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.

Jul 29, 09:23 AM Miami Dolphins OG Nate Garner is taking snaps with the first-team at center Tuesday, July 29, after C Sam Brenner (leg) left with an injury.
Jul 29, 08:53 AM The Miami Dolphins signed free-agent TE Brett Brackett (Cardinals), undrafted free-agent QB Seth Lobato (Northern Colorado) and DE D'Aundre Reed. QB Brock Jensen was waived and OG Davonte Wallace (undisclosed) was waived/injured.

Jul 28, 04:53 PM The Miami Dolphins signed free-agent OT Tony Hills (Raiders) to an undisclosed deal Monday, July 28.
Jul 28, 03:37 PM Miami Dolphins RB Lamar Miller will be used much like Philadelphia Eagles RB LeSean McCoy was last season. That means he should see quite a few passes headed his way. He'll have to hold off Knowshon Moreno (knee), but Miller seems to be clearly in the lead in the backfield. Miller is a mid-rate RB2. Moreno has low RB3 value when he returns from injury.
