It was a disappointing fantasy day for Stafford last week, as the Jaguars just didn't keep the game close enough to warrant pass attempts out of the Lions offense. Because of that, Stafford totaled just 31 pass attempts, a number that he's now been stuck at for the last three games. Will it change in Week 7? Yes. Opponents have averaged a massive 39.8 pass attempts per game against the Falcons, which is the second most in the league. As a whole, the Falcons are allowing a massive 1.85 fantasy points per play to opponents. Just how bad is that? There is no other team in the league allowing more than 1.62 points per play. Between the quarterbacks, running backs, wide receivers, and tight ends, the Falcons are allowing a massive 120.3 fantasy points per game, which is the most in the NFL. It may have started out poorly for Kirk Cousins last week, but he ultimately came through and scored 23.7 fantasy points. The Falcons have now played six games; there hasn't been a single one where the opposing quarterback(s) have scored fewer than 20.8 fantasy points. The 8.67 yards per attempt they've allowed is the most in the league, as are the 149.8 points they've allowed through the air alone, which is where Stafford makes his mark. In fact, there's not another team who's allowed more than 124.5 points through the air, highlighting just how great the matchup is. Stafford should be started as a rock-solid QB1 this week who has top-three potential in this matchup.
