He doesn’t have the flare that Mike Wallace does, but Brian Hartline is easily the Miami Dolphins‘ most consistent fantasy football option. With the team’s running back situation incredibly confusing, Hartline offers something that fantasy owners can’t put a price on…consistency.
In three games, the Dolphins’ slot wide receiver has managed to snag two touchdowns, which is one more than the high-priced Mike Wallace. Unlike Wallace, Hartline has gone three weeks without a performance less than six points. In addition, Miami quarterback Ryan Tannehill has shown us time and time again that Hartline is easily his favorite target.
Since Tannehill has taken over with the Dolphins, he has continually looked Hartline’s way. Now, Hartline did only catch one touchdown in 2012, so it remains to be seen if the Tanny-Hartline chemistry is strong enough to spill into the end-zone. Either way, Wallace is the kind of fantasy option that gives you fits, while Hartline is the player that is more consistent than most.
Currently, Hartline is on pace to catch more than twelve touchdown passes, which would make him a top-10 wide receiver in next year’s fantasy football draft. Obviously, it would be a miracle for Hartline to nearly triple his career touchdown total in just one season, but it’s still possible. As of now, Hartline still remains the most consistent Dolphins’ target, but it remains to be seen if he has the explosiveness that Wallace posses.
