Week 3: at Dallas Cowboys

All WR vs DAL

FBG says: Bad matchup. The Dolphins offense was shut out last week as their struggles continued in all facets of the game. Ryan Fitzpatrick threw for three interceptions and just 89 yards before being benched in favor of allowing Josh Rosen some playing time. Rosen also threw an interception while completing just 39 percent of his pass attempts. Both quarterbacks were pressured heavily as the Dolphins offensive line has been terrible, ranking firmly at the bottom of the league according to Matt Bitonti of Footballguys. Ryan Fitzpatrick will remain the starter for Week 3, but this situation is fluid and could change mid-game. Rookie receiver Preston Williams has been a bright spot for Miami's offense as he has performed relatively well, all things considered. DeVante Parker, on the other hand, was targeted a team-leading seven times last week and failed to catch a single pass as he continues to disappoint. The Cowboys should have a clear advantage against a struggling Dolphins offense this week. The Miami offensive line will struggle against what has been a mediocre Cowboys defensive line. Both Demarcus Lawrence and Meliek Collins have had great starts to the season, but the rest of this unit has not impressed in the pass-rushing department. The return of edge rusher Robert Quinn from suspension will provide a much-needed boost to this Cowboys pass rush that has notched just two sacks to start the season. The secondary for Dallas looked decent, but they have yet to face what anyone would label as stiff competition with only Eli Manning and Case Keenum on their resume. This secondary did suffer a big loss from last week, however, as strong safety Xavier Woods injured his hamstring and is expected to miss multiple weeks. The talent behind Woods is thin, so safety now becomes a key weakness for this untested Dallas secondary. Even with that loss, however, the Cowboys will still have the advantage this week against the struggling Dolphins offense.

Recent Game Summaries

2019 Week 2 vs NE (7 / 3 / 22 / 0 rec, 1 / -4 / 0 rush)

With how much both Rosen and Fitzpatrick struggled, it was not surprising to see Grant struggle as well. He was targeted 7 times and caught 3 of them. The 7 targets tied for the team lead and he was given a carry in the run game. Grant was stopped for -4 yards on the carry, but he did have a long 16-yard catch down the middle that accounted for the majority of his 22 yards. It has been a slow start for Grant since signing his extension and it looks like it will be a long season for everyone in Miami.

2019 Week 1 vs BAL (3 / 1 / -3 / 0 rec)

The ugliness continues for the Dolphins and Wilson after he managed to catch 2 of his 4 targets for just 13 yards. 12 of those yards came on a single play and the rest of the day it seemed as if he was barely on the field. Wilson injured his calf at one point in the game and his return was questionable. Some may wonder if he truly hurt himself or if he did not want to go back on the field as the team continued to get embarrassed. Wilson will have to battle with Parker, Hurns, and Grant the rest of the season for targets.
