Buccaneers | Ryan Fitzpatrick tosses three scores

Sun, 15 Oct 2017 19:29:41 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Ryan Fitzpatrick completed 22 of his 32 passes for 290 yards, three touchdowns and two interceptions after taking over for QB Jameis Winston (shoulder) in a 38-33 loss to the Arizona Cardinals in Week 6.

Fantasy Tip: Winston said he expects to return against the Buffalo Bills in Week 7, but if Fitzpatrick is forced to make a start, he showed he can at least play well enough to keep Tampa Bay's other fantasy options relevant.

Jets | Ryan Fitzpatrick's contract voided

Fri, 10 Feb 2017 20:08:30 -0800

New York Jets QB Ryan Fitzpatrick's contract voids Friday, Feb. 10, but he likely won't become an official free agent until March 9.

Fantasy Tip: After struggling throughout 2016, Fitzpatrick is unlikely to land a starting gig no matter where he plays in 2017. His surprise 2015 campaign was probably his last run as a viable fantasy option.

Jets | Ryan Fitzpatrick finishes on high note

Sun, 01 Jan 2017 21:42:02 -0800

New York Jets QB Ryan Fitzpatrick completed 20 of his 30 pass attempts for 210 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions in the Week 17 game against the Buffalo Bills in what is expected to be his final game with the team.

Fantasy Tip: Fitzpatrick had a QB rating over 100 just four times, and one of those games was in Week 17. He ended up throwing 12 TDs with 17 INTs in 2016, and is likely to be a backup if he latches on with another organization in 2017. As such, his fantasy value is at its nadir.

Sun, 01 Jan 2017 15:00:49 -0800

New York Jets QB Ryan Fitzpatrick went 20-for-30 for 210 yards and two touchdowns against the Buffalo Bills in Week 17.

Fantasy Tip: Fitzpatrick likely will not be able to find a starting job this offseason but should find a backup job with a team. Owners in all leagues can avoid Fitzpatrick as long as he is not starting.

Jets | Ryan Fitzpatrick not expected back

Wed, 28 Dec 2016 20:43:00 -0800

New York Jets QB Ryan Fitzpatrick indicated Wednesday, Dec. 28, that he doesn't expect to be back with the team in 2017. His contract voids after the Super Bowl, but he doesn't expect to return based on the way he has played.

Fantasy Tip: Fitzpatrick has passed for 2,500 yards and 10 touchdowns, but also 17 interceptions in 13 games. His 55.8 completion percentage is also a career low. It's uncertain where Fitzpatrick lands in 2017, if at all, but if he does find a job it will likely be in a backup capacity.

Jets | Ryan Fitzpatrick to draw Week 17 start

Tue, 27 Dec 2016 10:54:25 -0800

New York Jets QB Ryan Fitzpatrick has been named the starter for Week 17 against the Buffalo Bills.

Fantasy Tip: Despite having absolutely no reason to play a quarterback in Fitzpatrick that will not be on the roster in 2017, the Jets continue to show they have no confidence in rookie Christian Hackenberg by refusing to play him in a meaningless game. Fitzpatrick is not worth a start in fantasy this week and will be looking for work this spring.

Sat, 24 Dec 2016 12:59:30 -0800

New York Jets QB Ryan Fitzpatrick went 8-for-21 for 136 yards and two interceptions against the New England Patriots in Week 16. Fitzpatrick entered the game after QB Bryce Petty (shoulder) suffered a shoulder injury.

Fantasy Tip: Fitzpatrick has lost his starting job several times this season but has regained it each time because of injuries to other quarterbacks. He likely will start in Week 17 if Petty is unable to play and should be avoided in all leagues.

Sat, 24 Dec 2016 10:44:00 -0800

New York Jets QB Bryce Petty (shoulder) suffered a left shoulder injury in Week 16 and is considered questionable to return. QB Ryan Fitzpatrick replaced Petty in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Petty has suffered an injury in each of the last two games and probably will not be able to return in Week 16. Fitzpatrick likely would start in Week 17 if Petty's injury is serious, but owners should avoid all Jets quarterbacks.

