Brian Hartline limited in Thursday practice: Fantasy implications

Steve Mitchell-US PRESSWIRE

Brian Hartline was downgraded to "limited" in practice on Thursday. We break down the fantasy implications.

Miami Dolphins WR Brian Hartline (groin) was added to the injury reports after being limited in Thursday's practice. He was a full go on Wednesday, which suggests that he tweaked the groin then. Currently, there should be no danger of him missing Sunday's game against the Indianapolis Colts.

Hartline has 33 catches for 555 yards and one TD through seven games.

Fantasy Impact: Mid-week downgrades are almost always bad news, so we'll keep monitoring the situation. I don't see him missing the game, but Friday's practice reports should be more instructive.

The bulk of Hartline's season stats came in just one game, but he's still emerging as a viable fantasy option. Start him as a WR3 against Indy's poor run defense.
