Dolphins | Tannehill most-sacked QB since 2012

Fri, 05 Feb 2016 12:04:16 -0800

Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill was sacked 45 times in 2015 and has absorbed 184 over his four-year career, the most in the NFL over that time.

Fantasy Tip: Much of the blame belongs on the coaching instability in Miami, something the Dolphins hope they fixed with new head coach Adam Gase. Assuming Miami can address its underachieving offensive line in free agency and the draft, Tannehill is a prime bounce-back candidate next season under Gase, who worked wonders for Jay Cutler and the Chicago Bears last year. As such, Tannehill warrants consideration as a low-end QB1 in 2016.

Dolphins | Job security for Ryan Tannehill

Sun, 31 Jan 2016 11:25:21 -0800

Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill won't have any competition at quarterback this offseason, according to executive vice president of football operations Mike Tannenbaum. Tannenbaum is convinced Miami can win with Tannehill and does not feel compelled to draft a quarterback to compete with him.

Fantasy Tip: Tannehill played well in 2015, and he has increased his passing yardage every season, throwing for 4,208 yards last year in addition to 24 touchdowns. With Tannehill's own talent and the talent surrounding him, there's no reason to think he can't finish as a fringe QB1 next season.

Dolphins | Miami to have up-tempo offense

Fri, 29 Jan 2016 07:48:44 -0800

Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill will run an offense under new offensive coordinator Clyde Christensen that resembles what QB Peyton Manning ran with the Indianapolis Colts. "The attraction to this job is I really enjoyed those years in Indy where we were aggressive, we were no-huddle, the players had fun," Christensen said. "I would say this is the way I'd like to play. We did it an awful lot of years in Indy and it's kind of fun. There's always something new. It's wide open and you spread them out and you pop some runs in there. I like this style of play."

Fantasy Tip: Tannehill will be a consideration in the low-end QB1 range in drafts.

Dolphins | Adam Gase likes Ryan Tannehill

Thu, 21 Jan 2016 18:41:46 -0800

Miami Dolphins head coach Adam Gase said he believes he can limit the number of sacks QB Ryan Tannehill takes and help him improve. "I feel pretty good about what we can do with him," Gase said Thursday, Jan. 21.

Fantasy Tip: Tannehill has been sacked more than any other quarterback in the league since being drafted in 2012, but Gase could help in that area. Gase was the offensive coordinator for Chicago last year, and Jay Cutler was sacked nine fewer times than the previous season. Tannehill still has potential, and he could be worth a look as a low-end QB1 in 2016.

Dolphins | Ryan Tannehill probable for Week 17

Fri, 01 Jan 2016 13:57:26 -0800

Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill (thigh, knee) fully participated in practice Friday, Jan. 1, and he is probable for the Week 17 game against the New England Patriots.

Fantasy Tip: Tannehill ($5,400, 10.8% of cap) has averaged just 217 passing yards over his past four games while throwing only two touchdowns during the stretch. There is potential at FantasyScore given his low cap hit, however, Tannehill cannot be started with confidence given his recent form.

Dolphins | Ryan Tannehill takes part in practice

Thu, 31 Dec 2015 16:45:41 -0800

Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill (thigh, knee) fully participated in practice Thursday, Dec. 31.

Fantasy Tip: Tannehill ($5,400, 10.8% of cap) should be able to play against the New England Patriots in Week 17 despite the injury. Tannehill has only two touchdowns in his last four games and is not a strong starting option in any league.

Dolphins | Ryan Tannehill fully practices

Wed, 30 Dec 2015 15:21:53 -0800

Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill (thigh, knee) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Dec. 30.

Fantasy Tip: Tannehill ($5,400, 10.8% of cap) is considered day-to-day, but head coach Dan Campbell said he should be ready to play this week. That being said, Tannehill has been abysmal the last two weeks. He hasn't even thrown a touchdown the last two games, and has only thrown two touchdowns the last four weeks. He's not a viable starting fantasy quarterback for Week 17.

Dolphins | Ryan Tannehill day-to-day

Mon, 28 Dec 2015 12:31:45 -0800

Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill (ankle) is considered day-to-day, according to head coach Dan Campbell, but Campbell said Tannehill should be ready to play in Week 17.

