Miami Dolphins WR Preston Williams (foot) was placed on the Physically Unable to Perform list Tuesday, July 27.
Huddle Up: Williams only had an 18-288-4 line, but he was really coming on before succumbing to injury. He had touchdowns in three of his last four games with a 100-yard performance in the mix. Keep tabs on him as a late-round flyer.

Miami Dolphins QB Tua Tagovailoa's 67.9 completion percentage on throws between the numbers ranked 30th among 32 qualified quarterbacks in 2020.
Huddle Up: The Dolphins added plenty of speed to the receiving corps this offseason in the form of Will Fuller and Jaylen Waddle, which should help Tagovailoa boost his numbers across the board in his second season. However, it remains to be seen if he will make a big enough leap to become a weekly fantasy asset. For now, Tagovailoa projects as a QB2 with upside.

Miami Dolphins QB Tua Tagovailoa threw five interceptions during practice Tuesday, June 15. He said the team wanted to be more aggressive in the passing game during drills.
Huddle Up: Tagovailoa is looking to build on his rookie season and has a lot of good pass catchers to work with this season. He probably should be considered a No. 2 fantasy quarterback at this point but has a chance to be a weekly fantasy starter during the season.

Miami Dolphins WR Jaylen Waddle will likely play out of the slot with WR DeVante Parker and WR Will Fuller working as the starting outside receivers, according to Grant Gordon of
Huddle Up: Wherever Waddle lines up, you can expect the Dolphins to try to find a way to put the ball in his hands to utilize his elite speed. He could be a big play-dependent fantasy option as a rookie, but he has enough upside to be worthy of flex consideration in redraft leagues.

Miami Dolphins WR Jaylen Waddle (ankle) has been a full participant during offseason workouts but is still limping because of an ankle injury he suffered last season at Alabama.
Huddle Up: Waddle should be healthy for the start of training camp and likely will have a big role in the passing game as a rookie. Fantasy players can monitor his progress during training camp, but he can be a late round pick in fantasy drafts.

Miami Dolphins QB Tua Tagovailoa is 'definitely more comfortable' and possesses a 'better understanding of how we practice' so far this offseason, according to head coach Brian Flores.
Huddle Up: It's easy to forget that Tagovailoa not only did not have an offseason as a rookie, but he also had a group of receivers that ranked at the bottom in terms of generating separation. The additions of Will Fuller and Jaylen Waddle should rectify the latter problem. Considering he will have a full offseason as the unquestioned starter this time around, Tagovailoa should be a serviceable fantasy QB2 at the very least.
Posted 5/24/2021 5:35 pm GMT
Miami Dolphins WR Jaylen Waddle will have the opportunity to compete for the kick and punt returner job during training camp.
Huddle Up: Waddle likely will have an important role in the passing game during his rookie season, so he may not be used as a returner much. Waddle can be considered at least a No. 4 fantasy receiver and has a chance to become a No. 3 receiver.
Posted 5/24/2021 5:25 pm GMT
Miami Dolphins QB Tua Tagovailoa should play better this upcoming season because he has playing experience in the NFL now and will have a better supporting cast, according to co-offensive coordinator George Godsey.
Huddle Up: Tagovailoa posted 1,814 yards, 11 touchdowns and five interceptions in 10 games as a rookie. He is learning a new offensive but should be able to improve on those stats with a full season as the starter. Fantasy players probably should consider him a No. 2 fantasy quarterback at this point.

