Tua Tagovailoa, as HC Brian Flores said last night, will start in Week 17 at Buffalo.
“Tua is a resilient kid,” Flores said Saturday night. “He’s a tough-minded kid. He’s happy that ‘Fitzy’ went in there and we won the game because he is a selfless, team-first guy. That’s why he is here. We’re always going to do what’s best for the team and try to help the team win.”

Flores called Fitz the team's relief pitcher, indicating he could come in later in games like a closer in baseball. While overall it's not an ideal situation, fantasy football or not, it does seem to be working in the present for Miami. It looks like Tua will start in Week 17, but with a chance he could get pulled in the game, he's obviously not a safe play.
