  • Tua Tagovailoa Unlikely To Play Saturday

    Miami Dolphins head coach Mike McDaniel said he's "encouraged" by the idea of quarterback Tua Tagovailoa not playing in the team's preseason opener on Saturday against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Although the Dolphins have a new coaching staff and new offense under McDaniel this year, it's still pretty typical for NFL teams to rest most of their starters early in the preseason. With a top-two duo of Tyreek Hill and Jaylen Waddle now at his disposal in the passing attack, Tagovailoa is expected to take a step forward in Year 3. There's certainly QB1 upside with a game-changing player like Hill now in the fold, but until he proves it, Tagovailoa will be drafted as a QB2 with upside in most fantasy football leagues.

  • Tua Tagovailoa Connecting On Deep Passes

    Miami Dolphins quarterback Tua Tagovailoa has put his arm on display at training camp. The former Alabama collegiate star has connected on several deep passes with his speedy wideout duo of Tyreek Hill and Jaylen Waddle. Tagovailoa's arm strength was a question heading into the season, but his performance so far at practice is alleviating any concerns of him getting the ball to Miami's two deep-threat receivers. With an upgraded coaching staff, offensive line, and supporting cast, the third-year quarterback has a much better fantasy outlook going into the 2022 season. He figures to be best-valued as a QB2 option to start out, but the 24-year-old can be considered a breakout candidate with a shot at putting up low-end QB1 numbers for fantasy managers.

  • Tyreek Hill Impressed With Tua Tagovailoa's Accuracy

    Miami Dolphins wide receiver Tyreek Hill said that quarterback Tua Tagovailoa is more accurate than his former QB Patrick Mahomes. "Obviously, like I'm gonna go with 15 (Mahomes) as the strongest arm, but as far as accuracy-wise, I'm going with Tua all day," Hill said. Per Pro Football Focus, Mahomes was actually slightly more accurate than Tagovailoa the last two seasons. "I've had a chance to see Tua throw the ball, to myself, but ... he's that dude, bro," Hill said. The knock on Tagovailoa in his first two seasons is that he doesn't have a strong arm, and he hasn't thrown deep often, with only 9% of his throws traveling at least 20 yards downfield. The 24-year-old might go deep more often with Hill now in the fold, and Tagovailoa has enough weapons to have a breakout in Year 3.

  • Tua Tagovailoa Receives Endorsement From New Teammate

    Miami Dolphins quarterback Tua Tagovailoa has plenty of pressure on him as he enters his third year at the professional level. However, after two subpar seasons, he'll have a good chance of turning things around, especially with Jaylen Waddle and former Chiefs receiverTyreek Hill on the roster. It appears Tagovailoa and Hill have already hit it off as well, with the wideout recently stating that the former Alabama signal-caller is more accurate than Patrick Mahomes. Nevertheless, whether the 24-year-old surpasses Mahomes' production in 2022-23 is yet to be seen. Still, with more than enough weapons, Tagovailoa has an excellent chance of having a breakout year, making him a perfect option for fantasy managers looking for a backup in redraft formats or a second quarterback in Superflex leagues.

  • Tua Tagovailoa Progressing As Downfield Passer?

    Miami Dolphins quarterback Tua Tagovailoa completed two deep passes to new wide receiver Tyreek Hill -- for 45 and 55 yards -- at Thursday's offseason practice. One of the main criticisms of Tagovailoa since he entered the league was his perceived inability to throw the ball deep. Since his rookie season, he ranks 30th among qualified passers in average air yards per attempt at 7.13 yards. However, Tagovailoa led the league last year in completion percentage on passes at least 25 yards downfield by completing 50% of them, although he attempted just 18 such passes, second-fewest in the league. The 24-year-old claims he didn't throw deep much in 2021 because of the team's play-calling. The former fifth overall pick feels more confident going deep now and worked for much of the offseason to improve his arm strength and mobility. Having Hill and Jaylen Waddle as his top two receivers will help tremendously as well, and Tagovailoa could make a huge third-year leap in 2022.
