Ryan Fitzpatrick went 18-for-32 passing for 153 yards during the Buffalo Bills' win over the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday. Fitzpatrick entered the game leading the NFL in touchdown passes, but was held without a score for a second straight game against a stout defense.

Fitzpatrick has now thrown for 1,210 yards, 12 touchdowns and eight interceptions on the season. He will look to get back on track against a weak Tennessee Titans secondary at home in Week 7.

Fantasy Impact: Fitzpatrick had to face the San Francisco 49ers and the Cardinals in consecutive games, explaining his recent struggles. He still isn't a consistent enough quarterback to recommend as a weekly starting option in standard fantasy leagues, however.

Fitzpatrick is a solid backup if your league starts just one quarterback, and is worth starting consideration if you are in a bind due to a bye week or if your regular starter faces a particularly grueling defensive matchup. Otherwise, Fitzpatrick should stick to your bench.
