Dolphins WR Jaylen Waddle posted an empty 3-catch, 44-yard line against Buffalo. Waddle mishandled a couple of potentially game-changing deep balls. He was also tackled inside the 1 on a rush attempt. Prior to that, the young WR picked up a shoulder injury that he quickly returned from. His 2nd season ends with 80-1400-8 in 18 games. Going forward, his value is closely tied to the health of Tua Tagovailoa.

Dolphins WR Jaylen Waddle (ankle) practiced fully on Friday and doesn't carry an injury tag for Sunday's Wild Card game vs. the Bills. Teammate WR Cedrick Wilson (hip, groin) is listed as questionable. With rookie QB Skylar Thompson set to be the starter this weekend, the fantasy appeal of all Dolphins' pass-catchers takes a tangible hit. Waddle has a combined 8 catches and 96 receiving yards in the last 2 games with Thompson primarily serving as the QB. Be cautious with Waddle and any other receiver on the Dolphins for fantasy playoff contests. The upside simply isn't there for any of them.

Dolphins WR Jaylen Waddle (ankle) once again practiced in a limited fashion on Thursday. Teammate Cedrick Wilson (hip, groin) logged limited participation as well. It's good to see this duo is managing some work in practice so far. We'll have their final injury designations for Sunday's Wild Card game vs. the Bills tomorrow.

Dolphins WR Jaylen Waddle (ankle) practiced in a limited fashion on Wednesday. Teammate WR Cedric Wilson (hip, groin) was also listed as limited on the injury report. There are plenty of injuries on this Dolphins roster ahead of Sunday's Wild Card game vs. the Bills to keep an eye on. We'll be sure to give an update on these pass-catchers tomorrow.

Dolphins WR Jaylen Waddle (shoulder) practiced fully on Friday and doesn't carry an injury tag ahead of Week 18 vs. the Jets. The second-year wideout isn't as appealing of a fantasy option this week as he usually is. With rookie QB Skylar Thompson set to be the starter and the Jets' defense being the single-toughest matchup for WRs in adjusted fantasy points allowed this season, we feel Waddle is more of a high-end WR3/flex option in lineups.

Dolphins WR Jaylen Waddle (shoulder) was a limited practice participant on Thursday. This marks the 2nd straight day of limited participation for Waddle ahead of Week 18 vs. the Jets. Friday's injury report should help give us a better idea regarding his availability for Sunday's game. We'll be sure to keep an eye on this one.

Dolphins WR Jaylen Waddle (shoulder) practiced in a limited fashion on Wednesday. This isn't exactly an ideal start for the week for the second-year wideout. Be sure to check back for updates regarding his status for Week 18 vs. Jets as the week unfolds.

Dolphins WR Jaylen Waddle used an 84-yard TD to power a 5-143-1 receiving line in Sunday's loss to the Packers. He and WR Tyreek Hill tied for the team lead with 6 targets apiece. Hill caught 4 balls for 103, including a 52-yard reception. It's Waddle's 2nd straight game over 100 yards, but there's some luck involved in delivering plays of 67+ in each contest. Waddle posted a nice catch rate against Green Bay but had caught just 42.3% of targets over the previous 4 games. His QB has struggled over the past 4 weeks relative to previous performance. Both wideouts will be in fantasy football lineups in most cases for a Week 17 trip to New England, in spite of QB Tua Tagovailoa's recent performance.

Dolphins WR Jaylen Waddle tallied 114 yards and a TD on just 3 catches in Saturday night's loss to the Bills. Waddle ranked 2nd on the team with 7 targets, trailing only Tyreek Hill (13) and 5 ahead of any other Miami player. A 67-yard TD early in the 3rd quarter powered Waddle's production. His 7 targets did rank a clear 2nd on the team, 6 behind Tyreek Hill's lead but 5 behind anyone else on the squad.

