2014 Outlook: Quality Backup

Last updated on Jun-23-2014 by Mark Morales-Smith

SNEAKY UPSIDE: This may very well be Ryan Tannehill's make-or-break year. Despite having a disastrous offensive line that allowed him to be sacked 58 times, Tannehill was much-improved in 2013. He doubled his touchdowns from 12 to 24 and threw for over 600 more yards. It wasn't all good news though, because unfortunately the Dolphins once again missed the playoffs and Tannehill really struggled with his deep ball. That problem may have been due to lack of time, but much of free agent signing Mike Wallace's struggles were blamed on Tannehill. With new offensive coordinator Bill Lazor, Tannehill will get every opportunity to throw the ball and throw it often. Expect Tannehill's attempts, completions, yards, and touchdowns to increase. His job will be to keep the turnovers down and completion percentage up. It is also expected for him to carry the ball more than 50 times this season.

Miami has taken great strides to improve their offensive line by signing offensive tackle Branden Albert from the Chiefs. They also drafted Tennessee OT Ja'Waun James in the first round and North Dakota State linemen Billy Turner in the third. Tannehill doesn't necessarily have the greatest weapons, but has more than enough to be successful. If the line is in fact improved, the running game should take some pressure off the passing game. Wallace reportedly has a better grasp on the offense this season, so he should be able to take the top off the defense. He has plenty of short to mid-range targets in Hartline, Brandon Gibson, Rishard Matthews, Charles Clay, and rookie Jarvis Landry. Knowshon Moreno has also come over from Denver and is a proven pass catcher out of the back field. After playing only one full season at QB at Texas A&M, there was expected to be a learning curve, but patience is rare in the today's NFL. Everything is set for Tannehill to have a breakout season, now he just has to make it happen. Tannehill is a very good fantasy backup with upside.

2013 FFToolbox Staff Mock Draft #1
June 18th, 2013
16.08 DLF.com - TheFFGhost - Tannehill could be a very sneaky pick when this season is all said and done. He will be at the controls of a revamped and suddenly potent offensive unit in Miami. He may be a bye weak filler but if Brady does falter I think Tannehill will keep me competitive.
2013 FFToolbox Expert Mock Draft #2

2013 FFToolbox Expert Mock Draft #1

16.04 FFMagicMan - Since I've touted two of his weapons in Hartline and Keller, I'll grab the trigger-master as my QB2 in case RG3 stumbles in his comeback. Tannehill offers a lot of potential, and only losing one point per interception versus two (or three), makes me fine with him as my backup.
