Ryan Fitzpatrick named Texans starter


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/17/2014) Texans coach Bill O'Brien named Ryan Fitzpatrick the starting quarterback, the official team website reports Tuesday.

Fitzpatrick was expected to battle rookie Tom Savage for the job in training camp, but O'Brien has apparently seen enough to trust Fitzpatrick with the role now.

"He's a guy that earned the job," O'Brien said.

Savage will now compete with Case Keenum and T.J. Yates for the No. 2 job. O'Brien said "I don't know" when asked if he will carry two or three quarterbacks on the roster this season.


Texans continue to evaluate quarterbacks


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/16/2014) The Texans' quarterbacks -- all four of them between Ryan Fitzpatrick, Tom Savage, T.J. Yates and Case Keenum -- continue to be a work in progress, reports the Houston Chronicle.

Coach Bill O'Brien said that Fitzpatrick, the expected Week 1 starter, had a "decent offseason" and has done a good job of picking a new offense. But O'Brien said the quarterback competition is wide open.

"T.J. and Case ... they've also done a good job," O'Brien said. "Savage is a rookie. He's a little bit behind. But you can see he's got some tools. He can throw the football and he works extremely hard."

The backup position is expected to come down to Keenum and Yates. But O'Brien didn't rule out Savage for the spot.

"I don't know. We'll see. We'll let it play out a little bit," O'Brien said.


Texans could cut a quarterback


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/9/2014) The Texans may enter training camp with only three quarterbacks on the roster, coach Bill O’Brien said Monday per the Houston Chronicle.

Veteran Ryan Fitzpatrick is the Texans' expected Week 1 starter and signed a two-year, $7 million deal this offseason. Rookie Tom Savage was a fourth-round pick and is being groomed by O’Brien to eventually take over the position.

If the Texans trim their roster either T.J. Yates or Case Keenum is expected to be the odd man out.


Texans' quarterback job is 'wide open'


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(5/28/2014) Four quarterbacks have a chance to start the Texans' season opener, reports the Houston ChronicleRyan Fitzpatrick, Case Keenum, T.J. Yates and rookie Tom Savage are all in the running and the job is "wide open," coach Bill O'Brien said after the first day of OTAs.

"These guys are good guys, they’ve been fun to coach," O’Brien said. "(Quarterbacks coach) George Godsey’s done a great job with them. And I think they’ve enjoyed learning this offense and they’re competing. It looks like there’s good chemistry in the room, which is important in the quarterback room. I’ve been impressed with these guys, the way they work at it."


Texans select QB Tom Savage in Round 4


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(5/10/2014) With the No. 135 overall pick in the 2014 NFL Draft, the Houston Texans selected quarterback Tom Savage from Pittsburgh.

The 6-foot-4, 228-pound pocket passer has the strong arm that head coach Bill O'Brien wanted in the draft. He completed 61 percent of his passes for 2,958 yards with 21 touchdowns and nine interceptions in 2013 for the Panthers.

Savage will join a group that has Case Keenum, Ryan Fitzpatrick and T.J. Yates currently at quarterback.

Texans' O'Brien talks quarterback competition


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(3/25/2014) The Texans are expected to draft a quarterback with the top overall pick in May's NFL draft. But whoever it is will have to compete for the job, so says head coach Bill O'Brien via the Houston Chronicle

"They've been told they're going to be given a shot to compete," O'Brien said of passers Ryan Fitzpatrick, T.J. Yates and Case Keenum. "They've all been told basically the same thing -- they're going to be given a shot to compete. We brought Fitzy in and had a good talk with him. We told him nothing's guaranteed, that he's being brought in to compete, to get better every day and try to be the starting quarterback. They all have starting experience. The deal is competition."


Ryan Fitzpatrick stays in AFC South, signs with Houston


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(3/20/2014) Former Titans quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick will stay in the AFC South. The 31-year-old veteran signed a two-year contract with the Houston Texans on Thursday, ESPN reports.

Fitzpatrick was released by the Titans on Friday. He went 3-6 as a starter in 2013, passing for 2,454 yards, 14 touchdowns and 12 interceptions.

Ryan Fitzpatrick released by the Titans


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(3/14/2014) After signing Charlie Whitehurst to a multi-year deal this week, the Titans were expected to release quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick. They did just that on Friday according to The Tennessean

Fitzpatrick went 3-6 as a starter in 2013, passing for 2,454 yards, 14 touchdowns and 12 interceptions.


