Dolphins' Jakeem Grant: Nothing doing in Denver
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grant caught two of six targets for 12 yards during Sunday's 20-13 loss to the Broncos.

Grant also had one carry for three yards and was held to just six punt return yards after having accumulated at least 50 in three of the last four games. He once again operated as the No. 2 receiver in place of Preston Williams (foot) and drew his highest target total of the season, but Grant was unable to capitalize on those opportunities versus the Broncos' defense. A Week 12 road matchup against the Jets will provide him, and Miami's aerial attack as a whole, with an opportunity to get right.

Dolphins' Jakeem Grant: Leading wideout in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grant brought in four of five targets for 43 yards and a touchdown in the Dolphins' 29-21 win over the Chargers on Sunday.

The fifth-year speedster ascended to the No. 2 receiver role in the absence of Preston Williams (foot), and he ended up pacing the Dolphins in receptions and receiving yards. Grant also was the only wideout to record a touchdown for Miami, bringing in a three-yard throw from Tua Tagovailoa near the end of the first quarter. Grant's elite speed does give him some serious fantasy upside, but what appears to be a tendency to play things safe with Tagovailoa thus far and rely heavily on the team's above-average defense may cap the receiver's overall potential. Grant will look to find the end zone again in a Week 11 battle against the Broncos.

Dolphins' Jakeem Grant: Looks set for starting role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grant is expected to handle a regular starting role for the Dolphins after the team placed Preston Williams (foot) on injured reserve Wednesday, Cameron Wolfe of ESPN.com reports.

Grant drew five targets while playing just 48 percent of offensive snaps during last weekend's win over the Cardinals, but his opportunities opposite No. 1 wideout DeVante Parker. Along with Grant, Mack Hollins, who caught a touchdown against Arizona, will see more action in three-wide sets, while rookies Lynn Bowden, Malcolm Perry and Kirk Merritt could also receive increased reps.

Dolphins' Jakeem Grant: Held in check by Cardinals
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grant secured four of five targets for 35 yards during Sundays' 34-31 win over Arizona.

Grant only played 48 percent of offensive snaps, operating primarily out of the slot, but his five targets were tied with Preston Williams (foot) for the second-highest mark on the team. It's worth noting that Williams was forced to exit in the first half due to a sprain, so Grant's looks may have been slightly inflated. That's a trend that could repeat against the Chargers in Week 10 though, if Williams can't return. Per Travis Wingfield of the Dolphins' official site, Grant also now leads the NFL in punt return yards.

Dolphins' Jakeem Grant: Pops for punt return TD
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grant secured one of two targets for 15 yards and notched an 88-yard touchdown on his only punt return in the Dolphins' 28-17 win over the Rams on Sunday. He also returned his sole kickoff for 45 yards.

It was a banner day for Grant in the return game, with his 88-yard score in the second quarter giving the Dolphins a surprising two-touchdown lead. With just 14 receptions and 19 targets through seven games, Grant's fantasy value is significantly higher in formats that count return yards and touchdowns, although the elite speed that allows him to thrive on special teams always gives him theoretical upside as a wideout. He'll look to up his production from scrimmage in a Week 9 interconference showdown against the Cardinals.

Dolphins' Jakeem Grant: Leads WRs versus Jets
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grant secured all four of his targets for 48 yards during Sunday's 24-0 win over the Jets.

Grant led the Dolphins in terms of catches, and his 48 receiving yards were second only to tight end Adam Shaheen's 51. The speedster was also busy on special teams, returning one kickoff (23 yards) and six punts (83), to account for a team-high 154 all-purpose yards. Grant also hauled in one of Tua Tagovailoa's first two NFL completions, when he gained a first down late in the fourth quarter to seal the win for Miami.

Dolphins' Jakeem Grant: Active in Week 5
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grant (illness) is active for Sunday's Week 5 tilt against the 49ers.

