Jets | Brandon Marshall doesn't want Kaep

Wed, 03 Feb 2016 10:46:35 -0800

New York Jets WR Brandon Marshall said he doesn't want the team to acquire San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick and wants the team to re-sign impending free-agent QB Ryan Fitzpatrick. "I don't want Kaepernick," Marshall said on ESPN's "First Take." "I think he's good. My guy's Fitz," Marshall explained. "It's nothing against Kaepernick, but what I'm saying is that I have my quarterbacks and I'm good."

Fantasy Tip: Fitzpatrick had a breakthrough season and would be in the low-end QB1 range if he re-ups with the Jets.

Jets | Ryan Fitzpatrick talks coming soon?

Tue, 02 Feb 2016 16:45:29 -0800

New York Jets QB Ryan Fitzpatrick and the Jets are expected to discuss a contract extension in the coming weeks.

Fantasy Tip: The Jets want to bring Fitzpatrick back, but Colin Kaepernick has recently expressed an interest in joining the Jets, which could put a wrinkle in the Fitzpatrick discussions. New York may view Fitzpatrick as a less risky option, though, so keep your finger on the pulse of the Jets' quarterback situation.

Jets | New York wants to re-sign Ryan Fitzpatrick

Thu, 14 Jan 2016 09:58:52 -0800

New York Jets general manager Mike Maccagnan said he's "like very much" to re-sign QB Ryan Fitzpatrick this offseason.

Fantasy Tip: Fitz had the best season of his career with Gang Green, going 335-for-562 for 3,905 yards and 31 touchdowns (15 interceptions) as the Jets barely missed the playoffs. It makes total sense for the Jets to stick with him. Because of his comfort and rapport with both Brandon Marshall and Eric Decker, Fitz would be a strong fantasy backup in 2016 that can deliver QB1 numbers in the right matchups.

Jets | Ryan Fitzpatrick wants to stay

Tue, 05 Jan 2016 15:03:34 -0800

New York Jets impending free-agent QB Ryan Fitzpatrick wants to keep playing in New York, and the two sides have expressed a mutual interest in staying together.

Fantasy Tip: Fitzpatrick has earned the right to be re-signed by the Jets, but it could cost them a pretty penny to keep them there. The good news is that both Fitz and the Jets want Fitz to stay. There aren't many teams that have a better wide receiver corps than the Jets, though, which obviously gives Fitzpatrick more fantasy value. If he stays and starts in New York he should be considered a high-end QB2. The prospects may not be that high if he ends up somewhere else.

Jets | Ryan Fitzpatrick hopes to return

Mon, 04 Jan 2016 10:38:02 -0800

New York Jets impending free-agent QB Ryan Fitzpatrick said he hopes to re-sign with the Jets this offseason.

Fantasy Tip: Fitzpatrick should have a chance to be a starting quarterback next season no matter where he signs, but the Jets may be the best destination for his fantasy value. Fitzpatrick threw 31 touchdowns with the Jets this season and could be a solid backup quarterback in most leagues in 2016.

Jets | Ryan Fitzpatrick has inconsistent outing

Sun, 03 Jan 2016 14:29:17 -0800

New York Jets QB Ryan Fitzpatrick went 16-for-37 for 181 yards, two touchdowns and three interceptions against the Buffalo Bills in Week 17. Fitzpatrick threw 31 touchdown passes this season, which set a franchise record.

Fantasy Tip: Fitzpatrick finished the season with at least two touchdown passes in seven of his last nine games. Fitzpatrick appears to be the leading candidate for the starting job next season and could be low No. 1 or solid backup for owners next season.

Jets | Ryan Fitzpatrick has multiple injuries

Wed, 30 Dec 2015 14:31:03 -0800

New York Jets QB Ryan Fitzpatrick (thumb, elbow, back) is dealing with a variety of injuries, but "nothing serious," according to head coach Todd Bowles. Fitzpatrick has dealt with a surgically repaired thumb since the middle of the recent and had been practicing in full in recent weeks. His elbow and back injuries came from Week 16.

Fantasy Tip: Fitzpatrick ($7,500, 15.0% of cap) has played some of his best football of late trying to lead the Jets to the postseason. A matchup against one of his former teams, the Buffalo Bills, isn't a bad one for the Amish Rifle, who has excellent chemistry with Brandon Marshall and Eric Decker. With a postseason berth on the line, Fitz isn't a bad daily selection.

Jets | Three Jets limited Wednesday

Wed, 30 Dec 2015 12:45:19 -0800

New York Jets QB Ryan Fitzpatrick (thumb) and RBs Chris Ivory (knee) and Bilal Powell (ankle) were limited in practice Wednesday, Dec. 30. Head coach Todd Bowles said Fitzpatrick's injury is not serious.

