Dolphins Beat: OC Bill Lazor has been team's MVP this season

ESPN - [Full Article]

Dolphins beat writer James Walker on OC Bill Lazor:

Lazor, in some ways, has been Miami’s MVP this season. His system works. Miami’s points per game have gone up from 19.8 to 24.3 with pretty much the same skill players. Lazor also pushed Ryan Tannehill to set career highs in touchdowns (26) and passer rating (93.2). Last week’s performance (396 yards, four touchdowns) was as good as I’ve seen Tannehill play in three seasons. He has certainly solidified his case to be Miami’s starting quarterback next season, and I expect the Dolphins to at least pick up his fifth-year option for 2016. Lazor is direct and a clear communicator, and that is what the players needed. I expect Miami’s offense to be pretty good next season with another offseason of drafting and signing players who better fit Lazor's scheme.

Fantasy Impact: 

Lazor has helped Tannehill post top 10 fantasy numbers this season. He's averaging 251 yards passing, 1.7 TD (and just 0.8 INT) to go along with a total of 317 yards rushing, which is the 5th-highest total by a quarterback this year.
