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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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 ESPN.com.
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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Miami Dolphins QB Tua Tagovailoa described his rookie season as 'below average' during an interview on Mad Dog Sports Radio on Monday, Feb. 1.
Huddle Up: Fans and fantasy owners alike will probably remember the multiple in-game benchings for Ryan Fitzpatrick the most, but it is far too early for anyone to close the book on him being a potential "franchise quarterback." DeVante Parker was about the only weapon the No. 5 overall pick could count on a regular basis and even he was hurt for more than half of the season. Assuming Miami addresses the receiver position and the offensive line this offseason, Tagovailoa could surprise with a full offseason in 2021.

Indianapolis Colts QB Jacoby Brissett will be under consideration to be the starting quarterback in 2021, according to general manager Chris Ballard. 'I don't want to discount Jacoby,' Ballard said. 'We still like Jacoby Brissett and think he's a good player. Let's not take Jacoby out of the mix completely here.'
Huddle Up: Brissett was occasionally a fantasy option when starting 15 games in the 2019 season. He finished with 2,942 passing yards and 18 touchdowns against six interceptions while adding 228 yards and four TDs on the ground. He would be a streaming option in more appealing matchups, but he would likely lower the value of WR Michael Pittman Jr.

Miami Dolphins QB Tua Tagovailoa will remain the team's starting quarterback, according to general manager Chris Greer, who reiterated Tuesday, Jan. 5, that the organization is 'happy with his development.'
Huddle Up: There are far too many people who have already written off Tagovailoa because he didn't enjoy the same kind of instant success that draft classmates Joe Burrow and Justin Herbert did, which is a shame. Among the many things holding him back was dealing with a revolving door of receivers for most of his nine starts - a group that generally created less separation than any other group in the league. Depending on what the Dolphins add on offense this offseason, Tagovailoa could easily be a high-upside QB2 in 2021.

Miami Dolphins RB DeAndre Washington will be an unrestricted free agent this offseason and beat writer Barry Jackson doesn't expect the reserve tailback to be back in 2021.
Huddle Up: Washington and Matt Breida are each unrestricted free agents, but they fell behind Salvon Ahmed and Myles Gaskin for the majority of the backfield work, and the team is likely to look for additions outside of the organization or via the draft instead. Washington won't have any fantasy appeal in 2021, so he can mostly be ignored next time we draft.

Miami Dolphins WR Preston Williams (foot) is working out after undergoing foot surgery in November and is expected to be ready for the 2021 season.
Huddle Up: Williams played well when he was healthy and has a good chance to have a role in the passing game next season. Fantasy players should monitor his progress because he could be an option in most fantasy leagues.
