Jets don't plan to play QB Christian Hackenberg

NJ.com - [Full Article]

Jets coach Todd Bowles said Tuesday that barring an injury to new starting quarterback Bryce Petty, rookie Christian Hackenberg won't play in 2017.

The 3-9 Jets are going with Petty, a second-year pro, over Ryan Fitzpatrick for the final four games of this brutal season, which hit its low point in Monday night's 41-10 loss to the Colts.

But Fitzpatrick, and not Hackenberg, will be the backup -- at least at first.

Fantasy Impact:

Bowles said Hackenberg simply hasn't received enough practice reps, while sitting behind Fitzpatrick and Petty on the depth chart, to be ready to play this year. And that's why Hackenberg is not the Jets' new backup quarterback.

Jets to start QB Bryce Petty final four games

Jets coach Todd Bowles has, at long last, made the decision to sit quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick for good, and get an evaluation of second-year pro Bryce Petty as the starter.

Petty will start the final four games for the 3-9 Jets, beginning with Sunday's trip to San Francisco.

Fantasy Impact:

Fitzpatrick was benched once already, after the Jets started 1-5. He was benched again at halftime of Monday night's 41-10 loss to the Colts. Fitzpatrick threw an interception and had a 30.2 quarterback rating in the first half. Petty has some talent to work with at WR and RB but it remains to be seen how much of a spark he can provide so he'll be a risky fantasy option.

Jets to stick with Ryan Fitzpatrick at QB

Monday, November 28, 2016, 5:41pm

New York Post - [Full Article]

Eight is not enough for Todd Bowles to pull the plug on Ryan Fitzpatrick.

The Jets lost their eighth game of the season Sunday, a 22-17 loss to the Patriots, but Bowles said Monday Fitzpatrick will remain the starting quarterback next Monday, when the Jets play the Colts.

Fantasy Impact:

Those who cheer for the team, and perhaps even the NY media, seem to want the Jets to play Bryce Petty, the 2015 fourth-round pick, with an eye toward the future. But Bowles said that was not even a consideration after the Patriots loss. Fitz didn't play poorly most of the game but had a fumbled that pretty much sealed the fate of the Jets late in the game.

No decision yet on Jets QB for Week 13

Pro Football Talk - [Full Article]

Jets HC Todd Bowles wouldn’t say whether QB Ryan Fitzpatrick would be back in the lineup for Week 13.

“I’ll evaluate everything this week going forward,” Bowles said, via NJ.com. “I’m not going to make a decision today, or a rash decision one way or another. … For the most part, he was efficient. He didn’t turn the ball over until the very end. Offensively, we moved the ball. We just need to find more ways to score one more touchdown than they did.”

Fantasy Impact:

Fitzpatrick didn’t turn the ball over until the very end of Sunday’s game, but his late fumble was the final nail in the team’s coffin in a 22-17 loss to the Patriots. Fitzpatrick had turned in one of his best performances of the season. He ended the game 22-of-32 for 269 yards and two touchdowns. Petty would be the likely started if the team goes in a different direction from Fitz.

Jets WR Brandon Marshall (foot) took full practice reps on Friday after being limited earlier in the week. Marshall should be fine for a tough matchup against the Patriots, but it’s probably a good sign that Ryan Fitzpatrick is back under center. The veteran is coming off of a bye, so he should be well-rested.

Jets to start QB Ryan Fitzpatrick

USA Today - [Full Article]

Ryan Fitzpatrick will be the New York Jets' starting quarterback Sunday against the New England Patriots.

Coach Todd Bowles made the announcement after practice Monday, the players' first day back at the facility since last Tuesday following a bye-week break.

Related players: Bryce Petty

Fantasy Impact:

Fitzpatrick sat out the Jets' previous game against Los Angeles on Nov. 13 with a sprained left knee. Bryce Petty made his first regular-season NFL start and went 19 of 32 for 163 yards with a touchdown and an interception in the 9-6 loss. Bowles said last week that he would consider which quarterback would give the Jets (3-7) the best chance of winning against the Patriots (8-2). The coach says the fact Fitzpatrick is healthy again contributed to his decision, adding that he's the starter "and we're going forward with that," the story said.
