Gone are the days where Stafford will throw 650 and even 700 passes, so he won't be that top 5 fantasy QB, but there is plenty of reason to grab him as your second, or better yet, third QB in a SuperFlex league. He has two quality receivers and has no threat to lose his job. He has finished as a top 10 fantasy QB in three of the last four seasons after all.Dalton doesn't have the strongest track record, but he is still a starting quarterback with enough job security that you can trust him as your third option in a SuperFlex league. What's more, is that with a full season of A.J. Green and now a new offensive mind taking over in Zac Taylor, there may be upside for him to finish in the top 15.
