2013 Outlook: Deep-league Only

Last updated on Aug-21-2013 by Chris Weeks

Update (8/21): At this point just who starts at TE for Miami week one is anyone's guess. On Tuesday OC Mike Sherman said if the season started this week they would go with H-Back Charles Clay, using him on the line, in the backfield and split out as pass receiver. At this point (until we see how the Dolphins plan to fill the void left by Keller), it may be best to avoid Miami's tight end on draft day.

It appears the rookie out of Michigan State will start the season opposite Keller in Miami's offense. At 6'5" and 285 lbs., it is likely Sims will be used as a blocking tight end and see very little action in the passing game. Should something happen to Keller, it is more likely we would see fullback Charles Clay line up as the receiving tight end than Sims. There is little value to be had here at this time.

Update: With the injury to Tight End Dustin Keller, somebody has to step up for the Dolphins. Rookie Dion Sims makes the most sense to us to fill in for Keller. He's had a good preseason and will need to step up and fill some pretty big shoes. Other names in the mix: H-Back Charles Clay. The Dolphins have primarily been using him as a fullback so there will be an adjustment period. Second year tight end Michael Egnew disappointed the team last season must improve his run blocking or he will never find his way on the field.
