Miami Dolphins

AFC East


The Dolphins' defense recorded an interception and three sacks while holding the Giants to just nine points and 250 net yards on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: Xavien Howard logged the pick. Jaelan Phillips notched a pair of sacks while Adam Butler added one of his own. The Miami defense has been one of the best in the NFL as of late and will remain a top option against the Jets, Saints, and Titans from Weeks 15 to 17.

Dolphins kicker Jason Sanders went 2-for-3 on field goals and 2-for-2 on extra points against the Giants in Week 13.

Fantasy Impact: Both of Sanders' made field goals came from 48 yards out, though he did miss a 52-yarder. The 26-year-old has missed a kick in each of his last three games, but the positive trend of the Miami offense makes Sanders a fine streaming option when he returns in Week 15.

Dolphins tight end Durham Smythe was unable to haul in his lone target against the Giants on Sunday afternoon.

Fantasy Impact: Smythe had tallied nine catches over his last two games, so it was a bit surprising to see him fetch just one target this week. Regardless, he's not on the fantasy radar at this point in the season.

Dolphins wide receiver Isaiah Ford turned his lone target into a two-yard touchdown grab against the Giants on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: Ford has benefitted from Tua Tagovailoa's tendency to spread the ball around. He has totaled six catches for 97 yards and a touchdown over the course of his last four games.

Dolphins wide receiver Mack Hollins turned his lone target into a five-yard touchdown reception against the Giants on Sunday afternoon.

Fantasy Impact: When it comes to touchdowns, Hollins has been quite efficient this season. He has four scores on just 13 targets so far.

Dolphins wide receiver Albert Wilson was targeted eight times against the Giants on Sunday. When all was said and done, he finished with four catches and 26 receiving yards.

Fantasy Impact: Even with DeVante Parker back in the lineup, Wilson remained involved in the Miami offense. He has now caught 16 of 23 targets for 148 yards and a touchdown over the course of his last four games. He's still not on the fantasy radar, though.

Dolphins tight end Mike Gesicki hauled in seven of 11 targets for just 46 yards against the Giants on Sunday afternoon.

Fantasy Impact: It was a modest showing from Gesicki in PPR formats. The tight end has a bye next week but shall continue to fall into the TE1 category when Miami returns to action in Week 15.

Category: Game Recaps


Dolphins wide receiver DeVante Parker turned five targets into five catches for 62 yards against the Giants on Sunday afternoon.

Fantasy Impact: Parker was a solid weapon at Tua Tagovailoa's disposal, including during the waning minutes when the veteran wideout made an acrobatic toe-tap catch on the left sideline. He represents a mid-to-low WR3 option going forward. Miami is on its bye in Week 14.

Dolphins rookie wide receiver Jaylen Waddle had another big game on Sunday, catching nine of 11 targets for 90 yards against the Giants.

Fantasy Impact: Waddle now has 26 catches for 292 yards and a touchdown over the course of his last three games. Fantasy managers should continue to view the first-round pick out of Alabama as a mid-range WR2 option going forward.

Dolphins running back Salvon Ahmed rushed eight times for 23 yards against the Giants on Sunday afternoon.

Fantasy Impact: Ahmed was the clear No. 2 running back for the first time in a while with Phillip Lindsay ruled out. He's still not on the redraft radar.

Dolphins running back Myles Gaskin rushed 15 times for 44 yards against the Giants on Sunday. He also hauled in both of his targets for an additional five yards through the air.

Fantasy Impact: This was a step backward for Gaskin after he tallied 37.8 fantasy points (PPR) over his last two games. Still, he remains involved in the Miami offense and will fall into the RB2 territory against the Jets following next week's bye.

Dolphins quarterback Tua Tagovailoa finished 30-for-41 with 244 passing yards, two touchdowns, and zero interceptions against the Giants on Sunday afternoon. He was also sacked twice in the effort.

Fantasy Impact: Tagovailoa has now amassed 747 passing yards, five touchdowns, one interception, and 66.05 fantasy points over the course of his last three games. He remains very much in the high-end QB2 conversation heading into a Week 14 bye.

Fantasy Impact: Lindsay saw twelve touches against the Panthers in Week 12, but it's looking like he'll be sidelined on Sunday. Myles Gaskins is facing a big workload and is a must-start in all formats and should be popular in DFS.

Miami Dolphins wide receiver Will Fuller will not practice this week due to a finger injury. (Source: Cameron Wolfe on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Fuller continues to deal with a finger injury and will not practice leading up to this weekend's contest against the New York Giants. Fuller reportedly has multiple fractures, but the Dolphins remain optimistic about a potential return this season. Fantasy managers can continue to carry him on I.R.

Adam Shaheen has been ruled out for his Week 12 matchup against the Carolina Panthers. (Source: Daniel Oyefusi on Twitter)

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

Dolphins running back Patrick Laird rushed one time for four yards against the Jets on Sunday while also hauling in his lone target for an additional five yards through the air.

Fantasy Impact: Laird has totaled four touches and 21 scrimmage yards through four games this season. He's not on the fantasy radar.

Dolphins running back Duke Johnson Jr. finished Sunday's game with four carries for 18 yards.

Fantasy Impact: Johnson was able to touch the ball a few times with Salvon Ahmed ruled out ahead of kickoff. He's still not on the fantasy radar at this point.

Dolphins quarterback Jacoby Brissett finished 11-for-23 with 156 passing yards, zero touchdowns, and zero interceptions during Thursday's upset win over the Ravens. He also rushed for four yards.

Fantasy Impact: Brissett started in place of Tua Tagovailoa (finger), who was active as the backup only for emergency situations. However, Brissett exited just one minute into the third quarter due to a knee injury and, despite being medically cleared to return, was held out for the remainder of the game. It looks like we'll see Tagovailoa against the Jets in Week 11.

Dolphins WR Preston Williams has been ruled out for Sunday's Week 8 game against the Bills. (Source: Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Williams has just five receptions on the season. He isn't a fantasy relevant player at this time.

Dolphins RB Malcolm Brown (quad) will be placed on IR. (Source: Omar Kelly on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Brown suffered the quad injury in Week 7 against the Falcons, and he'll miss a minimum of three games. He wasn't much of a factor for fantasy purposes himself, but his absence should lead to more security and increased touches for both Myles Gaskin and Salvon Ahmed. Gaskin can be considered more of a high-end flex play at least for the foreseeabe future, and Ahmed a desperation bye-week fill-in.
