Tom Pelissero - [Full Article]

The Dolphins are closing in on a new two-year contract with WR DeVante Parker, per league source. Chance for former first-round pick to capitalize on high potential with a new regime.

Fantasy Impact:

This is surprising as it seemed that Parker's career had run its course in Miami. There's a new regime in town and he has a chance for a fresh start.

Dolphins plan to hire Packers’ run game coordinator/inside linebackers coach Patrick Graham as their defensive coordinator, per source.

Fantasy Impact:

Of course, the Dolphins’ hiring cycle is frozen due to Patriots’ LB coach Brian Flores preparing for Super Bowl LIII, Schefter went on to say. Flores is set to become the Dolphins next head coach after the Patriots Super Bowl run ends in two weeks.

NFL Beat: Nine veteran, rookie QBs likely available in 2019

USA Today - [Full Article]

Among the veteran QBs USA Today predicts to be available to change teams for the 2019 season are: Nick Foles, Joe Flacco, Teddy Bridgewater, Eli Manning and Ryan Tannehill, while rookies like Daniel Jones, Drew Lock, Dwayne Haskins and Kyler Murray could make impacts as well.

Fantasy Impact:

The story went on to list where the author feels they would all be perfect fits for the 2019 season. The new NFL league year doesn't begin until March 13 with the start of free agency, but, it never hurts the dedicated fantasy player to start scouting before that. The story added five teams brought in first-round passers in 2018, but there's obviously always a need for a quarterback, and all the players listed above could have fantasy impacts.

Jets hire Adam Gase as head coach

Thursday, January 10, 2019, 12:04am

ESPN - [Full Article]

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. -- The New York Jets are expected to hire Adam Gase as their new head coach, sources told ESPN's Adam Schefter and Jeff Darlington.

The Jets reached out to Gase soon after he was fired by the Miami Dolphins on Dec. 31. He was only 23-25 in three seasons, but he dominated the Jets, winning five of six meetings.

Gase would become the Jets' first head coach since Bill Parcells (1997) with NFL head coaching experience. He would fill the need for an offensive-minded coach, something they haven't had since Rich Kotite (1995-1996). Gase is also expected to be the Jets' primary playcaller.

Fantasy Impact:

Dowell Loggains is expected to serve as Gase's offensive coordinator though Gase will continue to call plays. After a couple of great seasons as the OC in Denver with Peyton Manning, Gase served as the OC in Chicago (21st in yards, 23rd in points) before three seasons as head coach of the Dolphins (24th/17th, 25th/28th, 31st/26th). He may have more luck in New York with a good young QB in Sam Darnold to build an offense around.

Dolphins HC Adam Gase fired Monday

Monday, December 31, 2018, 11:26am

ESPN - [Full Article]

Adam Gase on Monday was fired as coach of the Miami Dolphins after three seasons, and the team will begin a search to find the franchise's fourth full-time coach this decade.

The Dolphins announced general manager Chris Grier will be promoted to oversee football operations, while Mike Tannenbaum will be reassigned to another position. The next coaching hire will report directly to Grier -- and not owner Stephen Ross, as had been the case with Gase.

Fantasy Impact:

Gase couldn't escape the mediocrity that has followed the Dolphins since 2000. He finished 23-25, with his lone playoff game being a wild-card loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers in 2016. A rumor that the trust between Gase and Ross had eroded recently.

Dolphins will start Ryan Tannehill at QB Week 17

Monday, December 24, 2018, 1:07pm

Armando Salguero on Twitter - [Full Article]

Adam Gase says Ryan Tannehill is the starter versus Buffalo.

Fantasy Impact:

Those who follow the team believe the Dolphins will move on from Tannehill at the end of this year, so it's perhaps a little surprise they will close out the year with Tannehill as the starter.

Dolphins RB Kalen Ballage (hip) took full practice reps all week. He was removed from the injury report so he’s good to go. Frank Gore is out for the remainder of the year, and it was Ballage—not Kenyan Drake—who took over as Miami’s primary runner last week against the Vikings, gaining 123 yards and a touchdown on 12 carries. He caught 64 passes in his final two seasons at Arizona State, so he’s a capable receiver as well. The matchup against the Jaguars isn’t great, though Jacksonville has yielded 160 yards rushing in six away games while giving up just 90 yards rushing in eight home games this season. Drake (shoulder) took full practice reps all week and will play on Sunday. But it doesn’t look like he’s going to lead this backfield in touches, even with Frank Gore out.

Friday, December 21, 2018, 6:10pm

Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette (foot) took full practice reps all week. He was removed from the injury report so he’s good to go. Fournette will be fine to face the Dolphins but given his limited Week 15 workload, he’s no longer a no-brainer fantasy RB1.
