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.
Kenny Stills - WRPosted 7/19/15 11:39pm ET
Miami Dolphins WR Kenny Stills averaged 16.5 yards per catch and had 11 receptions of 40-plus yards in his first two years in the NFL.
Huddle Up: That certainly worked well in the Big Easy, but the Dolphins and their short-pass-oriented attack only had four 40-yard-plus aerial gains all last season -- with only the Chiefs having fewer with three -- so expect Stills' big-play numbers and yardage to head south in South Beach.
DeVante Parker - WRPosted 7/12/15 10:40am ET
Miami Dolphins WR DeVante Parker (foot) remains on track to be ready for Week 1 and 'everything is perfect' in his recovery from foot surgery, according to Parker's agent James Gould. Gould noted it is still too early to know if Parker will be available for preseason games.
Huddle Up: It would be nice, but not necessary, for the rookie receiver to get some preseason reps with his offense if the plan is for him to make an immediate impact. For the moment, though, the foot issue will keep a lid on his draft day value.
Greg Jennings - WRPosted 7/12/15 7:27pm ET
Miami Dolphins WR Greg Jennings may not be one of the team's top three receivers this season if WR DeVante Parker (foot) is healthy and WR Kenny Stills outperforms him. Jennings will be able to win one of the top three jobs if he performs well during training camp.
Huddle Up: Jennings averaged 63.5 catches, 773 yards and five TDs per season in his two-year run with the Vikings, and while the weather will be more favorable in South Beach, the opportunities at WR won't necessarily be with 2014 receptions leader Jarvis Landry already in place and the team trading for Stills and drafting Parker in the first round. In fact, Jennings likely will go undrafted in most standard-size fantasy leagues this summer.
Jay Ajayi - RBPosted 7/10/15 4:46pm ET
Miami Dolphins RB Jay Ajayi is expected to make the final roster out of training camp.
Huddle Up: With Daniel Thomas now out of the picture in South Beach, the door certainly is open for the fifth-round pick, who's viewed by many as an ideal complement to starter Lamar Miller.
Jarvis Landry - WRPosted 7/10/15 11:51pm ET
Miami Dolphins WR Jarvis Landry has been working on improving his speed this offseason to show that he is more than a slot receiver.
Huddle Up: The 2014 second-round pick paced the Dolphins -- and a stud rookie WR class -- with 84 receptions last season and the century mark isn't out of the question this year with the Dolphins revamping their entire pass-catching corps around Landry.
Ryan Tannehill - QBPosted 6/30/15 5:08pm ET
Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill considers himself a big leader in the Dolphins' organization. WR Kenny Stills said Tannehill has put the team on his shoulders and is letting them know that everyone must work hard every day to be successful.
Huddle Up: That time in Tannehill's career has arrived as he's entering his fourth season. In addition, he basically has a whole new supporting cast on offense, meaning the QB's leadership is going to be more important than ever. Fantasy-wise, Tannehill is coming off a top-10 QB season, and if all the new pieces fall into place, there's no reason he can't repeat the feat.
DeVante Parker - WRPosted 6/9/15 4:10pm ET
Miami Dolphins WR DeVante Parker (foot) might be limited for the start of training camp, QB Ryan Tannehill hinted this week.
Huddle Up: Parker now has undergone two surgical procedures on the same foot within the last year, and is definitely a question mark -- fantasy and otherwise -- for the early part of his rookie season. Stay tuned to see if there will be better news in the offing.
Caleb Sturgis - PKPosted 6/5/15 12:20am ET
Miami Dolphins PK Caleb Sturgis (thigh) sustained the thigh injury that will sideline him throughout spring practice during a team-sanctioned kickball game, a source confirmed Thursday, June 4.
Huddle Up: A kicker injured in kickball -- now we truly may have heard and seen it all.
DeVante Parker - WRPosted 6/5/15 12:57pm ET
Updating an earlier report, Miami Dolphins WR DeVante Parker (foot) will miss eight weeks following surgery on his left foot. He should be ready before the preseason begins. Parker had surgery on his left foot Friday, June 5.
