Since making his first start for the Tennessee Titans in Week 7, Ryan Tannehill has averaged 22.0 fantasy points per game. This places him only behind Lamar Jackson and Deshaun Watson in average points per start for quarterbacks on the season. He has managed to make a star out of rookie wide receiver A.J. Brown and has kept the Titans in the playoff hunt with a very good chance at winning the AFC South. Can he continue to come up big in a key divisional match-up with the Houston Texans in Week 15? We break down the fantasy implications below.
Fantasy football analysis: Titans QB Ryan Tannehill
With a spot in the playoffs at stake, Ryan Tannehill looks to lead the Titans to victory over the Houston Texans and their 27th ranked pass defense in Week 15.
The Texans are allowing an average of 265.8 yards passing per game and a 65.4% completion percentage. Tannehill ranks 5th in the NFL with a 73.4% completion percentage on the season, and has completed over 77% of his passes in the last 3 games. He also threw seven touchdowns and only one interception over that three game span.
The Texans have not produced an impressive pass rush this year, as they have only 26 sacks on the season, so Tannehill should have a decent amount of time in the pocket to survey his options. Tannehill has a solid group of receivers and their chemistry seems to improve each week. He will look to build on his recent string of great performances against a susceptible Texans secondary, who just allowed rookie QB Drew Lock to complete 22 of 27 passes for 309 yards and 3 touchdowns.
