Tannehill: HC Dan Campbell's attitude and energy are 'contagious'

“It’s tough when you lose a coach you’ve been with your entire career,” quarterback Ryan Tannehill told USA TODAY Sports. “But you have to play the hand you’re dealt. This locker room has bought in and everyone is on board.

“We love (Dan Campbell). We love the attitude and the energy that he brings. It’s contagious. You can already feel it in practice, just the energy and enthusiasm and competition. I can’t help but think that’s going to translate on Sundays.”

Fantasy Impact:

We'll see if the coaching shake up results in better play on the field. Lamar Miller owners are hoping that the team will emphasize the running game, but the same guy (OC Bill Lazor) is calling the plays.

Acquired via trade in the offseason from the Saints, the Dolphins have high hopes for receiver Kenny Stills. However, those hopes have yet to translate into significant playing time or stats.

Via David Neal of the Miami Herald, Stills has participated in less than half of the snaps through two games, with only three catches for 20 yards.

“That’s just kind of the coaches’ decision,” Stills told Neal. “He’s got the guys in he wants in to play. It’s above my pay grade to worry about those things. I’ve been preparing myself to play. I’m healthy and I feel great. That’s the way the coach is game planning. So we just go with that.”

Part of the problem could be the time needed to establish chemistry with his new quarterback, Ryan Tannehill.

Fantasy Impact:

As Neal notes, it took time for Stills to emerge last season; he had three catches for 25 yards though two games in 2014. As the year progressed, Stills did more. He did a lot more after then-rookie Brandin Cooks was lost for the rest of the year.

Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill (ankle, probable) was limited Friday after taking full reps earlier in the week and is probable for Week 3. Tannehill is good to go for a so-so matchup against the Bills.

Thursday, September 24, 2015, 6:16pm

Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill (ankle) took full practice reps again Thursday. It looks like Tannehill is on track to play against the Bills. The Dolphins have gone pass-heavy in the first two weeks and are likely to do so again in Week 3.

Starting tight end Jordan Cameron was the forgotten man in the Miami Dolphins' offense during the preseason. He had just one catch for six yards in three preseason games.

There were concerns if Cameron, who signed a two-year contract in free agency, was the right fit for Miami’s offense and quarterback Ryan Tannehill. In addition to the preseason, Tannehill and Cameron were not making a lot of connections during training camp, either.

However, those concerns were erased in the Dolphins’ 17-10 win over the Washington Redskins in the regular-season opener. When the game mattered, Cameron performed with four catches for a team-high 73 yards.

“It felt good. Everyone was talking about that in the preseason, about not getting the touches or whatever,” Cameron said. “But that’s how it goes sometimes. Some days you get the targets. Some days you don’t. I’ve just got to capitalize when they come my way.”

Fantasy Impact:

Cameron was one of the few consistent bright spots for Miami’s offense against Washington. His role will be even more important moving forward considering backup tight end Dion Sims suffered a concussion and could miss time. Cameron showed some of the form Sunday that made him a Pro Bowler as a member of the Cleveland Browns two seasons ago. He averaged 18.3 yards per reception and was able to stretch the field and get behind Washington’s linebackers. The story added that Cameron and Tannehill spent extra time after practice to make sure they were on the same page and it looks like it's paying off.

Miami Dolphins tight end Dion Sims suffered a concussion in the second-quarter of Sunday's game against the Washington Redskins.

Sims, a part-time starter for the Dolphins, suffered the injury stretching out his body attempting to bring in a Ryan Tannehill pass inside the end zone.

Sims laid on the field motionless for a couple of minutes before eventually getting to his feet and walking to a nearby cart. Sims was carted off the field.

Fantasy Impact:

Losing Sims could complicate things for offensive coordinator Bill Lazor because Sims is Miami's best blocking tight end, and the Dolphins' base package is the two tight end set.

Dolphins Beat: Jarvis Landry could double his touchdown total

Friday, August 28, 2015, 2:35pm

ESPN - [Full Article]

Dolphins beat writer James Walker: I expect second-year receiver Jarvis Landry to do a lot of damage in the red zone. He had only five touchdowns in 2014, but I wouldn't be surprised if that number doubles this season. Landry runs precise routes, has the best hands on the team and the trust of quarterback Ryan Tannehill. With so many new receivers, I expect Tannehill to stick to what's most familiar (Landry) on “money” plays such as third down and in the red zone, especially early in the season.

