Team Talk: Miami Dolphins

The Phins are up next in the Team Talk series here at the Brain.  Adam Filadelfo takes his talents to South Beach and gives you his take on all the fantasy news fit to print in Miami.  Follow him on Twitter: @Frostt24.


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 tailback.

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 this season.

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.
