The Miami Dolphins have received their second bit of good news on the injury front this morning, as Pro Football Talk is reporting that Dolphins No. 1 wide receiver Brian Hartline will play today against the Indianapolis Colts. His status was in doubt after being listed questionable with groin issues.
Quarterback Ryan Tannehill has always had his eye this season, except for the past few games when Hartline’s production has tailed off. Tannehill is expected to start today, but the Dolphins will put in Matt Moore if their prized rookie suffers a setback during the game.
Hartline is the team’s top receiver, and he should have a solid day against a poor Indianapolis Colts secondary. Moore doesn’t target Hartline as often as Tannehill, but he should still see plenty of looks and probably deserves a start for fantasy purposes.
Both key offensive players were listed questionable for the Dolphins, but I do think the player who will have the biggest came on O for Miami is running back Reggie Bush. He’s in line for a huge game against a Colts defense that allows 4.8 yards per carry against, and he’s definitely a must-start for fantasy purposes. Daniel Thomas won’t take too many carries away from him, but I do think that Thomas deserves a look as a flex option.
