Will play Sunday
TEMiami Dolphins
December 17, 2021
Long (illness) will play Sunday against the Jets.
ANALYSIS
Long started the week absent from practice, but after logging a limited session Thursday, he was a full participant Friday. The 2021 third-round selection would likely benefit if Adam Shaheen (knee) were to sit, but he'd still be behind at least Mike Gesicki and Durham Smythe on the Dolphins' tight end positional depth chart.

2021 Fantasy Outlook
Tight ends are rarely productive as rookies, and Long may have little opportunity in 2021 behind clear No. 1 option Mike Gesicki. However, Gesicki and No. 2 option Durham Smythe are both entering the final year of their rookie deals. After impressing as a receiver at Boston College, Long could see significant future opportunity if Gesicki isn't signed long-term.
