Dolphins' Kyle Van Noy: Disruptive in Thursday night win
Van Noy notched three tackles (one solo) and one strip-sack during Thursday's 31-13 win over the Jaguars.
Van Noy was a force in the pass rush Thursday, and he had a number of plays that didn't show up on the stat sheet but forced Gardner Minshew to abandon reads. He even recovered the fumble after logging a strip-sack in the fourth quarter, a play that essentially sealed the win for Miami. Van Noy has been a solid option in IDP formats through three contests, and he'll look to keep up his momentum against the Seahawks in Week 4.... See More ... See Less
Dolphins' Isaiah Ford: Comes down to earth Thursday
Ford caught both his targets for 14 yards during Thursday's 31-13 win over the Jaguars.
Ford had seven catches for 76 yards Week 2, but he took a clear back seat to all of DeVante Parker, Preston Williams, Mike Gesicki and Myles Gaskin in the passing game during Thursday's victory. The 24-year-old looks destined to continue splitting No. 3 WR reps with Jakeem Grant, a role which will make him difficult to trust as a fantasy option in Miami's low-floor offense.... See More ...

Dolphins' Matt Breida: Just three touches versus Jags
Breida had three carries for four yards during Thursday's 31-13 win over Jacksonville.
Breida wasn't targeted Thursday, as Myles Gaskin (22 carries and five targets) handled the vast majority of Miami's backfield reps. With Jordan Howard locked into the Dolphins' short-yardage work, it looks as though Breida's only opportunities will come as an occasional change-of-pace option to spell Gaskin. Until such time as his workload increases, Breida can be considered off the fantasy radar in most formats.... See More ... See Less
Dolphins' Jordan Howard: Another short score
Howard had three carries for one yard and a touchdown during Thursday's 31-13 win over the Jaguars.
Howard took the field late in the first quarter to punch in a one-yard score, salvaging his fantasy day with a TD for the third consecutive week. Now that he's been completely relegated to short-yardage duties (0.8 YPC through three contests), Howard's low-ceiling, low-floor fantasy value only comes due to his consistent goal-line work....

