What to do with Ryan Tannehill in Week 3 fantasy football

Ryan Tannehill shouldn’t have a problem producing against the Vikings with A.J. Brown out for a second straight game.

Ryan Tannehill is still ridiculously efficient in 2020. The Tennessee Titans quarterback is off to a 2-0 start and is proving that his team is so much more than Derrick Henry. Can Tannehill continue to make plays against the Minnesota Vikings in Week 3? We think he has a good chance to.

Fantasy Football analysis: Titans QB Ryan Tannehill

A.J. Brown is still dealing with the knee injury that held him out for Week 2 and might miss a second straight game, but Tannehill hasn’t needed Brown to contribute much so far. Tannehill has only completed five passes to Brown for 39 yards. Adam Humphries, Jonnu Smith, and Corey Davis have combined for 29 receptions 352 receiving yards and five touchdowns. Tannehill can get things done with his leg and doesn’t need a star to be productive through the air. His odds of finding success against a Vikings team that was d picked apart by Philip Rivers in Week 2 are high. Tannehill has six touchdown passes with no interceptions and the fourth highest passer rating in the NFL.

Fantasy Start/Sit Recommendation

Starting Tannehill makes sense in season-long fantasy and DFS. The Vikings’ secondary hasn’t been able to recover from losing key names in free agency, and Tannehill hardly ever makes mistakes.
