Ryan Tannehill Fantasy Football News 2019

The Titans announced Tuesday that QB Ryan Tannehill will start Sunday's game against the Chargers. The move doesn't come as a surprise after Marcus Mariota was benched in the Week 6 loss at Denver. But it's a significant shift away from the "franchise" QB. Mariota's in the final year (the option year) of his rookie contract and seems almost certainly done with Tennessee after this season. Tannehill is on just a 1-year deal and already 31. If the Titans can get competent QB play, they have enough pass-catching talent to deliver at least usable fantasy value around the offense -- including under center. We wouldn't consider Tannehill outside of DFS and 2-QB leagues in his first start.

Titans QB Marcus Mariota was benched in the 3rd quarter of Sunday's game in Denver after tossing his 2nd INT of the afternoon. He completed just 7 of 18 passes for 63 scoreless yards. QB Ryan Tannehill has replaced Mariota.

The Dolphins have traded QB Ryan Tannehill and a 2019 6th-round pick to the Titans for 2020 4th-rounder and a 2019 7th-rounder. Tennessee also agreed to a new 1-year, $7 million deal with Tannehill that can climb to $12 million with incentives. Tannehill never ascended beyond mediocrity in Miami and figures to open as Marcus Mariota's backup in Tennessee. But Mariota's leash is tightening after a stagnant and injury-filled 4 seasons so far. The Fins, meanwhile, are left with Jake Rudock and Luke Falk at QB. We'll see what they add to the position over the next couple of months.

The Dolphins have fired HC Adam Gase, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Gase led Miami to a 10-6 record and a playoff appearance in his 1st season. But the Fins went 6-10 and 7-9 the past 2 years. Gase still has a strong reputation around the league and could land another HC gig. We've heard that the Packers have interest.

Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill (shoulder) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Packers. He doesn't seem close to a return. QB Brock Osweiler will get another start this weekend but is just a low-end QB2. He's gone score-less in 2 straight while completing just 59% of his passes.

Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill (shoulder) is out for Sunday's game against the Jets. The early rule-out suggests he's not close to returning -- although HC Adam Gase did say that Tannehill has been throwing with trainers. Brock Osweiler gets another start this weekend but is just a low-end QB2 for fantasy.

Dolphins HC Adam Gase confirmed on Monday that QB Brock Osweiler will start Thursday night's game against the Texans. QB Ryan Tannehill remains without a timetable for return from his shoulder injury. Osweiler has been surprisingly solid over the past 2 weeks, completing 67% of his passes, averaging 8.3 yards per attempt and tossing 5 TDs vs. 2 INTs. Still, he's no better than a low-end QB2 for Week 8.

The Dolphins have ruled out QB Ryan Tannehill (shoulder) for this weekend's game against the Lions. Getting ruled out on Wednesday suggests there's a good chance Tannehill misses action beyond this week. QB Brock Osweiler gets another start this Sunday after a stupefying 380-yard, 3-TD outing last weekend. He's still not a recommended fantasy play.

Dolphins HC Adam Gase labeled QB Ryan Tannehill (shoulder) "day-to-day" in his press conference on Monday. Gase added that he won't have a good read on Tannehill's Week 7 availability until later in the week. QB Brock Osweiler played better than even Mrs. Osweiler expected in Sunday's win over the Bears, completing 28 of 44 passes for 380 yards, 3 TDs and 2 INTs. That could make Miami a bit more cautious in bringing Tannehill back. You should continue to avoid this situation in fantasy lineups.

Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill (shoulder) is inactive for today’s game against the Bears. His status beyond this week is uncertain. It’ll be Brock Osweiler under center today vs. 1 of the league’s best defenses. We’d avoid the Dolphins passing game altogether.

ESPN's Adam Schefter hears that Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill's availability for today's game against the Bears is "up in the air." He's dealing with a throwing shoulder injury -- and we've heard whispers that it's an AC joint sprain. Tannehill was a full-go in practice on Wednesday and Thursday but limited Friday. We'll get his official status by noon ET, but he shouldn't be anywhere near fantasy lineups. Miami would be forced to turn to QB Brock Osweiler if Tannehill can't go.

Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill (shoulder) is listed as questionable for this weekend's game against the Bears. He was a full-go on Wednesday and Thursday but limited on Friday. We've heard nothing to suggest that Tannehill is in any danger of missing this game, but we'll keep an eye on his status. Of course, Tannehill is barely a QB2 option in a brutal matchup.

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.
