2018 Fantasy Outlook
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. Read Past Outlooks

Flashes upside Week 3
WRMiami Dolphins
September 24, 2018
Grant caught two of three passes for 70 yards and two scores in Sunday's 28-20 win over the Raiders.
ANALYSIS
Grant was targeted on the game's highlight play, scoring on a 52-yard bomb from Albert Wilson on a trick play. The third-year wideout then nabbed an 18-yard pass from Ryan Tannehill in the red zone, in addition to serving as Miami's punt returner. Grant is a weekly boom-or-bust play, lacking the target share to put up consistent numbers.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2017
2016
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.