Ryan Fitzpatrick's release coming


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(3/13/2014) Following the addition of backup quarterback Charlie Whitehurst, the Titans are expected to part ways with Ryan Fitzpatrick, according to The Tennessean. Fitzpatrick has a $500,000 roster bonus coming to him in the next few days, so his release should come before that. 

Fitzpatrick went 3-6 as a starter in 2013, passing for 2,454 yards, 14 touchdowns and 12 interceptions.


Titans brass praises Ryan Fitzpatrick


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(2/23/2014) Titans quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick, who's set to make $2.75 million plus a $500,000 roster bonus this year, earned kind words from coach Ken Whisenhunt and general manager Ruston Webster, suggesting the team plans to keep him.

“Fitz is a good quarterback," Whisenhunt told the Tennessean. "He is a veteran guy that has played, and he made some plays for this team last year. I have a lot of respect for what he has done in this league.”

Added Webster: “I like Fitz. He did a good job for us in a tough situation.”

Fitzpatrick went 3-6 as a starter last season, throwing for 2,454 yards and 14 touchdowns with 12 interceptions.


Ryan Fitzpatrick accustomed to change


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(2/19/2014) Veteran Titans quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick is used to learning new offensive schemes. He's doing it again in Tennessee as Ken Whisenhunt takes over.

“If there’s one thing I’m good at, it’s adjusting to new staffs — from being on four different teams and going through a lot of different coaches,” Fitzpatrick told the Tennessean. “They did me a favor (here) by bringing in some (former Bills assistants), so that was good … guys I’m familiar with. So the more you stick around, the more familiar the faces start to look.”

Fitzpatrick said he's excited to "dive into a different system and really share some ideas and bounce them off the walls. It will be fun.”

He played in 11 games last season, throwing 14 touchdowns against 12 interceptions while posting an 82.0 passer rating. Fitzpatrick could back up Jake Locker or another quarterback Tennessee brings in.


Ryan Fitzpatrick's pedestrian game proves enough


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/29/2013) Titans quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick finished his season in typically ho-hum fashion Sunday, in a 16-10 win over the Texans.

Fitzpatrick did little beyond manage the game, completing 15 of 24 passes for 166 yards in the game. He did not throw a touchdown, and was intercepted once in the win.

Fitzpatrick ended up starting nine games as a result of injuries to starter Jake Locker. He completed 62.0 percent of his passes for 2,454 yards, with 14 touchdowns and 12 interceptions. 


Ryan Fitzpatrick facing solid matchup in finale


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/26/2013) Titans quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick didn't start the team's last game against the Texans, so his first time facing the AFC South rival will come in Week 17 Sunday.  Given the way the Texans have defended the pass this season, Fitzpatrick could be in for a solid game to close out the season.

The Texans rank 21st in the league in Fantasy points allowed to opposing quarterbacks this season, though that is partially the result of volume; no team has had the ball thrown against them less. Over the last 10 games, the Texans have given up 21 touchdowns with just four interceptions, and opposing quarterbacks are averaging 20.0 Fantasy points per game against the Texans.

Fitzpatrick has multiple touchdowns in just one of his last four games, but he stands a decent shot against a team that has given up 28 heading into the final game of the season. Each of our three Fantasy experts has Fitzpatrick ranked in the top-20 for Week 17, making him a low-end starting Fantasy option. 


Ryan Fitzpatrick comes back down to earth


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/22/2013) Titans quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick, who exploded with 402 passing yards and four passing touchdowns last week against Arizona, took a back seat on a day when the Titans chose to emphasize the running game Week 16 at Jacksonville, giving Chris Johnson and Shonn Greene a combined 41 carries for 181 yards.

Fitzpatrick completed 17 of 26 passes for 181 yards and a touchdown, hooking up with wide receiver Nate Washington on a 30-yard score that put the Titans up for good early in the fourth quarter. He did, however, throw an interception -- his seventh in four games -- and probably should have had another, but the ball bounced off defensive lineman Jason Babin's hands midway through the second quarter.

In seven games since Fitzpatrick took over for the injured Jake Locker in Week 10, this was just the second time he threw for less than 200 yards but the fourth time he threw just one touchdown pass. He'll look for better results Week 17 against the Texans.


Can Ryan Fitzpatrick do it again?


