After bouncing back from a disastrous Week 1, Stafford has already attempted 99 passes in two games. Although the Patriots are vulnerable against a run, he should keep throwing in a shootout after watching their secondary get shredded by Blake Bortles.

Matthew Stafford throws for 347 yards in Week 2 loss

Matthew Stafford put up 347 passing yards and three scores but it wasn't enough as the Lions lost to the 49ers 30-27. Stafford completed 34-of-53 passes and had one carry for eight yards.

Fantasy Impact

It was a big bounce-back effort from Stafford after the four picks he threw on Monday night. Stafford was forced to throw 53 times with the Lions trailing by 14 points entering the fourth quarter. The Lions continue to get very little from their ground game and if the defense is going to give up 30-plus points per week then Stafford will continue to air it out frequently. It should be a similar game script in Week 3 with the Patriots coming to Detroit on Sunday night.