The forecast for tonight's Dolphins-Bills game calls for temperatures in the mid-20s and potentially heavy snow. If there's good news, it's that winds are expected to be manageable: 5-10 mph sustained with gusts of 10-15 mph. These are still less-than-ideal conditions for the passing and kicking games, though. We've made some adjustments to our projections for this game. Check out the updated rankings.

Dolphins WR Tyreek Hill finished Week 14 with 4 catches (10 targets), 81 yards and 1 TD. Hill added a fumble return score on one of the wildest plays you’ll see this season. Credit Hill for playing through an ankle issue, one we'll need to keep an eye on this week at practice. On the receiving score, Hill beat his man downfield for a 57-yarder. That proved huge, as Tua Tagovailoa played his worst game of the season, at one point completing only 3 of 17 attempts. That type of output seriously limited the upside of Jaylen Waddle, who totaled only 2-31 on 4 targets. He’s now totaled 3-40 over the past 2 weeks. This unit will look to rebound Saturday night against a tough Bills defense. A major turnaround in that one is unlikely.

Dolphins WR Jaylen Waddle (fibula) isn’t listed on the final injury report. He practiced all week, including full workouts on Thursday and Friday. So he should be ready for his usual role vs. the Chargers on Sunday night.

Dolphins WR Jaylen Waddle (fibula) was upgraded to full participation in Thursday's practice. It's great news after he was banged up last weekend and then limited on Wednesday. The full practice suggests that he'll be at least close to 100% for Sunday night's game vs. the Chargers.

Dolphins WR Jaylen Waddle (fibula) was limited in Wednesday's practice. He returned to last week's game after hurting his leg but was noticeably hobbled. We'll see what he does in practice the next 2 days, ahead of Sunday night's game vs. the Chargers.

Dolphins WR Jaylen Waddle is questionable to return to Sunday's game vs. the 49ers with a leg injury. We'll update his status when we know more.

Update: Waddle returned for the start of the 2nd half.

Dolphins WR Tyreek Hill finished Week 12 with 6 grabs for 85 yards. Jaylen Waddle led the team in targets, but the margin was slim (10 vs. 9 for Hill). Both guys took advantage of a Texans secondary minus top CB Derek Stingley. Hill did miss some time with cramping, but fantasy owners should be pleased with the result nevertheless. He’s now up to 87-1,233-4 in 11 games. Next up is a road matchup at San Francisco.

Dolphins WR Tyreek Hill led the team with a 26.6% target share in Week 9. As a result, he posted another monster fantasy line: 7 catches, 143 yards and 1 score. Hill continues to create separation with ease. And it’s hard to see a dud creeping up here, as a hyper-accurate Tua Tagovailoa continuously feeds his playmakers. Jaylen Waddle contributed 5-85-1, giving him 85+ yards in 4 straight. Both guys are top-5 PPR WRs entering a Week 10 date with Cleveland.

Dolphins QB Tua Tagovailoa returned Sunday night for his 1st game action since the scary concussion at Cincinnati in Week 4. He completed 21 of 35 passes in the win over the Steelers for 261 yards and 1 TD. Tagovailoa took nary a sack, avoided turnovers and even ran for 15 yards on 4 rushes. WR Tyreek Hill led the offense with 13 targets and 7 catches (for 72 yards), while WR Jaylen Waddle paced the group with 88 yards (on 5 targets, 4 receptions). TE Mike Gesicki drew 7 targets for the 2nd straight game but managed just 3 catches for 27 yards. The whole group gets a high-ceiling matchup at Detroit in Week 8, with solid-to-good spots the next 2 weeks as well vs. Chicago and Cleveland.

Dolphins WR Jaylen Waddle (shoulder) is active for tonight’s game vs. the Steelers. He was limited in practice all week, adding some risk to his fantasy profile. But Waddle is available if you were waiting on him.

Dolphins WR Jaylen Waddle (shoulder) was limited in practice all week and is listed as questionable for Sunday night’s game vs. the Steelers. That late kickoff could put fantasy owners in a tough spot. We’ll look for an update on Waddle’s status on Sunday morning.
