NFL Fantasy Football Tuesday: Miami Dolphins sleepers for 2015

New, comments

We take a look at three sleeper Miami Dolphins players you can get late in your fantasy football draft.

The Miami Dolphins are a little over a week from reporting for the 2015 edition of training camp. Last week, our Fantasy Football Tuesday took a look at three top offensive fantasy options from the Dolphins. This week we are shifting to the sleepers, players you can get later in the draft and will be able to score you some points throughout the season.

Jordan Cameron

The Dolphins added tight end Jordan Cameron as a replacement for Charles Clay this offseason, and he should become an even bigger part of the offense than Clay was last year. Quarterback Ryan Tannehill likes using his tight ends, and Cameron, a Pro Bowler, has the talent to make things happen whenever Tannehill looks his way. Cameron has the potential to be drafted earlier in your fantasy draft than we are projecting, but he also could fall out of a draft completely. The main issue is not Cameron, but rather the media's focus on the Dolphins looking at the turnover at wide receiver. Cameron is the forgotten man on the Dolphins' offense, and that could be your benefit.

Projected draft position: 13-15th round

Jay Ajayai

Rookie running back Jay Ajayi is an interesting one to watch in preseason. The Dolphins proved last year that they are concerned about giving Lamar Miller the 20 carries a game usually given to a starting running back. Ajayi should be the primary option for the coaches when it comes to keeping Miller's carries down, and the rookie should respond. A hard runner who, without the concerns of a past knee injury, should have been taken much earlier in the draft, Ajayi could add excitement to the Miami offense, and should snipe several touchdowns this year.

Projected draft position: 10-12th round

Kenny Stills

Jarvis Landry. Greg Jennings. DeVante Parker. Kenny Stills. What appears to be a fourth position on the depth chart should prove to be a powerful spot for Stills. He is probably, in all honesty, sitting second on the depth chart behind Landry at this point, assuming the recent surgery to his foot keeps rookie Parker from full integrating into the offense early in the year, and that Jennings is not the Green Bay Packers Jennings anymore. That means Stills, who adds speed to a wide receiver corps full of sure-handed catchers, should get plenty of touches throughout the year. He is not going to replace Charles Johnson or Dez Bryant on your roster, but he should be set to give you some great value with a late round flyer on him.

Projected draft position: 14-15th round
