From the upgrade/downgrade report (Mon Dec 9): Ford stepped up in place of Devante Parker and might have some deep league value against the Giants if Parker isn't ready for Week 15.

Week 15: at New York Giants - $5500

All WR vs NYG

FBG says: Great matchup. Ryan Fitzpatrick has led a high-volume passing attack that, in spite of some recent strong performances, has posted bottom-feeding numbers across the board. The Dolphins' passing game has posted 15 touchdowns to 17 interceptions on the season, the 26th and 31st-best numbers in the league, respectively, to this point. At just 5.3 net yards per attempt, the efficiency of the unit is abysmal, ranking 30th in the league, and it is primarily a product of a lack of talent in the receiving corps. DeVante Parker and Albert Wilson, the team's top two wide receivers following the injury to Preston Williams, are both in concussion protocol, and their status for this weekend's game is uncertain. Expect Isaiah Ford and Allen Hurns to step up in their absence, with Mike Gesicki contributing at the tight end position. Ford led the way with 9 targets, 6 receptions, and 92 receiving yards last weekend without Parker and Wilson. This weekend, a soft matchup and high passing volume could foster another unexpectedly strong day for Miami through the day. The New York Giants' pass defense is one of the weakest in the NFL, as they have allowed 6 300-yard passers and 7 multi-touchdown performances through the air. Last weekend, a depleted Philadelphia Eagles' aerial attack posted 325 yards and 2 touchdowns, including over 132 yards and 12 catches from their two tight ends. The Giants struggle to put pressure on opposing quarterbacks, with the sixth-lowest hurry rate of any team in the league, even their number-one pass rusher, Markus Golden's, pass-rushing numbers are misleading. Golden leads the way with 8.5 sacks on the season, but he is converting his pressures into sacks at a wildly unsustainable rate, and when he is not taking down opposing quarterbacks, he rarely applies pressure otherwise. In the secondary, the Giants are especially weak, with Janoris Jenkins and DeAndre Baker grading as two of the weakest cover-corners in the NFL. The Giants have allowed 10 separate 100-yard or multi-touchdown performances to opposing pass-catchers this season. This weekend, look for tight end Mike Gesicki and DeVante Parker or Albert Wilson, if healthy, to capitalize on this soft matchup against one of the league's weakest pass defenses.

Recent Game Summaries

2019 Week 14 vs NYJ (9 / 6 / 92 / 0 rec - 12.2 points, $4500)

With the rash of injuries that has hit the Dolphins this season, Ford was thrust into a more prominent role this week. He has appeared in only 5 games this season as he has been shuttled back and forth between the practice squad. The former 7th round pick led the team in receiving yards this week after catching 6 of his 9 targets. Ford's longest catch went for 25 yards and was the longest offensive play for the Dolphins this week. He has more than earned a longer look down the stretch for the Dolphins to see if he is a part of their long term rebuild. Do not expect him to lead the team in receiving again, but he should play the rest of the season and be good for a few targets a game.
