,Osweiler threw for 1247 yards, six touchdowns and four interceptions during the 2018 season. Osweiler did not throw a pass during Miami's final six games of the season due to the return of starting quarterback Ryan Tannehill. The 28-year-old was thrust into the starting lineup from Week 6 to Week 10, leading the Dolphins to two wins and three losses during that stretch, while completing 63 percent of his passing attempts. After throwing for 380 yards and three touchdowns in his first start, a Week 6 win over the Bears, Osweiler achieved mixed results through the next four games. Once thought of as a potential franchise quarterback, Osweiler looked much more serviceable playing a backup role during the 2018 season. With Osweiler set to become a free agent this offseason, if Miami doesn't chose to bring him back, it seems likely that he'll land a No. 2 job elsewhere in the league.
Osweiler (back) is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Jaguars, the Adam Beasley of the Miami Herald reports. Osweiler was a late addition to the Dolphins' Week 16 injury report, but he'll be available to back up Ryan Tannehill on Sunday, while fellow QB David Fales is among the team's inactives.
Osweiler completed 23 of 37 pass attempts for 213 yards and one interception during Sunday's 31-12 loss to the Packers. He also lost a fumble. Osweiler generated just one play longer than 25 yards on the day as he finished averaging an underwhelming 5.8 yards per attempt. He lost a fumble on the opening drive as his team moved into Green Bay territory and threw an interception in his own end in the third quarter. Osweiler is averaging just 208 passing yards per game over the last four and hasn't thrown a touchdown in any of his last three. He'll enjoy a much-needed bye next week before facing the Colts in Week 12.
Osweiler seems likely to get another start Week 10 in Green Bay, Cameron Wolfe of ESPN.com reports. Osweiler was essentially a non-factor in Sunday's 13-6 win over the Jets, completing 15 of 24 pass attempts for 139 yards. His overall performance the past four weeks has been thoroughly mediocre, but he's at least kept Miami in the wild-card race while Ryan Tannehill recovers from a shoulder injury. It makes sense for the team to keep Tannehill out until after a Week 11 bye, but coach Adam Gase said he won't make an announcement until Wednesday.
Osweiler completed 15 of 24 pass attempts for 139 yards against the Jets. He also carried three times for four yards in the 13-6 win. Osweiler completed 63 percent of his pass attempts, but most of them went for short gains as he finished with an average of 5.8 yards per attempt. He faced treacherous field conditions and a solid Jets defense on the day, both of which factored into his lowest yardage output of the season. On a positive note, Osweiler went without a turnover for the first time this season, and it was his second straight game without an interception. Even though he'll be forced to throw often in Week 11 against the Packers, Osweiler doesn't warrant a starting spot on many fantasy rosters.
