Fantasy Analysis
Week 8 Projections
Fitzpatrick regained the starting quarterback job in Week 7 when Geno Smith exited the game with a a torn ACL. He looks to rebound Week 8 with a favorable matchup against the Browns passing defense, but he could be on a short leash if he continues his erratic play.
Passsing: 245 Yards, 2 TD, 1 INT.
Rushing: 11 Yards, 0 TD.

Season Projections
7/27/16: Fitzpatrick has signed a 1-year, $12 million deal ($3 million available in team-related incentives) with the Jets. This is great news for all the fantasy owners that have already invested a pick in WRs Brandon Marshall and Eric Decker. Fitzpatrick remains a borderline QB1 in 12-team leagues. 7/3/16: A locker room fight cleared the way for "FitzMagic" to resurrect his career last season. Signing with the Jets originally as a backup, Fitzpatrick was given the keys to the Gang Green offense after some fisticuffs landed Geno Smith on the shelf with a broken jaw. Fitzpatrick started all 16 games during his second tour of duty in offensive coordinator Chan Gailey's Pistol Spread attack (Fitzpatrick played for Gailey with the Bills from 2010-2012), and the 12th-year journeyman compiled career highs in passing yards and touchdown passes to wrap-up 2015 as the 12th-rated fantasy quarterback. It's widely assumed that Fitzpatrick will re-sign with the Jets. Despite his successful Jets debut, fantasy owners should be mindful that Fitzpatrick, who is entering his age 34-season, probably has reached his ceiling statistically and a regression is likely. Fitzpatrick is a journeyman for a reason. He has a well-deserved reputation for being streaky and turnover prone. Only four quarterbacks tossed more picks than Fitzpatrick did in 2015. Despite throwing to a talented group led by Brandon Marshall, Eric Decker and Bilal Powell, Fitzpatrick's career year produced only 3,905 passing yards and a shoddy 59.6 completion percentage. While the addition of excellent pass-catching back Matt Forte is a plus, Fitzpatrick's schedule also looks way more challenging. Soft defenses of the AFC South and the NFC East have been replaced with matchups against the AFC North and the NFC West. Fitzpatrick will cut it as a fantasy backup. If you want a quarterback with upside, however, look somewhere else.

Passing: 2137 Yards, 13 TD, 11 INT.
Rushing: 118 Yards, 1 TD.
