Dolphins' Mike Gesicki: Hauls in clutch TD in finale
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gesicki secured four of seven targets for 34 yards and one touchdown during Sunday's 27-24 win over the Patriots.

Gesicki was held in check for the majority of Sunday's upset win, but he showed up with just 24 seconds remaining in the fourth quarter by beating safety Patrick Chung to reel in a game-winning touchdown. After being held without a score in his rookie season, Gesicki caught 51 of 89 targets for 570 yards and five touchdowns across 16 games this year. The Dolphins will work to further develop the ultra-athletic Penn State product into a key part of their passing game in 2020.

Dolphins' Mike Gesicki: First career two-touchdown day
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gesicki secured six of 12 targets for 82 yards and two touchdowns in the Dolphins' 38-35 overtime win against the Bengals on Sunday.

The second-year tight end was clicking with quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick on Sunday, recording scoring grabs of 31 and 13 yards in the second and third quarters, respectively. Gesicki has come to life after a mostly moribund first half of the season, as he's brought in 32 of 57 targets for 383 yards and four touchdowns over his last eight games. Gesicki will look to put a fitting stamp on his strong second half in a tough matchup against the Patriots in Week 17.

Dolphins' Mike Gesicki: Four catches in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gesicki caught four of eight targets for 47 yards in Sunday's 36-20 loss to the Giants.

Gesicki has cooled down after a two-game touchdown streak, totaling five catches for 53 yards in two games since. The second-year tight end has tantalizing physical gifts, but he's still trying to find consistency. Playing for a 3-11 Dolphins team doesn't help in that regard, though a prime matchup awaits Week 16 with the 1-13 Bengals coming to town.

Dolphins' Mike Gesicki: Falls off against Jets
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gesicki was only able to bring in one of five targets for a gain of six yards during Sunday's 22-21 loss to the Jets.

Gesicki had a nice two-game run prior to Sunday's outing, totaling 107 yards and two touchdowns, but he was unable to keep up that pace against a Jets defense that's been stingy against tight ends all season. If there is a silver lining to Sunday's clunker, it's that Gesicki was targeted in the red zone three times, all from inside the 10-yard line, after seeing just four total red-zone targets coming into the game. He'll look to convert some of those into touchdowns Sunday against the Giants' 26th-ranked pass defense.

Dolphins' Mike Gesicki: Scores for second straight game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gesicki caught five of seven targets for 79 yards and a touchdown during Sunday's 37-31 win against the Eagles.

The second-year tight end has seemingly opened the floodgates in the TD department, as he's now scored in consecutive weeks after failing to reach the end zone during his first 26 regular-season games. He's been more highly involved than ever over the past two weeks, commanding a combined 14 targets against the Browns and Eagles after garnering just 4.3 targets per game between Weeks 1 and 11. Gesicki is operating within a Dolphins offense that has exceeded 24 points in three of its past five outings after failing to reach that mark once Weeks 1 through 8. Week 14 brings a tough matchup with a Jets defense that has allowed just 48 receptions and two touchdowns to the tight end position all year.

Dolphins' Mike Gesicki: Notches first career TD in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gesicki secured three of seven targets for 28 yards and a touchdown in the Dolphins' 41-24 loss to the Browns on Sunday.

The second-year tight end finally broke the scoring ice in his career Sunday, bringing in an 11-yard touchdown toss from Ryan Fitzpatrick early in the third quarter for the Dolphins' first touchdown of the game. Gesicki came into the NFL a season ago with a reputation as an above-average pass-catching tight end, but the Dolphins' quarterback issues have played a large part in the Penn State product's underwhelming numbers overall. Gesicki does seem to be building some momentum with at least three catches in four straight contests and will look to keep that streak going versus the Eagles in Week 13.

Dolphins' Mike Gesicki: Held in check
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gesicki caught four of six passes for 18 total yards during Sunday's 37-20 loss to the Bills.

Gesicki was targeted six times for the third consecutive contest Sunday, but -- unlike at other points this season -- he was unable to make the defense pay downfield. The sophomore's stock is rising since there is an obvious concerted effort to get him the ball, but he's been too inconsistent to rely on with just two games of over 50 yards receiving and no scores this season. It'd be a surprise if he much of a step forward against a very good Cleveland pass defense Sunday.

Dolphins' Mike Gesicki: Takes step back
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gesicki hauled in three of his six targets for 28 yards in the team's Week 10 win over the Colts.

Gesicki finished second on the team with six targets but failed to work downfield. His longest reception went for just 12 yards, but his performance was undone by a lost fumble on the team's opening drive. He was also responsible for one of Ryan Fitzpatrick's interceptions when he allowed Darius Leonard to wrestle the ball out of his hands. Gesicki's role in the Dolphins' offense appears set, though his ability to turn that into production remains unsteady.

Dolphins' Mike Gesicki: Career game as team finally wins
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gesicki caught all six of his targets for 95 yards in Sunday's 26-18 win over the Jets.

Gesicki delivered career highs in both catches and yards. The 2018 second-rounder is still looking for his first career touchdown, but there's still untapped upside in Gesicki, whose tremendous physical traits made scouts take notice at the 2018 combine. If he can build on this performance and deliver a strong second half to his sophomore season, Gesicki would quickly turn into an intriguing sleeper ahead of the 2020 campaign, when Miami will hopefully have much more competent quarterback play.

Dolphins' Mike Gesicki: Grabs two passes in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gesicki caught two of three targets for 10 yards during Monday's 27-14 loss to the Steelers.

