Ryan Tannehill QB MIA 3 weeks ago

Tannehill met with Peyton Manning earlier this spring to study new coach Adam Gase's offensive scheme, NFL.com reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Tannehill was reportedly sought out by Manning to go over Gase's offense, which Manning ran with the Broncos in the two years prior to last season. Due to CBA restrictions, Tannehill wasn't able to directly meet with his new head coach, so Manning's tutoring served as valuable alternative. Thanks to Manning, Tannehill was able to dive into his new playbook while receiving quality pointers on various intricacies, all of which are aimed to help his transition into Gase's offense this season.

Tannehill's struggles passing this past season are an area new coach Adam Gase intends to improve by building better protection going forward, the Palm Beach Post reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Tannehill was sacked a whopping 45 times during 2015, making him the third-most sacked quarterback in the league. Along with taking so many hits, Tannehill's passer rating and completion percentage dropped. Nonetheless, like he did with Jay Cutler in Chicago, Gase intends to quell any quarterback concerns with the help of improved protection, showing his support for Tannehill as they enter their first season together.

Tannehill completed 25 of 38 passes for 350 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's 20-10 victory over the Patriots. He also gained 17 yards on three rushes and recovered a fumble.

Competitive Edge Analysis

In what has to be considered one of the unlikeliest outcomes of the 2015 season, the Dolphins thoroughly stymied a Patriots team with plenty of incentive and the much maligned Tannehill spearheaded the victory. He posted his second consecutive 300-yard performance, and his 9.21 yards per attempt was a season high.The 26-year-old finished the 2015 campaign with six 300-yard games, and has progressively increased his passing yards through his first four seasons. He also tied a career-low of 12 interceptions this season, but did suffer a career-high eight fumbles. While there are currently whispers that the team is willing to part ways with the fourth-year quarterback if the incoming head coach were to want to clean house at the position, Tannehill's 4,208 passing yards and 24:12 TD:INT ratio wouldn't be readily replaced by any free agent or 2016 draft choice.

Tannehill (thigh/knee) is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Patriots.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Tannehill is available if you need him this week, but his production over Miami's last four games (the last three of which were losses) has been spotty, with the QB having recorded just two TDs versus one pick during that span.

Tannehill (thigh/knee) is listed as probable for Sunday's game against the Patriots, the Miami Herald's Adam Beasley reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Tannehill will be out there if you need him this week, but his production has been underwhelming over Miami's last four games -- of which the last three were losses -- a span in which Tannehill has recorded just two TDs, versus one pick.

Tannehill (thigh/knee) practiced fully Wednesday.

Competitive Edge Analysis

After practicing without limitation on Wednesday, Tannehill appears to be in no danger of missing Sunday's season finale against the Patriots. That said, he's been underwhelming over the Dolphins' last four games, three of which resulted in Miami defeats, a span in which Tannehill has recorded just two TDs, while being picked off once.

Dolphins head coach Dan Campbell said Tannehill (leg) should be ready for Sunday's game against the Patriots, Adam Beasley of the Miami Herald reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Campbell said Tannehill is considered day-to-day, following yet another beating in Sunday's loss to the Patriots. The quarterback's practice status will still be worth keeping a close eye on, especially with the Dolphins having little incentive to risk further injury.

Tannehill (leg) was seen with his left leg completely wrapped in the locker room after the Week 16 loss to the Colts, Adam Beasley of the Miami Herald reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Tannehill appeared to have been simultaneously hit in the lower leg by both teammate Jordan Cameron and the Colts player he was blocking, Erik Walden, early in the third quarter. The fourth-year quarterback limped off the field in pain after the play, but returned on the Dolphins' next possession and finished the contest without missing any time. Tannehill's status will likely be updated again on Monday.

Tannehill completed 26 of 38 passes for 329 yards and an interception in Sunday's 18-12 loss to the Colts. He also gained 28 yards on one rush and was sacked six times on the afternoon.

Competitive Edge Analysis

The five-year pro managed his fifth 300-yard passing game of the season, but as was the case in the other four contests, his effort Sunday came in a Miami loss. Tannehill notably managed his best yards-per-attempt figure (8.66) in the last seven games, and did complete a nice deep heave down the left sideline to rookie DeVante Parker in the first half. He was also under significant duress in the pocket throughout the afternoon, making his solid 68.4 completion percentage all the more impressive. Tannehill also threw an interception for the first time in four games, and his 12 picks on the season equal the career-low he established last season. Despite the fact that the 27-year-old needs only 142 yards passing in the season finale versus the Patriots to reach the 4,000-yard mark for the second straight season, Tannehill and the entire Dolphins offense have undeniably underwhelmed throughout the course of the 2015 campaign.

Tannehill completed 20 of 34 passes for 216 yards with no touchdowns or interceptions in Sunday's 30-14 loss to the Chargers. He netted four yards and a touchdown on three rushes, and fumbled once but recovered.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Tannehill led another lackluster showing by the Dolphins offense, and completed under 60 percent of his passes for the fourth time in the last five contests. He also failed to throw a touchdown for the third time this season, and struggled to break the 200-yard mark. He fell short of a 7.0 YPA metric for the fourth consecutive week as well, and only slightly salvaged his fantasy value on the day with a trip to the end zone courtesy of a one-yard keeper in the fourth quarter. Miami's inking of Tannehill to a six-year, $96 million contract extension through 2020 last offseason is looking increasingly questionable, and it will be interesting to monitor how the incoming coaching regime will handle the quarterback situation.
