Detroit Lions WR Matthew Stafford was benched late in the third quarter of the Week 5 game against the Arizona Cardinals, down 35-7. QB Dan Orlovsky replaced him.
Fantasy Tip: It's uncertain if the winless Lions plan to make a quarterback change, but it's bad news for the FantasyScore outlook for Stafford ($6,300, 12.6% of cap) going forward. Orlovsky ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) might be worth grabbing just in case, in formats which require two starting signal callers.

Detroit Lions QB Dan Orlovsky appears to have a solid lead over QB Kellen Moore for the No. 2 quarterback job this season.
Sat, 18 Jul 2015 15:03:33 -0700
Detroit Lions QB Dan Orlovsky may lose his job as the Lions' backup quarterback. QB Kellen Moore has a chance to win the job after taking a large share of the second-team reps this offseason. Orlovsky ranked No. 29 in an NFL.com ranking of all 32 backup quarterbacks.
Fantasy Tip: Orlovsky hasn't appeared in a game since 2012 with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and he has just a 57.1% career completion percentage. If anything should happen to Matt Stafford this season, Orlovsky won't be a fantasy option for Stafford owners.
