3. Tua Tagovailoa, Dolphins

Checking in at number three is a one-time MVP candidate last season, Tua Tagovailoa of the Miami Dolphins. Last season was an obviously-scary one for Tua, as he battled multiple concussions that provided fans with a couple terrifying moments.

Now healthy, and having changed up his offseason regimen, Tua is looking to continue the success he began to experience last year under Mike McDaniel. In 13 games last year, Tua threw for over 3500 yards, 25 touchdowns and eight interceptions. The Dolphins ranked in the top five passing offenses when he was under center, and they very well could do it again this year.

With the speed and shiftiness of weapons like Tyreek Hill and Jaylen Waddle, Tua's work has been made fairly easy on many occasions. All he has to do is hit the open guy, and chances are, one of those two are open on a regular basis. From there, they do the rest.

If Tua stays healthy, he could once again enter the MVP conversation. The problem is, so could these next two quarterbacks who also sit within the division.