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/18/2013) In a surprising shootout against the Cardinals last week, Titans quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick threw for a career-high 402 yards and had four touchdown passes, making him the third-highest scoring quarterback in Fantasy for that week. That was against the league's 17th-ranked pass defense.

In Week 16, he'll be visiting the league's 19th-ranked pass defense. The Jaguars are allowing 249.9 yards per game and have given up the fourth-most Fantasy points to quarterbacks. Of course, they're even worse against the run, ranking 30th in yards allowed, so the Titans could end up leaning more on running back Chris Johnson in this one. But that's not the way it went in Week 10, when the Jaguars visited Tennessee. Fitzpatrick threw for 264 yards and two touchdowns. Johnson had just 30 yards on 12 carries.

The Jaguars have done a better job scoring of late, and as long as they keep the game close, Fitzpatrick has a chance of putting up decent numbers. Of course, he's not nearly as safe as so many other players at the position, so outside of two-quarterback leagues, you don't have much reason to start him.


Ryan Fitzpatrick goes over 400 yards


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/15/2013) Titans quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick led a furious fourth-quarter comeback Week 15, and it translated to monster numbers. Fitzpatrick finished 36 of 58 for 402 yards and four touchdowns with two interceptions.

One pick came in overtime, enabling Arizona to march for the winning field goal. But it was a huge Fantasy day for Fitzpatrick, who set season highs in attempts, completions, yards and touchdowns. Fitzpatrick, who threw 43 times in the second half and overtime, added 22 yards on three carries.

Fitzpatrick came out on fire, hitting his first eight throws. He was 12 of 15 for 116 yards and a touchdown at halftime. 

Fitzpatrick visits the Jaguars in Week 16. In Week 10, Fitzpatrick threw for 264 yards and two touchdowns against Jacksonville.


Ryan Fitzpatrick not worth the risk in Week 15


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/15/2013) Titans quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick is not a recommended Fantasy option heading into Week 15 against the Cardinals. He's just a No. 2 quarterback at best.

Fitzpatrick has gone two games in a row with 17 Fantasy points or less, and he's only scored more than 20 points once in his past four games. He also has four interceptions in his past two outings against the Colts and Broncos.

The Cardinals have allowed just one quarterback to score more than 20 Fantasy points in their past four games, which was Nick Foles in Week 13. They should be able to contain Fitzpatrick, even on the road.

Fitzpatrick benefits with Delanie Walker (concussion) back this week, but even so we'd just start him in two-quarterback leagues. He's not someone to trust in standard formats in the Fantasy playoffs.


Ryan Fitzpatrick held in check against Denver


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/8/2013) Titans QB Ryan Fitzpatrick was held in check Week 14 against Denver.

Fitzpatrick completed 13 of 24 passes, for 172 yards and a touchdown. Fitzpatrick started out hot, leading the Titans down the field on the team's first drive. Once the team was in the red zone, they gave the ball to Shonn Greene. A big kick return set up the team at the 3-yard-line on the next drive, but Chris Johnson punched it in. The team scored three rushing touchdowns before Fitzpatrick finally connected with Justin Hunter on a 41 yard touchdown.

Fitzpatrick will take on the Cardinals Week 15.


Ryan Fitzpatrick looking at a strong matchup Week 14


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/5/2013) Titans quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick is looking at a strong matchup Week 14 against the Broncos.

Denver has had a difficult time stopping opposing quarterbacks this season. Quarterbacks have averaged 22.00 Fantasy points per game against the Broncos. Through 12 games, the team has allowed 23 passing touchdowns. The Broncos passing defense has been inconsistent most of the year. They've held quarterback to one touchdown or fewer in six games, and allowed multiple touchdowns to quarterbacks in six games. They've been torn up by top-tier passers, as Tom Brady, Tony Romo and Andrew Luck have combined for 11 touchdowns in three games.

Fitzpatrick hasn't flashed that big-play ability this season. In the seven games he's played, he's only thrown for multiple touchdowns in two. It should be noted that both of those games were against subpar defenses. Still, Fitzpatrick lacks upside, making him a questionable Fantasy starter even in a good situation.


Ryan Fitzpatrick mistake-prone against Colts


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/1/2013) Titans quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick was mistake-free in the last three games heading into the clash Sunday in Indianapolis. He was far from it against the Colts with three interceptions and a fumble. The result was a defeat that all but knocked Tennessee out of the AFC playoff race.

