Ryan Tannehill completed 18-of-31 passes for 147 yards with no touchdowns and two interceptions in Sunday's Week 17 loss to the Bills.
Tannehill did catch a 3-yard touchdown in the game while also losing a fumble. After missing the entire 2017 season with a torn ACL, Tannehill turned in a mixed-bag performance in 2018. Finishing the season with 17 touchdown passes to nine interceptions, Tannehill set a career-high in touchdown rate (7.0 percent), but also set a career-low in passing yards per game (183.2 yards). He also missed five games in the middle of the season due to a shoulder injury. At the close of his age 30 season, Tannehill has still yet to convince not only the general public that he can be a franchise passer, but also the Dolphins. With a potential overhaul coming from top to bottom from within the Miami organization, sticking with Tannehill will be a major decision that has to be made. Tannehill still has two years left on his current deal but would cost Miami $13.4M in dead money (while saving them $13.2M in the process) if the current or potentially new regime would prefer to move on.

According to the Miami Herald, the Dolphins are prepared to move on from Ryan Tannehill after this season rather than pay him the $19 million he's owed over the next two years.

None of Tannehill's 2019-2020 scheduled pay is guaranteed, so it will be an easy cord to cut. By releasing or trading Tannehill, the Fins would save $13.2 million under the 2019 salary cap, or $18.7 million if he's designated a post-June 1 cut. Amid reports the front office will also be cleaned out, the Dolphins' organization appears headed for a near-full overhaul this offseason.

Dolphins coach Adam Gase said Ryan Tannehill will start Week 17.

With Tannehill's future in some question, there was a thought the Dolphins would see what they have in David Fales. The answer is almost certainly not much, and Gase said he wants to play to win. That makes sense with his job possibly on the line. Even though he will play, Tannehill will not be a fantasy option in Buffalo.

Ryan Tannehill completed 15-of-22 passes for 146 yards, one touchdown, one interception, and three rushes for 22 yards in the Dolphins' Week 16 loss to the Jaguars.

Favored at home, the Dolphins choked this one away with playoff hopes remaining. They are now officially eliminated. Tannehill's worst pass came on a double-clutch, telegraphed interception that Jaguars WLB Telvin Smith easily brought back to the house. The Dolphins' pass protection also failed, allowing three sacks and seven hits among only 25 Tannehill dropbacks. Week 17 at Buffalo may be Adam Gase's final game as Miami's head coach.

Ryan Tannehill (shoulder, ankle) was limited at Wednesday's practice.

The shoulder and ankle issues are both existing injuries. Tannehill took a beating against the Vikings, getting sacked nine times for a loss of 71 yards. He's not a streaming option for Week 16 against Jacksonville.

Ryan Tannehill completed 11-of-24 passes for 108 yards in the Dolphins' Week 15 loss to the Vikings, losing 71 yards on nine sacks.

Tannehill and Miami’s offense did next to nothing in this one. The quarterback completed just 6-of-12 passes for a measly 52 yards in the first half, and Miami was out-gained 252 yards to 108 before the break. A 75-yard touchdown run by Kalen Ballage on the first play of the third quarter got Miami back in the game, but Tannehill could not take advantage. Under almost constant pressure in the second half, Tannehill was erratic with his ball placement, and he sailed a deep attempt well over the head of Kenny Stills late in the third quarter. Following that big run, Miami managed just 10 yards of total offense. Tannehill’s game can be boiled down to the two sacks he took on fourth down in the fourth quarter. With the Jaguars up next, Tannehill will not be a viable fantasy option in the fantasy Super Bowl.

Coach Adam Gase confirmed Ryan Tannehill (ankle) is fine and will start Week 15 against the Vikings.

Tannehill missed a bit of time in the Miami Miracle win over the Patriots last week and appeared a bit hobbled at times. But he's good enough to go against the Vikings with the 7-6 Fins still in the playoff hunt. Even so, Tannehill will not be a recommended fantasy play at Minnesota this Sunday.
Wed, Dec 12, 2018 02:27:00 PM

Dolphins coach Adam Gase said Ryan Tannehill (ankle) is "sore" but "walking around."

Tannehill missed time in Miami's win over the Patriots because of an ankle injury and was clearly hobbled after he returned. It sounds like that remains the case on Monday, but Gase did not seem concerned about his quarterback's availability for this week's matchup with the Vikings. Even coming off back-to-back three-touchdown games, Tannehill will not be an exciting streamer in that spot.

