Buccaneers' Ryan Fitzpatrick: Successful in veteran back-up role in '17
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fitzpatrick completed 96 of 163 passes (58.9 completion percentage) for 1,103 yards with seven touchdowns and three interceptions across six games in 2017. He also rushed 15 times for 78 yards.

The 35-year-old was inked last offseason expressly for the scenario he was ultimately deployed in, namely, to spell starter Jameis Winston in the event of injury. Fitzpatrick led the Buccaneers to a 2-1 record over the three full games he started in Weeks 10-12 when Winston succumbed to a nagging shoulder problem, compiling 745 yards in those contests. He actually generated his most productive effort during Week 6 emergency duty, completing 22 of 32 passes for 290 yards with three touchdowns and two interceptions over two-plus quarters of play against the Cardinals, a game that marked the onset of Winston's aforementioned health issues. Having played in 2017 on a one-year, $3 million contract, Fitzpatrick certainly made a case to be brought back next season, although a myriad of factors -- including salary, potential personnel moves and the quarterback's own desire to continue playing -- figure to play a part in whether a return comes to fruition.

Buccaneers' Ryan Fitzpatrick: Headed back to reserve role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fitzpatrick will reprise his backup role in Sunday's game against the Packers with head coach Dirk Koetter naming Jameis Winston (shoulder) the team's Week 13 starter, Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Fitzpatrick proved adequate while starting in place of the injured Winston the last three games, leading the Buccaneers to a 2-1 record while completing 57.4 percent of his passes to the tune of 745 yards, three touchdowns and only one turnover. With Winston turning in a full practice and taking every rep with the first team Wednesday, there's apparently no lingering concern about the health of his throwing shoulder, so the 2015 No. 1 overall pick is expected to start each of the Bucs' final five contests of the season.

Buccaneers' Ryan Fitzpatrick: Impressive yardage total in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fitzpatrick completed 27 of 44 passes for 283 yards with no touchdowns or interceptions in Sunday's 34-20 loss to the Falcons. He also rushed twice for 20 yards.

Although he couldn't get his team into the end zone through the air, Fitzpatrick once again showed good command of the offense, connecting with eight different pass catchers along the way. He continued to lean heavily on the starting wideout duo of Mike Evans and DeSean Jackson (14 receptions on 23 targets for 138 yards combined), but he also once again made good use of rookie tight end O.J. Howard, connecting with the 2017 first-round pick on three occasions for 52 yards. Fitzpatrick has proven aptly capable of leading the Buccaneers in place of Jameis Winston during the latter's shoulder injury, but his starting tenure could well come to an end if Winston is deemed healthy enough to start a Week 13 road tilt against the Packers.

Buccaneers' Ryan Fitzpatrick: Getting another start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fitzpatrick will make another start Week 12 in Atlanta, Jenna Laine of reports.

Jameis Winston (shoulder) was re-evaluated Monday and ruled out for at least one more game. The Bucs don't have much incentive to rush their franchise quarterback back into action, as the team isn't really in the playoff picture even after Fitzpatrick engineered victories the past two weeks. He was impressive in Sunday's 30-20 win over the Dolphins, completing 22 of 37 passes for 275 yards, with two touchdowns and no turnovers against a lifeless defense. Fitzpatrick likely will face more of a challenge in Week 12 against an Atlanta team that still has playoff hopes.

Buccaneers' Ryan Fitzpatrick: Shows vast improvement in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fitzpatrick completed 22 of 37 passes for 275 yards with two touchdowns and no interceptions while also rushing three times for nine yards in Sunday's 30-20 win over the Dolphins.

Starting his second game in a Buccaneers uniform, Fitzpatrick looked much more like the quarterback that's enjoyed intermittent success as a starter in the league over the last decade, averaging a respectable 7.4 yards per attempt and connecting with nine different pass catchers on the afternoon. He enjoyed relatively strong protection as well, getting taken down just once on his 37 dropbacks. The 13-year veteran was able to cash in a pair of short drives with second-quarter touchdown passes to O.J. Howard and DeSean Jackson, respectively. He then led a pivotal nine-play, 58-yard march late in the fourth quarter to set up Patrick Murray's game-winning 35-yard field goal. Jameis Winston's (shoulder) status for a Week 12 divisional showdown with the Falcons will be determined at some point during the practice week, at which point Fitzpatrick will learn whether he'll have a chance to build on Sunday's successful effort.
