In order to keep up with Aaron Rodgers at Green Bay, Jim Bob Cooter will be forced to throw the ball 30+ times with Stafford, who has been sensational since Cooter took over the offense. Don't be surprised if he racks up 3 or 4 touchdowns in this high-scoring affair. 
FantasyPros Staff
FantasyPros
Stafford has one of the most favorable schedules for a quarterback in fantasy football. He has produced 0.49 fantasy points per drop back through two games. Stafford has a tougher matchup against the Packers defense in Week 3, but we still view him as a low end QB1. Flacco has one of the highest quarterback depth per aimed throw (10.2) through two games. We view him as QB1 in a plus matchup against a Jaguars defense that has allowed the fifth most fantasy points per game to opposing quarterbacks through two games.

The Packers secondary was a mess on Sunday, Stafford has QB1 upside this week in a good matchup.
