Miami Dolphins

AFC East

Fantasy Impact: With Jaylen Waddle (concussion) sidelined in Week 3, Cracraft filled a more prominent role but only managed to parlay the opportunity into a single reception. Cracraft is in jeopardy of missing time due to a shoulder injury. With Waddle expected to return in Week 4, perhaps Braxton Berrios will see a slight usage increase in Cracraft's absence.

Fantasy Impact: The Dolphins offense looked more than fine without Waddle on Sunday, dropping a team-record 70 points, but that does not mean Waddle is not an essential piece to the offensive puzzle in Miami. Waddle is the deep threat, averaging a ridiculous 20.5 yards per reception, improving upon his league-leading 18.1 YPR from 2022. Waddle seems to be trending towards returning to the Dolphins lineup in Week 4 when the team faces their toughest test thus far, Buffalo. The week's practice reports should give a clearer indication as to Waddle's status.

Tua Tagovailoa completed 23 of 26 passes for 309 yards, four touchdowns, and zero interceptions in the Dolphins' 70-20 win over the Broncos.

Fantasy Impact: Tagovailoa was incredibly productive and efficient, tossing just three incompletions and allowing zero turnovers. He helped to lead 10 scoring drives in Miami's historic 50-point victory, though a lot of credit can also be given to the rushing game (350 rushing yards and five rushing touchdowns). Tagovailoa is a strong QB1 option in fantasy football ahead of Week 4 versus Buffalo.

The Miami Dolphins' defense held the Denver Broncos to just 20 points in Week 3. The unit also tallied one sack and one interception. Miami defeated Denver, 70-20.

Fantasy Impact: Emmanuel Ogbah was clearly the Dolphins' top defensive player on Sunday as he was responsible for the game's only sack and the only interception. Despite the solid outing, the Miami D/ST can be avoided heading into a Week 4 clash with the Bills.

Jason Sanders went 10-for-10 on extra points in the Dolphins' 70-20 win over the Broncos.

Fantasy Impact: The Dolphins had absolutely no trouble handling the Broncos, which led to a lot of extra points and no field goals for Sanders. This type of game likely won't be replicated for a long time, but it adds further proof that Sanders is worth rostering thanks to his role on an incredibly dominant team.

Durham Smythe caught his lone target for a 15-yard reception in the Dolphins' 70-20 win over the Broncos on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: Smythe caught six passes through Miami's first two games but took a step back as the Dolphins leaned on the running game this Sunday. He'll return to being ranked as a low-end TE2 in Week 4.

Robbie Chosen caught his lone target for a 68-yard touchdown in the Dolphins' 70-20 win over the Broncos.

Fantasy Impact: Chosen earned snaps late in the game when Miami benched most of its starters. Despite his flashy catch Sunday, he's not on the fantasy radar going forward.

Braxton Berrios caught both of his targets for 33 yards in the Dolphins' 70-20 win over the Broncos.

Fantasy Impact: Berrios had a chance to earn more volume with Jaylen Waddle (concussion) out, but Miami instead leaned very heavily on its rushing attack in an epic 50-point win. The versatile receiver can be left on waivers in most fantasy leagues, especially if Waddle returns in Week 4.

Tyreek Hill caught nine of 11 targets for 157 yards and one touchdown in the Dolphins' 70-20 win over the Broncos.

Fantasy Impact: Tua Tagovailoa connected with Hill for a 54-yard touchdown early in the first quarter and the Dolphins did not look back. In total, Miami scored 10 touchdowns and relied heavily on its running game. Nevertheless, Hill was able to reward his fantasy managers with an impressive performance once again. He'll look to do significant damage against the Bills in Week 4.

Chris Brooks rushed for 66 yards on nine carries in the Dolphins' 70-20 win over the Broncos.

