Fantasy Impact: Alonso is an expensive and often injured veteran on a rebuilding team. It would not be surprising if he ends up being cut.

The Miami Herald's Armando Salguero is reporting that coach Brian Flores has said that Ryan Fitzpatrick is not a lock to begin the regular season as the starter at QB for Miami. (Source: Armando Salguero on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Fitzpatrick is the favorite to begin the season as the QB1 in Miami, but it would hardly be surprising if Josh Rosen overtakes him at some point. Fitzpatrick has struggled to play consistently for long stretches throughout his career.

The Miami Dolphins surrendered 16 points and 309 total yards in their preseason loss to the Buccaneers. The recovered a fumble and forced four sacks.

Fantasy Impact: This was a strong showing for what figures to be a low-end defensive unit in 2019. Preseason DST outputs should be taken lightly, but perhaps the Dolphins will have a few usable weeks. Don't bank on it and feel the need to draft them, though.

Jason Sanders hit both field goal attempts, from 40+ each time, in the Dolphins' preseason loss to the Buccaneers.

Fantasy Impact: Sanders is a decent fantasy kicker option, but there are plenty of kickers on higher scoring offenses that fantasy owners can look to in their drafts this season.

Nick O'Leary caught one of his two targets for five yards in the Dolphins' preseason loss to the Buccaneers.

Fantasy Impact: O'Leary is scarcely used as a receiver, and when he is, barely clears the line of scrimmage. He's a security blanket as a last resort, which does not translate to fantasy points.

Chris Myarick caught his only target for 16 yards in the Dolphins' preseason loss to the Buccaneers.

Fantasy Impact: Myarick is a camp body and does not figure to make the final roster.

Clive Walford caught one of his three targets for 10 yards in the Dolphins' preseason loss to the Buccaneers.

Fantasy Impact: Walford does not figure to see much playing time, and even then, should not be too active in the passing game. Leave him off the draft board for 2019.

Mike Gesicki caught two of his three targets for 14 yards in the Dolphins' preseason loss to the Buccaneers.

Fantasy Impact: Gesicki has not shown any indications that he'll be heavily used in the passing game yet. He has tons of athletic upside and big-play ability, but without reliable targets, that doesn't help. He's nothing more than a late-round dart throw for now, and still worth a speculative hold in dynasty leagues.

Durham Smythe caught one of his two targets for 22 yards in the Dolphins' preseason loss to the Buccaneers.

Fantasy Impact: Smythe figured to be more of a blocking TE when he entered the league, and isn't likely to see reliable passing game usage. He's not worth a roster spot for fantasy purposes.

Preston Williams caught only one of his six targets for seven yards in the Dolphins' preseason loss to the Buccaneers.

Fantasy Impact: The Dolphins are really testing out Williams to see what they have. He should be snagged in dynasty leagues if he's still available, and might well work his way onto the 2019 scene for fantasy football if he keeps playing well. He's not worth drafting yet, but that could change before too long.

Reece Horn caught his only target for 12 yards in the Dolphins' preseason loss to the Buccaneers.

Fantasy Impact: Horn will not surface on the fantasy radar in 2019, and not likely any year after that either.

Kenny Stills caught two of his three targets for 16 yards in the Dolphins' preseason loss to the Buccaneers.

Fantasy Impact: Stills could once again be the de facto WR1 for the Dolphins. Stills would benefit from Ryan Fitzpatrick being under center, as Fitz is more likely to throw deep often than Rosen is. Stills is basically free in drafts right now, and could well see 100+ targets by necessity. He's a fine dart throw late in drafts.

Brice Butler caught two of his three targets for 18 yards in the Dolphins' preseason loss to the Buccaneers.

Fantasy Impact: Butler does not figure to be a part of the starting rotation this season, and even if he works his way into playing time, he'll be highly unpredictable. He's not worth drafting in fantasy leagues.

Isaiah Ford caught two of his four targets for 20 yards in the Dolphins' preseason loss to the Buccaneers.

Fantasy Impact: Ford does not figure to get meaningful time on the field in 2019. However, he could still be stashed on a taxi squad in dynasty formats, as he's been derailed by injuries thus far and could still turn into a viable player.

Saeed Blacknall caught one of his three targets for a team-high 25 yards in the Dolphins' preseason loss to the Buccaneers.

Fantasy Impact: Blacknall is not a name who will likely surface on the fantasy radar in 2019, even if he makes the roster.

Myles Gaskin rushed six times for 17 yards in the Dolphins' preseason loss to the Buccaneers.

Fantasy Impact: Gaskin has not impressed in the preseason or training camp so far. While he could make the roster, he's only a name to monitor in dynasty leagues at this point, and nothing more than a taxi squad stash there.

Mark Walton rushed five times for eight yards and caught his only target for 12 yards in the Dolphins' preseason loss to the Buccaneers.

Fantasy Impact: Walton was once on the dynasty league radar and is probably back on it. He was used in the running and passing game at the University of Miami, and could work himself into a complementary role with the Dolphins. That said, he's not worth rostering in anything but dynasty leagues at this point.

Kenneth Farrow rushed three times for 41 yards and caught his only target for one yard in the Dolphins' preseason loss to the Buccaneers.

Fantasy Impact: Farrow is unlikely to see meaningful playing time in the regular season and should not be drafted in fantasy football leagues for 2019.

Patrick Laird rushed seven times for 51 yards and caught both of his targets for 16 yards and a touchdown in the Dolphins' preseason loss to the Buccaneers.

Fantasy Impact: Laird has been making his presence felt this preseason, with a strong performance in Week 2. While Laird is unlikely to see meaningful playing time in 2019 even if he makes the roster, he could be added to a watchlist in a dynasty format, and might be a solid preseason DFS play for Week 4 when the starters likely sit.

Jake Rudock completed 6-of-11 pass attempts for 72 yards and a touchdown in the Dolphins' preseason loss to the Buccaneers. He also scored a two-point conversion and threw an interception.

Fantasy Impact: Rudock is a distant third in line for playing time and is unlikely to surface on the fantasy radar in 2019 or beyond.
