Dolphins' Durham Smythe: Nabs second TD of season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smythe caught both of his targets for nine yards and a touchdown during Sunday's 29-21 win over the Chargers.

Smythe doesn't see targets with the same regularity as Mike Gesicki, and Adam Shaheen has shown superior deep and intermediate abilities, but the second-year pro is establishing himself as an option in the red zone. He'll look to continue establishing chemistry with Tua Tagovailoa at Denver in Week 11.

Dolphins' Durham Smythe: Good to go Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smythe (concussion) is active for Sunday's game against the Chargers.

The 25-year-old suffered the concussion last week against the Cardinals, but he cleared the concussion protocol in time for Sunday's contest. Smythe should fill his usual role as Miami's No. 2 tight end.

Dolphins' Durham Smythe: Questionable after full practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smythe (concussion) is officially listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Chargers.

Smythe's trending in the right direction, as he practiced fully Friday following limited sessions Wednesday and Thursday. It's unclear if Smythe has cleared the concussion protocol yet, but he'll have to do so in order to have any chance of playing Sunday. Adam Shaheen would see some extra snaps behind Mike Gesicki if Smythe can't go on game day.

Dolphins' Durham Smythe: Listed as limited Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smythe (concussion) is listed as a limited participant on Wednesday's injury report, Adam H. Beasley of the Miami Herald reports.

The Dolphins only hosted a walk-through Wednesday, so Smythe's "limited" listing is just an estimation of what he would have done in a full practice. Nonetheless, it serves as an indication that the backup tight end is progressing through the concussion protocol.

Dolphins' Durham Smythe: Won't return Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smythe (concussion) is ruled out to return to Sunday's game against the Cardinals, Cameron Wolfe of ESPN.com reports.

Smythe has been confirmed to have sustained a concussion, so he'll now enter the league's five-step protocol for head injuries. He caught his only target for 19 yards before being forced out. Mike Gesicki and Adam Shaheen are the Dolphins' remaining healthy tight ends.

Dolphins' Durham Smythe: Being evaluated for concussion
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smythe is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Cardinals and will be evaluated for a concussion.

Smythe won't be eligible to return Sunday if he indeed enters the concussion protocol. The Dolphins are already operating without Preston Williams (knee), Myles Gaskin (knee) and Matt Breida (hamstring), so losing Smythe would further detract from an already undermanned skill-position group.

Dolphins' Durham Smythe: Hauls in two passes
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smythe caught both his targets for 16 yards during Sunday's 28-17 win over the Rams.

Both of Smythe's grabs went for eight yards, and he actually led Miami's tight end group in receiving on a day when Tua Tagovailoa threw for just 93 yards. Smythe also had more snaps than either Mike Gesicki or Adam Shaheen, though he mostly worked as a blocker.

Dolphins' Durham Smythe: Scores first touchdown of career
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smythe secured one of two targets for a four-yard touchdown during Sunday's 24-0 win over the Jets.

Smythe and fellow backup tight end Adam Shaheen (3-51-1) both got involved enough on offense to score Sunday, while Mike Gesicki was held without a catch on two targets. It's encouraging to see Smythe log a productive day after having missed Week 5 due to a knee injury, but he usually takes too large a percentage of his snaps as a blocker to warrant real fantasy consideration.

Dolphins' Durham Smythe: All clear Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smythe (knee) is officially active for Sunday's game against the Dolphins, Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports.

Smythe missed last week's win over the 49ers and only practiced in limited fashion through the week, so the fact that he's back playing is a positive sign. Now healthy, the Notre Dame product is expected to reprise his usual role as the No. 2 tight end option behind Mike Gesicki.

Dolphins' Durham Smythe: Questionable to face Jets
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smythe (knee) is officially listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Jets.

Smythe missed Week 5's contest against the 49ers, but he's now coming off three straight limited practice sessions. If he's able to gain clearance versus New York, Smythe stands to reprise his usual role as the top backup to Mike Gesicki.

Dolphins' Durham Smythe: Out for Week 5
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smythe (knee) is ruled out for Sunday's game against the 49res, Josh Tolentino of The Athletic reports.

Smythe wasn't able to practice in any capacity this week, so his lack of availability doesn't come as much of a surprise. In his stead, Adam Shaheen will take over as Miami's main backup tight end behind Mike Gesicki.

