Miami Dolphins WR Brian Hartline was targeted just once in Week 10 against the Detroit Lions, and he is on pace for just 76 targets this season, well below his 127 from last season. So far Hartline isn't complaining about the drop in targets. "Coaches can use me as they see fit," Hartline said Tuesday, Nov. 11.
Fantasy Tip: Hartline might not be complaining, but his seasonal fantasy owners aren't happy. And for FantasyScore, he should be avoided until he starts to show more consistency.

Miami Dolphins WR Brian Hartline has become a forgotten man in the team's offense after back-to-back 1,000-yard seasons. He is currently fourth on the team in catches (16) and third in receiving yards (161), and he's on pace for his worst statistical season since 2011. The Dolphins have basically stopped throwing his way; he was targeted just twice in Week 6 and was without a catch for the first time in almost two years. Tannehill has had the most snaps of any receiver on the team in every game this year, but only once was he targeted more often than WR Mike Wallace.
"Sometimes teams commit, whether they play cloud, whether they double-cover, there are multiple different coverages. We are a progression-based passing game. Sometimes it's just the way the ball rolls and the snaps are thrown, it just hasn't been (there). He hasn't been targeted quite as much, but I'm sure he is going to have his days," head coach Joe Philbin said. WR Jarvis Landry has emerged as a legitimate receiving threat, too, and he had a team-high six-catches for 75 yards and a touchdown against the Green Bay Packers last week.
Fantasy Tip: Until Hartline is utilized more often in the offense, he won't be an intriguing pick for your FantasyScore lineups. He comes with a $4,300 (8.6% of cap) salary this weekend against the Chicago Bears.
Fri, 17 Oct 2014 14:21:04 -0700
Miami Dolphins WR Brian Hartline (finger) practiced in full Friday, Oct. 17, and is listed as probable for Week 7 against the Chicago Bears.
Fantasy Tip: Hartline put up a fat zero last week against the Green Bay Packers. He hasn't been very involved in the passing game this year, and he has just one touchdown. Hartline ($4,300) is a cheaper option at FantasyScore, but he should be considered no more than a weak flex option.
Wed, 15 Oct 2014 11:58:26 -0700
Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill said he would like to get the ball to WR Brian Hartline more. "I think we have to get him the ball," Tannehill said.
Sun, 12 Oct 2014 15:05:42 -0700
Miami Dolphins WR Brian Hartline had zero catches in the Week 6 game against the Green Bay Packers, and he was targeted just two times.
Fantasy Tip: It was a disappointing day for Hartline, especially in what appeared to be a very favorable matchup. Fantasy owners need not bother with Hartline going forward.
Mon, 22 Sep 2014 10:56:08 -0700
Miami Dolphins WR Brian Hartline (elbow) hurt his left elbow in the team's Week 3 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs in the second half and was attended to by trainers.
Fantasy Tip: Hartline had just three catches (seven targets) and 25 yards, but his stat line was saved by a touchdown grab. With the quarterback situation in Miami in flux heading into the contest in London against the Oakland Raiders, Hartline doesn't figure to be a safe play in Week 4.
Wed, 17 Sep 2014 15:24:00 -0700
Miami Dolphins WR Brian Hartline (back) practiced in full Wednesday, Sept. 17.
Fantasy Tip: The fact that he practiced fully in the first practice of the week is encouraging. We'd expect him to play against the Kansas City Chiefs. Hartline is a cheap option at FantasyScore ($5,300) and could return nice value against a weak defense.
Sun, 14 Sep 2014 09:09:33 -0700
Miami Dolphins WR Brian Hartline has a matchup edge against CB Buffalo Bills CB Stephon Gilmore (groin), who is hindered by a groin injury Sunday, Sept. 14.
Fantasy Tip: Hartline is a solid WR2 or flex at a good price ($5,300; 10.6% of your cap) on FantasyScore this week.

