QUARTERBACKS

Tua Tagovailoa535357.43798.523.2710.4354.5158.13.27259.59
Teddy Bridgewater46.531.5337.11.810.866.121.40.3123

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 year-over-year stats given the much improved supporting cast.

Salvon Ahmed31.4128.70.632.518.60.120.36
Alec Ingold1.22.60.014.3310.26.77

Chase Edmonds: The Dolphins have a new-look backfield with the additions of Edmonds and Raheem Mostert atop the depth chart. The former Cardinal has averaged more than 4.5 yards per carry in each of the past three seasons with 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. The problem, of course, is that durability has eluded him. 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 outperform his ADP.

WIDE RECEIVERS

Erik Ezukanma8.299.30.700018.23
Tanner Conner110.30.10002.13

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 with a non-rookie low in Y/R (11.2). Instead of being in the mix to be the first receiver off the board in fantasy drafts, Hill becomes a solid mid-tier WR1 option for fantasy managers.

Jaylen Waddle: Waddle (somewhat quietly) had a very impressive 2021 season 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 2022 numbers will be much better than they were in his rookie season with Hill in town (and there's a decent chance his numbers decline a bit), but he'll be a solid WR2 in both fantasy and real life.

TIGHT ENDS

Mike Gesicki51.3566.63.3000102.11
Durham Smythe14.2132.30.700024.53
Hunter Long3.335.20.20006.37
Cethan Carter1.918.60.10003.41

Mike Gesicki: One of my favorite fantasy tight ends going into last season, Gesicki's 2022 outlook isn't as rosy with the team trading for Tyreek Hill and a new coaching staff that has a run-centric focus. (In fact, the team has reportedly brought up his name to other teams.) The athletic tight end projects to be third in line, at best, for targets behind Hill and second-year receiver Jaylen Waddle. Fantasy managers should expect plenty of week-to-week volatility from Gesicki, even if his final numbers are close to last year's production.
