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.

Dolphins' Jakeem Grant: Headed to IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grant (ankle) will be placed on injured reserve Wednesday, Cameron Wolfe of ESPN.com reports.

Grant's injury is a hit to the Dolphins' wideout depth and kick-return unit. Practice squad players Isaiah Ford, Andy Jones and T.J. Rahming are internal options to fill Grant's roster spot. In 10 games this season, Grant caught 19 of his 33 targets for 164 yards and brought back 23 kickoffs for 578 yards -- good for fourth in the NFL -- and a touchdown.

Dolphins' Jakeem Grant: May have high ankle sprain
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grant is believed to be dealing with a high ankle sprain, Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports.

After being carted to the locker room in the first quarter Sunday against the Browns, Grant was seen with a walking boot on his right foot after the 41-24 loss. Per Adam H. Beasley of the Miami Herald, Grant didn't break any bones, but a diagnosis of a high ankle sprain indicates a multi-week absence is in his future. Look for the Dolphins to clarify Grant's health over the next few days.

Dolphins' Jakeem Grant: Wearing walking boot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grant (ankle) was spotted with a walking boot on his right foot following Sunday's 41-24 loss to the Browns, Cameron Wolfe of ESPN.com reports.

Grant was forced out of Sunday's loss to the Browns during the first quarter, and he was unable to retake the field. The depth wideout and return specialist has avoided sustaining any broken bones, according to Adam H. Beasley of the Miami Herald, but a timetable for his recovery remains uncertain at this time. Allen Hurns stands to play an increased role in Miami's receiving corps as long as Grant is unable to play.

Dolphins' Jakeem Grant: Won't return Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grant (ankle) is ruled out to return against the Browns on Sunday, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports.

Grant suffered an ankle injury during the first quarter of Sunday's contest. In his stead, expect Allen Hurns to serve as the No. 3 receiver behind DeVante Parker and Albert Wilson. Grant's absence also is a notable blow to Miami's special teams, as he normally handles both punt and kick return duties.

Dolphins' Jakeem Grant: Exits game with ankle injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grant is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Browns due to an ankle injury, Adam H. Beasley of the Miami Herald reports.

Grant limped off the field under his own power, but he had to be carted to the locker room from the sideline. As long as Grant is unable to retake the field, Marcus Sherels will be a candidate to field kick and punt returns.

Dolphins' Jakeem Grant: Strikes twice in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grant caught all three of his targets for 32 yards and added a seven-yard touchdown run during Sunday's 37-20 loss to Buffalo. He also returned five kickoffs for 198 yards and a touchdown.

The game was getting out of hand late in the first half when Grant took a kickoff from a yard deep in the end zone and cut across the field to turn up the far sideline for a 101-yard touchdown, his first return score of the season. Later, in the opening minute of the fourth quarter, he took a pitch from a wildcat formation and swept out to the right untouched for a seven-yard touchdown, his first offensive score of the season. The fact that Grant can get from Point A to Point B in a hurry is not much of a surprise, but he hasn't really been able to make much of that ability this season with a single-game high of only five touches. His 39 yards of offense Sunday marked his most productive game of the year. It's possible that Miami relies on some trickery, like Sunday's wildcat run, to get Grant the ball more often, but he otherwise holds little value Sunday against Cleveland's sixth-ranked pass defense.

Dolphins' Jakeem Grant: Barely involved in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grant caught both targets for 15 yards during Sunday's 16-12 win over the Colts.

Grant appeared to have a shot at an expanded role in Miami's offense with Preston Williams (knee) on injured reserve, but he concluded Sunday's win with another mundane receiving line. In leagues that don't reward fantasy points for return yards, Grant doesn't warrant roster consideration.

Dolphins' Jakeem Grant: Could see increased role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grant is a candidate to play an increased role in Miami's aerial attack with Preston Williams (knee) out for the season, Cameron Wolfe of ESPN.com reports.

Grant appears set to compete with Allen Hurns for the No. 3 wide receiver role in Miami going forward. DeVante Parker, Albert Wilson and Mike Gesicki likely will serve as the top options in Miami's passing game, but Grant's big-play ability could make him an intriguing stash in the event that he receives a larger target share down the stretch.

Dolphins' Jakeem Grant: Hauls in two passes
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grant caught two of three targets for 32 yards during Monday's 27-14 loss to Pittsburgh.

