The Dolphins winning the AFC East just a year after many people thought they were in danger of going 0-16 early in the 2019 NFL season would be quite the storyline. It’s not as unrealistic as it appears on the surface, however. The quarterback position will continue to remain the biggest question mark in Miami, but even if it’s Ryan Fitzpatrick manning the ship again, is that really the worst thing in the world? Over the past two seasons, Fitzpatrick ranks 12th among 32 qualifying quarterbacks in PFF grade. He carried the worst roster in the NFL to a 5-11 record with strong play down the stretch, and he does things like this.
Of course, it could be someone other than Fitzmagic, with the biggest potential name being none other than Tua Tagovailoa out of Alabama. The Dolphins have a treasure trove of draft capital and the most cap space in the league to dramatically improve their roster this offseason, and the AFC East could be ripe for a new reign if Tom Brady leaves the Patriots and expected regression hits Josh Allen and the Buffalo Bills. That potential weakening division and the building blocks for a swift rebuild in Miami makes the Dolphins an intriguing worst-to-first candidate.
