With the Miami Dolphins' playoff hopes in the balance, quarterback Ryan Tannehill posted big numbers for his team and fantasy owners in Week 15 against the New England Patriots.   

Tannehill posted an impressive 312 passing yards and three touchdowns and hit 11 different receivers in the process. New England’s secondary appeared very vulnerable throughout the game, and Tannehill took advantage.

Fantasy owners should be encouraged by Tannehill’s performance against the Patriots, but a better-than-advertised Buffalo Bills secondary awaits in Week 16. The Bills are sixth in the entire NFL in opposing passing yards allowed (before Week 15), which will provide Tannehill and the Dolphins with a formidable challenge.
