Brian Hartline scores first touchdown of the season


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(9:36 pm ET) Dolphins wide receiver Brian Hartline came down with his first touchdown catch of the season in Week 3 against Kansas City.

Hartline broke free on a crossing pattern and caught a playaction pass from Ryan Tannehill in the end zone for a 1-yard score. Hartline suffered a left elbow injury in the third quarter, but managed to work through the pain. He was targeted seven times and finished with three receptions for 25 yards and a touchdown in a 34-15 defeat.

Hartline has not had more than 436 receiving yards in a game this season. He will look to get back on track in London against the Raiders in Week 4.


Brian Hartline struggles to break out


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/14/2014) Dolphins receive Brian Hartline hauled in five passes in Week 2 against the Bills, but was mostly held in check in a 29-10 loss Sunday.

Hartline was targeted eight times and brought in five of them, but managed to make little impact in the loss. He had a long reception of just 11 yards, and finished with just 36 overall.

Hartline has seven catches through two games, for just 62 yards and no touchdowns. He will try to get on the board in Week 3 against the Chiefs.  


Brian Hartline finds little success in Week 1


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/7/2014) Dolphins wide receiver Brian Hartline took a backseat in the team's plans Sunday, in a 33-20 win over the Patriots in Week 1.

Hartline was targeted just four times in the passing game, good for fourth on the team. He hauled in two of those passes for 26 yards, with a long reception of 15. He will look for more success in Week 2 against the Bills.


Brian Hartline not a great choice for Week 1


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/4/2014) Dolphins wide receiver Brian Hartline is never a particularly exciting Fantasy option despite coming off consecutive 1,000-yard seasons, and things shouldn't be much different as he gets ready to open the season in Week 1 against the Patriots.

Hartline put up pretty pedestrian numbers in two games against the Patriots a year ago, totaling 107 yards on nine catches, and he has topped eight Fantasy points in a game against the Patriots just twice in nine career games. He could have an even tougher time Sunday, given the Patriots addition of Darrelle Revis this offseason. Hartline might not be the Dolphins' top receiver, but he is more likely to line up out wide against Revis than Mike Wallace, who should be moved around the formation more.

Hartline is a fine receiver to have on your Fantasy roster for the right matchups, but he doesn't seem likely to go wild against the Patriots. Consider him just a low-end flex option for Week 1. 


Brian Hartline has one grab in preseason debut


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8/16/2014) Dolphins wide receiver Brian Hartline, who sat out the preseason opener, returned to game action Saturday night against Tampa Bay.

Hartline caught a short pass on a crossing route to convert a third down. He worked the first couple of series with the first-team offense and finished with just one reception on three targets.

Dolphins sit out three starters for preseason opener


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8/8/2014) The Dolphins will be without three offensive starters Friday night against Atlanta in preseason action, per the Miami Herald. The team held out wide receivers Mike Wallace and Brian Hartline and tight end Charles Clay.

Brian Hartline attends Dolphins practice


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/27/2014) Dolphins receiver Brian Hartline rejoined the team at an OTA practice on Tuesday, the Miami Herald reported. He tore a PCL in his knee but didn't undergo surgery. 

Dolphins draft WR Jarvis Landry


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/9/2014) With the No. 63 pick in the NFL Draft, the Dolphins selected receiver Jarvis Landry from LSU.

Landry could compete to be the No. 3 receiver for the Dolphins this year behind Mike Wallace and Brian Hartline. He could challenge Brandon Gibson, Rishard Matthews and Armon Binns for playing time right away.

Landry had a big season in 2013 with 77 catches for 1,193 yards and 10 touchdowns. He isn't overly fast (he ran a 4.77 40-yard dash at the NFL Combine), but he does have good hands and is physical.


Brian Hartline won't need surgery for knee injury


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12/30/2013) MRI results showed Dolphins wide receiver Brian Hartline suffered a torn PCL Week 17 against the Jets. However, no surgery will be required and Hartline is expected to be ready for training camp, according to The Miami Herald.

Brian Hartline unable to return from knee injury


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/29/2013) Dolphins wide receiver Brian Hartline was unable to return to the field in Week 17, after suffering a knee injury in the first quarter.  Hartline suffered the injury on his second reception of the game, and it would prove to be a season-ender as the Dolphins' season came to an end.

Hartline finished the game with two receptions for 38 yards, bringing his totals for the season to 76 for 1,016 yards, his second 1,000-yard season in a row. The extent of the injury is not yet known. 


Brian Hartline questionable to return with knee injury


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/29/2013) Dolphins wide receiver Brian Hartline went down with a knee injury in the first quarter of Sunday's game against the Jets, the extent of which is not yet known.

