Ryan Tannehill entering crucial season


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/17/2014) This is a big season coming up for Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill, reports ESPN.

The report says the "kid gloves are off and this a crucial third year for the former first-round pick. Is Tannehill a franchise building block or just another average quarterback? He's shown reasons to make a case for both sides. But the Dolphins are standing behind Tannehill for at least one more season to see if he can improve on his 15-17 career record."

This year Tannehill must prove he can lead the Dolphins to the playoffs. And he must do so while learning a new offense for the first time in his career. If he struggles, the team could look at finding a new quarterback for next season.


Has the Ryan Tannehill-Mike Wallace connection been fixed?


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/30/2014) There were issues between Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill and receiver Mike Wallace connecting on long passes last season. In 2013 Wallace had just five catches good for 40-plus yards, four of them legitimate deep lobs (and all of those four slightly underthrown). A big issue for Miami this offseason is to fix the deep ball for Tannehill and have him connect more often with the blazing-fast Wallace. 

According to ESPN, there's no visual evidence of an improvement. Over seven practices open to the media including the team's recent three-day minicamp, Tannehill has failed to connect with Wallace. He's tried but misfired. 

The team, including the receiver involved, insists that it's a non-issue. 

"(You) haven't been here. ... We hit those, about three or four of them so far," Wallace said. "Me and him haven't personally thrown that many. If we've thrown like six, we've hit on like four."

ESPN also notes that Wallace "appears determined" to have a big year. He's put in extra time after practice to work on his hands and received praise from his head coach, Joe Philbin, who said he's "doing the little things that can make the difference when the season comes around."


Dolphins player on rise: Ryan Tannehill


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/27/2014) Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill is considered a player on the rise, reports ESPN.

The report says the Dolphins are asking a lot of Tannehill in his third season, which includes making it to the playoffs, becoming a leader on the team and mastering a new offense under first-year coordinator Bill Lazor.

Tannehill had some ups and downs this offseason, per the report, but he is showing growth, especially in the leadership department.


Ryan Tannehill getting comfortable in offense


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/20/2014) Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill continues to make progress with the new offense, reports the Miami Herald

"A lot better today," Tannehill saud Thursday. "Still not perfect. We had a lot less mental errors. It’s exciting to see the progression."

Tannehill also expressed his appreciation for new offensive coordinator Bill Lazor.

"He's very precise," Tannehill said. "He wants everything exactly like he talked about. That gives me comfort. ... That accountability is raised."


Ryan Tannehill grappling with 'learning curve'


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(5/28/2014) Under new offensive coordinator Bill Lazor, Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill is learning a new system for the first time in his three-year NFL career. Miami's former offensive coordinator, Mike Sherman, was the head coach at Texas A&M when Tannehill played there.

Lazor's system features multiple formations, an up-tempo style and quick-hitting plays, according to ESPN.com.

"There’s still a learning curve. It’s not going to come overnight," Tannehill told the website. "It’s going to take some time, not just for me but for all of our guys. The receivers are running routes that they haven’t run before doing adjustments that we haven’t done before, so there’s going to be a learning curve, but that’s what this time is for."


Ryan Tannehill knows he has to make a 'big jump'


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(4/10/2014) Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill realizes that 2014 has to be the year he improves. Speaking with ESPN during a photo shoot in Los Angeles, Tannehill is confident he'll be a better football player.

"I have to make a big jump, I'm aware of that," Tannehill said. "I'm putting in the work, putting in the time to get myself physically ready, mentally ready and learn this new offense that we're going with this year. So there is still work to be done. But I look for a big jump in myself, both in production and wins. That's what we ultimately play for is wins. So, I'm excited to see what this team does."

The Dolphins not only added left tackle Branden Albert and left guard Shelley Smith to bolster an offensive line dashed by injuries and controversies last year, but they made a switch at offensive coordinator, going with ex-Eagles quarterbacks coach Bill Lazor. 


Philbin has plan to help Ryan Tannehill improve


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(3/25/2014) Dolphins coach Joe Philbin said Tuesday at the NFL owners meetings he has three things he wants to see from quarterback Ryan Tannehill in his third season in 2014. 

Philbin wants Tannehill to play faster, be more accurate and limit turnovers.

"Just continued development," Philbin said. "We want to see the play speed continue to get better. We think we saw the development from Year 1 to Year 2. We want to see the accuracy continue to get better. There was some progress in his completion percentage. And we want to see the interceptions go down."

Philbin said the addition of offensive coordinator Bill Lazor should help Tannehill improve based on Lazor's background, which includes working with Nick Foles in Philadelphia in 2013.