Fantasy Tip: These guys will need to be tracked as the week goes on, but it doesn't sound like any of them are in serious doubt of missing the last game of the season. The Buffalo Bills have been mediocre defending both the pass and the run this year, so Fitzpatrick ($7,500, 15.0% of cap) and Ivory ($6,100, 12.2%) are still decent plays, while Powell ($4,900, 9.8%) has more value in PPR leagues like FantasyScore.

Jets | Ryan Fitzpatrick throws three TDs

Sun, 27 Dec 2015 14:16:40 -0800

New York Jets QB Ryan Fitzpatrick went 26-for-41 for 296 yards and three touchdowns against the New England Patriots in Week 16.

Fantasy Tip: Fitzpatrick has thrown 13 touchdowns and only one interception in his last five games and at least 260 yards in all of the games. The Jets will have something to play for in Week 17, so Fitzpatrick will be a solid starting option in fantasy leagues against the Buffalo Bills.

Jets | The big three are probable for the Jets

Fri, 25 Dec 2015 14:02:21 -0800

New York Jets QB Ryan Fitzpatrick (thumb) and WRs Eric Decker (knee) and Brandon Marshall (ankle) practiced in full Friday, Dec. 25, and are probable for the Week 16 game against the New England Patriots.

Fantasy Tip: Fitzpatrick ($7,400, 14.8% of cap) is a fringe starter in 12-team seasonal leagues, but you should be able to find better upside in his price range at FantasyScore. Decker ($7,100, 14.2%) and Marshall ($8,300, 16.6%) have both become must-start receivers in yearly formats, and while they're worth a look at FantasyScore this week, New England has only allowed 230.3 passing yards per game this season.

Jets | Three Jets practice in full

Thu, 24 Dec 2015 11:29:45 -0800

New York Jets QB Ryan Fitzpatrick (thumb) and WRs Eric Decker (knee) and Brandon Marshall (ankle) all practiced in full for the second straight day Thursday, Dec. 24.

Fantasy Tip: Fitz ($7,400, 14.8% of cap) has been steady for the Jets, but he's only thrown for 300 yards one time this year. However, he came close to that mark and threw two touchdowns last time he faced the Pats. He's not a bad sleeper target. Decker ($7,100, 14.2% of cap) and Marshall ($8,300, 16.6% of cap) have been two of the more consistent receivers, and they both should have acceptable games against New England, especially if the Jets are playing catchup.

Jets | Three Jets fully practice Wednesday

Wed, 23 Dec 2015 15:57:50 -0800

New York Jets WRs Eric Decker (knee) and Brandon Marshall (ankle) and QB Ryan Fitzpatrick (thumb) participated fully in practice Wednesday, Dec. 23.

Fantasy Tip: It's just another day on the injury report for these regulars, but none of them are in jeopardy of missing Week 16. Marshall ($8,300, 16.6% of cap) and Decker ($7,100, 14.2%) are better starts than Fitzpatrick ($7,400, 14.8%) this week as the New England Patriots are a top-five fantasy defense against quarterbacks this year. Marshall and Decker are in WR1 and WR2 territory, respectively, while Fitzpatrick should be viewed as a QB2.

Fri, 18 Dec 2015 09:19:59 -0800

New York Jets QB Ryan Fitzpatrick (thumb) practiced fully Friday, Dec. 18, and is probable for Week 15.

Fantasy Tip: Fitzpatrick ($7,300, 14.6% of cap) continues his breakout season with a top 10 placement on FantasyScore the last two weeks. He's a QB to consider after the elite tiers against the Dallas Cowboys.

Thu, 17 Dec 2015 13:23:42 -0800

New York Jets WR Eric Decker (knee), QB Ryan Fitzpatrick (thumb) and WR Brandon Marshall (ankle) participated fully in practice Thursday, Dec. 17.

Fantasy Tip: Marshall ($8,100, 16.2% of cap) and Decker ($6,900, 13.8%) have been two of the most consistent teammate wide receivers this season. The matchup with the Dallas Cowboys isn't the greatest, but they're still solid options on FantasyScore. Dallas has played tremendous defense against quarterbacks, though, so Fitzpatrick may not be a good play.

Jets | Gang Green loses sixth-round pick

Thu, 17 Dec 2015 08:16:45 -0800

New York Jets QB Ryan Fitzpatrick has played in 70% of the team's snaps this season, which forces the team to send a sixth-round draft pick to the Houston Texans to complete the trade for him, sources said.

