Former Dolphins’ QB Ryan Fitzpatrick reached agreement with the Washington Football Team on a one-year deal worth $10 million that could grow to $12 million with incentives, per source. Fitzpatrick is expected to head to camp as the starter, with competition from Taylor Heinicke.
FitzMagic will compete with Taylor Heinicke but is likely to win the starting job in Washington. It's good news for Terry McLaurin and Logan Thomas (and the rest of the Washington offense) since Fitzpatrick can still sling it and isn't afraid to put his receivers in a position to make plays. If he does win the job, he'll be a consistent option as a streamer in the weeks when he has a favorable matchup.
MIA QB Ryan Fitzpatrick - Week 13 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 13 vs. Cincinnati Bengals
Ryan Fitzpatrick started last week in place of an injured Tua Tagovailoa (thumb), and had a fine game with 257 yards, two touchdowns and no turnovers. Despite being benched, Fitzpatrick has played really well for the Dolphins this season, and is a perfect streaming option for fantasy owners with injured quarterbacks, or quarterbacks on bye. Tagovailoa has been limited in practice this week, so it's not apparent if he'll rejoin the team as a starter in Week 13. If Tagovailoa is out, Fitzpatrick becomes a low-end QB1 play in a favorable matchup against the Bengals (No. 31 aFPA0. After a tough start in Week 1, Fitzpatrick has averaged 2.3 touchdowns per game in his last six starts.
