Skylar Thompson

27-Year-Old QuarterbackQB
Miami Dolphins
2024 Fantasy Outlook
Thompson's rookie season with the Dolphins was his most eventful, as he piloted one regular-season win and showed flashes in a 34-31 wild-card loss to Buffalo. He didn't get any playing time in 2023 after the addition of Mike White to serve as Tua Tagovailoa's top backup, but salary cap situations could mean that won't be a long-term bandaid. Thompson boasts dual-threat athletic traits and will be going into his third year of development in coach Mike McDaniel's system, so he could surprise if he gets an opportunity. Read Past Outlooks

Emergency QB for wild-card game
QBMiami Dolphins
Coach's Decision
January 13, 2024
Thompson (coach's decision) is inactive for Saturday's playoff game against Kansas City, and he will serve as Miami's emergency third quarterback for the contest.
ANALYSIS
Thompson hasn't seen any game action this year, so it's not surprising that he's inactive for the opening round of the postseason. Mike White is serving as the backup to Tua Tagovailoa for the Dolphins in the wild-card contest.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2023
2022
Thompson showed some flashes as a rookie after joining Miami as a seventh-rounder last season. In two starts, he managed a regular-season finale win over the Jets and put up a fight against the Bills in a 34-31 wild-card loss. Though Thompson carries over a unique amount of experience into Year 2 for a player in his draft slot, the Dolphins did see fit to pursue a more experienced backup in the form of Mike White to support Tua Tagovailoa. Still, Thompson's athletic traits and rookie flashes make his development is worth monitoring.
A 2022 seventh-round selection, Thompson will have the luxury of developing behind both Tua Tagovailoa and Teddy Bridgewater. The Dolphins will hope to sculpt the dual-threat passer out of Kansas State into an eventual backup.

Latest Fantasy Rumors
Likely drawing wild-card start
QBMiami Dolphins
January 11, 2023
Dolphins head coach Mike McDaniel confirmed Wednesday that Thompson is being prepped to start Sunday's wild-card road matchup against the Bills, Marcel Louis-Jacques of ESPN.com reports.
ANALYSIS
Tua Tagovailoa was already ruled out Wednesday due to the fact he remains in concussion protocol, and Teddy Bridgewater remains firmly questionable while dealing with a dislocated pinky finger and a nagging knee injury. Consequently, Thompson, who noted Wednesday that he thinks he received a good feel for a playoff atmosphere in the Dolphins' Week 18 must-win game against the Jets, is confident he's prepared to handle the intensity of a postseason road matchup if he does draw his third start of his career.
