QUARTERBACKS

PlayerAtt.Comp.YardsTDINTRushYardsTDPoints
Tua Tagovailoa535357.43771.822.7410.1754.51693.95262.09
Teddy Bridgewater46.531.6339.51.770.846.121.40.3122.98

Tua Tagovailoa: This is shaping up to be a make-or-break season for Tua. With the team trading for Tyreek Hill and signing Terron Armstead, a lack of significant improvement could put the team in the market for a first-round quarterback in 2023. Even if the Dolphins employ a more run-focused offense under Mike McDaniel, Tagovailoa, at a minimum, should post better stats in 2022 than 2021 given the much improved supporting cast.

RUNNING BACKS

Salvon Ahmed281120.774.930.80.121.95
Alec Ingold1.22.60.013.928.80.15.75

Chase Edmonds: While the Dolphins signed both Edmonds and Raheem Mostert in free agency, they gave Edmonds the larger contract and he has the edge to be Miami's most productive fantasy running back in 2022. The former Cardinal has averaged more than 4.5 yards per carry in each of the past three seasons and has a total of 96 catches for 713 yards over the past two seasons.

Raheem Mostert: Mostert follows McDaniel from San Francisco and has made the most of his opportunities, when healthy. Mostert missed almost all of 2021 with a knee injury and played just eight games in 2020. If he's able to stay healthy for (close to) a full season, he should vastly outperform his preseason ADP.

WIDE RECEIVERS

Tyreek Hill91.41130.67.49.369.80.47212.96
Jaylen Waddle86.6943.55.43.515.80.18172.71

Erik Ezukanma7.892.50.600016.75
Preston Williams2.934.90.20006.14

Tyreek Hill: Tua Tagovailoa is a winner following Hill's trade to Miami, but that's not the case for Hill given the quarterback downgrade from Patrick Mahomes. Hill set a career high in receptions (111) last year and a non-rookie low in Y/R (11.2). Even if he's no longer considered in the mix to be drafted as fantasy's WR1 overall in 2022, he's still worthy of being selected as a high-end WR1 (top six) wide receiver.

Jaylen Waddle: Waddle (somewhat quietly) had a very impressive rookie campaign with a rookie-record 104 receptions, as he went over the 1,000-yard mark and scored a total of seven touchdowns. It's unlikely that his numbers in 2022 are much better than they were in his rookie season with Hill in town, but he'll be a solid WR2 in both fantasy and real life.

TIGHT ENDS

PlayerRec.YardsTDRushYardsTDPoints
Mike Gesicki46.7524.22.900093.17
Durham Smythe15.6133.60.700025.36
Adam Shaheen4.941.10.30008.36
Hunter Long1.920.60.10003.61

Mike Gesicki: Gesicki was one of my favorite fantasy tight ends going into 2021, but the outlook for 2022 is not as good with the team trading for Tyreek Hill and a shift to a more run-centric focus. The athletic tight end will be third in line for targets behind Hill and second-year receiver Jaylen Waddle. Even if Gesicki's yearly numbers are fairly close to last year's production, fantasy managers should expect more week-to-week volatility in 2022.
