The Miami Dolphins would like QB Ryan Tannehill to improve his accuracy this offseason. He completed 65.7 percent of his passes in wins this season while completing only 54.3 percent of his passes in losses.
Huddle Up: Overall, Tannehill certainly wasn't horrible -- completing 58.3 percent of his throws. That was better than Andrew Luck (53.1) but somewhat paled in comparison to fellow rookies RGIII (70.3) and Russell Wilson (68.4).

Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill said the game has slowed down for him. He is seeing the field better and understands his personnel more.
Huddle Up: The rookie was in a funk for a few weeks in what looked like nice matchups, then turned things around against a good Seattle defense last week. His timing could not be better from a fantasy football perspective; Tannehill has some nice matchups down the stretch, starting with a Patriots defense that is near the bottom of the league.

Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill threw for only 141 yards in completing 14 of 28 passes Thursday night in a 19-14 loss to the Buffalo Bills. He tossed a TD pass but threw a pair of interceptions in the game's final 2 minutes.
Huddle Up: The rookie QB has disappointed in back-to-back weeks with a combined 5 interceptions and only 1 TD and 358 passing yards in what were favorable matchups against the Titans and Bills. If there's such a thing as a rookie wall, it appears Tannehill has hit it head-on.

Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill (knee) completed 22 of his 38 pass attempts for 290 yards, one touchdown and no interceptions in the Week 9 game against the Indianapolis Colts. He also ran once for minus-1 yard and fumbled, although that one was recovered.
Huddle Up: The rookie first-rounder was a big question mark after getting injured early in the Dolphins' win over the Jets in Week 8, but held his own in a duel with fellow first- round QB Andrew Luck on Sunday. Definitely continue to use Tannehill as a backup or bye-week fill-in.

Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill (knee) was limited in practice Friday, Nov. 2, and is listed as questionable for Week 9.
Huddle Up: It looks like this could come down to a game-time decision for Tannehill. The Dolphins would probably like to keep their prized quarterback in one piece, and Matt Moore is more than capable of leading them to victory if Tannehill cannot go. Neither is a solid fantasy start, but Hartline and Bess take a bit of a hit if Moore is the man in the pocket.

Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill (knee, thigh) was working with the first-team offense during the media-access portion of practice Thursday, Nov. 1. He was wearing a brace and had a compression sleeve over his left knee. Tannehill looks to be favoring his knee at this point but appears to be on track to play Week 9.
Huddle Up: Most signs are pointing toward a Tannehill return, but either way it shouldn't affect the Dolphins' other offensive players much at all as Matt Moore is one of the league's better backups.

Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill underwent an MRI Monday, Oct. 29, and it did not show any structural damage. The MRI did show a bone bruise on his knee and a deep thigh bruise.
Huddle Up: No word yet on if Tannehill is expected to miss any time. Matt Moore is a quality backup and would be in line for more playing time should Tannehill's injuries force him from the lineup.

Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill (knee, thigh) is determined to play in Week 9 after suffering a hyperextended left knee and deep thigh bruise in Week 8. Tannehill is scheduled for an MRI Monday, Oct. 29. 'I was optimistic about getting back in the game, and I'm optimistic about getting ready to go next week,' Tannehill said. 'I could've gone if it was an emergency situation. (I) was trying to get it loose so I could be good to go, (but) we were up big and (backup quarterback) Matt (Moore) was doing a good job.'
Huddle Up: Tannehill has been better than anticipated, and hopes to build on a solid first half of the season.

The Miami Dolphins have quickly evolved into a passing team thanks to opposing teams stacking up the line of scrimmage in order to force QB Ryan Tannehill to beat them through the air. Tannehill has responded in recent weeks with personal bests in completion percentage and passer rating, and he hasn't thrown an interception in the last two games. RB Reggie Bush (knee) is still not 100 percent, and RB Daniel Thomas (concussion) has missed two games this year with two separate concussions.
Huddle Up: Andrew Luck, RGIII -- or even Russell Wilson -- he hasn't been with a 4-to-6 TD pass-to-interception ratio, but Tannehill still rates as somewhat of a fantasy surprise so far. Many fantasy pundits were predicting disaster after his 3-interception outing in Week 1, but Tannehill has since settled in and developed a nice rapport with WRs Brian Hartline, Davone Bess and TE Anthony Fasano. Given the right matchup, he definitely can be used as a spot starter in leagues.

