Gone are the days where Stafford will throw 650 and even 700 passes, so he won't be that top 5 fantasy QB, but there is plenty of reason to grab him as your second, or better yet, third QB in a SuperFlex league. He has two quality receivers and has no threat to lose his job. He has finished as a top 10 fantasy QB in three of the last four seasons after all.Dalton doesn't have the strongest track record, but he is still a starting quarterback with enough job security that you can trust him as your third option in a SuperFlex league. What's more, is that with a full season of A.J. Green and now a new offensive mind taking over in Zac Taylor, there may be upside for him to finish in the top 15.

2018 was a year to forget for Stafford, as he posted the worst numbers since his rookie season. He'd been about as predictable as they come for eight years, posting QB1 numbers at least 37.5 percent of the time in every season (while hitting 50-plus percent twice), but hit just 12.5 percent of the time in 2018. Did the new coaching staff hurt him that much? He's been a better fantasy quarterback throughout his career than Ben Roethlisberger has been, though you wouldn't know it by their draft positions.Did you know that 2018 was the first year Dalton didn't finish as a top-18 fantasy quarterback? It's because he's been durable and has had little-to-no chance of being benched. The early reports out of camp say that Ryan Finley has looked pretty bad, meaning Dalton will once again be entrenched as the starter. If you're in a 2QB league, he'll suffice. If you're in a standard 1QB league, he's streaming material in good matchups.
