Fantasy football season will start to kick off later in June and into July and the drafts will start in August but are any Miami Dolphins worth the draft picks?
When it comes to the Miami Dolphins, their roster has never really given fantasy players much value but this year it all could change and it should change. This year, there are players that you should be considering for your roster.
If you do rookie drafts for keeper leagues, Jaylen Waddle is a must-watch player. He has the potential to provide your team with game-changing points but is he a short-term answer as well?
Once fantasy football really ramps up we will take another look but as we close out May and head into the summer, here is a quick look at potential fantasy value from the Miami Dolphins roster.
Jason Sanders: Sanders has become one of the most reliable and consistent kickers in the league and while most fantasy owners don’t draft a kicker until the final rounds, Sanders should be a target for you heading into this year. The Dolphins very well have an offense that can move the ball but we don’t know if they are ready to put it into the endzone consistently.
Tua Tagovailoa: It doesn’t matter what the naysayers are putting out in the media, Tagovailoa will be drafted sometime after round 10. He is a starter and has a lot of potential. He won’t likely be your starter but the player you add that could become one as the season goes on.
DeVante Parker: Parker’s 2020 was not close to his 2019 and that will drop him a few rounds and that is good. He has the capability of putting up great weekly numbers especially in PPR leagues. You can do better early but Parker would make a very good number 3 or flex receiver.
Mike Gesicki: Gesicki is a hard one to predict. He can be great one weekend and then not give you any real points next week. Working in his favor is that he is targeted and rarely drops passes. He is a perfect TE for a PPR league. Gesicki doesn’t have the name recognition as other TEs but after the top three are off the board early, Gesicki is just as good as the ones you will find later in the draft.

Will Fuller: If your roster is deep then Fuller is a good late option. He shouldn’t be drafted in the mid-rounds where more value traditionally exists. He should be taken after round 10 but if you are in a league with other Dolphins fans, he will go early. He has game-breaking ability but his first year in Miami may not get him the points you need.
Myles Gaskin: Running backs are always top three-round players. There are so few of them that consistently carry the bulk of the workload as many teams are moving to dual-back systems. In Miami, Gaskins isn’t going to draw a bunch of attention but in reality, he will carry the bulk of the Dolphins running duties and because of that, he has a lot of value. 4th round? Probably a good spot to take him.
Jaylen Waddle: If you are in a dynasty league, Waddle is a great player to draft as he will grow into his role and into the NFL. He may not give you a lot of points this year but he is intriguing enough that you could take him later in the draft, stash him on your roster, and see how the season plays out.
