Tua Tagovailoa Week 1 Outlook - Dolphins at Chargers

By Derek Brown (FantasyPros), Sun, Sep 10th 2023, 12:05pm EDT

I haven't been the biggest Tua Tagovailoa-stan throughout the draft process, citing his lack of mobility as a major red flag for his fantasy football ceiling/floor projection. However, I can acknowledge that the Dolphins southpaw can deliver spike weeks with two of the fastest WRs in the league vacuuming up nearly half of his pass attempts. But I am not so sure that this is one of those smash spots for Miami's QB1. Last year when facing Brandon Staley's defense, Tagovailoa posted his worst completion percentage (36%) of the 2022 season. Considering this uber-talented defensive roster is healthy entering the start of the season - usually not the case if you have followed the Chargers' injury-plagued luck throughout the years - Miami's offense might be more underwhelming than most are anticipatinh given the game's high projected total for Vegas. If you drafted Tua Tagovailoa, you are probably starting him. But I wouldn't anticipate one of his monster performances that will be fantasy QB1-worthy. Tagovailoa only scored 20-plus fantasy points in four of his 15 games played last season.
