DeVante Parker (finger) believes he was healthy enough to play Week 2 against the Jets.

Parker was a surprise inactive after getting in full practices Thursday and Friday. Asked if he was okay with being inactive, Parker responded, "Of course not." Miami's offense has not been great, but they are 2-0 and already have four receivers commanding targets. Even if Parker is active next week, it is not a given he will have a role. Perhaps he gets traded in the coming weeks a la Jay Ajayi last season.
Sep 17 - 9:35 AM

Kenny Stills caught 2-of-3 targets for 17 yards in the Dolphins' Week 2 win over the Jets.

Stills teased his upside with a monster Week 1, then returned to Earth in Week 2 as the Dolphins needed only 17 completions and 168 yards to beat the Jets. In a low-volume passing offense, Stills will remain a dicey week-to-week proposition as a WR3/flex play. He does get a plus draw next against Oakland.
Sep 16 - 6:37 PM

Jakeem Grant caught 2-of-4 targets for 37 yards in the Dolphins' Week 2 win over the Jets.

Grant led the Dolphins in Week 1 targets with 7, then took a backseat against the Jets. He is the No. 4 receiver behind Kenny Stills, Danny Amendola, and Albert Wilson, and DeVante Parker could be activated at any time.
Sep 16 - 6:24 PM

Danny Amendola caught 4-of-4 targets for 32 yards in the Dolphins' Week 2 win over the Jets.

He has drawn 6 and 4 targets through two games in Miami's low-volume passing offense, where Ryan Tannehill has yet to attempt 30 throws. Amendola is capable of flirting with PPR value in games where Tannehill is forced to throw more, but the Dolphins' game plans are consistently balanced to run heavy.
Sep 16 - 6:23 PM

Mike Gesicki was not targeted in the Dolphins' Week 2 win over the Jets.

Gesicki has a world of talent, but he's simply not a big part of Miami's passing game yet. He has played behind AJ Derby in each of the Dolphins' first two games and doesn't warrant a roster spot outside of Dynasty leagues.
Sep 16 - 6:21 PM

Albert Wilson caught 3-of-5 targets for 37 yards and a touchdown in the Dolphins' Week 2 win over the Jets.

He beat Buster Skrine for a 29-yard score but was otherwise quiet. Operating as Miami's No. 3/4 receiver in a rotation with Danny Amendola, Kenny Stills, and Jakeem Grant, Wilson has drawn 4 and 5 targets through two weeks. The Dolphins' low-volume passing offense limits the upside of all its members. Wilson led the team in receiving yards with just 37 on Sunday.
Sep 16 - 6:15 PM

Frank Gore rushed nine times for 25 yards and caught his lone target for a gain of 19 in the Dolphins' Week 2 win over the Jets.

He remained the second portion of Miami's RBBC, logging 10 touches to Kenyan Drake's 15. Gore did handle heavy work in crunchtime as the Fins worked to maintain a fourth-quarter one-score lead. Gore is a low-upside flex option, but his role is secure. He should get 8-12 touches in Week 3 versus Oakland.
Sep 16 - 4:15 PM

Kenyan Drake rushed 11 times for 53 yards and a touchdown and caught 4-of-4 targets for 17 yards in the Dolphins' Week 2 win over the Jets.

Drake's touchdown came from six yards out on a perfectly-blocked inside-zone run in the first half. Leading by one score late in the fourth quarter, it was notable that Frank Gore operated as Miami's clock killer over Drake. Drake out-touched Gore 15 to 10, but this remains a committee and will stay one so long as Gore maintains effectiveness. Drake will be an RB2 in Week 3 versus Oakland.
Sep 16 - 4:11 PM

Ryan Tannehill completed 17-of-23 passes for 168 yards and two touchdowns in the Dolphins' Week 2 win over the Jets.

He also rushed eight times for 44 yards. Tannehill's best throw of the day was a laser 19-yard score to AJ Derby, and his other touchdown went to Albert Wilson on a catch and run. Tannehill's pass attempt totals through two games are 28 and 23 in consecutive wins over the Titans and Jets. The Dolphins have another very winnable game on deck versus the Raiders in Miami. Being used as a low-volume game manager, Tannehill will be a low-ceiling QB2 in Week 3.
Sep 16 - 4:09 PM

Danny Amendola exited Sunday's Week 2 game to be checked for a concussion, but returned.

He had three catches on three targets for 27 yards before briefly exiting, then returning.
Sep 16 - 2:01 PM

Dolphins declared RB Kalen Ballage, WR DeVante Parker, QB Luke Falk, QB David Fales, OT Zach Sterup, and CB Cordrea Tankersley inactive for Week 2 against the Jets.

Ballage has been a healthy inactive for each of his first two NFL games.
Sep 16 - 11:49 AM

DeVante Parker (finger) is inactive for Week 2 against the Jets.

Parker is essentially a healthy scratch after it was reported late in the week he would make his 2018 debut. Instead, the Fins are sticking with Kenny Stills, Danny Amendola, Albert Wilson, and Jakeem Grant as their top-four receivers. The Dolphins should soon begin listening to trade offers for Parker.
Sep 16 - 11:40 AM

DeVante Parker (finger) is questionable for Week 2 against the Jets.

It's surprising the Dolphins are listing him this way after Parker returned to full practice on Thursday. Regardless of his status, Parker should be a go for Sunday's game in East Rutherford. Parker played well in his lone game against the Jets last year, turning in eight catches for 76 yards and a touchdown. Still, he's a risky start coming off a long absence.
Sep 14 - 2:04 PM

Dolphins LG Josh Sitton will miss the remainder of the season with a torn rotator cuff in his left shoulder.

Signed to a two-year deal after he was released by the Bears, 32-year-old Sitton lasts one game with his new squad. Sitton had previously dealt with right shoulder issues. Miami will replace Sitton in the lineup with veteran Ted Larsen. It's a significant downgrade for an already-weak offensive line.
Sep 14 - 9:50 AM

DeVante Parker (finger) was upgraded to a full practice on Thursday.

All signs point to Parker suiting up in Week 2. The 25-year-old makes for a risky fantasy bet coming off injury. The Dolphins' receiver corps is in danger of descending into a five-man free-for-all for the time being.
