Fans of the Miami Dolphins that play fantasy football will be happy to know that on Monday, CBS Sports released their fantasy football rankings of the Dolphins players. It’s probably no surprise that Dolphins running back Jay Ajayi is the team’s top-rated player in fantasy football, according to the site.
Ajayi was ranked fifth among running backs in standard leagues and seventh in PPR (point-per-reception) leagues.
Miami receivers Jarvis Landry and DeVante Parker also made the CBS Sports rankings as they come in at number 25 and 36 in PPR leagues. The website expects Landry to score 213.4 points this season, while they believe Parker will score 191.1 points.
Interesting enough, here’s what CBS Sports expects from Dolphins head coach Adam Gase this season.
“While the number of plays has decreased the past three seasons in Gase’s offense the pass/run split as remained pretty similar,” said CBS Sports Senior Fantasy Writer Heath Cummings. The Dolphins threw the ball 54 percent of the time in 2016. Gase’s offenses have thrown the ball 55 percent of the time over the past three years. I’m bumping up the Dolphins play total in 2017 to 950, with that same 55/45 split in favor of passing. I’d expect about 2/3 of those targets to go to receivers, with the rest being equally distributed between the backs and tight ends.”
