Ryan Tannehill Loses Fantasy Football Value Versus Falcons

The third preseason game against the Falcons was not the most impressive performance from Ryan Tannehill. We break down the fantasy implications.

Ryan Tannehill completed just 11 of 27 passes for 112 yard and an interception against the Falcons in his third preseason game. His chemistry looked off at times, and his accuracy was shaky throughout his three quarters of play.

Analysis: To be fair, Tannehill's numbers were brought down by his receivers. Anthony Fasano alone dropped three passes, one right at the goal line. His offensive line did not do him any favors either. The rookie was pressured often and sacked twice. Miami knows there will be growing pains, and the chemistry issue obviously will improve over time. Matt Moore did not look good in the action he saw either, so this is a plus for Tannehill's stock. The Dolphins final preseason game on the road in Dallas will be another test for Tannehill, but he is likely the starting quarterback at this point barring a complete debacle in his fourth appearance.
