Charles Clay led the Dolphins in receptions with a career high of seven for 31 yards in Week 2. He also tied Mike Wallace for a team-high 8 targets. Unfortunately, he was hampered by his knee injury and spent time on the sideline with trainers. He played the latter part of the game at Buffalo wearing a brace. (Source:

Fantasy Impact: Full-point PPR players could offer up a weak smile, but that's about it. Clay was obviously bothered by his knee, and injured knees don't get better while a player continues to force the issue - even with a brace. There are better fantasy options.

Clay made one catch for 18 yards for a third-down conversion, during the opening drive. Clay had missed two previous preseason games tending to a knee injury. (Source:

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.

Joe Philbin said today that he was unsure whether or not Clay would be ready by the start of the regular season. According to Andrew Abramson of the Palm Beach Post, Clay re-tweaked his knee after a recent scope. (Source: Palm Beach Post)

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.

Clay has a nice matchup against the Chiefs, who have allowed the fifth most points to fantasy tight ends this year.

Clay has drawn a tough matchup against a solid Chiefs defense. While he had seven catches last week, it is concerning that he only gained 31 yards on those catches. I'd look for other options for week three due to the matchup and lack of yardage.

Last week's YPA was woeful, but with 13 targets through two weeks Clay has 13 targets and draws the Chiefs who have given up TDs to TEs in each 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 […]
