Ryan Tannehill's job security in question

CBS Sports - [Full Article]

Miami will probably have to live with its uninspiring collection of running backs and tight ends for another year, and things could still get interesting with the quarterback position as well. Joe Philbin's job is riding on QB Ryan Tannehill progressing. I wouldn't doubt a little more pressure from highly paid back–up Matt Moore ($4M salary; $5.5M in cap) in 2014, with Philbin professing his belief in Moore to several of the GM candidates and demanding more from Tannehill.

"He definitely wants to push Tannehill more," said one source who has spoken to Philbin about the quarterbacks, "and if he doesn't see improvement he said he might go to Moore at some point. He definitely has a lot of faith in Moore, and they're paying him a lot of money."

Fantasy Impact: 

Tannehill will certainly enter the season as the starter, but if the team doesn't get off to a good start, he could potentially be replaced by Moore. Tannehill is a committee-type, but fantasy owners should keep this in mind as they head into 2014 fantasy drafts.
