Miami Dolphins TE Mike Gesicki failed to record a catch on two targets in Week 6 versus the New York Jets.
Fantasy Spin: It has been an all-or-nothing campaign for Gesicki so far, posting 91 or more yards in two games and a total of 60 in his other four. The third-year tight end spends the bulk of his time in the slot and should have ample opportunity to take advantage of his 6-foot-6, 250-pound frame as a result, but that doesn't seem to happen as often as it should. He figures to remain a bit of a wild-card after Miami's bye next week when the Dolphins host the Los Angeles Rams in Week 8.
Miami Dolphins tight end Mike Gesicki was carrying decent momentum into this game following a solid performance in Week 5. Sadly, he was unable to do anything during the victory over the New York Jets here. He failed to haul in either of his targets during the 24-0 victory. Meanwhile, both Adam Shaheen and Durham Smythe caught touchdowns in this one, while Gesicki did nothing. It's beginning to be difficult to trust Gesicki in fantasy leagues. He should be in the TE2 conversation against the Los Angeles Rams in Week 8.
Miami Dolphins tight end Mike Gesicki has been disappointing throughout most of the regular season thus far. However, he put together a solid performance against the San Francisco 49ers in Week 5. He hauled in five receptions for 91 yards in the victory last week. Fantasy owners should expect a similar performance against the horrendous New York Jets Defense in Week 6. Gesicki should be a low-end TE1 here since the Jets haven't learned how to stop anyone yet.
Miami Dolphins TE Mike Gesicki caught five of his six targets for 91 yards in a 43-17 win over the San Francisco 49ers in Week 5.
Fantasy Spin: Gesicki now has a pair of 90-plus-yard performances to go along with three duds this year. He clearly has TE1 upside, but his lack of consistency makes him a boom-or-best streaming option.
Miami Dolphins tight end Mike Gesicki came into this Week 5 matchup with two total receptions over the last two weeks. However, Gesicki was able to rebound against the San Francisco 49ers. He hauled in five of his six targets for 91 yards in the win. To be fair, most of his yardage was from a 70-yard reception. Gesicki wasn't able to do much with the rest of his targets. Despite that, he'll be an interesting option against the awful New York Jets Defense next week.
Miami Dolphins tight end Mike Gesicki started off the season hot, but has cooled down over the last two games. Gesicki has hauled in two total receptions for 30 yards over each of the last two weeks. It isn't going to get easier for Gesicki as he heads into a matchup with the San Francisco 49ers in Week 5. A team that has not allowed a touchdown to opposing tight ends this season. Fantasy owners should consider Gesicki a low-end TE2 here in avoidable matchup.
Miami Dolphins TE Mike Gesicki has been limited to one catch on three targets for 15 yards in each of his last two games following a Week 2 outburst in which he amassed eight catches for 130 yards and a touchdown. Offensive coordinator Chan Gailey attributed the recent downturn to tighter coverage from opponents and not wanting to force the ball to him when it looks like he is double-covered. 'A few times it's looked like they were double-covering him and they ended up single-covering him; but to the quarterback on his first look, it looked double covered, so (Ryan Fitzpatrick) got off of him. We just have to pay closer attention to how they are actually playing him during the course of the game. I think hopefully now that we've put the ball in other places, things will start to come back his way,' Gailey said.
Fantasy Spin: To be fair, Gesicki is probably the healthiest of the team's three primary options (DeVante Parker and Preston Williams being the other two) in the passing game, so defenses likely consider him the biggest threat. On the plus side, he is still getting a heavy dose of snaps out of the slot, so he's being used in the same kind of way that allowed him to bust out late last season. The odds he'll bounce back in Week 5 are not good, however, as the Dolphins will visit the San Francisco 49ers.
Miami Dolphins tight end Mike Gesicki showed a promising performance in Week 2, but has two total receptions since then. In Week 4, Gesicki finished with one reception on three targets for 15 yards in the loss to the Seattle Seahawks. It was a rough game for Gesicki who was expected to play well against this banged up secondary. Fantasy owners can't count on Gesicki as a TE1 going forward. Hopefully he can be a reliable TE2 versus the San Francisco 49ers injured defense in Week 5.
Miami Dolphins TE Mike Gesicki registered just one catch for 15 yards on three targets in Week 4 against the Seattle Seahawks.
Fantasy Spin: Gesicki had his two-game scoring streak come to a close, and he now has just two catches over the past two games. He has TE1 potential, but right now he should be treated as a TE2 in leagues of 12 or more teams heading into Week 5 at San Francisco.
