Lions | Matthew Stafford tosses three TDs

Sun, 12 Nov 2017 13:55:01 -0800

Detroit Lions QB Matthew Stafford completed 17 of his 26 pass attempts for 249 yards, three touchdowns and one interception in the Week 10 game against the Cleveland Browns. He also rushed four times for 17 yards.

Fantasy Tip: Stafford continues to be an outstanding fantasy producer, posting his sixth multi-TD game in nine starts and he has really turned it up lately in yardage. Stafford is averaging 336.3 yards per game through the air over the past four outings.

Lions | Matthew Stafford nearly perfect on MNF

Mon, 06 Nov 2017 21:00:12 -0800

Detroit Lions QB Matthew Stafford completed 26 of 33 passes for 361 yards and a pair of touchdowns in the team's Week 9 victory Monday, Nov. 6, against the Green Bay Packers. It was also the highest QB Rating (132.4) he's produced in a game this season.

Fantasy Tip: Stafford has been on fire as of late, as he's now totaled a whopping 1,096 yards over his last three games -- the most of any quarterback in the league over that span. Clearly, he's in a groove right now and it would be awfully tough for any fantasy owner to leave him on the bench in the weeks ahead. Also of note, Stafford has thrown an interception in only two of eight games this year.

Lions | Matthew Stafford throws for 423 yards

Sun, 29 Oct 2017 20:51:55 -0700

Detroit Lions QB Matthew Stafford completed 27 of 45 passes for 423 yards, no touchdowns and no interceptions in the Week 8 loss against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Fantasy Tip: It was actually the third-highest yardage total by an NFL offense without scoring a touchdown. That's not the type of statistic fantasy owners want to see. The Lions will look to re-discover the end zone in Week 9 on Monday Night Football in Green Bay.

Detroit Lions QB Matthew Stafford (ankle) faces the New Orleans Saints in Week 6, and in his last two meetings with the Saints, he has completed 52 of his 67 passes for 595 yards and five touchdowns.

Fantasy Tip: Stafford is expected to play through an ankle injury this weekend, and his recent history of success against New Orleans could continue. Only the New England Patriots have allowed more yards per pass attempt than the Saints this season.
