Ryan Tannehill went 18-for-30 passing for 200 yards during Sunday's game between the Dolphins and Raiders. We break down the fantasy implications.

Ryan Tannehill went 18-for-30 passing for 200 yards and two total touchdowns during Sunday's game between the Miami Dolphins and the Oakland Raiders. He did not throw an interception one week after throwing three against the Houston Texans. Tannehill ran in one score from the two-yard line, and found Anthony Fasano in the end zone on a 14-yard pass in the fourth quarter.

Fantasy Impact: While it's nice to see Tannehill improving, he still isn't much of a fantasy option except in the deepest of formats. Still, as long as defenses have to somewhat respect the rookie, it will help teammates like Reggie Bush (26 carries, 172 yards rushing) put up good numbers.
