Jabar Gaffney works with Dolphins starting unit: Fantasy implications

Jonathan Ferrey

Jabar Gaffney is working with the Dolphins' starting unit in practice, and could be in line for an increased role in the offense. We break down the fantasy implications.

Jabar Gaffney continues to work with the starting unit for the Miami Dolphins in practice, according to the South Florida Sun Sentinel. The Dolphins are looking for a third receiver to complement Brian Hartline and Davone Bess, and Gaffney could be the man.

Gaffney has yet to play in any game for the Dolphins this season. He is reportedly healthy, but is still struggling to learn head coach Joe Philbin's offense.

Fantasy Impact: Marlon Moore and/or Anthony Armstrong could also step up for the Dolphins, but it seems like Gaffney has the most potential of the three if only he could get the plays down. The fact that he is working with the first-team offense is a good sign that he is making progress.

Gaffney is 31 years old, but that didn't stop him from posting career numbers with the Washington Redskins last season. If he can earn regular snaps for the Dolphins, Gaffney could be worth fantasy consideration in deeper leagues. Wait until he actually see the field and produces before targeting him off waivers, however.