Fantasy Tip: Tannehill and the Dolphins face the New England Patriots this week, who have been one of the better fantasy defenses against quarterbacks this season. Furthermore, Tannehill has only thrown two touchdowns in his last four games, and hasn't thrown any scores in his last two games. He's not a viable starting fantasy quarterback for Week 17.

Dolphins | Ryan Tannehill has 300-yard day

Sun, 27 Dec 2015 14:58:14 -0800

Miami Dolphins RB Ryan Tannehill threw 26 of 38 for 329 yards and no touchdowns in an 18-12 loss to the Indianapolis Colts.

Fantasy Tip: Tannehill ($6,000, 12.0% of cap) was limping around after the game, so stay tuned to see what happens with him in Week 17. The likelihood is he will play, but there are more effective options out there.

Dolphins | Ryan Tannehill has mediocre outing

Sun, 20 Dec 2015 19:17:22 -0800

Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill completed 20 of his 34 pass attempts for 216 yards, no touchdowns and no interceptions in the Week 15 game against the San Diego Chargers. He also ran three times for four yards and a score.

Fantasy Tip: Tannehill has faced some juicy fantasy matchups over the past couple of weeks but he hasn't been able to take advantage. Fantasy owners simply cannot trust him or most Dolphins.

Dolphins | Ryan Tannehill so-so on Monday

Mon, 14 Dec 2015 22:27:56 -0800

Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill completed 25 of his 41 pass attempts for 236 yards, one touchdown and no interceptions in the Week 14 game against the New York Giants. He also had four runs for 24 yards.

Fantasy Tip: Tannehill had it working with Jarvis Landry, and the run game was good in the first half, but the Miami quarterback likely needs at least one more NFL caliber receiver to help out. Rishard Matthews was inactive Monday and that certainly didn't help matters.

Dolphins | Ryan Tannehill has awful game

Sun, 06 Dec 2015 22:53:51 -0800

Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill completed just nine of his 19 pass attempts for 86 yards, one touchdown and no interceptions in the Week 13 game against the Baltimore Ravens. He also ran once for 11 yards.

Fantasy Tip: It was a terrible game against a Baltimore pass defense which has allowed 22 passing touchdowns and only four interceptions through 12 games. He simply cannot be trusted for fantasy purposes going forward.

Dolphins | Ryan Tannehill struggling

Mon, 30 Nov 2015 09:53:04 -0800

Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill has a completion percentage just above 60% in the last five games.

Fantasy Tip: Despite how bad Tannehill has been of late, he faces a great matchup against the Baltimore Ravens in Week 13, which should make him an under-the-radar option on FantasyScore if you want to save money for other positions.

Dolphins | Ryan Tannehill throws for 351 yards

Sun, 29 Nov 2015 16:47:04 -0800

Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill completed 33 of 58 passes for 351 yards, three touchdowns and an interception in a 38-20 loss to the New York Jets in Week 12.

Fantasy Tip: Tannehill padded his numbers in the second half after the game was well out of hand, but he has now thrown multiple scores in three straight games. His performances have rarely been pretty, but the final results have been respectable.

Dolphins | Rough Week 12 for Ryan Tannehill?

Sat, 28 Nov 2015 17:36:57 -0800

Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill faces the New York Jets in Week 12, and Tannehill has six touchdowns and eight interceptions in seven career starts against the Jets.

Fantasy Tip: Tannehill ($6,700, 13.4% of cap) has been tough to trust at FantasyScore, and he needs to be avoided all together against the a stout Jets defense that has always given him trouble.

Dolphins | Ryan Tannehill throws two TDs

Sun, 22 Nov 2015 14:22:42 -0800

Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill went 13-for-24 for 188 yards, two touchdowns and one interception against the Dallas Cowboys in Week 11.

Fantasy Tip: Tannehill has played well over the last several weeks and has four touchdowns in his last two games. He will be facing the New York Jets in Week 12 and may not be the best option for owners to consider.

Dolphins | Ryan Tannehill has trouble with fumbles

Sun, 08 Nov 2015 14:03:45 -0800

Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill threw for 309 yards but fumbled twice Sunday, Nov. 8, in a 33-17 loss to the Buffalo Bills. He also let a snap go through his fingers for a safety.

