Ryan Fitzpatrick Fantasy Football News 2020

Dolphins GM Chris Grier "fully expects" QB Ryan Fitzpatrick to be back for 2020. He's due a reasonable $8 million, so it makes plenty of sense to bring him back even if he doesn't start all year. Miami is a strong bet to select a QB in the 1st round of this spring's draft, but Fitzpatrick could certainly open the season under center. He exceed expectations in 2019 and ranked 17th at his position in fantasy points per game.

The forecast for today's Bengals-Dolphins game calls for sustained winds of 15-20 mph with gusts up to 30. That's enough to impact the passing and kicking games. Check the updated projections for all the guys in this game.

The forecast for today's Dolphins-Giants game calls for sustained winds of 20 mph with gusts of 25+. That's enough to impact the deep-passing and kicking games. Give slight downgrades to the QBs and Ks in this game. And the downfield prowess of WRs like DeVante Parker and Darius Slayton figures to be compromised.

Dolphins QB Ryan Fitzpatrick will start this weekend's game against the Bills, HC Brian Flores announced Wednesday. Why? Couldn't tell ya. Fitzpatrick isn't an option in any fantasy league in an impossible spot in Buffalo vs. the league's 4th-ranked QB defense.

Dolphins QB Josh Rosen was benched in the 2nd half of Sunday's game against the Redskins after completing 15 of 25 passes for 85 scoreless yards and 2 INTs. QB Ryan Fitzpatrick is in the game for Miami. We'll see who they go with in Week 7 in Buffalo -- but continue to stay far, far away from the situation in fantasy football.

Dolphins QB Josh Rosen exited in the 2nd quarter of Sunday's game in Dallas for a concussion check. We'll pass along an update when we get one. QB Ryan Fitzpatrick has entered the game for Miami.

Update: Rosen re-entered after missing just a few snaps.

The Dolphins have named QB Ryan Fitzpatrick the starter for the regular-season opener, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports. That puts Fitzpatrick in charge of an ugly Miami offense that opens vs. the Ravens and Patriots at home and then the Cowboys on the road. Don't expect to mine much fantasy football value here. We'll see how quick the hook might be if Fitzpatrick and the offense struggle.

Dolphins QB Josh Rosen drew the start in Friday night's preseason game against the Bucs. He played the entire 1st half, completing 10 of 18 passes (55.6%) for 102 yards (5.7 YPA). Rosen's receivers dropped a couple of balls, but he was also spared an INT when Bucs CB Jamel Dean dropped an easy one. Rosen also took 3 sacks. It was a mostly uninspiring performance -- but QB Ryan Fitzpatrick didn't fare any better, completing just 3 of 9 passes for 20 yards on 3 possessions. HC Brian Flores announced after the game that Fitzpatrick will start the 3rd exhibition. That seemingly makes him the favorite to be under center come Week 1. But this continues to be a situation to avoid in fantasy drafts.

Dolphins HC Brian Flores said Tuesday of his team's QB competition, "It's pretty clear to me that Ryan Fitzpatrick is leading the way," according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. That has seemed to be the word since workouts began. The Fitzpatrick-Josh Rosen battle only really matters for leagues deep enough to draft all QB starters. Fitzpatrick has proved his weekly upside with several franchises to date, though.

QB Ryan Fitzpatrick worked with the starters on the 1st day of Dolphins training camp Thursday. It'd frankly make zero sense for the rebuilding Dolphins to play the 36-year-old Fitzpatrick over Josh Rosen. But we've seen NFL teams do dumber things than that. Fitzpatrick, of course, would be a more exciting fantasy option than Rosen. Fantasy owners should avoid this situation in drafts until the Fins name a Week 1 starter.

The Dolphins have agreed to a 2-year, $11 million contract with QB Ryan Fitzpatrick, according to multiple reports. The deal sets Fitzpatrick up as the starter on a depth chart that just lost Ryan Tannehill to trade. We'll see what else Miami does this offseason at the position.

Buccaneers HC Dirk Koetter said Monday that he'll stick with QB Ryan Fitzpatrick as his starter for Sunday's visit to the Giants. Fitzpatrick threw a pair of INTs and lost a fumble in the Week 10 loss to Washington but also threw for 406 yards while piloting an offense that topped 500 yards for the game. Another rough outing, however, seems likely to get him the hook. As always, we'll keep watching this QB situation. Whoever's starting carries intriguing fantasy upside just about every week.

Bucs HC Dirk Koetter admitted that he'll consider going back to QB Jameis Winston after Sunday's loss to the Redskins. "Of course, yes ... We'll talk about all personnel issues tomorrow," Koetter said in his post-game presser. QB Ryan Fitzpatrick chucked for 406 yards vs. Washington, but he finished with 0 TDs, threw 2 INTs and lost a fumble. We'll see who the Bucs roll with for Week 11. Whoever it is will be a viable QB1 against the Giants.

Buccaneers HC Dirk Koetter announced Monday that QB Ryan Fitzpatrick will start the Week 9 game at Carolina. It was basically a necessary move after Jameis Winston threw his way to 4 INTs and a double-digit deficit at Cincinnati, and then Fitzpatrick marched them back for a late tie. We've seen both extremes of Fitzpatrick this season, from the 1st 3 weeks that had him leading all fantasy QBs in scoring to the Chicago game that got him yanked. The Panthers arrive as a neutral scoring matchup for QBs on the year, though slightly positive according to our adjusted fantasy points allowed. Fitzpatrick will be a streaming-level option for Week 9. We'll see how he performs there before projecting this situation beyond Week 9. Matchups with Washington and the Giants over the following 2 weeks don't present special fantasy upside, but then come 3 straight potential spot-start home matchups: 49ers, Panthers and Saints. Go ahead and pick up Fitzpatrick if you're shopping the QB market this week. We'd hold off on dropping Winston for now, though, if you can sacrifice the roster spot.

Bucs QB Jameis Winston was benched late in the 3rd quarter after throwing his 4th INT of the game. All of the picks were ugly. Winston finished 18 of 35 (51.4%) for 276 yards and just 1 TD. QB Ryan Fitzpatrick is in for Tampa. We'll see who they go with in Week 9.
