Arian Foster - RBPosted 8/26/16 12:03pm ET
Miami Dolphins RB Arian Foster 'may end up with more touches this season' than the starter, RB Jay Ajayi.
Huddle Up: Foster has looked pretty good so far this preseason, including in the club's most recent contest on Thursday when he rushed for a touchdown and also logged two catches for 20 yards. It's hard to guess which of the two tailbacks will yield the most fantasy points this year, but Foster could be the safer option based on his proven track record. As a result, he's worth going after in the middle rounds, though owners also have to realize he's still injury-prone.
Kenny Stills - WRPosted 8/25/16 8:51pm ET
Miami Dolphins WR Kenny Stills caught four passes for a team-high 46 yards in a 17-6 preseason win over the Atlanta Falcons Thursday, Aug. 25.
Huddle Up: Stills has always possessed big-play speed, but he has been a steady target for Ryan Tannehill in the preseason. He has shown enough promise to draft as a WR5.
Arian Foster - RBPosted 8/19/16 7:46pm ET
Miami Dolphins RB Arian Foster made his team debut Friday, Aug. 19, against the Dallas Cowboys, losing five yards on two carries.
Huddle Up: His age and recent injuries are concerns, but Foster's ability to catch the ball out of the backfield should ensure him a steady role in the offense. He is a RB3 candidate in PPR formats.
Kenny Stills - WRPosted 8/19/16 8:55pm ET
Miami Dolphins WR Kenny Stills caught three passes for 71 yards and two touchdowns in a 41-14 preseason loss to the Dallas Cowboys Friday, Aug. 19.
Huddle Up: Stills is coming off a disappointing season, but he still has the ability to stretch the field with big plays. He is worth a look as a WR5.
Ryan Tannehill - QBPosted 8/19/16 9:00pm ET
Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill completed 12 of his 20 passes for 162 yards and two touchdowns in a 41-14 preseason loss to the Dallas Cowboys Friday, Aug. 19.
Huddle Up: Tannehill has solid weapons around him, but he has yet to show he can be more than a midrange QB2. He is worth owning as a backup, but don't bank on a breakout year.
Arian Foster - RBPosted 8/16/16 11:45am ET
Miami Dolphins RB Arian Foster (Achilles') will make his preseason debut Friday, Aug. 19, against the Dallas Cowboys.
Huddle Up: Foster has missed a huge portion of the last couple of years due to serious injuries, and at 30, the time is ticking on his fantasy window. He's an RB3 with some upside in PPR leagues.
Jordan Cameron - TEPosted 8/16/16 2:33pm ET
Miami Dolphins TE Jordan Cameron is going through 'growing pains' and has a lot on his plate, according to Dolphins head coach Adam Gase.
Huddle Up: Not the most encouraging news for Cameron, who is beginning to look like a one-year wonder -- especially if he struggles again this season under one of the game's best young offensive minds in Gase.
Ryan Tannehill - QBPosted 8/11/16 8:58am ET
Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill has worked a lot on his football during the offseason and in training camp. He'll get his first chance to show any improvement in the preseason opener Friday, Aug. 12, against the New York Giants.
Huddle Up: Tannehill is a low-end QB2 in most fantasy formats, and is likely to only start for fantasy owners in bye week situations or when their primary starter has a difficult matchup.
Jay Ajayi - RBPosted 8/11/16 8:58am ET
Miami Dolphins RB Jay Ajayi has a good opportunity to make a statement in the preseason game Friday, Aug. 12, with veteran RB Arian Foster (Achilles') to sit.
Huddle Up: Ajayi was the presumed starter until the team reinforced the running backs corps by adding Foster. Ajayi has a chance to get a leg up in the competition for the starting job with a big performance. Both are expected to have big roles, but Ajayi could force his way into a majority of the touches with a big performance while Foster rests. Target Ajayi as an RB3 in most fantasy formats.
Leonte Carroo - WRPosted 8/11/16 9:39pm ET
Miami Dolphins WR Leonte Carroo has been having a good camp, according to head coach Adam Gase, and the team is eager to see more. 'He's been making some positive plays,' Gase said. 'His biggest thing is mentally, what are we going to do? Is he going to keep growing? Are we going to get stuck? Are we going to have that rookie wall hit? He's going to keep rolling on that.'
Huddle Up: Carroo is a talented rookie but he'll have to fight for targets in his first season with Jarvis Landry, DeVante Parker and Kenny Stills. Carroo could make a splash in re-draft leagues if Miami has an injury or two at receiver but right now he's more valuable in dynasty and DFS formats.
