Miami Dolphins Player Notes
For The Last 365 Days
 
Lamar Miller, RB9/28/2014 5:53:00 PM
Description: Dolphins running back Lamar Miller scores twice Sunday.
Insight: He had 12 carries for 64 yards. Miller will be a RB2 until Knowshon Moreno retuns to action.
Ryan Tannehill, QB9/28/2014 5:50:00 PM
Description: Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill plays well admist fued with coach.
Insight: He was 23-of-31 for 278 yards, two touchdowns, and an interception. Joe Philbin will have no choice but to move forward with Tannehill at the helm.
Mike Wallace, WR9/28/2014 12:08:00 PM
Description: Dolphins receiver Mike Wallace is active for Week 4.
Insight: Wallace was dealing with a hamstring injury which is a concern for a speed receiver, but will be active.
Ryan Tannehill, QB9/25/2014 2:52:00 PM
Description: The Miami Herald reports Joe Philbin has apologized to the team for denying to commit publicly to Ryan Tannehill as the team's quarterback.
Insight: As bad as Tannehill has played, it was a poor choice to refuse to defend his quarterback to the media and continue to give Tannehill all the first team reps. Apparently, the players were making jokes in the locker room about the situation, and Tannehill has said it was a distraction. It seems Philbin is dangerously close to being shown the door in Miami. At least, fantasy owners now know that Tannehill is indeed the starter for Week 4.
Mike Wallace, WR9/22/2014 11:08:00 AM
Description: Dolphins receiver Mike Wallace was targetd 12 times against the Chiefs, but caught just five balls for 74 yards.
Insight: Wallace has only caught 17-of-31 targets (54.8 percent) this season, but did score in the first two games. We need that completion percentage to rise.
Ryan Tannehill, QB9/22/2014 11:02:00 AM
Description: Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill threw the ball 43 times against the Chiefs, managing just 205 yards and one score.
Insight: Tannehill has been throwing the ball too much over the past two weeks (92 attempts) with not much to show for it. He's still yet to throw for more than 241 yards this season and his fantasy value continues to remain low.
Lamar Miller, RB9/22/2014 10:58:00 AM
Description: Dolphins running back Lamar Miller took advantage of Knowshon Moreno's absence rushing 15 times for 108 yards.
Insight: Miller also caught four balls for 24 yards and was a solid fantasy option. He should continue to get the bulk of the work until Moreno returns so keep him in your lineups.
Dion Jordan, DE9/19/2014 8:36:00 PM
Description: The NFL suspended Dolphins DE Dion Jordan four games for violating the substance-abuse policy according to the Miami Herald.
Insight: Jordan was on track for reinstatement this week after the new substance-abuse policy lifted his previously imposed four-game PED suspension on Wednesday. He will now serve an additional four-game suspension and will not be able to return until Week 7.
Knowshon Moreno, RB9/19/2014 3:09:00 PM
Description: Dolphins running back Knowshon Moreno, out with a hyper-extended left elbow, told the Miami Herald he plans to return for Game 6.
Insight: That would have him returning for the Oct. 12 matchup against Green Bay. Lamar Miller with help from from Damien Williams will share the workload until then.
Brian Hartline, WRCold9/16/2014 3:14:00 PM
Description: Miami wideout Brian Hartline has not been able to find a niche in the Dolphins offense of late. He's got just seven catchers for 62 yards in the first two games this season.
Insight: Since a 253-yard output in Sept of 2012, Hartline has cracked the 100-yard mark just three times in 29 games. He's not a touchdown maker, either, just four over the same span and fantasy owners should not be looking to him to produce starter fantasy value.
Ryan Tannehill, QB9/16/2014 3:07:00 PM
Description: Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill threw the ball 49 times against the Buffalo Bills, managing 249 yards, one TD and one INT.
Insight: The loss of Knowshon Moreno may have had a lot to do with his high attempts total. We like how he and Mike Wallace are starting to come together and a passing combination.
Mike Wallace, WR9/14/2014 6:06:00 PM
Description: Dolphins receiver Mike Wallace caught five balls for 56 yards and a touchdown against the Bills in Week 2.
Insight: Wallace has a touchdown in each of the first two games in 2014. He also caught this TD pass one handed. Ryan Tannehill is still a liablilty with his accuracy, but so far, he is finding Wallace in the end zone.
Knowshon Moreno, RBHot9/14/2014 2:27:00 PM
Description: Dolphins running back Knowshon Moreno left Sunday's game against the Bills holding his left elbow. UPDATE: Will not return
Insight: It looked like Moreno may have hyper-extended his left elbow when he placed his left hand on the turf as he was falling to the ground. Damien Williams will share carries with Lamar Miller if Moreno is unable to return.
