Free Agent Focus

Week 3 Free Agent Focus

By Matt Schauf and Jared Smola 10:09am EDT 9/19/16

Ryan Tannehill, QB, Dolphins

Blind-bid recommendation: 8-10%

It wasn’t the prettiest performance, but Tannehill racked up 389 passing yards and 2 TDs — plus 35 more yards on the ground — in Sunday’s loss in New England. He seemed to benefit from getting WR DeVante Parker back in the lineup.

Tannehill targeted Parker 13 times in his 1st action of the season -- which tied Jarvis Landry for the team lead -- and connected 8 times for 106 yards. We'll see if Parker can become a consistent factor, but he has now compiled 80+ yards in 4 of his past 6 outings. The young wideout adds explosiveness to a passing game that needs it.

Tannehill and the Dolphins get a home opener in Week 3 against the Browns, who’ve allowed 580 yards and 4 scores to Carson Wentz and Joe Flacco over the first 2 weeks.

Jerick McKinnon, RB, Vikings

Blind-bid recommendation: 70-80%

This is why we listed McKinnon as 1 of the few "locks" in our summer handcuffs article -- not because we knew Adrian Peterson would go down at some point, but because any significant injury would propel this dynamic athlete into a big role.
