Chargers | Griff Whalen learning on the fly

Wed, 21 Sep 2016 21:34:24 -0700

San Diego Chargers WR Griff Whalen, signed this week, is utilizing flash cards to learn the offense and get ready for the Week 3 game against the Indianapolis Colts.

Fantasy Tip: Whalen is the No. 4 receiver in the San Diego offense, so he might not see much in the way of fantasy appeal in the coming weeks. But if injuries continue to rear their ugly head in San Diego, he could see a larger role in the near future.

Dolphins | Griff Whalen on roster bubble

Thu, 25 Aug 2016 17:44:06 -0700

Miami Dolphins WR Griff Whalen has not done anything to cement the need for the team to carry a sixth wide receiver, especially if they have to go into the regular season with three quarterbacks and three centers.

Fantasy Tip: The Dolphins are pretty set with their depth at receiver, so even if Whalen does make the team, he wouldn't be in a position to contribute right away from a fantasy perspective. That's a shame, as Whalen displayed notable potential as a rookie a couple of seasons ago, including in the playoffs when he hauled in five catches in the AFC Divisional Round opposite New England. The former Indianapolis Colt has since established himself as an above-average special-teamer.

Dolphins | Two receivers may not make team

Thu, 16 Jun 2016 13:26:19 -0700

Miami Dolphins rookie WR Jakeem Grant's impressive offseason may put WRs Griff Whalen and Matt Hazel in jeopardy for a roster spot, according to The Miami Herald's Barry Jackson. Grant would serve as Miami's No. 5 wide receiver, and the Dolphins may not necessarily feel obliged to keep more than five receivers.

Dolphins | Griff Whalen to be No. 4 WR?

Mon, 11 Apr 2016 20:12:52 -0700

The Miami Dolphins are looking at WR Griff Whalen as an under-the-radar guy with a legitimate chance at winning the No. 4 receiver job. The staff really likes him, although other competition is likely to be added.

Fantasy Tip: Whalen is important on special teams, too, and it's hard to imagine he will not have some kind of meaningful role in Miami. However, as a fantasy receiver he is only worth a look in the very deepest of seasonal formats.

Colts | Two WRs have better chances to make team

Thu, 03 Jul 2014 16:12:53 -0700

Indianapolis Colts WRs Da'Rick Rogers and Griff Whalen have a better chance to make the final roster if the team decides to keep six receivers on the final roster, because WR LaVon Brazill has been suspended for the 2014 season.

Colts | LaVon Brazill suspended

Thu, 03 Jul 2014 13:32:14 -0700

Indianapolis Colts WR LaVon Brazill has been suspended for at least one year without pay by the NFL for violating the policy and program for substances of abuse.

Fantasy Tip: With Brazill out for the season, Da'Rick Rogers and Donte Moncrief could receive bigger roles on offense in 2014. Griff Whalen may also have a chance to make the final roster. None of the players should be drafted in leagues but could be waiver wire options depending on how they are used on offense.

Colts | Da'Rick Rogers could have prominent role

Tue, 12 Nov 2013 12:50:47 -0800

Indianapolis Colts head coach Chuck Pagano said WR Da'Rick Rogers could work himself into a prominent role in the offense for the rest of the season. "You've got a talented football player," Pagano said, citing Rogers' size, speed and big-play ability. "Now we are going to give him an opportunity because he's earned it." Rogers has apparently learned the system quickly. Rogers could push WRs Griff Whalen and LaVon Brazill for the No. 3 wideout job.

Colts | Darrius Heyward-Bey has head injury

Mon, 04 Nov 2013 09:35:24 -0800

Indianapolis Colts WR Darrius Heyward-Bey (head) was being evaluated for a concussion after the team's Week 9 game, but head coach Chuck Pagano said Heyward-Bey was cleared.

Fantasy Tip: This is something to keep an eye on during the week. If he can't play in Week 10, Griff Whalen and Coby Fleener will become more important options in the passing game.

Colts | No. 3 WR job up for grabs

Mon, 28 Oct 2013 19:37:45 -0700

Indianapolis Colts head coach Chuck Pagano is uncertain who will step up as the team's No. 3 wide receiver behind WRs Darrius Heyward-Bey and T.Y. Hilton with WR Reggie Wayne (knee) done for the season. WRs LaVon Brazill and Griff Whalen are expected to battle for the job.

Fantasy Tip: The winner of the No. 3 battle is still not a recommended fantasy option at this point. Brazill has speed to burn, and seems like he should be the favorite, but unless Heyward-Bey or Hilton also go down, don't waste the roster spot.
