Arizona is 7th against fantasy quarterbacks and the Lions still have not had Kenny Golladay play this season. He is expected to suit up this week, which should make Stafford an upside QB2.The Jets are just 26th against fantasy quarterbacks, but Rivers has shown to be no more than a QB2 early in the season.
