Gesicki's total lack of involvement came, to the befuddlement of fantasy managers, on a day where fellow tight ends Adam Shaheen (3-51-1) and Durham Smythe (1-2-1) both got into the end zone. The third-year pro now has four games this season with 30 or less receiving yards compared to just two breakout performances (130 yards and a score Week 2 and 91 yards Week 5). Gesicki is quietly shaping up to be a boom-or-bust fantasy option, though it's also worth noting that the Dolphins never had to play catch-up during Sunday's blowout divisional win.
Perry avoided an injury designation for Week 5 after sitting out Thursday's practice with an illness, but he'll end up being a healthy scratch anyway. The 23-year-old has yet to suit up through five games this season.
It's unclear if Ledbetter is still battling the ankle injury that landed him on injured reserve after the 2019 season opener. In any case, he's now reverted to the reserve list after being waived by the Dolphins on Tuesday.
Hollins joined the Dolphins in Week 14, and he saw most of his usage with the team come on special teams. Across 12 games with the Eagles in 2019, Hollins caught 10 of 22 targets for 125 yards. In four contests with Miami, he failed to bring in his only target. The 26-year-old is under contract for 2020, but he'll need to spend the offseason competing for a roster spot.
Wilkins was limited to just two sacks as a rookie in 2019, so it's encouraging to see him already getting off to a hot start Year 2. The second-year pro also matched his career-high tackle total during the Week 1 loss, so he'll be worth monitoring in IDP formats heading into a Week 2 tilt against the Bills.
Davis appears fully recovered from the arm injury he picked up Week 3 against the Cowboys. He's set to draw the start at left tackle versus Washington.
Van Noy was expected to sit out of Sunday's game after practicing in a limited capacity throughout the week. The good news for the Dolphins is that Shaq Lawson (knee) will be available for the contest at linebacker. Look for Lawson and Sam Eguavoen to handle starting duties at strongside linebacker for Sunday's game.
The Buccaneers were hoping Sinnett would clear waivers so they could place him on the practice squad, as they gave him a $152,000 signing bonus in April. Sinnett will look to learn a few things from Tom Brady at practice this season.
Howard has now recorded one interception in each of his last four contests, tying Kendall Fuller for the league lead. He's also gone back-to-back games without allowing a catch on eight combined targets. As Travis Wingfield of the Dolphins' official site reports, Howard leads the league with 16 interceptions since December 2017, despite having missed 15 games in that span. He'll look to continue solidifying his reputation as the league's top ball hawk versus the Rams in Week 8.
Ford's 18 offensive snaps were a season low, but his involvement may have faded over the course of the game as Miami carried a three-possession lead into halftime. The 2017 seventh-round pick averaged 3.4 catches and 38.4 receiving yards per game Weeks 1 through 5, with his breakout performance coming by way of a seven-catch, 76-yard outing Sept. 20 against Buffalo. Emerging from the Week 7 bye, Ford will be catching passes from rookie Tua Tagovailoa in a matchup against the Rams' fourth-ranked pass defense.
Hilland previously spent the 2018 season on the Dolphins' practice squad. When fully recovered from his undisclosed injury, the 24-year-old center may look for a depth role elsewhere.
Sanders remains perfect through six contests, having made all 15 of his field-goal attempts and each of his 13 extra-point tries. Not only does his 100 percent conversion rate lead the NFL, as Adam H. Beasley of the Miami Herald notes, but his 58 points scored is tied for third in the league. Granted, much of Sanders' damage came Week 4 and Week 5 when he accounted for ten combined field goals, but as long as he keeps up the trend of perfect accuracy, he'll warrant serious fantasy consideration.
Ellis reverted back to the team's injured reserve list after he was unclaimed on waivers. The Maryland product will look to get healthy then earn a spot on a roster elsewhere.
Pankey was waived by the Packers on Monday but will now have a new opportunity in South Beach. The 25-year-old hasn't appeared in a game this season despite spending most of the campaign on Green Bay's 53-man roster.
Breida once again deferred the lion's share of the running back workload to Myles Gaskin, who handled 75 percent of Miami's RB carries in Week 6. Gaskin has garnered an average of 16.5 rush attempts per game since Week 3, but Breida has gotten slightly more involved with 15 combined carries of his own the past two games against San Francisco and New York. He had averaged 4.5 carries per game on the season prior to that. Miami heads into its Week 7 bye before returning with Tua Tagovailoa as its starting quarterback Nov. 1 against the Rams.