Knowshon Moreno, RBHot9/12/2014 3:07:00 PM
Description: Dolphins running back Knowshon Moreno (shoulder) is listed as probable for Week 2 due to the injury.
Insight: Moreno was a workhorse in Week 1 with 24 rushes for 134 yards. Outside of a 37-carry game against New England last season, Moreno had not run the ball that much since dec 2012. We loved the results, but we hope his workload stays at around 18-20 carries so he can make it through a 16-game schedule.
Lamar Miller, RB9/8/2014 4:46:00 PM
Description: Dolphins offensive coordinator Bill Lazor indicated Monday that he will continue to share the running back duties between Lamar Miller and Knowshon Moreno according to the Miami Hearld.
Insight: Both backs played well in the victory over New England on Sunday. Even though he didn't start, Moreno played on early downs while Miller played in passing situations. Moreno and Miller are both worth owning; we target Moreno as a RB2 in a 12-team league and Miller as a possible flex option.
Knowshon Moreno, RBHot9/7/2014 6:37:00 PM
Description: Dolphins running back Knowshon Moreno showed everyone why he was brought to South Beach.
Insight: Knowshon Moreno wasn't the official starter at tailback, but he showed fantasy owners he's the guy to have rushing more than twice as often as Lamar Miller (24-11) and posting 134-yards and a score..
Koa Misi, LB9/7/2014 2:10:00 PM
Description: Dolphins linebacker Koa Misi has left the game due to an ankle injury. His return is questionable.
Insight: Miami is short-handed at the position with Dannell Ellerbe also sidelined in the game. The absence of two linebackers could allow the Patriots some running room.
Knowshon Moreno, RB9/1/2014 4:39:00 PM
Description: Dolphins beat writer Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald says "it is clear Knowshon Moreno is Miami's lead running back."
Insight: Due to Moreno's knee surgery, Lamar Miller ran with the first-team for most of training camp and the preseason, but he averaged just 3.4 ypc while Moreno ran for 6.4. Miller is expected to have a package of plays, but he's going to be Miami's change-of-pace back.
Lamar Miller, RB8/27/2014 9:42:00 AM
Description: The Miami Herald speculates that Lamar Miller has the edge over Knowshon Moreno for the starting running back job.
Insight: Head coach Joe Philbin has been praising Miller all week saying statements such as, "I like everything Lamar has done since he's gotten here. He's had an excellent offseason and camp." Miller and Moreno have split the first-team carries, but Miller is supposed to be the guy for Week 1 and Moreno will move into the third down role.
Mike Wallace, WR8/23/2014 9:54:00 PM
Description: Dolphins receiver Mike Wallace caught six balls for 67 yards in Saturday's preseason game against the Cowboys.
Insight: That's a good sign for Wallace, who was dealing with a hamstring injury. It is also a good sign Wallace received a team-high eight targets. But until Tannehill can hit Wallace on the deep ball, the QB missed his receiver by a good five yards on a long pass, Wallace remains a quality WR2 or flex start. Wallace has been dealing with a minor hamstring injury and the Dolphins held him out as a precaution. Hopefully he can get back on the field for Miami's second preseason game so he can work on his chemistry with QB Ryan Tannehill. If Wallace stays healthy he should have a much better season than he did in 2013 (73 catches, 930 yards, five touchdowns) with creative new OC Bill Lazor calling the shots.
Knowshon Moreno, RB8/23/2014 9:42:00 PM
Description: Dolphins running back Knowshon Moreno ran for 64 yards on 10 carries in Saturday's preseason game against the Cowboys.
Insight: The running back scampered 19 yards on his first carry as a Dolphin and continued to run strong. Lamar Miller started the game, but the two running backs pretty much split time with the first team offense. Moreno provides great value with his ADP in the 10th round.
Ryan Tannehill, QB8/23/2014 9:34:00 PM
Description: Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill completed 13-of-21 passes for 119 yards and an interception in Saturday's preseason game against the Cowboys.
Insight: Miami's offense gained 232 yards with Tannehill under center against Dallas, but it yielded only three points due to turnovers and penalties. Tannehill's worst throw was his last when he stared down Brian Hartline and threw it right to cornerback Tyler Patmon. The quarterback also missed an open Mike Wallace on a deep pass by a good five yards. However, Tannehill is still a good QB2 option as he has gone 29-for-41 for 291 yards, one touchdown and an interception this preseason.
Daniel Thomas, RBCold8/23/2014 7:12:00 PM
Description: Miami running back Daniel Thomas (hamstring) will miss Miami's third preseason game.
Insight: Thomas won't play despite returning to practice this week. He has yet to play in a preseason game and could be in danger of losing his roster spot.
Knowshon Moreno, RB8/21/2014 4:48:00 PM
Description: Dolphins running back Knowshon Moreno (knee) is expected to suit up for Saturday's preseason game against Dallas according to the Miami Herald.
Insight: It will be Moreno's debut with the Dolphins and last chance to earn the No. 1 RB spot before Week 1. More than likely, he will be a change-of-pace back and pass protector while Lamar Miller gets most of the first and second down carries.
Knowshon Moreno, RB8/20/2014 9:09:00 PM
Description: Dolphins running back Knowshon Moreno (knee) says he's ready for game action and hopes to play in Saturday's preseason game against Dallas, according to the Miami Herald.
Insight: Moreno underwent a left knee scope in June and returned to practice a couple weeks ago. On Wednesday, he had his most impressive day of practice since returning. Moreno is likely going to end up in a timeshare with Lamar Miller.
Charles Clay, FB/TE8/18/2014 7:27:00 PM
Description: Dolphins tight end Charles Clay (knee) returned to practice Monday, according to Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald.
Insight: Clay missed the first two preseason games with a knee injury. The 25-year-old had 69 catches for 759 yards and six touchdowns and also carried seven times for 15 yards and a touchdown last season. He ranked seventh among tight ends in fantasy points.
Knowshon Moreno, RB8/12/2014 12:04:00 PM
Description: Dolphins running back Knowshon Moreno (knee) finally participated in contract drills Monday.
Insight: Moreno underwent a left knee scope in June. He has a lot of ground to make up because Lamar Miller has been impressive in camp. Moreno's pass protection skills could prove useful for a team that has offensive line issues, so this could turn into a timeshare. Fantasy owners shouldn't draft either player as more than a flex option.
Ryan Tannehill, QB8/8/2014 8:41:00 PM
Description: Playing without starters Mike Wallace, Brian Hartline and Charles Clay, Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill went 6-of-6 for 62 yards and a touchdown in Friday's preseason opener against the Falcons.
Insight: Tannehill was sacked 10 times more than any other quarterback in the NFL last season, Miami had an ineffective running game and offensive coordinator Mike Sherman was painfully uncreative with high-priced receiver Mike Wallace, but Tannehill still threw for 3,913 yards and 24 touchdowns while running for 238 yards. The Dolphins brought in Bill Lazor from Philadelphia to run the offense and rebuilt the offensive line with Branden Albert and Ja'Wuan James, so Tannehill could have a breakout third season.
Mike Wallace, WR8/8/2014 8:35:00 PM
Description: Dolphins receiver Mike Wallace (hamstring) was held out of the preseason opener Friday along with Brian Hartline (knee) and Charles Clay (knee).
Insight: Wallace has been dealing with a minor hamstring injury and the Dolphins held him out as a precaution. Hopefully he can get back on the field for Miami's second preseason game so he can work on his chemistry with QB Ryan Tannehill. If Wallace stays healthy he should have a much better season than he did in 2013 (73 catches, 930 yards, five touchdowns) with creative new OC Bill Lazor calling the shots.
Ryan Tannehill, QB8/7/2014 11:42:00 AM
Description: Chris Perkins of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel has set what he calls "realistic" statistical goals for Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill at 4,100 yards, 28 TDs, 12 INTs and a playoff berth.
Insight: The Dolphins quarterback would need a lot of help from a rebuilt offensive line to reach thoses numbers. He was sacked a league-high 58 times in 2013. TSN is predicting a less-lofty 3,620 yards, 22 TDs, 16 INTs and two rushing touchdowns.
Knowshon Moreno, RB8/6/2014 7:12:00 PM
Description: The Dolphins have activated Knowshon Moreno (knee) from the active/PUP list.
Insight: Moreno underwent a left knee scope in June and missed seven weeks. He has a lot of ground to make up because Lamar Miller has been impressive in camp. Moreno's pass protection skills could prove useful for a team that has offensive line issues, so this could turn into a timeshare. Fantasy owners shouldn't draft either player as more than a flex option.
Charles Clay, FB/TE8/4/2014 1:43:00 PM
Description: Dolphins tight end Charles Clay injured a knee and is expected to miss multiple practices and perhaps the first preseason game, according to Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald.
Insight: This should not impact his availability for the season opener. Clay was a breakout tight end in his third season hauling in 69 balls for 749 yards and six touchdowns after catching 34 in his first two seasons combined. If the Dolphins offensive line will improve, so he doesn't have to help as often, he could continue to move up the tight end ranking.
Mike Wallace, WR8/4/2014 11:24:00 AM
Description: Dolphins receiver Mike Wallace (hamstring) was back on the practice field Monday.
