  Dolphins | Three touchdowns for Ryan Fitzpatrick    Sun Nov 3, 06:24 PM

Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Fitzpatrick went 24-for-36 for 288 yards and three touchdowns against the New York Jets in Week 9.

Footballguys view: This team wants to win with Fitzpatrick as their leader despite the odds that have been stacked against them. They'll be a game unit against a Colts team that is unlikely to blow them out of the water next week, so Fitzpatrick is establishing himself as a streaming option.

  Dolphins | Ryan Fitzpatrick still the starter    Wed Oct 30, 12:30 PM

Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Fitzpatrick will remain the starting quarterback, according to head coach Brian Flores.

Footballguys view: The Dolphins aren't winning but they're looking for their best chance to get in the 'W' side of the column. Fitzpatrick gives the team 'the best chance to win,' Flores said.

Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Fitzpatrick went 23-for-35 for 282 yards, one touchdown and one interception against the Buffalo Bills in Week 7. He also rushed for 13 yards and one touchdown on six carries during the game.

Footballguys view: Fitzpatrick made two Dolphins wide receivers fantasy relevant against a very tough defense and kept Miami in the game for as long as he could. He'll face a ferocious and rested Steelers defense next week and was not the reason Miami lost.

  Dolphins | Ryan Fitzpatrick to start    Wed Oct 16, 01:00 PM

Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Fitzpatrick will start in Week 7 against the Buffalo Bills.

Footballguys view: Fitzpatrick gets to play one of his (many) former teams on Sunday. The Dolphins might have a little more punch with the veteran in at quarterback but the Bills defense is tough so don't expect too much with this change.

  Dolphins | Ryan Fitzpatrick posts 132 yards, TD    Sun Oct 13, 04:47 PM

Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Fitzpatrick completed 12-of-18 passes for 132 yards, one touchdown and no interceptions off the bench in Week 6 against the Washington Redskins.

Footballguys view: Fitzpatrick almost did enough to come back and win and ruin the #1 draft pick for the Dolphins. If the Week 7 starter is based on performance, Fitzpatrick should be in against his old Buffalo team.

  Dolphins | Ryan Fitzpatrick to get Week 3 nod    Mon Sep 16, 03:06 PM

Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Fitzpatrick will get the start for Week 3 versus the Dallas Cowboys, although head coach Brian Flores made it clear to the media Monday, Sept. 16, that the team is 'evaluating all positions.'

Footballguys view: Fitzpatrick was pulled from the game against the Patriots in Week 2. That's a real possibility every week, so we could see Josh Rosen against the Cowboys even if Fitzpatrick gets the starting nod.

  Dolphins | Ryan Fitzpatrick to start Week 1    Thu Aug 29, 11:09 PM

Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Fitzpatrick will start against the Baltimore Ravens in Week 1, according to head coach Brian Flores.

Footballguys view: This makes the Ravens defense an even better play. Fitzpatrick should pray that the Dolphins don't trade their best offensive lineman, Laremy Tunsil, before the season begins.

  Dolphins | Ryan Fitzpatrick appears on track for QB job    Thu Aug 29, 07:12 PM

Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Fitzpatrick appears to be the leading candidate for the starting quarterback job, in the opinion of ESPN.com's Cameron Wolfe.

Footballguys view: That's the way things have been trending for some time. Fitzpatrick could begin the season as the starter but eventually the team might want to see 2018 first-round pick (for the Cardinals) Josh Rosen. We'll see how this shakes out and how long Fitzpatrick can hang onto the starting job.

  Dolphins | Miami not ready to name starting QB    Sun Aug 25, 03:21 PM

Miami Dolphins QBs Ryan Fitzpatrick and Josh Rosen have been competing for the starting job during the preseason, and head coach Brian Flores said he is still not ready to name a starter at the position. Flores indicated both quarterbacks may play in the final preseason game.

Footballguys view: This reflects on Rosen's play since a first week that saw Fitzpatrick emerge as the clear starter as much as it does Fitzpatrick's. Fitzpatrick might be better for the downfield receivers and Rosen the short-range receivers, but both will struggle behind one of the league's worst offensive lines.

  Dolphins | Ryan Fitzpatrick not a lock to start    Mon Aug 19, 12:32 PM

Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Fitzpatrick is not cemented as the team's starter, despite him starting the third preseason game, according to head coach Brian Flores.

Footballguys view: That's what Flores has to say, but all signs point towards Fitzpatrick beginning the season as the starter. If (when?) he struggles, the team could turn things over to 2018 first-round pick Josh Rosen.

  Dolphins | Ryan Fitzpatrick likely to start next game    Sat Aug 17, 01:33 PM

Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Fitzpatrick likely will be the starting quarterback for the third preseason game, according to head coach Brian Flores.

