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.
 
  
Kevin Roberts
Breaking Football
In London, so whatever that means. He's pretty average without a healthy Megatron but Falcons D can make anyone a star.
ATL has been bad and they're not at home this week so pretty tough to trust a team that is 0-4 outside of Georgia.
  
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
The Falcons are 13th against fantasy quarterbacks the last 3 weeks, but Stafford should still be a QB1 against this struggling defense.
