The Bills hired David Lee to be the QBs coach and tasked him with working on Fitzpatrick's mechanics. Fitzpatrick is already starting to see the work on his footwork pay dividends. During a press conference on Tuesday, Fitzpatrick was asked if the mechanical tweaks are starting to become second nature. "Yeah, it has. The other thing though is that it is just an answer maybe for some of my consistency issues," Fitzpatrick said. Reported by Profootballtalk.com
Fantasy Football Diehards Line:
As PFT's Josh Alper notes, the goal is to cut down on the turnovers that plagued Fitzpatrick last season. While a better defense should allow the offense to take fewer dangerous chances, Fitzpatrick's play down the stretch last season was inconsistent enough that you can't blame all the problems on game situations. But if he can play more like he did the first seven games last year, when he threw for 1,739 yards, 14 touchdowns and seven interceptions, Fitzpatrick would provide Fantasy owners with great value as a QB2. Remember, even with his struggles down the stretch, the Bills offense improved from 28th in points and 25th in yards to rank 14th in both categories. And it's a unit that returns almost completely intact.
