I would have Grant in more than just 4 WR sets.

How Jakeem Grant played late in the season made a case for the Dolphins using more four-receiver sets at times next season. And when I asked Gase about that possibility in late December, he seemed intrigued by that option.

“It’s an unusual thing for a defense to see when you do that,” Gase said. “Some teams, when we haven’t shown it and then when you throw it in there, they’re not really prepared for it; they’re not really sure what we’re going to do with it because we start moving guys all over the place and different guys in the backfield, different guys in different spots, the slot outside. I think when we have multiple guys that can play inside between Kenny [Stills], Jarvis [Landry] and Jakeem [Grant], that just causes issues where guys are. It’s hard to focus on one player and it’s fairly easy for our guys to move around when we’re in that package.”

Gase said Grant “causes a lot of problems for the defense because you can put him in the slot, you can put him outside, you can put him in the backfield. We’re not afraid to give him the ball as a running back. The speed obviously is his … something that really is a challenging thing for the defense. I don’t think guys realize how quick and how fast he can accelerate until they get in a game.”

Ya, and who said that in 2016.. Dude, a little late.

I would like to see him come out of the backfield.. They did do it a few times.

We fans do not get to see the practices, and I am sure that is where Gase makes his game time decisions, but we fans see what a player does in games. When Belichick signs a free agent (Wes Welker), he doesn't target them based on practices but what a player does in a game ... especially when they face him.

The Patriots do alot of designed packages for different players and use there skill set.
Players that don't get many snaps per game but are an important part of the game plan.
That is good for a number of reasons including getting everyone on the roster involved in the game.. playing time.. experience..

They even do it with lineman... Cannon at one time was a sort of run specialist on the line... Now a productive player on the line.

Grant, Landry and Drake being used in different formations to find LB mismatches could drive defensive coordinators nuts.

Grant is why you don't give up on a player too quickly. He should produce some points next year.

I wish we kept 7-11. He has a gnack for getting open.

I 'm not sure 7-11 would not be anything special on most teams. He is what that system has allowed him to become. And that QB.
