Summary

Quarterback Rank: #12All Players: #106
Stafford saw a big dip in numbers last season, finishing 15th in quarterback scoring. His numbers were marred by a lack of scores, finishing with 24 touchdowns. He still threw for good yardage totals, though, having more than 4,000 once again. He had just two three-touchdown games, though, and four games without a touchdown. Stafford is in the prime of his career in a good offense. His numbers can rebound next year, throwing to two of the best receivers in the game. Stafford has a huge arm, moves around the pocket well and is a big, strong kid. He will force some passes, though, and needs to improve his footwork some despite being in the league several seasons. His consistency as an elite NFL quarterback hasn't been there yet but he has shown flashes. The Lions are pass-first team and will continue to put the offense in Stafford's hands. He is their franchise quarterback and starter for the next several seasons.
FANTASY OUTLOOK
Stafford is a solid No. 1, capable of posting huge numbers. He will rebound from last year and finish with much better fantasy numbers. He is a top-10 fantasy quarterback. Remember, he'll be in his second season in this offense and should benefit from getting more familiar with the plays. Stafford carries a little more risk than your usual fantasy No. 1 but his upside is very big with the talent around him. He can throw for around 5,000 yards and 30-plus touchdowns.

Detroit Lions QB Matthew Stafford is hopeful he still has a hot hand after he exploded for 20 touchdowns, to only four interceptions, and a 105.1 passer rating in nine games with offensive coordinator Jim Bob Cooter last season. 'We just see (football) the same way, talk about it the same way and that's not to say we like the same stuff all the time,' Stafford said of Cooter. 'He likes some stuff that I'm not comfortable with, and I'm comfortable with some stuff that he doesn't like, and that's the way it goes. You pick your battles and go from there.'

Detroit Lions QB Matthew Stafford said he knew the NFL was 'wearing on' retired WR Calvin Johnson. 'Not to say that I expected it, but I wasn't shocked,' Stafford said Friday, March 25. 'I've known Calvin for seven years and know the effort and the attitude that he plays with, and it takes a toll on people. And he was catching quite a few passes and getting hit quite a bunch, and so it takes a toll.'
