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.Ryan has quietly delivered a fairly low-floor, low-ceiling 2017 campaign, as he's surpassed 20 fantasy points just twice this season. The Bucs have allowed the most passing yards of any team this season, and Ryan did throw for 317 yards against them back in Week 12. But at this point, Ryan is coming off of two awful fantasy games in a row, and hasn't yet come close to delivering an elite performance in any game this season. He's just a borderline QB1 this week.

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.The Buccaneers are just 24th against fantasy quarterbacks, Ryan should have QB1 appeal on the road.
