Gesicki secured four of seven targets for 34 yards and one touchdown during Sunday's 27-24 win over the Patriots. Gesicki was held in check for the majority of Sunday's upset win, but he showed up with just 24 seconds remaining in the fourth quarter by beating safety Patrick Chung to reel in a game-winning touchdown. After being held without a score in his rookie season, Gesicki caught 51 of 89 targets for 570 yards and five touchdowns across 16 games this year. The Dolphins will work to further develop the ultra-athletic Penn State product into a key part of their passing game in 2020.
Gesicki secured six of 12 targets for 82 yards and two touchdowns in the Dolphins' 38-35 overtime win against the Bengals on Sunday. The second-year tight end was clicking with quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick on Sunday, recording scoring grabs of 31 and 13 yards in the second and third quarters, respectively. Gesicki has come to life after a mostly moribund first half of the season, as he's brought in 32 of 57 targets for 383 yards and four touchdowns over his last eight games. Gesicki will look to put a fitting stamp on his strong second half in a tough matchup against the Patriots in Week 17.
Gesicki caught four of eight targets for 47 yards in Sunday's 36-20 loss to the Giants. Gesicki has cooled down after a two-game touchdown streak, totaling five catches for 53 yards in two games since. The second-year tight end has tantalizing physical gifts, but he's still trying to find consistency. Playing for a 3-11 Dolphins team doesn't help in that regard, though a prime matchup awaits Week 16 with the 1-13 Bengals coming to town.
Gesicki was only able to bring in one of five targets for a gain of six yards during Sunday's 22-21 loss to the Jets. Gesicki had a nice two-game run prior to Sunday's outing, totaling 107 yards and two touchdowns, but he was unable to keep up that pace against a Jets defense that's been stingy against tight ends all season. If there is a silver lining to Sunday's clunker, it's that Gesicki was targeted in the red zone three times, all from inside the 10-yard line, after seeing just four total red-zone targets coming into the game. He'll look to convert some of those into touchdowns Sunday against the Giants' 26th-ranked pass defense.
Gesicki caught five of seven targets for 79 yards and a touchdown during Sunday's 37-31 win against the Eagles. The second-year tight end has seemingly opened the floodgates in the TD department, as he's now scored in consecutive weeks after failing to reach the end zone during his first 26 regular-season games. He's been more highly involved than ever over the past two weeks, commanding a combined 14 targets against the Browns and Eagles after garnering just 4.3 targets per game between Weeks 1 and 11. Gesicki is operating within a Dolphins offense that has exceeded 24 points in three of its past five outings after failing to reach that mark once Weeks 1 through 8. Week 14 brings a tough matchup with a Jets defense that has allowed just 48 receptions and two touchdowns to the tight end position all year.
