Although Fitzpatrick is less likely to start a full season than players like Flacco, Manning and even Haskins, his gunslinger mentality makes it reasonable to take a chance on his upside despite the risk. Even without much in the way of weapons in Miami, he would make for a top 20 QB in most games he starts.
