Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Fitzpatrick's chances of returning to the team next season are 'slim and none,' according to Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald.
Huddle Up: Fitzpatrick has played some of the best ball of his career in Miami, but neither the NFL nor the Dolphins are going to change their opinion about him being anything more than a bridge quarterback, especially after turning 38 years old in November. The Dolphins also would prefer Tua Tagovailoa not having to look over his shoulder, which may be the biggest consideration of all. Look for Fitzpatrick to find yet another employer this offseason.

Miami Dolphins QB Tua Tagovailoa will remain the team's starting quarterback, according to general manager Chris Greer, who reiterated Tuesday, Jan. 5, that the organization is 'happy with his development.'
Huddle Up: There are far too many people who have already written off Tagovailoa because he didn't enjoy the same kind of instant success that draft classmates Joe Burrow and Justin Herbert did, which is a shame. Among the many things holding him back was dealing with a revolving door of receivers for most of his nine starts - a group that generally created less separation than any other group in the league. Depending on what the Dolphins add on offense this offseason, Tagovailoa could easily be a high-upside QB2 in 2021.

Miami Dolphins RB DeAndre Washington will be an unrestricted free agent this offseason and beat writer Barry Jackson doesn't expect the reserve tailback to be back in 2021.
Huddle Up: Washington and Matt Breida are each unrestricted free agents, but they fell behind Salvon Ahmed and Myles Gaskin for the majority of the backfield work, and the team is likely to look for additions outside of the organization or via the draft instead. Washington won't have any fantasy appeal in 2021, so he can mostly be ignored next time we draft.

Miami Dolphins RB Matt Breida will be an unrestricted free agent this offseason, and it appears he is unlikely to be back for 2021, according to beat writer Barry Jackson.
Huddle Up: Salvon Ahmed and Myles Gaskin outplayed Breida down the stretch, who appeared to unofficially fall to No. 3 on the depth chart. He is likely to be looking for a new organization, but a prominent role is unlikely. He can mostly be ignored on draft day in 2021 in most fantasy leagues.

Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Fitzpatrick, who will be among the team's unrestricted free agents this offseason, is likely to be asked to return. However, the 38-year-old has been non-committal about whether he wants to play in the 2021 season.
Huddle Up: "Fitz-magic" was effective at times, and he also served as a mentor for rookie Tua Tagovailoa. Whether he returns to the organization or moves along to play somewhere else, he would still only be a No. 2 QB in most fantasy leagues at this juncture of his career.

Miami Dolphins WR Preston Williams (foot) is working out after undergoing foot surgery in November and is expected to be ready for the 2021 season.
Huddle Up: Williams played well when he was healthy and has a good chance to have a role in the passing game next season. Fantasy players should monitor his progress because he could be an option in most fantasy leagues.

Miami Dolphins QB Tua Tagovailoa practiced again Friday, Jan. 1, and appears to be all clear to play Sunday in Week 17.
Huddle Up: Tua gets a small bump with there being no threat of Ryan Fitzpatrick taking over midway through the game, but he's still a low-end QB2 consideration this week.

Miami Dolphins QB Tua Tagovailoa practiced Thursday, Dec. 31, suggesting he has not been deemed a close contact to QB Ryan Fitzpatrick who has tested positive for COVID-19.
Huddle Up: Good news for Miami -- at least for now -- and if Tua starts as scheduled Sunday, he'll be in it for the duration as there's no backup savior plan with Fitzpatrick out. That makes Tagovailoa a low-end QB2 fantasy consideration for the time being.

Miami Dolphins WR Preston Williams (foot) may have a chance to return to practice this week, according to head coach Brian Flores.
Huddle Up: Fantasy players can keep an eye on the situation, but Williams has not played since the beginning of November and likely will need to practice fully before he is cleared to play. He could be a possible option if the Dolphins make the playoffs but can be avoided at this point.

Miami Dolphins QB Tua Tagovailoa will remain the team's starting quarterback, even though he was pulled from Week 16's game against the Las Vegas Raiders, according to head coach Brian Flores.
Huddle Up: 38-year-old Ryan Fitzpatrick came off the bench to lead three consecutive scoring drives in a come-from-behind victory in Week 16, keeping Miami's playoff hopes alive, but the Dolphins will once again turn to the 22-year-old rookie next week against the Buffalo Bills. From a fantasy standpoint, Tagovailoa is still too inconsistent at this stage of his career to be trusted by owners who will be playing in Week 17.

Miami Dolphins QB Tua Tagovailoa was replaced by QB Ryan Fitzpatrick in the fourth quarter against the Las Vegas Raiders in Week 16. He completed 17 of his 22 passes for 94 yards and a touchdown and rushed three times for 11 yards in a 26-25 win.
Huddle Up: Tagovailoa wasn't able to push the ball down the field, resulting in the quarterback swap with the Dolphins trailing late. The rookie is still too inconsistent to trust as a fantasy starter, especially with the Dolphins fighting for a playoff spot.

Miami Dolphins RB Myles Gaskin rushed 14 times for 87 yards and caught five passes for 82 yards and two touchdowns in a 26-25 win over the Las Vegas Raiders in Week 16.
Huddle Up: In his first game back from injury, Gaskin led the Miami backfield, piling up a career high in yards from scrimmage. He is immediately back in the RB2 conversation.
