It wasn’t until Week 7, but Tannehill finally took the reins from an underperforming Marcus Mariota.
The results were surprisingly strong. Aided by 4 rushing scores, the former Dolphin ranked 10th among QBs in fantasy points per game the rest of the way. His 7.7% TD rate through the air was key, as this offense routinely flowed through Derrick Henry. Tannehill chucked 30+ passes only 3 times. He averaged 27 passes per outing.
The efficiency here was incredible. His 9.6 yards per attempt easily beat his previous career high of 7.7. He chalked up a 69.6% completion rate in his starts — an exceptional figure. In fact, his adjusted completion rate (76.8%) ranked 7th best among 35 starters with 200+ drop backs (per Pro Football Focus).
He was superb on play-action. With defenses threatened by Henry, Tannehill led the league in play-action completion rate (76.7%) and yards per attempt (13.5). 29.9% of his passes were off play-action, not far off from #1 finisher Lamar Jackson (34.8%).
While it’s an abnormal offseason, Tannehill gets the benefit of knowing he’s the guy for Tennessee this time around. The Titans signed him to a multi-year extension with $62 million guaranteed in March.
