Ryan Fitzpatrick has had one of the most fascinating careers for an NFL quarterback. He played the position for eight different teams through his professional career, and he will play for his ninth team when he takes his first snap for the Washington Football Team in 2021. Fitzpatrick as has some young, talented pass catchers to throw as he is set to continue his career at 38 years old.

Here, we’ll take a look at the prop bets on the table for Washington Football Team QB Ryan Fitzpatrick on DraftKings Sportsbook ahead of the 2021 NFL season and make our picks.

3900.5 passing yards: Over (-115) or Under (-115)

Our pick: Under

The Ryan Fitzpatrick experience is a wild one and because of this, it will be difficult to take the over in this spot. He may have some games in which he looks fantastic, but consistency through a full season has been an issue for him. Fitzpatrick threw for more than this 3,900.5 total one time in his entire career, and it came in 2015 with the New York Jets. He appears to have a future star in Terry McLaurin to throw to, but we’re going with the under yardage total.

23 passing TDs: Over (-120) or Under (-110)

Our pick: Under

Fitzpatrick threw for more than 23 touchdown passes three times in his career, and we’re betting against that happening in 2021 despite an extra regular season game. Washington ranked No. 29 in passing touchdowns last year and while they have a decent red zone threat in tight end Logan Thomas, they appear more likely to run near the goal line with backs Antonio Gibson and Peyton Barber, who took plenty of the short-yardage work in 2020.
