Although RB Jay Ajayi was rightfully expected to thrive against the Niners' questionable run defense, Tannehill found himself able to exploit their equally beatable secondary on a regular basis, while the former ran into some tough sledding on the ground. Tannehill found eight different pass catchers on the afternoon, spreading the ball around effectively while tallying his third straight multi-touchdown game. While his fantasy value has been somewhat capped by the
Tannehill completed 24 of 34 passes for 172 yards, with two touchdowns and an interception in Sunday's 14-10 comeback win over the Rams.
Tannehill was unproductive in the first half, completing 10 of 13 passes for 51 yards, while playing in rainy weather. He didn't lead the Dolphins to any scoring drives until late in the fourth quarter, when he hooked up with Jarvis Landry on a 10-yard touchdown pass. The young QB later led a fantastic drive in the final couple of minutes, culminating with a nine-yard touchdown to DeVante Parker to complete the comeback win. He'll have a favorable matchup next week against the 49ers.
Tannehill completed 17 of 24 passes for 240 yards with two touchdowns and no interceptions in Sunday's 31-24 win over the Chargers. He also gained 16 yards on three rushes and fumbled once.
Tannehill was efficient and mistake-free while throwing multiple touchdowns for the first time since Week 3. The yardage total was also Tannehill's highest in the last three weeks, as the Dolphins' offense has increasingly shifted to a run-centric approach behind Jay Ajayi. Sunday's balance was likely ideal for head coach Adam Gase, who saw his fifth-year signal-caller fire a 39-yard scoring strike to Kenny Stills and also connect with Damien Williams for an 18-yard touchdown. Meanwhile, Ajayi contributed a solid 4.2 yards per carry, while the Miami defense sealed the win with a pair of fourth-quarter interceptions of Philip Rivers. Tannehill will seek to continue his strong play against the Rams in Week 11.
Tannehill completed 17 of 28 passes for 149 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's win over the Jets.
Tannehill failed to take advantage of a porous Jets secondary, throwing for under 205 yards for the fourth time in five weeks. Miami's offense was never incredibly pass-heavy, but has become even more reliant on the run with Jay Ajayi rushing for over 500 yards in the past three games. Tannehill is little more than a caretaker whose primary job is to hand it off.
Tannehill stayed mistake-free for the second straight week while once again allowing Jay Ajayi to carry the majority of the offensive load on his capable shoulders. The game script for the last two games has essentially been the ideal one for Tannehill, whose propensity for errors often rises in proportion to the amount of times he has to put the ball up. The fifth-year pro has now impressively completed 68.4 percent (39-for-57) of his passes over the last two games and has hit passes of 53 and 66 yards in those contests, with the latter a spectacular scoring connecting with Kenny Stills on Sunday. He'll look to continue this solid play against the Jets in Week 9 following the