"He told me he would be at least the third-highest quarterback rating in history like Nick Foles," Philbin said of Lazor working with Tannehill. "That’s a joke. Anyway, Bill has a lot of experience working with quarterbacks. ... He’s been around a lot of different ways to do it. He’s played quarterback himself. He’s worked with a lot of different guys. What I’m interested in with Bill is increased play speed, increased accuracy and cut down on the turnovers."


Ryan Tannehill: Learning new offense 'a big task'


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(2/24/2014) Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill said he spoke to new coordinator Bill Lazor and found out the offense "definitely will be different," according to the Miami Herald. "It’s a completely different system. Bill runs a numbers system. Coach [Mike] Sherman was a West Coast-style system.

"Everything is going to have a different name," Tannehill added. "It’s going to be re-programmed in my brain to work in a different way. It’s a big task.”

Tannehill said he's excited to work with Lazor. “He’s a fun guy to work with. Just his personality coming in seems like it’s going to be a lot of fun," the quarterback said. "I’m looking forward to when we can get into learning the offense. I’m just waiting on that date. ... I’m really looking forward to taking a big step this year.”


La Canfora: Dolphins could make a quarterback change eventually


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(2/7/2014) Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill is expected to get more pressure from coach Joe Philbin this summer to improve his game -- or else. CBSSports.com NFL Insider Jason La Canfora writes that Miami head coach Joe Philbin professed his belief in backup Matt Moore to several general manager candidates, suggesting that he could put Moore in the lineup if Tannehill doesn't improve. 

"He definitely wants to push Tannehill more," a source who spoke with Philbin said, "and if he doesn't see improvement he said he might go to Moore at some point. He definitely has a lot of faith in Moore, and they're paying him a lot of money."

Indeed, Moore is due $4 million in 2014 and counts for $5.5 million against the cap. Tannehill is not due for a new contract until 2016. 


Ryan Tannehill flops in must-win closer


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/29/2013) Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill turned in his second subpar performance in a row to finish the season Sunday, in a 20-7 loss to the Jets in Week 17. The loss ended Miami's playoff chances.  

Tannehill completed just 20 of 39 passes for 204 yards, narrowly avoiding a second straight game with a sub-50.0 percent completion percentage. He threw one touchdown, a 5-yarder to Mike Wallace in the second quarter, but followed it up with a trio of costly interceptions in the second half.

Despite the disappointing finish, Tannehill still made strides in his second season in the league. He finishes with 3,913 yards with 24 touchdowns and 17 interceptions, while completing 60.5 percent of his passes.


Dolphins healthy for Sunday game


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/27/2013) The Dolphins have placed 10 players on their Friday injury report, but only running back Daniel Thomas (ankle) is questionable for the critical battle against the Jets. The others are probable, including quarterback Ryan Tannehill (knee). The other offensive players are wide receivers Brian Hartline (knee) and Marlon Moore (wrist).

The defensive probables are defensive backs Jamar Taylor (hamstring), Don Jones (elbow/abdomen) and Chris Clemons (knee/hamstring), linebacker Koa Misi (triceps) and tackles Jared Odrick (wrist) and Paul Soliai (ankle).


Bills beat up Ryan Tannehill in shutout


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/22/2013) Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill took a beating in Week 16 against the Bills Sunday, even suffering a knee injury that forced him out of the game briefly in a 10-0 loss.

Tannehill was held out of the end zone for the first time all season, as he completed just 10 of 27 passes for 82 yards, the second-worst total of his career. The Bills dominated the Dolphins' offensive line, sacking Tannehill seven times for 46 yards, and pressuring him countless others.

Tannehille briefly left the game in the fourth quarter with a knee injury, and he was eventually benched towards the end of the game. Tannehill finished with the worst completion percentage of his career at 37.0 percentage, and his 3.0 yards per attempt are also a career-worst.

Assuming his knee injury does not prove to be serious, Tannehill will try to bounce back in Week 17 against the Jets. He passed for 331 yards and two touchdowns in a 23-3 win over the Jets in Week 13. 


Ryan Tannehill out to avenge early-season loss


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/19/2013) Week 7 against the Bills proved to be a turning point for Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill, as he put up the first three-touchdown game of his career, launching a stretch that has seen him toss multiple scores in six of the last nine games. He will look for continued success against the Bills in Week 16, in an important game for the Dolphins' playoff chances.

Tannehill has been exquisite in the last nine games, starting with that loss to the Bills. He has 18 touchdowns and just nine interceptions in that span, while passing for 249.3 yards per game and completing 62.2 percent of his passes. He does face a somewhat stiff test if he wants to avenge that earlier loss, as the Bills remain a top-10 defense in terms of Fantasy points allowed to quarterbacks.

