When you put Stafford's fantasy career alongside his peers, he's essentially the same quarterback as Matt Ryan. The difference? Stafford hasn't had a play-caller to bring out the best in him for quite some time and it's crushed his fantasy upside. Welcome to L.A. where you'll be working with Sean McVay, whose offense has been handicapped with Jared Goff under center. Could this be the change Stafford needed to reach the next level? The only concern would be that the Rams defense is so good, we won't get the volume needed for a pocket passer like Stafford. He has upside to finish as a top-10 option, but knowing his limitations as a rusher (with back problems), he likely won't reach much higher than the QB8-QB10 range.We have no idea who will start for the Broncos to start the season, and while it's likely going to be Lock, he needs to improve drastically, because he'll now have a much shorter leash. The Broncos have one of the most talented groups on offense and are just a quarterback away from exploding. Can Lock take the year three leap? To this point, he's averaged just 6.6 yards per attempt with 23 touchdowns and 18 interceptions through 18 games.
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Perennially one of the most underrated QBs in the NFL, Stafford now has a new home in LA. On a prominent stage, I truly believe we're about to see Stafford ascend this season into the top-5 QB conversation from the national media due to the numbers he could put up in this offense with Sean McVay. With the weapons he has around him now, plus the creative play-calling, Stafford ascending to a top-5 fantasy QB isn't out of the realm of possibilities. His presence is going to mean fantastic things for this offense and he could end up being one of the best picks you make in fantasy this year due to his upside. The health is still a concern, but we know that Stafford's going to gut through nearly anything and give it his all. He's one of my favorite draft picks at the QB position later on in 2021 drafts.

Sleepers and Busts
Stafford gets a change of scenery, leaving the Motor City to move out West. The Rams should be involved in some NFC West shootouts. He should do decent if he can stay healthy. He was pretty banged up in 2020. You have to figure he'll have a jump in his step now that he's playing for a contender. The biggest concern is the Rams line. LT Andrew Whitworth is 39. This group as a whole needs to do a better job for the Rams offense & Stafford to reach their potential.Teddy Two gloves heads to the Mile High City where it will be an open competition between him and Drew Lock for the starting QB gig. That's never a good sign for the incumbent QB. The Broncos lost LT JuWann James to injury in the offseason. He's out for the year. Make mistake that will hurt Denver's offense which is full of firepower at WR and TE. Even if Lock wins the starting gig, he'll be under heavy pressure from the opposing teams' pass rush. It's hard to see much upside here. Avoid
Brendan Tuma
FantasyPros
Since 2017 the Lions are 27th in play action rate while the Rams rank first. During this same time frame the Lions are 27th in motion rate while the Rams rank seventh. This is the change in offensive environment that Matthew Stafford is about to encounter. As for Sean McVay, Stafford is undoubtedly the best quarterback he has worked with as a head coach. The pairing could create an extreme amount of fantasy goodness for everyone involved, and it's the type of potential outlier situation to buy into for fantasy purposes. Heightening Stafford's floor/ceiling is the fact that LA is returning all five OL starters from a season ago. 
Joe Pisapia
FantasyPros
Matthew Stafford deserves some wins. For 12 years, Stafford has toiled away with mostly awful Lions teams. Now, he goes to sunny Los Angeles with a boy wonder offensive coach. He also brings a creaky back and a recently operated on thumb, but Stafford finds himself in a unique situation. He has a second act to show everyone how underrated he indeed has been for the last decade. Since 2011, Stafford has thrown for 4K yards 8 times. One would think he should be a lock for that in '21 as long as health cooperates. Unfortunately, the Rams gave up Jared Goff, a '21 3rd round pick, and their 1st rounders in '22 & '23. If this experiment fails, the Rams could implode quickly, considering their cap issues and lack of early draft picks the next two seasons. However, I'm inclined to think Stafford will find new life with Sean McVay and this talented offense. As a result, Stafford should be considered a low-end QB1 in fantasy this season. 
Tim Petropoulos
BRoto Fantasy
Matthew Stafford has been one of the best QBs on football for so long, he's been taken for granted. Through multiple head coaches, coordinators, supporting casts, and injuries, Stafford has still produced year in and year out. Now, with the mind of Shawn McVay calling the plays, I think its finally time for Matt Stafford to earn his respect in a big way.The weapons are in place, now Drew Lock needs to fight off Teddy Bridgewater for the starting job. Don't count him out just yet, coming into his third year its time for him to turn the corner or it will be time for the Broncos to turn to a new QB.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Stafford plays in one of the toughest division on a team that loves to run the ball. He is still going to be fantasy relevant with the Rams, but he is probably more of a QB2 than QB1.
