Nov 6 6:20pm ET

The Miami Dolphins claimed wide receiver Gary Jennings off waivers from the Seahawks, according to a league source. This comes after the team learned that rookie Preston Williams would miss the rest of the season after getting injured in the Week 9 win over the Jets. Jennings was a fourth-round pick by Seattle, but he failed to make an impact despite his speed and didn't see action in any game this year. His signing is notable given Miami's lack of receiving depth, but he'll still likely be behind Devante Parker, Albert Wilson, Jakeem Grant and Allen Hurns with his new team. Jennings should remain on the waiver wire in all leagues.

Miami Dolphins rookie wide receiver Preston Williams (knee) will miss the rest of the season after suffering an injury in the Week 9 win over the Jets. This comes as Williams posted his best line of the season on Sunday with five catches for 72 yards and two touchdowns against the Jets. He'll finish an impressive first year that saw him haul in 32 of his 60 targets for 428 yards and three touchdowns. Williams can struggle with drops at times, but he's certainly one of Miami's building blocks for the future in the offense. In his absence the rest of the way, Albert Wilson and Allen Hurns should join Devante Parker in three-wide sets, while tight end Mike Gesicki could be a TE2 sleeper the rest of the way.

Miami Dolphins wide receiver Preston Williams turned in the best performance of his young career on Sunday, scoring 18 points in a 26-18 victory over the New York Jets. Williams caught five of his nine targets for 75 yards and scored two touchdowns but was carted to the locker room early in the third quarter after suffering a left knee injury. More on the severity of the injury will be known after Williams gets an MRI that is scheduled for Monday, with the Dolphins preparing to travel to Indianapolis to play the Colts in Week 10. Williams leads all Miami receivers in 2019 with 60 targets, so any absence would open up more looks for teammates Devante Parker, Albert Wilson, and Mike Gesicki.

Keeping with the theme of his team, Miami Dolphins wide receiver Preston Williams did little to help his fantasy owners on Monday night, finishing with just 42 yards on four receptions in a 27-14 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers. All four of Williams receptions came in the first half, with his last catch of the game coming just three minutes into the second quarter. The seven targets he received trailed only teammate Devante Parker in the category but on one of the league's worst offenses, Williams is only a WR4/5 heading into his Week 9 matchup at home with the New York Jets.

His offense may be a sputtering bucket of rust, but Miami Dolphins wide receiver Preston Williams has been a somewhat consistent source of yards in 2019, even though touchdowns have been hard to come by. Williams put up a season-high in yardage in last weeks 31-21 loss to the Buffalo Bills, catching 6-of-8 targets for 88 yards. While he leads the team in targets, receptions, and yards, Williams hasnt scored a touchdown since Week 1 and has been outscored in standard leagues by teammate Devante Parker, who now has a touchdown in Miamis last three games. Given the volume of targets Williams continues to see and the amount of times Miami seems to be willing to throw with quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick under center, Williams is a WR4 heading into Miamis matchup with the Pittsburgh Steelers on Monday night. If he is to become anything more than that, he will not only have to start finding his way into the end zone, but he'll also need to be more efficient with all the targets hes receiving, as Williams has only caught 23 of the 44 balls thrown his way in 2019.

Miami Dolphins wide receiver Preston Williams had six receptions in a 31-10 loss to the Buffalo Bills on Sunday. Williams led all receivers with 82 yards and his eight targets on the day were behind only Devante Parkers 10, with quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick looking to him on multiple plays down the field, including a 35-yard reception in the first quarter. A critical fumble marred his day though, with Williams coughing up the ball deep in Miami territory midway through the fourth quarter, while Buffalo led 17-14. The Bills then took just three plays to make it 24-14 on a Cole Beasley touchdown, marking the beginning of the end of the Dolphins chance to earn their first victory of the year. Williams has a limited ceiling on a bad Miami team but is continuing to get a high volume of Miamis offense, with his 575 air yards representing the 23rd-highest total in the league. Williams and the Dolphins will face the Pittsburgh Steelers on Monday night, whose defense is allowing the 12th-most points to wide receivers so far in 2019, putting Williams in the conversation as a WR4.

Miami Dolphins wide receiver Preston Williams was briefly trending up in the fantasy community after receiving 12 targets in a Week 3 loss to the Dallas Cowboys, but his arrow has since pointed right back down. Blanketed by cornerback Josh Norman for much of last week's 17-16 loss to the Washington Redskins, Williams finished with just 31 yards receiving, catching two of his six targets. Williams and the Dolphins travel to Buffalo on Sunday to face a Bills Defense that has allowed a league-low 71 points to opposing wide receivers in 2019. That mark is almost 20 points better than the 90 points allowed by the Chicago Bears, who sit in second place in the category. Like most of his Dolphin teammates, Williams is nothing but a desperate flex play and should remain on the waiver wire until Miami's offense proves it can be anything but awful.