Fantasy Tip: Tannehill ($7,100, 14.2% of cap) only missed on nine of his passes, but it's the other statistics that counted more Sunday. The running game accounted for the touchdowns, so this could be one of those games that spells trouble especially if the Dolphins keep losing from here.

Dolphins | Ryan Tannehill likes throwing to left

Thu, 29 Oct 2015 12:36:14 -0700

Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill is perfect throwing to his left in the last two games, which includes going 7-for-7 on throws at least 10 yards downfield. In all, he's 21-for-21 for 365 yards and three touchdowns going to his left in the last two contests.

Fantasy Tip: The perfection going to his left is unlikely to continue against the New England Patriots tonight, but Tannehill ($7,000, 14.0% of cap) has a good chance of continuing his momentum against them. The Pats allow the fifth-most fantasy points to QBs this season, and the Dolphins will likely have to pass frequently to keep up with New England.

Dolphins | Ryan Tannehill logs perfect rating

Sun, 25 Oct 2015 17:41:28 -0700

Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill posted a perfect pass rating against the Houston Texans in Week 7, completing 18 of 19 passes for 282 yards and four touchdowns.

Fantasy Tip: Tannehill ($6,200, 12.4% of cap) is thriving in two games since interim head coach Dan Campbell took over, tossing six touchdowns and completing 83.3% of his passes. After a rough start, Tannehill once again deserves consideration at FantasyScore.

Dolphins | Ryan Tannehill unhappy with teammates

Fri, 09 Oct 2015 16:38:10 -0700

Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill was unhappy with some of his defensive teammates during practice last week because they were going after the ball during a drill when the defense was supposed to avoid making plays on the ball. Tannehill went after CB Tony Lippett after Lippett intercepted a pass during the drill, which angered some of the other defensive players. Tannehill's future with the team may be in question since the team has opportunities to release him after the 2016 season because of clauses he has the contract he signed this past offseason.

Fantasy Tip: Tannehill has struggled during the early part of the season with five interceptions in his last two games. He has thrown six touchdowns in the last three weeks but is completing only 56.7% of his passes. Owners probably should look for other options to use in their lineup most weeks.

Dolphins | Ryan Tannehill tosses two TDs

Sun, 04 Oct 2015 18:08:29 -0700

Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill completed 19 of his 44 pass attempts for 198 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions in the Week 4 game against the New York Jets. He also ran once for four yards.

Fantasy Tip: Tannehill ($6,400, 12.8% of cap) heads into the bye with work to do, and it's uncertain if the team will make a coaching change or not. Either way, it's a good idea to avoid Tannehill until he and the Miami offense show a little more consistency.

Dolphins | Rough outing on tap for Ryan Tannehill?

Fri, 02 Oct 2015 18:53:38 -0700

Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill faces the New York Jets in Week 4, and the Jets are allowing the fourth fewest passing yards this year and have allowed just three touchdown passes in three games.

Fantasy Tip: Tannehill ($6,400, 12.8% of cap) hasn't lived up to the hype this season, and he is unlikely to have a breakthrough against the Jets. Avoid him at FantasyScore this weekend.

Dolphins | Pressure coming for Ryan Tannehill

Fri, 25 Sep 2015 15:13:33 -0700

Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill has been sacked 23 times against the Buffalo Bills in the last three seasons, which is second only to the New England Patriots (25 sacks in six games). Tannehill has 1,028 passing yards and nine touchdowns against the Bills in six games and has completed 56.5% of his passes, though. He respects the Bills' defensive front and expects to be under pressure for much of the day in Week 3.

Fantasy Tip: Aside from the heavy sack total, Tannehill ($6,800, 13.6% of cap) has been decent against the Bills in his career. This Buffalo defense is perhaps their best, though, but they're also giving up the most passing yards per contest in the first two weeks. Tannehill could be a successful contrarian play on FantasyScore this weekend if you don't mind taking on some risk.

Dolphins | Ryan Tannehill should start

Fri, 25 Sep 2015 15:00:37 -0700

Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill (ankle, back) was limited in practice Friday, Sept. 25, but is probable for Week 3 against the Buffalo Bills.

