The Miami Dolphins are replacing Damien Williams with Frank Gore. The former Colts RB signed a one-year deal with the Dolphins.

Fantasy Impact:

Gore will team up with Kenyan Drake to form a 1-2 duo at the RB position. Gore has spent the last three seasons of his career in Indianapolis and finished as the No. 18 scoring RB in PPR leagues last season. He's someone you might consider targeting as an RB2/RB3 option in drafts later this summer.

Chiefs sign RB Damien Williams

The Chiefs are adding to their running back stable by adding former Dolphins RB Damien Williams on a one-year deal worth $1.5 million.

Fantasy Impact:

Fantasy players will recall Williams as standing in the way of Kenyan Drake last season following the team trading Jay Ajayi to the Dolphins. Williams eventually suffered a season-ending shoulder surgery. He will most likely find himself third or fourth on the pecking chart in Kansas City—they already have Kareem Hunt, Spencer Ware, and Charcandrick West rostered.

Miami Dolphins release DT Ndamukong Suh

The Dolphins are parting ways with Ndamukong Suh, even though he still has years left on a big-time deal that was supposed to be for six years and be worth $114 million. The release will cost the Dolphins $22.2 million in cap penalties. Since joining the Dolphins, Suh accumulated 15.5 sacks and 181 total tackles. He shouldn't be out of work for long.

WR Danny Amendola to sign with the Miami Dolphins

Danny Amendola will stick around the AFC East... except it will be as a member of the Miami Dolphins.

Fantasy Impact:

The soon-to-be 33-year-old WR will join the third team of his career and become part of a revamped WR corps in Miami that traded Jarvis Landry but signed Albert Wilson.

Injuries have played a part in Amendola's career, having never started more than eight games in a season, but when healthy he can play an important role in a team's offense. He has caught 60 or more passes in four of his nine seasons and finished as the No. 43 scoring fantasy receiver in PPR leagues last season.

Albert Wilson to sign with Miami Dolphins

Ian Rapoport - [Full Article]

Ian Rapoport reported that Albert Wilson plans to sign a three-year deal worth $24 million with the Miami Dolphins as soon as free agency opens.

Fantasy Impact:

#BertAlert -- the former Chiefs receiver was the No. 59 scoring fantasy receiver last season in a crowded offense full of pass-catching weapons. Wilson set career-highs in targets (62), catches (42), yards (554), and touchdowns (3), and will look to continue his breakout in a Dolphins offense that just shipped off its previous top WR in Jarvis Landry.

Browns trade for WR Jarvis Landry, QB Tyrod Taylor

Friday, March 9, 2018, 7:05pm

Chicago Tribune - [Full Article]

Two people familiar with the trade say the Cleveland Browns have agreed to acquire quarterback Tyrod Taylor from the Buffalo Bills in exchange for a third-round draft pick.

The Browns were expected to target a quarterback in free agency but instead have landed the dynamic Taylor, who will likely take over as Cleveland starter. The Browns are still expected to take a quarterback with the No. 1 overall pick in this year's draft.

Earlier, the Browns worked out a trade with Miami for three-time Pro Bowl wide receiver Jarvis Landry. The Miami Dolphins have agreed to trade the Pro Bowl receiver to the Browns for two draft picks, a person familiar with the deal said Friday.

Fantasy Impact:

Likely out of the Kirk Cousins sweepstakes, the Browns have elected to trade for a solid starter in Taylor and will likely pick a quarterback early in the 2018 NFL Draft. Taylor's presence will allow the Browns to be patient with their young quarterback, whoever it is. The Landry trade hurts his fantasy stock since his role was well defined in Miami, though he should still be a fantasy starter, especially in PPR formats. The Browns now have a receiving corps of Landry, Josh Gordon and Corey Coleman to go along with athletic tight end David Njoku. In Miami, Landry's departure opens up 161 targets, so depending on what the Dolphins do in free agency and the Draft, DeVante Parker and Kenny Stills could see a big uptick in usage.

