The Dolphins plan to go deep this year with Fuller and the new WR they draft. Tua better get his arm ready and the OL had better give him the time to throw it.

Barry Jackson (Miami Herald) wrote:
Last season, Fuller averaged 3.0 yards of separation from cornerbacks, which was 63rd among NFL receivers but far better than the Dolphins’ top playmakers.

Parker’s 1.7 average yards of separation from the player covering him (on passes thrown to him) was tied with A.J. Green for worst among receivers, and Mike Gesicki’s 2.0 was worst among tight ends.

The result was that Tagovailoa threw into tight coverage (where a defender was within 1 yard of the receiver at the time of the completion or incompletion) on 20.3 percent of his throws. Among quarterbacks who made at least eight starts, only Mitch Trubisky and Joe Burrow threw into tight windows more often. Ryan Fitzpatrick was a 21.7 percent.

So Fuller will give this offense something it badly needed: a receiver who can consistently break free from cornerbacks.

I can't tell whether they are saying Fuller is good or bad in this regard. 63rd doesn't sound good at all, yet they go on to say he consistently breaks free from cornerbacks.

It looks like Fuller gives Tua 1.3 extra yards per pass, so, I would say that is good. So, yeah, there isn't anything "wow" about 63rd, but it does give the Dolphins the deep ball again instead of the deep jump ball.
