Miami Benches Fitzpatrick for Tua
Big news out of Miami, where Adam Schefter reports that Miami will be benching Ryan Fitzpatrick in favor of rookie Tua Tagovailoa after their Week 7 bye. I never would have expected to say this before the season, but... this is a mistake. Miami currently has the best DVOA in the AFC East and we're giving them a 34.5% chance of making the playoffs in our latest simulation. The Dolphins are absolutely still in it, Fitzpatrick has been playing well, and if they want to make the playoffs this is a strange time to pull him for the rookie.
Would they now consider trading him to another team? Would Chicago or Dallas consider pulling the trigger on that deal?
