Miami Dolphins Week 2 Offensive Grades

Wide Receivers: A+

Much of the credit for the improbable comeback has been given to Tua Tagovailoa, and deservedly so, given his poise and performance during the wild fourth quarter on Sunday. But much of it would not have been possible had the Dolphins not had the services of Tyreek Hill and Jaylen Waddle.

The duo represents the first game-changing playmakers that Miami has had since Ricky Williams was in their backfield, and they had a historic day against the Ravens. They became the first teammates in the Super Bowl Era to amass 170+ yards on 11+ catches and have two touchdowns, each. Hill’s pair of fourth-quarter scores were the exact kinds of plays that fans had envisioned when he was acquired in the offseason, as he cooked Baltimore defenders for multiple touchdowns. He finished with 190 yards and 2 scores on 11 catches.

Waddle had a consistent day and was targeted early and often. He, too, had 11 catches and 2 touchdowns and put up 171 yards himself. He caught the first touchdown of the game and the final one and had huge, game-altering plays in between. Talk about the perfect compliment to the superstar on the other side of the field.

While we can spend all week wondering if Tua is going to back up his impressive performance, we can sleep well knowing that Hill and Waddle are going to be the ones assisting in his efforts.

It doesn’t even matter that the rest of the unit caught just 3 passes for 11 yards. A+ for the guys out wide.
