The Browns allow the 10th most points to fantasy QBs, Tannehill should be s solid QB1 at home this week. 
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
It seems like Tannehill is back on track after a lull in the middle of the season. He's totaled over 40 fantasy points over the last two weeks, and he's doing it on the back of Derrick Henry. Sure, Henry isn't used much in the passing game, but the threat he presents has opened play action to Tannehill and the receivers. He's right back to being the high-floor streamer we've come to know and love over the last two years. The Titans also have the third-highest team-implied total on this slate (29.8 points), which is great news for Tannehill's floor. The Browns are likely getting their top pass-rusher Myles Garrett back for this game, which will give their pass-rush a boost, but again, that's somewhat negated with what Henry has done to defenses. There have been just three times all season where a quarterback has thrown more than 37 pass attempts against the Browns and just three who've finished with more than 7.36 yards per attempt, so it feels as if there's a low floor here, but Tannehill isn't someone who ever relies on pass attempts to get things done. He's topped 31 pass attempts in just three of his 11 games this year, yet he's still been able to finish with 17.3-plus fantasy points in 8-of-11 games. The Browns have allowed a high 5.38 percent touchdown-rate, which ranks as the ninth-highest mark in the league, and let's not forget the fact that their overall numbers are going to look better than they are because of the three crazy-high-wind games they played in Weeks 8-11. Tannehill should offer a stable floor as a mid-to-high-end QB2, and he could be an interesting pivot off Henry in mass-entry tournaments, as we have seen two 35-point quarterback performances against the Browns this year.
