Miami Dolphins Depth Chart 2018 Dolphins Depth Chart

7-9, 2nd AFC East

6:00 pm GMT, 12/30

The Dolphins getting Ryan Tannehill back was a bigger boost than expected, and while we saw Brock Osweiler at times as the backup, Tannehill is looking to be the QB1 still for the future. His pass-catching options didn’t exactly fall as advertised. Despite being listed as a WR1 on the depth chart, Kenny Stills usage was very pedestrian. We didn’t see much DeVante Parker as the injury issues continued. Miami built themselves around the run, and the offseason addition of Danny Amendola wasn’t much of an impact. The WR depth chart does not tell the story here, as production was sporadic most of the season. Miami split the workload between running backs, and even at Frank Gore’s age, he held the RB1 role most of the year until Kenyan Drake logged some starts at the end of the season. It will be interesting to see next season if Drake can gain a larger role. Kalen Ballage sat as the third back on the roster, but didn’t get a ton of work. Tight end went to Mike Gesicki, who was a rookie, yet his role in the offense wasn’t much. In year two he will likely be the guy again as the Dolphins do not have a ton of depth behind him.

Preseason Analysis: Dolphins Can't Get Out of Their Own Way

Jay Cutler is gone, and hopefully for good. Ryan Tannehill is due back after a season long injury suffered late in 2016. Unfortunately Tannehill doesn’t have much to come back to. Jarvis Landry is in Cleveland, Jay Ajayi is in Philly, and the Dolphins are stuck with a whole lot of nothing. Kenyan Drake flashed some promise late last season, and will likely split time with Miami native Frank Gore, who came over via free agency. They drafted Kalen Ballage, who could see some passing game work, but isn’t expected to make a huge impact this season. The Dolphins drafted two tight ends in the draft, and the one expected to make the most impact would be Mike Gesicki out of Penn State. Losing Landry to the Browns opens the door for DeVante Parker to get some high volume, but his health and overall play has been questionable since entering the league. Kenny Still still finds his way in Miami, and is one of the more underrated wideouts in the league. After that, Albert Wilson and Danny Amendola remain. Amendola could sneak into a Landry like role, but Miami would be wise to see what they have in a few other options.

The Miami Dolphins come in to the 2018 season of a rather subpar 2017 campaign, which saw them towards the bottom of the division race once again. The Dolphins roster coming into this season is drastically different then the roster which made the playoffs during the 2016 season. Adam Gase will be returning as head coach for the Dolphins in his 3rd season, the Dolphins are hopeful of Gase returning the Dolphins to 2016 form where they made the playoffs for the first time since 2008. The dolphins are also returning Matt Burke in his second season as Defensive Coordinator. The new guy on the block is Dowell Loggains who is taking over as the Offensive Coordinator a job he held for the Chicago Bears the last two years. On the offensive side one of the biggest obstacles for the dolphins for this upcoming season will be the ability of the patch worked offensive line to protect quarter back Ryan Tannehill and open up holes for the running game. There remain questions at left tackle where Laremy Tunsil was sub-par at best last season. Along with no clear replacement for Mike Pouncey at center after his request for a release, and a void at right guard where Jesse Davis the incumbent was disappointing at last season. The chances of this unit gelling together from training camp or at all this season are slim to say the least.

Tied closely in with the offensive line play, will be that of the Quarter Back Ryan Tannehill. Tannehill who before getting hurt on 2016 was having a down year compared to his previous 3 seasons. Will be returning to the field without his favorite target in Jarvis Landry who is now in Cleveland. The impact players for the Dolphins receiving corps will be a combination of Kenny Stills, Devante Parker and, free agent signing Danny Amendola. Kenny Stills and Danny Amendola are both veteran polished route runners who can help move the chains for the Dolphins. It will be interesting to see if Devante Parker can develop into the deep threat/ home run hitter the Dolphins hoped for when they drafted him. With Landry no longer there to eat up so many looks in the passing game look for Parker to have a bigger roll and impact in the offense this year. One of the bright spots from the Dolphins 2017 campaign Kenyan Drake will be the unquestioned lead back this season. Expect Drake to carry a majority of the workload in the back field this season. On the defensive side of the ball the Dolphins will have a new look with the departure of players like Ndamokung Suh and Lawerence Timmons. The dolphins did add two impact rookies in Minkah Fitzpatrick and Robert Quinn. Also, the return of Linebacker Reakwon McMillian for a torn ACL will help solidify the linebacking corps for the dolphins. The defense will still be able to pressure the opposing quarter back like it did last year with the current personal and defensive scheme. The biggest concern going in to this year will be the ability to create turnovers. All in all expect the dolphins to improve upon last year’s campaign by at least two more wins.
