You know we're nearing or have reached the bottom of the fantasy football injury report barrel when Brian Hartline 's name is brought up, but here we are. Hartline practiced fully on Friday and is listed as probable for Sunday's game versus the Texans. Hartline returned to full practice last week after missing every preseason game due to a left calf injury.
No, you're not starting Hartline this week. He should be placed deep on your bench. But when you consider the dearth of talent at wide receiver for Miami, Hartline should at least be on benches in 12-team leagues. He is not a superb talent, but it can't take much to be better than Legedu Naanee. We'll see who Ryan Tannehill favors in the first few games, but Hartline has a legitimate shot to be the Dolphins' No. 1 WR this season. That's worth something, right?