Insight: The injury wasn't serious, but he did miss five practices. If Wallace stays healthy he should have a much better season than he did in 2013 (73 catches, 930 yards, five touchdowns) with creative new OC Bill Lazor calling the shots.
Knowshon Moreno, RB8/1/2014 9:51:00 PM
Description: According to the Miami Herald, Dolphins running back Knowshon Moreno (knee) could miss the entire preseason.
Insight: Moreno was given a timetable of 4-5 weeks when he underwent his left knee scope in June, but he's now six weeks into his rehab. Lamar Miller has flown by Moreno on the depth chart and is the only Dolphins back fantasy owners should be drafting.
Mike Wallace, WR7/31/2014 7:58:00 PM
Description: Dolphins receiver Mike Wallace's hamstring injury will likely keep him out past Saturday's scrimmage, according to the Miami Herald.
Insight: The injury isn't serious, but it may cause him to miss the preseason opener next Friday and prevents him from getting valuable reps with Ryan Tannehill. If Wallace stays healthy he should have a much better season than he did in 2013 (73 catches, 930 yards, five touchdowns) with creative new OC Bill Lazor calling the shots.
Lamar Miller, RB7/27/2014 7:52:00 PM
Description: According to the Miami Herald, "there's a hope in Dolphins camp" that Lamar Miller can play the role of LeSean McCoy in new OC Bill Lazor's offense. Lazor spent last season as the Eagles' QB coach.
Insight: Miller has outplayed free agent acquisition Knowshon Moreno this offseason and is expected to be the unquestioned starter in Week 1. Moreno is still recovering from arthroscopic knee surgery. Miller put on 6-8 pounds of muscle this offseason after ranking 24th among running backs in yards after contact last season, and coach Joe Philbin doesn't think Miller has sacrificed any speed in getting bigger. McCoy led the NFL with 366 touches last season so Miller could be ticketed for a huge workload if Lazor is serious about making him the McCoy of its offense. We should see his seventh-round ADP rise in the coming weeks.
Ryan Tannehill, QB7/25/2014 11:25:00 AM
Description: According to Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald, the Dolphins will add the read-option to the offense this season.
Insight: The Dolphins QB is athletic and this could lead to more rushing yards and touchdown opportunities. It could also open him up to more injuries. Tannehill was much improved in Year 2 and could be a viable fantasy starter this season if he continues his upward trend.
Mike Pouncey, C7/23/2014 1:33:00 PM
Description: Dolphins center Mike Pouncey (hip) is expected to be out until late October, according to the Miami Herald.
Insight: Pouncey needed surgery to repair a torn labrum in his hip after suffering the injury during OTAs. He was initially expected to be out the first 3-4 weeks of the season, but now he may not return until the second half. Miami improved its putrid offensive line by signing Branden Albert and drafting Ja'Wuan James, but Pouncey's loss is a big one.
Dion Jordan, DE7/3/2014 8:55:00 PM
Description: Dolphins DE Dion Jordan has been suspended four games for PEDs.
Insight: Both the No. 3 and No. 4 picks (Jordan and Lane Johnson) in the 2013 NFL Draft have been popped for performance-enhancing drugs in the past week. Jordan had just two sacks as a rookie and was rumored to be on the trade block this offseason. This won't help his standing in Miami.
Knowshon Moreno, RB6/23/2014 9:36:00 PM
Description: According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, Dolphins running back Knowshon Moreno is expected to miss four-to-five weeks due to knee surgery.
Insight: That would give Moreno enough time to be ready for Week 1 of the regular season, but it will put him further behind Lamar Miller in the competition to be the starter. There wasn't expected to be any competition after Miami signed Moreno, but Moreno showed up a little out of shape and has been running mostly with the second team. Both players are going to be iffy fantasy options, especially with how bad the Dolphins' offensive line was last season.
Knowshon Moreno, RB6/20/2014 11:10:00 AM
Description: NBC Sports reported that Dolphins running back Knowshon Moreno may need left knee surgery.
Insight: We expected Moreno to win the top spot after a big year in Denver last season (1,038 yards rushing, 13 total TD), but this could explain why he was working with the second team. If true, and there is no confirmation at this time, Lamar Miller's fantasy value would take a giant leap forward.
Lamar Miller, RB6/17/2014 7:12:00 PM
Description: According to the Miami Herald, Dolphins running back Lamar Miller "remains clearly ahead" of Knowshon Moreno in the competition for the starting job.
Insight: Free agent acquisition Knowshon Moreno showed up to OTAs out of shape and has been working with the second team. Miller appears to have a realistic shot at starting the season opener but Moreno's presence will limit Miller's value.
