  Dolphins | Ryan Tannehill thriving in recent weeks    Thu Oct 23, 01:53 PM

Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill has completed 72 percent of his passes for 799 yards, six touchdowns and three interceptions since the team refused to name him the starter heading into their Week 4 game. Several reasons account for this, starting with the fact that offensive coordinator Bill Lazor has reduced long passing plays, and he has installed more of the read-option play. Tannehill also has proven that he can step up in the face of pressure and adversity. He threw 12 touchdown passes and five interceptions in five games after the team's 2013 bullying scandal. The biggest factor this year, though, has been Lazor tailoring the offense to Tannehill's strengths. The team has averaged 5.9 yards per play on 254 snaps where Tannehill has been the focal point. In the 148 snaps where he hasn't been, the team averages 4.5 yards per play. Tannehill is also protecting the ball much better, and he's on pace to turn the ball over 13 times this year, compared to 22 times last season.

Footballguys view: Tannehill needed to take the next step--and he definitely has. We have him rated as a borderline QB1 this week and feel he can take full advantage of a shaky and inconsistent Jaguars defense coming off their first win of the season.

  Dolphins | Charles Clay limited     Wed Oct 22, 05:44 PM

  Dolphins | Jarvis Landy moving up depth chart    Wed Oct 22, 02:07 PM

Miami Dolphins WR Jarvis Landry has moved ahead of WR Brandon Gibson on the team's depth chart. Gibson said no one has explained to him why he was inactive for Week 7.

Footballguys view: Landry is an exciting rookie for fantasy owners to monitor. He's a good route-runner and Landry has the ability to make tough catches seem routine.

  Dolphins | Ryan Tannehill not throwing deep    Wed Oct 22, 02:00 PM

Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill has completed five of his 18 passes that have gone for at least 20 yards this season and is on pace to throw only 48 deep passes this season. Tannehill has thrown 58 play-action passes and is on pace to throw more than the 90 play-action passes he throw last season. He has an 87.6 passer rating on play-action passes.

Footballguys view: Tannehill just looks off when he throws the ball deep--especially when he's targeting Mike Wallace. The team is letting him run more, and they're keeping things simple for him with shorter passing. It's working out, so expect them to maintain similar game plans going forward.

  Dolphins | Ryan Tannehill running more    Wed Oct 22, 01:59 PM

Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill has rushed for 150 yards on 22 carries so far this season, after rushing only 40 times for 238 yards in the entire 2013 season. Offensive coordinator Bill Lazor has been willing to call the read option more often.

Footballguys view: Tannehill had a 65-yard touchdown run against Oklahoma State years ago when he was in college...it's no mystery that he's a great athlete who can use his legs to attack a defense. It's great to see the Dolphins use that asset in his game to full effectiveness. Simply put, Tannehill looks more comfortable over the last few weeks.

  Dolphins | Make two roster moves    Tue Oct 21, 02:29 PM

The Miami Dolphins signed free-agent WR LaRon Byrd (Cowboys) and re-signed DT Deandre Coleman Tuesday, Oct. 21.

Footballguys view: Byrd is a huge target with a large wingspan. We're keeping an eye on him in super super deep dynasty leagues, but that's it.

  Dolphins | Lamar Miller practicing with brace    Tue Oct 21, 02:13 PM

Miami Dolphins RB Lamar Miller (knee) practiced with a brace on his right knee Tuesday, Oct. 21.

  Dolphins | Ryan Tannehill thrives in reduced system    Mon Oct 20, 10:27 AM

Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill was effective in a scaled-back offense that utilized short-to-intermediate throws and reduced the number of troubling deep throws Sunday, Oct. 19. He was 25-for-32 for 277 yards and two touchdowns in the Week 7 game and rushed six times for 48 yards. He completed his first 14 passes to open the game for the second time in three weeks.

The Miami Dolphins have declared DL Anthony Johnson, OT Billy Turner, WR Brandon Gibson, TE Gator Hoskins, OT Jason Fox, S Jimmy Wilson, OG Shelley Smith inactive for Week 7.

Footballguys view: Jarvis Landry should get a lot of run with the Dolphins offense for the second straight week without Gibson in the lineup.

  Dolphins | Brian Hartline a forgotten man    Fri Oct 17, 05:33 PM

Miami Dolphins WR Brian Hartline has become a forgotten man in the team's offense after back-to-back 1,000-yard seasons. He is currently fourth on the team in catches (16) and third in receiving yards (161), and he's on pace for his worst statistical season since 2011. The Dolphins have basically stopped throwing his way; he was targeted just twice in Week 6 and was without a catch for the first time in almost two years. Tannehill has had the most snaps of any receiver on the team in every game this year, but only once was he targeted more often than WR Mike Wallace.

  Dolphins | Lamar Miller should play    Fri Oct 17, 05:25 PM

Miami Dolphins RB Lamar Miller (knee) was limited in practice for the third straight day Friday, Oct. 17, but is probable for Week 7 against the Chicago Bears.

Footballguys view: Miller has never gotten the chance to carry a feature-back sized workload for an entire season, but that's what the Miami Dolphins are going to have to ask him to do with Knowshon Moreno sidelined for the season.

Miami Dolphins TE Charles Clay (knee) was limited in practice for the third straight day Friday, Oct. 17, but is probable for Week 7 against the Chicago Bears.

Footballguys view: Clay was a help for fantasy teams last year, but a better running game and the emergence of Jarvis Landry have combined with an early knee issue to keep Clay grounded this year.

  Dolphins | Could run the ball more    Thu Oct 16, 09:55 AM

Miami Dolphins RB Lamar Miller could be used more in the running game, in the opinion of beat writer Armando Salguero. The Dolphins rank third in rushing yards per attempt (5.0 yards per carry), sixth in rushing yards per game (136.2) but just 15th in rushing attempts per game with 27.4.

Footballguys view: We're excited to see Lamar Miller even in a tougher matchup. The good news is, he's the top back in Miami, so he'll get a ton of carries. But the matchup makes us feel RB2 is the best he'll do.

  Dolphins | Bigger role for Jarvis Landry?    Tue Oct 14, 08:47 PM

Miami Dolphins WR Jarvis Landry was the team's starting slot receiver in Week 6 in place of WR Brandon Gibson (hamstring), and he caught a team-high six passes for 75 yards and touchdown. His eight targets were the second most on the team.

Footballguys view: Landry has replaced Brian Hartline as the primary target behind Mike Wallace. The rookie from LSU looks much more explosive, and he plays with a high level of concentration.

  Dolphins | More on Knowshon Moreno    Tue Oct 14, 09:10 AM

  Dolphins | Knowshon Moreno out for season    Tue Oct 14, 08:35 AM

Miami Dolphins RB Knowshon Moreno (knee) was placed on Reserve/Injured with a torn anterior cruciate ligament. Moreno only had one carry in the second half of the game Sunday, Oct. 12, but the team didn't offer an explanation that an injury was the cause.

Footballguys view: Well, that takes care of that. Moreno is done for the season, and the Dolphins have to move on with Lamar Miller perhaps getting an even larger workload. Miller has been looking good this year, and most fantasy owners can start him as a RB2 with RB1 upside every week. After multiple knee injuries throughout his career, one has to wonder how much football is left with Moreno. He's set to be a free agent in 2015.

  Dolphins | Brian Hartline blanked in loss    Sun Oct 12, 06:05 PM

Miami Dolphins WR Brian Hartline had zero catches in the Week 6 game against the Green Bay Packers, and he was targeted just two times.
