Tannehill hasn’t missed a game in two professional seasons. The young gunslinger has plenty of heart and will be a safe bet to play in all 16 games in 2014.

Passing Yards – 4,086

Tannehill has increased his yardage in both seasons in the NFL. He seems primed to have a breakout fantasy campaign, and I think this is the season that he gets over that pesky 4,000-yard plateau.

Touchdowns – 27

Tannehill won’t be a threat to hit 40 touchdowns anytime soon, but the former Texas A&M product will easily throw 20-plus touchdowns in 2014 with a couple more on the ground.

Interceptions – 15

Tannehill had six games last season with multiple interceptions. He isn’t very accurate throwing the ball downfield and will tend to misjudge his targets. Look for him to have another season double-digit interceptions

Fumbles – 6

Tannehill has been rather careless with the ball, as the former wide receiver has already fumbled the ball 18 times in the past two seasons alone. He won’t change overnight, so expect the mobile quarterback to put a more couple balls on the ground this fall.
