Ryan Tannehill traded to Titans

Adam Schefter of ESPN reports the Dolphins have traded quarterback Ryan Tannehill to the Titans.

Fantasy Impact

Tennessee will be giving Tannehill a one-year, $7 million contract to serve as Marcus Mariota’s backup. In return Miami is getting a fourth rounder in 2020 and a seventh rounder in 2019 while also sending the Titans a sixth-round pick this year. The bottom line is the Dolphins were very ready to move on from Tannehill, and they’ll now look to replace him in the upcoming draft.

Ryan Tannehill expected to be released

The Miami Herald reports the Dolphins are planning to release Ryan Tannehill.

Fantasy Impact

The report adds the Dolphins aren’t expected to spend big money to replace him. Miami is also expected to announce their head coach hiring following the Super Bowl, so this will be a total fresh start for the organization. Tannehill is not finished as a starting quarterback in the NFL, but he doesn’t carry much fantasy value heading into 2019.

Ryan Tannehill drops a dud in Week 17 loss

Ryan Tannehill completed 18-of-31 pass attempts for 147 yards and two interceptions in the Dolphins' Week 17 loss to the Bills. He rushed twice for nine yards and also caught a pass on his only target, which went for a three-yard touchdown. Tannehill fumbled once as well.

Fantasy Impact

Tannehill wasn't even bailed out by a receiving score, as he laid a complete egg otherwise. Even with decent offensive weapons, Tannehill can't break free of his game manager skillset. Expect Tannehill to be right back in the low-end QB2 conversation in 2019 assuming he still has a starting job.

Ryan Tannehill has low output vs. Jags

Ryan Tannehill completed 15-of-22 pass attempts for 146 yards, one touchdown, and one interception in the Dolphins' Week 16 loss to the Jaguars. He rushed three times for 22 yards.

Fantasy Impact

Tannehill is normally a low-upside game manager, and displayed exactly that in a tough matchup with a talented Jaguars secondary. For those playing in Week 17, Tannehill's matchup with the Bills isn't much better, and he should be avoided with the exception of 2QB formats.

Ryan Tannehill drops dud against Vikings

Ryan Tannehill completed 11-of-24 pass attempts for 108 yards and rushed once for one yard in the Dolphins' Week 15 loss to the Vikings.

Fantasy Impact

Tannehill totally faceplanted, though it was a tough matchup. Tannehill, who has been buoyed by TD production of late, has normally been a QB2 throughout his career, and that's right where he has found himself, if even there. Next week, the Dolphins host a Jaguars team that has a talented secondary, so Tannehill should not be used in most league formats.
