Opposing Player Spotlight: Week 3 Youth Jerome Baker Jersey , Oakland Raiders The Dolphins are leading the AFC East and are preparing to take on another conference opponent in an attempt to reach a 3-0 start. This week, the Oakland Raiders are coming to Hard Rock Stadium in search of their first win of the 2018 season.Each week of the 2018 season, I’m highlighting one player on the opposing team that Dolphins fans should be watching out for. This week, that player is Oakland Raiders tight end Jared Cook.Fact CheckPosition: TEExperience: 10th seasonAge: 31Height/Weight: 6’5”, 254 lbsCollege: South CarolinaStat ReviewCook has gotten off to a sizzling start this s eason, showing a strong connection with quarterback Derek Carr in the duo’s second year together. Through two games, Cook has amassed 13 receptions for 229 yards with a yards-per-catch (ypc) average of 17.6. For reference, that ypc figure would place him at third for the 2017 season, only behind the Jaguars’ Keelan Cole (18.4) and the Lions’ Marvin Jones Jr. (18.0). Cook has recorded almost one third of his entire yardage total from last season (688) through just two weeks. While his pace is sure to drop off Youth Reshad Jones Jersey , his heavy usage is notable under new (old) Raiders head coach John Gruden. It’s possible that Cook will continue to blossom in a new scheme despite having not topped 700 yards since 2011. Key MatchupsLast season, the Dolphins struggled mightily to defend the tight end position. In fact, Cook racked up 126 yards against Miami last November. Over the course of the 2017 season, the Dolphins were 32nd in the league in receptions allowed to tight ends (94), 31st in yards allowed (1034), and 31st in touchdowns allowed (10).For the Dolphins to keep Cook in check this time around, the team’s linebacking corps will have to vastly improve it’s coverage of tight ends which was Miami’s largest blemish on defense last season. I would watch for the coaching staff to have Jerome Baker, who is Miami’s quickest linebacker, to cover Cook early and often. That being said http://www.thedolphinsfootballauthentic.com/akeem-spence-jersey-authentic , rookie defensive back Minkah Fitzpatrick, who has already proved himself a very capable starter on multiple occasions through two games, should be heavily involved in blanketing Cook as well. DeVante Parker was full go for practice after missing the game against the New England Patriots. The wide receiver was a surprise inactive on Sunday, but him being active wouldn’t have changed anything against the Patriots. Reshad Jones has missed the past two games but was at practice, just like last week when we believed he would be facing the Pats. A.J. Derby continues to be sidelined, so look for Mike Gesicki to get the start against the Cincinnati Bengals.You can check out that story here, and the rest of the day’s round-up below.DeVante Parker back on practice field for Dolphins and full goComing off a sound defeat by the Patriots, the Dolphins are back on the practice field this morning...Dolphins Defensive LineMiami Dolphins, Jordan Phillips glad to be rid of one anotherThe Dolphins didn’t need Jordan Phillips when they drafted him.Dolphins SecondaryMiami Dolphins must replace injured Bobby McCain in secondaryDolphins cornerback Cordrea Tankersley went from being a full-time starter as a rookie to fighting h...Dolphins 2018 SeasonAC In The AM: Four Games In.
