All throughout 2022, Tyreek Hill has been the hype man for quarterback Tua Tagovailoa.

The Miami Dolphins wide receiver is in his quarterback, and everyone knows it from his interviews.

However, are Hill and his hype responsible for Tagovailoa’s breakout this season?

Hill Deserves Some Credit For The Quarterback’s Success

Hill has been a receiving machine for the Dolphins this season as he is on pace to pass for 2,000 yards.

Having a receiver of that caliber makes things easier for the young quarterback in Miami.

No receiver in NFL history has hit 2,000 receiving yards in a season.

But many experts doubted Hill did it with a quarterback.

While he doesn’t get a lot of touches, he does stretch the field to help his quarterback get touches with other players.

They’re part of the reason Hill is behind Tagovailoa’s newfound success in 2022.

However, the Dolphins quarterback was already fine without Hill.

All he needed was someone to help boost his already solid numbers from 2021.

Tagovailoa Was Finding Success Without The Hill

Before Hill made a splash in Miami, Tagovailoa was breaking records with the Dolphins.

He already had it for a successful fourth when Hill hit it to the moon.

However, Hill gives his other targets time to get open for touchdowns.

So the Dolphins quarterback benefits from having Hill around him.

But he already had the tools to be a successful quarterback.

Hill only reinforces the greatness within Tagovailoa.
