Fitz Magic waved his wand, said the magic words "Abra Cadabra" and disappeared from South Beach. He goes to the nation's capital trying to inject some Magic into an offense with some interesting pieces. The line is still a work in progress, but the biggest concern is Washington's defense. They're so talented they might not need to pass. And if that's the case it means more running plays than I'd like in the 4th Qtr. The good news is Terry McLaurin looks like the real deal. The two should still provide some magic for fantasy owners.Carr has some weapons in Darren Waller and Henry Ruggs, but the offensive line lost some keys cogs this past offseason. Carr's lack of mobility caps his upside. The combination of those two could lead to a lot of sacks. He's okay, but I'm hoping for better at QB.
Joe Pisapia

The bearded one can still sling the rock. Last season, Ryan Fitzpatrick averaged 8.3 yards per attempt and got the Dolphins off to a solid start before being replaced by the "QB of the Future," Tua Tagovailoa. Despite a forgettable Week 1 performance, Fitzpatrick turned in 5 straight 21+ point performances before getting the hook in a blowout against the Jets in Week 6. You can't blame the Dolphins, but the move may have indeed cost them the playoffs in 2020. Now, Fitzmagic gets another opportunity to play in his first playoff game, but for the Washington Football Team. He inherits a pretty solid complement of weapons across the board and some great matchups against some soft NFC East defenses. Fitz will be an excellent streaming QB in 2021 and a decent Superflex starter most weeks. Officially, Washington says he's "competing" for the starting job, but it's his. Despite imperfections, Washington had upgraded year over year from a genuinely awful quarterback carousel in 2020.Very quietly, Derek Carr finished as QB13 last season. This was due to him playing in all 16 games, which many QBs did not in 2020. Carr did throw for his 3rd straight 4k yard season, but I have significant concerns about the offensive line turnover for the Raiders. At 30, Derek Carr is a prototypical league-average quarterback, hence the 8-8 record of the Raiders. I would love him as my 3rd QB in Superflex, but you could do worse as your QB2. Although Carr did make some statistical strides, it's hard to get excited about him in fantasy terms.

This might seem weird to some, but Fitzpatrick has produced QB1-type numbers in 18-of-37 games over the last four years (includes seven games where he threw 18 or less passes). Do you know how many quarterbacks posted QB1-type numbers in better than 50 percent of their games in 2020? 10 of them. That's it. Under Scott Turner, the Panthers threw the ball 633 times with Cam Newton, Kyle Allen, and Will Grier in 2019. Then, in 2020, Washington threw the ball 599 times with Dwayne Haskins, Alex Smith, and Kyle Allen.The article I write every year titled, "Boom, Bust, and Everything In Between," highlights the both the consistency a player offers, as well as his upside. Carr has no upside. Over the last two years under Jon Gruden, Carr has played 32 games. In those games, he's delivered QB1-type performances just 14 times (43.8 percent), and a "boom" performance just one time (3.1 percent). I'd rather take shots on the rookie quarterbacks who might not start out of the gate, as Carr certainly wouldn't be your QB1.

Fitzmagic is fun but fleeting. Is this the year he starts all 17 games? If it is, he will be fantasy relevant from beginning to end.

In love w/ Fitzmagic and his fit in WASH. He'll go undrafted and churn out Top-15 numbers.
