2021 Outlook
Depth Chart
The Dolphins used the sixth overall pick in the 2021 NFL draft to take wide receiver, Jaylen Waddle from the University of Alabama. Nagging leg injuries forced Waddle to miss half of the season last year, while fellow first-round pick DeVonta Smith went nuclear on opponents en route to winning the Heisman Trophy.

A comparison of the two players based on a college production is no contest, as Smith had more receiving touchdowns last year than Waddle had in three seasons with the Crimson Tide.

Yet it was Waddle who went higher than Smith in the draft due to his larger frame and elite bust/speed metrics.

Most rookie wide receivers not named Justin Jefferson struggle in their first season as they get acclimated to the speed of the NFL. We anticipate this could be the case with Waddle, especially as the likely third receiving option for Tua behind DeVante Parker and Will Fuller.

If you use a late-round pick on Waddle, do so with the intention of being patient. Miami starts with a pair of tough matchups against the Patriots and Bills, two teams with top 10 defenses. Waddle will likely start slowly, but he could be a nice play in late-September and October with matchups against the Raiders, Jags, and Falcons.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury DeVante Parker downgraded to Doubtful
Suffered a setback with his hamstring injury
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Nov 5, 11:04 am

Miami Dolphins
Brian Flores said WR DeVante Parker (hamstring) suffered a setback this week in practice and is doubtful to play Sunday vs. Texans. No Will Fuller either. Tua Tagovailoa has a banged up finger on his throwing hand suffered vs. Bills, but Flores is optimistic that Tua will play. (Cameron Wolfe on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Parker returned from his hamstring injury in Week 8 posting a 8-85 line against the Bills on 11 targets. With Parker out, the Dolphins will once again likely focus on Jaylen Waddle and TE Mike Gesicki as their main pass catching weapons. Both are viable plays in a good matchup against Houston.

Injury Sterling Shepard, DeVante Parker Out for Week 7
Evan Engram, Julio Jones active

Miami Dolphins
Actives/Inactives: - #Packers' Preston Smith and Kevin King are out. - #Jets LB CJ Mosley is out. - #Giants WR Sterling Shepard is out, TE Evan Engram is up. - #Patriots LB Dont’a Hightower is out. - WFT CB Will Jackson is out. - Julio Jones is up, MIA’s DeVante Parker is out. (Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: With Shepard out, the Giants will be relying on Darius Slayton, John Ross and Engram in the passing game. The Dolphins will feature Jaylen Waddle, Preston Williams and tight end Mike Gesicki against the Falcons.

Miami Dolphins
Dolphins’ WR Devante Parker has been downgraded to out for today’s game vs. the Bucs. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: With Parker and Will Fuller out, the Dolphins will likely be relying on Jaylen Waddle and TE Mike Gesicki in the passing game. Waddle is nice salary relief on DraftKings at $4800.

Will Fuller out for Week 2 due to personal matter
Timetable for return is unclear
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Sep 17, 11:30 am

Miami Dolphins
Dolphins wide receiver Will Fuller won't play in Sunday's game against the Bills and his absence for personal reasons is indefinite. "He's dealing with a personal issue," Dolphins coach Brian Flores said Friday. "I've had multiple conversations with him the last couple of days. He is definitely dealing with a personal issue. I respect his privacy. I ask that everyone respects his privacy. We support Will. And we'll take it one day at a time." (Palm Beach Post)

FFToday's Take: This sounds like Fuller could miss multiple weeks but we just don't have a clear timeline as of now. He was getting ready to make his debut after coming off suspension in Week 1. For the time being the Dolphins will press forward with DeVante Parker and Jaylen Waddle as their top two wideouts.
