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) could be a productive volume-based QB2 play as the Dolphins were one of four teams to throw it 600-plus times last season.

Running Backs


Kenyan Drake180.3811.46.139.1299.12.31.6158.25
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 his December workload (21.6 touches per game) won't carry over into 2018 as the co-starter with Frank Gore, Drake could finish as a top-24 fantasy back in 2018.
Frank Gore121.5467.83.919.5152.11.40.592.79
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. Listed as the co-starter with Drake, it's possible that the veteran back once again exceeds expectations.
Kalen Ballage47.8200.81.218.3155.61.31.547.64
The 229-pound rookie out of Arizona State had impressed the coaching staff during the offseason workouts, but training camp and the preseason has been a different story so far. The rookie back is clearly behind Drake and Gore for snaps.

Wide Receivers


Kenny Stills54.7864.360000.5121.43
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. In fact, I wouldn't be surprise if Stills turns out into Miami's most productive fantasy wide receiver in 2018.
DeVante Parker64.1849.35.40000.3116.73
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 would have upside if he were able to put it all together this season. Unfortunately, a broken middle finger has his Week 1 status in jeopardy and reports from training camp have been anything but glowing before the broken finger.
Danny Amendola60.5647.430000.382.14
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. Amendola has worked primarily with the first-team offense in camp and he's an excellent late-round target in PPR formats.
Albert Wilson42.9553.43.20000.274.14
Wilson set career highs (42/554/3) across the board last season. Signed to a three-year, $24 million contract, Wilson should get opportunities to improve upon last year's numbers even though his exact role remains unclear. That said, both Stills (ankle) and Parker (finger) are dealing with injuries at the moment.

Tight Ends


Mike Gesicki34.2451.44.10000.568.74
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 (real) 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. Derby17.81941.10000.225.6
MarQueis Gray12.2141.50.60000.117.55
Durham Smythe4.143.50.20000.15.35
