Dolphins | Kenny Stills unlikely to stay with MIA

Mon, 27 Feb 2017 21:59:57 -0800

Updating a previous item, Miami Dolphins WR Kenny Stills is "more likely to leave via free agency" than remain with the club, according to "multiple NFL sources."

Fantasy Tip: Stills wants big dollars when he becomes a free agent, and probably more than he deserves considering he's yet to post a 1,000-yard campaign in his four-year career. He's been mostly connected to the Eagles, but no matter where he ends up, he'll have to prove himself before owners should even consider him in the WR3/FLEX picture in standard formats.

Dolphins | Kenny Stills' price range set?

Mon, 27 Feb 2017 10:30:22 -0800

Miami Dolphins impending free-agent WR Kenny Stills' free-agent market value is expected to be around $12 million per year, according to the Miami Herald's Armando Salguero. The Dolphins hope to make a strong pitch to Stills this week in an effort to re-sign him, but sources believe Stills will test free agency.

Fantasy Tip: The Philadelphia Eagles have been one of the teams mentioned as a possible suitor for Stills. Stills' game is tailored for standard leagues and he should be viewed as a WR4 in such formats.

Dolphins | Julius Thomas expendable due to blocking woes

Sun, 26 Feb 2017 11:45:21 -0800

Miami Dolphins TE Julius Thomas wore out his welcome with the Jacksonville Jaguars in part due to his limitations as a blocker, according to a source, which called Thomas' blocking "non-existent".

Fantasy Tip: A former college basketball player, Thomas has never been a great blocker, so his struggles in that facet of the game certainly shouldn't have come as a surprise to the Jaguars, who will officially deal him to the Dolphins at the start of the new league year on March 9. Miami head coach Adam Gase was Thomas' offensive coordinator during his best years with the Denver Broncos and should be able to help his pupil climb back to low-end TE1 status in fantasy.

Dolphins | Ryan Tannehill healthy

Thu, 23 Feb 2017 10:25:27 -0800

Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill (knee) will be able to participate in all of the Dolphins' offseason activities. He will not undergo reconstructive surgery on his severely sprained knee. Weeks ago, Tannehill passed a battery of tests that determined the functionality and stability of his knees. Furthermore, Tannehill will not be more susceptible to future anterior cruciate ligament injuries in his left knee. Tannehill's rigorous rehabilitation program, including adult stem cell treatment, brought just as good results as surgery would have, according to team doctors and athletic trainers. Tannehill will play the 2017 season with a brace on the knee.

Fantasy Tip: Tannehill has plenty of time to get used to his knee and playing with the brace. Don't be surprised if he's held back somewhat in the offseason program, but he'll be good to go for the regular season as of now. Tannehill has yet to reach that "next level" in his career and remains a backup fantasy quarterback.

Dolphins | Miami still interested in Dion Sims

Wed, 22 Feb 2017 11:42:23 -0800

Miami Dolphins impending free-agent TE Dion Sims is a player the Dolphins are still interested in re-signing even though they have an agreement to acquire Jacksonville Jaguars TE Julius Thomas, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Sims would be insurance for the Dolphins in case Thomas continues to struggle with injuries, but Sims may want to test the free-agent market to see if he can find a starting job. Sims probably should only be considered a low-end No. 2 tight end no matter where he plays in 2017.

Dolphins | Julius Thomas passes physical

Wed, 22 Feb 2017 06:00:24 -0800

Miami Dolphins TE Julius Thomas passed his physical with the club Tuesday, Feb. 21.

Fantasy Tip: Thomas will be in a familiar system he thrived in with the Denver Broncos, and he has a quarterback that has a knack of throwing to tight ends. It could be a great spot for him if he can stay healthy. He's a bounce-back pick as a TE2.

Dolphins | Julius Thomas wanted to reunite with old OC

Mon, 20 Feb 2017 20:09:29 -0800

Updating a previous report, Miami Dolphins TE Julius Thomas restructured his contract in order to land with the Dolphins because he wanted to reunite with head coach Adam Gase, who was his old offensive coordinator with the Denver Broncos.

Fantasy Tip: It makes sense, as Gase runs the same system in Miami that he did in Denver, where Thomas absolutely thrived during his final two years with the club. In fact, the 28-year-old produced consecutive 12-touchdown campaigns with the Broncos, before disappointing greatly as a member of the Jaguars, with whom he scored a total of just nine touchdowns in 21 contests. As long as he can stay healthy, an extra-motivated Thomas could be a terrific value pick at the end of drafts next season.

Dolphins | Julius Thomas reworks deal

Mon, 20 Feb 2017 15:46:28 -0800

Miami Dolphins impending TE Julius Thomas agreed to restructure his contract as part of his trade from the Jacksonville Jaguars to the Dolphins, according to a source. Thomas was scheduled to count $8.3 million against the salary cap in 2017, $9.8 million in 2018 and $10.3 million in 2019 before the restructuring.

Fantasy Tip: Thomas has had success in an Adam Gase offense when he played for the Denver Broncos and should have a solid role in the Dolphins passing game if he can stay healthy. Thomas has the ability of be a No. 1 fantasy tight end, but owners may want to consider him a better No. 2 tight end because of his injury history.

Dolphins | Miami acquiring Julius Thomas

Mon, 20 Feb 2017 14:16:07 -0800

Jacksonville Jaguars TE Julius Thomas is being acquired by the Miami Dolphins in exchange for a late-round 2017 draft pick Monday, Feb. 20.

Fantasy Tip: Thomas has really come down to earth after two 12-touchdown seasons with the Denver Broncos. Injuries have plagued him throughout his career, too. The Dolphins are hoping for the Thomas of old with this trade, and he could be a valuable receiving threat, particularly in the red zone. That being said, expectations should be tempered. It's safer to draft Thomas as a backup fantasy tight end after he missed seven games last season.

Dolphins | Miami still pursuing Julius Thomas

Sun, 19 Feb 2017 16:20:06 -0800

Miami Dolphins OT Branden Albert could be traded to the Jacksonville Jaguars in exchange for TE Julius Thomas, according to league sources, and Albert said he wouldn't "ruffle feathers" if he was traded.

Fantasy Tip: Thomas was underutilized in Jacksonville, and he has battled injuries throughout his career. However, he also has a couple of strong years under his belt. He is worth grabbing as a TE2 in 2017 in case he returns to form.
