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.


Good things happen when Ryan Tannehill runs


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10/19/2014) Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill's ability to make plays with his legs had been downplayed in the team's offense early in the season, but he has been unleashed over the last three weeks, to great effect.

Tannehill rushed for 48 yards in the team's 27-14 win over the Bears, the third game in a row he has racked up at least 35. He had just 18 in the first three games of the season combined. The increased reliance on his running skills has opened things up for Tannehill, who is now riding arguably the best three-game stretch of his career.

Tannehill tossed two more touchdowns to go with 277 yards through the air Sunday, and has now topped 20 Fantasy points in each of his last three games. This is just the second time in his career he has accomplished that feat, with the last coming from Weeks 13 through 15 last season.

Tannehill has racked up 35 or more rushing yards eight times in his career, and has 15 passing touchdowns and eight interceptions in those games. Impressively, he is averaging 22.4 Fantasy points per game in those games, which establishes a clear pattern -- just ask the Miami Herald's Adam Beasley.

Tannehill played receiver before earning the quarterback job in college, so his athleticism is no secret. Now that the Dolphins are making use of it more often, he makes for an intriguing Fantasy player. He could be a solid starting option in Week 8 against the Jaguars.  


Dolphins rule quartet of offensive stars active for Week 7


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/19/2014) As expected, Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill (ankle), running back Lamar Miller (knee), wide receiver Brian Hartline (finger) and tight end Charles Clay (knee) have all been labeled active for Sunday's game at Chicago in Week 7. All four offensive players were never in any danger of missing game action.

Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill limited by ankle injury


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(10/15/2014) Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill was limited by an ankle injury in practice Wednesday, the Miami Herald reports.

The Dolphins added a second quarterback to the practice squad this week, but it's likely that Tannehill's injury won't keep him from playing Sunday. He rushed for 49 yards on three carries in Week 6 while racking up 227 passing yards.


Dolphins' Ryan Tannehill passes for 227 yards in Week 6 defeat


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/12/2014) Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill bounced back from a rough start Sunday, but it wasn't enough in his team's 27-24 defeat to the Packers at home in Week 6.

Tannehill was picked off by Casey Hayward and Sam Shields and was limited to 84 passing yards in the first half. He bounced back with touchdown passes to Jarvis Landry -- from 11 yards out -- in the third quarter and to Mike Wallace -- from 5 yards out -- in the fourth quarter.

Tannehill compiled 227 yards through the air while completing 19 of 30 passes. He added two touchdowns and two interceptions, registering a 80.8 passer rating. He was sacked only once and finished with 49 rushing yards on three attempts.

The Dolphins will travel to Chicago to face the Bears in Week 7.


Ryan Tannehill and Dolphins facing touch matchup with Packers


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10/8/2014) Coming off his best performance of the season, Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill could be forced to sling the ball around a lot in Week 6. Should Fantasy owners expect him to find much success against the Packers this Sunday?

The Packers have seen their last three opponents throw the ball at least 34 times against them, but the results have not been good for those passers. Between Jay Cutler, Matthew Stafford and Christian Ponder -- one of these things is not like the other -- the trio combined for just 34 Fantasy points against the Packers over the last three games, with three total touchdowns to seven turnovers.

The Packers have more than held their own in pass defense so far this season, forcing eight turnovers by quarterbacks to six touchdowns. As a result, their 15.2 Fantasy points per game allowed mark ranks third in the league.

Tannehill has been solid through four games, but has yet to have a truly huge Fantasy performance. Given the tough matchup, search for better options and leave Tannehill for two-QB leagues.  


Ryan Tannehill gets off to fast start in London game


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(9/28/2014) Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill got off to a fast start, completing 17 of his first 19 pass attempts in the first half against in Week 4 against the Raiders in London.

Tannehill hooked up with Mike Wallace on a screen pass and he took it 13 yards for a touchdown in the second quarter. Tannehill found Dion Sims in the corner of the end zone for an 18-yard touchdown late in the first half. With the game well in hand, he sat out the final three drives of the game.

Tannehill compiled 278 yards through the air while completing 23 of 31 passes. He added two touchdowns and one interception, registering a 109.3 passer rating. He has 908 passing yards with a 6-to-3 touchdown-to-interception ratio through four games.

The Dolphins have a bye next week before hosting the Packers in Week 6.


It appears Dolphins are not ready to make change at QB


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9/25/2014) While Dolphins head coach Joe Philbin still has yet to announce a starting quarterback for Sunday's game against the Raiders, Ryan Tannehill continues to insist he will start Sunday and backup quarterback Matt Moore appears to be backing up that claim.

"I've taken zero reps. Ryan's prepared the same way he always does and I've prepared the same way I always do," Moore said, per CSNBayArea.com. "We showed up on Tuesday and everything was the same. Obviously, I did get a couple of text messages from friends who read things and it caught me off guard but nothing was said in here."


Ryan Tannehill feels he will start Sunday against Oakland


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9/24/2014) Although Dolphins head coach Joe Philbin continues to avoid naming a starting quarterback for Sunday's game against the Raiders, incumbent starter Ryan Tannehill has no doubt in his mind he will be under center at the start of Sunday's game, per The Palm Beach Post.

"I’m taking the first snap of the game," he said.

Tannehill did admit, however, the quarterback controversy has been a distraction. 

"Obviously it doesn’t feel good," Tannehill said. "It creates a lot of stir, a lot of distraction in the locker room -- mostly from outside."


Report: Ryan Tannehill scheduled to start Sunday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(9/23/2014) Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill is scheduled to start Sunday, NFL.com reports. The team hasn't committed to Tannehill as the starter for Week 4's trip to London, but the third-year signal caller should remain under center for the Dolphins.

Dolphins considering making change at QB?


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9/22/2014) The Dolphins might have a new starting quarterback for their Week 4 showdown with the Raiders in London.

Dolphins coach Joe Philbin was asked Monday following Miami's 34-15 loss Sunday against the Chiefs if Ryan Tannehill will start next week against Oakland, and Philbin didn't exactly respond with a vote of confidence for Tannehill.

"We’ll decide our game plan before we leave to play Oakland," Philbin said, per The Palm Beach Post.

Matt Moore is the Dolphins' backup quarterback.


Ryan Tannehill has another disappointing outing in Week 3


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(9/21/2014) Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill had another disappointing performance in Week 3 at home against the Chiefs.

The offensive line struggled to protect Tannehill, as he was taken for five sacks on the afternoon. Tannehill failed to complete half of his passes, compiling only 205 yards through the air while completing 21 of 43 attempts. Tannehill found an open Brian Hartline on a playaction for a 1-yard score early in the third quarter -- his only touchdown of the game. He finished without an interception and rushed for nine yards in a 31-15 defeat.

Tannehill has yet to crack the 250-yard mark through three weeks. He will look to bounce back in London against the Raiders in Week 4.


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.
