Miami Dolphins tight end Durham Smythe (hamstring) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice, per David Furones of the South Florida Sun Sentinel. The 28-year-old could be having his reps managed, considering he didn't have to leave last Sunday's game at any point. Smythe drew a lone target for a 15-yard catch amid Week 3's 70-point bonanza versus the Denver Broncos despite Jaylen Waddle's (concussion) absence. While the sixth-year man could get more attention if Waddle cannot get cleared for Week 4's potential shootout with the Buffalo Bills, Smythe would still only be worth a shot in the deepest of TE-premium fantasy leagues.

Miami Dolphins tight end Durham Smythe gave fantasy managers some hope in Week 1 with the amount of targets he saw, but it hasn't turned into much at all. Smythe is better left on the waiver wire, let alone the bench. While wide receiver Jaylen Waddle (concussion) has yet to clear concussion protocols, it doesn't necessarily mean that Smythe will see meaningful volume against the Broncos. Quarterback Tua Tagovailoa is going to look for the receivers first and foremost, while running back Raheem Mostert should get going on the ground as well. Until Smythe can put up some sustainable production, he'll remain off the fantasy radar.

Miami Dolphins tight end Durham Smythe saw a decrease in targets in Week 2 during the lower-scoring contest against the Patriots. The 28-year-old finished with 23 yards while catching all three of his targets. He finished with the same amount of targets as both Salvon Ahmed and Braxton Berrios this time around. Smythe's role in the offense is way too volatile to trust him in any given week. He still is off of the fantasy radar heading into Week 3 and could start to become more relevant once bye weeks and injuries come into play. Until then, Smythe is better left on the waiver wire.

Miami Dolphins tight end Durham Smythe is taking full advantage of Mike Gesicki's departure so far. The 28-year-old saw seven targets in the team's first game which ended up as a shootout. Against a weaker defense like the Chargers, this type of game is more attainable for Smythe. In Week 2, he'll likely see a lot of Kyle Dugger who is only allowing 6% of targets per route run versus the 14% of targets per route run that Smythe saw in Week 1. Fantasy managers should wait and see if the trend from the first matchup continues before deploying him into starting lineups.

Miami Dolphins tight end Durham Smythe turned seven targets into three catches for 44 yards during Sunday's season opener versus the Los Angeles Chargers. Smythe wasn't expected to have a huge game, so his final contributions to the box score should be viewed as a great result as the Dolphins continue to evaluate their tight ends in the post-Mike Gesicki era. Another solid game in Week 2 could vault Smythe into TE2 territory.

Miami Dolphins tight end Durham Smythe is not a viable fantasy option heading into Week 1 against the Los Angeles Chargers. While Smythe is listed first on the depth chart following Mike Gesicki's offseason departure, the 28-year-old needs to show a steady flow of production in the passing game before he can even be considered in deeper leagues. Even if Smythe's pass-catching skills do develop, Miami is not expected to incorporate a heavy dose of tight-end targets into its offensive plans this year. You can leave Smythe on waivers in all formats.
