#8 vs. PHI 

The Lions won their second straight game against Oakland Sunday afternoon behind a solid outing from Stafford. He finished 22-for-35 for 282 yards in addition to 31 yards rushing and a score.

Fantasy Impact: This marks only the second time all season Stafford failed to throw a touchdown pass, but he made up for that with his rushing TD. Stafford has a favorable matchup in Week 12 on at home on Thanksgiving day against an average Eagles defense.

Aaron Rodgers – QB, Green Bay Packers Welcome back to the real world with the rest of us, Aaron.

Ultimately, the decision of which player to start is largely determined by the composition of your roster (as well as your league's settings). As an example, Matthew Stafford is listed below as a "start" for Week 8. And I'd feel very comfortable going into Week 8 with him as my starting quarterback. That said, he may be a sit for your team.

For Matthew Stafford, it's hard to image 2015 being any more of a roller coaster ride than it has been.
