Player Outlook
There were times in 2022 when Tagovailoa looked like the best quarterback in Fantasy, and other times when it looked like he should never play football again. Tagovailoa had some impressive performances last season when healthy, scoring at least 29 Fantasy points in four games, including a 50-point outing in Week 2 at Baltimore. But multiple concussions limited Tagovailoa to 13 games, and there are many Fantasy managers who consider him an injury risk this season. The Dolphins are confident in Tagovailoa, who has been cleared to play, and he's worth drafting as a low-end starter in all leagues. He has an amazing receiving corps with Tyreek Hill and Jaylen Waddle, and Mike McDaniel allowed Tagovailoa to thrive in their first year together. You'll need to draft a second quarterback with Tagovailoa in one-quarterback leagues to cover yourself in case he gets hurt, but he has top-10 upside at his position. In one-quarterback leagues, Tagovailoa is worth drafting with a mid-round pick. In Superflex and two-quarterback leagues, expect Tagovailoa to be drafted no later than Round 4.

  • Dolphins' Tua Tagovailoa: Underwhelms in season-ending loss

    Tagovailoa completed 20 of 39 passes for 199 yards with one touchdown and one interception in the Dolphins' 26-7 wild-card loss to the Chiefs on Saturday night. He also rushed three times for 25 yards. Tagovailoa came into the game with plenty of questions hanging over him in terms of his ability to thrive in cold weather, and he unfortunately did little to dispel the narrative. The 2020 first-round pick bore little resemblance to the prolific passer he was most of his career-best season, one in which he set new personal bests with 4,624 passing yards, a 69.3 percent completion rate and 29 touchdowns across 17 regular-season games. Tagovailoa also put together five 300-yard efforts, including a 466-yard tally versus the Chargers in Week 1, and he'll now head into a pivotal offseason where a contract extension figures to be of utmost priority, with the final year of his current deal looming in 2024.

  • Dolphins' Tua Tagovailoa: Offense sputters for three quarters

    Tagovailoa (quadriceps/shoulder) completed 17 of 27 pass attempts for 173 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions in Sunday's 21-14 loss to the Bills. Tagovailoa started and ended Miami's nine offensive possessions with drive-killing interceptions as the Dolphins slid back into the final wild-card spot while the Bills crowned themselves as AFC East champs. The bulk of Tagovailoa's meager fantasy production came over the course of two methodical touchdown drives in the second quarter. Outside of that, every other offensive drive for the Dolphins ended in either a punt or an interception. Tagovailoa has now thrown four picks over his last two games, matching his total thrown over his previous eight contests combined. The Alabama product finishes the 2023 regular season completing 69 percent of his passes for a league-leading 4,624 passing yards to go along with 29 touchdowns and 14 interceptions. Tagovailoa will attempt to end his recent slump when the Dolphins visit the Chiefs on Saturday for the start of the playoffs.

  • Dolphins' Tua Tagovailoa: QBs to Sit

    Tagovailoa has scored 18.9 Fantasy points or less in four games in a row, and now he's dealing with a shoulder injury coming into Week 18. His offensive line is a mess, Jaylen Waddle (ankle) is banged up and Tagovailoa only scored 15.9 Fantasy points at Buffalo in Week 4. He only has one game with at least 20 Fantasy points against the Bills in six career meetings, and Buffalo has held four quarterbacks in a row to 17.1 Fantasy points or less, including Patrick Mahomes and Dak Prescott over that span. I don't have high expectations for Tagovailoa in Week 18.

  • Dolphins' Tua Tagovailoa: Good to go for Week 18

    Tagovailoa (quadriceps/left shoulder) was a full participant in practice Wednesday, Travis Wingfield of the Dolphins' official site reports. Tagovailoa experienced some shoulder soreness during this past Sunday's 56-19 loss to the Ravens in addition to a quad injury, but neither issue is significant enough to threaten his availability for Sunday's home game against the Bills. A win Sunday would clinch the AFC East crown and the No. 2 seed in the AFC for the Dolphins.

  • Dolphins' Tua Tagovailoa: In line to play Sunday

    Coach Mike McDaniel told reporters Monday that he's not worried about the availability of Tagovailoa (shoulder) for Sunday night's game against the Bills, David Furones of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports. Following the Dolphins' Week 17 loss to the Ravens, Tagovailoa noted that his shoulder was a little sore, but it appears as though the QB is in no danger of sitting out this Sunday's contest, which will decide which team claims the AFC East. That said, it wouldn't surprise us to see Tagovailoa's name on Miami's injury report this week.

  • Dolphins' Tua Tagovailoa: Downplays shoulder soreness

    Following Sunday's 56-19 loss to the Ravens, Tagovailoa downplayed the left shoulder issue he sustained during the contest, Marcel Louis-Jacques of ESPN reports. During his postgame news conference, Tagovailoa noted that his "shoulder's good. Just sore." Based on the signal-caller's comments Sunday, it appears as though his status for next weekend's game against the Bills isn't in danger. That said, there's a pretty good chance Tagovailoa ends up listed on Miami's Week 18 injury report.

