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.

Dolphins attribute read option to Ryan Tannehill's recent success
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Dolphins offensive coordinator Bill Lazor credited quarterback Ryan Tannehill's ability to successfully run the read option as a reason for his team's success as of late. Tannehill completed his first 14 pass attempts and finished 25 for 32 with 277 yards and two scores in a 27-14 victory over the Bears in Week 7.

"Every day, practice and games, he gets better at it," Lazor said, per the Palm Beach Post. "He's confident in it. It helped us win the game."

In the past six quarters, Tannehill has completed 37 of 47 attempts for 437 yards, with four touchdown passes. He's also carried the ball seven times for 88 yards and a score.

Dolphins' Ryan Tannehill has near-flawless outing Week 7
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill got back on track with a near-flawless performance, firing two touchdown passes in a Week 8 victory at Chicago.

Tannehill hooked up with Charles Clay for a 13-yard touchdown strike in the opening quarter and fopund Mike Wallace for a 10-yard touchdown pass in the second quarter. He started the game by completing his first 14 pass attempts and finished 25 for 32 on the afternoon with 277 yards and two touchdowns in a 27-14 victory. He was sacked four times and rushed for 48 yards on six carries.

Tannehill will look to keep rolling Week 8 at Jacksonville.

Good things happen when Ryan Tannehill runs
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill's ability to make plays with his legs had been downplayed in the team's offense early in the season, but he has been unleashed over the last three weeks, to great effect.

Tannehill rushed for 48 yards in the team's 27-14 win over the Bears, the third game in a row he has racked up at least 35. He had just 18 in the first three games of the season combined. The increased reliance on his running skills has opened things up for Tannehill, who is now riding arguably the best three-game stretch of his career.

Tannehill tossed two more touchdowns to go with 277 yards through the air Sunday, and has now topped 20 Fantasy points in each of his last three games. This is just the second time in his career he has accomplished that feat, with the last coming from Weeks 13 through 15 last season.

Tannehill has racked up 35 or more rushing yards eight times in his career, and has 15 passing touchdowns and eight interceptions in those games. Impressively, he is averaging 22.4 Fantasy points per game in those games, which establishes a clear pattern -- just ask the Miami Herald's Adam Beasley.

Tannehill played receiver before earning the quarterback job in college, so his athleticism is no secret. Now that the Dolphins are making use of it more often, he makes for an intriguing Fantasy player. He could be a solid starting option in Week 8 against the Jaguars.

As expected, Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill (ankle), running back Lamar Miller (knee), wide receiver Brian Hartline (finger) and tight end Charles Clay (knee) have all been labeled active for Sunday's game at Chicago in Week 7. All four offensive players were never in any danger of missing game action.
