Miami Dolphins

AFC East

Fantasy Impact: Tagovailoa finished the season on a down note by tossing three interceptions against the Bills in Week 17. Still, he showed some flashes upside and might've been held back a bit by his supporting cast. It sounds as if Miami plans to build around Tua, rather than instantly look to replace him. The franchise holds the No. 3 overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft thanks to a trade with the Houston Texans.

The Miami Dolphins D/ST gave up seven touchdowns, including a punt return, in a 56-26 blowout loss to the Buffalo Bills in Week 17.

Fantasy Impact: The Dolphins defense had problems containing the Bills on the ground and through the air, giving up a total of 466 yards on Sunday. Miami has a solid defensive unit as displayed throughout the entirety of the 2020 season and will look to continue revamping it heading into the offseason.

Jason Sanders converted two field goal attempts and two PAT attempts in a 56-26 loss to the Buffalo Bills in Week 17.

Fantasy Impact: Sanders finished the 2020 season with a perfect day, converting both field goal attempts against the Bills in Week 17 to solidify a 91.9 FG% on the season. Sanders should be one of the top kickers selected in 2021 fantasy drafts.

Lynn Bowden Jr. caught eight of twelve targets for 44 yards, rushed once for negative seven yards and even tossed a 32 yard completion in a 56-26 blowout loss to the Buffalo Bills in Week 17.

Fantasy Impact: Bowden Jr. was a utility player for the Dolphins after being traded from the Raiders early in the season. The rookie finishes his season without a touchdown but the athleticism displayed in 2020 will certainly carry over into a fantasy-relevant role in the 2021 season.

Salvon Ahmed rushed six times for 29 yards and a touchdown, including 19 yards through the air in the Dolphins' 56-26 loss to the Buffalo Bills on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: Ahmed worked his way into the Dolphins' running back rotation in his rookie campaign and will compete for the starting role with Myles Gaskin heading into the 2021 season. Ahmed finishes his season with 380 total yards and three touchdowns across six games.

Category: Game Recaps

DeVante Parker caught seven of fourteen targets for 116 yards in the Dolphins' 56-26 loss to the Buffalo Bills in Week 17.

Fantasy Impact: Parker was Tagovailoa's favorite target on Sunday, going for over 100 yards in a blowout loss to the Bills that officially eliminates the Dolphins from playoff contention. Parker dealt with hamstring injuries throughout the latter portion of the season but should be considered a solid WR2 if fully healthy heading into 2021 fantasy drafts.

Mike Gesicki registered five catches for 47 yards on ten targets in a 56-26 loss to the Buffalo Bills on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: The third-year tight end saw double-digit targets on Sunday but was only able to haul in half of them while being kept out of the end zone. Gesicki flashed throughout the season scoring six touchdowns across 15 games and is a TE1 heading into 2021 fantasy drafts.

Myles Gaskin totaled 77 yards against the Buffalo Bills, rushing for 20 yards and a touchdown while hauling in four receptions for 57 yards in a 56-26 blowout loss on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: Gaskin couldn't get much going on the ground but was able to find the end zone, while contributing 57 yards through the air. The second-year running back will look to compete for the starting job heading into the 2021 season after the Dolphins were eliminated from postseason contention on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: Fitzpatrick reportedly tested positive for COVID-19 on Thursday and will be unavailable for Sunday's contest against the Bills. He will most likely be placed on reserve/COVID-19 list within the next couple of days. Jake Rudock will serve as Tua Tagovailoa's backup in Week 17.

Dolphins LB Elandon Roberts (knee) won't play in Week 17 against the Bills. (Source: ESPN)

Fantasy Impact: Roberts is reportedly dealing with a "significant" knee injury. He also appears unlikely to play in the postseason should Miami advance.

Dolphins WR Jakeem Grant (ankle) suffered a high-ankle sprain during the team's 26-25 win over the Raiders in Week 16 and has been ruled out against the Bills in Week 17. (Source: Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Grant's absence in an upcoming critical must-win game against a talented team like the Bills is a significant loss. The Dolphins are dealing with numerous injuries at the wide receiver position, which includes DeVante Parker and Preston Williams on Injured Reserve. Grant could join Williams on IR, leaving fantasy managers with risky streaming options in Mack Hollins, Lynn Bowden Jr. and Isaiah Ford. Bowden Jr. disappointed in Week 16 seeing just three targets but has seen 19 targets over the last three games, making him the best risky investment against an improved Buffalo defense.

The Dolphins waived WR Antonio Callaway. (Source: Miami Dolphins on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Callaway was reinstated by the NFL earlier this year and caught just two passes while with the Dolphins. He didn't play a single offensive snap in the team's Week 15 win over the Patriots.

Category: Transactions

Durham Smythe caught 5-of-5 targets for 40 yards in the Dolphins' 22-12 Week 15 win over the Patriots.

Fantasy Impact: Smythe functioned as Miami's pass-catching tight end with Mike Gesicki (shoulder) sidelined. Smythe won't be a fantasy factor in Week 16 against the Raiders assuming Gesicki returns.

DeAndre Washington was held without a touch in the Dolphins' Week 15 win over the Patriots.

Fantasy Impact: Washington was a non-factor with both Salvon Ahmed and Matt Breida back in the mix. The former Raider / Chief can be dropped in any season-long leagues in which he was rostered.

Category: Game Recaps

Matt Breida rushed 12 times for 86 yards in the Dolphins' Week 15 victory over the Patriots.

Fantasy Impact: Breida didn't receive any targets in the passing game. Salvon Ahmed led the way with 23 carries but Miami ran the ball enough for both backs to receive double-digit touches. Breida's return dropped DeAndre Washington down in the pecking order. It's unclear how this backfield will shake out if/when Myles Gaskin also returns in Week 16. Ahmed currently has the clearest path to fantasy usefulness.

Mack Hollins caught 5-of-9 targets for 66 yards in the Dolphins' Week 14 loss to the Chiefs.

Fantasy Impact: Both DeVante Parker and Jakeem Grant exited this game with injuries, so Hollins saw a bigger role than usual. He isn't on the fantasy radar moving forward, however.

Category: Game Recaps

Adam Shaheen caught 2-of-3 targets for 26 yards in the Dolphins' 33-27 Week 14 loss to the Chiefs.

Fantasy Impact: Shaheen got some extra run once Mike Gesicki left this one with an apparent arm injury. Shaheen could wind up serving as a DFS punt play in Week 15 if Gesicki can't go. Miami faces New England in an AFC East divisional matchup.

Category: Game Recaps

Patrick Laird rushed three times for six yards and caught 2-of-3 targets for 16 yards in the Dolphins' Week 13 win over the Bengals.

Fantasy Impact: Laird was Miami's No. 2 RB for this one. Myles Gaskin led the way with 23 touches, however, which means that Laird can remain on waiver wires across fantasy leagues.

Cameron Wolfe of ESPN reports there's "no guarantee" that Dolphins WR Preston Williams (foot) plays again this season. (Source: Cameron Wolfe on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Williams hasn't played since Week 9 and Wolfe notes that his injury "wasn't minor." DeVante Parker continues to see an increased target share with Williams sidelined. Williams can be left on waivers in redraft leagues.

Miami Dolphins defensive tackle Christian Wilkins returned to practice on Wednesday and will be removed from the reserve/COVID list. (Source: Cameron Wolfe on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Wilkins' absence left a major hole on the Dolphins defensive line, so the team will be thrilled to get him back. He has been solid this season for Miami but has not improved much from an IDP perspective. He is still more DT2 than DT1, but his upside is palpable. He will return to starters snaps for this weekend's plus matchup against the New York Jets.
