Dolphins WR Kenny Stills suffered a lower-body injury in Monday's practice. The team hasn't provided an update, but the report from the Palm Beach Post's Joe Schad doesn't sound good. "Stills was running a pass route when he pulled up at the end and collapsed along the right sideline in considerable pain," Schad writes. "At one point, Stills did grab the back of a his leg." We'll update Stills' status when we learn more. He had emerged as Miami's #2 WR.

Dolphins WR Kenny Stills played ahead of WR DeVante Parker in Thursday night's preseason game. Stills was in for all 7 of the 2-WR snaps in the 1st half, while Parker played none. Stills was also more productive, hauling in 4 of 6 targets for 46 yards. Parker corralled 2 of 4 targets for just 8 yards. This situation probably isn't settled yet, but Stills certainly looks like the better value in fantasy drafts. He's usually going undrafted, while Parker's ADP is sitting in the 5th round.

Dolphins WR DeVante Parker has been sidelined for the past 3 days with a hamstring issue. He ran off to the side of Thursday's practice but didn't look close to 100%, according to insider Omar Kelly. "Might take some time," Kelly added. We'll see exactly how long Parker is out as Miami installs HC Adam Gase's offense. His absence is affording WR Kenny Stills more 1st-team reps.

The Miami Herald’s Armando Salguero says WR Kenny Stills has “been impressive since minicamp” and “opened some eyes” early in training camp. Stills flopped in 2015, his first year with the Fins. Still, he averaged 16.3 yards per catch on 27 receptions and will play this season at just 24 years old. Stills also started his career with 2 promising campaigns in New Orleans. Rookie Leonte Carroo limits the veteran to deep league value, but he’s an option late in best ball drafts.

Dolphins WR Kenny Stills (ankle) is active for today’s game against the Ravens. His status seemed to be legitimately in doubt, so it’s tough to believe he’s anywhere close to 100%. Stills will serve as Miami’s #3 WR today and would be a desperation fantasy play.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport hears that Dolphins WR Kenny Stills (ankle) is not expected to play against the Ravens today.  That's contrary to the report we got from beat writer Armando Salguero.  We'll find out Stills' official status by noon ET.  Miami will already be without WR Rishard Matthews (ribs).  Rookie DeVante Parker is in for a big workload.

Dolphins WR Rishard Matthews (ribs) is out for Sunday’s game against the Ravens. WR Kenny Stills is questionable after tweaking his ankle in Thursday’s practice. Miami expects Stills to play, according to insider Armando Salguero, but he’ll be the #3 WR behind Jarvis Landry and DeVante Parker.

Dolphins HC Dan Campbell conceded Monday that WR Rishard Matthews (chest, ribs) might not be available for this Sunday's game against the Ravens.  Matthews lasted just 3 snaps in the loss to the Jets.  His absence led to a season-high 59 snaps for rookie WR DeVante Parker.  WR Kenny Stills played 52.  Both guys will be on the WR3 radar for a plus, plus Week 13 matchup if Matthews sits.

Dolphins WR Rishard Matthews injured his ribs in the 1st quarter of Sunday's game against the Jets.  He's officially questionable to return.  Matthews' absence should mean more snaps for WR Kenny Stills.

Dolphins WR Kenny Stills returned to practice on Monday. The Miami newcomer missed roughly 2 weeks with a calf injury, but it was never considered serious. He remains on the radar as a late round flier.

Per team insider Omar Kelly, Dolphins WR Kenny Stills has been dealing with a left calf injury since June. It’s limited him early in camp, but it doesn’t sound like a long-term issue. “The players know their body the best. They are the guys out there, so we’re utilizing him as often as possible,” HC Joe Philbin said of Stills. “If something is not right, we’ll cut it back a little bit.” The 1st year Dolphin looks like a fantasy WR4 in such a loaded passing game.

Dolphins HC Joe Philbin said QB Ryan Tannehill “definitely” can improve his deep ball accuracy. “It’s not just cranking the ball 65 yards down field, two yards outside the numbers or at the goal post,” Philbin said. “Obviously you’ve got to have arm strength, which he has arm strength. You’ve got to have some touch, which he has some touch. If there’s that extra uncanny knack between two guys, different guys — that’s an area where he and the receivers can improve upon. And with new guys, that’ll take us a little bit of time to work through.” Tannehill heads to training camp with an overhauled WR corps that includes DeVante Parker, Kenny Stills and Greg Jennings. Even a slight bump in deep ball efficiency would help keep the 4th-year passer safely in QB1 range.

Despite the additions of WRs DeVante Parker and Greg Jennings, Dolphins insider James Walker believes WR Kenny Stills remains a "safe bet" to start this season.  WR Jarvis Landry will stay in his slot role, according to Walker, while Parker and Jennings duke it out for the other outside spot.  (We'll bet on Parker winning that battle.)  This is a deep WR corps, and the targets might be tough to predict on a week-to-week basis.  But the ultra-efficient Stills could still produce WR3 numbers.

The Saints have traded WR Kenny Stills to the Dolphins, according to multiple sources.  The purge continues in New Orleans, where Stills, Jimmy Graham and Ben Grubbs have been shipped out of town.  QB Drew Brees is left with Brandin Cooks, Marques Colston and not much else.  The Fins, meanwhile, pick up a cheap, 22-year-old (23 next month) who's been 1 of the most efficient WRs in the league over the past 2 seasons.  Stills has hauled in 70.9% of his targets and averaged 16.5 yards per catch.  Often miscast as only a downfield threat, Stills is actually a well-rounded receiver.  Per Pro Football Focus' Mike Clay, his 82% catch rate on targets 20 yards or less downfield is tops in the NFL since at least 2007.  QB Drew Brees deserves some credit for that, but it's also worth noting that Stills led all Saints pass-catchers last year by averaging 2.03 yards per route run.  This is a crazy-efficient WR who gives QB Ryan Tannehill's fantasy stock a nice boost.  Stills' probably takes a slight hit, but he's capable of WR3 production in Miami.

The Saints have placed WR Brandin Cooks (thumb) on IR.  He was originally expected to be back in 4-6 weeks, so it's possible that the injury turned out to be more serious than initially thought.  It shouldn't impact his 2015 offseason or fantasy outlook, though.  Cooks finishes his rookie campaign with 53 catches, 550 yards and 3 TDs in 10 games -- a 16-game pace of 85-880-5.  Cooks also rushed for 73 yards and a score.  He's sitting 25th among WRs in non-PPR fantasy points and 22nd in PPR.  The Saints will move forward with Marques Colston and Kenny Stills as their clear top 2 WRs.

Saints WR Brandin Cooks suffered a broken thumb against the Bengals. He’s expected to be out 2-4 weeks, although it’s hard to see him returning on the early end of that timeline. We have no issue with dropping Cooks in shallow leagues. While he’s sidelined, Kenny Stills figures to see a healthy boost in snaps and targets. Jimmy Graham and Marques Colston certainly get usage boosts, too.

10:41am EDT 9/14/14

Saints WR Kenny Stills (quad) is active for today’s game against the Browns. He practiced all week, including a full workout on Friday, and appears to be back to 100%. Stills is a risky WR3 in the 2014 debut, though.  WRs Joe Morgan and Nick Toon are scratched for New Orleans today.
