Fantasy Football Player Notes

2023 Draft Rankings

Tyreek Hill Note

Tyreek Hill showed no decline with the move from Kansas City to South Beach. Hill was the WR3 in fantasy points per game, accumulating five weeks with 140 or more receiving yards. He led the league in deep targets while scoring nine total touchdowns (fourth). Hill amassed a ridiculous 31.6% target share (second-best) while ranking first in yards per route run. If the Dolphins scheme him up more targets in the red zone next season (40th among wide receivers), he could finish as the WR1 overall.

Jaylen Waddle Note

Jaylen Waddle enjoyed an explosive sophomore season as the underneath complement to Tyreek Hill in the Dolphins' high-flying aerial attack. Waddle was the WR12 in fantasy, ranking tenth in YAC, seventh in receiving yards, and 11th in total touchdowns. Waddle was also fourth in yards per route run and third in fantasy points per target. He's an ascending alpha wide receiver who could easily lead the Dolphins in receiving in 2023 if Tyreek Hill shows any signs of slowing down. Invest in second and third-year wide receivers always. This is the way.

Tua Tagovailoa Note

Your willingness to draft Tua Tagovailoa in 2023 will likely depend on your tolerance for risk. Tua proved himself as a passer in 2022, leading all quarterbacks in passer rating (105.5), yards per attempt (8.9) and touchdown percentage (6.3%). But Tua has to be considered a concussion risk after a season in which he twice missed games due to brain injuries. He was knocked unconscious against the Bengals in Week 4 and didn't return until Week 7. He was also placed in the concussion protocol after a Week 16 game against the Packers and missed Miami's final two games. Were it not for concussion concerns. Tua would be drafted as a top-10 quarterback as a talented young passer in an explosive Dolphins offense that features two terrific WRs in Tyreek Hill and Jaylen Waddle. But with the possibility that another concussion could put Tua out of action indefinitely, it seems more sensible to regard Tua as a high-end QB2.

Raheem Mostert Note

The Dolphins opted to bring back Raheem Mostert on a two-year deal ($5.6MM, $2.2MM guaranteed) and also re-sign Jeff Wilson to a 2-year deal worth up to $8.2 million ($2.65MM guaranteed). Miami also drafted speed demon Devon Achane in the 3rd round. His speed element overlaps most with Mostert (a fellow former track star) suggesting Achane's playing time will likely come at the expense of Mostert. However, as the only healthy veteran of the group, expect Mostert to get the Week 1 nod and provide fantasy managers instant RB2 production from the get-go while Achane recovers from his own injury suffered during the preseason.

De'Von Achane Note

Miami is the perfect fit for De'Von Achane; his elite track speed in an outside zone running offense is going to terrify defenses. And it's not too crazy to think Achane can rise the depth chart that currently consists of a 31-year-old injury-prone Raheem Mostert and journeyman Jeff Wilson Jr., who was just placed on IR.

Jeff Wilson Jr. Note

Jeff Wilson was viewed to be a potential starter in the Dolphins offense, but will miss time to start the year after being placed on IR. He will miss at least the first four weeks of the season. That puts Raheem Mostert in the driver's seat to be RB1 opening day, with rookie De'Von Achane breathing down his neck for touches. Wilson should not be drafted in shallow formats, and only in deeper ones that have IR-eligible spots.

Miami Dolphins Note

Miami's defense could be scary good in 2023. Key additions such as defensive coordinator Vic Fangio, cornerback Jalen Ramsey have joined a unit that already has Christian Wilkins, Jaelan Phillips, Bradley Chubb and Xavien Howard. The schedule isn't ideal open the year (at LAC), but a potential shootout could result in a lot of turnover opportunities for this talented unit. This team ranked 29th in takeaways a season ago...a number that should regress in their favor this season.

Jason Sanders Note
Jason Sanders photo 216. Jason Sanders K - (vs . BUF)
Sanders led all kickers in fantasy scoring in 2020, but he's been less prolific the last two years, finishing K21 in 2021 and K14 in 2022. Accuracy has been an issue for Sanders the last two seasons. After hitting only 74.2% of his FG attempts in 2021, he bumped his conversion rate to a barely acceptable 81.3% last year. But if Sanders can get back to the 90% level he reached in 2020 and as a rookie in 2018, he'll likely be among the highest-scoring kickers yet again, as the Miami offense should again be above-average. Another selling point on Sanders is that he plays his home games in South Florida, where the weather is typically cooperative -- especially late in the season, when other kickers often have to deal with cold, windy conditions.
