The Miami Dolphins will host the New York Giants on Sunday. Tight end Mike Gesicki is the main guy in Miami, however Drew Smythe plays a major role in the offense as well.

Fantasy Football analysis: Dolphins TE Mike Gesicki, Durham Smythe

So far, Gesicki has 52 receptions for 596 and two touchdowns. Smythe has 25 receptions for 253 yards. Gesicki has played better but Smythe has done a good job with his role.

The New York Giants passing defense allows 243.1 which ranks 17th in the NFL. Their secondary has dealt with injuries and that has hurt them a ton. Aside from last week, the Giants have had major struggles stopping tight ends. There will be fewer targets to go around with DeVante Parker returning from injured reserve, but I fully expect Gesicki to get the ball a ton this weekend.

Fantasy Start/Sit Recommendation

In both season-long fantasy and DFS, Gesicki should start. In both season-long fantasy and DFS, Smythe should sit.
