According to every NFL head coach Mike Freeman has spoken to, it is a “foregone conclusion” that Dolphins QB Tua Tagovailoa will beat out veteran QB Ryan Fitzpatrick and start Week 1 against the New England Patriots. (Mike Freeman)
It was reported earlier that the Dolphins coaching staff “wasn’t opposed to” starting Tagovailoa at “some point” during the 2020 season should he earn the role. The narrative seems to be shifting a bit, and fantasy owners are sure to feel the excitement. If the fifth-overall pick out of Alabama gets the opportunity to start right away in Miami, consider him a solid QB2 with obvious QB1 upside due to his dynamic skillset. Fantasy owners will want to wait for more clarity on this situation, but Tagovailoa’s ADP will surely be on the rise if more and more reports speak to him beating out Fitzpatrick for the starting job in Miami.
