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 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 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 completed 20-of-26 passes for 145 yards, no touchdowns and one interception in Week 15 against the New England Patriots and he rushed for nine yards and two touchdowns.
Huddle Up: Tua failed to throw a touchdown for the first time in any of his seven starts, but he made up for it with his first two-touchdown rushing game. He has three rushing scores over the past two outings, too. He'll look to keep up the good work in Week 16 against the Las Vegas Raiders on the road.

Miami Dolphins QB Tua Tagovailoa (ankle) will start Week 15's game against the New England Patriots. He rolled an ankle in Week 14's game versus the Kansas City Chiefs but did not appear on the final version of the injury report after fully participating in all three of the team's practice sessions during the week.
Huddle Up: Tagovailoa has thrown for 612 yards in his last two starts but has a somewhat challenging matchup against the New England defense, which has allowed the seventh-fewest passing yards in the NFL this season. He should be viewed as a high-end QB2 option in fantasy leagues with 12 or more teams and possesses tremendous upside.

Miami Dolphins QB Tua Tagovailoa (ankle) fully participated in practice Friday, Dec. 18, and is not on the injury report for Week 15.
Huddle Up: Tagovailoa has thrown for 612 yards in the last two games but could be without two of his top targets this week. He can be a starting option in two-quarterback leagues, but fantasy players in standard leagues likely will be able to find better options for their lineup.

Miami Dolphins QB Tua Tagovailoa (ankle) fully participated in practice Thursday, Dec. 17.
Huddle Up: Tagovailoa has been playing better over the last few weeks and has posted at least 295 yards in the last two weeks. He should be a starting quarterback in two-quarterback leagues but is a risky option in standard leagues.

Miami Dolphins QB Tua Tagovailoa (ankle) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Dec. 16.
Huddle Up: Tagovailoa is coming off his best game of the season and should have some success against the New England Patriots this week. He could be a possible low-end No. 1 quarterback in some deeper leagues this week.

Miami Dolphins QB Tua Tagovailoa completed 28-of-48 passes for 316 yards, two touchdowns and one interception in Week 14 against the Kansas City Chiefs and he added six runs for 24 yards and a score.
Huddle Up: Tagovailoa actually made fewer mistakes than defending Super Bowl MVP Patrick Mahomes, who was picked off three times. It was a good measuring stick game for Tua, not that anyone thought he didn't belong before this one. He remains a decent high-end QB2 in most fantasy leagues of 12 or more teams with tremendous upside. The Dolphins host the New England Patriots in Week 15.
