  • Mike Gesicki Factored Out Off Dolphins' Offense Sunday

    Miami Dolphins tight end Mike Gesicki was a non-factor against the Houston Texans in Week 12. The 27-year-old was unable to haul in his lone target, meaning he finished without a catch for the first time this season. It has been a frustrating year for Gesicki, to say the least. He has just 24 catches for 269 yards and is extremely touchdown dependent, failing to amass more than 5.7 fantasy points during each of the eight games in which he has not caught a touchdown pass. He can be left on waivers in most redraft formats going forward.

  • Mike Gesicki Lacks Fantasy Appeal Following Bye Week

    Miami Dolphins tight end Mike Gesicki is not worth starting in fantasy football this week. Gesicki's Week 12 opponent is the Houston Texans, who have posted middle-of-the-pack numbers against tight ends this season. Since he is extremely touchdown dependent (he has failed to amass more than 5.7 fantasy points during each of the seven games in which he has not caught a touchdown pass), Gesicki can be avoided in most fantasy leagues this week. There's just too much risk associated with starting the 27-year-old.

  • Mike Gesicki Catches Just Two Passes Sunday

    Miami Dolphins tight end Mike Gesicki was unimpressive against the Cleveland Browns in Week 10, catching just two passes for 31 yards. He is extremely touchdown dependent and has failed to amass more than 5.7 fantasy points during each of the seven games in which he has not caught a touchdown pass. Consider Gesicki a mid-to-low TE2 when the Dolphins return from bye in Week 11.

  • Mike Gesicki Lacks Fantasy Appeal In Week 10

    Miami Dolphins tight end Mike Gesicki produced quite different results between 2021 and 2022. Last year's TE9, Gesicki has proven to be enormously touchdown dependent this season. In fact, he has failed to amass more than 5.7 fantasy points during each of the six games in which he has not catch a touchdown pass. This might not be awful news if the Dolphins' opponent, the Cleveland Browns, struggled against tight ends. However, they have allowed the seventh-fewest fantasy points to tight ends, as well as the absolute fewest fantasy points to tight ends in the red zone. With Gesicki's red zone productivity expected to be hindered by the Cleveland secondary, fantasy managers should view the 27-year-old as nothing more than a low-end TE2 in Week 10.

  • Mike Gesicki An Afterthought Against Bears

    Miami Dolphins tight end Mike Gesicki underwhelmed against the Chicago Bears in Week 9, hauling in just one of two targets for three yards. Gesicki has disappointed this season, and his fantasy success has been incredibly dependent on scoring touchdowns. Going forward, he is nothing more than a low-end streamer, and a risky one at that.

  • Mike Gesicki Likely Touchdown Dependent In Week 9

    Miami Dolphins tight end Mike Gesicki's Week 9 fantasy value could hinge on his ability to find the end zone. Although Gesicki is averaging 14.5 fantasy points over the last three weeks, he is largely touchdown-dependent. In fact, Gesicki has yet to amass more than 5.7 fantasy points during a game in which he does not catch a touchdown pass. To make matters worse, Chicago's defense has allowed 9.5 fantasy points and 0.2 touchdowns per game to tight ends this season, putting them in the top quartile of the league. Miami's wide receivers and running backs have much more favorable matchups, so look for them to be prioritized while Gesicki could disappoint. You can probably find a better tight end to plug into your lineups this week.

  • Packers Could Trade For A Tight End

    The Green Bay Packers solution at wide receiver could end up being to trade for another tight end, according to a source. Miami Dolphins tight end Mike Gesicki could be available, but he might not be a good fit in head coach Matt LaFleur's offense. Denver Broncos tight end Albert Okwuegbunam is another name to watch. He's been a healthy scratch each of the last two games after rookie Greg Dulcich made his NFL debut. Injuries in Green Bay to Randall Cobb (ankle), Allen Lazard (shoulder) and rookie Christian Watson (hamstring) have made it more likely that the Packers will make a move to add a pass-catcher on offense. Another name to monitor is Arizona Cardinals veteran wideout A.J. Green, who hasn't been a factor in the desert.

  • Mike Gesicki Trending Up At The Moment

    Miami Dolphins tight end Mike Gesicki has seen his stock rise after commanding 14 targets over the course of his last two games. This newfound role led to him amassing 69 yards and two touchdowns two weeks ago, then adding another 27 receiving yards on Sunday. He hasn't put himself in the TE1 tier, but there's an opportunity for him to finish as a TE2 or better this time around. He can be streamed if you're in a pinch.

