Leader of reloaded offense
QBMiami Dolphins
March 23, 2022
Tagovailoa is positioned to lead a revamped Dolphins offense in the 2022 season, with Miami most recently having acquired six-time Pro Bowl wideout Tyreek Hill from the Chiefs on Wednesday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.
ANALYSIS
The Dolphins will surrender significant draft capital in exchange for Hill, giving up five picks headlined by 2022 first-round and second-round selections. Even so, the pairing of Hill with 2021 rookie standout Jaylen Waddle can't be overstated. Heading into what looks like a make-or-break Year 3 campaign, Tagovailoa will not only have the benefit of an improved receiving corps that also returns Mike Gesicki and DeVante Parker, but he'll also get significant upgrades to his offensive line following the offseason pickups of left tackle Terron Armstead (knee) and left guard Connor Williams in free agency. Additionally, head coach Mike McDaniel could have a chance to finally provide Tagovailoa with a rushing game to rely on, given his success in San Francisco and the arrivals of Chase Edmonds and Raheem Mostert (knee). The flip side, of course, is that if Tagovailoa fails to make a leap forward in spite of all the offensive upgrades, he could quickly face pressure from new backup Teddy Bridgewater (concussion) for the starting job.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2021
2020
The fifth overall pick in last year's draft, Tagovailoa entered the season recovering from a serious hip injury and backing up Ryan Fitzpatrick. By Week 7, though, he was the starter. While he flashed a strong arm and dual-threat skills, he largely underwhelmed — in fact, he was twice pulled for Fitzpatrick. Tagovailoa ranked 24th in average target depth (7.8), 29th in completion percentage (64.1) and 30th in YPA (6.3). He really struggled in the face of the pass rush, as his on-target percentage under pressure was 40.7 percent (31st) for a 28.9 passer rating (33rd of 35 QBs). In Tua's defense, he was not served well by his teammates. Miami receivers struggled to get separation, which limited the yards after catch (27th) and forced Tua to throw 20.3 percent of his attempts into tight windows, fifth highest in the league (Fitzpatrick was first at 21.7 percent). The Dolphins addressed the problem, signing vertical-threat Will Fuller and drafting Tua's speedy former Alabama teammate 
Jaylen Waddle sixth overall. The Dolphins also swapped out OC Chan Gailey by promoting RB coach Eric Studesville and TE coach George Godsey as co-coordinators. How the offense will change is unclear, but for Tagovailoa's sake, hopefully it's a more innovative attack. The pressure is on for a big step forward this season.
The fifth overall pick in this year's draft, Tagovailoa likely would compete for the Week 1 starting job if not for injury concerns. Specifically, a hip dislocation suffered last November. Tagovailoa was given medical clearance for football activities in March, but the extent of his recovery is uncertain. Durability is about the only question with Tagovailoa, who also had surgery on both ankles, sprained his right knee, fractured his left index finger and suffered a concussion during his three-year stint at Alabama. The lefty's dual-threat skills are plenty evident, getting top marks from scouts for his accuracy and decision making. (Indeed, at Alabama he threw 87 touchdowns to a mere 11 interceptions in 32 games.) At 6-0, he doesn't have ideal height, but gone are the days when short stature is held against a quarterback, especially one who is mobile outside the pocket and possesses a strong arm with a quick release. Ryan Fitzpatrick is expected to start, but Tagovailoa could ease into the job later this season, provided his hip checks out. Fitzpatrick turns 38 in November, and Tua is the future. Any rookie quarterback is a risk (especially behind an offensive line as weak as the Dolphins'), but Tagovailoa has the skills that portend fantasy upside.
