  • Matthew Stafford Worked with QB Coach in the Offseason

    Despite posting a career high in yards last season, Detroit Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford worked with a QB coach this offseason to try to improve on some aspects of his game. Stafford is working specifically on the touch passes, an aspect of his game that he has yet to fully develop. Stafford has always has a strong arm, but an improvement in his touch passes would be a big boost for him as he heads into his ninth NFL season. Stafford still projects as a solid QB1 despite lower touchdown totals last season. Fantasy owners who wait to grab a QB until after round seven should target Stafford, as he is a rock-solid fantasy contributor.

  • Lions, Matthew Stafford Still A Ways Away on Contract

    The Detroit Lions and quarterback Matthew Stafford still have "a long way to go" on contract negotiations, but neither side is too concerned. "I'm confident we'll get something done," reports general manager Bob Quinn. Stafford is expected to garner a contract higher than the record-breaking deal signed by Derek Carr earlier in the offseason. His contract situation should not impact his ability on the field, where Stafford projects as a QB1 despite low touchdown totals from last season.

  • No Extension Yet for Matthew Stafford

    Matthew Stafford and the Detroit Lions are still actively talking about a potential long-term extension for the quarterback, but there is still a pretty substantial gap. There is still not a timetable for discussions to cease, even as training camp is getting underway. Lions owner Bog Quinn is confident a deal will get finalized, but each day that goes by gets us closer to the start of the NFL season, where talks may cease. Stafford is likely going to become the league's highest paid player, and his yearly salary could cost over $25 million per season. He was a top-10 fantasy QB last year, but his lack of touchdowns make him a low-end QB1 especially without a big play receiver at his service.