Huddle Up: It was termed a "minor" procedure, but it's troubling news to say the least as the first-round pick had a screw inserted in the same foot last year, causing him to miss the first six games of his senior season at Louisville. He's going to fall behind for now, but he should be able to catch up if he can return for most of training camp.
Caleb Sturgis - PKPosted 6/1/15 1:16am ET
Miami Dolphins PK Caleb Sturgis is still backed by the team even though he has ranked 28th and 29th in field goal percentage over the last two seasons, according to special teams coordinator Darren Rizzi.
Huddle Up: Unless you play in a league that deducts points for missed FGs, Sturgis still ranked as a borderline starting fantasy kicker last season with 128 points and he'll certainly be worth considering again in drafts this summer if the Dolphins don't change course.
Caleb Sturgis - PKPosted 6/1/15 11:36pm ET
Updating a previous report, Miami Dolphins PK Caleb Sturgis (leg) will miss the rest of the organized team activities because of a leg injury, according to head coach Joe Philbin.
Huddle Up: Kicker news! No big deal for Sturgis to miss OTAs, but if he's a kicker you're tracking you'll want to make sure he's fully healthy for the start of training camp. Otherwise, you have, like, 31 other options.
Ryan Tannehill - QBPosted 5/27/15 11:22pm ET
Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill praised his largely rebuilt wide receivers corps Tuesday, May 26, saying this is the most athletic group he has worked with in the NFL. He also praised them for being natural hands-catchers.
Huddle Up: The Dolphins not only rewarded Tannehill with a fat new contract, they also revamped his receiving corps--apparently to Tannehill's liking. It's another reason to be excited about Tannehill's fantasy potential heading into the 2015 season.
DeVante Parker - WRPosted 5/27/15 11:27pm ET
Miami Dolphins rookie WR DeVante Parker has already gained the attention of QB Ryan Tannehill. 'He's a good player. You can see his athleticism, his natural ability, already,' Tannehill said. 'He made a bunch of good catches [Tuesday] -- catches where he's using his body, keeping the defender off of him. He catches the ball with his hands.'
Huddle Up: There's no reason to think Parker won't be a Week One starter for the Dolphins, and the fact that he's already impressing his quarterback only helps his fantasy prospects.
Lamar Miller - RBPosted 5/26/15 1:36am ET
Miami Dolphins RB Jay Ajayi is considered the No. 2 running back at this point and could potentially challenge RB Lamar Miller for the starting running back position.
Huddle Up: Ajayi has the talent to be Miami's every-down back; the concern is whether his knees can hold up. At minimum he'll push Miller, who the Dolphins are far from committed to.
Ryan Tannehill - QBPosted 5/19/15 1:29am ET
Clarifying a previous story, Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill's new deal includes four new contract years and up to $77 million in new money. The deal is worth $95.27 million over six total years, with options for 2015 and 2016 added in.
Huddle Up: The Dolphins overhauled their offensive line last year and revamped their receiving corps this season. Now they've locked up Tannehill for the next five years with a significant investment. Clearly the team believes in him, which makes it a whole lot easier for fantasy owners to do the same.
DeVante Parker - WRPosted 5/10/15 6:59pm ET
Miami Dolphins WR DeVante Parker is the type of receiver the offense has been lacking, according to former WR O.J. McDuffie. 'We don't have anybody that will go attack the football, nobody to go get it,' McDuffie said. 'On 50-50 balls, he's got to be the guy right at the beginning of the season that, covered or uncovered, he's got to go up and get that ball at its high point. Right away he's got to be in the mix.'
Huddle Up: Parker was limited last season to his foot injury at Louisville, but the first-round pick has the size (6-3, 210) and speed combo at WR that the Dolphins have lacked in a while. And while second-year Jarvis Landry, should remain Ryan Tannehill's top target, there's no reason to think Parker can't become the the Dolphins' top big-play producer.
