Dolphins WR Tyreek Hill was held to 5 catches on 9 targets for 40 receiving yards in Sunday night’s win over the Patriots. Teammate Jaylen Waddle led the team in receiving with 86 yards on 4 catches in the divisional bout. It’s a familiar anecdote that Patriots HC Bill Belichick is good at tailoring a game plan around attempting to shut down an opponent’s most effective playmaker, so fantasy managers should have no reason to go away from Hill looking forward. Both he and Waddle are prime plays in Week 3 vs. the Broncos. This Miami offense has started the year firing on all cylinders.

Dolphins WR Jaylen Waddle (oblique) isn’t listed on the final Week 1 injury report. He was sidelined for a good chunk of August, but Waddle practiced all week, including full workouts on Thursday and Friday. He should play his usual role vs. the Chargers this weekend.

Dolphins WR Jaylen Waddle (oblique) was upgraded to full participation in Thursday's practice. He's good to go for this weekend's potential shootout vs. the Chargers.

Dolphins WR Jaylen Waddle (oblique) was limited in Wednesday's practice. He's been dealing with this injury since mid-August. We're still expecting Waddle to play vs. the Chargers on Sunday, but his status is worth monitoring over the next few days.

Dolphins WR Jaylen Waddle (midsection) told reporters that he expects to play in the season opener vs. the Chargers. He missed most of August but was spotted on the practice field on Thursday. We'll get Miami's first official practice report of the season on Wednesday.

Dolphins WR Jaylen Waddle (midsection) was in uniform for Tuesday's practice but remained on the rehab field, according to NFL Network's Cameron Wolfe. HC Mike McDaniel said that the team is being cautious with Waddle, with the goal to have him ready for Week 1. Waddle has been out since August 9. But, at this point, there's no reason to believe he won't be ready for the season opener.

Per beat writer Hal Habib, Dolphins WR Jaylen Waddle has been out of practice since Wednesday with an injury to his midsection. “Fortunate that it's not something that I know will be a long-term deal,” HC Mike McDaniel said this weekend. "But he’s… steadily rehabbing. And working with the trainers, which fires me up." Waddle should be fine for Week 1 vs. the Chargers, but we’ll keep an eye on his return. The third-year pro looks poised for another impactful season in 2023. “I think Waddle has probably had one of the best camps on our team this year,” QB Tua Tagovailoa said. “And it really started with OTAs. From the first day he came he showed up and he was locked in. So it's kind of unfortunate to see something like that happen. I hope that it's just, you know, a couple days or whatever and I hope he gets better.” Waddle sits top-15 in our WR rankings.

Per reporter Cameron Wolfe, Dolphins WR Jaylen Waddle “intentionally put on weight” over the offseason. The third-year WR was already stout at a listed 5’10, 182 pounds. Waddle owns 179 career catches — a number only five WRs have topped across their first two NFL seasons. Waddle profiles as a fringe WR1 for 2023.

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.