  • Dolphins' Tua Tagovailoa: Hurts shoulder Sunday

    Tagovailoa was forced out of Sunday's game against the Ravens with a left shoulder injury. Prior to sustaining his shoulder injury, Tagovailoa had completed 22 of 38 passes for 237 yards with two TDs and two picks. In his absence, Mike White is next up for the Dolphins' QB reps Sunday.

  • Dolphins' Tua Tagovailoa: QBs to Sit

    Jaylen Waddle (ankle) is out in Week 17 at Baltimore, and that's just one of several flaws for Tagovailoa in this matchup. He comes into Week 17 with three games in a row scoring 17.5 Fantasy points or less, and the Ravens just had four interceptions against Brock Purdy in Week 16. For the season, Baltimore is No. 2 in fewest Fantasy points allowed to opposing quarterbacks, and Tagovailoa should only be started in Superflex and two-quarterback leagues.

  • Dolphins' Tua Tagovailoa: Will start Week 17

    Tagovailoa (thumb/quadriceps) will start Sunday's game against the Ravens, Grant Gordon of NFL.com reports. Tagovailoa's practice participation during the week was limited by the pair of injuries, but he'll be out there for Sunday's pivotal clash. With a win in Baltimore, the 11-4 Dolphins would take over as the top seed in the AFC, but a loss could open the door for the Bills to win the AFC East, as Miami hosts Buffalo in Week 18 and has already lost once to the Bills this season. Tagovailoa will be working without his second-favorite target Sunday, as Jaylen Waddle (ankle) has been ruled out.

  • Dolphins' Tua Tagovailoa: Limited again Thursday

    Tagovailoa (thumb/quadricep) was listed as a limited participant in practice Thursday, Daniel Oyefusi of the Miami Herald reports. Tagovailoa has had his reps capped in both of the Dolphins' first two Week 17 practices while he manages a pair of injuries, but the coaching staff hasn't indicated that either health concern is anything that will threaten his status for Sunday's game in Baltimore. The quarterback hasn't shown any sign of being affected by the injury to the thumb on his throwing hand either, as Cameron Wolfe of NFL Network notes that Tagovailoa looked good while tossing passes in the open portion of Thursday's session. If Tagovailoa is able to put in a full practice Friday, he'll likely avoid an injury designation heading into the weekend.

  • Dolphins' Tua Tagovailoa: Sit Him (Lineup Decisions)

    Tagovailoa will play behind a weakened offensive line and without Jaylen Waddle against a Ravens pass defense that is very good at harassing QBs and creating turnovers (just ask Brock Purdy). But just in case that's not enough for you, consider that Tagovailoa has been under 18 PPR pts in each of past three games and hasn't had a big Fantasy game since Week 8. And just how good is this Ravens defense against quarterbacks? Only two passers all season (Matthew Stafford and somehow Josh Dobbs) have had more than 18 Fantasy points against them. I'd rather start Jordan Love, Baker Mayfield, Derek Carr and Kyler Murray.

  • Dolphins' Tua Tagovailoa: Limited in practice

    Tagovailoa was a limited participant in practice Wednesday due to left thumb and quadricep injuries, David Furones of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports. His ability to practice in any capacity at the beginning of the week suggests neither injury represents a serious threat to Tagovailoa's availability for a home game against Baltimore on Sunday. Assuming Tagovailoa is good to go Sunday, he could be without one of his top weapons in Jaylen Waddle (ankle), who didn't practice Wednesday and may be in danger of sitting out this weekend.

  • Dolphins' Tua Tagovailoa: Nears 300 yards in win

    Tagovailoa completed 24 of 37 pass attempts for 293 yards and a touchdown with no turnovers in Sunday's 22-20 win over Dallas. Tagovailoa benefited from the return of star wideout Tyreek Hill (ankle) after the quarterback posted his highest yardage total since Week 11. That said, Miami may lose its other star receiver after Jaylen Waddle (eye/shin) left Sunday's contest twice with two different injuries. As for the game itself, Tagovailoa performed adequately and led his team to victory, but the offense was stagnant in the red zone with just one touchdown to five field goals. Tagovailoa would benefit from having his full slate of talented receivers to overcome a tough Ravens defense in a road matchup Dec. 31.

  • Dolphins' Tua Tagovailoa: QBs to Start

    I didn't like Tagovailoa in Week 15 with his matchup against the Jets, and he scored just 14.9 Fantasy points. He's now been under 15 Fantasy points in three of his past four games. Tyreek Hill (ankle) didn't play against the Jets, but he's expected to return in Week 16 against the Cowboys, which is fantastic in a potential shootout. This isn't an easy matchup since Dallas just held Jalen Hurts and Josh Allen to a combined 26.8 Fantasy points in the past two weeks. But I'll take my chances with Tagovailoa at home, where he's scored at least 20.9 Fantasy points in five of seven starts this season.

