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.

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 Ryan Fitzpatrick was benched at halftime of Sunday's game in Chicago. Tampa's defense was just as much to blame for the 35-point deficit, but Fitzpatrick completed just 9 of 18 for 126 yards and an INT. QB Jameis Winston will finish out this game -- and we're expecting him to be under center when the Bucs come out of their Week 5 bye.

ESPN's Adam Schefter confirms that Bucs QB Ryan Fitzpatrick will start today's game against the Bears. Fitz is buried in our Week 4 QB Rankings in Chicago, where the Bears have allowed just 16.4 points and .9 pass TDs per game across 9 outings dating back to the start of last season. His performance today will go a long way toward determining whether Fitzpatrick or Jameis Winston is under center when the Bucs come out of their Week 5 bye.