Ryan Tannehill completed 14-of-19 passes for 265 yards and three touchdowns in Miami's Week 14 upset of New England.

He added one rush for 13 yards. Tannehill suffered a painful ankle injury late in the second quarter and was briefly replaced by Brock Osweiler. Tannehill returned to play the entire second half despite hobbling around the field in noticeable discomfort. He hit Kenny Stills and Brice Butler for touchdowns and was credited with No. 3 on Kenyan Drake's last-play lateral score in Miami's 34-33 upset victory. Expect Tannehill to miss practice time ahead of Week 15's showdown at Minnesota.

Ryan Tannehill completed 16-of-24 passes for 137 yards, three touchdowns, and an interception in the Dolphins' Week 13 win over the Bills.

Despite taking some big hits, Tannehill started out this game hot, completing 4-of-5 passes for 43 yards and a touchdown on the opening drive. He mostly struggled the rest of the first half, but he was able to take advantage of a Bills turnover just before the break, finding Kenyan Drake in the flat for a three-yard score. Miami’s offense did absolutely nothing in the third quarter, and Tannehill followed up a Josh Allen interception with one of his own. He quickly bounced back, however, leading a touchdown drive to give Miami the lead. He capped that march with a dangerous throw to the back of the end zone, but Kenny Stills bailed him out with a great play. This was not a great game from Tannehill, but he did enough for the win. He will be a weak two-quarterback league option next week against the Patriots.

Ryan Tannehill completed 17-of-25 passes for 204 yards and two touchdowns in the Dolphins' 27-24, Week 12 loss to the Colts.

Making his first start since Week 5, Tannehill added three rushes for 14 additional yards. The good news is that Tannehill's 33-yard first quarter strike to Kenyan Drake was the Dolphins' first offensive touchdown in 27 possessions. The bad news is, coach Adam Gase treated Tannehill like he was Sam Darnold in crunch time, calling unimaginative, horizontal plays as the Dolphins watched a 24-14 lead disappear. Tannehill's second score was a 74-yard jump ball against CB Pierre Desir where Leonte Carroo did most of the work. Although better than Brock Osweiler, Tannehill is one of the league's most limited regular starters. He will struggle for QB2 value in Week 13 against the Bills.

Ryan Tannehill (shoulder) wasn't listed on the Dolphins' final injury report for Week 12 against the Colts.

Tannehill will be back under center this week after missing the last five games with a right shoulder injury. His return pushes Brock Osweiler back to the bench. Tannehill is best viewed as a back-end QB2 against Indy.

Ryan Tannehill (shoulder) was limited at Wednesday's practice.

Tannehill is still dealing with some soreness, but he's going to start Sunday's game with the Colts. Tannehill's return isn't much of an upgrade to Miami's offense.
Wed, Nov 21, 2018 04:12:00 PM

Ryan Tannehill admits he is still experiencing pain in his shoulder but believes he can make "all the throws."

"I feel really good," Tannehill claimed. "Not quite 100 percent, but I feel confident and have made all the throws I’m going to need to make over the course of a game." It doesn't sound like Tannehill is particularly close to 100 percent after experiencing a setback a few weeks ago, but the Dolphins are desperate to move on from Brock Osweiler and keep their faint playoff hopes alive. Tannehill will be a barely-there QB2 against the Colts. Daily Slant: It's safe to say Tannehill will be low-owned in DFS this week, and for good reason: He's coming off injury without two of his receivers. For his price, though, he does have some tournament appeal as he'll likely be playing from behind as nine point underdogs in Indy. If he can rush for a score and throw for one or two TD's, he could be a GPP winner at miniscule ownership stacked with a couple of his also very cheap WR's.

Ryan Tannehill (shoulder) will return as Dolphins starter for Week 12 against the Colts.

It will be Tannehill's first start since Week 5. The Dolphins have lost Albert Wilson and Jakeem Grant in the interim but regained DeVante Parker. Brock Osweiler's play has predictably fallen off a cliff after some initial competence, so Tannehill's return will be quite welcome as the Dolphins try to stay alive in the AFC playoff race. Managing games before going down, Tannehill will be a fringe QB2 with his banged up supporting cast.
