It's good to hear positive feedback from teammates, but Tannehill will most likely be throwing short and intermediate passes this year as the Dolphins brought in short range receivers and shipped out deep threat Mike Wallace. (Source: Miami Herald)

Fantasy Impact: Even though the deep threat is gone Tannehill is a top-ten quarterback for 2015.

Coach Joe Philbin said Tannehill has had a good offseason, while adding new concepts and reinforcing others. They especially want improvement from him while in the red-zone, where the team was in the bottom-third of the league in production last year. (Source: ESPN)

Fantasy Impact: With the resources the Dolphins now have, it's easy to envision Tannehill as a high-floor QB1.


By Jeffrey Lee Colavecchio, Dolphins Correspondent, Mon, May 18th 6:27pm EDT

“Signing Ryan to this deal is important to our franchise,” added Dolphins General Manager Dennis Hickey. “He is a proven quarterback in this league that combines a talented skillset with work ethic, passion, toughness, and a team first mentality. We are committed and believe in Ryan as our quarterback for the long-term and we are excited to be able to sign him to this extension." (Source: MiamiDolphins.com)

Fantasy Impact: The Dolphins re-signed their quarterback for six years, $95 million, making him the fifth highest-paid QB in the league. Tannehill will continue to build and grow in the Lazor offense so this actually could turn out to be a bargain in the long run. Draft him with confidence. He will rack up a ton of numbers, and with the new red-zone threats, I predict 35 passing TD's!

According to Schefter, Tannehill received a six-year $96 million extension with 45 million guaranteed. (Source: Adam Schefter on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: This move was expected and signals the Dolphins' belief that Ryan Tannehill is the franchise QB. Tannehill was a good fantasy QB last year and will look to surprise even more this year with a new array of weapons.

The Miami Dolphins signed former Arizona State offensive lineman, Jamil Douglas, to his rookie contract. Miami chose Jamil in the fourth round of the 2015 NFL Draft. (Source: Palm Beach Post)

Fantasy Impact: The offensive line was an area of concern last season for Miami. Tannehill's expected rise in fantasy value doesn't happen unless the line steps up to protect him better this season. Douglas can play either guard or tackle and should have a chance to compete to help upgrade the line.


By Brian Ruiz, Dolphins Correspondent, Tue, May 5th 5:29pm EDT

Following the NFL draft and during the offseason the Dolphins came away with a few new weapons for the emerging QB. Tannehill is coming off a quiet but good season in which he will look to improve on with two new red zone targets and a tough running, pass-catching back.

Fantasy Impact: Tannehill is set to be a low-end QB1 when he gets picked in redraft leagues. He is a great candidate to make the leap to an every week starter with a wide array of targets.


By Brian Ruiz, Dolphins Correspondent, Mon, Apr 20th 6:31pm EDT

Tannehill has a very different receiving group after losing four of his pass catchers from last year. Apparently Tannehill has been attempting to combat this by working with his receivers twice a week for the past month. (Source: Andrew Abramson via Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Tannehill struggled to create timing with former receiver Mike Wallace. Hopefully working with a rebuilt corps will help avoid a similar situation. Tannehill will likely be a low-end QB1 that could end up being a viable late-round starter.


By Jeffrey Lee Colavecchio, Dolphins Correspondent, Mon, Dec 29th 12:17pm EST

QB Ryan Tannehill’s 259 passing yards improved his season total to 4,045, establishing a new career high. Tannehill finished the season with 4,045 passing yards, joining Dan Marino as the only quarterbacks in franchise history to surpass 4,000 yards in a season. (Source: Miamidolphins.com)

Fantasy Impact: A few of Tannehill's deep shots in the first half were caught, but could have been TDs if put in better spots. Once Mike Wallace removed himself from the game at half there was no threat of a deep ball for the Dolphins, the Jets defense were able to crowd the line and cover up the short to intermediate routes. We are confident that GM Dennis Hickey will add more weapons for Tannehill to work with in 2015 and will also have another year in the "Lazor" system to develop. We view Tannehill's FF potential as a borderline QB1 going into next years draft.


