Ryan Fitzpatrick feeling 'pretty good'

Sunday, August 7, 2016, 3:39pm

ESPN - [Full Article]

Nine days into training camp, after not taking part in any of the team's offseason program, New York Jets quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick said the rust is off.

"I feel pretty good right now," Fitzpatrick said after the Jets practiced in front of their fans at their training facility Saturday. "I think we've made some good progress so far, and we're headed in the right direction. We've just got to continue to work and get better every day -- it's definitely been a productive nine days."

Fantasy Impact:

Fitzpatrick had a good day on Saturday, unofficially completing 15 of 20 passes with one touchdown and no interceptions, the story said. And while Jets coach Todd Bowles was conservative in his evaluation of the quarterback -- "He's catching up," Bowles said -- Fitzpatrick said he was surprised at how good his arm has felt so far.

Scouting Report

Fantasy Upside
Now that the business side has been settled, Ryan Fitzpatrick can get back to work. The veteran put some of the best numbers of his career in 2015 and with all of his weapons back, he should be poised to continue to have success. He has a new offensive coordinator in Chan Gailey, who has been very good with quarterbacks of all levels.

Fantasy Downside
Even though Fitzpatrick put up some outstanding numbers last season, the 15 interceptions were a little worrisome. And how much longer can he play at high level. Some quarterbacks do start to slow down in their mid 30s which is where Fitzpatrick is headed.

2016 Bottom Line
The Jets are glad Fitzpatrick is back and I am sure fantasy owners are too. Although, it's hard to expect the same numbers from last year, he remains a viable QB2 and can even give you QB1 numbers at times. Fitzpatrick has been steady for most of his career and overall he can be a major fantasy asset in 2016.