Jets | Bryce Petty banged up

Sat, 17 Dec 2016 20:01:56 -0800

New York Jets QB Bryce Petty (back) was helped off the field against the Miami Dolphins Saturday, Dec. 17, after being sandwiched by two defenders. He is questionable to return and was replaced by QB Ryan Fitzpatrick.

Fantasy Tip: The Jets were in the process of being blown out when Petty went down, so there is a good chance he will spend the rest of the night on the sidelines. Prior to the injury, Petty didn't do anything to grab the attention of fantasy owners.

Jets | Ryan Fitzpatrick benched for the season

Mon, 05 Dec 2016 21:48:15 -0800

New York Jets QB Ryan Fitzpatrick was informed by head coach Todd Bowles Monday, Dec. 5, that QB Bryce Petty will be the starting quarterback for the final four games of the regular season. "I didn't get it done," Fitzpatrick said.

Fantasy Tip: Fitzpatrick was a train wreck in most of his starts, turning the ball over frequently. He can be safely dropped in all deeper fantasy leagues if you hadn't done so already.

Mon, 05 Dec 2016 19:18:26 -0800

Fantasy Tip: Fitzpatrick left with the score 31-3 in favor of the Colts. The fans cheered the move by head coach Todd Bowles, although at least check Fitzpatrick wasn't missing tackles and getting beaten in coverage on defense.

Fantasy Tip: Fitzpatrick is still the starting quarterback for now but could lose the job if he struggles against the Indianapolis Colts. He posted solid numbers in the team's Week 12 game but probably shouldbe avoided in most fantasy leagues.

New York Jets QB Ryan Fitzpatrick (knee) was a full participant in practice Thursday, Dec. 1.

Fantasy Tip: Fitzpatrick is coming off his first multi-touchdown game since Week 1, and he could be a sneaky starting option in DFS formats against the Colts in Week 13.

Jets | Ryan Fitzpatrick earns another start

Mon, 28 Nov 2016 13:27:27 -0800

New York Jets QB Ryan Fitzpatrick will remain the starting quarterback in Week 13, according to head coach Todd Bowles.

Fantasy Tip: Fitzpatrick did enough right to secure the starting position, at least for another week. Next week's matchup is a favorable one versus the Indianapolis Colts, but we have learned not to trust Fitz no matter the circumstances. He's proven himself to be too risky of a starting fantasy quarterback on a week-to-week basis.

Jets | Ryan Fitzpatrick solid in Week 12

Mon, 28 Nov 2016 05:32:11 -0800

Fantasy Tip: It was one of his better games of the season, but he'll be a QB2 option against the Indianapolis Colts next week.

New York Jets QB Ryan Fitzpatrick (knee) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Nov. 23.

Fantasy Tip: Fitzpatrick has been named the start for Week 12 and appears to be on track to play. He has thrown three touchdowns and two interceptions over the last three games but has thrown for more than 200 yards in only one of his last four games. Owners in all leagues should be able to find better options and can avoid Fitzpatrick.

Jets | Patriots bode poorly for Ryan Fitzpatrick

Tue, 22 Nov 2016 13:19:22 -0800

New York Jets QB Ryan Fitzpatrick has thrown 18 touchdowns and 17 interceptions in nine career games against the New England Patriots. He holds a 2-7 record in those nine contests.

Fantasy Tip: In case you haven't noticed, Fitzpatrick has not played well this season. He is tied for the league lead in interceptions (13) and has already been benched before being named starter again. Fitzpatrick should be avoided, while the Patriots make for a nice fantasy defense start.

Jets | Ryan Fitzpatrick named Week 12 starter

Mon, 21 Nov 2016 11:26:16 -0800

New York Jets QB Ryan Fitzpatrick will get the start in Week 12 against the New England Patriots, according to head coach Todd Bowles.

Fantasy Tip: The Jets are in a no-win position: roll with the turnover-plagued veteran in Fitzpatrick or turn to a pair of youngsters (Bryce Petty or Christian Hackenberg), both of whom have obviously shown the team very little in practice. Fitzpatrick's return gives owners of Brandon Marshall a bit of hope, but the former is a poor bet outside of two-quarterback leagues, even against the disappointing Patriots defense.

