Miami Dolphins news, rumors and injuries
Sat, 22 Oct 2016 09:10:20 -0700
Fantasy Tip: It goes without saying such a performance usually earns one some job security, but Walker reminds us Arian Foster is still in the mix and beat Ajayi out for the starting job back in training camp. If and when Foster gets completely healthy, he is almost certain to replace Ajayi on passing downs and steal some early-down carries. Ajayi will have his hands full against the Buffalo Bills in Week 7 and should be considered no more than a low-end RB2 in that matchup.

The National Football League has decided not to fine Miami Dolphins DT Ndamukong Suh for kicking Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger in the right knee during the fourth quarter of Week 6's game. Roethlisberger, who will miss Week 7's game against the New England Patriots after undergoing surgery to repair a torn meniscus in his left knee, received a bruise on his right knee after Suh kicked him.

Miami Dolphins CB Xavien Howard (knee) did not participate in practice Friday, Oct. 21, and has been ruled out for Week 7. LB Spencer Paysinger (calf, hamstring) was limited during practice and is listed as questionable. LB Jelani Jenkins (groin) and CB Tony Lippett (hamstring) fully participated in practice and are listed as questionable. DE Jason Jones (non-injury) fully participated in practice and is not on the injury report.

Fantasy Tip: Foster should be available to play in Week 7 but may be behind Jay Ajayi in terms of snaps during the game. He should still have a decent role in the offense and can be a flex option in fantasy leagues.
Fri, 21 Oct 2016 13:44:46 -0700
Fantasy Tip: MarQueis Gray likely will be the starting tight end this week with Sims and Jordan Cameron sidelined. Gray recorded 81 yards in the last game but probably should be avoided in most standard leagues.
Fri, 21 Oct 2016 13:26:18 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Cameron will be missing his fourth straight game because of the concussion and there is no timetable for his return. MarQueis Gray probably will receive a majority of the work at tight end in Week 7 but should be avoided in most leagues.

Miami Dolphins CB Xavien Howard (knee) did not practice Thursday, Oct. 20. CB Tony Lippett (hamstring) and LB Spencer Paysinger (hamstring, calf) were limited. LB Jelani Jenkins (groin) and DE Jason Jones (rest) participated fully.

Fantasy Tip: If Sims isn't cleared in time for this weekend then the Dolphins will really be hurting at tight end with Jordan Cameron also sidelined. Miami's tight ends are a position to avoid altogether.
Thu, 20 Oct 2016 15:49:17 -0700
Fantasy Tip: It will be interesting to see how Adam Gase utilizes all of his running backs. Jay Ajayi deserves more work after last week's performance. Foster's main role could be in the passing game. He's a flex at best in Miami's current backfield situation.
Thu, 20 Oct 2016 09:14:47 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Cameron has suffered concussions in the past, so the team are taking their time with his return. He probably will miss at least one more game and should be avoided in all leagues.

The Miami Dolphins claimed DT Nick X. Williams off waivers from the Kansas City Chiefs Wednesday, Oct. 19. He has been more of a 3-4 defensive end before, and is likely headed for defensive tackle duty with Miami.

Miami Dolphins CB Xavien Howard (knee), DE Jason Jones (non-injury) and SS Reshad Jones (shoulder) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Oct. 19. CB Tony Lippett (hamstring) was limited during practice, while LB Jelani Jenkins (groin) fully participated in practice.
Wed, 19 Oct 2016 13:31:34 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Foster should be active for the team's Week 7 game but his role is uncertain since Jay Ajayi had a terrific game last week. Foster should see some touches during the game, but owners likely will have better options available.
Wed, 19 Oct 2016 13:28:22 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Sims will have to pass all of his concussion tests before he is cleared to play, so owners will need to keep an eye on his situation. Sims has recorded only 94 yards this season and is not a great option if he is cleared to play.
Wed, 19 Oct 2016 13:20:41 -0700
Fantasy Tip: The Dolphins are taking things slow with Cameron because of his past concussions and could keep him out for another week. Owners in all leagues should be able to find better options.
