Brian Hartline is probable for Week 1. We break down the fantasy implications.

Brian Hartline (calf) practiced all week and he is listed as probable to take on the Texans for Week 1.

Analysis: Hartline missed all of the preseason and he actually gained value for fantasy. Yes, you can read that sentence again. None of the receivers on Miami did anything worth noting and Davone Bess really just serves as a slot receiver. Hartline won't have any real fantasy allure this week since the Dolphins are expected to ease him back into the X role. That's not such a terrible thing since he'd be tangling with Pro Bowl talent Johnathan Joseph. Davone Bess is the only player that fantasy owners should consider starting in PPR leagues, but there are about 50 other receiver ahead of him.
