Fantasy Football analysis: Dolphins QBs Tua Tagovailoa, Jacoby Brissett
Officially questionable with a finger injury, Tagovailoa could again find himself serving as the “emergency” backup quarterback. Tagovailoa avoided the inactive list last week in a similar capacity, leaving the starting role to Brissett. The Dolphins have not revealed how long the injury will keep the No. 5 overall pick from the 2020 NFL Draft effectively sidelined, but he doesn’t seem likely to play against the Ravens.
As for Brissett, the journeyman signal-caller comes off a rough outing against the Houston Texans a week ago. Brissett completed just over 60% of his passes for 244 yards, a touchdown, and three total turnovers. The outlook doesn’t seem much better against the Ravens who, despite some health issues of their own, should fare better than Houston.
Fantasy Start/Sit Recommendation
Sit Tua Tagovailoa and Jacoby Brissett.
