Jets acquire QB Ryan Fitzpatrick-- Wed Mar 11 1:05 pm --
Texans receive late-round conditional draft pick in 2016
The Houston Texans traded quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick to the New York Jets for a late-round conditional draft pick in 2016, a league source told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter. The Texans will get a conditional seventh-round pick that can become a sixth based on how much playing time Fitzpatrick gets with the Jets.
FF Today's Take:With Houston re-signing Ryan Mallett and working on a deal with Brian Hoyer, Fitzpatrick became expendable. Fitzpatrick and Jets' offensive coordinator Chan Gailey are familiar with each from their time in Buffalo. Fitzpatrick is expected to battle Geno Smith in camp but we'd give the nod to the veteran at this point in time.
Brandon Marshall heading to the Jets-- Fri Mar 6 11:05 am --
FF Today's Take:This move marks a downturn for Marshall's fantasy value considering the quarterback situation in New York. Geno Smith has thrown just 25 touchdown passes in two seasons. In a ripple effect, Alshon Jeffery gets a rise in fantasy value and becomes the clear No.1 receiver in Chicago. This move likely means the Jets will walk on Percy Harvin.