By Jeffrey Lee Colavecchio, Dolphins Correspondent, Sun, Dec 21st 8:45pm EST

QB Ryan Tannehill completed 35-of-47 passes for 396 yards, four touchdowns and one interception. Tannehill’s 118.8 passer rating was the 10th time in his career that he surpassed the 100.0 passer rating mark. His four touchdown passes today were a career high and the most by a Dolphins quarterback since Dan Marino threw four touchdown passes vs. the Denver Broncos on Dec. 21, 1998. (Source: Miamidolphins.com)

Fantasy Impact: Impressive game by Tannehill today against an average Minnesota defensive unit. Charles Clay was open consistently and Mike Wallace also made some plays for his quarterback. Precisely executing the offense in the fourth quarter and in the redzone made it a great game for the offense. All of the short passes add up to big time FF value in the future for the signal caller of this offense.


By Jeffrey Lee Colavecchio, Dolphins Correspondent, Sun, Dec 14th 7:54pm EST

QB Ryan Tannehill completed 29-of-47 passes for 346 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions. His 346 passing yards were the second-most of his career and the seventh time he has surpassed 300 passing yards. Additionally, his seven 300-yard passing games are tied with QB Chad Henne for the second most career games with 300 passing yards in franchise history. (Source: Miamidolphins.com)

Fantasy Impact: Overall the offense was inconsistent in its execution, quarterback included. Wallace made a ridiculous one-handed catch, that had to be reviewed to get it right, which would be the only TD for Tannehill today. This type of game is Tannehill's floor in FF, unfortunately his ceiling is not much higher.


By Jeffrey Lee Colavecchio, Dolphins Correspondent, Sun, Dec 7th 6:33pm EST

QB Ryan Tannehill completed 10-of-14 passes for 88 yards and a touchdown in the first half, good for a 111.6 passer rating. His 111.6 passer rating in the first half was the sixth highest in the first half of a game in his career. (Source: Miamidolphins.com)

Fantasy Impact: Tannehill finished 23-33 for 227 yards and one touchdown in the loss to Baltimore. The offense experienced some very bad luck in the officiating department this afternoon, having one long completion called back due to an illegal lineman downfield and another fumble recovery overturned. Tannehill did miss a wide open Wallace on a corner route in the endzone, but who can blame him since he was under pressure all day. New England doesn't have the pass rush that Baltimore does, but I do not advise using Tannehill in your playoffs.


By Jeffrey Lee Colavecchio, Dolphins Correspondent, Wed, Dec 3rd 5:58pm EST

QB Ryan Tannehill extended his consecutive games streak with at least a 70 percent completion rate for the fifth-straight game (71.4 percent tonight). He is the only quarterback in the franchise to accomplish that feat and was the only player to do it in four-straight games. After Monday night's performance, Tannehill is the only player in the NFL this season to record five consecutive games with a 70-or-more completion percentage. Additionally, his seven games completing 70-or-more percent of his passes this season are tied for the most in the NFL this season with Saints QB Drew Brees and Chargers QB Philip Rivers. (Source: Miamidolphins.com)

Fantasy Impact: Tannehill came through for his team when he needed to, but unfortunately he probably didn't come through for your FF team. With no touchdown passes or runs from the QB Miami was lucky to leave New York with a win. His completion percentage is impressive and bodes well for the offense, his progress, and interested FF prognosticators. Baltimore has been giving up some big plays as of late, so next Sunday, Tannehill and Co. will get back on track at the friendly confines of Sunlife stadium to the tune of 250 yards passing, two touchdown passes, and one rushing touchdown.


By Reginald James, Dolphins Correspondent, Tue, Dec 2nd 3:40pm EST

Tannehill was a little less gracious with the ball in the win over the Jets. 62 percent of his targets went to Mike Wallace and Jarvis Landry. He completed 71.4 percent of his passes which made him the first quarterback this season with five consecutive games with a completion percentage of 70 or better. (Source: Dolphins.com)

Fantasy Impact: Monday was a drop from the performance in Denver. Tannehill was expected to have a better game against the weak Jets secondary making him a popular play in most leagues especially weekly leagues. He played a steady game. The one interception he threw started as a poorly thrown ball that was then scooped up into the air by Lamar Miller. Tannehill is a matchup play if you have the luxury to use him as such.


