Ryan Tannehill completed 20-of-30 passes for 285 yards and three touchdowns in the Dolphins' 31-24, Week 12 win over the 49ers.
It was one of the best-looking starts of Tannehill's career, with the caveat that it came against arguably the most talent-less defense of the 21st century. Tannehill would have gone over 300 yards had DeVante Parker been able to get both his feet in bounds on a pair of big plays, one of which would have been a touchdown. Tanne was dropping seeds into tight windows. The most encouraging aspect is that the performance came behind an offensive line missing three starters. Tanne faces a much stiffer Week 13 road test in the Ravens. He'll be a bottom-barrel QB2 for that one. Nov 27 - 5:02 PM

Ryan Tannehill completed 24-of-34 passes for 172 yards, two touchdowns, and one interception in the Dolphins' Week 11 win over the Rams.

It's an Alex Smith-ian stat line, but that's who Tannehill has become since the Dolphins changed their offensive philosophy six weeks back. Miami has now won five in a row and is in the thick of things at 6-4. Tannehill didn't do much of anything until late in the fourth quarter, hooking up with Jarvis Landry for a 10-yard touchdown, and then finding DeVante Parker on the next series for a nine-yard touchdown to overcome the 10-0 deficit and win the game. The interception earlier was his first in five games. Tannehill will be on the streaming map next week in a home date with the pathetic 49ers.
Nov 20 - 8:27 PM

Ryan Tannehill completed 17-of-24 passes for 240 yards and two touchdowns in the Dolphins' Week 10 win over the Chargers.

As has become the norm, Tannehill was not asked to do much, but he played one of his best games of the season. He consistently made good decisions on the simple throws and sprinkled in a few dimes. His 39-yard touchdown to Kenny Stills was a thing of beauty even with a defender in his face, he made a great throw on the move to set up a rushing touchdown, he made another nice throw to Damien Williams for his second score, and he hooked up with DeVante Parker for a 56-yard bomb on the game-tying, field-goal drive. Tannehill has settled into the Dolphins' run-heavy offense, and he easily outplayed Philip Rivers. Still, he does not have much fantasy upside in a game-manager role. He can be left on the wire for next week's matchup with the Rams.
Nov 13 - 7:21 PM

Ryan Tannehill completed 17-of-28 passes for 149 yards and one touchdown in the Dolphins' Week 9 win over the Jets.

Tannehill has become a full-blown game manager in this offense with Jay Ajayi taking over as the centerpiece. Tannehill has thrown just three touchdowns total over the past five games. He's at least taking care of the football, and Miami has won three-straight games on the back of Ajayi. Tannehill will be a bottom-barrel QB2/3 next week on the road at the Chargers.
Nov 6 - 4:41 PM

Dolphins OC Clyde Christensen said the coaching staff is encouraging Ryan Tannehill to run the ball more.

"It’s a hard teach; but I think coach (Adam) Gase has done a good job of just encouraging him. ‘Hey, you’re a good athlete. Don’t be afraid. One, two (seconds), pull that thing down and … you don’t understand how valuable your legs are in this whole thing," Christensen said. A former college receiver, Tannehill obviously has the ability to scramble, but his rushing numbers are down a bit compared to years past. Any rushing stats provide a nice boost to his fantasy stock.
Nov 4 - 9:51 AM

Ryan Tannehill completed 15-of-25 passes for 204 yards and one touchdown in the Dolphins' Week 7 win over the Bills.

Tannehill was thoroughly bad for much of the day. At one point he had been averaging about 4.0 yards per attempt. Tannehill was able to boost his stat line with a late, fourth-quarter 66-yard touchdown strike to Kenny Stills to put the game away. Tannehill was still able to play turnover-free football for the second week in a row and heads into the bye before taking on the Jets in Week 9. Tannehill has settled in as nothing more than a mid-range QB2.
Oct 23 - 5:09 PM

Ryan Tannehill completed 24-of-32 passes for 252 yards in the Dolphins' Week 6 win over the Steelers.

He didn't throw a touchdown or interception, though Tannehill had a short touchdown to TE Dominique Jones called back on a penalty. DeVante Parker also blatantly dropped one score. Tannehill played turnover-free ball and looked great handing the ball off to Jay Ajayi, who rumbled for 204 yards and two touchdowns. The Dolphins host the Bills in Week 7.
Oct 16 - 5:29 PM

Dolphins coach Adam Gase is blaming Ryan Tannehill's poor play on bad pass protection.