Arian Foster - RBPosted 8/10/16 11:08am ET
Miami Dolphins RB Arian Foster will not play in the first preseason game, according to head coach Adam Gase.
Huddle Up: Foster and Jay Ajayi figure to split the work, but Foster, at age 30, is coming off of two major injuries. Both are RB3 worthy, but Ajayi has the upside of youth.
DeVante Parker - WRPosted 8/9/16 9:00am ET
Miami Dolphins WR DeVante Parker (hamstring) returned to practice Tuesday, Aug. 9.
Huddle Up: Parker is set to be the team's second receiver, and he came on strong late last season. He's a WR3 with some upside in fantasy as defenses will likely focus on Jarvis Landry.
Jay Ajayi - RBPosted 8/8/16 10:02am ET
Miami Dolphins RB Jay Ajayi is listed as the starter on the team's preseason Week 1 depth chart.
Huddle Up: Ajayi and Arian Foster figure to split the reps, but Ajayi has some catching up to do after missing time with a bone bruise in his knee. Both are in the RB3 realm in fantasy.
Jarvis Landry - WRPosted 8/6/16 6:39pm ET
Miami Dolphins WR Jarvis Landry has been an effective kick and punt returner to this point of his career, but the team is hoping to have him focus solely on offense. Miami would like to see rookie WR Jakeem Grant assume both roles so Landry can focus on offense only.
Huddle Up: Landry is one of the top return men in the NFL but the ultra quick Grant has been dynamic early on in training camp. Landry will once again be a PPR monster. He currently has an ADP in Round 3.
Kenyan Drake - RBPosted 8/5/16 11:36am ET
Miami Dolphins RB Kenyan Drake (hamstring) suffered an apparent hamstring injury Friday, Aug. 5.
Huddle Up: Drake was a distant third in the pecking order, but he is worth deep-league flier if the hamstring doesn't keep him out long.
Arian Foster - RBPosted 8/4/16 2:50pm ET
Miami Dolphins RB Arian Foster has been 'head and shoulders' the best running back in practice, in the opinion of beat writer Armando Salguero.
Huddle Up: This should be no revelation considering the chief competition is Jay Ajayi and Damien Williams, and the real question is can the soon-to-be-30-year back stay healthy after only playing in 25 of 48 games over the last three seasons.
DeVante Parker - WRPosted 8/4/16 2:50pm ET
Miami Dolphins WR DeVante Parker (hamstring) is out of practice Thursday, Aug. 4.
Huddle Up: The Dolphins are understandably taking the cautious route with the second-year wideout and 2015 first-round pick but it's certainly not making things any easier for fantasy GMs weighing Parker against the other low-end WR3 draft candidates.
Arian Foster - RBPosted 8/2/16 8:08am ET
Miami Dolphins RB Arian Foster worked with the first unit again in practice Monday, Aug. 1, with RB Jay Ajayi (knee) sidelined. Head coach Adam Gase said, "(Foster) is going to be working with the ones the whole training camp. His resume speaks for itself. I don't think there's any question why we brought him in here. He's playing this year. Whether he's the guy that will be the first snap of the game, time will tell. He is going to be rolling with the ones."
Huddle Up: Coach speak? Foster probably will be the lead dog, but his injury history and extensive mileage work against him. In an even-touch split, Ajayi may outperform Foster. Predicting how the ball is divvied up on a weekly basis figures to be a nightmare, and it's safest to treat both backs as No. 3 draft targets. Foster has more PPR worth, and Ajayi is the better standard-scoring selection.
Jay Ajayi - RBPosted 8/2/16 11:01pm ET
Miami Dolphins RB Jay Ajayi (knee) did not practice again Tuesday, Aug. 2.
Huddle Up: It's still early in camp, but every day that Ajayi misses is another uptick in value for the recently signed Arian Foster.
Jay Ajayi - RBPosted 8/1/16 8:58am ET
Miami Dolphins RB Jay Ajayi (knee) is out of practice Monday, Aug. 1. It's not known if it's a day-to-day thing or in any way symptomatic of the knee injury that caused his draft stock to fall a year ago. Ajayi has maintained that his knee is a "non-issue," according to his doctors. Some have speculated his knee is bone-on-bone, which could shorten his career.
Huddle Up: We'll hopefully learn more when head coach Adam Gase speaks after practice, but it could just be a rest day. Ajayi figures to be in a timeshare with Arian Foster. Both are worth RB3 looks, but Ajayi's youth gives him the upside if he is healthy.
