QB - LAR
Week 13 Outlook
Stafford had his best fantasy outing of the season last week as the QB7 in fantasy, which was fueled by four passing scores. That was only the second game of the season in which Stafford has had multiple passing touchdowns. Outside of the passing touchdown variance assisting Stafford, he has not played well since his return. Since Week 11 among 30 qualifying quarterbacks, Stafford ranks 18th in yards per attempt, 19th in CPOE, 21st in highly accurate throw rate, and 16th in catchable throw rate. The Rams should look to limit Stafford's passing attempts this week against a secondary that, since Week 7, has allowed the fourth-lowest yards per attempt, the sixth-lowest CPOE, and the fourth-lowest adjusted completion rate. Week 13 Positional Value: QB2
On one hand, Stafford is fresh off a four-touchdown game against Arizona, which is why he was featured in last week's article. On the other hand, the Rams now face two of the best defenses in the NFL. Tread lightly, especially if Cooper Kupp misses a lot of practice with his ankle injury. Stafford is having an up and down season, so pegging his production will be difficult.
