Shark Bites

Dolphins S T.J. McDonald (ankle) is questionable for Sunday's game at the Vikings after being limited in practice all week. McDonald didn't miss a single snap of last week's win over the Patriots, though. We'd bet on him being active this week as well but will check on his status Sunday morning.

Dolphins WR Danny Amendola (knee) is active for today’s game against the Patriots. He’s a low-end PPR option.

Dolphins WR Danny Amendola (knee) was limited in practice all week and is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game against the Patriots. New England has struggled against slot receivers this season, but Amendola would be a risky Week 14 fantasy play at less than 100%.

Dolphins lead CB Xavien Howard will likely miss Sunday's game against the Patriots because of a knee injury, according to ESPN's Cameron Wolfe. HC Adam Gase deemed Howard "week to week" in a Wednesday press conference, which generally indicates a player isn't expected to be ready for the coming game. That's bad news for the Miami pass D but good news for owners of Patriots WR Josh Gordon. We'll keep an eye on Howard's status heading into the weekend -- and then beyond.

Dolphins WR Danny Amendola (knee) is inactive for today’s game against the Bills. DeVante Parker, Kenny Stills and Leonte Carroo will serve as Miami’s top 3 WRs.

Dolphins WR Danny Amendola (knee) didn’t practice all week and is doubtful for Sunday’s game against the Bills. His absence leaves Miami with WRs DeVante Parker, Kenny Stills and Leonte Carroo.

Dolphins WR Danny Amendola (knee) did not practice on Wednesday. He got banged-up in last weekend's game against the Colts and ended up playing just 14 snaps. He seems iffy for Sunday's game against the Bills.

Dolphins WR DeVante Parker is considered "week-to-week" with a sprained AC joint in his shoulder, according to NFL Network's Tom Pelissero. Miami has a Week 11 bye, and we'll see if Parker is ready to return come Week 12. The Fins already sent WR Albert Wilson to IR, and WR Jakeem Grant is dealing with an Achilles injury. Danny Amendola, Kenny Stills and Leonte Carroo are the team's healthy WRs right now.

Dolphins WR DeVante Parker injured his shoulder in the 2nd half of Sunday's game against the Packers and is officially questionable to return. Stay tuned for an update.

Dolphins WR Jakeem Grant suffered a leg injury in the 3rd quarter of Sunday's game in Green Bay and was carted off the field. He was on the injury report this week with an Achilles issue, and it looked like this injury was related. We'll update Grant's status when we learn more.

Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill (shoulder) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Packers. He doesn't seem close to a return. QB Brock Osweiler will get another start this weekend but is just a low-end QB2. He's gone score-less in 2 straight while completing just 59% of his passes.

Dolphins S Reshad Jones pulled himself from Sunday's win over the Jets in the 1st quarter, according to ESPN's Cameron Wolfe. The team said Jones' departure was not injury related, and HC Adam Gase said afterward that he'd have to look into the situation more. Personal differences in Miami have already led to RB Jay Ajayi's midseason trade to Philadelphia last year and DT Jordan Phillips' release earlier this season. This situation will be worth watching, with a guy capable of scoring among fantasy's top DBs.

Dolphins WR Kenny Stills (groin) is active for today’s game against the Jets. His pregame warmup reportedly went better than expected. We’d still avoid Stills in Week 9 fantasy lineups, but his presence dings DeVante Parker and Jakeem Grant’s outlooks.

Officially questionable, Dolphins WR Kenny Stills (groin) is "a long shot to play" today against the Jets, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports. That would help the outlook for Miami WR DeVante Parker, he returned for a big game at Houston in Week 8. Parker's an upside option in WR4 territory this week.

Dolphins WR Kenny Stills (groin) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game against the Jets after putting in just a limited practice on Friday. Stills can’t be trusted in Week 9 fantasy lineups. If he’s active on Sunday, though, it’d put a dent in WR DeVante Parker’s value.

Dolphins WR Kenny Stills (groin) missed practice again on Thursday. He's now looking unlikely to return for this weekend's game against the Jets. That'll again leave DeVante Parker, Danny Amendola and Jakeem Grant as Miami's top 3 WRs.

Updating an earlier report, Dolphins WR Kenny Stills (groin) was listed as a non-participant in Wednesday's practice. Reporters saw him on the field in pads, but he evidently didn't do much. Stills is back to iffy for this weekend's game against the Jets. We'll get another update tomorrow.

Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill (shoulder) is out for Sunday's game against the Jets. The early rule-out suggests he's not close to returning -- although HC Adam Gase did say that Tannehill has been throwing with trainers. Brock Osweiler gets another start this weekend but is just a low-end QB2 for fantasy.

Dolphins WR Kenny Stills (groin) returned to practice on Wednesday, presumably putting him on track to play against the Jets this weekend. If that's the case, it'll be interesting to see how Miami divvies outside WR snaps between Stills, DeVante Parker and Jakeem Grant. Danny Amendola is locked in as the slot receiver and has the best matchup of the group this week.

The Dolphins have placed WR Albert Wilson on IR with his hip injury. The free-agent addition flashed big-play ability this season, averaging 15.0 yards per catch and scoring 4 times on 26 catches. He's a nice stash in dynasty leagues.
