Brian Hartline
Feb 27: Hartline was released by the Dolphins on Friday, NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports. Following consecutive 1,000-yard seasons, Hartline produced an ugly 39-474-2 receiving line on 63 targets in 2014. He's never been an explosive player, and his per-target production is typically underwhelming. With Mike Wallace also carrying a bloated contract, the Miami receiving corps may undergo an offseason overhaul. Jarvis Landry is seemingly assured of a big role in 2015, but it remains to be seen how the rest will shake out. As for Hartline, the 28-year-old wideout should be able to find a team that allows him to compete for a starting job in training camp. However, he's unlikely to re-emerge as a 1,000-yard receiver.

Dec 29: Hartline had five receptions for 94 yards in Sunday's loss to the Jets. Hartline finishes a disappointing 2014 campaign with just 39 receptions for 474 yards and two touchdowns. The emergence of Jarvis Landry made Hartline an afterthought in the passing game, and it shouldn't come as a surprise to anyone if Hartline find himself playing for another team next season.

Dec 7: Hartline (knee) caught 2-of-4 targets for 11 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 28-13 loss to the Ravens. Hartline caught an eight-yard touchdown late in the opening quarter, but was quiet otherwise. He's taken a backseat to Jarvis Landry in recent weeks, and Sunday was no exception, as the sure-handed rookie wideout caught 6-of-6 targets for 55 yards. If you need Hartline next week, he'll face the Patriots on the road.

Dec 7: Hartline (knee) is listed as active Sunday's game against the Ravens. Hartline is only an option in deeper formats these days, given that he is behind both Mike Wallace and Jarvis Landry in the Dolphins' current wideout pecking order.

Dec 3: Hartline (knee) was limited at practice Wednesday, the Dolphins' official site reports. Hartline's limited session Wednesday confirms that he avoided a serious injury Monday against the Jets, but per the Palm Beach Post, it's unclear at this stage if the wideout will be a go Sunday against the Ravens.

Dec 1: Hartline's knee injury isn't believed to be serious, Andrew Abramson of The Palm Beach Post reports. Hartline finished Monday's game around halftime with just one reception for nine yards, as the Miami offense largely relied on Mike Wallace and Jarvis Landry. Even if he doesn't miss any time beyond Monday, Hartline is no better than the third or fourth option in the Dolphins' inconsistent passing game.

Dec 1: Hartline left Monday's game against the Jets with a knee injury and he won't return to the contest, Andrew Abramson of The Palm Beach Post reports. At the time of his exit, Hartline had one reception for nine yards on his only target. His absence should lead to added snaps for Brandon Gibson and Rishard Matthews, both of whom were big parts of the Miami offense at different points during the 2013 season.

Nov 23: Hartline had two receptions for 39 yards in Miami's 39-36 loss to Denver on Sunday. Hartline is Miami's number two receiver in name only as quarterback Ryan Tannehill prefers Mike Wallace and rookie Jarvis Landry. Not only did Hartline only have two receptions Sunday, but he also only had two targets, as he's just not a big part of the team's game plan.

Nov 13: Hartline caught 3-of-4 targets for 55 yards in Thursday's 22-9 win over the Bills. Hartline snuck around the defense on a short crossing route to pick up an unexpected gain of 31 yards. He otherwise had a pretty quiet night, which has increasingly become the norm this season. Both Jarvis Landry and Charles Clay, not to mention Mike Wallace, have bigger roles in the passing game.

Nov 9: Hartline only caught one pass for one yard during Sunday's loss to Detroit. Hartline has yet to show the big play ability of past seasons this year and may now be no better than the third or fourth option in the passing game behind Mike Wallace, Jarvis Landry, and Charles Clay.

Nov 2: Hartline had five catches on seven targets for 50 yards in Sunday's 37-0 win over the Chargers. Ryan Tannehill was terrific, but he spread the ball around to 10 different receivers, so no one player posted any standout numbers. This was just the second time all season that Hartline has reached 50 receiving yards.

Oct 19: Hartline (finger) finished with three catches on three targets for 35 yards in Sunday's win over the Bears. Hartline secured all three of his targets Sunday, but once again made a limited fantasy impact. In fact, Hartline has topped the 40-yard mark just once this season and also sports only one touchdown on the campaign.

Oct 16: At this stage, Hartline appears to be an afterthought in the Miami offense, according to the Miami Herald. Hartline was only targeted twice in Sunday's loss to Green Bay, while fellow WR Jarvis Landry led the team with six catches for 75 yards in the contest. Hartline is coming off back-to-back 1,000 yard seasons, but so far this year only has 16 receptions for 161 yards and a TD through five games. He makes for a risky lineup option until he re-establishes his on-field rapport with QB Ryan Tannehill.

Sep 28: Hartline had six catches on seven targets for 74 yards during Sunday's 38-14 win over the Raiders in London. Hartline led the team in targets, receptions and receiving yards, though fellow starting wideout Mike Wallace and backup tight end Dion Sims caught Ryan Tannehill's touchdown passes. Hartline's 74 yards were more than double his previous season-high of 36, which he had in Week 2 against the Bills. He remains a fairly limited fantasy option, despite averaging over six targets per game.

Sep 21: Hartline caught three passes on seven targets for 25 yards with a touchdown in Sunday's loss to Kansas City. Hartline scored the team's lone touchdown, with a one-yard grab early in the third quarter. Miami's passing game is really struggling right now, however, so it's hard to get excited about Hartline, despite the fact that he was targeted seven times and scored Sunday.

Sep 14: Hartline had five receptions on eight targets for 36 yards as Miami was crushed by Buffalo on Sunday 29-10. The five receptions are nice, but a seven yard average isn't anything to crow about. Hartline did have eight targets, but that may have been because with the team trailing big time in the second half, quite a few pass plays were drawn up, something that won't happen every week.

Sep 7: Hartline caught two passes for 26 yards in the Dolphins Week 1 win over the Patriots. Hartline had a quiet day as the Dolphins running game stole the show with 191 yards rushing. Hartline was only targeted four times during the game, as Tannehill preferred Mike Wallace and Charles Clay in this one. Hartline will look to rebound next week at Buffalo.

Aug 16: Hartline caught one pass for five yards on two targets in his 2014 preseason debut Saturday against the Buccaneers. Hartline and Mike Wallace are locked in as the starters, but there may be a bit more competition for targets this year. The Dolphins' depth at wide receiver is quite clearly improved, and the team signed running back Knowshon Moreno, who is more of a receiving threat than either Lamar Miller or Daniel Thomas. Of course, Miami's offensive line will likely be better than it was last season, and Ryan Tannehill may also improve. If the passing game is a bit more prolific, Hartline shouldn't be too bothered by the increased competition for targets, so long as his playing time remains steady, as expected.

Aug 14: Hartline is expected to make his preseason debut Saturday, according to the Miami Herald's Armando Salguero. Hartline is fully recovered from offseason knee surgery and could be a solid pick in fantasy leagues if quarterback Ryan Tannehill take that next step in his progression. It's a big if however.

May 27: Hartline (knee) practiced with the team Tuesday, according to the Miami Herald's Adam Beasley. Hartline was coming off off-season rehab for a torn PCL so suiting up and participating in OTA is a positive sign that he will be 100% ready to go when training camp opens in July.
