Miami Dolphins news, rumors and injuries

Miami Dolphins RB Kenyan Drake (hamstring) is expected to play extensively in the club's fourth and final preseason game on Thursday, Sept. 1. He has missed much of training camp with a lingering hamstring injury.
Fantasy Tip: While Jay Ajayi and Arian Foster have the top two spots locked up, Drake, a third-round pick, could propel himself into the conversation with a solid showing. He's theoretically competing with Damien Williams and Isaiah Pead (hamstring), but there's no way the 'Fins will cut Drake.

Miami Dolphins WR DeVante Parker (hamstring) has had a hard time staying healthy early in his NFL career. He tweaked his left hamstring in practice Monday, Aug. 29, and he missed a lot of time due to a foot injury in his rookie season of 2015. Head coach Adam Gase appeared to challenge Parker Tuesday, Aug. 30, to do what it takes to stay out of the trainer's room. "We're going to keep strengthening him up," Gase said. "I feel like I've been through this with (Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas) in Denver. Felt like he was always hurt. One thing after the other."
Fantasy Tip: Parker was expected to be the team's big downfield threat this season, but all indications are that Kenny Stills has assumed that role and has passed Parker on the depth chart due to his injury issues. For now, depend on Parker only as a depth player and WR5 with big upside if he can stay on the field.

Fantasy Tip: Still has been turning heads in training camp and the preseason, showing off his speed. He is worth a late-round flyer as a WR5 in most standard fantasy formats.

Updating previous reports, Miami Dolphins CB Jelani Jenkins' (knee, ankle) knee scope is considered minor in nature and he will likely require two to three weeks to fully recover, batting any setbacks. The club is hopeful he will be able to play in the regular-season opener versus the Seattle Seahawks Sept. 11.
