It’s never too early to talk fantasy football. While hopefully I can begin to cure my fantasy football addiction shortly by starting to form and research on player rankings, for now its time to take an early look at some Dolphins players that might have some fantasy implication. The Dolphins aren’t really considered one of the major contributors to the fantasy world, the might be some hidden gems on this roster.

Here is a look at which Dolphins players might have fantasy relevance.

QB position

Matt Moore/ David Garrard – In standard leagues with one QB, neither guy would make a fantasy football roster regardless of which guy becomes the Dolphins starters. Neither guy has put up stellar fantasy numbers in the past and now is no time to count on either of these guys.

Ryan Tannehill – While his fantasy value for this year is very limited as he might be holding a clipboard all year, there is some potential value there for keeper leagues.

Running Backs

 

Reggie Bush – Bush enjoyed a career year last year and he promises to be in the hunt for the rushing title this year. While that may be an unattainable goal, Bush should be a hot commodity in fantasy leagues especially those that are PPR. Bush has top 10 RB value in PPR leagues and probably will rank around 14-16 in standard leagues.  Bush might see some looks at WR which would also boost his value.

Daniel Thomas –Last year he was a fantasy football disappointment and we cant promise you to expect any better this year especially with the Dolphins drafting Lamar Miller.  However Thomas is worth a roster spot and potentially is a very late round flyer.

Lamar Miller – The book is not out yet on Miller as it is probably too early to project his fantasy impact yet. That being said coach Philbin is said to be very impressed with Miller so far in camp.

Wide Receiver

Davone Bess – Bess certainly has value in PPR leagues, and he should benefit from Brandon Marshall’s departure, he is a WR3 by most standards and could bump up to be a low to high end number WR2 should he prove to be the top target in Miami.

 

Brian Hartline – Hartline is probably the player who will benefit the most from Marshall’s departure. That being said just because he will start does not equate automatic production. Hartline should only really be seen as a W3 going into the season, however there is potential for better production this year.

Roberto Wallace/Rishard Matthews/ BJ Cunningham/ Nanne – None of these players are even draft able however with the Dolphins weak WR core one could even land up being the team’s WR1 by seasons end, who knows !

Tight Ends

Anthony Fasano – While I wouldn’t suggest drafting Fasano unless desperate in the late rounds, he already has a nice connection with Matt Moore and could have a productive season this year.

Egnew/Clay – Neither player at the moment would crack a fantasy football roster.

 

As you can see the Dolphins offense isn’t exactly loaded with fantasy studs.
