Dolphins lock up QB Ryan Tannehill through 2020

Monday, May 18, 2015, 7:50pm

USA Today - [Full Article]

The Miami Dolphins announced Monday they've signed Ryan Tannehill through the 2020 season.

It’s a four-year, $77 million extension on top of the two years and $18.255 million Tannehill had remaining on his rookie deal, a person informed of the contract's details told USA TODAY Sports.

The deal includes $45 million in guarantees, said the person, who was not permitted to speak publicly since the team did not release financial details of the contract.

Fantasy Impact:

In his first three seasons, Tannehill finished #24, #16 and finally #9 in quarterback scoring. That’s a nice trend. The Dolphins spent the offseason trying to upgrade his weapons, and ended up with Jordan Cameron at tight end to go along with Kenny Stills, DeVante Parker and Greg Jennings at receiver. Sure, they traded away Mike Wallace, but that trio (and the emerging Jarvis Landry) should be able to offset that loss. If healthy, Cameron should also be an upgrade on the departed Charles Clay. Tannehill has a good coordinator in Bill Lazor and host of weapons to utilize. He looks like a very safe pick in the 9th round.

Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (shoulder, elbow) should be ready for training camp

Tuesday, May 5, 2015, 10:36am

PFT - [Full Article]

The Bengals drafted a pair of tight ends over the weekend, but it doesn’t look like concerns about Tyler Eifert’s recovery from shoulder and elbow surgeries was the impetus to double down on the position.

Eifert said Monday that he’s waiting to get full clearance to return from his shoulder injury, a torn labrum that he had repaired after dislocating his elbow in the first game of last season. He expects to get that clearance before the start of training camp and is working to rebuild his strength until then.

Fantasy Impact:

With Jermaine Gresham out of the way, Eifert should be a nice late-round pick provided he can stay healthy. He has good size and speed, and showed pretty good hands as a rookie. He only played about 60 percent of the snaps in 2013, and averaged 0.14 FP (PPR) per snap. Extrapolate the same production to 90 percent of the snaps (which is typical for a starting tight end), and Eifert shouldn't have any problem posting top 15 numbers. With solid improvement, he could very well be this year's Jordan Cameron (2013) or Travis Kelce (2014).

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

Tuesday, April 14, 2015, 10:12pm

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).

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 and Jordan Cameron, but Landry's role should expand as well. He only played 62 percent 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.

Browns sign TE Rob Housler

Thursday, April 9, 2015, 2:50pm

ESPN - [Full Article]

The Cleveland Browns are getting tight end help, signing Rob Housler to a one-year deal on Thursday.

Housler, 27, recorded 84 catches and 871 yards from 2012 through 2013, but he saw limited targets in 15 games for the Arizona Cardinals last season, with only nine receptions and 129 yards.

Housler has one career touchdown in 55 games. He has elite speed for his position, recording a 4.46-second 40-yard dash at the 2011 NFL combine, helping him secure a third-round selection in that year's draft.

Fantasy Impact:

The Browns were in need of help at the position after Jordan Cameron signed a two-year deal with the Miami Dolphins earlier this offseason. The Browns' current depth chart at tight end also includes Jim Dray and Gary Barnidge, who combined for 30 catches and 398 yards and zero touchdowns, so Housler has a chance to emerge as the team's TE1. This isn't likely to make him a fantasy starter, however.

Dolphins moving on from TE Charles Clay

Thursday, March 19, 2015, 11:39am

Adam Schefter, Twitter - [Full Article]

Dolphins are NOT matching 5-year, $38 million offer sheet that Buffalo gave TE Charles Clay, per sources. Bills have a new TE.

Fantasy Impact:

He'll join a receiving corps that already includes Sammy Watkins and Percy Harvin, so targets may be tough to come by, especially when the Bills go run-heavy under OC Greg Roman and HC Rex Ryan. Roman's (lack of) usage of Vernon Davis while with the 49ers is not a good sign for Clay. In Miami, Jordan Cameron gets a boost as the Dolphins' primary tight end. Clay was #10 in targets per game (6.0) last season. Cameron could be even more involved than Clay.

TE Charles Clay signed an offer sheet with the Bills

Tuesday, March 17, 2015, 7:32pm

Vic Carucci, Twitter - [Full Article]

The Bills have given an offer sheet that Charles Clay has signed. The Dolphins have 5 days to match.

Fantasy Impact:

The deal is reportedly worth $38 million over five years with $20 million guaranteed. Clay's targets would be affected if he stayed in Miami after the Dolphins signed Jordan Cameron. If he ends up with the Bills, he'll join a receiving corps that already includes Sammy Watkins and Percy Harvin, so targets may be tough to come by, especially if the Bills go run-heavy under OC Greg Roman and HC Rex Ryan. Roman's (lack of) usage of Vernon Davis while with the 49ers is not a good sign for Clay.

Dolphins trade WR Mike Wallace to the Vikings

Friday, March 13, 2015, 7:26pm

Adam Schefter, Twitter - [Full Article]

Vikings traded 5th-round pick to Miami for WR Mike Wallace and 7th-round pick, per league source.

Fantasy Impact:

Starting with the Dolphins, this news is good for Jarvis Landry and the newly acquired Kenny Stills and Jordan Cameron since Wallace's 7.2 targets per game are now up for grabs. In Minnesota, Wallace will likely start opposite Charles Johnson with Greg Jennings serving as the team's WR3. (Fantasy owners should not expect much from Cordarrelle Patterson in 2015.) We're wary any time a receiver changes teams, especially when he's not getting a promotion, which is the case here with Wallace. The acquisition is good news for Teddy Bridgewater, who averaged a solid 15.0 FP after his Week 10 bye. Those are QB2-type numbers, so with a year under his belt and Wallace in the mix, Bridgewater should be a good QBBC/streaming option in his second season.

