Jets | Long delay in Ryan Fitzpatrick talks

Tue, 19 Jul 2016 17:09:29 -0700

Free-agent QB Ryan Fitzpatrick (Jets) and the New York Jets have not discussed a new contract in over a month, according to ESPN.com's Jeremy Fowler.

Fantasy Tip: One would think Fitzapatrick and the Jets will grind out a deal sometime in the near future, and ideally before training camp. Fitz would be their best option at quarterback and have the most fantasy value. Geno Smith, in the meantime, is easily in the QB2 conversation.

Jets | Ryan Fitzpatrick situation could linger

Mon, 18 Jul 2016 16:37:08 -0700

It looks as though the New York Jets may wait to view the practice repetitions of QB Geno Smith in training camp before there is more movement in talks with free-agent QB Ryan Fitzpatrick (Jets), according to sources.

Fantasy Tip: The stalemate continues. It's probably in the best interests of both parties to have a reunion, but both sides are being stubborn. If Fitz doesn't return, Brandon Marshall and Eric Decker will surely suffer. If the QB does return, he's a high-end fantasy backup, at best. Stay tuned.

Jets | Ryan Fitzpatrick, Jets not a given

Mon, 18 Jul 2016 08:00:55 -0700

Free-agent QB Ryan Fitzpatrick (Jets) re-signing with the New York Jets by the start of training camp, or shortly after, isn't a sure thing. The Jets have been offering a three-year, $24 million deal with $12 million in the first year.

Fantasy Tip: A deal would make a lot of sense for both sides, and it could just be a game of chess right now. Fitzpatrick threw for 3,905 yards and 31 touchdowns last season, but he turns 34 in November. It's tough to take him as anything more than a great QB2 in fantasy.

Jets | Ryan Fitzpatrick to sign soon?

Sat, 16 Jul 2016 12:26:55 -0700

Free-agent QB Ryan Fitzpatrick (Jets) and the New York Jets should have more flexibility in future negotiations because the signing of DE Muhammad Wilkerson brings the possibility of a one-year deal. New York had just $3.4 million in salary cap space before the Wilkerson deal. That will now increase by a few million because the Jets no longer have to carry Wilkerson's $15.7 million franchise tag.

Fantasy Tip: Fitzpatrick is still the best option for the Jets at quarterback, and perhaps the Wilkerson deal can help push the envelope. If the envelope is eventually sealed with a Fitzpatrick deal inside, he'll be worth a look as a high-end QB1 to low-end QB2.

Jets | Ryan Fitzpatrick remains at impasse

Tue, 12 Jul 2016 06:19:53 -0700

Free-agent QB Ryan Fitzpatrick (Jets) has experienced no progress in contract talks with the New York Jets with just over two weeks away. Time may be running out since training camp felt like a deadline to get a deal done.

Fantasy Tip: Fitzpatrick had a breakout year at 32 last season, but questions linger if he can repeat it. He's best drafted as a QB2.

Jets | New York won't wait forever on QB

Wed, 15 Jun 2016 15:24:16 -0700

Free-agent QB Ryan Fitzpatrick's (Jets) impasse with the New York Jets does have an expiration date, according to head coach Todd Bowles. Bowles said the Jets will rely on QB Geno Smith to be their starter if Fitzpatrick's contract is not worked out by a certain time. Bowles didn't say when exactly that time would be, but he indicated that it wouldn't be preseason. Fitzpatrick would start if/when he does re-sign, though.

Fantasy Tip: Fitzpatrick would be the only Jets quarterback with any meaningful fantasy value if he does return. Smith is a career fantasy backup, while Fitzpatrick is in low-end QB1 to high-end QB2 territory.

Jets | No deadline for Ryan Fitzpatrick

Tue, 14 Jun 2016 15:39:31 -0700

Free-agent QB Ryan Fitzpatrick (Jets) and the New York Jets do not have a "drop-dead deadline" to get a deal done, according to head coach Todd Bowles. It was reported Monday, June 13, that there had been no progress in contract talks with Fitzpatrick.

Fantasy Tip: The waiting game will appear to continue for the foreseeable future. Fitzpatrick would enter the high-end QB2 conversation if he is re-signed. Geno Smith is easily a backup fantasy quarterback.

Jets | No progress in Ryan Fitzpatrick talks

Mon, 13 Jun 2016 05:42:10 -0700

Free-agent QB Ryan Fitzpatrick (Jets) hasn't made progress on contract talks with the New York Jets, as of Monday, June 13. It's unknown if something will get done before training camp.

Fantasy Tip: Fitzpatrick emerged as a low-end QB1 last season. If he re-signs with the Jets can he duplicate that? He's a safer QB2, but he still has to sign with a team as well.

Jets | Ryan Fitzpatrick makes counteroffer

Fri, 03 Jun 2016 08:11:39 -0700

Free-agent QB Ryan Fitzpatrick (Jets) let the New York Jets know that he'd be willing to re-sign for one year and $12 million guaranteed. The Jets are offering the same amount as part of a front-loaded three-year, $24 million deal. However, the Jets are being stubborn and aren't willing to indicate they would be willing to sign him for just one year. There haven't been negotiations between the sides for months.

Fantasy Tip: This represents progress, even if the two sides aren't currently engaging each other. It's up to the Jets now, who clearly don't want to pay Fitz much past the 2016 season. It seems inevitable that he'll return to Gang Green, but anything can still happen. The Amish Rifle's highest fantasy value will come with the Jets, but he's still safest as a high-end fantasy backup.
