2020:   The Dolphins were expected to be perhaps the worst team in the NFL last year,  but head coach Brian Flores did a remarkable job, leading the 'way to a 5-11  record.  The 'Phins were active in free agency, adding some actual talent to a D that could be top half of the league this year.  The biggest signing may have been RB Jordan Howard, who could post a breakout year.  Ideally Ryan Fitzpatrick will lead the way in 2020.  Miami is still a year or two away, but the foundation is building and the future is bright.  A .500 season would be a successful year, but that is unlikely..... but then so were 5 wins in 2019.
