New Dolphins coach Adam Gase is excited to work with receiver Kenny Stills this year, and Stills should be the No. 3 receiver in Miami's offense behind DeVante Parker and Jarvis Landry. Stills spent 2015 with the Dolphins after two years with the Saints, and his stats declined across the board. He had season lows in catches (27), yards (440) and touchdowns (three), but his role should increase with Rishard Matthews now in Tennessee. Stills so far in his career has proven to just be a deep threat, but hopefully Gase can maximize his skills and get him and Ryan Tannehill to develop a solid rapport. We would only draft Stills with a late-round flier in the majority of leagues.
Head coach Adam Gase said Stills will be more involved in the offense in 2016, Andrew Abramson of the Palm Beach Post reports. Stills had a disappointing first season in Miami, catching just 27 passes for 440 yards and three touchdowns. Greg Jennings is no longer on the roster, but with DeVante Parker and Jarvis Landry likely to account for a huge portion of the targets, Stills is still slated for a complementary role. That being said, he doesn't appear to have much competition, if any, for the No. 3 wide receiver job.
Stills finished his first season in Miami with 27 receptions, 440 yards, and three touchdowns. Stills was brought in to be the deep threat that the Dolphins lost when they traded away Mike Wallace. Predictably though, he was less than spectacular as quarterback Ryan Tannehill has had problems throwing the deep ball since day one. The emergence of DeVante Parker also means that Stills will go into next season as no better than third on the wide receiver depth chart.
Stills (hamstring) is questionable to return Sunday against the Patriots, Adam Beasley of the Miami Herald reports. Stills had caught one of his team-high four pass targets for 11 yards prior to leaving the game. Greg Jennings could see an increase in snaps while Stills is out of the contest.
Stills (thigh) is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Patriots. With Rishard Matthews on IR, Stills is a candidate to see some looks in the Dolphins' season finale, but he's a hit-or-miss fantasy option in Week 17, given the health and presence of fellow wideouts Jarvis Landry and DeVante Parker.
Stills (thigh) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Patriots, the Miami Herald's Adam Beasley reports. As is Rishard Matthews, though of the two, Stills seems more likely to play. That said, assuming Stills suits up in Miami's season finale, he's a hit-or-miss fantasy option with less Week 17 upside than fellow wideouts Jarvis Landry and DeVante Parker.
