  • Jaylen Waddle Produces Five Catches Versus Houston

    Miami Dolphins wide receiver Jaylen Waddle hauled in five of 10 targets for 85 yards during Sunday's win over the Houston Texans. The second-year receiver had a solid performance but was unable to find the end zone as most of Miami's scoring came through the rushing attack or defensive turnovers. He ranks as a high-end WR2 heading into a competitive matchup against the 49ers next week.

  • Jaylen Waddle A Borderline WR1 On Sunday

    Miami Dolphins wide receiver Jaylen Waddle remains a fantastic option in fantasy football as he takes on the Houston Texans in Week 12. The Dolphins are coming off their bye, and Waddle will look to pick up right where he left off. The 24-year-old has caught 27 passes for 474 yards and three touchdowns over his last five games, ranking as the WR3 (in half-PPR) during that span. The second-year wideout has proven that he can co-exist alongside Tyreek Hill, and that should hold true on Sunday against Houston. Start him with full confidence.

  • Jaylen Waddle Turns In Four Catches During Sunday's Win

    Miami Dolphins wide receiver Jaylen Waddle hauled in four of five targets for a team-high 66 yards during Sunday's victory over the Cleveland Browns. In a game where quarterback Tua Tagovailoa spread the football around, Waddle emerged as the Dolphins' leading pass-catcher. He has been incredibly productive this season, tallying 878 receiving yards and six touchdowns. He remains a must-start when Miami returns from its bye in Week 12.

  • Jaylen Waddle Rounds Out WR1 Tier In Week 10

    All signs point to Miami Dolphins wide receiver Jaylen Waddle enjoying a big game against the Cleveland Browns on Sunday. The second-year Alabama product has functioned as the No. 2 behind Tyreek Hill this season, but you wouldn't be able to tell based on his numbers. Waddle has amassed 47 catches, 812 yards, and six touchdowns so far, ranking him as the overall WR5 in PPR formats. Now, he'll go up against a Browns secondary that is truly pedestrian. Cleveland has allowed the ninth-most touchdowns, 17th-most yards, and 17th-most fantasy points to wide receivers in 2022. While Cleveland is well rested coming off its bye, Waddle is a unique beast. Incredibly worthy of his 85.1 PFF receiving grade (ninth-best in NFL), Waddle finds himself ranked inside the fantasy WR1 tier once again this week.

  • Jaylen Waddle Stays Hot, Scores In Week 9 Win

    Miami Dolphins wide receiver Jaylen Waddle turned seven targets into five catches, 85 yards, and one touchdown against the Chicago Bears in Week 9. The Dolphins' passing offense continued to impress on Sunday and Waddle was a key reason why. The second-year wideout has complemented Tyreek Hill quite nicely, and the two have quickly formed the best wide receiver tandem in the entire NFL. Fantasy managers should view Waddle as a WR1 against the Cleveland Browns next week.

  • Jaylen Waddle Poised For Massive Week

    Miami Dolphins wide receiver Jaylen Waddle could deliver enormous production against the Chicago Bears on Sunday. In addition to his constant must-start role in fantasy football, Waddle is a top candidate to occupy your DFS lineups and bet slips in Week 9. The second-year receiver is coming off a game in which he produced 106 yards and two touchdowns. His matchup this coming Sunday? Rookie cornerback Kyler Gordon, whose 46.2 PFF coverage grade ranks 75th out of 81 cornerbacks with at least 175 snaps. He has also allowed the most receptions (39) and yards (496) of any cornerback in the entire NFL. All in all, not only are Gordon's stats woefully bad, but they're going to get even worse when he faces off against Waddle, PFF's eighth-highest-graded receiver. This is truly a matchup made in heaven for the Alabama product. Go crazy getting Waddle into all of your lineups and prop bets this week.

  • Jaylen Waddle Puts In A Full Practice

    Miami Dolphins wide receiver Jaylen Waddle (shoulder) was able to practice in full on Wednesday. Waddle has been limited in practice to begin the week recently, so he appears to be getting close to full health heading into a Week 9 matchup against the Chicago Bears on the road. The 23-year-old second-year wideout has topped 100 yards receiving four times this year, including in two of the last three weeks, and has found the end zone five times in eight games in 2022. The presence of All-Pro Tyreek Hill hasn't hurt his fantasy value like many were worried about, and he remains a must-start this weekend. Waddle is the WR4 in half-point PPR leagues at this juncture.

  • Jaylen Waddle A Flashy Option In Week 8

    Miami Dolphins wide receiver Jaylen Waddle is poised for a potentially big game against a susceptible Detroit Lions defense on Sunday. The 23-year-old wide receiver faced some adversity earlier this season but has bounced back, catching 10 passes for 207 yards over the course of his last two games. Tua Tagovailoa has shown that he can allocate significant volume to both Waddle and Tyreek Hill. Fantasy managers should consider the former a strong WR2 option for the time being.

