Ryan Tannehill said he has to "make a big jump" this season.
Tannehill is 15-17 through two NFL seasons and hasn't taken the Dolphins to the playoffs. There's plenty of reason to think he can take a significant step forward this season. Seemingly overmatched Mike Sherman is out and creative Bill Lazor is in as offensive coordinator. Expect better offensive balance, efficiency and usage of Mike Wallace. Perhaps more importantly, Branden Albert was signed to stabilize a line that let Tannehill get sacked a league-high 58 times last season. Apr 10 - 9:06 AM

A source told CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora that Ryan Tannehill may lack job security entering 2014.

Unbelievable. Tannehill is the least of the Dolphins' problems and very arguably their biggest strength, so the notion of him losing his job is yet another reminder of the continued dysfunction in Miami. "(Coach Joe Philbin) definitely wants to push Tannehill more," said the source, who spoke to Philbin about his quarterbacks, "and if he doesn't see improvement he said he might go to (Matt) Moore at some point. He definitely has a lot of faith in Moore, and they're paying him a lot of money." This is a team that should be looking to prop up Tannehill with significant offensive line upgrades, not put his job on the line in favor of a journeyman-type career backup in Moore. Tannehill absorbed a league-high 58 sacks in 2013. This has been a troubling offseason in Miami, to say the least.

Ryan Tannehill was just 16-of-64 on passes thrown 20 yards or more in 2013.

Tannehill's 25.0 completion percentage on those throws was second-to-last among qualifiers, better than only Joe Flacco. It's a glaring hole in his game. Tannehill finished his second NFL season 10th in passing yards (3,913) and tied for 12th in touchdowns (24), but was 27th in yards per attempt (6.66). He simply never got on the same page with burner Mike Wallace. "I should have had 15 or 20 more touchdowns. And that's being modest," Wallace said. "If you press me, you have no shot to cover me." This duo has an excellent chance to be more efficient in 2014 with Mike Sherman out and Bill Lazor in at offensive coordinator. Lazor played a major role in the progress of Nick Foles in Philly.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport hears that Ryan Tannehill lost confidence in OC Mike Sherman.

Fantasy owners and media apparently weren't the only ones frustrated by Sherman this season. He consistently abandoned the running game too early, used Mike Wallace as a decoy far too often and got Tannehill sacked a league-leading 58 times (10 more than any other quarterback). Joe Philbin appears safe for now, but a new offensive coordinator could be in the cards for Miami.

Ryan Tannehill completed 20-of-40 passes for 204 yards, one touchdown, and three interceptions in Sunday's Week 17 loss to the Jets.

Tannehill was playing without security blanket Brian Hartline (knee) for the majority of the game, but it was an embarrassing performance from Miami's offense. With the loss, the Dolphins are eliminated from playoff contention. Tannehill's second NFL season ends with 3,913 passing yards, 24 touchdowns, and 17 interceptions. He was sacked an NFL-high 59 times and never seemed to get on the same page with Mike Wallace. Tannehill should continue to progress in the offseason, but will remain a fantasy QB2 in 2014.

Ryan Tannehill (knee) is practicing in full for Week 17.

Tannehill briefly departed last Sunday's miserable loss to the Bills, but will be under center against the Jets. The Dolphins' sieve-like offensive line is going to have a hard time keeping Tannehill upright against the Jets' stout pass rush.

Ryan Tannehill (knee) practiced on Tuesday.

This confirms that Tannehill didn't sustain any damage to his knee when Kyle Williams dragged him down late in the Week 16 loss. Owners playing into Week 17 can fully expect a bounce-back performance in a home game against the Jets Sunday. The entire Dolphins team was sleepwalking at the Ralph.

Ryan Tannehill will undergo testing on his banged-up knee on Monday.