Daniel Thomas, RBCold6/10/2014 11:04:00 AM
Description: Miami running back Daniel Thomas will struggle just to make the Dolphins roster this season and shouldn't have any fantasy value barring an injury to Lamar Miller or Knowshon Moreno.
Insight: A second round selection in 2011, Thomas has never lived up to expectations. He rushed 109 times for 406 yards and four touchdowns last season, but will have to work hard in training camp to beat out Mike Gillislee and Damien Williams just to make the team.
Mike Wallace, WR6/6/2014 12:04:00 PM
Description: Dolphins receiver Mike Wallace will apparently move around in the formation this season as opposed to last year when he lined up on the right side 90 percent of the time, according to a Palm Beach Post report.
Insight: Wallace finished the season with 73 receptions for 930 yards five touchdowns, but more was expected of him. He may be a much better fantasy value in 2014 with expectations lowered.
Lamar Miller, RB6/4/2014 9:33:00 PM
Description: According to the Miami Herald, Dolphins running back Lamar Miller has been taking a lot of snaps with the first team.
Insight: Free agent acquisition Knowshon Moreno showed up to OTAs out of shape and dropped a pass Wednesday at practice. Moreno has plenty of time to get on track and will probably start the season opener, though Miller could remain involved if he impresses this preseason. Moreno shouldn't be drafted as more than a 12-team league flex option this season.
Knowshon Moreno, RB6/3/2014 2:42:00 PM
Description: Dolphins running back Knowshon Moreno has been running with the second team in OTAs, according to Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald.
Insight: We expect Moreno to eventually win the top spot. Though Moreno had the best season of his career in 2013 (1,038 yards rushing, 13 total TD), he'll face a lot more players at the line this year with Ryan Tannehill under center. Fantasy owners who only consider last year's numbers will likely overbid for him on draft day.
Jarvis Landry, WR5/9/2014 9:29:00 PM
Description: The Dolphins have taken receiver Jarvis Landry out of LSU with the 63rd-overall pick in the NFL Draft.
Insight: Landry doesn't have great speed (ran 4.77 40) or size (5-11, 205), but he does have excellent hands, toughness and route-running ability. He could replace Brandon Gibson, who is coming off surgery to repair a torn left patellar tendon, as Miami's slot receiver as a rookie if he has a good camp.
Dustin Keller, TE4/30/2014 12:24:00 PM
Description: Free agent tight end Dustin Keller is meeting with the Patriots on Wednesday. SOURCE: Adam Schefter, ESPN
Insight: Signing Keller would be a curious move seeing as the Patriots already have one banged up tight end on their roster in Rob Gronkowski (torn ACL). Keller could be helpful for the Pats if healthy but he's still just eight months removed from a devastating knee injury.
Knowshon Moreno, RB3/27/2014 4:05:00 PM
Description: Former Broncos running back Knowshon Moreno has agreed to a deal with the Miami Dolphins.
Insight: Moreno had the best season of his career in 2013, rushing for 1,039 yards, catching 60 balls for 548 yards and scoring 13 times. He's not likely to match those totals in Florida where they don't have the receiving weapons or the quarterback to keep the defense occupied.
Cortland Finnegan, CB3/15/2014 5:58:00 PM
Description: According to NFL.com's Albert Breer, Cortland Finnegan's new deal with Miami is for two years and $11 million.
Insight: Finnegan was cut by the Rams about a week and a half ago. He posted 27 tackles in seven games last season. At age 30, Finnegan's best years are probably behind him.
Richie Incognito, G2/4/2014 5:37:00 PM
Description: Dolphins left guard Richie Incognito's suspension expired on Tuesday. SOURCE: Armando Salguero, Miami Herald
Insight: Incognito is now free to sign with any team of his choosing when he becomes a free agent next month. Following the Jonathan Martin bullying scandal, it's unlikely the former Pro-Bowler will be in high demand.
Brian Hartline, WR12/30/2013 9:24:00 PM
Description: Miami wideout Brian Hartline suffered a torn PCL in his left knee Sunday against the Jets. SOURCE: Armando Salguero, Miami Herald
Insight: It doesn't matter much now that the Dolphins won't be going to the postseason. A PCL tear is much less serious than an ACL tear, which means Hartline is in no danger of missing training camp next summer.
Brian Hartline, WR12/29/2013 2:04:00 PM
Description: Dolphins receiver Brian Hartline won't be returning to Sunday's game against the Jets. He's out with a knee injury. SOURCE: Adam Silverstein, OnlyGators.com
Insight: Early reports are indicating that it may be a torn ACL. Hartline will finish the regular season with 76 catches for 1,016 yards and four touchdowns.
