Jets | Ryan Fitzpatrick has offer from Jets

Fri, 27 May 2016 15:41:00 -0700

Free-agent QB Ryan Fitzpatrick (Jets) has received a three-year offer from the New York Jets that would pay him $12 million in the first season, according to sources.

Fantasy Tip: Fitzpatrick has limited options since it appears most teams have their starting quarterback, so the Jets appear to be his best option. He would be a low-end No. 1 fantasy quarterback if he signs with the Jets and would help the value of Brandon Marshall and Eric Decker.

Jets | No talks between Ryan Fitzpatrick, Jets

Wed, 25 May 2016 18:31:14 -0700

Free-agent QB Ryan Fitzpatrick (Jets) has not had contract talks with the New York Jets over the last few weeks, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: The Jets still appear to be the leading candidate to sign Fitzpatrick, but the two sides are still far apart in terms of money. Fitzpatrick would be a low-end No. 1 in deeper leagues if he re-signs and would help the fantasy value of Brandon Marshall and Eric Decker.

Jets | Coach hopeful Ryan Fitzpatrick is re-signed

Wed, 25 May 2016 11:29:28 -0700

New York Jets head coach Todd Bowles said he's "hopeful" that QB Ryan Fitzpatrick is re-signed by training camp. However, Bowles didn't say he's confident.

Fantasy Tip: Fitzpatrick and the Jets are still far apart in negotiations for a new deal, and it's anyone's guess at this point as to whether something actually gets done. It's in Fitz's best interests to return to New York, where he had a great year with Brandon Marshall and Eric Decker at his disposal. If Fitzpatrick returns, he can be a fringe QB1 based on matchups, but he'd be best drafted as a QB2.

Jets | Ryan Fitzpatrick wants to return

Mon, 23 May 2016 10:27:45 -0700

Updating a previous report, free-agent QB Ryan Fitzpatrick (Jets) wants to re-sign with the New York Jets. "I would like to be back," Fitzpatrick said. He's been in a three-month contract stalemate with the Jets.

Fantasy Tip: Both sides still have a large gap in money, but there is still time for an agreement to be reached before training camp. Fitz enjoyed a renaissance season with the Jets in 2015 and his highest fantasy value is in green and white. He developed excellent chemistry with both Brandon Marshall and Eric Decker and would be a fringe fantasy starter based on matchups if he returns.

NFL | Ryan Fitzpatrick not retiring

Mon, 23 May 2016 09:48:24 -0700

Free-agent QB Ryan Fitzpatrick (Jets) dispelled rumors that he was considering retirement Monday, May 23. "I'm playing," Fitzpatrick said. "I'm playing football next year."

Fantasy Tip: The Jets and Fitz remain in a stalemate in terms of re-signing a contract. There remains a chance that the two sides can find common ground in order to get Fitzpatrick signed before training camp begins. Fitz had a revival last year with Gang Green, and the best spot for his fantasy value would be to remain in New York. If he re-signs, he's a fringe fantasy starter as a low-end QB1.

Jets | Ryan Fitzpatrick deadline soon?

Thu, 19 May 2016 13:31:28 -0700

The deadline for free-agent QB Ryan Fitzpatrick (Jets) could be sooner than expected. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport posits that the first legitimate deadline is when the New York Jets' organized team activities start Tuesday, May 24.

Fantasy Tip: Next Tuesday isn't the final date Fitzpatrick can re-sign, but it may be the first real important date. The standoff may very well last past then, possibly up until or past training camp. If Fitzpatrick does eventually re-sign, he'll immediately enter the low-end QB1 conversation.

Jets | Teammate expects Ryan Fitzpatrick back

Tue, 17 May 2016 18:55:12 -0700

Free-agent QB Ryan Fitzpatrick (Jets) is not close to a contract agreement with the New York Jets, but Jets WR Eric Decker said he expects Fitzpatrick to be the starting quarterback in the first regular season game.

Fantasy Tip: The Jets are still interested in re-signing Fitzpatrick but are not willing to pay him what he is asking for at this point. Owners should keep an eye on the situation because Fitzpatrick would be a low-end No. 1 quarterback in some deeper leagues and would help the fantasy value of Decker and Brandon Marshall.

Jets | Eric Decker talks Ryan Fitzpatrick

Tue, 17 May 2016 16:58:43 -0700

New York Jets WR Eric Decker said the Jets need to be prepared to play without free-agent QB Ryan Fitzpatrick (Jets). Decker does want New York to re-sign the veteran quarterback, but he's focused on the football team as a whole. "All I can say is we have to move on without him right now because they are stuck where they are with the business decision," Decker said. "But, again, we have a job to do and that's to be the best football team, field the best football team, of who we have in the locker room right now."

Fantasy Tip: Decker and the offense would be better off with Fitzpatrick back, but Decker is right. For now, Geno Smith will start at quarterback for the Jets, which would somewhat lessen the fantasy value and his cohorts like Brandon Marshall. That being said, Decker and Marshall are still in WR2 and WR1 territory, respectively, with Marshall having more value in PPR leagues.

NFL | Ryan Fitzpatrick could affect draft

Wed, 11 May 2016 16:31:53 -0700

If free-agent QB Ryan Fitzpatrick (Jets) is signed Thursday, May 12, or onward by a prospective team, then he will not count against that team's compensatory draft picks.

Fantasy Tip: As Rich Cimini noted, it's unlikely that this little advantage would drive a team to sign Fitzpatrick if he hasn't been signed already. It could still be some time before Fitzpatrick is signed or re-signed. If he returns to the Jets, then he has low-end QB1 potential again.

Jets | No urgency with Ryan Fitzpatrick

Tue, 10 May 2016 11:56:08 -0700

Free-agent QB Ryan Fitzpatrick's (Jets) status remains in limbo with the New York Jets. Owner Woody Johnson said there's no urgency to re-sign Fitzpatrick at this point with training camp still two months away.

Fantasy Tip: A borderline QB1 last season remains without a team. If Fitzpatrick is not re-signed then Geno Smith would likely start for the Jets, at least to begin the season. As has been proven in previous years, though, Smith is not a reliable fantasy option.
