Jets | More action for Ryan Fitzpatrick

Fri, 21 Aug 2015 19:05:29 -0700

New York Jets QB Ryan Fitzpatrick played six series in a preseason game against the Atlanta Falcons Friday, Aug. 21, finishing 13 of 19 for 118 yards.

Fantasy Tip: Fitzpatrick wasn't terrible, but he averaged just 6.2 yards per attempt. He won't offer much upside, making him a low-end QB2.

Jets | NY starters to play almost one half

Wed, 19 Aug 2015 13:24:16 -0700

New York Jets QB Ryan Fitzpatrick and other starters will play close to one full half against the Atlanta Falcons Friday, Aug. 21, according to head coach Todd Bowles.

Fantasy Tip: One of the storylines will be how the defense responds to a less than impressive performance last week. It will also be interesting to see how Fitzpatrick divvies his throws, including to Brandon Marshall and Eric Decker.

Jets | Ryan Fitzpatrick has comfort with WRs

Sat, 15 Aug 2015 14:16:25 -0700

New York Jets QB Ryan Fitzpatrick said Saturday, Aug. 15, there is a long way to go, but there is already a decent comfort level with the wide receivers.

Fantasy Tip: Both Eric Decker and Brandon Marshall saw their fantasy value rise when Geno Smith was ruled out to begin the season. Neither will be anywhere near the top tiers of receivers, but they can both be had for a reasonable price.

Jets | Ryan Fitzpatrick efficient Thursday

Fri, 14 Aug 2015 09:19:58 -0700

New York Jets QB Ryan Fitzpatrick started the team's first preseason game against the Detroit Lions Thursday, Aug. 13, despite only one day of practice with the first-team offense. He went 2-for-3 for 16 yards and orchestrated a 10-play, 41-yard drive that ended in a field goal. Head coach Todd Bowles limited Fitzpatrick because he didn't have much time with the starters. "I thought he did well," Bowles said of Fitzpatrick. "He really commanded the offense. He's cool, calm and collected. There was nothing big to brag about, but he did his job." Fitzpatrick missed a good chunk of the offseason while recovering from a broken leg.

Fantasy Tip: Fitzpatrick could start for the Jets for at least the first month of the season. If he impresses in that time, Geno Smith (jaw) may not be able to win the starting gig back. Despite a limited ceiling offensively, Fitzpatrick is probably an upgrade over Smith in terms of game management and limiting turnovers. However, he shouldn't be drafted in traditional fantasy leagues.

Jets | NYJ sticking with current QB group

Wed, 12 Aug 2015 16:28:14 -0700

The New York Jets plan to stick with the three quarterbacks on their roster, but they could look to add a veteran later in the preseason. QBs Ryan Fitzpatrick, Bryce Petty and Jake Heaps will hold the fort with QB Geno Smith (jaw) out to start the season.

Fantasy Tip: Fitzpatrick will enter the season as the starter, and he'll have an opportunity to hold on to that title all season.

Jets | Ryan Fitzpatrick could start all year

Tue, 11 Aug 2015 13:27:26 -0700

New York Jets QB Ryan Fitzpatrick has already been named the starting quarterback to open the season, but if he plays well enough he could be the starter for the whole season, according to head coach Todd Bowles.

Fantasy Tip: If Fitzpatrick was backing up Geno Smith in the first place, then you know he's not exactly an elite quarterback. Only draft Fitzpatrick as a bye-week replacement.

Jets | Ryan Fitzpatrick to open season as starter

Tue, 11 Aug 2015 11:04:45 -0700

New York Jets QB Ryan Fitzpatrick will start the season as the team's starting quarterback after the injury to QB Geno Smith (jaw).

Fantasy Tip: Smith is expected to miss six to 10 weeks, so he could go on the short-term Reserve/Injured list and be forced to miss at least half the season. Fitzpatrick had some success with offensive coordinator Chan Gailey in Buffalo, so all is not lost. Fitzpatrick probably is an upgrade over Smith in terms of passing accuracy, but probably not enough to move Brandon Marshall or Eric Decker up your cheat sheets at all.

Jets | Saalim Hakim shines

Fri, 07 Aug 2015 18:28:55 -0700

New York Jets WR Saalim Hakim received extra reps in practice Friday, Aug. 7, after WR Chris Owusu (head) left with an injury. Hakim scored two touchdowns, catching a deep ball over CB Antonio Cromartie on a pass from QB Geno Smith and scoring in a red-zone drill on a pass from QB Ryan Fitzpatrick.

Jets | Geno Smith leading QB battle

Sun, 02 Aug 2015 16:05:23 -0700

New York Jets QB Geno Smith and QB Ryan Fitzpatrick have not thrown interceptions thus far in training camp, but Smith is still the leading candidate to open the year as the starter.

Fantasy Tip: Smith may have one or two big games, but even as the starter, he is a low-end QB2.

Jets | NY quarterbacks not impressing HC

Thu, 11 Jun 2015 15:24:46 -0700

New York Jets QBs Geno Smith, Ryan Fitzpatrick and Bryce Petty didn't thrill head coach Todd Bowles with their play during minicamp. "It's been up and down," Bowles said of Smith's performances. "He makes good throws, he makes some bad throws. There has to be more consistency for the quarterbacks overall."

Fantasy Tip: Smith's inconsistency at minicamp is indicative of how he's played throughout his career so far. He is still the favorite to start at quarterback for the Jets, but Fitzpatrick could give him a run for his money in training camp and beyond. Whoever starts will be a backup fantasy quarterback.
