Brian Hartline breaks out for fantasy owners with 114 yards and a touchdown

Ron Schwane-USA TODAY Sports

Brian Hartline dominated the Dolphins' receiving game with a touchdown and 114 yards versus the Browns. We break down the fantasy implications.

Dolphins wide receiver Brian Hartline led the team with nine catches, 114 yards and a touchdown in Miami's 23-10 win over the Browns.

Hartline also led the team with 15 targets, which is not surprising since he had the benefit of not having the attention of the Browns' top cornerback Joe Haden. As a result, Hartline was open underneath early and often, and monopolized the Dolphins' receiving game.

Fantasy Spin: Hartline had the best fantasy game of his career since his 12-catch, 253-yard game versus the Cardinals a season ago. The high volume of targets and yards is not a common occurrence for Hartline, though he's been known to cash in when opportunities come his way. With another favorable matchup on the docket for Week 2, Hartline wouldn't shock us with another strong output, but Mike Wallace may find himself more involved after getting targeted just five times in Week 1.