Over the last six games, no quarterback has reached 20 Fantasy points against the Bills. Given the strength of the Bills' defense, Tannehill remains more of a low-end starting option, despite his recent success. 


Ryan Tannehill tosses three more scores in big win


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/15/2013) Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill was winless in three games against the Patriots entering Week 15, a losing streak he finally put to bed with a 24-20 win Sunday.  

Tannehill put up arguably the finest performance of his career to get the win, as he passed for 312 yards and threw three touchdown passes. He connected on scores of 39, 2 and 14 yards, the last of which provided the winning margin for the Dolphins on a toss to Marcus Thigpen.

Tannehill completed 25 of 37 passes overall, the seventh game in a row he has completed at least 60 percent of his passes. He also avoided an interception for the first time in six games, and now has 23 touchdowns and 14 interceptions on the season.

Tannehill has really turned his season around, and has now tossed three touchdowns in each of the last two games. He will try to keep his solid play up in Week 16 in a trip to Buffalo. 


Ryan Tannehill looking for first win over Patriots


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/12/2013) Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill is riding arguably the best stretch of his career, having won four of his last six games, while completing 65.0 percent of his passes and amassing 10 turnovers in that span. He will need to be solid yet again in Week 15, with a big game coming against the Patriots Sunday.

Tannehill hasn't enjoyed much success against the Patriots in his nearly two-year NFL career. He failed to throw a touchdown in either game against them as a rookie, and matched his two-touchdown performance in a Week 8 game against the Patriots earlier this season with a pair of costly interceptions.

Since that game against Tannehill, the Patriots defense hasn't been particularly great against quarterbacks, however. Opposing passers have racked up 30-plus points in three of five games since, and are averaging 26.2 Fantasy points per game with 13 touchdowns and only four interceptions in that span.

Tannehill's track record against New England doesn't bode well, but there are reasons to think he might be able to turn it around against them. Given his recent play, as well as New England's poor recent track record against the pass, has some upside as a low-end starting option for Week 15.   


Ryan Tannehill tosses three scores in road win


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/8/2013) Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill had another strong performance Sunday against the Steelers, in leading the way in a 34-28 win on the road.

Tannehill braved snowy conditions for the first time in his career, and did not seem adversely effected. He finished the game with multiple touchdowns for the second week in a row, as he tossed three scores. Two of them went Charles Clay's way including a game-winning 12-yarder with less than three minutes remaining in the fourth quarter.

Tannehill completed 20 of 33 passes for 201 yards to go with his three scores, though he was picked off once. He added 48 yards on three rushes, matching a season-high. Tannehill has now completed at least 60 percent of his passes in six straight games, with nine touchdowns and five interceptions in that span.

Tannehill enters Week 15 against the Patriots with 3,316 passing yards, 20 touchdowns and 14 interceptions on the season. 


Thumb no concern for Ryan Tannehill Sunday


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/8/2013) Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill (thumb) is active for Week 14 against the Steelers, and that shouldn't come as much of a surprise. Tannehill was considered probable for the game despite the injury.  

Dolphins place only three offensive players on injury report


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/6/2013) Running backs Daniel Thomas (ankle) and Lamar Miller (pectoral) and quarterback Ryan Tannehill (thumb) are the only offensive players on the injury report released Friday by the Dolphins. Thomas is questionable for Sunday at Pittsburgh while the others are probable.

Steelers could slow Ryan Tannehill down


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/5/2013) Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill hasn't found consistent success in his second season, but he has been looking better over the last few weeks. Tannehill enters Week 14 against the Steelers with back-to-back 300-yard passing performances under his belt, and his head coach acknowledged his improvement Wednesday at practice.

"He's clearly playing better," Joe Philbin told ESPN.com Wednesday. "You can look [at it] on a piece of paper and say he's playing better. I think overall, he has more command of the offense, his decision-making has improved and this is an important game for everybody." 

Despite his improvement, Tannehill might struggle to reach 300 yards for the third time, as he has to face a Steelers defense that holds opposing quarterbacks to 237 passing yards per game, the ninth-fewest in the league. Quarterbacks are averaging just 16.2 Fantasy points per game against the Steelers as well.

Furthermore, the weather in Pittsburgh Sunday calls for a chance of snow. Tannehill has never played in snow, but said he is not overly concerned about it affecting his game.

"If it's snowing, I've heard it's not too bad," Tannehill said. "It's actually nice to play in it. From the guys just in the locker room talking, Matt [Moore] played in the snow a few times. He said it's nice. It doesn't affect the ball." 

Even coming off arguably the best stretch of his career, Tannehill isn't the type of quarterback you start against just any defense. With this matchup, Tannehill should probably be considered just a low-end Fantasy option for Week 14. 


