Ryan Fitzpatrick Pulls Little Out of His Hat

Coming off of his best game of the year and facing a subpar New York Jets Defense, many fantasy owners likely put their playoff hopes in the hands of Miami Dolphins quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick, hoping the journeyman had a little more magic left. Unfortunately for those wayward fantasy players, Fitzpatrick's tricks on the field fizzled... Read More

In the middle of a breakout season and coming off of the best game of his career, Miami Dolphins wide receiver Devante Parker was forced out of the Dolphins 22-21 loss to the New York Jets on Sunday after suffering a concussion.

Fleaflicker's Most Added and Dropped: Week 14

Week 13 just served to remind us all that anything can happen in the National Football League and that you can't ever look past the New York Jets when you're trying to lose. The Cincinnati Bengals learned that lesson on Sunday, beating the Jets handily in a game that wasn't even as close as the... Read More

Fleaflicker's Most Added and Dropped: Week 13

And that, ladies and gentlemen, is what a champion loser looks like! The Cincinnati Bengals had every reason to accidentally win in Week 12, as the Steelers were without James Conner and JuJu Smith-Schuster, and were being led by Mason Rudolph, who proved so ineffective that he was eventually replaced by someone named Devlin Hodges....

Devante Parker Remains Consistent Option

Even on one of the league's worst offenses, Miami Dolphins wide receiver Devante Parker continues to keep a high floor, most recently converting six of his 11 targets for 91 yards in the 41-24 loss to the Cleveland Browns. Parker has been Miami's unquestioned No. 1 receiver since Preston Williams was lost for the season... Read More

Is Mike Trout Still the #1 Pick in 2020?

Is it time to talk ADP already? Affectionately known as Mike Trout Doubting-Season, this is the time of year when some touts stick out sorely in declaring that the best player of this - and possibly any - generation should not be chosen first overall in fantasy. Instead, they have declared that it should be... Read More

Mike Gesicki Scores For First Time This Year

At a position where just a heartbeat can sometimes qualify you as viable, Miami Dolphins tight end Mike Gesicki has occasionally popped up as a streaming candidate in 2019, only to mostly disappoint his owners. In Sunday's 41-24 loss to the Cleveland Browns, Gesicki got off the snide, scoring his first touchdown of the year... Read More

Kalen Ballage Plods Through Another Loss

Looking back, it's hard to believe that Miami Dolphins running back Kalen Ballage was being drafted ahead of former Dolphin starter Kenyan Drake coming into this season. Completely ineffective all year, things haven't improved since getting the backfield all to himself following the trade of Drake and the suspension of Mark Walton, who had supplanted... Read More

Ryan Fitzpatrick Salvages Fantasy Day

Down 28-3 at halftime and with the game virtually out of reach, Miami Dolphins quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick surprisingly ended his day with 21 fantasy points in the eventual 41-24 loss to the Cleveland Browns, making him the sixth-highest scoring quarterback in Week 12. Fitzpatrick was the king of garbage-time on Sunday, throwing for two touchdowns... Read More

Devante Parker Has Another Solid Performance

Playing on one of the league's worst teams, Miami Dolphins wide receiver Devante Parker continues to be a steady source of production, scoring nine fantasy points in a 41-24 loss to the Cleveland Browns on Sunday. Parker had six catches for 91 yards and was quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick's favorite receiver, with his 11 targets once... Read More

Fleaflicker's Most Added and Dropped: Week 12

With only six games remaining in the 2019 regular season and with every team now through their bye-week, we can finally look over a level playing field and truly judge the good from the bad, and the winners from the losers. Well, maybe just the losers. Now with two-thirds of the season passed, it's the... Read More

Devante Parker Looks to Stay Steady

Miami Dolphins wide receiver Devante Parker continued his breakout season in last week's loss to the Buffalo Bills, even while being covered by standout cornerback Tre'Davious White and a fierce Buffalo secondary. Parker finished the day with 15 points in standard leagues, catching seven of his 10 targets for 135 yards, including a 50-yard catch-and-run.... Read More

