As it turns out, threatening to bench Fitzpatrick might light a fire under him. After a semi-weak performance against a horrendous Seahawks defense, Fitzpatrick dismantled the 49ers defense for 350 yards and three touchdowns on just 28 pass attempts. He was on fire; that's the simplest way to put it. Now going back to play the Jets on his revenge tour (that includes half the teams in the league), is Fitzgerald back on the streaming radar? In two games against Gregg Williams' scheme last year (which had more talent on the defense), Fitzgerald was Jekyll and Hyde, as he posted 288 yards and three touchdowns in their Week 9 matchup, but then just 245 yards and no touchdowns in the second game. The Jets have faced just 33.2 pass attempts per game, as they've struggled to put points on the board, meaning teams haven't had to throw the ball a whole lot. When quarterbacks have dropped back, they've completed a massive 72.3 percent of passes for 8.25 yards per attempt, which both rank as top-five marks in the league. Even Kyler Murray, who came into the game with a career average of just 6.77 yards per attempt to throw for 380 yards on 37 pass attempts, which amounts to 10.27 yards per attempt. There aren't a whole lot of sure things when streaming quarterbacks, as there's a reason those options are unowned, but Fitzpatrick has posted top-12 quarterback numbers in four straight games. He should be considered a high-end QB2 this week.

Ryan Fitzpatrick shocked by Dolphins' decision to bench him

Ryan Fitzpatrick said it "broke his heart" to hear he was being demoted and that he was "shocked" when coach Brian Flores told him the news.

Fantasy Impact

The fact that Miami made the decision despite Fitzpatrick playing well and leading the team to a 3-3 record shows that it was their plan all along. Fitzpatrick added that Miami was the first place other than Buffalo where it felt like it was his team. It's sad to hear Fitzpatrick hurting as he is one of the most well liked people in football. It's possible that the Dolphins could listen to trade offers for Fitzpatrick prior to the November 3rd deadline.
