Dolphins EDGE Jaelan Phillips (quad) is active for today's game against the Bears. S Eric Rowe (hip) is as well but shouldn't be in IDP lineups after being a healthy scratch a week ago.

The Dolphins have acquired RB Jeff Wilson from the 49ers in exchange for a 2023 5th-round pick. He’ll immediately slot in as the #2 back following today's trade of Chase Edmonds. Like Raheem Mostert, Wilson joins the squad with experience alongside HC Mike McDaniel. The new Dolphin is a poor bet for standalone fantasy value, but he carries handcuff appeal in Miami’s dynamic offense.

The Dolphins are sending RB Chase Edmonds and 2 draft picks to the Broncos for EDGE Bradley Chubb. The Broncos are getting a 2023 first-rounder that initially belonged to San Francisco, as well as a 4th-rounder in 2024. Miami will get a 5th-rounder in 2025. Chubb upgrades a Dolphins pass rush that ranks just 23rd in sacks and has dealt with some injuries. He's in the final year of his rookie deal, so we'd bet on an extension following. Edmonds played his way out of the starting backfield gig in Miami but lands in a Denver offense that presents opportunity. We'll see about the team's RB plans coming out of the Week 9 bye, though we wouldn't bet on any of the Denver backs truly taking over. Chubb's departure should mean more playing time for 2nd-round rookie EDGE Nik Bonitto, who has 1.5 sacks over his past 2 games. Myles Gaskin looks like the #2 RB in Miami now.

Dolphins WR Tyreek Hill put up another monster line in Week 8 against Detroit, this time slashing 12/188/0. Hill saw 14 targets — a 38.8% target share. Tua Tagovailoa again delivered some underthrown deep balls, but Hill continued to make the necessary adjustments. The former Chief is now on pace for over 2,000 receiving yards over a full season. He'll face the Bears in Week 9.

Dolphins QB Tua Tagovailoa delivered 382 yards and 3 TDs against the Lions in Week 8. After getting down 21-7 in the 1st half, he played mistake-free football. As usual, he leaned on Tyreek Hill and Jaylen Waddle, with the pair accounting for 77% of his yardage. This one always shaped up as a high-upside spot against a bad Detroit defense, and Tua capitalized with the overall QB1 performance. He’ll remain a top-12 guy for the road ahead, including Sunday at Chicago.

The Dolphins surprisingly made Eric Rowe inactive for today's game against the Lions. He's a healthy scratch, which fuels speculation that he could be traded ahead of Tuesday's deadline. Rowe even tweeted he was "shocked" shortly after inactives came out. with S Brandon Jones on IR, expect Clayton Fejedelem to join Jevon Holland in the lineup.

Dolphins CB Xavien Howard (groin) and EDGE Emmanuel Ogbah (back) are active for today's game against the Lions.

Dolphins lead CB Xavien Howard (groin) and EDGE Emmanuel Ogbah (back) are questionable for Sunday's game in Detroit. Howard played through his injury for 100% of defensive snaps last Sunday night. Ogbah missed that game but finished the practice week with a full workout. We'll check both players' statuses Sunday morning.

The Dolphins on Monday placed S Brandon Jones on IR for the knee injury that knocked him out of Sunday night's game. HC Mike McDaniel didn't say whether Jones would miss the rest of the season but said he expected to have more info by Wednesday. Eric Rowe is the next man up for Miami.

Dolphins RB Raheem Mostert handled 16 of 23 RB carries for Miami, tallying 79 yards in the Sunday night win over the Steelers. He added 4 catches for 30 yards and a TD among 5 targets, snagging the team's only score. Chase Edmonds got less than half as much playing time: 18 snaps vs. 44. He finished with 7-17 rushing and no catches on 2 targets. Edmonds is solely a handcuff for fantasy purposes, while Mostert is looking like a weekly RB2. He gets a terrific matchup with Detroit in Week 8.

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 S Brandon Jones left in the 3rd quarter of Sunday night's win over the Steelers with a left-knee injury. He needed a lot of help getting off the field, so this one could be significant. Dr. David Chao said that by video, there's fear of an ACL tear. We'll see what the team says Monday. Eric Rowe replaced Jones in the lineup.

Dolphins EDGE Emmanuel Ogbah (back) is inactive for tonight's game against the Steelers. CB Xavien Howard (groin) and DL Christian Wilkins (hand) are active.

6:51pm EDT 10/23/22

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 DT Christian Wilkins (hand), EDGE Emmanuel Ogbah (back) and CB Xavien Howard (groin) are questionable for Sunday night's game against the Steelers

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.

Dolphins WR Jaylen Waddle (shoulder) remained limited in Thursday's practice. We're expecting him to play vs. the Steelers on Sunday night, but we'll see how he's listed on the final injury report tomorrow.

Dolphins WR Jaylen Waddle (shoulder) was limited in Wednesday's practice. He banged that shoulder up late in last week's loss to the Vikings but was able to return. Waddle should be fine for Sunday night's game vs. the Steelers, but we'll get another update on his status tomorrow.

Dolphins QB Tua Tagovailoa is not listed on the Week 7 injury report. It's confirmation that he's cleared concussion protocol and will start Sunday night's game vs. the Steelers. Tua hasn't made it through a game healthy since Week 2 but opened the season with QB22 and QB2 finishes.

Dolphins HC Mike McDaniel said Monday that QB Tua Tagovailoa will work as the starter in practice this week and is expected to be ready for Sunday night's game against the Steelers, according to NFL Network's Cameron Wolfe. Tagovailoa, of course, last played in the Thursday night loss to Cincinnati in Week 4. We'll watch his status this week, but expect the Miami QB to be a viable starting option for fantasy football lineups in Week 7.
