Summary

Nobody fails upward quite like Ryan Fitzpatrick, who manages to find a starting job at every place he signs. He's never great, but he often gets the job done for a stretch before become Quarterback Santa Claus and handing out footballs like it's Christmas. He can win the starting job in Miami again, if he can beat out Josh Rosen, who only showed flashes off and on last season on an Arizona team that was not much help to him. Fitzpatrick is a classic QB gunslinger, and never met a tight throw he didn't want to try. Sometimes it works out, while other times it turns into a five interception affair. He's a guy who might fill in for a week or two on your fantasy team, but if you run him out there too long, it's eventually going to burn you. (May 29)

Latest News

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.

Our 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.

Our 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.

Our 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.
