Fleaflicker's Most Added and Dropped: Week 7

Every year and in every sport, a few teams march effortlessly towards the ultimate prize as if it's been preordained. When seemingly invincible teams like these are beaten, it's not always by the quality of their opponent but instead by their own psychological mindset. They look past a lesser opponent and fall victim to the... Read More

Albert Wilson Remains Limited in Practice

Miami Dolphins wide receiver Albert Wilson (hip, calf) has been a limited participant in practice this week after returning to action in a 17-16 Week 6 loss to the Washington Redskins. After missing virtually the entire season due to injury, Wilson caught five of six targets against the Redskins but only totaled 15 yards. While... Read More

Ryan Fitzpatrick Looks to Recapture Magic in Buffalo

After being benched following a Week 2 loss to the New England Patriots, Miami Dolphins quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick has been named the starter for a Week 7 matchup in Buffalo. Fitzpatrick replaced starter Josh Rosen in the fourth quarter of Miami's loss to the Washington Redskins in Week 6, leading the Dolphins on two touchdown... Read More

Josh Rosen's Season Goes From Bad to Worse

Benched to start the fourth quarter after throwing two interceptions and completing 15 of 25 passes for just 85 yards in a 17-16 Week 6 loss to the Washington Redskins, Miami Dolphins quarterback Josh Rosen will ride the pine again in Week 7. Claiming on Monday that he believed Rosen would still remain the starting... Read More

Mark Walton Remains Limited in Practice

Following his first career start in a 17-16 loss to the Washington Redskins in Week 6, Miami Dolphins running back Mark Walton (thumb) has been limited in practice this week, but he should be good to go for Week 7. Even with the start, Walton is still clearly behind Kenyan Drake on the depth chart... Read More

Kenyan Drake Belongs on Your Bench Again

The subject of trade rumors that have recently heated up, Miami Dolphins running back Kenyan Drake continues to be a fantasy non-entity heading into a Week 7 matchup with the Buffalo Bills. Drake has only 290 total yards on the season, with 19 receptions and zero touchdowns, giving him just 25 points on the year... Read More

Preston Williams Not a Wise Option in Week 7

Miami Dolphins wide receiver Preston Williams was briefly trending up in the fantasy community after receiving 12 targets in a Week 3 loss to the Dallas Cowboys, but his arrow has since pointed right back down. Blanketed by cornerback Josh Norman for much of last week's 17-16 loss to the Washington Redskins, Williams finished with... Read More

Devante Parker Remains a Poor Option in Week 7

He may have scored touchdowns in his past two games but Miami Dolphins wide receiver Devante Parker still isn't trending up and still doesn't belong on your fantasy roster. Even in a favorable matchup last week against the previously winless Washington Redskins, and with teammate Preston Wilson drawing most of cornerback Josh Norman's attention, Parker... Read More

Albert Wilson Returns to Action With Five Catches

Having not played since suffering a calf injury in a Week 1 loss to the Ravens, Miami Dolphins wide receiver Albert Wilson returned to action in a 17-16 loss to the Washington Redskins on Sunday, finishing with five receptions on six targets. Wilson's six targets tied him with Preston Williams for the most among Miami... Read More

Preston Williams Does Little in Loss

Miami Dolphins wide receiver Preston Williams was a popular sleeper heading into a favorable Week 6 matchup, as the Washington Redskins were bringing in one of the league's worst defenses. However, those bold owners who took a chance on Williams were rewarded with a dud, as he caught just two passes for 31 yards and... Read More

Late Touchdown by Devante Parker Isn't Enough

Miami Dolphins wide receiver Devante Parker made the last of his three receptions count on Sunday, with an 11-yard touchdown catch with just six seconds remaining in Miami's 17-16 loss to the Washington Redskins. Parker has now caught a touchdown in his last two games but was only targeted a total of eight times in... Read More

Kenyan Drake Continues to Disappoint

Coming off a bye week, Miami Dolphins running back Kenyan Drake seemed finally set up for success in Week 6, with the Dolphins facing a Washington Redskins Defense that was allowing over 400 yards of offense per game. However, Drake only set his owners up for another dud, rushing 10 times for forty yards in... Read More

Josh Rosen Benched in Loss

Coming off of a bye and facing one of the league's most generous defenses, the stars seemed to be aligned for Miami Dolphins quarterback Josh Rosen to show his true talent in Week 6. Rosen was instead benched to start the fourth quarter after throwing for just 85 yards on 15-of-25 passing, leading Miami to... Read More

Ryan Fitzpatrick's Magic Can't Make Win Appear

Called upon in the fourth quarter to take over an offense that had thus far been stagnant, Miami Dolphins quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick almost pulled out Miami's first win of the season in Week 6 before ultimately losing to the Washington Redskins 17-16. Fitzpatrick entered the game and led the Dolphins on two touchdown drives, including... Read More

Preston Williams Could Surge in Value

Miami Dolphins wide receiver Preston Williams is on a team that seems to be actively trying to lose, but he could still be in for a big week with the winless Washington Redskins coming into town. While Williams has only scored one touchdown in 2019 and has yet to reach 70 yards in any game,... Read More

