Branden Albert - OTPosted 2/19/17 4:20pm ET
Miami Dolphins OT Branden Albert could be traded to the Jacksonville Jaguars in exchange for TE Julius Thomas, according to league sources, and Albert said he wouldn't 'ruffle feathers' if he was traded.
Huddle Up: Thomas was underutilized in Jacksonville, and he has battled injuries throughout his career. However, he also has a couple of strong years under his belt. He is worth grabbing as a TE2 in 2017 in case he returns to form.
Kenny Stills - WRPosted 2/15/17 8:13pm ET
Miami Dolphins impending free-agent WR Kenny Stills is a possible replacement for Washington Redskins impending free-agent WR DeSean Jackson, according to The Washington Post's Mark Bullock.
Huddle Up: Stills is a deep threat in the same vein as D-Jax. At just 24, though, he is entering the prime of his career and has a chance to become a more reliable contributor after his big-play 2016 showing. We have seen flashes from Stills in New Orleans and Miami, but he was a supporting cast member rather than the focal point. While much remains unsettled, his base value is in the low-end WR3 to No. 4 conversation, with an upside of a midrange WR2.
Ryan Tannehill - QBPosted 2/4/17 3:52pm ET
Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill (knee) has reportedly considered stem cell and platelet rich plasma injections on his injured ACL, but a source close to Tannehill though the Miami Herald this week the quarterback's knee is stable.
Huddle Up: Although it is only February, Tannehill's ACL better be stable, as a surgery to repair a torn ACL usually take at least nine months to rehab, which would mean his best-case scenario would be a November return if he needs the surgery. At the moment, however, there's no reason to believe that is the case. Tannehill should return to being a serviceable fantasy QB2 if he returns without incident in 2017.
Jay Ajayi - RBPosted 2/4/17 7:38pm ET
Miami Dolphins RB Jay Ajayi said the 2016 season can be a 'baseline' for his career, and his goal is to have multiple consistent years while increasing his production.
Huddle Up: Ajayi looks locked into the lead role in Miami's backfield, and his job security makes him a low-end RB1 heading into 2017.
Kenny Stills - WRPosted 2/2/17 5:52am ET
Miami Dolphins impending free-agent WR Kenny Stills will be pursued by the Philadelphia Eagles if he becomes a free agent, according to sources.
Huddle Up: Stills had a 42-726-9 line in what was a really good season. Entering his fifth year, he's just going to be 25 years old, and there could be more in the tank. He's more valuable in non-PPR leagues because he has averaged just 41 catches in four years, and he's on the WR3/WR4 apex in most formats.
Ryan Tannehill - QBPosted 1/30/17 5:47am ET
Updating previous reports, Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill (knee) will not require surgery to repair his anterior cruciate ligament, according to sources. Tannehill had an MRI Monday, Jan. 30, to confirm the prognosis.
Huddle Up: Tannehill has been a mediocre quarterback in his five-year career, and he'll be 29 next season. If there were a season for everything to come together, it could be his second season under Adam Gase. He'll be a high-end QB2 in drafts.
Jay Ajayi - RBPosted 1/28/17 10:44am ET
Miami Dolphins RB Jay Ajayi rushed for 420 yards and two touchdowns on 60 carries against the Buffalo Bills this season.
Huddle Up: Ajayi averaged 210 yards and one touchdowns in his two games against the Bills, which helped him be one of the better running backs in the NFL. He will receive most of the work at running back in 2017 and should be considered a No. 1 running back in fantasy leagues.
Kenny Stills - WRPosted 1/28/17 5:20pm ET
Miami Dolphins RB Jay Ajayi said the offense 'reaped the benefits' of having WR Kenny Stills this season. 'It'd be great for us to have him back,' Ajayi said. 'I know he wants to be back. I know the team wants him back. So whatever we need to do to make that happen, hopefully we do that.'
Huddle Up: Stills was a boom-or-bust play this year, but he showed the ability to make big plays, averaging 17.3 yards per catch and scoring a team-high nine touchdowns. Draft him as a WR4 if he re-signs with Miami.
Kenny Stills - WRPosted 1/26/17 7:44am ET
Miami Dolphins impending free-agent WR Kenny Stills will meet with the team at the Senior Bowl.
Huddle Up: Stills led the team with nine TDs last season to go with 42 catches for 726 yards. Stills had 11 TDs in his previous three years combined, which could mean last season's spike was an aberration. Since his counting stats aren't something to rely on, he'll be safer as a WR4 in fantasy.
Ryan Tannehill - QBPosted 1/25/17 2:08pm ET
Miami Dolphins general manager Mike Tannenbaum said the team still has not decided if QB Ryan Tannehill (knee) will need to undergo knee surgery this offseason.
Huddle Up: Owners will need to keep an eye on the situation because Tannehill could miss significant time if he needs major surgery on his knee. The Dolphins probably will make a decision on Tannehill in the near future. He played better as 2016 progressed; think a cheap backup with starting value based on the matchups.
Jay Ajayi - RBPosted 1/25/17 7:04pm ET
Miami Dolphins RB Jay Ajayi has 'just scratch the surface' of his potential, according to a team source.
Huddle Up: Ajayi went from a player left behind by the team in Week 1 due to the way he reacted to Arian Foster being named the starter to a near-unstoppable force once Foster announced his retirement and the offensive line started getting healthy. Ajayi lasted until the fifth round in the 2015 draft due to concern over his knees and that is an issue Miami coaches and fantasy owners need to keep in mind. For now, he's a solid low-end RB1 in fantasy and one of the few running backs with very good job security.
Jarvis Landry - WRPosted 1/24/17 7:05am ET
Miami Dolphins WR Jarvis Landry is entering the final year of his rookie contract in 2017, and he's set to earn $1.1 million.
Huddle Up: Landry posted an image to social media with a caption insinuating he's seeking a new deal. He has had two pretty good seasons in a row in PPR leagues, but four touchdowns in each keep him in the WR2 range in fantasy.
Ryan Tannehill - QBPosted 1/23/17 5:25pm ET
Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill threw for 1,400 yards, eight touchdowns and seven interceptions on the road this season. He threw for 11 touchdowns and five interceptions at home.
Huddle Up: Tannehill showed improvement during the season and was playing well when he suffered his season-ending injury. Tannehill could be asked to throw more in 2017 and should be considered a low-end No. 1 quarterback or a No. 2 quarterback in fantasy leagues.
Jarvis Landry - WRPosted 1/23/17 5:32pm ET
Miami Dolphins WR Jarvis Landry caught 42 passes for 576 yards and two touchdowns at home this season and caught 52 passes for 560 yards and two touchdowns on the road.
Huddle Up: Landry led the team in targets by a wide margin and was a key part of the passing game this season. He will continue to be one of the main part of the offense in 2017 and can be a low-end No. 2 receiver or a No. 3 receiver for fantasy owners.
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.
