Ryan Tannehill, QB, Tennessee Titans
Tannehill started slowly Sunday against the Houston Texans, but when it was all said and done he put up solid numbers (279 passing yards, three total touchdowns) on his way to accounting for multiple touchdowns for the eighth time in his eight starts. In Week 16, making in 9-for-9 accounting for multiple scores (and/or 8-for-9 with multiple passing touchdowns) feels like a lock.
The New Orleans Saints have yet to play Week 15, with a Monday night game coming against the Indianapolis Colts. But they entered the week allowing the 10th-most fantasy points to quarterbacks (Yahoo! scoring), as five straight quarterbacks have thrown multiple passing touchdowns against them. Next Sunday, Tannehill may get to 40 pass attempts for the first time this year as the Titans try to keep pace.
Fantasy owners have finally climbed aboard the Tannehill bandwagon in greater measure last week. But he’s still underowned, and if it matters in your league he’ll face the Texans again in Week 17.
