Brian Hartline
Mar 24: Hartline (knee) is expected to be ready for the Dolphins' 2014 season opener, Adam Beasley of the Miami Herald reports. Hartline suffered a torn PCL in Week 17 of 2013, but his recovery has been going well, and he remains on target to be ready to start the season. During his 2013 campaign, he had career highs in receptions (76) and touchdowns (four) en route to his second consecutive season with 1,000 or more receiving yards. He'll once again be a top target for quarterback Ryan Tannehill alongside their deep threat, Mike Wallace.

Dec 30: An MRI confirmed that Hartline suffered a PCL tear in Sunday's game against the Jets, the Miami Herald's Armando Salguero reports. The report adds that Hartline will not require surgery to address the issue and that he will be ready for training camp this coming summer. The wideout recorded 76 catches for 1,016 yards and four TDs in 2013, while being targeted 134 times, which placed him 20th in the NFL in the category. After agreeing to a five-year $30.8 million contract with the Dolphins last March, Hartline is around for the long haul, and given the relatively minor nature of his knee ailment, his 2014 status should not be impacted by Sunday's injury.

Dec 29: Hartline (knee) will not return to Sunday's game against the Jets, the Miami Herald's Armando Salguero reports. Hartline will finish the day with two catches for 38 yards. The injury looked like it could potentially be serious, but the Dolphins have not yet provided any additional information.

Dec 29: Hartline left Sunday's game against the Jets with a left knee injury, the South Florida Sun-Sentinel's Omar Kelly reports. Hartline was already nursing a knee ailment coming into the game, but this injury looked like it could potentially be more serious. Marlon Moore figures to get more opportunities, if Hartline is unable to return.

Dec 29: Hartline (knee) is active for Sunday's game against the Jets. Hartline abused the Jets the last time out, catching nine passes on 15 targets for 127 yards and a touchdown in Week 13. The Jets secondary continues to struggle, and while a repeat of that performance is relatively unlikely, Hartline could still be very productive in the regular season finale.

Dec 27: Hartline (knee) practiced fully Friday and is listed as probable for Sunday's game against the Jets, the Dolphins' official site reports. Hartline looks good to go Sunday and despite his two-catch (on 10 targets) dud in Week 16, he maintains utility in PPR formats thanks to his high target volume. He's 18th in the league to date in that category, with 129 targets (for 74 catches, 978 yards and four TDs) in 15 games.

Dec 25: The Dolphins estimate that Hartline (knee) would have been limited Wednesday, had they taken the field, Adam Beasley of the Miami Herald reports. Hartline's status is thus worth monitoring, as Sunday's game against the Jets approaches, though so far, there has been nothing to suggest that his Week 17 status is in any danger.

Dec 22: Hartline had two receptions on 10 targets for 53 yards in the Dolphins 19-0 loss to Buffalo on Sunday. The entire Miami offense pretty much never got off the plane, as they only had 14 rushing yards and 103 total yards of offense. The weather was far from ideal, but still not an excuse for the kind of pathetic performance this team put up, in a game they had to win to control their own playoff destiny.

Dec 15: Hartline had five receptions for 70 yards in Sunday's 24-20 victory over the Patriots. Hartline got off to a hot start to the season then slumped for a bit during the middle. He is hot again however as Ryan Tannehill seems to have taken that next step as a true NFL quarterback. Mike Wallace will always be the deep threat but Hartline always seems to come up with 4-8 catches and 60-80 yards each week. Not a bad flex play should you need one.

Dec 8: Hartline had five catches on eight targets for 51 yards and a touchdown Sunday against the Steelers. Hartline has now scored a touchdown in back-to-back games, a significant improvement after he scored in Week 1 and then not again until Week 13. He's improving at the right time for fantasy owners in the playoffs and he's got a promising matchup in Week 15 against the Patriots.

Dec 1: Hartline had nine catches on 15 targets for 127 yards and a touchdown Sunday against the Jets. A great game for Hartline, who abused the Jets' porous secondary Sunday. His touchdown was a 31-yard play in the third quarter that saw him beat Antonio Cromartie and then break two weak tackle attempts by Demario Davis and Ed Reed, before running into the end zone. It was his first score wince Week 3, while breaking the 100-yard mark for the first time since Week 1. It likely won't be as easy next week, as the Dolphins travel to Pittsburgh in Week 14.

Nov 24: Hartline had five catches on five targets for 78 yards Sunday against the Panthers. Another decent performance for Hartline, more so in PPR leagues than non-PPR ones. The Dolphins' No. 2 wideout hasn't reached 80 receiving yards in a game since Week 1 and hasn't scored a touchdown since Week 3. However, he's got a promising matchup in Week 13, against a Jets defense that is better against the run than the pass this year and could be without top corner Antonio Cromartie (hip).

Nov 17: Hartline had five receptions for 65 yards as the Dolphins defeated the Chargers on Sunday. Hartline had a solid day bit it could've been so much better as he was targeted a team leading 13 times. Hopefully that ratio gets much better in the future.

Nov 11: Hartline caught five passes for 57 yards on eight targets in Monday's 22-19 loss to Tampa Bay. A pretty typical game for Hartline, who has caught between 3-6 passes for 34-69 receiving yards in each of the last eight games. While it's pretty amazing that he's been so consistently mediocre, Hartline isn't doing a whole lot for fantasy owners. He hasn't scored since Week 3 and doesn't offer much besides a decent weekly floor.

