Dolphins Beat: 'Even the deep throws are improved' for QB Ryan Tannehill

Miami Herald - [Full Article]

Dolphins players have been effusive about how Ryan Tannehill has looked all offseason. Even the deep throws are improved. “Ryan is way better than last year and more of a leader,” tight end Dion Sims said.

Fantasy Impact:

In his first three seasons, Tannehill finished #24, #16 and finally #9 in quarterback scoring. That’s a nice trend. The Dolphins spent the offseason trying to upgrade his weapons, and ended up with Jordan Cameron at tight end to go along with Kenny Stills, DeVante Parker and Greg Jennings at receiver. Sure, they traded away Mike Wallace and let Charles Clay walk, but that trio (and the emerging Jarvis Landry) should be able to more than offset those losses. Tannehill has a good coordinator in Bill Lazor and host of weapons to utilize. He looks like a very safe pick in the 9th round.

Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill 'has played well' throughout OTAs

Sun-Sentinel - [Full Article]

Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill was as good as a $96 million player could be in Wednesday's minicamp practice. He threw seven touchdowns and no interceptions, made good decisions, threw accurate passes, showed good footwork and pocket presence.

Tannehill, who received a lucrative contract extension in the offseason, has played well throughout the offseason program, and Wednesday was one of his best practices. Tannehill, frequently criticized for his inability to throw deep, even connected with wide receiver Jarvis Landry on a beautifully thrown 45-yard touchdown pass. He later hooked up with veteran wide receiver Greg Jennings on a 75-yard catch-and-run touchdown.

"I feel really comfortable in this offense right now in the sense of knowing exactly where everyone is supposed to be," Tannehill said, "and being more of a coach on the field this year as opposed to trying to learn the whole system with everyone else like I did last year."

Dolphins WR DeVante Parker underwent foot surgery on Friday

Pro Football Talk - [Full Article]

Per a team source, DeVante Parker underwent foot surgery this morning. As is always the case when NFL players go under the knife, the surgery was a success. He’s expected to be ready to go for Week One in September.

It’s unclear how or when the injury occurred. Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports that the surgery was performed as a precaution, and that the injury wouldn’t have kept Parker from playing this week, if it had happened in the regular season.

It’s also unclear whether and to what extent Parker will participate in training camp and the preseason. He’s definitely done for the rest of the offseason program. While he’s expected to be ready for Week One, his readiness for the rest of the work that comes before Week One could influence how effective he’ll be as a rookie.

Fantasy Impact:

This is a big blow to Parker's fantasy stock even though he's "expected" to be ready Week 1. As a rookie, he needs the practice reps to learn the offense, build a rapport with Ryan Tannehill and beat out Kenny Stills and Greg Jennings. He could come back strong a la Odell Beckham, but holding him to that sort of standard is probably a bad idea.

Dolphins lock up QB Ryan Tannehill through 2020

Monday, May 18, 2015, 7:50pm

USA Today - [Full Article]

The Miami Dolphins announced Monday they've signed Ryan Tannehill through the 2020 season.

It’s a four-year, $77 million extension on top of the two years and $18.255 million Tannehill had remaining on his rookie deal, a person informed of the contract's details told USA TODAY Sports.

The deal includes $45 million in guarantees, said the person, who was not permitted to speak publicly since the team did not release financial details of the contract.

Fantasy Impact:

In his first three seasons, Tannehill finished #24, #16 and finally #9 in quarterback scoring. That’s a nice trend. The Dolphins spent the offseason trying to upgrade his weapons, and ended up with Jordan Cameron at tight end to go along with Kenny Stills, DeVante Parker and Greg Jennings at receiver. Sure, they traded away Mike Wallace, but that trio (and the emerging Jarvis Landry) should be able to offset that loss. If healthy, Cameron should also be an upgrade on the departed Charles Clay. Tannehill has a good coordinator in Bill Lazor and host of weapons to utilize. He looks like a very safe pick in the 9th round.

Dolphins will reportedly sign WR Greg Jennings

The Dolphins are signing veteran WR Greg Jennings, source confirms.

