Helping his cause was the fact that the Dolphins had to keep throwing the ball to keep pace with Aaron Rodgers and company. Mike Wallace still got his share of catches and remains the go-to guy in an inconsistent passing attack. But it's worth noting that for all the passing the Dolphins had to do, Hartline was nowhere to be found, going without a catch on two targets.
Landry probably isn't a priority off the waiver wire since he's still growing into his role, but as a second-round pick, he has the ability to matter in Fantasy and bears watching going forward.
