Dolphins S Jevon Holland (knees) and CB Xavien Howard (hip) are inactive for today's game against the Jets. With S DeShon Elliott (concussion) also out, that leaves Miami down three of its top four DBs. It's tough to trust QB Zach Wilson for fantasy production, but the setting looks excellent for WR Garrett Wilson at least. Edge Andrew Van Ginkel (oblique) is active after entering the day questionable.

Dolphins S Jevon Holland (knees) is questionable for the third straight game. He missed the past two contests. But this week marked the first time in that span that Holland managed limited practices every day. He told reporters Friday only that he's "day to day," "taking his time," and "coming along nicely," according to Joe Schad of the Palm Beach Post. We'll check Holland's status Sunday. It'll matter even more after Miami ruled out S DeShon Elliott with a concussion. S Brandon Jones should get his third straight start. Elijah Campbell stepped in after Elliott left last week's game. Missing both starting safeties would obviously make Miami's defense more vulnerable, especially a week after arguably the best game of Jets QB Zach Wilson's career. The Dolphins have also deemed CB Xavien Howard (hip) and Edge Andrew Van Ginkel (oblique) questionable. Howard missed one practice before returning to limited work Thursday and Friday. Van Ginkel was limited each day. We'll check their statuses Sunday morning.

Dolphins Edge Jaelan Phillips left in the second half of Friday's game against the Jets. He left the field on a cart after what looked pretty clearly like a rupture of his right Achilles' tendon. Miami quickly reported it as an Achilles' injury. This looks likely to end Phillips' season and could challenge his start to 2024. We'll watch for more on the 24-year-old, who has one more year on his rookie contract and then the fifth-year option available for 2025. Andrew Van Ginkel filled in for Phillips when he missed time earlier this season and would likely step into a starting role for the rest of this year. He'll be worth a pickup in plenty of IDP leagues ahead of Week 13.

Dolphins Edge Jaelan Phillips (oblique) is active for today's game against the Panthers. He missed the past two contests and indicated during the week that he wasn't sure whether he'd be ready. Don't be surprised if he plays a smaller snap share then usual. But there's plenty of upside to make him worth a slot in IDP lineups. Edge Andrew Van Ginkel -- who has seen playing-time boosts in Phillips' absence -- remains an upside play for this contest as well.

The Dolphins have ruled Edge Jaelan Phillips (oblique) out for Sunday's game against the Bills. His absence will mean more playing time for Edge Andrew Van Ginkel. When Philips missed Week 2, Van Ginkel played 88% of snaps and delivered 6 tackles, 1 sack, 3 QB hits, and 1 pass deflection. He has climbed into DL2 territory in our Week 4 DL rankings. Edge Emmanuel Ogbah also figures to get more playing time. He has yet to play more than 23 snaps in a game this season, though, and doesn't deserve consideration in most IDP leagues.

Dolphins DL Christian Wilkins (quad) and LB Andrew Van Ginkel (back) are active for today's game against the Jets.

Dolphins DL Christian Wilkins (quad) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Jets. He put in limited practices the past 2 days after opening the week on the sideline. LB Andrew Van Ginkel (back) is also questionable. He participated on a limited basis all week. S Brandon Jones finished the week with a full Friday practice after 2 limited days and does not carry an injury status into the game.
