Dolphins issue lengthy injury list for Week 3


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(9/19/2014) The Dolphins have officially ruled out running back Knowshon Moreno (elbow) for their Sunday game against Kansas City. Also out are linebacker Koa Misi (ankle) and guard Shelley Smith (knee).

Listed as doubtful are defensive end Terrence Fede (knee), center Mike Pouncey (hip) and linebacker Jordan Tripp (chest).

Tight end Charles Clay (knee) and guard Billy Turner (foot) are considered questionable.

The probables are safeties Walt Aikens (hand) and Louis Delmas (calf), tackle Branden Albert (shoulder) and linebackers Jonathan Freeny (calif), Jelani Jenkins (shoulder) and Philip Wheeler (thumb).


Can't trust Charles Clay Week 3


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(9/18/2014) Charles Clay is dealing with a knee injury and his production has been limited to start the season with just nine catches for 58 yards on 14 targets.

Even though the Chiefs have allowed three touchdowns to tight ends this year in Delanie Walker, Julius Thomas and Jacob Tamme, we still can't recommend starting Clay.

He now has five games in a row without a touchdown and we're not expecting that streak to end even with the favorable matchup.

For a complete list of Week 3 options, read my latest Start 'Em and Sit 'Em.


Charles Clay limited in practice Wednesday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(9/17/2014) Dolphins tight end Charles Clay was limited in practice Wednesday.

Charles Clay doing individual drills


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Despite seven catches, Charles Clay does little in loss


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/14/2014) Dolphins tight end Charles Clay got a lot of work, but was mostly held in check in a 29-10 loss to the Bills in Week 2.

Clay, who had just two receptions in Week 1, hauled in seven passes Sunday. Unfortunately, he had a long catch of just 12 yards, and ended up racking up just 31 in the game.

Clay has disappointed through the first two games, catching just nine passes for 58 yards. He will look for more success when the Dolphins host the Chiefs in Week 3. 


Knee can't keep Charles Clay out Sunday


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/14/2014) Dolphins tight end Charles Clay is in uniform and active for Week 2 against the Bills, as expected. He was listed on the injury report for Sunday's game as probable with a knee injury.

Charles Clay mostly silent in victory


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/7/2014) Dolphins tight end Charles Clay failed to make much of an impact in the season-opening 33-20 win over the Patriots in Week 1 Sunday.

Clay was second on the team with six targets, but only brought in two of those passes. He racked up 27 yards, the majority of which came on a big 24-yard reception.  

Clay had trouble standing out in the passing game, and will look for better results when the Dolphins visit the Bills in Week 2. 


Charles Clay looking for better results vs. Pats


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/4/2014) Dolphins tight end Charles Clay enjoyed a breakout season a year ago, but had trouble finding success against the Patriots. He will look to flip that script in Week 1, as the Dolphins get set to open the season against the Patriots Sunday.

Clay had 759 yards and six touchdowns a year ago, but was held out of the end zone in two matchups against the Patriots, while totaling just 43 receiving yards on six catches. That was pretty atypical for last season, as tight ends racked up an average of 64.5 yards on 5.9 receptions per game against the Patriots a year ago. Their defense allowed opposing tight ends to score 8.3 Fantasy points per game, the eighth-highest total in the league.

Clay emerged as a pretty useful Fantasy option, but the Patriots just had his number a year ago. This could end up being a game where Miami has to throw the ball around a lot, but Clay is pretty tough to rely on at this point. He is more of a low-end Fantasy starting option for Week 1, though there are worse options if you have to start a second tight end. 


Three Dolphins miss practice Wednesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(9/3/2014) Three Dolphins were not able to practice Wednesday: center Mike Pouncey, defensive end Terrence Fede (knee), center Mike Pouncey (hip) and linebacker Jordan Tripp (chest).

The following players were limited participants in Wednesday's practice: safety Walt Aikens (hand), tight end Charles Clay (knee), linebacker Koa Misi (shoulder), defensive end Derrick Shelby (illness), kicker Caleb Sturgis (groin), cornerback Jamar Taylor (hip), guard Billy Turner (foot) and linebacker Philip Wheeler (thumb).


Charles Clay seeking to run with momentum in 2014


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(8/29/2014) Dolphins tight end Charles Clay emerged as one of the premier pass-catchers at his position in the NFL a year ago. He caught 69 passes for 759 yards and six touchdowns. He snagged at least five passes in seven of 16 games.

But Clay is far from satisfied. He yearns to improve his blocking, reading of coverages and reliability.

