Teddy Bridgewater46.531.5337.11.810.866.121.40.3123

Tua Tagovailoa: This is shaping up to be a make-or-break season for Tua. With the team trading for Tyreek Hill and signing Terron Armstead, a lack of significant improvement could put the team in the market for a first-round quarterback in 2023. Even if the Dolphins employ a more run-focused offense under Mike McDaniel, Tagovailoa, at a minimum, should post better year-over-year stats given the much improved supporting cast.

Chase Edmonds: The Dolphins have a new-look backfield with the additions of Edmonds, Raheem Mostert and Sony Michel, but the team gave Edmonds the largest contract and he's likely to be Miami's most productive fantasy back in 2022 even if he ranks third in carries. The former Cardinal has averaged more than 4.5 yards per carry in each of the past three seasons and has a total of 96 catches for 713 yards over the past two seasons.

Raheem Mostert: Mostert follows McDaniel from San Francisco and has made the most of his opportunities, when healthy. The problem, of course, is that durability has eluded him. Mostert missed almost all of 2021 with a knee injury and played just eight games in 2020. If he's able to stay healthy for (close to) a full season, he should outperform his ADP.

Sony Michel: Michel toted the rock a league-high 129 times in the final six regular-season games (Weeks 13-18) for the Rams last season as he rushed for 540 yards and three touchdowns. While Michel enters the season behind Edmonds and Mostert on the depth chart, there could be an opportunity for him to become an early-down workhorse if/when Mostert misses time.

Jaylen Waddle88.1965.75.64180.2177.22
Cedrick Wilson36413.
Trent Sherfield13159.20.900027.82
Erik Ezukanma7.893.10.600016.81
Preston Williams2.935.20.20006.17

Tyreek Hill: Tua Tagovailoa is a winner following Hill's trade to Miami, but that's not the case for Hill given the quarterback downgrade from Patrick Mahomes. Hill set a career high in receptions (111) last year with a non-rookie low in Y/R (11.2). Instead of being in the mix to be the first receiver off the board in fantasy drafts, Hill becomes a solid mid-tier WR1 option for fantasy managers.

Jaylen Waddle: Waddle (somewhat quietly) had a very impressive 2021 season with a rookie-record 104 receptions, as he went over the 1,000-yard mark and scored a total of seven touchdowns. It's unlikely that his 2022 numbers will be much better than they were in his rookie season with Hill in town, but he'll be a solid WR2 in both fantasy and real life.


Mike Gesicki51.3566.63.2000101.51
Durham Smythe14.2132.30.700024.53
Hunter Long3.335.20.20006.37

Mike Gesicki: One of my favorite fantasy tight ends going into last season, Gesicki's 2022 outlook isn't as rosy with the team trading for Tyreek Hill and a new coaching staff that has a run-centric focus. The athletic tight end projects to be third in line for targets behind Hill and second-year receiver Jaylen Waddle. Fantasy managers should expect plenty of week-to-week volatility from Gesicki, even if the final numbers are close to last year's production.
