For the first time, the Buffalo Bills are publicly hinting that QB Ryan Fitzpatrick may not be the answer. GM Buddy Nix, in his weekly radio segment on WGR 550, was surprisingly candid about whether he considered finding a new QB "starting over":
"Listen, we have said from day one, that we want to draft a good young quarterback. I don't want to leave here without a franchise guy for the future in place. I have not said that before but I'm saying it now because its fact."
Fitzpatrick has struggled ever since signing his seven-year, $62 million extension last season, throwing 32 interceptions in his last 23 games.
Fantasy Impact: The beginning of the end for Fitz? GM's don't openly talk about drafting a franchise QB when they already have a $62 million man on the roster.
Whatever the case, Fitz has been way too wild for fantasy owners to trust on a weekly basis. I recommend benching him against the Texans' defense this week.
