Fantasy Impact:

Clearly, Stafford is not right. He's been dealing with his back injury for some time now. However, despite the fact, the tough-guy signal caller is expected to be on the field to play the spoiler in a tough matchup against the Vikings, whose playoff hopes are on the line. With a depleted supporting cast, plus the aforementioned injury of his own, Stafford is best left on fantasy benches in Week 16. Stafford is on pace to finish with his worst statistical season since an injury-shortened 2010 campaign.
