DeVante Parker - WRPosted 4/18/19 10:01am ET
MIami Dolphins WR DeVante Parker says he's happy the Dolphins retained him, saying he's fully healthy and ready for 'a fresh start.'
Huddle Up: Parker is coming off his worst season yet with 24 catches for 309 yards and a TD on 47 targets in 11 games and belongs off the main fantasy radar in the majority of leagues until he shows otherwise.
Kalen Ballage - RBPosted 4/18/19 2:34pm ET
Miami Dolphins RB Kalen Ballage said he hopes to compete with RB Kenyan Drake for the starting job during training camp.
Huddle Up: Ballage rushed for 191 yards and one touchdown on 36 carries last season but should have a bigger role in 2019. He should see a decent amount of carries even if he does not win the starting job and could be a No. 4 running back in fantasy leagues.
Kenyan Drake - RBPosted 4/17/19 6:43pm ET
Miami Dolphins RB Kenyan Drake is entering the fourth and final season of his rookie contract, and there are no contract extensions talks at the moment, according to a league source.
Huddle Up: Drake might head into the season with a chip on his shoulder, and that could be a good thing for prospective fantasy owners. He has averaged 4.7 yards per rush over the first three seasons of his career, and he could be tied with Ezekiel Elliott and Adrian Peterson, behind only Jamaal Charles, if he had enough carries to qualify. He has a new slate with Brian Flores at the helm, so he enters as a nice fantasy sleeper in 2019.
Ryan Tannehill - QBPosted 3/15/19 11:48am ET
Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill was traded to the Tennessee Titans for an undisclosed return on Friday, March 15. The Titans subsequently signed him to a one-year undisclosed contract.
Huddle Up: He'll enter 2019 as a backup, but it's a solid landing spot for Tannehill in that he is in many ways a mirror image of Marcus Mariota, who struggles to stay healthy - like Tannehill. There will be no quarterback controversy in Tennessee and Tannehill will not be worthy of fantasy consideration for as long as Mariota is playing, but the Titans' offense should at least be functional if/when Mariota goes down.
DeVante Parker - WRPosted 3/12/19 9:40am ET
Updating a previous report, Miami Dolphins WR DeVante Parker and the team are closing in a on two-year, $13 million contract extension that will include a number of incentives.
Huddle Up: A low-risk, high-reward deal is ideal for Parker, who at age 26 is still brimming with potential.
DeVante Parker - WRPosted 3/12/19 9:28am ET
Miami Dolphins WR DeVante Parker was close Tuesday, March 12, to agreeing on a new two-year deal with the team, according to a league source.
Huddle Up: Parker has been a perennial fantasy tease and slipped to new career lows last season in games played (11) targets (47), receptions (24) and yards (309). Perhaps a new coaching regime will light a fire under the underachieving first-round pick, but the Dolphins' QB situation remains far from settled so it's best to steer clear outside of last-round, shot-in-the-dark picks in drafts.
Danny Amendola - WRPosted 3/11/19 5:18am ET
Free-agent WR Danny Amendola (Dolphins) agreed to a one-year deal worth as much as $5.75 million with the Detroit Lions Monday, March 11.
Huddle Up: Amendola lands in a spot where he might pose WR5 value, but he's a wildly inconsistent fantasy asset.
Ryan Tannehill - QBPosted 3/11/19 11:02am ET
Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill may find an interested suitor in the New York Jets - and former Dolphins head coach Adam Gase - if Tannehill is eventually released as expected, according to ESPN's Chris Mortensen.
Huddle Up: It's easy to connect the dots given the history between Gase and Tannehill, but it also makes sense considering the Jets may not be willing to wait and see if Josh McCown - who will turn 40 this summer - will return for another year as a backup. Sam Darnold is the present and future in New York, so Tannehill will be a clear backup if he follows Gase to the Big Apple.
Frank Gore - RBPosted 3/11/19 1:38pm ET
Miami Dolphins impending free-agent RB Frank Gore agreed to terms on a one-year, $2 million deal with the Buffalo Bills Monday, March 11, according to a source.
Huddle Up: Gore, of course, will be splitting time with fellow veteran LeSean McCoy. Look for Gore to primarily see short-yardage and goal-line carries. He's an iron man, but don't draft Gore as more than a fourth reserve.
Danny Amendola - WRPosted 3/8/19 1:07pm ET
Miami Dolphins WR Danny Amendola was released Friday, March 8, according to a source.
Huddle Up: Amendola is coming off a decent 2018 season with 575 yards and one touchdown in 15 games. He should receive interest from teams looking for a slot receiver and could be a late-round option in point-per-reception leagues.
