Did you know that Tannehill had seven rushing touchdowns last season? With Tannehill's incredible efficiency - due in large part to AJ Brown - plus his rushing potential, he comes with a very safe floor every single week. The passing volume - or lack thereof - holds him back from being a true top-5 option at the QB position for fantasy football, but it's hard to find a more consistent option week after week. Heading into 2021, Tannehill lost Corey Davis and Jonnu Smith, but he replaced them with Julio. Arthur Smith has also left Tennessee as the OC to become the head coach of the Atlanta Falcons, which does leave some concern for how this offense will look under Todd Downing. Any argument that is brought up against Tannehill though is nitpicking. He's an extremely safe option and he does come with some weekly upside due to that rushing potential around the goal line. He can be viewed as a low-end QB1 this season.One of my favorite streaming options at the QB position this year is Newton in New England. Did you know that before Newton contracted COVID-19 in Week 4 last year he was the QB7 in all of fantasy football? This was despite being put in a brand new system late in the off-season - which wasn't really a true off-season - and without any true receiving weapons. Jakobi Meyers was Newton's top receiving option in 2020 and that's not going to lead to productivity from any QB! It certainly was not pretty from Newton, but he still brought consistent fantasy viability with his rushing prowess. Newton saw 42 (!) Red Zone carries last year and scored 12 rushing touchdowns and this was all while battling the after effects of COVID. With a full off-season in this system, plus the revamped receiving corps around him, Newton's my favorite buy at the QB position based on his price tag. There's a possibility that he doesn't start the entire season, but when you're streaming the QB position, you don't need that guarantee. The upside is too much to pass up on with Newton and I'll be drafting him everywhere that I can this season.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
Tannehill has been disrespected by the fantasy community long before Julio Jones was traded there. Tannehill became the starter of the Titans in Week 7 of 2019. Since that time, he's tallied 575.3 fantasy points, which ranks third among quarterbacks, behind only Josh Allen and Lamar Jackson. That's right... despite ranking 16th in pass attempts during that time (26-game sample size), he's finished with more fantasy points than Patrick Mahomes, Russell Wilson, Kyler Murray, and Deshaun Watson.It seems we won't know who the Patriots starting quarterback will be until weeks before the start of the season, but the expectation should be that Newton starts Week 1. He wasn't good in 2020 - there's no denying that, though it certainly didn't help that his top receiver was out for most of the season, and they were weak behind him on the depth chart. The Patriots beefed up their wide receiver/tight end depth chart by signing quite a few players, including Jonnu Smith, Nelson Agholor, and Hunter Henry. Knowing that Newton still flashed 500-plus yard rushing upside, he can be considered a solid streamer as long as he has the job, but if he plays like he did last year, his starting job will be short lived.

BRoto Fantasy
The True Value King! Tanny has been THE most efficient QB in the game over the last several seasons according to BrotoFantasy.com and the Fantasy Football By BRoto App exclusive stat, True Throw Value, which measures QB efficiency. Now he has Julio by his side as well? Sign me up! 
Tim Petropoulos
BRoto Fantasy
The True Throw Value (a BRoto Fantasy Exclusive Stat that measures a QB's fantasy efficiency through the air) king was wildly efficient yet again last season, finishing third overall for his second top-3 and third top-6 finish in as many years. This year he will add the aging Julio Jones to the mix and look to take the offense to the next level after OC Arthur Smith went to the Falcons. The first play-action bomb Julio Jones catches will be a thing of beauty. He is going to be slept on yet again, don't miss out for a third straight year.After the throwing performance Cam put on last season, it's only a matter of time until Mac Jones gets his shot.
Mark Ringo
Sleepers and Busts
The addition of Julio Jones makes this offense very interesting. The big question, will Titans head coach, Mike Vrabel, allow New offensive coordinator, Todd Downing, to air it out more often? He should, otherwise why did they trade for Julio in the first place? If he does, Tannehill could have a career year.Cam hurt his hand in OTA's. Hopefully he's okay. Even if he is 1st round pick, QB Mac Jones, is breathing down his neck. The book on Jones is he's not the most gifted QB athletically, but he's very smart and will pick up the offense much quicker than the average rookie QB. If Cam can hold him off, for awhile at least, he has some new weapons in Jonnu Smith, Hunter Henry, Nelson Agholor, and Kendrick Bourne. And while they're talented, that's still a lot of moving pieces. I'd rather have more continuity.
Joe Pisapia
FantasyPros
2020 was a roller coaster for the Titans and QB Ryan Tannehill. The fact he finished as a QB1 (8) times and a QB2 (8) times says it all. He finished with 3.8K yards, 33 passing TDs, and seven rushing TDs. Ideally, you want Tannehill as your second QB in a Superflex format. That bonus upside he brings some weeks can be huge. However, as your starting quarterback in a single QB format, the inconsistencies could hurt you some weeks. The Titans lost Corey Davis and Jonnu Smith to free agency, but added Julio Jones in June to create one of the more formidable WR corps in the NFL. Tannehill has established himself as a fantasy-worthy QB, it's just that no one seems to give him his due. The Jones addition will raise that profile, but overpaying for Tannehill isn't advisable either. He's a lower end QB1, but still underappreciated. 
John Hesterman
Dynasty League Football
We cannot pretend that the addition of Julio Jones is not straight positive for Tannehill's seasonal outlook. He should be locked and loaded as a top-12 option at the position and is a safe pick for a team's QB1 in all formats. 
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Tannehill was fantastic in 2020 with 350.36 fantasy points in 16 games or 21.90 fantasy points per game. He should be in the QB1 discussion in 2021, especially with that acquisition of Julio Jones. 
Wolf of Roto Street
Roto Street Journal
 *UPDATE* Upside remains high & was endorsed as starter, but Mac Jones unlikely to ride pine all year. Weapons upgrade + full offseason could mean return to, or improvement on, early-season Cam that was Top-10.
