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 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.
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.
