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.
When I watch RGIII, I see a quarterback with bad footwork that can't figure out how to get out of bounds when he takes off down the field. Also, Jay Gruden does not want to call a ton of designed running plays this year. I don't see RGIII as a refined enough passer to finish in the Top 10 nor do I see him as durable enough to make it there as a runner.
  
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.
RG3 has plenty of upside, but may have some growing pains in Gruden's new offense. Much of his past fantasy greatness stemmed from his rushing ability and that could be curtailed this season, but he'll also have a healthy Garcon, DJax and Reed to help him out.
  
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/
***Griffin continues to struggle in the preseason as the conversion to a pocket passer has been tougher than what people had expected.***Two words for you, Andy Dalton. Two more words for you, Jay Gruden. RG3 is said to be looking better than ever via several different media outlets and sources so health should not be an issue. Add in the fact that Griffin has a very solid group of receivers to throw to led by former Eagle DeSean Jackson and Pierre Garcon and you can't help but get excited. But OC Gruden will be the cherry on top of this sundae. He turned the Red Rifle into one of the best fantasy quarterbacks last season and I predict that Griffin will enjoy similar success. Just don't expect nearly the rushing yards as he had in his first year in the league.
  
Matthew Hill
Fantasy Team Advice
 
Griffen is healthy, surrounded by play makers and is being coached by pass-happy Jay Gruden. Look for RG3 to have a monster year.
  
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.
RG3 is now almost a year and a half removed from his ACL injury and reportedly “looks like a different QB.” Washington will have DeSean Jackson running deep routes alongside Pierre Garcon while TE Jordan Reed (who has the Aaron Hernandez ability) dominates the middle of the field. Washington signed Pass-Happy Coach Jay Gruden this offseason, who led Bengals Andy Dalton to a Top 5 Fantasy QB finish last season. Expect a major bounce back year for RG3.
  
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.
 
  
Jeff Boggis
Fantasy Football Empire
Draft with confidence, especially after Manning, Rodgers, and Brees are off the board.
 
  
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.
 
  
Sablich Brothers
The NY Times
Can only get better with new OC Joe Lombardi, a legitimate WR2 in Tate and new TE Ebron.
Gruden's attempt to mold him into a pocket passer a failure thus far.
  
Pat Fitzmaurice
The Football Girl
Numbers have been volume-dependent, but little reason to think volume will ebb.
He's looked terrible in the preseason. Small sample size, but ...
  
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.
With some new weapons and an offense not as focused on the run Griffen's upside is very solid.
  
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.
RG3 is past his knee injury and he's in an offense that should maximize his talents. If Jay Gruden can make Andy Dalton an elite fantasy passer, RG3 is primed for success.
