  Titans | Ryan Tannehill shut down by Colts    Fri Nov 13, 01:40 AM

Tennessee Titans QB Ryan Tannehill completed 15 of 27 passes for 147 yards and a touchdown in a Week 10 loss to the Indianapolis Colts. He also ran twice for nine yards.

Footballguys view: Tannehill and the Titans offense was effective on the first drive, going down the field in four plays, and then moved the ball in fits and starts for the rest of the night. He's a desperation play against the Ravens next week.

  Titans | Ryan Tannehill throws two TDs    Sun Nov 8, 06:13 PM

Tennessee Titans QB Ryan Tannehill went 10-for-21 for 158 yards and two touchdowns against the Chicago Bears in Week 9.

Footballguys view: Tannehill wasn't asked to do much because the Titans scored a defensive touchdown and let the whole way. He'll have a tough matchup against the Colts next week and doesn't project as a QB1 for Week 10.

Tennessee Titans QB Ryan Tannehill completed 18-of-30 passes for 233 yards, two touchdowns and an interception in Week 8 against the Cincinnati Bengals and he ran twice for 20 yards.

Footballguys view: Tannehill was only modestly successful against the Bengals defense that made Baker Mayfield look like Russell Wilson last week. He'll face a tough Bears defense next week and isn't a clear QB1 for Week 9.

  Titans | Ryan Tannehill has flourished with Tennessee    Thu Oct 22, 03:32 PM

Tennessee Titans QB Ryan Tannehill has posted a league-best passer rating of 117.3 since he made his first start with the franchise against the Los Angeles Chargers on Oct. 20, 2019 (minimum 210 pass attempts). In his 15 regular-season starts over that time, he has completed 69.8 percent of his passes for 3,968 yards and thrown for 35 touchdowns versus seven interceptions.

Footballguys view: Get away from Adam Gase and good things happen. Tannehill has seen it all, and he's got a first-round quarterback skill set. He's a great fit with Titans OC Arthur Smith and has the trust of that locker room.

  Titans | Ryan Tannehill short on targets    Sat Oct 10, 12:36 PM

Tennessee Titans QB Ryan Tannehill likely will be missing several of his top targets in Week 5 Tuesday, Oct. 13, due to injury and COVID-19 protocols, and he said Saturday that WR Nick Westbrook and TE Geoff Swaim are among the pass-catchers who could see more looks.

Footballguys view: The Titans may get A.J. Brown back this week. That would help Tannehill greatly. We could also see Kalif Raymond do more with all these injuries...keep that in mind for DFS/GPP plays and if you need a crazy deep 'what the heck' flex.

Tennessee Titans QB Ryan Tannehill did not participate in the team's first padded practice Monday, Aug. 17, but head coach Mike Vrabel told reporters the absence was 'accounted for and everything is good.'

Footballguys view: Not a big deal. Tannehill likely had something else to take care of and is expected to be back in practice on Tuesday according to Vrabel.

  Titans | Ryan Tannehill deadly over the middle    Mon Jun 15, 09:05 PM

Tennessee Titans QB Ryan Tannehill posted an NFL-best passer rating of 154.2 on throws over the middle of the field in 2019, according to Inside Edge NFL.

Footballguys view: Tannehill works the middle of the field and will pick his spots when to attack down the field. He is helped by a tremendous ground game which opens things up as defenses jam the box to stop the run. Tannehill's primary weapons in the passing game are WR A.J. Brown and TE Jonnu Smith, and they should continue getting targeted early and often in 2020.

  Titans | Three-step drops suit Ryan Tannehill    Sun May 17, 05:19 PM

Tennessee Titans QB Ryan Tannehill completed 96 of his 138 pass attempts for 1,356 yards, 12 touchdowns and two interceptions on three-step drops in 2019. Those marks allowed him to post a league-best 123.9 passer rating on three-step drops.

Footballguys view: Three-step drops allow Tannehill to make quick decisions with the ball. The Titans run the ball really well and that usually makes defenses pay more attention to Derrick Henry. When Tannehill has to throw, the team likes to make things quick and decisive for the veteran quarterback.

  Titans | Ryan Tannehill excelled on difficult throws    Thu May 14, 06:09 PM

Tennessee Titans QB Ryan Tannehill led all qualified passers in 2019 with a completion percentage over expected of plus-8.0 percent, according to Next Gen Stats. The stat measures the difference between a QB's actual completion percentage and expected completion percentage based on the level of difficulty of their throws.

Footballguys view: Tannehill looked like a different quarterback during his time with the Titans last year. He was able to make difficult throws and receivers like A.J. Brown came through for him in a big way. We'll see if he can repeat and continue his performance this year now that the Titans have paid him a big price.

  Titans | Jonnu Smith working out with QB    Wed May 13, 03:48 PM

Tennessee Titans TE Jonnu Smith said he has been working out with QB Ryan Tannehill at a local park over the last few weeks so they can improve their chemistry.

