Ryan Tannehill injury: Fantasy status improving with progress in practice

Chris Trotman

Ryan Tannehill took all of the Dolphins' first-team snaps on offense during practice Thursday, and appears set to start Sunday against the Colts. We break down the fantasy implications.

Ryan Tannehill took all of the Miami Dolphins' first-team offensive snaps during practice Thursday, and showed good mobility despite wearing a brace and compression sleeve over his left knee, the Palm Beach Post reports. The rookie quarterback appears to be set to start Sunday against the Indianapolis Colts.

Tannehill suffered a hyperextended left knee and deep thigh bruise during last week's game against the New York Jets. Matt Moore took over and played reasonably well, but will like be back on the bench this week.

Fantasy Impact: Tannehill appears to be safe to use in your fantasy lineup this week. Whether he'll be of any help depends on your league and how desperate you are. The rookie has played well in recent weeks, but he is still a mediocre fantasy option in most formats. Tannehill has thrown for under 250 yards in all but one game this season, and has four touchdown passes to six interceptions.
