Andrew Seifter
FantasyPros
Tannehill has thrown for over 230 yards just once all season, but he does have multiple touchdown passes in five of the seven games he's played in. He may need to drop back to pass fairly often to keep up with New England, and the Patriots have been a favorable matchup for QBs this season, so you could do worse than Tannehill as a low-end QB2. Darnold returns from a three-game absence this week to face the Bills, who present arguably the toughest matchup for opposing QBs in the entire league, especially when playing at home. Darnold has done nothing this season to suggest he will have success in this contest. He's a bottom-of-the-barrel fantasy option this week.
Tim McCullough

 Injury-Based Fantasy Advice - SIT - Even though Darnold is practicing in full this week and is ready to return following a month off battling a foot injury, he doesn't have any real value this week. Don't bother considering him when you set your lineups.
