Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill posts first 300-yard performance


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/14/2014) Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill surpassed the 300-yard threshold for the first time this season in Sunday's 41-13 defeat to the Patriots in Week 15.

Tannehill's only touchdown pass came on a desperation 32-yard pass to Mike Wallace, who made an acrobatic catch in the end zone with five seconds remaining in the first half. He was picked off by Duron Harmon in the second quarter and Patrick Chung in the third quarter. Tannehill completed 29 of 47 passes for a season-high 346 yards with one touchdown and two interceptions. He rushed for 21 yards on three carries.

Tannehill has passed for 3,390 yards with 22 touchdowns and 11 interceptions. He has two games left to surpass the 4,000-yard mark for the first time in his three-year career.

Miami will face Minnesota at home in Week 16.


Ryan Tannehill fading at the wrong time


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/7/2014) Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill posted another subpar effort in Week 14, in a 28-13 loss to the Ravens.

Tannehill had just 15 Fantasy points in Sunday's game, though he avoided any sort of mistakes in the loss. He just did little of note as the Dolphins offense fell completely silent after a few strong early drives. He picked up 227 yards though the air in the game, but rushed for just 6 on two carries, his fifth straight game with fewer than 20 rushing yards.

From Week 4 to Week 9, Tannehill averaged 24.0 Fantasy points per game, a good chunk of which came with his legs, as he averaged 45.4 yards per game on the ground. In five games since, he has just 50 rushing yards total, and is averaging 17.6 Fantasy points per game.

Tannehill is a solid enough passer, but the Dolphins really found another level of success when he was involved as a runner. With teams slowing him down on the ground, Fantasy owners should probably steer clear of Tannehill down the stretch. 


Dolphins' Ryan Tannehill fails to impress Sunday


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(12/7/2014) Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill completed 23 of his 33 pass attempts for 227 yards during a 28-13 loss to the Ravens Sunday.

Tannehill’s lone touchdown came on a 3-yard pass to wide receiver Brian Hartline. The 227 passing yards helped Tannehill surpass 10,000 passing yards for his career. He also added 6 rushing yards on two attempts. Tannehill has not thrown for more than 300 yards in any game this season.

The Dolphins play at New England Week 15.


Ryan Tannehill struggles in lackluster victory


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/1/2014) Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill was held without a touchdown for the first time this season in Monday's 16-13 win at the Jets. Tannehill completed 25 of 35 throws for 235 yards with an interception, and he ran four times for 13 yards.

Tannehill and wideout Mike Wallace failed to hook up on two potential touchdowns. One was a wildly inaccurate throw, the other a bad drop. Tannehill got picked off in the third quarter when running back Lamar Miller couldn't handle a low throw and the ball ricocheted to cornerback Darrin Walls.

Tannehill also threw a pass directly at linebacker Calvin Pace, but Pace couldn't catch it. Tannehill will try to get back on track Week 14 against the Ravens.


Ryan Tanehill keeps rolling, even in loss


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11/23/2014) Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill put together arguably the finest performance of his career in Week 12, in a 39-36 loss to the Broncos.

Tannehill found the end zone for the first time all season on the ground, and added three more through the air, en route to a 32-point Fantasy game that stands as his second best of the season. However, he also delivered a crushing late interception as the Broncos worked their way back for the win.

This might have been the most promising performance of Tannehill's career, as he was effective in the red zone and made plays with his arm and his legs. He heads into a solid matchup against the Jets in Week 13 riding high, and could be a solid Fantasy play against a defense that ranks dead last against quarterbacks. 


Dolphins' Ryan Tannehill accounts for four touchdowns in loss


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(11/23/2014) Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill had one of his better games of the season in Week 12, accounting for four touchdowns in a 39-36 loss to Denver.

Tannehill completed 26 of his 36 pass attempts for 228 yards and threw for three touchdowns. He also added a rushing score which was his first of the season and the first time he scored four touchdowns in a game this season. He added 15 rushing yards on four attempts.

Tannehill connected with rookie wide receiver Jarvis Landry on two of his passing touchdowns, with Mike Wallace also catching a touchdown from Tannehill. The Dolphins next Monday against the Jets.


Dolphins list lengthy injury report for Week 12 at Denver


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11/21/2014) The Dolphins listed a lengthy injury report for Week 12 at Denver.

Miami will be without the services of Jonathan Freeny after missing practice the entire week because of a hamstring injury. The team also labeled Charles Clay (knee, hamstring) and Cortland Finnegan (ankle) as doubtful. Daryn Colledge (back) and Lamar Miller (shoulder, knee) were deemed questionable.

