Former Jag is the frontrunner in Dolphins's QB battle
|David Garrard got the first shot as Dolphins quarterback during minicamp and it seems that wasn’t just because Garrard comes before Moore and Tannehill in alphabetical order. On SportsCenter Friday, via Rotoworld, Adam Schefter reported that Garrard’s play this spring has put him ahead of Matt Moore and Ryan Tannehill as the team heads toward training camp. “The more you hear, the more it sounds like David Garrard has really taken this opportunity to emerge as the favorite to be the starting quarterback down in Miami,” said Schefter. “Very impressive, adept, good footwork. Matt Moore’s been good, Ryan Tannehill’s been good, but David Garrard has looked the most comfortable of any of the quarterbacks.” (NBC Sports)|
FF Today's Take: The 34-year-old isn't going to win you your fantasy league but he could be a smart late round pick to store on your bench for bye weeks, especially if you're in a league that starts more than one quarterback. Garrard had four straight respectable seasons between 2007 and 2010, over which he averaged 18 touchdown passes to just 10 interceptions each year. During this time he also averaged 215 passing yards per game with nearly 20 more yards added on the ground.
