On four occasions last season, the Dolphins were forced to turn to a backup quarterback after their starter was knocked out of a game. They signed White to a two-year, $8 million contract this offseason with $4.5 million guaranteed to operate as the primary backup to Tagovailoa and he competed with the 2022 seventh-round pick Thompson throughout the summer for the job. There was a point this summer where some who follow the team felt Thompson may pass White on the depth chart, but for now the team is going with White as the QB2.
MIA QB Tua Tagovailoa - Week 13 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 13 at Washington Commanders
Tua Tagovailoa struggled a bit last week in a tough matchup, throwing for 243 yards with one touchdown and three turnovers. Tagovailoa has struggled with turnovers this season as he's currently 4th in the league in total turnovers (14) this season. He'll look to reverse that trend in Week 13 as he faces a favorable Commanders defense. Washington has given up the most average fantasy points to opposing quarterbacks this season. With Miami's high-powered offense in this matchup, we like Tagovailoa a lot in Week 13. He should be viewed as a top five option at the position.
