Lazor: Miami offense will go 'as fast as Ryan Tannehill can go'

Palm Beach Post - [Full Article]

OC Bill Lazor, who took over play-calling duties last year and elevated Miami’s offense to 11th in the NFL at 24.3 points per game.

He oversaw a faster offense that made space for playmakers and took advantage of mismatches.

But he could do only so much with the personnel he inherited. This season, the Dolphins have brought in bigger red-zone threats in 6-foot-5 tight end Jordan Cameron and 6-3 rookie receiver DeVante Parker, who is recovering from foot surgery.

They traded for receiver Kenny Stills, who replaces Mike Wallace as the team’s deep threat but is a stronger route runner. They also signed veteran Greg Jennings, a former Pro Bowl receiver.

It’s a lot of new faces for Lazor, but he said it all starts with his quarterback and center, who already have a year of experience in the offense.

“We’re gonna go as fast as Ryan Tannehill and Mike Pouncey can go,” Lazor said. “The other guys got to keep up.”

Fantasy Impact:

Expectations are high for the Miami offense but a lot will depend on the offensive line too the story said. Like the Eagles, the team wants to move fast at times and the hope for them is Tannehill now has the weapons around him. Tannehill comes in 10th on our QB list this year so fantasy expectations are high too. He's among a tier of QBs owners who wait on the position will be thinking about when it comes to the mid-to-late rounds. His ADP is the ninth for 12 team leagues.
