An Achilles' injury led to Grant missing the last seven games. He was pretty mediocre when in the lineup, though. He had more than 40 yards just once and caught 21 passes for 268 yards. He has 34 career receptions in three seasons. He is likely No. 4 or 5 on the depth chart again this season. Grant is a good fit for the slot. Grant is very small but is great in space and can make plays with the ball in his hands.
FANTASY OUTLOOK: Grant might get a few more chances but still won't be on the field enough to help most fantasy teams. He might get around 25 receptions for 300 yards.

Miami Dolphins wide receiver/kick returner Jakeem Grant (leg) is aiming to do more in the 2019 season. He caught a pair of touchdown passes while also returning a kickoff and a punt for touchdown in 2018, joining Andre Roberts as the only player in the NFL to check off all of those boxes. He was limited to 10 games due to a lower leg injury. "I feel like last year I kind of made a big name for myself in the return game. I want to be the best returner in the league," Grant said. "And I want to be one of the top receivers in the league." Grant is heading into a contract year, too, which is always good news for fantasy owners.
Miami Dolphins WR Jakeem Grant missed the final six games of the 2018 season with a lower leg injury, but he believes that while the injury 'kind of messed with me mentally' initially, he is now 'over that mental hump.'
Miami Dolphins wide receiver Jakeem Grant (Achilles) is taking part in organized team activities this week and looks good. Grant had surgery in the offseason but will be fine for training camp and the regular season. The 26-year-old has 34 receptions for 471 yards and four touchdowns in 42 games over his three seasons with the Dolphins. He'll be a long shot for fantasy relevance behind Devante Parker, Kenny Stills and Albert Wilson in 2019.
Miami Dolphins WR Jakeem Grant (Achilles) and DE Charles Harris (wrist) were limited during practice Tuesday, May 14.
Miami Dolphins wide receivers Albert Wilson (hip) and Jakeem Grant (leg) continue to work their way back from injuries last season. Neither receiver might be ready for organized team activities, but they should both be good to go for training camp. Wilson is the one to watch in fantasy, as he could have a much bigger role in the 2019 offense. The 26-year-old played in only seven games in his first season in Miami, catching 26 passes for 391 yards and four touchdowns. However, he could be in line for a breakout season this year if everything goes his way. Grant could also have more opportunity, but he's more of a fantasy long shot with only 34 catches for 471 yards and four scores in three seasons.
Miami Dolphins wide receiver Jakeem Grant (heel) said his recovery from his heel injury is going well, but he is unsure if he'll be on the field for organized team activities this spring. He also added that he "should be" ready for training camp this summer. Because of his injury in 2018, Grant played in only 10 games and caught 21 passes for 268 yards and two touchdowns. Even with Miami likely moving on from Devante Parker this offseason, Grant is unlikely to have much of a role behind Kenny Stills, Danny Amendola, Albert Wilson and whoever else the team brings in.
Miami Dolphins WR Jakeem Grant (Achilles') said he isn't sure he will be ready for the start of OTAs but expects to be back in the field by the time training camp begins.
