2016

2015

Clay signed a hefty free-agent deal this offseason with the Bills after posting serviceable numbers the last couple years with the Dolphins. In Miami, Clay made due in an offense that had trouble stretching the field. That shouldn't be an issue in Buffalo where the Bills boast two of the league's fastest receivers in Sammy Watkins and Percy Harvin. With that deep-threat duo drawing safety attention to the outside, the middle of the field should be open for the elusive Clay, who had nearly half his yards come after the catch the last two years. Clay is not a big tight end at 6-3, 255, but he had 20 red-zone targets (4th among TE) last season and 13 inside the 10 (2nd). He only converted two of those into touchdowns, however, after five in 2013. The Bills plan to use Clay in tight, split wide, in the slot and in the backfield, which should ensure a healthy number of targets. He might need the help because the Bills have a number of pass-catchers to feed, including LeSean McCoy, Fred Jackson and Robert Woods in addition to Watkins and Harvin.

2014

Dustin Keller's knee injury in training camp last year opened the door for Clay, who went on to have a top-10 fantasy season at tight end. Clay is more of an H-back than a traditional tight end at an undersized 6-3, 255, but he is elusive in the open field and makes defenders miss. He totaled 382 yards after the catch last season, fifth among tight ends. And despite his stature, he still caught 10-of-14 passes in the red zone for five touchdowns, including 6-of-7 inside the 10-yard line for four scores. Clay should again see a large share of the targets, though second-round pick Jarvis Landry, a possession receiver with good hands, could potentially cut into his third-down work. Clay had a team-leading 18 third-down receptions last season with a third of his targets coming on third down. The passing game was mediocre last season, but a better deep ball by Ryan Tannehill -- the Dolphins ranked 26th last year with only 24 pass plays of 25-plus yards -- would give Clay more space to work underneath.

2013

Clay is likely to compete with rookie Dion Sims as the Dolphins' No. 2 TE.

2012

Clay was an intriguing project under the Tony Sparano regime. It remains to be seen how the Joe Philbin regime will use him. Anthony Fasano, current starter, may not be a fit in the new offense, so Clay could see more time on the field if he can adapt to the west coast offense quicker then Fasano.

2011

Clay can play either fullback or tight end and could be a threat to Anthony Fasano if the Dolphins decide that TE is his best position in the pros. The Dolphins have not been happy with Fasano and Clay could possibly challenge for the starting position with a strong camp. That being said Clay could at least eat in Fasano's playing time as the season progresses but neither TE is a fantasy target as the Dolphins don't possess the greatest of offenses.