The speedster was questionable due to a non-COVID-19 illness late in the week, but this confirms Grant has apparently been able to overcome his ailment. He'll slot into his usual No. 4 receiver role against San Francisco while also presumably continuing to handle both kick and punt returns.

Dolphins' Jakeem Grant: Questionable with illness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grant is listed as questionable for Sunday's game in San Francisco due to a non-COVID-19-related illness, Josh Tolentino of The Athletic reports.

Grant wasn't listed on the Dolphins' injury report to begin the week, but he missed practice Friday with an illness likely related to the bug that's been making its way around the Miami locker room of late. An absence from Grant versus the 49ers would leave Miami without its top depth option behind starting receivers DeVante Parker, Preston Williams and Isaiah Ford. Lynn Bowden and Mack Hollins would be the main candidates to handle the No. 4 receiver job in Grant's stead.

Dolphins' Jakeem Grant: Absent from practice Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grant wasn't spotted on the field during the early portion of Friday's practice, Joe Schad of The Palm Beach Post reports.

The Dolphins haven't revealed whether Grant's absence is due to any sort of health concern, but it's worth noting that the Dolphins have had an illness going around the locker room this week. In the even that Grant were forced to miss any time, Noah Igbinoghene and Preston Williams would likely be in line to fill in for him on kick and punt returns, respectively.

Dolphins' Jakeem Grant: Trio of grabs in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grant brought in three of four targets for 36 yards and returned one punt for 11 yards in the Dolphins' 31-23 loss to the Seahawks on Sunday.

Grant checked in third among Dolphins wideouts in receptions and receiving yardage, trailing DeVante Parker and Isaiah Ford. He was coming off having compiled 107 all-purpose yards in a Week 3 victory against the Jaguars, and although his day wasn't quite as productive Sunday, Grant's catch total equaled a season high while his yardage tally was a new high-water mark in 2020. The speedster will look to build on his numbers in a Week 5 road matchup against the 49ers.

Dolphins' Jakeem Grant: Garners 107 all-purpose yards
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grant hauled in his only target for 19 yards, rushed once for 29 yards, returned two kickoffs for 31 yards and brought back two punts for 28 yards in the Dolphins' 31-13 win over the Jaguars on Thursday.

The speedster was fairly busy due to his multiple responsibilities, but he once again played a minimal role as a receiver. The good news is that Grant has caught all five targets he's seen thus far this season, but those have amounted to just 46 yards. Grant has yet to see his blazing speed translate to game action, as Thursday's 19-yard catch counts as the longest of his season-plus as a pro. He'll look to up his production from scrimmage in a Week 4 home matchup against the Seahawks on Sunday, Oct. 4.

Dolphins' Jakeem Grant: Operates as No. 4 WR in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grant secured his lone target for two yards during Sunday's 33-28 loss to the Bills.

Grant appears to be clearly behind DeVante Parker, Preston Williams and Isaiah Ford for the time being. Tight end Mike Gesicki also figures to regularly operate ahead of Grant. His big-play abilities and usage in the return game provide fair fantasy value in leagues that award points for special-teams yardage, but outside of such formats, Grant doesn't warrant much weekly consideration.

Dolphins' Jakeem Grant: Lifted from injury report
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grant (calf) was removed from the Dolphins' injury report Thursday, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports.

Miami listed Grant as a limited participant in Wednesday's session due to the calf injury. His removal from the report entirely implies that he not only turned in a full workout Thursday but also is at no risk of missing Sunday's game against the Bills. Grant could feature regularly in three-receiver sets Week 2 in the event DeVante Parker (hamstring) -- who was limited in practice for the second straight day Thursday -- is unable to go, but he'll likely share No. 3 wideout duties with Isaiah Ford if the team is at full strength at the position. Per Travis Wingfield of the Dolphins' official site, special teams coordinator Danny Crossman confirmed Wednesday that Grant has earned the right to serve as Miami's top option on kickoff and punt returns, giving the 27-year-old an added boost in fantasy leagues that value return yardage.

