QB Tannehill does enough to lift Dolphins past Jaguars
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill was held under 200 passing yards in a comfortable 27-13 victory over Jacksonville in Week 8.

Tannehill hooked up with Rishard Matthews for a 3-yard strike late in the third quarter. He had another chance of scoring but was picked off by J.T. Thomas on a pass intended to Matthews in the end zone.

Tannehill compiled 196 yards through the air while completing 16 of 29 passes. He added a touchdown and an interception, registering a 73.3 passer rating. He also broke for a 30-yard run for the third consecutive game, becoming the first quarterback to reach that mark since Michael Vick in 2004. He was sacked three times and finished with 48 yards on five carries in a 27-13 victory.

Miami will take on the Chargers at home in Week 9.

Ryan Tannehill's rushing ability still noteworthy
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill's performance in Week 8 against the Jaguars got the job done, but it still has to be viewed as a disappointment given how well he had been playing before this.

Tannehill entered Week 8 with three straight games of at least 20 Fantasy points under his belt, but stumbled to just 15 points Sunday. One promising sign, however, was the continued reliance on Tannehill's legs, as he racked up 49 yards on the ground. He had a long run of 30 yards, becoming the first quarterback since Michael Vick in 2004 to have runs of 30-plus yards in three straight games.

Tannehill is a strong athlete who has come into his own as a weapon in the running game in recent weeks, which is enough to continue making him a viable Fantasy option. He probably won't throw the ball well enough to be a must-start option, but Tannehill is worth owning at least in two-QB leagues.

Dolphins relatively healthy entering Week 8 at Jacksonville
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

The Dolphins enter Week 8 at Jacksonville relatively healthy despite having 14 players on the final injury report for Sunday's game.

Jimmy Wilson (hamstring) was the only player that was unable to practice all week. He's been ruled doubtful for the game. Samson Satele (hamstring) was a limited participant in practice all week and was labeled questionable.

Meanwhile, Branden Albert (elbow), Charles Clay (knee), John Denney (knee), Cortland Finnegan (neck), Brandon Gibson (hamstring), Brian Hartline (finger), Lamar Miller (knee), Koa Misi (ankle), Shelley Smith (knee), Ryan Tannehill (ankle), Dallas Thomas (shoulder) and Philip Wheeler (shoulder, thumb) were all deemed probable.

Ryan Tannehill a Week 8 sleeper
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill is still widely available (owned in just 68 percent of CBSSports.com leagues) for Week 8 at Jacksonville. That's surprising considering his production over his past three games. Aided in part by an increased freedom to run the ball, Tannehill has averaged 24.0 Fantasy points per game during that stretch. For the season, Philip Rivers is averaging 25.0 Fantasy points per game.

Of course, Tannehill has benefited from a run of 30 or more yards the past two weeks, and that probably shouldn't be the expectation for him every week. But with Lamar Miller the only running game the Dolphins have, their quarterback has become more of a focal point on offense, throwing for two scores in four of six games this season.

For all their shortcomings offensively, the Jaguars have been pretty tough on defense the past three weeks, but they still rank only 30th against the pass, allowing 280.1 yards per game. Understandably, then, Jamey Eisenberg and Dave Richard both love Tannehill as a sleeper this week, ranking him 11th among quarterbacks, ahead of notables Matthew Stafford, Cam Newton and Nick Foles.

Waiver wire thin for quarterbacks this week
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

With an eye on Week 8 and beyond, Jamey Eisenberg tabbed his top quarterbacks on the waiver wire Tuesday, headlined by the Dolphins' Ryan Tannehill, who is owned in just 43 percent of CBSSports.com leagues at this point.

Additionally, Jamey eyes a few key stashes who might be worth your time if you are having trouble at the position or just have a roster spot to fill. Specifically, recovering Redskins QB Robert Griffin III (36 percent) and Johnny Manziel (13 percent), the Browns' backup, could be worth a flier.

Among quarterbacks with a lower ceiling who nonetheless have jobs locked down, Kyle Orton of the Bills (12 percent) and Alex Smith of the Chiefs (59 percent) have some value, with matchups against the Jets and Rams, respectively, for Week 8.
