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.

Bargain TE1 compiled 69 receptions, 763 yards and 6 TDs on 102 targets in 2013.

Limited upside, but he's productive and dependable.

Clay has probably seen his ceiling, but he's still pretty good. He should remain a top-15 TE.

Clay was targeted 102 times last season ... 102! Not too many people think of Clay when considering the top tight ends in the league but the former Tulsa star has found a good situation in Miami. The coaching staff likes to get him into great one-on-one matchups against the opposing defense to use his athletic ability in the open field (remember he played running back/fullback/tight end at Tulsa).

Clay had a breakout season in a disappointing offense, tallying 69 receptions for 759 yards and six touchdowns. He has TE1 value, as he is only 25 years old and is playing with a quarterback that is entering his third season.

Clay developed as a major threat for Miami last season, and Lazor should be expected to use his TEs.
Fantasy Team Advice | Aug 10th
Charles Clay quietly had a break-out season for the Dolphins in 2013, finishing as the #8 tight end in PPR leagues. The third-year tight end posted a line of 69/759/6, shattering his second year numbers of 18/212/2. With Clay remaining firmly entrenched as the team’s pass-catching tight end, there is no reason to believe he won't continue to build on his strong 2013.

Charles Clay was solid last year and could push for 100 targets again this season.

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 […]
