 Stafford started the season playing steady football, but over the past five games, he hasn't reached 18 fantasy points once. This week that should change, but don't buy into the narrative that he is in line to take over the world this week.
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
The Giants are 4th against fantasy quarterbacks over the last 5 weeks, but nobody has an answer for this offense that is starting to play better the last 3 weeks. The Saints D is 10th against fantasy quarterbacks the last five weeks, but they also just gave up 3 touchdown passes to Rams rookie QB Jared Goff. I like Stafford as a QB1 option.

Big Ben destroys at home, so I'm not worried about an improved Giants DSaints D and huge game mean Stafford will come out to play
