Tyreek-Lite: Dolphins WR Jakeem Grant’s Huge Fantasy Football Stash Upside

Dolphins third-year WR Jakeem Grant has been a play-making machine to begin 2018. In the first three weeks, Grant’s housed a 102 yard Kickoff Return, sliced through the defense on an impressive 18 yard shovel-pass TD, and gone deep for a 52 yard score. Despite the minimal touches, Grant’s 30.5 FPs rank him as the WR40 — ahead of Demaryius Thomas, Michael Crabtree, and Allen RobinsonHe could explode with increased usage, making him a huge-upside fantasy football stash.

With explosive speed and creative usage, Grant often draws Tyreek Hill comparisons — and not just because he used to catch passes from Patrick Mahomes at Texas Tech. Grant’s 4.38 speed translates onto the field, where he operates seemingly at another gear than nearly everyone else. He can both blow past coverage for the deep ball, and rip off huge gains when afforded space, making him a near-perfect fit for Adam Gase‘s YAC-centric offense. As already flashed with Grant in 2018,  Gase loves utilizing screens, creative runs, shovel passes, and short routes to get his playmakers in space and let them do their thing.

Recall – following a Week 7 injury to Jeremy Maclin, Hill became a ~40% snap player… and rode this to WR6 Value the rest of way. Hill ultimately scored 12 TDs on the season, and became a Stretch Run Hero for many owners.

After breaking open the contest with Oakland, Grant could follow a similar trajectory and see his usage begin creeping up. Either way, it’s only a matter time — whether if it’s because he’s making weekly highlight reel plays, or Devante Parker‘s vagina never heals.  At only 10% owned, Grant seems like dynamite well-worth sitting on.
