  1. To my eyes, Graham hasn't looked the same since his injuries earlier in the year. Not bad, but just not as dynamic...and, therefore, more likely to put up some stinkers here and there. I know the 'nobody is 100%' cliche at this point of the season, but it looks like he might be less 100% than others...would not be at all shocked if we get some revelations about the severity of injuries at the end of the season.
  2. I believe Gore also has a history of fading in the 2nd half of seasons regardless of the QB.
  3. I fear the same: Why not test Brohm and play for pick 1.01 when you're 0-10?Because Fitzpatrick is currently the #2 rated QB in the league right now and looks every bit the part of a franchise QB. Why not see if he can keep it up and find out if he's a legit franchise type QB? If he is, then they don't need to draft a QB at the top of the first round, they can focus on their defense or OT.still: it's the Bills... sorry! touche

If he is, then they don't need to draft a QB at the top of the first round, they can focus on their defense or OT.Also, because going for the #1 pick may be what fans and armchair GMs want to see, but coaches want to keep their jobs and teams want to sell tickets and other merchandise. If Fitz keeps playing at a high level why in the world would you bench him to put in an unproven player who has already been cut by the team that drafted him? I think the league might take an interest at that point because that would be very close to throwing games. Oh, and in a lot of drafts no one wants the #1 pick because of the money involved. We'll probably have a rookie salary cap in place, but that's far from assured at this point. Plus, I don't know how this draft grades out, but it sounds like there are going to be multiple first round QBs and probably some disagreement over who is best. Plus, wouldn't the Bills be in a much better position if Fitzpatrick proves himself to be a good QB and then they can use their first round pick on another position that has better odds of panning out (I believe QBs have the highest bust rate for first round picks)? So, in conclusion, for fantasy purposes it seems like the only question is whether Fitzpatrick can sustain playing at a high level. Benching him for anything other than poor performance seems far-fetched.
