With the Miami Dolphins facing some top quarterbacks this month, defensive coordinator Kevin Coyle has created a "speed" package designed to get DEs Cameron Wake, Olivier Vernon and Dion Jordon on the field together to create a formidable pass rush and give the team plenty of flexibility. The team used it in Week 1 against the Cleveland Browns and will continue to use it. The 'Phins had six sacks against Cleveland, three interceptions and let the Browns convert only one of their 14 third downs.
Fantasy Tip: Because of their versatility and depth, the Dolphins defense could be a very strong unit all season long. The stretch of their upcoming games will be a good gauge.
