Draft note
by John Paulsen
In the six games where Tagovailoa played at least 50 snaps–which excludes his first start (Week 8) along with partial games in Week 11 (thumb injury) and Week 16 (benched)–he averaged 256 yards and 1.3 touchdowns through the air, while adding 16 yards and 0.5 touchdowns as a runner. The resulting 18.9 fantasy points per game are more than what Ben Roethlisberger, Matt Ryan, Drew Brees and Joe Burrow averaged last season. The split indicates that Tagovailoa can produce when things are going well, and he’s poised for a jump heading into his sophomore season. The Dolphins added a lot of speed in the form of Will Fuller and Jaylen Waddle, who join DeVante Parker and Mike Gesicki to form a dangerous receiving corps. Since the 2001 season, 36 rookie quarterbacks started at least 12 games. Interestingly, each quarterback in this sample either scored 16.9 fantasy points or more (the “good” rookies), or they averaged 13.8 fantasy points or less (the “bad” rookies). Of the quarterbacks in the “bad” group who went on to start 12+ games as sophomores–and Tagovailoa definitely falls into this group–they saw an average increase of 25.3% in points per game in Year Two.

MIA QB Tua Tagovailoa - Week 6 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 6 at Jacksonville Jaguars

The Dolphins designated Tua Tagovailoa for return from IR, meaning he's eligible to play vs. Jaguars. No official decision has been made yet, but we'd expect him to play. However, his status is worth monitoring. Assuming he plays, he won't have as many weapons as he had at the start of the year. Will Fuller has been placed on IR and DeVante Parker has been listed as DNP this week with a shoulder/hamstring injury. We've only seen Tagovailoa play once this year, and that was against a tough Patriots defense. He gets a much easier matchup this week against the Jaguars who are 23rd in schedule-adjusted fantasy points allowed to QBs.

Tagovailoa isn't a great option this week as he's ranked outside our top 15 quarterbacks, but he's also not the worst option available if you need a streamer. As 4for4's Chris Allen noted, three of five opposing quarterbacks have finished in the Top 12 vs. the Jaguars this season.
