Kenny Stills - WRPosted 1/12/17 5:55pm ET
Miami Dolphins WR Kenny Stills is an impending free agent, and re-signing him is one of the top priorities for Miami this offseason.
Huddle Up: Stills can be inconsistent, but there is no denying his ability to hit the big play. If he ends up back in Miami, he will be a boom-or-bust WR4 in 2017.
Ryan Tannehill - QBPosted 1/11/17 10:39am ET
Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill (knee) is still 'going through the process' of having his knee evaluated to determine whether surgery is the proper course of action, according to Dolphins head coach Adam Gase.
Huddle Up: Tannehill has the weaponry and offensive system in place to a decent fantasy QB2 with a touch of upside in 2017. He has flashed at times in his career, but he is relatively young in terms of his quarterbacking maturation as a former wide receiver. Following a dismal 2016 effort, he will be greatly discounted in drafts.
Ryan Tannehill - QBPosted 1/11/17 11:29am ET
Miami Dolphins head coach Adam Gase did not rule out the possibility of QB Ryan Tannehill (knee) undergoing major knee surgery during the offseason. Gase said the trainers are still evaluating Tannehill's injury.
Huddle Up: Tannehill probably would have to miss some offseason workouts if he needs surgery and could be questionable for the start of training camp depending on the surgery. Owners should keep an eye on the situation over the next few weeks. Tannehill played well this season and could be a low-end No. 1 quarterback or a No. 2 quarterback in most leagues if he is healthy.
Matt Moore - QBPosted 1/9/17 5:22am ET
Updating previous reports, Miami Dolphins QB Matt Moore (jaw) left the playoff game briefly Sunday, Jan. 8, after suffering a blow to the head. Moore doesn't have a concussion, and he was more worried about his jaw region.
Huddle Up: He was 29-for-36 (80.6%) for 289 yards, a touchdown and an interception. Moore's numbers were decent on paper, but he lost two fumbles on top of that interception. He'll likely return to a backup role next season and have no immediate fantasy value.
Kenny Stills - WRPosted 1/9/17 9:47am ET
Impending free-agent WR Kenny Stills (Dolphins) is hopeful he will be able to return to the Miami Dolphins next season.
Huddle Up: Considering he doesn't turn 25 until April, Stills shouldn't have trouble finding a new employer should Miami not feel the same way. The fourth-year pro averaged 17.3 yards per reception and led the team with a career-high nine touchdown catches in 2016, so it would be surprising if the Dolphins don't want him back. While the presence of Jarvis Landry and DeVante Parker will continue to cap his upside, Stills should be a popular WR4/WR5 option in drafts this summer.
Jarvis Landry - WRPosted 1/9/17 10:16am ET
Miami Dolphins WR Jarvis Landry has one year left on his rookie deal, but it is reportedly a 'near certainty' he will be offered a contract extension at some point this spring after leading the team in receiving in each of his first three seasons.
Huddle Up: This one should be a no-brainer for the Dolphins, as Landry finished his third NFL campaign with 94 receptions and is coming off an 11-catch, 102-yard effort in the team's Wild Card playoff loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers. Landry hasn't shown much touchdown upside - he scored five offensive touchdowns in 2014 and 2015 before tallying four in 2016 - but that is about the only reason he hasn't emerged as a true WR1 in fantasy yet.
Jay Ajayi - RBPosted 1/8/17 1:01pm ET
Miami Dolphins RB Jay Ajayi (shoulder) left the Wild Card playoff game early after suffering an apparent shoulder injury.
Huddle Up: Ajayi may not return to the game because of the score, but owners should look for an update on his status after the game. He will have plenty of time to recover if the Dolphins to not advance in the playoffs. Owners should consider Ajayi as a No. 2 running back in most leagues since he should receive most of the work in 2017.
Jay Ajayi - RBPosted 1/8/17 1:28pm ET
Miami Dolphins RB Jay Ajayi rushed for 33 yards on 16 carries in the Wild Card playoff game against the Pittsburgh Steelers. He also caught three passes for 12 yards during the game.
Huddle Up: Ajayi did not have a great playoff game but was still one of the better running back for fantasy owners this season with 1,272 yards and eight touchdowns during the regular season. He should be the starting running back again next season and should be considered a low-end No. 1 or No. 2 back in fantasy leagues.
Matt Moore - QBPosted 1/8/17 1:02pm ET
Miami Dolphins QB Matt Moore went 29-for-36 for 289 yards, one touchdown and one interception in the Wild Card playoff game against the Pittsburgh Steelers. He also lost two fumbles during the game.
Huddle Up: Moore played well as the starting quarterback over the last three games but should be the backup quarterback again next season. Ryan Tannehill will be the starter in 2017 and should be considered a No. 2 quarterback in most fantasy leagues.
