The Patriots aren’t making any promises when it comes to wide receiver Reggie Wayne’s role on the team or even that he’ll have a role on the team come the regular season, but the list of players standing between him and a roster spot got shorter on the day he agreed to join the team.

Brandon Gibson was placed on injured reserve with a knee injury and Brian Tyms will join him as long as a team doesn’t pluck him off waivers. The Patriots waived Tyms with the injury designation on Monday because of a foot injury suffered during last week’s practices with the Saints.

Tyms made the team off a strong preseason last year and played 11 regular season games and one playoff game after serving a four-game PED suspension to start the year. He caught five passes for 82 yards and a touchdown and also played on special teams.

Fantasy Impact:

Tyms and Gibson were both vying for spots on the Patriots receiver depth chart behind Brandon LaFell, Julian Edelman and Danny Amendola. That’s what Wayne will be doing in New England as well with Aaron Dobson, Josh Boyce and Chris Harper now looking like his chief competition, the story said. However Dobson is another WR with injury issues right now.

Patriots WR Brandon Gibson has been placed on injured reserve after he suffered a knee injury against the Saints on Saturday. Gibson would have been one of the receivers competing with Wayne for a spot behind Julian Edelman, Brandon LaFell and Danny Amendola.

Gibson signed with the Patriots this offseason after catching 59 passes for the Dolphins over the last two seasons. He suffered a torn patellar tendon after catching 30 passes in his first seven games with Miami in 2013 and was released for cap reasons early in the offseason.

Fantasy Impact:

The Patriots added wide receiver Reggie Wayne to the roster early on Monday. Wayne will now vie for snaps with Aaron Dobson, Josh Boyce and Brian Tyms, the story said.

Julian Edelman leaves practice early

WR Julian Edelman was present at the beginning of the New England Patriots' fifth training camp practice, but the receiver walked off early in practice, before any drills, and did not return.

Brian Tyms went down in the endzone during a contact drill midway through practice, suffering what appeared to be an upper-body injury. Tyms remained on the field for several minutes while teammates Jonas Gray, Aaron Dobson and Brandon Gibson took a knee next to him. He was later carted off the field.

Fantasy Impact:

There was no other information on Edelman. The Tyms situation obviously seems more serious and we'll keep you updated.

Philbin: New WRs better fit for Ryan Tannehill

The Miami Dolphins overhauled their wide receiver group this offseason, with the exception of promising second-year player, Jarvis Landry. Mike Wallace, Brian Hartline, and Brandon Gibson are all out of Miami, and have been "replaced" by Greg Jennings, Kenny Stills, and DeVante Parker.

Three new receivers, three better fits for Ryan Tannehill, according to head coach Joe Philbin. He is confident the trio of Jennings, Stills, and Parker are better for Tannehill than the previous trio of Wallace, Hartline, and Gibson.

"I do think it’s a better skill set to match [Tannehill]," Philbin told the Palm Beach Post.

Fantasy Impact:

As expected, first-round pick DeVante Parker should be a big part of the offense this season. Philbin had great things to say about Stills' speed and called Parker and Jennings QB-friendly guys. A combination of these three receivers, plus Landry, the story said, should give Tannehill the weapons he needs. Add in newly-acquired tight end Jordan Cameron and the Dolphins look like a dangerous offense. As a result, Tannehill finds himself ranked 10th on our QB list. If he can produce QB1 numbers, he could be a real steal with an ADP of the ninth round in 12-team leagues.

Dolphins WR Jarvis Landry working on straight line speed

Thursday, July 9, 2015, 11:44pm

Miami Herald - [Full Article]

While most NFL players are vacationing this month, Dolphins receiver Jarvis Landry and his buddy and former LSU teammate, Odell Beckham Jr. (the NFL offensive Rookie of the Year) are pushing themselves through grueling morning workout at well-regarded trainer Pete Bommarito’s Performance Systems facility in Davie.

Landry is determined to improve his speed to prove he’s more than a slot receiver.

Is his speed better? “Absolutely,” Landry said this week. “I can’t wait to show it.”

Landry flashed that explosiveness when he caught a deep ball from Ryan Tannehill during the Dolphins’ minicamp last month.

“You can see the difference with Jarvis,” Bommarito said. “There’s a difference between straight line speed and football speed. He’s excelled at both.”

Fantasy Impact:

Landry was the #42 WR in standard formats and #30 in PPR, so as a high-volume slot receiver, he's going to have more value in PPR formats. The Dolphins lost four of their top six most-targeted players: Mike Wallace, Charles Clay, Brian Hartline and Brandon Gibson. They have been replaced by Kenny Stills, Greg Jennings, DeVante Parker and Jordan Cameron, but Landry's role should expand as well. He only played 62% of the snaps on the season, and didn't start playing consistent starter's snaps until Week 9. Over the final nine weeks, Landry was the #15 WR in PPR formats (and #23 in standard). He is currently the 24th WR off the board in early PPR drafts.

'Good chance' that Dolphins WR Jarvis Landry has a breakthrough season

Sun-Sentinel - [Full Article]

Dolphins beat writer Chris Perkins believes that WR Jarvis Landry is the player most likely to have a breakthrough season in 2015:

A breakthrough season would be improving on the 84 receptions for 758 yards and 5 TDs he had last year as a rookie. There’s a good chance that happens now that TE Charles Clay and WRs Mike Wallace, Brian Hartline and Brandon Gibson are gone. Tannehill is familiar with Landry, and Landry showed he’s got good NFL skills. He’s got good hands and can get YAC (Yards After Catch).

The Patriots have signed former Dolphins WR Brandon Gibson on a one-year deal worth $825,000

Fantasy Impact:

Gibson is hoping to jumpstart his career a la Brandon LaFell. He'll provide depth behind LaFell and Julian Edelman.

Change is coming for the Dolphins at the receiver position. Miami was ranked 17th in passing with 233.1 yards per game last season, and the immediate futures of several veterans are in question. Starting receiver Brian Hartline and slot Brandon Gibson could be salary-cap casualties due to their $5.95 million and $3.26 million salaries, respectively. The Dolphins must also decide what to do with No. 1 receiver Mike Wallace, who is due $9.9 million. Wallace was benched in the second half of Miami’s Week 17 loss to the New York Jets due to venting his frustration. It remains to be seen if both sides stay together or part ways. Either way, the Dolphins need to have a strong group of receivers around quarterback Ryan Tannehill, who is entering his fourth season.

Mike Wallace unsure of future with Dolphins

Tuesday, December 30, 2014, 10:14am

Whether he was benched or benched himself on Sunday, Mike Wallace left a bitter taste with the Miami Dolphins heading into this offseason.

Fellow wideout Brandon Gibson told reporters that Wallace was frustrated with "not being involved as much as he wanted" in the offense. But will he be involved at all going forward?

Wallace told reporters Monday that he wants to return after signing a five-year, $60 million contract in 2013, but he isn't certain the team wants him around.

"I'm not the general manager or anything, or the head coach," Wallace said, per the South Florida Sun Sentinel. "I'm not sure."

Coach Joe Philbin -- who will be back -- was noncommittal about the future of his top pass-catcher, saying Monday: "Nothing has changed right now. I haven't spent one second thinking about 2015 yet."

Fantasy Impact:

Wallace enjoyed his best season in Miami under play-caller Bill Lazor, piling up 73 catches for 930 yards with five touchdowns. He went out of his way, though, to voice displeasure with the scheme after calling out Mike Sherman's attack the previous season.