Hayes will provide Miami with key cornerback depth against the Jaguars during Thursday Night Football with Byron Jones (groin/Achilles) out. He played a rotational role on defense down the stretch for the Dolphins last season.
Parker is coming off a Week 7 bye, so it's somewhat concerning to see that he isn't handling a full practice load. The 27-year-old has regularly had his reps capped on Wednesdays this year, on the one hand, but he was also forced out of the Dolphins' Week 6 win over the Jets due to a groin injury. In any case, as long as Parker is able to keep practicing on at least a limited basis there won't be real reason for concern about his availability against the Rams on Sunday.
Sieler started one game for the Dolphins in 2019 and will make his second career start Sunday. The 2018 seventh-round pick has recorded eight tackles and a half sack through four games this season, and he'll be tasked with pressuring Jimmy Garoppolo in Sunday's matchup.
Cox was limited to contributing as a blocker on offense as a rookie, and he also played a small role on special teams. He's not a candidate to gain any fantasy value in 2020, as Cox will likely reprise a similar role in his sophomore season.
The Dolphins' passing game mostly went into the tank after taking a 21-0 lead into halftime, but Williams was able to cash in early to salvage his production. The second-year receiver has found the end zone in three of the last four games, and if the groin injury DeVante Parker suffered Sunday doesn't heal up over the team's Week 7 bye, Williams could find himself as Ryan Fitzpatrick's top option for a game or two.
The 26-year-old sustained the hand injury during the Week 6 win over the Jets, but he's good to go coming out of the bye week. Grugier-Hill should continue to work in a rotational role in Miami's linebacking corps.
Biegel is presumed to be done for the season after suffering a torn left Achilles during Tuesday's practice. The 27-year-old is coming off a career-best 2019 campaign, and he looked on track to build upon that performance with Miami in 2020 prior to becoming injured.
Coach Brian Flores said Monday that the 25-year-old was still in the concussion protocol, but he was able to practice with no limitations Wednesday. Van Ginkel sustained the concussion during the Week 6 win over the Jets, but it appears he won't miss any games due to the well-timed bye week.
Ahmed was promoted from the practice squad Thursday but won't be suiting up for his first game with the team. Myles Gaskin, Matt Breida and Patrick Laird will serve as Miami's active running backs in Week 5.
The Dolphins gave Cole a chance as an undrafted free agent from Division II McKendree (Ill.), but he didn't make the final roster. He flashed skill as both a receiver and returner in college, so perhaps the Dolphins can develop him on the practice squad.
The Dolphins cut quarterback Jake Rudock in a corresponding move. Davis was waived with a non-football injury designation during training camp but will now return to the team and provide depth in the defensive backfield.
The veteran back, who signed a two-year, $9.75 million deal with Miami back in March, is thus a healthy scratch for the second consecutive week. As a result, Myles Gaskin and Matt Breida will head the Dolphins' Week 6 rushing attack, with Lynn Bowden and Patrick Laird in reserve.
Brooks landed on injured reserve Sept. 6 with an undisclosed injury. In addition to the Dolphins, he's also appeared on the Cardinals and Patriots rosters.
Flowers either tested positive or was in close contact with someone who did. Either way, he's eligible to return to team facilities and start preparing for the 2020 season. The 26-year-old will aim to lock down the starting left guard position in training camp.
The Dolphins are coming off a Week 7 bye, so Shaheen's appearance on the injury report comes as a surprise, considering he wasn't known to have been banged up in the aftermath of a Week 6 win over the Jets. The fact that Shaheen was on the field in some capacity should be taken as a positive sign, however, making it likely that he'll be cleared to play Sunday against the Rams. The 26-year-old has scored in back-to-back games, and he appears to have clearly usurped Durham Smythe on the depth chart at tight end, which was reflected in the Dolphins' decision to hand Shaheen a two-year contract extension earlier Wednesday.
Davis was forced off the field with less than 10 minutes remaining in the fourth quarter. He had two tackles (one solo) before heading to the sideline. As long as the rookie second-round pick remains out, Christian Wilkins stands to handle an increased workload.
Fejedelem has missed three straight games due to a pectoral injury, but he now appears to be trending in the right direction for Sunday's game against Seattle. He'll handle a depth role at safety when ready to go.
With Miami carrying a 30-7 lead into the second half, the 25-year-old back saw a higher-than-usual level of involvement Week 5. In fact, Laird's 10 offensive snaps were more than the eight he had between Weeks 1 and 4 combined. Laird hasn't fielded an offensive touch since recording two receptions in the season opener against New England, but with a matchup against the Jets on the Week 6 docket, he may in line for some more playing time.
