Player Outlook

Mike Gesicki will hopefully take a step forward in his second season in the NFL, and he's someone to monitor in training camp. Gesicki had a disappointing rookie campaign in 2018 and failed to score more than seven PPR points in any game. But he will hopefully benefit with new coach Brian Flores and a new quarterback in either Josh Rosen or Ryan Fitzpatrick. Miami did add Dwayne Allen as a free agent from New England, but he's more of a blocking tight end than a receiving threat. Gesicki could be a key part of the Dolphins passing game along with Kenny Stills, DeVante Parker and Albert Wilson, and he's worth a late-round flier as a No. 2 Fantasy tight end in deeper leagues.

Player News
  • Gesicki said he feels "more comfortable" and is "able to adapt a little bit quicker" heading into his second NFL season, Chris Perkins of The Athletic reports. Following an unimpressive rookie campaign in which he caught only 22 passes for 202 yards, Gesicki appears primed to take a step forward in Year 2. Rookie struggles are par for the course at the tight end position, and Gesicki was specifically billed as an athletic but raw prospect when the Dolphins selected him No. 42 overall in the 2018 NFL Draft. The team acquired Dwayne Allen in free agency, a veteran known for his blocking ability, which should allow Gesicki to focus on his strengths as a receiving weapon and red zone threat. As a focal piece of Miami's rebuilding process, it seems likely that Gesicki will receive plenty of snaps and opportunities to develop in 2019.

  • Dolphins' Mike Gesicki: Adds additional weight
    By RotoWire Staff

    Gesicki has put on 10 pounds of muscle during the offseason, Dave Hyde of the Sun-Sentinel reports. Gesicki never had much of an opportunity to display the type of athleticism that made him a second-round pick in the 2018 NFL Draft, compiling just 22 catches and 220 yards in his rookie campaign. The largest knock on Gesicki's prospect profile was his inability to block, something that was likely on the mind of the Dolphins' brass when signing Dwayne Allen (primarily a blocking tight end), but the 23-year-old seems to be aware of the criticism, putting on additional muscle in an effort to be a more well-rounded option. Considering a rebuild seems to be a focal point in Miami, the Dolphins may well opt to give the majority of the snaps to their young tight end, particularly if he displays more promise as a blocker.

  • Dolphins' Mike Gesicki: Getting love from new staff
    By RotoWire Staff

    General manager Chris Grier said the new coaching staff has spent a lot of time discussing how to best use Gesicki in 2019, Joe Schad of The Palm Beach Post reports. Selected at No. 42 overall in last year's draft, Gesicki played all 16 games (seven starts) as a rookie but managed just 22 catches for 202 yards on 32 targets. The quiet year was pretty typical for a rookie tight end -- even one with an impressive combination of college production and combine stats. Gesicki did come into the league facing serious questions about his blocking, and the Dolphins' signing of Dwayne Allen suggests they still have that same concern. Even so, the franchise's commitment to a rebuilding process should work in favor of the 23-year-old over his 29-year-old counterpart. It also doesn't hurt that the Dolphins lack a target hog at wide receiver and signed a quarterback (Ryan Fitzpatrick) who favors a risky approach.

  • Gesicki caught one of two targets for 18 yards during Sunday's 42-17 loss to the Bills. He finishes the season with 22 catches for 202 yards. Gesicki was drafted by Miami in the second round of the 2018 NFL Draft primarily to serve as a red zone threat, but ends his rookie season without a single touchdown. Despite failing to make an impact in the Dolphins' offense all year, Gesicki remains a key part of the team's plans for the future and possesses a significant amount of upside going forward. Tight ends historically require a significant amount of time to acclimate to the speed of the NFL, and Gesicki's development should be approached with patience and tempered optimism. The 23-year-old will likely remain off the fantasy radar this offseason, but changes to Miami's personnel groups and coaching staff could propel Gesicki into a better situation in 2019 if the Dolphins' offense as a whole is able to improve.

  • Dolphins' Mike Gesicki: Catches one pass in loss
    By RotoWire Staff

    Gesicki caught his only target for five yards during Sunday's 17-7 loss to the Jaguars. Gesicki has now caught four passes across his last five games. The rookie second-round pick has showcased his potential as a red-zone threat on limited occasions this season but has yet to put together anything close to resembling a complete game. Gesicki is not worth fantasy attention outside of dynasty formats.
