Matthew Stafford Ready For Football After False Positive

Detroit Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford has been cleared to play football after a COVID-19 test resulted in a false positive. Stafford commented, "I want to play football. I want to be out there", in addressing a situation he referred to as "scary". The veteran quarterback was on his way to one of the best seasons of his professional career last year, passing for 2,499 yards and 19 touchdowns in only eight games. But a fractured back ended his season Stafford and his fantasy value will be weighed down by the specter of that injury heading into fantasy drafts.

Matthew Stafford Consistent Under Pressure

Detroit Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford played in just eight games last season because of injury, but he remained consistent under pressure when he was on the field. His passer rating of 84.2 while under pressure and his plus-2.2 percent completion rate above expectation are impressive considering that he threw more than 30 percent of his under-pressure throws into tight windows. Stafford's combined passer rating under pressure of 83.8 is the third-best mark of any qualified quarterback since 2016, trailing just Matt Ryan and Alex Smith. The 32-year-old was on pace for a great finish in 2019 if he hadn't gotten hurt, and many expect him to pick up right where he left off in 2020. Stafford is a borderline QB1 and makes for a great fantasy backup.

Matthew Stafford Not Concerned By Trade Rumors

Detroit Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford hasn't given much thought to trade rumors earlier this year and has always prepared as if he'd be the team's quarterback in 2020 and for many years to come. The rumors started with the possibility that the Lions would draft Alabama's Tua Tagovailoa at No. 3 overall. Stafford also put his suburban Detroit home on the market on Thursday for $6.5 million. But the family putting the house on the market has nothing to do with trade rumors surrounding Stafford earlier this year. His back, which cost him the second half of last season, is fully healthy. The veteran QB spent time throwing with Kenny Golladay and Danny Amendola before the coronavirus pandemic. He's gotten in workout sessions recently with rookies D'Andre Swift and Quintez Cephus and tight end Isaac Nauta. If back to full healthy, Stafford could pick up where he left off as a solid QB1 for fantasy owners in 2020.
