Cameron has had his issues trying to get in sync with Ryan Tannehill and the offense seemingly since being signed by Miami before last season. Perhaps the system has finally clicked for him and he will once again become the reliable fantasy tight end that he was for Cleveland. Sunday was a game in which Tannehill had to throw the ball 45 times so just about everyone had their share of targets. We have seen Tannehill look for his tight end in the red zone in the past so this could be the start of Cameron becoming fantasy relevant once again.
Cameron could re-establish himself on the fantasy radar in the coming weeks, but his two-catch, six-yard effort in Week 1 suggests that a wait-and-see approach is in order on that front.
Cameron was a full participant throughout practice this week, so he's widely expected to play Sunday despite carrying a thigh issue. In Week 1 against the Seahawks, Cameron only caught two passes (on three targets) for six yards, and although Sunday's matchup with the Patriots doesn't appear much more favorable, the veteran will still hope for an improved performance.
Cameron was only targeted three times but this was still an underwhelming performance. He has had trouble getting in sync with the offense all preseason and very little changed in Week 1. While it's true that the Dolphins don't really have any one on the roster who will push him for the starting job, another game or two like this could see QB Ryan Tannehill look in just about any other direction but his during games.
The starting tight end had a pair of drops and was generally the most ineffective of all of the