Fantasy Tip: A back injury was added for Tannehill ($6,800, 13.6% of cap) Friday, but it apparently isn't serious enough to keep him out Sunday. It's a tough matchup for Miami, but believe it or not, Buffalo is allowing a league-high 346 passing yards per game after two weeks. If Miami struggles to run the ball, Tannehill could surprise with a big game, but it's a considerable risk on FantasyScore.

Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill (ankle) was a full participant in practice Thursday, Sept. 24.

Fantasy Tip: Tannehill ($6,800, 13.6% of cap) doesn't have the best matchup against the Buffalo Bills this week, but he has played well in his first two games. That being said, this may be the week to hold off on Tannehill on FantasyScore and look for better matchups at quarterback.

Thu, 24 Sep 2015 07:24:01 -0700

Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill hasn't thrown an interception in his last 150 attempts dating back to last December.

Fantasy Tip: Tannehill ($6,800, 13.6% of cap) has a tough matchup against the Buffalo Bills, but he's a midrange option on FantasyScore.

Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill (ankle) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Sept. 23.

Fantasy Tip: Tannehill ($6,800, 13.6% of cap) should be fine for the Week 3 game against the Buffalo Bills. Tannehill has played well over the first two games of the season but is facing a solid defense and owners may want to look at other starting options.

Dolphins | Ryan Tannehill turns in solid stat line

Sun, 20 Sep 2015 20:16:02 -0700

Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill completed 30 of his 44 pass attempts for 359 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions in the Week 2 game against the Jacksonville Jaguars. Oddly enough, he also led the team in rushing with 17 yards on three rushes.

Fantasy Tip: Tannehill ($6,800, 13.6% of cap) picked up the pace after a lackluster Week 1 stat line. He remains a top-notch FantasyScore option. Even though the Buffalo Bills were trampled in Week 2, Tannehill's matchup against the Bills in Week 3 is not exactly positive.

Dolphins | Ryan Tannehill hobbled

Sun, 20 Sep 2015 19:26:25 -0700

Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill (ankle) is dealing with a right ankle injury but said he'll be fine.

Fantasy Tip: Tannehill ($6,800, 13.6% of cap) certainly didn't look slowed in Week 2 after throwing for 359 yards and two scores, but his ankle is something to watch moving forward. The Week 3 matchup against the Buffalo Bills isn't ideal considering Miami's offense hasn't looked great yet, but Tannehill could be a nice contrarian play if they are forced to pass often against a tough run defense.

Dolphins | Jarvis Landry is go-to receiver

Tue, 18 Aug 2015 23:00:20 -0700

Miami Dolphins WR Jarvis Landry is considered the "go-to receiver" for QB Ryan Tannehill, according to beat writer Armando Salguero.

Fantasy Tip: Landry posted 84 receptions as a rookie in 2014, and he could be even better in 2015. FantasyScore players and those in formats which reward points per reception (PPR) will fall in love with Landry this season.

Dolphins | Mixed results for Ryan Tannehill

Fri, 07 Aug 2015 20:22:21 -0700

Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill completed 11 of his 17 passes for 102 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions during a scrimmage Friday, Aug. 7.

Fantasy Tip: Tannehill is a popular breakout candidate in 2015, and while he could certainly finish as a mid-range QB1, he isn't a sure-fire option by any means.

Dolphins | Ryan Tannehill airing it out

Thu, 06 Aug 2015 06:45:33 -0700

Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill has connected on a lot of deep passes in the first week of training camp. Beat writer Barry Jackson tweeted that he has never seen Tannehill as consistent with his deep ball before.

Fantasy Tip: That was one of the knocks on Tannehill, but he appears to be making strides with the deep ball. You may have to be aggressive and take him atop the low-end QB1 tier to get him this season.

Dolphins | Ryan Tannehill feeling comfortable

Wed, 05 Aug 2015 12:20:04 -0700

Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill said he is feeling more comfortable during training camp than he has in the past. "I feel a lot more comfortable, making quicker decisions, knowing exactly where to put the ball versus certain looks in these newer routes, that were new last year," Tannehill said.

Fantasy Tip: Tannehill is looking to improve on his stats from last season and will have a solid receiving corps to work with this season. Owners could consider Tannehill as a low-end No. 1 quarterback or a solid backup as the position.

Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill has looked sharp so far in training camp, according to Chris Perkins, of the Sun-Sentinel. Tannehill's accuracy has improved, which is an indication of enhanced footwork.

