Tennessee Titans quarterback Ryan Tannehill hasn’t missed a beat this season, picking up where he left off last year after rejuvenating his career in Nashville. Through six games, he’s got a 112.3 QB rating, almost 1,600 yards, 15 touchdowns, and just two interceptions. He’s thrown at least three touchdowns in half of his games so far this season, and his Week 8 matchup against Cincinnati gives him a good chance to do it again.

Fantasy Football analysis: Titans QB Ryan Tannehill

After two games with seven touchdowns and 561 passing yards, Tannehill had a more subdued outing last week in a tough matchup against the Steelers. Still, he did at least manage to throw two scores and 260 yards without turning the ball over, so it wasn’t a complete bust by any means.

This week, Tannehill faces a Bengals defense that almost singlehandedly revived Baker Mayfield’s career last week. Cincinnati is giving up an average of 22 points to opposing quarterbacks.
