Players you want: Anyone in Miami

The Miami Dolphins are going to win many people fantasy championships this year and the team itself might win much more. Head coach Mike McDaniel absolutely has something here and he unleashed it on the Denver Broncos on Sunday to the tune of 70 points.


Many of these Dolphins players, for whatever reason, are often overlooked but if the season ended today, Tua Tagovailoa would be the league MVP. He's a great fantasy QB to have right now because this offense, which might be the fastest in the history of the league, is not slowing down.

Tyreek Hill will be a monster week in and week out. Jaylen Waddle is the best No. 2 WR in the NFL. Raheem Mostert is a fantastic fantasy option at RB and De'Von Achane, the rookie, who so many people want to knock due to his size, put on an absolute show against the Broncos.

Get as many of these guys as you are able to round up.

Player you don't: Justin Fields

Justin Fields, rightfully, had a lot of hype behind him this offseason. But the first three games of the 2023 season have been a disaster. If he is your starting fantasy QB, almost any option is going to be better going forward.

Fields still has the ability to make plays with his legs and that is why he will still be inserted into lineups. But things are not going to get better soon. It's a bad football team that could end up having the No. 1 pick in next year's draft, and he is going to hurt you with bad numbers and turnovers.

This weekend, in one league, I had the choice between him and Jordan Love. I knew I should have played Love, but I gave Fields one more change. That won't happen again.
