Miami Dolphins: Stock Up/Stock Down

UP: Jaelan Phillips

The consistency struggles that he endured as a rookie have followed him in to his second season, but Jaelan Phillips had himself a night against the Steelers on Sunday. The edge rusher was seemingly the only one to create consistent pressure on Kenny Pickett, and he was rewarded on the stat sheet.

Phillips finished with 1.5 sacks, doubling his total on the season, and had a nice night in the tackle column too. His 8 total tackles equaled the amount he had in five other games combined this season, and he played in 80 percent of the defensive snaps, his highest mark of the year. If he is able to continue his productive play, then he could be the answer that the Dolphins are looking for with their pass rush.

DOWN: Chase Edmonds

It was widely believed that Chase Edmonds would be the running back that received a bulk of the carries for the Dolphins in 2022, which is why his stock was even up in the first place. But along with his free agent signee counterpart in Wilson, Edmonds has been perhaps the most disappointing player on Miami’s roster so far this season.

Edmonds has seen a heavy decrease in his snap count since the first two weeks of the season, and for good reason. Raheem Mostert has easily been Miami’s most productive back, with Edmonds squandering his opportunities when he does get them, including dropped passes and missed cuts on crucial 4th downs.
