Albert Wilson A Low-End WR3 In Week 3

Miami Dolphins wide receiver Albert Wilson is facing a decent matchup in Week 3 against the Raiders.

Danny Amendola A WR4 In Week 3

Miami Dolphins wide receiver Danny Amendola is a low-end flex option in Week 3. Amendola hauled in four catches for only 32 yards in Week 2, and like always is best used in PPR leagues.

Kenny Stills A WR2 In Week 3

Miami Dolphins wide receiver Kenny Stills will be the Dolphins No. 1 receiver in Week 3 against the Raiders. Stills was disappointing in Week 2 with only two catches for 17 yards, but that is the nature of a deep threat receiver like Stills. He is known to be boom-or-bust in any given week. The Raiders...

Frank Gore A Low-End Flex Option In Week 3

Miami Dolphins running back Frank Gore will split carries with Kenyan Drake in Week 3. He got nine carries last week, but only produced 25 yards on the ground.

Kenny Stills Only Catches Two Passes In Week 2

Miami Dolphins wide receiver Kenny Stills caught two passes for 17 yards in the Dolphins' 20-12 win over the Jets in Week 2.

DeVante Parker Practices Wednesday

Miami Dolphins wide receiver Devante Parker (finger) practiced with the team Wednesday. He caught passes and ran routes for the first time since Parker originally suffered the broken finger.