Fantasy Impact: Brooks, the Dolphins' No. 3 running back, earned snaps once the score became out of hand in the fourth quarter. The rookie's performance didn't compare to Raheem Mostert and De'Von Achane, who combined for 375 scrimmage yards and eight touchdowns, but he still showed that can be efficient when called upon. With that said, Brooks could be a healthy scratch in Week 4 if Salvon Ahmed (groin) is healthy enough to suit up.

Raheem Mostert rushed for 82 yards on 13 carries in the Dolphins' 70-20 win over the Broncos. He also hauled in seven of seven targets for an additional 60 receiving yards. Furthermore, the veteran scored four total touchdowns.

Fantasy Impact: Mostert's 142 scrimmage yards and four touchdowns provided fantasy managers with a huge boost in Week 3, though it's worth mentioning that teammate De'Von Achane also had a historic performance (233 scrimmage yards, four touchdowns). Mostert remains a fringe top-12 running back, though it's fair to assume that Achane could eat into his workload going forward.

De'Von Achane rushed for 203 yards on 18 carries in the Dolphins' 70-20 win over the Broncos on Sunday. He also caught four of four targets for an additional 30 receiving yards. Furthermore, the rookie scored four total touchdowns.

Fantasy Impact: In just his second career game, Achane had one of the most impressive performances in recent memory. While his insane Week 3 will be nearly impossible to replicate, especially as he remains behind Raheem Mostert on the depth chart, the rookie is a must-add in all fantasy leagues and could be a solid RB3/FLEX play in Week 4. The Dolphins face the Bills next Sunday.

Dolphins WR Cedrick Wilson Jr. is officially active for a Week 3 matchup with Denver.

Fantasy Impact: Wilson Jr. is set to see his first action of the season after being a healthy inactive for the first two weeks. Fantasy managers can expect the 28-year-old to be worked into a rotation in the offense as the team prepares to play without standout wide receiver Jaylen Waddle.

Dolphins OL Terron Armstead is officially active for a Week 3 matchup with Denver.

Fantasy Impact: Armstead is set to make his season debut after missing the first two weeks with multiple injuries. Armstead’s return to the lineup is a boost for QB Tua Tagovailoa and the Dolphins’ running game.

Dolphins WR Erik Ezukanma is officially inactive for a Week 3 matchup with Denver.

Fantasy Impact: Ezukanma is a healthy scratch, which is a bit of a surprise considering the team is without WR Jaylen Waddle. Fantasy managers should expect Braxton Berrios and River Cracraft to see the majority of the snaps behind Tyreek Hill.

Dolphins RB Salvon Ahmed is officially inactive for a Week 3 matchup with Denver.

Fantasy Impact: Ahmed was listed as doubtful with a groin injury, so the move to inactive for the game is not a surprise. Fantasy managers should expect De’Von Achane to see additional playing time behind starter Raheem Mostert.

Skylar Thompson will be Miami's QB3 to start the season. (Source: Ari Meirov on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: 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.

Mike White has won the QB2 job in Miami and will back up Tua Tagovailoa to start the season. (Source: Ari Meirov on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Miami signed White in free agency to compete for the backup job, and the team has now announced that he won it. He will be the backup for Tagovailoa to start the year, and he could get real playing time if Tua continues to struggle with injuries again this year.

According to Tom Pelissero of NFL Network, FB Alec Ingold is signing a three-year extension worth up to $17.2 million with the Miami Dolphins, making him the AFC's highest-paid FB. (Source: Tom Pelissero on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Ingold, who is 27, saw a career-high usage in 2022, playing on 40% of the team's offensive snaps. The former Wisconsin Badger spent the first three years of his career with the Oakland/Las Vegas Raiders before signing with Miami in 2022. Joining a system that branches from the Kyle Shanahan tree in San Francisco, Ingold was a crucial part of Miami's offense under first-year head coach Mike McDaniel, despite only getting 21 touches last season. He is more valuable as a football player than a fantasy asset and will be a bonus to Miami's success offensively.
