RISER – Ryan Tannehill (QB, MIA)
Five weeks into the 2016 NFL season, the Miami Dolphins were 1-4 and it seemed like they were headed towards another lost season. Starting quarterback Ryan Tannehill had tossed six touchdowns and seven interceptions, further fueling doubt of his ability to be a starter in the NFL. Since then, however, Miami has won six games in a row, becoming the hottest team in the AFC. Tannehill has been at the forefront of this dramatic turnaround, tossing nine touchdowns and surrendering an interception just once during the winning streak.
His quarterback ratings have also dramatically improved, coming in at 130.6 in two of the past three weeks. With head coach Adam Gase seemingly beginning to impose his will on the team, Tannehill is thriving and playing, arguably, the best football of his career. With five games to go in the season, he’s become one of the hottest fantasy players in the league and should continue to gain traction as Miami pushes towards their first playoff berth in eight years.
