Houston Texans head coach Bill O'Brien named QB Ryan Fitzpatrick as the team's starting quarterback Tuesday, June 17.
Fantasy Tip: Fitzpatrick should be considered a mid-range backup and a bye-week replacement at best. His value will take a hit if the Andre Johnson situation is not resolved.
Fri, 13 Jun 2014 12:00:04 -0700
The Houston Texans finished organized team activities Friday, June 13, without a starting quarterback. QBs Ryan Fitzpatrick, Case Keenum, T.J. Yates and rookie Tom Savage are competing for three roster spots. Fitzpatrick, who is expected to start Week 1, had a "decent offseason" and has done well picking up a new offense, according to head coach Bill O'Brien. Savage hasn't been ruled out for the No. 2 position.
Fantasy Tip: Whoever ends up being the starter in Houston won't be worthy of starter status on your fantasy team. He'll be a bye-week replacement at best.
Mon, 09 Jun 2014 11:05:25 -0700
The Houston Texans likely would release QB Case Keenum or QB T.J. Yates if they decide to take only three quarterbacks to training camp, because QBs Ryan Fitzpatrick and Tom Savage appear to be locks for the roster.
Thu, 05 Jun 2014 19:19:11 -0700
Updating a previous report, Houston Texans QBs Ryan Fitzpatrick, Case Keenum, T.J. Yates and Tom Savage are progressing at the same rate, head coach Bill O'Brien said Thursday, June 5, and the team's starter remains undetermined.
Tue, 27 May 2014 14:37:25 -0700
Houston Texans head coach Bill O'Brien is saying that right now, after the first day of organized team activities Tuesday, May 27, the quarterback competition is wide open between QBs Ryan Fitzpatrick, Case Keenum, T.J. Yates and Tom Savage. The team will look to make sure all of the quarterback repetitions are equal for all four quarterbacks, but they'll look to narrow the focus as the season approaches.
Fantasy Tip: Realistically, this job will come down to Fitzpatrick and Keenum, or whoever performs better this summer and in training camp. Neither QB would be more than a matchup play as a weak QB2, though.
Mon, 07 Apr 2014 11:48:20 -0700

Thu, 20 Mar 2014 17:10:55 -0700

The Houston Texans are signing free-agent QB Ryan Fitzpatrick (Titans) to an undisclosed two-year deal Thursday, March 20, according to a source.
Fantasy Tip: The move signals the end to Matt Schaub's run in Houston. He's expected to be released. It won't keep Houston from selecting a quarterback with the No. 1 overall pick in the draft, however. Fitzpatrick is a veteran QB that could mentor a rookie quarterback or Case Keenum, if they decide to go that route.
Thu, 20 Mar 2014 12:59:20 -0700
The Houston Texans will visit with free-agent QB Ryan Fitzpatrick (Titans) Thursday, March 20.

Sun, 23 Feb 2014 23:43:19 -0800
Although the Tennessee Titans front office supported QB Jake Locker, the team will likely bring in some competition for him in the offseason. Titans brass expect the top quarterbacks to be off the board by the 11th pick, but potential options to provide some younger competition for Locker that could be had after the first round include Derek Carr, Aaron Murray, Jimmy Garoppolo, and Zach Mettenberger. The Titans also have QB Ryan Fitzpatrick under contract and the team feels comfortable with him.
Sat, 07 Dec 2013 07:14:13 -0800
Tennessee Titans QB Ryan Fitzpatrick said he will not wear a glove in the team's Week 14 game. "I messed around with it a little bit and just didn't like it. I don't feel the need for me, but other guys like it," Fitzpatrick said. "Usually you have the hand warmer (around the waist) with the stuff in there that keeps it warmer or warm enough. Sometimes you end up making the huddle a little extra tighter just so everybody can get that body warmth in there."
Wed, 20 Nov 2013 10:08:43 -0800
Tennessee Titans QB John Skelton will serve as the team's No. 3 quarterback behind QBs Ryan Fitzpatrick and Rusty Smith. Skelton isn't expected to be active in Week 12 against the Oakland Raiders. "We thought we had a need just because of the way quarterbacks get hurt," head coach Mike Munchak said. "Rusty will go in if anything happens to Fitz, but this allows us to have somebody else here learning our offense in case we have another injury." The Titans would likely run a wildcat offense with RBs Chris Johnson and Shonn Greene taking snaps if both Fitzpatrick and Smith are injured.
Fri, 15 Nov 2013 22:51:47 -0800
Since relieving QB Jake Locker on Sunday, Nov. 10, during the Tennessee Titans' game against the Jacksonville Jaguars, QB Ryan Fitzpatrick is 44-of-61 passing (72.1 percent) for 486 yards with three touchdown passes.