Jets | Fitzpatrick benching would cause revolt?

Fri, 18 Nov 2016 10:03:32 -0800

New York Jets QB Ryan Fitzpatrick is still so far ahead of Bryce Petty in the eyes of the players that head coach Todd Bowles is reportedly reluctant to make a change at the position for fear he would lose the team.

Fantasy Tip: Now we might have some kind of answer as to why the Jets haven't already turned the page at the quarterback position, but New York has much bigger problems on its hands if the coach feels his hands are tied behind his back in terms of moving players up or down the depth chart. If this report is true, expect Fitzpatrick to be named the starter after the team comes out of its Week 11 bye.

Jets | GM says coach has final say on QB

Wed, 16 Nov 2016 19:10:58 -0800

Updating a previous report, the New York Jets have not named QB Ryan Fitzpatrick or Bryce Petty as their starting quarterback for Week 11, and general manager Mike Maccagnan said Wednesday, Nov. 16, that head coach Todd Bowles will have "final say" on the identity of the starting quarterback for the rest of the season.

Fantasy Tip: Fitzpatrick has been a train wreck and turnover machine, and Petty and the Jets offense was listless in their 9-6 loss to the Rams in his first NFL start. Neither is worthy of any fantasy consideration outside of formats that use two starting signal callers.

Jets | Starter not named yet for Jets

Mon, 14 Nov 2016 12:54:43 -0800

New York Jets QBs Ryan Fitzpatrick and Bryce Petty will have to wait another week before knowing who will start. Head coach Todd Bowles said he won't name a starter until Monday, Nov. 21, since the Jets have a bye this week.

Fantasy Tip: Petty took over for Fitzpatrick yesterday, but he left something to be desired. Neither Fitzpatrick nor Petty is close to serious considerations for starting in fantasy lineups.

Jets | Starting quarterback unknown for Jets

Mon, 14 Nov 2016 06:32:38 -0800

New York Jets QB Bryce Petty or QB Ryan Fitzpatrick (knee) could be the starting quarterback in Week 11, according to head coach Todd Bowles.

Fantasy Tip: Petty was 19-for-32 for 163 yards, one touchdown and one interception in Week 10. Whomever is under center will have to face the New England Patriots coming off a loss, and neither is a good play in fantasy.

Jets | Ryan Fitzpatrick to serve as No. 2 quarterback

Sun, 13 Nov 2016 09:06:44 -0800

New York Jets QB Ryan Fitzpatrick (knee) is active for Week 10's game against the Los Angeles Rams as the backup to QB Bryce Petty.

Fantasy Tip: Fitzpatrick split first-team reps with Petty during practice throughout the week and was listed as questionable on the injury report. However, neither quarterback is worthy of consideration as a viable fantasy option.

Jets | Bryce Petty split reps this week

Fri, 11 Nov 2016 20:29:43 -0800

New York Jets QB Bryce Petty split first-team reps with QB Ryan Fitzpatrick (knee) during practice this week.

Fantasy Tip: Petty will start against the Rams in Week 10 if Fitzpatrick can't go, but he would be nothing more than a DFS dart throw.

Jets | Ryan Fitzpatrick is game-time decision

Fri, 11 Nov 2016 14:47:29 -0800

New York Jets QB Ryan Fitzpatrick (knee) was able to practice on a limited basis Friday, Nov. 11, and he is listed as questionable for the Week 10 game against the Los Angeles Rams. "He's getting better than he was," head coach Todd Bowles said. "I still have to see him work out Sunday to make that decision." If Fitzpatrick is unable to play, QB Bryce Petty would make his first NFL start.

Fantasy Tip: Fitzpatrick is a risky fantasy play, even if he is able to play, as he has been a turnover machine. The Rams rank ninth against the pass, allowing just 232.2 yards per game with four INTs and 15 sacks. Avoid Fitzpatrick unless you're absolutely desperate.

