View More Notes

Stafford continues to thrive under Jim Bob Cooter's offense, as he's taken on two tough defenses in the Cardinals and the Giants and emerged with an average of 25 fantasy points. The Falcons defense is not a pushover, but it has allowed 34 passing touchdowns since the beginning of 2016, and this game is expected to be a shootout. Stafford is a firm QB1 in this matchup, and could be considered a top-five option.

Matthew Stafford throws for a pair of scores in Lions' win

Matthew Stafford completed 15 of 21 passes for 122 yards and two touchdowns Monday night in the Lions' 24-10 win over the Giants. Stafford also lost one fumble.

Fantasy Impact

Stafford was efficient against a stout New York defense. Expect bigger numbers in future starts. Start him going forward as a back-end QB1 in an offense predicated on the pass.