Kenny Stills - WRPosted 1/8/17 1:44pm ET
Miami Dolphins WR Kenny Stills caught five passes for 82 yards in the Wild Card playoff game against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Huddle Up: Stills had a strong finish to his 2016 season with a touchdown in five of his last six regular season games. He should receive interest from multiple teams if he hits the free-agent market and could be a No. 3 or No. 4 fantasy receiver depending on his team.
Jarvis Landry - WRPosted 1/8/17 1:37pm ET
Miami Dolphins WR Jarvis Landry caught 11 passes for 102 yards in the Wild Card playoff game against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Huddle Up: Landry finished the season with at least 100 yards in three of his final five games and had two of his four touchdowns in the final three regular season game. He will continue to be the Dolphins' top receiver in 2017 and should be considered a No. 2 or No. 3 receiver for fantasy owners.
DeVante Parker - WRPosted 1/8/17 1:52pm ET
Miami Dolphins WR DeVante Parker caught four passes for 55 yards in the Wild Card playoff game against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Huddle Up: Parker was a bit inconsistent during the regular season but was targeted at least six times in each of the final three games. He probably will be one of the starting receivers for the Dolphins in 2017 and can be considered a No. 4 receiver in fantasy drafts.
Jay Ajayi - RBPosted 1/8/17 4:57pm ET
Miami Dolphins RB Jay Ajayi (shoulder) said the shoulder injury he aggravated against the Pittsburgh Steelers Sunday, Jan. 8, was initially suffered in Week 16, but he expects to be fine going forward.
Huddle Up: Ajayi ran for more than 1,200 yards this season and established himself as the feature back in Miami. The offensive line should be healthier in 2017, and Ajayi should be a borderline RB1.
Ryan Tannehill - QBPosted 1/6/17 10:30am ET
Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill (knee) was limited at practice Friday, Jan. 6, after sitting out the previous two days.
Huddle Up: Tannehill has already been ruled out for Sunday against the Pittsburgh Steelers, but this upgrade suggests he has a chance to play next week against the New England Patriots should the Dolphins advance. Matt Moore will get the nod and figures to be an uninspiring start in fantasy.
Jay Ajayi - RBPosted 1/6/17 6:29pm ET
Miami Dolphins RB Jay Ajayi said he understands that a productive run game will be key if Miami is going to defeat the Pittsburgh Steelers Sunday, Jan. 8.
Huddle Up: Ajayi ran for 204 yards in a win over the Steelers earlier this year, and he figures to see plenty of touches in the rematch. Pittsburgh ranks in the middle of the pack when it comes to stopping the run, giving a workhorse like Ajayi a high floor this weekend.
Ryan Tannehill - QBPosted 1/5/17 7:19am ET
Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill (knee) will not play in the AFC wild card round of the playoffs, according to a source.
Huddle Up: No surprise here. The Pittsburgh Steelers present a midrange matchup for Matt Moore. Moore averaged 224.7 yards passing, 2.7 touchdowns and one interception in the final three games. He's actually a midrange QB1 for the first round of the playoffs with so many muddy quarterback situations.
Ryan Tannehill - QBPosted 1/4/17 9:27am ET
Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill (knee) won't practice Wednesday, Jan. 4, according to a source. No decision has been made for his practice status Thursday, Jan. 5.
Huddle Up: There is a shred of hope for Tannehill to start the first game of the playoffs, but he'll need to practice this week in order to do so. The Pittsburgh Steelers are a midrange matchup whether Tannehill or Matt Moore start. Both are pretty questionable plays, but if the price is right in DFS, there could be potential to load up elsewhere.
Matt Moore - QBPosted 1/4/17 12:11pm ET
Miami Dolphins QB Matt Moore likely will the starting quarterback in the Wild Card playoff game against the Pittsburgh Steelers unless something changes drastically, according to head coach Adam Gase.
Huddle Up: The Dolphins are trying to get Ryan Tannehill back on the field, but it looks like Moore will receive at least one more start. He has thrown eight touchdowns and three interceptions in the last three games and has played well as a starter. He will be facing an improved Steelers defense and may not be the best option for owners.
Ryan Tannehill - QBPosted 1/2/17 4:24pm ET
Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill must practice before head coach Adam Gase will consider playing him in the playoffs. Tannehill is recovering from a Grade 2 medial collateral ligament sprain. QB Matt Moore has been starting in his place.
Huddle Up: Moore has held his own while replacing Tannehill, but this is the playoffs. If Tannehill can't go then Moore will be playing on the road in a hostile environment. He can't be trusted for those playing in playoff leagues.
Jay Ajayi - RBPosted 1/1/17 7:09am ET
Miami Dolphins RB Jay Ajayi (shoulder) is expected to play in Week 17's game against the New England Patriots, after being a full participant in practice Friday, Dec. 30.
Huddle Up: Ajayi is expected to receive the bulk of the carries this afternoon, although his workload will probably be dependent upon the flow of the game. View him as a low-end RB1 or high-end RB2 versus the Pats, even though he is coming off of a 200-yard game against the Buffalo Bills in Week 16.
