Dan Harris

 Stafford threw for 381 yards against the Bucs, but had just one touchdown to two interceptions. He'll now take on a very tough Chicago defense that allows just the seventh-fewest fantasy points to opposing quarterbacks and which has allowed just 15 passing touchdowns this year. It's a must-win game for the Lions, and Stafford did throw two touchdown passes against the Bears back in Week 11, so he should be considered a low-end QB1, as he usually is.

Big Ben had a 500-yard game last week and he has 14 touchdowns and just 4 picks in his last four games. Sunday's game figures to be a shootout. The Bears are 5th against fantasy quarterbacks and Stafford has only 2 TD passes in his last 2 games. Stafford is more of a QB2 this week.
