Well, as a Dolphins fan who saw how inept our passing game was last year and also sees that we have new QBs, this is probably the least interesting and disappointing stat to go through. Still, I'll post it. I put the Cardinals and Bucs offenses in this list since we now have their QBs.

8. Tampa Bay Buccaneers
The Buccaneers’ passing offense rode a roller coaster manned by two of the most volatile quarterbacks in the NFL last season – Jameis Winston and Ryan Fitzpatrick – but all things considered, there were more ups than downs in the passing game. The Bucs finished eighth in the league in EPA/pass play, ahead of several notable offenses. Looking at all quarterbacks with 200 or more attempts, Winston and Fitzpatrick finished second and third, respectively, in average depth of target. That likely will not change in Tampa Bay heading into next season with head coach Bruce Arians, and the Bucs have the receiving weapons to capitalize in Mike Evans, Chris Godwin and O.J. Howard. Godwin finished with the lowest receiving grade of that group (79.6) which was still good for the 29th-best grade among qualifying tight ends and wide receivers.

29. Miami Dolphins
The Dolphins’ options at quarterback consisted of Ryan Tannehill and Brock Osweiler. Their ranks in overall grades among 38 quarterbacks with at least 200 dropbacks were 38th and 35th, respectively. If your quarterbacks are performing at a level that low, it should come as no surprise to find yourself near the bottom of teams in EPA per pass play. They addressed the position this offseason by bringing in the bearded-wonder and journeyman Ryan Fitzpatrick and trading for the second-year quarterback Josh Rosen, who disappointed in his first season with Arizona albeit in less than ideal conditions. Even with the change under center, it remains to be seen if the Dolphins will be able to improve next season with a wide receiver corps consisting of DeVante Parker, Kenny Stills and Albert Wilson.

32. Arizona Cardinals
The Cardinals’ offense was a disaster last season, and that’s putting it nicely. Rookie quarterback Josh Rosen struggled mightily behind a pass-blocking unit that allowed pressure at the NFL’s second-highest rate, and outside of the ever-reliable Larry Fitzgerald and some promise from rookie Christian Kirk, the playmaker department was severely lacking. That being said, the passing attack was overhauled this offseason with the additions quarterback Kyler Murray and the two draft-eligible wide receivers with the most deep receiving yards in college football last season (Andy Isabella and Hakeem Butler). Expect the Cardinals to rise in the ranks in 2019.