By Jeffrey Lee Colavecchio, Dolphins Correspondent, Sun, Nov 30th 10:19am EST

Tight end Charles Clay, cornerback Cortland Finnegan and guard Nate Garner all were listed as doubtful Saturday for the game against the New York Jets. Clay (hamstring/knee), Finnegan (ankle) and Garner (illness) all missed practice for a second consecutive day. (Source: Miamidolphins.com)

Fantasy Impact: Dolphins Quarterback Ryan Tannehill played very well without TE Charles Clay against last week's opponent, it looks like he will have to do so again versus the Jets. I am sure Lazor and company will have another good game plan in place to get his quarterback going, but Clay is a unique talent and will be missed if he can't go. The other skill positions will get a bump up in looks because of Clay's absence, but Tannehill is still in the top ten in his position this week.


By Reginald James, Dolphins Correspondent, Mon, Nov 24th 3:41pm EST

Tannehill completed 26-of-36 passes (72.2 percent) for 228 yards, threw three touchdowns and ran for one more. Great day for Tannehill and the offense, while not so much for the Dolphins' defense who couldn't contain the Broncos. Tannehill's rushing touchdown was his first of the year.

Fantasy Impact: Tannehill looked good and ran the offense well. He did have one interception, which occurred after a bullet glanced off Jarvis Landry's hands into the air. The upcoming matchup against the Jets looks to make Tannehill a QB1 start this week.


By Jeffrey Lee Colavecchio, Dolphins Correspondent, Mon, Nov 24th 3:24pm EST

QB Ryan Tannehill finished the game by completing 26-of-36 passes (72.2 percent) for 228 yard, three touchdowns and one interception, good for a 104.9 passer rating. His three touchdowns tied a career high. (Source: Miamidolphins.com)

Fantasy Impact: Ryan Tannehill was accurate, decisive and elusive on Sunday versus the Broncos. Kudos to OC Bill Lazor for accentuating his QB's skill set, but it really was all #17. He was on fire during the first half completing 11-14 passes with one TD pass and one TD run. The defense could not stop the Broncos' run game Sunday which limited the Dolphins' second half opportunities, but Tannehill did manage one more touchdown drive to make it interesting. The Dolphins have some plus matchups coming up against the Jets (x2), Ravens, and Vikings, Tannehill has ascended into the QB1 conversation.


By Jeffrey Lee Colavecchio, Dolphins Correspondent, Fri, Nov 21st 6:09pm EST

Denver is only 18th in pass defense, but that’s based on yards and opponents often have racked up yardage while trying to play catch-up. A better indicator of Denver’s pass defense is the fact the Broncos rank second in yards allowed per pass play. Von Miller and DeMarcus Ware are among the NFL sack leaders with 10 and nine, respectively, and Denver is giving up only 3.3 yards per rushing attempt. (Source: Miamidolphins.com)

Fantasy Impact: While Mr. Tannehill has been solid in six of his last seven games, we do not advise using number seventeen versus Denver. The game plan against a Peyton Manning led team is to play a "ball control" style of offense and move the chains. We see Tannehill managing the offensive game plan on his way to modest numbers. Unfortunately, left tackle Brandon Albert cannot be replaced and the QB will face pressure if playing from behind.


By Reginald James, Dolphins Correspondent, Thu, Nov 20th 12:28am EST

Tannehill is dealing with a right shoulder injury. He is ranked 28th in passing yards per attempt (6.67 yards), 23rd in passing yards per game (235), and has rushed for 261 yards. (Source: Dolphins.com)

Fantasy Impact: He's been playing with the injury so there shouldn't be a problem with him making the start against Denver on Sunday.


By Reginald James, Dolphins Correspondent, Fri, Nov 14th 2:57am EST

Tannehill threw the ball 34 times connecting 26 to ten different receivers including himself (a ball knocked back by Kyle Williams) in a win against the Buffalo Bills on Thursday. He also rushed for 16 yards on four carries.

Fantasy Impact: Tannehill remains a QB2, perfect for Superflex leagues. He can be a suitable backup or utilized as a starter on a team with good roster support. Owners will not benefit from long-yardage bonuses, but can get a points boost due to Tannehill's tendency to run with the ball.


