Navy Blue

Head Coach- Adam Gase

QB – Ryan Tannehill

WR/RB/TE 1 – Brandon Marshall

WR/RB/TE 2 – Lamar Miller

OL – Brandon Albert

DL – Randy Starks

LB – Channing Crowder

DB 1- Reshad Jones

DB 2 – Brent Grimes

K/P – Jason Sanders

Returner – Davone Bess

This team features the best quarterback, wide receiver, safety, and kicker of any team on this list. Tannehill and Marshall are the offensive duos that Dolphins fans were robbed of and each of Navy Blue’s team defensive players all were extremely underrated during their playing days.


Head Coach- Brian Flores

QB – Matt Moore

WR/RB/TE 1 – Reggie Bush

WR/RB/TE 2 – Mike Gesicki

OL – Jake Long

DL – Jason Taylor

LB – Kyle Van Noy

DB 1- Xavien Howard

DB 2 – Minkah Fitzpatrick

K/P – Dan Carpenter

Returner – Jakeem Grant

A defensive team for a defensive-minded head coach. Not only does Flores get the best defensive player that has ever worn a Dolphins uniform, but he also gets an elite corner and two players that work well in his system. Reggie Bush and Mike Gesicki will also be able to perform even with Matt Moore at quarterback.


Head Coach- Tony Sparono

QB – Tua Tagovailoa

WR/RB/TE 1 – Ronnie Brown

WR/RB/TE 2 – Jaylen Waddle

OL – Richie Incognito

DL – Ndamukong Suh

LB – Karlos Dansby

DB 1- Yeremiah Bell

DB 2 – Sean Smith

K/P – Cody Parkey

Returner – Ted Ginn Jr.

Tony Sparano’s team is defined by speed and a little bit of a mean streak. Richie Incognito, Karlos Dansby and Ndamukong Suh in the trenches will give this team a nasty edge, while Ronnie Brown and Jaylen Waddle should give Tua Tagovailoa no problem playing his usual game.

Aqua Green

Head Coach- Joe Philbin

QB – Chad Pennington

WR/RB/TE 1 – Jarvis Landry

WR/RB/TE 2 – Brain Hartline

OL – Mike Pouncey

DL – Cameron Wake

LB – Jerome Baker

DB 1- Vontae Davis

DB 2 – Jevon Holland

K/P – Brandon Fields

Returner – Marcus Thigpen

Another offensive coach working with a fan favorite quarterback and two weapons who can each get 100 receptions in a season. This team may not have the elite athletic talent you’d like on offense, but they get the job done. The defense does have players that can play all over the field in multiple roles.
