Tennessee Titans quarterback Ryan Tannehill has a tough matchup on Sunday despite putting together a solid season thus far. What should fantasy owners be doing with Tannehill in Week 9? Let’s take a closer look.

Fantasy Football analysis: Titans QB Ryan Tannehill

In his last time out, Tannehill completed 18 of 30 passes for 223 yards with a touchdown and an interception in a 31-20 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals. It was certainly one of Tannehill’s worst games of the season so far, so better days are likely ahead for him and the Titans’ offense. That just might have to come next week, however.

Tannehill and Tennessee are set to take on the Chicago Bears on Sunday. Chicago is coming off a 26-23 overtime loss to the New Orleans Saints, and it allowed 280 yards and two touchdowns for Drew Brees on 31 of 41 passing.

It’s worth noting that the Titans will be without wide receiver Adam Humphries on Sunday, as he has been ruled out with a concussion.

Fantasy Start/Sit Recommendation

Tannehill is a mid-tier second quarterback for fantasy purposes in his Week 9 matchup against the Bears.
