Warren Sharp’s Strength of Schedule: Warren Sharp projects the Dolphins to face the 2nd-hardest overall offensive schedule in 2019, including the No. 1 most difficult slate of pass-defenses in the league.

Must Draft

N/A

Good Values

Both Kenyan Drake and Kalen Ballage and good values at their approximate 7th and 11th Round respective ADPs. Both are passing game-oriented with Drake being the more talented player to the uber athletic Ballage. Drake only shed the walking boot, concealing his ambiguous foot injury, last week. Ballage was able to drill live 1st Team reps for the 2-ish weeks that Drake sported the boot -- valuable development time for the start of the season.

Monitor

Update 8/31/19: The trade of Kenny Stills slightly boosts the value of all pass catchers as 64 2018 targets exits the building.

With Kenny Stills likely being traded before final cuts, Albert Wilson, Jakeem Grant, Preston Williams, and (miraculously) DeVante Parker look to be the lucky four wide receivers to make the team. Wilson would be the effective No. 1, regardless of where he’s lining up. He’s the best bet to catch the majority of Ryan Fitzpatrick’s devil-may-care passes. Grant’s a one-trick deep threat while Parker’s role is anyone’s guess. Talented but off-field-troubled Williams could be the darkhorse to assume the X-receiver role as the season progresses.

Avoid

Neither Ryan Fitzpatrick nor Josh Rosen are startable fantasy assets -- unless you’re truly game to play with fire.

Mike Gesicki’s pass-catching future remains up in the air after and up-and-down preseason. He is the TE1 in Miami though.
