2020 Fantasy Outlook
The fifth overall pick in this year's draft, Tagovailoa likely would compete for the Week 1 starting job if not for injury concerns. Specifically, a hip dislocation suffered last November. Tagovailoa was given medical clearance for football activities in March, but the extent of his recovery is uncertain. Durability is about the only question with Tagovailoa, who also had surgery on both ankles, sprained his right knee, fractured his left index finger and suffered a concussion during his three-year stint at Alabama. The lefty's dual-threat skills are plenty evident, getting top marks from scouts for his accuracy and decision making. (Indeed, at Alabama he threw 87 touchdowns to a mere 11 interceptions in 32 games.) At 6-0, he doesn't have ideal height, but gone are the days when short stature is held against a quarterback, especially one who is mobile outside the pocket and possesses a strong arm with a quick release. Ryan Fitzpatrick is expected to start, but Tagovailoa could ease into the job later this season, provided his hip checks out. Fitzpatrick turns 38 in November, and Tua is the future. Any rookie quarterback is a risk (especially behind an offensive line as weak as the Dolphins'), but Tagovailoa has the skills that portend fantasy upside. Read Past Outlooks

Missing practice with illness

Illness
September 30, 2020
Dolphins head coach Brian Flores said Tagovailoa wouldn't practice Wednesday due to a non-COVID-19-related illness, Hal Habib of The Palm Beach Post reports.
ANALYSIS
The Dolphins are hopeful that a day off will be all Tagovailoa needs to move past the ailment, but he'll likely have to return to practice in some fashion Thursday or Friday to gain clearance for Sunday's game against the Seahawks. If the rookie isn't ready to fill his normal No. 2 role behind starting quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick, Miami could promote Reid Sinnett from the practice squad to serve as its Week 4 backup.
