Projected Win Total

The Dolphins’ over/under currently sits at 5.0, after they went 7-9 last season. Miami is tied with Arizona at the lowest projected win total. They will likely give Josh Rosen as much experience as possible, which looks to be bad, but it will determine if they need to explore a new option at quarterback next offseason. Either way, 2019 will likely be a disaster, with the Dolphins having the least talent in the NFL.

 

Strength of Schedule

SOS is measured by calculating the fantasy points allowed by each team’s opponents to determine who has the easiest and most difficult fantasy schedules (rank #1 has the easiest schedule).

QB: 24th
RB: 13th
WR: 26th
TE: 27th

 

Passing Game

QB: Josh Rosen, Ryan Fitzpatrick
WR: Kenny Stills, Jakeem Grant
WR: DeVante Parker, Brice Butler
WR: Albert Wilson, Preston Williams
TE: Mike Gesicki, Dwayne Allen

Out goes Ryan Tannehill, in comes the combination of Josh Rosen and Ryan Fitzpatrick. We all know who the better quarterback is, but the Dolphins don’t exactly have much to play for this season. Neither quarterbacks are draftable, but we may see some FitzMagic, if given the chance. In terms of receivers on this team, second-year tight end Mike Gesicki is going undrafted, but possesses high upside at the position. Kenny Stills is still the top wide receiver, but is currently going as WR64, two spots behind the always disappointing DeVante Parker. It may be easiest to stay way from the Dolphins passing game for 2019.

 

Running Game

RB: Kenyan Drake, Kalen Ballage, Myles Gaskin
2018 OL Run Rank: 14th

This Dolphins offense is essentially running it back, aside from getting a worse offensive coach, a bigger question mark at quarterback and losing Frank Gore. It seems like a relatively safe assumption that Kenyan Drake and Kalen Ballage will split the 168 total touches Gore leaves behind. Getting most of his fantasy points through the air, Drake finished as RB14 last season in PPR. He’s currently being drafted ten spots lower, at RB24. The hype seems to be nonexistent around Drake because of the team being worse, but it will actually mean more opportunity in the passing game. The fantasy community isn’t any more optimistic on Ballage, who has an ADP of RB56.
