Jets will stick with Ryan Fitzpatrick - [Full Article]

The Jets are in the midst of a season-threatening slump, but Todd Bowles isn't ready to make a change at the quarterback position.

The coach announced Monday that Ryan Fitzpatrick will remain behind center when the 5-5 Jets host the 4-6 Dolphins on Sunday at MetLife Stadium.

Bowles inadvertently started speculation of a QB switch when he appeared to duck a question about Fitzpatrick's status shortly after the veteran threw two fourth-quarter interceptions in a damaging 24-17 loss to the Texans.

After Bowles made his announcement on Monday, a reporter asked if Fitzpatrick would be on a short leash against the Dolphins.

"He's our starting QB," Bowles replied.

Fantasy Impact: 

Fitzpatrick wasn't helped by his receivers on Sunday -- Brandon Marshall and Devin Smith each had crippling drops on deep balls -- but the veteran's recent struggles have mirrored the slump of a Jets team that started the season at 4-1. Fitzpatrick was also checked for a concussion and did pass those tests during the game, but returned to throw the INTs.
