  Dolphins | DeVante Parker activated    Mon Aug 2, 11:51 AM

Miami Dolphins WR DeVante Parker (undisclosed) was activated from the Physically Unable to Perform list Monday, Aug. 2.

Footballguys view: Good news for the veteran here. He was placed on the PUP list at the start of camp for whatever injury situation this is (the team left his status undisclosed). Now, he's back and ready to build on the chemistry he started with QB Tua Tagovailoa last year. Parker is seen as a WR5 with upside for Fantasy GMs in 2021. He's got a current ADP of WR57 (13.09) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Dolphins | Will Fuller remains day-to-day    Sat Jul 31, 07:47 PM

Updating a previous report, Miami Dolphins WR Will Fuller (undisclosed) is listed as day-to-day, according to head coach Brian Flores.

Footballguys view: Hopefully Fuller gets back on the field soon. Between this, Jaylen Waddle still reportedly limping at times per Adam Beasley and DeVante Parker starting camp on the PUP list, a suddenly resurgent Albert Wilson will have a chance to break into the wide receiver rotation and further muddy this unclear passing game target tree.

  Dolphins | Xavien Howard improving, remains out    Sat Jul 31, 07:45 PM

Updating previous reports, Miami Dolphins CB Xavien Howard (ankle) did not participate in practice Saturday, July 31, but he is improving, according to head coach Brian Flores.

Footballguys view: There have been no reports of a team closing in on a deal for Howard even though he has requested a trade. We'll see if this is a passive holdout type of injury, or one that Howard returns to the practice field from soon in a sign that he isn't going to be a problem if the Dolphins don't trade him or give him a new contract.

  Dolphins | No practice for Xavien Howard    Thu Jul 29, 08:47 PM

Miami Dolphins CB Xavien Howard (undisclosed) did not participate in practice Thursday, July 29, because of a minor injury, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Howard wants to be dealt, but his additional desire for a new contract could make that more difficult. This could be a new soft holdout that is all players who are unhappy with their current situation have at their disposal because of stricter fines for missing camp under the new CBA.

  Dolphins | DeVante Parker to PUP    Wed Jul 28, 11:51 AM

Miami Dolphins WR DeVante Parker (undisclosed) was placed on the Physically Unable to Perform list Wednesday, July 28.

Footballguys view: No telling what the issue is here but Parker was out of action for two games in 2020 and was bothered by a hamstring injury for most of the year. The Dolphins made an emphasis on the WR position this offseason, adding Will Fuller in free agency and Jaylen Waddle in the draft. That makes Parker more of a no.3 option for the passing game when healthy. We'll see how this pecking order shakes out in training camp.

  Dolphins | Preston Williams to PUP    Tue Jul 27, 10:41 AM

Miami Dolphins WR Preston Williams (foot) was placed on the Physically Unable to Perform list Tuesday, July 27.

Footballguys view: Williams has talent but he's had trouble staying healthy over the last two years. He was carted off the field in Week 9 last year with this foot injury and some thought he'd be ready for the start of camp. The Dolphins decided otherwise, and now Williams will take more time to get fully healthy. With a revamped wide receiver room, Williams is at best the no.4 guy on the depth chart behind DeVante Parker, Jaylen Waddle and Will Fuller.

  Dolphins | Hunter Long inks rookie pact    Mon Jul 26, 02:05 PM

Miami Dolphins third-round pick TE Hunter Long (Boston College) signed his four-year rookie contract Monday, July 26. Financial terms of the deal were not immediately disclosed.

Footballguys view: Long is going to work his way onto the roster behind Mike Gesicki and Durham Smythe. During his time at Boston College, Long showed well as a blocker and was smooth as a receiver. He's a "Y" tight end who can do it all, and his 57 catches in 2020 led the FBS at the TE position. Long is not flashy, but he is a reliable receiver who can become a favorite target of his quarterback when called upon. Scoop him up in dynasty formats and wait for his opportunity.

Miami Dolphins second-round draft choice S Jevon Holland signed a four-year contract with the Dolphins Friday, July 23. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Holland should get playing time right away in a Dolphins secondary that is set at corner (assuming the situation with Xavien Howard's contract gets worked out), but needs steady play at safety. He can line up at multiple positions in the secondary and could start as a rookie.

  Dolphins | Isaiah Ford back with Miami    Fri Jul 16, 01:37 PM

Free agent WR Isaiah Ford on Friday, July 16, re-signed with the Miami Dolphins. Also Friday, Dolphins S Brian Cole and OL Tyler Gauthier were placed on waivers.