Danny Amendola - WRPosted 3/8/19 1:25pm ET
Free-agent WR Danny Amendola (Dolphins) is believed to be interested in signing with the New England Patriots this offseason, according to The Athletic's Jeff Howe.
Huddle Up: Amendola played with the Patriots for several seasons before he decided to sign with the Miami Dolphins, so he is familiar with the Patriots. He would be a No. 3 or No. 4 fantasy receiver next season if he joins New England.
DeVante Parker - WRPosted 3/2/19 10:52am ET
Miami Dolphins WR DeVante Parker's fifth-year option for 2019 is expected to be rescinded, which would make him an unrestricted free-agent this offseason. The team would save $9.38 million if Parker is cut.
Huddle Up: Parker has struggled with injuries over the last few seasons but likely will receive interest from multiple teams if he is available this offseason. He could be a late-round pick in fantasy drafts depending on his situation.
Ryan Tannehill - QBPosted 3/2/19 10:47am ET
Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill has been made available to other teams in a trade, but the Dolphins have made most of the contact with teams at this point, according to a source.
Huddle Up: Tannehill will not return to the Dolphins next season, but the team is hoping to receive some compensation for him instead of cutting him. He probably will not be able to find a starting job this offseason and can be avoided in fantasy leagues.
Kenny Stills - WRPosted 2/21/19 6:39pm ET
Miami Dolphins WR Kenny Stills would make sense as a trade target for the Cleveland Browns to address a need for a deep threat in the passing game, according to Bill Barnwell of ESPN.com.
Huddle Up: Consistency has been an issue for Stills throughout his career, but he has scored at least six touchdowns in each of the last three seasons and has the speed to stretch the field. He'd be worth a late-round pick if he ended up with the Browns.
Albert Wilson - WRPosted 2/19/19 10:19am ET
Miami Dolphins WR Albert Wilson is one of the best bets to remain with the team out of a wide receiver contingent that appears headed for upheaval, and new position coach Karl Dorrell has quickly become a fan. 'He was pretty dynamic wasn't he?' Dorrell said recently of Wilson. 'He's a very unique player. I'm really excited about him. .... I hear he's doing a really good job with the recovery process but you could tell when he was on the field, he had a number of ways to affect the defense and to make the defense really pay attention to where he is and things like that.'
Huddle Up: A hip injury cost Wilson all but seven games in 2018 but he still led the team with his 15-yard-per-reception average and finished third on the squad with his four receiving TDs. Wilson is a definite fantasy WR sleeper to keep an eye on this summer.
Kalen Ballage - RBPosted 2/18/19 4:25pm ET
Miami Dolphins RB Kalen Ballage was impressive during his rookie season but still has room to grow, according to running backs coach Eric Studesville. 'He's a big, physical body,' Studesville said. 'He can run. He's athletic. He's got a lot of growth to do as far as seeing and recognizing things. His work ethic is tremendous. He's got speed for a big man.'
Huddle Up: Ballage rushed for 191 yards and one touchdown in limited playing time this past season but could be a contender for the starting running back job in 2019. He has a chance to be a No. 3 or No. 4 fantasy running back depending on his role.
Frank Gore - RBPosted 2/18/19 5:05pm ET
Miami Dolphins running backs coach Eric Studesville said he is not sure if impending free-agent RB Frank Gore will receive a contract offer from the Dolphins this offseason.
Huddle Up: Gore had a solid season in 2018 with 722 yards but failed to record a rushing touchdown. It is not known if he will be able to find a starting job this offseason but would be a good No. 2 running back for a team. He will have some fantasy value in standard leagues if he finds a good situation.
Danny Amendola - WRPosted 2/8/19 10:41am ET
Miami Dolphins WR Danny Amendola may be released in Miami due to his $6 million salary, and a return to the New England Patriots would be a likely destination if that happens.
Huddle Up: Amendola did lead the team in targets (79), receptions (59) and receiving yards (575) this past season after coming over from the Patriots, but the Dolphins appear ready to tear things down and rebuild, so Amendola indeed might be looking for work.
DeVante Parker - WRPosted 2/8/19 10:32pm ET
The Philadelphia Eagles might be interested in Miami Dolphins WR DeVante Parker if he is released, in the opinion of Philly Voice's Jimmy Kempski, who notes that the team reportedly discussed acquiring Parker from Miami at last year's trade deadline.
Huddle Up: Parker has been mostly disappointing in four seasons with the Dolphins, but at just 26 years old and with ample physical ability, the former first-round pick could quickly become a person of interest were he to land in the right situation.
Ryan Tannehill - QBPosted 1/31/19 9:28pm ET
Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill is expected to be released during the offseason, according to the Miami Herald's Armando Salguero, who believes the chances of the team finding a trading partner for Tannehill are 'not great' due to his contract.
