Dolphins QB Tua Tagovailoa (back, ankle) is expected to play vs. the Bengals tonight, "barring a setback," according to NFL Network's Tom Pelissero. It's safe to assume that Tua won't be at 100%, though, adding some risk to his Week 4 fantasy profile. Pelissero also confirms that WR Jaylen Waddle (groin) "should be good to go" for tonight.

The Dolphins list WR Jaylen Waddle (groin) as questionable for Thursday night's game vs. the Bengals. He got in limited practices on Tuesday and Wednesday. We've seen nothing to suggest that Waddle is in danger of missing this one, but you'll need to check back tomorrow around 7 pm ET to make sure he's active.

Dolphins WR Jaylen Waddle recorded 4 grabs for 102 yards in a Week 3 win over Buffalo. He was on his way to busting before catching downfield balls of 32 and 45 yards in the 4th quarter, the latter of which came on 3rd and 22. His 6 targets (on 20 team pass attempts) paced the team on a day that turned up only 39(!) offensive plays. That helped contribute to a dud from Tyreek Hill (2-33), who had an 8-yard catch wiped out on a questionable penalty. Waddle and Hill remain top-15 fantasy WRs moving forward.

Tua Tagovailoa's lone TD pass went to WR Jaylen Waddle in Sunday's season-opening win over the Patriots. But that's about all that went against Tyreek Hill. The former Chief claimed 36.4% of Miami's targets and turned those 12 targets into an 8-94 receiving line. We wouldn't bet on Hill staying at that level, but it sure looks like target volume won't be a problem in his new home. Waddle, meanwhile, tallied a 4-69-1 line on just 5 targets, with most of that coming via his 42-yard catch-and-run TD. It's too early to panic on Waddle, but he'll certainly need the gap between his target share and Hill's to close some.

Dolphins WR Jaylen Waddle (quad) isn’t listed on the final Week 1 injury report. After missing most of August, Waddle practiced all week, including full workouts on Thursday and Friday. It doesn’t look like that quad will be a problem in Sunday’s opener vs. the Patriots.

Dolphins WR Jaylen Waddle (quad) was upgraded to full practice participation Thursday. That bodes well for his outlook Sunday against the Patriots. Don't expect Waddle to rise in our Week 1 WR rankings, though, with a challenging matchup and potentially low-scoring game.

Dolphins WR Jaylen Waddle (quad) got in a limited practice on Wednesday. He missed most of August and evidently still isn't at 100%. But a limited workout early in the week puts him on track to play vs. the Patriots on Sunday. We'll get another update on Waddle's status tomorrow.

Dolphins WR Jaylen Waddle practiced on Monday, according to The Miami Herald's Barry Jackson. Waddle missed most of August with a lower-body injury, but Miami never seemed very concerned about his Week 1 availability. We'll track his status on this week's injury report, but Waddle can be penciled into fantasy lineups for now.

Dolphins HC Mike McDaniel said Thursday that he's “very, very, very confident” WR Jaylen Waddle will be ready for Week 1. Waddle has been sidelined for about 3 weeks with what's believed to be a lower-body injury. McDaniel has downplayed the situation all along, so we'll see. We're monitoring the situation but haven't moved Waddle in the WR Rankings.

Dolphins WR Jaylen Waddle hasn't practiced in ~10 days with what’s believed to be a “minor soft tissue injury,” per insider Adam Beasley. He’s sat out both preseason games. The team isn’t “outwardly concerned” about Waddle’s ability to play Week 1, but we’ll track the 2nd-year WR’s progress leading up to the opener vs. New England.

The Dolphins fired HC Brian Flores. This one was not expected. Flores lasted 3 seasons in Miami, compiling a 24-25 record. He won 19 games over the past 2 years, though, and seemed to have the Fins heading in the right direction. According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, Miami is retaining GM Chris Grier. "A power struggle in Miami," Rapoport tweeted. We'll see where the Dolphins go at HC.

Dolphins WR Jaylen Waddle is set to be activated from the COVID list, HC Brian Flores said. So Waddle should get in a full week of practice and play vs. the Saints next Monday night. The rookie averaged 9.2 targets, 7.6 catches and 87.2 yards over his last 5 games.

Dolphins WR Jaylen Waddle has been placed on the COVID list. He's a long shot to be cleared in time to play vs. the Jets on Sunday. His absence would leave WR DeVante Parker and TE Mike Gesicki as the clear top 2 options in Miami's passing game -- assuming they avoid the COVID list. QB Tua Tagovailoa's Week 15 fantasy stock takes a sizable hit without Waddle.

Dolphins WR Will Fuller (finger) won't play vs. the Ravens on Thursday night, HC Brian Flores said. There's no timetable for Fuller's return. With WR DeVante Parker on IR, WR Jaylen Waddle and TE Mike Gesicki will continue to dominate Dolphins targets.

Dolphins QB Tua Tagovailoa (ribs, finger) will not start today's game vs. the Texans, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Tua reportedly didn't feel good enough during pre-game warmups to start, but he will be active as QB Jacoby Brissett's backup. It's a missed opportunity in an excellent matchup. Brissett was decent in 3 starts earlier this season, averaging 230 yards and 1.3 TDs on a 67% completion rate but just 5.8 yards per attempt. He's only in play in 2-QB and Superflex leagues and is a slight downgrade for Miami's offense.

The Dolphins placed WR DeVante Parker on IR after he suffered a setback with his hamstring injury in practice this week, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. So he'll miss at least the next 3 games vs. the Texans, Ravens and Jets. We'll see if Parker is ready come Week 12, but he's certainly not a must-stash on fantasy rosters. WR Jaylen Waddle and TE Mike Gesicki both get target boosts with Parker out.

Dolphins WR DeVante Parker had a setback in practice this week and will be listed as doubtful for Sunday's game vs. the Texans, HC Brian Flores said. It's unclear if Parker's setback was to his shoulder or hamstring. He's seen nice volume when on the field this season but hasn't been able to stay healthy. Parker's absence on Sunday boosts the volume projections for WR Jaylen Waddle and TE Mike Gesicki.

Dolphins WR DeVante Parker (shoulder, hamstring) is out for Sunday's game vs. the Jaguars. WR Preston Williams (groin) is listed as questionable, while WR Will Fuller (finger) remains on IR. Jaylen Waddle, Mack Hollins, Albert Wilson and Isaiah Ford are Miami's healthy WRs right now.

Dolphins HC Brian Flores confirmed that QB Tua Tagovailoa (ribs) is on track to start Sunday's game vs. the Jaguars, barring a setback between now and then. We wouldn't trust Tagovailoa in starting lineups outside of 2-QB leagues, but he should be an upgrade over QB Jacoby Brissett for Miami's offense.
