Miami Dolphins third round pick Michael Egnew has struggled through his first training camp. We break down the fantasy implications.

Miami Dolphins third round pick Michael Egnew has struggled through his first training camp, according to Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald. Egnew has looked lost in all facets of the game and hasn't played with very much speed. What's worse is the Dolphins' tight ends are all struggling, which doesn't help a team with underwhelming wide receivers.

Analysis: Michael Egnew was a huge reach by the Dolphins in the 2012 NFL Draft. At Missouri, Egnew was used mostly as a slot receiver and never had experience playing a traditional tight end role. It should come as no surprise that he is struggling to adapt to life in the NFL. With rookie quarterback Ryan Tannehill under center, and no wide receivers to speak of, the Miami passing game is one fantasy owners will want to avoid, though I'm sure this isn't breaking news.
