Dolphins' Mike Gesicki: Lands on COVID list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gesicki (undisclosed) was placed on the COVID-19 list Sunday.

Co-offensive coordinator and tight ends coach George Godsey tested positive for the virus, per Adam Schefter of ESPN, resulting in Gesicki, Cethan Carter and Adam Shaheen landing on the COVID list as apparent close contacts. Gesicki could make a relatively quick return to the field as long as he continues to test negative for the virus. In the meantime, Durham Smythe and Hunter Long should operate as Miami's top tight ends.

Dolphins' Mike Gesicki: Dealing with injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gesicki (undisclosed) isn't practicing Saturday for medical reasons, Hal Habib of The Palm Beach Post reports.

Details about Gesicki's injury remain unknown at this point, but more details will likely surface in the coming days. The starting tight end will look to get healthy before Miami kicks off preseason play Aug. 14 against the Bears.

Dolphins' Mike Gesicki: Showing chemistry with Tua
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gesicki has been QB Tua Tagoviloa's "go-to receiver" early in camp, Armando Salguero of The Miami Herald reports.

The report also notes that the young QB has thrown a lot of passes to running backs, in part because veteran wide receivers DeVante Parker, Will Fuller and Preston Williams are out with injuries. Gesicki gets a nice opportunity to build chemistry with Tagovailoa, but further down the line, the tight end could face tough competition for targets from a deep WR group that added Fuller and sixth overall pick Jaylen Waddle in the offseason. Gesicki is in the fourth and final year of his rookie contract, coming off a 2020 campaign with career highs for catches (53), yards (703) and TDs (six), though he actually saw four fewer targets (85) than in 2019.

Dolphins' Mike Gesicki: Five catches to end solid season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gesicki caught five of 10 targets for 47 yards during Sunday's 56-26 loss to the Bills.

Gesicki drew his third-highest target total of the season during Sunday's blowout divisional loss, but he wasn't able to do much with his volume on a day when Tua Tagovailoa struggled mightily. The 25-year-old tight end will benefit from a full offseason to build up additional chemistry with Tagovailoa, as Gesicki is no doubt primed to return as one of Miami's pivotal offensive weapons in 2021. Through 15 appearances in 2020, Gesicki notched career-high marks in catches (53), yards (703) and touchdowns (six) while drawing 85 targets.

Dolphins' Mike Gesicki: Seven targets in narrow win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gesicki secured four of seven targets for 54 yards during Saturday's 26-25 win over the Raiders.

Gesicki returned to action after just a one-game absence due to a shoulder injury, and he immediately returned to his role as Miami's top tight end. He came in second only to Myles Gaskin in terms of receiving with DeVante Parker (hamstring) sidelined, while Adam Shaheen and Durham Smythe combined for just three targets. If Parker were to miss Week 17's divisional matchup against the Bills as well, Gesicki would once again stand to see an uptick in targets (and perhaps red-zone looks).

Dolphins' Mike Gesicki: Returns to action Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gesicki (shoulder) is listed as active Saturday in Las Vegas.

Gesicki injured his right shoulder Week 14 and missed one game as a result, but now that he's back in action he'll look to extend his TD streak to four games against a Raiders defense that has allowed the 14th-most touchdown passes (24) this season.

Dolphins' Mike Gesicki: Listed as questionable
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gesicki (shoulder) is listed as questionable for Saturday's game against the Raiders after being listed as a limited practice participant this week.

Gesicki logged back-to-back limited sessions Thursday and Friday last week before being made inactive this past Sunday against the Patriots. If he's limited or out Saturday night, Durham Smythe and Adam Shaheen once again would be in line for added tight end work Week 16.

Dolphins' Mike Gesicki: Limited again Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gesicki (shoulder) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice, Joe Schad of The Palm Beach Post reports.

Practicing in a limited capacity wasn't enough for Gesicki to get clearance to play Week 15 against the Patriots, so his status for Saturday's road game against the Raiders remains murky. The tight end may need to upgrade to a full session Thursday in order to guarantee his availability for the contest. Durham Smythe and Adam Shaheen will be in line for increased roles again if Gesicki can't go.

Dolphins' Mike Gesicki: Starts week with limited practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gesicki (shoulder) was listed as a limited participant at Tuesday's practice, Adam Caplan of SiriusXM NFL Radio reports.

Gesicki closed Week 15 with back-to-back limited practices, but it wasn't enough for him to gain clearance ahead of Sunday's loss to the Patriots. While it's at least an encouraging sign Gesicki was able to maintain that level of practice activity to begin Week 16, he'll presumably need to upgrade to full participation by Thursday to avoid taking an injury designation into Saturday's game in Las Vegas. While Gesicki was sidelined Week 15, Durham Smythe (five catches for 40 yards) and Adam Shaheen (one catch for 15 yards) split the reps at tight end.

Dolphins' Mike Gesicki: Inactive Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gesicki (shoulder) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Patriots.

With Gesicki inactive, Adam Shaheen and Durham Smythe are in line to handle added tight end snaps Sunday, though neither of the two profile as high-percentage fantasy lineup options in Week 15.

