View TE Fantasy Rankings »

What You Need to Know:

  • Gesicki appeared in all 17 games last year, setting career highs in catches per game (4.3) and targets per game (6.6). He saw a solid 18.7% target share.
  • He finished as a top-12 PPR TE 5 times. He was held without a catch in 2 games.
  • On the year, Gesicki ranked as the TE9. His upside was capped by only 2 total TDs.
  • Gesicki wasn’t particularly efficient alongside Tua Tagovailoa, ranking 14th among 25 TEs with 50+ targets in yards per route run (1.45).
  • In March, Miami applied the franchise tag to Gesicki. As of late-May, no long-term deal has been signed.
  • The 2022 offseason brought the arrival of Tyreek Hill, Cedrick Wilson and Chase Edmonds. Miami also re-signed blocking TE Durham Smythe to a 2-year deal.
  • Gesicki played only 7.4% of his snaps in-line last year, and new HC Mike McDaniel places a premium on blocking from all of his pass-catchers. Gesicki’s never excelled in that area.
  • The Fins are expected to roll out a balanced offense, meaning Gesicki probably won’t have the benefit of boosted pass volume.
  • Dolphins TE Mike Gesicki admitted that HC Mike McDaniel’s offense has him blocking more than in past seasons.

Draft Sharks Bottom Line:

At best, Gesicki looks like the distant #3 option behind Tyreek Hill and Jaylen Waddle. And that’s in an offense with suspect pass volume — plus a questionable upside on 3rd-year passer Tua Tagovailoa.

With a target dip upcoming, Gesicki’s efficiency will need to rise in order to become a true TE1 difference-maker. Odds are, though, that Gesicki will remain a fantasy spot-starter with a wide range of weekly outcomes.

Tua Tagovailoa, QB MIA

9:35am EDT 10/24/22

Tagovailoa decent in win

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 TE Mike Gesicki erupted for 6-69-2 against the Vikings in Week 6. He saw just a 14.8% target share, but he benefited from 47 team pass attempts while Miami played from behind. Gesicki’s usage was encouraging beyond the targets, as he earned a ~77% route rate. This was simply his best game of the season, but we’re not ready to elevate him into the TE1 mix after one productive outing. He’ll likely rank as a low-end TE2 for Sunday’s matchup with Pittsburgh. Look for Tua Tagovailoa to return for that one.

Dolphins TE Mike Gesicki managed 1 catch for 1 yard on 1 target in Sunday's win over New England. Everything reported and witnessed through camp and preseason pointed to alarming change in his role under new HC Mike McDaniel, and this game seemed like confirmation. Gesicki shouldn't be near fantasy football lineups until something changes. He even trailed TE Durham Smythe in targets (2) and yards (14).

Dolphins TE Mike Gesicki rotated with 2 teammates during 1st-team work in the preseason finale vs. Philadelphia. Durham Smythe led the position in snaps across the 1st 3 drives, while Gesicki led TEs in pass routes, according to Pro Football Focus. Cethan Carter also worked in for 2-TE sets, playing 7 such snaps to Gesicki's 5. For the preseason, PFF counted 24 "inline" snaps for Gesicki vs. 14 in the slot, 4 split wide and 1 at FB. That's 55.8% of his snaps inline, compared with the 85% he spent in the slot or out wide last season. The 1 thing that does seem clear with Gesicki is that we should expect his 2022 role to look a lot different than it has to this point -- which doesn't bode well for his receiving production. Gesicki has been a faller in our TE rankings.

Pro Football Focus' Doug Kyed reports a league source told him the Dolphins have "brought up" TE Mike Gesicki in trade talks with other teams. Such a move would make sense for Miami, with Gesicki set to play on the franchise tag and seemingly about to play out of position as an in-line TE. Gesicki has operated much more as a slot receiver thus far in his career and looks much better suited for that type of role. Given the reports this preseason on his deployment as a blocker, a trade would probably be good for Gesicki's 2022 fantasy outlook. We'll see if something materializes.

Dynasty Write-up
Gesicki was nothing more than a volume-based fantasy spot-starter in 2021. 2022 brings more target competition (Tyreek Hill) and the arrival of offensive-minded HC Mike McDaniel. Currently, Gesicki is slated to play this season under the franchise tag.