Not so fast: TE Jordan Cameron signs with the Dolphins

Thursday, March 12, 2015, 9:15pm

Adam Schefter, Twitter - [Full Article]

And now the Dolphins have announced they signed former Browns TE Jordan Cameron.

Update: The deal is for $15 million over two years, which is what the Browns reportedly offered. Cameron wanted out of Cleveland.

Fantasy Impact:

Miami is a better landing spot than Cleveland. After finishing #5 in 2013, Cameron only posted 2.4 catches per game last season and finished #24 in standard formats. His targets dropped from 7.9 to 4.8 per game, which didn't make much sense since the Browns were without Josh Gordon for most of the season. He should see an increase in targets since the Dolphins gave Charles Clay 6.0 T/G in 2014 and 6.2 T/G over the last two years. Clay finished #13 in PPR PPG, and Cameron is probably an upgrade as a receiver. He’s a real threat to finish in the top 10 if he stays healthy. (Concussions are a concern.)

Browns, Josh McCown agree to terms on a three-year deal

Friday, February 27, 2015, 7:03pm

Cleveland.com - [Full Article]

The Browns agreed to terms with Josh McCown, 35, on a three-year deal Friday after a bidding war between the Browns and Bills, who are now coached by Ryan.

McCown's signing decreases the chances that the Browns will re-sign Brian Hoyer, who's gone 10-6 for them over the past two years, including 7-6 this season.

Fantasy Impact:

McCown will likely serve as the veteran competition for Johnny Manziel. With the loss of Josh Gordon (suspension) for the year and the likely departure of Jordan Cameron via free agency, this is shaping up as one of the worst passing games in the league.

'Very good possibility' Bengals move on from TE Jermaine Gresham

Sunday, February 8, 2015, 11:26am

Bengals.com - [Full Article]

Bengals.com writer Geoff Hobson on the team's TE situation: It looks like there is a very good possibility they won’t re-sign Jermaine Gresham, but it’s not a pass catcher they need to replace. They’ve got that in Tyler Eifert. They’re going to need a big guy that can block the tall, lean, big pass rushers like Terrell Suggs. Gresham did a good job with that and I suspect they’ll have an easier time finding that guy in free agency rather than the draft. The guy won’t be the target that Gresham is, but they’ll still be able to play double tight end sets.

Fantasy Impact:

If Gresham is out of the way, Eifert should be a nice late-round pick provided he can stay healthy. He has good size and speed, and showed pretty good hands as a rookie. He only played about 60 percent of the snaps in 2013, and averaged 0.14 FP (PPR) per snap. Extrapolate the same production to 90 percent of the snaps (which is typical for a starting tight end), and Eifert shouldn't have any problem posting top 15 numbers. With solid improvement, he could very well be this year's Jordan Cameron (2013) or Travis Kelce (2014).

Browns unsure of seriousness of Johnny Manziel's hamstring injury

Sunday, December 21, 2014, 8:10pm

ESPN - [Full Article]

Cleveland Browns quarterback Johnny Manziel left Sunday's game against the Carolina Panthers late in the first half with a hamstring injury and did not return.

Panthers safety Colin Jones hit Manziel by the sideline on a designed quarterback run. Manziel got up and headed back toward the huddle but quickly fell back down. Trainers examined his hamstring for a few minutes on the field and a few minutes on the sideline before taking him into the locker room for halftime.

Manziel said he first hurt himself on a play from the previous drive, a third-and-1 slant route to Josh Gordon that was reviewed and overturned. Manziel fell on the throw and "felt a little tight in my hamstring" when he got up. The injury worsened after the first-down run on the next series.

Manziel is considered questionable for Sunday's finale against Baltimore. Coach Mike Pettine said after the loss he wasn't sure of the severity of the injury.

Fantasy Impact:

Brian Hoyer took over at quarterback and finished with 134 yards on 7 of 13 passing with one touchdown and one interception. The scoring pass was an 81-yard bomb to tight end Jordan Cameron that put the Browns ahead 13-10 in the fourth quarter. The Panthers, however, emerged with a 17-13 victory. Manziel came out after halftime with a towel over his head. Hoyer would play in Week 17 if Manziel is unable to go. The game is at Baltimore.

Friday, December 5, 2014, 6:38pm

Browns TE Gary Barnidge (rib, out) missed practice all week and is out for Week 14. Jim Dray would likely draw the most work if Jordan Cameron is also out.

Friday, December 5, 2014, 6:38pm

Browns TE Jordan Cameron (concussion, questionable) took limited practice reps all week and is questionable for Week 14. Cameron is meeting with an independent doctor on Friday hoping to get cleared for Week 14. He’s worthy of a dart throw given the current state of the tight end position.

Thursday, December 4, 2014, 5:59pm

Browns TE Jordan Cameron (concussion) took limited practice reps again Thursday. Cameron seems to be getting closer to a return, but we won’t know for sure until later in the week.

Wednesday, December 3, 2014, 6:30pm

Browns TE Jordan Cameron (concussion) took limited practice reps Wednesday. Cameron seems to be getting closer to a return, but we won’t know for sure until later in the week.