  • Mike Gesicki Targeted Seven Times In Win

    Miami Dolphins tight end Mike Gesicki hauled in three of seven targets for 27 yards during Sunday night's win over the Pittsburgh Steelers. Just one week removed from a 69-yard, two-score outing, Gesicki came back down to earth. However, his role remained solid; he averaged just 2.4 targets per game over the first five weeks and 7.0 targets per game over the last two weeks. This increased role isn't quite enough to justify rushing to the waiver wire for Gesicki, but he does have some streaming appeal in deeper formats.

  • Mike Gesicki Still Hard To Trust In Week 7

    Miami Dolphins tight end Mike Gesicki is coming off a huge game, but he's still hard to trust in fantasy football. Although Geiscki's performance last Sunday saw him total six catches, 69 yards, and two touchdowns, it will be hard for him to replicate that against the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 7. The return of Tua Tagovailoa (head) does not correlate to Gesicki's success, which seems to be quite hit-or-miss at the moment. Another good week would propel him back into fantasy relevance, but for the time being, Gesicki can be left on waivers in plenty of redraft leagues.

  • Dolphins Willing To Entertain Mike Gesicki Trade Offers

    Expectations were high for the Dolphins’ passing attack this season, in no small part due to the arrivals of wideout Tyreek Hill and head coach Mike McDaniel. A familiar face in the team’s offense has taken a back seat, however, leading to his name being included in trade talk. Tight end Mike Gesicki has gone from one of the unit’s […]

  • Dolphins Listening On Mike Gesicki

    The Miami Dolphins are in the "we're willing to listen" phase with tight end Mike Gesicki, according to sources, but they aren't quite shopping him to other teams. Gesicki does have three touchdowns (two in Week 6) in the first three games, but he's underused in head coach Mike McDaniel's offense. He has 15 receptions through the first six weeks after catching 73 passes in 2021. Team executives aren't really interested in taking on his $10.9 million franchise tag and find it odd that the Dolphins placed the tag on him in March to sit him on the bench. Perhaps the 27-year-old's six-catch, 69-yard, two-touchdown performance in the Week 6 loss to the Minnesota Vikings will interest more tight end-needy clubs.

  • Mike Gesicki Scores Twice In Week 6 Loss

    Miami Dolphins tight end Mike Gesicki hauled in six of seven targets for 69 yards and two touchdowns against the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday. After an incredibly underwhelming five-week period, the tight end bounced back in a big way in Week 6. Unfortunately for Gesicki and fantasy managers invested in his production, his value will likely decline once again when Tua Tagovailoa re-claims the starting quarterback job next week and chooses to prioritize Tyreek Hill and Jaylen Waddle.

  • Mike Gesicki Should Be Avoided In Week 6

    Miami Dolphins tight end Mike Gesicki is not on the fantasy radar ahead of his Week 6 clash against the Minnesota Vikings. With Miami onto its third-string quarterback, Tyreek Hill and Jaylen Waddle hogging targets in the passing game, and Gesicki downright struggling, the tight end should be benched or dropped in most formats. There's no reason to believe that his production will improve against a Vikings defense that has allowed just one touchdown to tight ends through five weeks.

  • Mike Gesicki Catches 30-Yard Pass In Week 5

    Miami Dolphins tight end Mike Gesicki turned two targets into one catch for 30 yards against the New York Jets on Sunday afternoon. Despite his low volume, the 27-year-old posted the second-most receiving yards among Miami players. The Dolphins' offense struggled as a whole, partly due to the quarterback situation. Second-string quarterback Teddy Bridgewater was forced out of action due to a head injury, prompting Miami to turn to third-string rookie Skylar Thompson. Between poor quarterback play and heavy competition in the passing game, Gesicki significantly lacks fantasy appeal. He can be dropped in most leagues.

  • Mike Gesicki Not A Stable Option In Week 5

    Miami Dolphins tight end Mike Gesicki should be avoided in most fantasy leagues this week. The 27-year-old has amassed just eight catches for 71 yards and a touchdown, and he's at least third in the pecking order behind receivers Tyreek Hill (quadriceps) and Jaylen Waddle (groin). Additionally, Teddy Bridgewater is in line to start for the Dolphins, weakening the overall state and upside of the offense. Of course, if Hill or Waddle miss Sunday's game against the New York Jets, Gesicki's fantasy value will rise. After all, he's a talented player, but the opportunities simply aren't there. For the time being, Gesicki should be viewed as a fringe top-24 tight end in fantasy football.