Matt Moore - QBPosted 1/1/17 5:37pm ET
Miami Dolphins QB Matt Moore made another start in Week 17 with QB Ryan Tannehill (knee) sidelined. Moore completed 24 of his 34 pass attempts for 205 yards, two touchdowns and an interception.
Huddle Up: It's uncertain if Moore or Tannehill will be under center for the team's start in the wild-card round in Pittsburgh, but Moore would be worth a look as a low-end QB1 in postseason fantasy leagues if he gets the nod.
Jay Ajayi - RBPosted 1/1/17 6:50pm ET
Miami Dolphins RB Jay Ajayi rushed 16 times for 59 yards in the Week 17 game against the New England Patriots. He also had three receptions for 20 yards on his three targets.
Huddle Up: Unfortunately for Ajayi, the Bills did not qualify for the playoffs. He will face the Pittsburgh Steelers in the wild-card round, and they're solid against the rush. Treat Ajayi more as a RB2 in most postseason fantasy pools.
Jarvis Landry - WRPosted 1/1/17 7:13pm ET
Miami Dolphins WR Jarvis Landry hauled in nine receptions for 76 yards and a touchdown on 12 targets in the Week 17 game against the New England Patriots.
Huddle Up: Landry wrapped up his regular season with 94 catches for 1,136 yards and four touchdowns. He is a stud in all PPR fantasy formats, and he should be treated as a WR2 in all postseason fantasy pools. The Dolphins travel to Pittsburgh for the wild-card round.
Jay Ajayi - RBPosted 12/30/16 1:13pm ET
Miami Dolphins RB Jay Ajayi (shoulder) fully participated in practice Friday, Dec. 30, and is listed as questionable for Week 17.
Huddle Up: Ajayi should be able to play and likely will receive most of the work at running back. He is coming off a 206-yard performance in Week 16 and has eight touchdowns on the season. Ajayi can be considered a low-end No. 1 running back or a No. 2 running back in all leagues.
Jay Ajayi - RBPosted 12/29/16 6:04pm ET
Miami Dolphins RB Jay Ajayi (shoulder) was a limited participant in practice Thursday, Dec. 29.
Huddle Up: Ajayi has had three 200-yard games this year, but he has also had several mediocre performances. He should be a volume-driven RB2 in Week 17 against New England.
Jay Ajayi - RBPosted 12/28/16 11:57am ET
Miami Dolphins RB Jay Ajayi (shoulder) will play against the New England Patriots in Week 17 unless he suffers a setback, according to head coach Adam Gase.
Huddle Up: Ajayi is dealing with a shoulder injury he suffered in Week 16 but probably will receive most of the work if he plays this week. He is coming off a 200-yard performance and should be a No. 1 running back in all fantasy leagues.
Jay Ajayi - RBPosted 12/28/16 2:19pm ET
Miami Dolphins RB Jay Ajayi (shoulder) was limited during practice Wednesday, Dec. 28.
Huddle Up: Ajayi is expected to play in Week 17 and should receive a lot of work after running for over 200 yards last week. He will be facing a solid New England Patriots defense but should still be considered a No. 1 running back.
Ryan Tannehill - QBPosted 12/26/16 6:12am ET
Updating previous reports, Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill (knee) is viewed as day to day, according to a source.
Huddle Up: Matt Moore has been better than probably anyone could have hoped for in Tannehill's absence. It's probably unlikely Tannehill will play against the New England Patriots in Week 17 three weeks after suffering a Grade 2 MCL sprain and a partially torn ACL. The Pats are a midrange matchup, but will they rest guys a full game up on the Derek Carr-less Oakland Raiders now? There could be upside for Moore if he remains under center.
Jay Ajayi - RBPosted 12/26/16 10:25am ET
Miami Dolphins head coach Adam Gase told reporters Monday, Dec. 26, his goal is to go '1-0 this week', implying he will not rest his starters in Week 17 versus the New England Patriots with a chance to improve the team's seeding in the NFL Playoffs. RB Jay Ajayi (shoulder) was favoring his left shoulder near the end of the team's Week 16 win over the Buffalo Bills.
Huddle Up: The No. 5 seed will visit Houston in the wild-card round, so it is not hard to understand why an opponent would prefer that destination as opposed to Pittsburgh. A loss to New England or a Week 17 win by the Kansas City Chiefs against the San Diego Chargers makes the point moot, however, as it would lock the Dolphins into the No. 6 seed. Kenyan Drake would likely see the biggest workload if Gase chooses to rest Ajayi, but it appears for now as if it will be business as usual in Miami this week.
Jay Ajayi - RBPosted 12/25/16 12:40pm ET
Miami Dolphins RB Jay Ajayi (shoulder) suffered an AC joint sprain during the team's Week 16 game but expects to play in Week 17.
Huddle Up: Ajayi has rushed for at least 200 yards three times this season and has become a reliable fantasy option for owners. He will be facing a solid New England Patriots defense in Week 17 but should be considered a No. 1 or No. 2 running back in all leagues.