Ryan Tannehill tops 300 yards again in win


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/1/2013) Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill had another strong performance in Week 13, as he led the way in a 23-3 win over the Jets Sunday.

Tannehill topped 300 yards for the second game in a row, the first time he has done that in consecutive games in his career. Tannehill completed 28 of 43 passes for 331 yards, and tossed a pair of touchdowns, one each to Brian Hartline and Mike Wallace. He added 22 yards rushing on three attempts.

The only blemish on Tannehill's line was a second-quarter interception. Tannehill has now completed better than 60.0 percent of his passes in each of the last five games, while throwing six touchdowns and four interceptions in that span. With four games left in the season, he heads into Week 14 against the Steelers just 179 passing yards short of his rookie season total. 


Ryan Tannehill looking for success vs. Jets


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11/28/2013) Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill will be trying to accomplish a career first when he takes on the Jets this Sunday. The second-year signal caller has yet to throw a touchdown against this AFC East foe, a trend he will look to change in Week 13.

Tannehill left one of the team's games against the Jets last season due to a leg injury, be he made it through the entirety of another without a touchdown. If he is to turn things around this week, he will do so against a team that has not been particularly strong against quarterbacks.

Opposing passers averaging 19.8 Fantasy points per game against the Jets this season, and have topped 20 points in three of the last four games. The Jets' stout run defense has pushed teams into plenty of passing situations, and they allow the 22nd-most passing yards in the league.

Tannehill is coming off his third 300-yard passing performance of the season, and should have a good opportunity to put up numbers. Unfortunately, with bye weeks in the past, Tannehill is more of a No. 2 Fantasy option at quarterback for Week 13. 


Ryan Tannehill leaves points on the board in loss


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11/24/2013) Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill's trouble finding the range on his deep ball continued in Week 12, and ended up costing the Dolphins some big plays in a 20-16 loss to the Panthers.

Though Tannehill was able to find Mike Wallace for a 53-yard touchdown in the first quarter, he even underthrew Wallace on that score. Tannehill ended up connecting with Wallace for 127 yards on five receptions. Unfortunately, Tannehill probably left points on the board at least one or two other times with poor throws on deep passes, which he acknowledged after the game.

"It was good to hit a couple deep ones. Obviously we needed to hit one in the second half," Tannehill told the Sun-Sentinel.

Tannehill finished the game with a very solid line despite his struggles on deep passes, as he completed 28 of 42 passes for 310 yards. He had just one touchdown, and was intercepted once.

Tannehill has 15 touchdowns and 12 interceptions on the season, heading into Week 13 against the Jets in New York. 


Ryan Tannehill running into tough matchup


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11/21/2013) The Panthers' defensive backfield was supposed to be a weakness this season, but opposing quarterbacks have largely been unable to take advantage of them this season. That is unlikely to change in Week 12, when Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill tries to take them on.

The Panthers have held opposing quarterbacks to a league-low 10.6 Fantasy points per game, and they have handled much better quarterbacks than Tannehill so far. Tom Brady had just 15 Fantasy points against the Panthers in Week 11, for instance, while Matt Ryan and Colin Kaepernick combined for just 10 in the two prior games.

Tannehill has yet to face the Panthers in his career, so we don't have a track record against this opponent to go on. Still, he ranks just 18th among quarterbacks in Fantasy scoring this season, so we shouldn't expect much. He is a risky play for Week 12 against the Panthers' tough defense.  


Ryan Tannehill good enough for Dolphins in victory


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11/17/2013) Good was good enough for Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill against San Diego on Sunday. He passed for 268 yards and one touchdown, but a rejuvenated ground game and a strong defense resulted in a win.

Tannehill, who also threw one interception, spread the ball around in the first half, hitting four different receivers for 20-plus yards by early in the second quarter. Though he completed just 8 of 14 for 115 yards after intermission, his 39-yard scoring strike to tight end Charles Clay midway through the third quarter proved to be the game-winner.

A far more difficult challenge lies ahead for Tannehill, who added 21 yards on four carries. The shutdown defense of Carolina will be coming to town next Sunday.


Miami down another OL not good news for QB, RB


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/17/2013) With the report Dolphins center Mike Pouncey won't play Week 11 at San Diego due to an illness, his absence could have an impact on quarterback Ryan Tannehill and running back Lamar Miller. With this news, you might consider using other alternatives in Fantasy Week 11.

The news could really impact the Dolphins' run game since Pouncey will be the third starting offensive lineman sidelined, joining Jonathan Martin and Richie Incognito. Running backs are already averaging just 13.7 Fantasy points per week against San Diego, which is the eighth-lowest average.
