    Miami Dolphins TE Mike Gesicki caught one of his two targets for 11 yards in a 27-20 win over the Tennessee Titans in Week 1.

    Huddle Up: Gesicki is a big, athletic target, but his quiet opener is a reminder that rookie tight ends rarely provide great fantasy value. He has enough upside to stash on your bench as a TE2, but you shouldn't expect consistent results.

    Miami Dolphins TE Mike Gesicki has the potential to be a player in the mold of current Green Bay Packers TE Jimmy Graham, WR Kenny Stills said Wednesday, Aug. 22.

    Huddle Up: Fantasy owners would be thrilled if Gesicki was able to possess those types of traits. The rookie out of Penn State is turning heads in camp and the preseason, but still is only worth a look as a TE2 until further notice. He has a ton of upside, however, and is a great dynasty league addition.

    Miami Dolphins TE Mike Gesicki has the skill set to play outside as a wide receiver if the Dolphins choose to implement him there, according to The Miami Herald's Barry Jackson. Gesicki's size and athleticism make him a mismatch anywhere on the field.

    Huddle Up: Gesicki needs to prove himself before we can give him serious credence. The talent is there, sure, but we can't consider him a starting fantasy tight end right now.

    Miami Dolphins RBs Kenyan Drake and Frank Gore both appeared atop the team's first depth chart Sunday, Aug. 5. Another one of the more notable surprises was TE Mike Gesicki, who was listed as the fifth-string tight end.

    Huddle Up: This comes with the obvious caveat that depth charts released a month before the first game can usually be taken with a grain of salt. For example, Gesicki is in no danger of getting cut and has reportedly looked very good in camp. Drake should still be considered the favorite to lead this team in all rushing categories, but owners need to understand he will probably lose at least 100 to 150 touches to Gore, making him a bit of an untrustworthy RB2 in fantasy.

    Miami Dolphins TE Mike Gesicki received his most extensive first-team work and caught two touchdown passes in practice Sunday, July 29. According to tight ends coach Shane Day, he has been competent as a blocker as well through four days of camp and two days of practicing in upper pads. 'I'm very pleased where he's at with his blocking. He's right on track. He's really improved this spring. He's right where I would expect him to be as a rookie. ? He's very physical and likes contact. ? He's exactly as advertised (as a receiver). ? We're asking him to do different techniques a little different from what he did in college and he's adjusting to it well,' Day said.

    Huddle Up: While it is unreasonable to expect any rookie to be this year's Evan Engram, Gesicki is the most likely to do so. His receiving skills are already exceptional for a rookie, so his emergence this season figures to come down to whether or not he is making the strides as a blocker Day says he is. While rookie tight ends are notoriously bad bets in fantasy, Gesicki has the goods to be a top-20 fantasy tight end in 2018.

    Miami Dolphins TE Mike Gesicki has been 'a non-factor' in the four practices open to reporters the spring and even 'looked lost at times,' according to Adam Beasley of The Miami Herald.

    Huddle Up: If this is a topic of discussion in August, then Miami might have a problem. Until then, it is way too early to hit the panic button. Beasley admitted Gesicki flashed some of the talent in closed sessions that convinced the Dolphins to use a second-round pick on him. Given his relatively limited route tree at Penn State, it was always likely he would look lost right off the bat. Owners should still view him as a high-upside TE2 in redraft formats this summer as a tight end who should see plenty of work in the slot.

    Miami Dolphins TE Mike Gesicki has 'been on it with assignments' during OTAs, according to tight ends coach Shane Day, and Day said Gesicki is 'on the right track' as a blocker.'

    Huddle Up: Even if Gesicki needs a little time to develop as a blocker, his skills as a receiver should put him in TE2 territory immediately.

  • Posted: 5/12/2018 6:56pm ET

    Miami Dolphins offensive coordinator Dowell Loggains said they could use more sets with three tight ends this year in order to utilize TE Mike Gesicki.

    Huddle Up: All signs continue to point to Gesicki having a sizeable role in the offense. The rookie isn't a complete package at the position, but he is ready to contribute as a receiver immediately. He is a TE2 with a bunch of upside.

    Miami Dolphins TE Mike Gesicki said his best attributes right now are 'scoring touchdowns in the red zone' and making contested catches. 'That's one of reasons I was picked where I was,' Gesicki said.

    Huddle Up: Gesicki isn't ready to contribute as a blocker, but he should make an immediate impact as a receiver. His potential in the red zone makes him worth grabbing as a TE2.

  • Posted: 4/28/2018 2:13pm ET

    Miami Dolphins TE Mike Gesicki has a good chance to start as a rookie since the team released TE Julius Thomas earlier this offseason.

    Huddle Up: Owners should keep an eye on the situation to see if Gesicki can win the job during training camp. He should have a solid role in the passing game this season and could be a No. 2 fantasy tight end in most leagues.

  • Posted: 4/27/2018 9:54pm ET

    Miami Dolphins TE Mike Gesicki needs to improve as an in-line blocker, according to general manager Chris Grier, but Grier said it is normal for tight ends with big frames to need time to develop that part of their game.

    Huddle Up: Gesicki may have his snaps limited while he develops as a blocker, but that shouldn't stop him from using his size and athleticism to cause havoc in the red zone. He'll be worth a look as a TE2.

  • Posted: 4/27/2018 4:50pm ET

    The Miami Dolphins selected Penn State TE Mike Gesicki with the 42nd overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft Friday, April 27.

    Huddle Up: Gesicki should have a solid role in the passing game as a rookie. He can be at least a No. 2 tight end in most leagues this season.
