Matthew Stafford Week 2 Outlook - Rams at Colts

By Kyle Yates (FantasyPros), Fri, Sep 17th 2021, 3:25pm EDT

Rams fans, how are you feeling about the QB upgrade after one week?! Stafford looked unstoppable in week one against the Bears defense and he consistently took advantage of poor defensive coverages or breakdowns in communication for big plays. Last season, Jared Goff was consistently holding this offense back with his tendency to keep the ball near the line of scrimmage - as evidenced by his 6.7 ADOT from 2020 - and Stafford has blown the doors open for this offense and what it can do. Through one week, Stafford is already towards the top of the NFL in ADOT with 10.3 and he's showing that he's constantly looking for the big downfield play. That type of play worked last week against Indianapolis for Seattle and you can better believe that Stafford's going to try to replicate exactly what Russ did with Lockett here in this matchup. Moving forward, Stafford belongs in the top-12 of QB rankings every single week. Start him with confidence here.
