Frank Gore rushed six times for 12 yards in the Dolphins' Week 3 win over the Raiders.

Gore got the "start." That's about all he did as the Dolphins needed just 39 total plays to rip the Raiders. Most of the action came through the air. Gore has been heavily involved through the Dolphins' first three games but has done little to suggest he's going to threaten Kenyan Drake's touch superiority.

Danny Amendola caught 3-of-3 targets for 42 yards in the Dolphins' Week 3 win over the Raiders.

That's about what Amendola has done all three games in a Dolphins uniform. He's the chain-mover in a receiver corps full of big-play threats. Even in PPR leagues, it is not going to translate to fantasy value.

Albert Wilson caught 2-of-2 targets for 74 yards and a touchdown in the Dolphins' Week 3 win over the Raiders, adding a 52-yard touchdown pass.

For the passing touchdown, Wilson got the ball on a double reverse then delivered a perfect strike down the right sideline to Jakeem Grant. For the receiving, Wilson took a shovel pass from Ryan Tannehill, found the edge, hit the hole and exploded through the Raiders' entire defense for a 74-yard score. Electrifying stuff. Of course, Wilson has just eight grabs through three games. He will make big plays in the Dolphins' creative offense, but the road to re-draft value is too long and winding.

Jakeem Grant caught 2-of-3 targets for 70 yards and two touchdowns in the Dolphins' Week 3 win over the Raiders.

That's maximizing your opportunities. The highlight was a 52-yard score Grant caught from Albert Wilson on an Andy Reid-type play. Ryan Tannehill handed the ball to Frank Gore who flipped it to Wilson on a double reverse. Wilson then delivered a perfect strike to Grant down the right sideline. Grant flashed some Tyreek Hill-type speed and moves as he finished the job to score. The Dolphins are using Grant in creative ways — even with DeVante Parker back in the lineup — but the volume just isn't going to be there.
Sep 23 - 6:39 PM

Kenny Stills caught 3-of-5 targets for 61 yards and a touchdown in the Dolphins' Week 3 win over the Raiders.

Stills' score — his third in three games — was a 34-yarder where he got a step on Marcus Gilchrist and Ryan Tannehill threw it where only Stills could grab it in the end zone. Stills has now cleared 60 yards in 2-of-3 games but has just 13 total targets. That is going to make it difficult to provide weekly WR3 value. Stills is a WR4 you can plug in with genuine optimism he will reach his upside.

Making his season debut, DeVante Parker caught 2-of-3 targets for 40 yards in the Dolphins' Week 3 win over the Raiders.

The majority of Parker's production came on a 36-yard gain in the third quarter where he beat Gareon Conley down the right sideline. It was the kind of big play the Dolphins need from Parker. Perhaps he will provide more, but the 'Fins are employing a full-blown, five-man receiver committee. Unless Parker displays a gear he did not the first three years of his career, it's hard to see him threatening for WR4 value in fantasy leagues.

Kenyan Drake rushed five times for three yards in the Dolphins' Week 3 win over the Raiders, adding two catches for seven additional yards.

It was a nightmare fantasy day in a golden matchup, but the Dolphins ran an absurdly low 39 plays. It was just bizarre game flow. Drake did watch as Frank Gore got the "start," though he out-touched his veteran teammate 7-6. We've been expecting — hoping? — Drake to banish Gore to the bench but through three games it is not looking imminent. Drake might be best downgraded to the RB2/3 borderline until he has a breakout game or officially renders Gore a non-factor. The Patriots will present another opportunity for a strong fantasy day in Week 4.

Ryan Tannehill completed 17-of-23 passes for 289 yards and three touchdowns in the Dolphins' 28-20, Week 3 win over the Raiders, adding three carries for 26 additional yards.

Tannehill could have had an even bigger day, but 52 of the Dolphins' 332 passing yards came from Albert Wilson on a trick play touchdown. Tannehill was making tight-window throws all afternoon, with the highlight his 34-yard touchdown strike to Kenny Stills in the second quarter. Stills got behind Marcus Gilchrist in the end zone and Tannehill put it where only Stills could catch it. Tannehill has picked up where he left off on his Adam Gase-fueled 2016, reviving the Dolphins' offense in the process. They've had the looks of a poor man's Chiefs through three games. Emphasis on poor man's. Tannehill will be put to the test in Week 4, when the Dolphins travel to New England. Like 2017, the Pats' defense is off to a slow start.

Dolphins DE William Hayes was forced from Sunday's game against the Raiders with a knee injury and will not return.

Hayes was injured on a second quarter sack of Derek Carr. He appeared to be in immense pain and could be dealing with a serious injury.
Sep 23 - 2:54 PM

Dolphins SS Reshad Jones (shoulder) is inactive for Week 3 against the Raiders.

Jones had been expected to play. His absence is a nice boost for Derek Carr and Jared Cook. Minkah Fitzpatrick should be an every-down player with Jones on the shelf.
Sep 23 - 12:12 PM

DeVante Parker (finger) is officially active for Week 3 against the Raiders.

The Dolphins haven't seemed overly thrilled with Parker this season, but he should immediately slots into three-receiver sets. He's a WR4/5 for his 2018 debut. Inactive for the Dolphins are QB Luke Falk, QB David Fales, WR Tanner McEvoy, S Reshad Jones, CB Cordrea Tankersley, RB Kalen Ballage and OT Zach Sterup.

Ryan Tannehill was taken off the Week 3 injury report.

Tannehill was listed with knee/ankle injures this week but didn't miss any practice time. Playing against a Raiders secondary that's been better than expected, Tannehill is a low-ceiling QB2 for Week 3.
Sep 21 - 8:49 PM

DeVante Parker (finger) was not listed on the Week 3 injury report.

It means Parker is healthy enough to play, but according to the receiver, that was also the case when he was inactive last week. It remains to be seen if he will be active against the Raiders. He will not be a fantasy option even if he is.
Sep 21 - 8:31 PM

Dolphins SS Reshad Jones (questionable, shoulder) is expected to play in Week 3 against the Raiders.

The Dolphins limited Jones in practice the last two days, but it won't keep him out this week. Jones has had a strong start to the season, posting 10 tackles and tying for the league lead in interceptions. It's a downgrade to Jared Cook's matchup.
Sep 21 - 8:22 PM

Speaking Thursday, Dolphins coach Adam Gase was noncommittal on DeVante Parker's (finger) Week 3 status.

The Dolphins are starting to seem over their perpetually-disappointing fourth-year wideout. Parker can't stay on the field and when he does play he rarely makes the big plays he's supposed to be known for. Whenever Parker finally makes his 2018 debut, he will be a low-end WR4.