Footballguys view: That's a good sign that Fitzpatrick will begin the regular season as the starter. Nothing is set in stone of course, but the competition between Fitzpatrick and Josh Rosen will continue for another week or so.

  Dolphins | Another start for Ryan Fitzpatrick?    Tue Aug 13, 12:53 PM

Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Fitzpatrick could start a second straight preseason game Friday, Aug. 16, when the Dolphins visit the Buccaneers, head coach Brian Flores said Tuesday, Aug. 13.

Footballguys view: Fitzpatrick is ahead of Josh Rosen in the competition for the starting job with the Dolphins. We have a feeling no matter who begins the season as the starter, both quarterbacks should play at some point in the 2019 season.

  Dolphins | Ryan Fitzpatrick working with ones    Tue Aug 6, 09:28 AM

Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Fitzpatrick will likely play with the first-team offense Thursday, Aug. 8, in the first preseason game, according to head coach Brian Flores. QB Josh Rosen is slated for the second-team, but Flores said that could change.

Footballguys view: This quarterback battle is wide open and trending towards Rosen, but preseason games will decide it. Just as important as the identity of the winner is noting which receiver have the best chemistry with the winner.

  Dolphins | Ryan Fitzpatrick has early edge    Tue Jul 30, 01:52 PM

Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Fitzpatrick has the early edge over Josh Rosen in the battle to start at quarterback, head coach Brian Flores said Tuesday, July 30. 'It's pretty clear to me that Ryan Fitzpatrick is leading the way,' Flores said. 'He's done that in a lot of areas, from leadership to production on the field to the meeting rooms to the walk-throughs. This is an ongoing competition, but right now he's leading the way.'

Footballguys view: Fitzpatrick can support multiple fantasy relevant receivers with his aggressive approach, so this is good news for Kenny Stills, Albert Wilson, and DeVante Parker. Fitzpatrick could even be a viable DFS GPP play in the right matchup.

  Dolphins | Ryan Fitzpatrick in line to start?    Sat Jul 6, 03:17 PM

Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Fitzpatrick showed impressive leadership skills during offseason workouts and was clearly the better quarterback during practice, according to one Dolphins player.

Footballguys view: No surprise here. Fitzpatrick has much more experience than second-year pro Josh Rosen. We think Fitzpatrick begins the season as the starter, but just like it always happens with him, he could struggle and get pulled later in the season.

  Dolphins | Man coverage no match for Ryan Fitzpatrick     Thu Jul 4, 02:38 PM

Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Fitzpatrick - then with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers - recorded a passer rating of 108.3 against man coverage in 2018 - the second-best mark in the league, according to Pro Football Focus.

Footballguys view: Fitzpatrick has had positive flashes in nearly every stop of his pro career. Then, his game will go in the tank. He's the best quarterback option for the Dolphins right now and should open the season as the starter. If (when?) he struggles, the Dolphins could give the reins over to second-year pro (and former first-round pick) Josh Rosen.

  Dolphins | Ryan Fitzpatrick has early lead in QB derby?    Fri May 24, 03:22 PM

Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Fitzpatrick has been 'the best of the quarterbacks' in organized team activities so far, according to an unidentified player who spoke to Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald recently. However, Josh Rosen has also reportedly 'played well.'

Footballguys view: Fitzpatrick is the seasoned veteran with the dad bod...of course he should be the early leader. We also know the wily veteran is wildly inconsistent, so Rosen is going to start at some point this season even if Fitzpatrick wins the starting job in training camp.

Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Fitzpatrick took reps with the first-team offense during OTAs Tuesday, May 14.

Footballguys view: Zero surprise here. Fitzpatrick is the seasoned veteran while his main competition, Josh Rosen, is a second-year player coming from another system. Rosen should get the chance to start at some point in 2019. We'll see if and how long Fitzpatrick can hold him off from the top spot on the depth chart.

  Dolphins | Coach high on Ryan Fitzpatrick    Sun Mar 31, 12:07 PM

Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Fitzpatrick has a big believer in head coach Brian Flores. 'He brings leadership, he brings intelligence, he brings toughness,' Flores recently told SiriusXM NFL Radio. 'We've had a couple really good talks. Obviously, I coached against him (when Flores was a defensive assistant with the New England Patriots) and I just think he's a really good player. I'm looking forward to watching him play. I think his best days are ahead.'

Footballguys view: Flores is already good at this coach-speak thing. Fitzpatrick's best days are not ahead of him and he's not a great option as a starter for the Dolphins...but he might be what they go with all season in 2019. The team might be better off waiting for a much better QB class in 2020.

  Dolphins | Ryan Fitzpatrick signs with Miami    Sun Mar 17, 02:55 PM

Free-agent QB Ryan Fitzpatrick (Buccaneers) on Sunday, March 17, signed with the Miami Dolphins. Terms of the deal were not immediately available.

