Lions | Mixed results for Matthew Stafford

Sun, 30 Oct 2016 13:42:21 -0700

Detroit Lions QB Matthew Stafford threw for 240 yards and a touchdown in a 20-13 loss to the Houston Texans on Sunday, Oct. 30.

Fantasy Tip: The touchdown catch was only 1 yard to Theo Riddick, so chances are Stafford didn't net you too many fantasy points. Houston is a tough place to play, so chalk this game up to a slump after three strong outings.

Wed, 19 Oct 2016 21:23:06 -0700

Detroit Lions QB Matthew Stafford will play in his 100th game in Week 7 against the Washington Redskins.

Over his past 14 games dating back to last season he has completed 65.9 percent of his passes with 33 touchdowns and six interceptions.

Fantasy Tip: Stafford should be in line for another strong week against a Redskins pass defense which ranks 18th in the NFL, allowing 242.5 yards per game through the air. He ranks eighth in the NFL in yards per game (274.7) and is tied for third with 14 passing touchdowns. Stafford has emerged as a top-end QB1 in all fantasy leagues.

Sun, 02 Oct 2016 13:29:54 -0700

Detroit Lions QB Matthew Stafford threw for 213 yards and was intercepted twice Sunday, Oct. 2, in a 17-14 loss to the Chicago Bears.