  • Jaylen Waddle Limited On Wednesday

    Miami Dolphins wide receiver Jaylen Waddle (shoulder) was limited in Wednesday's practice. The second-year wide receiver has started out the week labeled as questionable, but there is a decent shot that he will be ready for Week 8. Waddle dealt with the same shoulder issue leading up to Miami's Week 7 matchup against the Pittsburgh Steelers, and he continued to be a major factor in their offense. Keep an eye on Waddle's status as the week progresses, but this report shouldn't worry fantasy managers as of now.

  • Jaylen Waddle Leads Dolphins In Receiving Yards Sunday

    Miami Dolphins wide receiver Jaylen Waddle hauled in four of five targets for 88 yards against the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 7. He led his team in receiving yards during the victory. After a brief hiatus from fantasy success, Waddle has returned to the WR2 tier and is a must-start in most leagues going forward. He has a favorable matchup against the Detroit Lions on tap in Week 8.

  • Jaylen Waddle Active Against Pittsburgh

    Miami Dolphins wide receiver Jaylen Waddle (shoulder) is officially active for Sunday's game versus the Steelers. Waddle was considered questionable heading into this one after practicing in a limited capacity throughout the week. The 23-year-old had a stellar Week 6 showing against the Vikings, finishing with six catches for 129 yards. With Tua Tagovailoa (concussion) back in the lineup, Waddle's ceiling is higher than it's been in quite some time.

  • Jaylen Waddle An Intriguing WR2 On Sunday

    Miami Dolphins wide receiver Jaylen Waddle has established himself as a high-end WR2 in fantasy football ahead of Week 7 versus the Pittsburgh Steelers. When Teddy Bridgewater and Skylar Thompson took their first reps with the offense, Waddle struggled. However, he bounced back last Sunday, catching six passes for 129 yards. Moving forward, Waddle's stock only increases with the return of Tua Tagovailoa (head). He should be started in all fantasy leagues this week, with managers feeling quite excited about his upside.

  • Jaylen Waddle Listed As Questionable

    Miami Dolphins wide receiver Jaylen Waddle (shoulder) was limited at practice on Friday, his third straight session with the designation. As a result, he's considered questionable heading into Week 7 against Pittsburgh. Had the wideout practiced in full, fantasy managers would have a reason to be optimistic. Waddle is coming off one of his best performances of the year, compiling six catches for 129 yards versus the Vikings in Week 6. With Miami losing its previous three games, the Fins will certainly do everything to get him out there on Sunday. But if Waddle can't go, Tyreek Hill, who leads the Dolphins in receiving this season, will likely get even more attention, while tight end Mike Gesicki, who is tied for a team-high three receiving touchdowns, would be a hit-or-miss fantasy option.

  • Jaylen Waddle Gets Another Limited Tag

    Miami Dolphins wide receiver Jaylen Waddle (shoulder) was limited again in practice on Thursday. There's nothing to suggest that Waddle will be in danger of missing the Week 7 game against the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday Night Football. He's coming off his third 100-yard game of the season in the Week 6 loss to the Minnesota Vikings. The 23-year-old second-year wideout already has 30 catches on 49 targets for 533 yards and three touchdowns in six games in 2022. Quarterback Tua Tagovailoa is returning from his concussion as well, so both Waddle and Tyreek Hill are must-starts in fantasy football starting lineups against a Pittsburgh defense that has given up a lot of yards so far this year.

  • Dolphins Optimistic Jaylen Waddle Will Play Sunday Night

    Miami Dolphins head coach Mike McDaniel said he doesn't expect to see much from wide receiver Jaylen Waddle (shoulder) in practice on Wednesday, but McDaniel also said he's optimistic that Waddle will play on Sunday night in Week 7 against the Pittsburgh Steelers. Waddle will likely be limited in Wednesday's practice session, but it's looking like Miami expects him to play this weekend. The 23-year-old second-year wideout had his third 100-yard game of the season in the Week 6 loss to the Minnesota Vikings, going for six catches (10 targets) and 129 yards. When healthy, he's a must-start in fantasy lineups, especially with quarterback Tua Tagovailoa (concussion) set to return as the starter this week.

  • Jaylen Waddle Eclipses Century Mark In Week 6

    Miami Dolphins wide receiver Jaylen Waddle turned 10 targets into six catches for 129 yards against the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday afternoon. Even with Teddy Bridgewater in charge of the offense for most of the game, Waddle and Tyreek Hill continued to show that they can co-exist, combining for over 300 yards in the loss. Waddle should be viewed as a high-end WR2 when Tua Tagovailoa returns under center next week.

