Summary

Quarterback Rank: #5All Players: #47
Stafford had another up and down season for the Lions but his overall numbers were good in the end. He had 31 total touchdowns and threw for more than 4,600 yards. He had 11 games with multiple touchdowns but finished the season with one or fewer score four straight games. And his completion percentage was down some, completing 59 percent of his passes. He gets a fresh start with a new offensive coordinator this season, which might not be a bad thing for Stafford. 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. We wouldn't be surprised if he sees an uptick in production with a new coaching staff in place He is certainly capable of being a big-time fantasy producer. 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.

comments about Matthew Stafford

Notes

Detroit Lions QB Matthew Stafford showed improved footwork in his ability to climb the pocket when he was pressured in Week 1 against the New York Giants Monday, Sept. 8, his first start in the Jim Caldwell era. Sloppy footwork has been part of Stafford's problems in the past. He also seemed to make a conscious effort not to force passes to receivers that weren't open. Stafford finished the victory going 22-for-32 for 346 yards, two touchdowns, no interceptions and a rushing touchdown.
Fantasy Impact: Stafford has a good chance to post career best numbers this year.
