After a very busy offseason, the Miami Dolphins must come into this new season full of vigour and with optimism that this could be the year that they can make a serious challenge for the playoffs.

Much has been made of late of QB Tua Tagavailoa not having quality receivers, well now with Jaylen Waddle and Tyreek Hill in tandem, that is no longer the case and the Dolphins should be markedly better for it, especially having signed the best available free agent in left tackle Terron Armstead.

Chasing down the Bills won’t be an easy task but the Fins fans should have their eyes set on at least second place in the AFC East this year, but it will be a close battle.

Miami Dolphins – Strengths

  • Superb depth at Wide Receiver gives the Dolphins one of the best receiving corps in the AFC with Jaylen Waddle and Tyreek Hill likely to cause defenses major problems.
  • Terron Armstead coming in at Left Tackle will give quarterback Tua Tagavailoa more protection and should allow the quarterback to eliminate some of his sketchy play over the last few years.
  • Dolphins Defense is solid especially in the secondary.

Miami Dolphins – Weaknesses

  • Tagavailoa needs to be much more consistent than he has been over the last few years ans there’s not much evidence as yet that he can do that.
  • They face the Bills twice this season and that could make qualifying from this division, alongside the Pats and Jets tough.
  • Dolphins have been very streaky. They need to find greater consistency as a team.

Season Predictions & Top Betting Picks For The Miami Dolphins

  • Regular Season Record Prediction – 10-7
  • Playoffs? – No
  • Super Bowl Winning Odds – 35/1
  • Conference Champion Odds – 18/1
  • Divisional Winner Odds – 4/1
  • Best Player on Offense – Tyreek Hill WR
  • Best Player on Defense – Xavien Howard CB
  • Best Rookie – Channing Tindall LILB
  • Surprise Of The Season – Miami to improve to the strong second placed team in the AFC North, but to miss out on the playoffs by a single game.

The signing of WR Tyreek Hill to line up opposite WR Jaylen Waddle and re-signing TE Mike Gesicki gives the Dolphins their most potent offense in many years. With LT Terron Armstead amongst the best left tackles also snapped up, now is the time for the Fins to challenge the Bills and usurp the Pats in the East.