Dolphins place franchise tag on WR Jarvis Landry

Wednesday, February 21, 2018, 6:02pm

NFL.com - [Full Article]

Despite months of little-to-no movement on contract negotiations, Jarvis Landry has often stated his desire to stay in Miami.

The Dolphins used their lone tool to wipe away negotation-driven stress -- at least in the immediate future -- and ensure Landry won't be lured away from Miami, placing the franchise tag on the receiver on Tuesday, the team announced.

NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported the tag will pay Landry approximately $16 million and is non-exclusive, meaning he's able to negotiate with other teams, but would cost an outside suitor two first-round draft picks for the right to sign him.

A trade involving Landry is very much still a possibility. The team reportedly dangled the wideout in trade talks before the 2017 season, giving legs to the idea.

At this stage, it's not entirely certain he plays in Miami in 2018 or beyond. What Miami did on Tuesday was ensure it wouldn't watch Landry walk away for nothing in March at the start of free agency.

Fantasy Impact:

Working backwards over the last three years, Landry has finished No. 4, No. 13 and No. 11 in PPR formats and No. 11, No. 16 and No. 17 in standard leagues. If he remains in Miami, his role won't change much and he'll be a good bet for 100+ catches again in 2018.

Miami Dolphins name Dowell Loggains offensive coordinator

Friday, January 19, 2018, 4:18pm

NFL.com - [Full Article]

Loggains was recently with the Chicago Bears, where he served as the team's quarterbacks coach for one season before being promoted to the role of offensive coordinator. He was named the OC in Chicago, replacing Adam Gase, who moved on to coach the Dolphins. The duo worked together in Chicago and are now reunited in Miami. Previous Dolphins OC, Clyde Christensen, has been reassigned to the role of director of football and player development.

Packers hire Joe Philbin as offensive coordinator

Thursday, January 11, 2018, 9:42am

CBS - [Full Article]

News broke Wednesday afternoon that the Packers will hire former Dolphins coach Joe Philbin, who spent nine years working for the Packers before going to Miami, as their offensive coordinator.

Philbin started in Green Bay in 2003 as an assistant offensive line coach, and eventually worked his way up to being the team's offensive coordinator. He served in that role from 2007 through 2011 before going to Miami. He lasted four years with the Dolphins before being replaced by Adam Gase, and has spent the last two seasons working as an assistant head coach and offensive line coach with the Colts.

During his time as Green Bay's OC, the Packers routinely had offenses that ranked near the top of the league in yards, points, and Football Outsiders' offensive DVOA.

Fantasy Impact:

Mike McCarthy is likely to keep the play-calling duties.

Dolphins hire Dowell Loggains as offensive coordinator

Thursday, January 4, 2018, 11:39am

NFL.com - [Full Article]

Dowell Loggains found a soft landing spot with a friend after being dismissed from the Chicago Bears.

NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported Wednesday night that the Miami Dolphins are naming Loggains their new offensive coordinator, per a source informed of the situation.

Loggains worked with Dolphins coach Adam Gase in Chicago during the latter's one year as offensive coordinator of the Bears. Loggains was promoted from QB coach to OC after Gase left for Miami.

Fantasy Impact:

This won't change things much in Miami since Adam Gase is still expected to oversee the offense and call the plays.

Bills RB LeSean McCoy (ankle) hopes to play

Monday, January 1, 2018, 9:27am

NFL.com - [Full Article]

LeSean McCoy will battle to get ready for the Buffalo Bills first playoff game of since Jan. 8, 2000.

The running back was carted off in the third quarter of the Week 17 win over the Miami Dolphins with a sprained ankle.

NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported Monday morning that McCoy has a chance to play in Sunday's playoff game, but would likely be gimpy and not be 100 percent if he's able to give it a go.

Fantasy Impact:

The story went on to say McCoy will get round-the-clock treatment on the ankle in hopes to get on the field Sunday afternoon in Jacksonville. Rapoport noted that playing in the Sunday game -- as opposed to the Saturday matchup -- helps McCoy's chances of returning for the postseason.
