Top five Miami Dolphins fantasy players for 2015


Fantasy football is right around the corner. Drafts will begin soon enough as training camps turn to pre-season and pre-season inches towards the start of the regular season. Who on the Miami Dolphins is actually worth selecting this year? Is anyone?

If you are in a IDP league, that’s independent defensive player league, then Ndamukong Suh and Cameron Wake would be smart additions to your roster somewhere down the draft line but most people don’t dabble too much in IDP leagues so we can leave them off this list for today.

Ryan Tannehill

Tannehill has been the most improved quarterback over the last three seasons but it may not be time yet to pencil his name down as your starter. Sure he tossed for over 4,000 yards last season and 27 touchdowns but he is not close yet to being drafted higher than round nine or ten. The reality is that in most leagues, Tannehill will still be on the board around the 10th round and isn’t a bad pick-up to be your bye week replacement (if you pair him right) or a starter should you lose or whiff on your first choice. Maybe next year he will rise higher but not yet.

Lamar Miller

Despite carving over 1,000 yards on the ground last season, Miller only put eight touchdowns on the board. While he broke a long run of 97 yards for a score his week to week totals were not all that impressive from a fantasy standpoint. Miller is a player that you can draft, somewhere around rounds five or six (unless you play with other Dolphins fans). Miller has a lot of potential this year and his projections on the season are going up. He shouldn’t be your top running back prospect but he will make for a decent number two option and a great number three.

Kenny Stills

It’s still early to see how Tannehill and Stills will match-up together. Stills has big play potential. Last year he posted 931 yards receiving and three touchdowns but New Orleans struggled all season long. Still could be a boom or bust player this year but for now he is better suited to a mid-late or late round flyer. There are better options in the mid-rounds to take a flyer on Stills here.

DeVante Parker

Parker will be a great deep draft pick-up IF you are in a dynasty league. He has little to no value this season fantasy wise, at least to start the season. He will miss all of camp and while he is expected to be ready for week one, his conditioning and rapport with the offense will be questionable.

Jordan Cameron

The Dolphins best chance for fantasy points may very well be resting in the hands of Cameron. Cameron, in 2014, held a third round draft ranking but concussions have plummeted his stock after missing most of last season. In Miami, he could be the teams go-to guy in the red-zone and if the Dolphins do indeed target the big tight end, his fantasy points will return to the 2013 season where he posted points consistent with the NFL’s elite TE’s.  This year Cameron is likely a late 4th to 6th round pick because there are too many variables this season but make no mistake, if you can get him in the mid-rounds you could have a top TE on your team with little investment.
