Charles Clay: Past News Updates   ( ▲ View most recent update )

Clay (back) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Cowboys.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

With Clay out this week, Chris Gragg and Nick O'Leary are on hand to fill in at TE for the Bills on Sunday, though neither of the two represent a high-percentage fantasy play. With wideout Robert Woods on IR, Sammy Watkins is clearly the Bills' top weapon in the team's Week 16 passing attack.

As a result, Chris Gragg is in line help fill the void created by Clay's absence, but he's a fantasy roll of the dice in Week 15, having recorded just nine catches for 115 yards in 10 games to date this season.
Clay (back) missed practice for a second straight day Thursday. “I don’t want to eliminate him, but obviously missing another day of practice it doesn’t look great,” said head coach Rex Ryan.

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2015

Subscribe now to see our 2015 outlook.

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.
