Brian Hartline led the Dolphins in both receptions (76) and receiving yards (1,016) last season. He also had a healthy 134 targets, only behind Mike Wallace’s 142. It was his second consecutive season with at least 70 catches and 1,000 yards.
Here’s a fun fact for Hartline: Only nine WRs have 128 or more targets in each of the last two seasons. That list includes Calvin Johnson, A.J. Green, Brandon Marshall, Dez Bryant, Vincent Jackson, Demaryius Thomas, Larry Fitzgerald, Andre Johnson and Hartline.
There’s nothing particularly sexy about Hartline. He doesn’t typically have explosive games, and he rarely finds the endzone. He only has five games over 100 yards in the last two seasons and has just five touchdowns.
Hartline is a bye week fill-in. He’s an unexciting pick on draft day because he’s not a WR who is going to win your championship. You know what you’re getting when you draft Hartline. He’s a decent late-round pick.
