Buccaneers' Ryan Fitzpatrick: Nearly leads comeback in Week 6
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fitzpatrick completed 22 of 32 passes for 290 yards with three touchdowns and two interceptions in Sunday's 38-33 loss to the Cardinals. He also rushed three times for 10 yards.

Fitzpatrick entered the contest in place of Jameis Winston (shoulder) with 5:31 remaining in the second quarter and the Bucs down by a 24-0 margin. The veteran immediately led a 15-play, 70-yard drive that ended with a fourth-down misfire into the end zone from the Cardinals' 5-yard line, but it was a harbinger of the success that Fitzpatrick would have in moving the offense down the field. Tampa's comeback began in earnest with an eight-play, 75-yard march in the third quarter that culminated in an four-yard Fitzpatrick-DeSean Jackson end-zone connection, and it subsequently included touchdown passes of 10 and 37 yards to Cameron Brate and Mike Evans, respectively. While Fitzpatrick also hurt the cause with a pair of picks, he certainly helped keep the prospect of an unlikely win viable until a failed onside kick in the game's waning moments. With Winston's status for Week 7 murky, the possibility Fitzpatrick logs at least one start in his stead remains very much in play for the time being.

Buccaneers' Ryan Fitzpatrick: Efficient showing in third preseason game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fitzpatrick completed seven of 11 passes for 55 yards with no touchdowns or interceptions in Saturday's 13-9 preseason loss to the Browns.

Jameis Winston played through the first series of the second half, leaving Fitzpatrick with a modest amount of playing time. The veteran was in a fairly heated battle with Ryan Griffin for the No. 2 quarterback job, but the latter's shoulder injury in the preseason opener against the Bengals essentially clinched the job for Fitzpatrick. Undrafted free agent Sefo Liufau should see the majority of snaps in Thursday's exhibition finale against the Redskins as per Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times, but Fitzpatrick may start the game and play at least one series.

Buccaneers' Ryan Fitzpatrick: Showing better grasp of playbook
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fitzpatrick improved his command of the Bucs offense as training camp unfolded, Jenna Laine of ESPN.com reports.

There really wasn't doubt that the cerebral veteran would adjust to the new playbook, but there's apparently been a marked difference as training camp has unfolded. Fitzpatrick has been exhibiting the telltale signs of an improved grasp of the system, namely, consistently quicker releases and better timing with his receivers. While the Bucs naturally would prefer not have to see Fitzpatrick take a snap this season -- as that would likely only come to pass in the event of a Jameis Winston injury -- it's imperative to have a backup capable of stepping in and keeping the offense functional.

Buccaneers' Ryan Fitzpatrick: Lackluster effort in Friday's loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fitzpatrick completed six of 13 passes for 45 yards with no touchdowns and one interception in Friday's 23-12 preseason loss to the Bengals. He also gained 15 yards and scored a touchdown on two rushes.

Fitzpatrick entered the contest as the second quarterback, taking over for starter Jameis Winston on the third series. While he was generally lackluster through the air, the veteran used his legs to scamper into the end zone from six yards out with 2:51 remaining in the first half. Despite the generally tepid effort, the 34-year-old signal caller is undeniably in a position to benefit from the shoulder injury that fellow backup Ryan Griffin suffered in Friday's contest, and accordingly, he re-entered the game following the latter's exit.

Buccaneers' Ryan Fitzpatrick: Battling for backup QB job
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fitzpatrick continues to battle Ryan Griffin for the No. 2 quarterback job during training camp, Jenna Laine of ESPN.com reports.

Fitzpatrick has his competition outdistanced by a country mile when it comes to experience, but Griffin has outplayed him at times in practices. However, the battle to serve as the backup to Jameis Winston is likely to extend through the final preseason games, as both Fitzpatrick and Griffin are projected to see plenty of reps with which to make their case for the gig.
