The Dolphins are set to sign WR Odell Beckham, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. The Miami Herald's Barry Jackson reports that Beckham is getting a $3 million base salary with another $5 million available in incentives. The 31-year-old was a part-time player for the Ravens last year, catching just 35 balls across 14 regular season games. But Beckham still flashed big-play pop, averaging a career-high 16.1 yards per catch on a 13.9-yard average target depth. He ranked 27th among 93 qualifiers in Pro Football Focus' receiving grades. Beckham will sit behind WRs Tyreek Hill and Jaylen Waddle in Miami and is unlikely to be a reliable fantasy play if those guys are healthy. But an injury to either could turn Beckham into a potential fantasy spot starter.

The Dolphins selected Virginia WR Malik Washington in Round 6 of the NFL Draft. A three-star recruit out of Georgia, Washington spent his first four years with an underwhelming Northwestern offense. He finished second on the team in catches and yards in 2021, then jumped to the team lead in both categories in 2022. The primary slot still tallied just 65-701-1 as a senior – but his underlying metrics at least supplied some promise. Washington posted a tiny 1.5% drop rate on 101 targets. He also forced 24 missed tackles, per Pro Football Focus. Last fall, we saw Washington’s best upon transferring to Virginia. The 5’8, 191-pounder crushed previous career highs with 111 catches, 1,384 yards, and 9 TDs. In fact, the yardage ranked fifth in the country. He excelled in contested situations and again proved slippery after the catch. Perhaps most impressive: Washington’s 3.15 yards per route run, which slotted 11th in a sample of 200 WRs. While undersized, Washington has the explosive ability to attract targets out of the slot. Note his 42.5-inch vertical and 10’6” broad jump from the Combine. WRs Tyreek Hill and Jaylen Waddle will continue to dominate targets in Miami. But Washington has a real shot to win the No. 3 WR job at some point this season. His competition: Braxton Berrios, River Cracraft, and Erik Ezukanma.

Dolphins QB Tua Tagovailoa (shoulder, quad) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice. It's confirmation that he'll be ready to go for Sunday night's showdown vs. the Bills.

Dolphins QB Tua Tagovailoa didn't sound concerned about his injured left shoulder after Sunday's loss to the Ravens. “Shoulder’s good," he told the media. "Just sore.” We'll tentatively expect Tagovailoa to play vs. the Bills next weekend but keep a close eye on his status throughout the week.

Dolphins QB Tua Tagovailoa hurt his left shoulder in the fourth quarter of Sunday's game vs. the Ravens. He's officially questionable to return -- but he won't be back with Miami down by 30. We'll look for further updates on Tagovailoa's status heading into Week 18's game vs. the Bills for the AFC East title. QB Mike White is Miami's backup.

Ravens S Kyle Hamilton (knee) and CB Brandon Stephens (ankle) are inactive for today's game against the Dolphins. We've moved S Geno Stone up the DB rankings some. That improves the matchup for Dolphins WR Tyreek Hill, who you were already playing anyway. The spot gets a little better for QB Tua Tagovailoa as well, though he remains a risky option and sits just outside the top 12 in our Week 17 QB rankings.

Dolphins QB Tua Tagovailoa (left thumb, quad) is not listed on the final Week 17 injury report. He was limited in Wednesday and Thursday’s practices but a full-go on Friday. We’re not expecting the thumb or quad to be an issue in this weekend’s game vs. the Ravens.

Dolphins WR Jaylen Waddle (ankle) is out for Sunday's game vs. the Ravens. He was always unlikely to play in this one and could also miss next weekend's regular-season finale vs. the Bills with his high-ankle sprain. WR Cedrick Wilson is the likely Waddle replacement but is no more than a cheap flier for DFS tournaments. WR Tyreek Hill and RBs Raheem Mostert and De'Von Achane are candidates for more targets with Waddle out.

Dolphins QB Tua Tagovailoa is on the Week 17 injury report with a left thumb and quad. He was limited in Wednesday's practice. We've heard nothing to suggest that Tagovailoa is in danger of missing this weekend's game vs. the Ravens, but we'll keep an eye on his status over the next few days.

Dolphins WR Tyreek Hill (ankle) is INACTIVE for today’s game vs. the Jets. He tried to give it a go but evidently didn’t feel well enough in pregame warmups. Hill’s absence removes 30% of Miami’s targets, 32% of the catches, 41% of the receiving yards, and 48% of the receiving TDs. It’s obviously a huge loss for QB Tua Tagovailoa, who is not a must-start against this tough Jets defense. The Dolphins figure to lean more on their run game today, while WR Jaylen Waddle and potentially the RBs get a boost in target share.

