QB - MIA - OUT
Week 3 Outlook
Skylar Thompson will be Miami's QB3 to start the season.
Thompson played solid enough last year after being thrust into the starting lineup as a seventh-round rookie, but he didn't have a good enough preseason to win the backup job over Mike White. He will start the season as the third QB on the depth chart, and it seems unlikely that he'll get much work this year behind Tagovailoa and White on the depth chart.
Skylar Thompson completed 10 of his 16 pass attempts for 104 yards and two interceptions in a loss to Atlanta Friday.
Thompson also was sacked four times and lost a fumble. The Dolphins signed Mike White in free agency to serve as the backup this season, so Thompson will likely be the third quarterback on the depth chart in 2023.
Skylar Thompson is set to start in Sunday's Wild-Card matchup against the Buffalo Bills.
Thompson will get the start on Sunday with Tua Tagovailoa (concussion) being ruled out and Teddy Bridgewater (knee/finger) being limited to a backup role. He doesn't project to be a very productive DFS option against a tough Buffalo defense, and him starting is also less than ideal for Miami pass catchers on Sunday.
Skylar Thompson is set to start for the Dolphins in their Week 18 matchup with the Jets, per head coach Mike McDaniel.
Thompson will make the start in the regular season finale as Teddy Bridgewater tends to a finger injury. This will mark Thompson's second start of the season and fantasy managers should expect Mike Glennon to serve as the backup. The 25-year-old has 382 yards, one touchdown, and three interceptions in parts of six games this season.
Tua Tagovailoa is reportedly not part of the Dolphins quarterback plans for Week 18 against the Jets, leaving it to Skylar Thompson or Teddy Bridgewater.
Thompson replaced Bridgewater undercenter this past week after he suffered a finger injury. The Dolphins will likely take it day-by-day in practice this week between the two of them.
