Brian Hartline caught nine passes for 127 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's Week 13 win over the Jets.

Hartline led the Dolphins in receiving and finished with a team-high 15 targets. He was able to take advantage when matched up with Dee Milliner in coverage, and beat Antonio Cromartie on a 31-yard slant route for a touchdown in the third quarter. It was just his second 100-yard game of the season. Hartline has 62 receptions for 804 yards and three touchdown through 12 games. His lack of big-play ability will continue to limited him as a WR4 going forward.

Brian Hartline caught five passes for 78 yards in Sunday's Week 12 loss to the Panthers.

Hartline was very effective, catching all five of his targets and getting open on big third-down conversions. Of course, his inability to make big plays after the catch or be a factor in the red-zone makes him a WR4 in fantasy formats. Hartline has one 100-yard game and two touchdowns all season. Last year, he had three 100-yard games and one touchdown in 16 outings.

Brian Hartline caught five passes for 65 yards in Sunday's Week 11 win over the Chargers.

Hartline had an awful day. He dropped a wide open pass over the middle early on, slipped on a route that nearly cost Ryan Tannehill an interceptions and had another drop late. Still, Tannehill kept the faith and targeted Hartline a team-high 13 times. Don't expect a better performance out of Hartline against the Panthers in Week 12 -- he's a WR4 that hasn't reached 70 yards or scored a touchdown since Week 3.

Brian Hartline caught five passes for 57 yards in Week 10 versus Tampa Bay.

Hartline was targeted eight times on the night and worked against rookie CB Johnthan Banks for much of the evening. Hartline figured to become Ryan Tannehill's go-to receiver after Brandon Gibson (torn patellar tendon) went down, but new slot receiver Rishard Matthews was that guy Monday, seeing 14 targets. Hartline has topped 69 yards receiving just once this season and hasn't scored since Week 3. He is who we thought he was. Hartline's a WR4.

Brian Hartline had three catches for 39 yards in Thursday night's Week 9 win over the Bengals.

Hartline was a non-factor in the first half, but came up with a sideline catch at the end of the fourth quarter that set up the game-tying field goal. He finished behind only Mike Wallace with five targets and should continue to be featured in the short-to-intermediate passing game with Brandon Gibson out for the season. Harline has 38 catches for 477 yards and two touchdowns through nine weeks.

Brian Hartline caught four passes for 37 yards in the Dolphins' Week 8 loss to New England.

Aqib Talib's absence didn't end up mattering much. Ryan Tannehill spread the ball around against New England -- completing passes to nine different receivers -- but no Fins pass catcher exceeded 41 yards. Possession receiver Hartline still hasn't hit 70 yards in any game since Week 1. He'll be a poor WR3 option when the Dolphins take on the Bengals this Thursday night.

Brian Hartline caught six passes for 69 yards in the Dolphins' Week 7 loss to Buffalo.

Possession receiver Hartline made some critical first-down catches, but he still hasn't cleared 70 receiving yards in any game since the season opener. He's a low-ceiling WR3 option entering a Week 8 game in Foxboro.

Brian Hartline had four catches for 60 yards in Sunday's Week 5 loss to the Ravens.

Hartline had seven targets and was the clear No. 2 option behind Mike Wallace. He got the majority of his yardage in Miami's two-minute offense at end of the second quarter, and was limited to just two catches for nine yards for the rest of the game. Hartline should continue to be viewed as a WR4 in re-draft leagues.

Brian Hartline caught three passes for 34 yards in Monday night's Week 4 loss to the Saints.

Hartline was targeted just four times, which was fourth on the team behind Brandon Gibson, Mike Wallace, and Charles Clay. On the lone misfire, Ryan Tannehill was picked off by Jabari Greer on a slant route Hartline looked to somewhat give up on. Tannehill seems to favor Hartline, but it wasn't their night. After four games, Hartline is on pace to catch 84 passes for 1,088 yards and eight touchdowns. The yards and catch totals are nearly identical to his 2012 numbers. Hartline scored just once last season. He's a WR4 most weeks.

Brian Hartline caught four passes for 56 yards and one touchdown in Sunday's Week 3 win over the Falcons.

Hartline was targeted six times. He was wide open in the back left corner of the end zone for his 18-yard touchdown. With two scores through three games, Hartline has already surpassed his 2012 touchdown total. He's nothing more than a WR4. The Dolphins head to New Orleans next Monday night.
