Tannehill completed 24 of 32 passes for 252 yards without a touchdown or a turnover Sunday against the Steelers.
Tannehill served as a game manager, letting a huge game from running back Jay Ajayi and a strong performance by the defense carry Miami to a 30-15 victory. He showed clear improvement over his play from the past two weeks, but still has a horrendous 1:3 touchdown to interception ratio in his last three appearances. Pretty much any other starting quarterback in the NFL makes for a more enticing fantasy option at the moment.
Coach Adam Gase stated Monday that
This comes after fans in Miami were calling for his release both during and after the game versus Tennessee on Sunday. Tannehill has been below average once again this season and may have even regressed, but the bottom line is that the
Tannehill completed just 12 of 18 passes for 191 yards with no touchdowns and two interceptions in Sunday's loss to the Titans.
That's two straight forgettable performances for the Dolphins quarterback, who has thrown for just 380 yards with one touchdown and three interceptions over the past two weeks combined. Despite the 2012 first-rounder's poor recent play, head coach Adam Gase made it clear that Tannehill will be Miami's starter for the remainder of the season. If he can't exploit Pittsburgh's porous secondary next week, it's going to be very tough to trust Tannehill moving forward.
The stark reality of a complete absence of an NFL-caliber running attack smacked Tannehill and the
Tannehill completed 25 of 39 passes for 319 yards, three scores and two picks in Sunday's win over Cleveland. He also lost a fumble during the game.
As is often the case with Tannehill, Sunday's game was full of dazzling plays and bone-headed misses. The final few moments of regulation and overtime perfectly illustrate this as Tannehill was slow getting the ball off during the team's final drive of the fourth quarter - leading to a fumble that almost gave the game away. He responded in overtime by uncorking a 32-yard strike to Jarvis Landry with a defender in his face to set up the game-winning score. Tannehill has shown some big-play ability in Adam Gase's offense over the past two weeks, but four picks and three fumbles in three games makes him too much of a liability to rely on.
