Mike Gesicki will be in for a challenge on Sunday.

For what it’s worth, the Miami Dolphins have been playing better football. I know that’s probably not welcome news for the folks hoping for a high draft pick, but it is what it is. One of the players who has stepped up their game over the past couple of weeks is tight end Mike Gesicki. After starting off slow in the first few games of the season, Mike Gesicki has begun to find a role in the Dolphins’ passing game.

The tight end caught three passes for 28 yards in Sunday’s game against Indianapolis. Those are not eye-popping numbers, but he did average 9.3 yards per catch. Sunday’s game was on the heels of a strong performance against the Jets the week before. In that game, he caught six passes for 95 yards, averaging 15.8 yards per catch.

He has received more targets in the past two weeks, getting six passes thrown to him each week. He is definitely trending in the upward direction, and that is good news for the Miami Dolphins, especially in the future. However, he will have his work cut out for him this week against the Buffalo Bills.

Buffalo allows only 188. 7 yards per game. That is third-best in the National Football League. In their last game against Cleveland, the Buffalo defense showed some rare cracks. They allowed 221.7 yards on the afternoon in what was a wild game. However, I don’t expect Buffalo’s defense to show that same kind of vulnerability on Sunday against Miami.

Mike Gesicki will certainly have his work cut out for him. The entire passing game will have their work cut out for them. As A result, I could see his upward momentum coming to a halt on Sunday. This Buffalo defense is no joke, especially their pass rush. My guess is that he will receive a fair share of targets. Whether he will be able to gain separation and get yards after the catch is something that will remain to be seen.

It will certainly be an interesting thing to watch on Sunday. Gesicki has shown he can be a productive part of the offense. This is a nice test for the Dolphins offense in general. If he can put up decent numbers against this defense, that will undoubtedly give him confidence I am hoping he can, and in turn continue the upward momentum he’s been experiencing.
