    Dolphins' Minkah Fitzpatrick: Caps rookie campaign quietly

    Minkah Fitzpatrick logged two tackles (one solo) during Sunday's 42-17 loss to the Bills. He finishes the year with 80 tackles, nine passes defended and two interceptions, one of which he returned for a touchdown.Fitzpatrick underperformed during Miami's season finale, but that doesn't take much away from what was an impressive rookie season as a whole. The 2018 first-round pick played over 95 percent of the Miami Dolphins' defensive snaps from Week 9 to Week 17 and drew the start at four positions during that time -- nickel, slot and outside cornerback, in addition to safety -- sometimes even shifting positions on a weekly basis. The 22-year-old's outstanding versatility all but guarantees his position as a key piece of Miami's defense for the foreseeable future.

    Dolphins' Minkah Fitzpatrick: Scores pick-six in loss

    Minkah Fitzpatrick logged six tackles (all solo), two passes defended and one interception, which he returned for a touchdown during Sunday's 41-17 loss to the Vikings.Fitzpatrick filled in for star cornerback Xavien Howard (knee) during the Week 15 loss and managed to score his first career touchdown. The rookie first-round pick delivered a big play with the Miami Dolphins trailing 21-0 midway through the second quarter, perfectly reading a short pass intended for Stefon Diggs and picking off Kirk Cousins. Fitzpatrick then outran Diggs, returning the interception 50 yards for a touchdown and putting Miami on the board. If Howard is unable to suit up again against the Jaguars in Week 16, Fitzpatrick will carry significant upside in IDP formats.
