Against the Dolphins in the second meeting last year, Pats HC Bill Belichick decided the one thing he needed to shut down was tight end Charles Clay.

The Patriots bracketed and sometimes double-covered Clay in that second meeting. Clay had caught seven passes for 97 yards and two touchdowns against the Steelers the week before the New England game. He caught one pass for six yards against the Patriots.

Fantasy Impact:

If that's the direction the Pats go, Dolphins OC Bill Lazor expects WRs Mike Wallace and Brian Hartline and Brandon Gibson to step up if the Patriots decided to erase Clay. The Pats were actually the 6th best team allowing fantasy points to TEs last year, so it wasn't just Clay they shut down last season. Clay ranks 13th on our TE list for Week 1, and owners should be aware it could be a long day for Clay.

Dolphins TE Charles Clay 'ready to pick up where he left off'

Sun-Sentinel - [Full Article]

Anytime Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill needed someone to bail the offense out on third down TE Charles Clay was the playmaker he turned to. Clay, who produced a breakout season last year, catching 69 passes for 759 yards and scoring a team-leading seven touchdowns, appears ready to pick up where he left off in 2013. Clay hopes another productive season will land him the lucrative contract extension he seeks.

Fantasy Impact:

Along with Delanie Walker, Clay is a cheap option at tight end who should offer baseline (top 12) numbers in the later rounds.

"He wants to play fast," Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill said of new OC Bill Lazor, who is widely credited for the emergence of Nick Foles, who led the league in passer rating and set an NFL record for touchdown-to-interception ratio (27:2). "I think that's his biggest point at this time is just getting to the line, playing fast, putting pressure on the defense. We're going to huddle. We're going to take our time in that standpoint, but once we break we want to put pressure on the defense."

Fantasy Impact:

If Lazor is half as successful as Chip Kelly was in his first year calling plays in the NFL, then the Dolphins will have several fantasy relevant players on the roster. Tannehill, Mike Wallace, Brian Hartline, Charles Clay and Knowshon Moreno are players to monitor this summer.

Mike Wallace enjoying the flexibility of new offense

Monday, June 2, 2014, 7:31pm

Miami Herald - [Full Article]

Impressive day for Ryan Tannehill, who threw two touchdowns to Mike Wallace, a dart in the middle of the end zone to Brian Hartline for a touchdown and another great throw that should have been a touchdown to Charles Clay (who dropped it). He threw one interception (to Jimmy Wilson) but also wisely threw the ball away when nothing was there.

Wallace, as we wrote a couple times last week, is in clearly better spirits. One reason is that he loves Bill Lazor’s offense and the flexibility it gives him to change where he lines up.

Mike Sherman wouldn’t permit him to do that last year, and Wallace said today that as a result, opposing defenses knew exactly where he was going to be.

Fantasy Impact:

Wallace finished the season as the #25 WR, but was an unreliable option for most of the year. Thanks to four touchdowns in his final six games, he averaged 10.8 FP in that span, which equates to low-end WR1-type numbers. We're not expecting that kind of production, though he should be a top-end WR3 if his late season surge continues into this season. The arrival of OC Bill Lazor should help.

Browns TE Jordan Cameron (concussion, out) missed practice all week and is out for Week 16. With Cameron out, Delanie Walker, Martellus Bennett, Dennis Pitta, Charles Clay, Andrew Quarless, Marcedes Lewis and Ryan Griffin are currently ranked as the top plug-and-play options.

Browns TE Jordan Cameron (concussion) missed practice again Thursday. Cameron is looking very iffy for Week 16. Owners should have a Plan B in place. Delanie Walker, Martellus Bennett, Dennis Pitta, Charles Clay, Marcedes Lewis, Tim Wright and Andrew Quarless are currently ranked as the top plug-and-play options.
