The Miami Dolphins aren’t likely to make the playoffs this season, but things seem to be trending in the right direction for the squad.
After upsetting the Baltimore Ravens on Thursday, the Dolphins have won two straight contests for the first time this season. They’re also no longer in the basement of the AFC East, as that distinction currently belongs to the New York Jets.
On top of that good news, it sounds like Miami might have some help on the way. According to head coach Brian Flores, there’s a chance that wide receiver Will Fuller will be available next week.

Fuller’s stint with the Dolphins has been extremely rocky so far, as the 27-year-old has appeared in just two games this season. He has just four receptions for 26 yards on the year.
Still, many folks feel that Fuller is capable of being a nice offensive weapon. He had a great 2020 season with the Houston Texans, as he racked up 53 receptions for 879 yards and eight touchdowns. He did all of that over just 11 games.
If Fuller is available next week, it should provide the Dolphins with a nice boost in their matchup against the Jets. There are some very winnable games coming up on Miami’s schedule, and if the squad can capitalize, there might be a chance for the Dolphins to get back near the .500 mark.
Fuller is a free agent after the season ends, so his time with Miami could be nearing an end. The former first-round pick is surely hoping to get back on the field and make an impact before the campaign comes to a close.
