Week 17 Outlook
Matthew Stafford shut down in Seattle
Lions quarterback Matt Stafford managed to complete just 18 of 32 passing attempts against the Seahawks for 205 yards.
Stafford's once-inspiring season ended in disappointing fashion as he went touchdown-less in the Lions' loss in their wild-card round against the Seattle Seahawks. He was hurt by drops, tough officiating, and a very good Seahawks defense. While Stafford has obviously matured as an on-the-field quarterback his fantasy value has dropped off from his 2011 peak and, with just adequate offensive weapons at his disposal, Matt Stafford figures to be a low-end standard league starting QB in 2017.
Matthew Stafford has nice outing in loss
Matt Stafford completed 26 of 41 passes against the Green Bay Packers for 374 yards, two touchdowns, and one interception.
Stafford cleared 300 yards passing for the first time since Week 13, and, combined with his touchdowns, gave fantasy owners decent production against the Packers. It's clear Stafford's finger injury impacted his play down the stretch as he threw interceptions in four consecutive games to end the season. Fantasy owners shouldn't let recency bias pollute their opinion of the talented quarterback, however, as, when healthy, he was one of the league's best quarterbacks and an MVP candidate. Matt Stafford should be considered a fringe top 10 quarterback heading into the fantasy off-season.
Matthew Stafford saves fantasy night with rushing TD
Matt Stafford completed 26 of 46 passing attempts for 260 yards against the Cowboys Monday night, tossing one interception and adding a one-yard rushing touchdown. Stafford also, unfortunately, lost one fumble near Dallas's end zone in the fourth quarter.
After a fast start, it was a rough outing for Stafford and the rest of the Lions' offense in Dallas. As with last week against the Giants, his injured middle finger didn't appear to be much of a factor, but the Cowboys' unique defensive looks were, leading to his interception and keeping the Lions from scoring a touchdown through the air. Stafford figures to have a big Week 17 at home against the Packers for the NFC North division title.
Matthew Stafford a Week 15 bust
Detroit Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford completed 24-of-39 passes for 273 yards, no touchdowns, and one interception in the Lions' Week 15 loss to the New York Giants.
Stafford doesn't have his dislocated middle finger to blame for this one as he was throwing tight spirals all game. He just missed Golden Tate on what could have been two long touchdowns, and his fourth-quarter pick in the end zone sealed the Lions' fate on this day. Consider Stafford a QB2 next week on the road at the Cowboys.
Matthew Stafford expects to play through finger injury
Matthew Stafford told reporters that he expects to play through his injured finger. He suffered an injury to his right middle finger in the team's Week 14 game against the Bears.
Stafford told reporters that he's played through worse injuries, though that's not exactly comforting to fantasy owners, especially considering we're into the heart of the fantasy playoffs. Stafford has been inconsistent, and he's taking on what's become a difficult Giants' defense in a Week 15 game that could feature ugly weather.