Fitzpatrick missed on three of his first four attempts, but got on track with a 31-yard pass to Nate Washington late in the first quarter. His 16-yard run set up his 1-yard touchdown run in the second quarter and a 2-yard scoring strike to Chris Johnson gave his team a 14-12 lead midway through the third.

It was all downhill from there for Fitzpatrick, who tossed two picks in the second half and finished with a quarterback rating of 47.2. He will attempt to bounce back next Sunday in Denver.


Ryan Fitzpatrick a sleeper for Week 13


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(11/30/2013) Titans quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick should be considered a sleeper heading into Week 13 at the Colts. 

Fitzpatrick has played well since taking over for the injured Jake Locker (foot). He has at least 26 Fantasy points in two of his past three games, and he's passed for five touchdowns and no interceptions over that span.

The lone game he had with a poor Fantasy line was Week 11 against the Colts when he scored just 16 points. That's also the only time in the past five games Indianapolis has held a quarterback under 19 Fantasy points, including matchups with Peyton Manning, Case Keenum, Kellen Clemens and Carson Palmer.

Fitzpatrick could improve from his previous meeting with the Colts, and we like him as a No. 2 Fantasy quarterback with upside. You might not start him in most standard leagues, but in two-quarterback formats you should consider Fitzpatrick a must-start option.


Ryan Fitzpatrick scores game-winner late in fourth quarter


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11/24/2013) Titans quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick came up big late in Sunday's win over the Raiders in Week 12.

Fitzpatrick hooked up with Justin Hunter for a 54-yard touchdown strike in the third quarter. He then gave the Titans the lead for good with a 10-yard touchdown strike to Kendall Wright with 15 seconds remaining in the game.

Fitzpatrick completed 30 of 42 passes for 320 yards with two touchdowns and no interceptions. He was sacked twice and finished the game with a 109.2 passer rating. He'll look to keep rolling in Week 13 at Indianapolis.

Ryan Fitzpatrick ready for Raiders


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(11/21/2013) Titans quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick will make his second start since taking over for Jake Locker (foot) in Week 12 at Oakland, and he hopes to improve on his recent production.

Fitzpatrick has played well since taking over for Locker in Week 10 against Jacksonville with 486 passing yards, three touchdowns and no interceptions and seven carries for 39 yards and a touchdown.

The matchup against the Raiders is good but not great since four quarterbacks have scored at least 20 Fantasy points against Oakland but only one in the past five games. That one just happened to be Nick Foles, who had 59 Fantasy points at Oakland in Week 9.

We're not expecting Fitzpatrick to have a huge game, and he's just a low-end starting option in two-quarterback leagues. But hopefully he'll continue to play well and give the Titans skill players -- Chris Johnson, Kendall Wright and Delanie Walker specifically -- a chance to shine.


Ryan Fitzpatrick solid in losing effort


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11/14/2013) Titans quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick showed he can manage the offense yet again in Week 11, though a comeback bid fell short in a 30-27 loss to the Colts Thursday.

Fitzpatrick was impressive with his efficiency in the game, as he completed 22 of 28 passes for 222 yards. He led the team on a few early scoring drives, but the Titans were held out of the end zone from the 4-minute mark of the first quarter until the 2-minute warning at the end of the game, when he found Delanie Walker for a 19-yard score to cut the lead to just three points.

Fitzpatrick has filled in ably for the injured Jake Locker, who is out for the season with a foot injury. He has four touchdowns and 486 yards without an interception in the last two games since replacing Locker. He will try to keep that going in Week 12, when the Titans face the Raiders on the road. 


Ryan Fitzpatrick better than his 2013 starts may indicate


by Nando Di Fino | Senior Fantasy Writer
(11/13/2013) Ryan Fitzpatrick started two games for the Titans earlier this season -- completing 38-of-70 passes for 418 yards, two touchdowns, and four interceptions. While that may look ugly, Fitzpatrick had some bad timing factored in, as he faced Seattle and Kansas City -- two of the league's strongest pass defenses. 

Week 11 brings a matchup against the Colts, who have allowed 19 Fantasy points per game to opposing quarterbacks. And over their last five games, three quarterbacks have scored 26 or more points against the Colts. 

This isn't enough to vault Fitzpatrick into "must start" territory; it might not even push him into, "should start" territory. But there is some hope here for a decent game, helped along by Fitzpatrick's underrated running skills. 

He's a fun gamble in 2QB leagues, but can be left on the bench in most standard formats.
