WR Isaiah Ford - New England Patriots
|6-1, 194||Born: 2-9-1996||College: Virginia Tech||Drafted: Round 7, pick 2017|
2019 Week 14 vs NYJ (9 / 6 / 92 / 0 rec)
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.
2019 Week 17 vs NE (9 / 7 / 54 / 0 rec, 1 / 11 / 0 rush)
This week was all about pride and securing a spot on the team for next year. Ford has played well down the stretch and may have solidified a roster spot for next season after how well he played today. He was second on the team in targets with 9 and was also good for second in receptions with 7. Albert Wilson had 5 more yards, but Ford was the go-to receiver outside of Parker this week. He played the role of possession receiver this week and had his longest catch go for just 15 yards. Miami's offense needed someone to make catches outside of Parker and Gesicki and Ford filled that role this week. He is not going to wow anyone with his speed and his route running still needs work, but the Dolphins look to have a young receiver to work with going forward.
