Damien Williams (shoulder) is doubtful for Week 15 against the Bills.

Williams resumed practicing on Thursday but it doesn't look like he'll be game-ready for at least another week. The Dolphins can afford to take their time with Kenyan Drake playing so well. In the likely event that Williams sits, Drake will be an RB1 against Buffalo.
Dec 15 - 3:05 PM

Damien Williams (shoulder) returned to a limited practice on Thursday.

It's the first time we've seen Williams since suffering a shoulder injury against the Patriots in Week 12. Even if Williams gets the nod to play Sunday at Buffalo, Kenyan Drake (334 yards from scrimmage over his last two games) will remain an RB1 in fantasy.
Dec 14 - 2:00 PM

Damien Williams (shoulder) remained sidelined at Wednesday's practice.

Williams hasn't played or practiced since injuring his shoulder in Week 12. With Kenyan Drake dominating, Williams may have to settle for a backup role upon his return.
Dec 13 - 6:31 PM

Dolphins CB Xavien Howard was named AFC Defensive Player of the Week for Week 14.

Howard was incredible in the Dolphins' upset win over the Patriots this past Monday night. He picked off Tom Brady twice, becoming only the second player to do so over the last 10 seasons, and Howard was simply terrific in coverage all night. Over the last three games, Pro Football Focus has charted Howard with seeing 17 targets in his coverage. He's allowed two catches for 30 yards in that span, while picking off four and swatting away four others.

The Miami Herald's Armando Salguero reports the Dolphins could shut down S Michael Thomas (PCL).

Thomas has been dealing with a torn PCL for weeks, but he has played through the issue. Salguero reports the "latest MRI was [a] concern," however, and Thomas has experienced some swelling which could force him to injured reserve. Thomas has played 30 snaps total on defense the last five games.
Dec 12 - 11:10 AM

Julius Thomas caught 2-of-4 targets for 11 yards in the Dolphins' Week 14 win over the Patriots.

Jay Cutler barely missed Thomas on two deep passes which would have ignited his stat line. Thomas has now crossed 30 yards just twice all season and isn't anything more than a touchdown or bust streaming option in Week 15.
Dec 12 - 1:05 AM

Kenny Stills caught 2-of-4 targets for 18 yards and in the Dolphins' Week 14 win over the Patriots.

Stills was relatively quiet in a game the Dolphins thoroughly dominated. With Cutler at the helm, Stills is an unreliable WR4 with upside.
Dec 12 - 1:01 AM

Jakeem Grant caught 2-of-4 targets for 42 yards and a touchdown in the Dolphins Week 14 win over the Patriots.

Grant's touchdown catch came on a jump ball over Malcolm Butler where he did a great job getting in position to make the catch. Despite turning in a solid fantasy performance, Grant shouldn't be on the radar in Week 15 as the Dolphins fourth or fifth receiving option.
Dec 12 - 12:59 AM

DeVante Parker caught 4-of-6 targets for 40 yards in the Dolphins' Week 14 win over the Patriots.

The Dolphins tried to get Parker involved early, designing an easy crossing route to try and get him going. Unfortunately, he took his eyes off the ball and dropped it. Parker's game didn't get much better, finishing with only 40 yards. This is his fourth straight game with less than 50 yards. He is a low-floor WR4 against Buffalo in Week 15.
Dec 12 - 12:55 AM

Jay Cutler completed 25-of-38 passes for 263 yards and three touchdowns in the Dolphins' Week 14 win over the Patriots.

Cutler played his best game of the season so far, threading the Patriots secondary with ease. His receivers got open at will against the Patriots man defense. He threw two short touchdowns to Jarvis Landry as well as a 25-yarder to Jakeem Grant. Despite turning in a good performance this week, Cutler won't be more than a mid-range QB2 against Buffalo in Week 15.
Dec 12 - 12:49 AM

Jarvis Landry caught 8-of-8 targets for 46 yards and two touchdowns in the Dolphins' Week 14 win over the Patriots.

Landry played a big part in the Dolphins' win over the Patriots, especially his red zone efficiency. His first touchdown came on a play-action bootleg from five yards out. His second touchdown came from four yards out where he successfully sat in between two linebackers in the Patriots zone. Landry has an easy matchup against the Bills defense in Week 15.
Dec 12 - 12:33 AM

Kenyan Drake rushed 25 times for 114 yards and caught 5-of-6 targets for 79 yards in the Dolphins' Week 14 win over the Patriots.

Drake looked electric as the Dolphins' workhorse. On two occasions he dodged an unblocked blitzing player behind the line of scrimmage and ran for a big gain. The Dolphins took advantage of Drake's pass-catching ability, lining him out wide against Patriots' linebackers and creating an easy mismatch, resulting in multiple big plays. His diverse skill set has opened up their offense. Drake will be a high-upside RB1 in Week 15 against the Bills as long as RB Damien Williams remains sidelined.
Dec 12 - 12:15 AM

Dolphins declared RB Damien Williams, QB Matt Moore, CB Cordrea Tankersley, OG Isaac Asiata, G/T Jermon Bushrod, DE Cameron Malveaux, and TE AJ Derby inactive for Week 14 against the Patriots.

Williams was already ruled out with a shoulder issue, and Tankersley has ankle and shoulder injuries. Kenyan Drake will remain a volume-driven RB2.
Dec 11 - 7:13 PM

Damien Williams (shoulder) has been ruled out for Week 14.

He'll miss his second straight game. Williams has yet to practice since going down in Week 12. Kenyan Drake will continue to have an every-down role and is an RB2 against the Patriots.
Dec 9 - 3:10 PM

Damien Williams (shoulder) will not practice Thursday.

It looks like Williams is headed for another absence, but he does have an extra day with the Dolphins playing on Monday night. Kenyan Drake will be a must-start option if Williams is forced to sit again.