By Jeffrey Lee Colavecchio, Dolphins Correspondent, Sun, Nov 9th 7:14pm EST

Ryan Tannehill completed 15-of-20 passes for 106 yards in the first half. His 75.0 completion percentage was his fifth-highest completion percentage in the first half of a game in his career. He finished the game by completing 27-of-38 passes for 201 yards, one touchdowns and one interception. His 71.1 completion percentage was the sixth-highest in a game in his career. (Source: Miamidolphins.com)

Fantasy Impact: Overall Tannehill's play was not good enough to win this game, or contribute to your FF squads. Whether it was because the Lions defensive line was in his face or not, he missed several throws that could have been the difference for Miami. He is strictly a matchup based starter for fantasy purposes, but this will end up being the toughest outing for Tannehill when it's said and done. Detroit's defense is the real deal.


By Reginald James, Dolphins Correspondent, Fri, Nov 7th 2:50pm EST

Ryan Tannehill is averaging 7.9 yards per carry, putting him first among fellow QBs. He has rushed for more than 47 or more yards in four consecutive games this season. His 22-yard run Sunday against the Chargers places Tannehill alongside Steve Young and Michael Vick as the only quarterbacks with runs 20 yards or more in at least four consecutive games in the past 25 years. (Source: Sun Sentinel)

Fantasy Impact: Sunday's match against the top defensive unit of the Detroit Lions will be a good test to gauge Tannehill's growth. In most leagues, Tannehill was not drafted as a starter, but he's making the case that he should, at the very least, be kept as a backup - he's certainly been used as a bye week play. If Tannehill performs well against the Lions this weekend, owners should take the opportunity to sell Tannehill high to upgrade in other areas.


By Jeff Wilbur, Dolphins Correspondent, Sun, Nov 2nd 3:46pm EST

Ryan Tannehill sat out the 4th quarter after blowing out the San Deigo Chargers for the first 3 quarters. Tannehill completed 24 of 34 passes for 288 yards and 3 touchdowns with no interceptions. He also had 4 carries for 47 yards as a runner.

Fantasy Impact: This is what we've wanted to see all year from Tannehill. He looked nearly flawless today both as a passer and a runner. Let's see if this continues next week at Detroit. Right now Tannehill is a QB 2 with QB 1 upside.


By Jeff Wilbur, Dolphins Correspondent, Tue, Oct 28th 1:41pm EDT

Against the Jacksonville Jaguars, Ryan Tannehill went 16 of 29 for 196 yards, one touchdown, and one interception. He also finished with five rushes for 48 yards. (Source: NFL.com)

Fantasy Impact: Entering the week Tannehill looked to be a top 15 play at quarterback, and a possible low end QB1 against Jacksonville. The way the game played out never really allowed the offense to get in a rhythm. Tannehill showed flashes during the game, but remains an inconsistent fantasy producer. Proceed with caution.


By Jeffrey Lee Colavecchio, Dolphins Correspondent, Sat, Oct 25th 10:09am EDT

He (Tannehill) is on pace to turn the ball over just 13 times this season, compared to 22 times in 2013. His Achilles’ heel remains the deep throw. Tannehill has connected on just 5 of 18 attempts thrown 20 or more yards this season, with only one touchdown. Lazor’s solution: Don’t call those plays. Just 1 in 12 Dolphins passes have been of that length this year; only Green Bay takes fewer deep shots than Miami. (Source: Miami Herald)

Fantasy Impact: Good news, bad news type of story. Great to hear Tannehill is protecting the ball and that Lazor is adapting to his quarterback's strengths. On the other hand, disappointing the offense is not taking advantage of downfield opportunities yet. With Jacksonville giving up over 50% completion rate to deep passes, this is a great week to take a couple shots. Tannehill will definitely go over 20 fantasy points in standard formats versus the Jags.


