Ryan Fitzpatrick benched in Week 4 loss

Buccaneers QB Ryan Fitzpatrick was benched in Sunday's Week 4 loss to the Bears.

Fantasy Impact

Fitzpatrick completed 9-of-18 passes for 126 yards and an interception in the first half of Sunday's blowout loss to the Bears. Ultimately replaced by a returning Jameis Winston at the start of the third quarter, the Fitzmagic era in Tampa Bay is all but over despite an NFL record three straight games with at least 400 yards passing to open the season. It was fun while it lasted wasn't it?

Ryan Fitzpatrick expected to draw Week 4 start

ESPN's Adam Schefter is reporting the Buccaneers are expected to start QB Ryan Fitzpatrick in Week 4.

Fantasy Impact

The presumed outcome, Fitzpatrick was the only choice Tampa Bay head coach Dirk Koetter could make even with Jameis Winston returning from his suspension. Though Fitzpatrick is on record-pace -- he's the first player to throw for at least 400 yards in three consecutive games -- his magical season could come to a screeching halt facing a stout Bears defense in Chicago. Though he is a risky fantasy play for Week 4, Fitzpatrick would be difficult to bench if you have a signal caller on a bye or succumbed to injury.

Ryan Fitzpatrick expected to start Week 4

The Buccaneers have yet to announce their starting quarterback against the Bears, but all signs point to it continuing to be Ryan Fitzpatrick.

Fantasy Impact

This is expected after Fitzpatrick's record-setting start to the new season. Fitzpatrick did show his turnover tendencies Week 3 against the Steelers, but he also put up 27 points and nearly lead the team back to their third straight victory. It's feasible that Fitzpatrick keeps the starting job for the remainder of the season.

Ryan Fitzpatrick has a record-setting night in Week 3 loss

Buccaneers QB Ryan Fitzpatrick completed 30-of-50 passes for 411 yards, three touchdowns and three interceptions in Monday night's Week 3 loss to the Steelers.

Fantasy Impact

Fitzpatrick, whose "Fitzmagic" reignited at the start of the 2018 season, has likely played himself into the starting job for when Jameis Winston returns from his suspension. Not only did he become the first quarterback in league history to throw for at least 400 yards in three consecutive games, but he also went toe-to-toe with a high-octane Steelers offense, nearly leading Tampa Bay from a come from behind win on Monday Night Football. In Week 4 the Buccaneers will have the Bears. Who the starting quarterback will remain a mystery, for now.

Ryan Fitzpatrick leads Buccaneers to Week 2 win

Buccaneers QB Ryan Fitzpatrick completed 27-of-33 passes for 402 yards, four touchdowns and one interception in Sunday's Week 2 win over the Eagles.

Fantasy Impact

For the second straight week to open the 2018 season, Fitzpatrick was magnificent. Opening his day with a monster bomb to DeSean Jackson, his third in two games, Fitzpatrick is playing himself into the long-term starter in Tampa Bay. Jameis Winston's immediate job is in jeopardy.