Thu, 10 Nov 2016 15:28:38 -0800

New York Jets QB Ryan Fitzpatrick (knee) put in a limited practice Thursday, Nov. 10.

Fantasy Tip: Death, taxes and Ryan Fitzpatrick turnovers. Fitzpatrick leads the NFL with 13 interceptions this year and faces a Rams defense that is better than average against the pass. Do not start Ryan Fitzpatrick.

Jets | Ryan Fitzpatrick back on the field

Thu, 10 Nov 2016 09:13:24 -0800

New York Jets QB Ryan Fitzpatrick (knee) is participating in practice Thursday, Nov. 10.

Fantasy Tip: Fitzpatrick appears to be on track to play in Week 10, but owners should continue to monitor the situation. He has posted some decent numbers since returning to the starting lineup but is still struggling with interceptions. Owners in most leagues should be able to find better options to use.

Jets | Ryan Fitzpatrick listed as limited

Wed, 09 Nov 2016 16:59:11 -0800

New York Jets QB Ryan Fitzpatrick (knee) was limited during practice Wednesday, Nov. 9.

Fantasy Tip: Fitzpatrick appears to have a good chance to play in Week 10, but owners should check on his status later in the week. He has thrown two touchdowns and two interceptions since regaining his starting job. Fitzpatrick will be facing a solid Los Angeles Rams defense this week and probably should be avoided in most weeks.

Jets | Ryan Fitzpatrick likely to get Week 10 nod

Tue, 08 Nov 2016 09:33:00 -0800

New York Jets QB Ryan Fitzpatrick (knee) is expected to play in Week 10 against the Los Angeles Rams despite spraining his left MCL in a Week 9 loss to the Miami Dolphins, according to a source. Bryce Petty will draw the start if Fitzpatrick cannot go.

Fantasy Tip: Not only are the Jets sticking with a quarterback that has done virtually nothing all season, but they are giving themselves less time to evaluate 2015 fourth-round pick. Perhaps New York will make the change at quarterback following its Week 11 bye. At any rate, Fitzpatrick at far less than 100 percent is a no-go in fantasy and makes the Rams defense/special teams unit one of the best plays for the upcoming week.

Jets | Ryan Fitzpatrick has MCL sprain

Mon, 07 Nov 2016 08:30:31 -0800

Updating previous reports, New York Jets QB Ryan Fitzpatrick (knee) suffered a sprained medial collateral ligament in his knee during the Week 9 game, according to a source. The injury isn't believed to be serious.

Fantasy Tip: Fitzpatrick wasn't a real good choice to use against the Los Angeles Rams in Week 10, and the injury, even if he plays, makes him borderline unusable.

New York Jets QB Ryan Fitzpatrick (knee) completed 17 of his 28 pass attempts for 193 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions. He also ran three times for 26 yards. Fitzpatrick suffered a knee injury and was replaced briefly by QB Bryce Petty.

Fantasy Tip: Fitzpatrick continues to make plenty of mistakes, and he has struggled with turnovers all season. He simply cannot be trusted in fantasy leagues right now.

Sun, 06 Nov 2016 12:58:55 -0800

New York Jets QB Ryan Fitzpatrick (knee) left the team's Week 9 game because of a knee injury but was able to return.

Fantasy Tip: Owners should see if there is any update on his status after the game but it appears like he will be fine. He has not been great since regaining his starting job and should be avoided in all leagues.

Jets | Ryan Fitzpatrick so-so in victory

Sun, 30 Oct 2016 19:04:43 -0700

New York Jets QB Ryan Fitzpatrick completed 16 of his 34 pass attempts for 228 yards, one touchdown and no interceptions in the Week 8 game against the Cleveland Browns. He also rushed four times for 13 yards.

Fantasy Tip: Fitzpatrick failed to take care of the football in his first stint as starter, and that's what cost him a job. He is back as starter and so far, so good not turning it over. Still, he is more of a QB2 in most fantasy formats going forward.

Jets | Ryan Fitzpatrick ready to break out?

