Miami Dolphins quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick had his best game of the season on Sunday, completing 23-of-35 passes for 282 yards and two touchdowns in a 31-21 loss to the Buffalo Bills. Fitzpatrick's second touchdown of the day was an 11-yard run that brought the Dolphins to within a field goal with less than two minutes remaining, but Fitzpatrick wouldnt get a chance to see if he had any magic left, as the ensuing onside kick attempt was run back for a Buffalo touchdown. While Fitzpatricks 18 points represent a high on the season and also came against one of the leagues best pass defenses, dont be fooled into thinking this was a good day for the 36-year-old veteran starting in place of a benched Josh Rosen. Fitzpatrick led the Dolphins on a ten-minute drive to open the second half, driving 63 yards but then made a critical mistake by throwing a back-breaking interception at the goal line. The Bills then proceeded to march 98 yards down the field for a touchdown and a lead they wouldnt relinquish again. Even facing a struggling Pittsburgh Steelers team on Monday Night Football in Week 8, Fitzpatrick wont be a recommended play in fantasy and should be left on the waiver wire.
Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Fitzpatrick went 23-for-35 for 282 yards, one touchdown and one interception against the Buffalo Bills in Week 7. He also rushed for 13 yards and one touchdown on six carries during the game.
Fantasy Spin: Fitzpatrick regained the starting job this week and had a decent outing. He should have some success against the Pittsburgh Steelers next week but probably should only be an option in two-quarterback leagues.
After being benched following a Week 2 loss to the New England Patriots, Miami Dolphins quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick has been named the starter for a Week 7 matchup in Buffalo. Fitzpatrick replaced starter Josh Rosen in the fourth quarter of Miami's loss to the Washington Redskins in Week 6, leading the Dolphins on two touchdown drives but ultimately falling short of victory. Facing his most recent former team, Fitzpatrick may find it tough sledding in Buffalo, as the Bills are allowing less than 10 points per game to opposing quarterbacks, a mark that is fourth-best in the league. Even having regained his starting position, Fitzpatrick doesn't belong anywhere but on the waiver wire until further notice.
Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Fitzpatrick will start in Week 7 against the Buffalo Bills.
Fantasy Spin: The Bills are a bad matchup for Fitzpatrick, and he's really only worth considering in two-quarterback leagues.
Miami Dolphins head coach Brian Flores announced on Wednesday that quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick will start over Josh Rosen in Week 7 against the Bills. Rosen failed against the Redskins in Week 6 and was benched in favor of the veteran late in the game. Fitzpatrick has had his ups and downs this year. He likely gives Miami a better chance to win in the short term, but he'll be an unappealing QB2 in a terrifying matchup against Buffalo's strong defense on the road this Sunday.
Called upon in the fourth quarter to take over an offense that had thus far been stagnant, Miami Dolphins quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick almost pulled out Miami's first win of the season in Week 6 before ultimately losing to the Washington Redskins 17-16. Fitzpatrick entered the game and led the Dolphins on two touchdown drives, including an 11-yard touchdown pass to Devante Parker with six seconds left in the game that put the Dolphins down just 17-16. Electing to go for two, Fitzpatrick found an open Kenyan Drake in the flat but Drake was unable to haul the pass in, ensuring that Miami keeps on rolling towards 0-16 and the number-one pick in the draft. Even with the near-heroics, head coach Randy Flores says Josh Rosen will remain the starter going forward, making Fitzpatrick unplayable in fantasy until further notice.
Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Fitzpatrick completed 12-of-18 passes for 132 yards, one touchdown and no interceptions off the bench in Week 6 against the Washington Redskins.
Fantasy Spin: It's mixed signals from head coach Brian Flores, who said Josh Rosen was the starter for the remainder of the season, then he pulls him at the first sign of trouble. Avoid the situation completely for fantasy purposes.
Miami Dolphins QB Josh Rosen was benched during the Week 6 game and has been replaced by QB Ryan Fitzpatrick.
Fantasy Spin: The Dolphins recently said that Rosen would be the starter for the rest of the season, but it appears they are going back to Fitzpatrick at least for now. Fantasy players probably should avoid the Dolphins quarterback situation.
Miami Dolphins QBs Ryan Fitzpatrick and Josh Rosen shared snaps with the starting offense in practice Thursday, Sept. 19. Head coach Brian Flores says Fitzpatrick remains the team's starter 'right now.'
Fantasy Spin: Given the disaster in South Beach, neither is fantasy option outside of deep two-QB leagues and even then they're almost unusable as Rosen has come in for the starter Fitzpatrick in each of Miami's first two games.
Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Fitzpatrick will get the start for Week 3 versus the Dallas Cowboys, although head coach Brian Flores made it clear to the media Monday, Sept. 16, that the team is 'evaluating all positions.'
Fantasy Spin: Nothing much to see here. The Dolphins have been horrendous thus far, averaging five points and 192 yards of offense. It doesn't seem like it will take much longer before Miami pulls the plug here, but the question is whether Josh Rosen will be given much of a chance to prove himself behind the same poor offensive line. Pretty much any Dolphin player is not worth using in fantasy at the moment.