Fantasy Impact:

Landry was the #42 WR in standard formats and #30 in PPR, so unless his touchdown rate increases, he's going to have more value in PPR formats. The Dolphins lost four of their top six most-targeted players: Mike Wallace, Charles Clay, Brian Hartline and Brandon Gibson. They have been replaced by Kenny Stills, Greg Jennings, DeVante Parker and Jordan Cameron, but Landry's role should expand as well. He only played 62% of the snaps on the season, and didn't start playing consistent starter's snaps until Week 9. Over the final nine weeks, Landry was the #15 WR in PPR formats (and #23 in standard). He is currently the 22nd WR off the board in PPR drafts.

Dolphins Beat: Jarvis Landry 'clearly' the go-to receiver

Wednesday, August 19, 2015, 3:23pm

Miami Herald - [Full Article]

Dolphins WR Jarvis Landry caught 84 passes to lead the team in receptions as a rookie in 2014. He is clearly quarterback Ryan Tannehill’s go-to receiver, so there are questions whether he might eclipse the team record of 90 catches in one season.

Except Landry doesn’t seem to care about any team record except the wins and losses.

“Honestly, the focus right now is on winning,” he said. “Things like [the catch record] come. But It’s about this team. It’s about overcoming I wouldn’t say a couple of bad years but it’s about overcoming what the Dolphins standards are and redefining them.”

Fantasy Impact:

Landry was the #42 WR in standard formats and #30 in PPR, so as a high-volume slot receiver, he's going to have more value in PPR formats. The Dolphins lost four of their top six most-targeted players: Mike Wallace, Charles Clay, Brian Hartline and Brandon Gibson. They have been replaced by Kenny Stills, Greg Jennings, DeVante Parker and Jordan Cameron, but Landry's role should still expand. He only played 62% of the snaps on the season, and didn't start playing consistent starter's snaps until Week 9. Over the final nine weeks, Landry was the #15 WR in PPR formats (and #23 in standard). He is currently the 24th WR off the board in early PPR drafts.

Ryan Tannehill hopes to improve on deep throws

Tuesday, August 11, 2015, 6:49pm

Fox Sports - [Full Article]

QB Ryan Tannehill stood in the Miami Dolphins' practice bubble Tuesday lobbing a succession of 35-yard passes, hitting each receiver in stride and making it look easy.

It's not.

A controlled-climate atmosphere with no pass rush, no secondary and receivers running at half speed isn't quite the same as going deep in New England in December. So we won't know for a while whether Tannehill has improved his accuracy on long passes, a glaring weakness in his first three NFL seasons.

But two weeks into training camp, Tannehill senses progress.

"Not only am I better at it, but our receivers are doing a great job of adjusting to the football and making plays on it when it's in the air," he said. "I'm excited about that and the potential that we have. It's something that's going to be a factor for us."

To support his contention, Tannehill's success rate on deep throws in practice has been higher than in past years. He caused a stir Sunday with three long completions during team drills.
A breakthrough? Nah, veteran receiver Greg Jennings said.

"You can't put so much into it," Jennings said. "I'd love to say we're going to complete deep balls this year at a high percentage. But none of this now means anything if we can't translate it into games."

Fantasy Impact:

While Tannehill has steadily improved overall since he became a starter as a rookie in 2012, his grade on throwing long remains incomplete. Last year he connected on 24 percent of his passes thrown more than 20 yards (10 for 41), which was even worse than his career figure of 27 percent. Aaron Rodgers, by comparison, hit 51 percent last year (20 for 39). In 2014, Tannehill threw one touchdown pass that traveled more than 20 yards in the air. Andrew Luck threw 11 and Rodgers nine. Peyton Manning, Joe Flacco, Ben Roethlisberger and Tony Romo threw eight each, the story said. A revamped group of WRs should also help Tannehill improve, which will make fantasy owners happy.
