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.

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.
