You probably won't be excited to have Ryan Tannehill as your No. 1 QB for Fantasy, but you'll never regret snagging him with a late-round pick if you're waiting on the position. He proved his breakout in 2019 was no fluke, ranking seventh in yards per attempt and third in touchdown rate among all passers in 2020. The lack of volume in the Titans passing game limits his ceiling, and the loss of Corey Davis and Jonnu Smith will make his job tougher, which is why you don't want to just set Tannehill as your starter and forget it. But as part of a tandem, he's about as steady and reliable as they come at this point.
Tannehill's offensive weapons were significantly upgraded by the acquisition of Julio Jones, Gentry Estes of The Tennessean reports. Titans offensive playmakers were instantly upgraded Sunday after the acquisition of Jones. In an offseason of change -- Corey Davis departed and former offensive coordinator Arthur Smith was hired as the Falcons head coach -- it was reasonable to expect that Tannehill's elite efficiency was in significant jeopardy. However, if Jones can remain healthy, his addition to the team will give Tannehill the best receiving duo he's worked with since joining the team.
Tannehill completed 18 of 26 passes for 165 yards, one touchdown and one interception in a wild-card round loss to the Ravens. He added two rushes for six yards. It appeared that Tannehill and the Titans' offense would have their way against the Ravens after an impressive opening drive that was capped by a 10-yard touchdown throw to A.J. Brown. However, the team failed to find the end zone again, limiting Tannehill's overall production. He also threw a key interception late in the fourth quarter as the Titans sought a game-tying touchdown. Despite the struggles, he still found Brown and Anthony Firkser for big gains throughout the contest, including completions of 35, 28 and 14 yards. Tannehill will look to bounce back from the disappointing postseason exit as the starting quarterback during the 2021 campaign.
Tannehill completed 18 of 27 passes for 216 yards and a touchdown and gained 38 rushing yards and two TDs on seven carries in Sunday's 41-38 win over the Texans. The Titans took full advantage of a matchup against one of the league's softest run defenses, with Tannehill equaling Derrick Henry in trips to the end zone. The quarterback wraps up the regular season with a career-high seven rushing TDs -- five of them coming in the last three games -- in addition to his career-best 33 passing TDs. Tannehill will now prepare for a duel with Lamar Jackson and the Ravens next Sunday in the wild-card round.
Tannehill completed 11 of 24 pass attempts for 121 yards, a touchdown and two interceptions Sunday. He rushed three times for 55 yards and another touchdown but also lost a fumble in a 40-14 loss to Green Bay. Tannehill and the entire Tennessee passing attack were under duress all evening after falling behind by two scores right out of the gate. The Titans' usually solid offensive line struggled mightily when asked to protect against the Packers' athletic edge rushers. A predictable gameplan combined with snowy conditions at Lambeau Field led to an inefficient and poor showing from every Titan aside from Derrick Henry. Luckily for his fantasy managers, Tannehill was able to rip off a big touchdown run to offset what would have been an ugly passing performance. Expect the Titans' signal-caller to perform better in a much softer matchup that will take place indoors against the Texans on Sunday.
Tannehill completed 21 of his 27 pass attempts for 273 yards, three touchdowns and no interceptions in Week 15 against the Lions. He added three rushes for 21 yards and two more scores. Tannehill had the Titans' offense moving with ease for the entire game, and he did his best Derrick Henry impression with two goal-line touchdown rushes. He also did plenty of damage with his arm, throwing for three touchdowns for the second time in his last three games. Tannehill's longest completion of the day came midway through the first quarter when he connected with Corey Davis for a 75-yard touchdown deep down the left sideline. He and the Titans will draw a stiffer test in Week 16 against the Packers.
