Draft Engine
Draft Engine
Stafford made 136 consecutive starts dating back to the 2011 season before missing the second half of 2019 after fracturing bones in his back in a Nov. 3 game against the Raiders. The expectation is that he'll be ready for the start of the 2020 season.Tannehill was signed to a four-year, 118 million contract after leading the NFL with a 117.5 passer rating and 9.6 yards per attempt in 2019. There's no way he comes close to duplicating those number with NFL defenses bound to make adjustments.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
There have been a lot of people talking about Stafford's 2019 season before injury, highlighting that it could be a sign of things to come. He was the No. 6 quarterback in fantasy through nine weeks, yes. But do you know who No. 5 was? Aaron Rodgers. That didn't end well. Stafford's 8.2 yards per attempt was easily a career high and just the second time in his career over 7.6 yards per attempt. He's going to be a fine low-end QB1/high-end QB2, but he's not likely to be a league winner at this stage of his career.When someone goes from anywhere in between 6.7 and 7.7 yards per attempt throughout their first six years, then jumps up to 9.6 yards per target, we call that an outlier, especially when said outlier contains just a 286-pass attempt sample size. We can't ignore it, though. Tannehill put his name on the record books, as his 117.5 QB Rating in 2019 ranks as the fourth-best all-time. His 0.67 fantasy points per actual pass attempt ranked as the fourth-best mark over the last 10 years. What made it all that more impressive is that he was sacked every 10.8 dropbacks, which was the third-most often in the league. By comparison, Drew Brees was sacked every 32.5 dropbacks. So, that leaves us saying, "Okay, we know there'll be regression, but how much?" Under Mike Vrabel, the Titans have run exactly 58.8 plays per game in each of his first two seasons as head coach. We know they want to be a run-first team, right? That's why the pass attempts have been 432 in 2018 and 448 in 2019. That's a problem. For the sake of argument, let's raise that number to 500, which would be a massive difference. Even assigning Tannehill a number of 8.3 yards per attempt (Patrick Mahomes' number from 2019), it would amount to 4,150 yards. Then let's say he throws a touchdown on 5.0 percent of his passes (Dak Prescott from 2019). That would amount to 25 touchdowns. So, 4,150 passing yards and 25 touchdowns while comparing him to Mahomes and Prescott, while raising his pass attempts up to 500? Do you see why it makes little sense to think Tannehill even approaches top-10 territory? By comparison, Tom Brady threw for 4,057 yards and 24 touchdowns last year - he was hardly usable. Treat Tannehill as a streamer and you'll be happy. He's a great No. 2 quarterback to have in Superflex/2QB leagues because he's locked into the job and has shown top-five upside, even if it's highly improbable.
Michael Petropoulos
BRoto Fantasy
 Ryan Tannehill was the first overall quarterback overall in True Throw Value in 2019 (brotofantasy.com), which means he was the most efficient fantasy QB in the entire league. He was a top 5 QB over the back half of the season. His ADP is far too low.

Derek Lofland

Stafford was on pace for almost 5,000 yards passing and 38 passing touchdowns before he missed 8 games due to a back injury. The big worry at this point for the 32-year old quarterback is durability playing on a bad team, but he puts up big passing numbers when healthy. 
Jason Petropoulos
BRoto Fantasy
 10th in FPPG last season for QBs. 1st in True Throw Value (Brotofantasy.com). Another year with his young stud WR teammate and a sneaky rushing ability. Tannehill is a very good late-round choice.
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Stafford was on fire before his injury last season and was a solid fantasy option. He's currently being drafted as the QB13 and should easily return that value in 2020.Due to the lack of pure passing volume in this offense, Tannehill's unlikely to be a consistent fantasy option in 2020. While Tannehill was excellent for fantasy last season, he did that on the back of incredible efficiency and that's hard to project forward again this season.

If we can just re-run last year and his career year that he was having before injury, he'll be a steady play for your fantasy team. Don't have to expect a career year 2 years in a row, just need Hockenson to take another step forward, and a hopefully improved run game to keep the offense humming.A career year in terms of underlying QB statistics that undoubtedly help lead a hyper efficient offense. Not sure what reasons we would have for any kind of major drop-off to make us not want to smash the draft button at his current ADP. Injuries are what have marred the 31 year old's career up to this point. He thrived with Gase when healthy and was always a favorite breakout candidate. He's had his breakout, with great QB metrics and a rushing floor and now he's being drafted as QB19 in redraft? A major value, especially when you can consider the higher upside shots at more important positions it allows you to take while waiting on QB

He was the QB6 through 9 weeks last year before going to the IR.Tanny was the QB9 in ppg last year.

Before his Week 10 injury last season, Matthew Stafford was QB6 and in the talks for MVP. He returns this year with the same solid group of WR's as last year with the key addition of 2nd round rookie RB DeAndre Swift. Stafford has been known to stuff the stat sheets throughout his career and in an offense with this much firepower, we could see another top 10 finish in 2020.Ryan Tannehill was 2019's Cinderella story, coming off the bench to lead the Titans all the way to the AFC title game. His performance on the field was at times brilliant but for the most part, not fantasy relevant. The Titans run the ball too much for Tannehill to repeat his numbers for 2019 which is why he's someone I'd avoid unless you're in a pinch.

The Fantasy First Down
After years of fantasy mediocrity and seemingly out of nowhere, Matthew Stafford exploded out of the blocks to start the 2019 season, averaging his most fantasy points per game since 2011. Heading into 2020, he provides a relatively safe option with sudden and surprising upside who you can grab later in drafts then many of the more established fantasy guns. He's a great option if he's still there in the double digit rounds of fantasy drafts.A massive key to fantasy success is getting on players before they break out. I was all over Tannehill when he took over in Tennessee last year, placing him in my top 5 weekly as the season climaxed. He balled out too, getting three TDs every week after week 7. That suggests amazing sustainability so surely he'll be great this year right? NO! Tannehill had amazing efficiency and regression is a cruel mistress. While he continues to show weekly upside, I just can't trust Tannehill to perform in any given week and for that reason, he's nothing more than a gamble. With so much QB depth, that's not a gamble I need to take.

 Returns to the TEN offense and system that made him a Top-3 QB from when he took over. Will be tough to retain his insane TD efficiency though, and the playoffs emphasized his low low floor whenever Henry takes over games completely on his own.