Wed, 16 Dec 2015 14:59:59 -0800

New York Jets WR Eric Decker (knee), QB Ryan Fitzpatrick (thumb) and WR Brandon Marshall (ankle) all practiced in full Wednesday, Dec. 16.

Fantasy Tip: The Dallas Cowboys have held their own against receivers this year, but Decker ($6,900, 13.8% of cap) and Marshall ($8,100, 16.2% of cap) have been productive all year and should continue to produce for their owners. Fitzpatrick ($7,300, 14.6% of cap) should be serviceable, but the Jets will probably feature the ground attack often against Dallas.

Jets | Ryan Fitzpatrick would love to return

Tue, 15 Dec 2015 19:19:34 -0800

New York Jets QB Ryan Fitzpatrick, a free-agent at season's end, said Tuesday, Dec. 15, that he would be happy to return to the team in 2016, responding to overtures from head coach Todd Bowles and WR Brandon Marshall. "Yeah, I'd love to be back," Fitzpatrick said.

Fantasy Tip: Fitzpatrick ($7,300, 14.6% of cap) has posted 3,129 passing yards with 25 touchdowns and 11 interceptions this season. He has emerged as a surprising FantasyScore option, especially with nine touchdowns and no interceptions in the past three outings. He has two or more total touchdowns in five of the past six games.

Jets | Coach hopes Ryan Fitzpatrick re-signs

Mon, 14 Dec 2015 15:16:03 -0800

New York Jets head coach Todd Bowles said he hopes that QB Ryan Fitzpatrick re-signs with the team this offseason.

Fantasy Tip: Fitzpatrick has played very well as the starter this season and has thrown nine touchdown passes in his last three games. He will be facing the Dallas Cowboys this week and should be a solid starting option in some leagues.

Jets | Three Jets expected to play

Fri, 11 Dec 2015 11:29:28 -0800

New York Jets WR Eric Decker (knee), QB Ryan Fitzpatrick (thumb) and WR Brandon Marshall (ribs, ankle) all practiced in full the entire week and are probable again the Tennessee Titans in Week 14.

Fantasy Tip: The Titans have allowed the most PPR fantasy points (49.7) to receivers in the last three games, so both Decker ($6,800, 13.6% of cap) and Marshall ($7,700, 15.4% of cap) should be safe daily plays. Fitz ($7,300, 14.6% of cap) had his best game of the season last week and could follow that up with another strong effort. The Titans have been a top-10 matchup for quarterbacks all season.

Fantasy Tip: Fitzpatrick ($7,300, 14.6% of cap) has been a solid fantasy option at times this season and has thrown at least two touchdowns in four of his last five games. Fitzpatrick will have a favorable matchup in Week 14 and could be a solid starting option.

New York Jets WRs Eric Decker (knee) and Brandon Marshall (ribs, ankle) and QB Ryan Fitzpatrick (thumb) participated fully in practice Wednesday, Dec. 9.

Fantasy Tip: The Tennessee Titans have been pretty accommodating to opposing pass defenses, so Fitzpatrick ($7,300, 14.6% of cap), Marshall ($7,700, 15.4%) and Decker ($6,800, 13.6%) all remain good FantasyScore plays. They've been one of the most consistent offensive trios all year.

Fantasy Tip: Decker ($7,200, 14.4% of cap) and Fitz ($6,600, 13.2% of cap) are both acceptable plays on FantasyScore this weekend against a suspect New York Giants secondary. Fitzpatrick is a nice value pick, as the G-Men allow the second-most fantasy points (24.9) to quarterbacks per game.

Fantasy Tip: Decker ($7,200, 14.4% of cap) and Fitzpatrick ($6,600, 13.2%) should be good to go this weekend barring any setbacks. Fitzpatrick has a tremendous matchup with the New York Giants, and both Decker and Fitz have been fairly consistent when healthy this year. They're both worth rostering on FantasyScore this week.

New York Jets QB Ryan Fitzpatrick completed 22 of 37 passes for 277 yards and four touchdowns in a 38-20 win over the Miami Dolphins in Week 12.

Fantasy Tip: Fitzpatrick had his second-highest yardage total of the season, and he threw for more than two scores for the first time. Don't expect him to duplicate this type of production any time soon, and he remains a matchup-dependent play at FantasyScore.

New York Jets QB Ryan Fitzpatrick (thumb) and WRs Brandon Marshall (toe) and Eric Decker (knee) are listed as probable for Week 12 against the Miami Dolphins.

