2010 NFL Preview: Miami Dolphins

Jun 17, 2010

The Dolphins made big noise this offseason by landing Brandon Marshall. He has a chance to have the biggest impact of any player switching teams for the 2010 season.

Fantasy Playoffs Schedule:  Favorable
Sure the take on the Jets in Week 14, but if you can survive that game, it’s smooth sailing. They finish with two home games against the Bills and the Lions.

Five Star Fantasy Options
Brandon Marshall – Some people don’t care for Marshall, but they most likely haven’t been a Marshall owner the past three years. The Broncos switched from Jay Cutler to Kyle Orton and he didn’t miss a beat. Chad Henne has a big arm, and could lead Marshall to another monster year.

Four Star Fantasy Options

Three Star Fantasy Options
Chad Henne – Henne was solid in his first NFL action this year, and with new weapon Brandon Marshall at his disposal, Henne has a chance of being a low end QB1 or a solid QB2.

Ronnie Brown – I’m a bigger fan in Brown than most. He is a super talented RB. His main problem is staying healthy. When he plays, he’s quite effective. Right now I consider him a low end RB2 or a high end RB3.

Two Star Fantasy Options
Ricky Williams – I’m loving the resurgence of Ricky’s career. He had 1121 yards and 11 TDs last year. He is 33 so don’t get too excited. He’s still the backup RB when Ronnie Brown is healthy. That said he’s a decent source for RB depth.

Davone Bess – He’s going to catch a lot of passes, so he should definitely be on the radar for those in PPR leagues. In standard leagues he’s nothing more than bench depth.

Dolphins Defense/Special Teams – Right off the bat I can tell you I like the fantasy playoffs matchup.They also play the Bills in Week 1, Raiders in Week 12, and Cleveland in Week 13. Fortunately their second meeting with New England is in Week 17.

One Star Fantasy Options
Greg Camarillo – He has great hands, but given the priority of the running game, along with Marshall and Bess, I’m not too concerned about losing out on Camarillo.

Brian Hartline – He’ll need an injury along the way to become fantasy relevant.

Anthony Fasano – He caught just 31 passes for 339 yards and a pair of scores. This after posting a line of 34-454-7. He’s a backup/spot starter at best.
