Miami Dolphins kicker Jason Sanders signed a long-term extension before the season. However, he has been off to a slow start through the first six games. To be fair, the Dolphins offense has been horrendous, which doesn't give him many chances to make field goals. In Week 6, Sanders connected on two of three field-goal attempts in the loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars. The return of quarterbackTua Tagovailoa didn't impact Sanders' fantasy value like some may have hoped. There isn't much reason to trust that the Dolphins will fix their offensive issues before their matchup with the Atlanta Falcons in Week 7.
Miami Dolphins tight end Mike Gesicki saw no shortage of targets during the Week 6 matchup against the Jacksonville Jaguars. The Dolphins were without multiple receivers, so Gesicki and Jaylen Waddle were asked to step up. Gesicki finished with eight receptions on nine targets for 115 yards in the loss. It was a slow start for Gesicki, but he has come around over the last few weeks. He'll be a fine TE1 for a favorable matchup against the Atlanta Falcons in Week 7.
Miami Dolphins wide receiver Jaylen Waddle was significantly involved in the passing attack during the Week 6 matchup with the Jacksonville Jaguars. He hauled in 10 of his 13 targets for 70 yards and two touchdowns in the loss. The Dolphins were without multiple wideouts, so Waddle saw a boatload of chances in this one. His target share is likely to decrease heading into the Week 7 matchup with the Atlanta Falcons. Waddle has seen an inconsistent amount of targets this season. Fantasy managers should monitor the health of the other receivers in Miami heading into next week. At worst, Waddle should be in the flex conversation for that matchup.
Miami Dolphins running back Salvon Ahmed has not been involved much in the offense over the last few weeks. However, he got back into the gameplan during the Week 6 matchup with the Jacksonville Jaguars. He rushed a team-high seven times for 22 yards and hauled in one reception for 15 yards in the loss. Those seven carries were the most Ahmed has seen in one game this season. Sadly, the Dolphins offensive line is one of the worst in the league right now. None of the backs in Miami are trustworthy options on a weekly basis. Ahmed isn't worth rostering in fantasy formats with Myles Gaskin and Malcolm Brown healthy.
Miami Dolphins running back Myles Gaskin put together an epic 10-catch game in Week 5, but failed to follow it up. In Week 6, Gaskin rushed five times for nine yards with two receptions for five yards in the loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars. The Dolphins couldn't get anything going on the ground. It has been that way all season and it's unlikely going to change anytime soon. Gaskin is only valuable because of his receiving ability in the backfield. Possibly, the return of Tua Tagovailoa is going to hinder Gaskin's value somewhat. Fantasy managers should put Gaskin in the flex conversation for the Week 7 matchup with the Atlanta Falcons. It's tough to trust any back in this offense on a weekly basis.
