In a game that projects to be one of the higher-scoring contests of the week, you want to get Stafford into lineups. He lit up the Saints in the dome last year for 341 yards and two touchdowns, and might just have better artillery at his disposal this time around. The Saints have allowed two top-three performances already this season and the Lions defense cannot contain Drew Brees. This is a dream scenario for Stafford.

Matthew Stafford throws three touchdowns with five turnovers in Week 6 loss

It was a rough outing for Stafford, who completed 25-of-52 passes for 312 yards, throwing three touchdowns and three interceptions. He also lost two fumbles on the day.

Fantasy Impact

The Lions fell behind 45-10 early in the game, and it was an all-out passing attack from the Lions afterwards. Stafford put together a potential comeback in the second half with two touchdown passes, but two late interceptions sealed the loss. Stafford will enjoy a much needed bye week to recover from injuries and prepare for a tough Steelers defense in Week 8.
