2016 Outlook: Bye Week Fill-in

Last updated on Aug-21-2016 by Shawn Childs


Over four seasons as the starting QB for the Dolphins, Tannehill has a 29-35 record with two 4000+ yard passing seasons on his resume. He's been sacked 184 times in his career with two of those years resulting in the most yards loss (2013 – 399 and 2015 – 420). Ryan appeared to be on the verge of a breakthrough season after setting career highs in passing yards (4045), passing TDs (27), and completion rate (66.4) in 2014. Even with similar pass attempts in 2015 (586), he had a regression in his completion percentage (61.9) with a small step forward in passing yards (4208) and weaker passing TDs (24). His production grades as about league average while producing only two impact games in 2015 (282 passing yards with four TDs and 351 passing yards and three TDs). On the year, Ryan had six 300 yards passing games and two games with three TDs or more. Over his last ten starts, He had six games with one TD or fewer while passing for only 86 yards in Week 13 against the Ravens at home. Tannehill tends to be a dink and dunk type QB with low production in yards per pass attempts (6.9 in his career – 7.2 in 2015 which was a career high). The Dolphins new offensive coordinator has worked with Peyton Manning and Andrew Luck for most of his career so he may be able to unlock the key to Ryan having more success in the deep passing game. Miami has one stud WR and two other options with playmaking ability. I have to believe this offense and team will be improved in 2016, so I'll stick my neck out and say Ryan passes for 4500+ yards with a chance at 30+ TDs. I would never draft him as my starting QB in Fantasy, but he makes sense as an upside QB2. I don't like his schedule late in the season during the Fantasy playoffs in most high stakes leagues – @LAR, SF, @BAL, ARI, @NYJ, and @ BUF.

15.06 Scout Fantasy - Mark Morales-Smith - I needed a backup QB and believe Tannehill can be in 2016 who he was expected to be in 2015. I'm snagging him late while others sleep on him this season.
