Steelers' Minkah Fitzpatrick: Breakout season comes to an end
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fitzpatrick recorded four tackles (three solo) in Sunday's 28-10 loss to the Ravens.

After playing two games with Miami Fitzpatrick joined Pittsburgh and played the remaining 14 games. He finished the 2019 season with 69 tackles -- 57 with the Steelers -- a forced fumble and two fumble recoveries -- one of which he returned for a touchdown. He also finished tied for fourth in the league -- sharing the team lead with Joe Haden -- with five interceptions including another touchdown. Fitzpatrick now has seven interceptions -- including two pick-sixes -- in two seasons and is under contract until 2023.

Steelers' Minkah Fitzpatrick: Logs five tackles in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fitzpatrick recorded five tackles (two solo) in Sunday's 16-10 loss to the Jets.

Fitzpatrick hasn't made many big plays in recent weeks. He has just one pass breakup and no interceptions or sacks over his last six games while making more than three tackles just twice in that span.

Steelers' Minkah Fitzpatrick: Two tackles in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fitzpatrick tallied two tackles, both solo, in Sunday's loss to the Bills.

Fitzpatrick has notched only three tackles over the past two weeks, but played every defensive snap over that timespan and should continue to do so. He will have a chance to take advantage of Jets quarterback Sam Darnold, who has been turnover-prone at times this season, in Week 16.

Steelers' Minkah Fitzpatrick: Logs just one tackle in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fitzpatrick notched one solo tackle in Sunday's win over the Cardinals.

It was a season-low for Fitzpatrick. He has fewer than five tackles in five of his last seven games but has contributed four interceptions, six pass breakups and two fumble recoveries in that time.

Steelers' Minkah Fitzpatrick: Another takeaway in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fitzpatrick recorded six tackles (one solo) and had a fumble recovery in Pittsburgh's 16-10 win over Cincinnati on Sunday.

With the Steelers clinging to a 13-10 lead in the fourth quarter and the Bengals driving downfield, Devin Bush forced a Tyler Boyd fumble at the eight-yard line that Fitzpatrick scooped up and returned for 36 yards. It was his third fumble recovery -- and second with Pittsburgh -- giving him eight takeaways in 2019. Despite having a +10 turnover differential this season, Pittsburgh failed to have any takeaways against Week 13 opponent Cleveland when they met two weeks ago.

Steelers' Minkah Fitzpatrick: Scores again in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fitzpatrick recorded four tackles (three solo), one interception and returned a fumble for a touchdown in Sunday's 17-12 win over the Rams.

Fitzpatrick continues to pay huge dividends since joining the Steelers and has scored in two straight games. This time he took a fumble and returned it 43 yards late in the first half to give Pittsburgh a 14-7 lead that it would not relinquish. With the score 17-12 in the final minute of the game, Fitzpatrick intercepted a Jared Goff pass intended for Robert Woods to preserve the victory. Fitzpatrick now has four interceptions in the last three games and five in seven games with Pittsburgh.

Steelers' Minkah Fitzpatrick: Takes it to the house on Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fitzpatrick recorded seven tackles (four solo) and had an interception for a touchdown in Sunday's 26-24 win over the Colts.

Fitzpatrick stepped in front of a pass from backup quarterback Brian Hoyer to Jack Doyle near the goal line and ran 96 yards to tie the game at 10-10 late in the first half. It was the second-longest regular-season pick six in franchise history. Fitzpatrick has three interceptions in the last two games and four in six games with Pittsburgh.

Steelers' Minkah Fitzpatrick: Haunts former team in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fitzpatrick had two tackles (one solo) and two interceptions in Monday's 27-14 win over the Dolphins.

Selected by Miami with the 11th overall pick in the 2018 draft, Fitzpatrick made his former team pay for trading him earlier this season. His first interception of the game came on a pass intended for Nick O'Leary that led to Pittsburgh's first touchdown, and his second came on a pass intended for Jakeem Grant. Pittsburgh scored on the ensuing drive after the latter pick to take a 17-14 lead they never relinquished. Fitzpatrick now has three interceptions in five games with Pittsburgh but may not have as much success in Week 9 again Indianapolis quarterback Jacoby Brissett, who has only thrown three interceptions this season.

Steelers' Minkah Fitzpatrick: Makes history in debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fitzpatrick had five tackles (four solo) and an interception in Sunday's 24-20 loss to San Francisco.

Fitzpatrick was acquired from Miami this past week and his presence was felt in his first game with Pittsburgh. He intercepted a pass in the first quarter and then forced a red zone fumble in the second quarter that was recovered by Devin Bush, making him the first Pittsburgh player with an interception and forced fumble in the opening half of a game since 2008 (James Harrison). Fitzpatrick now has two forced fumbles in his last two games and faces Cincinnati -- with five fumbles already -- in Week 4.

