Gone are the days where Stafford will throw 650 and even 700 passes, so he won't be that top 5 fantasy QB, but there is plenty of reason to grab him as your second, or better yet, third QB in a SuperFlex league. He has two quality receivers and has no threat to lose his job. He has finished as a top 10 fantasy QB in three of the last four seasons after all.

2018 was a year to forget for Stafford, as he posted the worst numbers since his rookie season. He'd been about as predictable as they come for eight years, posting QB1 numbers at least 37.5 percent of the time in every season (while hitting 50-plus percent twice), but hit just 12.5 percent of the time in 2018. Did the new coaching staff hurt him that much? He's been a better fantasy quarterback throughout his career than Ben Roethlisberger has been, though you wouldn't know it by their draft positions.

31 yo 3700 yards and 21 TDs. Prayers for his wife after having brain surgery. I can only think that problems on the homefront are somewhat behind the season he had in 2018. In comes OC Darrell Bevell and a new TE in Hockenson. He must improve this season.
