Zachary Hanshew
FantasyPros
Tanny has been nothing short of an abject bust for fantasy managers this season, though there's reason to be optimistic in Week 7. After posting just one top-10 week and three outside the top-20, he'll face a Chiefs defense that's offered as much resistance as a wet paper towel. Consider the Titans' QB a top-10 play in Week 7. 
Pat Fitzmaurice
FantasyPros
It's been a disappointing season for Tannehill, who enters Week 7 as the QB19 in fantasy scoring and has only enjoyed one week in TE1 range. But this could be a get-well spot for Tannehill, who faces a Chiefs defense that's giving up 25.6 fantasy points per game to opposing QBs, the second-highest total in the league behind only the Washington Football Team. On the injury front, the good news is that Tannehill got WRs A.J. Brown and Julio Jones back from hamstring injuries last week. The bad news is that Jones aggravated his troublesome hammy, and starting tackle Taylor Lewan seems unlikely to play after being carted off the field Monday night with a concussion. I have Tannehill ranked QB8 this week. With his wide range of possible outcomes, I like him as a GPP play at $6,400 on DraftKings but not as a cash-game play. 
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
The Chiefs are 31st against fantasy quarterbacks this year, but Tannehill is averaging only 16.66 fantasy points per game. Tannehill is more of a low-end QB1 to high-end QB2 with six teams on bye this week.
