Ryan Tannehill had one of his rougher outings of the season last week against the Green Bay Packers. The Tennessee Titans quarterback was picked off twice, just his sixth and seventh interceptions of the season, and threw for just 121 yards with a completion rate barely above 45 percent. But he still had a decent fantasy outing thanks to one touchdown pass along with 55 rushing yards and a touchdown on the ground. This week, with his team looking to buoy their playoff standing with a win over the Texans, Tannehill is a solid option for fantasy lineups.

Fantasy Football analysis: Titans QB Ryan Tannehill

Tannehill’s outing last week snapped a three-game streak with multiple touchdown passes. In fact, the week before that one, he had five touchdowns, including two rushing scores, against the Lions. The last time he played the Texans, back in Week 6, he threw for 366 yards and four touchdowns.

Houston’s defense has given up multiple touchdown passes to opposing quarterbacks in each of their last four games, including such illustrious names like Mitchell Trubisky and Brandon Allen. It’s safe to say, that Tannehill could post another big day in this one.