Meanwhile, the following players were ruled as probable: Jarvis Landry (shoulder), Koa Misi (ankle), Mike Pouncey (hip), Kelvin Sheppard (hip, groin), Ryan Tannehill (left shoulder), Jordan Tripp (chest), Mike Wallace (calf) and Jimmy Wilson (hamstring).


Dolphins' Ryan Tannehill on new offense: I think I turned a corner


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11/14/2014) Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill told the NFL Network following a 22-9 victory over Buffalo in Week 11 that he's finally starting to feel comfortable in Miami's new offense.

"I definitely think I have been playing better. It took me a little while to get comfortable in the offense. The guys around me have really stepped up and played well," Tannehill said, per the Miami Herald. "We were West Coast last year, so a completely different system. All kinds of zone reads. Spreading things out. A lot of new concepts. But it's been a lot of fun. I feel great [in this system]. When I went to London, I took a step back and said make plays, have fun and stop thinking so much. I think I turned a corner."

Tannehill compiled 240 yards through the air while completing 26 of 34 passes. He added two touchdowns, no interceptions and 17 rushing yards in the win. He had eight touchdowns and five interceptions through his first six games. Over his last five, he has nine touchdowns and two interceptions.


Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill tosses two scores Thursday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(11/13/2014) Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill threw for two scores Thursday against the Bills.

Tannehill completed 26 of 34 passes for 240 yards. He also finished with 17 rushing yards. The game was mostly a defensive struggle early, as neither team could muster a touchdown in the first half. Tannehill finally broke that streak with 2:25 left in the third quarter. Tannehill hit Brandon Gibson on a 7 yard pass, giving the team a one point lead. Tannehill wouldn't stop there, throwing an 8 yard score to Jarvis Landry in the fourth quarter.

Tannehill will take on the Broncos Week 12. 


Lamar Miller, Ryan Tannehill good to go for Dolphins


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(11/13/2014) The Dolphins will have quarterback Ryan Tannehill and running back Lamar Miller Week 11 against the Bills. 

Tannehill was listed as probable coming into the contest due to ankle and shoulder issues. Miller was also probable due to a shoulder injury.

Seven probables pepper Dolphins injury report for Thursday


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

The others are defensive linemen Dion Jordan (hamstring) and tackle Jared Odrick (hip), linebacker Koa Misi (ankle), safety Jimmy Wilson (hamstring), guard Mike Pouncey (hip) and running back Lamar Miller (shoulder).

Report: Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill set to play against Bills


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11/12/2014) Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill has been limited in practice this week with shoulder and ankle ailments, but a source has told the Miami Herald that he will "no doubt" be active Thursday night against Buffalo.

Tannehill is coming off a mediocre performance in a loss to Detroit in which he completed 27 of 38 passes for 207 yards, one touchdown and one interception.


Shoulder, ankle injuries limit Ryan Tannehill on Monday


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(11/10/2014) Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill was limited in Monday's practice by injuries to his shoulder and ankle. He's scheduled to take on the Bills on Thursday Night Football.

Ryan Tannehill held in check in worst showing yet


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11/9/2014) Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill was completely held in check on the ground in Week 10 against the Lions, so it should come as little surprise that it also resulted in his worst Fantasy showing of the season in a loss.

Tannehill has ridden his legs to the best stretch of his career heading into Sunday's game, but he couldn't shake loose against a tough Lions' defense. He had just one run for 0 yards Sunday, after 45.4 yards per game on the ground in his previous five games. Coupled with a subpart game through the air, and Tannehill ended up with just 12 Fantasy points Sunday, his lowest total yet.

Tannehill is just a so-so passer at this point in his career, but the Dolphins had found success getting him moving recently. His struggles Sunday might just be the result of a Lions' defense that dominates at the line of scrimmage, so we're not quite ready to give up on Tannehill.

However, his Week 11 matchup, Buffalo, also pushes opposing offensive lines around, and Tannehill has struggled against them in his career. Losing starting left tackle Branden Albert won't help, so consider Tannehill a risky play against a Bills defense that limited him to 14 Fantasy points in their last matchup. 


Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill held to 215 yards vs. Detroit


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11/9/2014) Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill worked past an ankle issue along with a cut on his throwing hand in a 20-16 defeat to the Lions at Ford Field in Week 10.

