2018 Fantasy Outlook
The Dolphins claimed Petty off waivers this offseason after the Jets cut their 2015 fourth-round pick. Petty will compete with David Fales over the No. 3 quarterback role behind Ryan Tannehill and Brock Osweiler, and holds minimal fantasy value in that role. Read Past Outlooks

The Dolphins waived Petty (oblique) from injured reserve Tuesday, Dennis Waszak Jr. of the Associated Press reports.
ANALYSIS
Petty was claimed off waivers by Miami in May, but failed to beat out Brock Osweiler and David Fales and was subsequently put on IR with an oblique issue. Petty is now free to sign elsewhere, though the list of potential suitors may be in short supply. The former fourth-round pick in 2015 has completed just 53.1 percent of his passes and has thrown 10 interceptions in 10 career games.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2017
2016
2015
As a rookie, Petty was thrust onto the Jets' never-ending QB carousel and made four starts at the tail end of the season. He only delivered one win, while completing 75 of 133 attempts (56.4 percent) for 809 yards, three touchdowns and seven interceptions. A torn labrum in his left shoulder ended his season in Week 16, but the 25-year-old is reportedly 100 percent healthy heading into the 2017 campaign. McCown enters Week 1 as the starter, but Petty did outplay Christian Hackenberg during the preseason, making a strong case for the No. 2 job.
Petty’s projections for the coming season took a hit when the Jets re-signed quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick. Now relegated to the third-string slot once again, it wouldn’t be surprising if Petty failed to see the field at all for a second consecutive campaign.
Despite his eye-popping numbers in college, there is some question as to whether Petty is a legitimate NFL quarterback or merely the latest product of Baylor's fantastic system. Petty passed for 8,055 yards with a 9.70 YPA and 61:10 TD:INT ratio his last two years in Waco, but his completion percentage was a modest 62.6, nearly 10 percent lower than that of Robert Griffin III in 2011. Petty possesses starting-caliber size (6-3, 230) and arm strength, but he comes from a one-read system and still has to learn how to scan a defense and work through progressions. Already 24 years old, he has a quick release, solid footwork/balance and is known for competitiveness, toughness and intelligence. Still, Petty's a project, and with Geno Smith and Ryan Fitzpatrick ahead of him on the depth chart, he probably won't be rushed.
