Fitzpatrick expected back in Miami | Shark Bites | Draft Sharks

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.

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.

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 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.