Brian Hartline, WR12/29/2013 1:42:00 PM
Description: Miami wideout Brian Hartline hurt his knee early in Sunday's game against the Jets. His return is questionable. SOURCE: Greg Gumbel, CBS Sports
Insight: Hartline had 38 yards before exiting, which gives him 1,016 receiving yards for the year. It's the former Buckeye's second straight 1,000-yard season.
Ryan Tannehill, QB12/23/2013 12:54:00 PM
Description: Ryan Tannehill will have his knee tested on Monday. SOURCE: Albert Breer, NFL Network
Insight: The Dolphins QB bowed out of Sunday's game early and now he might need an MRI. With Miami's season on the line, it's going to take something pretty major for him to sit out next week's game against the Jets.
Ryan Tannehill, QBHot12/22/2013 3:30:00 PM
Description: Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill left Sunday's game at Buffalo in the fourth quarter.
Insight: Matt Moore has come on after Tannehill was sacked six times. Tannehill is questionable to return with a left knee injury, according to Chris Perkins of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel. He's thrown for just 82 yards on 10-of-21 passing and Miami is down 13-0.
Jake Long, T12/22/2013 1:55:00 PM
Description: Rams left tackle Jake Long left Sunday's game with a right knee injury and his return is questionable.
Insight: Long's was a non-contact injury which never bodes well. This won't make it easy for the rams' passing game or Zac Stacy running the ball.
Daniel Thomas, RB12/22/2013 12:40:00 PM
Description: Miami running back Daniel Thomas (ankle) is active Sunday against the Bills.
Insight: Thomas is not a fantasy option, but his presence limits the upside of Lamar Miller. Don't play either player if you can help it.
Richie Incognito, G12/16/2013 8:36:00 PM
Description: Miami guard Richie Incognito will be suspended with pay for the remainder of the season. SOURCE: Chris Mortensen, ESPN
Insight: The investigation into Incognito's alleged bullying of Jonathan Martin is ongoing. Neither player is expected to be back with Miami next season.
Mike Wallace, WR12/15/2013 5:56:00 PM
Description: Dolphins receiver Mike Wallace caught a touchdown for the third time in his last four games Sunday against New England.
Insight: Wallace also had his fourth 100-yard effort of the season. It followed a dud (two catches, 19 yards) in Week 14 against his former team, the Pittsburgh Steelers. Wallace has 867 yards and four TDs on 64 catches this year.
Ryan Tannehill, QBHot12/15/2013 5:28:00 PM
Description: Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill exceeded 20 fantasy points for the third straight game Sunday against New England with 312 yards and three scores.
Insight: Tannehill quietly has thrown eight touchdowns with just two interceptions in that span. He's thrown for 300-plus yards three times in the last four games.
Nolan Carroll, CB12/15/2013 3:46:00 PM
Description: Nolan Carroll left Sunday's game against the Patriots die to a knee injury. He's the second player from the Dolphis secondary injured today (Brent Grimes).
Insight: Tom Brady should be able to pick apart the Dolphis secondary down two men.
Lamar Miller, RB12/11/2013 8:43:00 PM
Description: Miami halfback Lamar Miller was a full participant at Wednesday's practice. SOURCE: Adam Beasley, Miami Herald
Insight: He appears to be over the concussion he suffered last week against the Steelers. Miller should be ready to go Sunday versus the Patriots. He ran for 89 yards against them in Week 8.
Lamar Miller, RB12/11/2013 12:03:00 PM
Description: Dolphins running back Lamar Miller (concussion) returned to practice Tuesday, according to an ESPN report.
Insight: Miller suffered a concussion in the third quarter Sunday against the Steelers and is questionable for Week 15 against New England. Even if he plays, he'll be stuck in a timeshare with Daniel Thomas, who had 105 yards and a touchdown on 16 carries against the Steelers.
R.J. Stanford, CB12/10/2013 1:55:00 PM
Description: The Dolphins placed backup corner R.J. Stanford on injured reserve with a broken leg.
Insight: Stanford was primarily depth and this shouldn't effect their defense.
Daniel Thomas, RBHot12/9/2013 2:28:00 PM
Description: Miami running back Daniel Thomas returned to the lineup Sunday and rushed for 105 yards.
Insight: Thomas was rumored to be out for the season with an ankle injury just a week ago, so this performance was a huge surprise. If starter Lamar Miller can't come back from a concussion he suffered Sunday, Thomas might have a chance to repeat the effort in Week 15.
Lamar Miller, RB12/8/2013 3:53:00 PM
Description: Dolphins halfback Lamar Miller is done for the day after suffering a concussion in the first half Sunday against Pittsburgh.
Insight: He finished with 20 yards on six carries. Daniel Thomas will be asked to anchor Miami's rushing attack though the Dolphins are probably looking to throw it as they trail 28-24 in the fourth quarter.
