2014 Outlook: Twenty-seven million. That's the guaranteed dollar figure on Wallace's contract. The primary purpose of Miami's splashy signing last offseason was to give QB Ryan Tannehill a much-needed deep threat. To be sure, Wallace didn't lack for stretch vertical opportunities in 2013 (32 such targets, fourth in the NFL), but quantity didn't lead to productivity in this case. He ranked 30th among receivers with 30 fantasy points on stretch vertical passes. Don't hope for anything better than flex-level production from Wallace until he and Tannehill start converting those downfield chances into more points.
2014 Outlook: Being good isn't only about speed. Miller is a straight-ahead, 4.4 flash at 216 pounds, but he had only four rushes of 20 yards or more last season -- and he fumbled one of them away. The reason we didn't endorse Miller as a no-doubt fantasy starter last year involved his lack of physicality, and now the Dolphins know the real story too. That's why they brought in Knowshon Moreno on a one-year deal and will likely lean on him. To be sure, Moreno is an injury risk, and Miller still has some room to grow. But don't slate Miller as a starter on your fantasy squad.
2014 Outlook: Moreno was fantasy's No. 5 RB last season. But that was in Denver, where Peyton Manning scares defenses into spreading out. Incredibly, 192 of Moreno's 241 carries in 2013 came with six men or fewer in the box. That won't be the case in Miami, where the offensive line has been rebuilt and Ryan Tannehill is under center. Moreno is a tough guy with good pass-blocking instincts, but knee injuries have sapped his explosiveness, and it's hard to trust his ability to consistently make yardage on his own. Though he's penciled in as the Dolphins' starter, Moreno is no better than a fantasy flex.
2014 Outlook: For the second consecutive year, Hartline posted more than 70 catches and 1,000 yards. He also bested highly touted teammate Mike Wallace in catches and yards despite being targeted eight fewer times. His 130 targets tied for 19th among WRs and placed him just ahead of Anquan Boldin, DeSean Jackson, Jordy Nelson and Victor Cruz. So why isn't Hartline ranked higher? Since 2012, he's been held under 100 yards in 27 of his 32 games and has only 5 TDs.
2014 Outlook: After Dustin Keller went down in the preseason with a catastrophic knee injury, Clay, a third-year halfback/fullback, was forced into action as Miami's primary tight end. And what a revelation he turned out to be. Clay isn't a factor as a run blocker and he's not a burner or a total athletic freak, but he has soft hands and is a reliable safety valve for a young QB (Ryan Tannehill) who often needs one. Add it all up and Clay finished among the top 10 TEs in targets (101), catches (69), yards (759) and touchdowns (6) last season, and he even saw the occasional carry from the Dolphins' backfield. Clay won't win you weeks, but he's an acceptable fantasy starter.
