Dolphins Fantasy Outlooks
Chris Raybon breaks down offensive coordinator Chad O’Shea’s playcalling tendencies to forecast who will benefit most.
- From the moment he was hired, Brian Flores stated that there would be a competition for carries between Kenyan Drake and Kalen Ballage. That shouldn’t come as a surprise; Flores has spent the better part of the last two decades watching Bill Belichick rotate backs and win championships. Drake spent 14.4% of his routes lined up either in the slot or out wide last season and is too valuable a weapon to be smashing into the tackle box 15-20 times a game. In an ideal world, Drake and Ballage would be used in a similar manner to the tandem of Sony Michel and James White last season.
- O’Shea, the former wide receivers coach of the Patriots, brings with him an Erhardt-Perkins scheme, which allows the skill-position players to not have to make any on-sight adjustments, and thus, hopefully play faster, while relying upon the quarterback to make the correct pre- and post-snap reads. This favors Ryan Fitzpatrick over Josh Rosen, and makes Rosen a prime target for D/STs should he get the nod.
- Fitzpatrick’s superior processing ability would enable him to get the ball downfield to receivers like Kenny Stills, DeVante Parker, and Preston Williams. Fitzpatrick has targeted wide receivers on 70% of his passes over the past five seasons, while Rosen went to the position only 58% as a rookie in 2018.