Hartline suffered the injury following a first-down reception that saw him surpass the 1,000-yard mark for the season. He immediately had to be helped off the field, and received medical attention at the trainer's table.

The nature of the injury is not yet known, and Hartline's return is questionable as of halftime. 


Dolphins healthy for Sunday game


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/27/2013) The Dolphins have placed 10 players on their Friday injury report, but only running back Daniel Thomas (ankle) is questionable for the critical battle against the Jets. The others are probable, including quarterback Ryan Tannehill (knee). The other offensive players are wide receivers Brian Hartline (knee) and Marlon Moore (wrist).

The defensive probables are defensive backs Jamar Taylor (hamstring), Don Jones (elbow/abdomen) and Chris Clemons (knee/hamstring), linebacker Koa Misi (triceps) and tackles Jared Odrick (wrist) and Paul Soliai (ankle).


Dolphins receiving duo nearing twin milestones


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/26/2013) The Dolphins enter Week 17 against the Jets with plenty to play for, including a potential playoff spot. Wide receivers Brian Hartline and Mike Wallace are playing for something else as well this Sunday; a spot in team history.

Hartline leads the team with 978 receiving yards on the season, with Wallace right behind him at 905. If both players reach 1,000 yards, they will become the first Dolphins duo to do so since 1991, and just the third to do so in the team's history.

Wallace has the tougher road ahead of him to reach the milestone, with 95 yards in front of him. All Hartline has to do is replicate his performance against the Jets in Week 13 (127 yards), while Wallace needs to do a bit more than his seven-catch, 82-yard showing in that game.

Few teams throw the ball more than the Dolphins, and the Jets have proven vulnerable against the pass, so both players have a good chance to put up numbers. Against a Jets defense that allows the ninth-most Fantasy points to opposing wide receivers, both Hartline and Wallace have value for Fantasy purposes. Consider Wallace a solid starter, while Hartline remains more of a low-end choice.


Drops limit Brian Hartline's production Sunday


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/22/2013) Dolphins wide receiver Brian Hartline did not have a particularly strong game in Week 16, despite leading the team in yards in a 19-0 loss to the Bills.

Hartline caught just two of the 10 passes thrown his way in the game, and dropped many more. He ended up with 53 yards, but could have had more, as one of his drops appeared likely to end with a long touchdown, as he got behind the secondary.

Despite the subpar performance, Hartline enters Week 17 against the Jets within spitting distance of his second 1,000-yard receiving season in a row. He has 1,078 yards on 74 receptions heading into the final game of the season. 


Brian Hartline approaching second 1,000-yard season


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/19/2013) Dolphins wide receiver Brian Hartline doesn't have the best track record against the Bills in his career, as he has yet to reach 70 yards in seven career games against the AFC East foe. He will try to end that streak in Week 16, when the Dolphins face the Bills in Buffalo Sunday.

Hartline has topped out at 69 yards against the Bills twice, including in a Week 7 matchup earlier this season. The Bills haven't exactly lit the world on fire against wide receivers this season, allowing 24.6 Fantasy points per game, however that number is just 15.0 in the last six games heading into Sunday.

Hartline is nearing his second straight 1,000-yard season, and could reach that milestone with 75 yards Sunday. Unfortunately, he has topped that total just three times this season, and not at all in his career against the Bills. He should be considered more of a low-end Fantasy option at this point.  


Brian Hartline held out of end zone in Week 15


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/15/2013) Dolphins wide receiver Brian Hartline had a solid game in Week 15 against the Patriots Sunday, but his two-game scoring streak came to an end in a 24-20 win.

Hartline snagged five of the eight passes thrown his way for 70 yards, with a long reception of 19 yards.

Hartline remains the team's leading receiver on the season, as he heads into Week 16 against the Bills with 72 receptions for 925 yards and four touchdowns.  


History not on Brian Hartline's side


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/12/2013) Dolphins wide receiver Brian Hartline has scored in consecutive games for the first time this season, but his track record suggests he will struggle to make it three in a Week 15 matchup against the Patriots.

Hartline has faced the Patriots eight times in his career, and has scored just two touchdowns, with none coming since September of 2011. He was held to a pedestrian four receptions on 37 yards against New England in an earlier meeting this season, and is averaging 48.6 yards per game in his career against them.

Wide receivers are averaging just 20.5 Fantasy points per game against the Patriots, the 13th-lowest total in the league. Hartline is on a role, but is more of a low-end Fantasy option for Week 15. 


