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 shifting position 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.
