Jets QB Bryce Petty has been diagnosed with a torn labrum in his left (non-throwing) shoulder and placed on IR. He finishes the season with a 56.4% completion rate, 6.1 yards per attempt and 3 TDs vs. 7 INTs. Petty certainly didn't look like the Jets' long-term answer at QB. Ryan Fitzpatrick figures to be under center for the finale against the Bills.

Jets QB Bryce Petty injured his left (non-throwing) shoulder in the 1st half of Sunday's game in New England. He's officially questionable to return. QB Ryan Fitzpatrick has entered the game for the Jets.

Jets QB Ryan Fitzpatrick was benched in the 3rd quarter of Monday night's loss to the Colts. He finished 5-of-12 for 81 yards with 0 TDs and 1 ugly INT. QB Bryce Petty replaced Fitzpatrick and wasn't much better, completing 11 of 25 passes for 135 yards, 1 TD and 2 INTs. HC Todd Bowles claimed after the game that it was "the plan all along" to start Petty for the final 4 games of the season. He won't be a fantasy option against the 49ers next weekend.

Jets HC Todd Bowles ended any QB speculation Monday by stating that Ryan Fitzpatrick will remain the starter and that there was "no debate," according to ESPN's Rich Cimini. Bowles declined to confirm Fitz's starter status Sunday night after the game, but the coach has shown similar caution with his words before. Fantasy owners should consider Fitzpatrick in the spot-starter mix for at least next Monday night's game against the Colts -- and likely at San Francisco in Week 14 as well.

Jets HC Todd Bowles named QB Ryan Fitzpatrick his Week 12 starter. Fitz hasn't been good this season -- completing 56.4% of his passes with 8 TDs and 13 INTs -- but he gives the offense a better chance than either Bryce Petty or Christian Hackenberg. Fitzpatrick draws a beatable Patriots pass defense on Sunday, but he can't be trusted outside of 2-QB leagues.

Jets QB Ryan Fitzpatrick (knee) is active for today's game against the Rams, but QB Bryce Petty gets the start. Petty figures to hang on to the starting gig as long as he plays well enough (which might not be very long).

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport hears that Jets players expect QB Bryce Petty to draw the start against the Rams today. QB Ryan Fitzpatrick was limited in practice this week with his knee injury, but it sounds like he's healthy enough to play. So this looks like a changing of the guard in New York. Fitzpatrick hasn't been good this season, but it's tough to imagine Petty being an upgrade in the short term. We moved Brandon Marshall down the Week 10 WR Rankings.

Update: ESPN's Adam Schefter confirms that Petty will start.

Jets QB Ryan Fitzpatrick (knee) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Rams. HC Todd Bowles labeled him a game-time decision on Friday, but Fitzpatrick practiced all week and is expected to play. QB Bryce Petty would start otherwise. Neither guy should be in fantasy lineups.

Jets QB Ryan Fitzpatrick put in a limited practice Wednesday after suffering an MCL sprain last time out. ESPN's Rich Cimini reports that Fitz is on track to play Sunday against the Rams. "I'm definitely optimistic that I'll be able to go our there and play," the QB said. "I'm going to do everything I can between now and then to make sure that happens." We'll keep an eye on his status throughout the week.

Jets QB Ryan Fitzpatrick has been diagnosed with a sprained MCL, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. The injury is "not considered serious, but could impact Jets QB decision," Schefter adds. It sounds like they're considering handing the reins to QB Bryce Petty. We'll continue to keep an eye on the situation, but neither Jets QB should be in your Week 10 fantasy plans.

Jets QB Ryan Fitzpatrick will get an MRI Monday after hurting his left knee in Sunday's loss to the Dolphins, according to ESPN's Rich Cimini. Fitzpatrick briefly left the game after hurting the knee but returned shortly thereafter. HC Todd Bowles has said that Fitzpatrick will remain the starter if he's ready to play. If he's not, it'll likely be QB Bryce Petty's turn.

Jets QB Geno Smith is believed to have suffered a torn ACL in Sunday's game against the Ravens, per NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. He'll undergo additional testing to confirm the injury that would end his season. Incredibly jinxed, Smith is due to hit the free-agent market this offseason. The Jets, meanwhile, will go back to Ryan Fitzpatrick under center. He gets a plus Week 8 matchup against Cleveland's 30th-ranked QB defense, putting him on the spot-start radar for bold fantasy owners.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that the Jets will name QB Geno Smith their Week 7 starter. HC Todd Bowles said QB Ryan Fitzpatrick would get the nod immediately after Monday night's loss to the Cardinals. But he evidently changed his mind after reviewing the tape. Smith wasn't any better in relief on Fitzpatrick in that one, completing 4 of 6 passes for 31 yards and an INT. He can't be trusted in fantasy lineups against the Ravens this weekend. But Smith does offer some rushing upside and is worth grabbing in 2-QB leagues.