Oct 31: Hartline caught three passes for 39 yards on five targets in Thursday's 22-20 win over the Bengals. Hartline hasn't reached 70 receiving yards since Week 1 and hasn't scored a touchdown since Week 3. While his role in the Miami offense is safe, Hartline simply can't be counted on for anything more than a few receptions. He hasn't really disappeared this season but the big games have been non-existent since Week 1.

Oct 27: Hartline had four catches on six targets for 37 yards Sunday against the Patriots. Another ho-hum game for Hartline, who hasn't reached the 70-yard mark since his big Week 1 performance against the Browns (nine catches for 114 yards and a touchdown). While he's getting a decent amount of targets, very few are coming near the end zone, which has hampered his ability to score touchdowns. He'll look to turn it around in Week 9, although it won't be easy against a Bengals' defense that, despite numerous injuries to the secondary, held the Jets to under 200 yards through the air Sunday.

Oct 20: Hartline had six catches on 11 targets for 69 yards Sunday against the Bills. Hartline led the team in targets and receptions, although he was unable to haul in one of Ryan Tannehill's three touchdown passes. Hartline has now reached at least 60 receiving yards in back-to-back games, although he hasn't found the end zone since Week 3 against Atlanta. He'll look to turn that around in Week 8 against the Patriots.

Oct 6: Hartline had four catches on seven targets for 60 yards Sunday against the Ravens. Hartline has been a bit quiet as of late, catching seven passes on 11 targets for 94 yards over the last two games combined. He isn't usually a big play threat and doesn't get many targets, so his fantasy upside is somewhat limited. With Mike Wallace getting 16 targets Sunday and Brandon Gibson's early chemistry with quarterback Ryan Tannehill, it's tough to see Hartline breaking out in a big way. The Dolphins are off in Week 6, so Hartline will have some extra practice time with Tannehill, before they take on the Bills in Week 7.

Sep 30: Hartline had three catches for 34 yards in Monday's 38-17 loss to New Orleans. This was a disappointing game for Hartline and the Dolphins passing game. They will have to perform better in the future when going up against elite quarterbacks who can put points up on the board almost at will.

Sep 22: Hartline caught four passes on six targets for 56 yards with a touchdown in Sunday's win over Atlanta. Hartline led the team in receiving yards, and was second in targets behind Brandon Gibson's eight looks. Mike Wallace's up-and-down season continued, as he had just two catches for 22 yards. It looks like Hartline will be a big part of Miami's passing game, regardless of what Wallace does on any given Sunday.

Sep 15: Hartline had five catches on eight targets for 68 yards Sunday against the Colts. A decent performance for Hartline, although it's a far cry from his nine-catch, 114-yard, one-touchdown stat line he submitted in Week 1 against the Browns. Hartline has been known to have an explosive game here-and-there, although Sunday's production is more in line with what fantasy owners should expect moving forward, especially if quarterback Ryan Tannehill continues to key on Mike Wallace, who had nine catches for 115 yards and a touchdown Sunday.

Sep 8: Hartline had nine catches on 15 targets for 114 yards and a touchdown Sunday against the Browns. The Dolphins' running game was a mess Sunday, so Hartline's performance was especially important. Despite Mike Wallace's addition to the team, Hartline led the Dolphins in targets, catches and receiving yards against Cleveland. Hartline had a few big performances last season, although he isn't nearly consistent enough to be spoken of when discussing top-level fantasy performers.

Aug 24: Hartline had four receptions for 40 yards in Saturday's 17-16 loss to Tampa. Hartline and Ryan Tannehill continue to work well and may be the top combo for Miami this season. One problem for this duo however seems to be a lack of touchdowns inside the red zone. Tannehill always seems to look in Hartline's direction between the 20s, but when it comes time for paydirt, they seem to have a hard time getting on the same page.

Aug 10: Hartline had one reception for nine yards in Friday's 27-3 rout of Jacksonville. It's good to see Hartline get in some game action after dealing with a minor leg injury earlier in the week. Hartline quietly had a good season last year and even with Mike Wallace on board, could lead Dolphins wide receivers in targets this year.

Aug 4: Hartline will sit out Sunday night's preseason opener against the Cowboys, NFL.com reports. Hartline has reportedly recovered from a minor calf strain, but the Dolphins see no reason to rush the wide receiver out to action in Sunday's preseason tilt.

Aug 3: Hartline has recovered from his calf strain, according to the Miami Herald's Armando Salguero. Hartline has been lobbying coach Joe Philbin to let him play Sunday versus Dallas but that would seem unlikely as there is no reason to rush him back for a meaningless game.

Aug 1: Hartline (calf) is still sitting not practicing, according to the Miami Herald. Like Mike Wallace's injury, Hartline's issue is not considered to be serious and at this point there is no reason to rush players back, with over five weeks left until the season starts.

Jul 30: Hartline pulled a calf muscle before the team's scrimmage Monday, according to the Palm Beach Post. The Dolphins are being hit hard at the receiver position right now, as this injury comes after the team lost Armon Binns for the season due to an ACL tear and Rishard Matthews for a couple of weeks due to an injury of his own. Hartline's injury doesn't seem to be a serious one, but look for the Dolphins to go the safe route and keep him out of practice for a couple of days.
