Raise your hand if you knew Stafford was a top 10 QB each of the past two seasons. That's what I thought. Stafford is still young in QB-years and has two 4,900 passing seasons under his belt already so we know the upside is there. Factor in the six straight seasons with at least 592 pass attempts and you should be feeling great about his reliability as a QB2.

Matthew Stafford could receive extension in the coming weeks

NFL Network's Stacey Dales is reporting Detroit Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford could receive a contract extension within the coming weeks.

Fantasy Impact

Dales is adding that the No. 1 priority for the Lions is re-signing Stafford, their franchise signal caller. "There is internal optimism that they are going to get something done within the next two weeks," Dales said via Total Access. Although Stafford dons a winless, 0-3 record in the postseason, the Lions are confident that he can eventually get the team over the hump. I don't expect Stafford to reach the open market in 2018. In the wake of Derek Carr's recent extension, Stafford could command somewhere in between the range of $24-to-$26 million per year.
