Ryan Fitzpatrick struggles through fantasy day for Titans

The Titans quarterback couldn't get much of anything going in Sunday's win. We break down the fantasy implications.

Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

After looking like a surprisingly viable fantasy contributor from Weeks 10-13, Tennessee Titans quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick has had two brutal fantasy games in his last three. The second came Sunday in the Titans' 20-16 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Fitzpatrick was an acceptable real-life quarterback Sunday, only turning the ball over once and leading the team on a game-winning drive early in the fourth quarter. But for fantasy owners, he threw for only 181 yards on 17 of 26 passing and had only one touchdown. His nine fantasy points barely beat out his eight points in Week 14, though the two were sandwiches around a 30-point fantasy day in Week 15.

Fantasy impact: When Fitzpatrick averaged 18.5 fantasy points in that earlier four-week stretch, he started to look like he might have some fantasy relevance. But in his last four, he's had 15 or fewer three times, single-digit fantasy points twice, and has matched his seven touchdowns with seven interceptions, and four of those touchdowns all came in that Week 15 game.

Basically, Fitzpatrick is once again not worth a look in fantasy, even next week against a poor Houston defense.
