2019 Fantasy Outlook
Although Gesicki was a semi-regular for the Dolphins in his rookie year - he played 399 snaps and started seven of 16 games - he was seldom used as a pass catcher. He topped 31 yards receiving just once, didn't score a single touchdown and averaged 9.2 yards per catch. On the bright side, Gesicki was an active receiver during his Penn State days, not much went right for anyone in Miami last year, and tight end is one of the most difficult gigs for a young player to learn. Perhaps the new coaching staff - along with new quarterbacks Josh Rosen and Ryan Fitzpatrick - will find a way to engage Gesicki in Year 2. The 23-year-old was one of the stars of the 2018 combine, and there's not much standing between him and a three-down role in Miami. At the very least, Gesicki should start the season on your watch list. Read Past Outlooks

Career-high receiving yards
TEMiami Dolphins
October 13, 2019
Gesicki caught three of seven targets for 51 yards in Sunday's 17-16 loss to Washington.
ANALYSIS
Gesicki posted the highest receiving yardage total of his young career during the Week 6 loss, although his catch rate left something to be desired. The Dolphins stand to continue giving Gesicki ample opportunities as the season continues, in order to further his development as an aerial weapon, but he nonetheless remains difficult to rely on for fantasy production. The second-year pro has a tough matchup against the Bills coming up during Week 7.

2018 Fantasy Outlook
Rookie tight ends are commonly treated with skepticism in the fantasy community, though we occasionally see one break through (consider Evan Engram last year). Gesicki's YPC dropped 4.2 yards in his final Penn State season, but he otherwise remained productive, then dominated the rest of his position group at the 2018 Combine. Checking in at 6-6, 247, he finished first or second among tight ends in every drill, including a 4.54 40 time and 41.5-inch vertical jump. Although the aggregate move says you should fade rookies at this position, Gesicki has the athleticism and opportunity to be one of the rare exceptions. The Dolphins don't have much else at tight end, and they need to account for Jarvis Landry's 161 vacated targets.
