The fantasy football waiver wire continues to build up as each week becomes increasingly important. Winning now obviously saves you from headaches later and that can only occur by making key roster adjustments as the year moves onward. Everyone has a few, if not more, star players which isn’t much of an advantage. It’s the deeper rosters where everyone scores consistently that develop consistency. With that in mind, let’s check out some key waiver wire adds for Week 3 Ryan Tannehill: QB, Dolphins (vs. Falcons) Whether you’re desperate for a quarterback or are in a two-QB league, Ryan Tannehill is a better option than at first glance. Despite just two touchdown passes on the season, Tannehill has completed 65.3 percent of his attempts and has thrown for 591 yards. The Dolphins logged an impressive road win over the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday, and Tannehill spread the field to six different targets. Taking on the Atlanta Falcons this week, it’s definitely an upgraded test from Wee...

The 2012 NFL Draft class of quarterbacks has already been drawing comparisons to the 1983 class that produced future Hall of Famers John Elway, Jim Kelly and, of course, Dan Marino. The comparisons came with good reason a year ago as Andrew Luck guided the Indianapolis Colts to an 11-win season after just a 2-14 finish the year before. Robert Griffin III delivered the Washington...
It might go down as the day Ryan Tannehill really emerged.
Tannehill, who has been in the shadow of Andrew Luck and several other fellow quarterbacks from the 2012 draft class, outpointed Luck on Sunday. The result was a 24-20 Miami Dolphins win at Indianapolis that raised their record to 2-0.
It's an impressive start for the Dolphins. It marks the first time they've began...
Two great passers, two good defenses. While the Colts defense is not in the same league as the Dolphins just yet, it proved it could be pretty tough.And while Ryan Tannehill is not quite in Andrew Luck's league yet, he outplayed the Pro Bowl passer on the road. In the end, a very evenly matched game between Miami and Indianapolis saw the Dolphins win 24-20 at Lucas Oil Field...
INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -- Ryan Tannehill threw for 319 yards and one touchdown Sunday, and the Dolphins defense held off yet another Colts' comeback bid for a 24-20 victory.
Charles Clay gave Miami the lead for good with a 1-yard touchdown run late in the third quarter. The Dolphins are 2-0 for only the second time since 2004.

The Miami Dolphins left Indianapolis with a 24-20 victory over the Colts on Sunday and improved to 2-0 in the process for the first time since 2010.
Ryan Tannehill ultimately outdueld draft-mate Andrew Luck and held off the Colts late attempt for a comeback win. Tannehill completed 23-of-34 passes for 319 yards, one touchdown and no interceptions which was good for a 107.4 passer...
With help from his defense, Ryan Tannehill found a way to get the better of Andrew Luck.
Tannehill threw for 319 yards and one touchdown and Charles Clay scored on a 1-yard TD run late in the third quarter, leading Miami past Indianapolis 24-20 on Sunday.
It was a rare fourth-quarter failure for Luck and the Colts (1-1). Indy was 10-1 under Luck in games decided by seven points...
Since Tom Brady arrived in New England over ten years ago, the AFC East has been largely dominated by the Patriots with a few exceptions. In 2005 the Dolphins won the division behind Chad Pennington, Tony Sparano, and the new "Wildcat" formation after Tom Brady was out for the year with injury.However, the Patriots have held a stranglehold on the division ever since. So...
The Miami Dolphins took a nice step forward last week with their second straight road victory. The Dolphins kept pace with the Patriots in what has been an interesting AFC East over the first 2 weeks. There are no teams under .500 at this point in the season. The AFC West and NFC West are the only other divisions in which this is the case. By contrast, the AFC North and NFC...
State of the AFC East--cover32: Latest post on cover32:
Over the past few years, we have seen the AFC East as one of the “weaker” divisions in the NFL. The New England Patriots have dominated the Miami Dolphins, New York Jets and Buffalo Bills in the Bill Belichick-era — but 2013 looks to be a bit different.
2013 looks to be a more balanced year for the AFC East.
Week two offers some obvious must-see football–the battle of the brothers Manning, the brewing rivalry of Seattle versus San Francisco, and if Chip Kelly can turn his offense up to 11. However there are some other interesting storylines flying below the radar.

The Miami Dolphins were able to stop Andrew "Captain Comeback" Luck late and hold on to a 24-20 victory over the Colts.
Tannehill went 23-for-34 with 319 passing yards and a touchdown. His 107.4 passer rating was significantly better than Luck's 79.7 thanks to an interception by Brent Grimes in the fourth quarter.
