Fantasy football start/sit advice, Week 4: Ryan Tannehill a tempting play vs. Bengals

Trusting Ryan Tannehill as your fantasy QB can prove to be fatal, but he has a lot of upside this week vs. the struggling Bengals.

A new offensive coordinator and head coach have done little to change the enigmatic nature of Ryan Tannehill.

In three games this season, the Miami Dolphins' quarterback has thrown for 892 yards and five touchdowns, but also has four interceptions, one fumble lost, and six sacks taken. Depending on what your league's scoring settings are, Tannehill has been somewhere between bad and above-average.

That could change this week against a Cincinnati Bengals defense struggling vs. the pass. They have allowed the fifth-most fantasy points to quarterbacks this season, which includes the third-most touchdown passes. All of this could make Tannehill a sneaky fantasy play this week, with a lot of upside based on how this Bengals defense has been performing.

Fantasy Impact: Yahoo! has Tannehill ranked as the 18th-best quarterback for Week 4. Try to find a better option than Tannehill, but do not feel bad if you end up settling on him. He may be the biggest boom-or-bust player of Week 4.
