Miami Dolphins quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick has been better than quarterback Josh Rosen at organized team activities this week, according to a player that didn't want to speak publicly. However, Rosen has played well and Fitzpatrick threw two interceptions at practice on Tuesday. Rosen is doing his best work in the middle of the field and had good red-zone numbers with Arizona in his rookie season, but he also has remained inconsistent in practices. Miami has an open competition at QB this summer, but Rosen should win the job and start in Week 1. A change of scenery should be good news for him, but he'll be nothing more than a low-end QB2 that needs to prove himself.
Miami Dolphins wide receiver Devante Parker was excellent in red-zone drills at organized team activities this week, catching multiple passes. The new coaching staff and receivers coach Karl Dorrell are trying to use positive reinforcement with Parker, who has responded well to the approach. The 26-year-old is being given a second chance under the new coaching staff after struggling with injuries, drops and just poor overall play after being the 14th overall pick in the 2015 draft. Parker had only 24 receptions for 309 yards and a touchdown in 11 games last year and hasn't gone over 57 catches or four touchdowns in any season in his four years. Most fantasy owners will continue to write him off, but he could be worth a late-round flier if he continues to look good in 2019.
Miami Dolphins wide receiver Jakeem Grant (Achilles) is taking part in organized team activities this week and looks good. Grant had surgery in the offseason but will be fine for training camp and the regular season. The 26-year-old has 34 receptions for 471 yards and four touchdowns in 42 games over his three seasons with the Dolphins. He'll be a long shot for fantasy relevance behind Devante Parker, Kenny Stills and Albert Wilson in 2019.
Free-agent running back Mark Walton is trying out with the Miami Dolphins during their rookie minicamp. The four-round pick of the Bengals in 2018 was cut this offseason due to off-field issues. The 22-year-old had 14 carries for 34 yards (2.4 average) and no touchdowns in his rookie season. He'd be nothing more than depth for the Dolphins and can be ignored in all fantasy leagues if he signs in Miami.
The Miami Dolphins signed cornerback Xavien Howard to a record five-year, $76.5 million contract extension on Thursday, according to sources. It makes him the highest paid corner in NFL history and also includes $46 million guaranteed. Howard has been to one Pro Bowl after being taken in the second round by Miami in 2016. He had 35 tackles, one fumble recovery, seven interceptions and 12 passes defensed in 12 games last year for the Dolphins. He's one of the best cornerbacks in the league and is the heart and soul of Miami's secondary.
