Jay Cutler - QBPosted 11/24/17 5:48am ET
Miami Dolphins QB Jay Cutler (concussion) is expected to clear the concussion protocol Friday, Nov. 24, or Saturday, Nov. 25, and start in Week 12 against the New England Patriots.
Huddle Up: Cutler has a great matchup, but we've really seen very little from him to make him worthy of a spot start unless you're in dire straits at the position.
Jay Cutler - QBPosted 11/23/17 1:00pm ET
Miami Dolphins QB Jay Cutler (concussion) was limited in practice Thursday, Nov. 23.
Huddle Up: Assuming Cutler doesn't regress over the next couple of days, one figures he would start in Week 12. Cutler has an amazing matchup versus the New England Patriots, but his erratic play puts him in QB2 territory.
Jay Cutler - QBPosted 11/22/17 1:29pm ET
Miami Dolphins QB Jay Cutler (concussion) did not practice Wednesday, Nov. 22, as he remains in the league's mandated concussion protocol.
Huddle Up: The clock is ticking and it is likely to run out on Cutler's chances to start this weekend in New England. Look for Matt Moore to be under center. The change wouldn't really affect the fantasy appeal of Miami's receivers in the least.
Jay Cutler - QBPosted 11/20/17 9:21am ET
Miami Dolphins QB Jay Cutler (concussion) is in the concussion protocol Monday, Nov. 20, and that he's still the starter when healthy, according to head coach Adam Gase.
Huddle Up: Cutler (or Matt Moore) wouldn't be a good start against the New England Patriots in Week 12. Cutler has QB2 value in double-QB leagues. Monitor his status through the week.
Kenny Stills - WRPosted 11/19/17 5:04am ET
Miami Dolphins WR Kenny Stills (back) is expected to play in Week 11's game versus the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Huddle Up: Stills was listed as questionable on the injury report due to minor back spasms suffered during practice Thursday, Nov. 16. He has at least five receptions and 65 receiving yards in three of his last four games and merits consideration as a flex option in most fantasy formats.
Jarvis Landry - WRPosted 11/19/17 8:04am ET
Miami Dolphins WR Jarvis Landry, whose current contract expires at the end of this season, is believed to be seeking a five-year deal worth at least $65 million. If the Dolphins decide to use the franchise tag to keep him, he will earn $16 million in 2018.
Huddle Up: Although the Dolphins value the 24-year-old Landry's skills, it is uncertain if they are willing to pay such a hefty price for his services. He has 61 receptions for 472 yards and five touchdowns through nine games this year and should be viewed as a high-end WR2 in PPR fantasy formats.
Julius Thomas - TEPosted 11/19/17 7:50am ET
The Miami Dolphins are likely to cut TE Julius Thomas during the offseason in order to clear up $6.6 million in salary cap space for 2018, barring an incredible final two months of the 2017 season.
Huddle Up: The 29-year-old Thomas has 25 receptions for 260 yards and two touchdowns through nine games this year. He shouldn't be owned outside of deeper seasonal fantasy leagues.
Kenny Stills - WRPosted 11/19/17 8:56am ET
Miami Dolphins WR Kenny Stills (back) is officially active for the team's Week 11 game.
Huddle Up: Stills has been playing well over the last several games and should receive a decent amount of targets against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He can be considered a No. 3 receiver or a flex option in all fantasy leagues.
Damien Williams - RBPosted 11/19/17 9:42am ET
Miami Dolphins RB Damien Williams will be the starting running back for Week 11's game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Huddle Up: Williams will get the starting nod this afternoon even though he has clearly been outplayed by Kenyan Drake recently. Both players have eight receptions over the last two weeks but Williams has 16 carries for 33 rushing yards while Drake has 16 carries for 151 rushing yards and one touchdown in that stretch. Drake should still receive enough touches today to be worthy of consideration as a RB2 or flex option in all fantasy formats, while Williams should be viewed as nothing more than a flex option in PPR leagues only.
Jay Cutler - QBPosted 11/19/17 11:55am ET
Miami Dolphins QB Jay Cutler (head) left the team's Week 11 game early and is being evaluated for a concussion.
Huddle Up: Owners will need to keep an eye on the situation to see if Cutler will have go through the concussion protocol. Matt Moore will take over as the starting quarterback as long as Cutler is sidelined but is only a No. 2 fantasy quarterback.
DeVante Parker - WRPosted 11/19/17 5:39pm ET
Miami Dolphins WR DeVante Parker finished with four catches for 26 yards on nine targets in Week 11 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Huddle Up: The Dolphins were trying to get him the ball but it just wasn't working out. At the end, Kenny Stills and Jarvis Landry easily outproduced the oft-injured receiver. Parker remains nothing more than a WR4 or flex option in deeper fantasy leagues heading into Week 12 at New England.