Fantasy Tip: Tannehill is a fringe QB1 in standard leagues but may take some time to acclimate to his new receiving corps.

Dolphins | Ryan Tannehill showing leadership

Mon, 29 Jun 2015 13:48:21 -0700

Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill considers himself a big leader in the Dolphins' organization. WR Kenny Stills said Tannehill has put the team on his shoulders and is letting them know that everyone must work hard every day to be successful.

Fantasy Tip: Tannehill is coming off a career year in which he threw for over 4,000 yards and 27 touchdowns. Tannehill has the weapons to have an even better season in 2015 and is a borderline QB1.

Dolphins | Ryan Tannehill likes WR corps

Wed, 27 May 2015 08:25:28 -0700

Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill praised his largely rebuilt wide receivers corps Tuesday, May 26, saying this is the most athletic group he has worked with in the NFL. He also praised them for being natural hands-catchers.

Fantasy Tip: Tannehill's receiving corps from the top to bottom, including tight end, has been completely redone, with the lone exception being 2014 rookie standout WR Jarvis Landry, the likely slot guy. Tannehill needs to build chemistry with his targets, but he is right -- this is easily the most athletic group he has worked with in his short NFL career. Fantasy owners are looking at a risky low-end QB1 or an ideal No. 2 target whose ceiling is vaulted.

Dolphins | Ryan Tannehill contract breakdown

Thu, 21 May 2015 09:09:51 -0700

Updating previous reports, Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill will earn $12.2 million in 2015, but only $745,000 of it will be in base salary. His 2016 base salary of $9.34 million is fully guaranteed. In 2017, the Dolphins will have five days into the league year to decide whether to fully guarantee his $17.47 million base salary, which essentially gives the Dolphins an opt-out if Tannehill struggles to meet expectations over the next two seasons. His contract contains no guaranteed money in 2019 and 2020, other than the prorated signing bonus in Year 5, so Miami could save $17 million in 2019 and $18 million in 2020 by releasing him.

Fantasy Tip: The Miami Herald's Armando Salguero said Dolphins executives looked at him like he had a horn growing out of his forehead when he asked what happens if Tannehill flops, which illustrates how much confidence the organization has in their young passer. Tannehill's 2015 season could get off to a rocky start with all of the offensive turnover possibly needing more time build chemistry, but there's no denying his new receiving corps is more explosive than the 2014 cast. He is a fringe QB1.

Dolphins | Ryan Tannehill signs extension

Mon, 18 May 2015 13:13:01 -0700

Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill signed an extension through the 2020 season Monday, May 18. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Fantasy Tip: Tannehill isn't exactly a top-tier fantasy quarterback, but this is a hefty extension for the young quarterback coming off a career year. With guys like Jarvis Landry, Kenny Stills, Greg Jennings and Jordan Cameron at his disposal, he's safely in the top-15 fantasy quarterback conversation.

Dolphins | Future bright for Ryan Tannehill?

Thu, 30 Apr 2015 19:48:29 -0700

Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill is coming off his best season as a pro, and the team has added WR Kenny Stills, WR Greg Jennings, WR DeVante Parker and TE Jordan Cameron in the offseason.

Fantasy Tip: Tannehill turned out to be a low-end QB1 last year, and with added firepower at his disposal and another year of experience under his belt, he should at least be able to duplicate his results in 2015. He is a great quarterback to target if you decide to pass on the high-end QB1 options in fantasy drafts.

Dolphins | Ryan Tannehill's option picked up

Wed, 29 Apr 2015 18:09:41 -0700

Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill had his fifth-year option picked up Wednesday, April 29, according to NFL Media's Ian Rapoport. The option is worth $16 million for 2016 and is fully guaranteed only in the event of an injury. The Dolphins plan to work out a long-term deal prior to the season opener.

Fantasy Tip: Tannehill will enter the season as a top-15 quarterback and will be a late-round option in fantasy drafts. That said, if Tannehill is able to take the next step in his development, it's not out of the question for him to perform as a top-10 player at his position.

