The Miami Dolphins will take on the Cleveland Browns Sunday making way for a possible huge day Fantasy Football wise for Ryan Tannehill. The Dolphins might be winless but it’s not for a lack of effort from their QB.
For the season, Tannehill has passed for 575 yards, two touchdowns, and two interceptions. But it was his outburst last week against a great New England Patriots defense that will catch plenty of owners eyes. The Browns are ranked 20th against the pass which should bode well for Tannehill and his receivers.
Look for Tannehill and Landry to hook up plenty of times as combined for 10 catches on 13 targets for 137 yards against the Patriots. If the running game can get going this will make Tannehill chances better to reach 30+ FFP in week 3. If the Browns can muster up enough talent to cover Landry they still must account for the speedy DeVante Parker. Parker and Tannehill connected on 8 receptions for 106 yards on 13 targets.
If the RB’s can keep the defense honest and the O-Line can keep defenders out of the backfield as he’s been sacked five times already Tannehill could have more opportunities to operate. TE, Jordan Cameron is as reliable as they come, as he helped keep the Patriots LB’s honest with five catches for 49 yards and a touchdown. That’s three receivers who can have huge days, then you add in Kenny Stills and his big play potential as he averages 18 yards per catch.
Tannehill gets plenty of criticism for not leading the Dolphins to the playoffs since his arrival in 2012 but his numbers have been steady. This season he has come out the gate hot and should continue his streak against the Browns. If you’re looking for a sleeper in week 3, Tannehill is your guy.
Ryan Tannehill is a must start against the Cleveland Browns.
