Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Fitzpatrick is expected to open the season as the starter, but the team is reportedly 'open-minded' about playing Tua Tagovailoa and has no intention to 'redshirt' him, according to the Miami Herald's Barry Jackson via a source.
Huddle Up: The Dolphins open the season against three stout defenses over the first five weeks of the season (New England Patriots, Buffalo Bills and San Francisco 49ers), so a change could be made sooner than later if Fitzpatrick cannot carry last year's finish over into 2020. Even if and when he takes over the job this year, Tagovailoa needs to be viewed as a low-end QB2 at best.

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.
