    In Good Hands With Fasano

    Fantastic Fasano- From PFF
    Still, there are plenty who can be proud of their performances. Take Anthony Fasano for example, who went the entire year without dropping a single pass. He may not excite a fanbase like some other tight ends, but hes once again proven to be a reliable weapon for his quarterback.
    He was the only tight end not to drop a pass, while three others all ended the year with only the one drop. Of them, Jacob Tamme caught the most balls and so finished second overall, highlighting how effective he was despite being a situational player.

    Rank Name Team Targets Catches Drops Catchable Drop Rate
    1 Anthony Fasano MIA 61 41 0 41 0
    2 Jacob Tamme DEN 80 52 1 53 1.89
    3 Zach J. Miller SEA 46 38 1 39 2.56
    4 Jeff Cumberland NYJ 52 29 1 30 3.33
    5 Tony Gonzalez ATL 121 93 4 97 4.12
    6 Dennis Pitta BLT 90 61 3 64 4.69
    7 Heath Miller PIT 93 71 4 75 5.33
    8 Greg Olsen CAR 96 69 4 73 5.48
    9 Ben Watson CLV 74 49 3 52 5.77
    10 Dallas Clark TB 69 47 3 50 6

    I've read a number of posters complain about Fasano's hands. Let's put that to rest. In addition to the above from last year, the year before he caught 32 with 1 drop, and the year before that he caught 39 wit two drops. He also has not had a fumble in three years, scoring 5, 5, and 4 TD's, while being a top blocker.

    Complain, if ya like about his speed but, not his hands, production, or value to the team.

    That is excellent no doubt, but Ive watched him play and he is not a great pass catching TE. He is a solid all round TE. Id love to keep him as our #2 and get another guy to work the seams.

    I have no problem with Fasano. We have bigger needs at WR and CB.

    He was MIA for a massive part of the year, when Tannehill could have used a security blanket. He had less receiving yards than every other starting tight end and some backups. He's a mediocre blocker, and some people want to crown him an end zone threat because of his five touchdowns, which puts only puts him T-16. I really don't understand the praise he gets - probably one of the most overrated Dolphins of the last few years. He's a #2 on the vast majority of teams or even a #3 on a few others. Give him backup money or move on.

    The problem with Fasano is that he does not fit well into our new system where the tight end is expected to play as a big body slot receiver and be able to create miss matches vs linebackers and safeties.

    Granted, and it does not look like Clay or Egnew are going to be that man. Clay has done his damage out out the H-back, and may just be a situational weapon. Without seeing practices, only place Egnew has played, no idea what Sherman and Philbin think of him.

    Regardless, Fasano is an asset to the team in blocking, great hands, and scoring some TD's. Why would we not want to keep that? How important is scoring TD's to this team in the red zone?

    He's not going to cost a lot, and has proven his worth by his play over the past three years. How many other players can we say that about?

    I see Fasano tied for #10 on TDs, with Aaron Hernandez and Vernon Davis. I also see him at #3 in 2011 on yards per catch among all TE's, and #4 the year before. I also completely disagree on his blocking ability.
