Miami Dolphins tight end Charles Clay caught six passes for 42 yards and a touchdown in the Week 4 loss to the New Orleans Saints. Clay is a multipurpose weapon who can run the ball as well as catch it but he wasn't involved early on. Mike Wallace was again a non-factor so the Dolphins finally got Clay involved in the game in the fourth quarter and he scored the only receiving touchdown. Clay can play fullback as well as tight end and also has a rushing touchdown on the year. He took over tight end duties after the loss of Dustin Keller in the preseason.
Fantasy impact: Clay is a versatile player who is capable of making plays in the passing game and the running game. He didn't make his mark in the first half of Monday Night Football until the Dolphins wised up and got him involved. He caught everything thrown his way and scored the only receiving touchdown for Miami of the night. With Mike Wallace struggling and the Dolphins offense sputtering the Dolphins need to continue to get Clay involved. Ryan Tannehill was erratic at times but Clay has been one of his most reliable targets and should continue to get more looks. The Dolphins face the Baltimore Ravens in Week 5.
