Teddy Bridgewater Fantasy Football News | Shark Bites

Shark Bites are the latest fantasy football news & NFL updates. Draft Sharks has been in business since 1999. And when we started, redraft was the dominant form of fantasy football. Check out what we've learned about this most basic form of fantasy football along the way.

The Lions are signing QB Teddy Bridgewater, according to multiple reports. Bridgewater figures to back up Jared Goff. The timing of his addition could signal that Detroit wanted to see if rookie QB Hendon Hooker or journeyman Nate Sudfeld could fill that role. Bridgewater would likely be Goff with a lower floor and ceiling if pressed into duty. He went 49 of 79 passing with the Dolphins last year, averaging a career-high 8.6 yards per pass attempt. But Bridgewater sports just a 3.6% TD rate and 7.3 yards per attempt for his career. He'll turn 31 in November.

Dolphins QB Teddy Bridgewater (knee, right finger) is active for today's Wild Card game vs. the Bills. He'll back up QB Skylar Thompson. Bridgewater was only able to throw about 15 yards in practice this week, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.

Dolphins QB Teddy Bridgewater (knee, right finger) practiced in a limited fashion all week and is listed as questionable for Sunday's Wild Card game vs. the Bills. HC Mike McDaniel confirmed today that rookie QB Skylar Thompson will start and Bridgewater will serve as the backup. This was the expectation as of Wednesday, but now it's official. Though Thompson has been a respectable stand-in, he's far off the fantasy radar. The rookie has appeared in the majority of 3 games this season and has yet to surpass 200 yards passing with only 1 TD to his name. This also downgrades the value of any Dolphins' pass-catcher in this contest.

Dolphins QB Teddy Bridgewater (knee, right finger) practiced in a limited fashion again on Thursday. At this point, it's looking like rookie QB Skylar Thompson will be under center for Sunday's Wild Card game vs. the Bills. Dolphins OC Frank Smith did say on Thursday that Bridgewater is "working his butt off" in rehabilitating the dislocated pinky finger, per team reporter Joe Schad. We'll see if that effort is enough for him to supplant Thompson as the starter this weekend. Stay tuned for updates tomorrow.

Dolphins QB Teddy Bridgewater (knee, right finger) logged limited participation at Wednesday's practice. We shared earlier that starting QB Tua Tagovailoa has already been ruled out for Sunday's Wild Card contest vs. the Bills. It'll come down to rookie QB Skylar Thompson or Bridgewater under center this weekend. We'll continue to track this as the week unfolds. It's also worth noting Thompson (ankle) appears on the injury report with full practice participation.

Dolphins HC Mike McDaniel told reporters Wednesday that QB Tua Tagovailoa is out for Sunday's playoff opener against the Bills. Doctors have yet to clear the QB for football activity coming off his latest concussion. ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Miami is preparing as though Skylar Thompson will start. That doesn't rule out the possibility of Teddy Bridgewater returning from the finger injury on his throwing hand, but you should prepare as though the rookie will line up behind center. This obviously downgrades Tyreek Hill and Jaylen Waddle for all fantasy football formats.

Dolphins HC Mike McDaniel wouldn't say Monday where QB Tua Tagovailoa is in the concussion protocol but did say that he's seen Tagovailoa "sweating" in workouts. That suggests that Tua is at least in Stage 2 of the 5-stage protocol, giving him a chance to be cleared for Sunday's Wild Card game vs. the Bills. McDaniel said Monday that he'll have game plans for all 3 potential starting QBs, with both Tagovailoa and Teddy Bridgewater (finger) iffy. We'll get Miami's first practice report of the week on Wednesday.

Dolphins QB Teddy Bridgewater (knee, right finger) is active for today’s game vs. the Jets. He’s expected to back up QB Skylar Thompson.

