The Dolphins’ bye week has arrived at an ideal time for the coaching staff to take stock of what’s worked and what can be tinkered with to help a 3-3 team break through the pack in a parity-heavy AFC.
One area that offensive coordinator Mike Sherman has been pleased with, though, is the play of tight end Anthony Fasano.
“I think Anthony Fasano is having a hell of a year, I’ve got to be honest with you,” Sherman said in his weekly press conference. “He’s exceeded my expectations from the mini-camp and the preseason.
“He just keeps getting better and better and more familiar with the offense. He’s doing stuff out there that I would expect him to do next year or the year after, maybe, but he’s really taking it to another level.”
Through six games, Fasano has 22 catches for 176 yards and a team-leading two receiving touchdowns. The fifth-year Dolphins tight end is on pace to set a career high in receptions (39).