Myarick failed to make the roster at tight end. The Dolphins' depth chart at the position consists of Mike Gesicki, Durham Smythe and Adam Shaheen.
The fifth overall pick of the 2020 draft, Tagovailoa made his long-awaited pro debut at the end of Sunday's 24-0 victory over the Jets, completing both of his passes for nine yards. While his stint of 2:27 on the field wasn't extensive, it was enough for coach Brian Flores to make the move from graybeard Ryan Fitzpatrick to Tagovailoa, whose college career came to a close last Nov. 16 when he suffered a dislocated and fractured right hip. Miami currently is in the midst of its bye week, so Tagovailoa's debut will have to wait until Nov. 1 against the Rams.
Grant led the Dolphins in terms of catches, and his 48 receiving yards were second only to tight end Adam Shaheen's 51. The speedster was also busy on special teams, returning one kickoff (23 yards) and six punts (83), to account for a team-high 154 all-purpose yards. Grant also hauled in one of Tua Tagovailoa's first two NFL completions, when he gained a first down late in the fourth quarter to seal the win for Miami.
The undrafted rookie out of Arkansas State enjoyed impressive collegiate production with 153 receptions for 1,811 yards and 19 touchdowns over his final two seasons, but he couldn't secure a roster spot in Miami. If he clears waivers, the Dolphins intend to keep him on the practice squad.
The rookie first-round pick will have to spend a minimum of three games on IR before retaking the field. Julien Davenport stands to slot in as Miami's starting left tackle as long as Jackson remains sidelined.
The 2017 third-round pick had a rough tenure in Miami, especially considering he spent all of the 2019 season rehabbing from a torn ACL. Tankersley has 36 tackles (26 solo) and seven pass breakups through 17 career games in the NFL.
Jones finished second on the team in terms of tackles, behind only Jerome Baker (16). The rookie third-round pick put forth a strong showing in his NFL debut, but fantasy managers will likely need to see more evidence before trusting him as a consistent option in IDP formats. Jones will look to keep up his momentum Week 2 against Buffalo.
Strowbridge didn't pop up on the team's injury report, so this is likely a coach's decision to keep him home. The 24-year-old has yet to suit up in game action after he was selected in the fifth round in April's draft, and he'll have to wait another week to make his NFL debut.
It was reported earlier Sunday that Lawson would be expected to play after managing a trio of limited practice sessions throughout the week, so this news is a positive sign for the team. With Kyle Van Noy (groin) missing Sunday's game, expect Lawson to draw a start, with Sam Eguavoen and Andrew Van Ginkel managing snaps at the other strongside linebacker position.
The rookie seventh-round pick could be a candidate to resurface on Minnesota's practice squad if no other team pursues him. Cole played a hybrid linebacker/nickel role during his time at Mississippi State.
Fitzpatrick has fared reasonably well this season, throwing for 300 yards in three games, tossing multiple touchdowns four times and throwing multiple picks on three occasions. Overall, his line is fair enough -- 70.5 percent passing, 1,535 yards and 10 touchdowns versus seven interceptions through six contests -- but after Tagovailoa got on the field in garbage time this past Sunday against the Jets, Miami will move forward with the fifth overall pick of the 2020 draft under center. The Tagovailoa era will begin Nov. 1 versus the Rams following the Dolphins' bye week.
Callaway was handed a 10-game suspension for violating the NFL's substance abuse policy last November, and he's subsequently had four games added, so his first chance to retake the field will come during Miami's matchup against the Rams in Week 8. The Dolphins are lacking for quality receiving depth, so Callaway, currently a member of the practice squad, could see opportunities to make an impact this season as long as he's able to avoid any further off-field issues.
Roberts only played 51 percent of defensive snaps, even with Shaq Lawson (hip) being forced out Sunday, but he managed to rack up serviceable IDP numbers even with limited playing time. He also had seven total tackles Week 3, and the Dolphins are set to face a run-heavy opponent at San Francisco in Week 5.
Needman was promoted from Miami's practice squad in mid-October, when injuries to the secondary thrust him into the starting lineup. The UTEP product never gave back the reigns, and he ultimately concluded the 2019 campaign as a regular starter at cornerback. He's under contract for 2020, but it's worth noting that the Dolphins are a realistic contender to add to the secondary in the offseason.
