Recent Game Summaries
2019 Week 12 vs CLE (1 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
After returning a kick for a touchdown and scoring a rushing touchdown last week, Grant suffered a setback and left the game with a foot injury. He was able to walk to the sideline but then was carted down the tunnel to be looked at. No broken bones have been reported but he was seen leaving the stadium in a walking boot. It is another blow to an already thin receiving core for Miami. Grant had a single target and no catches at the time of the injury.
2019 Week 11 vs BUF (3 / 3 / 32 / 0 rec, 1 / 7 / 1 rush)
It seems like it should be easy to make a name for yourself in the Miami offense. They have traded away the majority of their skill players and are giving several guys a chance to make big plays. Enter Grant this week and his 2 touchdowns. The first score came on a 101-yard kick return. He fielded the ball in the end zone and took off down the middle of the field. After making a few guys miss and cutting to the outside it became a foot race to the end zone with only the kicker to beat. This brought the score to 23-14 and gave the Dolphins some hope going into the second half. Grant then made another big play when the offense ran a trick play with Ballage taking the direct snap and handing to Grant on the end around. Grant took the ball 7 yards off the right end and into the end zone. Both plays were an impressive showcase of speed and ability to make a defender miss. Grant also caught all 3 of his targets for 32 yards and showed that Miami should work him into the offensive game plan more often.
2019 Week 4 vs LAC (1 / 1 / 6 / 0 rec, 1 / -2 / 0 rush)
It has been a long season already for Grant in the offense. He continues to handle the kick and punt return duties, but they do not utilize his speed in the offense. He was targeted a single time and caught the ball for 6 yards. Grant was also given the ball on a jet sweep and was tackled in the back field for a loss of 2 yards. That is not enough touches for a player that can break a big play any time he touches the ball. Rosen does not have much time to throw the ball but could easily complete a quick slant or even screen to Grant and just see what he can make happen with his legs. This offense has no identity right now and Grant is no more than a glorified return man at the moment.
2019 Week 3 vs DAL (7 / 4 / 27 / 0 rec, 1 / 4 / 0 rush)
Grant was second on the team with 7 targets but ended up being 4th in yards this week. His longest catch was 10 yards and he was also given the ball on a jet sweep that went for 4 yards. Grant has the speed to break off a big play, but he has not clicked with Rosen and seems to disappear in the offense behind Williams, Parker, and Drake. He is still handling kick and punt returns but he has yet to make a big play there either. Grant will lose the most value when Albert Wilson comes back from injury and may be pushed even further by Allen Hurns with a similar skill set. Grant had plenty of opportunity this week but was unable to deliver for the Dolphins.
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.
