Miami Dolphins tight end Charles Clay continues to be an erratic fantasy option at best.
Clay had a big day against the San Diego Chargers in Week 11. He caught six passes for 90 yards and a touchdown, which was more than enough to rank him in the top three scorers in standard leagues.
The production is not all that surprising considering San Diego entered the matchup with a defense ranked in the bottom five against the pass.
That's exactly what Clay is—a matchup-based play.
An inconsistent, matchup-based play.
Clay's four prior games before torching San Diego each resulted in single-digit points as he failed to record more than 37 yards. His best game of the year came in Week 2 against Indianapolis (another weak secondary) as he caught five passes for 109 yards.
Given the nature of Clay's production, he should be avoided at all costs in the coming weeks. Two of his next three matchups come against defenses currently ranked in the top five against the pass (Carolina and Pittsburgh).
Sell high on Clay's major game in Week 11, if possible. He simply cannot be counted on weekly, even at one of fantasy's worst positions each week.
