Ryan Fitzpatrick Needs to be Plucked From the Wire

Heading into the 2017 season, we believed that Ryan Fitzpatrick was best suited to be a backup quarterback, mentoring a youngster. So when he landed in Tampa Bay behind developing star Jameis Winston, it seemed an ideal gig for him.

Fitzpatrick was solid in his role last year, but with Winston suspended for the first three games of 2018, the bearded veteran has quickly reminded the football universe that it wasn’t that long ago that he enjoyed some decent seasons as a starting quarterback. We’re talking about a smart player that’s proven he can be a leader, although he’s been plagued by inconsistency over his career.

Thanks to some early season Fitzmagic, he’s become one of the top Fantasy waiver wire picks heading into Week Three. Hell, did you see what this dude wore to the postgame press conference?

All Fitzpatrick has done so far is complete 21 passes for four touchdowns in a Week One shootout win in New Orleans, and then come home and nearly match his excellence in beating the Super Bowl Champion Eagles, 27-21. He’s the first QB in Tampa Bay history with back-to-back four-TD games.

We’ve never seen him look this good, by a long shot. Fitzpatrick is playing to Tampa Bay Head Coach Dirk Koetter’s mentality by throwing deep downfield at will.

With a Week Three matchup a home against a very suspect Steeler defense (that allowed a Patrick Mahomes-led offense to generate six scores), Fitzpatrick has one final shot to make his claim that he should keep the starting QB job once Winston returns for Week Four.

There are a few things to remember about Fitzpatrick. He’s been at his best in his career in September, and he’s always been better at home. Other than Saturdays, he saves his worst showings for Mondays, and he’s played poorly in five career games against the Steelers.

The idea that Fitzpatrick is suddenly an elite pass caller may be very difficult to wrap your head around, but if the Bucs believe in him, that’s all that matter, right? For his part, he’s just there to win football games (see video below).

If nothing else, think about this: with four touchdown passes of 50 or more yards through his team’s first two games, Fitzpatrick tied Joe Namath’s NFL record, set 46 years ago.

Winston owners should be very, very worried.

The Wire Troll: Frankie Montas Returns to Majors

September 15, 2018 | By RotoRob | Comments (0)
Seeking a Dynasty league option at the keystone corner? Take a look at what Solak — the Yankees’ second rounder in 2016 — has done in his first full season at Double-A. Last year he made an impressive jump to High-A, gaining valuable experience before a late promotion to get his feet wet at Double-A. Solak hasn’t hit for quite as high an average this season, but has racked up the total bases while showing a very intriguing power-speed combination. This is a kid worth watching.

Video Game Review: Dragon Quest XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age

September 7, 2018 | By Herija Green | Comments (0)
Although it won’t go down among the best RPG stories, Dragon Quest XI does more than enough with its plot to keep you moving forward, and the constant metering out of rewards and loot encourages no shortage of secondary exploration and completing of side missions. There’s tons of content here, a good bit of which opens up after you finish the main game.

The Wire Troll: Kolten Wong Returns to Action

September 7, 2018 | By RotoRob | Comments (0)
Wong will probably need offseason surgery on his knee, but he’s off the DL now and is worth adding for the stretch drive. Remember that after an awful start he kept improving once May ended. In June, Wong started to show signs of life, flashed nice extra-base pop in July and then tore it up in August (915 OPS) before getting hurt. He’s actually been healthier this year compared to last season and has a career best in ISO. A superb contact hitter, Wong’s major issue has been staying on the field. Still, the Hawaiian native has shown he can hit for a better average (.285 last year) and his play since July proves that. Just bear in mind that he’s unlikely to play every day, so is mostly an NL-only league asset for now.
