Ryan Tannehill completed 17-of-23 passes for 289 yards and three touchdowns in the Dolphins' 28-20, Week 3 win over the Raiders, adding three carries for 26 additional yards.
Tannehill could have had an even bigger day, but 52 of the Dolphins' 332 passing yards came from Albert Wilson on a trick play touchdown. Tannehill was making tight-window throws all afternoon, with the highlight his 34-yard touchdown strike to Kenny Stills in the second quarter. Stills got behind Marcus Gilchrist in the end zone and Tannehill put it where only Stills could catch it. Tannehill has picked up where he left off on his Adam Gase-fueled 2016, reviving the Dolphins' offense in the process. They've had the looks of a poor man's Chiefs through three games. Emphasis on poor man's. Tannehill will be put to the test in Week 4, when the Dolphins travel to New England. Like 2017, the Pats' defense is off to a slow start. Sep 23 - 4:39 PM

Ryan Tannehill was taken off the Week 3 injury report.

Tannehill was listed with knee/ankle injures this week but didn't miss any practice time. Playing against a Raiders secondary that's been better than expected, Tannehill is a low-ceiling QB2 for Week 3.
Sep 21 - 8:49 PM

Ryan Tannehill is listed on the Week 3 injury report with knee and ankle injuries.

He's practicing in full, but it's notable with Tannehill's ACL history. Tannehill has played better than expected to open the year, though it's come against two of the league's worst defenses. He's not on the Week 3 streaming radar.
Sep 19 - 7:26 PM

Ryan Tannehill completed 17-of-23 passes for 168 yards and two touchdowns in the Dolphins' Week 2 win over the Jets.

He also rushed eight times for 44 yards. Tannehill's best throw of the day was a laser 19-yard score to AJ Derby, and his other touchdown went to Albert Wilson on a catch and run. Tannehill's pass attempt totals through two games are 28 and 23 in consecutive wins over the Titans and Jets. The Dolphins have another very winnable game on deck versus the Raiders in Miami. Being used as a low-volume game manager, Tannehill will be a low-ceiling QB2 in Week 3.
Sep 16 - 4:09 PM

Ryan Tannehill completed 20-of-28 passes for 230 yards, two touchdowns, and two interceptions in the Dolphins' Week 1 win over the Titans.

He rushed four times for four yards. Tannehill was used as a game manager, but his fantasy output was spiked by a 75-yard touchdown bomb to Kenny Stills. Even if Tannnehill's ceiling is low, he maintains high-end two-quarterback-league potential. He'll be a two-QB-league starter in Week 2 at the Jets.
Sep 9 - 8:39 PM

Ryan Tannehill completed 11-of-16 passes for 115 yards and a touchdown and added one rush for no yards Saturday in the Dolphins’ third preseason game against Baltimore.

He played the entire first half and was sacked twice for a loss of 14 yards. Tannehill got off to an extremely slow start as the Fins went three-and-out on two of their first three drives. He also committed a pair of fumbles, though neither resulted in turnovers. Tannehill did lead a touchdown drive, his first of the preseason, during the second quarter. The 30-year-old hooked up with Danny Amendola for a 16-yard touchdown to close out the eight-play, 75-yard drive. Coming off a torn ACL that sidelined him for all of 2017, Tannehill enters the season as a shaky QB2 in fantasy.
Aug 25 - 10:27 PM

Ryan Tannehill (knee) still has confidence in his mobility.

"I feel like I am moving well, able to escape, able to get upfield when the window is there," Tannehill said of his offseason practices. "It’s still going to be a weapon for me. When defenses present an open spot, we have to take advantage of it with my legs." Limited to 13 games by his knee over the past two years, Tannehill turns 30 this July. His last full season, 2015, he rushed the ball just 32 times. That should probably be the over/under for his 2018 attempts.
Jun 5 - 3:28 PM

Ryan Tannehill (knee) said he has been fully cleared.

"I’m clear to play football, so whatever that entails I can do it," he said. "Honestly, at this point, it’s just, 'Let it rip.'" Tannehill has been practicing without a brace during OTAs, but he plans to wear one during the regular season.
May 24 - 9:22 AM

Ryan Tannehill (knee) is practicing without a brace in OTAs.

Doing "everything" in OTAs, Tannehill is either fully recovered or almost there. Practicing without a brace is a change from last offseason, where Tannehill wore one in every practice in an effort to get used to it for the regular season. The brace did not stop Tannehill from re-injuring his ACL. Now surgically-repaired, Tannehill's knee should be stronger than it was last summer.
May 22 - 5:45 PM

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Ryan Tannehill (knee) will "do everything" during OTAs.

The Miami Herald had a similar report last week. Near full health if not already there, Tannehill should have a full offseason to get ready for his first game action since December of 2016.
May 22 - 8:32 AM

The Miami Herald reports Ryan Tannehill (knee) is expected to have "little or no limitations" in OTAs.

That's per "Dolphins sources." Coach Adam Gase has previously said that Tannehill would be ready. The Dolphins flirted with taking a quarterback in the early rounds of April's draft but ultimately signed up for another year of the Tannehill show. Going on 30, Tannehill hasn't attempted a regular season pass since Dec. 11, 2016.
May 15 - 4:17 PM

NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reports the Dolphins have assured Ryan Tannehill (knee) he will start in 2018 even if they draft a quarterback in the first round.

Pelissero reports the Dolphins would consider moving up if a quarterback begins to slip, but the "smart money says they stand pat at 11 [and] take the best available defensive player." Miami was strongly linked with Oklahoma QB Baker Mayfield early in the draft process, but it looks like he will come off the board well before their pick, perhaps even No. 1 overall. Tannehill was having his best season as a pro before going down with a knee injury late in 2016, and that same knee caused him to miss all of 2017. With uncertainty about Tannehill's health and ability to be a top-flight quarterback, it makes sense for the Dolphins to grab one of the premier quarterbacks if they can.
Apr 26 - 12:12 PM

Dolphins coach Adam Gase said Ryan Tannehill (ACL) will be ready for OTAs.

After attempting to rehab the injury last offseason, Tannehill was forced to undergo surgery last August. The saga led to a lost season, but the surgery should ensure he is returning at close to full health. Although Gase has committed to Tannehill as his starter for this season, the Dolphins have been linked with a move for Baker Mayfield with the 11th overall pick.
Mar 27 - 8:06 AM

Ryan Tannehill has agreed to a restructured contract.

$16.7 million of Tannehill's $17.475 million base salary has been converted to a "signing bonus" that will be pro-rated over the final three years of his contract. It's a classic cap maneuver, one that teams come to regret if they do it too many times.
Mar 14 - 4:40 PM

Dolphins coach Adam Gase said Ryan Tannehill (knee) "is going to be our starting quarterback."

"And I don't see that changing anytime soon," Gase added. That said, the coach did not dismiss reports the Dolphins are considering a quarterback with the 11th overall pick, instead saying Tannehill will embrace the competition if someone else is brought in. Tannehill has not played since December of 2016 because of ACL injuries.
