Every year we give our premium content members a team-by-team, player-by-player look at the NFL season that was. The coverage will be in-depth, but because the Dynasty Capsule series begins immediately after the season, we won’t use it to discuss free agency or the draft. Come see us in early May once Mr. Irrelevant is off the board for another 32-article series giving you the same detailed discussion you’ll see below.
Buckle up dynasty fans, because you’re about to be reminded why our motto is, “There is no off-season.”
The Dolphins are poised to potentially be a good source of dynasty assets for years to come. After finishing this past season with just five wins, Miami earned a high first round pick to pair with the other two they had acquired via trade. Overall Chris Grier and the front office staff have 13 picks in April. They also entered the 2019 season as the youngest team in the league with an average age of 25.2 years old. Add all of this to some exciting young skill position players such as Preston Williams and you can see the future is bright in South Beach.
Ryan Fitzpatrick (ADP: N/A)
As evidenced by early ADP data, Fitzpatrick is not holding much weight in startup leagues. The journeyman finished as the QB17 in 2019 despite sharing time with Josh Rosen during several games and sitting out yet another while the Dolphins experimented at the position. With one of the top quarterback prospects likely to be selected by Miami in the first round of the draft, it is difficult to predict how the position will look next season.
A look at the DLF Trade Finder shows that there is still some value here. Browsing through some recent trades, a third-round pick can be had in return, so it would be wise to explore all options before simply cutting bait with the signal caller. There is also some potential for him to start in 2020 while a rookie learns the ropes in the league, making the Harvard grad worthy of a roster spot as a bye week fill in or a backup with high end potential.
