While you may not be excited about the Dolphins' passing game, it is worth noting that Tannehill posted back to back 4,000 yard seasons before his injury and threw the ball at least 580 times three straight years. Their receiving threats are limited so don't be surprised if the freak athlete, Gesicki makes the most of his starting role.

Mike Gesicki draws high praise from TE coach

Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald report that Mike Gesicki's first-team reps on Sunday were as expected, that is "very good work as a receiver and clearly room for improvement as a blocker." The Dolphins' TE coach Shane Day said of Gesicki, “He’s right on track. He’s really improved this spring. He’s right where I would expect him to be as a rookie.” As a receiver, Day indicated that Gesicki was "as advertised."

Fantasy Impact

This should come as no surprise, but it's reassuring to see that Gesicki is excelling at pass-catching, which is both where he made his name at Penn State, and the avenue to scoring fantasy points. While his blocking may keep him off the field at times, as long as his receiving is good, the Dolphins will find ways to use him. Gesicki could produce a quiet and unsexy back-end TE1 line this year if he gets on the field enough. I love drafting him in TE-premium formats or as a backup late in drafts. It's hard to find TEs with his potential volume in the range he's going in drafts.