Julius Thomas - TEPosted 11/19/17 5:38pm ET
Miami Dolphins TE Julius Thomas posted four receptions for 30 yards in Week 11 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Huddle Up: Thomas has enjoyed his most productive stretch of the season over the past three games, hauling in 12 balls for 122 yards and two touchdowns on 17 targets. He is still more of a low-end TE1 in most fantasy leagues of 12 or more yards, and it remains to be seen if he'll have the same rapport with Matt Moore as he did with Jay Cutler, should the latter be sidelined due to concussion.
Jarvis Landry - WRPosted 11/19/17 5:38pm ET
Miami Dolphins WR Jarvis Landry racked up six receptions for 95 yards and a touchdown on a game-high 11 receptions in Week 11 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He did lose a fumble in this one.
Huddle Up: Sure, Kenny Stills outshined him in yardage and production in this one, but Landry has now visited the end zone in three straight games, and six of his past seven outings while posting five catches or more in each contest this season. He is a fantastic fantasy option, particularly in PPR leagues. The Dolphins meet the Patriots in Week 12 on the road.
Kenny Stills - WRPosted 11/19/17 5:37pm ET
Miami Dolphins WR Kenny Stills posted seven receptions for 180 yards and a touchdown on eight targets in Week 11 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Huddle Up: Stills jelled nicely with Matt Moore once he replaced the injured Jay Cutler and the two were on the same page all afternoon. The receiver will look to continue the good work into New England in Week 12, but he should still be treated as more of a WR3 or WR4 in most fantasy leagues of 12 or more teams.
Kenyan Drake - RBPosted 11/19/17 5:37pm ET
Miami Dolphins RB Kenyan Drake ran seven times for four yards in Week 11 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and he added one reception for 10 yards on two targets.
Huddle Up: Drake went nowhere, while Damien Williams ripped off a 69-yard run in this one, finishing with 102 yards from scrimmage. These two will continue to jockey for touches in Adam Gase's backfield, and Williams easily won the battle in Week 11. Next up is a trip to meet the Patriots in Week 12.
Damien Williams - RBPosted 11/19/17 5:36pm ET
Miami Dolphins RB Damien Williams carried 10 times for 78 yards in Week 11 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and he added one reception for 24 yards on his only target.
Huddle Up: The rushing numbers are skewed a bit, as one of his runs was good for 69 yards and then he had nine yards on his other nine attempts. Still, it was much better than Kenyan Drake, who was held to four rushing yards on seven carries. The battle for the top RB spot in Miami continues, and Williams easily won this round.
Matt Moore - QBPosted 11/19/17 5:35pm ET
Miami Dolphins QB Matt Moore completed 17 of his 28 pass attempts for 282 yards, one touchdown and no interceptions in Week 11 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Huddle Up: Moore came on for the injured Jay Cutler and moved the offense nicely, posting a 106.5 quarterback rating. If Cutler is unable to return in Week 12 it would be Moore leading the offense into New England.
Kenny Stills - WRPosted 11/17/17 1:25pm ET
Miami Dolphins WR Kenny Stills (back) did not participate in practice Friday, Nov. 17, and is listed as questionable for Week 11.
Huddle Up: Stills may be a game-time decision for Week 11, so owners will need to check the inactive list to determine his status. He has played well over the last several weeks but will be a risky option because of the injury. Owners will need other options available in case Stills is ruled out.
Jarvis Landry - WRPosted 11/17/17 1:32pm ET
Miami Dolphins WR Jarvis Landry (chest) fully participated in practice Friday, Nov. 17, and is not on the injury report for Week 11.
Huddle Up: Landry has been a popular target for the Dolphins quarterbacks over the last month and has five touchdowns in the last six games. He should be a solid No. 2 receiver in all leagues against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers this week.
Damien Williams - RBPosted 11/16/17 10:12am ET
Miami Dolphins RBs Kenyan Drake and Damien Williams will continue to split touches, according to offensive coordinator Clyde Christensen.
Huddle Up: Drake has earned the lead role in Miami's backfield, but the Dolphins aren't giving it to him yet. Not only is Drake a bigger playmaker, Williams has only averaged 3.1 yards per carry in his career. The former is a solid RB2 play in a great matchup this week. The latter is more of a PPR flex.
Kenny Stills - WRPosted 11/16/17 2:10pm ET
Miami Dolphins WR Kenny Stills (back) was limited during practice Thursday, Nov. 16.
