Last season, Tannehill finished with over 4,200 passing yards, yet somehow he is being drafted as QB24. It is no mystery why 97% of our experts suggest drafting Tannehill higher than his ADP. The Dolphins added to the offensive line and expect DeVante Parker to take a major leap forward so 4,500 might not be out of the question for 2016.

After a terrible first preseason game, Miami Dolphins' QB Ryan Tannehill played four drives finishing 12 for 20 with 162 yards and two TDs. Tannehill’s night could have been even better as the Dolphins had three dropped TDs in the end zone (one each by Jordan Cameron, Jarvis Landry, and DeVante Parker).

Fantasy Impact: Tannehill was a top 10 QB in 2014 but fell off in 2015. Tannehill is one of the best examples of why it’s smart to wait to draft your QB. Tannehill is currently the 22 QB being drafted on average. Dolphins’ head coach Adam Gase has been known to be a bit of a “QB whisperer”. In 2015, Jay Cutler had his best QB rating under Adam Gase and in 2013, future HOFer Peyton Manning had the best statistical season of his career under Adam Gase. It remains to be seen what Gase can get out of the inconsistent fifth-year veteran. Tannehill is currently going undrafted in standard sized leagues. I would stay away from Tannehill week 1 as the Dolphins travel to Seattle to take on the Legion of Boom, but after that, Tannehill might be a solid streaming option for portions of the season.

I liked Tannehill last season, that is, until he started playing. He does show flashes, and he's got a nice young receiving core with Jarvis Landry and DeVante Parker. I'm really keen on Parker taking off in 2016, and if Tannehill can keep up, they could make a nice duo in fantasy

It’s worth noting , for those of us stressing about our fantasy football drafts this year, quarterback is usually not the first position we worry about. In the first 47 picks, only two quarterbacks come off the board per Fantasy Football Calculator ADP. As fantasy players continue to draft quarterback later and later, Ryan Tannehill

I'm sick of hearing about his improving deep ball. Either show it or make way for someone who can unleash those nice assets at WR.

There is a LOVE/HATE debate going on with Tannehill. I love the weapons and Gase should help quite a bit.

Adam Gase is an offensive guru, Miami has nice passing game talent and Tannehill has been a top-10 guy before. It's not crazy to think he returns to that form in 2016.

People forget that Tannehill was the 9th ranked fantasy quarterback in 2014, but he fell to 17th in 2015 with 4,208 yards passing, 24 passing touchdowns and 12 interceptions. He should benefit from the additions of T Laremy Tunsil, RB Kenyan Drake, WR Leonte Carroo, WR Jakeem Grant and TE Thomas Duarte. The Dolphins offense figures to look more exciting with new head coach Adam Gase.