Tannehill only exited Sunday's game briefly, so the tests will likely be precautionary. NFL Network's Albert Breer confirms the Dolphins believe Tannehill's injury is "minor." He's very likely to start in Week 17 against the Jets.
Sun, Dec 22, 2013 10:17:00 PM

Ryan Tannehill completed 10-of-27 passes for 82 yards with no touchdowns or interceptions in Sunday's ugly 19-0 Week 16 loss at Buffalo.

The Dolphins never even got off the bus. Coming off three straight wins against the Steelers, Jets and Patriots, they were primed for a letdown at the Ralph and it happened. The offensive line was especially atrocious, giving up seven sacks and countless hurries. It's a step back for the entire team, not just Tannehill -- who did briefly leave the game with an apparent knee injury. The Dolphins will be playing for their playoff lives in Week 17 against the Jets.

Ryan Tannehill left Sunday's Week 15 game at Buffalo with an apparent leg injury, but quickly returned.

Tannehill got dragged down by Kyle Williams for the Bills' sixth sack of the day. On the way, his legs got trapped underneath him. The second-year quarterback hobbled off the field slowly and was replaced by Matt Moore for the rest of that series. After a Bills field goal, Tannehill came back onto the field.
Sun, Dec 22, 2013 03:30:00 PM

Ryan Tannehill completed 25-of-37 passes for 312 yards and three touchdowns in Miami's 24-20, Week 15 win over the Patriots.

Tannehill under-threw yet another deep ball to Mike Wallace, but spent most of his day converting big throw after big throw in a game the Dolphins absolutely had to win. He even hooked up with Wallace for a 39-yard score, finding his No. 1 receiver six times for 105 yards overall. Tannehill took four sacks, but got rid of the ball extremely quickly, largely mitigating the Patriots' pass rush and the Dolphins' protection woes. Having now surpassed 300 yards passing in three of his past four games, Tannehill has a juicy Week 16 matchup with the Bills.
Sun, Dec 15, 2013 04:09:00 PM

Ryan Tannehill is averaging 33.7 rushing yards per game over the last four weeks.

Tannehill broke off a 48-yard run off a read-option in Week 14, highlighting the former college wideout's underrated athleticism. However, most of his rushing yards come off scrambles, not designed runs. Still, Tannehill's running ability is a little boost to owners that have successfully been starting him as a QB2 lately. Over the last month, he's fantasy's No. 7 quarterback.
Tue, Dec 10, 2013 08:59:00 AM

Ryan Tannehill completed 20-of-33 passes for 200 yards with three touchdowns and one interception in Sunday's Week 14 win at Pittsburgh.

Despite snowy conditions and a slick field, Tannehill put on a show with both his arm and his legs (two runs for 56 yards). He benefited from the tackle-breaking ability of Charles Clay, but also showed fine accuracy and reading ability while not forcing throws. Tannehill now has five touchdowns in the last two weeks and is averaging 267.6 yards across the last five weeks. He'll be a QB2 at home against the Patriots in Week 15.
Sun, Dec 8, 2013 06:17:00 PM

Ryan Tannehill is on the Week 14 injury report with a right (throwing) thumb issue, but is practicing in full.

You never like to see a quarterback listed with his throwing hand, but the fact that Tannehill is practicing in full means the issue shouldn't affect him against the Steelers. Tannehill is a mid-range QB2 for the first week of the fantasy playoffs.
Thu, Dec 5, 2013 06:17:00 PM

Ryan Tannehill completed 28-of-43 passes for 331 yards, two touchdowns, and an interception in Sunday's Week 13 win over the Jets.

He added three carries for 22 yards. Tannehill threw a 31-yard touchdown on a slant to Brian Hartline in the third quarter and later connected with Mike Wallace from 28 yards out. He did a better job of going through his progressions this week and not locking onto his primary reads, allowing Wallace, Hartline, and Charles Clay to all go over 80 yards receiving. Tannehill is on pace for 4,152 yards, 23 touchdowns, and 17 interceptions through 12 games. He'll remain a QB2 in Week 14 against the Steelers.
