Miami Dolphins announced Ryan Fitzpatrick will start for Week 5 against the 49ers. As expected. Coach Brian Flores met with rookie Tua Tagovailoa Monday night and decided to stay the course for one more week. Ryan Fitzpatrick has finished as QB1 for fantasy in 3-of-4 games this year but the Dolphins are still just 1-3 and looking to pass the torch soon. Expect Tua to get the nod the moment Flores believes the rookie isn't in any physical danger behind Miami's Swiss cheese o-line.

Jimmy Garoppolo (ankle) practiced Thursday. That makes two straight practices for Jimmy G, who suffered a high ankle sprain in Week 2 against the Jets. ESPN's Nick Wagoner said in a tweet that Garoppolo "seemed to be moving around well during individual drills" during Thursday's practice. Garoppolo is a solid start in 2-QB and superflex leagues this week against the Dolphins. Miami's banged up secondary has give up the fourth most passing yards this season.