By Jeffrey Lee Colavecchio, Dolphins Correspondent, Tue, Oct 21st 6:49pm EDT

Tannehill completed passes to eight different players against Chicago, with Wallace leading the way with five receptions and Charles Clay and Jarvis Landry getting four apiece. Philbin said the success of the passing game also was partly a result of the Dolphins’ ability to run the ball this season. (Source: Miamidolphins.com)

Fantasy Impact: This is the type of offense everyone expected from the "Lasor" system. The play-calling meshed wonderfully with the signal-caller's execution of the offense. Nicely timed read-option calls, where Tannehill found a lot of real estate, and some creative formations kept the Chicago defense on their heels. If Lasor and Tannehill continue to progress, it could mean big fantasy numbers down the stretch against a weak schedule.


By Jeffrey Lee Colavecchio, Dolphins Correspondent, Sun, Oct 19th 4:11pm EDT

Tannehill: 25-32, 277 Yds, 2 TD, 50 Rush yds (Source: Twitter.com)

Fantasy Impact: Really nice execution of Lasor's screen game and quick passing offense by Tannehill today. The RB's were able to find a lot of running room as Tannehill set up a couple of perfect screens behind Mike Pouncey and company. When Tannehill is using his legs to gain yardage and making decisive choices he is fantasy relevant. I have seen growth in the quarterback's game, he has gotten more and more comfortable in Lasor's offense as the seasons progressed.


By Reginald James, Dolphins Correspondent, Thu, Oct 16th 4:59am EDT

Tannehill completed 20-of-31 for 244 yards and two touchdowns Sunday against the Packers. He also rushed for 49 yards, 40 of those yards coming on one run, a kept ball off a read option, which was the longest offensive play of the year for the Dolphins. Tannehill has now rushed for 102 yards, tying with Geno Smith for 7th among quarterbacks. (Source: Dolphins.com)

Fantasy Impact: Tannehill threw to seven different receivers on Sunday. If he can continue to not show a bias to any one receiver, then defenses can't either. In addition, the read option not only helps the Miami backs, but also makes Tannehill a legitimate rushing threat. It's likely in most leagues that Tannehill is not a starter (with the exception of dual QB leagues). He is either on the wire, or rostered for a bye week start. That's about right at the moment for the QB2, but he's worth watching for any hints of breaking out.


By Jeffrey Lee Colavecchio, Dolphins Correspondent, Sun, Oct 12th 5:57pm EDT

The Dolphins took their first lead of the game with 9:13 left in regulation when Ryan Tannehill hit Mike Wallace with a 5-yard touchdown pass. It was the third consecutive touchdown drive for the Dolphins at the start of the second half, as Tannehill got hot after a difficult first half and the running game got going after being held to only 10 yards in the first two quarters. (Source: Miamidolphins.com)

Fantasy Impact: Tannehill's first half was very bad, but he did show some resiliency in the second half with two TD throws. Not to mention a 40 yard scamper on the first drive of the second half. I wish Lasor would use Tannehill's legs more often to move the ball, Green Bay seemed to key on stopping the Miami running backs. Keep an eye on the QB's usage as a runner, this could add value to an otherwise inconsistent player in FF and real football.


By Jeffrey Lee Colavecchio, Dolphins Correspondent, Sun, Sep 28th 4:00pm EDT

Ryan Tannehill completed 23-of-31 passes, throwing for 278 yards and 2 touchdowns (one interception). 109.3 passer rating today. (Source: Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Ryan Tannehill was more decisive this week, versus one of the worst defenses in the league. This offense is all based on quick hitting passes and screens, when Ryan is decisive, it’s much more effective. With Lamar Miller getting massive holes to run through, the playaction passes were on full display. The only interception came on a tip pass intended for Dion Sims, not to mention, a screen pass that went for a TD was negated by a Sims offensive PI penalty. It could have been a huge FF day for Tannehill if that screen had stood up, either way the run game looks strong and provides opportunity for the quarterback to be successful. I am starting to see FF value in the Dolphins offense if they can continue to improve.


By Brian Ruiz, Dolphins Correspondent, Mon, Sep 22nd 2:59pm EDT

After two straight weeks of mediocre play from the Dolphins offense it appears that Joe Philbin will consider benching his starting QB. He declined to say that Tannehill would be his starter when asked multiple times. (Source: Miami Herald)

Fantasy Impact: Although, OC Bill Lazor said Tannehill would start it appears Tannehill is no longer going to be able to get away with subpar play. Despite throwing more than forty times the fantasy value hasn't been there and without a major change there should be better options to play at QB. If he struggles in the game against the raiders it would be wise to make a switch with the bye week.


