29-Year-Old Wide ReceiverWR
Chicago Bears
2021 Fantasy Outlook
When healthy, Grant is one of the league's most explosive options in the return game and a fairly capable big-play threat on offense. However, he hasn't played a full season since 2017, and now Grant is facing the most competition for offensive touches that he's faced in his career. He's only on the fantasy radar in deep leagues that award points for return yardage. Read Past Outlooks
$Signed a four-year, $19.7 million contract with the Dolphins in August of 2019. Traded to the Bears in October of 2021.
Scores first touchdown with Bears
WRChicago Bears
December 5, 2021
Grant caught five passes for 62 yards and a touchdown in the Bears' 33-22 loss to the Cardinals on Sunday.
ANALYSIS
With Allen Robinson (hamstring) and Marquise Goodwin (foot) missing this contest, Grant picked up where he left off in Week 12 when he saw an increased role in the offense. Once the Bears fell behind by double digits, Grant saw most of his seven targets, and he led the team in receiving yardage. As long as Robinson and Goodwin remain out, Grant could serve as a depth option for fantasy managers.

2016
Injuries have limited Grant to back-to-back 10-game seasons, though he did begin his career by playing all 32 games in his first two campaigns. His utility as a big-play threat didn't materialize in 2019, as Grant managed just 19 catches for 164 scoreless yards across 33 targets, but he did remain a consistent asset on special teams. A Week 11 kick-return score served as the fourth special-teams touchdown of Grant's career, and the 5-foot-7, 171-pounder has now put together two straight years with over 500 kick-return yards despite missing a combined 12 games in that span. He stands to compete with Isaiah Ford for snaps as Miami's No. 3 wideout.
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.
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.
