Matthew Stafford wants to be traded?

Michael Silver is reporting that, according to some general managers and coaches around the league, Matthew Stafford wants the Lions to trade him.

Fantasy Impact

There have been trade rumors involving Stafford lately, and the expectation was that the team was interested in exploring options as they continue their rebuild. However, now it looks like Stafford could be the one asking out of Detroit. The Lions are no longer slinging the ball around like they were, which has limited Stafford's ceiling over the years. Still, he has decent weapons to work with and will again be in the QB1 conversation if he remains in Detroit. He's currently the QB13 in our expert consensus rankings.

Matthew Stafford expected to be 'full-go' for Lions' offseason program

Lions general manager Bob Quinn told reporters that quarterback Matthew Stafford has already resumed working out and should be "full-go" in time for the team's offseason program. Stafford landed on IR in 2019 due to back and hip injuries.

Fantasy Impact

Stafford was able to produce before succumbing to injuries in 2019. He should have a nice stable of pass-catchers available to him in Kenny Golladay, Marvin Jones, the recently re-signed Danny Amendola, and tight end T.J. Hockenson. As such, Stafford should again enter the season as a borderline QB1 in 1QB redraft leagues. He's currently the QB13 in our expert consensus rankings.

Matthew Stafford (back/hip) lands on the IR

Matthew Stafford (hip/back) was placed on the injured reserve Tuesday.

Fantasy Impact

Stafford has missed the last six games due to multiple fractures in his back. He was placed on the injured reserve Tuesday, officially ending his season. Stafford finished 2019 with 2,499 yards, 19 touchdowns and five interceptions across eight games. The Lions will look to David Blough and Kyle Sloter as their quarterbacks for the remainder of the season.

Matthew Stafford (back) ruled out for Week 12

Matthew Stafford will not play on Sunday when the Lions face off against Washington. Stafford continues to rehab his fractured back.

Fantasy Impact

Stafford being out comes at no surprise, which means that Jeff Driskel will lead the Lions' offense in Washington. Remove Stafford from your lineups if you were holding out to play him. The veteran quarterback remains week-to-week with his back fractures.

Matthew Stafford (back) remans week to week

Head coach Matt Patrica stated that Matthew Stafford remains week to week with his back injury.

Fantasy Impact

Stafford is dealing with a fractured back, an injury that could cost him up to six weeks in total. Jeff Driskel will continue to start and drain the fantasy values of Kenny Golladay and Marvin Jones. Driskel has been a surprising fantasy asset in Stafford's absence and will continue to boast high end QB2 upside against Washington in Week 12.