Miami Dolphins first-round pick WR Jaylen Waddle (Alabama) signed his four-year, fully guaranteed contract Friday, May 14. Financial terms weren't disclosed, and all first-round picks have an option for a fifth year.
Huddle Up: Waddle has a chance to be a banger of a WR3 by midseason. Keep an eye on him in camp.
Posted 5/02/2021 4:31 pm GMT
Miami Dolphins RB Myles Gaskin is the leading candidate to start at running back for the Dolphins in 2021 since the team did not select a running back early in the draft.
Huddle Up: Gaskin will still need to share playing time with Salvon Ahmed and Malcolm Brown but likely will receive a majority of carries each game. He can be considered a No. 3 fantasy running back if he keeps the starting job.
Posted 5/01/2021 2:24 am GMT
Boston College TE Hunter Long was selected by the Miami Dolphins with the 81st overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft.
Huddle Up: Considered one of the most complete tight ends in the draft, Long could form an effective tandem with Mike Gesicki. However, Long could struggle to post useful fantasy numbers in a Miami offense that has added weapons throughout the offseason.
Posted 4/30/2021 5:09 pm GMT
Miami Dolphins WR Jaylen Waddle, the sixth-overall player drafted Thursday, April 29, has reunited with former Alabama teammate QB Tua Tagovailoa. '(The) chemistry is there for sure,' Waddle said. 'I'm coming to work. I'm sure he is too.'
Huddle Up: Waddle opened the 2020 college season with four games with at least 120 yards receiving before fracturing his ankle and not returning until the national championship game. If Waddle is fully recovered and rediscovers the magic with Tua, he adds an explosive element to the Dolphins' passing attack they've been missing and could settle in as a fantasy WR3.
Posted 4/30/2021 2:35 am GMT
Miami (Fla.) DE Jaelan Phillips was selected by the Miami Dolphins with the 18th overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft.
Huddle Up: Phillips battled injuries throughout his collegiate career, but he average nearly a sack per game when healthy. He could eventually emerge as an IDP sleeper in leagues that value sacks.
Posted 4/04/2021 9:12 pm GMT
Miami Dolphins TE Mike Gesicki could be a candidate to be traded if the Dolphins decide to select Florida TE Kyle Pitts in the 2021 NFL Draft, in the opinion of The Miami Herald's Barry Jackson.
Huddle Up: Gesicki posted 703 yards and six touchdowns this season and would be a starter no matter where he plays in 2021. Fantasy players should consider him a low-end No. 1 fantasy tight end.
Posted 4/04/2021 9:00 pm GMT
Miami Dolphins RB Myles Gaskin likely will be the starting running back or No. 2 running back in 2021 depending on if the team selects a running back early in the draft.
Huddle Up: Gaskin posted decent numbers last season and likely will see a solid amount of touches even if he does not start. He can be a No. 3 running back if he starts but can still be rostered even if he is the main backup.
Posted 4/02/2021 9:02 pm GMT
Miami Dolphins WR DeVante Parker could be a possible trade option this offseason if the team receives the right offer and if they select a receiver with the sixth overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft, in the opinion of NBC Sports' Peter King.
Huddle Up: Parker has been the No. 1 receiver for the Dolphins over the last few seasons and would continue to be a main option in the passing game. He will start no matter where he plays in 2021 and should be a No. 2 or No. 3 fantasy receiver.
Posted 3/18/2021 8:01 pm GMT
Free-agent WR Will Fuller (Texans) agreed to terms on a one-year contract with the Miami Dolphins Thursday, March 18, according to a source. Financial terms were not disclosed.
Huddle Up: Fuller likely will be the starter opposite DeVante Parker next season and should be a deep threat for the Dolphins. He can be a No. 2 or No. 3 receiver in fantasy leagues.
Posted 3/18/2021 7:46 pm GMT
Miami Dolphins RB Malcolm Brown said the team has not told him what his role will be next season but expects things to be clearer once training camp begins.
Huddle Up: Brown was part of a committee with the Los Angeles Rams this season and likely will be sharing time with multiple back in Miami. Fantasy players can monitor the situation during the offseason because Brown can be a No. 3 or No. 4 fantasy back depending in his role.
Posted 3/17/2021 9:26 pm GMT
Free-agent WR Robert Foster (Washington) signed an undisclosed contract with the Miami Dolphins Wednesday, March 17.
Huddle Up: Foster should get the opportunity to compete for a meaningful role in the thin Dolphins pass-catching corps. He had 541 yards and three touchdowns in 13 games with the Buffalo Bills in 2018. He could be worth a late-round flier in early drafts.
Posted 3/16/2021 10:20 pm GMT
Los Angeles Rams impending free-agent RB Malcolm Brown plans to sign with the Miami Dolphins, according to a source Tuesday, March 16. Details weren't immediately disclosed.
Huddle Up: Brown will enter the mix for carries out of the Miami backfield but doesn't project as a lead back. He can be a depth option in early fantasy drafts until the timeshare is sorted out.
Posted 3/11/2021 6:26 pm GMT
