Main Slate Strategy
Ryan Tannehill ($36) just keeps getting it done. Last Sunday against the Saints, Tannehill threw for 272 yards and three touchdowns, giving him nine consecutive games with multiple touchdowns. Second in the league in fantasy points per dropback (0.69), Tannehill also leads the NFL in adjusted yards per attempt (9.0), while ranking third among active quarterbacks in completed air yards per completion (7.3) and fourth in intended air yards per pass attempt (9.2). Tennessee heads into a win-and-win Week 17 situation this week against a very vulnerable Houston pass defense. The Texans are coughing up 2.1 passing touchdowns per game this season, tied for the third-most in football. They have remained a big-time pass funnel, as 75.6% of the touchdowns scored against Houston this year have come through the air, the third-highest mark in football. And over the last four weeks, the Texans are allowing 20.8 fantasy points per game to opposing quarterbacks, the seventh-most in the league. The Texans are also allowing opposing offenses to score touchdowns on a league-high 69.5% of red zone trips this season, while Tannehill is fifth in the NFL in red zone completion rate (69.4%). Tannehill had a great game against this team a few weeks ago and I expect similar production here in the finale.