Sun, 10 Nov 2013 15:05:31 -0800
Tennessee Titans QB Ryan Fitzpatrick is expected to take over as the team's starting signal caller for the remainder of the season, as sources believe QB Jake Locker (foot) suffered a season-ending foot injury in Week 10 against the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Fantasy Tip: Fitzpatrick isn't necessarily worth using in most fantasy leagues of 12 or fewer teams, but he is a solid addition in those formats which require two starting signal callers.
Fri, 18 Oct 2013 15:12:02 -0700
Tennessee Titans head coach Mike Munchak said the team hasn't decided on a starting quarterback in Week 7 against the San Francisco 49ers between QBs Jake Locker (hip, knee) and Ryan Fitzpatrick. "We haven't decided yet. We're not really leaning any way," Munchak said. "Jake is doing well. He did everything today we wanted him to do. Now, we'll spend some time with him and talk as an offense and decide what is the best thing to do for Sunday." General manager Ruston Webster said he's optimistic that Locker can play Sunday.
Fri, 18 Oct 2013 10:43:05 -0700
Tennessee Titans head coach Mike Munchak is not ruling out QB Jake Locker (knee, hip) for Week 7 against the San Francisco 49ers, but his chances still look unlikely with the team's bye week in Week 8. Locker increased his activities in practice Thursday, Oct. 17, but continued to wear a brace on his right knee and walk with a limp. "He can play. It is just a matter of … is he quite ready? There is no doubt the more you rest, the more you take off, the stronger your (knee) is going to feel. But it doesn't mean you can't play in the meantime," Munchak said. "He came out and looked better today. … We'll consider anything, really. We'll wait until tomorrow. It is kind of wait and see. We don't want to ever say he can't do anything." Teammates expect QB Ryan Fitzpatrick to make the start this weekend.
Fantasy Tip: We fully expect Locker to return in Week 9. It's foolish to expect him to start this weekend. Nate Washington, Kendall Wright and possibly Kenny Britt will see a bump in their value when Locker does return.
Wed, 16 Oct 2013 14:39:33 -0700
Tennessee Titans QB Jake Locker (hip, knee) isn't expected to play in Week 7 despite returning to limited practice Wednesday, Oct. 16. QB Ryan Fitzpatrick is expected to make his third straight start. Locker took part in some quarterback drills, seven-on-seven workouts and took a few snaps. Head coach Mike Munchak said Locker's knee injury is more serious than his hip at this time.
Fantasy Tip: Leave Locker to the waiver wire for now. He'll be in consideration to start in Week 9 after the team's bye in Week 8.
Mon, 07 Oct 2013 07:08:34 -0700
Tennessee Titans QB Ryan Fitzpatrick is 0-for-8 with an interception on passes of 15 yards or more. That is the most attempts of such without a completion in the league.
Wed, 02 Oct 2013 15:52:37 -0700
Tennessee Titans QB Rusty Smith will be promoted from the practice squad to serve as the backup to QB Ryan Fitzpatrick with QB Jake Locker (hip, knee) out. Locker doesn't have a timetable for when he'll return to action, and he was walking with a limp and a sleeve on his injured leg Wednesday, Oct. 2.
Mon, 30 Sep 2013 10:04:51 -0700
Tennessee Titans QB Jake Locker (hip) is likely heading to short-term Injured Reserve with a designation to return due to the hip injury suffered in the team's Week 4 game.
Fantasy Tip: Ryan Fitzpatrick will handle starting duties while Locker is out, and is worth a look as at least a bye week fill in as he should be able to manage the Titans offense moving forward.
Sun, 29 Sep 2013 14:52:12 -0700
Tennessee Titans QB Jake Locker (leg) left the game against the New York Jets in the third quarter due to an apparent leg injury. He was carted off after suffering some sort of a lower body injury. QB Ryan Fitzpatrick replaced him.

