2015 Outlook: Quality Backup

Last updated on Oct-08-2015 by Shawn Childs


UPDATE (10/8): The expectation that Ryan Tannehill would climb the ladder and develop into a QB1 this season hasn't played out. If anything, the Dolphins have taken a step back due in large part to a struggling offensive line. Until their o-line shows signs of life, Tannehill is limited to a bye week-fill in only when the matchup tilts in his favor.

Tannehill set career highs in attempts, completions, completion percentage, passing yards and touchdowns last year. He also registered a career-low 14 turnovers. Poor pass blocking (104 sacks taken) has been his biggest obstacle to more success. Ryan's legs led to him setting a career high in rushing attempts (56) and rushing yards (311). He had a five-game stretch in which he ran for 227 yards. His receiving corps was almost completely overhauled with only Jarvis Landry returning as a starter. Kenny Stills, Jordan Cameron and DeVante Parker will offer high upside in all areas. Miami fans are hoping a strong defense and a solid running game will give the Dolphins many leads and allow Tannehill to continue his upward growth. His running ability paired with his improved accuracy gives him a chance to be a top-12 fantasy QB in 2015. His success will ultimately depend on the development of his receivers and an improvement in pass-blocking by his offensive line.
