In a surprising shootout against the Cardinals last week,
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