Daniel Thomas, RB12/8/2013 12:09:00 PM
Description: Miami running back Daniel Thomas will return to action Sunday against the Steelers.
Insight: Thomas was supposed to be out for the season with an ankle injury so this is quite a surprise. Fantasy owners planning on starting Lamar Miller in Week 14 may want to change their strategy.
Mike Wallace, WR12/1/2013 5:33:00 PM
Description: Miami wideout Mike Wallace put together consecutive double-digit fantasy point games for the first time all season with seven catches, 82 yards and a touchdown Sunday against the Jets.
Insight: That followed Wallace grabbing five passes for 127 yards and a touchdown in Week 12. He'll remain an all-or-nothing WR3 going into a showdown with his former team the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 14.
Brian Hartline, WR12/1/2013 5:30:00 PM
Description: Dolphins receiver Brian Hartline produced his first 100-yard game since Week 1 with 127 yards on nine catches Sunday against the Jets.
Insight: Hartline added his third touchdown of the season. He's been a solid PPR receiver this season, catching 62 passes for 804 yards in 12 games.
Richie Incognito, G11/29/2013 7:29:00 PM
Description: The Dolphins and guard Richie Incognito have agreed to a six-week cap on his suspension. SOURCE: ESPN
Insight: Martin's unpaid suspension has been reduced to two games. Overall, he was docked over $470,000 in salary. Martin, a Pro Bowler in 2012, was suspended last month for alleged bullying against teammate Jonathan Martin. Ted Wells, an independent arbitrator, is still finishing up his investigation.
Daniel Thomas, RB11/25/2013 1:23:00 PM
Description: Dolphins halfback Daniel Thomas apparently tore ligaments in his left ankle Sunday against Carolina and could be done for the season, according to Omar Kelly of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel.
Insight: Thomas was getting most of the backup carries behind Lamar Miller. It's likely that Mike Gillislee will take over that role while Thomas is sidelined.
Mike Wallace, WR11/24/2013 6:44:00 PM
Description: Miami wideout Mike Wallace busted out of his season-long slump Sunday in a loss to Carolina.
Insight: He finished with 127 yards on five catches. The stat line is a little deceiving as most of his yardage came on just two catches: a 53-yard touchdown in the first quarter and then a 57-yard grab to start the second. Still, it's good to see that Ryan Tannehill is looking his way again. The ten targets Wallace received were his most since October 27th against New England.
Daniel Thomas, RB11/24/2013 4:00:00 PM
Description: Dolphins halfback Daniel Thomas hurt his ankle Sunday against Carolina.
Insight: Thomas (three carries for eight yards) exited the game in the third quarter. Lamar Miller is going to see a heavy workload in his absence.
Mike Pouncey, C11/22/2013 5:06:00 PM
Description: Dolphins center Mike Pouncey (gallbladder) is doubtful for Sunday's game against the Panthers.
Insight: Miami is down to second- and third-stringers across the offensive line. Even without Charles Johnson (knee), the Panthers' dominant front seven should have a field day in Week 12.
Lamar Miller, RB11/17/2013 7:30:00 PM
Description: Miami running back Lamar Miller was given just four handoffs Sunday against the Chargers.
Insight: The Dolphins seemingly have given up on Miller as their lead tailback in favor of Daniel Thomas, who had 10 carries for 57 yards and a touchdown against San Diego. While that could change over the rest of the regular season, there's just no reason to own Miller anymore.
Mike Wallace, WR11/16/2013 4:04:00 PM
Description: Dolphins receiver Mike Wallace is expected to play Sunday versus San Diego. Wallace was limited in practice this week because of a hamstring issue. SOURCE: Barry Jackson, Miami Herald
Insight: He's officially listed as questionable on Miami's injury report. Wallace caught seven balls for 112 yards last year when he faced the Chargers. Of course, that was with Ben Roethlisberger throwing to him and not his current quarterback, Ryan Tannehill.
Mike Wallace, WR11/15/2013 8:41:00 PM
Description: Miami wideout Mike Wallace will carry the questionable label into Week 11's matchup with San Diego. SOURCE: Barry Jackson, Miami Herald
Insight: It's due to a sore hamstring. The former Steeler has 40 catches for 495 yards this season. He hasn't scored since Week 2.
Jonathan Martin, T11/6/2013 3:20:00 PM
Description: Miami offensive tackle Jonathan Martin has checked into a hospital to be treated for emotional distress. SOURCE: Chris Mortensen, ESPN
Insight: Martin left the team after being the victim of a bullying incident at the team's cafeteria last week. Since the incident, a recording of teammate Richie Incognito leaving a threatening voicemail for Martin has surfaced and now Incognito has been suspended indefinitely. Martin's college roommate at Stanford, Zach Ertz, now a tight end for the Philadelphia Eagles, said Martin expressed a desire to continue his NFL career in a phone conversation they had earlier this week. If Martin does decide to resume his football career at any point, there's a good chance it won't be with the Dolphins.
