Shark Bites

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.

Recent Shark Bites

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.