Dolphins' Durham Smythe: Misses practice with knee injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smythe (knee) didn't practice Wednesday, Josh Tolentino of The Athletic reports.

Miami's backup tight end is coming off a solid two-catch, 30-yard performance against the Seahawks in Week 4, but he may have picked up a knee injury along the way in that one. It's also possible that this was just a routine day off, and Smythe's practice participation in the coming days should help us form a better idea of his status for Sunday's trip to San Francisco.

Dolphins' Durham Smythe: Involved in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smythe caught two of three targets for 30 yards during Sunday's 31-23 loss to the Seahawks.

Smythe got some opportunities Sunday as Seattle's defensive coverage honed in on limiting Mike Gesicki (one catch on three targets). The tight end also fielded one five-yard kickoff return, an unusual role in which the Dolphins occasionally deploy Smythe. As usual, though, the majority of Smythe's 29 offensive snaps (41 percent) came as a blocker.

Dolphins' Durham Smythe: Not targeted Week 1
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smythe was not targeted during Sunday's divisional loss to the Patriots.

Smythe, despite being listed as the starter on Miami's first unofficial depth chart of the year, only handled 13 offensive snaps (21 percent) compared to Mike Gesicki's 45 snaps (73 percent). Additionally, Gesicki accounted for all five of the targets that went to Miami's tight end position. Smythe could see more workload as a blocker as the season continues, particularly if Miami's ground game can get going, but his fantasy floor essentially remains nonexistent.

Dolphins' Durham Smythe: Listed atop depth chart
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Miami listed Smythe as its top tight end on the unofficial depth chart the team released Monday, Joe Schad of The Palm Beach Post reports.

Miami's decision to list Smythe as the No. 1 option on the depth chart perhaps hints that new offensive coordinator is placing a greater emphasis on blocking from the tight-end position. If that's indeed the case, it would spell bad news for Mike Gesicki, who broke out late in 2019 to finish his second season with 51 receptions for 570 yards and five touchdowns. While Gesicki remains entrenched as Miami's clear top pass-catching tight end, he could notice a decline in his overall snap count if the Dolphins choose to feature Smythe more in less obvious passing scenarios. Conversely, Smythe could see a boost in his overall target total simply by being on the field more often, but he's still unlikely to see nearly enough volume to emerge as a viable fantasy option.

Dolphins' Durham Smythe: One catch in finale
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smythe secured one of three targets for eight yards during Week 17's win over the Patriots.

Smythe once again served as the No. 2 tight end behind Mike Gesicki during Miami's regular-season finale, doing most of his damage as a blocker. The second-year pro played in all 16 games during the 2019 season, during which he caught seven of 14 targets for 65 yards. He stands to reprise a similar role behind Gesicki in 2020.

Dolphins' Durham Smythe: Practices without limitations
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smythe (quadriceps) was a full participant in Thursday's practice, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports.

Smythe was limited in practice to begin the week, but he now looks back to full health. He'll play his usual role behind starter Mike Gesicki in Miami's tight end corps Week 17.

December 25, 2019 04:28 PM
Dolphins' Durham Smythe: Deemed limited in practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smythe (quadriceps) was credited with a limited practice Wednesday, Safid Deen of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.

Smythe must have picked up the injury in Sunday's win over the Bengals, yet it wouldn't have sidelined him completely if the Dolphins had actually held practice Wednesday. The 24-year-old's status bears monitoring over the course of the week.

Dolphins' Durham Smythe: Upgrades to full practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smythe (knee/elbow) was a full participant in Thursday's practice.

Smythe was limited during Wednesday's practice due to knee and elbow injuries, and he's already resumed participating without limitations. The second-year pro looks primed for his usual depth role against the Bills on Sunday.

Dolphins' Durham Smythe: Nursing two injuries
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smythe (knee/elbow) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports.

It's never good to have multiple injuries in tow, but it's a positive sign that Smythe still got on the practice field. The second-year tight end is used mainly in a blocking role, as he has run a route on 46.3 percent of his snaps. His status for Sunday's game against the Bills doesn't appear to be in jeopardy yet, but Chandler Cox and Clive Walford are waiting in the wings in case Smythe can't go.
