Miami Dolphins WR Jaylen Waddle posted a game-high six receptions for 48 yards on eight targets in Week 2 against the Buffalo Bills. He also lost a fumble.
Huddle Up: Waddle did a good job adjusting to backup QB Jacoby Brissett, who entered early for the injured QB Tua Tagovailoa. Waddle is worth a look as a WR4 or flex fantasy option in leagues of 12 or more teams, with more appeal in long-term keeper formats.

Miami Dolphins WR Jaylen Waddle logged four receptions, 61 yards and a touchdown during the team's Week 1 victory over the New England Patriots. Waddle was targeted six times.
Huddle Up: It was a nice start to the 2021 season for Waddle, who was on the receiving end of Tua Tagovailoa's only TD pass of the day and was one of just two players to surpass 30 yards receiving. It's bound to draw more attention to Waddle from fantasy owners, but don't overreact as Week 2 sees the return of Will Fuller from suspension, and that may change Waddle's place in the pecking order. If Waddle is on waivers you might want to snatch him up. Don't be too quick to stick him in your active lineup, though.

Updating a previous report, Miami Dolphins WR Jaylen Waddle (leg) returned to the preseason game Saturday, Aug. 21, after missing some because of a possible leg injury.
Huddle Up: Waddle appears to be fine, but fantasy players should look for any updates after the game. He can be a late round pick in drafts but probably will not be a starting option most weeks.

Miami Dolphins WR Jaylen Waddle (leg) left the preseason game early Saturday, Aug. 21, after suffering an apparent leg injury.
Huddle Up: Fantasy players will need to monitor the situation to see if Waddle will miss an extended period of time. Waddle has the chance to earn a solid role in the passing game. He could be a late round pick in deeper leagues but will be more valuable in keeper leagues.

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 NFL.com.
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 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.

Updating a previous report, Miami Dolphins WR Jaylen Waddle on Friday, May 14, signed a four-year rookie contract worth $27,085,996 with a signing bonus of $17,058,904. Waddle will have a 2021 salary cap figure of $4,924,726.

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.

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.