Dolphins QB Teddy Bridgewater (knee, right finger) practiced in a limited capacity on Wednesday and Thursday. This is certainly an encouraging sign ahead of Week 18 vs. the Jets. There's still a cloud of uncertainty hanging over this matchup though. Fantasy managers should be prepared for the possibility that rookie QB Skylar Thompson gets the nod if Bridgewater trends downward tomorrow. We'll have more clarity by tomorrow. Check back in then.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport confirms that Dolphins QB Teddy Bridgewater dislocated his right pinkie in last week's loss to the Patriots. The finger is not broken, though, and "whether he can play this week will come down to swelling and if he can grip the ball well enough to throw," Rapoport adds. We'll keep an eye on Bridgewater's progress over the next few days, leading up to Sunday's must-win game vs. the Jets. If Bridgewater can't go, QB Skylar Thompson will get the start. Miami signed QB Mike Glennon to the practice squad on Wednesday.

Dolphins HC Mike McDaniel conceded Monday that QB Tua Tagovailoa (concussion) is not in the team's Week 18 plans. QB Teddy Bridgewater dislocated his right pinkie in the loss to the Patriots, which seemingly makes QB Skylar Thompson the favorite to start Sunday's must-win game vs. the Jets.

Dolphins QB Teddy Bridgewater is believed to have a broken finger on his right hand, according to Pro Football Talk. PFT's Mike Florio said on the Sunday Night Football pregame show that QB Tua Tagovailoa (concussion) is not expected to be cleared for Week 18. That means it'll likely be Skylar Thompson under center in next Sunday's must-win game vs. the Jets.

Dolphins QB Teddy Bridgewater left in the 3rd quarter of Sunday’s game at New England. After throwing an INT, Bridgewater hurt a finger while trying to make a tackle. We'll see if he’s able to return in the 4th quarter.

Dolphins QB Tua Tagovailoa (concussion) didn't practice all week and is out for Sunday's game vs. the Patriots. No surprise there considering the multiple concussions Tagovailoa has sustained this year. QB Teddy Bridgewater will make his first start of the season in New England. He's averaged a big 8.7 yards on 60 attempts in spot duty and should at least be able to support WRs Tyreek Hill and Jaylen Waddle as fantasy starters.

Dolphins HC Mike McDaniel announced Wednesday that QB Teddy Bridgewater will start Sunday against the Patriots. He also confirmed that QB Tua Tagovailoa suffered a concussion in last week's loss to the Packers. It's the 3rd concussion of the season for Tagovailoa, which makes it fair to wonder whether the starter will make it back for Week 18. We'll see about everything beyond this week. Bridgewater got 2 other games of prominent duty this year, throwing 3 TDs and 3 INTs in portions of games against the Bengals and Vikings. He sits in QB2 range in our Week 17 fantasy football rankings.

Dolphins QB Tua Tagovailoa is in the concussion protocol. Per HC Mike McDaniel, “nobody recognized anything with regard to” a hit during Sunday’s game. Tua simply met with doctors and reported symptoms. Unfortunately, we might be looking at a Teddy Bridgewater start in Week 17 at New England.

Dolphins HC Mike McDaniel said Monday that QB Tua Tagovailoa will work as the starter in practice this week and is expected to be ready for Sunday night's game against the Steelers, according to NFL Network's Cameron Wolfe. Tagovailoa, of course, last played in the Thursday night loss to Cincinnati in Week 4. We'll watch his status this week, but expect the Miami QB to be a viable starting option for fantasy football lineups in Week 7.

Dolphins QB Teddy Bridgewater (concussion, pectoral) is active for today’s game vs. the Vikings. He’ll back up QB Skylar Thompson, a 7th-round rookie making his 1st career start.

Dolphins QB Teddy. Bridgewater has cleared the concussion protocol, NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reports.

Dolphins QB Teddy Bridgewater (concussion, pectoral) is listed as questionable for this weekend's game vs. the Vikings. He got in a full practice on Friday, so it looks like he'll be available to back up QB Skylar Thompson, who will draw the start. QB Tua Tagovailoa (concussion) has been ruled out. He was listed as a full participant on Friday, so it looks like he has a chance to return for Week 7.
