Trust = spike production for that player


Ryan Tannehill: Tannehill is quietly off to a really solid start this season. He currently ranks 11th in EPA per dropback, 11th in completion rate (66.3%), fifth in yards per pass attempt (7.8 Y/A), and 11th in passing points per attempt (.449). 

This is with a limited receiving corps that relied on Derrick Henry to lead the team in targets last week.

Of course, the Titans still have no desire to actually throw the football. Tennessee currently is -4% below pass rate expectation overall on the season while having a -14% rate below expectation on first downs. 

After Tannehill was 12-of-15 for 103 yards and two touchdowns in the first half last weekend, Tennessee turtled and threw six passes in the second half. 

That is the worry with Tannehill as a streamer in 1QB formats, but he runs into a stellar matchup here against a Washington defense allowing 7.9 yards per pass attempt (28th), 13.5 yards per completion (31st), and a league-high 7.3% touchdown rate to opposing passers.

I would not blink if Tannehill ended up as a QB1 this week, but he serves lineups more optimally as a matchup-based QB2.
