 Chiefs very quietly rated 4th in pass defense DVOA. Tannehill, freed from Adam Gase, currently leads the NFL in completion percentage at 71.8 and has a career best passer rating of 99.7.
Bobby Sylvester
FantasyPros
The Saints' defense has improved of late, but their secondary is still in the bottom half of the league plus Ryan will be playing in a dome and likely from behind which should mean 40+ pass attempts. That volume alone makes him startable regardless of his weapons or the matchup. 
Zach Brunner
FantasyPros
Matt Ryan is expected to be good against the Saints this week. We know they way to beat New Orleans is pass the football, and despite the Falcons being terrible, Ryan has actually played very well this season, passing for over 300 yards in every game but the last. We can expect him to play well enough to be a QB1 again this week. 
Kevin Roberts
Breaking Football
Major shootout potential and he's been great for most of the year, but let's not pretend like the Saints D isn't good. Cuz it is.Titans should be playing catchup here and everyone knows KC defense gives up production. Tannehill is tough to play, but he's a fine option if you need him. Great DFS try.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
He'll be back under center this week after he was forced to take a game off before their bye week. Fresh off their bye, he'll get the Saints, a defense that has been trending in the right direction after a rough start. They allowed Deshaun Watson, Jared Goff, and Russell Wilson 21-plus points in each of the first three games but haven't allowed more than 18 fantasy points in any game since, including holding Dak Prescott, Gardner Minshew, and Kyler Murray to 10.1 or less fantasy points. It's not volume concerns, as no quarterback has averaged more than 7.6 yards per attempt since Week 3, while 4-of-5 quarterbacks averaged less than 6.8 yards per attempt. But here's the catch… these teams know each other very well and Ryan was able to notch 374 yards and five touchdowns in the first meeting last year, while totaling 377 yards and two touchdowns in the second meeting. He had two of the top six performances the Saints defense allowed last year, and they had similar personnel. The lack of a run-game for the Falcons, combined with the Saints ability to shut down the run, equals plenty of pass attempts for Ryan, who should be plugged in as a mid-level QB1 in this divisional matchup.He's now completed 71.8 percent of his attempts this year, which is quite remarkable considering he's not checking down very often. His average depth of target is 9.0 yards down the field, which ranks 10th in the NFL. He threw two interceptions last week, though one of them legitimately bounced off A.J. Brown's hands and shouldn't be used as a detriment to Tannehill. The Chiefs haven't been as an efficient matchup as some believe, as we've seen just three quarterbacks average more than 6.7 yards per attempt against them. They've allowed just 7.08 yards per attempt on the year, which ranks as the ninth-lowest mark in football, but the volume they've faced (36.0 attempts per game) has allowed some big performances. They've allowed just one quarterback to throw for 300 yards (Aaron Rodgers), but have allowed three passing touchdowns on three separate occasions. They've also allowed a league-high four rushing touchdowns to quarterbacks. It's seemingly one thing or another against them, which has allowed 6-of-9 quarterbacks to score 17.6 or more fantasy points. Tannehill showed off his legs last week while rushing for 38 yards and a touchdown, and it might be good to use them here, as the Chiefs have allowed the second-most fantasy points on the ground to quarterbacks. With Mahomes back for the Chiefs, this is likely to be another high-attempt game for Tannehill, who can be considered a high-end QB2 streaming option. He's now scored at least 19.1 fantasy points in each of his three starts.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
The Saints are 19th against fantasy quarterbacks, Ryan should be a QB1 in a game that could evolve into a shootout in New Orleans.
