Atlanta's defense is bad and the Lions are probably getting Calvin Johnson back for their London game. All signs are pointing to Stafford having an excellent fantasy day.

The Falcons are 13th against fantasy quarterbacks the last 3 weeks, but Stafford should still be a QB1 against this struggling defense.
