Recent Game Summaries
2018 Week 10 vs GB (1 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
The return of Parker has spelled doom for Grant in recent weeks. He did not register a single target this week and was used solely as a return man. He saw an increase in volume for a brief moment after Albert Wilson was lost for the season but has lost any such edge with the connection between Osweiler and Amendola, and Parker being active. Grant has the ability to run by guys and may have a few big plays left in him this year, but he is not a consistent option going forward.
2018 Week 9 vs NYJ (2 / 1 / 16 / 0 rec)
Just like the rest of the receiving core, Grant did not have a great game. It all came down to an ineffective Osweiler. Grant hauled in 1 of his 2 targets for 16 yards. More than half the targets went to 2 players this week and Grant was not one of them. He took a quick slant across the middle for his lone reception. Grant was another guy who was supposed to benefit from Albert Wilson going on the IR, but that has not happened thus far.
2018 Week 8 vs HOU (8 / 4 / 36 / 0 rec)
With all the injuries to other receivers, Grant was supposed to play a much bigger role this week. He was second on the team with 8 targets, but only caught half due to the ineffective play of Osweiler. Grant's longest catch was 16 yards and that accounted for almost half of his total. He had another play that almost ended in disaster. Grant caught the ball about 10 yards down the field and was hit hard by a defender. The hit came right on the elbow that was holding the ball and it flew into the air and further down the field to DaVante Parker who happened to be in the right place at the right time. It could have easily turned into a fumble or interception, but a teammate bailed him out. Grant should continue to see increased work for the rest of the season, but he will need better quarterback play if he wants to produce.
2018 Week 5 vs CIN (1 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
It has been a toss-up between Grant and Wilson all season and this week he was shut out on the offensive side of the ball. Grant was still able to make his presence felt on special teams this week with a 71-yard punt return for a touchdown. This put the Dolphins up 17-0 at the time and looked to be the nail in the coffin. Unfortunately, that is not how the game played out and Grant only had 1 other target. The Dolphins are going to have to try and get the ball out quickly next week against the Bears pass rush and it may lead to more opportunity for Grant.
2018 Week 3 vs OAK (3 / 2 / 70 / 2 rec)
Miami dug deep into its bag of tricks to help break Grant free this week. With Tannehill as quarterback he saw 2 targets and had 1 catch for 18 yards and a touchdown, but with Albert Wilson throwing the ball he had 1 catch for 52 yards and a touchdown. Tannehill handed the ball off to Drake, who pitched it to Albert Wilson who had come in motion, Wilson rolled right, and Grant was left all alone on a swing route down the right sideline. He broke one tackle and side stepped another defender for the long touchdown. His 18-yard touchdown from Tannehill was a jet sweep where the ball was tossed forward instead of backwards and resulted in a passing touchdown instead of a rushing. Miami has several speedy weapons on offense and Grant showed why he made the team out of camp. Do not expect this type of result every week for Grant, but more so only when Miami finds a hole they think they can exploit.
2018 Week 1 vs TEN (7 / 5 / 38 / 0 rec)
Grant was the second leading receiver this week but made more of an impact on special teams than he did with the first team offense. He was targeted 7 times but made minimal gains with all his catches. His big contribution was a 102-yard kickoff return for a touchdown. This came right after the Titans had tied the game 10-10 to start the 4th quarter. Grant will have to continue to contribute on special teams if he wants to see a role in the offense, especially with the return of Davante Parker looming.
