Scouting report

MIA WR Brian Hartline - Week 7, 2014 Fantasy Football Outlook

Brian Hartline - Week 7 vs. Chicago

Brian Hartline laid a big fat goose egg against the Packers last week. Not only did he not have any catches, but he also didn't receive a single target. He played on 98 percent of the team's offensive snaps, but just didn't catch the eye of Ryan Tannehill.

Hartline is averaging just 32 yards per game this season, not enough to warrant starting him on your roster.

MIA WR Brian Hartline - Week 6, 2014 Fantasy Football Outlook

Brian Hartline - Week 6 vs. Green Bay
Brian Hartline has less than 40 receiving yards in three out of his four games this season. He had success against Oakland (6-74), but he's typically not productive enough to be a great option. He's at best a WR4 in a difficult matchup this week against Green Bay.

MIA WR Brian Hartline - Week 4, 2014 Fantasy Football Outlook

Brian Hartline - Week 4 vs. Oakland Raiders
Brian Hartline caught three passes for 25 yards and a touchdown last week. The touchdown was nice, but overall Hartline has had a poor season. He's failed to pass the 40-yard mark in a game. He also has caught just 10 of his 19 targets. Mike Wallace is the only Dolphins receiver worth trusting. Hartline should be viewed as a low-end WR4 option.

MIA WR Brian Hartline - Week 3, 2014 Fantasy Football Outlook

Brian Hartline - Week 3 vs. Kansas City

After a disappointing Week 1 (2-26), Brian Hartline didn't do much to impress owners in Week 2. He was targeted eight times and caught five passes for 36 yards. In PPR it's a somewhat respectable performance, but he needs to create more with his five receptions.

Hartline gets a favorable matchup in Week 3, but his production so far makes him an undesirable option. Until he starts putting up bigger numbers, Hartline isn't worth much more than a WR4 start right now.

MIA WR Brian Hartline - Week 2, 2014 Fantasy Football Outlook

Brian Hartline - Week 2 vs. Buffalo

Brian Hartline really disappointed in Week 1. In a game where the Dolphins primarily focused on the run, Hartline finished with just 26 yards on two catches. The No. 2 WR in Miami did play on 85 percent of the team's offensive snaps, but he was only targeted four times.

The good news for Hartline is he faces an easier secondary in Week 2. Buffalo allowed four different Bears players to finish with over 70 receiving yards in Week 1.

Still, Hartline's Week 1 performance leaves much to be desired. He should be viewed as a WR4 option with a low ceiling.

MIA WR Brian Hartline - Week 1, 2014 Fantasy Football Outlook

Brian Hartline - Week 1 vs. New England

Brian Hartline has had success against New England over the previous three seasons. He's caught at least four passes in every matchup, making him fairly attractive in PPR formats.

The overall problem with Hartline is his low ceiling. It's not often Hartline will have a big performance, so expectations are always limited. He's also facing a tough New England secondary and could struggle to get open.

Hartline should be viewed as a WR4 option.

MIA WR Brian Hartline - 2014 Fantasy Football Outlook

Fantasy Upside

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.

Fantasy Downside
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.

Bottom Line
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.