Fantasy Impact:

Jennings still has a bit of gas left in the tank, but isn't the player he once was with the Packers. He'll provide veteran leadership and depth behind Kenny Stills and Jarvis Landry.

Baltimore Sun - [Full Article]

It’s evident that the Ravens do have a lot of confidence in the development of young receivers like Marlon Brown, Michael Campanaro, Kamar Aiken and Jeremy Butler.

The Ravens still will likely draft a wide receiver pretty early and they still are monitoring the markets of veteran free agents like Greg Jennings and Michael Crabtree. But by now, it’s pretty clear that they want to give every opportunity for their own young receivers to step into bigger roles.

Fantasy Impact:

With the departure of Torrey Smith to San Francisco, and Steve L. Smith another year older, a few of the young WRs mentioned above look like they will get a chance at more snaps in 2015. Still, the Ravens remain a run-first team, so in terms of fantasy value, a lot remains to be seen concerning these guys heading into fantasy draft season.

Vikings release WR Greg Jennings

Vikings announced they have released WR Greg Jennings.

Fantasy Impact:

Jennings became expendable when the team traded for Mike Wallace. Jennings was the #42 WR in PPR formats, posting 59 catches for 742 yards and six touchdowns in his second season with the team. He'll turn 32 in September and still has some gas in the tank.

Dolphins trade WR Mike Wallace to the Vikings

Friday, March 13, 2015, 7:26pm

Adam Schefter, Twitter - [Full Article]

Vikings traded 5th-round pick to Miami for WR Mike Wallace and 7th-round pick, per league source.

Fantasy Impact:

Starting with the Dolphins, this news is good for Jarvis Landry and the newly acquired Kenny Stills and Jordan Cameron since Wallace's 7.2 targets per game are now up for grabs. In Minnesota, Wallace will likely start opposite Charles Johnson with Greg Jennings serving as the team's WR3. (Fantasy owners should not expect much from Cordarrelle Patterson in 2015.) We're wary any time a receiver changes teams, especially when he's not getting a promotion, which is the case here with Wallace. The acquisition is good news for Teddy Bridgewater, who averaged a solid 15.0 FP after his Week 10 bye. Those are QB2-type numbers, so with a year under his belt and Wallace in the mix, Bridgewater should be a good QBBC/streaming option in his second season.

Vikings WR Greg Jennings (hamstring, probable) took full practice reps on Friday after being limited earlier in the week and is probable for Week 17. Jennings has four touchdowns in his last five games, and has a nice matchup with Chicago (8.1 YPA allowed, 2.2 pass TD allowed).

Friday, December 19, 2014, 6:02pm

Vikings WR Greg Jennings (hamstring, probable) took full practice reps on Friday after being limited earlier in the week and is probable for Week 16. Jennings is a WR4/WR5 type against Miami.

Vikings WR Greg Jennings (hamstring) took limited practice reps again Thursday.

Wednesday, December 17, 2014, 5:57pm

Vikings WR Greg Jennings (hamstring) took limited practice reps Wednesday. Jennings should be fine to face Miami.

Vikings beat writer Ben Goessling answered a question about the Vikings WRs:

I wouldn't say Charles Johnson separated himself from the group. But the fact that this is even an open question tells you how little has gone according to plan for the Vikings' passing game. It's difficult to separate the performance of the Vikings' receivers from the play of a rookie quarterback and the poor job the Vikings' offensive line has done protecting Teddy Bridgewater, but when they invested $18 million guaranteed in Greg Jennings and gave up three picks to get Cordarrelle Patterson in 2013, they should be getting more than they are.

Jennings is a prime candidate for a contract restructuring after this season; he's scheduled to count $11 million against the cap in 2015, when he will turn 32, and has no guaranteed cash left in his deal. With 40 catches through 11 games, it's doubtful he'll play at that cap figure next year.

Fantasy Impact:

The story makes a great point about how Charles Johnson being the team's best receiver shouldn't be a topic, but the team hasn't got much of anything from Patterson - as fantasy owners know first hand. HC Mike Zimmer said last week it may even take a while for Patterson to get it. He's struggled with running patterns throughout his career. Either way, Viking WRs will make for risky fantasy plays.

Friday, November 28, 2014, 6:04pm
