He's now started and finished five games this season, and has totaled at least 400 yards passing in four of them. It didn't seem to matter much against the Redskins, as his 400 yards passing led to just three points on offense because he was intercepted in the end zone and then fumbled on the goal-line. Dirk Koetter named him the starter on Monday, so he didn't waver about who to play this week. Koetter also took over play-calling duties from offensive coordinator Todd Monken, which makes little sense because the offensive production hasn't been the problem with the team. Against the Giants, it may be both Koetter's and Fitzpatrick's final stand if they cannot put points on the board. Despite being one of the favorites for the No. 1 overall pick, the Giants secondary has held 6-of-9 quarterbacks to 250 yards or less, and has allowed multiple passing touchdowns just three times. They have allowed the second-most rushing yards (208) to quarterbacks this year, and Fitzpatrick has quietly had four games with 23-plus rushing yards. The reason to trust Fitzpatrick in this matchup is because the Giants don't have the talent at cornerback necessary to cover the Bucs receivers, as they're currently starting Janoris Jenkins (hasn't been good), undrafted rookie Grant Haley, and career 111.6 QB Rating in-coverage B.W. Webb. Fitzpatrick is in the low-end QB1 conversation, though we'll also want to pay attention to the weather conditions given the time of year.

Ryan Fitzpatrick named starter for Week 11

Dirk Koetter has named Ryan Fitzpatrick the Bucs' starter for their Week 11 game against the Giants.

Fantasy Impact

Fitzpatrick passed for plenty of yards on Sunday against the Redskins, but did not have a productive fantasy day. He remains a borderline starter, particularly against a Giants team that is middle of the road against opposing quarterbacks.
