 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
Fitzmagic appears to be back in 2020! I fully expect Tua Tagovailoa to take over this QB job at some point this season, but Fitz is going to have some games where he has streaming appeal this year.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.
Dan Harris
FantasyPros
Fitzpatrick is going to start the season at quarterback for the Dolphins, but with Tua Tagovailoa waiting in the wings, it's unclear how long he'll last. Fitzpatrick closed 2019 strong with the Dolphins, and was a top-five fantasy quarterback over the final five weeks. But the Dolphins have perhaps the worst offensive line in football and are unlikely to compete for a playoff spot. He's only worth drafting as a backup in superflex or two-quarterback leagues and, even then, don't expect to be able to roster him past the midpoint of the season. 
Elliot Berkovits
Packer Report
If it wasn't for COVID, I'm not sure Ryan Fitzpatrick would even make the Dolphins roster but with preseason now canceled, it's hard to believe that Tua will be starting from day 1. That means we could see a few weeks of FitzMagic but don't expect it to last long, Tua will be starting sooner rather than later.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.
Ben Wasley
The Fantasy First Down
It's entirely possible Fitzmagic starts the season as the Miami QB. While I believe Tua will take over sooner rather than later, Fitz does make a nice early streamer if things fall that way.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

 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.

Roto Street Journal
Won't cost more than a last round pick, but has been a Top-10 QB within Chan Gailey's attack before, and finished as Fantasy's QB4 from Week 7 on last season.
