News: 6 days agoTannehill completed 14-of-22 pass attempts for 197 yards and one touchdown against Jacksonville on Sunday, adding three carries for 21 yards.
Spin: Tannehill managed to draw heavy pressure despite the light workload, absorbing three sacks and eight hits from the Jacksonville pass rush, but he was at least efficient with his pass attempts. The Titans were in control for the vast majority of the 37-19 victory, and Tannehill did his part to keep them moving by completing 63.6 percent of his passes at 9.0 yards per attempt. Julio Jones (hamstring) was out and A.J. Brown (three catches for 38 yards on six targets) was mostly ineffective while returning from his own hamstring injury, so Tannehill didn't necessarily have the easiest working conditions. Tennessee will likely need to throw more against the Bills in Week 6, so hopefully the two star wideouts can shake off the rust by then.
ESPN Fantasy Projection: Tannehill took over as the Titans' starting QB in Week 7 of the 2019 season. He was fantasy's No. 3 QB from that point forward and followed that up by finishing seventh as the full-time starter in 2020. He's been nothing short of elite during the two campaigns, totaling 66 TDs and 13 INTs while completing 67% of his passes and averaging a league-best 8.6 YPA. The addition of Julio Jones helps offset the departures of Corey Davis, Jonnu Smith and Adam Humphries, but losing OC Arthur Smith is notable as well. This still figures to be a very run-heavy offense (Tannehill finished 18th in pass attempts last season), which limits the ceiling a bit. Even at 33 years old, Tannehill still adds value with his legs, which along with his strong efficiency, keeps him in the QB1 conversation.