Monday's outing marked the third time in Gesicki's last five games that he was held to 15 or fewer yards. He has just one 50-yard game this season and has yet to score a touchdown. For all the accolades the former Penn State product earned as an athletic specimen ahead of the 2018 draft, he's struggled to establish himself on a team that isn't exactly full of top-notch weapons. Though Gesicki's a good red-zone target in theory, just two of his 25 targets this season have come inside the 20. Don't expect much of a change Sunday, even against a struggling Jets squad.

Dolphins' Mike Gesicki: Makes impact in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gesicki caught all four of his targets for 41 yards during Sunday's loss to the Bills.

Gesicki now has logged two consecutive solid performances, having caught three passes for a career-high 51 yards Week 6. While the second-year pro's production isn't yet at a level that would have managers consider him as a weekly fantasy option, his 6-foot-6, 250-pound frame could eventually make him a quality red-zone threat.

Dolphins' Mike Gesicki: Career-high receiving yards
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gesicki caught three of seven targets for 51 yards in Sunday's 17-16 loss to Washington.

Gesicki posted the highest receiving yardage total of his young career during the Week 6 loss, although his catch rate left something to be desired. The Dolphins stand to continue giving Gesicki ample opportunities as the season continues, in order to further his development as an aerial weapon, but he nonetheless remains difficult to rely on for fantasy production. The second-year pro has a tough matchup against the Bills coming up during Week 7.

Dolphins' Mike Gesicki: Not targeted versus Chargers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gesicki was not targeted during Sunday's 30-10 loss to the Chargers.

Gesicki didn't factor into the Dolphins' plans on offense Week 4. Since being targeted six times Week 1, Gesicki has only received five targets across the last three contests. With the Dolphins on bye this week, the second-year tight end is safe to leave on waivers in all but the deepest of leagues.

Dolphins' Mike Gesicki: Held to nine yards versus Dallas
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gesicki caught all three targets for nine yards during Sunday's 31-6 loss to the Cowboys.

Gesicki has only notched six catches for 51 yards without a touchdown through three games. The second-year tight end remains off the fantasy radar in most formats, though he could see increased targets Week 4 versus the Chargers with Albert Wilson (calf/hip) and Allen Hurns (concussion) both nursing injuries.

Dolphins' Mike Gesicki: One catch in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gesicki caught one of two targets for 11 yards in Sunday's 43-0 loss to the Patriots.

Gesicki's lack of Week 2 production was due in part to the Dolphins offense struggling as a whole, though it's still not encouraging to see the second-year tight end fail to draw notable targets even with Albert Wilson (calf/hip) sidelined. DeVante Parker, Preston Williams, Jakeem Grant, Kenyan Drake and Kalen Ballage all saw higher target volume than Gesicki during Sunday's loss. Gesicki isn't on the fantasy radar as a week-to-week contributor.

Dolphins' Mike Gesicki: Inefficient in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gesicki brought in two of six targets for 31 yards during Sunday's 59-10 loss to Baltimore.

Gesicki tied his second-highest career mark for receiving yards in a game but nonetheless failed to make a significant impact. The second-year tight end struggled with drops and hauling in errant throws from Josh Rosen and Ryan Fitzpatrick, and he still did not look like an asset as a blocker. Expect Gesicki to continue receiving ample opportunity as he works to make use of his unique athleticism, but his fantasy impact will remain capped unless Miami's offense improves as a whole.

Dolphins' Mike Gesicki: Makes clutch catch
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gesicki caught all three of his targets for 59 total yards during Thursday's 22-7 win over the Jaguars.

Gesicki made the most of his opportunities Thursday, kickstarting the Miami offense with a 28-yard catch-and-run to set up the first of two second-quarter field goals and then slipping behind his defender for a 29-yard catch downfield on the way to Miami's touchdown drive to open the second half. The Dolphins are not short on potential at receiver, but Gesicki offers some unique athleticism at tight end and should play an intriguing role no matter who is throwing him passes. Offensive coordinator Chad O'Shea, who has spent the past decade in New England, probably has an idea or two on how to use a tight end of Gesicki's skill set.

Dolphins' Mike Gesicki: Nabs two passes
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gesicki caught two of three targets for 14 yards during Friday's 16-14 loss to Tampa Bay.

Gesicki's three targets came during a four-play span over two drives in the first half in which the Dolphins were clearly trying to get the sophomore tight end more involved. Lack of clarity at quarterback clearly hampers Gesicki and his fellow targets, but the pairing between Gesicki and the coaching staff that helped oversea Rob Gronkowski's peak remains tantalizing. As Gesicki grows in the offense, which he is reportedly doing already, expect for his unique athleticism to shine through.

Dolphins' Mike Gesicki: One catch against Falcons
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gesicki caught one of his two targets, accounting for six receiving yards during Thursday's 34-27 win against the Falcons.

Gesicki was on the receiving end of Ryan Fitzpatrick's first pass attempt of the season, but didn't have any further offensive involvement after that point, and was soon relieved by backup Clive Walford. In a fantasy landscape with few elite options at tight end, the second-year man out of Penn State could be worth a late-round flier in deeper leagues. The Dolphins did, after all, invest an early second-round draft choice in Gesicki just 14 months ago, after he amassed 14 receiving scores over his final two seasons with the Nittany Lions.

Dolphins' Mike Gesicki: Coming on in camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gesicki impressed as a pass catcher in practice Tuesday, Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports.

Gesicki drew mixed reviews early in training camp but now appears to have gained some momentum. The second-year player hauled in at least one touchdown Tuesday among his numerous catches, while his main threat for reps at tight end, Dwayne Allen (knee), participated in his first set of 11-on-11 drills. The opportunity is there for Gesicki to earn himself a three-down role in Miami if he logs an impressive preseason, but consistently flashing in the passing game and demonstrating progress as a blocker will be essential to his efforts to secure playing time.
