Dolphins' Jakeem Grant: Downplays Achilles tightness Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grant's battled some Achilles tightness during Thursday's preseason game against the Ravens, but he downplayed the severity of the ailment during his postgame interview, Adam Beasley of 790 The Ticket reports.

Grant played sparingly Thursday, catching one of two targets for 12 yards before leaving with a tight Achilles. Fortunately, it does not sound as though this will be an injury that causes Grant to miss any additional game time. That said, Grant only has two more preseason games left to work his way up the Dolphins receiving depth chart.

Dolphins' Damien Williams: Gets five touches
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams had four carries for 11 yards and one reception for three yards (on three targets) in Thursday's preseason loss to Baltimore.

Jay Cutler played two drives, with Jay Ajayi handling the first and Williams the second. Kenyan Drake (concussion) was unavailable as a result of a collision at Monday's practice, but he could still push Williams for the No. 2 role if he gets healthy in the next couple weeks. Drake primarily is valued for his speed and his potential as a receiving threat, while Williams is more of a well-rounded back without any standout trait. The latter's experience and size suggest he's the better option in pass protection, which often is the determining factor in this sort of battle. In any case, Ajayi will dominate carries (and possibly targets) so long as he stays healthy.

Dolphins' Jay Ajayi: Makes brief appearance
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ajayi lost two yards on two carries and gained 11 yards on one reception in Thursday's preseason game against Baltimore.

After clearing the last stage of the concussion protocol at the beginning of the week, Ajayi opened Thursday's game with three consecutive touches and then had a 19-yard gain on a 3rd-and-26 wiped out by a penalty. He only played the opening drive, giving way to Damian Williams for the second series of the night. It'll be interesting to see if Ajayi handles passing downs in Miami's third preseason game, as the team has talked about getting him more involved as a receiver this year. Williams and Kenyan Drake (concussion) are both at least competent in that regard, but neither is a proven standout.

Dolphins' Julius Thomas: Returns from back injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thomas (back) caught his only target for a two-yard gain in Thursday's preseason game against the Ravens.

Though he didn't get a target from starter Jay Cutler, the veteran tight end at least proved he's recovered from the back injury that caused him to miss practice time earlier in the week. Thomas may only be fourth or fifth in line for targets on a team featuring the impressive wideout trio of Jarvis Landry, DeVante Parker and Kenny Stills.

Dolphins' DeVante Parker: Stays busy with Cutler
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Parker caught one pass for 16 yards on four targets in Thursday's preseason game against the Dolphins.

Parker was targeted on three of Jay Cutler's six pass attempts, and it would've been four of seven if not for a holding penalty that wiped out a 31-yard connection. The switch from dump-off artist Ryan Tannehill to the more aggressive Cutler could end up helping Parker, who's produced 15.1 yards per catch and 8.8 per target on limited volume (4.9 targets per game) through two seasons. Cutler won't necessarily share Tannehill's preference for peppering Jarvis Landry with short passes.