Dolphins' Jakeem Grant: Nursing calf injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grant was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice due to a calf injury, Hal Habib of The Palm Beach Post reports.

Grant appears to have picked up a calf injury during Miami's season-opening loss to the Patriots, but there's not yet any reason to worry about his availability for Week 2. In the event that DeVante Parker (hamstring) ends up limited or unavailable during Sunday's game against the Bills, Grant could see a slight uptick in targets.

Dolphins' Jakeem Grant: Three catches in opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grant caught three of four targets for 25 yards during Sunday's 21-11 loss to the Patriots.

Grant, like the rest of Miami's receiving corps, was held in check by the Patriots' secondary for the entire duration of Sunday's contest. Nor did Grant manage to make an impact on special teams, as his only punt return resulted in a loss of three yards. As the No. 3 wideout at best in an unreliable offense, Grant won't warrant fantasy consideration in most formats when he suits up against Buffalo in Week 2.

Dolphins' Jakeem Grant: Avoids injury report
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grant is not on Wednesday's injury report, Hal Habib of the Palm Beach Post reports.

Grant missed some time in late August with a minor undisclosed injury, but he has long since recovered and isn't on the team's injury report heading into Week 1. Look for Grant to play a depth receiver role and return kicks against the Patriots in Week 1.

Dolphins' Jakeem Grant: Back in team drills
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grant (undisclosed) reeled in a 45-yard pass in team drills Friday, Josh Tolentino of The Athletic reports.

Grant missed a couple of practice sessions due to a minor injury, but the 27-year-old is back to competing for the No. 3 wide-receiver role in Miami. His 45-yard reception turned heads coming off an injury, and now the 5-foot-7, 171-pound wideout will spend the rest of training camp holding off Isaiah Ford, Chester Rogers and Gary Jennings for a starting role.

Dolphins' Jakeem Grant: Dealing with minor injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grant did not practice Tuesday due to a minor undisclosed injury, Barry Jackson of the Miami Harold reports.

Grant and Isaiah Ford have spent camp in competition for the No. 3 receiver gig since Allen Hurns and Albert Wilson each decided to opt out of the 2020 campaign. Ford would likely benefit from an uptick in reps in the event that Grant were to miss significant time, but it doesn't appear that his injury will hold him out for long. Rookie seventh-round pick Malcolm Perry has also been handling limited reps out of the slot.

Dolphins' Jakeem Grant: May enter mix for starting job
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grant may be needed in an expanded role after teammates Albert Wilson and Allen Hurns opted out of the 2020 season, Joe Schad of The Palm Beach Post reports.

Grant missed the final six games of 2018 and the final five of 2019, first suffering an Achilles injury and then a high-ankle sprain. He also dealt with a hamstring injury, a shoulder injury and a concussion over the past two years, but when healthy, he typically served as Miami's third or fourth option at wide receiver while also handling kick returns and sometimes punt returns. With Wilson and Hurns out of the picture for the upcoming season, Grant and Isaiah Ford appear to be the top candidates for the No. 3 receiver spot, while DeVante Parker and Preston Williams (knee) look like the top two options. There's even some chance for both Grant and Ford to stay regularly involved, especially if Williams struggles to come back from the ACL tear he suffered last November.

Dolphins' Jakeem Grant: Recovered from ankle injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grant (ankle) recently declared himself healthy, Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports.

Grant was placed on injured reserve after suffering an ankle injury in a Week 12 loss to Cleveland. He finished the season with just 19 catches for 164 yards across 33 targets in 10 games, but he tallied a rushing touchdown and a kick-return score (the fourth special-teams TD of his four-year career). Grant has a four-year, $19.7 million extension kicking in for 2020, so he'll presumably be with the Dolphins for at least one or two more seasons. He should be in the mix for the third or fourth wideout spot during training camp.
