2018 Fantasy Football Projections: Miami Dolphins

In addition to viewing our 2018 Fantasy Football Projections by position, we will post our preseason projections per team.

Below you will find our 2018 fantasy football projections for the Miami Dolphins.



Ryan Tannehill528.2343.3385622.715.339.2168.61.22.9232.7
Missing 19 games over the past two seasons including all of 2017, Tannehill (ACL) has been fully cleared. If he's able to stay healthy, the volume could be there for Tannehill to be a productive QB2 as the Dolphins were one of four teams to throw it 600-plus times last season.

Running Backs


Kenyan Drake188.2865.76.438.32932.31.6164.87
Over the final five games of the 2017 season, Drake ran for a league-high 444 yards on 91 carries (4.88 YPC) with two touchdowns and added 17 receptions for 150 yards. While it's unlikely his December workload (21.6 touches per game) carries over into 2018, a top-20 fantasy season is within reach.
Frank Gore109.8422.73.518.21421.30.584.27
Returning home to Miami, the 35-year-old Gore has been incredibly durable -- seven consecutive 16-game seasons. Remarkably consistent, Gore has finished as a top-20 fantasy running back every season except for his rookie campaign, although he has averaged less than 4.0 YPC in each of the past three seasons.
Kalen Ballage51214.21.321.8185.31.51.553.75
The 229-pound rookie out of Arizona State has impressed the coaching staff during the offseason workouts, but he figures to be third in line for touches behind both Drake and Gore.
Senorise Perry5.9230.100002.9

Wide Receivers


DeVante Parker66.5881.15.70000.3121.71
I've been (too) high on Parker in his young career only to be disappointed. Given that Jarvis Landry and his 570 targets over the past four years are no longer on the roster, the 25-year-old Parker has upside if he's able to put it all together this season.
Kenny Stills53.18395.80000.5117.7
Over the past two seasons, Stills has 100 catches for 1,573 yards and 15 touchdowns and he's finished as a top-30 receiver in standard-scoring formats both seasons. There may be some game-to-game volatility, but there is a strong chance that he outperforms his current ADP.
Albert Wilson42.2544.43.20000.273.24
Wilson set career highs (42/554/3) across the board last season. Signed to a three-year, $24 million contract, Wilson should get plenty of opportunities to improve upon last year's numbers even though it's Parker, Stills and Amendola working mostly with the first-team offense early on in camp.
Danny Amendola51.9555.32.60000.370.53
With 60-plus catches in two of the past three seasons with the Patriots, Amendola could post a similar total (or even more) with Jarvis Landry no longer in Miami. Along with Parker and Stills, Amendola has worked primarily with the first-team offense early in camp although he'll compete with Albert Wilson for snaps in the slot.
Jakeem Grant6.192.70.6000113.27
Leonte Carroo2.625.70.30000.14.17

Tight Ends


Mike Gesicki31.7418.43.80000.563.64
Freakishly athletic, Gesicki has rare physical tools: 6-foot-5, 247 pounds, 4.54 forty, 41.5-inch vertical and 6.76 3-cone. Moreover, there is little competition atop the depth chart at tight end so Gesicki has a chance to make an immediate impact as a rookie. That said, rookie tight ends historically struggle to produce fantasy-relevant numbers.
A.J. Derby19.1208.21.10000.227.02
MarQueis Gray14.1163.60.70000.120.36
Durham Smythe5.356.20.30000.17.22