Tannehill was picked off by James Ihedigbo late in the second quarter, but got back on track after halftime. After a blocked field goal that gave Miami the ball at the 3-yard line, the Dolphins used Mike Wallace on an end-around which turned out to be a 3-yard swing pass for a touchdown for Tannehill in the third quarter.

Tannehill compiled 215 yards through the air while completing 26 of 37 passes. He added a touchdown and an interception, registering a 82.6 passer rating. He was sacked three times and had two carries for no gain.

Tannehill has 2,122 passing yards with 15 touchdowns and seven interceptions this season. He'll look to bounce back on short rest Thursday night at home against the Bills.


Ryan Tannehill running into toughest matchup yet


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11/5/2014) Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill is riding the best stretch of his NFL career heading into Week 10, but this Sunday's matchup with the Lions might be his toughest challenge yet.

Tannehill is averaging 24.0 Fantasy points per game over the last five games, a stretch that has coincided with an increased reliance on his rushing abilities. He is averaging 45.4 yards per game on the ground in this stretch but will be tested by a Lions defense that has yet to allow 20 yards rushing in a game to a quarterback.

The Lions enter the game as the league's top defense by a number of measures, and that includes Fantasy points allowed to opposing quarterbacks. They are surrendering just 13.5 Fantasy points per game through eight games, with Drew Brees in Week 7 and Cam Newton in Week 2 the only ones to reach 20 Fantasy points against them.

If Tannehill is a legitimate Fantasy stud, we could find out this weekend. If he can find success running the ball against this ferocious Lions' front, there won't be much room to doubt him any more. However, you might have other options with better matchups this week, so consider Tannehill a low-end starter against this defense. 


Ryan Tannehill still running to success


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11/2/2014) Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill bounced back from a subpar performance in Week 8, as he tore the Chargers apart in a 37-0 win in Week 9.

Tannehill put together the finest performance of his season Sunday, and he once again did it with the help of his legs. Tannehill rushed for 47 yards on just four carries, his fourth straight game with 40-plus yards on the ground, and used that to open things up in the passing game. He racked up 33 Fantasy points in the win, and peaked with a 21-yard touchdown pass in the third quarter that was set up by the threat of him running.

Tannehill had just 18 yards on eight carries through three games, and was averaging just 15.0 Fantasy points per game in that span. Since Week 4, he is averaging 24.0 Fantasy points and 44.2 rushing yards per game. Now that the Dolphins' coaching staff has figured out how to use him, Tannehill has to be considered a solid starting Fantasy option, even in Week 10 against a tough Lions' defense. 


Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill scores three times in blowout win


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11/2/2014) After a disappointing outing the previous week against Jacksonville, Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill got back on track with an impressive performance, firing three touchdown passes and leading his team to a Week 9 victory over the Chargers at Sun Life Stadium.

Tannehill got off to a fast start, hooking up with Charles Clay for a 6-yard touchdown on the opening drive of the game. On the opening drive of the third quarter, he found Rishard Matthews for a 21-yard touchdown strike. He connected with Jarvis Landry for a 14-yard strike in the third quarter to give his team a 37-point lead in the third quarter. With the game well in hand, the team sat him out in the fourth quarter for backup Matt Moore.

Tannehill compiled 208 of his 288 passing yards in the first half. He completed 24 of 34 pass attempts. with three touchdowns and no interceptions, registering a 125.6 passer rating in a 37-0 victory. It's the second time in his career that he's thrown for three touchdowns without an interception. He rushed for 47 yards on four attempts. He has rushed for 45-plus yards in each of his last four games.

He'll look to keep rolling Week 9 at Detroit.


QB Tannehill does enough to lift Dolphins past Jaguars


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/26/2014) Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill was held under 200 passing yards in a comfortable 27-13 victory over Jacksonville in Week 8.

Tannehill hooked up with Rishard Matthews for a 3-yard strike late in the third quarter. He had another chance of scoring but was picked off by J.T. Thomas on a pass intended to Matthews in the end zone.

Tannehill compiled 196 yards through the air while completing 16 of 29 passes. He added a touchdown and an interception, registering a 73.3 passer rating. He also broke for a 30-yard run for the third consecutive game, becoming the first quarterback to reach that mark since Michael Vick in 2004. He was sacked three times and finished with 48 yards on five carries in a 27-13 victory.

Miami will take on the Chargers at home in Week 9.


Ryan Tannehill's rushing ability still noteworthy


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10/26/2014) Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill's performance in Week 8 against the Jaguars got the job done, but it still has to be viewed as a disappointment given how well he had been playing before this.