  • Tyreek Hill, Jaylen Waddle Practice In Full Wednesday

    Miami Dolphins wide receivers Tyreek Hill (foot) and Jaylen Waddle (groin) were both full participants in practice on Wednesday. Hill was seen in a walking boot on his injured foot after the Week 5 loss to the New York Jets, but the injury wasn't deemed serious and he appears to be on track to suit up in Week 6 against the Minnesota Vikings. Quarterback Tua Tagovailoa (concussion) has already been ruled out, and Teddy Bridgewater (concussion, pectoral) is expected to back up rookie Skylar Thompson in his first career start this Sunday. Hill and Waddle are must-starts for fantasy managers when they are active, but you should expect a much lower ceiling and floor while taking passes from the inexperienced Thompson again this weekend.

  • Jaylen Waddle Held To Three Catches In Week 5

    Miami Dolphins wide receiver Jaylen Waddle hauled in all three of his targets for 23 yards against the New York Jets in Week 5. The 23-year-old has struggled without Tua Tagovailoa (head) throwing him the football, amassing just 62 yards over his last two games while catching passes from Teddy Bridgewater (head) and Skylar Thompson. As long as Tagovailoa is out of the lineup, Waddle's fantasy value will take a hit. For now, he looks like a fringe top-24 receiver heading into Week 6 versus the Minnesota Vikings.

  • Barring A Setback, Jaylen Waddle Will Play In Week 5

    Miami Dolphins wide receiver Jaylen Waddle (groin) will play in Week 5 against the Jets, barring a setback, according to ESPN NFL insider Adam Schefter. While there was a chance the wideout would miss this one after logging two-straight limited practices during the week, he didn't appear to be in any real danger of sitting out on Sunday. Tyreek Hill (quadriceps) is also forecasted to be in the lineup, so that's even better news. However, Tua Tagovailoa (concussion) won't play, forcing Waddle to catch throws from Teddy Bridgewater. But the veteran is a capable signal-caller, so Waddle should remain in all starting lineups.

  • Jaylen Waddle Practices Thursday

    Miami Dolphins wide receiver Jaylen Waddle (groin) was back at practice on Thursday after being held out of the team's Wednesday session. This bodes well for his availability in Week 5 against the Jets, but fantasy managers should continue to monitor his status at Friday's practice. With Tua Tagovailoa (head, neck) ruled out, Waddle's outlook isn't as encouraging with Teddy Bridgewater under center. We saw him gravitate towards Tyreek Hill when he entered in Week 4, so the sophomore figures to be more of a low-end WR2 this week.

  • Jaylen Waddle Doesn't Practice Wednesday

    Miami Dolphins wide receiver Jaylen Waddle (groin) didn't take part in Wednesday's practice. After back-to-back 100-yard games with two touchdowns in Weeks 2 and 3, Waddle disappointed in last Thursday night's loss to the Cincinnati Bengals when he caught two of five targets for a season-low 39 yards. The 23-year-old second-year wideout has two more days to get back on the practice field, but his fantasy ceiling and floor will be lowered with quarterback Tua Tagovailoa (head, neck) already ruled out for Week 5 against the New York Jets. If Waddle is active, he'll be a more shaky WR2 for fantasy managers with Teddy Bridgewater running the offense. If he sits, River Cracraft will have a bigger role opposite Tyreek Hill.

  • Jaylen Waddle Held In Check Thursday

    Miami Dolphins wide receiver Jaylen Waddle had his quietest game of the season in Week 4, hauling in just two of his five targets for 39 yards. Waddle entered the game against Cincinnati with a groin injury and failed to establish a strong connection with both Tua Tagovailoa (head, neck) and Teddy Bridgewater. He'll still rank as a high-end WR2 heading into Week 5 against the New York Jets.

    Miami Dolphins wide receiver Jaylen Waddle (groin) will suit up for the Week 4 matchup against the Cincinnati Bengals. This shouldn't come as a surprise because it seemed like Waddle was going to play all along. Fantasy managers shouldn't be concerned about this groin issue holding him back. He should be considered a low-end WR1 for this upcoming Thursday night matchup.

  • Jaylen Waddle Good To Go For Thursday Night Football

    Miami Dolphins wide receiver Jaylen Waddle (groin) should be good to go for Thursday Night Football against the Cincinnati Bengals. The 23-year-old was limited at practice the last two days but will suit up Thursday against the Bengals. He has hauled in 15 receptions on 25 targets for 273 yards and three touchdowns over three games. The former first-round pick owns a whopping 31% of the team's target share, sixth among all wide receivers. Waddle is a must-start in Week 4 and will have a plus matchup against a Bengals defense that is 22nd in DVOA against WR2s.

