Daniel Thomas rushed for 25 yards on seven carries and caught three passes for 25 yards in the Dolphins' Week 7 win over the Bears.

Thomas operated as Lamar Miller's clear No. 2. He got a couple series to himself, at one point touching the ball on 5-of-7 plays on a second-quarter drive, but that was mostly it. With Knowshon Moreno (knee) done for the season, we'd expect Thomas to be Miller's backup for the duration of the season.

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.
Oct 19 - 5:35 PM

Jarvis Landry caught four passes for 46 yards in the Dolphins' Week 7 win over the Bears.

Landry has officially moved ahead of Brandon Gibson at slot receiver, as Gibson was a healthy scratch on Sunday. Landry was targeted five times on the afternoon as the No. 3 option in the passing game behind Mike Wallace and Charles Clay. He'll flirt with WR4/5 numbers with Tannehill strong as an intermediate passer.
Oct 19 - 5:31 PM

Mike Wallace caught five passes for 46 yards and one touchdown in the Dolphins' Week 7 win over the Bears.

Wallace was targeted a team-high eight times on the day. He beat CB Tim Jennings to the corner of the end zone for a 10-yard touchdown in the second quarter. Wallace and Ryan Tannehill continue to struggle on deep looks, but Wallace keeps scoring touchdowns and is on pace for a career-high 13 of them. He's a legit WR1/2. Wallace has a tasty date in Jacksonville next week.
Oct 19 - 5:12 PM

Charles Clay caught four passes for 58 yards and one touchdown in the Dolphins' Week 7 win over the Bears.

It was easily Clay's best game of the season. He was targeted five times and scored his first touchdown of the year, beating SLB Shea McClellin, who fell down in coverage, for the 13-yard score in the first quarter. Clay has a decent matchup with the Jaguars next week, but he's still more of a middling TE2.
Oct 19 - 4:56 PM

Lamar Miller rushed for 61 yards and one touchdown on 18 carries in Miami's Week 7 win over Chicago.

He caught two passes for an additional 22 yards. Miller and Daniel Thomas rotated a bit, but Miller ended up out-touched behind his backfield mate 20-10. Miller also had a late four-yard touchdown called back on a holding penalty. It could have been a much bigger day. He's a legit RB1 in an offense that wants to run the ball. Fire him up with confidence against the Jaguars in Week 8.
Oct 19 - 4:26 PM

Ryan Tannehill completed 25-of-32 passes for 277 yards, two touchdowns, and zero interceptions in the Dolphins' 27-14, Week 7 win over the Bears.

Tannehill added 48 yards on the ground. With the Bears minus WLB Lance Briggs, FS Chris Conte, and CB Kyle Fuller, Tannehill completed his first 14 passes of the day, and ended the day with a cool 123.6 passer rating. Tannehill found Charles Clay wide open for a 13-yard touchdown early when SLB Shea McClellin fell down in coverage before then delivering a 10-yard score to Mike Wallace, beating CB Tim Jennings. The only negative was Tannehill was swallowed for four sacks. He has a plus date with the Jaguars on the road next Sunday.
Oct 19 - 3:53 PM

Dolphins declared WR Brandon Gibson, DB Jimmy Wilson, OG Shelley Smith, OT Jason Fox, DT Anthony Johnson, OG Billy Turner, and TE Gator Hoskins inactive for Week 7 against the Bears.

Gibson (hamstring, probable) is basically a healthy scratch. Rookie Jarvis Landry has pulled away from Gibson for slot duties, and Gibson doesn't play special teams. This will be Gibson's final year in Miami after ex-GMJeff Ireland handed him a three-year, $9.755 million deal two springs ago. Samson Satele will start at center for the Dolphins, with Mike Pouncey likely playing right guard.
Oct 19 - 11:32 AM

Brian Hartline (finger) is probable for Week 7 against the Bears.

Hartline didn't miss any practice time despite being listed on the injury report. He was held without a catch last week, and is going to continue to lose targets to Jarvis Landry going forward.
Oct 18 - 2:51 PM

Mike Pouncey would move to center if Samson Satele (hamstring) is unable to play in the Dolphins Week 7 matchup with the Bears.

The Dolphins line played well with Satele at center and Pouncey at guard last week, but the injury may force Miami to make a move. Shelley Smith would slot in at right guard if Satele cannot go.
Oct 18 - 1:28 PM

Dolphins WR Jarvis Landry is expected to see "significant action" against the Bears Week 7.

Landry broke out with five catches for 71 yards and a touchdown with Brandon Gibson (hamstring) sidelined Week 6. Gibson is expected to return this week, but Landry's play has earned him more snaps. Landry is not a starting fantasy option as long as Gibson is involved, but he is an excellent dynasty stash and has the talent to be a redraft factor this season.
Oct 18 - 12:00 PM

Brandon Gibson (hamstring) is probable for Week 7 against the Bears.

Gibson will return after missing only one game. Jarvis Landry should get the majority of snaps in three-wide sets after posting a 6/75/1 line last week.
Oct 17 - 8:12 PM

Charles Clay (knee) is listed as probable for Week 7.

Clay will continue to play through his knee injury. He's just a low-end TE2.
Oct 17 - 8:04 PM

Ryan Tannehill (ankle) is listed as probable for Week 7.

Tannehill will be a two-quarterback-league option against the Bears.
Oct 17 - 3:15 PM

Lamar Miller (knee) is listed as probable for Week 7.

He'll be the Dolphins' feature back Sunday at Soldier Field.
