Outlook

The Dolphins made quite the splash this offseason, signing several big-name free agents in hopes to turn things around. But we think much will depend on the development of Ryan Tannehill at quarterback. If he can take some step forwards, the Dolphins have a chance to compete for a playoff spot. If not, expect around a .500 season.

FANTASY BREAKOUT

Lamar Miller, RB. Miller didn't get a whole lot of work as a rookie but the Dolphins seem confident he can be their No. 1 back. He'll be given first shot at the job this season in an offense that should be improved. Miller needs to show more patience as a runner and do better between the tackles but has tons of ability and upside. He is a home-run threat with the ball in his hands and a game-changing type of player. He is ready to take a big step forward this season.

FANTASY DUD

Brian Hartline, WR. Hartline surprised many last season, emerging as the top receiver for the Dolphins. He was a viable fantasy option, getting plenty of weekly targets. But he will have a hard time repeating last season. Hartline has a lot more to compete with for targets, including Mike Wallace, Dustin Keller and Brandon Gibson. The Dolphins made quite the upgrades at receiver, which will impact the production of Hartline. Don't draft him based off last season.

Team Notes

Apr 17, 02:22 PM Free-agent WR Chad Johnson (Patriots) signed with the Montreal Alouettes of the Canadian Football League Thursday, April 17.

Fantasy Impact: He isn't coming back to the NFL.
Apr 15, 01:53 PM Miami Dolphins general manager Dennis Hickey is expecting big things from DE Dion Jordan in his second season this year. He's a very talented player and this is a big offseason for him, Hickey said. Last year with his shoulder he didn't have an opportunity to have a full offseason. That's so important. Developing and getting your body -- not just the physical reps but the mental reps -- getting in the weight room and all those things is such an important part to get these guys ready to make that jump.'
Apr 14, 03:42 PM The New England Patriots could show interest in free-agent TE Dustin Keller (Dolphins) at some point this offseason.
Apr 13, 08:48 PM Miami Dolphins WR Damian Williams said the team talked to him about the possibility of being a return man for them. Williams likely would be behind RB Marcus Thigpen in the competition if he becomes a candidate.
Apr 12, 08:12 PM Montreal Alouettes general manager Jim Popp said the team has been talking with free-agent WR Chad Johnson (Patriots) about a contract and will work him out Tuesday, April 15.
Apr 10, 09:52 PM The Miami Dolphins have signed free-agent WR Damian Williams (Titans) to a one-year deal worth $800,000.

Fantasy Impact: He'll compete for a roster spot with the Dolphins.
Apr 09, 03:13 PM Miami Dolphins OT Jason Fox is expected to compete for the starting right tackle job this upcoming season even if the team selects an offensive tackle during the 2014 NFL Draft.
Apr 09, 02:13 PM Miami Dolphins OG Shelley Smith will start at either left guard or right guard this upcoming season.
Apr 09, 02:13 PM The Miami Dolphins could consider releasing WR Brandon Gibson if WR Rishard Matthews surpasses him on the depth chart. The team would create $1.3 million in salary cap space if Gibson is released.
Apr 09, 02:13 PM Miami Dolphins CBs Cortland Finnegan, Jamar Taylor and Will Davis are expected to compete for one of the starting cornerback jobs during training camp.
Apr 09, 02:13 PM The Miami Dolphins could consider selecting a linebacker in the first round of the 2014 NFL Draft, which likely would push LB Philip Wheeler to a backup role.
Apr 03, 12:12 PM The Miami Dolphins signed QB Jordan Rodgers to an undisclosed one-year deal Thursday, April 3. He'll have a chance to compete for the third quarterback spot behind QBs Ryan Tannehill and Matt Moore.
Apr 02, 10:53 PM The Miami Dolphins signed free-agent QB Jordan Rodgers (Buccaneers) Wednesday, April 2. Terms of the deal were undisclosed. Rodgers is expected to compete with QB Pat Devlin for the No. 3 quarterback job.
Apr 02, 06:03 PM Miami Dolphins WR Armon Binns signed his exclusive rights tender Wednesday, April 2.
Apr 02, 02:43 PM The Miami Dolphins likely will look to draft a running back in the middle rounds of the 2014 NFL Draft even though they added RB Knowshon Moreno. The team will be looking for a running back that can make defenders miss or can break tackles when he is running hard.
Apr 02, 02:03 PM Updating a previous report, the Miami Dolphins signed OT Jason Fox to a one-year deal worth $795,000.
