Latest Update Fitzpatrick could still be benched for backup QB Ryan Mallett Mon Nov, 03, 05:00 PM
Owns pretty good power, thanks to very good bat speed and the ability to hit to all fields. That also helps him hit for a solid average, too.
Flaws: : His swing is a bit long, so he needs to cut down on his strikeout total to maximize his power. Is also poor defensively in the outfield, with a weak arm.
Fitzpatrick is an average quarterback at best as he's thrown for 11 touchdowns and eight interceptions this season. The Texans would be smart by giving Mallett a chance to play. He can't do any worse than what Fitzpatrick is doing. Analyst: Mark Kaplan
Fitzpatrick completed less than half of his passes, but connected with Arian Foster and DeAndre Hopkins for touchdowns. Fitzpatrick is more of a game manager than a quarterback, which makes him a QB2 in fantasy leagues. Fitzpatrick and the Texans go on bye in week 10.Analyst: Colby Conway
The formula remains pretty intact for Houston. If Fitzpatrick doesn't turn the ball over, they have a great chance at winning. Fitzpatrick had a turnover free game, but he wasn't very efficient as he barely completed more than half of his passes. A week nine match up with the Eagles awaits Fitzpatrick, and he is a no. 2 quarterback for that match up.Analyst: Colby Conway
If nine targets Monday, a 32.6-percent target rate overall and a 50-percent red zone target rate aren't "getting the ball to Andre," then this is going to be one hell of a second half. Johnson is already the most targeted receiver on the Texans and Fitzpatrick looks for him regularly. If he's now talking about more looks to Johnson, then you may want to think about trading for him.Analyst: Howard Bender
