Adam Gase in Miami: What are the fantasy implications?

On January 6th, 2016, Adam Gase was hired as the new head coach of the Miami Dolphins. After spending a year as the offensive coordinator of the Chicago Bears, Gase takes his offensive knowledge to South Beach. Although the Bears finished 6-10, Gase was praised for his work with Jay Cutler. Cutler reduced his INTs from 18 to 11, increased his passer rating from 88.6 to 92.3 and improved his yards per attempt from 6.8 to 7.6. Under Gase’s tutelage, Cutler improved and looked like a better, all around QB. In 2014, Gase was the OC of the Denver Broncos who lost to the Seattle Seahawks in Super Bowl 48. He had Peyton Manning as his QB, but players such as C.J. Anderson and Emmanuel Sanders flourished under his play calling.

Heading into 2016, many are wondering how Adam Gase will affect the Miami Dolphins from a fantasy perspective. Hey, it’s never too early to look ahead to next season, right?! Let’s check it out!

Waiver Wire for Week 16

Another NFL week in the books, and another NFL week plagued by injuries. This has been a year many fantasy owners may want to forget. It is very possible some of you may have lost half your team due to injuries. For those of you lucky enough to have survived the casualties of war, or even suffered a blow or two in Week 15, I am going to look at possible waiver claims that may help you capture that championship trophy you have been chasing since the opening night of the NFL season. Let’s dive in!

At the quarterback position, there were a few names who suffered injuries. Marcus Mariota (MCL sprain), Brock Osweiler (left shoulder injury) and T.J. Yates (torn ACL) were all injured on Sunday afternoon. Osweiler was able to finish the game, but Yates and Mariota were not as fortunate. Their 2015 season is over. Although these are not huge names, some may have been stuck starting one of these QBs. If you are looking to stream a QB in week 16, here are some options:
