Matthew Stafford tosses four TDs in loss

Matthew Stafford completed 30 of 45 pass attempts for 364 yards, four TDs, and one INT in the Lions’ 42-30 loss to the Vikings on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

Stafford popped off for a huge game in a showdown with the Vikings, as he tried to keep pace with Kirk Cousins and the Vikings. Stafford is fully capable of huge games like this on any given Sunday, and with Kerryon Johnson (knee) unsure ahead of Week 8, the quarterback may be asked to sling it a little more than usual.

Matthew Stafford does little in loss

Matthew Stafford completed 18 of 32 pass attempts for 265 yards, adding three carries for nine yards in the Lions’ 23-22 loss to the Packers on Monday.

Fantasy Impact

Stafford didn't turn the ball over, but he couldn't get the Lions on the board with his arm in this game. It was an understandably tough afternoon against a strong Green Bay defense, and another divisional matchup awaits in Week 7 with a game against the Vikings.

Matthew Stafford has big game against Chiefs

Matthew Stafford completed 21 of 34 pass attempts for 291 yards, three TDs, and no picks in the Lions’ 34-30 loss to the Chiefs on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

He added two carries for 18 yards. It was another solid effort for Stafford, who led the Lions to a near-victory against the surging Chiefs. Stafford was able to exploit a poor Kansas City defense, and he'll head into the bye week with his Lions sitting at a 2-1-1 record.

Matthew Stafford officially active for Week 4

Matthew Stafford will play in Week 4.

Fantasy Impact

Stafford could be in line for a big day but there should be concern with anyone counting on Stafford. His hip injury popped up onto the injury report late in the week and has progressively gotten worse.

Matthew Stafford expected to play Week 4

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport is reporting Lions QB Matthew Stafford (hip) is expected to play in Week 4.

Fantasy Impact

Although he was a late addition to the injury report and a late-week limited practice participant with a hip injury, Stafford is still expected to play in Sunday's home matchup with Kansas City. However, reports suggest that his pain "got worse" as the week went on, which isn't a good sign. While he will likely play, there is a chance he might not finish the game, especially if Kansas City blows it open early and puts the game out of reach. Despite the plus matchup at home, Stafford is a risky fantasy play for Week 4.
