The Buccaneers quarterback carousel continues as Jameis Winston replaced Ryan Fitzpatrick mid-game against the Giants. Fitzpatrick threw three interceptions in the first half and was benched for Winston who proceeded to throw two touchdowns and fumble the ball for a touchdown into the end-zone. Although Winston brought his team close to victory, there has been no word on whether he will start next week. This situation is one to monitor as there is some value in the QB position here if they'd just stick with one.
Buccaneers quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick disappointed owners last weekend with an absolute dud against the Redskins but has a chance to bounce back against the Giants' porous defense. The New York Giants are basically in a weird rebuilding phase where they are pretending to try. With the current state of the defense and Eli Manning at quarterback, it is clear that they don't care. The Giants are solid to target quarterbacks against, putting Fitzpatrick in play as an above-average QB for Week 11. This isn't going to be some blow-up game for the Fitz-man but if you have no one better, feel free starting him.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers head coach Dirk Koetter said quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick will start in Week 11 against the Giants. Fitzpatrick went 29-for-41 for 406 yards, no touchdowns and two interceptions in the Week 10 loss to the Redskins, but Tampa still thinks he gives them a better chance at winning than Jameis Winston. Against the Giants this Sunday, Fitz has QB1 potential.
