Ryan Fitzpatrick is coming off his best game of the season against the Eagles and gets another good matchup against the Jets this week.

Fitzpatrick has been very Fitzpatrick-like this season, as he YOLO’s passes and takes off running. Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn’t. The emergence of DeVante Parker has helped him quite a bit, as Parker is now coming down with those 50/50 passes.

The Bearded Professor will throw his share of interceptions, but he’ll also rush for touchdowns, as he has three this season. You can’t rely on him in fantasy, but in good matchups his upside is high enough to stream him in the same style Fitzpatrick heaves passes.

Fantasy football analysis: Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Fitzpatrick

This week, Fitzpatrick returns to one of his many old teams, the New York Jets. He already had a strong game against them in Miami, throwing for 288 yards and three touchdowns and no interceptions.

On the year, the Jets have been middle-of-the road against quarterbacks, ranking 15th in fantasy points allowed. But the Jets have also given up some good fantasy days to Dwayne Haskins, Daniel Jones, Fitzpatrick, Gardner Minshew and even the ghost of Tom Brady. The Jets should be able to put points up on the Dolphins bad secondary, pushing Fitzpatrick to will his team and himself into fantasy points.
