  Dolphins | Kenyan Drake out of protocol    Tue Aug 22, 11:08 AM

Miami Dolphins RB Kenyan Drake (concussion) is out of the concussion protocol Tuesday, Aug. 22.

Footballguys view: He was practicing on Monday, so it was easy to see he was going to be out of the protocol. Both Drake and starter Jay Ajayi have been been in the concussion protocol during the preseason...just something to remember for fantasy owners. Ajayi is a RB1 for fantasy with a current ADP of RB8 (2.03) in 12-team PPR leagues. He's an intriguing prospect this year because around half his rushing yards last year came in three games (all 200-yard games). We'll see if Ajayi can be more consistent this year. Drake is not handcuff worthy for Ajayi owners as the team would use a RBBC if the starter went down.

  Dolphins | Leonte Carroo back at practice    Mon Aug 21, 08:55 PM

Miami Dolphins WR Leonte Carroo (hamstring) participated in practice Monday, Aug. 21, after missing practice last week because of a hamstring injury.

Footballguys view: Carroo, a third-round pick out of Rutgers last year, is currently buried on the depth chart as the no4 WR for the Dolphins (at best). His redraft value is non-existent, but Carroo is an interesting dynasty prospect to keep an eye on.

  Dolphins | Rey Maualuga to miss preseason game    Mon Aug 21, 08:53 PM

Miami Dolphins LB Rey Maualuga did not participate in practice Monday, Aug. 21, and will not play in the third preseason game because he is still working his way back into game shape.

Footballguys view: It's the dress rehearsal for the regular season, but Maualuga is not ready. They'll work him back into shape so that he can begin the regular season as a two-down run-stuffer for the defense.

  Dolphins | Jay Cutler shining Monday    Mon Aug 21, 11:42 AM

Miami Dolphins QB Jay Cutler made numerous plays in practice Monday, Aug. 21. Beat writer Omar Kelly opined that Cutler provided clear upgrades from QB Ryan Tannehill in arm strength and pocket presence.

Footballguys view: The argument could be made that Cutler will be better for the Dolphins skill position players because of his willingness to challenge a defense. We're not upgrading the players astronomically, but it just makes sense that Cutler is a little more willing to take chances and that could pay off with a few more big plays from this offense that sometimes looked stale with Tannehill calling the shots.

Miami Dolphins C Mike Pouncey (hip) worked three snaps Monday, Aug. 21, and was removed, which has been his routine.

  Dolphins | Kenyan Drake practicing    Mon Aug 21, 10:40 AM

Miami Dolphins RB Kenyan Drake (concussion) is practicing Monday, Aug. 21, but he remains in the concussion protocol. Drake had a couple of good runs with the third-team offense in 11-on-11 drills.

Footballguys view: Drake is a speedy runner in a straight line and he can gash a defense with a proper lane. He's not a handcuff for fantasy owners who select Jay Ajayi in 2017. If something happens to Ajayi, the Dolphins go to a RBBC with guys like Drake and Damien Williams splitting time.

  Dolphins | Leonte Carroo returns    Mon Aug 21, 10:12 AM

Miami Dolphins WR Leonte Carroo (hamstring) returned to practice Monday, Aug. 21.

Footballguys view: A third-round pick out of Rutgers last year, Carroo has an intriguing skill set. He's a dynasty prospect to hold, but Carroo is buried on the depth chart in 2017 for the Dolphins. He's competing for the no4 spot behind Jarvis Landry, DeVante Parker and Kenny Stills.

  Dolphins | Rey Maualuga likely will be MLB    Sat Aug 19, 02:49 PM

Miami Dolphins LB Rey Maualuga is expected to be the starting middle linebacker this season and be used primarily on running downs.

Footballguys view: Maualuga is not the same player he used to be, but the Dolphins needed help inside. He likely will come off the field when the team lines up in their nickel formation.

  Dolphins | DeVante Parker compared to Alshon Jeffery    Fri Aug 18, 04:45 PM

Miami Dolphins WR DeVante Parker is comparable to Philadelphia Eagles WR Alshon Jeffery but with more speed, according to QB Jay Cutler.

Footballguys view: Cutler is a bold thrower who will give a receiver a chance to win 50-50 balls, which is not a big part of Ryan Tannehill's game. Parker's outlook is improving and he might be worth drafting ahead of Jarvis Landry at this point.

  Dolphins | Jay Cutler works two drives in MIA debut    Thu Aug 17, 08:21 PM

Miami Dolphins QB Jay Cutler made his preseason debut Thursday, August 17, against the Baltimore Ravens, working two drives before being removed from the contest. He completed 3-of-6 passes for 24 yards.

Footballguys view: Cutler targeted DeVante Parker heavily and compared him to Alshon Jeffery after the game. It looks like the pecking order among Miami wide receivers is changing.

