Greg Camarillo trade has little relevance

One of the fallacies of the Greg Camarillo trade to the Minnesota Vikings on Wednesday is that the Miami Dolphins will miss him, and that there's a need to tweak the projections for Brandon Marshall and others. I'm not thinking that way.

Steve Mitchell/US PresswireGreg Camarillo caught 50 passes for the Dolphins in 2009.
Marshall is obviously the lead wide receiver on the Dolphins, and one of the top fantasy options, but Camarillo's slot role had pretty much been usurped by Davone Bess anyway. As AFC East blogger Tim Graham notes, the Dolphins have receiver depth to spare, so acquiring defensive back Benny Sapp from the Vikings in the deal makes sense. I can't say Bess is really more valuable for fantasy purposes today than he was yesterday, despite Camarillo's subtraction.

We project Bess for a rather large decline in catches and yards, which makes sense since Marshall is likely to play such a prominent role and basically hog most of the attention. Frankly, I'm a little skeptical quarterback Chad Henne will benefit at the same rate by having a potential 100-catch option. I rank him as a reliable backup, 17th at quarterback, much like I do Matt Ryan of the Atlanta Falcons. Ryan has Roddy White, Henne has Marshall, and the wide receivers can still put up monster numbers even if the quarterbacks do not and the team's running backs thrive. Like the Falcons, there really aren't other wide receivers on Miami likely to make a big impact in fantasy. I'd rather draft Bess than presumptive starter Brian Hartline, but neither make my top 70 at wide receiver; I expect Bess to catch more passes, with neither scoring more than four or five times.
