The Dolphins have traded WR Isaiah Ford to the Patriots, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. Ford was almost exclusively a slot receiver for Miami this season. He caught 15 balls over the first 4 games but just 3 over the last 3. We'll see how Ford is deployed in New England, where Jakobi Meyers has replaced Julian Edelman in the slot, but he's not a great bet for 2020 fantasy value.
Dolphins WR Albert Wilson has opted out of the 2020 season. He joins WR Allen Hurns on the sidelines, leaving Miami thin behind WRs DeVante Parker and Preston Williams. Jakeem Grant, Isaiah Ford, Mack Hollins and Gary Jennings are next up on the depth chart. We'll see if Miami adds someone else to the mix.
Dolphins WR Allen Hurns has opted out of the 2020 season. He was set to play a depth role for the Fins. Miami is now down to Albert Wilson, Jakeem Grant, Isaiah Ford and Mack Hollins behind DeVante Parker and Preston Williams on the depth chart. Those names are worth remembering in OC Chan Gailey's WR-friendly offense.
The Dolphins are comfortable with their current WR corps heading into the 2020 campaign, according to the Miami Herald's Barry Jackson. DeVante Parker and Preston Williams were both big surprises this past year. Parker broke out for a 72-1,202-9 line and signed a big 4-year extension in December. Williams was pacing toward an 856-yard, 6-TD rookie season before tearing his ACL in November. He's tentatively expected to be ready for Week 1. Parker and Williams figure to open 2020 as Miami's top 2 WRs, with Allen Hurns, Albert Wilson, Jakeem Grant and Isaiah Ford providing depth.
The Dolphins spent a 7th-round pick on Virginia Tech WR Isaiah Ford. In just 3 college seasons, Ford racked up school career records in receptions, receiving yards and TD catches. He also led the team in all 3 categories every season. The draft position is disappointing for a guy who left school a year early, and Ford ran his Combine 40 in just 4.61 seconds -- 18th percentile at the position. That stands out further when you bring unspectacular size (6'1, 194). Throw in a loaded Miami WR corps that just brought back Kenny Stills in free agency, and there's not much room for Ford's fantasy profile to blossom.
