MIAMI (AP) — Ryan Fitzpatrick will become the Miami Dolphins‘ caretaker quarterback.The well-traveled veteran agreed to terms Sunday on an $11 million http://www.tennesseetitansteamonline.com/a.j.-brown-jersey , two-year contract as a replacement to Ryan Tannehill and a placeholder until the Dolphins can draft their franchise quarterback. That could happen next month, but is more likely in 2020.The 36-year-old Fitzpatrick has a 50-75-1 record as a starter for seven NFL teams. He started seven games for Tampa Bay last year and had a passer rating of 100.4, which ranked ninth in the league.The Dolphins traded Tannehill on Friday to the Tennessee Titans in a deal that also involved draft picks. Tannehill became Miami’s starting quarterback as a rookie in 2012 and never took a snap in the postseason.After Miami went 7-9 last year, owner Stephen Ross fired coach Adam Gase, ordered a youth movement and acknowledged it may take several seasons to build a winner.Fitzpatrick could become Miami’s 20th starting quarterback since Dan Marino retired following 1999 season. The Dolphins and new coach Brian Flores have the 13th choice in the April draft, and might devote their first-round pick to a QB for only the second time since taking Marino in 1984.Fitzpatrick has thrown for 190 touchdowns and 29,357 yards, but has been inconsistent and turnover-prone. He entered the league in 2005, and his longest stay with any team was with the Buffalo Bills in 2009-12.He had four 400-yard passing games last year for the Buccaneers but yielded the starting job to Jameis Winston in November.Fitzpatrick joins two other quarterbacks on the Miami roster, Luke Falk and Jake Rudock. Neither has started in the NFL.With moves made since the hiring of Flores http://www.tennesseetitansteamonline.com/amani-hooker-jersey , the Dolphins are given a 200-1 chance to win next season’s Super Bowl, worst in the NFL. A poor record would mean a high first-round draft pick in 2020, and they’re well-positioned to splurge in free agency a year from now.They’re still in the market this offseason for help on the offensive and defensive lines and at cornerback. The landscape surrounding fantasy football’s running back position has dramatically changed since last season.Last season’s top overall pick, Rams RB Todd Gurley, is being selected in the second round of 12 team drafts because of his troublesome knee.Fantasy football drafts are further muddied as Ezekiel Elliott and Melvin Gordon continue to hold out because of contract disputes.You’ll still need to focus on RBs early in drafts. Per consensus draft rankings in points-per-reception (PPR) scoring formats, seven of the first 12 picks are RBs.Many teams will once again use the running back by committee approach.Your strategy in mid-to-late rounds should be to select RBs with upside and a direct line to a starting job.Saquon Barkley, Christian McCaffrey and Alvin Kamara are usually the first RBs taken in drafts.Barkley is the cornerstone of the Giants‘ offense. He had 2028 total yards last season.McCaffrey scored 13 total TDs and led all RBs with 107 receptions for the Panthers last season.Kamara caught 81 passes and scored 18 total TDs for the Saints last season. Will new Saints RB Latavius Murray cut into Kamara’s TD production? It’s unlikely. Kamara shared the backfield with Mark Ingram for 27 games the past two seasons and still scored 25 TDs.As of this writing, Elliott is the fourth overall pick in most drafts. While many speculate he’ll be signed by Week 1 if you draft Elliott, limit your risk. Draft backup Tony Pollard as well.Gordon’s holdout could force him to miss regular-season games. He’ll still cost you a second-round pick. If you draft Gordon, draft backup Austin Ekeler. If you miss out on Ekeler Taylor Rapp Jersey , grab Chargers RB Justin Jackson in the latter rounds.Cardinals RB David Johnson’s average draft position (ADP) has been slowly rising (ADP 5). He had the 11th highest fantasy point per game (FPPG) average last season despite running behind one of the worst offensive lines in football.Some feel it hasn’t improved much, yet optimists believe Johnson will have more opportunities in new head coach Kliff Kingsbury’s fast-paced offense.Jets RB Le’Veon Bell hasn’t played an NFL down since the 2017 season. He proved that he’s in tremendous shape by running the Jets’ conditioning test twice on the first day of training camp. Bell has the potential to be one of the top backs in fantasy.James Conner, Bell’s replacement in the Steelers’ backfield, had the seventh-highest FPPG average last season. Some speculate the Steelers may limit his workload, but Conner should continue to thrive in the Steelers’ RB friendly offense.Despite being a second-round pick, when Gurley is on the field, he’ll likely deliver first-round type production. However, his workload will be managed. Rookie Darrell Henderson has struggled this preseason. Malcolm Brown, who often goes undrafted, has value as an alternative Gurley backup.Joe Mixon Shareef Miller Jersey , Nick Chubb, Dalvin Cook and Leonard Fournette are typically drafted in the second round of 12-team fantasy football leagues.Mixon will be running behind an injury-depleted offensive line. However, the Bengals want to run the ball more this season, and he’s talented enough to overcome his line’s limitations.Chubb, became the Browns‘ lead back in Week 7, and averaged 5.2 yards per carry (YPC). Chubb’s workload will decline once Kareem Hunt returns from his eight-game suspension, but he’ll still have a significant role in the offense.Injuries cost Vikings RB Dalvin Cook 17 games of his first two NFL seasons. When healthy he can do it all, but if you roster Cook, roster his backup, Alexander Mattison.Fournette has first-round talent but he’s averaged just 3.7 YPC in his first two seasons. Fournette’s a high-risk Germaine Pratt Jersey , high-reward pick.The Chiefs have a high-powered offense, but beware of drafting Damien Williams. He has just 183 carries in his five-year career and coach Sixth-round draft pick Darwin Thompson has looked impressive this preseason.Offensive scheme should also be considered when targeting fantasy RBs. The Seahawks, Titans and Ravens executed the highest percentage of run plays last season. Chris Carson should again lead the team in carries, but Rashaad Penny should have an increased role in the Seahawks offense. Both have stand-alone fantasy value.Titans RB Derrick Henry led all RBs with 625 rushing yards the last five weeks of last season. He’s been dealing with a calf injury this preseason, but if healthy and if the Titans fully commit to expanding his role, he’ll likely outperform his 20 ADP.Ravens RB Mark Ingram (ADP 21) will have to fend off Gus Edwards, rookie Justice Hill and QB Lamar Jackson for rushing opportunities, but he should be the Ravens’ busiest back, and a productive RB2.Josh Jacobs (ADP 19) should be the NFL’s most-productive rookie back. He’ll likely lead the Raiders backfield in carries and deliver RB2 production.Bears rookie David Montgomery (ADP 23) is a, multi-talented back. His role in the Bears’ offense should expand as the season progresses http://www.bengalsauthorizedshops.com/authentic-ryan-finley-jersey , but with Mike Davis and Tarik Cohen in the mix it may take a while.Bills rookie Devin Singletary (ADP 49), may provide better value than Montgomery. With a backfield featuring aging veterans Frank Gore and LeSean McCoy, and T.J. Yeldon, Singletary has a clearer path to a lead back role than Montgomery.Eagles rookie Miles Sanders (ADP 30) will have to compete for touches against Jordan Howard, Darren Sproles and Corey Clement as part of a backfield notorious for using a committee approach.