  • Mike Gesicki Hauls In Two Passes Thursday

    Miami Dolphins tight end Mike Gesicki hauled in two of four targets for 23 yards against the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 4. This was his second-most productive game of the year. Gesicki's lone fantasy-relevant game came in Week 2 when he caught a touchdown. With so many mouths to feed in Miami, Gesicki has occupied a small snap share and therefore does not have a major role in the passing game. He is droppable in most redraft leagues.

  • Mike Gesicki - Week 4 Outlook For Fantasy Football

    Miami Dolphins tight end Mike Gesicki has underwhelmed in fantasy football this season but will look to get back on track against the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 4. The 26-year-old has totaled just six catches, 48 yards, and one touchdown through three games, but he could see an uptick in targets if either Jaylen Waddle (groin) and Cedrick Wilson Jr. (ribs, toe) is unable to suit up. Additionally, the Bengals have been successful against wide receivers but struggled against tight ends. In fact, Cincinnati has allowed the fourth-most yards (222) and sixth-most receptions (18) to tight ends in 2022. It's tough to trust Gesicki after two of his first three games were severely underwhelming, but he certainly has a favorable matchup on tap. He could sneak into the low-end TE1 tier if Waddle or Wilson can't suit up Thursday.

  • Mike Gesicki - Week 3 Outlook For Fantasy Football

    Miami Dolphins tight end Mike Gesicki has suddenly become an inconsistent fantasy play following the emergence of Tyreek Hill and Jaylen Waddle. Gesicki totaled just one yard in Week 1 but then bounced back for 41 yards and one score last Sunday. On one hand, Gesicki could be completely overshadowed by the Dolphins' brilliant receivers this week. On the other hand, he could be a key piece in Miami's offensive game plan, especially if the team falls behind early. All in all, he should be viewed as a low-end TE1 this week.

  • Mike Gesicki Catches Touchdown In Week 2

    Miami Dolphins tight end Mike Gesicki hauled in all four of his targets for 41 yards and one touchdown during Sunday's comeback win over the Baltimore Ravens. He certainly bounced back following his one-yard effort against the Patriots last Sunday. Despite playing in an offense that centers around Tyreek Hill and Jaylen Waddle, Gesicki should be viewed as a borderline top-12 tight end in fantasy football going forward.

  • Mike Gesicki Underwhelms In Week 1 Outing

    Miami Dolphins tight end Mike Gesicki hauled in his lone target for just one yard during a Week 1 victory over the New England Patriots on Sunday. His lack of involvement wasn't a major surprise considering Miami's weapons and New England's strong safety room, but his final stat line was still lower than expected. Next up for Gesicki: a clash with a Ravens defense that allowed four catches, 14 yards, and one touchdown to Jets tight ends this week.

  • Mike Gesicki - Week 1 Outlook For Fantasy Football

    Miami Dolphins tight end Mike Gesicki heads into the 2022 season with a clear grasp of the No. 1 position on the depth chart. He totaled 73 catches, 780 yards, and two touchdowns last season before the Dolphins franchise tagged him. Now, he is widely viewed as a low-end TE1 entering 2022, having seen his value drop slightly in the wake of the Tyreek Hill trade. Furthermore, with a matchup against the New England Patriots on tap, Gesicki could be in for an underwhelming finish. The Patriots have one of the best safety units in football, led by Kyle Dugger, who posted a 73.7 coverage grade (PFF) last season and surrendered just one catch on two targets last time he played Miami. Dugger could hinder Gesicki all game long, dropping him to the TE2 range for this contest.

  • Dolphins Deny Mike Gesicki Trade Rumors

    Miami Dolphins general manager Chris Grier said the team received calls from two teams about tight end Mike Gesicki, but the Dolphins were not shopping him. Gesicki's fantasy stock has fallen considerably this summer with rumors that he hasn't been a great fit in new head coach Mike McDaniel's offensive scheme. Apparently the Dolphins want to use the 26-year-old more as a blocker, which isn't great news for his fantasy ceiling in an offense that added target hog Tyreek Hill in the offseason. Gesicki should be the No. 3 aerial option for quarterback Tua Tagovailoa behind Hill and second-year wideout Jaylen Waddle. If the Dolphins involve Durham Smythe more alongside Gesicki, it will be hard to trust Gesicki as a TE1 in fantasy.
