2016 Outlook
Depth Chart
After an arduous contract battle, Ryan Fitzpatrick returns to the New York Jets and to the offensive coordinator who has helped guide his most successful seasons, Chan Gailey. Shockingly, Fitzpatrick is now the Jets’ record holder for touchdown passes in a single season (31), which doubles a career high. He also achieved a career high with 3,905 passing yards while showing some of that #FitzMagic by adding 270 yards and two scores with his 33 year-old legs. While his raw numbers looked fantastic the truth is he was lucky to escape with only 15 interceptions, as many potential INTs were dropped by opposing defenses. He also benefited from his wide receivers more than any quarterback in the league. The Amish Rifle would often put the ball into tight windows and allow Brandon Marshall and Eric Decker to use their size and strength advantages to come away with the reception.

While the Jets will face a far more difficult schedule this year, it’s unlikely that Fitz’ numbers will suffer all that much since he’ll still have Marshall and Decker to rely on and will add a healthy Jace Amaro and veteran running back Matt Forte to his arsenal of weapons in the passing game. Fitzpatrick has his limitations due to his weak arm but has mastered Gailey’s quarterback friendly system and knows that he can rely on his guys to make plays. Fantasy Football owners that like to take a QBBC approach should strongly consider Fitz in the later rounds, as his floor, barring injury, is fairly high given his team’s offensive system and skill position support.

News From The Past 90 Days
Fitzpatrick to start for Jets
Bowles not ready to make switch to Petty
By: Mike Krueger | Mon Nov 21, 1:45 pm

New York Jets
On the verge of losing his job to Bryce Petty after sitting out the last game (Nov. 13) with a mild knee sprain, Ryan Fitzpatrick will start for the struggling Jets when they face the first-place New England Patriots Sunday at MetLife Stadium. (ESPN)

FFToday's Take: HC Todd Bowles doesn't have much of a choice if he wants to stay in the good graces with his players as Bryce Petty and Christian Hackenberg don't give the team the best chance to win. Fitzpatrick is tied for the league lead in interceptions with 13.


Bowles to choose QB on Monday
Bryce Petty goes 19 for 32 in debut
By: Jake Gordon | Wed Nov 16, 2:46 pm

New York Jets
FLORHAM PARK — Bryce Petty or Ryan Fitzpatrick? It's not clear yet which of these Jets quarterbacks will start after the bye week, against the Patriots. Coach Todd Bowles expects to make his decision by Monday. But one thing is clear: Bowles will have the final say. (NJ.com)

FFToday's Take: New York's passing attack has absolutely dried up this season. They rank 29th in the NFL in passing yards per game and dead last in QB Rating. Whether it's Week 11 or later, HC Todd Bowles will eventually need to prioritize the 2017 season. Ryan Fitzpatrick isn't under contract for next season so look for Bryce Petty and Christian Hackenburg to get more reps in the coming weeks.


Injury Bryce Petty to start for Jets
Sprained MCL for Fitzpatrick
By: Mike Krueger | Sun Nov 13, 9:10 am

New York Jets
So, Jets are starting QB Bryce Petty today vs Rams, per sources. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Ryan Fitzpatrick was able to practice this week on a limited basis but it appears the Jets will roll with Petty against the Rams. Brandon Marshall gets a bump down the rankings with Petty at QB while Rams-D makes for a solid play in Week 10.


Injury Jets' Fitzpatrick optimistic about playing
Sprained knee
By: Jake Gordon | Wed Nov 9, 5:56 pm

New York Jets
FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) -- New York Jets quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick says he is ''definitely optimistic'' that he'll be able to play Sunday against the Los Angeles Rams despite having a sprained left knee. (AP Sports)

FFToday's Take: Ryan Fitzpatrick hasn't thrown multiple touchdown passes in a single game since Week 1 (when he was healthy) so don't expect much improvement if his mobility is compromised. 2015 fourth rounder Bryce Petty would be in line for the start if Fitzpatrick isn't given medical clearance. The whole situation puts a damper on the fantasy prospects for Brandon Marshall, Quincy Enunwa and the rest of the Jets' pass catchers.


Injury Fitzpatrick suffers MCL sprain
No decision on starting QB
By: Mike Krueger | Mon Nov 7, 11:30 am

New York Jets
Jets QB Ryan Fitzpatrick sprained his MCL in Sunday vs. Miami, per source. Injury not considered serious, but could impact Jets QB decision. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Fitzpatrick was replaced by Bryce Petty for a short period before returning to action. The Jets have yet to name a starting quarterback for Week 10, but neither Fitzpatrick or Petty would be a recommended play against the Rams.


Injury Geno Smith suffers torn ACL
Ryan Fitzpatrick expected to start Week 8
By: Mike Krueger | Mon Oct 24, 12:21 pm

New York Jets
Sources: Based on initial MRI, belief is that #Jets QB Geno Smith tore his ACL. Incredible. Players in the locker room are learning about it (Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Smith's time as the Jets No.1 QB was brief. He'll know have to wait a calendar year before getting a crack at a starting job again. Expect Ryan Fitzpatrick to be the starter Week 8 but given his uneven play it's not out of the question for Christian Hackenberg and/or Bryce Petty to see action toward the end of the season.


Geno Smith to start for Jets
Jets need a spark
By: Mike Krueger | Wed Oct 19, 11:45 am

New York Jets
Desperate for a spark, the New York Jets are turning to Geno Smith as their quarterback. League sources told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter that Smith will replace Ryan Fitzpatrick, who has compiled an 11-11 record as the Jets' starter over two seasons. (ESPN)

FFToday's Take: The Jets season is circling the drain and with Ryan Fitzpatrick struggling with interceptions, the team is shifting to Smith who promptly through an interception on his one of his six attempts last week. Smith won't be a fantasy option. The Ravens-D makes for a nice streaming option in Week 7.


Injury Jets place Eric Decker on IR
Expected to have shoulder surgery
By: Mike Krueger | Wed Oct 12, 11:00 am

New York Jets
The Jets will likely be without one of their biggest offensive weapons the rest of the way. Wide receiver Eric Decker is being placed on injured reserve, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported Wednesday. Decker is expected to have shoulder surgery, which will likely result in his season being over. He tried to get back on the field but couldn't do it, Rapoport added. (NFL.com)

FFToday's Take: This is a big loss for Ryan Fitzpatrick and the Jets offense. Quincy Enunwa will continue to fill the No.2 wide receiver role with Decker out and expect Robby Anderson to see slight bump in snaps but he won't be a fantasy option. the Jets recently claimed Jeremy Butler off the Buccaneers practice squad.
