Tua Tagovailoa Will Be Available In Week 1

Miami Dolphins first-round quarterback Tua Tagovailoa (hip), who fractured and dislocated his hip in college last November, was a full practice participant this week and will be ready and available for the season opener on Sunday against the Patriots. The rookie from Alabama will open the season as veteran Ryan Fitzpatrick's primary backup, but Tagovailoa could eventually take over in 2020 if Fitzpatrick struggles at all. Miami is content to slow play it with the 22-year-old, though, which makes him a tough sell as a bench stash in season-long leagues this year, depending on your league size. But make no mistake, Tagovailoa is the team's QB of the future and is an excellent stash in all dynasty/keeper leagues.

Ryan Fitzpatrick Expected To Start Over Tua Tagovailoa

Miami Dolphins head coach Brian Flores isn't expected to name an official starting quarterback soon, but it likely won't be rookie quarterback Tua Tagovailoa, but instead 37-year-old veteran Ryan Fitzpatrick. Offensive coordinator Chan Gailey came out of retirement this year and has worked with Fitzpatrick with the Jets and Bills previously. The 22-year-old fifth overall pick not starting in Week 1 wouldn't be an indictment on his health. "It's less a health thing with Tua, it's more, he's going to have to beat out Ryan Fitzpatrick," NFL Network's Mike Garafolo said. Tua is the QB of the future in Miami, but the Dolphins are taking a patient approach and want to make sure he develops fully. Fitzpatrick surprised with his play in 2019, but he'll have to continue producing in order to hold off Tagovailoa in 2020. Fitzpatrick is really only worth drafting in superflex leagues that allow you to start two QBs.

Tua Tagovailoa's Rookie Projection Contains Lots Of Variance

The Miami Dolphins offense this year has many question marks, including rookie quarterback Tua Tagovailoa's role in it. The fifth overall pick has also dealt with an abbreviated offseason while he continues to rehab from hip surgery, and nobody knows how long Ryan Fitzpatrick will be the starter. Over the course of his college career, Tagovailoa threw an almost equal number of touchdowns to short (28 total), intermediate (29) and deep (30) targets, according to Pro Football Focus. He also threw 27 TD passes when facing the blitz since 2018 (fourth-most in college) and averaged 11.1 yards per attempt (third-highest figure) while facing pressure. Tua had 15 TDs and zero picks off play-action passes in 2019, the best TD-to-interception ratio in college. Because his health and role are unclear heading into training camp, Tagovailoa is one to avoid in redraft formats, but his quick release, excellent production and athleticism make him a popular dynasty/keeper target.