Jets QB Ryan Fitzpatrick was yanked from Monday night's game against the Cardinals after throwing a 4th-quarter red-zone INT -- his 10th pick in the last 4 games. He finished 16 of 31 (51.6%) for 174 scoreless yards. QB Geno Smith replaced Fitzpatrick and was promptly picked off on his 6th attempt. We'll see who the Jets roll with vs. the Ravens next week, but neither guy can be trusted in fantasy lineups.

Update: HC Todd Bowles said after Monday night's game that Fitzpatrick will start Week 7. But he didn't commit to Fitzpatrick as his starter for the rest of the season.

The Jets have placed WR Eric Decker on IR, and he will have season-ending shoulder surgery, Pro Football Talk reports. That will obviously keep WR Quincy Enunwa prominently involved in the pass offense, which has already provided him 7+ targets and 4+ catches every week. He sits in WR3 territory across fantasy formats. Decker's absence also likely solidifies Brandon Marshall's WR1 status. QB Ryan Fitzpatrick gets a fantasy downgrade going forward, though he had already provided that with his play in recent weeks. Decker will be 30 in March, so his dynasty outlook certainly isn't trending in the right direction. We wouldn't bet on you being able to sell him for good value in such a format at this point, though.

The Jets re-signed QB Ryan Fitzpatrick to a 1-year deal worth $12 million. Finally. Fitz returns just in time for training camp, as the Jets first practice is Thursday. It’s great news for Eric Decker and Brandon Marshall, who showed excellent chemistry with Fitzpatrick last season. While the veteran passer is a long-shot to post another QB1 season, a loaded offense — and his success alongside OC Chan Gailey — indicates that Fitz will remain useful in 2016.

There's been no progress recently in contract talks between QB Ryan Fitzpatrick and the Jets. In fact, ESPN's Jeremy Fowler reports that the 2 sides haven't talked in "over a month." NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, meanwhile, hears that the team might be waiting to see some work from QB Geno Smith before making a move on Fitzpatrick. "It certainly could be within the realm of possibility that we have to see not just a little bit of Geno Smith, like maybe a couple reps in OTAs or minicamp, but a lot of Geno Smith, maybe even into preseason games, for there to be some sort of movement here between the Jets and Fitzpatrick," Rapoport said. While Fitzpatrick returning to New York remains the most likely scenario, it's far from a guarantee. Perhaps OC Chan Gailey believes his offense will be just fine with Smith under center.

ESPN's Rich Cimini reports that the Jets' offer to QB Ryan Fitzpatrick -- which has been on the table for at least 2 months -- is a 3-year deal that would pay him $12 million in 2016. Cimini didn't have the details on the full contract amount or the total guaranteed money, but that number checks in higher than the $8 million that had previously been reported. The timing of this leak coincides with WR Eric Decker skipping OTA workouts to voice his displeasure over Fitzpatrick not getting a new deal yet. WR Brandon Marshall also missed practices, though his motivation isn't yet clear. The leak also indicates that the Jets feel pretty good about their offer, while Cimini reports that Fitz is "thought to be" seeking $15 million per year. It's still a little early for either side to suffer from a sense of urgency. We'd bet on Fitzpatrick re-signing, but we obviously can't count on it at this point. Fitz is a risky pick in current drafts, while his situation adds risk to other Jets pass-catchers as well.

Jets WR Eric Decker is skipping OTAs this week because he's upset the team has yet to re-sign QB Ryan Fitzpatrick, according to insider Brian Costello.  New York's QB depth chart currently includes Geno Smith, Bryce Petty and rookie Christian Hackenberg.  We ultimately expect Fitzpatrick to return, but the contract negotiations are costing the offense valuable offseason reps.

The Jets selected QB Christian Hackenberg with the 51st pick of the 2016 NFL Draft. Hackenberg looked like a potential future #1 overall pick after completing 58.9% of his passes with 20 TDs and 10 INTs as a true freshman in 2013. But his play fell off a cliff the past 2 seasons, with a 54.8% completion rate, 28 TDs and 21 INTs. Hackenberg has prototypical size (6’4, 223 pounds) and plenty of arm strength. But his inconsistent accuracy is a major concern. The Jets obviously see them as their QB of the future but the plan is to start him off on the bench, per NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport. We’ll see if New York can reach a contract agreement with QB Ryan Fitzpatrick.
