Charles Clay maintained his must-start fantasy status on Sunday in the Miami Dolphins’ game against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

He reeled in seven receptions for 98 yards and a two touchdowns. His performance ups his totals to 60 receptions for 679 yards and six touchdowns for the season. He continues to be Ryan Tannehill’s favorite red-zone weapon and one of is favorite targets altogether.

Miami’s next three opponents are the New England Patriots, Buffalo Bills and New York Jets. New England entered the week with the No. 10 pass defense in the NFL in yards surrendered, while Buffalo was No. 15 and New York was No. 25.

Clay only caught five receptions for 37 yards against the Patriots in Week 8 and one reception for seven yards and a touchdown against the Bills, but the vast majority of tight ends are not consistent fantasy producers. He should be started for the remainder of the fantasy playoffs regardless of opponent, especially coming off back-to-back five-catch, 75-yard performances.