Fantasy Tip: The Dolphins are a very average fantasy defense against quarterbacks and wide receivers. Fitzpatrick ($6,100, 12.2% of cap), Marshall ($7,300, 14.6%) and Decker ($7,200, 14.4%) aren't the best plays at their respective positions this week, but they're still worth strong consideration on FantasyScore.

Wed, 25 Nov 2015 14:44:15 -0800

New York Jets WR Eric Decker (knee) and QB Ryan Fitzpatrick (thumb) were both full participants in practice Wednesday, Nov. 25.

Fantasy Tip: Decker ($7,200, 14.4% of cap) remains one of Fitz's favorite targets, and he has 11 targets in each of the last two games. Consider Decker one of the safer receiver plays on FantasyScore. Fitzpatrick ($6,100, 12.2% of cap) has been steady this year but nothing he does stands out. He has yet to throw for over 300 yards or two scores in a game, either. He's a mediocre daily QB selection.

Mon, 23 Nov 2015 12:43:30 -0800

New York Jets QB Ryan Fitzpatrick will remain the starter in Week 12 against the Miami Dolphins, according to head coach Todd Bowles.

Fantasy Tip: The Dolphins have been fairly accommodating to opposing quarterbacks this year, but Fitzpatrick has struggled of late. He really shouldn't be started until he gets back on track.

Jets | Ryan Fitzpatrick, Bilal Powell probable

Fri, 20 Nov 2015 13:40:33 -0800

New York Jets QB Ryan Fitzpatrick (thumb) and RB Bilal Powell (ankle) both practiced in full Friday, Nov. 20, and are probable for Week 11 against the Houston Texans.

Fantasy Tip: Fitzpatrick ($6,100, 12.2% of cap) had surgery on his non-throwing thumb last Friday, but it shouldn't really affect his passes at all. He's yet to go over 300 yards passing in a game this year, though, and is a weaker daily option. Powell ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) should have a third-down role but is unlikely to see enough snaps to be useful.

Jets | Ryan Fitzpatrick struggles deep

Thu, 19 Nov 2015 09:44:07 -0800

New York Jets QB Ryan Fitzpatrick (thumb) is 4-for-26 on passes traveling at least 25 yards in the air, which is the worst (15.4%) percentage in the NFL.

Fantasy Tip: In his defense, Eric Decker has been dogged by injuries all season, and Brandon Marshall isn't much of a deep threat. The Jets have struggled to find a consistent guy in the slot as well. Fitzpatrick ($6,100, 12.2% of cap) has a midrange matchup against the Houston Texans, but there are probably options with more upside on FantasyScore.

New York Jets QB Ryan Fitzpatrick (thumb) said he will start against the Houston Texans in Week 11.

Fantasy Tip: Fitzpatrick ($6,100, 12.2% of cap) looked good throwing passes in practice Wednesday. But how efficient will he be after having surgery last week? FantasyScore users surely won't want to pay, even at a reduced cost, to find out against Houston.

Wed, 18 Nov 2015 10:32:09 -0800

New York Jets QB Ryan Fitzpatrick (thumb) looks good throwing in practice Wednesday, Nov. 18, and it appears he'll start in Week 11.

Fantasy Tip: Fitzpatrick ($6,100, 12.2% of cap) faces a Houston Texans team that has tightened it up against the QB position over the past five weeks. They're a midrange matchup, and it's worth questioning if his upside isn't enough to start on FantasyScore without a better matchup.

Jets | Ryan Fitzpatrick doesn't practice

Mon, 16 Nov 2015 13:31:52 -0800

New York Jets QB Ryan Fitzpatrick (thumb) didn't practice Monday, Nov. 16, and stayed home three days after having surgery on his left thumb. Head coach Todd Bowles said he's "hopeful" that Fitzpatrick can practice Wednesday, Nov. 18, and "hopeful" he will play in Week 11 against the Houston Texans. Bowles isn't sure if Fitzpatrick will start yet, as he wants to see how he looks in practice taking snaps. There's a chance that Fitzpatrick doesn't practice until Friday, Nov. 20, and still starts this weekend.

Fantasy Tip: If Fitz doesn't practice at all this week, Geno Smith would get the start against Houston. Fitzpatrick had his worst game of the season last Thursday before having thumb surgery, and there's too much risk using him in daily formats just over a week after his surgery.

Jets | N.Y. hopeful on Ryan Fitzpatrick

Mon, 16 Nov 2015 10:58:13 -0800

The New York Jets and head coach Todd Bowles are "hopeful" that QB Ryan Fitzpatrick (thumb) will start against the Houston Texans in Week 11. Bowles said he needs to see Fitzpatrick practice this week before he confirms him for the start, though.

