  Dolphins | Billy Turner expected back soon    Thu Aug 28, 11:14 AM

Miami Dolphins OG Billy Turner (foot) hopes to return to practice next week even though he has been wearing a walking boot this week. Turner has a bone bruise in his left foot and will not need surgery.

Footballguys view: The Dolphins need help on the offensive line and even a guy like Turner - good not great - will help shore it up.

  Dolphins | Don Jones on the bubble    Wed Aug 27, 08:11 PM

Miami Dolphins CB Don Jones is on the roster bubble. While he is strong on special teams, he doesn't offer much else, and his roster spot could be in jeopardy.

  Dolphins | Marcus Thigpen in jeopardy    Wed Aug 27, 08:10 PM

Updating a previous report, Miami Dolphins WR Marcus Thigpen (hamstring) will play in the preseason finale Thursday, Aug. 28, against the St. Louis Rams. He hasn't done much at receiver in training camp and the preseason, but he is a valuable kick returner. The team is exploring other options, such as WRs Jarvis Landry and Damian Williams. If the team is comfortable with the alternatives, Thigpen's roster spot could be in jeopardy.

  Dolphins | Knowshon Moreno to top Lamar Miller?    Wed Aug 27, 11:45 AM

Miami Dolphins RB Knowshon Moreno is expected to have more carries than Lamar Miller, in the opinion of Omar Kelly.

Footballguys view: Kelly hasn't always been the most accurate Dolphins beat writer, but he has covered the team for a long time, and Andrew Abramson of the Palm Beach Press also said Moreno was a better fantasy pick than Lamar Miller. Miller's early summer buzz has died down, and Moreno might be a value in PPR leagues.

  Dolphins | Jason Fox at risk    Wed Aug 27, 01:52 AM

Miami Dolphins OT Jason Fox is in serious jeopardy of being cut, as OT Dallas Thomas was taking backup right tackle snaps in practice Tuesday, Aug. 26.

  Dolphins | Marcus Thigpen hanging on    Wed Aug 27, 01:51 AM

Miami Dolphins WR Marcus Thigpen might make the 53-man roster, and his fate could hinge partly on his performance in the return game Thursday, Sept. 4. Offensive coordinator Bill Lazor reportedly likes Thigpen.

Footballguys view: Thigpen's value as a WR/RB tweener and special teams contributor always helps at this time of year. With the Dolphins looking to turn up the tempo, more versatility among skill players is always a good thing.

  Dolphins | Jonathan Freeny in jeopardy    Wed Aug 27, 01:51 AM

Miami Dolphins LB Jonathan Freeny is in jeopardy of losing a roster spot, as LB Jelani Jenkins has come on. Head coach Joe Philbin said Tuesday, Aug. 26, that Jenkins 'has showed up the last couple games a little more, played more physical.'

  Dolphins | Gator Hoskins proving himself    Wed Aug 27, 01:50 AM

Miami Dolphins TE Gator Hoskins has a good chance to make the 53-man roster either as the No. 4 tight end, or No. 3 if the team does not find an upgrade on waivers. If he doesn't stick, he is a candidate to be retained on the practice squad.

Footballguys view: Hoskins was touchdown machine at Marshall, but he was unheralded as a draft prospect and fell out of the draft. He would be the #3 behind Charles Clay and Dion Sims if he sticks.

  Dolphins | Anthony Johnson in good shape    Wed Aug 27, 01:49 AM

Miami Dolphins DT Anthony Johnson has a good chance to crack the 53-man roster. Johnson, DT Kamal Johnson and DT Garrison Smith are competing with DT Isaako Aaitui for the No. 4 defensive tackle job, and Anthony Johnson is considered to have the most upside of the group.

  Dolphins | Tight battle for No. 3 RB job    Wed Aug 27, 01:48 AM

Miami Dolphins RBs Damien Williams and Daniel Thomas are locked in a heated battle for the No. 3 running back job. If Thomas loses out and is cut, the team would save $815,565 against the cap.

Footballguys view: Williams is the one to look at in deep dynasty leagues, and we would be surprised if Thomas somehow survived in Miami for another season.

  Dolphins | Mike Pouncey might avoid PUP    Wed Aug 27, 01:47 AM

Miami Dolphins C Mike Pouncey (hip) has made progress in his recovery from hip surgery, and he might not begin the season on the Physically Unable to Perform (PUP) list. However, a person with knowledge of the situation said Tuesday, Aug. 25, that no official decision has been made. He might be able to return in late September, but if he starts on PUP he would be forced to sit for six weeks.

  Dolphins | Top RB job still up for grabs    Wed Aug 27, 01:46 AM

Miami Dolphins RBs Lamar Miller and Knowshon Moreno split first-team snaps in practice the past two days, and head coach Joe Philbin said Tuesday, Aug. 26, that the job is open. However, he was more effusive and expansive discussing Miller than Moreno this week. 'I like everything Lamar has done since he's gotten here,' Philbin said. 'He's had an excellent offseason and camp. I like everything he's done since April 21.'

Footballguys view: This backfield is about as close to 50-50 as any in the league. Moreno is clearly the superior back in passing situations, but Miller has a lot more juice in his legs. If the offensive line and new scheme come together quickly, both could have flex/RB2 value, but right now neither offers much upside in drafts.

