Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Hartline suffered a torn PCL in Week 17 of 2013, but his recovery has been going well, and he remains on target to be ready to start the season. During his 2013 campaign, he had career highs in receptions (76) and touchdowns (four) en route to his second consecutive season with 1,000 or more receiving yards. He'll once again be a top target for quarterback Ryan Tannehill alongside their deep threat, Mike Wallace.
An MRI confirmed that Hartline suffered a PCL tear in Sunday's game against the Jets, the Miami Herald's Armando Salguero reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

The report adds that Hartline will not require surgery to address the issue and that he will be ready for training camp this coming summer. The wideout recorded 76 catches for 1,016 yards and four TDs in 2013, while being targeted 134 times, which placed him 20th in the NFL in the category. After agreeing to a five-year $30.8 million contract with the Dolphins last March, Hartline is around for the long haul, and given the relatively minor nature of his knee ailment, his 2014 status should not be impacted by Sunday's injury.

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

Someone had to be the Dolphins' No. 1 receiver last year, and it turned out to be Hartline. Hartline had a solid, if unremarkable season, averaging 8.3 YPT and 14.6 YPC despite playing with a rookie quarterback learning on the job. He scored only one touchdown all year, however, something that can be explained in part by his lack of red-zone targets (only 12 of 131). At 6-2, 195 and with decent straight-ahead speed, Hartline is more steady than explosive. He has good hands – only four drops – and he's a good route runner. The Dolphins apparently believe in Hartline as they signed him to a five-year deal with $12.5 million guaranteed. But the team also added Mike Wallace in a far bigger deal, and Wallace will be the team's field stretcher and likely lead it in targets.

2012

Hartline showed some signs a year ago that he could be a productive NFL receiver, with 15.7 YPC and 8.3 YPT despite quarterback play that was average at best. Just keep in mind that was with Brandon Marshall drawing double teams. With Marshall gone, Hartline has a bigger opportunity, but assuming he retains the job he’d also draw more of the defense’s focus. At 6-2, 195, Hartline has decent size, good speed and solid hands (only three drops), and he has enough height and reach to go over smaller defensive backs. Moreover, the Dolphins – led by former Green Bay offensive coordinator Joe Philbin – are installing a more timing-based up-tempo offense, something that should benefit the passing game as a whole. It would probably be better for Hartline if Matt Moore or even David Garrard were to win the Dolphins’ quarterback job over rookie Ryan Tannehill, but all three will compete during camp. Finally, while Hartline sits atop the depth chart at press time, he’s hardly established enough to guarantee a starting job. Legedu Naanee, Marlon Moore, Clyde Gates and others will also be in the mix with Davone Bess likely working out of the slot.

2011

Hartline's first season as a starting receiver for Miami was average at best as he caught 43 balls for 615 yards a score. He may start opposite Brandon Marshall but Davone Bess is still targeted more in the slot. The theory with Hartline is that his speed will force the opposing safeties to play off the line of scrimmage and cheat towards his side thus allowing Marshall more room underneath and the Miami running back with more holes to run through. Hartline could be challenged for the starting job by Edmond Gates, but is a good bet to remain the starter at least at the beginning of the season.

2010

Hartline flashed some big play potential during his rookie season with the Dolphins, catching 31 passes for over 500 yards. The addition of Brandon Marshall to the receiving corps leaves one starting job up for grabs, and where most assumed it would be Davone Bess's job to lose, the Dolphins have let it be known that it is an open competition as Bess may be best suited for the slot role, leaving the starting job opposite Marshall to either Greg Camarillo or Hartline.

2009

The fourth round pick in the 2009 draft will compete for a starting job in training camp, but will probably end up making the team as a backup Wide Receiver and special teams player.
