Jaylen Waddle (ankle/quad) considered questionable for Dolphins

Miami Dolphins wide receiver Jaylen Waddle (ankle) is considered questionable for the Wild Card Round versus the Kansas City Chiefs on Saturday night, per head coach Mike McDaniel.

What It Means:

McDaniel said he’s “optimistic” that Waddle will be available after missing the final two games of the regular season. Waddle has been able to practice each day this week and is on track to play. That will result in less playing time for Cedrick Wilson, Robbie Chosen, and Chase Claypool. Waddle was held to 3 catches and 42 yards on 6 targets in Week 9 when the Dolphins visited Kansas City.

numberFire's models project Waddle for 11.0 FanDuel points in the Wild Card Round, with 7.4 targets, 4.7 receptions, and 65.5 yards. The Chiefs allowed the third-fewest FanDuel points to wide receivers this season and their pass defense finished third-best in our opponent-adjusted efficiency rankings.