"I had drops last year that were unacceptable," Clay told the Miami Sun-Sentinel. "My standard is higher than anybody could ever have for me.

"After last year people came to me and said, 'Hey, you had this good year.' I don't look at it that way. I look at all the things I could have done better. I think about all the plays I left on the field."

Clay caught just one pass for 18 yards in the preseason after missing time with a knee injury. He has proclaimed himself ready for the regular season.

Clay stopped short of saying he'll practice this week.

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Charles Clay to miss 'multiple practices'


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/4/2014) Dolphins starting tight end Charles Clay suffered a knee injury and will miss "multiple practices," reports the Miami Herald. Clay is coming off a breakout season in which he caught 69 passes for 759 yards and six touchdowns and added a rushing score.

Charles Clay finishes with 43 yards in loss


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/29/2013) Dolphins tight end Charles Clay had a solid performance in Week 17 to finish the season, in a 20-7 loss to the Jets.

Clay hauled in four of the six passes thrown his way for 43 yards, good for second on the team. He added one carry, but was stuffed at the line of scrimmage on a fourth-and-short attempt.

Clay enjoyed a nice breakout season in 2013, finishing with 69 receptions for 763 yards and six touchdowns. He had just 445 yards in two previous seasons. 


Charles Clay hoping for more success vs. Jets


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/27/2013) Dolphins tight end Charles Clay hasn't made much of an impact in recent games, a trend he will try to change in Week 17 against the Jets.

The Jets have been middle of the pack when it comes to defensive tight ends this season, but Clay had little trouble with their defense in an earlier matchup.  Clay torched the Jets for 80 yards on seven receptions in a Week 13 win, one of his best games of the season.

Clay has been a consistent play maker for the Dolphins this year, and his previous success against the Jets makes him a solid play for Week 17. 


Charles Clay struggles again in shutout loss


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/22/2013) Dolphins tight end Charles Clay had another subpar performance in Week 16, as the Dolphins fell 19-0 to the Bills.

The Dolphins offense struggled to get much going overall in the shutout, and Clay was the victim of a poor performance from his passing game. He Clay hauled in four receptions for 32 yards, while being targeted seven times.

Clay has just five receptions over the last two games, but still enters Week 17 against the Jets with solid numbers across the board. He has 65 receptions for 716 yards and six touchdowns, as well as one on the ground. 


Charles Clay searching for the end zone


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/19/2013) Dolphins tight end Charles Clay has only failed to reach 10 yards receiving twice this season; last week against the Patriots, and Week 7 against the Bills. He will be looking to bounce back in Week 16, when the Dolphins look to avenge the earlier loss to the Bills.

Clay had just one reception for 7 yards when Miami lost to the Bills in Week 7, but he made it count, at least, scoring his third touchdown of the season. He has six overall on the season, and will be looking to add to that total, against a Bills' defense that has failed to cover tight ends well recently.

Of the eight touchdowns tight ends have scored against the Bills this season, four have come over the last four games. That bodes well for Clay, who has emerged as one of Ryan Tannehill's favorite targets. Each of our three Fantasy experts has Clay among the top-10 for tight ends, so consider him a solid option for Week 16. 


Charles Clay held in check in Week 15


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/15/2013) Dolphins tight end Charles Clay was nearly nonexistent Sunday against the Patriots, as he posted his least productive game of the season in Week 15.  

Clay, who had 14 receptions for 177 yards and two touchdowns in his previous two games, was barely involved Sunday. He was targeted a season-low two times in the passing game, hauling in one for 6 yards in a 24-20 win.

Clay is still enjoying the finest season of his career, despite Sunday's poor showing. He enters Week 16 against the Bills with 61 receptions for 684 yards and six touchdowns. 


Charles Clay looking for success vs. Patriots


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/14/2013) Dolphins tight end Charles Clay is enjoying one of the best stretches of his career, having topped 85 yards in three of the last four games. If he is to keep his stretch of strong play up in Week 15, Clay will need to do so against a Patriots team that thoroughly held him in check in their last meeting.

Clay was held to just 37 yards on five receptions in a Week 8 matchup against the Patriots. That actually makes Clay something of a rarity, as opposing tight ends have had plenty of success against the Patriots this season, as New England allows 8.8 Fantasy points per game to tight ends, the 23rd highest total in the league.

The Patriots are coming off arguably their worst performance against tight ends, as two different Browns found the end zone in Week 14. Three of the Patriots' last four opponents have racked up double digits in points for tight ends, so Clay looks likely to continue rolling in Week 15. Consider him a solid Fantasy option at this point.
