The Dolphins on Monday released LB Benardrick McKinney. The move is somewhat surprising, after Miami traded for him in the offseason. But the Texans had already traded away the other player in the deal, DE Shaq Lawson. McKinney's departure leaves Elandon Roberts as the team's #2 off-ball LB, starting alongside Jerome Baker.

S Jevon Holland went to the Dolphins in the 2nd round of the 2021 NFL Draft. Holland brings good size and above-average speed. He opted out of 2020 but grabbed 9 INTs over his 1st 2 seasons with the Ducks. In Miami, Holland figures to challenge Bobby McCain for a starting spot.

Jaelan Phillips landed with the Dolphins as the 18th pick of the 2021 NFL Draft. A heralded recruit, Phillips lost 14 games to injuries over his 2 years at UCLA. He decided to medically retire at that point but later returned and transferred to Miami. In his lone season with the Hurricanes, Phillips racked up 15.5 tackles for loss, 8 sacks and 4 passes defensed. He comes with some negative injury history, but Miami evidently felt comfortable enough -- even taking him over Kwity Paye as the 1st edge defender off the board. Despite spending 4 years in college, Phillips still enters the league just shy of 22. He carries big upside for your dynasty IDP roster.

Dolphins LB Kyle Van Noy (hip) and LB Jerome Baker (knee) are active for today's game against the Patriots. Each is in play for IDP use.

Dolphins LB Kyle Van Noy (hip) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Patriots. He missed last week's game with the same injury. Van Noy progressed to 3 limited practices this week after getting on the field just once last week, so he's clearly at least closer to being ready. We'll check his status Sunday morning. LB Elandon Roberts (chest) is also questionable after missing last week's game. He looks unlikely to play. The absence of either would raise the IDP floor for Miami LB Jerome Baker.

Dolphins LB Kyle Van Noy (hip) and LB Elandon Roberts (chest) are inactive for today's game against the Chiefs. That raises the IDP floor for LB Jerome Baker, who has seen inconsistent playing time throughout the season. The matchup keeps him from being a strong option, but Baker now sits inside the top 40 of our Week 14 LB rankings.

Dolphins LB Kyle Van Noy (hip) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Chiefs. Van Noy missed practice Wednesday and Thursday before putting in a limited workout Friday. He's a weak IDP bet for Week 14.

Dolphins LB Kyle Van Noy (hip) is active for today's game against the Broncos. Use him as you normally would in IDP lineups.

Dolphins LB Kyle Van Noy (hip) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Broncos. We'll check his status Sunday morning, but Van Noy returned to last week's game after suffering the injury and participated in the week's final 2 practices.

The Dolphins have activated LB Kyle Van Noy off the COVID list, which puts him back in line to play Sunday against the Chargers. We've got him back in the Week 10 LB rankings.

The Dolphins on Thursday placed LB Kyle Van Noy and DL Christian Wilkins on the COVID list. The team didn't announce whether the players tested positive or just had contact with someone who did. The timing challenges their availability for Sunday's game against the Chargers. We'll see whether Van Noy or Wilkins can make it back for game day, but you should plan as though they won't.

The Dolphins have ruled out LB Kyle Van Noy (groin) for today's game against the Jets. DE Shaq Lawson (shoulder) is active but not a strong IDP option.

Dolphins LB Kyle Van Noy (groin) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Jets. Van Noy missed Wednesday's practice but returned for limited workouts Thursday and Friday. We'll check his status Sunday morning. DE Shaq Lawson (shoulder) is also questionable. He put in limited practices all week.

The Dolphins will be signing LB Kyle Van Noy to a 4-year, $51 million deal, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Van Noy produced LB3-level numbers his first 2 years in New England before slipping last season. His fantasy points per game dipped each of the past 2 seasons, though. Van Noy turns 29 this month and should still be in his prime. In Miami, he'll play under HC Brian Flores, who served as New England's LBs coach in Van Noy's first 2 Patriots campaigns. Expect Van Noy to play full-time snaps for the Dolphins and continue to see plenty of use as a blitzer.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that the Dolphins have agreed to a "massive deal" with free-agent CB Byron Jones. The former Cowboy is regarded as 1 of the league's top cover men, but that hasn't translated to much fantasy production the past couple of years. We'll see if that changes in a new defense.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that the Dolphins will be releasing S Reshad Jones when the 2020 league year begins on March 18. The move will reportedly free up $5.3 million in salary-cap space. It also comes as no surprise, if you paid any attention to Jones' up-and-down usage in 2019. Jones remains a solid player heading into his age-32 season and should be able to catch on elsewhere (assuming he wants to continue playing).
