Dolphins' A.J. Derby: Scores touchdown in Week 2 win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Derby hauled in one of his two targets for a 19-yard touchdown reception Sunday in the Dolphins' 20-12 win over the Jets.

Derby and Mike Gesicki essentially split the playing time at tight end down the middle, with the former logging 34 offensive snaps to the rookie's 33. Despite the even distribution, it was Derby who was the more active pass catcher of the two, as Gesicki didn't draw a single target in the contest. Though Derby is listed as the top tight end on the Dolphins' unofficial depth chart, he'll probably need to take on a larger portion of the snaps and draw more targets before becoming an appealing option in most fantasy leagues.

Dolphins' A.J. Derby: Back at practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Derby rejoined the Dolphins for practice Monday, Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports.

Derby, who seems to have recovered from his foot issue, was unable to fully participate in the previous week of practices. In the 26-year-old's absence, rookie Mike Gesicki received the larger portion of first-team reps and has consistently impressed as a pass catcher. Now healthy, Derby will hope to recover lost ground in the team's tight end battle.

Dolphins' A.J. Derby: Considered day-to-day
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Derby (foot) is not practicing Wednesday and is considered day-to-day, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports.

Though Derby's injury doesn't seem serious, time spent sidelined during training camp doesn't help the tight end's chances of securing a roster spot. The 26-year-old faces competition from rookies Mike Gesicki and Durham Smythe, in addition to veteran blocking specialist MarQueis Gray. Derby logged snaps with the first-team offense prior to his injury, and will attempt to get healthy and pick up where he left off.

Dolphins' A.J. Derby: Misses practice with injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Derby is dealing with a foot injury and missed Sunday's training camp session as a result, Jason Lieser of the Palm Beach Post reports.

The severity of Derby's foot issue doesn't appear to be serious at this point, but involves a brief hiccup in his quest for the No. 1 spot at tight end against Mike Gesicki and MarQueis Gray.

Dolphins' A.J. Derby: Getting run with starters
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Derby and MarQueis Gray were both on the field for the first snap of training camp with the first-string offense, Barry Jackson of The Miami Herald reports.

Formations with multiple tight ends probably won't be a huge part of Miami's offense, as head coach Adam Gase has long favored three-wide sets and currently has at least four receivers who warrant significant playing time. Despite their slotting on the first day of camp, Derby and Gray may ultimately end up competing for one roster spot, considering rookies Mike Gesicki and Durham Smythe are locks to make the team. Gesicki is probably the only one of the bunch with enough of a ceiling to warrant fantasy consideration.