  Dolphins | Jay Ajayi will start Thursday    Thu Aug 17, 05:59 PM

Miami Dolphins RB Jay Ajayi (concussion) will start against the Baltimore Ravens Thursday, Aug. 17.

Footballguys view: We're looking forward to seeing how a Ajayi meshes with Jay Cutler tonight. The Ravens, even when they don't have their full starters in, can be a tough defense to play. Fantasy GM's are clearly high on him, as he is the seventh running back going off the board and drafts currently. We agree, if the offensive line can hold itself together this year.

  Dolphins | Ryan Tannehill having surgery Thursday    Thu Aug 17, 02:02 PM

Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill (knee) is undergoing reconstructive knee surgery Thursday, Aug. 17, according to sources. A full recovery is expected to take between 10 and 12 months. At that rate, Tannehill would at least be ready for training camp next offseason.

Footballguys view: It's a long road back for Tannehill, and his security as starting quarterback for the Dolphins is questionable. This season was supposed to be a big step forward for him but instead he's going to watch Jay Cutler step into his role. We get a look at Cutler tonight as the Dolphins play the Baltimore Ravens.

  Dolphins | Miami hosting Rey Maualuga    Tue Aug 15, 05:09 PM

Free-agent LB Rey Maualuga (Bengals) is working out for the Miami Dolphins Tuesday, Aug. 15.

Footballguys view: The Dolphins need help at the position after losing second-round pick Raekwon McMillan to a torn ACL. Maualuga is not the player he used to be, but if added by the Dolphins he'd likely start inside as a run-stuffing linebacker.

Miami Dolphins RB Jay Ajayi (concussion) has been cleared from the concussion protocol Tuesday, Aug. 15.

Miami Dolphins head coach Adam Gase said he has not decided if QB Jay Cutler will play in the preseason game against the Baltimore Ravens Thursday, Aug. 17, but is leaning toward playing Cutler.

Footballguys view: Cutler knows the offense, so that's not going to be a problem for him. As the team's starter, Cutler needs to build a rapport with the weapons around him in Miami.

  Dolphins | Kenyan Drake injured    Mon Aug 14, 12:05 PM

Miami Dolphins RB Kenyan Drake (head) suffered an apparent head injury in practice Monday, Aug. 14.

Footballguys view: It's been considered a 'could be' concussion at this point. If that's the case, it would make the second Dolphins RB (Jay Ajayi) to suffer a concussion during training camp this year. Drake is a backup to Ajayi, but he would lead a RBBC if the starter were to go down.

  Dolphins | Julius Thomas had tight back    Mon Aug 14, 10:51 AM

Updating an earlier report, Miami Dolphins TE Julius Thomas (back) received the veteran's day off Monday, Aug. 14, after his back tightened up.

Footballguys view: Thomas is talented, and we've already seen him produce at a high level under Adam Gase when the two were with the Broncos......BUT, Thomas has yet to play a full 16-game season in his pro career. Now entering year seven in the NFL, we'd be startled if he gets a full season in 2017. Draft him as a TE2 with TE1 upside in certain matchups...especially is QB Jay Cutler shows a propensity to target him if/when Thomas flashes in the preseason.

Miami Dolphins TE Julius Thomas (back) is out of practice Monday, Aug. 14.

Footballguys view: He's getting a veteran day of rest. Thomas had his back tighten up, but with a day of rest he could get back out there soon. You're drafting him as a TE2 even though fantasy owners know TE1 upside is there...so long as Thomas is healthy.

  Dolphins | Jay Ajayi cleared    Sun Aug 13, 12:17 PM

Miami Dolphins RB Jay Ajayi is no longer in the concussion protocol, according to head coach Adam Gase.

Footballguys view: Good news for fantasy owners here. Ajayi is a low-end RB1 if healthy. Especially with Jay Cutler at quarterback, we feel the Dolphins are going to be committed to the ground game. He's going off the board at RB9 (2.04) in 12-team PPR leagues. It shouldn't take Ajayi that long to get back up to speed after missing the early portions of training camp due to this concussion.

  Dolphins | Jay Ajayi remains sidelined    Sat Aug 12, 02:35 PM

Miami Dolphins RB Jay Ajayi (concussion) did not participate in practice Saturday, Aug. 12.

Footballguys view: Ajayi is in the concussion protocol, and there's no telling when he'll be ready to practice. You're taking a chance he'll be fully cleared by the start of the regular season if you select Ajayi at his current ADP near the top of the second round.

  Dolphins | Ryan Tannehill placed on IR    Sat Aug 12, 02:14 PM

Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill (knee) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Saturday, Aug. 12.

Footballguys view: As expected, this move ends the 2017 season for Tannehill. He'll get knee surgery after opting to not have surgery for a partially torn ACL last year. Jay Cutler will now move into the starting job for the Dolphins. He was solid under Adam Gase when the two were with the Bears, and Cutler will keep the Dolphins passing game at (or maybe slightly above) the level it was with Tannehill.
