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 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.
