Defense: Kickers:

Outlook

The Dolphins were supposed to breakthrough last season but it didn't work out as expected. Injuries didn't help matters for the team, though. Miami is healthy this year and has some new players in the mix, which should help for a rebound. Don't expect them to make the playoffs but they can be a .500 team. The defense still isn't great and has some holes. The offense could be pretty good, though, with some new players. The big issue will be the defense, which can be vulnerable to the big game. They'll need to shore up the defense before they can be expected to make the playoffs.
FANTASY BREAKOUT
If he is going to have that breakout season, we think this is the year for quarterback Ryan Tannehill to do it. He has a revamped offensive line, a new offensive coordinator and some new weapons at receiver. Things are really lined up for Tannehill to have a big season. He is always capable of the big game and played well much of the season last year despite having a terrible offensive line in front of him. He should do much better since he isn't likely to be running for his life most games this season.
FANTASY DUD
He signed a big contract with the team this offseason but that doesn't mean running back Knowshon Moreno will be handed a bunch of playing time. He was out of shape in offseason workouts and worked with the second team much of the time. This wasn't a good start for Moreno. He also has the talented Lamar Miller to compete with for carries. Miller probably has more talent than Moreno and could grab playing time for him if he can start running with consistency. It is just going to be really hard for Moreno to match his last season with the Broncos.

Team Notes

Jan 25, 10:52 AM Miami Dolphins impending free-agent TE Charles Clay is a player that the Dolphins would like to re-sign and are expected to offer him a contract in the next few weeks.
Jan 23, 09:42 PM Miami Dolphins WR Mike Wallace said he wants to return to the team next season, but he added that he would welcome testing the free agent market if the team chooses to release him.
Jan 23, 04:02 PM Miami Dolphins OT Branden Albert (knee) is making good progress in his rehab from a torn anterior cruciate ligament and a torn medial collateral ligament, according to a source. The team and their doctors are encouraged about how quick Albert has made progress in his rehab.
Jan 22, 04:43 AM Miami Dolphins general manager Dennis Hickey had praise for QB Ryan Tannehill, saying the team is 'excited' about his progress to date. "We are excited about [Tannehill's] future as a Dolphin. ... We saw a lot of progress [in 2014]," Hickey said.
Jan 21, 09:03 PM Miami Dolphins WR Mike Wallace's future with the team is unclear. General manager Dennis Hickey would not say Wednesday, Jan. 21, whether Wallace will be back or if his end of season drama will play into the decision. Wallace said everything is being evaluated.
Jan 16, 05:22 PM Miami Dolphins WR Mike Wallace's status for next season is not known at this point, according to owner Stephen Ross. Ross said he is not sure if anyone in the organization knows if Wallace will remain with the team.

Jan 12, 10:23 AM Miami Dolphins WR Mike Wallace has reportedly quit on the team multiple times this season. He told his position coach before halftime of the season finale, and later repeated it to his head coach, that if he wasn't getting the football thrown to him, there was no need for him to play.