The Miami Dolphins placed DT A.J. Francis (knee), RB Mike Gillislee (hamstring) and TE Arthur Lynch (back) on Reserve/Injured Tuesday, Aug. 26.

Footballguys view: Gilleslee going on IR means that Daniel Thomas still has a pulse, but undrafted rookies Damien Williams and Orleans Darkwa will also have something to say about that.

Miami Dolphins RB Mike Gillislee (hamstring) is on the bubble of making the team. He isn't practicing Tuesday, Aug. 26, and won't play in the final game preseason game Thursday, Aug. 28.

Footballguys view: That all but seals his fate. Yet another Jeff Ireland pick by the wayside.

  Dolphins | Daniel Thomas to play    Tue Aug 26, 10:14 AM

Miami Dolphins RB Daniel Thomas (hamstring) will make his preseason debut in the final game Thursday, Aug. 28.

Footballguys view: Thomas will be playing for his Dolphins life. Undrafted rookie Damien Williams has been looking worthy of a roster spot, so Thomas will have to impress to keep his South Beach address.

  Dolphins | Two signed    Mon Aug 25, 10:11 PM

The Miami Dolphins signed free-agent PK Jake Rogers (Redskins) and free-agent DT Cory Grissom (Chiefs) to undisclosed deals Monday, Aug. 25.

Footballguys view: The Dolphins kicker situation is one to completely avoid in fantasy drafts this year.


  Dolphins | Mike Pouncey misses practice    Mon Aug 25, 09:40 PM

Miami Dolphins C Mike Pouncey (hip) missed practice Monday, Aug. 25, because he was having his surgically repaired hip evaluated by a specialist. Sources familiar with the situation say the outcome of the evaluation was 'favorable,' and Pouncey is hoping to receive medical clearance to return to practice this week.

Footballguys view: Pouncey is still going to likely miss some regular season games and the resulting Dolphins offensive line with five new starters (until Pouncey returns) is going to be a work in progress. The Patriots defense is going to be tough draw in week 1.

  Dolphins | Mike Wallace works extra    Mon Aug 25, 03:23 PM

Miami Dolphins WR Mike Wallace stayed after practice to work with QB Ryan Tannehill.

Footballguys view: Wallace has a $17 million cap number this year. It's good to see him show extra dedication to his craft. The new Bill Lazor offense should be a good fit for Wallace. The Dolphins have been moving him around the formation in order to get him open cleanly. His current ADP is WR33 (7.05) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Dolphins | Damien Williams jumps ahead    Fri Aug 22, 08:34 AM

Miami Dolphins RB Damien Williams has leapfrogged RBs Daniel Thomas and Mike Gillislee on the depth chart.

Footballguys view: Deep dynasty owners should be all over Williams. Re-draft owners should keep his name on waiver-wire speed dial. Williams was undrafted out of Oklahoma this year after being kicked off the Sooners football team for multiple violations of team rules. At 5'11" 222 pounds, Williams has a lightning fast 10-yard split (1.56) and can break off big runs (see 95-yard TD run in 2012 Cotton Bowl). He's got the upside to be an eventual starter, and his receiving ability makes him a great fit in OC Bill Lazor's offense.

  Dolphins | Charles Clay expected to play    Thu Aug 21, 03:33 PM

Miami Dolphins TE Charles Clay (knee) is expected to play in the third preseason game after missing the first two preseason games because of a knee injury. Clay has participated in practice this week and appeared to be fine.

Footballguys view: Clay is a high-end TE2 with some upside. Of course, that upside requires Ryan Tannehill to turn the corner on his career and that's no sure thing, especially with the offensive line still a bit shaky.

  Dolphins | Daryn Colledge may start at LG    Thu Aug 21, 03:26 PM

Miami Dolphins OG Daryn Colledge likely will start at left guard during the third preseason game, because he has received most of the snaps with the first-team offense during practice. OG Billy Turner could also receive time at the position with the starting offense during the game.

Footballguys view: The Dolphins have improved the offensive line in spots, but overall it still has issues as we can see here. Hopefully they can settle it before the seasons starts.

  Dolphins | Shelley Smith at RG    Thu Aug 21, 10:44 AM

Miami Dolphins OG Shelley Smith is expected to start at right guard this season after experimenting at center and left guard.

Footballguys view: The offensive line in Miami is a bit of a mess, yet it's less of a mess than it was in 2013--which is saying something. This is a big year for quarterback Ryan Tannehill, and forcing him to function under constant pressure is not ideal. We'll have to watch this closely. Nobody is taking Tannehill as a starter (save for in dual quarterback leagues) and he is rated as a low-end QB2. But a poor offensive line resulting in poor quarterback play will impact Mike Wallace (WR3), Brian Hartline (WR5) and the already dismal backfield.

  Dolphins | Knowshon Moreno might play    Thu Aug 21, 12:49 AM

  Dolphins | Mike Pouncey limps off the practice field    Wed Aug 20, 03:22 PM

Miami Dolphins C Mike Pouncey (undisclosed) limped off the practice field early Wednesday, Aug. 20.

Footballguys view: Pouncey is not going to play for at least the first few games of the season, and Kelly thought this was not a good sign for the one incumbent starter on the Dolphins offensive line.
