Dolphins | Dolphins struggling to execute offense

Mon, 15 Sep 2014 10:25:31 -0700

Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill struggled to deliver accurate passes in Week 2 against the Buffalo Bills, and TE Charles Clay had several dropped passes. Tannehill was 5-for-16 (31 percent) on third downs, and the team was sluggish in the running game. Offensive coordinator Bill Lazor likes to spread the field and create one-on-one matchups, but the Dolphins might not have the talent to run his schemes the way they were meant to be designed.

Fantasy Tip: It was only the team's second game under Lazor as the new offensive coordinator, so this is something that is a work in progress. Tannehill's big arm will produce big games, but he's more of a matchup play for the time being.

Dolphins | Delighted with Charles Clay

Mon, 16 Sep 2013 17:19:50 -0700

The coaching staff of the Miami Dolphins is impressed with the progress of TE Charles Clay, who has 163 receiving yards through the first two games. "He's playing faster. His play speed is better," head coach Joe Philbin said Monday, Aug. 16. "He's a smart player."

Fantasy Tip: Clay is starting to draw the eye of fantasy owners, too, as he is 21st in the league in receiving yards - and fourth among players who do not play wide receiver. Still, he is a fringe fantasy player in leagues of 12 or fewer players until he can show this type of production on a longer-term basis.

Miami Dolphins TE Charles Clay will get the opportunity to be the team's starting tight end in 2013. "You'd have to give the nod to Clay as the starter," Sherman said.

He'll do a lot of different things for us, and he's more than capable."