Dolphins' Mike Gesicki: Has chance to play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gesicki (shoulder), who is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Patriots, will work out prior to the contest before a call on his status is made, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

While there was previously some pessimism about the tight end's availability, Rapoport suggests that Gesicki "improved enough during the week to have a real chance of playing" Week 15. The Dolphins kick off at 1:00 p.m. ET, so those considering Gesicki in their fantasy lineups will gain clarity on his status prior to the first wave of games Sunday.

Dolphins' Mike Gesicki: Officially questionable
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gesicki (shoulder) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against New England, Safid Deen of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.

According to Joe Schad of The Palm Beach Post, Gesicki turned in a limited practice Friday, marking the second straight day he was able to get in some on-field work. While Gesicki appears to be doing everything he can to play this weekend, a final word on the athletic tight end's status could realistically come down to a game-time decision. Adam Shaheen and Durham Smythe will handle expanded roles if Gesicki can't play.

Dolphins' Mike Gesicki: Listed as limited Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gesicki (shoulder) was listed as limited in Thursday's walk-through practice, Cameron Wolfe of ESPN.com reports.

While Gesicki's listed upgrade is a positive indicator, it remains to be seen if he'll be cleared to play Sunday against the Patriots. Added clarity on his Week 15 status will arrive no later than Friday, but if he's unable to suit up this weekend, Adam Shaheen and Durham Smythe would see expanded duties in Miami's offense Sunday.

Dolphins' Mike Gesicki: Misses practice, as expected
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gesicki (shoulder) didn't practice Wednesday, Adam H. Beasley of the Miami Herald reports.

Gesicki is expected to miss time due to the shoulder injury he picked up in the fourth quarter of last weekend's loss to the Chiefs, so it doesn't come as any sort of surprise to see him sitting out practice to begin Week 15. The results of Gesicki's recent MRI could be known within the next few days, but all signs currently point to him sitting out Sunday's game against the Patriots. If that's the case, Adam Shaheen and Durham Smythe would likely split work at tight end.

Dolphins' Mike Gesicki: Expected to miss time, pending MRI
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Dolphins fear Gesicki (shoulder) will miss at least one game, Armando Salguero of The Miami Herald reports.

Gesicki was injured in the fourth quarter of Sunday's 33-27 loss to the Chiefs, finishing with five catches for 65 yards and two touchdowns. He appeared to be dealing with a lot of pain when he came off the field, and he wasn't able to re-enter the game. An MRI scheduled for Monday should give the Dolphins a better idea of how much time Gesicki will miss.

Dolphins' Mike Gesicki: Hurts shoulder Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gesicki exited Sunday's game against the Chiefs with an apparent right shoulder injury, Hal Habib of The Palm Beach Post reports.

Gesicki was tackled awkwardly near the sidelines, and he went down in clear pain before going directly to the locker room. Before his departure, Gesicki caught five passes for 65 yards and two touchdowns. It's yet another hit to the Dolphins' receiving weapons, as both DeVante Parker and Jakeem Grant exited with leg injuries Sunday.

Dolphins' Mike Gesicki: High-volume day in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gesicki brought in nine of 11 targets for 88 yards and a touchdown in the Dolphins' 19-7 win over the Bengals on Sunday.

The third-year tight end led the Dolphins in receptions, receiving yards and targets on the afternoon, with his catch tally also serving as a season high. Gesicki's fourth touchdown of the season -- his second in as many games -- capped off Miami's first second-half drive and was an ideal bonus to what was already a very strong effort for the Penn State product in both seasonal and daily PPR formats. Gesicki may be leaned on heavily once again in a Week 14 showdown against the Chiefs that figures to feature an aggressive offensive game plan for coach Brian Flores' squad.

Dolphins' Mike Gesicki: Ends scoring drought
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gesicki caught two of five targets for 35 yards and a touchdown during Sunday's 20-3 win over the Jets.

Gesicki salvaged his fantasy day with a score in the second quarter (his first since Week 3), but he's now logged five consecutive games with under 50 receiving yards. Still, the third-year tight end has also now drawn 15 targets over the last three weeks, so his involvement on offense has been encouraging. Whether Tua Tagovailoa (thumb) gets healthy in time to return Week 13 versus Cincinnati or Ryan Fitzpatrick draws another start, Gesicki's favorable matchup will make him a tempting streaming option.

Dolphins' Mike Gesicki: Modest numbers in Denver
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gesicki caught four of five targets for 43 yards during Sunday's 20-13 loss to the Broncos.

Gesicki's actually notched his third highest yardage total of the season in Denver, which is emblematic of the fact that outside of two 'boom' games (Weeks 2 and 5) the athletic tight end hasn't been too productive for fantasy purposes. Still, Gesicki has now gone three straight games with at least 40 yards and four targets, so he appears to have begun to manufacture a stable floor. He'll get a favorable road matchup against the Jets in Week 12.

November 15, 2020 10:48 PM
Dolphins' Mike Gesicki: Pair of robust grabs in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gesicki secured two of five targets for 40 yards in the Dolphins' 29-21 win over the Chargers on Sunday.

The athletic tight end notched receptions of 23 and 17 yards on his way to posting the second-highest receiving yardage tally for the Dolphins on the afternoon. Gesicki has shown good chemistry with rookie signal caller Tua Tagovailoa thus far, posting a 5-82 line on nine targets in the quarterback's first two starts. Gesicki will look to play an even bigger role in a Week 11 road battle against the Broncos.
