Why is it bold?
Fitzpatrick has started a total of 36 games in his six-year career and has thrown for only 44 touchdowns. For Fitzpatrick to do so, he will have to throw for at least 27, which, based on last year's numbers, that would be up there with Aaron Rodgers, Matt Ryan and Matt Cassel. He also plays for the Bills.
Why it will happen
Ryan Fitzpatrick was not a bad quarterback last season, throwing for 3,000 yards and 23 touchdowns. With a healthy Roscoe Parrish, Lee Evans and an emerging Steve Johnson, Fitz has all of the weapons to put up even better numbers this year.
What also helps this bold prediction is the Bills defense. The defense has a hard time stopping offenses, so the Bills will find themselves in plenty of shootouts.
Ryan Fitzpatrick may not be Jim Kelly, but a 28-touchdown pass season could open some eyes. Not a Hall of Famer, not even a Pro Bowl quarterback, but he has the potential to be a decent starter in this league.
