Fasano is undecided if he will return for the 2018 season, Hal Habib of the Palm Beach Post reports.

EDGE Analysis

Fasano, now 34 years old, is set to be an unrestricted free agent at the end of the league year but is strongly considering retirement in the name of his long-term health. However, the veteran has never been much of a fantasy factor and that remained true with the Dolphins this year, as he only caught 12 of 16 targets for 107 yards and a touchdown in 16 games. He'd almost certainly remain a blocking specialist if he does return for a 13th professional season in 2018.

Fasano is expected to start at tight end over the Dolphins' final two games of the season after Julius Thomas (foot) was placed on injured reserve Wednesday, Chris Perkins of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.

EDGE Analysis

Thomas had been averaging 4.4 targets per game for the season, and while a few of those looks should be dispersed to Fasano and fellow tight end MarQueis Gray, quarterback Jay Cutler likely will hone in on his wideouts and running backs more frequently. The 33-year-old Fasano, who has snagged 11 passes for 106 yards and a touchdown this season, mostly functions as a blocker at this stage of his career.

Fasano brought in both of his targets for 11 yards in Thursday's 40-0 loss to Baltimore.

EDGE Analysis

Fasano was catchless through five games, but has come alive with five catches -- including a touchdown -- over the past two weeks. Off-season acquisition Julius Thomas has been a disappointment this season and the Dolphins may be phasing Fasano into the fold. The two each saw 36 snaps on offense on Thursday.

Fasano and the Dolphins have reached an agreement, ESPN's Jeff Darlington reports.

EDGE Analysis

Fasano was previously five season (2008-2012) in Miami, where he cemented his reputation as one of the league's better in-line blocking tight ends. He had a career-low eight receptions last season in Tennessee, despite playing in all 16 games for the sixth time in his 11-year career. With recently-acquired Julius Thomas serving as the receiving threat, Fasano's role in Miami will he heavily tilted toward the blocking side.

Fasano caught his lone target for 12 yards Saturday in Jacksonville.

EDGE Analysis

Fasano has eight catches this season, with no two coming in the same contest. The 32-year-old veteran is six receptions shy of his previous career low with just one game to play.

Fasano caught one of two targets for 17 yards Sunday against the Broncos.

EDGE Analysis

Fasano was actually the team's third-leading receiver on an off day for quarterback Marcus Mariota. Don't expect the veteran tight end to climb higher than that in any of Tennessee's final three games, as he still hasn't recorded multiple catches in any contest this season.

Fasano failed to come down with his lone target Sunday in Chicago.

EDGE Analysis

Fasano remains at six catches for 54 yards on the season. The veteran tight end serves almost exclusively as a blocker while Delanie Walker hogs all the receiving glory.

Fasano caught a nine-yard touchdown on his lone target Sunday against the Packers.

EDGE Analysis

Fasano has exactly one catch in six different weeks this season and zero multi-catch efforts. Two of those grabs have gone for touchdowns, but don't expect him to keep finding pay dirt.

Fasano caught his lone target for nine yards Sunday in San Diego.

EDGE Analysis

Fasano will run the occasional route to keep defenses honest, but serves primarily as a blocking tight end. It's telling that he only got one target in a game that saw quarterback Marcus Mariota attempt 45 passes.

Fasano (ankle) caught one of two targets for 10 yards Sunday against the Colts.

EDGE Analysis

Fasano was able to suit up despite sitting out Wednesday's practice. He scored a touchdown last week, but still hasn't caught more than one ball in a game this season.