Dolphins | Miami waiting on Ryan Tannehill option

Mon, 27 Apr 2015 11:17:29 -0700

Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill's fifth-year option has yet to be picked up. The deadline for the option to be picked up is Sunday, May 3. "Look, Ryan is here, we're excited he is here, we haven't made any decisions yet," vice president Mike Tannenbaum said. "We know when the deadline is and we'll make those decisions when we get there. The fifth-year option for 2016 is worth about $15 million.

Fantasy Tip: The Dolphins could still give Tannehill a long-term extension if they don't want to pick up his option. Tannehill had the best season of his career in 2014. A receiving corps of Jarvis Landry, Kenny Stills and Greg Jennings, not to mention Jordan Cameron and Charles Clay at tight end, should give Tannehill plenty of opportunities to succeed. He has QB1 potential but should still be considered a QB2 at this point.

Dolphins | MIA unsure on Ryan Tannehill extension

Fri, 24 Apr 2015 14:15:26 -0700

Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill is a player the team has not decided on if they will sign to a contract extension at this point, according to executive vice president of football operations Mike Tannenbaum.

Fantasy Tip: Tannehill likely will be a candidate for a contract extension at some point, but it may not happen until later in the offseason. Tannehill posted career highs in passing yards with 4,045 yards and in touchdowns with 27 in 2014. Tannehill probably will not be an every-week starter in 2015 but should be a solid option against certain matchup.

Mon, 13 Apr 2015 19:41:19 -0700

The Miami Dolphins are committed to getting a contract extension done with QB Ryan Tannehill before the start of the regular season. However, there have been no formal discussions between Tannehill's representatives and the Dolphins since the NFL Scouting Combine. If a new deal cannot be reached, the team can still exercise his fifth-year option to keep him under control through the 2016 season. He would be paid roughly $16 million for 2016 under that scenario.

Fantasy Tip: Tannehill posted a team record for completions in 2014, and he will now have Mike Pouncey protect him for a while after the center signed an extension. The Dolphins believe Tannehill can be a franchise quarterback, but fantasy owners should still consider him in the middle-third of all NFL starters at his position.

Dolphins | Ryan Tannehill may have option picked up

Mon, 23 Mar 2015 15:55:59 -0700

Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill's fifth-year option will be picked up if the team is not able to sign him to a contract extension over the next six weeks, according to sources. Tannehill would make $16 million in 2016 if his option is picked up. It is believed the Dolphins have talked about signing Tannehill to a six-year deal worth more than $100 million.

Fantasy Tip: Tannehill play very well this past season and will look to build on his success next season. He will have some different weapons to work with next season, and it is not known if that will affect his performance much. Tannehill probably will be a starting option on FantasyScore against certain teams next season.

Dolphins | Ryan Tannehill wants Mike Wallace back

Tue, 03 Mar 2015 11:03:39 -0800

Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill said he cleared the air with WR Mike Wallace, and the two have no problem. Tannehill said he wants Wallace to return, and the team will consider Tannehill's input when they make their decision on Wallace.

Fantasy Tip: Wallace is being difficult with Miami, as he's said he won't restructure his current contract. The Dolphins could save quite a bit of cash if they decide to cut Wallace outright. It may be in Miami's best interests to retain Wallace, however, if at least for the sake of Tannehill's future after they already cut Brandon Gibson and Brian Hartline. Wallace had a disappointing 2014 season, but he still managed 67 catches for 862 yards and 10 touchdowns. A move away from Miami probably wouldn't hurt his fantasy value. Stay tuned.

Dolphins | Still comfortable with Ryan Tannehill

Thu, 19 Feb 2015 23:11:51 -0800

Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill still has a backer in general manager Dennis Hickey, who admitted average salaries for starting quarterbacks are going up but the team is still high on Tannehill as a starter.

Fantasy Tip: Tannehill should be a safe bet for starting in 2015 fantasy leagues. Rumors are the team is working on a long-term agreement with Tannehill that could pay him between $15 million and $18 million a season, which would place him among the top earners. The team could sour on Tannehill just like the Chicago Bears did on Jay Cutler, but for now Tannehill appears to be a strong bet.

Thu, 12 Feb 2015 23:17:56 -0800

Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill and his contract extension will be a big priority in the offseason, but the Dolphins plan to secure a solid backup quarterback in free agency. Miami Herald reporter Armando Salguero speculates QB Matt Moore, who was the Dolphins' backup in 2014 and is an unrestricted free agent, may be the best option.