By Jeffrey Lee Colavecchio, Dolphins Correspondent, Sun, Sep 21st 9:05pm EDT

Ryan Tannehill completed 21 of 43 for 191 yards. Lamar Miller ran for 108 yards on 15 carries in the losing effort. The loss dropped Miami to 1-2. The Chiefs won for the first time this year. Drops, poor special teams play and conservative decisions kept the Dolphins scoreless for most of the first half. (Source: Miami Herald)

Fantasy Impact: Tannehill looked very tentative today, even during garbage time with KC up twelve and three minutes to go. His pocket presence seems to be at a mediocre level and never creates extra time for his WR's down field. On the one long ball thrown Wallace's way, it sailed over his head out of bounds. There is a lot of football left, but right now Tannehill does not look like the Dolphins' franchise quarterback of the future. He is definitely not a starting quarterback on your fantasy squad.


By Jeffrey Lee Colavecchio, Dolphins Correspondent, Sun, Sep 14th 4:32pm EDT

MiamiDolphins: Final. Buffalo - 29 Miami - 10 (Source: @miamidolphins)

Fantasy Impact: Ryan Tannehill looked very uneasy the entire game. Pressure from the Bills' front seven was not allowing the offense to go anywhere in the first half, and with special teams faltering, it got ugly quick. Once Knowshon Moreno went down, with an apparent elbow injury, there was no threat of a run game. So far, Tannehill does not look startable versus a strong pass rush like Buffalo's.


By Reginald James, Dolphins Correspondent, Sun, Sep 7th 10:58pm EDT

Ryan Tannehill's numbers Sunday included 18/32 passing with one interception. He struggled early tossing up some errant throws, but played much better in the second half running the offense at a faster clip, with snaps coming at an average of 25.7 seconds for each play. The rebuilt offensive line also protected Tannehill well, allowing just one sack vs. a 2013 line that gave up a team-record 58. (Source: Miami Herald)

Fantasy Impact: Tannehill should be rostered in most formats, either as a bye week backup or a starter in deep and super flex leagues. The upside potential for him and key players in Bill Lazor's offense should not be ignored.


By Jeffrey Lee Colavecchio, Dolphins Correspondent, Sun, Aug 31st 3:14pm EDT

According to multiple media reports, including that of the Miami Herald’s Armando Salguero, Dolphins Pro Bowl center Mike Pouncey will begin the season on the team’s 53 player roster. Some had speculated that Pouncey’s injury, which caused the team to place him on the PUP list at the beginning of training camp, would lead the team to leave the fourth-year center on the reserve/PUP list to begin the year, which would result in Pouncey missing the first six games of the 2014 season. (Source: Finsiders.com)

Fantasy Impact: That is wonderful news for all parties involved. The player who benefits the most from a quick Pouncey recovery is Ryan Tannehill. When Pouncey is pulling blocking, and cutting defenders to create lanes for the RB’s the pass game will benefit. Samson Satele will be serviceable in the mean time, it is really unfair to even compare him to the athlete that Mike Pouncey is. All skill positions for the Phins will get a boost in FF value upon his return, which Mike Pouncey claims is week 4 against the Oakland Raiders in London.


By Reginald James, Dolphins Correspondent, Sun, Aug 24th 12:06am EDT

Ryan Tannehill went 13-of-21 for 119 yards and an interception (a throw into double coverage). Tannehill's numbers through three preseason games are: 28-of-41 (68.3%) for 291 yards, one touchdown, and an interception, with a QB rating of 86.5. (Source: Armando Salguero on Twitter )

Fantasy Impact: Despite Saturday's stare down throw to Brian Hartline that got picked, Tannehill has been steady with his preseason play. He remains a solid QB2 with sneaky upside potential depending on how well the offense gels with the new Bill Lazor scheme. There is room to grow for all involved.