Devante Parker Breaks Free in Loss

Forever labeled as boom-or-bust, Miami Dolphins wide receiver Devante Parker has now turned into a model of consistency, scoring double-digit points for the fourth time in seven games in Miami’s 37-20 loss to Buffalo on Sunday. The speedy receiver had the best highlight of the day, hauling in a 50-yard catch-and-run to set up Miami... Read More

Kalen Ballage Vultures His Only Value

With a three-down role all to himself again, Miami Dolphins running back Kalen Ballage continued to be irrelevant in both fantasy and real-life on Sunday, putting up just six fantasy points in Miami’s 37-20 loss to Buffalo. The fact that he got even six points was miraculous, as they only came due to a three-yard... Read More

Mike Gesicki Can't Get Going in Loss to Buffalo

Seeing a bump in ownership after breaking out for 95 yards in Week 9, Miami Dolphins tight end Mike Gesicki disappointed for the second-straight week, scoring just one fantasy point in Miami’s 37-20 loss to Buffalo on Sunday. Gesicki’s six targets tied him with four other teammates for second-most on the team behind clear number-one... Read More

Fleaflicker's Most Added and Dropped: Week 11

When you can't even get tanking right, you know your football team is bad.

With the... Read More

Devante Parker Faces Tough Matchup in Week 11

Miami Dolphins wide receiver Devante Parker is the most talented man left standing in the Dolphins receiving corps but will face an uphill battle with the Buffalo Bills coming to town in Week 11. Led by shutdown corner Tre’Davious White, the Bills secondary has allowed the second-fewest fantasy points to wide receivers this season, trailing... Read More

Kalen Ballage Looks to Improve in Week 11

With all of his competition for touches being either traded or suspended, Miami Dolphins running back Kalen Ballage did little to impress in last week's 16-12 victory over the Indianapolis Colts. Rushing for only 43 yards on 20 carries, and having rushed for only 113 yards on the season, Ballage has been a complete disappointment... Read More

Kalen Ballage Does Little With Opportunity

Now with the backfield almost completely to himself, Miami Dolphins running back Kalen Ballage did little in Miami's 16-12 victory over the Indianapolis Colts, rushing 20 times for just 48 yards.

Devante Parker Fails to Cash In

Miami Dolphins wide receiver Devante Parker was quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick's favorite target in a 16-12 victory over the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday, with his 10 targets leading the team. Parker could only haul in five of those passes, however, finishing with just 69 yards receiving in the win, and failing to score a touchdown for... Read More

Ryan Fitzpatrick Has Mediocre Performance

After winning his second-straight game, head coach Brian Flores declared that Miami Dolphins quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick would remain the starter for "the foreseeable future".

Mike Gesicki Does Nothing in Miami Victory

A popular streaming option headed into a Week 10 matchup with the Indianapolis Colts, Miami Dolphins tight end Mike Gesicki scored zero fantasy points in Miami's 16-12 victory on the road.

Albert Wilson Gets Second Chance to Salvage Season

Plagued by injuries and inconsistent play all year, Miami Dolphins wide receiver Albert Wilson has been a fantasy non-entity through nine weeks, totaling only 58 yards receiving in five games. However, with the recent news that Miami's leading receiver Preston Williams will miss the rest of the season with a knee injury, Wilson should see... Read More

Mike Gesicki Could Provide Help at Thin Position

Miami Dolphins tight end Mike Gesicki has officially landed on the fantasy radar in a bleak 2019 season at the tight end position, with the second-year player quickly becoming a favorite target of quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick.

Fleaflicker's Most Added and Dropped: Week 10

What's worse for a fan base than seeing your rebuilding team field a barely professional football team as they march towards the No. 1 pick in the 2020 NFL draft by letting Ryan Fitzpatrick throw the ball 35 times a game?
