Ryan Tannehill went 21-for-29 passing for 185 yards and two touchdowns during the Dolphins' win over the Rams on Sunday. We break down the fantasy implications.

Ryan Tannehill went 21-for-29 passing for 185 yards and two touchdowns during the Miami Dolphins' win over the St. Louis Rams on Sunday. The rookie did not throw an interception for a second straight game, and was able to find Marlon Moore and Anthony Fasano for scores.

Tannehill now has 1,454 yards passing on the season, with four touchdowns and six interceptions. He will take on a beleaguered New York Jets secondary in Week 8 coming off a bye week for the Dolphins.

Fantasy Impact: Tannehill is owned in just nine percent of Yahoo! Fantasy Football leagues, but he has been a relatively viable fantasy option the last three weeks. He certainly seems to be coming into his own as a quarterback, though that may not mean he is any more than a backup in standard leagues.

Temper your enthusiasm for now. This is the same quarterback that struggled in preseason and early during the regular season. Tannehill is worth keeping an eye on to see if he keeps improving, however. While he likely isn't better than your current starter, he could be worth stashing in keeper leagues.
