Ryan Fitzpatrick has brutal outing in big loss

Ryan Fitzpatrick completed 11-of-21 pass attempts for 89 yards and three interceptions in the Dolphins' Week 2 loss to the Patriots. He also rushed once for six yards.

Fantasy Impact

There will be lots of calls for Josh Rosen to start in Week 3, but it's not likely Fitzpatrick was a starting fantasy quarterback anyway. Fitzpatrick is one of the back-end options based on the context of his offense, and was only interesting in leagues that start more than one quarterback.

Ryan Fitzpatrick spotty in season opener

Ryan Fitzpatrick completed 14-of-29 pass attempts for 185 yards, one touchdown, and one interception in the Dolphins' season opener, a blowout loss to the Ravens. He also rushed once for eight yards.

Fantasy Impact

Fitzpatrick should be pardoned for struggling against a strong defense, but this will likely be the rule and not the exception. Fitzpatrick has very little around him on the offense, and the team will struggle overall to score points and move the ball. Fitzpatrick is at best a QB2 and is only interesting in leagues starting more than one quarterback.

Ryan Fitzpatrick named the starter in Miami

Veteran quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick has been named the Week 1 starter for the Miami Dolphins, according to a report from Adam Beasley on Twitter.

Fantasy Impact

Fitzpatrick had been in a competition with second-year quarterback Josh Rosen in Miami, but new head coach Brian Flores decided to go with the veteran over Rosen. Fitzpatrick threw for 2,366 yards, 17 touchdowns, and 12 interceptions in eight games for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers last season.

Ryan Fitzpatrick most likely to start Week 1

Dolphins Head Coach Brian Flores hasn't announced a starting quarterback for Week 1 against the Ravens. "Everything is leaning" towards Ryan Fitzpatrick starting, ESPN's Cameron Wolfe states.

Fantasy Impact

Fitzpatrick completed 12-of-18 passes for 126 yards and a touchdown in his last preseason contest. He'll face a tough task to keep his job if he gets the Week 1 start against the Ravens. It's unclear how long of a leash he will have and is a desperation play in any fantasy format Week 1.

Ryan Fitzpatrick solid in third preseason game

Ryan Fitzpatrick completed 12-of-18 pass attempts for 126 yards and a touchdown in the Dolphins' preseason win over the Jaguars.

Fantasy Impact

Fitzpatrick missed some throws in this game but was otherwise pretty solid, and he's clearly running ahead of Josh Rosen. Fitzpatrick will almost surely open the season under center, but with uncertainty about his number of starts, he's a QB3 options, which only matters for Superflex/2QB leagues.
