Lions | Matthew Stafford will have more control of the offense

Detroit Lions QB Matthew Stafford will be given more freedom to adjust plays before the snap this season, and he is looking forward to the opportunity. "It obviously kinds of gives you the chalk last," Stafford said. "And that's what you're looking for when you play quarterback."

Fantasy Tip: The Lions have plenty of weapons on offense so giving Stafford the ability to change plays at the line should allow him to exploit some favorable matchups as they arise. While Stafford will have to show he can make the proper decisions, the idea of him having more control of a new high-powered passing attack should get the attention of fantasy owners. He has a good chance to be a midrange QB1 this season.
