Yahoo Fantasy analyst Liz Loza takes a deeper look at the Dolpgins receiving core and decides who could be a great value for fantasy owners in 2021
LIZ LOZA: Tua Tagovailoa is entering the 2021 season surrounded by a formidable stable of pass-catching weapons. So from a fantasy point of view, which of these receivers offers the most upside?
Well, first, let's talk about the receivers he has at his disposal. Number one, DeVante Parker, a contested catch specialist. Now Tua himself admitted that the throwing windows he was used to in college got a little bit tighter at the NFL level, which helps to explain the struggles this duo had in connecting in 2020.
Next, you've got Mike Gesicki. You know what he is, right? A weapon in the short to intermediate passing game, fine.
How about Will Fuller? This is a new addition. Veteran speedster. 99th percentile speed, in fact. Certainly knows how to create a cushion. That'll help Tua. But hasn't managed to stay on the field for 16 games in his entire five-year career. Will be suspended in Week 1. And is new to the squad.
Then we've got Jaylen Waddle. Rookie, sure. Unknown to the Dolphins, yes. Not unknown to Tua. Also a speedster. Also knows how to separate. Also an ace ball tracker. Also will likely make Tua look good, because he certainly has in the past. And, here's the kicker, also being drafted five to seven rounds after Will Fuller. So if you're looking for upside. As it relates to ADP, give me the rookie.