Miami Dolphins quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick remains the team's starter heading into Week 3 against the Cowboys, according to head coach Brian Flores. There has been zero Fitzmagic in Miami in two games to begin the 2019 season, and the 36-year-old veteran was 11-for-21 for 89 yards and three interceptions, including two pick-sixes, in the 43-0 beatdown by the Patriots in Week 2. Fitzpatrick was benched for backup Josh Rosen for the second straight week in the fourth quarter, and he has completed half of his 50 attempts for one touchdown and four picks through two games. Fitzpatrick shouldn't even be a consideration in fantasy going up against an improved Dallas defense this weekend. It probably won't be long before Rosen is starting games for this rebuilding franchise.
The mercy rule was finally invoked for Miami Dolphins quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick after he threw his second pick-six to put Miami down 37-0 to the visiting New England Patriots. The Dolphins offense was again completely impotent with Fitzpatrick under center, totaling only 28 yards in their first eight drives. And while their next two drives doubled up that production with 55 total yards, they both also ended with Fitzpatrick passes being returned for touchdowns by the Patriots. Even if Fitzpatrick manages to keep his starting job for Week 3 against Dallas, he will remain unviable in all fantasy formats.
Coming off an uninspiring performance in Week 1, the future doesn't look much brighter for Miami Dolphins quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick in a Week 2 home matchup with the New England Patriots. Fitzpatrick completed 14-for-29 passes for 185 yards, one touchdown, and one interception in his first start for the Dolphins but most of the damage came after the game was already out of hand, with the Dolphins ultimately losing 59-10 at home to the Ravens. Surrounded by few offensive weapons and protected by a shaky offensive line, Fitzpatrick is only worth a desperation start in leagues starting more than one quarterback.
The Miami Dolphins placed offensive tackle Julie'n Davenport (knee, leg) on Injured Reserve on Friday, but he's a candidate to return later this season. Davenport came over to Miami in the trade that sent Laremy Tunsil to the Texans, and he started at right tackle in the Week 1 blowout loss to the Ravens. It's more bad news for a Miami team that already looks like the worst team in the NFL by a long shot. Quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick and the offense have very little upside going into a Week 2 matchup with the Patriots. It's David against Goliath at its finest. New England's defense/special teams should be started everywhere.
The Miami Dolphins are considering placing offensive tackle Julie'n Davenport (knee) on the Injured Reserve. However, there's still a chance that Davenport could come back this year if he goes on IR. It would just be more bad news for an offensive line that already traded their best talent, Laremy Tunsil, to the Texans. Miami's offense is already one of the most inspiring in the league with quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick running the show, so this certainly wouldn't help. It probably won't be long before the 'Phins go to backup Josh Rosen in a rebuilding year.
Even after getting pulled in the second half of a 59-10 loss to the Baltimore Ravens, Miami Dolphins quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick will keep his job for at least one more week, according to Miami head coach Brian Flores. Fitzpatrick was uninspiring in his debut for Miami, going 14-for-29 for 185 yards, a touchdown and an interception before being pulled at the end of the third quarter with the Dolphins down 52-10. Unable to move the offense at all, most of Fitzpatrick's yards came with the game already out of hand, as the Ravens were already up 42-3 midway through the second quarter. Fitzpatrick may still be the starter in Week 2 against the Patriots but he's currently not viable in any fantasy format.
Miami Dolphins quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick was pulled in the second half of the Week 1 game against the Ravens after going 14-for-29 for 185 yards, a touchdown and an interception. Josh Rosen will take over the rest of the way in the blowout, with the Ravens up 52-10 in the fourth quarter. Fitz entered the regular season as the starter but didn't even make it through a full game. It remains to be seen if the Dolphins staff will consider him an option to start in Week 2, but the Dolphins are better off seeing what they can get from a younger Rosen in a rebuilding year. With not much in the passing game, Rosen won't be much of a QB2 if he starts next week over Fitzpatrick.
The Miami Dolphins have officially named quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick the Week 1 starter against the Ravens. Fitzpatrick underwhelmed in limited preseason action, but the rebuilding 'Phins are still electing to go with him under the younger Josh Rosen. Even in two-QB leagues, Fitzpatrick isn't a recommended option, and he'll have his hands full against a strong Baltimore defense in the season opener. Fitzmagic might have his moments, but he has very little upside and will be on a short leash in 2019. We'd bet that Rosen makes more starts this year when all is said and done.
Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Fitzpatrick will start against the Baltimore Ravens in Week 1, according to head coach Brian Flores.
Fantasy Spin: Fitzpatrick will deliver the occasional big game, but he is not the long-term solution under center for the Dolphins or for fantasy owners.
Miami Dolphins quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick is expected to be the starter for the team's Week 1 contest against the Ravens. While the Dolphins offense is one of the worst in the NFL, if Fitzpatrick is at the helm, expect the team to air the ball out. Wide receivers Kenny Stills, Albert Wilsonand Devante Parker could all benefit fantasy-wise from the gunslinger's arm. Unfortunately, their floor remains extremely volatile, as Fitzpatrick's production varies from week to week. Miami's receivers will be boom or bust on a week-to-week basis, especially Stills and Parker. Wilson is probably the safest of the trio in PPR leagues.
