Week 3: vs Oakland Raiders

All WR vs OAK

FBG says: Good matchup. Ryan Tannehill continues to dink and dunk his way to marginal, ball-control success. When presented with a positive game script and plenty of breathing room, he's a capable leader, as displayed last week (17-of-23 passing and 2 touchdowns). Tannehill is still loath to throw downfield much, so there's not much pressure put on opposing defenses. Against the Jets, he didn't complete a single pass more than 15 yards downfield - not that he has the weaponry to do so. But he utilizes underneath targets Albert Wilson and Danny Amendola enough to move the chains, and he's cut down on his poor, erratic downfield prayer throws. It's not wise to look to this low-volume, low-impact unit for upside. But it's encouraging to see it function, if only as a sanitized, clock-bleeding "attack." Without Khalil Mack, the Oakland pass rush is virtually nonexistent. They rely almost solely on one man, Bruce Irvin, to generate pressure. And while Irvin is a talented, seasoned pro, he's not enough to create real nightmares for opposing offenses. As a result, downfield plays keep opening up as receivers easily beat the Raiders' struggling cornerbacks. Brandin Cooks had little trouble finding holes in Week 1, while Cooper Kupp and Emmanuel Sanders have consistently made splash plays, especially from the slot. Rashaan Melvin was definitively beaten by Sanders last week on more than one occasion. This unit isn't terrible, but without a real pass rush, it's always beatable.

Recent Game Summaries

2018 Week 2 vs NYJ (4 / 4 / 32 / 0 rec)

All of the targets vacated by Jarvis Landry when he left for Cleveland were supposed to be picked up by Amendola. He was brought in as the big off season signing and thus far it has not paid off. Amendola was the only wide receiver to catch all of his targets this week but he was unable to break free or create any extra separation. Tannehill did not do a great job leading him up the field and Amendola was tackled almost immediately on every play. His longest play of the day was a 14-yard pass, but he was also injured on the same play. He did manage to come back into the game and make one more reception, but he looked a little slow and was not utilized much for the rest of the game. It will be interesting to see if he makes the injury report this week.

2018 Week 1 vs TEN (6 / 4 / 26 / 0 rec)

The Dolphins' offense was a one man show this week with everything going through Stills. Amendola played in the slot and caught short passes. Tannehill was a little late with the ball and never quite hit Amendola in stride. His longest reception came out to be 8 yards and he had no chance to move the ball any further. Amendola has a very similar skill set to Stills and it will be hard to compete if Stills continues to excel. There should be ample YAC opportunity for Amendola as Tannehill gets more accurate and builds more rapport with his receivers.
