Miami Dolphins QB Tua Tagovailoa could play if he wins the job at some point this season, according to sources. The team would prefer to start QB Ryan Fitzpatrick, but the coaches aren't opposed to starting Tagovailoa.
Huddle Up: Tagovailoa isn't worth drafting in single-year leagues for now, and he remains a dynasty piece to take early on. Fitz Magic has minimal fantasy luster as well.

Miami Dolphins WR Preston Williams (knee) is on schedule in his return and is jogging, according to a team source. The Dolphins are optimistic he'll be ready for the regular-season opener after tearing his ACL last November.
Huddle Up: Williams is expected to start on the outside opposite WR DeVante Parker in 2020, though it's unknown whether the Dolphins' receiving group will be working with returning veteran QB Ryan Fitzpatrick or rookie QB Tua Tagovailoa. Williams showed great promise while catching 32 passes for 428 yards and three touchdowns over just eight games as an undrafted rookie last year. He'll be an excellent late-round target in the hope he can regain his early-season rookie form.

Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Fitzpatrick recently said on the 'What's Next with Eric Wood' podcast he's looking forward to mentoring rookie QB Tua Tagovailoa in 2020. 'I'm really excited, I'm really excited that they drafted him,' Fitzpatrick said. 'I'm excited because I watched him play at Alabama and he seems like he's a pretty dynamic talent. For me, I'm his biggest cheerleader right now. ... Hopefully, some of the lessons I'm able to teach him are him watching me play, but if it's the other way around, I'm going to do my best to help him to succeed in the best way that he can,' Fitzpatrick said.
Huddle Up: Fitzpatrick, a 15-year NFL veteran, may have the inside track on the starting job over the No. 5 pick of the 2020 NFL Draft due to abbreviated offseason programs around the league. He threw for 3,529 yards and 20 touchdowns against 13 interceptions last season while adding 243 rushing yards and four touchdowns across 15 games (13 starts). Tagovailoa has immense value in dynasty and keeper leagues, but either QB would be only a mid-tier QB2 in redraft formats.

Miami Dolphins QB Tua Tagovailoa was discussed during a recent interview between ESPN analyst Mark Sanchez and Fox Sports' Colin Cowherd, and Sanchez did not hold back when asked about Tagovailoa's pro readiness. 'Sometimes you can't even articulate what he did on film and it leaves you scratching your head because it's so good, so fast and so instinctive. It's almost like he's processing what's happening physically in front of him. And in those nanoseconds his body is already reacting. He's already making decisions you didn't even know he could make that quickly. It's uncanny. He's physically and mentally twitchy,' Sanchez said.
Huddle Up: Tagovailoa is about as ready to be an NFL quarterback as any prospect can be; the main concern with him is staying healthy consistently enough to fulfill his promise. Each of his recent serious injuries - two to his ankle and one to his hip - were a product of trying to do too much instead of living to play another down. If Miami is successful in getting him to modify his behavior in that regard, Tagovailoa should have a long and prosperous career in the NFL.

Miami Dolphins WR DeVante Parker led all players with 733 receiving yards from Week 11 through the end of the regular season in 2019.
Huddle Up: Taken one step further, Parker's 918 yards over the second half of the season (beginning on Nov. 1) was second only to Michael Thomas' 962. Parker's fifth-year breakout came largely as a result of staying healthy for the first time in his career, a season-ending injury to Preston Williams and Ryan Fitzpatrick's belief in his ball skills. Despite the looming threat of a midseason quarterback change and the return of Williams, Parker has done enough to be considered a strong WR2 option in fantasy.

