New York Jets v Buffalo Bills

Hours after releasing Matt Hasselbeck, the Tennessee Titans have found a new backup to Jake Locker.

Adam Schefter reports the Titans have signed former Bills starting QB Ryan Fitzpatrick to a two year deal.

Fitzpatrick came under heavy criticism for his play last season. In 15 starts the Harvard grad threw for 3,400 yards, 24 TDs and 16 Interceptions. Financial details of the deal weren’t released.

Buffalo Bills v New England Patriots

The Buffalo Bills have released quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick according to Adam Schefter. Fitzpatrick has been the Bills starting quarterback since the 2009 season though he was benched in favor of Trent Edwards for the first two games of the 2010 season. He was signed to a controversial six year, $59 million contract in October of 2011.

 

 

Fitzpatrick became the subject of intense criticism in Buffalo after a lackluster 2011 which saw him lead the league with 23 interceptions and a 2012 that wasn’t much better, throwing for just 24 touchdowns and 16 interceptions.

 

First impressions are often very misleading in fantasy. At first glance, it appears starting Michael Turner against a Giants run defense that allows the 9th fewest fantasy points to running backs, is a bad idea. However, a Giants team that has many holes in their secondary, won’t be focused on Turner. New York will be scrambling to cover Roddy White, Julio Jones & Tony Gonzalez, leaving Turner with a favorable number of defenders in the box. That’s why I’m giving Turner the Green Light to be in all fantasy lineups this week. The same can’t be said for Reggie Wayne and Ryan Fitzpatrick.

Like sands through the hourglass, so are the days of our lives.

For those of you out there questioning my use of a soap opera title sequence from 1965 – and not the one referenced in the title – give me a second, there is a method to the madness.

Week 1 ended with a bit of a thud on Monday night. Thankfully Chris Berman has been put in a box and shipped to Bristol to do what he does best – call baseball games? The biggest takeaway came from M&T Bank Stadium.
