2019 Fantasy Outlook
Keep an eye on the status of Reshad Jones and perhaps downgrade Fitzpatrick to more of the DB30 range if Jones is still on the roster, but either way Fitzpatrick should provide DB2 utility following a strong rookie season as a CB/S crossover. If Jones is off the team, affording Fitzpatrick more safety looks, then the second-year pro could push for the top 10 among DBs. Fitzpatrick's production should improve by surpassing 1,000 snaps after playing 946 as a rookie, and his shutdown coverage portends playmaking upside, especially if the Miami offense improves.

Makes history in debut
SPittsburgh Steelers
September 22, 2019
Fitzpatrick had five tackles (four solo) and an interception in Sunday's 24-20 loss to San Francisco.
ANALYSIS
Fitzpatrick was acquired from Miami this past week and his presence was felt in his first game with Pittsburgh. He intercepted a pass in the first quarter and then forced a red zone fumble in the second quarter that was recovered by Devin Bush, making him the first Pittsburgh player with an interception and forced fumble in the opening half of a game since 2008 (James Harrison). Fitzpatrick now has two forced fumbles in his last two games and faces Cincinnati -- with five fumbles already -- in Week 4.

2018 Fantasy Outlook
Picked 11th overall by Miami in the 2018 NFL Draft, Fitzpatrick was considered one of the most pro-ready defensive backs in the entire draft, and should immediately slot in to the starting rotation. Considering Fitzpatrick's versatility, the 21-year-old should play a rotational role in the Dolphins' defense this season.