San Francisco 49ers RB Matt Breida signed his one-year contract tender Thursday, April 16.
Huddle Up: Breida was a hot draft target in 2019, but he has slipped firmly behind RBs Raheem Mostert and Tevin Coleman following injuries last season. He's at risk of being cut and will need to latch on elsewhere to have a shot at returning fantasy value.
Posted 4/14/2020 4:03 pm UTC
Ohio State RB J.K. Dobbins, as an update to previous reports, felt the Miami Dolphins really liked him following his in-person meeting with head coach Brian Flores and general manager Chris Grier in early March. The Miami Herald's Barry Jackson believes the Dolphins are likely to take a running back during the first two days of the NFL Draft, possibly selecting Dobbins or Georgia RB D'Andre Swift at No. 26 overall. Or they may look to select LSU RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire, Wisconsin RB Jonathan Taylor or FSU RB Cam Akers at 39th or 56th overall. Whichever back selected would then be paired with RB Jordan Howard as the team's top-two backs.
Huddle Up: This needs to obviously still play out through the NFL Draft, but it could lead to Howard ending up in yet another committee approach, lowering his overall value. Stay tuned.
Posted 4/04/2020 9:33 pm UTC
San Francisco 49ers RB Matt Breida may not make the final roster next season because of the other running backs on the roster, in the opinion of NBC Sports Bay Area's Matt Maiocco.
Huddle Up: Breida fell behind Tevin Coleman and Raheem Mostert on the depth chart this season and could be on the trade block this offseason. He could be a solid backup for a team, but his fantasy value is uncertain at this point.
Posted 3/29/2020 12:52 pm UTC
Miami Dolphins RB Jordan Howard (shoulder) said he is completely recovered from the shoulder injury that bothered him at the end of the 2019 season.
Huddle Up: Howard is expected to receive the bulk of the carries for the Dolphins in 2020 and should be viewed as a low-end RB2 in most fantasy formats, although he's unlikely to receive many goal-line opportunities.
Posted 3/28/2020 5:42 pm UTC
San Francisco 49ers RB Matt Breida is a potential candidate to be traded, in the opinion of
Huddle Up: Breida saw a decline from his career numbers of 2018 (1,075 total yards, five TDs), totaling 743 yards and two scores last season. More alarmingly, he only had nine rushing attempts for 19 yards during the Niners' three-game ground-heavy run to the Super Bowl and with San Fran already rostering Tevin Coleman, Raheem Mostert, Jeff Wilson and possibly getting Jerick McKinnon back after a pair of seasons missed to injury, don't be surprised to see Breida dealt.
Posted 3/21/2020 9:36 pm UTC
Free-agent RB Jordan Howard (Eagles) officially signed with the Miami Dolphins Saturday, March 21. Official terms of the contract were not disclosed.
Huddle Up: Howard likely will receive most of the work at running back for the Dolphins and can be at least a No. 3 back in fantasy leagues.
Posted 3/17/2020 8:19 pm UTC
San Francisco 49ers restricted free-agent RB Matt Breida was tendered at a second-round level Tuesday, March 17, according to a source.
Huddle Up: Breida will return to the backfield mix alongside Raheem Mostert, Tevin Coleman and Jerick McKinnon in 2020. He's likely to begin the season as the No. 3 option from the group and won't be worth much thought on draft day.
Posted 3/17/2020 6:53 pm UTC
Philadelphia Eagles impending free-agent RB Jordan Howard is in agreement on a two-year deal worth more than $10 million with the Miami Dolphins, according to a source Tuesday, March 17.
Huddle Up: Howard was limited to just 10 games last season, due to injury. He finished with 525 rushing yards and six touchdowns while adding 10 receptions for another 69 yards and a touchdown. He should have the lion's share of the backfield work with the Dolphins and could be a low-end RB2, though he shouldn't be expected to have many goal-line opportunities.
Posted 3/09/2020 7:32 pm UTC
Miami Dolphins WR Preston Williams (knee) said he will be ready for the start of the regular season, but the team hopes he will be able to participate in training camp.
Huddle Up: Williams probably was the best receiver for the Dolphins before he got hurt, so he has a good chance to win a starting job in 2020. Fantasy players should monitor his rehab during the offseason, but he could be at least a No. 4 receiver in fantasy leagues.
Posted 2/25/2020 8:21 pm UTC
San Francisco 49ers RB Matt Breida is likely to receive an RFA tender, according to David Lombardi of The Athletic Tuesday, Feb. 25.
Huddle Up: Breida took a back seat to Raheem Mostert and Tevin Coleman during the Niners' run to Super Bowl LIV. He totaled 743 yards from scrimmage and two touchdowns in the regular season while starting just five games. He should be viewed as the team's third option in the backfield if he returns in 2020.
Posted 2/24/2020 2:18 am UTC
Miami Dolphins TE Mike Gesicki will likely be used as a slot receiver in sets featuring three or more receivers in offensive coordinator Chan Gailey's system, according to Cameron Wolfe of
Huddle Up: After a quiet rookie year, Gesicki showed signs of life in 2019, finishing with 51 catches for 570 yards and five touchdowns. He could be worth a flier as a high-upside TE2.
Posted 2/03/2020 7:01 pm UTC
San Francisco 49ers RB Matt Breida did not play a single offensive staff in Super Bowl LIV, according to Greg Auman of The Athletic.
