Ryan Tannehill Fantasy Football News 2018

The Dolphins expect QB Ryan Tannehill (knee) to be able to participate in next week's OTAs with "little or no limitations," according to the Miami Herald's Armando Salguero. Tannehill suffered a partially torn ACL back in December 2016 but didn't undergo surgery until last August, forcing him to miss the entire 2017 campaign. Miami flirted with the rookie QBs this offseason, and this feels like a make-or-break year for Tannehill with the Dolphins. He was sitting 20th among QBs in fantasy points when he went down in 2016, his 1st year in HC Adam Gase's offense. There's room for improvement in 2018, although the departure of WR Jarvis Landry won't help. Tannehill should only be drafted as a lower-end QB2.

Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill (knee) is expected to be ready for spring workouts, according to insider Armando Salguero. Tannehill finally had surgery to repair his ACL in August after partially tearing it the previous December. He'll be about 9 months removed from surgery when minicamp opens this spring. Barring setbacks, Tannehill will be under center for Miami come Week 1. He's signed with the Fins through the 2020 campaign.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill has decided to have surgery to repair his left ACL. He partially tore that ligament last December but passed on surgery in the offseason. Then he re-injured the knee in practice earlier this month. Miami, of course, planned for this outcome by signing QB Jay Cutler. The Dolphins will have a decision to make next offseason, with much smaller dead-cap figures on Tannehill's contract in 2018 and 2019 should they decide to cut him -- vs. cap hits of $19.8 million and up over the final 3 years.

The Dolphins have coaxed QB Jay Cutler out of retirement with a 1-year, $10 million deal, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. The move is a sure sign that the team has elected to have QB Ryan Tannehill undergo season-ending surgery on his ACL. Cutler's 2016 season ended with a torn labrum, and he finished with a 59.1% completion rate, 4 TDs and 5 INTs in 5 appearances. The year prior, though, he connected on 64.4% of his attempts with 21 TDs and 11 INTs. That season came under OC Adam Gase, who is now HC of the Dolphins. That experience in the offense will help Cutler get ready with Week 1 just 5 weeks away. Cutler will be piloting a run-heavy offense and is no more than a lower-end QB2 in fantasy. But he'll keep this offense on schedule. We're not moving any Miami skill-position players down the rankings.

As we continue to await Miami's decision on whether to have QB Ryan Tannehill undergo surgery on his left knee, we've at least learned the best possible case for the former 1st-round pick. According to ESPN's Jeff Darlington, the non-surgical option is to have Tannehill rest for 6-8 weeks. The regular season kicks off in a little more than 5 weeks, so consider Tannehill a long shot to play in the opener. He'll likely miss at least the first 2-3 games. And, of course, it's still possible he's done for the year. Tannehill is undraftable right now.

Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill isn't out of the woods yet. While he avoided new ligament damage to his left knee, the Fins still believe the MRI results showed a "setback," according to ESPN's Jeff Darlington. The team must now decide whether Tannehill should undergo surgery to completely repair the ACL that he partially tore last December. "Such a scenario probably would end his season, and team sources say that scenario remains on the table," Darlington writes. With his status in limbo, Tannehill needs to be removed from cheat sheets.

NFL Network's Aditi Kinkhabwala reports that tests revealed no structural damage to Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill's knee. He's merely dealing with a hyperextension. Tannehill still figures to miss some time, but he should be ready for Week 1. It's extremely good news after what looked like a potentially serious injury this morning. Tannehill remains a low-upside QB2, but his availability is good news for Miami's skill-position guys.

The Dolphins are still awaiting the MRI results on QB Ryan Tannehill's re-injured left knee. But a source tells the Miami Herald's Armando Salguero that the teams knows Tannehill hyperextended the knee. Salguero's original report said that there was a possibility he suffered PCL damage, but that's now been ruled out. We still don't know if there's damage to the ACL that Tannehill partially tore last year. Stay tuned.

Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill re-injured his left knee on a non-contact play in Thursday's training-camp practice. That's the knee in which he partially tore his ACL last December. ESPN's Adam Schefter confirms that the team is "concerned" about Tannehill's injury. We should learn more over the next 24 hours. Tannehill is no more than a QB2 in fantasy football, but his loss would hurt WRs Jarvis Landry, DeVante Parker and Kenny Stills. Matt Moore is Miami's backup.

Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill is ready for the start of the team's offseason program in April, according to the Miami Herald's Armando Salguero. Tannehill avoided surgery on his partially torn ACL and sprained MCL and completed his rehab in early February. He's expected to wear a brace on the left knee this season. Barring any setbacks, though, it won't be a concern for his 2017 fantasy stock.

A source tells the Miami Herald's Armando Salguero that Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill's knee is "stable." Tannehill escaped with just a sprained ACL and MCL, and this report seems to confirm that he won't need surgery. VP of Football Operations Mike Tannenbaum is confident that Tannehill will be ready for the 2017 season. “Ryan’s working really hard," Tannenbaum said. "We’re encouraged by his progress. We’re going to closely monitor it and we’re excited about the future with him.” Tannehill set career bests in completion rate (67.1%) and yards per attempt (7.7) this past year but was sitting just 22nd among QBs in fantasy points through 13 healthy weeks. That was due in large part to a run-heavier Miami offense. Tannehill's 29.9 pass attempts per game were a career low.

Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill (knee) returned to a limited practice on Friday, per the Miami Herald's Barry Jackson. Tannehill won't play against the Steelers this weekend, but it looks like he'd have a shot to be under center for the Divisional Round if Miami advances.

Dolphins HC Adam Gase confirmed Wednesday that QB Matt Moore is likely to start Sunday's game vs. the Steelers. "Unless something drastically changes" with QB Ryan Tannehill's recovery, Gase added. Tannehill has resumed throwing but is still in an "early stage" of his rehab, Gase said. Perhaps he has a shot to return if the Fins advance, but it'll be Moore in Pittsburgh this weekend. The 32-year-old has fared fine so far, completing 63.2% of his passes with an 8-to-3 TD:INT ratio.

There's "reason for optimism" that Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill (knee) could return for the playoffs, according to the Miami Herald's Adam Beasley. Tannehill has shed his cast and was walking without crutches on Saturday. Miami needs either a Broncos loss to the Chiefs on Sunday night or a win over the Patriots in Week 17 to clinch a postseason berth. QB Matt Moore will start vs. New England.

Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill (knee) is out for Saturday night’s game against the Jets. QB Matt Moore will make his 1st start since 2011. He’s a bottom-barrel QB2, despite the plus matchup.

Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill escaped Sunday's win over the Cardinals with only a sprained ACL and MCL, HC Adam Gase said Monday. He was believed to have torn his ACL. Gase added that "it doesn't look" like Tannehill will need surgery, but it remains uncertain if he'll be able to play again this season. We'd still bet on him missing multiple weeks and consider QB Matt Moore a lock to start Saturday night's game against the Jets.

Facing Arizona, Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill completed 15 of 20 passes for 195 yards, 3 TDs and 1 INT. He played well despite rain falling for most of the day in Miami. The bad news is he suffered a potentially serious knee (ACL) injury after taking a hit from DL Calais Campbell in the 2nd half. Veteran backup Matt Moore finished Sunday’s game and completed 3 of 5 attempts for 47 yards. He'd only be worth a look in 2-QB leagues for upcoming road games at the Jets and Bills.
