|Charles Clay is overlooked in fantasy football circles when the talk turns to tight ends. After being used mostly as a fullback/H-back earlier in his career, last season he was the starter at tight end by default after Dustin Keller was lost in the preseason. He impressed the team enough that the Dolphins did not seek an upgrade at the position this season. He caught 69 passes for 759 yards with six touchdowns and added a rushing touchdown as well. Last season he received seven carries from the fullback position, which adds to his value if he sees some goal line carries again this season. With neither Lamar Miller nor Knowshon Moreno excelling in short yardage situations that could be a possibility. In the passing game, Clay is a matchup problem as he's fast enough to separate from linebackers and is an effective runner after the catch who can overpower cornerbacks and safeties if he gets room in the secondary. If one was to miss out on a top-five tight end in your draft, waiting late on Clay isn't the worse strategy one could employ.

FFToday's Take: Clay's knee has bothered him all year, but has been "limited" in practice for most of the season. However, beat writer Barry Jackson has since tweeted that his hamstring is ailing him now. With a 4:25 ET start, owners probably need to start considering other options. Dion Sims and Gator Haskins (in that order) are the next men up for Miami.