Fantasy Tip: Fitzpatrick had surgery to fix his thumb last Friday. The Texans are a top 10 matchup in terms of fantasy points for opposing quarterbacks, but it'd be a sizeable risk to run with Fitzpatrick in daily formats coming off surgery.

Jets | Ryan Fitzpatrick excelling in red zone

Thu, 12 Nov 2015 14:39:00 -0800

New York Jets QB Ryan Fitzpatrick has thrown 11 touchdowns to just one interception in the red zone this season. He's tied with Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota for the second-most touchdowns without an interception in the red zone.

Fantasy Tip: Fitzpatrick ($6,100, 12.2% of cap) has been a pleasant surprise since taking over as starter for QB Geno Smith. He has a tough test tonight, however, against a Buffalo Bills defense that only allows 230.25 yards and just over one touchdown per game. He's still worth a look on FantasyScore, but he may not do as well as previous weeks.

Fantasy Tip: Fitzpatrick ($6,100, 12.2% of cap) played well with 21.6 fantasy points last week, but he has one of the tougher matchups against the Buffalo Bills. He's not a FantasyScore option with a lot of upside.

New York Jets WRs Eric Decker (knee) and Brandon Marshall (ankle, toe), QB Ryan Fitzpatrick (thumb) and RB Chris Ivory (hamstring) participated fully in practice Tuesday, Nov. 10.

Fantasy Tip: The Jets should have the core of their offense for Thursday night's tilt with the Buffalo Bills. Decker ($7,100, 14.2%) and Marshall ($7,600, 15.2%) have the most favorable matchup of the four players as the Bills allow 171.25 receiving yards per game to wide receivers. Ivory ($7,400, 14.8%) may have a harder time than usual finding room to run against a Buffalo rush defense that yields just 81.25 rushing yards per game to running backs.

New York Jets QB Ryan Fitzpatrick (thumb) fully participated in practice Monday, Nov. 9.

Fantasy Tip: Fitzpatrick likely will be able to play against the Buffalo Bills in Week 10 even though he probably will need surgery after the game. Fitzpatrick has posted solid numbers over the last several weeks and has six touchdowns in his last four games. Fitzpatrick will be facing a tough Bills defense but could be a starting option for owners looking for a quarterback.

Jets | Ryan Fitzpatrick may have surgery Friday

Mon, 09 Nov 2015 15:38:32 -0800

New York Jets QB Ryan Fitzpatrick (thumb) is expected to have surgery on his injured thumb Friday, Nov. 13, since the team plays Thursday, Nov. 12.

Fantasy Tip: Fitzpatrick will play in the team's Week 10 game, but it is not known if he will miss any games if he does suffer the injury. He will be facing a solid Buffalo Bills defense in Week 10 and may not be the best fantasy option for owners.

Jets | Ryan Fitzpatrick could have surgery soon

Mon, 09 Nov 2015 14:24:54 -0800

New York Jets QB Ryan Fitzpatrick (thumb) could have surgery but "may not be out" for the following game against the Houston Texans, according to head coach Todd Bowles.

Fantasy Tip: Fitz went 21-for-34 for 272 yards and two touchdowns without an interception in his first game with an injured thumb in Week 9, so it's presumable that he won't be hindered all that much moving forward. However, surgery is a different beast and would further cloud his fantasy value. In Week 10 against a vulnerable Buffalo Bills secondary, Fitzpatrick isn't a terrible value pick at quarterback.

Jets | Ryan Fitzpatrick could have surgery

Mon, 09 Nov 2015 07:03:45 -0800

New York Jets QB Ryan Fitzpatrick (thumb) is considering surgery on his left thumb after the Week 10 game against the Buffalo Bills Thursday, Nov. 12. Fitzpatrick could play after the operation if the team immobilizes the thumb like they did in Week 9, according to Dr. Michael Hausman. Hausman said Fitzpatrick could run the risk of having the torn ligament shrivel and shrink if he waits until after the season for surgery, which would require a more-complex tendon graft to be done to re-attach it to the bone.

Fantasy Tip: Fitz is coming off of 272 passing yards and two scores against the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 9. He could be worth a low-end flyer against the Bills.

Jets | Two Jets QBs probable

Fri, 06 Nov 2015 11:53:19 -0800

New York Jets QB Ryan Fitzpatrick (thumb) and QB Geno Smith (shoulder) practiced Friday, Nov. 6, and are probable for Week 9.

Fantasy Tip: Fitzpatrick ($5,700, 11.4% of cap) will draw the start against the Jacksonville Jaguars, but there are options with more upside on FantasyScore.