Footballguys view: The tanking is official! The Dolphins are looking for the 2020 NFL draft to find their franchise quarterback as that's a much better class than the one coming into the pros this year. Fitzpatrick is the perfect placeholder quarterback for the Dolphins as their franchise quarterback of the future is not yet on the roster.

  Buccaneers | Ryan Fitzpatrick not expected back    Wed Feb 27, 01:01 AM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Ryan Fitzpatrick is unlikely to return to the team in 2019 because of his success last season, according to Pewter Report's Scott Reynolds, who adds new head coach Bruce Arians doesn't want Jameis Winston 'looking over his shoulder. Reynolds also reports Arians hopes to avoid 'any potential division in the locker room' as the franchise attempts to find out if Winston is worthy of a long-term contract extension.

Footballguys view: Arians is going to give Winston an opportunity to win a long-term contract with the Bucs. Winston is playing on his fifth-year option in 2019, and apparently Arians doesn't feel like having Fitzpatrick around as a potential distraction.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston replaced QB Ryan Fitzpatrick in the Week 11 game against the New York Giants and completed 12 of his 16 passes for 199 yards, two touchdowns and an interception in a 38-35 loss.

Footballguys view: "Tampa Quarterback" had another strong game, and it should be Winston's job going into a matchup against the 49ers. With OJ Howard banged up, Cameron Brate is better situated to rekindle the chemistry between the two of them.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Ryan Fitzpatrick was benched in the third quarter of the Week 11 game Sunday, Nov. 18, after throwing his third interception of the contest. He was replaced by Jameis Winston.

Footballguys view: Fitzmagic VII the sequel is over. The Bucs have had to bench two different quarterbacks this year. Maybe we'll see Ryan Griffin before the end of the season. Winston will be a hot waiver wire pickup this week, but his leash is also short.

  Buccaneers | Ryan Fitzpatrick to start again in Week 11    Mon Nov 12, 02:37 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Ryan Fitzpatrick will remain the starting quarterback in Week 11, according to head coach Dirk Koetter.

Footballguys view: This decision may come down to one thing; money. The Buccaneers don't want to risk an injury to Jameis Winston if he's back in the starting lineup. His 2019 fifth-year option is guaranteed only for injury, so they'd be on the hook for around $20 million if Winston was banged up heading into next year. We expect Fitzpatrick to remain the starter unless he's absolutely awful.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Ryan Fitzpatrick completed 24-of-40 passes for 243 yards, four touchdowns and two interceptions in Week 9 against the Carolina Panthers. He also ran for 23 yards.

Footballguys view: Fitzpatrick started slow, but eventually got the Bucs within a score in the second half. There's no reason he would lose his job going into a matchup against a Washington defense that didn't look nearly as good as its ranking today against Atlanta.

  Buccaneers | Ryan Fitzpatrick back under center    Mon Oct 29, 02:33 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Ryan Fitzpatrick has been named the starting quarterback Monday, Oct. 29.

Footballguys view: Fitzpatrick can go off in any given game, and that's why he's a QB1 consideration for Fantasy GMs. He fits what the Bucs want to do better than Jameis Winston and certainly has stronger chemistry with DeSean Jackson. Fitzpatrick is as inconsistent as the day is long, so this 'magic' ride might not last but he's back as the starter for now. Bucs head coach Dirk Koetter says this team is taking it 'week-by-week' with the quarterback.

  Buccaneers | Ryan Fitzpatrick takes over in Week 8    Sun Oct 28, 06:27 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Ryan Fitzpatrick came off the bench for the mistake-prone QB Jameis Winston, completing 11-of-15 passes for 194 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions in Week 8 against the Cincinnati Bengals.

Footballguys view: Fitzpatrick may or may not start against the Panthers next week, but it feels inevitable that he will start at some point. He has shown that he can put up top-end QB1 numbers, so he should be picked up in most leagues while we wait for this to resolve itself.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston will replace Ryan Fitzpatrick and start at quarterback in Week 6 versus the Atlanta Falcons following the team's Week 5 bye, according to head coach Dirk Koetter.

Footballguys view: Fitzmagic is over and the team goes back to Winston. His future with the team is up in the air, and he could turn things around with strong performances from here on out. We know he's going to use WR Mike Evans and Winston loves throwing to TE Cameron Brate. However, he did have a problem connecting with WR DeSean Jackson last year. We'll see if Winston learned anything from the way Fitzpatrick was able to connect with the speedy veteran.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Ryan Fitzpatrick went 9-for-18 for 126 yards and one interception against the Chicago Bears in Week 4 before he was benched for QB Jameis Winston.

Footballguys view: Fitzmagic the 2018 version is over, but we and the record books will always remember his first three starts this year. He'll go back to being a back up, but this might not be the last chapter of a career that refuses to go quietly.
