Ryan Fitzpatrick's fantasy days numbered as Bills are determined to find another franchise QB

Thomas Campbell-US PRESSWIRE

For the second time in two weeks, the Bills have expressed no confidence in Ryan Fitzpatrick and are determined to draft another QB in 2013. We break down the fantasy implications.

Buffalo Bills QB Ryan Fitzpatrick finds himself in hot water again. According to the Buffalo News, GM Buddy Nix reiterated his desire to find a new franchise QB, saying that he intends to draft one in April. ""Let me be as honest as I can, I think we really need to address it this year...we do need another one, and we need to do it this time."

Fitzpatrick has thrown for 1,674 yards, 15 TDs and nine INTs through eight games this season.

Fantasy Impact: Fitz' starting job could be safe this season, but this is the second time in a week that the GM openly talked about replacing him. Nix is clearly not happy with his $62 million investment. He could very well be released in the offseason.

The Bills take on the Patriots this week, and Fitz remains little more than a high-risk QB2 in fantasy.
