Buccaneers' Ryan Fitzpatrick: Will start in preseason opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fitzpatrick will start at quarterback during Thursday's preseason opener in Miami, Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

This comes as no surprise since Fitzpatrick is set to start the first few games of the regular season due to Jameis Winston's three-game suspension. However, it's unclear how many snaps either of the team's top quarterbacks will take Thursday, as the Buccaneers are dealing with a rash of injuries along the offensive line. Head coach Dirk Koetter did indicate that Fitzpatrick could play the entire first quarter, but the risk of injury could force the coaching staff to give extra reps to reserves Ryan Griffin and Austin Allen.

Buccaneers' Ryan Fitzpatrick: Building chemistry with pass catchers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fitzpatrick is getting work with the first-team offense during training camp, Scott Smith of the team's official site reports.

With Jameis Winston suspended for the first three weeks of the season, Fitzpatrick is naturally getting much more extensive work with the Bucs' top tier of pass catchers than he would under normal circumstances, The 35-year-old has shown excellent chemistry with DeSean Jackson and Mike Evans on a number of throws, and Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times reports that the veteran signal caller made nice connections with Cameron Brate, Adam Humphries and O.J. Howard in Sunday's practice. Fitzpatrick generated a solid 248.3 yards per game, 3:1 TD:INT and 2-1 record as a starter last season when Winston was sidelined with a shoulder injury, and the team hopes that preparing him to lead the first unit through a full camp and preseason will yield even better results.

Buccaneers' Ryan Fitzpatrick: Confirmed as season-opening starter
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Dirk Koetter confirmed that Fitzpatrick is the Buccaneers' planned starter at quarterback for the first three games of the season while Jameis Winston serves a suspension, Scott Smith of the team's official site reports.

Winston will be able to take part in team activities during training camp and the preseason, but the Buccaneers will waste no time getting Fitzpatrick up to speed with the first-team offense, as the 35-year-old worked with that unit during the team's first practice Thursday. There was never much doubt that the Buccaneers would go with anyone other than Fitzpatrick, who has made 133 career appearances (119 starts) over 14 NFL seasons. Neither of the other two signal-callers in camp (Ryan Griffin and Austin Allen) have taken an NFL snap nor possess any notable pedigree.

Buccaneers' Ryan Fitzpatrick: Will start at season's outset
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fitzpatrick is slated to start the first three games of the 2018 seasons due to the suspension of the same length received by Jameis Winston, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

Fitzpatrick has again found a way to earn starts, only this time it's the result of Winston violating the NFL's personal conduct policy. In three starts for Winston last season, Fitzpatrick completed 57.4 percent of his passes, averaged 248.3 yards per game and posted three touchdowns versus one interception. It's difficult to expect much more of the 35-year-old signal-caller, despite oodles of skill-position talent on the roster.

Buccaneers' Ryan Fitzpatrick: Retained as Winston's backup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fitzpatrick has agreed to terms with the Buccaneers, Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

As a result, the 35-year-old QB is poised to reprise his role as Jameis Winston's top backup. Fitzpatrick started three games for Tampa Bay in 2017 while Winston dealt with a shoulder injury, en route to completing 96 of 163 passes for 1,103 yards with seven touchdowns and three interceptions across six games overall. In his current role, Fitzpatrick is off the re-draft radar, but in the event that Winston misses time for any reason, Fitzpatrick can be a capable lineup plug-in, in both real and fantasy terms.