Miami Dolphins wide receiver Preston Williams was a popular sleeper heading into a favorable Week 6 matchup, as the Washington Redskins were bringing in one of the league's worst defenses. However, those bold owners who took a chance on Williams were rewarded with a dud, as he caught just two passes for 31 yards and no touchdowns in a 17-16 Miami loss. While his six targets were tied with Albert Wilson for the most among wide receivers, Williams has received more than seven targets just once this season and has only one touchdown and 232 yards in Miami's five games. Given his lack of production and with Miami's offense a total mess, Williams is just one of many Dolphins who should not be on anyone's fantasy roster.

Miami Dolphins wide receiver Preston Williams is on a team that seems to be actively trying to lose, but he could still be in for a big week with the winless Washington Redskins coming into town. While Williams has only scored one touchdown in 2019 and has yet to reach 70 yards in any game, he's still leading the Dolphins in targets, receptions, and yards. This means he is in WR3 territory going into a Week 6 matchup against a Washington defense that has been the league's third-worst unit against wide receivers in 2019. With teammate Devante Parker seemingly on the move, Williams could see his opportunities (and value) rise if he turns in a big performance against the Redskins this week.

Miami Dolphins wide receiver Preston Williams caught 4-of-7 targets for 46 yards in a 31-10 loss to the Los Angeles Chargers on Sunday. While he again led the team in targets, Williams also had a key drop that would've given the Dolphins a first down deep in Chargers territory with the score tied 10-10. Miami instead missed a field goal and the Chargers followed up with a touchdown to take a 17-10 lead that they would never relinquish. Following Miami's upcoming bye, Williams will only be a low-end Flex against the Washington Redskins in Week 6.

Considering he's seen his targets go up in every game - including a team-high 12 in last week's 31-6 loss to the Cowboys - Miami Dolphins wide receiver Preston Williams may soon belong on your fantasy radar. The bad news is that Williams only reeled in four of those 12 targets for 68 yards and also dropped a surefire 15-yard touchdown, but it's also becoming clear that he seems to have chemistry with new starting quarterback Josh Rosen. While it's hard to recommend any Dolphin, with his increased usage Williams could be a sneaky sleeper facing a Chargers Defense in Week 4 that just allowed 339 yards and three passing touchdowns to the Houston Texans.

For the second week in a row, Miami Dolphins wide receiver Preston Williams led the team in both targets and yards in another blowout loss to the Cowboys in Week 3. Williams only caught four passes for 68 yards but his 12 targets doubled those of fellow receiver Devante Parker, as the rookie continues to be a focal point of Miami's near non-existent offense. Williams is still only worth rostering in deep leagues but is worth keeping an eye on given his share of targets as Miami heads towards a Week 4 matchup at home against the Chargers.

Miami Dolphins wide receiver Preston Williams caught four of his six targets in Miami's 43-0 blowout loss to the Patriots on Sunday, ending with a total of 63 yards. While 48 of those yards came after the game was already out of hand in the second half, Williams was still Miami's most productive player on offense - even though that isn't exactly a difficult achievement. But even though he was Miami's best player on Sunday, it doesn't mean that he should find a home anywhere but in the deepest of fantasy leagues. With quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick and his lack of magic leading a minor-league band of misfits into Dallas for a Week 3 matchup, leave Williams on the wire where he belongs.

Miami Dolphins undrafted rookie wide receiver Preston Williams didn't play in the final preseason game on Thursday because he's made the final roster. Williams has good size and showed in training camp that he can make splashy plays, but he's inconsistent and has also shown troubles with drops. As it stands now, Albert Wilson, Kenny Stills and Devante Parker should be in on three-receiver sets in Week 1 against the Ravens. Williams will be battling with Jakeem Grant and Isaiah Ford for the No. 4 job, so the rookie is only worth a dynasty stash at this time.

Miami Dolphins rookie wide receiver Preston Williams wasn't able to repeat his outstanding performance in Week 1 of the preseason on Friday against the Buccaneers. He caught just one pass from quarterback Josh Rosen for seven yards on six targets. Williams impressed the team during offseason workouts and has upside as a flashy receiver that can make highlight-reel plays with the best of him, but he won't be consistent in Year 1 and is fighting an uphill battle for playing time behind the likes of Devante Parker, Kenny Stills and Albert Wilson. Williams is merely a player to watch as he looks to earn the trust of coaches and teammates.

Miami Dolphins wide receiver Preston Williams made plenty of impressive plays during organized team activities (OTAs), and he even earned the praise of his quarterback. "Preston is going a nice job," QB Ryan Fitzpatrick said. "He'll make some wow plays and he'll make some plays that remind you that he's a young guy. Consistency is going to be a big thing with him, but in terms of some of the physical features and the way that he can go and get the ball and those type of things, he's been very impressive." Williams has an uphill climb, as the roster consists of Devante Parker, Kenny Stills and Albert Wilson in the top three slots. He'll be battling Brice Butler, Jakeem Grant and Ricardo Louis for meaningful playing time, so it will be a battle in training camp and preseason.

Miami Dolphins undrafted wide receiver Preston Williams is standing out and opening eyes in organized team activities. The 6-foot-4, 210-pounder has speed, good body control and great footwork. Williams was undrafted after an off-field incident with a woman. He had 1,345 receiving yards last year and 14 touchdowns and he's constantly winning in practice and scoring touchdowns. Williams must first win a roster spot in training camp, but he's certainly one to watch moving forward in Miami.
