Fantasy Impact: Wilson is the Dolphins' No. 3 receiver behind stars Tyreek Hill and Jaylen Waddle. As a result, his value is capped and he should be left on waivers in most fantasy football leagues.

Fantasy Impact: Miami hopes it can have its star corner active for a big divisional game on Sunday. Howard has amassed six tackles through two contests in 2022. If he is absent, Stefon Diggs would see his value rise even further.

Jason Sanders made all six of his extra point attempts in Sunday's thrilling 42-38 win over the Ravens.

Fantasy Impact: The Dolphins were feeling the touchdowns Sunday which made Sanders' life a bit easier. The New Mexico product is now 142-for-145 on extra points in his five-year career. Sanders' has a career long field goal of 56 yards back in 2020.

The Dolphins D/ST recorded zero sacks and no turnovers while allowing 38 points in Sunday's thrilling 42-38 win over the Ravens.

Fantasy Impact: Xavier Howard nearly recorded a pick six that would've tied the game in the fourth quarter. Unfortunately, Howard couldn't haul it in and it went down as a pass defended. Sunday's game was an ultimate shootout that contained little to no defense. Avoid the Dolphins D/ST in Week 3 when they face Josh Allen and the Bills.

Mike Gesicki caught all four of his targets for 41 yards and one touchdown in Sunday's thrilling 42-38 win over the Ravens.

Fantasy Impact: Gesicki snatched the ball up high in the back of the end zone on 3rd & 13 to give the Dolphins their first of five second-half touchdowns. After a disappointing one target performance in Week 1, the Dolphins utilized their big tight end in the pass-happy game script. However, The Penn State product was a distance third target behind the stud duo of Jaylen Waddle and Tyreek Hill. Gesicki will be difficult to trust versus an elite Bills defense in Week 3.

Raheem Mostert recorded 11 carries for 51 yards and caught all three of his targets for 28 yards in Sunday's thrilling 42-38 win over the Ravens.

Fantasy Impact: Mostert recorded a game-high 11 carries in the shootout win. Additionally, the veteran back was involved in the passing game, which would boost his fantasy value if it becomes a trend. In Week 1, Chase Edmonds was the featured back which leaves us wondering how the backfield work will be split up heading into Week 3's divisional battle versus the Bills. For now, Mostert and Edmonds appear to be splitting work moving forward.

Jaylen Waddle recorded 11 receptions for 171 yards and two touchdowns on 19 targets in Sunday's thrilling 42-38 win over the Ravens.

Fantasy Impact: Waddle finished Sunday's comeback win with career-highs in yards and targets. After only five targets in Week 1, the Alabama product demanded 19 targets in a pass-friendly game script. The second year wideout continually found ways to get open and his chemistry with his quarterback was noticeable. It is the Waddle and Tyreek Hill show in Miami moving forward. Waddle is set to face-off versus the tough Bills defense in Week 3.

Chase Edmonds recorded five carries for 33 yards and caught one of his three targets for eight yards in Sunday's thrilling 42-38 win over the Ravens.

Fantasy Impact: Edmonds was an afterthought in Week 2 as Tua Tagovailoa hyper-targeted Jaylen Waddle and Tyreek Hill. His lone chunk play came with 44 seconds left in the fourth quarter on a 28 yard run that lead to the game-winning touchdown by Waddle. Raheem Mostert ended up seeing six more carries and the same number of targets Sunday which was not the case in Week 1. If this trend continues, it will be tough to know when to start Edmonds. However, if Edmonds becomes much more involved in the passing game in a tough Week 3 matchup versus the Bills, he'll win back some confidence.

Tyreek Hill recorded 11 receptions for 190 yards and two touchdowns on 13 targets in Sunday's thrilling 42-38 win over the Ravens.

Fantasy Impact: Hill was up to his usual game-breaking antics as he helped ignite the Dolphins second-half comeback with two deep touchdowns. The electrifying receiver got loose down the field with ease even when the Ravens knew the Dolphins needed points in a hurry. Furthermore, the 28-year-old followed up his 12 targets a week ago with 13 targets in Week 2. Outside of Jaylen Waddle receiving a game-high 19 targets, the next highest target man was tight end Mike Gesicki with four targets.

Tua Tagovailoa completed 36 of his 50 pass attempts for 469 yards, six touchdowns, and two interceptions in Sunday's thrilling 42-38 win over the Ravens. He also recorded one carry for one yard.

Fantasy Impact: Tagovailoa threw for five touchdowns in the second half to rally his team to a victory after trailing 28-7 at halftime. Sunday was easily a career-best game for the Alabama product against a respected Ravens defense. Currently, Tagovailoa is the QB2 in fantasy points for Week 2 trailing only Lamar Jackson. This outing was exactly what fantasy owners wanted to see out of the Dolphins' quarterback when placed in a pass-friendly game script. Beware of the brutally tough matchup in Week 3 versus an elite Bills defense. If the 24-year-old performs well versus the Bills, he is going to become a very desirable fantasy quarterback.

The Miami Dolphins moved Byron Jones to the PUP list on Tuesday due to leg surgery, meaning he will be out for at least the first four games of the season. (Source: Tom Pelissero on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: This is a bit of a surprise, as head coach Mike McDaniel was originally optimistic for Jones to be back by Week 1. The cornerback was slotted to be the starter alongside Xavien Howard, so Miami will have to find a new CB2 before Week 1. Nik Needham and Keion Crossen are some players that may step into that role, but this is a huge loss for the Dolphins' secondary.

The Miami Dolphins have waived WR Lynn Bowden.
