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.

Recent Shark Bites

The Titans and QB Ryan Tannehill have agreed to a 4-year, $118 million deal with $91 million in total guarantees, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. That $29.5 million average annual salary makes Tannehill the league's 7th highest paid QB. After a mostly disappointing 6 seasons in Miami, Tannehill was awesome for Tennessee last year. Including the playoffs, he completed 68.5% of his passes, averaged 9.0 yards per attempt and tossed 27 TDs vs. 7 INTs across 14 appearances. He was fantasy's #3 QB after taking over as the Titans' starter in Week 7. Note, though, that Tannehill averaged just 25.4 pass attempts in his 13 starts. He'll need to reproduce last year's otherworldly efficiency in order to score as a top 10 QB on that type of volume. Consider Tannehill more of a high-end QB2 in early best-ball drafts.

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.

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.
