Raekwon McMillan Fantasy Football News 2017

Dolphins MLB Raekwon McMillan tore the ACL in his right knee in Thursday night's preseason opener against the Falcons. That takes away a rookie Miami planned to start in the middle this season. According to The Miami Herald, Mike Hull is the next guy up in McMillan's spot. The rookie's injury will only make it easier for OLBs Kiko Alonso and Lawrence Timmons to stay on the field in all defensive packages. The Dolphins reportedly don't plan to move Alonso back to the middle, where he started last year. We'll see if that changes through the preseason, though.

The Dolphins drafted Ohio State LB Raekwon McMillan in the 2nd round Friday night. McMillan has the size and athleticism to play the middle or outside. He'll likely need to wait for either Kiko Alonso or Lawrence Timmons to move on before he can claim a starting role, though, at least beyond the strong side. McMillan also needs to prove he can stay on the field in passing sub packages, which adds risk to his dynasty outlook.
