Fasano is undecided if he will return for the 2018 season, Hal Habib of the Palm Beach Post reports.
Fasano, now 34 years old, is set to be an unrestricted free agent at the end of the league year but is strongly considering retirement in the name of his long-term health. However, the veteran has never been much of a fantasy factor and that remained true with the Dolphins this year, as he only caught 12 of 16 targets for 107 yards and a touchdown in 16 games. He'd almost certainly remain a blocking specialist if he does return for a 13th professional season in 2018.
Fasano is expected to start at tight end over the Dolphins' final two games of the season after Julius Thomas (foot) was placed on injured reserve Wednesday, Chris Perkins of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.
Thomas had been averaging 4.4 targets per game for the season, and while a few of those looks should be dispersed to Fasano and fellow tight end MarQueis Gray, quarterback Jay Cutler is more likely to hone in on his wideouts and running backs more frequently. The 33-year-old Fasano, who has snagged 11 passes for 106 yards and a touchdown this season, mostly functions as a blocker at this stage of his career.
Fasano brought in both of his targets for 11 yards in Thursday's 40-0 loss to Baltimore.
Fasano was catchless through five games but has come alive with five catches -- including a touchdown -- over the past two weeks. Offseason acquisition Julius Thomas has been a disappointment this season, and the Dolphins may be working Fasano into the fold. Each saw 36 snaps on offense Thursday.
Fasano and the Dolphins have reached an agreement, ESPN's Jeff Darlington reports.
Fasano previously spent five seasons (2008-12) in Miami, where he cemented his reputation as one of the league's better in-line blocking tight ends. He had a career-low eight receptions last season in Tennessee, despite playing in all 16 games for the sixth time in his 11-year career. With recently-acquired Julius Thomas serving as the receiving threat, Fasano's role in Miami will he heavily tilted toward the blocking side.
Fasano caught his lone target for 12 yards Saturday in Jacksonville.
Fasano has eight catches this season, with no two coming in the same contest. The 32-year-old veteran is six receptions shy of his previous career low with just one game to play.
Fasano caught one of two targets for 17 yards Sunday against the Broncos.
Fasano was actually the team's third-leading receiver on an off day for quarterback Marcus Mariota. Don't expect the veteran tight end to climb higher than that in any of Tennessee's final three games, as he still hasn't recorded multiple catches in any contest this season.
Fasano failed to come down with his lone target Sunday in Chicago.
Fasano remains at six catches for 54 yards on the season. The veteran tight end serves almost exclusively as a blocker while Delanie Walker hogs all the receiving glory.
Fasano caught a nine-yard touchdown on his lone target Sunday against the Packers.
Fasano has exactly one catch in six different weeks this season and zero multi-catch efforts. Two of those grabs have gone for touchdowns, but don't expect him to keep finding pay dirt.
Fasano caught his lone target for nine yards Sunday in San Diego.
Fasano will run the occasional route to keep defenses honest, but serves primarily as a blocking tight end. It's telling that he only got one target in a game that saw quarterback Marcus Mariota attempt 43 passes.
Fasano (ankle) caught one of two targets for 10 yards Sunday against the Colts.
Fasano was able to suit up despite sitting out Wednesday's practice. He scored a touchdown last week, but still hasn't caught more than one ball in a game this season.
Fasano (ankle) practiced Friday and will play Sunday against the Colts.
Fasano sat out Wednesday's practice after picking up an injury last weekend, but he's been a full participant ever since and is slated to suit up Sunday. Although he has just three catches this season and no multi-reception games yet, his lone grab last Sunday went for a 15-yard score.
Fasano (ankle) was a full participant in Thursday's practice.
Fasano missed practice on Wednesday due to an ankle injury he suffered in Sunday's win over the Browns. However, the tight end was back to full participation Thursday, a reassuring sign that he'll be ready to go come Sunday. The injury will be something to keep an eye on, with Jace Amaro potentially getting in the offensive mix if Fasano's snaps are monitored.
Fasano (ankle) was unable to participate at Wednesday's practice.
Fasano came out of Sunday's win over the Browns with one catch for 15 yards and a touchdown, but also an ankle injury. It was severe enough to keep him sidelined at practice Wednesday, so his status will need to be monitored going forward. Jace Amaro would figure to fill in as Delanie Walker's backup if Fasano is unable to go in Week 7.
Fasano caught his lone target for a 15-yard touchdown Sunday against the Browns.
Fasano isn't targeted often, but happened to earn one in a very valuable spot. The touchdown should be treated as an anomaly given that he has just three since joining the Titans at the start of the 2015 season.
Fasano caught his lone target for 10 yards Sunday in Miami.
Fasano is a solid all-around tight end, but he's overshadowed by Delanie Walker in Tennessee. His role is primarily as a blocker, which doesn't translate into fantasy production.
Fasano was targeted three times, but managed only one catch for one yard Sunday in Detroit.
Quarterback Marcus Mariota likes to throw it to the tight end, but Delanie Walker has a near monopoly on production from that position in Tennessee. Fasano's value would shoot up if Walker got hurt, but the durable veteran has missed only three games since joining the Titans in 2013.
Fasano lined up for 25 offensive snaps during the Titans' Week 1 loss to the Vikings.
By avoiding any setbacks in Week 1, Fasano appears to have fully recovered from the hyperextended knee that he suffered in early September.
Fasano hyperextended his knee during Monday's practice, Terry McCormick of TitansInsider.com reports.
Fasano appears to have avoided any type of serious injury as he expects to be back practicing Wednesday. Barring any setbacks, he'll be on the field in Week 1 against the Vikings as well.
Fasano secured his lone target for 13 yards in Saturday's preseason win over the Raiders.
This was Fasano's first contribution of the preseason. While top tight end Delanie Walker left this contest with congestion in his chest, he's expected to be right back at practice Monday. As long as Walker's healthy, Fasano is a fantasy afterthought.
Fasano was targeted seven times, but came away with just two catches for 21 yards in Sunday's loss to the Texans.
Fasano has topped three catches just once all season. The second-string tight end is consistent if nothing else, as he has finished with between 18 and 26 receiving yards seven times this season.
