Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Fitzpatrick will be replaced as starter after the Week 7 bye by QB Tua Tagovailoa.
Huddle Up: It's a shame for Fitz, who is 10th in fantasy points at the position this season. He has thrown for 1,535 yards, 10 touchdowns to seven interceptions, and he scored twice on the ground. He can be dropped in all formats unless something happens to Tagovailoa, or he's traded.

Miami Dolphins QB Tua Tagovailoa was named starting quarterback in Week 8 after the team's bye this week.
Huddle Up: Tagovailoa will face the Los Angeles Rams in what could be a shootout. It could bode well for yardage, but the potential for turnovers looms large. He'll be a QB2 except in good matchups in the short term.

Miami Dolphins TE Mike Gesicki failed to record a catch on two targets in Week 6 versus the New York Jets.
Huddle Up: It has been an all-or-nothing campaign for Gesicki so far, posting 91 or more yards in two games and a total of 60 in his other four. The third-year tight end spends the bulk of his time in the slot and should have ample opportunity to take advantage of his 6-foot-6, 250-pound frame as a result, but that doesn't seem to happen as often as it should. He figures to remain a bit of a wild-card after Miami's bye next week when the Dolphins host the Los Angeles Rams in Week 8.

Miami Dolphins WR Preston Williams caught two of his three targets for 18 yards and a touchdown in Week 6 against the New York Jets.
Huddle Up: One week after erupting for 106 yards and a touchdown against the San Francisco 49ers, Williams slipped right back into the hole that forced many fantasy owners to part with him following Week 4. Williams has scored three times this season, but he has failed to top 41 yards in five of six games. The second-year wideout will be hard to trust as anything more than a low-floor WR4 in Week 8 when the Dolphins return from their bye and host the Los Angeles Rams.

Miami Dolphins WR DeVante Parker pulled in three of his eight targets for 35 yards in Week 6 versus the New York Jets.
Huddle Up: Parker and Ryan Fitzpatrick just didn't seem to be on the same page in this one, although there also wasn't a ton of urgency in a 24-0 win for the Dolphins. Parker appears to be a step slower this season too, although he could still be dealing with the ankle injury that dogged him throughout September. Parker will have his work cut out for him and should probably be considered more of a WR3 after a bye week when he figures to see a lot of the Los Angeles Rams' Jalen Ramsey in coverage in Week 8.

Miami Dolphins RB Myles Gaskin ran for 91 yards on 18 carries and caught all four of his targets for 35 more yards in Week 6 against the New York Jets.
Huddle Up: Gaskin has seemingly taken over the Dolphins' backfield, handling at least 20 touches in three of his last four games. While his upside is going to be limited running behind a below-average offensive line and in an offense that is unlikely to present him with a ton of goal line touches, volume is often king for running backs in fantasy and he has it for now. That volume should keep him squarely in the RB2 conversation in Week 8 versus the Los Angeles Rams.

Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Fitzpatrick finished 18-of-27 for 191 yards and three touchdowns with two interceptions in Week 6 against the New York Jets. He added four yards rushing on his only carry.
Huddle Up: Fitzpatrick threw for all three of his touchdowns in the first half, although fantasy owners probably weren't pleased that DeVante Parker and Mike Gesicki weren't on the receiving end of any of them. Since a disastrous Week 1 showing, the Harvard alum has thrown for multiple touchdowns in four of his last five games and accounted for at least three scores in three of the last four. Fitzpatrick should be considered more of a QB2 in Week 8 in a home game against the Los Angeles Rams, however.

Miami Dolphins WR DeVante Parker (ankle) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 16, and is not on the injury report for Week 6.
Huddle Up: Parker was limited to three targets in the last game but should be more involved against the New York Jets. He can be considered a No. 2 receiver in fantasy leagues because of his favorable matchup.

Miami Dolphins RB Myles Gaskin has 19 carries in the red zone and six goal-to-go carries in the last three games.
Huddle Up: Gaskin has emerged as an every-down back for Miami, and it appears he has also jumped ahead of Jordan Howard for carries near the goal line. Gaskin should be a strong flex play on a weekly basis, and he will have RB2 upside in Week 6 against a Jets' defense that has allowed nine rushing touchdowns.

Miami Dolphins WR DeVante Parker (ankle) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Oct. 14.
Huddle Up: Parker was only targeted three times last week but was still able to find the end zone for the second time this season. He will have a favorable matchup in Week 6 and can be at least a No. 2 receiver in fantasy leagues.

Miami Dolphins TE Mike Gesicki caught five of his six targets for 91 yards in a 43-17 win over the San Francisco 49ers in Week 5.
Huddle Up: Gesicki now has a pair of 90-plus-yard performances to go along with three duds this year. He clearly has TE1 upside, but his lack of consistency makes him a boom-or-best streaming option.

Miami Dolphins WR Preston Williams caught four of his five targets for a career-high 106 yards and a touchdown in a 43-17 win over the San Francisco 49ers in Week 5.
Huddle Up: After Williams managed a combined six catches for 89 yards in the first four games, he exploded for a career day. He showed some intriguing potential last year before suffering a knee injury, and this could be a sign that he has returned to form. If he is available in your league, he is worth grabbing if you need some receiver depth.

Miami Dolphins RB Myles Gaskin rushed 16 times for 57 yards and a touchdown and caught all five of his targets for 34 yards in a 43-17 win over the San Francisco 49ers in Week 5.
Huddle Up: Gaskin hasn't shown a lot of explosiveness, but he has been receiving double-digit carries and has a steady role in the passing attack. He's a quality flex option, especially in PPR formats.

Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Fitzpatrick completed 22 of his 28 pass attempts for 350 yards and three touchdowns in a 43-17 win over the San Francisco 49ers in Week 5.
Huddle Up: It was the third time in five games Fitzpatrick has topped 300 passing yards, and it was also his third game with multiple touchdowns. Of course, he also has two games with less than 200 passing yards and two games with no touchdown passes and multiple turnovers. Fitzpatrick is a boom-or-bust streaming candidate.

Miami Dolphins RB Jordan Howard has been declared inactive for the Week 5 game.
Huddle Up: Myles Gaskin has taken over the starting job and will receive most of the work at running back. He can be considered a flex option in fantasy leagues.

Miami Dolphins WR DeVante Parker (ankle) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 9, and is not on the injury report for Week 5.
Huddle Up: Parker has posted 179 yards over the last two games and will continue to be the main option in the passing game for the Dolphins. He can be considered a No. 2 receiver in fantasy leagues despite the tough matchup.

Miami Dolphins WR DeVante Parker (ankle) fully participated in practice Thursday, Oct. 8.
Huddle Up: Parker posted his first 100-yard game of the season last week and has been targeted 25 times over the last three games. He is a popular target for Ryan Fitzpatrick and can be a No. 2 receiver in fantasy leagues this week.

Miami Dolphins WR DeVante Parker (ankle) was full participant in practice Thursday, Oct. 8.
Huddle Up: Good news for the Dolphins' leading pass-catcher (24-279-1) who should be good to go as a WR2 start this week against the 49ers.

Miami Dolphins OT Austin Jackson (foot), DE Shaq Lawson (shoulder, illness) and TE Durham Smythe (knee) didn't practice Wednesday, Oct. 7.

Miami Dolphins TE Mike Gesicki has been limited to one catch on three targets for 15 yards in each of his last two games following a Week 2 outburst in which he amassed eight catches for 130 yards and a touchdown. Offensive coordinator Chan Gailey attributed the recent downturn to tighter coverage from opponents and not wanting to force the ball to him when it looks like he is double-covered. 'A few times it's looked like they were double-covering him and they ended up single-covering him; but to the quarterback on his first look, it looked double covered, so (Ryan Fitzpatrick) got off of him. We just have to pay closer attention to how they are actually playing him during the course of the game. I think hopefully now that we've put the ball in other places, things will start to come back his way,' Gailey said.
Huddle Up: To be fair, Gesicki is probably the healthiest of the team's three primary options (DeVante Parker and Preston Williams being the other two) in the passing game, so defenses likely consider him the biggest threat. On the plus side, he is still getting a heavy dose of snaps out of the slot, so he's being used in the same kind of way that allowed him to bust out late last season. The odds he'll bounce back in Week 5 are not good, however, as the Dolphins will visit the San Francisco 49ers.

Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Fitzpatrick was confirmed the starter for Week 5 by head coach Brian Flores.
Huddle Up: Fitz will not be a good starting option against the San Francisco 49ers. Tua Tagovailoa's time is coming soon.

Miami Dolphins QB Tua Tagovailoa (hip) has 'checked all the medical boxes,' but head coach Brian Flores told reporters Monday, Oct. 5, that he's not in a hurry to name him the starter. 'If it was my kid and he had a serious injury like that, I wouldn't want his coach to be in a rush to put him in there because of media pressure. ... No one is going to pressure me into doing anything,' Flores said.
Huddle Up: It's a nice sentiment in what is usually a cutthroat business, but Flores hasn't necessarily been forced into a decision before now because Ryan Fitzpatrick played well in Week 2 and Week 3. Such wasn't the case in Week 4. For what it's worth, Flores said he and his coaching staff are in the middle of reviewing the film, although he seemed to indicate Fitzpatrick will remain the starter for now. Tagovailoa remains a strong dynasty asset, but he'll likely be little more than a low-end QB2 in redraft leagues this year.

Miami Dolphins TE Mike Gesicki registered just one catch for 15 yards on three targets in Week 4 against the Seattle Seahawks.
Huddle Up: Gesicki had his two-game scoring streak come to a close, and he now has just two catches over the past two games. He has TE1 potential, but right now he should be treated as a TE2 in leagues of 12 or more teams heading into Week 5 at San Francisco.

Miami Dolphins WR DeVante Parker ended up with game highs of 10 receptions, 110 yards and 12 targets in Week 4 against the Seattle Seahawks.
Huddle Up: Parker's career started off a bit slow due to a bevy of injuries, but he has the potential to be a fantasy stud when he is healthy. Despite this big game, he is still more of a WR4 or flex fantasy option in leagues of 12 or more teams heading into Week 5 at San Francisco.

Miami Dolphins RB Jordan Howard ran twice for just two yards and he had a catch for minus-3 yards on his only target in Week 4 against the Seattle Seahawks.
Huddle Up: Howard was once a shifty, fast back who could be counted upon for fantasy purposes. He is behind Myles Gaskin and Matt Breida at the moment, and doing nothing to change that when he gets an opportunity. He can be left to the waiver wire in all fantasy leagues at this point.

Miami Dolphins RB Matt Breida ran three times for nine yards in Week 4 against the Seattle Seahawks and he added three receptions for 39 yards on three targets.
Huddle Up: Breida will get a crack at his former team in Week 5 when the Fins travel to San Francisco. However, he is only worth a look in the deepest of fantasy leagues for that matchup, as Myles Gaskin is getting a bulk of the backfield touches right now.
