Just because the weather has always been nice in Miami doesn't mean
their football team has. And while their team hasn't had much success lately,
neither have their fantasy players. This year could change all of that with the
addition of a top receiver and the emergence of their quarterback and
Ryan Tannehill - While his rookie season wasn't all that bad, many expect
his second season to be better. How much better is the question. My
answer is: not that much better. He may bes a good option as nothing more than your second
quarterback. The Dolphins have given Tannehill a viable deep threat
but that will only help so much. Tannehill will be better if his run
game can take off but I don't see Tannehill as a breakout fantasy star
Mike Wallace - Wallace is more of a big name than a big fantasy star. His
boom or bust potential makes it difficult for me to trust him as an
every week starter. While he is more than capable of putting up big
numbers at any time, fantasy football is about consistency, which
Wallace will not give owners. He can be drafted as a receiver three with
two potential but you won't be able to count on him every week.
Brian Hartline - All Hartline has really done is have one very big week
and all of a sudden he became fantasy relevant. While he does hold value
in a PPR format, he can't be trusted to produce for more than a week or
two at a time. He's good bench depth but until he shows he can produce
more regularly, he shouldn't be in lineups unless necessary.
Lamar Miller - Miller will probably be the starting tailback going into
the season. He should take over for Reggie Bush and did fairly well with
limited touches last year. He's a far superior runner compared to
Daniel Thomas and could provide great value in the later rounds of your
draft. He's at best a running back two going into the season but could
quickly find himself a top back by the end of the season.
Daniel Thomas - Thomas' only real value right now is if Miller gets
injured or if you don't believe Miller wins the starting tailback job.
He seems pedestrian and doesn't look nearly as explosive as Lamar
Miller. He's probably going to go undrafted in most shallow leagues and
more than likely should at this point. If Miller doesn't pan out, Thomas
could be worth a waiver wire pickup but right now, use the roster spot
on a player with more upside.
