Fantasy Impact: The running theme when describing the integral parts of the Miami offense is: How well and how quickly will the offense acclimate to Lazor's new scheme? Clay may prove to be the most versatile player in this offense, and a sneaky PPR play.

As noted earlier: Palm Beach Post… (Charles) Clay has been out two weeks with a knee injury after reportedly re-tweaking it following a recent scope. Coach Joe Philbin today (8/14) said he didn’t know if Clay would be ready for the start of the regular season. “He’s day-to-day,” Philbin said. “We’ll see how it goes.”” (Source: Palm Beach Post )

Fantasy Impact: “Big Play Clay” is looking to build on last season’s 69/759/6 bottom line and this “re-tweaking” setback is somewhat worrisome. When deciding who I am going to draft as my starting TE, I can comfortably pass on Clay at this point. He still holds value for all the reasons we love him, but only at the right price. While I am confident he will return at some point, I would wait to draft my backup TE till late in the game.

Fantasy Impact: Clay is a major part of the Dolphins offense, he is the only tight end on the roster who can stretch the field and be a threat in the passing game. After a huge improvement last year, it seemed that he was on track to improve in the new offense. This setback shouldn't affect his value too much, but does need to be monitored as it could linger through the beginning of the season.

The Patriots were just 19th against fantasy tight ends last year, but the Patriots should be improved this year and Clay is playing on an offense that is not exactly clicking in the passing game.

BALLER MOVE: Target around pick ~130 (Current ADP 156 / TE15) ANALYSIS: The tight end position has long been a shallow one at best. Guys like Graham and Gronk seem to dominate that role on the field, leaving other players in the dust – or so it seems. Guys like that are definitely special, but […]
