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.

Jul 18, 08:32 PM Miami Dolphins QB Pat Devlin appears to have a slight edge over QB Brock Jensen for the No. 3 quarterback job entering training camp because of his experience. Neither player stood out during offseason workouts.
Jul 18, 08:22 PM Miami Dolphins OG Shelley Smith is expected to start at right guard this upcoming season but could be moved to center because of the injury to C Mike Pouncey (hip).
Jul 18, 07:12 PM The Miami Dolphins have signed third-round draft choice OT Billy Turner to a four-year deal worth an estimated $3.1 million. The signing bonus is believed to be around $700,000.
Jul 15, 04:43 PM Miami Dolphins C Mike Pouncey will be sued for his alleged role in a nightclub disturbance Saturday, July 12. An alleged physical altercation occurred involving Pouncey, and a statement was taken by police. The police did not identify a suspect.

'I just want to be on the field making an impact for my team. I've always wanted to return kicks ever since I've been in the NFL.'

Jul 13, 08:52 PM Miami Dolphins QB Matt Moore said he understands his role as the backup quarterback and will be ready if he is called on to play. 'I just do my job and try and succeed. Everyone has that competitor in them, and at this level, you have to understand your role. This is it. I'm here to push [QB Ryan Tannehill] and challenge him and compete the best I can. I'll be ready at a moment's notice and be ready to do well,' Moore said.
Jul 10, 06:52 PM Miami Dolphins CB Cortland Finnegan received praise from head coach Joe Philbin recently, who said the veteran cornerback fits nicely into the defense's chemistry.

Jul 10, 02:52 PM Miami Dolphins DE Dion Jordan does not plan to appeal his four-game suspension and has accepted the punishment.