Huddle Up: Breida is set to become a restricted free agent in March. It's unclear why he became the forgotten man in San Francisco's backfield so quickly, although his role dried up shortly after he fumbled twice in a Week 15 loss to the Atlanta Falcons. Breida has done enough during his time in San Francisco to draw some interest from other teams, but his fantasy prospects look bleaker now than they did at the same time last year.
Posted 1/29/2020 8:14 pm UTC
Miami Dolphins WR Preston Williams (knee) said he is ahead of schedule in his rehab and should be ready for the start of the regular season at the latest.
Huddle Up: Williams was one of the Dolphins' top receivers before the injury and finished with 428 yards and three touchdowns in eight regular season games. He has a chance to be a starting receiver for Miami next season and will be a late round option in fantasy drafts.
Posted 1/24/2020 9:20 pm UTC
Miami Dolphins WR Albert Wilson likely will be asked to restructure his contract this offseason if he wants to remain with the team. The Dolphins would save $9.5 million in salary cap space if they release Wilson.
Huddle Up: Wilson had a disappointing 2019 season with 351 yards and one touchdown. The Dolphins likely will look to upgrade at the position so Wilson probably would drop down the depth chart if he stays. He probably can be avoided in fantasy leagues next season.
Posted 1/22/2020 9:34 pm UTC
Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Fitzpatrick is expected to be on the roster next season, according to general manager Chris Grier.
Huddle Up: The Dolphins are expected to select a quarterback in the first round of the 2020 NFL Draft, but Fitzpatrick may be a bridge quarterback next season. Fitzpatrick could be a No. 2 fantasy quarterback if he remains the starter.
Posted 1/14/2020 3:33 am UTC
Miami Dolphins WR Albert Wilson is scheduled to count $10.833 million against the 2020 salary cap and carries a dead-cap charge of $1.333, making him a possible cut for the Dolphins.
Huddle Up: Wilson has struggled with hip injuries the past two seasons and is not a viable 2020 fantasy option after failing to capitalize on possessing traits and an opportunity that could have put him on the map.
Posted 12/27/2019 11:52 pm UTC
Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Fitzpatrick (shoulder) fully participated in practice Friday, Dec. 27, and is not on the injury report for Week 17.
Huddle Up: Fitzpatrick has played well at times this season but will be facing a tough New England Patriots defense this week. He can be avoided in most fantasy leagues.
Posted 12/27/2019 11:51 pm UTC
Miami Dolphins WR Allen Hurns (ankle, neck) was limited during practice Friday, Dec. 27, and is listed as questionable for Week 17.
Huddle Up: Hurns appears to have a chance to play in Week 17, but fantasy players will need to check the inactive list. He will have a tough matchup this week and can be avoided in fantasy leagues.
Posted 12/27/2019 10:05 pm UTC
Philadelphia Eagles RB Jordan Howard (shoulder) fully participated in practice Friday, Dec. 27, and is not on the injury report for Week 17.
Huddle Up: Howard will return to the lineup after missing multiple weeks because of his shoulder injury. He likely will see limited carries during the game since Miles Sanders has taken over the starting job. Fantasy players may be able to find better options for their lineups and can keep Howard on the bench.
Posted 12/27/2019 4:57 pm UTC
Philadelphia Eagles RB Jordan Howard will be third running back in Week 17 behind RB Miles Sanders and RB Boston Scott.
Huddle Up: Howard has no starting luster in fantasy this week. Miles Sanders remains a low-end RB1 or an elite RB2.
Posted 12/26/2019 11:42 pm UTC
Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Fitzpatrick (shoulder) fully participated in practice Thursday, Dec. 26.
Huddle Up: Fitzpatrick will be facing one of the top defenses in the NFL this week and can be avoided in standard fantasy leagues.
Posted 12/26/2019 11:32 pm UTC
Miami Dolphins WR Allen Hurns (ankle, neck) was limited during practice Thursday, Dec. 26.
Huddle Up: Hurns has only been targeted three times over the last two games and has been held to under 50 yards in four of the last five games. He probably can be avoided in most fantasy leagues.
Posted 12/26/2019 5:17 pm UTC
Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Fitzpatrick (shoulder) will get the start in Week 17 on Sunday, Dec. 29, as the quarterback who gives the team 'the best chance to win,' head coach Brian Flores said Thursday, Dec. 26.
Huddle Up: Fitz is coming off a season-best 419-yard, four-TD effort against the Bengals in Week 16 and ordinarily would be a solid QB1 streamer aside from the brutal road matchup against a Patriots defense yielding the fewest fantasy points against opposing QBs. Stay away unless you're truly desperate.
Posted 12/26/2019 4:29 pm UTC
Philadelphia Eagles RB Jordan Howard (shoulder) is expected to be cleared for contact Thursday, Dec. 26.
Huddle Up: Head coach Doug Pederson also said they would ride the hot hand in Miles Sanders. So you can't expect a lot out of Howard in the season finale against the New York Giants. It's not a great matchup, but Howard is worthy of flex consideration on his own merits. There are just too many negatives against him this week, which should keep him on your bench.
