Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
 Ryan did have some appeal earlier on this off-season, but with Julio Jones now out of town, I'm staying completely away from the veteran QB. With a WR corps that lacks proven depth, it's difficult to find a path for how Ryan finishes as a top-12 QB. He might be able to provide you with a solid floor each week, but the path for upside simply isn't there. He's a fine QB2 for your Superflex formats, but I'm willing to look elsewhere at the position in my 1QB leagues.
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.Ryan had two elite wide receivers in Julio Jones and Calvin Ridley, but Julio is now onto Tennessee. The addition of TE sensation Kyle Pitts in the draft could fill that void and running back Mike Davis in free agency gives Ryan a complete and balanced complement of weapons. Ryan is an annual threat to throw for 4.5K yards and close to 30 TDs. The Falcons still didn't make any real gains year over year defensively, so this offense will have plenty of opportunities to put up points. That's good for your fantasy team. Ryan is a "safe" consolation prize at QB if you miss out on the upper tier at the position. New HC Arthur Smith doesn't have Derrick Henry in Atlanta, so the strength of the offense will continue to be the passing game.
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.The Falcons defense is awful. They'll be trailing and forced to pass, which means a lot of garbage yards will be there for the taking in the 4th Qtr. Losing Julio Jones hurts. At least Atlanta drafted highly touted rookie TE Kyle Pitts. If the Falcons can protect Ryan he could put up some decent numbers. Ryan's lack of mobility limits his upside though. Seriously, if the city of Atlanta built a new statue I think the statue would gain more rushing yards haha!
Bart Wheeler
Hail to Fantasy Football
I already had him as my QB9, so I can't move him much higher. But he's definitely someone I'm targeting in the middle rounds, and I might move him up a spot of two before Week 1.Down a couple of spots with Julio gone.
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.Put a fork in Matt Ryan, he's done. Last season, he led the entire league in both pass attempts and completions yet only mustered the 15th most fantasy points per game while finishing 24th in True Throw Value (a BRoto Fantasy Exclusive Stat that measures a QB's fantasy efficiency through the air). If you can't count on a QB1 finish, at the very least, from an immobile QB in a year that he leads the league in completions, then what more is there really to consider? On top of that, in the last two years Ryan has average 5 less fantasy points per game without Julio Jones. This might be the last year that Matt Ryan is a full-year starter in the NFL.
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. 
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. 
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.The Falcons are keeping Matt Ryan at least through this year and they have given him Calvin Ridley and Kyle Pitts as weapons. Pitts was a great addition, but losing Julio Jones makes Ryan more of a QB2 this year.
Wolf of Roto Street
Roto Street Journal
 Arthur Smith intriguing playcaller, though run-heavy past slight concern. Wonder how much of that was Vrabel directed, and now Kyle Pitts makes this team virtually indefe nsible
