Isaiah Sirois
FantasyPros
Tannehill has been a touchdown-scoring machine thus far. He's tossed 13 of them, and he's often had to do so without some of his best offensive weapons. While he'll finally have the whole band back together this week, the matchup is not a good one for him -- Pittsburgh has one of the best defenses against the pass in the league. Tannehill isn't a complete fade for me, but he's a low-end QB1/high-end QB2 in a matchup like this. 
Zachary Hanshew
FantasyPros
Tanny has gone for 8 TDs to just one INT over the last two weeks while averaging nearly 300 passing yards in the process. It's becoming increasingly dangerous to bet against him, and even in a tough matchup with Pittsburgh, he's a high-end QB2 with upside. 
John Hesterman
Dynasty League Football
 Jared Goff plays the Bears on Monday night. The Bears and Rams have placed twice in the last two years and Goff has failed to throw a touchdown during those matchups. While Goff is normally a decent streaming option, fantasy managers may want to pivot elsewhere this week.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
We now have a 15-game sample size with Tannehill as the starter of the Titans, and he's scored 17.9 or more fantasy points in 13 of them, including 26.7 or more points in three of his last four games. He's a stable high-floor quarterback who continually breaks efficiency. Can he keep it up against the Steelers? Teams have chosen to drop back and pass on 66.3 percent of plays against them, which is the highest percentage in the league. They've also not had too much luck, as the 58.5 percent completion-rate is the second-lowest mark in the league. They've also sacked the opposing quarterback on 12.3 percent of dropbacks, which is flat-out ridiculous, as no other team is over 9.3 percent. This is particularly worrisome because Tannehill just lost his starting left tackle Taylor Lewan for the season. With that being said, the Steelers have allowed 4-of-5 quarterbacks throw for at least 258 yards and two touchdowns against them. It also helps that Tannehill has been the best quarterback in the league under pressure, boasting a 110.5 QB Rating when he's under duress, which has been 27.6 percent of the time. It's safe to say Derrick Henry is going to have trouble moving the ball against this Steelers defense, which should put more of the load on Tannehill's shoulders, though we haven't seen a quarterback finish as a top-12 option against them since Week 11 of last year. Because of that, Tannehill should be considered a high-end QB2 who seemingly always outperforms expectations.He's been very hit-or-miss in fantasy this year, as he has three games with less than 15 fantasy points, but three games with at least 23.9 fantasy points. Last week was the first one where Goff threw the ball more than 32 times, and we saw how that went over. The Rams scored 16 points. The Bears require a lot of volume against them, as they've allowed a league-low 1.14 PPR points per offensive play. No other team in the league is below 1.20 points per play. Their opponents have averaged 65.5 plays per game, which is a lot, and it's due to the Bears offense not being able to sustain long drives with a lack of ground game. Still, the Bears have allowed a total of just 74.6 fantasy points per game to their opponents, which ranks as the second-lowest mark in the league. We know that Goff doesn't do anything with his legs, right? So, when you see the Bears have allowed a league-low 0.312 fantasy points per actual pass attempt, you should run the other way. It's a combination of everything, too. They've allowed just a 57.1 percent completion-rate (1st in NFL), 1.83 percent touchdown-rate (1st in NFL), and 6.55 yards per attempt (4th in NFL). The last two times Goff played against this Bears defense, which were both very similar personnel, he completed 20-of-44 attempts for 180 yards, no touchdowns, and four interceptions in the first game and then 11-of-18 passing for 173 yards, no touchdowns, and one interception in the second game. He's not a streamer.
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Right now, it's hard to find a QB who is playing better over the past few weeks than Tannehill. The Steelers are generally a pretty stingy defense, but with the way Tannehill has looked recently, it would be very hard to bench him. Plug him into your lineup as a low-end QB1.Goff had been playing fairly well up until last week, but there simply seems to be something about his performance in primetime games. While there's certainly a time and space to argue whether or not there's something to that, we'll leave that be for right now. However, there is something to be said about Goff's performances against this Bears defense. In two career games against the Bears defense, Goff has yet to throw a single touchdown. Meanwhile, he's only completed 50% of his passes, averaged 5.9 Yards Per Attempt, and thrown five interceptions. While I'm not projecting anywhere near that bad of a performance from Goff here, he has an extremely low floor in this matchup. Goff's a low-end QB2 in this matchup and I'd recommend looking elsewhere if you can.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
The Steelers are 9th against fantasy quarterbacks, but now they have to deal with the loss of Devin Bush Jr. I would treat Tannehill as more of a QB2 this week than a QB1.