By Reginald James, Dolphins Correspondent, Sat, Aug 16th 10:12pm EDT

In the second quarter, Gerald McCoy sacked Tannehill, forcing a fumble. That's the only mark against yet another efficient night. After two preseason games: 15-of-20 passing for 172 yards and a touchdown. (Source: Omar Kelly on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Tannehill netted a 75% completion rate. Though the sample size is barely two full quarters, he's logged 88.4 and 149.3 passer ratings respectively the last two weeks. Because the Lazor offense is a work in progress, Tannehill is a QB2 with potentially big upside in redraft leagues, but a no-brainer for superflex drafters.


By Jeffrey Lee Colavecchio, Dolphins Correspondent, Sat, Aug 9th 3:39pm EDT

“It was a great first series, just the way we wanted to start the game,” Head Coach Joe Philbin said after halftime. “We had good balance on the drive.” While the report lists Tannehill as going 6 for 6 I do recall Miller bobbling a quick hitter in the flats that was ruled a catch which was not. Besides the drop, Lamar Miller hit holes quickly, kept the chains moving, and was efficient in his brief work. Brandon Gibson finished the drive with a short TD catch off of a play-action pass out of the shotgun. (Source: Miami Dolphins website)

Fantasy Impact: Even though it was an extremely small sample size, the new look Miami offense looked more rhythmic and aggressive than last season. Tannehill was decisive in his throws and distributed the ball quickly. As advertised, the offense featured screens and short passes to the running backs and receivers in space. Mike Wallace didn’t even play and already it’s easy to see he will be the man to target in an offense like this. It’s a good thing Miller was included in the pass game because Miami’s run-blocking will continue to be the weakness of this offense until Mike Pouncey returns.


By Brian Ruiz, Dolphins Correspondent, Fri, Aug 8th 7:50pm EDT

Tannehill played only one series in the opening preseason game. He went 6-6 for 62 yards and an TD.

Fantasy Impact: The offense looked very balanced and used quick hitting passes out of play action. It seemed to also have a fast tempo, very similar to the Eagles offense. It is an encouraging start for Tannehill, especially considering Clay, Hartline and Wallace sat out. Tannehill seems like a good sleeper pick in his new offense.


By Reginald James, Dolphins Correspondent, Sat, Aug 2nd 4:14pm EDT

James Walker reports that although Tannehill threw mostly against the second-team defense, he looked sharp throwing for two touchdowns, with no interceptions. The first-team offensive line protected Ryan well by not allowing any sacks. Stat line: 15/27, 139 yds , 2 TDs, two-point conversion, 0 INTs. (Source: ESPN)

Fantasy Impact: The 2013 offensive line allowed a team-record 58 sacks. The front office took steps in the off season to improve the situation by bringing in the likes of Branden Albert, and rookie Ja’Wuan James. Tannehill threw 67 percent of the time last year behind a crappy line. The outlook should be more favorable if he's throwing behind a line that can actually protect him. He's a QB2 with upside and worth watching as the offense continues to adapt to Bill Lazor's uptempo offense.

WalterFootball | Jul 29th
With new offensive coordinator Bill Lazor last season, Tannehill had his best year ever and finished as the 9th best fantasy quarterback. In Lazor's second season we should see a more polished offense and an even higher upside for Tannehill.
Breaking Football | Jul 29th
Tannehill continues to rise despite a dysfunctional system around him. I like his talent but his situations still scares me.
The NY Times | Jul 29th
Career best comp % (66.4), yards (4,045), and TDs (27) propelled him to 10th best in '14.
Coach Esser | Jul 28th
They gave him the weapons and now he has to take another step forward. Normally I would be all over it, but his inability to throw downfield means the defense can compress underneath. When he's involved in the running game he becomes even more dangerous. I like him, but don't love him.
Fantasy Football Maniax | Jul 15th
Tannehill was not a great NFL QB in 2014, but he did finish the season as the 9th ranked fantasy quarterback. He is still too bipolar for me to rank him as an elite fantasy quarterback. The Dolphins are also in flux at the skill positions, gone are WR Mike Wallace and TE Charles Clay and replacing them are rookie WR DeVante Parker, WR Kenny Stills, WR Greg Jennings and TE Jordan Cameron.
