Ryan Fitzpatrick may not be considered fantasy chalk at this point, but the Buffalo Bills quarterback just keeps turning in solid performances. He had another on on Sunday, throwing two touchdowns and 244 yards in a losing effort.
After a hot start to the season, Fitzpatrick's fantasy numbers hit the brakes leading up to Week 6. Through the season's first three games he averaged just over 280 yards per outing, accumulating nine touchdowns. Fitzpatrick failed to reach 200 yards in weeks 4 or 5, with just one touchdown total during the span.
Fitzpatrick's stock has slipped as a result. He came in 9th in Yahoo! Sports' latest fantasy rankings, placing him firmly on the starter/bench border, depending on the matchup. What looked like one of the great sleeper pickups of the year early on has seemingly dropped back to join the means.