Huddle Up: It's been expected that Tannehill would be gone, but it now appears the Dolphins won't recoup anything of value in return. Tannehill was once considered a QB on the rise, but injuries and ineffectiveness have made his future a giant question mark. If he lands in an advantageous spot he might be worth a late-round flier, though even that might be overly ambitious.
Ryan Tannehill - QBPosted 1/24/19 11:58am ET
Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill could face a contract restructure in the form of a pay cut this offseason, but the Dolphins still face $13.4 million in dead cap with Tannehill, according to Spotrac. He's a candidate to be released or traded.
Huddle Up: When Tannehill hasn't been injured he's largely been a disappointment. It would be understandable for Miami to lower his salary. No matter how much money Tannehill makes, he can be avoided in leagues with traditional lineups.
Albert Wilson - WRPosted 1/22/19 10:52pm ET
Miami Dolphins WR Albert Wilson (hip) is on schedule with his recovery from an October hip injury that landed him on IR and could be at full speed when the team's offseason workout program begins in April.
Huddle Up: After four largely nondescript seasons in Kansas City, Wilson flashed some playmaking ability before getting injured against the Lions. There are far too many variables in Miami for an accurate read on Wilson's fantasy prospects for 2019, but he did enough last year to warrant your attention.
Ryan Tannehill - QBPosted 1/12/19 1:18pm ET
Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill is one of the quarterbacks the Jacksonville Jaguars are considering pursuing this offseason, according to sources.
Huddle Up: Tannehill is expected to be traded or released this offseason, but it is not known how many teams may have interest. He has been limited to 24 games over the last two seasons because of injuries and probably would only be a No. 2 fantasy quarterback if he starts for the Jaguars in 2019.
Ryan Tannehill - QBPosted 1/4/19 4:51pm ET
Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill is expected to be shopped to other teams this offseason.
Huddle Up: Tannehill is not expected to return to the Dolphins next season and likely will be released if the team is not able to trade him. He could find a starting job next year but likely will be no more than a No. 2 fantasy quarterback.
Ryan Tannehill - QBPosted 12/31/18 4:39pm ET
Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill is expected to be released or traded this offseason.
Huddle Up: Tannehill has held to under 200 yards in each of his last three games and seven of the 11 games this season. He may be able to find a starting job with another team but should only be a low-end No. 2 fantasy quarterback in leagues next season.
DeVante Parker - WRPosted 12/31/18 4:31pm ET
Miami Dolphins WR DeVante Parker is expected to be released this offseason. The team would save $9.4 million salary cap space if they cut Parker.
Huddle Up: Parker probably would receive interest from several teams if available this offseason but may not be able to find a starting job. He has the potential to be a solid receiver and could have fantasy value depending on his next team.
Ryan Tannehill - QBPosted 12/30/18 1:24pm ET
Miami Dolphins WR Kenny Stills had three grabs for 27 yards on seven targets in Week 17 against the Buffalo Bills and he tossed a three-yard touchdown back to QB Ryan Tannehill.
Huddle Up: Stills had rather erratic production this season, finishing up with 37 grabs, 553 yards and six scores. He has a ton of potential, but probably needs an upgrade in quarterback play to see more fantasy value.
Danny Amendola - WRPosted 12/30/18 1:22pm ET
Miami Dolphins WR Danny Amendola finished with four grabs for 26 yards on five targets in Week 17 against the Buffalo Bills.
Huddle Up: Amendola finished his first season in Miami with 59 grabs, 575 yards and just one touchdown. The 33-year-old will head into the 2019 season as a decent WR4 in PPR fantasy formats, with much lesser value in standard play.
Kenyan Drake - RBPosted 12/30/18 1:18pm ET
Miami Dolphins RB Kenyan Drake ran 11 times for 43 yards in Week 17 against the Buffalo Bills and he added five grabs for 52 yards on five targets.
Huddle Up: Drake and Kalen Ballage split the carries down the middle, and that could be a recurring theme heading into the 2019 season barring any offseason personnel additions or draft picks. Drake could be a nice PPR fantasy option next season if he and Ballage are the top two dogs on the block in Miami.
Kalen Ballage - RBPosted 12/30/18 1:16pm ET
Miami Dolphins RB Kalen Ballage rushed 12 times for 47 yards in Week 17 against the Buffalo Bills.
Huddle Up: Ballage had his chance at more work down the stretch and he handled himself well. It's likely be and Kenyan Drake head into 2019 as the top two backs barring any additional personnel moves or draft picks in the offseason. Ballage could be quite a fantasy sleeper if things stay the way they are in the Miami backfield.
