Miami Dolphins WR Jaylen Waddle caught 10 passes for 70 yards and two touchdowns against the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 6. He was targeted 13 times during the game.
Huddle Up: Waddle is emerging as the top receiver for the Dolphins and has been targeted at last eight times in three of the last five games. He should see a similar workload next week and can be a No. 3 receiver in fantasy leagues.

Miami Dolphins WR Jaylen Waddle had two receptions for 31 yards on six targets in Week 5 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Huddle Up: Waddle had his lowest catch and yardage total of the season. He now hasn't scored since Week 1, and doesn't seem to have the same rapport with Jacoby Brissett than he did with Tua Tagovailoa, which makes sense, since Tua was his college quarterback, too. Waddle and the Dolphins meet the Jaguars in London next Sunday.

Miami Dolphins WR Jaylen Waddle may be the main kick and punt returner for Dolphins after they traded WR Jakeem Grant to the Chicago Bears.
Huddle Up: Waddle is one of the starting receivers for the Dolphins this season but may receive a bigger role on special teams. He has been productive during the early part of the season and can be a No. 3 receiver in fantasy leagues.

Miami Dolphins WR Jaylen Waddle registered three receptions for 33 yards on four targets in Week 4 against the Indianapolis Colts.
Huddle Up: Waddle has at least three receptions in each of his four games so far this season. He is worth a look as a WR5 in PPR leagues, with lesser appeal in standard formats. The Dolphins travel to meet the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 5.

Miami Dolphins WR Jaylen Waddle posted a career-best 12 receptions for 58 yards on 13 targets in Week 3 against the Las Vegas Raiders.
Huddle Up: Waddle averaged just 4.8 yards per reception, but the catch volume was certainly nice for those in PPR fantasy leagues. The Dolphins will host the Indianapolis Colts in Week 4.

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.