Richie Incognito, G11/4/2013 7:39:00 PM
Description: Miami guard Richie Incognito has been suspended indefinitely and may never play for the Dolphins again after allegedly harassing teammate Jonathan Martin with a threatening voicemail.
Insight: The transcript of the voicemail was released today and it is horrific. Martin, a second-year lineman out of Stanford, left the team last week after being bullied by teammates at the team's dining facility. Incognito has a history of questionable behavior both on and off the football field. The contents of Incognito's voicemail, which included a racial slur, are so damaging that USA Today's Tom Pelissero suspects he'll never play in the NFL again. Obviously, this ugly incident is far from being resolved and we'll keep you updated as we learn more.
Marlon Moore, WR11/4/2013 3:12:00 PM
Description: The Dolphins signed free agent wide receiver Marlon Moore.
Insight: Moore had been released by San Francisco in late October. He started his career with Miami, but his fantasy value is minimal given 12 career receptions over four seasons.
Brandon Gibson, WR10/28/2013 2:22:00 PM
Description: Dolphins receiver Brandon Gibson suffered a torn patellar tendon Sunday against New England and will undergo surgery on Monday according to Ian Rapoport of NFL.com.
Insight: He's out for the rest of the season. Gibson was just beginning to realize his fantasy potential with three touchdowns in his last two games. Rishard Matthews will be the Dolphins' No. 3 wideout now, but he's never done anything to get fantasy owners excited.
Brandon Gibson, WR10/27/2013 2:26:00 PM
Description: The left knee injury Dolphins wideout Brandon Gibson suffered Sunday against New England appears to be season-ending. SOURCE: Albert Breer, NFL.com
Insight: He's believed to have suffered a torn left patellar tendon. It's a shame because Gibson was just beginning to realize his fantasy potential with three touchdowns in his last two appearances.
Brandon Gibson, WR10/27/2013 1:42:00 PM
Description: Miami receiver Brandon Gibson suffered a left knee injury early in Sunday's game against the Patriots.
Insight: Nick Underhill of MassLive.com hears that Gibson is likely done for the day. He'll finish with one catch for four yards and a touchdown. Mike Wallace and Brian Hartline will have to pick up the slack in his absence.
Lamar Miller, RB10/20/2013 5:43:00 PM
Description: Miami running back Lamar Miller had 43 yards on nine carries Sunday against the Bills while Daniel Thomas saw 12 carries.
Insight: Thomas ran for 60 yards in the game. Miller is stuck in a timeshare and cannot be used as anything more than a low-end flex play until that changes.
Mike Wallace, WR10/9/2013 1:59:00 PM
Description: Buccaneers defensive coordinator Bill Sheridan said cornerback Darrell Revis will likely get a lot of time covering Mike Wallace Monday against the Dolphins.
Insight: The Buccaneers have played a lot of zone this season while waiting for Revis to make it back to 100 percent after reconstructive knee surgery. According to TampaBay.com, Revis is getting to the point where he can press receivers more often and has the stamina to race step-for-step on go routes. "I'm getting back to my old self," Revis said. "I'm feeling very comfortable. The knee is feeling a lot better, the leg is feeling a lot better" Wallace leads the Dolphins with 480 yards in his first season with the team, but he should only be used as a low-end WR3 in 10-team leagues this week.
Lamar Miller, RB10/6/2013 6:51:00 PM
Description: Miami running back Lamar Miller had a string of three straight 60-yard rushing games snapped Sunday against the Ravens.
Insight: Miller rushed for 15 yards on seven carries. The running back's season high in carries is jus 14 and he has run the football 26 times total over the last three games. He's not doing anything in the passing game, either, catching just five passes for 21 yards. Fantasy owners cannot afford to start a player getting so few touches.
Mike Wallace, WR10/6/2013 6:43:00 PM
Description: Dolphins receiver Mike Wallace saw 16 looks from Ryan Tannehill Sunday against the Ravens and came away with seven catches and 105 yards.
Insight: Wallace had 28 targets in the first four weeks combined, but the Dolphins made it a point to get their big-money receiver the ball Sunday. His targets will likely remain inconsistent..
Charles Clay, FB/TE10/6/2013 6:40:00 PM
Description: Dolphins tight end Charles Clay has a touchdown catch in each of the last two games. He had three catches for 52 yards Sunday against the Ravens.
Insight: He has at least 40 receiving yards in all five games this season and appears to have the trust of Ryan Tannehill.
