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

Mar 26, 11:52 AM Miami Dolphins restricted free-agent DE Derrick Shelby signed his tender offer Wednesday, March 26. Terms of the contract were not disclosed.
Mar 25, 02:13 PM Free-agent LB Jason Trusnik (Dolphins) is attracting interest from the New York Jets.
Mar 24, 09:33 PM The Denver Broncos want to use OG Shelley Smith at left guard, although he is able to play center as well. The preference for head coach Gary Kubiak is to keep Smith at guard.
Mar 24, 03:02 AM Miami Dolphins coach Joe Philbin had his deal extended through the 2016 season by team management.
Mar 23, 07:02 PM Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill's fifth-year option will be picked up if the team is not able to sign him to a contract extension over the next six weeks, according to sources. Tannehill would make $16 million in 2016 if his option is picked up. It is believed the Dolphins have talked about signing Tannehill to a six-year deal worth more than $100 million.
Mar 23, 04:52 PM Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill is a candidate for a contract extension this offseason, and the two sides are expected to begin talks in the near future, according to owner Stephen Ross.
Mar 20, 04:32 PM Free-agent QB Matt Moore (Dolphins) re-signed with the Miami Dolphins Friday, March 20. Terms of the contract were not disclosed.

Fantasy Impact: Moore will be the top backup for the Dolphins this season.
Mar 20, 02:22 PM Miami Dolphins FS Louis Delmas (knee) said he'll definitely be ready for the start of the 2015 season after tearing the anterior cruciate ligament in his knee last year.
Mar 20, 02:12 PM Free-agent RB LaMichael James re-signed with the Miami Dolphins on a one-year deal Friday, March 20. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Fantasy Impact: He'll compete for a roster spot with the Dolphins.
Mar 20, 01:22 PM Free-agent FS Louis Delmas (Dolphins) is re-signing with the Miami Dolphins on an undisclosed deal Friday, March 20, according to a source.
Mar 19, 01:22 PM Miami Dolphins TE Jordan Cameron will be the team's go-to tight end now that they didn't bring back TE Charles Clay, who signed an offer sheet with the Buffalo Bills. Cameron made the Pro Bowl in 2013 and has more athleticism than Clay, but Cameron has also dealt with multiple concussions.
Mar 17, 02:53 AM Free-agent QB Matt Moore (Dolphins) is drawing interest from the Miami Dolphins, and Moore would like to return. However, sources indicate Moore wants fair market value for a backup quarterback so he may explore other options.
Mar 15, 09:53 AM Miami Dolphins TE Jordan Cameron said he does not believe the three concussions he suffered over the past three seasons will affect him moving forward. 'I've seen a lot of specialists and talked to a lot of people and it's cleared. My baseline is the same as it was six years ago. There's no cause for concern on my end for this, and the Dolphins felt the same,' Cameron said.
Mar 13, 07:03 PM Free-agent OG Shelley Smith (Dolphins) has signed a two-year deal with the Denver Broncos worth $5.65 million, according to a source.
Mar 13, 01:13 PM Miami Dolphins LB Dannell Ellerbe and a third-round draft pick were obtained in exchange for WR Kenny Stills Thursday, March 13, according to a source.
Mar 13, 01:03 PM Updating a previous report, former New Orleans Saints WR Kenny Stills has been signed by the Miami Dolphins, according to a source. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
