Winter rye should not need to be fertilized. However, it will die out when the temperatures get hot and then resprout in the fall when the temperatures cool down. I'm going to assume you overseeded a warm season turfgrass such as bermuda. The bermuda will green up when the temperatures get warm. When it does green up you can fertilize it with a 3-1-2 ratio of NPK such as a 21-7-14 or similar fertilizer. Good luck with your lawn.
