Ryan Fitzpatrick Fantasy News

Friday, December 30, 2016, 6:42pm

Jets WR Robby Anderson (hamstring, questionable) missed practice again Friday and is questionable for Week 17. Anderson should play, but with Ryan Fitzpatrick back under center, we don’t expect his increased targets to continue.

Jets to start Ryan Fitzpatrick at QB

Tuesday, December 27, 2016, 5:25pm

ESPN - [Full Article]

New York Jets coach Todd Bowles will start Ryan Fitzpatrick at quarterback for the final game of the season instead of rookie Christian Hackenberg -- a decision that is unlikely to help the coach's sinking popularity.

Bowles made the announcement Tuesday, ignoring public sentiment for Hackenberg, who has yet to play a regular-season snap.

Fantasy Impact:

Hackenberg will be the No. 2 quarterback, but he won't play against the Bills unless Fitzpatrick is injured, according to Bowles. Later, the coach left open the possibility that Hackenberg could see mop-up duty in the fourth quarter.

As expected, Bryce Petty’s audition as the Jets quarterback ended after Saturday’s 41-3 loss to the Patriots at Gillette Stadium.

The Jets revealed Monday Petty suffered a torn labrum in his left shoulder during the game when he tried to make a tackle after a fumble by Jets running back Khiry Robinson.

The team announced it had placed the second-year quarterback on injured reserve and added linebacker Corey Lemonier to the roster in his place.

Fantasy Impact:

Unfortunately for Petty, it doesn’t appear he answered any questions definitively about whether he should be the starter in 2017. As for Sunday’s game against the Bills, Ryan Fitzpatrick is expected to start with rookie second-round draft pick Christian Hackenberg likely to be dressed as the backup for the first time in his career.

Jets quarterback Bryce Petty can breathe a sigh of relief.

NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported Monday that tests turned out OK for the quarterback on his chest after sustaining a hard hit on Saturday night against the Dolphins.

Fantasy Impact:

Petty went down on the first play of the fourth quarter, forcing veteran Ryan Fitzpatrick into relief for the second time after being benched. Petty committed three turnovers on just 20-of-36 passing prior to leaving the game. Petty now gets a matchup with the New England Patriots on Christmas Eve.

Jets don't plan to play QB Christian Hackenberg

Tuesday, December 6, 2016, 5:31pm

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

Tuesday, December 6, 2016, 9:30am

NJ.com - [Full Article]

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

Monday, November 28, 2016, 8:36am

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.”

Related players: Bryce Petty

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 Quincy Enunwa (neck) took full practice reps again Friday. Enunwa is a Sneaky Start with Ryan Fitzpatrick back under center and the Patriots’ focus on stopping Brandon Marshall and Matt Forte.

Friday, November 25, 2016, 6:43pm

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.