  • Dolphins' Tua Tagovailoa: Modest numbers without Hill in win

    Tagovailoa completed 21 of 24 passes for 224 yards and one touchdown in Sunday's 30-0 win over the Jets. After the Dolphins took advantage of a couple short fields to get a rushing touchdown and a field goal, Tagovailoa helped them extend the lead to 17-0 with a 60-yard touchdown pass to Jaylen Waddle, who accounted for 142 of Tagovailoa's 224 passing yards. While Tagovailoa didn't light up the box score in Tyreek Hill's (ankle) absence, he avoided major mistakes while letting Miami's defense and running game lead the way. The starting quarterback took most of the fourth quarter off after his team built a 30-0 lead. Tagovailoa has thrown only one touchdown over the last two games with Hill banged up, so he'll hope to get his top target back in Week 16 against the Cowboys.

  • Dolphins' Tua Tagovailoa: Sit Him (Lineup Decisions)

    His best receiver seems to be operating at less than 100 percent, his offensive line is a calamity, and he's facing a Jets defense that held him to 9.8 Fantasy points three weeks ago when both of those first two issues weren't really issues. If that's not enough, the Jets have let up 20-plus Fantasy points to just four QBs all year, and just one (Josh Allen) had more than 23. It figures to be another low-upside matchup for Tagovailoa, who will continue to throw short passes but might be better off handing the ball to his running backs, which he did plenty of times back on Black Friday. I'd rather start quarterbacks in better matchups like Matthew Stafford, Trevor Lawrence, Russell Wilson and Sam Howell.

  • Dolphins' Tua Tagovailoa: Bust Alert (Start/Sit)

    Tagovailoa scored 9.8 Fantasy points at the Jets in Week 12, and he's now averaging just 16.3 Fantasy points per game in three career meetings with the Jets. We hope Tyreek Hill (ankle) is OK for Week 15, but if he's out then you can't start Tagovailoa at all. With Hill limited in Week 14 against Tennessee, Tagovailoa scored 9.1 Fantasy points in the lone game this season he failed to score a touchdown. The Dolphins offensive line is a mess and just lost center Connor Williams (ACL) for the season in the loss to the Titans. And the Jets are No. 1 in fewest Fantasy points allowed to opposing quarterbacks at 14.7 Fantasy points per game.

  • Dolphins' Tua Tagovailoa: Exposed after Hill injury

    Tagovailoa completed 23 of 33 passes for 240 yards without a touchdown or interception in Monday's 28-27 loss to the Titans. He added three rushing attempts for 15 yards and fumbled twice, losing one. Tagovailoa fumbled a snap on second-and-goal from the 2-yard line to end Miami's opening drive, and the offense bogged down after Tyreek Hill left with an ankle injury on the following possession. Tagovailoa finished the first half with just 84 passing yards, and while the Dolphins found more success after Hill returned in the third quarter, Miami's three touchdowns came on a pick-six and two Raheem Mostert touchdown runs set up by fumble recoveries deep in Tennessee territory. The Dolphins got the ball down by one with 1:49 remaining but turned it over on downs with Hill playing at less than 100 percent. Given how poorly Tagovailoa played while Hill wasn't in the game, he could struggle Week 15 against the stout Jets secondary if Hill isn't healthy.

  • Dolphins' Tua Tagovailoa: Elite efficiency in Week 13 win

    Tagovailoa completed 18 of 24 passes for 280 yards with two touchdowns and no interceptions in the Dolphins' 45-15 win over the Commanders on Sunday. Tagovailoa and the rest of Miami's front-line players got a chance to take an early seat in the fourth quarter thanks to the expansive lead the fourth-year signal-caller played an integral part in forging. Playing against a Commanders secondary that had been victimized regularly by opposing air attacks, Tagovailoa executed an early aggressive game plan from head coach Mike McDaniel to near perfection, averaging 11.7 yards per attempt while connecting with Tyreek Hill for touchdown passes of 78 and 60 yards in the first and second quarters, respectively. Tagovailoa finished with an elite QB rating of 141.0 for the day, and he's now completed at least 70.0 percent of his passes in three straight games. Tagovailoa and his aerial weapons could be set up for another productive contest in a Week 14 home matchup against the vulnerable Titans secondary on Monday night, Dec. 11.

  • Dolphins' Tua Tagovailoa: Three turnovers, just one TD in win

    Tagovailoa completed 21 of 30 passes for 243 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions in Friday's 34-13 win over the Jets. He added one rushing yard on two attempts and lost a fumble. Tagovailoa failed to connect with Tyreek Hill in the end zone on fourth down to end Miami's opening drive, but he found Hill for a seven-yard touchdown in the second quarter. That throw extended Tua's streak of games with a touchdown pass to 20 consecutive appearances, which gives him sole possession of second place in franchise history behind Dan Marino's 30-game streak in 1985-87. He let the Jets back into the game with a pick-six to cut Miami's lead to 10-6 in the final minute of the first half, only for Tim Boyle to return the favor on the final play before halftime, allowing the Dolphins to bleed clock with a run-heavy approach in the second half. Tagovailoa came up short of 250 passing yards for just the fourth time this season, but he'll have a nice opportunity to get back over that threshold in Week 13 against a Washington defense that just allowed 331 passing yards and four touchdowns to Dak Prescott on Thanksgiving.
