Miami Dolphins wide receiver Kenny Stills caught two passes for 17 yards in the Dolphins' 20-12 win over the Jets in Week 2. This production is quite a letdown given his 106-yard, two touchdown performance in Week 1. That is the nature of a player like Stills, who epitomizes the term boom-or-bust. The Dolphins jumped out to a 20-0 lead in the first half and didn't need to take chances downfield, the exact type of play on which Stills thrives. He's a volatile WR2 in Week 3 against the Raiders.
Miami Dolphins wide receiver Kenny Stills is facing a favorable matchup Sunday against the New York Jets. The Jets were number 22 in pass defense DVOA last season and gave up the ninth most points to wide receivers in 2017. Stills is coming off a 106-yard, two touchdown week in Week 1 and is the Dolphins' unquestioned number one receiver. Devante Parker is questionable going into this game, but even if Parker plays it shouldn't affect Stills' value too much. He does not need many targets to have an impact. Consider Stills in the WR2 range in Week 2.
The Miami Dolphins have faith that wide receiver Kenny Stills can become a complete No. 1 option for the offense in the passing game. "We know he's a vertical threat. He showed that again, that he's still able to do that," head coach Adam Gase said. "There's [going to be] more underneath and there's [going to be] more as far as receptions per game go, to where maybe instead of four catches for 100 yards, it might end up being like seven or eight catches, where there might be a couple of shorter throws in there." However, Stills has never had more than 63 catches in a single season, and he had just four catches on five targets in Week 1 against the Titans, but he turned that into 106 yards and two touchdowns. Quarterback Ryan Tannehill sees Stills as his most trusted receiver. That's big for fantasy, and Still should remain a strong WR3 as long as Devante Parker (finger) remains out. Stills leads the NFL with 13 touchdowns of 20-plus yards since the start of the 2016 season. He has also caught 12 TDs out of the slot in the last two years, which is the most in the NFL.