Mon, 25 Mar 2013 19:29:26 -0700
Tennessee Titans QB Ryan Fitzpatrick said he is embracing the backup role with the team. "I wanted to find a nice role for me to come in and more than likely help a young guy," Fitzpatrick said. "I thought that would be something that was important to look for and for me a great opportunity to come in. For me, (it's) a great opportunity to come in and help Jake. I don't know Jake at all, but I want to be there for him and be ready to play if anything happens."
Wed, 20 Mar 2013 06:35:26 -0700
Tennessee Titans head coach Mike Munchak said QB Jake Locker will enter 2013 as the starting quarterback, even after the addition of QB Ryan Fitzpatrick. Munchak wants Fitzpatrick to push Locker, but believes the competition will make Locker a better player. "I think (Fitzpatrick) understands his role," Muchak said. "It's Jake's team. It's Jake's time. Jake's going to be our guy. We made that decision last year after training camp. Ryan has been in this situation before … He's going to compete with (Locker) and I think he'll help him a lot throughout the week. It will be another great mentor for him. And we feel he can win if he has to play. That's how we felt with Matt Hasselbeck also."
Mon, 18 Mar 2013 20:48:50 -0700
The Tennessee Titans agreed to terms with free-agent QB Ryan Fitzpatrick (Bills) on a two-year contract Monday, March 18. Financial terms of the deal were undisclosed.
Fantasy Tip: Fitzpatrick will be wearing a ball cap and carrying a clipboard while Jake Locker starts, so avoid the former Buffalo signal caller. His fantasy appeal is negligible unless Locker suffers an injury.

Tue, 12 Mar 2013 13:22:00 -0700
Updating a previous report, the Buffalo Bills have released QB Ryan Fitzpatrick.
Fantasy Tip: Stay tuned to see if he ends up with a team in dire need of a starting QB - like the Arizona Cardinals or New York Jets. He won't be more than a QB2 if he does, though.
Tue, 12 Mar 2013 13:21:32 -0700

Mon, 04 Feb 2013 14:05:20 -0800

Tue, 22 Jan 2013 10:27:45 -0800
Buffalo Bills WR Stevie Johnson wants to see the team bring in another quarterback to give QB Ryan Fitzpatrick some serious competition for the starting job. "Because competition brings out the best in us," Johnson said. "If we went out and got another quarterback, who knows what'll happen? Fitz may still win, or the other guy my win. Let it happen like that." However, Johnson is still confident the team can win with Fitzpatrick at quarterback. Fitzpatrick was ranked 32nd out of 33 quarterbacks this year with a 27.5 completion percentage on passes that traveled at least 20 yards.
Wed, 26 Dec 2012 09:38:10 -0800

Buffalo Bills QB Ryan Fitzpatrick is unlikely to return to the team in 2013. Fitzpatrick has received $21 million of the six-year, $62 million contract he signed in October 2011, and it will not cost the Bills any more to cut him than to keep him on the team. Fitzpatrick is due a $3 million roster bonus in March. If he gets cut before that bonus is paid, then he will count $10 million against the team's salary cap in 2013. If Fitzpatrick is on the roster, his cap number for 2013 will be $10.45 million. Fitzpatrick's base salaries going forward are $4.25 million in 2013, $4.35 million in 2014, $7.2 million in 2015, $8.75 million in 2016 and $9.45 million in 2017.
Sat, 22 Dec 2012 10:48:50 -0800

Fri, 07 Dec 2012 09:54:35 -0800
Buffalo Bills general manager Buddy Nix backed off some of his earlier comments saying the team would focus on drafting a quarterback of the future, suggesting that QB Ryan Fitzpatrick wasn't their man. Nix said previously that the team would draft another quarterback in the first round of next year's draft. "That's not necessarily true. I mean, we're going to always stay with the integrity of the (draft) board. But we're going to try to find a quarterback. If one's there, and he's rated at the right spot, we're going to take him whenever that is."
Sun, 02 Dec 2012 14:07:22 -0800

Thu, 29 Nov 2012 11:22:21 -0800
Buffalo Bills head coach Chan Gailey said he believes QB Ryan Fitzpatrick is the future for the team at quarterback. "I think we've always said we're looking to develop a quarterback for the future, but I don't think it's the near future," said Gailey. "I think we're talking about Fitz being the guy for us, and as we continue to get better, I think he's going to be the guy. I see us being able to be very productive as an offense with Fitz at quarterback. I've always said that, and I believe that."