"We have 18 drop-back passes, and (Tannheill) is hit or sacked on nine of them," Gase said of Sunday's disaster. Tannehill's pass protection has certainly been abysmal, but neither Tannehill nor his coach seem to be making the proper adjustments. Tannehill isn't being sent on the move, and when he's in the pocket, he has seemingly zero feel for the rush. Tannehill's supporting cast is letting him down, but he's been part of the problem.
Oct 10 - 2:10 PM

Dolphins coach Adam Gase said Ryan Tannehill will be the starter "the rest of this season."

"He’s not coming out," Gase said. "You can ask me 100 times. He’s going to be in there the rest of this season." The crowd chanted for backup Matt Moore to get a shot in the 30-17 loss to the Titans Sunday, but Gase clearly has no intention to make a change. Tannehill has not been great, but he is not getting any help from his offensive line, defense, or playmakers. It is doubtful Moore would do any better, but a change might become necessary if the offensive struggles continue.
Oct 10 - 10:23 AM

Ryan Tannehill completed 12-of-18 passes for 191 yards with no touchdowns and two interceptions and was sacked six times for a loss of 42 yards Sunday in the Dolphins' Week 5 loss to the Titans.

Aside from two big plays—a 58-yard dumpoff to Damien Williams in the first half and a 50-yard dart to DeVante Parker in the third quarter—Tannehill’s Sunday was an unmitigated disaster. Tannehill looked like a deer in the headlights whenever the Titans brought pressure, which was often. His first interception wasn’t entirely his fault—Parker juggled a pass across the middle and essentially had the ball stolen from him by Jason McCourty. The second was a desperation heave late in the fourth quarter. Tannehill actually completed eight-of-10 passes after halftime but that didn’t stop the boo-birds from raining down on him. Even with Jarvis Landry and Parker at his disposal, Tannehill continues to accomplish nothing. We doubt it gets better for Tannehill next week against the Steelers.
Oct 9 - 5:21 PM

The Titans-Dolphins game set for Sunday at 1 PM ET is on track to play as scheduled.

Due to Hurricane Matthew ripping up the Atlantic Coast, there were concerns the game would have to be played elsewhere or pushed back. But South Florida miraculously appears to have dodged the worst part of the hurricane, paving way for the Dolphins and Titans to play a game Sunday afternoon.
Oct 7 - 10:06 AM

Sunday's Dolphins/Titans game in Miami could be moved or delayed because of Hurricane Matthew.

The Category 4 storm is bearing down on South Florida, but might not make a direct hit on Miami. The game could be delayed until Monday or Tuesday, or perhaps moved to a neutral site. Profootballtalk's Mike Florio reports the game is unlikely to be moved to Tennessee because of the competitive advantage it would create by giving the Titans a ninth home game.
Oct 6 - 3:15 PM

Ryan Tannehill completed 15-of-25 passes for 189 yards, one touchdown and one interception in Miami's 22-7, Week 4 loss to the Bengals.

He also lost a fumble. Tannehill tossed a 74-yard touchdown on the Dolphins' second play from scrimmage and then proceeded to be stunningly terrible. Tannehill was certainly disadvantaged by awful offensive line play, but played with the pocket awareness of a seventh-round rookie. It was as if Tannehill was completely incapable of feeling pressure. Coach Adam Gase did a bafflingly-poor job of rectifying the situation with rollouts, etc., but Tannehill simply has to be better five years into his career. He'll be flirting with a benching if he continues to play like this. Tannehill will be a last-gasp QB2 against the Titans in Week 5.
Sep 29 - 11:18 PM

Ryan Tannehill completed 25-of-39 passes for 319 yards, three touchdowns, and two interceptions in Miami's Week 3 overtime win over the Browns.

Tannehill didn't play to his stat line, throwing an interception on the opening drive and a pick-six later in the first half. He also lost a fumble at the end of the fourth quarter, but the Browns missed the game-winning field goal. Tannehill shredded a Joe Haden-less secondary when he had time, getting all of Jarvis Landry, DeVante Parker, and Kenny Stills involved. Despite five touchdowns over his last two games, Tannehill is just a QB2 for Week 4 against the Bengals.
Sep 25 - 4:54 PM

Ryan Tannehill completed 32-of-45 passes for 389 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions in Miami's 31-24, Week 2 loss to the Patriots.

He added six carries for 35 additional yards. 20 minutes into the game, Tannehill was 1-for-4 for four yards. At one point in the second half, he was 20-for-21, with the incompletion being a throwaway. We got the full Tannehill experience, including piling up yardage after the opposing team eased off the throttle. The Pats entered halftime up 24-3, and understandably laid back a bit after the break. Odd game flow or not, Tannehill worked his connection with Jarvis Landry to perfection, and seemed on the same page with sophomore playmaker DeVante Parker. Tannehill will be a top-15 Week 3 play against the Browns' barely-there defense.
