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.

Jets | Ryan Fitzpatrick stance could escalate

Thu, 02 Jun 2016 16:17:42 -0700

Free-agent QB Ryan Fitzpatrick's (Jets) impasse with the New York Jets could be more heavily addressed in the coming weeks, according to ESPNNewYork.com's Rich Cimini. Head coach Todd Bowles said the Jets could wait until training camp in late July, but Cimini believes New York will want to get something done before that.

Furthermore, if Los Angeles Rams QB Nick Foles is released, then it could prompt the Jets to force the issue with their prodigal quarterback, as Foles could be deemed a last-chance option for a veteran signal-caller.

Fantasy Tip: This has been one of the more intriguing situations that have unfolded this offseason. It still seems unlikely that Fitzpatrick won't be playing for the Jets in 2016, but we'll see who wins this game of chicken. If Fitzpatrick does re-sign, he's worth a look as a high-end backup fantasy quarterback.

Jets | NYJ not giving Ryan Fitzpatrick one year

Thu, 02 Jun 2016 05:34:33 -0700

Free-agent QB Ryan Fitzpatrick (Jets) is open to signing a one-year deal with the New York Jets worth $12 million, but the team is not willing to make that offer to him, according to sources.

Fantasy Tip: Fitzpatrick and the Jets are still unable to reach an agreement, so owners will need to keep an eye on the situation. The Jets are probably Fitzpatrick's best chance to start in 2016 and would be a low-end No. 1 fantasy quarterback if he re-signs. He would help the fantasy value of Brandon Marshall and Eric Decker.

Jets | Ryan Fitzpatrick will take one-year deal?

Wed, 01 Jun 2016 22:54:53 -0700

New York Jets QB Ryan Fitzpatrick is prepared to end his contract stalemate by informing the club he will take a one-year, $12 million guaranteed deal for the 2016 season, a source said Wednesday, June 1. It is the same money with the same guarantee the Jets are offering in the first year of their frontloaded three-year, $24 million proposal that has backup money in the second and third year. If the Jets were to agree to a one-year deal, it would be a $12 million cap hit, and they would need to clear $8.9 million.

Fantasy Tip: Fitzpatrick set the franchise record with 31 passing touchdowns last season. If he were to get his one-year contract and a chance to play for another big pay day next season, he might be a sneaky QB1 heading into 2016 with plenty of incentive for another big year.

Jets | Ryan Fitzpatrick could sign elsewhere

Tue, 31 May 2016 10:56:26 -0700

Free-agent QB Ryan Fitzpatrick (Jets) could spurn the New York Jets to take less money for another team on principle alone, according to team sources. The Jets no longer believe that re-signing Fitzpatrick is inevitable after their contract offer terms became public this weekend.

Fantasy Tip: It's anyone's guess as to what Fitzpatrick will do this offseason. His highest fantasy value as a fringe QB1 based on matchups would come if he re-ups with Gang Green and once again has Brandon Marshall and Eric Decker at his disposal. If Geno Smith is starting in Week 1 for the Jets, you'll need to significantly downgrade both Marshall and Decker.

Jets | More on Jets' offer to Ryan Fitzpatrick

Sun, 29 May 2016 13:20:23 -0700

Updating a previous report, Free-agent QB Ryan Fitzpatrick (Jets) has received a three-year offer from the New York Jets worth $24 million, according to sources. Fitzpatrick would receive $12 million in the first year of the deal and $6 million in the other two seasons.

Fantasy Tip: Fitzpatrick is still looking for a lucrative contract, but it appears the Jets are his best option to start in 2016. He would be a low-end No. 1 quarterback in deeper leagues if he re-signs and would help the value of Brandon Marshall and Eric Decker.
