Dolphins name QB Tannehill the starter

CBS Sports - [Full Article]

Ryan Tannehill is the Dolphins starting quarterback for Week 3 of the preseason and the regular season. Coach Joe Philbin announced the news on Monday at his press conference.

The news isn't a tremendous surprise, given that Tannehill received the start on Friday night against the Panthers, didn't totally mess himself and also managed to outperform Matt Moore in one fell swoop.

Fantasy Impact: 

Tannehill hasn't turned the ball over this preseason despite not having overwhelming stats either. As we talked about before, he doesn't have the best WRs to work with, but does have Reggie Bush at RB to help his cause. It's hard to imagine he'll be a consistent, usable fantasy QB this season in standard leagues, but can be targeted in keeper or dynasty leagues.
