The Miami Dolphins offense didn’t inspire a lot of confidence in a shaky 17-10 win against Washington on Sunday. For fantasy owners, however, Jarvis Landry and Jordan Cameron lived up to expectations.
The pair led the way in Miami’s passing attack, with Landry matching his preseason hype as a flex consideration and Cameron proving to be a worthy low-end TE1 or high-end TE2, at least in Week 1.
Both Landry and Cameron should be nice, if unspectacular, fantasy options for owners this year, and each will be worthy of starting consideration every week. Yes, Landry’s fantasy stats were bolstered by a punt-return touchdown, but his 12 targets were also an excellent sign of things to come. In points-per-reception leagues, he should be a beast this season.
Cameron, meanwhile, has the athleticism—and Miami has a dearth of playmakers in the passing game—to be a potential top-five tight end, though banking on that is probably wishful thinking.
Ryan Tannehill, on the other hand, was a bit of a disappointment. While most owners probably aren’t starting him outside of two-QB leagues, Tannehill’s quiet afternoon wasn’t a great start for owners who gambled on him in Week 1.
Expect Tannehill to be a middle-of-the-road, decent QB2 all season. He lacks the skill set and the elite weapons in the passing game to crack the QB1 conversation.
