going to be a big part of the Dolphins' offensive plans in 2017, according to QB Matt Moore.
Huddle Up: A big reason for the excitement surrounding Thomas is that he is reunited with Adam Gase. Thomas easily produced the best football of his career in Denver when Gase was the Broncos' offensive coordinator. Healthy has been an issue for Thomas, though. If he can stay on the field he has TE1 upside, but he's better drafted as a TE2.
Jarvis Landry - WRPosted 6/1/17 9:45pm ET
Miami Dolphins WR Jarvis Landry estimated he'd been 'doubled on' about half the pass plays the team has run over the past two seasons, but believes the addition of TE Julius Thomas will prevent opponents from double-teaming him as often.
Huddle Up: Landry is already a high-targeted commodity -- both on the field and in fantasy -- and he's got a valid point if Thomas can become what he once was in Denver, which is very possible now that he's been reunited with Adam Gase. This also could spark an increase in Landry's touchdown total -- he's never had more than five scores in a season, but Thomas' feared presence in the red zone could open up some more looks for the fourth-year wide-out.
Julius Thomas - TEPosted 5/26/17 3:34pm ET
Miami Dolphins TE Julius Thomas' chemistry with QB Ryan Tannehill appears to be a work in progress at this point during offseason workouts, in the opinion of The Miami Herald's Barry Jackson.
Huddle Up: Thomas will have training camp and the preseason to build chemistry with Tannehill, so owners should not be worried about the situation. Thomas should be a valuable fantasy option for owners as long as he is healthy and can be a low-end No. 1 option.
Jarvis Landry - WRPosted 5/25/17 8:10am ET
Miami Dolphins WR Jarvis Landry is participating in organized team activities Thursday, May 25.
Huddle Up: Landry is seeking a new deal, but he has yet to take the next step into the WR1 class in fantasy. He had a 94-1,136-4 line last season, which is good, but he has just 13 scores in three seasons. He'll be a high-end WR2 in drafts.
Ryan Tannehill - QBPosted 5/25/17 12:24pm ET
Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill (knee) said he is 100 percent healthy now after recovering from his anterior cruciate ligament injury last season.
Huddle Up: It's been a struggle for Tannehill the last couple years. While he does have the ability to achieve QB1 numbers, it's best to draft him as a QB2.
Jay Ajayi - RBPosted 5/24/17 7:02pm ET
Miami Dolphins RB Jay Ajayi could get as many as 350 rushing attempts if the running back stays healthy and plays all 16 games, according to head coach Adam Gase.
Huddle Up: Tis the season for coaches and their unlikely workload predictions for their running backs. Only DeMarco Murray in 2014 reached the 350-carry threshold over the last four seasons, and only Ezekiel Elliott topped 300 last season. Ajayi would need to average 21.9 attempts to reach the mark - 4.5 more than he did last season. Ajayi could push for 300 carries if he stays healthy, however, and he should be more involved in the passing game this season, so he should be a solid RB1 fantasy option this season.
DeVante Parker - WRPosted 5/22/17 11:29am ET
Miami Dolphins WR DeVante Parker is doing the little things to prepare himself for a potential breakout season. According to sources, Parker is taking better care of his body, including eating right -- not skipping meals -- and sleeping well. He's also attacking his workouts and showing a desire to increase his knowledge of the game. Furthermore, Parker's route-running, footwork and consistency have all improved.
Huddle Up: The signs are pointing in the direction of success for Parker so far this offseason. Whether or not his progress will translate on the field remains to be seen. He remains the No. 2 wide receiver behind Jarvis Landry, but Parker has WR2 to WR3 upside if everything clicks for him in his third year.
DeVante Parker - WRPosted 5/20/17 9:07am ET
Miami Dolphins WR DeVante Parker said he has been working more on his legs this offseason and expects to have a big season in 2017. Parker missed some time because of hamstring problems this past season.
Huddle Up: Parker was able to play 15 games in 2016 despite the hamstring injury and finished with 744 yards and four touchdowns. He will be a starting receiver for the Dolphins as long as he can stay healthy and can be a No. 3 receiver in most fantasy leagues.
Jay Ajayi - RBPosted 5/11/17 5:27am ET
Miami Dolphins RB Jay Ajayi could see 22 to 25 carries per game this year, according to head coach Adam Gase. 'He needs to feel it out a little bit,' Gase said.
Huddle Up: Offensive coordinator Clyde Christensen also said Ajayi's receiving skills are 200 percent better. This could be a big year for Ajayi, and he rates as an RB2 in fantasy.
Julius Thomas - TEPosted 5/6/17 10:24am ET
Miami Dolphins TE Julius Thomas can add '10, 12 touchdowns' to the Dolphins' offense in 2017, according to offensive coordinator Clyde Christensen.
Huddle Up: It's a highly optimistic and, quite likely, unrealistic projection given Thomas' injury history, the fact he isn't playing with Peyton Manning anymore and Miami's focus on running the ball with Jay Ajayi. It is quite likely, however, Thomas does emerge as Ryan Tannehill's favorite red zone target, so he could have low-end TE1 upside.
