Dolphins | Dustin Keller out for season

Sun, 18 Aug 2013 08:22:11 -0700

Miami Dolphins TE Dustin Keller (knee) will miss the entire 2013 season after suffering a serious knee injury during the team's preseason game Saturday, Aug. 17.

Fantasy Tip: Keller was signed this season to be more of a receiving tight end for the team but will now have to sit out the season. Dion Sims and Michael Egnew probably are the candidates to start at tight end, but neither has much fantasy value. The team could look to add another tight end before the season starts.

Dolphins | Dustin Keller carted off

Sat, 17 Aug 2013 18:26:46 -0700

Miami Dolphins TE Dustin Keller (knee) suffered what appeared to be an ugly right knee or leg injury in the preseason game Saturday, Aug. 17, against the Houston Texans.

Fantasy Tip: It's pure speculation, but it doesn't appear Keller is coming back anytime soon. Charles Clay, Michael Egnew and Dion Sims are likely to attempt to pick up the slack if Keller is sidelined for any length of time. Keller was a Top 20 fantasy option at a very thin, thin position for owners on draft day.

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."

Dolphins | Expect big things from Ryan Tannehill

Sun, 02 Jun 2013 19:13:56 -0700

Miami Dolphins general manager Jeff Ireland predicted QB Ryan Tannehill "is going to make a big jump this year." Tannehill will be entering his second NFL season, and the team added plenty of weapons to help that jump, including WR Mike Wallace and TE Dustin Keller. "He has a lot of room to grow. He's brilliantly smart. The upside is tremendous," Ireland said.

Fantasy Tip: With so many new weapons, Tannehill might be on his way up fantasy cheat sheets heading into his sophomore season in the NFL. Still, he should be counted on as a No. 2 fantasy option who could surprise and occasionally start for his owners when their primary option has a difficult matchup or by
