Ryan Fitzpatrick Calls It A Career

Free-agent quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick is retiring from the National Football League on Thursday. Fitzpatrick injured his hip in the season opener for the Washington Commanders in 2021, missed the rest of the year and required surgery in December. The man they called Fitzmagic and the Amish Rifle will end his incredible NFL career having played 17 seasons with nine different teams. The journeyman gunslinger spent four years with the Buffalo Bills from 2009-12, throwing a combined 71 touchdowns and 54 interceptions with the team in a three-year span from 2010-12. The 39-year-old was originally a seventh-round selection by the Rams in 2005 out of Harvard. Fitzpatrick also played for the Bengals, Titans, Texans, Jets, Buccaneers and Dolphins.

Ryan Fitzpatrick Makes Sense For Bills

Washington Commanders impending free-agent quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick makes a lot of sense to be Buffalo Bills quarterback Josh Allen's backup in 2022. Mitchell Trubisky, who was Allen's backup last year, will move on in free agency and could land a big deal at the top of a weak free-agent class. Fitzpatrick was previously with the Bills and was Washington's starter heading into 2021 before suffering a season-ending injury in Week 1. Other low-cost backup options for Buffalo at QB could be Andy Dalton, Teddy Bridgewater and Tyrod Taylor. It's unknown if Fitzpatrick wants to continue his playing career, but his personality, gun-slinging mentality and locker-room dynamic seems to be the best fit alongside Allen.

Ryan Fitzpatrick Will Undergo Hip Surgery, Season Officially Over

Washington Football Team quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick (hip) will undergo arthroscopic surgery on his hip, officially ending his 2021 season. According to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network, the surgery is a measure that will help him heal. The 38-year-old suffered a hip subluxation in the Week 1 loss to the Los Angeles Chargers and appeared in only one game in 2021. He finishes the season with 13 yards passing on six attempts. Fitzpatrick is on an expiring deal with Washington, and it's unclear where the veteran will land in 2022. Taylor Heinicke will continue to be Washington's starting quarterback and has been a solid fantasy asset this season. The 28-year-old has thrown for 2,809 yards and an 18:11 TD: INT ratio while rushing for 289 yards and a score over 12 games. Heinicke can be used as a streamer against the Dallas Cowboys in Week 14.

Ryan Fitzpatrick Not Expected To Return This Season

Washington Football Team quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick (hip) is not expected to return in 2021, per Ian Rapoport of NFL Network. The veteran quarterback exited Week 1 and hasn't taken the field since then. Rapoport writes that Fitzpatrick "is dealing with swelling and pain in the hip and groin area." He also notes that the 38-year-old is due for another MRI soon, which will give all parties more info surrounding his health, "but based on where his hip is, the belief is he won't see the field again this year." As such, Taylor Heinicke is likely in line to remain the starter for the rest of the season.

No Updated Timeline For Ryan Fitzpatrick

Washington Football Team quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick's (hip) MRI exam this week showed "some progress," but there is no updated timeline for his return, according to head coach Ron Rivera. The 38-year-old signal-caller suffered a serious hip injury in the Week 1 loss to the Los Angeles Chargers and will remain out for the foreseeable future. There's still a chance that Fitzpatrick might not be able to make it back at all in 2021. Taylor Heinicke will continue to start under center for Washington. He'll enter Week 10 action as the No. 20 fantasy QB with a matchup against a vulnerable Tampa Bay Buccaneers secondary and will be a midrange QB2 with upside.

Ryan Fitzpatrick Will Undergo An MRI This Week

Washington Football Team quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick (hip) is scheduled to undergo an MRI this week. The 38-year-old suffered a hip subluxation in the season-opening loss to the Los Angeles Chargers. An MRI would give a precise timeline of when the veteran quarterback will return from the injured reserve. Fantasy managers should continue to monitor the situation, and Fitzpatrick is worth stashing in Superflex leagues. Taylor Heinicke will remain Washington's starting quarterback while Fitzpatrick is sidelined. He's thrown for 1,928 yards, 11 touchdowns, nine interceptions while rushing for 232 yards, and a score over eight games in 2021. Heinicke is in the QB2 conversation against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 10.

Ryan Fitzpatrick Still Weeks From Returning

Washington Football Team quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick (hip), who suffered a hip subluxation in the season-opening loss to the Los Angeles Chargers, is still weeks away from returning, according to sources. Fitzpatrick remains on crutches, meaning Taylor Heinicke will remain the starter for the foreseeable future. The 38-year-old Fitzpatrick likely undergo an MRI exam next week, but the belief is that he won't be able to return until at least after the team's Week 9 bye. The team is hopeful that he will return this year, but his rehab has gone slower than expected, and it's not a certainty that he'll return. Although Heinicke has struggled of late, head coach Ron Rivera still has confidence in him, and his starting job doesn't appear to be in danger. Against the Green Bay Packers in Week 7, Heinicke will remain a midrange QB2.

Ryan Fitzpatrick Will Attempt To Rehab Hip Without Surgery

Washington Football Team quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick (hip) will attempt to rehab his right hip subluxation without surgery for now after he underwent a battery of tests and sought several expert opinions, according to sources. He is expected to miss around eight weeks. It remains to be seen how the 38-year-old's rehab goes, but the Washington offense will now be Taylor Heinicke's show for the foreseeable future. FitzMagic had intrigue in two-QB leagues in this offense, but there's no guarantee that he'll return later this season and be effective. And if Heinicke plays well in his absence, the coaching staff could decide to let him run with the job when/if Fitzpatrick is ready to return. Heinicke will be a low-end QB2 option in his first 2021 start against the New York Giants on Thursday night.

Ryan Fitzpatrick Placed On Injured Reserve

The Washington Football Team placed quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick (hip) on Injured Reserve on Tuesday afternoon. The move is not surprising as the veteran signal-caller is expected to be out about six to eight weeks due to a hip subluxation that he suffered in the team's Week 1 loss to the Los Angeles Chargers. Taylor Heinicke, a 28-year-old journeyman in his second year with Washington, will be the team's starter going forward. Kyle Allen is set to be his backup. The loss of Fitzpatrick is a tough loss to swallow for several fantasy players on Washington. Star receiver Terry McLaurin should still be viewed as a high-end WR2, but he may have a harder time providing consistent fantasy stats with Heinicke behind center.

Ryan Fitzpatrick Expected To Miss 6-8 Weeks

Updating previous reports, Washington Football Team quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick (hip), who is going on Injured Reserve on Monday, is expected to miss six to eight weeks with the hip injury he suffered in the Week 1 loss to the Los Angeles Chargers, according to a source. Fitzpatrick suffered a hip subluxation on Sunday when a Chargers defender fell hard on top of him during a tackle. Taylor Heinicke, who took over for Fitz in Week 1, will be the starter moving forward, with Kyle Allen serving as his backup. Heinicke was solid against the Chargers, going 11-for-15 for 122 yards passing and a touchdown, and he'll have QB2 appeal in leagues that start two QBs. If Heinicke plays well in the next six to eight weeks, there's no guarantee that the veteran Fitzpatrick will get the starting job back.