Wed, 26 Oct 2016 21:19:14 -0700

New York Jets QB Ryan Fitzpatrick will face the Cleveland Browns in Week 8 with QB Geno Smith (knee) out for the season. Fitzpatrick gets a chance to shred a Browns pass defense allowing 285.7 yards per game through the air, ranking 29th in the NFL. They are also tied for the league lead with 18 pass touchdowns allowing with an AFC-high 29 pass plays of 20 or more yards.

Fantasy Tip: Fitzpatrick has been a turnover machine, but the Browns have managed just six interceptions in seven games. If ever there was a week to stream Fitzpatrick, Week 8 is the time. He is also a sensible DFS option if you want to save salary to spread across other positions.

Jets | Ryan Fitzpatrick solid in relief

Sun, 23 Oct 2016 15:02:50 -0700

New York Jets QB Ryan Fitzpatrick went 9-for-14 for 120 yards and one touchdown against the Baltimore Ravens in Week 7. Fitzpatrick entered the game when QB Geno Smith (knee) left with an injury.

Fantasy Tip: Fitzpatrick may have his starting job back if Smith is sidelined for an extended period of time. He should be considered a No. 2 quarterback at this point.

Jets | Ryan Fitzpatrick could start again

Wed, 19 Oct 2016 13:00:46 -0700

New York Jets QB Ryan Fitzpatrick could regain the starting quarterback job at some point this season, according to head coach Todd Bowles.

Fantasy Tip: Fitzpatrick will serve as the No. 2 quarterback in Week 7 but could win the starting job back if Geno Smith struggles. He should not be owned in any leagues as long as he is a backup quarterback.

Wed, 19 Oct 2016 08:29:38 -0700

New York Jets QB Ryan Fitzpatrick has lost the starting quarterback job Wednesday, Oct. 19, according to league sources.

Fantasy Tip: With the Jets' season likely in shambles, it's probably Geno Smith's job the rest of the way, barring injury. Fitzpatrick can be released in most formats.

Jets | Ryan Fitzpatrick on shaky ground?

Tue, 18 Oct 2016 23:20:44 -0700

New York Jets head coach Todd Bowles indicated during a press conference Tuesday, Oct. 18, that he has "revisited" his post-game comments that QB Ryan Fitzpatrick "is our starter," but did not say he was making a change. Bowles also mentioned it was "definitely possible" that QBs Bryce Petty and Christian Hackenberg could see action before season's end.

Fantasy Tip: Fitzpatrick has five TDs and 11 INTs this year, so fantasy owners weren't rushing to get him in their lineup to begin with. Still, this is the first internal acknowledgment that Bowles is considering making a move to (presumably) Geno Smith. Stay tuned.

Jets | Ryan Fitzpatrick to start in Week 7

Mon, 17 Oct 2016 21:27:28 -0700

Updating a previous report, New York Jets QB Ryan Fitzpatrick is expected to start in Week 7 against the Baltimore Ravens. "Fitz will be back next week," head coach Todd Bowles said Monday, Oct. 17. "The game was 28-3. There was eight minutes left in the game. We weren't doing anything else. I just wanted to get (QB Geno Smith) some reps."

Fantasy Tip: Fitzpatrick has been a disaster and turnover machine for the Jets. Even if he hangs onto his starting job for a while, at this point he is only worth a look in fantasy leagues which require two starting quarterbacks.

Jets | Ryan Fitzpatrick benched in 4Q

Mon, 17 Oct 2016 20:19:01 -0700

New York Jets QB Ryan Fitzpatrick was benched early in the fourth quarter of the Week 6 game against the Arizona Cardinals Monday, Oct. 17, with his team trailing 28-3. Fitzpatrick completed 16 of his 30 pass attempts for 174 yards, no touchdowns and one interception. QB Geno Smith replaced him.

Fantasy Tip: Fitzpatrick has been a turnover machine, and the Jets offense has been anemic in recent weeks with Fitz under center. Head coach Todd Bowles is looking for a spark, and if Smith gives them one it might signal the end of Fitzpatrick's fantasy usefulness even in the deepest of formats.