Tannehill entered Week 8 with three straight games of at least 20 Fantasy points under his belt, but stumbled to just 15 points Sunday. One promising sign, however, was the continued reliance on Tannehill's legs, as he racked up 49 yards on the ground. He had a long run of 30 yards, becoming the first quarterback since Michael Vick in 2004 to have runs of 30-plus yards in three straight games.

Tannehill is a strong athlete who has come into his own as a weapon in the running game in recent weeks, which is enough to continue making him a viable Fantasy option. He probably won't throw the ball well enough to be a must-start option, but Tannehill is worth owning at least in two-QB leagues. 


Dolphins relatively healthy entering Week 8 at Jacksonville


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/24/2014) The Dolphins enter Week 8 at Jacksonville relatively healthy despite having 14 players on the final injury report for Sunday's game.

Jimmy Wilson (hamstring) was the only player that was unable to practice all week. He's been ruled doubtful for the game. Samson Satele (hamstring) was a limited participant in practice all week and was labeled questionable.

Meanwhile, Branden Albert (elbow), Charles Clay (knee), John Denney (knee), Cortland Finnegan (neck), Brandon Gibson (hamstring), Brian Hartline (finger), Lamar Miller (knee), Koa Misi (ankle), Shelley Smith (knee), Ryan Tannehill (ankle), Dallas Thomas (shoulder) and Philip Wheeler (shoulder, thumb) were all deemed probable.


Ryan Tannehill a Week 8 sleeper


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/23/2014) Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill is still widely available (owned in just 68 percent of CBSSports.com leagues) for Week 8 at Jacksonville. That's surprising considering his production over his past three games. Aided in part by an increased freedom to run the ball, Tannehill has averaged 24.0 Fantasy points per game during that stretch. For the season, Philip Rivers is averaging 25.0 Fantasy points per game.

Of course, Tannehill has benefited from a run of 30 or more yards the past two weeks, and that probably shouldn't be the expectation for him every week. But with Lamar Miller the only running game the Dolphins have, their quarterback has become more of a focal point on offense, throwing for two scores in four of six games this season.

For all their shortcomings offensively, the Jaguars have been pretty tough on defense the past three weeks, but they still rank only 30th against the pass, allowing 280.1 yards per game. Understandably, then, Jamey Eisenberg and Dave Richard both love Tannehill as a sleeper this week, ranking him 11th among quarterbacks, ahead of notables Matthew Stafford, Cam Newton and Nick Foles.


Waiver wire thin for quarterbacks this week


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10/21/2014) With an eye on Week 8 and beyond, Jamey Eisenberg tabbed his top quarterbacks on the waiver wire Tuesday, headlined by the Dolphins' Ryan Tannehill, who is owned in just 43 percent of CBSSports.com leagues at this point.

Additionally, Jamey eyes a few key stashes who might be worth your time if you are having trouble at the position or just have a roster spot to fill. Specifically, recovering Redskins QB Robert Griffin III (36 percent) and Johnny Manziel (13 percent), the Browns' backup, could be worth a flier.

Among quarterbacks with a lower ceiling who nonetheless have jobs locked down, Kyle Orton of the Bills (12 percent) and Alex Smith of the Chiefs (59 percent) have some value, with matchups against the Jets and Rams, respectively, for Week 8. 


Dolphins attribute read option to Ryan Tannehill's recent success


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/20/2014) Dolphins offensive coordinator Bill Lazor credited quarterback Ryan Tannehill's ability to successfully run the read option as a reason for his team's success as of late. Tannehill completed his first 14 pass attempts and finished 25 for 32 with 277 yards and two scores in a 27-14 victory over the Bears in Week 7.

"Every day, practice and games, he gets better at it," Lazor said, per the Palm Beach Post. "He's confident in it. It helped us win the game."

In the past six quarters, Tannehill has completed 37 of 47 attempts for 437 yards, with four touchdown passes. He's also carried the ball seven times for 88 yards and a score.


Dolphins' Ryan Tannehill has near-flawless outing Week 7


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/19/2014) Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill got back on track with a near-flawless performance, firing two touchdown passes in a Week 8 victory at Chicago.

Tannehill hooked up with Charles Clay for a 13-yard touchdown strike in the opening quarter and fopund Mike Wallace for a 10-yard touchdown pass in the second quarter. He started the game by completing his first 14 pass attempts and finished 25 for 32 on the afternoon with 277 yards and two touchdowns in a 27-14 victory. He was sacked four times and rushed for 48 yards on six carries.

Tannehill will look to keep rolling Week 8 at Jacksonville.