Dolphins QB Tua Tagovailoa failed to throw a TD in Monday night's loss to the Titans for the first time this season. He completed 70% of his passes but for just 240 yards. His 7.3 yards per attempt was his fourth-lowest mark of the season. Miami's usually machine-like offense looked out of sync right from the start of this game. C Connor Williams left early with an injury, joining LT Terron Armstead on the sidelines. Tagovailoa also lost WR Tyreek Hill for more than a quarter with an ankle injury -- and Hill was clearly at less than 100% when he eventually returned. We'll keep an eye on all of these injuries this week. Tagovailoa also has a difficult schedule to contend with the rest of the way: vs. Jets, vs. Cowboys, at Ravens. It's the toughest remaining QB schedule, according to our adjusted fantasy points allowed. Tagovailoa looks more like a low-end QB1 -- and not a must-start -- over these final three weeks.

Dolphins QB Tua Tagovailoa had a nice Week 13, with 280 yards and 2 TDs in a blowout victory over the Commanders. But that score kept him from doing more. Tagovailoa attempted just 24 passes for the game, including going a mere 6-for-9 in the second half. He got pulled with 11:23 remaining. That obviously limited the QB's fantasy scoring for the game. More worrisome, though, is the remaining schedule. Tagovailoa looks good for a Week 14 matchup with Tennessee, which remains much tougher on the run than the pass. But his final three fantasy weeks are the toughest in the league for QB scoring by a wide margin. Try to secure a platoon for partner for the final three weeks.

Dolphins QB Tua Tagovailoa posted 325 yards, 2 TDs, and 1 INT in Sunday's win over Vegas. Tua wasn't particularly sharp in this one, with one fumble and a couple of clear misfires. Still, he hit 300 yards for the fifth time this season. Other than a Week 13 matchup at Washington, Tua’s rest-of-season schedule continues to look challenging. So he’s a viable sell-high if you can find a manager desperate for QB help.

Dolphins QB Tua Tagovailoa tallied only 193 yards and 1 TD in a Week 9 loss to Kansas City. Miami fell behind 21-0 at halftime, but Tua still finished with a moderate 34 passes. His lone score went to Cedric Wilson on a nice deep pass. Late in the fourth quarter, though, Tua underthrew Wilson on what should have been a game-tying TD. “It was a miscommunication with Cedrick Wilson,” Tagovailoa said in the postgame presser. “In big time moments those things can’t happen.” Tagovailoa will look to rebound against Vegas after a Week 10 bye.

Dolphins QB Tua Tagovailoa went off for 324 yards, 3 TDs, and 1 INT in Sunday's win over New England. Tua wasn’t perfect in this one, as he threw at least one pass that should have been picked off. He also lost a fumble. Still, when you’re firing 56% of your targets at Tyreek Hill and Jaylen Waddle, good things are bound to happen. Sure enough, that duo alone combined for 15 catches, 233 yards, and 2 TDs. Tua’s remaining score went to Cedric Wilson at the goal line. Keep the young QB in lineups for a potential Week 9 shootout vs. Kansas City.

Dolphins QB Tua Tagovailoa completed 23 of 32 passes for 216 passing yards with 1 TD and INT apiece in Week 7’s loss vs. the Eagles. His 10.3 fantasy points (4-point per passing TD format) are the lowest of 2023 so far. Of course, part of these struggles can be attributed to the fact that WR Jaylen Waddle was sidelined for a decent portion of the contest with a back injury, but the strength of Philadelphia’s defense deserves credit here. Week 8’s divisional showdown vs. the Patriots should yield better results for Tagovailoa.

Dolphins QB Tua Tagovailoa was surgical in Week 3, completing 23 of 26 passes for 309 yards and 4 TDs. The Broncos missed a couple of key defenders, but they were simply dominated in this one. And that was with Tua missing Jaylen Waddle (concussion). His scores went to Tyreek Hill, Raheem Mostert, and Devon Achane. A top-3 fantasy QB on the year, Tua travels to Buffalo for Week 4.

Dolphins QB Tua Tagovailoa completed 21 of 30 passes for 249 yards with 1 TD and INT apiece in Sunday night’s win vs. the Patriots. His Week 2 stats aren’t as eye-popping as last week’s 466-yard aerial assault, though Miami had significant contributions from RB Raheem Mostert on the ground in this divisional contest. Fantasy managers can confidently start Tagovailoa again next week vs. the Broncos.

Dolphins WR Tyreek Hill started hot, snagging 11 balls for 215 yards and 2 TDs in a win over Los Angeles. His yardage marked the third-most in a season-opener in league history, per ESPN’s Adam Schefter. Hill scored from deep and in close, showcasing his extraordinary burst throughout the game. On the day, Hill saw a 33.3% target share and accounted for 46.1% of Tua Tagovailoa’s 466(!) passing yards. If Tua continues to cook, Hill will retain an overall WR1 upside for the road ahead. The upcoming schedule just isn’t a cakewalk: at New England, vs. Denver, and at Buffalo.
