Tua Tagovailoa to remain Dolphins' starter according to GM

Dolphins GM Chris Grier said Tuesday that QB Tua Tagovailoa will remain the team's starter moving forward.

Fantasy Impact

Tagovailoa finished the season on a down note by tossing three interceptions against the Bills in Week 17. Still, he showed some flashes upside and might've been held back a bit by his supporting cast. It sounds as if Miami plans to build around Tua, rather than instantly look to replace him. The franchise holds the No. 3 overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft thanks to a trade with the Houston Texans.

Tua Tagovailoa struggles with three interceptions against Bills in Week 17

Tua Tagovailoa completed 35 of 58 pass attempts for 361 yards, one touchdown and three interceptions while adding 28 rushing yards in the Dolphins' 56-26 blowout loss to the Buffalo Bills on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

Tagovailoa was under pressure throughout much of the game and never looked comfortable despite throwing for over 350 yards and a touchdown. The rookie threw three costly interceptions that put the game out of reach early and ultimately knocked the Dolphins out of contention for the 2020 postseason. Tua finishes with 14 total touchdowns and five interceptions across ten games in his rookie campaign.

Tua Tagovailoa to remain Dolphins' starter in Week 17

ESPN's Adam Schefter is reporting Dolphins HC Brian Flores told the press that QB Tua Tagovailoa will remain the team's starting quarterback for Week 17.

Fantasy Impact

Surprise. Just because Flores is sticking with Tagovailoa doesn't mean that Ryan Fitzpatrick's run is over. “If we’ve got to go to our relief pitcher in the ninth, that’s what we’ll do,” Flores said to reporters. “Fitz (Ryan Fitzpatrick), he’s always ready to go. “ Flores' remarks are suggesting that we could see quarterback pivots until the Dolphins are out of it, which could mean this could happen in postseason play. It is working now, but completely contradicts the old football adage "if you have two quarterbacks, you have none." With the game, and really, their season on the line, Flores turned to Fitzpatrick minutes into the fourth period of play. The journeyman signal-caller completed 9-of-13 passes for 182 yards and a touchdown, including a throw to Mack Hollins to set up the game-clinching field goal following a face-mask penalty. The Dolphins get the Bills in the 2020 season finale next week.

Tua Tagovailoa rushes for two TDs in Week 15

Tua Tagovailoa completed 20-of-26 passes for 145 yards and an interception in the Dolphins' 22-12 Week 15 win over the Patriots.

Fantasy Impact

The rookie QB also scored two goal-line rushing touchdowns as the Dolphins eliminated the Patriots from playoff contention. Tagovailoa was missing both Mike Gesicki and DeVante Parker in this one, so the offense understandably relied on the ground game for most of the afternoon. Tagovailoa isn't really a high upside fantasy option in Week 16 against the Raiders, but his potential for rushing scores renders him a serviceable QB2.

Tua Tagovailoa attempts 48 passes in Week 14 loss

Tua Tagovailoa completed 28-of-48 passes for 316 yards, two TDs, and an interception in the Dolphins' 33-27 Week 14 loss to the Chiefs.

Fantasy Impact

This was the first 300-yard passing day of Tua's career. The rookie was able to take advantage of a lot of underneath routes as Miami was in comeback mode during the second half. Tagovailoa also registered 24 rushing yards and another score on the ground to complete a solid fantasy performance. It was a ceiling game for him, but things will likely get much tougher in Week 15 against the Patriots.
