25-Year-Old SafetyS
Pittsburgh Steelers
2021 Fantasy Outlook
Fitzpatrick made a significant impact during his first full season with the Steelers in 2020 with a team-leading 79 tackles (60 solo), as he was on the field for 99 percent of the team's defensive snaps. The 24-year-old is slated to spend at least two more years in Pittsburgh after the team exercised his fifth-year option during the offseason. In addition to his stellar tackling numbers, Fitzpatrick also racked up four interceptions, a forced fumble and 11 pass defenses last year, so he's a solid IDP option heading into 2021.

Another interception against Ravens

December 6, 2021
Fitzpatrick recorded nine tackles (seven solo) and an interception in Sunday's 20-19 win over the Ravens.
ANALYSIS
Fitzpatrick was unable to haul in any interceptions across the first nine games of the season, but he's now recorded picks in back-to-back weeks. He ended Baltimore's opening drive with his interception in the end zone during Sunday's narrow victory and also led the Steelers in tackles. The 2018 first-rounder has recorded a career-high 82 tackles (56 solo) with two interceptions, three pass defenses and a forced fumble across his first 11 appearances of the season.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2020
2019
2018
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.
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.
