Adam Shaheen (knee) placed on season-ending IR

The Dolphins have placed tight end Adam Shaheen on the season-ending IR, ending his sixth NFL season before it begins, as reported by NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport.

Fantasy Impact

Shaheen goes on the injured reserve with the same knee injury that caused him to fail his physical in Houston nixing his trade there last week. The former-Bears second-rounder caught 24 balls for 260 yards and three touchdowns in 28 games for Miami since being acquired via trade in 2020. Shaheen is in the final year of a two-year contract worth $4.85 million and will become an unrestricted free agent in 2023. He is not eligible to return to the Dolphins' active roster but Miami may opt to release him with an injury settlement in the future. Based on the Dolphins’ earlier attempt to trade him, it seems likely his time in Miami has come to an end.

Adam Shaheen fails physical, trade to Texans called off

After being traded to the Texans on Tuesday, Adam Shaheen failed his physical due to a preexisting knee condition, which means he will return to the Dolphins.

Fantasy Impact

Shaheen was originally traded alonside a seventh-round pick for a sixth-round selection, but that trade will no longer go through. The tight end will return to his spot towards the end of the Miami depth chart, where he is not a fantasy option unless some injury or move shakes up the roster. In 55 career games, the 27-year-old has 50 receptions for 509 yards and seven touchdowns.

Adam Shaheen traded to Texans

The Miami Dolphins have traded TE Adam Shaheen and a seventh-round pick to the Houston Texans for a sixth-round pick.

Fantasy Impact

In 55 NFL games with the Dolphins and Bears, the 27-year-old has tallied 50 receptions for 509 yards and seven touchdowns. Shaheen's route to playing time is questionable, with Pharoah Brown and Brevin Jordan ahead of him on the depth chart. However, he has the most experience of the three, so he would be worth a flier in deep TE-premium leagues.

Adam Shaheen (knee) questionable for Week 15

Dolphins tight end Adam Shaheen (knee) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Jets.

Fantasy Impact

Shaheen was limited in practice this week, which is a step in the right direction after he missed the last two games. He has accrued 12 catches and 110 yards so far this season.

Adam Shaheen (knee) has been ruled out for Week 12's matchup

Adam Shaheen has been ruled out for his Week 12 matchup against the Carolina Panthers.

Fantasy Impact

Shaheen plays over 50% of the offensive snaps for the Dolphins usually, although Shaheen isn't typically fantasy relevant week to week, his absence should still lead to a slightly increased workload for Mike Gesicki in the contest
