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

Still rehabbing Achilles injury
WRMiami Dolphins
Achilles
April 16, 2019
Grant (Achilles) is still working his way back to full strength, Cameron Wolfe of ESPN.com reports.
ANALYSIS
Grant suffered the season-ending injury Nov. 11 and had surgery a week later, but he denied early reports that the issue was an Achilles rupture. Whatever the case, he's still in the rehab process five months later, presumably hoping to be ready for the start of training camp in late July. The 26-year-old figures to have a role in the return game and could even challenge DeVante Parker for a regular spot in three-wide sets.

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.
