| Fitzpatrickís 2011 season mirrored that of the Bills as he started the season on a hot streak before cooling off considerably over the seasonís 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.
|Jets, Fitzpatrick no closer to deal -- Wed Jun 1 6:27 am --|
|Despite chatter over past week, Jets and Ryan Fitzpatrick are not any closer to a deal. Salary stalemate continues. And could for a while. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)|
FF Today's Take: Fitzpatrick is reportedly upses with the amount of money being offered. With no other viable alternatives on the market, its likely the Jets and Fitz will agree on a deal. Until then, his fantasy value along with the values of Brandon Marshall and Eric Decker remain on hold.
