Bobby Sylvester
FantasyPros
You can say Tannehill is playing over his head lately but I'd say you aren't watching the tape because he has been quite impressive. That has led to him scoring nearly 22 fantasy points per game since taking over six weeks ago despite a number of challenging matchups. This week, he gets a Raiders' secondary so bad that they've essentially turned the average quarterback they've faced this season into Russell Wilson from an efficiency standpoint. Seeing that Tannehill also runs the ball well, that gives him a strong floor and ceiling this week.Brady is dealing with an elbow injury and just hasn't looked the same lately. Add in the fact that both Edelman and Sanu are questionable, and it is difficult to trust him as a fantasy start versus a strong Chiefs secondary.
Donald Gibson
FantasyPros
Tannehill continues to impress, and this week he faces a Raiders defense that gives up the fourth-most fantasy points to opposing quarterbacks. He's a low-end QB1 and an excellent streaming option for Week 14.Brady has been fairly inconsistent from a fantasy perspective, but his matchup with the Chiefs looks primed to be a shootout, and the Chiefs are in the bottom half of defenses against fantasy quarterbacks. Consider him a low-end QB1.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
The Raiders are 30th against fantasy quarterbacks, Tannehill is an upside QB1 play on the road this week. 
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
Since becoming the starter for the Titans in Week 7, Tannehill is the No. 5 quarterback in points per game, behind only Lamar Jackson, Josh Allen, Dak Prescott, and Aaron Rodgers. He is coming off his worst game as the starter, though it still netted almost 14 fantasy points. The Raiders are the perfect team for him to play and get back on track. Of the last nine quarterbacks they've played, seven of them have finished inside the top-16 quarterbacks, including five of them finishing top-six. They've been a funnel defense, allowing minimal production on the ground, but a sky-high 8.21 yards per attempt through the air (4th-highest), including a 6.70 percent touchdown-rate (2nd-highest). Quarterbacks have averaged just 33.6 attempts per game against them, though that's been enough to allow the fourth-most fantasy points to the position. This almost describes what Tannehill has done as the starter, as he's averaged 9.1 yards per attempt and thrown a touchdown on 6.82 percent of his attempts. We've also seen three quarterbacks rush for a touchdown, and two completely separate quarterbacks rush for 46-plus yards. Tannehill belongs in the low-end QB1 conversation this week.Dating back to Week 6, Brady has completed just 59.9 percent of his passes while averaging just 6.2 yards per attempt with eight touchdowns and four interceptions. That's over a span of seven games. By comparison, Mitch Trubisky has completed 63.1 percent of his passes for 6.3 yards per attempt with 10 touchdowns and five interceptions over his last seven games. Both have not been particularly good. But will Brady turn it on for this matchup against the Chiefs? He played against them twice last year, throwing for 340-plus yards in each game but also throwing just one touchdown in each game. The matchup against Kansas City hasn't been as great as some make it out to be every week, as they've held 7-of-12 quarterbacks to less than 6.9 yards per attempt, while allowing 18 passing touchdowns and 12 interceptions over 12 games. That's the definition of an average matchup, though quarterback rushing totals have propped-up the overall numbers. The Chiefs have pressured the opposing quarterback at least 40 percent of the time in four of their last six games, which is what kills Brady, as he's the third-worst passer in the league when under pressure, behind only Jameis Winston and Mason Rudolph. Brady looks like nothing more than a middling QB2 in this matchup.
