Tua Tagovailoa, QB (MIA)

Leader of reloaded offense

Tagovailoa is positioned to lead a revamped Dolphins offense in the 2022 season, with Miami most recently having acquired six-time Pro Bowl wideout Tyreek Hill from the Chiefs on Wednesday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

The Dolphins will surrender significant draft capital in exchange for Hill, giving up five picks headlined by 2022 first-round and second-round selections. Even so, the pairing of Hill with 2021 rookie standout Jaylen Waddle can't be overstated. Heading into what looks like a make-or-break Year 3 campaign, Tagovailoa will not only have the benefit of an improved receiving corps that also returns Mike Gesicki and DeVante Parker, but he'll also get significant upgrades to his offensive line following the offseason pickups of left tackle Terron Armstead (knee) and left guard Connor Williams in free agency. Additionally, head coach Mike McDaniel could have a chance to finally provide Tagovailoa with a rushing game to rely on, given his success in San Francisco and the arrivals of Chase Edmonds and Raheem Mostert (knee). The flip side, of course, is that if Tagovailoa fails to make a leap forward in spite of all the offensive upgrades, he could quickly face pressure from new backup Teddy Bridgewater (concussion) for the starting job.
