2020 Fantasy Outlook
One of the few positives in an otherwise disappointing 2019 season for the Steelers was the trade for Fitzpatrick, who played like a human highlight reel after two games with the Dolphins. Whether he is playing cornerback or safety, Fitzpatrick has a nose for the ball, logging two forced fumbles, three fumble recoveries, five interceptions and two touchdowns last season. Although he may not match his Pro Bowl performance, Fitzpatrick is a solid IDP option who is under contract until 2023. Read Past Outlooks

To be green dot for defense
SPittsburgh Steelers
October 22, 2020
Fitzpatrick and Vince Williams will serve as the key communicators for the Steelers defense now that Devin Bush (knee-ACL) is set to undergo season-ending surgery, Mike Prisuta of the team's official site reports.
ANALYSIS
Having played 100 percent of Pittsburgh's defensive snaps this season, Fitzpatrick was a seeming fit to shoulder the responsibility of relaying play calls to the defense. Fitzpatrick wasn't quite as impactful over the first quarter of the regular season this year compared to his All-Pro campaign of 2019, but he did come up with a game-breaking contribution during a Week 6 win over Cleveland, registering a 33-yard pick-six off of Baker Mayfield.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2019
2018
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.
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.