Isaiah Pead - RBPosted 8/1/16 10:12am ET
Miami Dolphins RB Isaiah Pead is working with the starting unit Monday, Aug. 1, while RB Jay Ajayi (knee) is sidelined. RB Arian Foster spelled Pead with the second unit.
Huddle Up: Pead will be lucky to make the final roster and has no fantasy value. Moreover, this illustrates Miami's thin running back depth and Kenyan Drake's limited knowledge of the offense.
Jay Ajayi - RBPosted 8/1/16 12:18pm ET
Updating an earlier report, Miami Dolphins RB Jay Ajayi (knee) is day to day, head coach Adam Gase said after practice Monday, Aug. 1.
Huddle Up: Ajayi figures to be in a timeshare with Arian Foster, who came out with the second team today. Both are worth high-end RB3 looks, but Ajayi's youth gives him the upside if the knee doesn't become a persistent issue.
Arian Foster - RBPosted 7/31/16 1:21pm ET
Miami Dolphins RB Arian Foster (Achilles') was activated from the Physically Unable to Perform list Sunday, July 31.
Huddle Up: Good to see, but still expect the Dolphins to proceed with much caution throughout the preseason.
Arian Foster - RBPosted 7/29/16 12:31pm ET
Miami Dolphins RB Arian Foster (Achilles) was placed on the Physically Unable to Perform list Friday, July 29.
Huddle Up: No real need for the Dolphins to rush Foster into action early in camp coming off his injury-shortened 2015 season, and we'll keep a eye on his progress in South Florida.
Arian Foster - RBPosted 7/19/16 4:11pm ET
Miami Dolphins RB Arian Foster officially signed with the team Monday, July 18, and said that he is fully healthy after suffering a ruptured Achilles' tendon last season. He said he still feels like a Pro Bowl-caliber player and intends to show that. 'I don't have any expectations. Just coming here to compete and help the squad out however I can,' Foster said.
Huddle Up: Sliding into the No. 2 spot behind second-year Jay Ajayi, Foster immediately upgrades the Miami RB situation, and he could move to the top of the chart if he shows he's fully healthy and back near his form of 2-3 years ago. That's a big if, though, as Foster officially will be on the wrong side of 30 come the regular season.
Jay Ajayi - RBPosted 7/19/16 4:11pm ET
Miami Dolphins RB Jay Ajayi is expected to enter training camp as the starting running back, in the opinion of The Palm Beach Post's Andrew Abramson.
Huddle Up: Ajayi, who totalled 277 yards on 56 touches in nine games as a rookie last season, will need to immediately needs to show improvement and establish himself as the No. 1 back in training camp, otherwise the door will be open for Foster to make a move as he gets healthier.
DeVante Parker - WRPosted 7/7/16 7:41pm ET
Miami Dolphins WR DeVante Parker (foot) is at full health and will likely be pushed harder in training camp than he was during offseason activities.
Huddle Up: This will be a big sophomore season upcoming for Parker, the 2015 first-round pick who posted a 26-494-3 stat line as a rookie. You might be tempted to overreach in drafts given Parker's upside, but look for him in WR4 territory.
Leonte Carroo - WRPosted 7/5/16 12:54pm ET
Miami Dolphins WR Leonte Carroo probably will receive playing time in 2016 as long as he continues to impress during training camp.
Huddle Up: With PPR-stud Jarvis Landry and second-year wideout DeVante Parker drawing much of the fantasy attention in South Beach, don't forget about the third-round pick who's been looking as if he's on track to make a seamless jump to the NFL.
Leonte Carroo - WRPosted 6/23/16 1:13pm ET
Miami Dolphins WR Leonte Carroo made a favorable impressive on the coaching staff during the team's offseason program. He said Wednesday, June 22, that his first priority is losing weight. 'I'm 217 now, trying to get down to 210,' Carroo said. 'You become faster when you shed some pounds. I don't have any bad weight on me. That's what I was at the combine. Why not be as fast and explosive as I can be?'
Huddle Up: The third-round pick has received a fair amount of sleeper hype, but to have any significant 2016 fantasy relevance, he'll likely have to beat out 2015 first-round pick DeVante Parker for a starting position.
Ryan Tannehill - QBPosted 6/19/16 2:21pm ET
Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill had had some issues with ball placement and wasn't on the same page as his receivers at times during OTAs, head coach Adam Gase said.
Huddle Up: Tannehill completed 66.4 percent of his passes in 2014 when his yards per attempt was 6.9, but it dipped to 61.9 last season when he had a career-best 72 yards per attempt average. The bottom line is that Tannehill needs to improve his accuracy, particularly on longer-range throws, and that's what Gase and Co. have striving toward this offseason.