Footballguys view: Smith took over for Delanie Walker for the Titans last year. Walker failed to stay healthy again, and the team moved on from the veteran this offseason. Smith posted career-best numbers in 2019 and could best those totals in 2020. He was the no.17 fantasy tight end last year (standard-scoring leagues) and could break into low-end TE1 range with the role all to himself. His current ADP is TE18 (13.07) in 12-team PPR leagues.

Tennessee Titans impending free-agent QB Ryan Tannehill agreed to terms on a new contract with the Titans Sunday, March 15, according to sources. Terms of the contract were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Reports indicate that $62 million is fully guaranteed. Tannehill's salary in 2020 and 2021 are fully guaranteed with this new deal. The team can now turn their attention to RB Derrick Henry. We should see Henry franchise-tagged before the start of the new league year.

Tennessee Titans impending free-agent QB Ryan Tannehill has talked with the Titans about a new contract.

Footballguys view: The Titans could always use the franchise tag on Tannehill if they don't get something done but we feel they don't want to do that. They also have to get something done with free agent running back Derrick Henry. We'll see if they can get both deals done before the start of the new league year next week.

  Titans | Ryan Tannehill still in Titans' plans    Thu Mar 5, 02:17 PM

Tennessee Titans QB Ryan Tannehill, a pending free agent, is still very much in the Titans' re-signing plans, and according to one report out of Boston, the team is using its purported interest in free-agent QB Tom Brady as leverage to lock in Tannehill at a lower cost.

Footballguys view: The first domino has to fall with Tom Brady. If he stays with New England or signs somewhere else other than Tennessee, the Titans will get Tannehill wrapped up. He'll be asked to hand off and play conservative football as the Titans want to run the ball and play great defense to make another playoff run in 2020.

  Titans | Ryan Tannehill switches agents    Sat Feb 15, 01:49 PM

Tennessee Titans QB Ryan Tannehill, a pending free agent, has has dropped agent Patrick Dye in favor of Brian Aryault and Todd France, according to sources.

Footballguys view: You hire Todd France when you want to get paid in a big way. That's what Tannehill is looking for from the Titans. He had a good time starting for them this year after they decided to bench Marcus Mariota. However, Tannehill's new contract should not break the bank. We'll see how the team safely constructs his contract in case Tannehill regresses in 2020 and beyond.

Brown posted three grabs for 51 yards, and TE Jonnu Smith factored in with three catches and 38 yards. WR Adam Humphries also contributed with four receptions for 25 yards, while TE Anthony Firkser found the end zone for a 22-yard touchdown on his only grab.

  Titans | Ryan Tannehill garners 2 awards    Fri Jan 17, 02:12 PM

Tennessee Titans QB Ryan Tannehill on Friday, Jan. 17, was announced as the winner of the Comeback Player of the Year and Most Improved Player awards by the Pro Football Writers of America.

Footballguys view: Tannehill had a rough tenure with the Dolphins, including an ACL tear and multiple years under Adam Gase, but he showed just how much Gase held him back and Marcus Mariota held back the Titans offense. He should get a franchise tag at worst and a long term deal like the one Kirk Cousins got at best this offseason.

Footballguys view: The Titans were able to move the ball on the ground with great success against the Ravens and that was their key to success. That's their formula for winning most every week and it worked to near perfection in the Divisional Round.

  Titans | Tennessee out to retain Ryan Tannehill    Sat Jan 4, 12:28 PM

Tennessee Titans QB Ryan Tannehill is expected to receive a contract extension or franchise tag from the team this offseason.

Footballguys view: Tannehill has made himself quite a bit of money with his play. He began the 2019 season as a backup to Marcus Mariota but took over as the starter after the team lost to the Broncos in Week 6. He won seven of 10 starts and led the team to the postseason.

Footballguys view: Mariota has been afraid to make mistakes so far this season and that's why he's not made many plays. Tannehill isn't a much better option and didn't solve any problems against the Broncos on Sunday. Either player is not a great option for Fantasy GMs.

  Titans | Ryan Tannehill is not going to start    Mon Jul 8, 02:49 AM

Tennessee Titans QB Ryan Tannehill will be the backup to QB Marcus Mariota, head coach Mike Vrabel said again on Sunday, July 7. He said Tannehill's job is to make Mariota better. 'His job as a backup - everybody's job as a backup - is to push the guy in front of him,' Vrabel said.

Footballguys view: They are certainly getting the message out that Mariota has nothing to worry about in 2019. This is a make-or-break year for Mariota as he is in the final year of his rookie contract. He has to stay healthy and prove that he's the long-term answer for the Titans. However, if Mariota gets banged up again then Tannehill would get some playing time. If Mariota is healthy, we think the Titans ride with him even if he struggles a bit. Tannehill is there to hold a clipboard if things work out the way the Titans want them to.
