|Fitzpatrick’s 2011 season mirrored that of the Bills as he started the season on a hot streak before cooling off considerably over the season’s second half. He topped 25 fantasy points in each of his first three starts, throwing for 841 yards and 9 touchdowns in wins over the Chiefs, Raiders and Patriots. From that point on, it was mostly downhill with Fitzpatrick displaying the inconsistency that has plagued his career as he finished the season with a career-high and league-leading 24 interceptions. Rewarded with a $59-million, six-year contract extension after Week 6, his production plummeted with five games under 210 yards passing over his final ten weeks – a period in which he threw for 12 touchdowns and 17 interceptions. While injuries to running back Fred Jackson and at the wide receiver position were part of the problem, a substantial portion of the blame goes to Fitzpatrick whose accuracy got worse as the season progressed. While his season ended badly, Fitzpatrick still finished as the 11th ranked fantasy quarterback which was generally higher than predicted. Consider him an upper tier backup once again in 2012 (the Bills threw it 58% of the time in 2011) and move him down in leagues that penalize for turnovers given his propensity for throwing interceptions.
|Geno Smith the unquestioned starter for Jets -- Wed May 20 5:43 pm --|
No QB controversy for Jets entering 2015
|FLORHAM PARK — There will be no Jets quarterback competition this summer: offensive coordinator Chan Gailey on Wednesday said Geno Smith would be the team's starter heading into the regular season.
"Right now, Geno's the starter," Gailey said. "Unless something happens—an injury, or something like that, that you don't perceive, that's how we anticipate it going."
FF Today's Take: Although veteran QB Ryan Fitzpatrick was brought in to be a capable backup, HC Todd Bowles is sticking to his plan by naming Geno Smith his starting quarterback. Geno Smith finished the 2014 regular season averaging a paltry 180 passing yards per game. New OC Chan Gailey will be tasked with getting more out of the Jet's passing game this season.
