How Many Games will the Dolphins win in 2019?

The Miami Dolphins appear to be on full-on tank mode ahead of the 2019 season. Leading up to Week 1, the Dolphins have traded away Laramey Tunsil, Kenny Stills, and Kiko Alonso for a massive amount of draft picks and LB Vince Biegel. It appears that Miami is throwing in the towel before they even appear in a regular-season game. With Ryan Fitzpatrick named as the starting QB and Josh Rosen seemingly an afterthought, the Dolphins not only will be rolling with a journeyman QB and a seriously downgraded offensive line, they traded away arguably their top offensive weapon in Stills. Teams will be able to load up the box and stop the tandem of underwhelming RBs in Ballage and Drake, forcing Fitzpatrick to unload passes to a receiving corps that includes, Davante Parker, Albert Wilson, and Preston Williams. On the defensive side of the ball, The Dolphins have traded their leading tackler from a year ago and a man that only missed 2 games over 2 years with the team, Kiko Alonso. His replacement? That would be Vince Biegel. A linebacker entering his 3rd season in the league and now is on his 3rd different team. Biegel has 10 career solo tackles, a mark that Alonso has nearly eclipsed multiple times in his career in singular games. 

The Dolphins currently have the best odds (+300 at Bovada) to finish the 2019 season with the worst overall record. How many games do you think the Dolphins will win this year?
