5. Jakeem Grant Sr.
6 targets/ 2 receptions/ 1 carry/ 15 total yards
Grant was tied for second in targets on the team this week behind Devante Parker, who led the team with nine targets, and Salvon Ahmed, who also had six targets. Grant struggled by only being able to bring in 33% of his targets and could only churn out 12 receiving yards with those two catches.
Prior to William’s injury, Grant was mainly used as the team’s main return man, but now he is being used as the second fiddle behind Parker. In the game against the Los Angeles Chargers, Grant was able to put together a statline of 4 catches for 43 yards and a touchdown. Aside for the receiving work, it felt as though Grant brought every kickoff and punt to around the 50 and let the Dolphins offense have a short field.
Grant’s struggles this past week against the Broncos were not solely on him as the team as a whole struggled, but his impact was even more limited by the fact that he only had one return attempt. If Grant is unable to make a major impact as a wideout, as he had in the previous few games, he will have to step up as a returner, and when he gets his chances he produces for the Phins.
