Is the end here for Wake. Old, coming off injury, lost the snaps in the base package. Feels like he still has some upside, but having a hard time rostering him in my idp league.

Dolphins DC Vance Joseph confirmed that Jason Jones will start over Cameron Wake at defensive end.
Jones will start in base sets opposite former first overall pick Mario Williams. Joseph said Wake is capable of starting but wants to limit his snaps by mostly using him in pass-rushing packages. It's probably the right move with Wake coming off a torn Achilles.

Depends on you scoring and bench depth. He's a high-variance DL3 for me at this point. Nice to have in a favorable bye-week matchup, but not a guy I want to roll out there every week.

Wake only played on just over 35% of snaps. Jones played on almost 2/3rds (65%)

Hard to read too much into that at this stage with him still recovering and not match fit, but id expect those roles swing back as Wakes match fitness increases.

Coaches say he's a rush specialist now. They want to keep him healthy.

Ha, true :D

But then he was likely drafted in any number of IDP/Dynasty hybrid leagues, which is why im not talking about Devin Taylor, or Graham etc(PS WW)!

Was trying to suggest, i agree he was worth stashing in competitive/ deep leagues/ for those who stream DL.

@Elm: Yeah, read that - but even pass rush specialists player in the ~50-60% snap count range. Frank Clark@SEA for example? Played 55% of snaps (Bennett/DE, Avril/DE, Reed/DT & Rubin/DT were 89%, 83%, 62% & 47% respectively)

Wake has never been an 85%+ snap player, even in his best season (2012. Dont know enough about his snaps in 2010).

So, im expecting Wakes usage to sneak up to Jones' over the next few weeks as thats completely in-line w/specialist snaps, but below what he used to be in his prime (75-85%).

They said on the pre season they wanted to rotate Wale with Mario. That played out week 1. I'm guessing it will continue.

Id agree in the short term, but id be on the other side of this season long ... Wouldnt be on the table about it, only that id feel bereft if i didnt make a case for it :thumbright:

Chances are - on past form - it could be moot as injury is the likeliest of all outcomes on past form :(

Bit like Sio, hes still working his way back from Inj. His first game since inj was only a few weeks ago. He was candidly open about not being match fit & still not 100%

Situational pass rushers usually play more snaps than he did (55%+ vs his 35%).

At 34, and on $8.5m vs the cap this year, if MIA look like they could push for the playoffs, i dont think theyd hesitate to play him in an increased capacity down the stretch, but im still expecting his weekly snap %age to trend upwards to a ceiling of about ~65%.

Weeks 1 thru 5: 35 (At this point we started talking about his snaps) then 20, 43, 21 & 35%

6 PIT W 30-15 74.5%
7 BUF W 28-25 56.1%
8 NYJ W 27-23 67.2%
9 @SDG W 31-24 55.8%
10 @LAR W 14-10 75.8%
11 SFO W 31-24 65.4%
12 @BAL L 6-38 62.5%
13 ARI W 26-23 65.7%
14 @NYJ W 34-13 55.3%
15 @BUF W 34-31 52.2%
16 NWE L 14-35 49.3%

Probably rotated him more last cple of games with a postseason berth looking more likely.

Who knows, but dipped down again for sure, albeit nothing like the early weeks.

Played 64% of snaps vs PIT in the playoff loss.

Over those 12 game (6 to playoff), 62% snap avg.