Grant helped keep the Dolphins alive early in the fourth quarter when, down by 10 and facing a third and long, he found a spot along the sideline and snagged a 15-yard pass from a scrambling Ryan Fitzpatrick for the first down. As Miami's luck would have it, the team lost a fumble on the very next play. Grant got a nice contract in the offseason and while a big part of his value is as a returner, the Dolphins have not found many ways to get him the ball in an otherwise feeble offense. Monday's 32 yards marked a season high, and he's on pace for his smallest offensive output since his rookie season.

Dolphins' Jakeem Grant: Minimal involvement in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grant was not targeted during Sunday's loss to the Bills.

Grant played seven snaps on offense. He also played seven snaps on special teams but didn't attempt either a kick or punt return. At this point in time, Grant doesn't appear to be operating as more than a depth receiver in Miami's offense.

Dolphins' Jakeem Grant: Listed as active Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grant (hamstring) is listed as active Sunday's game against the Bills.

Grant's return should provide the Dolphins return game with a nice boost, but with DeVante Parker, Preston Williams and Albert Wilson also in the team's wide receiver mix, Grant isn't a high-percentage fantasy play at this stage of the season.

October 18, 2019 02:48 PM
Dolphins' Jakeem Grant: Draws questionable tag
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grant (hamstring) is officially listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Bills, Hal Habib of The Palm Beach Post reports.

Grant was a limited participant in practice all week. The speedy wideout missed Week 6 versus the Redskins, and he isn't a lock to suit up for Sunday's divisional tilt. If Grant were forced to miss any more time, Kenyan Drake would serve as Miami's top kick returner while Preston Williams would take back punts.

Dolphins' Jakeem Grant: Limited in practice again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grant (hamstring) was a limited participant in Thursday's practice, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports.

Grant sat out Week 6 against the Redskins despite practicing in a limited fashion all week, and he's yet to take a tangible step forward in his recovery. His availability for Sunday's tilt against the Bills will likely be determined based on what he's able to do in Friday's practice. If Grant is able to suit up, he'll serve as Miami's top kick and punt returner.

Dolphins' Jakeem Grant: Starts week limited
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grant (hamstring) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports.

Grant managed a trio of limited practices last week, but he was ultimately inactive Sunday versus the Redskins. The speedy wideout could need to upgrade to a full practice participant Thursday and/or Friday in order to suit up Week 7.

Dolphins' Jakeem Grant: Won't play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grant (hamstring) is inactive for Sunday's game against Washington.

With Grant out, Albert Wilson (in his first action since Week 1) is a candidate to serve as the Dolphins' No. 3 option at wide receiver in Week 6, working alongside DeVante Parker and Preston Williams.

October 13, 2019 09:04 AM
Dolphins' Jakeem Grant: Expected to sit out Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grant (hamstring), who is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Redskins, isn't expected to play, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Rapoport notes that the Dolphins are optimistic Grant will be ready to go Week 7 versus the Bills, so the wideout's hamstring injury apparently isn't being viewed as a long-term concern. With Grant on track to sit out Sunday, however, Miami will likely turn to either Albert Wilson -- who is questionable with a calf injury -- or Allen Hurns as its main No. 3 option at receiver after DeVante Parker and Preston Williams.

Dolphins' Jakeem Grant: Questionable for Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grant (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Sunday's contest versus the Redskins, Safid Deen of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.

The Dolphins won't make a final decision on Grant's availability until about 90 minutes before Sunday's 1:00 p.m. ET kickoff, but Adam H. Beasley of the Miami Herald reported Thursday that he's unlikely to play this weekend. Meanwhile, fellow wide receiver Albert Wilson (calf/hip) also is questionable, leaving DeVante Parker and Preston Williams as the team's top healthy options at the position right now.

Dolphins' Jakeem Grant: Unlikely for Week 6
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grant (hamstring) is not expected to suit up Sunday against the Redskins, Adam H. Beasley of the Miami Herald reports.

Grant has been limited in practice for two consecutive days, but he nonetheless doesn't appear ready to retake the field. As long as Grant is unable to go, the Dolphins will need to find another option to handle kick and punt returns.

October 9, 2019 05:32 PM
Dolphins' Jakeem Grant: Limited in practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grant (hamstring) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice.

Grant wasn't able to practice to begin the week, so his limited participation Wednesday is a positive step. He'll have two more opportunities to upgrade to full participation ahead of Sunday's tilt with Washington. With Albert Wilson (hip/calf) having yet to shake off his own injury, Grant could conceivably serve as the No. 3 wideout in Miami's offense if healthy.
