Dolphins | Dion Sims could be used more often

Mon, 04 Aug 2014 16:40:33 -0700

Miami Dolphins TE Dion Sims could see his position strengthen in the team's offense with TE Charles Sims (knee) expected to miss some practice time with a knee injury. Offensive coordinator Bill Lazor is expected to use many two-tight end sets in the offense this year.

Fantasy Tip: Sims spent most of his rookie season blocking last year, but he has some natural pass-catching abilities, and he should see more chances to haul in the pigskin in this new, fast-paced offense with more two-tight end sets. However, he's probably not worth drafting in standard leagues unless Clay misses regular season time.

Dolphins | Dustin Keller out for season

Sun, 18 Aug 2013 08:22:11 -0700

Miami Dolphins TE Dustin Keller (knee) will miss the entire 2013 season after suffering a serious knee injury during the team's preseason game Saturday, Aug. 17.

Fantasy Tip: Keller was signed this season to be more of a receiving tight end for the team but will now have to sit out the season. Dion Sims and Michael Egnew probably are the candidates to start at tight end, but neither has much fantasy value. The team could look to add another tight end before the season starts.
