I know what most fantasy owners think when they see the name Ryan Fitzpatrick: "Why would I play a mediocre quarterback from a mediocre team who always puts up mediocre numbers?"
Pretty redundant, isn't it? However, these pleonasms don't change the fact that Fitzpatrick has had a great season so far. He hasn't racked up a ton of yards, but he's done a great job where it counts the most: scoring.
Fitzpatrick has seven touchdowns to one interception over his first two games. He doesn't have the best matchup fantasy-wise, but the Patriots can be had through the air, as evidenced by Vincent Jackson's 10-catch, 172-yard performance in Week 2.
I don't know how deep your fantasy league is, but even in my 16-team league, Fitzpatrick wasn't drafted to be a starter. At this point, though, if you have him on your bench, you should go ahead and make the switch. He's a scoring machine.
