News: Head coach Bill O'Brien once again stood by Fitzpatrick as the team's starting quarterback, the Houston Chronicle reports. Impact: O'Brien is having to answer questions weekly about his starting quarterback due to Fitzpatrick's uneven performance through seven games. The coach said Fitzpatrick is the starter, but also mentioned backup Ryan Mallett in his response, indicating that "we're going to continue to work with both of these guys in practice, and we'll see how it improves."(RotoWire, )

News: Fitzpatrick put up decent numbers Monday. Impact: Fitzpatrick was 21 for 32 for 262 yards with two TDs and one INT. He also carried five times for 16 yards. Next week he faces the Titans.(STATS, 2:53pm)
Mon. Oct 20, 2014
News: Fitzpatrick completed 21-of-32 passes for 262 yards, with two touchdowns and an interception, in Monday's 30-23 loss to the Steelers. Impact: Fitzpatrick had a tipped pass picked off during the Steelers' 24-point barrage at the end of the second quarter. He otherwise played a decent game, though the plodding Houston offense is still struggling to sustain drives, especially when forced to play from behind. For a second straight week, one of Fitzpatrick's wide receivers lost a comeback-killing fumble in the fourth quarter, but the Texans did bounce back to pull within seven points in the final two minutes. Despite having solid weapons around him, he hasn't recorded a 300-yard or three-touchdown game so far this season.(RotoWire, )

News: Head coach Bill O'Brien reaffirmed that Fitzpatrick is Houston's starting quarterback, the Houston Chronicle reports. Impact: O'Brien has been questioned about Fitzpatrick's disjointed play through six weeks, but said he remains confident in the signal-caller. The coach added that he feels there's improvement needed in several phases of the game, including better pass protection. Fitzpatrick was sacked five times in the loss to Indianapolis, and O'Brien indicated that he feels his quarterback has been good when not under duress.(RotoWire, )

News: Fitzpatrick had his share of problems Thursday. Impact: Fitzpatrick threw for 212 yards and a touchdown but was sacked five times, and fumbled it away on the Texans' final offensive play. He needs to play better next time out in a Monday night showdown with Pittsburgh.(STATS, 1:46pm)
Thu. Oct 9, 2014
News: Fitzpatrick completed 15-of-23 passes for 212 yards and a touchdown, with one lost fumble and no interceptions in Thursday's 33-28 loss to the Colts. Impact: The fumble was a bad one that ended the Texans' attempt at a game-winning drive. Fitzpatrick otherwise played a decent game, but he wasn't nearly as efficient as his statistics indicate, as he took five sacks and struggled on third downs. The Texans quite clearly prefer to run the ball, with Fitzpatrick averaging just 26.7 pass attempts per game. Even facing a weak Pittsburgh defense, he won't be a great option next week.(RotoWire, )

News: Fitzpatrick (calf) is listed as active for Thursday's game against the Colts, the Texans' official site reports. Impact: With an average of 211 passing yards and a 5:6 TD:INT ratio through five games to date, Fitzpatrick isn't a high-percentage fantasy play these days, but he's out there for those in deeper formats who need him this week.(RotoWire, )
Mon. Oct 6, 2014
News: Fitzpatrick was 16 of 25 for 154 yards with an interception and no touchdowns Sunday against Dallas. Impact: He is no more than a bye-week replacement in fantasy circles.(STATS, 08:40am)