Fri, 27 Dec 2013 14:14:51 -0800

Wed, 25 Dec 2013 11:46:08 -0800

Mon, 16 Dec 2013 19:31:33 -0800
Miami Dolphins WR Brian Hartline led the receivers in Week 15 against the New England Patriots, on the field for 62 of the team's 64 offensive snaps. WR Mike Wallace was second with 56 snaps, while WR Rishard Matthews managed to see the field for 48 snaps.
Tue, 03 Dec 2013 20:38:32 -0800
The Miami Dolphins could face wintry weather in their Week 14 game against the Pittsburgh Steelers Sunday, Dec. 8. The forecast currently calls for a wintry mix with temperatures in the low 30's with an east wind around 10 mph. "Snow is probably last because it's really not as wet or causes as many problems," WR Brian Hartline said Tuesday, Dec. 3. "Wind can be a pain in the butt because ball location changes really quickly. Rain, it depends because if it's soaking wet, it's maybe not as bad because you can adjust."
Fantasy Tip: If the weather plays a factor, the team could move to a more ground-based attack on offense, which would limit the fantasy appeal of Mike Wallace, Hartline, Charles Clay and Ryan Tannehill, as well as Caleb Sturgis. It could be good news for Lamar Miller, who gobbled up 72 rushing yards in Week 13 in New York, his most yards since Week 9.
Thu, 07 Nov 2013 09:34:00 -0800
Miami Dolphins OL Jonathan Martin laughed about a voicemail at the center of the controversy with OT Richie Incognito, according to WR Brian Hartline. "This is the same guy that was laughing about this voice mail at one point in time, first of all," Hartline said of Martin. "Second of all, I believe that if you look through the whole voice mail, there's some things said that you probably shouldn't say in general, friends or not friends. But I know for a fact, that I've said things to my friends that I kind of wish I've never said to, either."
Wed, 06 Nov 2013 19:18:34 -0800
Updating a previous report, several Miami Dolphins players, including OT Tyson Clabo, WR Brian Hartline, DT John Jerry, DT Paul Soliai, DT Randy Starks and QB Ryan Tannehill came to the defense of embattled OG Richie Incognito Wednesday, Nov. 6. "We're just trying to help clear Richie's name," Starks said. "Whatever was said, I'm sure wasn't meant that way. (Incognito and OT Jonathan Martin) are good friends. Richie's a good teammate. Jon Martin was a good teammate. I just think everything's gotten blown out of proportion."

The Miami Dolphins have used an empty backfield setup with five players lined up as receivers, including WRs Mike Wallace and Brian Hartline, RB Lamar Miller, TE Dustin Keller and either WR Brandon Gibson or TE Charles Clay. The team even practiced with that grouping in goal line situations. "That surprised me and I'm on the team," Wallace said. "If we can do that, we'll keep catching teams off guard and get a lot of mismatches we want."
Thu, 08 Aug 2013 12:05:28 -0700

Tue, 21 May 2013 11:26:00 -0700
Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill was sharp during organized team activities Tuesday, May 21. Tannehill had big passes to WRs Brian Hartline and Mike Wallace. TE Dustin Keller was impressed with Tannehill's first practice. "You would think a guy who used to play wide receiver the best thing he does is run the ball," Keller said. "But he puts the ball right on the money and he's a good decision maker, as well."
Wed, 24 Apr 2013 05:59:34 -0700
Miami Dolphins WR Brian Hartline said he believes the team has a "championship offense" following the additions of WRs Mike Wallace and Brandon Gibson, as well as TE Dustin Keller in the offseason. "I think we got every move we needed to make," Hartline said. "We probably could add some depth at certain positions, but we've got all the pieces to the car, now we've just got to put it altogether."
Sun, 17 Mar 2013 18:00:26 -0700
Updating a previous report, Miami Dolphins WR Davone Bess is not immediately in danger of being cut despite the team's adding of free-agent WRs Brandon Gibson and Mike Wallace, as well as the re-signing of WR Brian Hartline.
Fantasy Tip: Bess could stick around, but his fantasy value takes a huge hit with all of those talented receivers joining the fray. Bess has been arguing the No. 1 or 2 wideout in Miami for the past couple of years, but he is likely to see much less of the field as long as those others remain healthy. Heading into Draft Day, he is likely to go unpicked in a majority of leagues if his situation remains the same.
Sat, 16 Mar 2013 17:26:55 -0700
Miami Dolphins QB Matt Moore, WR Mike Wallace, WR Brian Hartline, DE Cameron Wake, LB Dannell Ellerbe and LB Philip Wheeler will count $50.07 million against the salary cap in 2014.

The Miami Dolphins re-signed WR Brian Hartline to a five-year, $30.775 million deal that includes $12.5 million guaranteed.
Fantasy Tip: Hartline opened eyes last season with a 1,000-yard season. He could expand on that as his rapport with Ryan Tannehill blossoms. Hartline is a solid receiver to round out your fantasy receiving corps.
Tue, 05 Mar 2013 08:59:24 -0800
Updating an earlier report, the Miami Dolphins believed to be using Green Bay Packers WR Jordy Nelson's four-year, $14 million deal as framework for signing WR Brian Hartline.
Tue, 05 Mar 2013 07:43:01 -0800

The Miami Dolphins might still use the franchise tag before the deadline Monday, March 4. However, general manager Jeff Ireland preaches value, and he has worked to clear $45 million in salary-cap space to use this spring. Impending free-agents OT Jake Long would host $15 million with the tag, while CB Sean Smith ($10.9 million), WR Brian Hartline ($9.9 million) and RB Reggie Bush ($7.9 million) also seem unlikely to get the designation.
Fri, 15 Feb 2013 13:01:30 -0800
