Dolphins WRs DeVante Parker (hamstring) and Preston Williams (knee) are not listed on the final Week 1 injury report. Both guys were full participants in Friday’s practice. Still, HC Brian Flores hinted earlier this week that guys dealing with even minor injuries might be limited in the opener. That — plus a tough matchup vs. the Patriots — makes Parker a WR3 and Williams a guy we’d rather not use in Week 1 fantasy lineups.
Dolphins WRs DeVante Parker (hamstring) and Preston Williams (knee) were limited in Wednesday's practice. Both guys are expected to play in this weekend's opener vs. the Patriots, but HC Brian Flores hinted this morning that they could have their snaps limited. Williams isn't a recommended Week 1 starter, while Parker should be considered a WR3 against Stephon Gilmore and a tough New England pass defense.
Dolphins WR Preston Williams (knee) has been "cleared for football activity," HC Brian Flores said Monday. That's a pleasant surprise after Williams tore his ACL on November 3. He's been running and rehabbing, per Flores, and is now focusing on learning new OC Chan Gailey's offense. Williams tallied a 32-428-3 line on 60 targets in 8 games last year, ranking 36th among WRs in PPR points over that span. Miami made no significant WR additions this offseason, so Williams should open the campaign in 2-WR sets alongside DeVante Parker.
Dolphins WR Preston Williams (knee) is "on schedule" for Week 1, according to The Miami Herald's Barry Jackson. Williams is rehabbing his November torn ACL. He was enjoying an excellent rookie campaign before going down, compiling a 32-428-3 line in 8 games. Williams sat 36th among WRs in PPR points at that time. Miami didn't make any significant additions to its WR corps this offseason, which would appear to be a vote of confidence in Williams. If healthy, he should open the 2020 campaign as a starter alongside DeVante Parker.
The Dolphins are comfortable with their current WR corps heading into the 2020 campaign, according to the Miami Herald's Barry Jackson. DeVante Parker and Preston Williams were both big surprises this past year. Parker broke out for a 72-1,202-9 line and signed a big 4-year extension in December. Williams was pacing toward an 856-yard, 6-TD rookie season before tearing his ACL in November. He's tentatively expected to be ready for Week 1. Parker and Williams figure to open 2020 as Miami's top 2 WRs, with Allen Hurns, Albert Wilson, Jakeem Grant and Isaiah Ford providing depth.
Dolphins HC Brian Flores announced Monday that WR Preston Williams will miss the rest of the season with the knee injury he suffered in Sunday's win over the Jets. No word yet on Williams' exact injury or whether it'll impact his availability for the start of the 2020 campaign. It's the end of a promising rookie season that saw Williams dominate in preseason action and then post a 32-428-3 line in 8 regular season games. He leaves behind 7.5 targets per game. Allen Hurns is the best bet to step into Williams' spot but isn't worth rostering in fantasy right now. WR DeVante Parker and TE Mike Gesicki should get volume boosts with Williams out.
Update: ESPN's Cameron Wolfe reports that it's an ACL tear for Williams. We'll see if he can get back to full strength for the start of next season.
Dolphins WR Preston Williams suffered a knee injury late in Sunday's win over the Jets and was carted back to the locker room. It was a tough end to a big day that saw Williams haul in 5 balls for 72 yards and 2 scores. We'll look for an update on Williams' injury.
Dolphins WR Albert Wilson (calf) is out for Sunday’s game against the Cowboys. DeVante Parker, Preston Williams and Jakeem Grant should continue to serve as Miami’s top 3 WRs — but none can be trusted in fantasy lineups.
Dolphins WR Albert Wilson (calf, hip) is out for Sunday’s game against the Patriots. DeVante Parker, Allen Hurns, Jakeem Grant and Preston Williams will serve as Miami’s top 4 WRs but none is a bankable fantasy play.
Dolphins WR Albert Wilson (hip, calf) missed his 2nd straight practice on Thursday. He's looking like a long shot to play against the Patriots this weekend. That'd leave DeVante Parker, Allen Hurns, Jakeem Grant and Preston Williams as Miami's top 4 WRs. None is a recommended fantasy play vs. a tough New England secondary.
The Dolphins are trading WR Kenny Stills and LT Laremy Tunsil to the Texans for a "huge package of picks including a first-rounder," according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Tunsil's arrival obviously helps Texans QB Deshaun Watson, though we liked the Houston passer even with a weak O-line. Stills' arrival is interesting. He obviously joins a much better offense. But does his acquisition point to the team being worried about Keke Coutee's sprained ankle? Or is Stills just a strong 4th wideout? We'll see about that. Back in Miami, meanwhile, the path just got a little clearer for standout rookie WR Preston Williams. He's interesting as an end-of-draft stash and should clearly be owned in all dynasty leagues.
Update: NFL Network reports that Miami is getting a pair of 1st-round picks and a 2nd-rounder.
