Ryan Fitzpatrick leads Dolphins to win over Patriots

Ryan Fitzpatrick completed 28-of-41 pass attempts for 320 yards and one touchdown in the Dolphins' Week 17 win over the Patriots. Fitzpatrick also rushed five times for 15 yards and a touchdown.

Fantasy Impact

Fitzpatrick was sharp in this game almost the entire contest, picking on shutdown cornerback Stephon Gilmore with ease. Fitzpatrick caps off an impressive season with one of his most impressive performances, given the tough matchup. The Dolphins will most likely be completely revamped heading into 2020, and while Fitzpatrick is under contract through the end of 2020, there is only $1.5M of dead cap. If the Dolphins draft a quarterback early, it's possible Fitzpatrick either serves as the backup or gets cut. Fitzpatrick's fantasy outlook for 2020 is murky at best.

Ryan Fitzpatrick has huge game in wild win

Ryan Fitzpatrick completed 31-of-52 pass attempts for 419 yards, four touchdowns, and one interception in the Dolphins' Week 16 overtime win over the Bengals. Fitzpatrick rushed five times for nine yards, including three kneel-downs for negative five yards.

Fantasy Impact

Fitzpatrick has been impressive for most of this season given the team situation and talent around him, and will win some fantasy championships with this big performance. Fitzpatrick has taken advantage of some of his good matchups this season, but will be tough to use in Week 17 against the Patriots for any leagues still in play.

Ryan Fitzpatrick delivers solid outing against Giants

Ryan Fitzpatrick completed 23-of-41 pass attempts for 279 yards and two touchdowns in the Dolphins' Week 15 loss to the Giants. Fitzpatrick rushed four times for 33 yards and fumbled once.

Fantasy Impact

FitzMagic has been wheeling and dealing all year as if he's a man with nothing to lose. He continued his "DGAF" play in this contest, which worked out well for fantasy purposes despite being less ideal for winning football games, as the Dolphins lost to the two-win Giants. Fitzpatrick should continue dealing next week in a good matchup against the Bengals.

Ryan Fitzpatrick held in check by Jets

Ryan Fitzpatrick completed 21-of-37 pass attempts for 245 yards and one interception in the Dolphins' Week 14 loss to the Jets. Fitzpatrick rushed eight times for 65 yards.

Fantasy Impact

Fitzpatrick has shown complete fearlessness as the season has worn on, which is fine for fantasy purposes, as he's willing to shoot for big plays. However, when those don't connect, it results in an unexciting day like this, and sometimes in a handful of interceptions. That game has felt on the horizon for a while now, but with matchups against the Giants and Bengals upcoming, maybe it won't.

Ryan Fitzpatrick has big day in winning effort

Ryan Fitzpatrick completed 27-of-39 pass attempts for 365 yards, three touchdowns, one interception, and one two-point conversion in the Dolphins' Week 13 win over the Eagles. Fitzpatrick rushed three times for two yards.

Fantasy Impact

It was a huge day for Fitzpatrick in a plus matchup, which is good news for owners in 2QB or Superflex leagues. Fitzpatrick could have even had another touchdown but for a trick play involved a passing touchdown by the punter. Going forward, Fitzpatrick is definitely startable in good matchups as a QB2 with upside, thanks in large part to the ascendance of DeVante Parker as a legitimate alpha wide receiver. Next week against the Jets is a great spot for FitzMagic to shine.
