Expert 
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
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.With Gary Kubiak now at OC, it's going to be interesting to see just how much the Vikings run the ball in 2020. Cousins will be a fringe starter for fantasy football again this season.
Seth Miller
Crossroads Fantasy Football
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

Tanny was the QB9 in ppg last year. 
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
Tannehill is coming off one of the most efficient seasons of all-time. What most don't realize is that he's been pretty efficient throughout the course of his career, though injuries haven't allowed him to stay on the field. His career QB Rating is actually higher than Matthew Stafford. Now firmly entrenched as the starter in Tennessee, will he become a fantasy star? The concern is always going to come to lack of pass attempts. If he'd averaged a decent 7.2 yards per attempt last year, he would not have been a consistent fantasy starter. The Titans are not expected to throw the ball 500 times, which means Tannehill would be relying on super high efficiency or his legs to drive his fantasy production. That's a slippery slope on a week-to-week basis, so consider Tannehill a streamer who's unlikely to repeat.A run-first offense that just lost their best receiver? Cousins is likely to finish higher than where I have him ranked because he's been durable and has zero chance of losing the starting job, but I'd rather select someone with more upside in that range. The best-case scenario for Cousins is that he finishes as a high-end QB2, which is a reach considering he threw the ball just 444 times last year.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
 Cousins had 3,603 yards passing and 26 passing touchdowns on a run oriented team. He is a middle of the road QB2 on an offense that abandons the pass at times.
