Notes for Player Combination
 
Expert 
Draft Engine
Draft Engine
Stafford made 136 consecutive starts dating back to the 2011 season before missing the second half of 2019 after fracturing bones in his back in a Nov. 3 game against the Raiders. The expectation is that he'll be ready for the start of the 2020 season.Durability is an issue for Tagovailoa after last November's hip surgery and an ankle injury in 2018. Less-than-ideal size could also be a problem, and Miami has the option to turn to a capable backup in Ryan Fitzpatrick if Tagovailoa isn't ready for Week 1.
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Stafford was on fire before his injury last season and was a solid fantasy option. He's currently being drafted as the QB13 and should easily return that value in 2020.Tua isn't going to start the season, but that doesn't mean we should completely write him off for fantasy purposes in 2020. I fully expect the rookie QB to step in at some point this season later on and he could have some streaming appeal in plus matchups. With all that being said, he can remain on your league's waiver wire until that point.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
There have been a lot of people talking about Stafford's 2019 season before injury, highlighting that it could be a sign of things to come. He was the No. 6 quarterback in fantasy through nine weeks, yes. But do you know who No. 5 was? Aaron Rodgers. That didn't end well. Stafford's 8.2 yards per attempt was easily a career high and just the second time in his career over 7.6 yards per attempt. He's going to be a fine low-end QB1/high-end QB2, but he's not likely to be a league winner at this stage of his career.

Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Stafford was on pace for almost 5,000 yards passing and 38 passing touchdowns before he missed 8 games due to a back injury. The big worry at this point for the 32-year old quarterback is durability playing on a bad team, but he puts up big passing numbers when healthy. 
Elliot Berkovits
Packer Report
Before his Week 10 injury last season, Matthew Stafford was QB6 and in the talks for MVP. He returns this year with the same solid group of WR's as last year with the key addition of 2nd round rookie RB DeAndre Swift. Stafford has been known to stuff the stat sheets throughout his career and in an offense with this much firepower, we could see another top 10 finish in 2020.Due to the preseason being canceled, I do not expect Tua to start in Week 1 but he will get on the field sooner than later. When he does, he'll have Devante Parker, Preston Williams, and Mike Gesicki to rely on which is a pretty solid group when you compare it to what the Dolphins have had in the past. As soon as he becomes the starter he will be on everybody's radar.
Seth Miller
Crossroads Fantasy Football
If we can just re-run last year and his career year that he was having before injury, he'll be a steady play for your fantasy team. Don't have to expect a career year 2 years in a row, just need Hockenson to take another step forward, and a hopefully improved run game to keep the offense humming. 
Ben Wasley
The Fantasy First Down
After years of fantasy mediocrity and seemingly out of nowhere, Matthew Stafford exploded out of the blocks to start the 2019 season, averaging his most fantasy points per game since 2011. Heading into 2020, he provides a relatively safe option with sudden and surprising upside who you can grab later in drafts then many of the more established fantasy guns. He's a great option if he's still there in the double digit rounds of fantasy drafts.I'm a massive fan of Tua the man and Tua the QB. I'm not a fan of QB the 2020 fantasy player though. I'm not convinced he starts any time soon, though I hope he does, and I don't think he provides immediate value. This is a rebuild and he's probably a year or two away.
Tal Malachovsky
The Fantasy Scout
 I'm going to have to learn how to pronounce this dude's name correctly, but I think I'v got it - Too-uhh Tag-o-vah-lo-waah. Anyway, he can't take hits in the NFL like he did on a few occasions in college. That'll end his career quickly. Lucky for him, he has a lot of positive things that make him special, beside his legs. First, his running style is more like Barry Sanders in his maneuverability, and illusiveness, as opposed to a Cam Newton style of running QB that uses power over slickness, which puts players at higher risk of injury. The way Tua runs makes it seem like he thinks everyone has cooties, and there's NO WAY you're touching him. Not to say Tua isn't strong. He is. Very strong. In fact, I think he's going to frustrate defenses because they're going to struggle getting him down, even when they think they've got him. When he gets the nod for the start, he's going to be a force, but it benefits him to be sitting behind the extremely experienced veteran, Ryan Fitzpatrick, who's been on half the teams in the league. Tua has no pressure to start producing on day one because of his return from injury, and having a successful Ryan Fitzpatrick ahead of him. When that changes, and it's Tua's turn, I expect Lamar Jackson type numbers in rushing, and better than Lamar in passing, and throwing touchdown numbers. So, as a late round backup, stash or as an early waiver/free agency QB pickup in redraft leagues, I like it a lot. He is a league winner, and I'm calling it now. I thought it would be Kyler Murray this season, and it has a higher probability of happening, but Tua may be a QB on a lot of fantasy football team champions. If Tua gets to play, he's going to wow everyone. I love this guy. You should too. He should be flagged so you can keep an eye on him. He's one of my favorite sneaky beginning/mid season fantasy assets that has a high ceiling. I can see him starting the 3rd or 4th game, unless Ryan Fitzpatrick lights it up from game one, and keeps doing it consistently or Tua isn't ready for one reason or another. I wouldn't put my money on Pickspatrick accomplishing that, but Tua may need more time. Although, he states he feels 100% after his hip surgery. I lean on the side that they'll wait for Ryan Fitzpatrick to lose his first or second game, and then they'll unleash the beast.
