The injury occurred when Bridgewater hit a helmet while throwing what became a pick-six to Kyle Dugger. Skylar Thompson entered the game and could be in line to get the start in Week 18 in what is now a must-win against the Jets with Tua Tagovailoa still in the concussion protocol.
MIA QB Teddy Bridgewater - Week 17 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 17 at New England Patriots
Teddy Bridgewater will draw the start for Miami this week as Tua Tagovailoa has been ruled out with a concussion. Bridgewater looked solid in limited playing time earlier in the season. Most notably against the Vikings when he threw for 329 yards with two touchdowns while playing on just 69% (nice) of the offensive snaps. This week he'll face a Patriots defense that hasn't been as tough on quarterbacks lately, giving up the 12th-most average fantasy points to the position over the past four weeks. Overall, Bridgewater is in a nice position with capable receivers in Tyreek Hill and Jaylen Waddle. If you're in a pinch, Bridgewater is a decent option for Week 17. He'll be right around that QB15 range.