Dolphins' Jason Sanders: Perfect in first win
Sanders converted his sole field-goal attempt and all four extra-point tries during Thursday's 31-13 win over the Jaguars.
Sanders remains perfect on the year, though he's now been held to a single field-goal attempt in two of three games. Despite his flawless accuracy, Sanders' low volume of attempts robs him of a reliable fantasy ceiling.... See More ... See Less
Dolphins' Preston Williams: Catches first TD of season
Williams brought in both his targets for seven yards and a touchdown in the Dolphins' 31-13 win over the Jaguars on Thursday.
Williams was able to salvage what would have been a complete wash-out of a night for fantasy managers with his three-yard touchdown grab in the first quarter. The Colorado State product has struggled to make an impact in new coordinator Chan Gailey's offense thus far, posting just five catches on 14 targets through three games. The solid amount of looks is encouraging, and Williams may be able to start converting them into better production the more he familiarizes himself with the scheme. He'll look to push his numbers up across the board in a Week 4 home matchup against the Seahawks on Sunday, Oct. 4.... See More ... See Less
Dolphins' Mike Gesicki: Back in end zone Thursday
Gesicki caught one of three targets for a 15-yard touchdown in the Dolphins' 31-13 win over the Jaguars on Thursday.
The third-year tight end was nowhere near as prolific as four days prior against the Bills, but Gesicki still rewarded fantasy managers with his second touchdown grab of the season. The Penn State product may see his reception volume fluctuate depending on game flow, but based on his strong second-half finish in 2019 and early returns this season, it's clear Gesicki's fantasy prospects are on the right trajectory. He'll look to play a bigger role in a Week 4 home matchup against the Seahawks on Sunday, Oct. 4.... See More ... See Less
Dolphins' Jakeem Grant: Garners 107 all-purpose yards
Grant hauled in his only target for 19 yards, rushed once for 29 yards, returned two kickoffs for 31 yards and brought back two punts for 28 yards in the Dolphins' 31-13 win over the Jaguars on Thursday.
The speedster was fairly busy due to his multiple responsibilities, but he once again played a minimal role as a receiver. The good news is that Grant has caught all five targets he's seen thus far this season, but those have amounted to just 46 yards. Grant has yet to see his blazing speed translate to game action, as Thursday's 19-yard catch counts as the longest of his season-plus as a pro. He'll look to up his production from scrimmage in a Week 4 home matchup against the Seahawks on Sunday, Oct. 4.... See More ... See Less
Dolphins' DeVante Parker: Paces receivers in win
Parker secured all five targets for 69 yards in the Dolphins' 31-13 win over the Jaguars on Thursday.
Parker had shaken his hamstring concerns by putting in a full practice Wednesday, and he was able to log a normal workload while co-leading the team in receptions and setting the pace in receiving yardage. The 27-year-old has been able to carry over his 2019 rapport with quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick into this season despite the limited practice time in a new offense, as he's now brought in 14 of 17 targets for 169 yards and a touchdown through three games. Parker will now have a chance to get his legs some extra rest ahead of a Week 4 home matchup against the Seahawks on Sunday, Oct. 4.... See More ... See Less
Dolphins' Myles Gaskin: Lead-back duties in win
Gaskin rushed 22 times for 66 yards and brought in all five targets for 29 yards in the Dolphins' 31-13 win over the Jaguars on Thursday.
Through the Dolphins' first two games, the backfield wealth was essentially spread amongst Gaskin, Matt Breida and Jordan Howard, with no clear-cut lead back. That clearly changed for at least one game Thursday, as Gaskin outpaced his aforementioned teammates by 19 carries each and also co-led the team in both receptions and targets. The second-year back wasn't anywhere near as efficient on the ground as during the first two games of the season, when he averaged 5.4 yards on his 16 rushes. However, the boost in volume on the ground was certainly a welcome sight for Gaskin's fantasy managers, who now have reason to hope the Washington product could be headed for a true workhorse role moving forward that also includes a solid pass-catching component. Gaskin will look to make good on that potential in a Week 4 home date against the Seahawks on Sunday, Oct. 4.... See More ... See Less
Dolphins' Ryan Fitzpatrick: Highly efficient in Week 3 win
Fitzpatrick completed 18 of 20 passes for 160 yards with two touchdowns and no interceptions in the Dolphins' 31-13 win over the Jaguars on Thursday. He also rushed seven times for 38 yards and another score and logged one reception for no gain.
In the team's Week 2 loss to the Bills, Fitzpatrick went a long way toward resembling the quarterback who knows coordinator Chan Gailey's offense well from having run it with ample success in both Buffalo and New York. Thursday, game script didn't call for Fitzpatrick to be anywhere near as active through the air, but the efficiency he demonstrated was that of a quarterback completely comfortable within a system. The veteran connected on his first 12 passes, a career best, and finished with a 133.3 rating for the night, misfiring only twice while averaging 8.0 yards per attempt and notching completions to seven different pass catchers. With the air attack now seemingly considerably ahead of where it was just two weeks ago in the opener against the Patriots, Fitzpatrick and his teammates will utilize some much-needed extra time to gear up for a formidable Week 4 interconference challenge in the form of the visiting Seahawks on Sunday, Oct. 4....

Dolphins' Noah Igbinoghene: Officially starting Thursday
Igbinoghene is starting in place of Byron Jones (groin/Achilles) for Thursday's game against the Jaguars, Adam H. Beasley of the Miami Herald reports.
Igbinoghene handled 93 percent of defensive snaps against the Bills in Week 2 after Jones was forced from the contest, so this news only officially confirms what was already expected. The rookie third-round pick will start across from Xavien Howard and work to contain a Jaguars' receiving corps that will be without DJ Chark (chest).... See More ... See Less
Dolphins' Clayton Fejedelem: Inactive as expected
Fejedelem (pectoral) is inactive for Thursday's match against the Jaguars.
Fejedelem was initially listed as doubtful for Thursday Night Football despite logging a trio of limited practices. He'll look to retake the field versus the Seahawks in Week 4.... See More ... See Less
Dolphins' Malcolm Perry: Healthy scratch Thursday
Perry (coach's decision) is inactive for Thursday's game against the Jaguars.
Perry hasn't yet been active for a game this season. The rookie seventh-round pick may not be handed a path to make his NFL debut unless the Dolphins suffer injuries to the running back or wide receiver positions.... See More ... See Less
Dolphins' Lynn Bowden: Inactive for TNF
Bowden (coach's decision) is inactive for Thursday's game against the Jaguars.
Bowden only played five percent of offensive snaps Week 2, so his absence won't carry very noticeable fantasy repercussions. Jakeem Grant and Mack Hollins will serve as Miami's depth wideouts behind DeVante Parker, Preston Williams and Isaiah Ford.... See More ... See Less
Dolphins' Tae Hayes: Promoted to face Jags
The Dolphins promoted Hayes to the active roster from the practice squad Thursday.
Hayes will provide Miami with key cornerback depth against the Jaguars during Thursday Night Football with Byron Jones (groin/Achilles) out. He played a rotational role on defense down the stretch for the Dolphins last season.... See More ... See Less
