Draft note
by John Paulsen
Gesicki finished No. 7 last year, but the Dolphins added Will Fuller and Jaylen Waddle in the offseason, so his targets are under serious pressure. The good news is that Gesicki’s production increased with Tua Tagovailoa at quarterback–6.2 targets per game vs. 5.0 with Ryan Fitzpatrick at quarterback–though the Dolphins were pretty decimated at receiver by that point in the season. Looking at their offseason moves, the Dolphins are signaling that they might throw the ball more, which would help everyone involved.

Scouting report

MIA TE Mike Gesicki - 2021 Fantasy Football Outlook

Fantasy Upside
Mike Gesicki had a career year in 2020 despite a rotation of quarterbacks, setting highs in receptions (53), yards (703) and touchdowns (6). His strong year led him to finish as the No. 7 scoring tight end in fantasy (half-PPR). Gesicki also had slightly better numbers with Tua Tagovailoa at QB in 2020, so their connection will continue in this upcoming season.

Fantasy Downside
Gesicki’s 2020 season only really got going later on in the year when the Dolphins had a number of injuries at receiver. In the first half of the season, Gesicki finished four games with one reception or less. The Dolphins not only have those receivers healthy for this year, but they also added in Will Fuller and Jaylen Waddle.

2021 Bottom Line
We’re expecting numbers closer to Gesicki’s 2019 season when he finished as the No. 11 scoring tight end rather than his improved 2020 season when he finished 7th. The injuries to wide receivers late in the season helped boost Gesicki’s totals, and the arrival of two-star receivers will bring his numbers back down in 2021. Still, tight end is a shallow position and Gesicki has enough talent and opportunity to finish as a top 10 scorer at tight end this season.
