Draft note
by John Paulsen
Gesicki finished the season strong, averaging 4.0 catches for 46 yards and 0.56 touchdowns on 7.1 targets per game in his final nine games. This increase in production corresponded with Preston Williams' injury (in Week 9), so there is some concern that Williams' return will depress Gesicki's targets. Gesicki only saw 3.9 targets per game in the eight games with Williams and was only targeted on 12.0% of Ryan Fitzpatrick's pass attempts while Williams was active versus 17.7% after Williams' injury. Per PFF, he led the league in the percentage of his routes ran out of the slot, which indicates that Miami sees him as more of a receiver than a true tight end. He was also fourth in air yards at his position, further proof that the team sees him as a downfield threat.

MIA TE Mike Gesicki - 2020 Fantasy Football Outlook

Fantasy Upside
Mike Gesicki showed promise in his second season, finishing 51-570-5 on 89 targets, all second-best numbers for Miami in 2019. He especially came on strong late, outscoring all but seven tight ends over the final seven weeks. Miami didn’t make any major changes to receivers this offseason, so expect Gesicki to be third in the receiving order behind DeVante Parker and Preston Williams. Gesicki turns 25 this year, which is the age where we typically see tight ends peak.

Fantasy Downside
Most of Gesicki’s production last year came after injuries to Dolphins receivers. Miami lost Williams and Jakeem Grant in the second half of the season, forcing Gesicki into a larger role. With those players coming back, and the arrival of running back Matt Breida, we could easily see Gesicki’s targets go down. Gesicki only averaged 5.5 targets per game last season with a 57.3% catch percentage, so he really can’t afford to see fewer targets in 2020.

2020 Bottom Line
Once you get outside of the elite tight end options, there are a few players who offer some intrigue, and Gesicki is one of them. He’s more of a receiving threat than a blocking tight end, and could spend some time in the slot in Chan Gailey’s offense. He’s an interesting player, but shouldn’t be viewed as someone you want to start every week. He should be seen as a late-round flier in leagues where you can start multiple tight ends.
