Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
He has been a train wreck as a NFL quarterback the last two years, but finished 11th in 2012 and 7th in 2013 among fantasy quarterbacks. He's a fantasy QB1 as long as he is paired with All-Pro WR Calvin Johnson. The addition of free agent WR Golden Tate and rookie TE Eric Ebron could help his value even more in 2014. Stafford has reportedly looked great early in training camp.
Flacco was a disappointment in fantasy, but the Ravens improved their offensive line and added WR Steve Smith in free agency. I don't see Smith having a mega impact at his age and Flacco has no value in the running game with too many consistency issues throwing the ball.
  
Brandon Funston
Yahoo! Sports
346 pass yards, 2 TDs in W1 and played w/ high efficiency (0 TOs, only 32 passes); DET oozing skill position talent
 
  
Tozzi Brothers
Legion Report
We like Stafford to take an even bigger step forward this year. With the acquisition of Golden Tate and Eric Ebron, Stafford adds more sizzle to an arsenal that already included Calvin Johnson, Reggie Bush and Joique Bell. Reggie Bush stated that the Lions New Offensive Scheme is “exactly the same” as the one he learned with the Saints. With new OC Joe Lombardi aboard (Previously spending his last 7 seasons in New Orleans) look for him to bring an up-tempo look to the Detroit Offense in 2014. During Lombardi’s time in the NOLA, their offense ranked: 1st, 2nd, 6th, 1st, 1st & 4th in Total Offense. We’re buying the Detroit Offense and recommending Stafford as a no doubt QB for 2014.
Flacco has adopted the Eli Manning label … confusing many beginner fantasy players with the idea that because he has won a Super Bowl, he’s going to be successful in my fantasy lineup. Wrong!
  
James Hatfield
Hatty Waiver Wire Guru
He can be a turnover machine, but he does put up over 4,000 yards and around 30 TDs a year.
 
  
Jeff Boggis
Fantasy Football Empire
Draft with confidence, especially after Manning, Rodgers, and Brees are off the board.
 
  
Chet Gresham
The Fake Football
The addition of Golden Tate is going to be a huge one for Stafford, but getting a more efficient offense from Joe Lombardi is going to help even more.
 
  
Jon Collins
Fantasy Sports LR
In the only three full seasons in his career, Stafford is averaging 4885 yards and sees a massive upgrade in context this season. Pass catching backs, improving TE/WR positions, Calvin Johnson presumed healthy... Detroit should still be in its share of shootouts, leaving lots of scoring for Stafford and co.
 
  
Tom Schriner
FFLockerRoom
We really believe that Stafford makes the jump this year into a prime-time fantasy football quarterback. We can't give him a top-tier rating just yet, but with Calvin Johnson and company to throw to and a backfield loaded with running backs who can catch the ball, Stafford should produce explosive numbers. He comes in at a positive 0.375 on the FFLockerRoom True Proficiency Game Average. http://fflockerroom.com/2014/07/25/2014-fantasy-football-draft-preparation-quarterback-proficiency/
 
  
Sablich Brothers
The NY Times
Can only get better with new OC Joe Lombardi, a legitimate WR2 in Tate and new TE Ebron.
How much will an aging Steve Smith really help?
  
Pat Fitzmaurice
The Football Girl
Numbers have been volume-dependent, but little reason to think volume will ebb.
Just an average Joe. A very ordinary QB2.
  
KJ
Fantasy Team Advice
Stafford has all the weapons to be one of the top QB's in the game today, the only question is can he bring his ridiculous TO ratio down (52 total INT's the past 3 seasons). He should finish right around 5000 passing yards and 30 TD's this season, as new OC Joe Lombardi will ask him to throw just as often as years past.
Average QB is as nice a description as we can give here.. Shouldn't be high on anyone's radar
  
Kevin Roberts
Breaking Football
There is another level for Stafford if he can refine sloppy mechanics. Until that happens, he will struggle with consistency. Still, he's easily a top-10 fantasy QB.
Flacco has the arm to do magical things, but does he have the system or weapons? Last year showed us he's probably not meant to throw the ball 40+ times a game.
