Stills secured one of three targets for 74 yards and a touchdown in Thursday's 22-7 loss to the Bengals.
The speedster got loose for a beauty of a 74-yard touchdown pass from Ryan Tannehill on the Dolphins' second play, which would turn out to be the only score of the night for the beleaguered offense. The majority of the targets the rest of the night went to Jarvis Landry, with Stills seeing a noticeable drop from the season-high eight he saw in Week 3 versus the Browns. With DeVante Parker and Jarvis Landry seemingly commanding the majority of Tannehill's attention week-to-week, Stills' appears to be heavily big play-dependent for his fantasy production to date this season.
Stills had five receptions for 76 yards in the Miami victory over Cleveland on Sunday.
Stills was second on the team with eight targets. He will face a much tougher task on short rest Thursday in Cincinnati. The Dolphins may once again throw more than they run due to the injury to Arian Foster (groin). Jarvis Landry will almost always lead Miami in targets and receptions but Stills will still have value with his ability to get behind the secondary.
Stills dropped an easy touchdown pass in Week 1, so the score Sunday is a plus for the wideout's fantasy owners. That said, with DeVante Parker back in action, Stills' target volume could be sporadic. In Week 2, both Parker and fellow WR Jarvis Landry saw 13 targets, while tight end Jordan Cameron logged seven.
Stills caught just one pass on five targets for 16 yards in Sunday's 12-10 loss at Seattle.
With DeVante Parker (hamstring) out Sunday, Stills failed to take advantage, dropping a wide open bomb in the first half that would have resulted in an easy touchdown. He had another shot at a long pass play in the fourth quarter, but Ryan Tannehill overthrew him. Meanwhile, Jarvis Landry was a target monster, as usual, grabbing seven of 10 targets for 59 yards. While Parker is out, expect Stills to make some occasional big plays as Miami's deep threat, but based on Sunday's performance, it's hard to get overly excited about him.
After missing a few practices with a minor back injury, Stills rejoined his teammates for Monday's session. He should be all systems go for Sunday in Seattle, whereas teammate DeVante Parker (hamstring) looks increasingly questionable after missing another practice. Parker's potential absence might help Stills get a few more targets, but the matchup is still imposing.