Brian Hartline scores again in win


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/8/2013) Dolphins wide receiver Brian Hartline scored for the second game in a row Sunday, in a 34-28 win over the Steelers in Week 14.

Hartline, who recorded his third touchdown of the season last week, added No. 4 in the third quarter Sunday, on a 4-yard reception from Ryan Tannehill. Hartline dragged his feet on the side of the end zone but was originally ruled out. A replay review overturned the call and rewarded Hartline with the score.  

Hartline finished the game with five receptions for 51 yards, as he continues to lead the team in most receiving categories. He enters Week 15 against the Patriots with 67 receptions for 855 yards, while ranking second on the team with four touchdowns. 


Brian Hartline too inconsistent to rely on


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/5/2013) Coming off arguably his best game of the season, Dolphins wide receiver Brian Hartline heads north to take on the Steelers in Week 14.

The Steelers have been a very middle-of-the-road passing defense this season, holding opposing wide receivers to 21.0 Fantasy points per game, good for 15th in the league. That number is much higher in recent weeks, as the Steelers are surrendering 29.8 Fantasy points over the last five contests.

Despite a matchup that might not be as bad as it looks at first glance, Hartline is unlikely to enjoy an encore performance. He has topped 100 yards just twice this season, in Weeks 1 and 13. He has been reliable, but hardly explosive for much of the season, a trend that should continue in Week 14. Consider Hartline just a low-end starting option. 


Brian Hartline tops 100 yards in win over Jets


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/1/2013) Dolphins wide receiver Brian Hartline broke out in Week 13 against the Jets, as he led the team in receiving in a 23-3 win.  

Hartline was targeted 15 times in the passing game, and took advantage in a season-best performance. He led the team with nine receptions for 127 yards, 31 of which came on his third touchdown of the season. He matched his season-high in catches, while edging out his Week 1 total of 114 yards.

Hartline is edging closer to his second 1,000-yard season in a row. He heads into Week 14 against the Steelers with 62 receptions for 804 yards. 


Brian Hartline faces solid matchup


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11/28/2013) Dolphins wide receiver Brian Hartline continues to be a solid option in the passing game, but that hasn't translated to much Fantasy value this season. Even with a solid matchup in Week 13 against the Jets, that is not likely to change much this Sunday.

The Jets have been one of the league's worst defenses against wide receivers, allowing 25.3 Fantasy points per game. Unfortunately, Hartline's track record does not make a big performance likely. Even during his big breakout season a year ago, Hartline managed just 82 yards on five catches in two games against the Jets.

Hartline has five catches in each of the last three games, while racking up between 57 and 78 yards in each game. He has been dependable, but rarely more than that, a trend that is unlikely to turn around in Week 13.  


Brian Hartline earns compliment from Joe Philbin


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11/27/2013) Dolphins wide receiver Brian Hartline hasn't caught a touchdown pass since Week 3, but his consistency earned praise Wednesday from Joe Philbin.

"He's a very dependable guy, a guy we have a lot of confidence in," Philbin said via the team website. "He's having a good year."

Hartline has caught at least three passes in every game and has 53 receptions for 677 yards and two scores on the season.


Hartline hauls in five passes in Week 12


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11/24/2013) Dolphins wide receiver Brian Hartline was a dependable target for Ryan Tannehill yet again Sunday, in a 20-16 loss to the Panthers in Week 12.

Hartline brought in all five passes thrown his way for 78 yards, his best total since the first game of the season. Hartline enters Week 13 against the Jets with 53 catches for 677 yards and two touchdowns.  


Brian Hartline unlikely to break out vs. Panthers


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11/22/2013) Dolphins wide receiver Brian Hartline remains the team's most dependable option in the passing game, but that hasn't often turned into big Fantasy value. With the stingy Panthers in town in Week 12, he will likely struggle to break loose yet again this Sunday.

Hartline has not scored a touchdown since the third game of the season, and hasn't topped 70 yards receiving since Week 1. Those trends don't bode well for his Fantasy value, as he has to face arguably the league's best passing defense this week.

The Panthers have not allowed an individual wide receiver to reach double figures in Fantasy scoring over any of the last eight games. Given the tough matchup, as well as Hartline's lack of big-play ability, Fantasy owners are best served avoiding him for Week 12. 


Brian Hartline doesn't do much with targets against San Diego


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11/17/2013) One would think that Dolphins wide receiver Brian Hartline had a big game Sunday if informed that he was targeted 13 times. But one would think wrong.

Hartline struggled to turn those targets into receptions against the Chargers. He caught just five for 65 yards, including a 16-yarder on his team's first possession of the game.

Miami hosts Carolina next Sunday.
