It felt like we were back in 2019 again, as Tannehill was absurdly efficient against the Jaguars, completing 18-of-24 passes for 239 yards and four touchdowns. He did it without A.J. Brown, too, which made it that much more impressive. It was clear they sold out to stop Henry, allowing Tannehill to find his men sometimes uncovered. He's now thrown 28 touchdowns over his last 12 regular-season games as a starter. The Vikings defense is suddenly one to pick on in fantasy, as they've allowed the fourth-most fantasy points per game (111.4) through two weeks. It's balanced, too, as they've allowed 20.7 points per game to quarterbacks, while allowing 28.5 PPR points per game to running backs. They're still without their best pass rusher (Danielle Hunter) for at least one more week, and their defense took another hit last week when linebacker Anthony Barr tore his pectoral muscle and was announced as out for the year. Even with Barr, the Vikings have allowed a 73.9 percent completion-rate, 8.38 yards per attempt, and a 7.3 percent touchdown-rate. Those are all near the league high. The only concern with Tannehill is Henry taking over, but knowing the Vikings opponents have averaged 71.5 plays per game, there should be plenty to go around. Tannehill should be considered a low-end QB1/high-end QB2.

Ryan Tannehill throws for 321 yards in win on Sunday

Ryan Tannehill was 23-37 for 321 yards with no touchdowns and one interception and also ran four times for nine yards on Sunday as the Titans beat the Vikings by a 31-30 score on Sunday in Week 3 action.

Fantasy Impact

Tannehill threw his first interception as the veteran QB came into the game with six touchdown passes and no turnovers. Tannehill faces a tough Pittsburgh defense in Week 4 and should only be started in 12-14 team fantasy leagues and deeper.