Miami Dolphins QB Tua Tagovailoa had an up-and-down rookie season in 2020, but head coach Brian Flores said recently he's excited for Year 2 and downplayed speculation that the Dolphins could be eyeing another young QB in the draft. 'My reaction is I'm excited to work with Tua,' Flores said. '... That's where my interests are, that's where my excitement is. Again like I said, he's a talented player. We, here, believe in developing players at all positions and I think with an offseason, with OTAs, with more reps, more repetitions, like any player, I think they develop and get better.'
Huddle Up: Tua certainly had his peaks and valleys, was replaced by veteran Ryan Fitzpatrick in a couple key situations and averaged only 18.2 fantasy points per outing. He will certainly need to step things up in Year 2 just to get into the fantasy QB2 conversation.
Posted 3/08/2021 1:05 am GMT
Houston Texans impending free-agent WR Will Fuller's 'downfield speed' could make him an appealing target for a Cincinnati Bengals offense that ranked 31st in the NFL with 470 deep passing yards in 2020, according to Seth Galina of Pro Football Focus.
Huddle Up: Health has been a constant issue, but Fuller his been a big-play weapon and a touchdown machine when on the field. Fuller would add another dimension to the Cincinnati passing attack, but with Tyler Boyd and Tee Higgins already in the mix, Fuller would probably be more a high-upside WR3 than a high-volume, go-to option.
Posted 3/07/2021 2:53 am GMT
Miami Dolphins WR Preston Williams (foot) would likely slide to the No. 3 receiver role if the Dolphins add Alabama WR DeVonta Smith or Louisiana State WR Ja'Marr Chase in the first round of the 2021 NFL Draft, according to Cameron Wolfe of
Huddle Up: Williams has flashed some upside, but injuries have limited him to eight games in each of his first two seasons. The addition of an elite receiver prospect would make steady production hard to come by for Williams, especially with Tua Tagovailoa still developing as a quarterback.
Posted 2/25/2021 8:53 pm GMT
Houston Texans impending free-agent WR Will Fuller will not receive the franchise tag this offseason, according to sources.
Huddle Up: Fuller should receive interest from multiple teams if he hits the free-agent market. He posted 879 yards and eight touchdowns this season and is valuable because of his big play ability. He could be a No. 2 or No. 3 fantasy receiver depending on his situation.
Posted 2/16/2021 5:14 pm GMT
Miami Dolphins PK Jason Sanders agreed to a five-year, $22 million deal with $10 million guaranteed Tuesday, Feb. 16.
Huddle Up: Sanders tied with Daniel Carlson and Younghoe Koo for most fantasy points in standard leagues. He'll remain among the top-five kickers in next year's drafts, but there is some bust potential if the offense doesn't upgrade.
Posted 2/15/2021 3:48 am GMT
Miami Dolphins RB Myles Gaskin caught 41 of his 47 targets in 2020, and his 9.5 yards per reception were tied for the most among running backs with 20 or more receptions.
Huddle Up: Gaskin emerged as Miami's lead back in his second season, piling up 972 yards from scrimmage in 10 games. The Dolphins could be in the market for a bigger back to handle early-down work, but Gaskin should at least retain a solid role in the passing attack in 2021 and provide some PPR value.
Posted 2/14/2021 3:04 am GMT
Miami Dolphins TE Mike Gesicki's 13.3 yards per reception ranked third among tight ends with at least 40 receptions in 2020.
Huddle Up: Gesicki's athleticism is finally translating to production on the field, and his 53 receptions, 703 yards and six touchdowns were all career highs. There are questions about Miami's quarterback situation, but Gesicki should be able to finish as a TE1 in 2021.
Posted 2/12/2021 2:54 am GMT
Miami Dolphins QB Tua Tagovailoa ranked 35th out of 35 qualified quarterbacks in yards per attempt (6.2) when targeting wide receivers this season.
Huddle Up: Injuries to the Miami receiving corps likely didn't help matters, but Tagovailoa has to become more comfortable pushing the ball down the field if he is going to succeed at the NFL level. Despite a lackluster rookie campaign, he should be considered a QB2 with upside heading into 2021.
Posted 2/10/2021 4:11 am GMT
Miami Dolphins QB Tua Tagovailoa suffered from a receiving corps that ranked among the worst in the league in both yards after catch and separation gained from opposing defensive backs when they ran routes. Additionally, Miami recorded the sixth-most drops in the league, including 18 on Tagovailoa's 290 pass attempts.
Huddle Up: The Dolphins averaged just 4.4 yards after the catch as a team in 2021 - good for 30th in the league. Tagovailoa also wasn't given much room for error either, as his top two targets (DeVante Parker and Mike Gesicki) posted two of the worst marks in the league in average yards of separation (1.7 and 2.0, respectively). That forced Tagovailoa to throw into tight windows on 20.3 percent of his throws - the third-highest mark of any quarterback who made eight starts. Don't be surprised if last spring's No. 5 overall pick is a lot better in Year 2 if he gets a full offseason and some receiving help in the draft.
