Miami Dolphins quarterback Tua Tagovailoa (ribs) received negative X-ray results on the bruised ribs he suffered against the Buffalo Bills in Week 2. The sophomore exited the game early, and the Miami offense struggled in his absence. Luckily, it does not seem like something that will cause him to miss too much time, but it could be worth noting that he will have to deal with pain moving forward. When he returns to the lineup, he will remain a QB2 for fantasy managers until he can prove to be a consistent option. As of now, Tagovailoa should be left on the bench in conventional formats. Jacoby Brissett, who came on in relief of the injured Tagovailoa in Week 2, would likely start under center in Week 3 against the Las Vegas Raiders if Tagovailoa can't tolerate the pain.
Miami Dolphins tight end Mike Gesicki was held without a catch in the season opener. It was quite surprising given how frequently Gesicki was targeted in this offense last season. He got back on track during the Week 2 matchup with the Buffalo Bills. Gesicki hauled in three of his six targets for 41 yards in the blowout loss. The loss of Tua Tagovailoa (ribs) is going to be a significant hit to this offensive unit. Fantasy managers shouldn't trust any Dolphins' offensive players next week, assuming Jacoby Brissett is under center. Otherwise, Gesicki should be a fine TE2 versus the Las Vegas Raiders.
Miami Dolphins wide receiver DeVante Parker has surprisingly been heavily involved in the offensive gameplan to begin the season. Heading into the regular season, Parker's value was headed in the wrong direction with Jaylen Waddle and Will Fuller added to the roster. However, Parker has been able to produce through the first two games of the regular season. In Week 2, he hauled in five of his nine targets for 42 yards in the blowout loss to the Buffalo Bills. Parker was looking like a reliable flex option in PPR formats, but that might be gone now. Starting quarterback Tua Tagovailoa (ribs) was carted off during this game. His absence would make all the offensive players in Miami avoidable in Week 3.
Miami Dolphins wide receiver Jaylen Waddle made the most of his chances during the Week 2 blowout loss to the Buffalo Bills. Waddle was solid in the season opener and got more involved during his second career game. He hauled six of his eight targets for 48 yards in the loss. Fantasy managers in PPR formats cannot be upset with this performance, but sadly Waddle's value might not last. Quarterback Tua Tagovailoa (ribs) was carted off the field during this game. His absence would make Waddle a risky flex option heading into a matchup with the Las Vegas Raiders. Waddle is worth stashing in most fantasy formats, but managers might have to wait until Tagovailoa returns to get the most out of Waddle.
Miami Dolphins running back Salvon Ahmed was fairly quiet in the season opener, but was more involved in the Week 2 matchup with the Buffalo Bills. Ahmed rushed a team-high six times for 17 yards in the loss. It was a blowout loss and a game that was well over before halftime. The Dolphins were forced to abandon the running game, which obviously didn't help any of their backs. Despite getting six carries, Ahmed can be left on the waiver wire heading into their Week 3 matchup with the Las Vegas Raiders.
