  • Skylar Thompson Questionable To Return

    Miami Dolphins quarterback Skylar Thompson (right thumb) is questionable to return against the Minnesota Vikings in Week 6. Teddy Bridgewater has entered the game in his place. Although Tua Tagovailoa and Bridgewater both cleared concussion protocol, the Dolphins opted to start Thompson this week. He completed seven passes for 89 yards before exiting. It will be interesting to see whether Bridgewater remains in the game if Thompson is cleared to return.

  • Dolphins Have Confidence In Skylar Thompson

    Miami Dolphins rookie quarterback Skylar Thompson is making his first career start in Week 6 against the Minnesota Vikings, and the Dolphins have plenty of confidence in him. Head coach Mike McDaniel said the team would rather go with the QB that has practiced and prepared all week. Tua Tagovailoa (concussion) has already been ruled out, and Teddy Bridgewater (concussion) was in the concussion protocol during the practice week. Bridgewater has been cleared to be active on Sunday, but the Dolphins feel more comfortable using Thompson this week. The Kansas State product went 19-for-33 for 166 yards, no touchdowns and a pick in his NFL debut in last week's loss to the New York Jets in relief of Bridgewater. He'll make for a low-end QB2 flier in superflex leagues on Sunday against Minnesota.

  • Skylar Thompson Will Start In Week 6

    Miami Dolphins quarterback Skylar Thompson will make his first career start on Sunday versus the Minnesota Vikings, with Teddy Bridgewater (concussion) to serve as his backup. The 2022 seventh-round pick was thrust into action during the Week 5 meeting with the Jets after Bridgewater was ruled out. He had a rough showing in that one, finishing with 166 yards off 19-for-33 passing while adding an interception and a fumble. Fortunately, Tua Tagovailoa (concussion) is expected to return in Week 7 after clearing protocol. Nonetheless, Thompson has a shaky outlook for Week 6, so fantasy managers shouldn't look in his direction for relief.

  • Skylar Thompson Expected To Start Against Vikings

    Miami Dolphins head coach Mike McDaniel announced on Wednesday that rookie quarterback Skylar Thompson is expected to start in Week 6 against the Minnesota Vikings. Tua Tagovailoa (concussion) has already been ruled out, while Teddy Bridgewater (concussion) must pass through the league's concussion protocol this week and will do so with very limited practice time, if any. Thompson pretty much played all of last week's loss to the New York Jets after Bridgewater was injured on the first play of the game, and he went 19-for-33 for 166 yards, no touchdowns, a pick and a lost fumble in his NFL debut. The seventh-rounder should be avoided in his first career start, while fantasy managers need to downgrade all of the Dolphins offensive skill players. Oh, and the Vikings defensive unit will be a popular streamer in Week 6.

  • Skylar Thompson Tosses Pick In NFL Debut

    Miami Dolphins rookie quarterback Skylar Thompson made his NFL debut in Week 5, filling in for injured signal-callers Tua Tagovailoa (head) and Teddy Bridgewater (head). Thompson finished the day 19-for-33 with 166 yards, zero touchdowns, and one interception. His final stat line also included two sacks and one lost fumble. Overall, Thompson failed to live up to the hype that surrounded him during his impressive preseason run. However, he should continue to develop and improve with more experience and practice reps. If Thompson is forced to make his first career start in Week 6, he will fall into the mid-to-high QB3 range.

  • Terron Armstead Downgraded To Out

    Miami Dolphins left tackle Terron Armstead (toe) has been ruled out for the remainder of Week 5 against the New York Jets. The talented lineman initially exited the contest in the first quarter and won't return. Skylar Thompson, Miami's third-string quarterback, was thrust into action Sunday and will be without one of his top pass protectors for the remainder of this divisional clash.
