Ryan Tannehill looks sharp in preseason opener

USA Today - [Full Article]

Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill started a make-or-break third season in perfect fashion.

Granted, it was only one 10-snap preseason-opening cameo against a retooled Atlanta Falcons defense Friday night. But the quarterback, who was pummeled for a league-high 58 sacks last season, looked comfortable and in sharp command of new offensive coordinator Bill Lazor’s up-tempo offense.

Tannehill hit all six of his passes for 62 yards to march the Dolphins 73 yards on a game-opening drive that culminated in his 6-yard scoring pass to wide-open slot receiver Brandon Gibson.

Fantasy Impact: 

Tannehill looked good in his new offense led by Lazor, who came over from Philly where he helped Nick Foles to an impressive year. He's a low-end QB2 ranked 20th on our list but could have some use in certain matchups. According to ADPs he's not getting drafted in a lot of 10-team leagues.
