Is Anybody Worth Targeting in the Miami Passing Game?
Miami dealt Kenny Stills to Houston this past weekend, vacating a fair amount of targets and usage in a passing offense led by noted gunslinger Ryan Fitzpatrick. The Dolphins have several intriguing wideouts and aren’t expected to be ahead in many games, which could lead to someone emerging to fantasy relevance. Our experts examine the Miami wide receivers and debate whether any are worth consideration.
Is there a relevant Miami wide receiver?
JoshADHD: Albert Wilson, if 100% healthy, is the wide receiver I’m looking for from this offense. I’m not sure anyone else will be able to get open in time for the quarterback to unload the ball.
Beermakersfan: As long as Ryan Fitzpatrick is the quarterback, there will be some value in this Dolphins pass catching group. I’m looking to grab shares of Wilson and Preston Williams. I know a lot of people are talking up DeVante Parker but that ship has sailed for me. Wilson showed he can put up some monster weeks before he got hurt last season and Williams has the pedigree to be a star in this league. Miami should be playing from behind a ton this year so they will be throwing the ball a lot, don’t be afraid to take the plunge on these wide outs late in your drafts.
STLCards: The only relevant thing about the Miami offense is streaming defenses against them in season long and DFS contests. This team is a dumpster fire. That said, there is cheap value to be had. Wilson has the most potential, but this offense is going to bust more than it booms. If you can get Wilson or Williams late in your draft, it’s perhaps worth a shot. Williams should get more playing time later in the season as the team tanks and looks to evaluate younger players.
JSURab: With Kenny Stills gone it opens up opportunity for guys like Wilson, Williams and Parker. You can take a shot on one of these guys late in best balls, but for me I don’t want anything to do with this offense. This offensive line is now the worst in football with Laremy Tunsil gone and it’s just not an offense I want to invest in.