Devante Parker Has Important Audition in Week 6

The subject of trade rumors all season, Miami Dolphins wide receiver Devante Parker will have his best chance to succeed before the October 29 trade deadline, as he's facing a great matchup against the Washington Redskins in Week 6. Usually a touchdown-dependent boom-or-bust option, Parker scored for the first time in Miami's last game and... Read More

Kenyan Drake Enters the Conversation

Like the rest of his winless team, Miami Dolphins running back Kenyan Drake has been a fantasy dud in 2019 thus far, totaling just 220 yards and zero touchdowns in four games. The good news is that after getting only six touches in Week 1, Drake's usage has been steadily increasing, with him receiving 11,... Read More

Josh Rosen Could Finally Find Success

Recently confirmed by head coach Brian Flores as the starter for the remainder of the season, Miami Dolphins quarterback Josh Rosen has his best chance to shine in Week 6 with the winless Washington Redskins coming to town. While the Dolphins are certainly horrible, Rosen's performances haven't been helped by an early schedule filled with... Read More

Fleaflicker's Most Added and Dropped: Week 6

This is Christian McCaffrey's fantasy world and we're all just living in it. At this point, it's just that simple, as it doesn't seem to matter who he's playing with or against. Run CMC is running and catching whatever and whenever he wants. If you played against him in Week 5 (*cough-cough*), you probably got... Read More

Wayne Gallman Won't Return After Concussion

Starting again in place of an injured Saquon Barkley, New York Giants running back Wayne Gallman won't return to Sunday's contest against the Minnesota Vikings after sustaining a concussion in the first half. Gallman had just 14 yards on two rushes before departing and will be replaced by rookie Jon Hilliman and fullback Eli Penny... Read More

Fleaflicker's Most Added and Dropped: Week 5

Before we get into the waiver wire analysis, I want to state that the Patriots have put together a football dynasty like none we've ever seen. However, I think we should all agree that a 16-game season is a whole lot less taxing when six of them every year are against the Dolphins, Bills, and... Read More

Jakeem Grant Continues Trending Down

After being removed in the fourth quarter of a Week 4 loss to the Chargers with a strained hamstring, Miami Dolphins wide receiver Jakeem Grant was held out of practice on Wednesday. While Grant is not expected to miss significant time with Miami in their bye week, he still only finished with one catch for... Read More

Drops Continue to Plague Kalen Ballage

The usage of Miami Dolphins running back Kalen Ballage continued to drop in a 31-10 Week 4 loss to the Chargers, with Ballage only rushing the ball twice and finishing with seven yards. Ballage dropped his only target of the game on a likely 12-yard touchdown pass and was seemingly supplanted by Mark Walton as... Read More

Kenyan Drake Remains Mostly Irrelevant

Miami Dolphins running back Kenyan Drake did little in a 31-10 loss to the Los Angeles Chargers on Sunday, rushing nine times for 44 yards and no scores. He also caught 3-of-5 targets for 29 yards as the Miami offense actually moved the ball well in the first half, with Drake busting a 19-yard screen... Read More

Josh Rosen Uninspiring in Dolphins Loss

Starting for the second game in a row, Miami Dolphins quarterback Josh Rosen completed 17 of 24 passes for 180 yards in a 31-10 loss to the Los Angeles Chargers on Sunday. Rosen had a solid first half, including a 34-yard touchdown pass to Devante Parker, but the entire offense collapsed in the second half... Read More

Preston Williams Continues to Drop Opportunities

Miami Dolphins wide receiver Preston Williams caught four of seven targets for 46 yards in a 31-10 loss to the Los Angeles Chargers on Sunday. While he again led the team in targets, Williams also had a key drop that would've given the Dolphins a first down deep in Chargers territory with the score tied... Read More

Devante Parker Hauls in Long Touchdown

Miami Dolphins wide receiver Devante Parker scored the lone touchdown for the Fins on Sunday, with Miami moving to an imperfect 0-4 following a 30-10 loss to the visiting Los Angeles Chargers. Parker put Miami on the board on their first drive of the game, giving Miami a 7-3 lead after hauling in a 34-yard... Read More

Preston Williams Could Quietly Become Relevant

Considering he's seen his targets go up in every game - including a team-high 12 in last week's 31-6 loss to the Cowboys - Miami Dolphins wide receiver Preston Williams may soon belong on your fantasy radar. The bad news is that Williams only reeled in four of those 12 targets for 68 yards and... Read More

Kenyan Drake Still A Poor Option in Miami Muck

With only 147 total yards and no touchdowns on the season, Miami Dolphins running back Kenyan Drake has been a fantasy dud so far in 2019. There are a few things that his owners can take heart in though, such as his snap rate and touches increasing in each game. Unfortunately, those snaps and touches... Read More

Dolphins Defense a Desperate Play in Week 4

Simply put, there are zero good reasons to consider rostering the Miami Dolphins Defense in a Week 4 matchup against the San Diego Chargers. The obviously tanking Dolphins have allowed 133 points through their first three games and will face a Chargers team that may see the return of running back Melvin Gordon to an... Read More
