Jaylen Waddle leads Miami in catches and receiving yards

Dolphins wide receiver Jaylen Waddle caught six of eight targets for 48 yards against the Bills in Week 2. He also returned one punt and fumbled the football.

Fantasy Impact

Waddle led Miami in catches and receiving yards while Will Fuller V (personal matter) remained sidelined. The rookie out of Alabama should continue to get better going forward. He's not far from offering FLEX-range production.

Jaylen Waddle finds end zone in NFL debut

Dolphins rookie receiver Jaylen Waddle hauled in four of six targets for 61 yards and a touchdown during his NFL debut against the Patriots in Week 1.

Fantasy Impact

Waddle showed off his speed and agility while diving for the pylon in the third quarter of Sunday's game. His score gave Miami a lead that it held onto for the remainder of the contest. A lethal chess piece in an up-and-coming offense, Waddle represents a solid FLEX option in leagues of 12 teams or more. He's worth starting when the Dolphins host the Bills next week.

Jaylen Waddle catches three passes in Saturday's preseason game

Dolphins WR Jaylen Waddle caught 3-of-4 targets for 21 yards in the Dolphins' Week 2 preseason game against the Falcons.

Fantasy Impact

The rookie was operating as Tua Tagovailoa's No. 1 wideout in this one. It's a crowded receiving corps, but Waddle offers massive upside in fantasy leagues due to his talent and premium draft capital. It's worth noting that Waddle briefly left this game due to a leg injury, but he later returned.

Jaylen Waddle flashing as an outside receiver during Dolphins camp

Miami Dolphins rookie WR Jaylen Waddle has reportedly been flashing as an outside wide receiver during training camp, per Lindsay Jones.

Fantasy Impact

Waddle was the sixth overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft and has looked effective in jet sweeps and screens. However, the former University of Alabama wideout is still recovering from an ankle injury he suffered early on during his final collegiate season. He managed to haul in 25 receptions for 557 yards and four touchdowns across four games. With the notorious injury history of DeVante Parker and Will Fuller V already flaring up in training camp, Waddle's current rank as the WR47 is an incredible late-round value to seize on. Factor in his previous continuity with Dolphins' second-year quarterback Tua Tagovailoa and Waddle could be a late-round gem that finishes as a WR3 in 2021.

Jaylen Waddle signs rookie contract with Miami Dolphins

The Miami Dolphins signed first-round wide receiver Jaylen Waddle to his rookie contract.

Fantasy Impact

Waddle, the No. 6 overall pick from this year's draft, receives a fully guaranteed deal over four years. The Alabama product will line up in three-wide sets along with Will Fuller and DeVante Parker this season. He's also reunited with his former college quarterback Tua Tagovailoa. Waddle is more exciting in dynasty leagues than he is in redraft formats.