Jay Ajayi - RBPosted 5/10/15 11:54pm ET
Miami Dolphins RB Jay Ajayi said he feels great and there is nothing wrong with his knee. Head coach Joe Philbin said Ajayi will be given opportunities to prove his value to the team during offseason workouts.
Huddle Up: The door is clearly open for the fifth-round pick to assume the No. 2 change-of-pace role behind starter Lamar Miller. If he can, the rookie will be among the more intriguing RB4/5 options as he'll be in line for ample touches and likely a strong share of the goal-line work.
Lamar Miller - RBPosted 5/8/15 7:34pm ET
Miami Dolphins RB Lamar Miller is expected to be the No. 1 back heading into the 2015 season, according to The Miami Herald.
Huddle Up: There's been a lot of hype surrounding the steal the Dolphins got in landing Jay Ajayi in the fifth round, but Miller is coming off easily his best season (1,374 total yards, 9 TDs) in his three years as a pro and it will take a Miller injury quite a camp by the Boise State rookie or another back to wrest even a sizable share of the workload away from the incumbent lead dog.
Rishard Matthews - WRPosted 5/7/15 10:43pm ET
Miami Dolphins WR Rishard Matthews is not participating in offseason workouts and is hoping to be released or traded, according to sources. It is not known if Matthews will report for mandatory minicamp next month.
Huddle Up: Matthews fell from 41-448-2 in 2013 to 12-135-2 this past season and seems to be on the back burner again with the Dolphins clearing out three WRs (Brian Hartline, Mike Wallace and Brandon Gibson) and replacing them with three more in Kenny Stills, Greg Jennings and first-round pick DeVante Parker. A change of scenery definitely would appear to be in Matthews' best interests -- preferably joining a team that needs help in the slot.
DeVante Parker - WRPosted 5/6/15 12:14am ET
Miami Dolphins WR DeVante Parker could start in his rookie season, according to Omar Kelly of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel. Kelly has Parker behind WR Jarvis Landry and ahead of WR Kenny Stills.
Huddle Up: No offense to Mr. Kelly, but we kinda think that was the intention with the WR-depleted Dolphins spending a first-round pick on Parker.
Jay Ajayi - RBPosted 5/3/15 4:01pm ET
Miami Dolphins RB Jay Ajayi (knee) may have a potential bone on bone issue that may have contributed to his falling down some teams' draft boards.
Huddle Up: Ajayi lasted until the fifth round, but now he'll have the chance to show he's healthy, and if he can, he has more than a decent chance of winning the Dolphins' No. 2 RB gig behind Lamar Miller.
Ryan Tannehill - QBPosted 4/30/15 12:11am ET
Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill had his fifth-year option picked up Wednesday, April 29, according to NFL Media's Ian Rapoport. The option is worth $16 million for 2016 and is fully guaranteed only in the event of an injury. The Dolphins plan to work out a long-term deal prior to the season opener.
Huddle Up: With the deadline approaching, time for teams to lock down their fifth-year first-rounders--assuming they're happy with their body of work to date. And the Dolphins are clearly happy with Tannehill.
DeVante Parker - WRPosted 4/30/15 10:45pm ET
Louisville WR DeVante Parker was selected 14th overall by the Miami Dolphins in the 2015 NFL Draft on Thursday, April 30.
Huddle Up: The Dolphins had their choice of top WRs with Parker and Breshad Perriman both still on the board at No. 14, and they went with the athletic Parker, who missed half of this past season with a foot injury. In all, a necessary move to benefit still-developing QB Ryan Tannehill after losing TE Charles Clay and WRs Mike Wallace, Brian Hartline and Brandon Gibson earlier this offseason.
Dion Jordan - DEPosted 4/28/15 4:09pm ET
Miami Dolphins DE Dion Jordan will be suspended for the entire 2015 season for another substance abuse policy violation, according to league sources. Jordan will not appeal the suspension.
Huddle Up: This will be the third suspension for Jordan in the last year and will likely spell the end of the troubled Miami career of the 2013 third-overall pick who has made one start and notched three sacks in two seasons.
