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.

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.

Mike Gesicki, TE MIA

9:05am EST 3/8/22

Gesicki gets the tag

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that the Dolphins have placed the franchise tag on TE Mike Gesicki. That keeps him from reaching the free-agent market. Gesicki finished 9th, 7th and 12th among TEs in PPR scoring the past 3 years and should be well set up for TE1-level production for at least the near future. We'll see whether he and Miami agree to a long-term deal ahead of the season. Gesicki is a solid value in early fantasy-football drafting, carrying a TE11 ADP on Underdog.

NFL Network’s Cameron Wolfe considers Dolphins TE Mike Gesicki a “viable candidate” for the franchise tag. Gesicki, 26, just set career highs in catches (73) and yards (780). He’d surely garner plenty of interest on the open market. But the Dolphins — projected to have the most cap space league-wide — can easily retain Gesicki’s services. We’ll see if new HC Mike McDaniel considers Gesicki a fit for an offense that emphasizes blocking out of TEs/WRs.

Dolphins WR Jaylen Waddle has been placed on the COVID list. He's a long shot to be cleared in time to play vs. the Jets on Sunday. His absence would leave WR DeVante Parker and TE Mike Gesicki as the clear top 2 options in Miami's passing game -- assuming they avoid the COVID list. QB Tua Tagovailoa's Week 15 fantasy stock takes a sizable hit without Waddle.

Dolphins WR Will Fuller (finger) won't play vs. the Ravens on Thursday night, HC Brian Flores said. There's no timetable for Fuller's return. With WR DeVante Parker on IR, WR Jaylen Waddle and TE Mike Gesicki will continue to dominate Dolphins targets.

Dolphins QB Tua Tagovailoa (ribs, finger) will not start today's game vs. the Texans, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Tua reportedly didn't feel good enough during pre-game warmups to start, but he will be active as QB Jacoby Brissett's backup. It's a missed opportunity in an excellent matchup. Brissett was decent in 3 starts earlier this season, averaging 230 yards and 1.3 TDs on a 67% completion rate but just 5.8 yards per attempt. He's only in play in 2-QB and Superflex leagues and is a slight downgrade for Miami's offense.

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.
