Summary

With a new offensive coordinator, quarterback Ryan Tannehill enters his third year having to learn at least part of a new playbook and needing to get used to new OC Bill Lazor's speedier tempo as well. It's a lot to ask in some ways of a guy who was erratic and held the ball far too long last season. On the other hand, former Mike Sherman looked a bit overwhelmed last season, and Lazor is a very creative play caller. The offensive line has been improved, there is another weapon in the backfield in Knowshon Moreno, and the team added some receiving help in the draft. Tannehill knows he needs to take a big step and has the talent around him to do it. We saw signs he was settling down at the end of last year before he imploded against the New York Jets. Prior to that three interception, one touchdown game, he had thrown eight touchdowns and just two interceptions over four games. Ultimately, Tannehill has as much to prove to fantasy owners as he does to the Dolphins, and while he has upside, he's a just a safe QB2 right now. (May 23)

Latest News

Dolphins | Mike Wallace works extra (Mon Aug 25, 03:23 PM) - Miami Dolphins WR Mike Wallace stayed after practice to work with QB Ryan Tannehill.

Our View: Wallace has a $17 million cap number this year. It's good to see him show extra dedication to his craft. The new Bill Lazor offense should be a good fit for Wallace. The Dolphins have been moving him around the formation in order to get him open cleanly. His current ADP is WR33 (7.05) in 12-team PPR leagues.

Dolphins | Ryan Tannehill to play longer (Thu Aug 14, 05:43 PM) - Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill will reportedly play longer this week than he did in last week's preseason game.

Our View: The team needs a very long look at the guy they are hoping will carry them to the playoffs this season. Tannehill is a very low end QB2 for fantasy purposes though the tools are there for some nice production. We just don't know that you can trust him to give you more than backup value and only a little of that.
