Rishard Matthews started the Dolphins' third preseason game over Kenny Stills.

Stills battled a calf injury early in camp and missed the first couple weeks of practice in addition to the first preseason game. Across 35 snaps this preseason, Stills has caught 3-of-4 targets for 31 scoreless yards. It's still early, and Stills has gobs of talent, but he needs to stay on the field and start building a rapport with Ryan Tannehill. Jarvis Landry, Greg Jennings, and Matthews started on Saturday, with Stills mixing in behind them. OC Bill Lazor recently praised Matthews.

Fourth-rounder Jamil Douglas has passed Billy Turner in the Dolphins' right-guard competition.

Douglas has slowly started getting more reps with the first-team offense at the expense of Turner over the past couple weeks, and the two players were notified of the switch on Monday. Douglas was initially supposed to push LG Dallas Thomas, but Thomas has played well after a rough first two seasons.

DeVante Parker (foot) resumed practicing Monday, and the Dolphins are "quietly hopeful" he'll be ready for Week 1.

Parker's limited session on Monday was his first practice of any kind since his June operation. With only 13 days to get in game shape, Parker will undoubtedly will be on a snap count for the opener, but he could be worked into the offense quickly. Parker remains worth stashing as a WR4/5.

Dolphins C Mike Pouncey said he will practice on Monday.

Pouncey was forced from the team's third preseason game with a knee injury, but the MRI came back negative. He will be good to go for Week 1.

ESPN Dolphins reporter James Walker expects Kelvin Sheppard to stay at middle linebacker.

Sheppard began camp as a fill-in for Koa Misi, but instead of returning to middle linebacker, Misi replaced Chris McClain on the outside. Walker said Sheppard "hasn't been spectacular" this preseason but he's done enough to hold onto the starting job. The 27-year-old only played 121 snaps last season.

Kenny Stills caught two passes for 26 yards in Miami's third preseason game.

Stills missed the first couple weeks of Dolphins camp, but has recorded three grabs for 31 yards after sitting out the first preseason game. Stills is clearly in the back seat behind Jarvis Landry for targets among Dolphins receivers. He's not going to bring much consistency and is merely on the WR4 radar.

Jarvis Landry caught five passes for 84 yards in the Dolphins' third preseason game Saturday night.

Landry was targeted a team-high six times among the Dolphins' first-teamers. His big gain was a 46-yard pickup over the middle where Landry chewed up plenty of yards-after-catch. Through three preseason games, Landry has caught 11-of-13 targets for 115 yards and one touchdown. He also saw plenty of looks in the red zone. Landry is shaping up as a solid WR3 with WR2 upside in PPR.

Jordan Cameron caught his lone target for six yards in the Dolphins' third preseason game Saturday night.

With the Dolphins likely to sit their starters for the final preseason game, Cameron had a very quiet preseason, catching just two passes for six scoreless yards on three targets. Jarvis Landry and Cameron work the same areas of the field, and Ryan Tannehill and Landry clearly have a much stronger rapport at this point. Cameron is in a tier with many others as a mid-to-low TE1.

Lamar Miller rushed for 22 yards on six carries in Saturday's third preseason game.

He also caught all five of his targets for another 31 yards. Through three preseason games, Miller has rushed for 59 yards on 12 carries (4.91 YPC) and reeled in seven passes for 69 yards. With Ryan Tannehill loving to check down and work the short-to-intermediate parts of the field, Miller will get his fair share of targets. Currently being drafted as RB12, we like Miller in standard and PPR formats.

Ryan Tannehill completed 15-of-19 passes for 145 yards and one touchdown in Saturday's third preseason game.

It was about as perfect as Tannehill and the Dolphins could have hoped for in the regular-season dress rehearsal. He and Jarvis Landry hooked up five times for 84 yards on six targets, including a long 46-yard gain over the middle where Landry chewed up plenty of YAC. Tannehill found Rishard Matthews for his lone score, hooking up on a quick pass from two yards out. After three preseason games, Tannehill is 33-of-41 (80.4 percent) for 303 yards, three touchdowns, and zero interceptions. He's looking like a strong back-end QB1 with upside.
Aug 29 - 8:27 PM

Dolphins C Mike Pouncey was forced from Saturday's third preseason game with a knee injury.

Pouncey was hurt on the opening series. He quickly returned, but later left again, suggesting it might not be very serious. J.D. Walton is in at center for Miami. Pouncey will head for an MRI on the knee Sunday morning.
Aug 29 - 7:43 PM

ESPN's Adam Caplan reports Dolphins LT Branden Albert (knee) is unlikely to return before Week 3.

It's a big blow for the Dolphins' shaky offensive line, and means fill-in Jason Fox will make at least two starts on Ryan Tannehill's blindside. Fox is missing Saturday's regular season dress rehearsal, leaving Tannehill to fend for himself behind his third string left tackle, Dallas Thomas. Albert is still barely 10 months removed from tearing up his knee. Week 3 shouldn't be considered a certainty.

The Palm Beach Post called LB Koa Misi a "constant on Dolphins defense no matter where he plays."

Misi recorded a career-high 66 tackles in 2014 and will look to further improve in the Miami defense led by new addition Ndamukong Suh. The Miami D/ST is currently being drafted eighth among fantasy defenses and draws a decent matchup in Week 1 against the Washington Redskins. The addition of Suh alone makes this D/ST worth pursuing in fantasy leagues.

Dolphins OC Bill Lazor said WR Rishard Matthews is having his most consistent camp.

"He’s made plays in virtually every practice — down the field, physical plays, fast plays," Lazor said. "I’m really proud of him and rooting for him." Matthews tried to force his way out of Miami after the Dolphins added three receivers this offseason, but it appears he has settled into the No. 5 spot on the depth chart. The 25-year-old has flashed when given opportunities in the past and could be an interesting trade chip if Miami feels comfortable with their depth at wide receiver.
Aug 29 - 10:25 AM

ESPN Dolphins reporter James Walker expects Jarvis Landry to "do a lot of damage in the red zone" this season.

Walker "wouldn't be surprised" if Landry doubles his TD total (5) from last season and becomes a double-digit touchdown scorer. It's been clear since last season that Landry is Ryan Tannehill's favorite target, and if Miami's second preseason game was any indication, Landry is going to be a preferred option near the goal line. On back-to-back third- and fourth-and-goal plays, Tannehill threw to Landry. He'll likely threaten 90 catches and eight scores.
