Lions | Detroit not expecting to rest starters

Tue, 26 Dec 2017 10:21:34 -0800

Detroit Lions head coach Jim Caldwell told reporters Tuesday, Dec. 26, he has given no consideration to resting his starters in Week 17 versus the Green Bay Packers - including players such as QB Matthew Stafford, WR Golden Tate and WR Marvin Jones.

Fantasy Tip: Caldwell is coaching for his job and while it seems highly unlikely management will put any weight on his ability to win a meaningless game against a fellow non-playoff team, he apparently isn't leaving it to chance either. As such, it appears Stafford, Tate and Jones will all be reasonable plays in a plus-matchup for owners who need to concern themselves with such things in Week 17.

Lions | Matthew Stafford so-so in Week 16

Sun, 24 Dec 2017 16:13:15 -0800

Detroit Lions QB Matthew Stafford completed 19 of his 35 pass attempts for 203 yards, one touchdown and one interception in Week 16 against the Cincinnati Bengals.

Fantasy Tip: Stafford's team was eliminated from the playoffs with the disappointing performance, and Stafford likely eliminated a lot of his fantasy owners with this egg laying as well.

Lions | Matthew Stafford scores twice in Week 15

Sat, 16 Dec 2017 17:27:09 -0800

Detroit Lions QB Matthew Stafford threw 25-for-33 for 237 yards and two touchdowns in his team's 20-10 Week 15 win over the Chicago Bears.

Fantasy Tip: The Lions have to hope Stafford stays healthy, as they are riding his arm to a potential playoff berth. He only missed on eight attempts Saturday, so precision doesn't appear to be too much of an issue. Stafford remains a strong QB1 heading into next week.

Lions | Matthew Stafford not on injury report

Thu, 14 Dec 2017 12:09:54 -0800

Detroit Lions QB Matthew Stafford (hand) fully participated in practice Thursday, Dec. 14, and is not on the injury report for Week 15.

Fantasy Tip: Stafford has thrown for at least 250 yards in seven of the last eight games but has four touchdowns and four interceptions over the last three games. He will be facing a solid Chicago Bears pass defense but could still be a low-end No. 1 quarterback in deeper leagues.

Lions | Matthew Stafford full go again

Wed, 13 Dec 2017 14:44:39 -0800

Detroit Lions QB Matthew Stafford (hand) participated fully in practice Wednesday, Dec. 13.

Fantasy Tip: Stafford toughed it out last week after banging up his throwing hand the week prior, so he'll be good to go after another week of recovery and practice. The Chicago Bears have defended the pass well this year, but Stafford remains a viable QB1.

Lions | Matthew Stafford fully practices

Tue, 12 Dec 2017 15:00:09 -0800

Detroit Lions QB Matthew Stafford (hand) was a full practice participant Tuesday, Dec. 12.

Fantasy Tip: Stafford shook off a banged up hand last week and came through for fantasy owners. He should be fine with another week of recovery behind him but faces a tough test in the Chicago Bears, who have been one of the best pass defenses in the league this year. Still, Stafford is in the QB1 conversation for Week 15.

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.
