Dolphins' Nik Needham: Solid rookie season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Needham notched 54 tackles (41 solo), one sack, 11 defended passes, two interceptions and one forced fumble across 12 games in 2019.

Needman was promoted from Miami's practice squad in mid-October, when injuries to the secondary thrust him into the starting lineup. The UTEP product never gave back the reigns, and he ultimately concluded the 2019 campaign as a regular starter at cornerback. He's under contract for 2020, but it's worth noting that the Dolphins are a realistic contender to add to the secondary in the offseason.

Dolphins' Nik Needham: Snatches first interception
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Needham registered six tackles (five solo), three passes defensed and one interception in Sunday's win over the Colts.

Needham posted an impressive line for a second straight week and was part of a stifling effort by the Dolphins' defense against Brian Hoyer and the Colts. The rookie was also on the field for all 70 of Miami's defensive snaps, proving that he has become an established member of the secondary since being signed to the active roster prior to Week 6.

Dolphins' Nik Needham: First sack of season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Needham recorded nine tackles (six solo) and one sack during Sunday's 26-18 win over the Jets.

Needham played at an explosive level during Miami's first win of the season, logging 93 percent of defensive snaps. He'd previously never played 70 percent of snaps on defense in a single game. Given his impressive performance, it's possible that the UTEP product could play another significant role on defense versus the Colts in Week 10.

Dolphins' Nik Needham: All clear for Week 8
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Needham (foot) is officially active for Monday's primetime game against Pittsburgh, Adam H. Beasley of the Miami Herald reports.

Needham was a late addition to the injury report for the Dolphins, as he picked up a foot injury during Friday's practice session. The UTEP product should resume his normal role as a depth cornerback for the game now that he's presumed healthy.

Dolphins' Nik Needham: Considered questionable
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Needham (foot) is listed as questionable for Monday's game against the Steelers, Safid Deen of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.

Needham was recently promoted to the Dolphins' active roster. He has compiled three solo tackles and a pass defended through two games. His status for Monday's game will be determined closer to kickoff.

Dolphins' Nik Needham: Joins Miami
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Needham was promoted from the practice squad Saturday, Cameron Wolfe of ESPN.com reports.

Needham is expected to provide depth to a Dolphins secondary that currently has four different cornerbacks listed as questionable ahead of Sunday's game. Safety Doug Middleton was cut in a corresponding move.
