Lions | Drew Stafford throws for 381 yards, TD

Sun, 10 Dec 2017 19:07:34 -0800

Detroit Lions QB Matthew Stafford completed 36 of his 44 pass attempts for 381 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions in the Week 14 game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Fantasy Tip: Stafford checked out early in Week 13 due to a hand injury, but he didn't seem to show any ill effects of the injury in this one. If you normally rely upon him in fantasy leagues it appears safe to keep using him going forward.

Lions | Matthew Stafford will be in uniform

Sun, 10 Dec 2017 08:53:47 -0800

Detroit Lions QB Matthew Stafford (hand) is officially active for the team's Week 14 game.

Fantasy Tip: Stafford suffered the injury last week but likely will receive his normal workload against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He will be a risky option because the injury is to his throwing hand but can be a low-end No. 1 fantasy quarterback before of the matchup.

Lions | Matthew Stafford likely to start Week 14

Sun, 10 Dec 2017 06:02:39 -0800

Detroit Lions QB Matthew Stafford (hand) is expected to start Week 14's game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Stafford appears to be on pace to start his 109th consecutive game and should be viewed as a low-end QB1 option in all fantasy formats due to the favorable matchup. He was a limited participant in two out of three practice sessions during the week and had been listed as questionable on the injury report but owners should have no reservations about starting him.

Lions | Matthew Stafford limited in practice

Fri, 08 Dec 2017 14:42:00 -0800

Detroit Lions QB Matthew Stafford (hand) was listed as a limited participant in practice Friday, Dec. 8, and he is considered questionable for Week 14 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Fantasy Tip: Stafford has healed very quickly from the hand injury he suffered late in the Week 13 game in Baltimore. If he starts he is a very nice fantasy option against the league's 31st-ranked pass defense. Tampa has allowed 267.3 yards per game, most in the NFC, and 19 touchdowns with 10 or more pass plays of 40 yards allowed.

Lions | Matthew Stafford recovering quickly

Fri, 08 Dec 2017 09:20:27 -0800

Detroit Lions QB Matthew Stafford (hand) appears to be on the right track in terms of his right hand injury healing enough for him to play in Week 14 versus the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Fantasy Tip: At this point, it would be a surprise if he didn't go. After struggling to stay healthy over the first two years of his career, Stafford hasn't missed a game in his last seven seasons. If he plays, he'll be in the low-end QB1 discussion.

Lions | Matthew Stafford limited

Thu, 07 Dec 2017 13:18:28 -0800

Detroit Lions QB Matthew Stafford (hand) was a limited participant in practice Thursday, Dec. 7.

Fantasy Tip: Stafford really doesn't want to miss this matchup against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The scallywags are among the worst fantasy defenses in the league this year and the Lions are usually forced to pass early and often in order to stay in games. If Stafford is active then he should be started.

Lions | No practice for Matthew Stafford on Wednesday

Wed, 06 Dec 2017 10:12:25 -0800

Detroit Lions QB Matthew Stafford (hand) was dressed for practice but did not participate Wednesday, Dec. 6.

Fantasy Tip: Head coach Jim Caldwell characterized Stafford as "not out of the woods yet" in regards to his bruised right hand earlier Wednesday, but the general feeling seems to be he'll find a way to play in a plus-matchup against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 14. He will be in the low-end fantasy QB1 discussion for the contest if he suits up.

Lions | Matthew Stafford not a sure thing

Wed, 06 Dec 2017 07:50:40 -0800

Updating previous reports, Detroit Lions QB Matthew Stafford (hand) is "not out of the woods yet," with his bruised right hand, according to head coach Jim Caldwell. Caldwell added the injury isn't insignificant, but the nerves and feeling in Stafford's hand are progressing.

Fantasy Tip: Stafford has a solid matchup against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. However, with his history of struggles through hand injuries, it's not out of the realm to consider a one-week play if you're in the first round of the playoffs.