Miami Dolphins tight end Mike Gesicki is coming off his worst performance of the 2020 campaign. He hauled in one of his three targets for 15 yards and one touchdown in the win over the Jacksonville Jaguars. To be fair, quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick only attempted 20 passes during the entire game. However, Gesicki should be more involved than just three total targets. He'll be in the TE1 conversation against the Seattle Seahawks who are horrible at stopping the passing attack.
Miami Dolphins tight end Mike Gesicki was able to score a touchdown for the second time in two weeks during the Thursday night victory over the Jacksonville Jaguars. Gesicki hauled in one of three targets for 15 yards and one touchdown. Quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick only had 20 passing attempts in this one, so it was a bit of an odd game. Regardless, Gesicki carries TE1 value into a favorable matchup versus the Seattle Seahawks shaky pass defense in Week 4.
Miami Dolphins TE Mike Gesicki caught one pass for 15 yards and a touchdown in Week 3 against the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Fantasy Spin: On a night where Ryan Fitzpatrick only threw two incompletions, both of them were intended for Gesicki, who followed up a eight-catch, 130-yard outing in Week 2 with a disappointing performance that was somewhat salvaged by getting into the end zone. He's still the most dangerous weapon the Dolphins have outside of DeVante Parker, though, and remains a viable choice at TE1.
Miami Dolphins tight end Mike Gesicki is coming off a fantastic game versus the Buffalo Bills in Week 2. He was able to haul in eight of his 11 targets for 130 yards and one touchdown last week. It was a strong showing from Gesicki who was coming off a dud during the season opener. He'll get a favorable matchup versus the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 3. The same team that allowed tight end Jonnu Smith to score two touchdowns on them last week. Gesicki should be considered a top tight end candidate for his Thursday night matchup with Jacksonville.
Miami Dolphins tight end Mike Gesicki started off the season slow, but completely destroyed the Buffalo Bills Defense in Week 2. He hauled in eight of his 11 targets for 130 receiving yards and one touchdown in the loss. There was nothing the Bills could do to stop Gesicki in this one. He has moved to the slot receiver role this season and it appears to be working. Fantasy owners should be able to count on Gesicki as a low-end TE1 versus the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 3.
Miami Dolphins TE Mike Gesicki exploded for a career-high 130 receiving yards on receptions in Week 2 against the Buffalo Bills. In fact, it was his first-ever 100-yard game.
Fantasy Spin: Gesicki's day was highlighted by a sick one-handed catch, and he showed what he can do. Fantasy owners can rely upon him as a low-end TE1 after this big day, and he has a favorable matchup in Week 3 at Jacksonville on Thursday against the defensively-challenged Jags.
Miami Dolphins tight end Mike Gesicki could be a huge part of the offense this season. He's expected to play as the slot receiver, which should increase his fantasy value. He was only able to haul in three receptions for 30 yards during the Week 1 loss to the New England Patriots. It won't get much easier for Gesicki versus the Buffalo Bills in Week 2. Fantasy owners should hang in there because Gesicki does have promising upside. He should be considered a TE2 versus the Bills tough defense.
Miami Dolphins tight end Mike Gesicki was expected to be a big time option for the team this season. However, he was unable to get much going during the Week 1 loss to the New England Patriots. He hauled in three receptions for 30 yards, which is not what anyone wanted from him. There is plenty of upside for Gesicki, but he could struggle again versus the Buffalo Bills next week. Fantasy owners should consider him a TE2 for that contest.
Miami Dolphins TE Mike Gesicki caught three passes for 30 yards against the New England Patriots in Week 1.
Fantasy Spin: Gesicki should receive a handful of targets each game but probably will not be more than a No. 2 tight end in most fantasy leagues.
Miami Dolphins TE Mike Gesicki (glute) fully participated in practice Friday, Sept. 11, and is not on the injury report for Week 1.
Fantasy Spin: Gesicki should be involved in the passing game but will be facing a tough New England Patriots defense. He can be considered a No. 2 tight end in fantasy leagues this week.
Miami Dolphins DB Clayton Fejedelem (pectoral) was limited in practice for a second straight day Friday, Sept. 11, and is listed as doubtful for Week 1 versus the New England Patriots. TE Mike Gesicki (glute), CB Xavien Howard (knee), CB Byron Jones (Achilles), WR DeVante Parker (hamstring), QB Tua Tagovailoa (hip), LB Kyle Van Noy (hand) and WR Preston Williams (knee) practiced in full Friday and have been removed from the injury report.
