Miami Dolphins

AFC East

Jerome Baker logged six solo tackles, three assisted tackles, and a forced fumble in a massive 27-24 upset over the Patriots.

Fantasy Impact: Baker and Dolphins played the role of spoiler on Sunday, pushing the Patriots out of home-field advantage for this year's playoffs. As for Baker, he finished the year with three solid performances and brought his season tackle total to 127. He seems to be one of the cornerstones for this rebuilding Dolphins defense and is a name worth remembering for next year's draft.

Fantasy Impact: According to police reports, Howard allegedly pushed his fiancée after a heated argument over a undisclosed purse purchase. The Dolphins have released statement that the team is aware of the situation, but are still gathering more information on the incident. Howard could be at risk of a suspension under the NFL’s domestic violence policy. He has been on the injured reserve since October due to knee surgery.

The Miami Dolphins allowed 24 points and 352 yards of offense in their Week 17 win over the New England Patriots. The Dolphins recorded one sack, one fumble recovery, and an interception that they returned for a touchdown.

Fantasy Impact: The Dolphins had a huge day thanks to the turnovers and the score, but would have been a middling unit otherwise. The Dolphins should improve the defense this offseason, but they'd still figure unlikely to be a force for 2020. Keep an eye on their roster moves as they may be a viable option next season.

Jason Sanders converted both of his field goals and all three of his extra point tries in the Dolphins' Week 17 win over the Patriots.

Fantasy Impact: Sanders tops off a moderate fantasy season with five straight strong performances. After a slow start thanks both to opportunity and accuracy, Sanders has been great down the stretch. If the Dolphins improve the offense in 2020, which they certainly will, Sanders could be a viable option.

Mike Gesicki caught four of his seven targets for 34 yards and a touchdown in the Dolphins' Week 17 win over the Patriots.

Fantasy Impact: Gesicki has been a strong producer of late, thanks in large part to an uptick in touchdown output. He'll remain on his rookie deal through 2021, and should be the clear-cut TE1 for Miami next season. Gesicki figures to be a popular late-round flier in August.

Category: Game Recaps

Isaiah Ford caught seven of his nine targets for 54 yards in the Dolphins' Week 17 win over the Patriots. He also rushed once for 11 yards.

Fantasy Impact: Ford has turned in a few nice games after being thrust into the starting lineup thanks to injuries. Ford was a solid college prospect, but has yet to make consistent noise in the NFL. He'll be an exclusive rights free agent (ERFA) after the 2019 season, so the Dolphins will be able to get him back for 2020 on the cheap, and they would be wise to do so. Ford will not likely crack the starting lineup, though.

Category: Game Recaps

Albert Wilson caught five of his eight targets for 59 yards in the Dolphins' Week 17 win over the Patriots. He also completed one of his two pass attempts for 20 yards on a trick play.

Fantasy Impact: Wilson is a nice role player for the Dolphins, but has never been able to capture a full-time role with significant fantasy value. Wilson is signed through 2020 but with little dead cap. He'd figure to return, but could be a cut candidate depending on the team's other moves at wide receiver. Wilson is unlikely to carry any real fantasy value regardless of where he plays in 2020.

Category: Game Recaps

DeVante Parker caught eight of his eleven targets for 137 yards in the Dolphins' Week 17 win over the Patriots.

Fantasy Impact: Parker got the better of Stephon Gilmore in this contest, despite coverage on most of his routes. Parker has completely blown up in the second half of the 2019 season and thanks to a new contract, is poised to return to an improved Dolphins offense as their alpha dog wide receiver. Parker is likely to be around the WR2 range in August 2020.

Category: Game Recaps

Samaje Perine rushed five times for 16 yards in the Dolphins' Week 17 win over the Patriots.

Fantasy Impact: Perine ran hard in this game but didn't get much going on limited work. Given a large body of work in the NFL of unsuccessful performances, it's unlikely Perine makes a splash in 2020, even on the thin depth chart of the Dolphins.

Category: Game Recaps

Patrick Laird rushed 11 times for 21 yards and caught four of his five targets for 48 yards in the Dolphins' Week 17 win over the Patriots.

Fantasy Impact: Laird had plenty of opportunity down the stretch, but was unable to be efficient in really any way. While there is opportunity on the Dolphins' depth chart, Laird seems likely to be replaced via free agency or draft. Expect primarily special teams work for 2020.

Category: Game Recaps

Ryan Fitzpatrick completed 28-of-41 pass attempts for 320 yards and one touchdown in the Dolphins' Week 17 win over the Patriots. Fitzpatrick also rushed five times for 15 yards and a touchdown.