Steelers' Minkah Fitzpatrick: Slated to start at free safety
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Mike Tomlin said Fitzpatrick will start at free safety and the team doesn't plan to move him around, Gerry Dulac of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

Fitzpatrick was unhappy in Miami and ultimately requested a trade partly because of the Dolphins' willingness to shift him around among multiple positions, including safety and cornerback. The Dolphins had little choice but to move Fitzpatrick around due to their lack of talented players on defense, but the Steelers don't have that issue, with a strong group of cornerbacks in Joe Haden (shoulder), Steven Nelson and Artie Burns. Expect the Steelers to hold steady with Fitzpatrick at free safety, and he won't face any real competition for snaps unless Sean Davis (shoulder) returns from IR in Week 11. According to Mike Garafolo of NFL Network, Fitzpatrick will play Sunday versus the 49ers, but Tomlin may limit his role to start out.

Steelers' Minkah Fitzpatrick: Heading to Pittsburgh
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Steelers acquired Fitzpatrick from the Dolphins on Monday in exchange for a 2020 first-round pick, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Just a week after requesting a trade, the 2018 first-round pick had his request granted. Over his 18 career games with the Dolphins, Fitzpatrick saw action at both cornerback and safety, but he figures to see the bulk of his action at the latter position in Pittsburgh. Expect Fitzpatrick to immediately slide into the starting lineup at free safety as a replacement for Sean Davis, who is battling a shoulder injury. Fitzpatrick flashed some intriguing potential as a rookie last season for Miami, racking up 80 stops, nine pass breakups and two interceptions.

Dolphins' Minkah Fitzpatrick: Creates turnover in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fitzpatrick notched six tackles (four solo) and one forced fumble, which he recovered, during Sunday's 43-0 loss to the Patriots.

Fitzpatrick logged a strong performance despite the Dolphins struggling as a whole. The 2018 first-round pick is reportedly exploring trade options, and his showing during Sunday's game could help garner interest from teams around the league. Barring a deal getting done in quick fashion, Fitzpatrick is expected to play a starting role in Miami's secondary versus the Cowboys in Week 3.

Dolphins' Minkah Fitzpatrick: Exploring trade options
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fitzpatrick was given permission from the Dolphins to explore potential trade opportunities, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

The 2018 first-round pick is apparently unhappy after playing three or four different positions against the Ravens in Week 1, which follows an offseason where he was "uncomfortable" with his role under new coach Brian Flores. The Dolphins are apparently seeking a first-round pick in the potential return for the 22-year-old, which makes a trade seem unlikely in the imminent future. Fitzpatrick played 48 of 71 defensive snaps and had six tackles (four solo) in the season opener and is still expected to play in Sunday's game against the Patriots.

Dolphins' Minkah Fitzpatrick: Caps rookie campaign quietly
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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 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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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 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.

Dolphins' Minkah Fitzpatrick: Snags first interception
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fitzpatrick recorded 10 tackles (four solo) and two passes defensed, including an interception, in Sunday's loss to New England.

Fitzpatrick logged 10 tackles for the second straight week. His two passes defensed and first career interception were impressive coming against Tom Brady. Fitzpatrick's performance was a rare bright spot for a Dolphins defense that allowed 38 points Sunday. Looking ahead, Fitzpatrick and the Dolphins take on the Bengals in Week 5.

Dolphins' Minkah Fitzpatrick: Plays 97 percent of snaps
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fitzpatrick logged 97 percent of Miami's defensive snaps in Sunday's 28-20 win over the Raiders.

Fitzpatrick racked up 10 tackles in his first NFL start, suiting up in place of Reshad Jones (shoulder). The first-rounder seemed confused at times, which could be attributed to the Dolphins' secondary shifting around with little preparation, or simply to rookie mistakes. The 21-year-old logged a solid performance and at times showcased the athleticism that warranted his No. 11 overall selection, but he has clear room for improvement as the season continues.

Dolphins' Minkah Fitzpatrick: Starting at safety
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fitzpatrick will draw the start in Sunday's game against the Raiders, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports.

Fitzpatrick is drawing the start with Reshad Jones (shoulder) inactive for the contest. Look for Fitzpatrick to see significant snaps as he'll aim to show the ability that made him the 11th overall pick in this year's draft.

Dolphins' Minkah Fitzpatrick: On pace to start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fitzpatrick is expected as the team's starting nickelback, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports.

Fitzpatrick, this year's 11th overall pick, has lived up to his draft slotting this preseason. The 21-year-old is in line to replace Bobby McCain as Miami's starting nickelback and seems capable of playing on all three downs, considering he seems to be holding his ground in the running game.

Dolphins' Minkah Fitzpatrick: Solid to open preseason
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fitzpatrick logged three tackles (two solo) and one pass breakup during the Dolphins' 26-24 preseason loss to the Buccaneers on Thursday.

Fitzpatrick displayed his versatility in the first preseason game of his career, looking the part of a free safety while breaking up a downfield throw and also making his presence felt much closer to the line of scrimmage. The 11th overall pick in April's draft has had a quiet training camp thus far, but if Thursday is any indication, preseason games may serve an excellent platform for him to showcase his talent.
