Brian Hartline was held without a catch on two targets in Miami's Week 15 loss to the Patriots.

One of Hartline's missed connections was a deep ball he lost in the sun. Hartline has three catches for 20 yards over his past three games.
Dec 14 - 6:13 PM

Brian Hartline caught 2-of-4 targets for 11 yards and a touchdown in Miami's Week 14 loss to the Ravens.

Paid like a prince, Hartline continues to produce like a pauper. He enters Week 15 with all of 34 catches on the year.
Dec 7 - 6:06 PM

Brian Hartline (knee) is listed as probable for Week 14.

Hartline was limited in practice throughout the week, but won't miss any time. He's behind Mike Wallace and Jarvis Landry for targets and no higher than the No. 3 option.
Dec 5 - 6:33 PM

Brian Hartline (knee) was limited in Wednesday's practice.

Hartline is day to day. He's expected to be available for Week 14 barring a setback. Hartline has just seven catches over his last four games.
Dec 3 - 6:55 PM

Brian Hartline's knee injury is just a bruise, and he's expected to be available for Week 14.

That's "barring a setback." The Dolphins' No. 3 receiver has seven catches over his past four games.
Dec 2 - 4:51 PM

The knee injury Brian Hartline sustained Monday night is not believed to be serious.

Hartline is likely dealing with a sprain of Grade 1 or 2 variety. With Jarvis Landry coming on strong over the last month, Hartline has rightfully been relegated to the Riley Cooper role in Bill Lazor's offense anyway. The Dolphins won't miss him if he has to sit.
Dec 2 - 8:52 AM

Brian Hartline exited Monday night's Week 13 game against the Jets with a knee injury and will not return.

Hartline originally hurt the knee in the first half. He jogged it off to come on for another couple plays, but was eventually ruled out for the remainder of the night at halftime. Brandon Gibson and Rishard Matthews will see more snaps. Hartline caught his lone target for nine yards before leaving. He's a non-factor.
Dec 1 - 10:05 PM

Brian Hartline caught 2-of-2 targets for 39 yards in Miami's Week 12 loss to the Broncos.

The wildly overpaid No. 2 receiver now has 31 catches on the season.
Nov 23 - 8:30 PM

Brian Hartline caught 3-of-4 targets for 55 yards in the Dolphins' Week 11 win over the Bills.

It was a veritable explosion for the forgotten No. 3 receiver, who did a lot of damage after the catch. The yards were Hartline's second most of the season. He remains miles from relevance in 12-14 team leagues.
Nov 14 - 12:09 AM

Brian Hartline isn't complaining about his lack of targets this season.

Hartline's 43 looks are just 60th in the league. His 134 targets in 2013 were more than all but 17 receivers. "Coaches can use me as they see fit," Hartline said of his reduced playing time. Phasing out Hartline's involvement has been the absolute right move for the Dolphins, though he's grossly overpaid at $4.785 million this season. Hartline is currently due $5.9 million in 2015. That number will almost certainly be reworked.
Nov 11 - 10:23 PM

Brian Hartline caught his lone target for one yard in Miami's Week 10 loss to the Lions.

The NFL's most overpaid player now owns a 26/266/1 line through the Dolphins' first nine games.
Nov 9 - 6:36 PM

Brian Hartline caught five passes for 50 yards in Week 9 against the Chargers.

Hartline was targeted seven times. It'll probably go down as one of Hartline's most productive games of the season. He has no fantasy value.
Nov 2 - 4:49 PM

Brian Hartline caught 1-of-4 targets for 19 yards in Miami's Week 8 win over the Jaguars.

Rapidly fading from any sort of relevance, Hartline now has four catches over his past three games.
Oct 26 - 7:05 PM

Brian Hartline caught three passes for 35 yards in the Dolphins' Week 7 win over Chicago.

Hartline saw just the three targets. He's deep down the pecking order for Ryan Tannehill, working mainly as an outside safety valve who isn't going to go off for a big play or score touchdowns. Hartline is barely a WR5/6.
