Bobby Sylvester
FantasyPros
Stafford was quite good last week, but it was just the first time since Week 7 that he posted even 20 fantasy points in a game. Don't be quick to forget how terrible he was against Chicago earlier in the season, too.The past three weeks have made Matt Ryan seem more like his usual self rather than the surprise fantasy owners have gotten early this season. He is not neccessarily a surefire start this week in an away game versus the Rams.
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
The Bears have allowed the fourth fewest points to fantasy quarterbacks over the last 5 weeks, but Stafford should continue to be an elite QB1 at home.The Rams D tends to play better at home and with WR Julio Jones not right, Ryan is probably more of a high-end QB2 this week.
