2019 Fantasy Outlook
The undersized Grant notched career-highs in catches (21), targets (34), and yards (268) while scoring two touchdowns during the third year of his career, in addition to doing most of his damage on kick and punt return duties with 763 total yards and two touchdowns in 2018. However, his season came to an end due to an Achilles' injury sustained Week 10. Though the Dolphins have a plethora big-play speedsters on the roster -- Grant, Kenny Stills, Brice Butler, Albert Wilson and Kenyan Drake all boast 40-yard dash times below 4.50 -- Grant's outstanding performance as a return man in 2018 will likely secure him a spot on the 53-man roster if he's able to recover from his injury without losing agility or speed.

Barely involved in win
WRMiami Dolphins
November 11, 2019
Grant caught both targets for 15 yards during Sunday's 16-12 win over the Colts.
ANALYSIS
Grant appeared to have a shot at an expanded role in Miami's offense with Preston Williams (knee) on injured reserve, but he concluded Sunday's win with another mundane receiving line. In leagues that don't reward fantasy points for return yards, Grant doesn't warrant roster consideration.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2018
2017
2016
A 2016 sixth-round pick, Grant was a quiet contributor to the Dolphins offense until flashing for a 4-107-1 stat line against the Chiefs in Week 16 last season. Grant played strong and physical at the point of catch last year, but is undeniably limited due to his 5-foot-7, 169-pound frame. Despite coming on down the stretch, Miami's crowded receiving room likely means that Grant will be relegated to a special teams/depth role entering 2018.
Active for all 16 games last fall, the 2016 sixth-rounder primarily served as a returner, averaging 23.1 yards on 19 kick returns and 8.3 yards on 20 punt runbacks. With Jarvis Landry, DeVante Parker and Kenny Stills entrenched at the top of the depth chart, Grant will compete with Leonte Carroo, Rashawn Scott, Isaiah Ford and Damore'ea Stringfellow for the final few spots at wide receiver.
Grant was the Dolphins' sixth round pick in the 2016 NFL Draft. This was a surprise selection as the Dolphins already had Jarvis Landry and DeVante Parker on board and drafted Leonte Carroo in the third round. So why did Miami take Grant? Speed, speed, and more speed. Grant is small to say the least – 5-foot-6, 165 pounds – which makes him extremely elusive. The question of course will be, can his body withstand the pounding of the NFL? Only time will tell. Grant will be a danger to take the ball to the house whenever he catches it but will also be a danger to end up on injured reserve.