  • Jaylen Waddle Listed As DNP Monday

    Miami Dolphins wide receiver Jaylen Waddle (groin) was listed with a groin injury on the practice report and didn't practice. The Dolphins didn't actually practice on Monday, though, so the DNP was just an estimation on the short week. Miami plays the Cincinnati Bengals on Thursday night in Week 3. Waddle played 74 percent of the offensive snaps in the Week 3 win over the Buffalo Bills and caught four of six targets for 102 yards, his second straight week with 100-plus yards. The 23-year-old second-year pass-catcher's injury doesn't seem too severe, but we'll need to keep a close eye on him as Thursday approaches. If he cannot play or is limited, Cedrick Wilson Jr. (ribs, toe), who was listed as limited on Monday, would have a bigger role next to Tyreek Hill.

    Miami Dolphins wide receiver Jaylen Waddle is trending up ahead of Week 3 against the Buffalo Bills. Just last week, he played a pivotal role in defeating the Baltimore Ravens, catching 11 passes for 171 yards and two touchdowns. Although the Bills are a fantastic team, their secondary has been plagued by injuries all of a sudden and Waddle could expose its flaws. Managers should view Waddle as a high-end WR2, starting him in all fantasy football leagues this week.

    Miami Dolphins wide receiver Jaylen Waddle has a favorable matchup against the Baltimore Ravens in Week 2. Not only did the Ravens' secondary surrender 309 yards to the Jets last week, but Baltimore has lost Kyle Fuller (ACL) to injured reserve and could be without Marcus Peters (knee) and Marlon Humphrey (groin) this week. Even though he is the No. 2 option behind Tyreek Hill, Waddle has proven that he can co-exist with the ex-Chiefs receiver. Waddle should continue to be started in all leagues, and he ranks as a mid-range WR2 in Week 2.

    Miami Dolphins wide receiver Jaylen Waddle (quadriceps), who was limited in practice on Wednesday, is expected to play on Sunday in the Week 1 regular season opener against the New England Patriots. Waddle was seen warming up for practice with the team on Thursday as well. The 23-year-old second-year pass-catcher didn't have a sleeve on his injured leg on Wednesday either, another good sign that he'll be available to fantasy managers as at least a low-end WR2 this weekend. Tyreek Hill's presence in the offense will mean fewer targets for Waddle in his second NFL season, but he should still see plenty of looks in the short and intermediate areas of the field from quarterback Tua Tagovailoa.

    Miami Dolphins wide receiver Jaylen Waddle (undisclosed) was back at practice on Wednesday and wasn't wearing a leg sleeve. Head coach Mike McDaniel called Waddle limited. Waddle is dealing with an undisclosed lower leg injury heading into Week 1's matchup against the New England Patriots on Sunday. Barring a setback in practice later this week, the 23-year-old second-year pass-catcher should be good to go this weekend. Some folks have been down on Waddle's 2022 fantasy ceiling with All-Pro receiver Tyreek Hill in town, but Waddle should continue to see plenty of targets from quarterback Tua Tagovailoa. In Week 1, Waddle should be considered a low-end WR2 with upside against a strong Patriots secondary.

    Miami Dolphins wide receiver Jaylen Waddle (leg) was inactive for all of the team's preseason games and has missed several practices as the season opener approaches. He returned to the practice field Monday, which is an encouraging sign for Week 1. Waddle and company host the Patriots in Week 1, who have historically been a tough matchup for wideouts. However, it's tough to imagine sitting either Waddle or Tyreek Hill regardless of the opponent this year. Both have WR1 upside, even with Waddle dealing with a minor ailment. As always stay tuned for further injury updates.

  • Jaylen Waddle Could Remain Highly Productive

    Miami Dolphins wide receiver Jaylen Waddle caught 104 passes last year as a rookie, and ESPN's Dan Graziano believes that Waddle could lead the team in receiving in 2022, despite the addition of All-Pro pass-catcher Tyreek Hill. Waddle already has a connection with quarterback Tua Tagovailoa, who is likely to lean more on shorter, quick-hitting passes than deep bombs. Hill could also open up the field for Waddle, which will allow him to build on his impressive rookie campaign. The 23-year-old could be a Deebo Samuel-like weapon for new head coach Mike McDaniel. Most fantasy managers aren't as high on Waddle this year because of the presence of Hill, but he's still a solid WR2 target in fantasy drafts, especially in PPR leagues.

    Miami Dolphins wide receiver Jaylen Waddle (lower body) will be ready for Week 1, according to head coach Mike McDaniels. The 23-year-old hasn't been practicing for several weeks now. However, the Dolphins have mentioned that his absence is precautionary. It's hard to believe that Waddle has been held out of practice for multiple weeks as a precaution. Fantasy managers shouldn't be too worried, but probably won't get a better update until the official injury report is released next week.
