Ryan Tannehill struggles in loss


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/14/2014) Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill struggled in Week 2 against the Bills, a 29-10 loss Sunday.

Tannehill had trouble establishing much of a rhythm in Sunday's game, with much of his production coming late in the blowout loss. He finished with 241 passing yards while completing 31 of 49 passes, with one touchdown and one interception. The score came on a third quarter toss to Mike Wallace, which required a one-handed grab for Wallace to bring in.

Tannehill has completed 60.5 percent of his passes through two games, with three touchdowns and two interceptions, but has not looked strong overall. He will look to improve in Week 3 against the Chiefs. 


Ryan Tannehill tosses two scores in opening win


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/7/2014) Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill got off to a slow start in Week 1 against the Patriots, but found his stride in a 33-20 win Sunday.

Tannehill tossed a touchdown on his first drive, but ended up finishing the first half with just 73 yards of passing, along with one interception. He was much improved in the second half, finishing the game 18 for 32 with 178 yards and two touchdowns through the air.

Tannehill got more help from the running game than he has been able to depend on in the past, so he wasn't forced to do much as the team worked its way back from an early deficit. He will face another AFC East rival in Week 2, with the Bills looming on the schedule Sunday.  


Ryan Tannehill 'feels great' throwing deep


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(9/4/2014) Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill has addressed a concerning issue about his struggles throwing deep with accuracy, particularly with speedster Mike Wallace as his primary receiver.

"I feel great," he told the South Florida Sun-Sentinel. "We had two deep balls, I think, to Mike (on Wednesday) in practice, hit on (Tuesday) on a double move deep in practice, so I feel great about our chemistry on the deep ball right now. I'm really trusting him, laying it out there, letting him use his speed to run out there and get it."

Tannehill developed enough of a rapport with Wallace to feed him a career-high 73 passes last season. But they could not connect deep often, as his career-low 12.7 YPC attests. Wallace caught five passes of 40 yards or longer.


Expectations low for Ryan Tannehill in Week 1


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/2/2014) Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill enjoyed some of his best success a year ago against the Patriots, but he might not be so lucky as he gets set to open the season in Week 1.

Tannehill scored 44 Fantasy points over two games against the Patriots, including a massive 312-yard, three-touchdown performance in Week 15. However, the Patriots made some key additions to the defense this offseason, none bigger than the signing of shutdown corner Darrelle Revis. An improved Patriots defense will only make life tougher for Tannehill this Sunday, and he had just 14 Fantasy points in his first matchup with them a year ago anyways. 

Tannehill has faced the Patriots four times in his career, averaging 231 yards per game while adding five touchdowns and three interceptions. Entering his third season, Tannehill may yet become a consistent Fantasy contributor, but our Fantasy experts don't think he is worth the bet for Week 1; neither Jamey Eisenberg nor Dave Richard has him ranked among the top 24 quarterbacks for the week. 


Ryan Tannehill out, Matt Moore in Thursday for Dolphins


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(8/28/2014) Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill will catch a breather for the Thursday night preseason finale against St. Louis. Matt Moore is set to start instead.

Tannehill has completed 28 of 41 passes for 291 yards with one touchdown and one interception in exhibition play. Moore has performed well at 25 of 38 for 330 yards and two scores.


Ryan Tannehill picked off once in dress rehearsal game


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8/23/2014) Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill had a quiet performance as he failed to get in the end zone during Saturday's preseason game against the Cowboys.

Tannehill had some issues again connecting with primary target Mike Wallace, missing his receiver wide open on a deep route in the first half. On his first drive after halftime, Tannehill was picked off by Tyler Patmon. The third-year quarterback compiled 119 yards through the air while completing 13 of 21 passes. He had one interception and finished with a 57.4 passer rating.

Ryan Tannehill can't find top target vs. Bucs


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8/16/2014) Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill had a hard time connecting with his top target Saturday night against the Buccaneers in preseason action.

Mike Wallace did not appear to be on the same page with Tannehill. Wallace failed to come down with a deep pass on the opening drive. He also dropped a bubble screen pass late in the first quarter.

Tannehill worked three series with the first-team offense and saw his night come to an end when he was strip-sacked by Gerald McCoy on the first play of the second quarter. He completed 9 of 14 pass attempts for 110 yards through the air, registering a 88.4 passer rating.

Ryan Tannehill displaying better footwork


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/11/2014) Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill said offensive coordinator Bill Lazor has adjusted his footwork and it's made a big difference.

"It’s helped me get the ball out faster, have more velocity on some of my throws, and just be more consistent,” Tannehill told the Miami Herald. "Some of the incompletions I’ve had in the past are due to inconsistent footwork. That was his big key coming in to say: 'Hey, we’re going to get your feet right and then everything else will take care of itself.'"


Ryan Tannehill 'very decisive' in preseason opener


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/11/2014) Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill earned praise from offensive coordinator Bill Lazor after his 6-for-6 passing performance against the Falcons. Tannehill drove the team 73 yards in 10 plays, capping the drive with a 6-yard touchdown pass to Brandon Gibson.

"I thought he had 10 good plays," Lazor told the South Florida Sun-Sentinel. "I thought he showed command, I thought he was very decisive on the field, the ball came out of his hand on time with all of them. He has a really good grasp of what we're doing.

"My job right now is to push him," Lazor added. "I've got to make it very hard for him out here on the practice field. I heard a rumor that some people have reported we've made it hard for him on the field. That's on purpose. That's how you build a quarterback. He's coming."


Ryan Tannehill has impressive debut under new offense


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8/8/2014) Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill got off to an impressive start Friday against the Falcons in Atlanta.

Working under Bill Lazor's new offense, Tannehill opened the preseason with a 10-play, 73-yard drive which ended on a 6-yard touchdown pass to Brandon Gibson on the opening drive. He was pulled for Seth Lobato after the first series of offense. Tannehill completed all six of his pass attempts for 62 yards and a touchdown.

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.
