|Fitzpatrick’s 2011 season mirrored that of the Bills as he started the season on a hot streak before cooling off considerably over the season’s second half. He topped 25 fantasy points in each of his first three starts, throwing for 841 yards and 9 touchdowns in wins over the Chiefs, Raiders and Patriots. From that point on, it was mostly downhill with Fitzpatrick displaying the inconsistency that has plagued his career as he finished the season with a career-high and league-leading 24 interceptions. Rewarded with a $59-million, six-year contract extension after Week 6, his production plummeted with five games under 210 yards passing over his final ten weeks – a period in which he threw for 12 touchdowns and 17 interceptions. While injuries to running back Fred Jackson and at the wide receiver position were part of the problem, a substantial portion of the blame goes to Fitzpatrick whose accuracy got worse as the season progressed. While his season ended badly, Fitzpatrick still finished as the 11th ranked fantasy quarterback which was generally higher than predicted. Consider him an upper tier backup once again in 2012 (the Bills threw it 58% of the time in 2011) and move him down in leagues that penalize for turnovers given his propensity for throwing interceptions.

Jets QB could still play while thumb heals
|If Jets quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick decides to have surgery on his left thumb before the end of the season—and he's considering it—he may not have to miss any games, according to a surgeon who specializes in treating hand and elbow injuries. (NJ.com)|
FF Today's Take: Fitzpatrick is considering surgery this Friday (the Jets play Thursday night) but might still be a able to play the rest of the season wearing a protective glove. The injury is on his non-throwing hand and recovery time is said to be at least eight weeks.

|Ryan Fitzpatrick is still the Jets' starting quarterback.
After suffering torn ligaments in his thumb against the Raiders, the quarterback practiced fully Wednesday and was named the starter for New York's matchup with the Jaguars on Sunday.
FF Today's Take: Ryan Fitzpatrick was able to use both hands during handoffs and didn't appear to have any issues taking snaps from under center. New York has cleared him to start but likely won't ask him to throw the ball more than needed against the Jaguars.
