Miami’s offense has a new look with the addition of WR Tyreek Hill and first-year head coach Mike McDaniel. Quarterback Tua Tagovailoa will be starting in his third NFL season, and we take a look at his fantasy viability for Week 1.
Fantasy Football analysis: Dolphins QB Tua Tagovailoa
Tagovailoa threw for 2,653 yards with a completion percentage of 67.8% in 2021. He has Hill downfield now and looked impressive in the preseason, but an opener against the Patriots is not going to be a walk in the park. The Pats allowed the second-fewest fantasy points to QBs in 2021.
Start or sit in Week 1?
This is going to be a tough start for the Dolphins offense, and while they might improve as the season goes, Tua should probably start on the bench for your fantasy league. Sit him.