Footballguys view: Ford is back with the Dolphins...again. A seventh-round pick of the Dolphins in the 2017 NFL draft, Ford was traded away to the Patriots in 2020 but only lasted a few weeks before the team released him. The Dolphins scooped him back up even though he's done little for them. They did not tender him, so Ford was free to sign anywhere but didn't have much interest. The Dolphins bring him back as depth on the roster.

Per Silver, there is 'a lot of trade chatter' concerning Howard and 'several teams, all in win-now mode, pondering such a move.'

Footballguys view: The Dolphins have made moves to upgrade their wide receivers, and that means Hurns could be cut at the end of training camp. Wilson and Grant may already have an early edge over Hurns.

  Dolphins | Tua Tagovailoa struggled over middle    Sun Jul 4, 08:24 PM

Miami Dolphins QB Tua Tagovailoa's 67.9 completion percentage on throws between the numbers ranked 30th among 32 qualified quarterbacks in 2020.

Footballguys view: Most young quarterbacks struggle over the middle, and that's one of the reasons they can be easy to gameplan against. Tagovailoa is going to be asked to show more aggression as a passer in 2021, and that includes being better over the middle. The tight ends will help there, but so will slot receiver Jaylen Waddle. The 2021 first-round pick is a playmaker who can take a short pass and turn it into long gains.

  Dolphins | Rob Jones a good bet to surprise?    Wed Jun 30, 02:57 PM

Miami Dolphins OL Rob Jones - an undrafted rookie free-agent from Middle Tennessee - could eventually start in the league at guard or right tackle, according to Senior Bowl executive director and former NFL scout Jim Nagy.'His tape is really good. He's the better prospect (than Dolphins seventh-round pick Larnel Coleman) in my opinion. He could eventually start in the league at guard or right tackle. His best fit is probably at guard. I didn't see much of a difference in (Dolphins' 2020 second-rounder) Robert Hunt and Robert Jones off their college tape. I thought Robert Jones would be a third- or fourth-round pick. He's a talented guy who will play in the league a long time. Physical and tough,' Nagy told Barry Jackson of Miami Herald.

  Dolphins | Elandon Roberts missed minicamp    Sat Jun 26, 05:21 PM

Miami Dolphins LB Elandon Roberts (knee) did not participate in the mandatory minicamp because he is still recovering from a knee injury.

Footballguys view: Roberts is recovering from a serious knee injury he suffered in December that required surgery. The team brought him back on a one year, $2 million deal while he was still sidelined by the surgery to be a leader of the defense and he is one of only two returning captains from last year (offensive lineman Jesse Davis is the other). Miami traded for Benardrick McKinney in the offseason, and he could be the other starter inside next to Jerome Baker, who was recently signed to a lucrative extension, but the team has also said McKinney will play multiple roles in the defense, so there could still be snaps inside for Roberts if he has a smooth recovery in training camp.

  Dolphins | Plan to Be More Aggressive with QB Tagovailoa    Wed Jun 23, 01:30 PM

Cameron Wolfe, from ESPN.com, reports the Miami Dolphins intend for QB Tua Tagovailoa to be more aggressive this season.

Footballguys view: In a recent practice, Tagovailoa was having a bad day and threw five interceptions in drizzly conditions. The Dolphins want him to learn from his mistakes but push things down the field more than he did during his rookie season. There's no need for Tagovailoa to be timid as a passer, and the team put more weapons around him in the passing game this offseason. We'll see if the formula works out for the Dolphins and their young quarterback. Keep this aggressive plan in mind if you play in a league that penalizes you for interceptions. Pushing the ball downfield may lead to more picks for Tagovailoa.

  Dolphins | Xavien Howard a ballhawk    Sat Jun 19, 10:20 PM

Miami Dolphins CB Xavien Howard has recorded an NFL-high 22 interceptions since the start of the 2017 season.

Footballguys view: Howard is currently in a contract dispute with the Dolphins. They will have to make some concession to him after he outperformed his price tag last year, and there's a small chance that they could consider trading him if a team is willing to give up a first and another premium pick. They did receive calls about him at the trade deadline last year.

Miami Dolphins QB Tua Tagovailoa threw five interceptions during practice Tuesday, June 15. He said the team wanted to be more aggressive in the passing game during drills.

Footballguys view: It's not a great day, but Tagovailoa was being more aggressive and practice was held in some drizzle according to reports. Who knows what it means long term, probably not much, but we'll hope Tagovailoa will take this teachable moments and get better.

  Dolphins | Mike Gesicki open to extension    Tue Jun 15, 10:19 AM

Miami Dolphins TE Mike Gesicki is in the final year of his rookie deal and open to signing an extension.

Footballguys view: Gesicki has come around over the last couple of years. He's improved his game each season and his size makes him a threat in the red zone. Gesicki should be a favorite target of QB Tua Tagovailoa in 2021. He's a low-end TE1 for Fantasy GMs.
