Brian Hartline posts 57 yards for fantasy owners in loss

Steve Mitchell-USA TODAY Sports

Miami Dolphins wide receiver Brian Hartline continues to steadily pad his yardage total on the season, logging another 57 versus the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Monday night. We break down the fantasy implications.

Miami Dolphins wide receiver Brian Hartline continues to be a reliable chain-mover in the receiving game, but played second fiddle once again.

This time, Hartline wasn't overshadowed by Mike Wallace or Charles Clay, but by Rishard Matthews, who boasted a line of 11 catches for 120 yards and a pair of touchdowns. Hartline was targeted frequently with Darrelle Revis occupying Mike Wallace for much of the game, and he finished with five catches for 57 yards

Fantasy Spin: Versus a San Diego Chargers defense that is allowing 280 passing yards per game, the stage is set for Wallace to capitalize on a few big plays. But with so much inconsistency throughout the season, it's difficult to trust Hartline as anything more than a WR4 with upside. There isn't anything to suggest that Hartline will suddenly right the ship after being nearly invisible over the past few weeks, and the emergence of Matthews in the receiving game only adds to the case against him.
