Fitzpatrick completed 20 of 30 passes for 210 yards and two touchdowns during Sunday's 30-10 win over the Bills.

EDGE Analysis

Fitzpatrick greatly regressed from his excellent 2015 season, so much so that it would be quite surprising if he was brought back to New York next season after signing a one-year, $12 million contract this past summer. Fitzpatrick finished the year with 2,710 yards and 12 touchdowns, but it was his 18 turnovers that ultimately doomed the Jets and will likely force him to find another team to try and reach the postseason for the first time in his career.

Head coach Todd Bowles has named Fitzpatrick the Jets' starting quarterback for Sunday's game versus the Bills, Brian Costello of the New York Post reports.

EDGE Analysis

Fitzpatrick yielded to both Geno Smith and Bryce Petty under center on separate occasions this season, only for a torn ACL and labrum tear, respectively, to end each quarterback's campaign. Although the Jets can only impact their 2017 draft position at this point, Bowles will stick with the known entity (Fitzpatrick) rather than turn to unproven rookie Christian Hackenburg in Week 17. Fitzpatrick hasn't displayed anything resembling a mastery of the position this season, as evidenced by his last four appearances. During that run, he's completed just 53.3 percent of his passes (40-for-75) for 517 yards and two touchdowns versus four interceptions.

Fitzpatrick is poised to start Sunday's game against the Bills following Bryce Petty's (shoulder) placement on injured reserve, Eric Allen of the Jets' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

Fitzpatrick has appeared in all but two games this season, 10 of them starts, but he's already accumulated the second-most interceptions (17) in a given campaign of his 12-year career. Playing out the string of a one-year, $12 million contract, it'll be interesting to see if he'll indeed take the reins from Petty, especially with nothing but pride (and draft position) to play for in the regular season finale. If head coach Todd Bowles opts to look toward the future, as he has with Petty down the stretch, Christian Hackenburg could earn his first live NFL reps this weekend.

Fitzpatrick completed just eight of 21 pass attempts for 136 yards and two interceptions in Saturday's 41-3 loss to the Patriots.

EDGE Analysis

Fitzpatrick entered the game after Bryce Petty (shoulder) was forced to leave due to injury, but he was unable to generate much of anything in a miserable offensive performance for the lowly Jets. While Petty will continue to be evaluated throughout the week, it seems likely that he will be held out next week against the Bills, opening the door for Fitzpatrick to make what is likely his last start for the franchise as they close out a disappointing season.

Fitzpatrick could get the starting job back if Bryce Petty's chest injury is serious enough to hold him out, ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Fitzpatrick came on in place of Petty on Saturday against the Dolphins, completed half of his 10 attempts for 31 yards while also getting picked off. The Jets' passing game really struggled with Fitzpatrick earlier this season, and it's been just as bad with Petty, so a change under center isn't likely to make a drastic difference with two games to play.

Fitzpatrick replaced an injured Bryce Petty (undisclosed) in Saturday's game against the Dolphins.

EDGE Analysis

Petty was removed after getting sandwiched between Ndamukong Suh and Cameron Wake. He's questionable to return, so Fitzpatrick is likely to finish out the game.

With Bryce Petty in line to start the final four games of the season, Fitzpatrick is expected to move to the bench, Andy Vasquez of The Record reports.

EDGE Analysis

Coach Todd Bowles made the announcement following Monday's loss to the Colts, a game that Fitzpatrick was benched in favor of Petty after completing just five of his 12 pass attempts for 81 yards to go along with an interception. Since Fitzpatrick is currently on a one-year contract with New York, he heads into the final weeks of the season with an uncertain future.

Fitzpatrick will continue to start at quarterback next Monday against the Colts.

EDGE Analysis

Fitzpatrick keeps hold of the Jets' starting gig after tossing a pair of touchdowns in Sunday's game against the Patriots. Although he also fumbled late, Fitzpatrick had the team in a position to win, which surely influenced Bowles' decision to retain him over backup Bryce Petty.

Jets coach Todd Bowles was noncommittal on whether Fitzpatrick would retain New York's starting quarterback job following Sunday's loss to Patriots, ESPN's Rich Cimini reports.

EDGE Analysis

Fitzpatrick generally fared well in Sunday's game, tossing a pair of touchdowns and completing 22 of 32 passes while nearly knocking off the division-leading Patriots. Although his fumble on New York's final offensive drive ended his team's hopes of victory, Fitzpatrick seemingly played well enough to earn another start if Bowles intends to continue with the quarterback that gives the Jets the best chance of winning. However, with the long-term evaluation of Bryce Petty to also consider, Bowles' decision on his starter for next Monday's game against the Colts remains a noteworthy situation.

Fitzpatrick completed 22 of 32 passes for 269 yards and two touchdowns during Sunday's loss to the Patriots. He also rushed twice for one yard but lost a fumble on the Jets' last offensive series.

EDGE Analysis

Fitzpatrick was solid throughout the game before his costly fourth-quarter fumble, completing passes to eight different players, including touchdown passes to Brandon Marshall and Quincy Enunwa, the latter of whom finished with a career-high (and game-high) 109 yards. The performance was Fitzpatrick's first multi-touchdown effort since Week 1, and while many fantasy continue to clamoring for backup Bryce Petty, it seems more likely that head coach Todd Bowles will continue to start Fitzpatrick.