Huddle Up: Stills was added to the injury report Thursday, so owners will need to keep an eye on the situation. He has been targeted at least eight times in three of the last four games and has at least 65 yards in each of those games. He could be a flex option in some leagues if he is active for Week 11.
Jarvis Landry - WRPosted 11/16/17 2:12pm ET
Miami Dolphins WR Jarvis Landry (chest) fully participated in practice Thursday, Nov. 16.
Huddle Up: Landry should be in uniform in Week 11 as long as he does not suffer a setback over the next few days. He has caught five touchdowns in the last six games and has been targeted at least 10 times in seven of the nine games this season. He should be a No. 2 or No. 3 receiver in all fantasy leagues.
DeVante Parker - WRPosted 11/16/17 6:20pm ET
Miami Dolphins WR DeVante Parker is not playing with the same 'edge' mentally since returning from an ankle injury, according to offensive coordinator Clyde Christensen. 'We have to get him right back to that level,' Christensen said. 'He still could do some great things before this year is over and he could make it into a heck of a season.'
Huddle Up: Parker has actually put up decent numbers, but injuries have limited him to five games. He could be a WR3 in a favorable matchup against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 11, but his week-to-week availability is a constant concern.
Damien Williams - RBPosted 11/16/17 6:57pm ET
Miami Dolphins RB Damien Williams will continue to split carries with RB Kenyan Drake, according to offensive coordinator Clyde Christensen.
Huddle Up: Williams has managed just 33 yards on 16 carries the last two games while Drake has rushed for 151 yards and a touchdown on the same number of carries. Although Williams will remain involved, Drake is the only Miami back worth starting right now.
Damien Williams - RBPosted 11/16/17 6:49pm ET
Miami Dolphins RB Kenyan Drake is worthy of more carries, according to offensive coordinator Clyde Christensen, but Christensen said the formula with Drake and RB Damien Williams will not change.
Huddle Up: Although Drake has been the better runner by a wide margin, both he and Williams have received 16 carries each over the last two games. Splitting carries limits Drake's ceiling, but he has done more than enough with his touches to be considered a flex play against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 11.
Jarvis Landry - WRPosted 11/15/17 12:30pm ET
Miami Dolphins WR Jarvis Landry (chest) was a limited practice participant Wednesday, Nov. 15. The Dolphins did not actually practice; this status is an estimation.
Huddle Up: While Landry does not eat up yardage, he does lead the NFL in catches (61). Assuming he is active, Landry possess low-end WR1 to high-end WR2 PPR value in a great matchup versus the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Jay Cutler - QBPosted 11/14/17 12:34pm ET
Miami Dolphins QB Jay Cutler is tied for the second worst yards per completion in the NFL (9.0), although he has only played in eight games this year.
Huddle Up: Cutler's numbers aren't terrible -- he's thrown 12 touchdowns to six interceptions -- but he has had trouble connecting on the deep ball. He remains a backup fantasy quarterback.
Damien Williams - RBPosted 11/13/17 4:43pm ET
Miami Dolphins RB Damien Williams (illness) is listed as the starting running back against the Carolina Panthers in Week 10.
Huddle Up: Williams will share snaps with Kenyan Drake during the game and should be involved in the running and passing game. He can be considered a flex option in point-per-reception leagues but is not a must-start option.
Julius Thomas - TEPosted 11/13/17 9:37pm ET
Miami Dolphins TE Julius Thomas scored a touchdown for the second straight week -- after having none previously in the first seven games -- in the team's Week 10 loss Monday, Nov. 13, versus the Carolina Panthers. He finished the game with two catches for eight yards on five targets.
Huddle Up: Although his stats outside of the touchdown were not pretty, it's still encouraging that Thomas has garnered five or more targets in consecutive games for the first time all season. Clearly, Jay Cutler is looking his way more, and that could vault Thomas back onto the TE1 radar. However, given how disappointing he was prior to the last two weeks, he's still mainly a streaming option in standard formats for now.
Damien Williams - RBPosted 11/13/17 10:06pm ET
Miami Dolphins RB Damien Williams could only manage 19 rushing yards on nine carries in the team's Week 10 loss Monday, Nov. 13, versus the Carolina Panthers. He also had two receptions for 20 yards.
Huddle Up: Williams may have received more carries if the game didn't get so out of hand in the second half, but regardless, he's clearly getting outplayed by teammate Kenyan Drake, who had 82 yards on just seven carries. Thus, it's hard to trust Williams right now in any format, as Drake will probably be receiving more work from here on out.
