Week 7: at Chicago Bears

Mark and Joe say: Tough matchup. Ryan Tannehill threw 23/31 for 278 yards passing, two TDs and one interception vs. the Raiders back in Week 4 (zero sacks taken), and followed up with 20/31 for 244 yards passing, two TDs and two interceptions thrown vs. Green Bay last weekend (one sack taken for -7 yards). He isn't posting Peyton Manning-like numbers, but he isn't in Christian Ponder mode, either. To date, Tannehill is the 23rd-ranked fantasy QB in the land, with 113/186 for 1,133 yards passing, eight TDs and five interceptions thrown, and 16/102/0 rushing. Mike Wallace (nine targets for 5/67/1 receiving over the past two games), Jarvis Landry (eight for 6/75/1) and Charles Clay (five for 3/35/0) have been Tannehill's main targets during the past two contests. Dion Sims caught a TD in London with two targets for 1/18/1 receiving - Brian Hartline had two targets but zero receptions against the Packers, while Brandon Gibson has been sidelined due to a hamstring injury, leaving Landry as the #2 wide receiver across from Wallace lately. The Bears' pass D ranks 17th in the league, averaging 246.2 net passing yards allowed per game, with 10 passing scores given up vs. eight interceptions (tied for third in the NFL) and 15 sacks (tied for seventh) generated this year. Matt Ryan was limited to 19/37 for 245 net yards passing, one TD and one interception thrown last week (four sacks taken for -26 yards) while two weeks ago Cam Newton threw 19/35 for 231 net yards, two TDs and one interception (two sacks taken for -24 yards). The Bears' pass D is very solid this season, overall. This looks like a tough matchup for the visiting Dolphins.

Recent Game Summaries

2014 Week 4 vs OAK (4 / 2 / 26 / 0 rec)

Gibson struggled through another drop-filled afternoon on the other side of the pond in London on Sunday. Neither of the drops proved costly, of course, as the Dolphins ran over the Raiders, but the fact remains. Gibson was known for drops on St. Louis, but this season he's breaking new ground. He still remains the "starter" in three-wide sets, but Bill Lazor seems content to rotate all of his #3 WRs. On Sunday, Gibson had 33 snaps, Landry had 32, and Rishard Matthews had 31. Of course, it was a blowout, so Mike Wallace only had 35, but for now, it looks like a muddy situation. Gibson's two catches came on a designed swing pass and a designed screen, so even Lazor knows the issues he could be going through with his hands. Gibson's after the catch wiggle will always be enticing, but he's just too inconsistent catching the ball to garner any more playing time, and ideally, Jarvis Landry will become the full-time #3 at some point this season.