Rookie quarterback Ryan Tannehill played two series, completing 5-of-7 passes for 35 yards Wednesday night in the Miami Dolphins' preseason finale against the Dallas Cowboys.
Huddle Up: Now it's on to the games that count for Tannehill, selected with the eighth overall pick in April's draft. For what it's worth, the QB finished the preseason 41 of 78 for 414 yards, a TD and an interception. Up first are the Houston Texans and what is expected to be one of the league's top defenses. For the time being, Tannehill isn't a fantasy starting QB outside of super-deep or large, two-QB leagues.

The Miami Dolphins appear to be a pass-first offense this season, as the unit's pass-to-run ratio in their preseason game Friday, Aug. 24, was 39-to-24. QB Ryan Tannehill had 27 attempts in less than three quarters of work. However, the philosophy does not appear to be a good fit for the talent the team has. With the West Coast offense built on precision passing, the combination of an inexperienced quarterback and little talent at the receiver and tight end positions makes it difficult to establish.
Huddle Up: Miami seemingly has better weapons at RB with Reggie Bush, second-year man Daniel Thomas and draft pick Lamar Miller. Still, Tannehill is a top-10 draft pick, and the Dolphins have been eager to see what he has in the preseason. Don't be surprised if Miami is a little more run-oriented cometwo weeks in Week 1, but also consider that new coach Joe Philbin comes from a passing background in Green Bay.

Miami Dolphins head coach Joe Philbin has named QB Ryan Tannehill as the team's starting quarterback.
Huddle Up: Not exactly a stunning development, though it was originally thought Matt Moore would hold off the rookie for at least a little while. Tannehill has performed better than anticipated during the preseason however, and earned himself the position.

If Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill is not named the starting quarterback for Week 1, he will likely start at some point early in the season.
Huddle Up: Tannehill hasn't looked bad this preseason, and as the Dolphins don't have much else going on offensively they may as well give the keys to their franchise quarterback and let the on-the-job training begin.

Miami Dolphins rookie Ryan Tannehill completed 11-of-23 passes for 100 yards in Friday's preseason game against the host Carolina Panthers.
Huddle Up: Tannehill played the whole first half, and directed one scoring drive -- a 15-play, 71-yard march in the second quarter -- capped by Daniel Thomas' 1-yard run. In the meantime, the Cam Newton led Panthers dominated the first half, outscoring Miami, 20-7, en route to a 23-17 win. By the way, Matt Moore, the QB who most Dolphins observers feel will start in Week 1, didn't exactly set the stat sheet on fire, finishing 5-of-15 for 57 yards.

Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill will start the preseason game Friday, Aug. 17.
Huddle Up: The hype train is starting to leave the station for the rookie out of Texas A&M. A good performance with the first team by the rookie could lead to being named the Week 1 starter. Tannehill is only draftable in deep or two-quarterback leagues, but he has the potential to put up big points from time to time.

Miami Dolphins RB Reggie Bush said he believes QB Ryan Tannehill will start the season on the bench. Bush said it would allow Tannehill to learn by watching the veterans from the bench and be prepared for when he is called on to play.
Huddle Up: Let's call it like it is: Bush 'wants' Tannehill on the bench. Rookie QBs invite eight and nine men in the box.

Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill is not in the running to start right now due to his untimely mistakes, particularly when throwing into traffic. Head coach Joe Philbin has made it clear that turnovers will not be tolerated, so for the time being Tannehill will continue to work as the No. 3 quarterback. WR Brian Hartline said Tannehill has shown flashes during offseason workouts, adding Tannehill has a presence about him. "He definitely has a presence," Hartline said of Tannehill. "Which is great. He's a guy that he knows what he wants, he knows the offense. I think that definitely helps him a lot ... For me, I feel like the first couple of weeks, you hope to see flashes. Because you've got to have something there, and there's no doubt in my mind that I saw flashes. The ball coming out of his hand is good, is great. His timing is really good. On a couple of routes, you can tell he's really comfortable. He can plant that foot and release without any gather step, so there's definitely some flashes."
Huddle Up: Flashes are nice, but right now the Dolphins need something more--something they're more likely to get from David Garrard or Matt Moore. Tough to bank on any of the Miami quarterbacks in a redraft, but there is obvious upside to Tannehill in a dynasty league.

Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill was intercepted on his first pass under center in an 11-on-11 situation in practice Wednesday, June 20.
Huddle Up: His wife, ex-Texas A&M cheerleader Lauren Ulfer, has about as good a chance to start for Miami this year as Tannehill does.