It's unclear when McCain picked up the knock, but he'll need to be cleared by the NFL's independent doctors before being allowed to return. As long as McCain is sidelined, look for Brandon Jones to take over as the team's starting free safety.
Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reported that the team waived Queiroz Neto on Saturday. The 27-year-old doesn't count against the practice squad's 10-player limit. Queiroz Neto was originally allocated to Miami through the International Player Pathway Program and made the switch from defensive tackle to offensive guard early in training camp.
Kindley was limited during Wednesday's practice with the foot issue, however, he appears ready for Week 5's game against the 49ers. The rookie out of Georgia is expected to assume his usual starting role as the team's right guard now that he's healthy.
Holley played last season for the Calgary Stampeders of the Canadian Football League, and he recorded 78 tackles over 18 games. The Kent State product played in a hybrid role between linebacker and safety, but he'll likely stick to a special-teams role if he makes the team in Miami.
Davenport left the game briefly in the first quarter to get his knee checked out by the training staff, and was pronounced healthy to return. He'll slot back into his usual role at left tackle across the offensive line.
Igbinoghene handled 93 percent of defensive snaps against the Bills in Week 2 after Jones was forced from the contest, so this news only officially confirms what was already expected. The rookie third-round pick will start across from Xavien Howard and work to contain a Jaguars' receiving corps that will be without DJ Chark (chest).
Godchaux underwent surgery Friday morning, per Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald, and he still hopes to return down the stretch this season. The starting nose tackle is expected to carry a three-month recovery timeframe, which could leave the door open for a postseason return should Miami qualify for the playoffs.
Ogbah was a menace on the field Sunday, including a sack that resulted in a 28-yard loss. He now has five sacks on the year including four in the past three games. He is only playing in around 65 percent of the defensive snaps this season but could see an uptick if his high level of play continues.
After three relatively quiet games, Baker has finally strung together a performance somewhat resembling his game-wrecking Week 1 showing. The third-year linebacker hasn't yet proven the sort of consistency that would make him a high-end IDP asset, but Baker's upside nonetheless puts him in the conversation as an every-week fantasy option.
The retooling of the Dolphins' offensive line continues, with Karras -- a 2016 sixth-rounder -- now slated to start at center alongside guard Ereck Flowers, whom the team agreed to a deal with Tuesday. Karras, 27, made 20 starts over 60 appearances with the Patriots the past four seasons.
Both the 91 rushing yards and 126 scrimmage yards were career highs for the second-year back, as Miami spent much of the second half burning clock after taking a 21-0 lead into halftime. Gaskin has a firm hold on the No. 1 job in the Dolphins' backfield, and his role is unlikely to change following the team's Week 7 bye.
Perry, who legally changed his last name from Wiltz in March, consistently lined up as a starter in the slot last season before suffering a shoulder injury Week 16. Entering training camp, he'll face stout competition at the position from rookie Noah Igbinoghene, in addition to holdover Nik Needham.
The third-round rookie fielded five offensive snaps against Gang Green, which is near his typical level of involvement. But Week 6 marked the first time in four appearances this season that Bowden went without a touch. He's been a peripheral contributor in his debut NFL season out of Kentucky, with four total rush attempts and just one reception, and he's expected to resume that role once Miami returns from its Week 7 bye to take on the Rams.
Frazier was held out of Sunday's loss to the Seahawks after stringing together a trio of limited practices, but it looks like he's now put his shoulder injury behind him. He looks on track to return as a special-teams contributor versus San Francisco in Week 5.
Jones appears on track for Sunday's contest in San Francisco after having missed back-to-back games. Barring any setbacks during Friday's practice, Jones stands to resume handling his usual starting workload across from Xavien Howard.
Eguavoen is already back on the roster after having been placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list Wednesday. In the wake of Vince Biegel (Achilles) having been placed on injured reserve, Eguavoen could be a candidate to receive increased practice reps.
Munson's initial activity at training camp was delayed over a week due to his stay on the NFI list, but he's now earned clearance to take the practice field. He's competing for a depth role in Miami's linebacker corps.
Scott reverted to injured reserve after clearing waivers at roster cutdowns. The severity of the ankle issue remains unclear, but the 26-year-old is now free to sign elsewhere.
Smythe and fellow backup tight end Adam Shaheen (3-51-1) both got involved enough on offense to score Sunday, while Mike Gesicki was held without a catch on two targets. It's encouraging to see Smythe log a productive day after having missed Week 5 due to a knee injury, but he usually takes too large a percentage of his snaps as a blocker to warrant real fantasy consideration.
