Ryan Tannehill, QB, Tennessee Titans
Tannehill has been excellent since taking over for Marcus Mariota, accounting for multiple touchdowns in all seven of his starts (multiple passing touchdowns six times) with over 18 fantasy points six times in that span. He’s got a great chance to continue his nice run in Week 15.
The Houston Texans entered Week 14 allowing the sixth-most fantasy points to quarterbacks (Yahoo! scoring), and Broncos rookie signal caller Drew Lock topped 300 yards with three touchdown passes against them on Sunday. Tannehill has yet to face the Texans this year, and he’ll do so in Week 17 as well.
Week 16 brings another favorable matchup. The New Orleans Saints entered Week 14 allowing the 10th-most fantasy points to quarterbacks (Yahoo! scoring), and that standing won’t change after they allowed over 300 yards and four touchdowns to Jimmy Garoppolo on Sunday.
Tannehill has been a difference maker for the last several weeks. Right through the fantasy playoffs (even Week 17, if it matters to you) he’ll continue to be as a weekly starter in two-quarterback leagues, and a viable streamer in one-quarterback formats as long as his ownership rates qualify him.
