  • Two Touchdowns Save Matthew Stafford in Week 2

    Matthew Stafford was solid on Monday night, completed 15 of 21 passes for 122 yards and two touchdowns. It was a pretty modest night in terms of passing attempts for Stafford, as the Lions relied more on their run game than usual. However, Stafford rewarded fantasy owners with two passing touchdowns, keeping his fantasy line respectable despite the limited yards. Stafford now has tossed six touchdowns in his first two games, an encouraging sign for fantasy owners after he only had 24 passing touchdowns last season. Expect to see an increase in passing attempts next week against the Falcons, making Stafford a QB1 heading into the third week of the season.

  • Matthew Stafford Throws Four Touchdowns in Week 1

    After throwing a pick-six on the opening drive, Matthew Stafford settled in and posted a very solid line, going 29-for-41 for 292 yards and four touchdowns and leading the Lions to a comeback victory over the Arizona Cardinals. Stafford's touchdown totals were down last year, so it is encouraging to see him throw for four in week 1. The running game looked pretty bad for the Lions, which while bad for the team could be good for Stafford fantasy owners as the will need to throw the ball in order to keep the offense moving. Expect Stafford to be another strong play next week against the Giants on Monday night.

  • Matthew Stafford Signs Record-Breaking Extension

    The Lions and quarterback Matthew Stafford agreed to a record-breaking 5-year, $135M extension which will keep their franchise quarterback in Detroit through 2022. The 29-year-old Stafford is getting $92 million in guaranteed money, likely opening up possibilities for larger paydays for players like Aaron Rodgers and Matt Ryan in the future. Stafford will hope to use his arsenal to throw for over 4,000 yards yet again and will try to build upon the low touchdown totals from a year ago. He can confidently be drafted as a consistent, if not super exciting, QB1 in 2017.
