Dolphins re-signed OT Sam Young.

They cut S Maurice Smith to make room. Young was bludgeoned in Miami's Week 6 loss to Cincinnati, causing several offensive breakdowns that led to a late-game collapse. He will resume backing up LT Laremy Tunsil.

Dolphins coach Adam Gase said Ryan Tannehill (shoulder) is "day to day."

Gase said he will not know about Tannehill's status until he sees him throw later this week. Worryingly, the coach added Tannehill actually got worse as last week went on, which is why they decided to sit him. Gase confirmed Tannehill will be the starter once he is healthy.

Dolphins DE Charles Harris is "week to week" with a calf injury.

Harris suffered the injury during last Friday's practice and missed the win over the Bears. The Dolphins are also without Cameron Wake, who reportedly underwent a knee scope.
Oct 15 - 12:00 PM

Mike Gesicki corralled one-of-two targets for 11 yards Sunday in the Dolphins’ Week 6 win over Chicago.

The rookie took a backseat to Nick O’Leary, who outgained him by nearly 40 yards. Despite his immense athleticism, the Penn State alum has yet to become a factor in the fantasy realm. He’ll be off the streaming radar against Detroit in Week 7.
Oct 14 - 7:00 PM

Jakeem Grant brought in three-of-four targets for 32 yards Sunday in the Dolphins’ Week 6 win over the Bears.

Grant was questionable for this game after battling a shoulder injury throughout the week. The injury didn't seem to bother him, though obviously he wasn’t a big factor in this one. Grant won’t be a fantasy option against Detroit in Week 7.
Oct 14 - 6:59 PM

DeVante Parker couldn’t haul in his lone target Sunday in Miami’s Week 6 win over the Bears.

Active for only the second time this year, the injury-prone Parker was targeted just once, which resulted in an interception by quarterback Brock Osweiler. The 26-year-old has never delivered on his first-round hype and could be a goner at the trade deadline later this month. He's not fantasy relevant.
Oct 14 - 6:58 PM

Kenny Stills managed just one catch for 35 yards on two targets Sunday in the Dolphins’ Week 6 win over Chicago.

Stills had a goose egg through four quarters before coming down with a miraculous 35-yard grab off a deflection during overtime. Though he was held without a catch in regulation, Stills did contribute a two-point conversion during Miami’s fourth-quarter comeback. The 26-year-old hasn’t been much help to fantasy owners this year, clearing 40 yards receiving just once in his last five games. He’ll take a three-game touchdown drought into next week’s game against Detroit.
Oct 14 - 6:57 PM

Danny Amendola absorbed eight-of-11 targets for 59 yards Sunday in the Dolphins’ Week 6 win over Chicago.

Amendola saw plenty of work in the win, though he averaged just 7.1 yards per reception with a long gain of 11 yards. Leonard Floyd pulled a wrestling move on Amendola in the first quarter but luckily the diminutive slot receiver was able to shake it off. Amendola's season-long touchdown drought continued against Chicago, though he saw more targets in this game than he had in his previous three combined. The veteran will go against Matt Patricia, another former Patriot, when the Dolphins host Detroit in Week 7.
Oct 14 - 6:01 PM

Kenyan Drake totaled 57 yards on 13 carries while adding four catches for 21 yards on six targets Sunday in Miami’s Week 6 win over the Bears.

He out-touched Frank Gore (barely) but was significantly out-gained by the veteran. Drake was near tears after losing a goal-line fumble in overtime but he redeemed himself later by gaining 22 yards on the Dolphins' game-winning drive. This marked Drake's largest workload of the season both in terms of carries and total touches. He'll look to build off Sunday's performance next week against the Lions.
Oct 14 - 6:01 PM

Frank Gore registered 101 yards on 15 carries while turning his lone target into an 18-yard catch Sunday in the Dolphins’ Week 6 victory over the Bears.

Gore, the NFL's oldest running back, is the first player to rush for 100 yards against Chicago this year. Go figure. The veteran brought the hammer in overtime, cruising to 47 yards during the extra period. He broke off a 32-yard run in overtime, which marked his longest rushing play in almost three years. Gore looked gassed after that run and was soon replaced by Kenyan Drake, who proceeded to lose a goal-line fumble. Miami's backfield remained a near even split on Sunday with Drake out-touching Gore 17-16. Those two will continue to work in tandem next week against the Lions.
Oct 14 - 5:05 PM

Albert Wilson delivered six catches for 155 yards and two touchdowns on nine targets Sunday in Miami’s Week 6 victory over the Bears.

This was only the second 100-yard receiving game of Wilson's career. The first-year Dolphin did nearly all of his damage in the second half, blowing up for 150 yards after the break. Wilson showed game-breaking speed in the fourth quarter by turning a simple dump-off from Brock Osweiler into a 43-yard touchdown. He bettered that with a 75-yard touchdown later in the quarter, which tied the game at 28 with just over three minutes remaining. With so many mouths to feed in Miami, Wilson won't be someone fantasy owners can consistently rely on, though his touchdown prowess—he's now visited the end zone four times this season—puts him in play as a bye-week fill-in/DFS dart throw. We'll see what he does for an encore next week against the Lions.
Oct 14 - 5:04 PM

Brock Osweiler completed 28-of-44 passes for a career-high 380 yards with three touchdowns and two interceptions while adding eight yards on two carries Sunday in the Dolphins’ Week 6 win over the Bears.

Osweiler was not sacked. Making his first start for the Dolphins in place of an injured Ryan Tannehill, Osweiler was his usual head-scratching self in the first half but woke up by contributing 266 yards on 16-of-25 passing after the break. Brock had his most success throwing to Albert Wilson, who erupted for a pair of second-half touchdowns including a 75-yarder to tie the game with time winding down in the fourth quarter. Osweiler is now 3-0 against the Bears for his career. He's the first Dolphins signal-caller to reach the 300-yard mark in passing yards since Jay Cutler reached that threshold in Week 9 last season. If Tannehill's shoulder is still an issue, Osweiler could see the field again next week against the Lions.
Oct 14 - 5:01 PM

Dolphins DE Cameron Wake underwent arthroscopic surgery on his injured knee.

The usual recovery for a knee scope is four weeks, but apparently Wake is just a quick healer that he could return for next week's game against the Lions. Wake led Miami with 10.5 sacks last season but only has one through four games this year.

Dolphins declared QB Ryan Tannehill, RB Kalen Ballage, TE A.J. Derby, DE Charles Harris, CB Bobby McCain, LB Martrell Spaight and DE Cameron Wake inactive for Week 6 against the Bears.

Tannehill is out with a sprained AC joint in his throwing shoulder. Consider him week-to-week. With Tannehill down for the count, Brock Osweiler will make his first Dolphins start in Week 6. LB Chase Allen (foot), DE Andre Branch (knee), WR Jakeem Grant (shoulder), S T.J. McDonald (foot), WR DeVante Parker (quad) and OT Laremy Tunsil (concussion) are all active for the Dolphins.
Oct 14 - 11:39 AM

According to ESPN's Jeff Darlington, Ryan Tannehill (questionable, shoulder) is now looking "doubtful" for Week 6 game against the Bears.

Tannehill's shoulder hasn't been right all week and now he's looking like a long shot to suit up Sunday against Chicago. Brock Osweiler is expected to step in at quarterback, which will be a downgrade for all of Miami's pass-catchers. With Tannehill's status in doubt, Chicago's defense should be a high-owned DFS commodity.
