Ryan Fitzpatrick, QB, Houston Texans – Alright, so if you read my Fantasy Football Start ‘Em, Sit ‘Em, Sleepers article from week 14, you may remember me saying not to fall head-over-heels for Texans quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick.

The former Harvard graduate was fresh off a career game in which he threw for six touchdowns, but I wasn’t ready to buy it at the time.

That was then however, and this is now.

Since regaining the starters role in week 13, Hill has completed 71.2 percent of his throws for an average of 246.5 yards, three touchdowns, and no interceptions.

Last week, Fitzpatrick faced the Jacksonville Jaguars and while his game wasn’t quite the performance of a week prior, it was still a solid outing.

Now, looking ahead, Fitzpatrick gets the Indianapolis Colts and their No. 25 ranked pass defense followed by the Baltimore Ravens and their 31st ranked unit.

Ryan has solid match-ups ahead, and is now worth considering if you need QB help.
