  Dolphins | Week 17 final stats for Dolphins    Sun Dec 29, 04:11 PM

Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Fitzpatrick completed 28-of-41 passes for 320 yards, one touchdown and no interceptions while running for 15 yards and a score in a stunning Week 17 road upset of the New England Patriots. RB Patrick Laird was the leading rusher with just 21 yards on 11 carries, while WR DeVante Parker led the way with a game-high 137 receiving yards on eight catches for 11 targets. WR Isaiah Ford managed seven grabs for 54 yards on nine targets, WR Albert Wilson was good for five catches for 59 yards on eight targets and TE Mike Gesicki posted a touchdown while totaling 34 yards on four receptions. CB Eric Rowe also had a 35-yard interception for touchdown.

Footballguys view: Fitzpatrick created fantasy value in the most improbable place this year, and helped both Parker and Gesicki arrive in fantasy leagues. The Dolphins 2020 quarterback situation is up in the air, but both Parker and Gesicki will be drafted and Parker could be as high as a WR2 after this performance against Stephon Gilmore punctuated his breakout season.

  Dolphins | Mike Gesicki fully practices    Wed Dec 18, 06:07 PM

Miami Dolphins TE Mike Gesicki (hip) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Dec. 18.

Footballguys view: Gesicki makes for a nice streaming tight end option if you need it in Week 16. He's a big target and can make plays in the red zone. He's a bit hot and cold in terms of production but if you need a streaming option you could do worse.

  Dolphins | Mike Gesicki posts 95 yards    Sun Nov 3, 06:45 PM

Miami Dolphins TE Mike Gesicki caught six passes for 95 yards against the New York Jets in Week 9. He was targeted six times during the game.

Footballguys view: Gesicki showed signs of life earlier in the year, and this week was the first time that the superior athleticism he possesses showed up play after play on an NFL field. The Jets are certainly a matchup to exploit with Evan Engram and the Giants up next, but Gesicki is in streaming consideration against the Colts next week.

  Dolphins | Nick O'Leary looking like Fins' best TE    Thu Aug 15, 02:53 PM

Miami Dolphins TE Nick O'Leary is the team's best pass-catching option at the position, according to Armando Salguero of The Miami Herald.

Footballguys view: This has been the consistent word out of Dolphins camp. While O'Leary is playing well, second-year TE Mike Gesicki continues to struggle both with blocking and pass-catching.

Miami Dolphins TE Mike Gesicki has had an 'uneven' training camp so far, according to Barry Jackson of The Miami Herald.

Footballguys view: That sounds about right. Gesicki has been uneven during all offseason workouts according to reports. The second-year tight end is competing with Dwayne Allen for the starting job in 2019.

  Dolphins | Mike Gesicki figuring things out    Thu Jun 20, 09:28 PM

Miami Dolphins TE Mike Gesicki said he feels more comfortable entering his second season and has been able to adjust quicker on the field.

Footballguys view: Gesicki won't be miscast as a blocker under Brian Flores and new offensive coordinator Chad O'Shea. He's a potential tight end streamer and might be more if he has good chemistry with Ryan Fitzpatrick. Albert WIlson is coming back from a hip injury and Jakeem Grant an achilles injury, so Gesicki could be a prominent target.

  Dolphins | Mike Gesicki to catch 50 balls?    Sat Jun 8, 11:05 PM

Miami Dolphins TE MIke Gesicki should finish with around 50 receptions for 500 yards in his second season, in the opinion of Cameron Wolfe of ESPN.com, and Wolfe believes Gesicki will benefit from having a quarterback other than Ryan Tannehill under center because of Tannehill's inability to utilize the middle of the field effectively.

Footballguys view: Gesicki was also going through blocking boot camp last year under Adam Gase. The new regime should try to use him more as a receiver to leverage his rare measured athleticism at his position. The numbers are modest, but could be enough to make him a low TE1 if he can deliver.

Miami Dolphins TE Mike Gesicki (head) left the Week 7 game early and is being evaluated for a concussion.

Footballguys view: He was cleared from the protocol and re-entered the game. He has some bye/injury value with Brock Osweiler finding the tight end more than Ryan Tannehill did.

  Dolphins | Mike Gesicki to play key role right away    Sun Sep 2, 12:06 PM

Miami Dolphins TE Mike Gesicki is ready to assume a 'starter-like role' at the very least, according to comments made by head coach Adam Gase on Sunday, Sept. 2.

Footballguys view: Gesicki and Philadelphia Eagles second round Dallas Goedert should both get chances to seize big roles in the passing game from day one. Goedert has looked more capable of doing that during the preseason.
