  • Dolphins' Durham Smythe: Inks two-year extension

    The Dolphins signed Smythe to a two-year contract extension Monday.

    Smythe's contract extension comes in the wake of Miami letting Mike Gesicki walk in free agency to ultimately end up with the division-rival Patriots. Though Smythe has generally thrived as a rotational tight end with an emphasis on blocking, having only once reached the 300-yard receiving mark in his five-year career, he's currently staring down an interesting opportunity atop the Dolphins' depth chart. With the team also having traded Hunter Long to the Rams as part of a deal to acquire Jalen Ramsey (shoulder), though, it seems likely that Miami will add to the TE position in April's draft.

  • Dolphins' Durham Smythe: Production drops in 2022

    Smythe secured 15 of 20 targets for 129 yards and one score across 16 games with Miami in the 2022 regular season. He also handled two carries for one yard and a touchdown.

    Smythe and Mike Gesicki both saw their receiving stats plummet under first-year head coach Mike McDaniel, whose arrival coincided with the Dolphins' usage of two-tight-end sets dropping off significantly. Gesicki is headed for free agency this offseason while Smythe is entering the final year of his contract in 2023, but that hardly guarantees that Smythe will see the overwhelming share of snaps at tight end in 2023. Even if he does, Smythe will operate primarily as a blocker and is unlikely to handle heavy volume as a pass catcher.

  • Dolphins' Durham Smythe: Season-high yards in finale

    Smythe secured three of five targets for 39 yards during Sunday's 11-6 win over the Jets.

    Smythe recorded his best receiving performance of the year in Miami's regular-season finale, a game that saw Skylar Thompson rely heavily on short-yardage completions to tight ends and running backs. If Tua Tagovailoa (concussion) or Teddy Bridgewater (finger) are healthy enough to suit up for Sunday's playoff matchup in Buffalo, it would stand to reason that Smythe will revert to his normal role, which involves more blocking than route running.

  • Dolphins' Durham Smythe: Held to one catch again

    Smythe secured his only target for nine yards during Sunday's 23-21 win over the Patriots.

    Smythe has put together three straight games with just one catch, and he's still looking for his first receiving score of the season. The tight end remains off the fantasy radar heading into a Week 18 regular-season finale against the Jets, while Mike Gesicki (four targets and one score Sunday) is at least showing signs of life.

  • Dolphins' Durham Smythe: Records one catch

    Smythe secured his only target for eight yards during Sunday's 26-20 loss to the Packers.

    Smythe played 62 percent of offensive snaps during Sunday's loss, but his role once again involved more blocking than receiving work. Considering that Smythe hasn't topped 25 receiving yards yet in a game this season, he can safely be left off the fantasy radar when the Dolphins take on the Patriots in a must-win Week 17 divisional contest.

  • Dolphins' Durham Smythe: Will play vs. Green Bay

    Smythe (quadriceps) doesn't have an injury designation for Sunday's game against the Packers, Rob Demovsky of reports.

    The tight end should be good to go without any restrictions after a full practice Friday. Smythe gets plenty of playing time but is used primarily as a blocker in a Dolphins offense that isn't hurting for options in the passing game.

  • Dolphins' Durham Smythe: Logs another limited practice

    Smythe (quadriceps) was a limited participant during practice Thursday.

    Smythe has now been limited during each of the first two practices to begin Week 16 prep. The 27-year-old was also limited with quad and knee injuries last Tuesday before working his way back in full before Saturday's loss to Buffalo. While it's unclear if he's dealing with the same quad issue Week 16, Smythe will have another practice to increase his activity before the Dolphins have to assign him an official status for Sunday's game against the Packers.

  • Dolphins' Durham Smythe: Gets in full practice

    Smythe (quadriceps/knee) doesn't have an injury designation for Saturday's game in Buffalo after practicing fully Thursday, Travis Wingfield of the Dolphins' official site reports.

    Despite appearing on the Dolphins' Week 15 injury report with two different issues, Smythe still managed to practice in some capacity Tuesday through Thursday. He should be ready to handle his usual role Sunday as the Dolphins' top tight end, with his blocking prowess going a long way toward him dwarfing Mike Gesicki's snap counts over the past two games. Though he's cleared a 60 percent snap share on both of those occasions while Gesicki has been held under 40 percent both times, Smythe has produced only two receptions for 21 yards between those contests.

  • Dolphins' Durham Smythe: Not targeted in loss

    Smythe was not targeted during Sunday's 23-17 loss to the Chargers.

    Smythe logged his fifth game of the season without a target during Sunday night's loss. Elsewhere, Mike Gesicki drew two targets but went without a catch for the third straight game. The tight end position has been one to avoid for Miami in recent weeks, and that same maxim could serve fantasy managers well heading into a Week 15 matchup against the Bills.

  • Dolphins' Durham Smythe: Limited on Tuesday's estimate

    Smythe (quad/knee) was listed as a limited participant on Tuesday's practice estimate, Daniel Oyefusi of the Miami Herald reports.

    Smythe appears to have picked up a combination of both quad and knee issues during Sunday's loss to the Chargers, putting his Week 15 availability in question. The 27-year-old will have two more chances to ramp back up to full speed in practice in order to avoid carrying an injury designation into Saturday's contest against Buffalo.