Fantasy Impact: Fitzpatrick was sharp in this game almost the entire contest, picking on shutdown cornerback Stephon Gilmore with ease. Fitzpatrick caps off an impressive season with one of his most impressive performances, given the tough matchup. The Dolphins will most likely be completely revamped heading into 2020, and while Fitzpatrick is under contract through the end of 2020, there is only $1.5M of dead cap. If the Dolphins draft a quarterback early, it's possible Fitzpatrick either serves as the backup or gets cut. Fitzpatrick's fantasy outlook for 2020 is murky at best.

Fantasy Impact: Allen Hurns will miss Week 17's contest, but it is hard to upgrade any of the Dolphins pass catchers due to a tough matchup against the New England Patriots. DeVante Parker, Albert Wilson, and Mike Gesicki should see a boost in targets with Hurns out of the lineup.

Miami Dolphins running back Myles Gaskin is unlikely to play in Week 17 against the New England Patriots. (Source: Armando Salguero on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Gaskin took over lead back duties in Week 17, but was unable to finish the game due to an ankle injury. Head coach Brian Flores said that while Gaskin would say that he is ready to play Sunday, that he 'probably won't. He looked like the most talented back on the Dolphins roster, but due to the high probability of the Dolphins adding a major talent at the position, he will likely be utilized as a depth piece in 2020.

The Dolphins placed running back Kalen Ballage (leg) on injured reserve. (Source: Adam Schefter on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: This ends his season. Ballage averaged a pitiful 1.8 yards per carry through 12 games this season and never looked explosive. Myles Gaskin and Patrick Laird will take over at running back for the Dolphins.

Mark Walton was waived by the Dolphins Tuesday. (Source: Cameron Wolfe on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: In relation to three off-season arrests, Walton was serving a four-game suspension for violating the NFL’s personal conduct and abuse policies. After his latest off the field issue on Tuesday, Walton was ultimately cut by the Dolphins. With Walton no longer in the mix, look for Kalen Ballage, Patrick Laird and Myles Gaskin to lead the the Dolphins backfield.

Jakeem Grant rushed once for a seven-yard touchdown and caught all three of his targets for 32 yards in the Dolphins' Week 11 loss to the Bills. Grant also housed a 101-yard kick return.

Fantasy Impact: Grant wasn't likely in many starting lineups this week, and that shouldn't change. Despite the huge day, he touched the ball just four times on offense. Players on the Dolphins who get four touches in a game are not exciting for fantasy purposes in almost every case. Don't chase the box score here.

The Miami Dolphins have announced that wide receiver Preston Williams will miss the remainder of the season after suffering an injury Week 9 against the Jets. (Source: Barry Jackson)

Fantasy Impact: Williams had to be carted off following the injury late in the game against the Jets. He had really come on of late and was turning into a fantasy-relevant player. He's someone to keep in mind for dynasty leagues, but his 2019 season is now over. His loss is likely DeVante Parker's gain, as long as he Ryan Fitzpatrick throwing him the ball.

Dolphins running back Kenyan Drake has been traded to the Arizona Cardinals for a conditional 2020 draft pick, according to a report from ESPN NFL insider Adam Schefter. (Source: Adam Schefter on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Drake was rumored to be on the trading block and was not traveling with the team to Pittsburgh for a Monday Night Football matchup with the Steelers, and now we know his destination. With David Johnson dealing with an ankle injury and Chase Edmonds suffering a hamstring injury yesterday, Drake could be in line for a significant workload as early as this Thursday night against the 49ers. In Miami, this could mean more touches for running back Kalen Ballage.

Josh Rosen completed 15-of-25 pass attempts for 85 yards and two interceptions in the Dolphins' Week 6 loss to the Redskins. Rosen was benched for Ryan Fitzpatrick.

Fantasy Impact: Rosen has not done much to inspire confidence in 2019, though it's hard to blame him too much based on his supporting cast. He's certainly not set up to succeed, but has not risen above his situation either. Regardless, he need not be owned outside of 2QB leagues, and those owners should scramble to get FitzMagic this week if he was dropped previously.

Category: Game Recaps

Nick O'Leary caught his only target for 19 yards in the Dolphins' Week 3 loss to the Cowboys.

Fantasy Impact: O'Leary is not often used in the passing game and is not worth owning in fantasy leagues. However, his usage at all means it's damaging the outlook for Mike Gesicki, who is a strong receiver but is not seeing the usage. O'Leary need not be owned, but he continues to put a damper on his teammate's fantasy value.
