  • Dolphins' Christian Wilkins: Fifth-year option picked up

    The Dolphins exercised Wilkins' fifth-year option Thursday.

    Wilkins is now signed through the 2023 campaign, giving both he and the Dolphins more time to negotiate on a long-term extension. The 2019 first-round pick posted a career season in 2021, with 89 total tackles and 4.5 sacks through 17 games.

    Wilkins recorded career-high statistics across the board in his third NFL season, taking a notable step forward in establishing himself as a defensive pillar for Miami.

  • Dolphins' Christian Wilkins: Posts double-digit tackles

    Wilkins had 11 tackles (six solo) during Miami's 34-3 loss to Tennessee on Sunday.

    Wilkins has a combined 26 tackles in his last three appearances, plus a half-sack and one pass breakup in that span. The third-year pro's consistent involvement as a run stopper makes him worthy of real fantasy consideration Week 18 against the Patriots.

  • Dolphins' Christian Wilkins: Records sack

    Wilkins recorded five tackles (two solo) and a sack in the Dolphins' 33-10 win over the Panthers on Sunday.

    Wilkins' sack was his third on the season, and he now has 52 tackles for his 2021 campaign. The third-year pro is easily on pace to smash his career-best 56-tackle season. His three sacks are also already a career high. Drafted in the first round out of Clemson in 2019, Wilkins will look to continue his ascent Sunday against the Giants.

  • Dolphins' Christian Wilkins: Ready to face Jets

    Wilkins (quadriceps) is active for Sunday's matchup against the Jets, Joe Schad of The Palm Beach Post reports.

    Wilkins logged two limited sessions to close the week and entered Sunday with a questionable tag. He'll be ready to take on the Jets, and he has recorded at least five tackles in three of his last four contests.

  • Dolphins' Christian Wilkins: Questionable for Sunday

    Wilkins (quadriceps) is questionable for Sunday's contest against the Jets, Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports.

    After not practicing Wednesday, Wilkins registered back-to-back limited sessions to end the week. If he is unable to suit up Sunday, then Zach Sieler will likely see increased snaps against New York.

  • Dolphins' Christian Wilkins: Big day against Raiders

    Wilkins recorded seven tackles, one sack and two tackles for a loss in Sunday's Week 3 loss to the Raiders.

    Wilkins had by far his most productive effort of the season. He immediately made his presence felt by recording a sack on the Raiders' third play from scrimmage that resulted in a seven-yard loss. Wilkins was in the backfield again when he took down Peyton Barber for a two-yard loss late in the fourth quarter, a play that helped get the ball back to the Dolphins' offense for them to drive down the field for a game-tying touchdown. Through three games, Wilkins has 14 tackles, a sack and a pass defended.

  • Dolphins' Christian Wilkins: Comes off COVID-19 list

    The Dolphins activated Wilkins (undisclosed) from the reserve/COVID-19 list Wednesday.

    Wilkins missed the last two games while on the COVID-19 list, but the 2019 first-round pick is now on track to return for Sunday's tilt against the Jets. Wilkins has only 28 tackles and one sack through eight games this season, so his fantasy upside in IDP leagues is limited, but his return should make it easier for Miami to contain New York's offense.

  • Dolphins' Christian Wilkins: Won't be available Sunday

    Coach Brian Flores confirmed Friday that Wilkins (undisclosed) will be unavailable for Sunday's game against the Chargers, Cameron Wolfe of reports.

    The Dolphins placed Wilkins on the reserve/COVID-19 list Thursday, and he'll be forced to miss at least one game as a result. Though he has only one sack, the 2019 first-round pick has been a stalwart at defensive end for Miami all season, so his presence may prove difficult to replace versus Justin Herbert and the Chargers.
