News you need to know
From the upgrade/downgrade report (Mon Nov 12): Stills should get healthier during the bye and it's DeVante Parker who is dealing with a shoulder injury that is more pressing during the bye. Stills could get back to being a high ceiling WR3/Flex before the end of the season with Ryan Tannehill returning.

Recent Game Summaries
2018 Week 10 vs GB (3 / 2 / 26 / 0 rec)
Another week and another dud by Stills. His value has all but diminished with the quarterback change, but the return of Parker has made it even more difficult for him. Stills saw the same number of targets as Gore did out of the back field and a mere 1/3 of the targets that Amendola or Parker saw. He managed to snare 2 of his 3 targets with 18 of his 26 total yards coming on a single play. The Dolphins are not using Stills to his strengths right now and he is quietly fading back to irrelevance. He has the potential to break a long play, but they would have to actually start throwing him the ball to make that happen.
2018 Week 9 vs NYJ (1 / 1 / 19 / 0 rec)
It has been tough going for Stills after Tannehill left with an injury. He does not seem to click with Osweiler and that was evident again this week. Stills hauled in his lone target for 19 yards and played almost no role on offense for the rest of the game. He has lost some looks with Parker finally returning but he is a shell of the player who scored 2 touchdowns in week 1.
2018 Week 7 vs DET (3 / 1 / 5 / 1 rec)
With DaVante Parker ruled out again and Albert Wilson hurt in the first half, it would make sense that Stills would see more targets. However, that was not the case and he continues to struggle to find a role in the offense. He did pull in a 5-yard fade to the corner of the end zone for his only catch of the game. Osweiler led him so far that he could not stop and ended up running over a security guard. He gave her the ball after checking to make sure she was ok. Stills has not lived up to his production from week 1 and seems to be the odd man out with Osweiler under center.
2018 Week 6 vs CHI (2 / 1 / 35 / 0 rec)
It was a very quiet game for Stills until the 4th quarter and overtime. Even then, it almost seemed like he was not even on the field. In the 4th quarter it was Stills that caught the 2-pt conversion to tie the game and then it was his 35-yard reception that helped give them a chance at the 1 before the ball was fumbled away by Drake. Osweiler got Albert Wilson and Danny Amendola involved more than anyone else this week and that really cut into Stills number of targets. He continues to trend downward after a big game in week 1.
2018 Week 5 vs CIN (5 / 2 / 17 / 0 rec)
The passing game was not effective for the Dolphins at all this week. They still managed to build a 14-point lead, but Stills did not play a big role in that. He caught 2 of his 5 targets and failed to surpass 20 yards this week. He was targeted deep down the field at the end of the game, but another poor throw by Tannehill resulted in an interception rather than garbage time yards. Stills had a catch of 13 yards and then was held to 4 yards on his only other catch. The boom or bust trend for Stills has moved towards the bust side after his breakout game in week 1. Facing an elite pass rush against Chicago next week, Stills may have some opportunity on quick passes, but Tannehill will have to play much better to make that happen.
2018 Week 4 vs NE (6 / 3 / 40 / 0 rec)
It was a very promising start for Stills as he hauled in the first play of the game for 22 yards down the right sideline. He looked to have a step on his defender and could possibly take it to the house, but the safety managed to get over and push him out of bounds. From there it was errant passes sandwiched by short gains across the middle. Despite playing from behind, the Dolphins did not take many shots down field and Stills could not break free from his man. Stills has always been a boom or bust type of player and this game was definitely a bust for him.
2018 Week 3 vs OAK (5 / 3 / 61 / 1 rec)
It continues to be a boom or bust type of season for Stills. After a monster game in week 1, Stills then proceeded to lay an egg in week 2. This week all of the big plays were working for the Dolphins and Stills was able to get in on the action. In week 1 he relied on breaking underneath passes for long touchdowns. This week he ran straight past his coverage for a 34-yard touchdown. Stills beat his man in a one on one situation on the outside and the safety was too late getting over to give any help. Tannehill fired a perfect strike down the field that hit Stills just over his outside shoulder, in stride, and in the back of the end zone. The ball could not have been thrown any better as Stills was the only one who could make a play. This one play accounted for a little over half of his yards and played a major factor in the overall outcome of the game. With the return of Davante Parker and the emergence of Albert Wilson and Jakeem Grant in the offense, it will be interesting to see if Stills loses any playing time.
2018 Week 2 vs NYJ (3 / 2 / 17 / 0 rec)
After breaking out in week one, Stills was largely held in check this week. The Dolphins seemed content with short passes and letting the receivers run, but Stills was unable to break free. His longest reception of the day was for 13 yards and accounted for all but 4 of his total on the day. Tannehill did not look comfortable in the pocket and did not take any shots down the field to Stills. No receiver had more than 5 targets on the day and Stills had no luck creating separation underneath. Unfortunately for Stills, his skill set is too close to many of the other receivers for the Dolphins and he is going to be a huge boom or bust candidate every week. The Jets tackled very well this week and Stills had one of his bust games.
2018 Week 1 vs TEN (5 / 4 / 106 / 2 rec)
The entire offense seemed to run through Stills this week even though it was only two big plays. He had 5 total targets but surpassed 100 yards and two touchdowns. The first touchdown came when Tannehill noticed the defender jumping an inside route that left Stills breaking the outside wide open. The two receivers crossed in front of one another, giving just enough time for Stills to cut the corner and dive at the pylon for a 10-yard touchdown. The second touchdown was a beautiful bomb right down the middle of the field. Stills split the safeties and ran untouched for 75-yards and into the end zone. With Davante Parker out of commission with a broken finger, Stills stepped up to lead the team. The run game did just enough to open things up for Stills. It will be tougher for Stills to duplicate this performance due to the skewed number put up with the one big play. He serves best running routes underneath and in traffic. Look for his numbers to regress significantly next week.
