Gesicki was not targeted during Miami's 21-17 win over the Bills.
Gesicki did not record a single offensive statistic during Miami's Week 13 victory. The rookie tight end has only been targeted three times throughout the Dolphins' last four games, and will remain off the fantasy radar heading into Sunday's divisional tilt against the Patriots.
Gesicki brought in his only target for five yards and fumbled once during Miami's 27-24 loss to the Colts on Sunday.
Gesicki fumbled late in the second quarter, ending Miami's attempt at a two-minute drill on the first play of the drive. The rookie second-round pick has gone three straight games without recording more than one catch, and has surpassed 50 receiving yards just once this season. Gesicki remains an intriguing dynasty prospect, but is unlikely to achieve much fantasy relevance this year.
Gesicki brought in his only target during Sunday's 31-12 loss to the Packers.
Gesicki saw less offensive snaps (20) than fellow tight ends A.J. Derby and Nick O'Leary, and received only one target for the second straight week. It's hard to imagine the rookie second-round pick putting up big numbers while splitting snaps in Miami's mediocre passing offense, but Gesicki remains a key part of the Dolphins' plans for the future.
Gesicki did not catch his only target during Sunday's 13-6 win over the Jets.
Gesicki was the target of quarterback Brock Osweiler's only pass to the tight end position Week 9, but he failed to reel the ball in. The rookie has not put up a goose egg since Week 2, also a contest against the Jets, during which he was not targeted. Gesicki will look to bounce back during Miami's tilt against Green Bay on Sunday, in which the Dolphins' passing offense may see more volume.
Gesicki (shoulder) is listed as active for Thursday night's game against the Texans.
Meanwhile, A.J. Derby (foot) is inactive, which sets the stage for Gesicki and Nick O'Leary to lead the Dolphins' Week 8 tight end corps. Gesicki, who the team took 42nd overall in April's NFL Draft, caught all three of his targets for a season-high 44 yards this past Sunday against the Lions and his involvement in the Miami passing game could continue to expand, with wideouts Albert Wilson (hip/IR) and Kenny Stills (groin) both sidelined Thursday night.
